By David Roth
Dream of a day when we can live
Dream of a time when we can live
Dream of a way that we can live
And dream of a sign that the Earth
can be peaceful again.
What can we do to get our people
What do you do in the darkness
but look for the light.
We can join hands and do
whatever we desire,
And we'll never fail as long as
our reasons are right.
We're gonna live in peace.
It's our only chance on earth.
Get all that fighting to cease,
And remember what life is worth.
Each of us has the power
to bring about changes,
Though society separates us
from the time of our birth.
Well we won't live here much longer
if we live as strangers,
And no time at all if we don't learn
to live with the earth.
Combining our efforts
instead of being parted,
Sharing a vision that we will
have a new dawn,
Remember that love is
how it all got started,
And don't you know that love will
keep going even after we're gone.
What can we give the Earth
That we haven't given in the past?
A way to live here on Earth,
Make it last and last and last.
Dream of a day when we can
live in communion.
Dream of a time when we can
live without fear.
We can awaken all of us
And know that the time when the Earth can be peaceful is near.
And know that our thoughts and
our actions are honest and clear,
And know that all people on earth
will be safe from all fear.
Know that the time when the Earth
can be peaceful is here.
