Earth--Lyrics

By David Roth

VERSE 1 Dream of a day when we can live without anger. Dream of a time when we can live without pain. Dream of a way that we can live without hunger, And dream of a sign that the Earth can be peaceful again.

What can we do to get our people looking higher? 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.

CHORUS 1 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.

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE 2 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.

CHORUS 2 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.

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE 3 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 working together, And know that the time when the Earth can be peaceful is near.

CODA 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.
