Give Peace a Chance 2018

All we are saying, is give peace a chance
All we are saying, is give peace a chance


What is going on? What's up with all this division?
All over the country. No matter where you’re living
People want to lash out for no good reason
Not knowing the root of that anger. Overreacting to negative feelings
But where did those negative feelings come from?
Am I just living conditioning programmed from when I was young?
Contradicting all the Love I feel inside of me
Got stockpiles of positive vibes I just want to set free
Hard for me to deny Peace & Love are the right way
Yet so many people want to hate & fight. Deny that it might take
Getting along if we’re to get where we’re going
Good deeds & vibes help the good stuff just keep growing
I’d rather live in a world where we smile and greet each other
Where the color of skin makes no difference to how we treat each other
No matter you religion, or me, I’m a person of faith
It’s all the same we’re all from the same Place

 

All we are saying, is give peace a chance
All we are saying, is give peace a chance

 

Change isn’t easy. Doesn’t happen overnight
Takes time to coming around to no need to fight
Kindness and respect for each other
Tapping into our human Spirit which connects one another
Everyone with a pulse. We’re all from the same Tribe
Counterproductive to throw shade on the same side
Hates a waste of time. What’s with all the rage?
Gets in the way of getting everyone on the same page
That last page with a fairytale ending
Elevating us to the next level with all the Peace & Love we keep sending
To every Soul since we’re equal parts of the same One
No matter the differences, we bask in the glow of the same Sun
I found getting along is easier and more fun
And teamwork helps with getting more done
Unclench our fists. Throw up Peace signs instead
Work out our differences with Love in our hearts and heads

 

All we are saying, is give peace a chance
All we are saying, is give peace a chance

 

This is a call for Peace everywhere
As we breathe more words of Peace into the air
No violence or negative actions to retaliate
That only fans the flames of bigotry and hate
I respond with restraint, but make a commitment
To be a part of unification while condemning hate & division
This is about Love, it’s why we're all here
Harmonious Peace is one way to get us all there

 

All we are saying, is give peace a chance
All we are saying, is give peace a chance
