A song is rising in my heart
I can’t turn off the sound
It’s on the breeze, it’s in the air
It swells up from the ground
And could I be imagining
That others hear it too
A world of peace
Begins with me and you

red-flower-against-blurred-goldWe need each other
To build a world beyond all war
We need each other
We all know that life is worth much more

One small voice to start the music
First it’s mine, then yours
One to one and to another
Growing till it roars
Behind a face, beneath the skin
We’re all the same inside
Each of us
Can keep the flame alive
