lyrics

In the morning paper, I see the wars
and all the people settling scores.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Our brave men die on battlefields
never knowing what is real.
Just doing what their orders say.

We trust our lives to lying hands
not knowing how to change the plan.
When will we turn and make a stand
across the world? Heal the dying man.
Let’s start at home, where you and I can.

Learn how to see. Learn how to love.
Learn how to be as in heaven above.
Learn how to learn to live and let live.
Learn to believe and learn to forgive.

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

There’s no difference in color or creed,
religion, race or ethnic seed.
We’re all just flesh and blood underneath.
Men and women, children too
living, breathing, making do.
We forget no star is out of reach.

We hear the call, but walk on by.
We don’t believe that you and I
can make a difference. So why even try?
But I know love,
love is standing by.
Don’t give up, don’t let her die.

Learn how to see. Learn how to love.
Learn how to be as in heaven above.
Learn how to learn to live and let live.
Learn to believe and learn to forgive.

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

Love knows the way.
If you look you’ll find the light in every day.
Love knows the truth.
So try to be the love in every room.
It could be you.

When the earth is calling out in pain
as oil spills from in her veins
into the waters of her seas,
her creatures die or starve to death
and dolphin’s drown in fisher’s nets;
but few are listening to her pleas.

With coal for power, the mother bleeds.
We strip her lands and cut her trees.
We take more than we ever need
all in the name of corporate greed.
Make today the day we all are freed.

Learn how to see. Learn how to love.
Learn how to be as in heaven above.
Learn how to learn to live and let live.
Learn to believe and learn to forgive.

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

Be the change.
Let love show the way.
