My Feet are Planted Down, Unknown Author

 

My feet are planted down

Like the roots of a tree

My arms are open

To the wind

Open To the sky

Open To the rain

Like a heart that is opening to you

Peace Song (by a woman from Woman’s Land Community)

 

When everyone in the world

Gets their mind set on freedom

When everyone in the world

Dreams the sweet dream of peace

 

When everyone from the every nation

Young and old

All generations

Puts their hands out in the name of love

There will be no more war

Alternate ending: There will be peace on earth

 

#3

Building Bridges (unknown author)

 

Building bridges between our divisions

I reach out to you

Will you reach out to me?

Through all of our choices

And all our decisions

Friends we can make

Such sweet harmony

I am brilliantly resilient

I am brilliantly resilient

I am brilliantly resilient

I am resiliently brilliant

I am resiliently brilliant

I am resiliently brilliant

I am I am

Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody by Joan Baez

 

Ain’t gonna let nobody, turn me around

Turn me around, turn me around

Ain’t gonna let nobody, turn me around

 

Keep on a walkin, keep on a talkin

Gonna build a brand new world

Singing for Our Lives (by Holly Near)

 

We are a gentle, angry people

And we are singing, singing for our lives(2x)

 

We are a justice-seeking people

And we are singing, singing for our lives (2x)

 

We are young and old together

And we are singing, singing for our lives(2x)

 

We are a land of many colors

And we are singing, singing for our lives(2x)

 

We are gay and straight together

And we are singing, singing for our lives(2x)

 

We are cis and trans together

And we are singing, singing for our lives(2x)

 

We are a gentle, loving people

And we are singing, singing for our lives(2x)

Where Have All the Flowers Gone by Pete Seeger

 

Where have all the flowers gone?

Long time passing

Where have all the flowers gone?

Long time ago

Where have all the flowers gone?

Girls have picked them every one

When will they ever learn?

When will they ever learn?

 

Where have all the young girls gone?

Long time passing

Where have all the young girls gone?

Long time ago

Where have all the young girls gone?

Taken husbands every one

When will they ever learn?

When will they ever learn?

 

Where have all the young men gone?

Long time passing

Where have all the young men gone?

Long time ago

Where have all the young men gone?

Gone for soldiers every one

When will they ever learn?

When will they ever learn?

 

Where have all the soldiers gone?

Long time passing

Where have all the soldiers gone?

Long time ago

Where…

And everyone beneath the vine and fig tree

 

And everyone beneath the vine and fig tree

shall live in peace and have no fear.

And everyone beneath the vine and fig tree

shall live in peace and have no fear.

 

And into plowshares turn their swords,

nations shall learn war no more.

And into plowshares turn their swords,

nations shall learn war no more.

“Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream”(by Pete Seeger)

 

Last night I had the strangest dream

I ever dreamed before

I dreamed the world had all agreed

To put an end to war

 

I dreamed I saw a mighty room

The room was filled with men

And the paper they were signing said

They’d never fight again

 

And when the papers all were signed

And a million copies made

They all joined hands and bowed their heads

And grateful prayers were prayed

 

And the people in the streets below

Were dancing round and round

And guns and swords and uniforms

Were scattered on the ground

 

Last night I had the strangest dream

I ever dreamed before

I dreamed the world had all agreed

To put an end to war

WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED (Civil Rights Song)

 

We shall not, we shall not be moved

 

(shall not be)

 

We shall not, we shall not be moved

 

Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,

 

We shall not be moved.

 

#11

“We Shall Overcome”

 

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart,

I do believe

We shall overcome, some day.

 

We’ll walk hand in hand,

We’ll walk hand in hand,

We’ll walk hand in hand, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart…

 

We shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart…

 

We shall all be free,

We shall all be free,

We shall all be free, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart…

 

We are not afraid,

We are not afraid,

We are not afraid, TODAY

Oh, deep in my heart…

 

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart,

I do believe

We shall overcome, some day.

Bread and Roses inspired by James Oppenheim

 

As we go marching, marching,

in the beauty of the day

A million darkened kitchens,

a thousand mill lofts gray

Are touched with all the radiance

that a sudden sun discloses

For the people hear us singing,

bread and roses, bread and roses.

 

As we come marching, marching,

we battle too, for men,

For they are in the struggle and

together we shall win.

Our days shall not be sweated

from birth until life closes,

Hearts starve as well as bodies,

give us bread, but give us roses.

 

As we come marching, marching,

un-numbered women dead

Go crying through our singing

their ancient call for bread,

Small art and love and beauty

their trudging spirits knew

Yes, it is bread we. fight for,

 

but we fight for roses, too.

As we go marching, marching,

we’re standing proud and tall.

The rising of the women

means the rising of us all.

No more the drudge and idler,

ten that toil where one reposes,

But a sharing of life’s glories,

bread and roses, bread and roses.

Peace Call by Woody Guthrie

 

Open your hearts to the paradise,

To the peace of the heavenly angels,

Takes away that woeful shadow dancing on your wall;

Take to the skies of peace, oh friends,

Of peace of the heavenly Father;

Get ready for my bugle call of peace.

 

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the bugle sounding,

Roaming around my land, my city and my town;

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the horn and voices ring louder,

While my bugle calls for peace.

 

Thick war clouds will throw its shadows,

Darkening the world around you,

But in my life of peace your dark illusions fall;

Think and pray my union way,

Kiss everybody around you;

Get ready for my bugle call of peace.

 

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the bugle sounding,

Roaming around my land, my city and my town;

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the horn and voices ring louder,

While my bugle calls for peace.

 

If these war storms fill your heart

With a thousand kinds of worry,

Keep to my road of peace, you’ll never have to fear;

Keep in the sun and look around

In the face of peace and plenty;

Get ready for my bugle call of peace.

 

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the bugle sounding,

Roaming around my land, my city and my town;

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the horn and voices ring louder,

While my bugle calls for peace.

 

I’ll clear my house of the weeds of fear

And turn to the friends around me,

With my smile of peace, I’ll greet you one and all;

I’ll work, I’ll fight, I’ll sing and dance,

Of peace of the youthful spirit;

Get ready for my bugle call of peace.

 

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the bugle sounding,

Roaming around my land, my city and my town;

Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace.

I can hear the horn and voices ring louder,

While my bugle calls for peace.

“Universal Soldier” by Buffy St. Marie

 

He’s five foot-two, and he’s six feet-four,

He fights with missiles and with spears.

He’s all of thirty-one, and he’s only seventeen,

Been a soldier for a thousand years.

 

He’a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,

A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.

And he knows he shouldn’t kill,

And he knows he always will,

Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

 

And he’s fighting for Canada,

He’s fighting for France,

He’s fighting for the USA,

And he’s fighting for the Russians,

And he’s fighting for Japan,

And he thinks we’ll put an end to war this way.

 

And he’s fighting for Democracy,

He’s fighting for the Reds,

He says it’s for the peace of all.

He’s the one who must decide,

Who’s to live and who’s to die,

And he never sees the writing on the wall.

 

But without him,

How would Hitler have condemned them at Dachau?

Without him Caesar would have stood alone,

He’s the one who gives his body

As a weapon of the war,

And without him all this killing can’t go on.

 

He’s the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,

His orders come from far away no more,

They come from here and there and you and me,

And brothers can’t you see,

This is not the way we put the end to war.

When I Get Mad by Clearing by Noon

 

(Chorus:)

When I get mad (when I get mad)

You get madder (you get madder)

And when I yell (and when I yell)

You yell louder (you yell louder)

I’m afraid you’ll hit (I’m afraid you’ll hit)

And I’ll hit back (and I’ll hit back)

We’ve got to stop – before it gets to that!

 

You wouldn’t let me play with you

You even took my ball

You said you didn’t like me anymore.

First I was sad, then I got mad

Wanted to even up the score.

 

But (Chorus)

 

And when I asked you “why?” you said,

“You called me names,

and when we were playing games, you left me out.”

I’m sorry that I hurt you

I’m glad you told me so

It’s better when we talk instead of shout.

 

‘Cuz (Chorus)

 

(Bridge:)

If I listen to you, and you listen to me,

with an open heart,

Do you think, we could be friends again

ready for a new start?

 

‘Cuz (Chorus)

“Union” By Black Eyed Peas

 

[Chorus]

(One for all, one for all)

(It’s all it’s all for one)

Let’s start a union, calling every human

It’s one for all and all for one

Let’s live in unison, calling every citizen

It’s one for all and all for one

 

We don’t want war- can’t take no more

It’s drastic time for sure

We need an antidote and a cure

Coz do you really think Mohammed got a problem with Jehovah

We don’t want war – imagine if any prophet was alive

In current days amongst you and I

You think they’d view life like you and I do

Or would they sit and contemplate on why

Do we live this way, act and behave this way

We still live in primitive today

Coz the peace in the destination of war can’t be the way

There’s no way, so people just be a woman, be a man

Realize that you can’t change the world by changing yourself

And understand that we’re all just the same

So when I count to three let’s change

 

[Chorus]

 

Got no time for grand philosophy

I barely keep my head above the tide

I got this mortgage, got three kids at school

What you’re saying is the truth, but really troubles me inside

I’d change the world if I could change my mind

If I could live beyond my fears

Exchanging unity for all my insecurity

Exchanging laughter for my tears

 

[Chorus]

 

I don’t know, y’all, we in a real deposition

In the midst of all this negative condition

Divided by beliefs, differences and religion

Why do we keep missing the point in our mission?

Why are we killing each other, what’s the reason?

God made us all equal in his vision

I wish that I could make music as a religion

Then we could harmonise together in this mission

Listen, I know it’s really hard to make changes

But two of us could help rearrange, discuss

Utilize the power in our voices

Together we will unite and make the right choice

And fight for education, save the next generation

Come together as one

I don’t understand why it’s never been done

So let’s change on the count of one

 

It takes one, just one

And then one follows the other one

And then another follows the other one

Next thing you know you got a billion

People doing some wonderful things

People doing some powerful things

Let’s change and do some powerful things

Unity could be a wonderful thing

 

[Chorus]

“Where Is The Love?” by Black Eyed Peas

 

What’s wrong with the world, mama

People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas

I think the whole world addicted to the drama

Only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma

 

Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism

But we still got terrorists here livin’

In the USA, the big CIA

The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK

 

But if you only have love for your own race

Then you only leave space to discriminate

And to discriminate only generates hate

And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah

 

Madness is what you demonstrate

And that’s exactly how anger works and operates

Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight

Take control of your mind and meditate

Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all

 

People killin’, people dyin’

Children hurt and you hear them cryin’

Can you practice what you preach?

Or would you turn the other cheek?

 

Father, Father, Father help us

Send some guidance from above

‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’

Where is the love (Love)

 

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love, the love, the love

 

It just ain’t the same, old ways have changed

New days are strange, is the world insane?

If love and peace are so strong

Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong?

 

Nations droppin’ bombs

Chemical gasses fillin’ lungs of little ones

With ongoin’ sufferin’ as the youth die young

So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone

 

So I could ask myself really what is goin’ wrong

In this world that we livin’ in people keep on givin’ in

Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends

Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother

A war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover

 

The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug

If you never know truth then you never know love

Where’s the love, y’all, come on (I don’t know)

Where’s the truth, y’all, come on (I don’t know)

Where’s the love, y’all

 

People killin’, people dyin’

Children hurt and you hear them cryin’

Can you practice what you preach?

Or would you turn the other cheek?

 

Father, Father, Father help us

Send some guidance from above

‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’

Where is the love (Love)

 

Where is the love (The love)?

Where is the love (The love)?

Where is the love (The love)?

Where is the love (The love)?

Where is the love (The love)?

Where is the love (The love)?

Where is the love, the love, the love?

 

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder

As I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder

Most of us only care about money makin’

Selfishness got us followin’ the wrong direction

 

Wrong information always shown by the media

Negative images is the main criteria

Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria

Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema

 

Yo’, whatever happened to the values of humanity

Whatever happened to the fairness and equality

Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity

Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity

 

That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under

That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down

There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under

Gotta keep my faith alive ’til love is found

Now ask yourself

 

Where is the love?

Where is the love?

Where is the love?

Where is the love?

 

Father, Father, Father, help us

Send some guidance from above

‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’

Where is the love?

 

Sing with me y’all:

One world, one world (We only got)

One world, one world (That’s all we got)

One world, one world

And something’s wrong with it (Yeah)

Something’s wrong with it (Yeah)

Something’s wrong with the wo-wo-world, yeah

We only got

(One world, one world)

That’s all we got

(One world, one world)

“The Times They Are A-Changin'” By Bob Dylan

 

Come gather ’round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You’ll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you

Is worth savin’

Then you better start swimmin’

Or you’ll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin’.

 

Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon

For the wheel’s still in spin

And there’s no tellin’ who

That it’s namin’

For the loser now

Will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin’.

 

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There’s a battle outside

And it is ragin’

It’ll soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin’.

 

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is

Rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one

If you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’.

 

The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is

Rapidly fadin’

And the first one now

Will later be last

For the times they are a-changin’.

“One Love / People Get Ready” By Bob Marley

 

One Love! One Heart!

Let’s get together and feel all right.

Hear the children cryin’ (One Love!);

Hear the children cryin’ (One Heart!),

Sayin’: give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;

Sayin’: let’s get together and feel all right. Wo wo-wo wo-wo!

 

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love!);

There is one question I’d really love to ask (One Heart!):

Is there a place for the hopeless sinner,

Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own beliefs?

 

One Love! What about the one heart? One Heart!

What about – ? Let’s get together and feel all right

As it was in the beginning (One Love!);

So shall it be in the end (One Heart!),

All right!

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;

Let’s get together and feel all right.

One more thing!

 

Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armagiddyon (One Love!),

So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (One Song!).

Have pity on those whose chances grows t’inner;

There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation.

 

Sayin’: One Love! What about the One Heart? (One Heart!)

What about the – ? Let’s get together and feel all right.

I’m pleadin’ to mankind! (One Love!);

Oh, Lord! (One Heart) Wo-ooh!

 

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;

Let’s get together and feel all right.

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;

Let’s get together and feel all right.

“Can You Feel The Love Tonight” By Elton John

 

There’s a calm surrender to the rush of day

When the heat of a rolling wind can be turned away

An enchanted moment, and it sees me through

It’s enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

 

And can you feel the love tonight?

It is where we are

It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer

That we got this far

 

And can you feel the love tonight?

How it’s laid to rest

It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds

Believe the very best

 

There’s a time for everyone if they only learn

That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn

There’s a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors

When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours

 

And can you feel the love tonight?

It is where we are

It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer

That we got this far

 

And can you feel the love tonight?

How it’s laid to rest

It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds

Believe the very best

 

It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds

Believe the very best

“I’m Still Standing” By Elton John

 

You could never know what it’s like

Your blood like winter freezes just like ice

And there’s a cold lonely light that shines from you

You’ll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use

 

And did you think this fool could never win

Well, look at me, I’m a-coming back again

I got a taste of love in a simple way

And if you need to know while I’m still standing you just fade away

 

Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did

Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid

And I’m still standing after all this time

Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

 

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

 

Once I never could hope to win

You’re starting down the road leaving me again

The threats you made were meant to cut me down

And if our love was just a circus you’d be a clown by now

 

You know I’m still standing better than I ever did

Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid

I’m still standing after all this time

Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

 

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

 

Don’t you know that I’m still standing better than I ever did

Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid

And I’m still standing after all this time

Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

 

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

 

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

 

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m still standing. Yeah, yeah, yeah

“Love Ire & Song” By Frank Turner

 

Well, a teacher of mine once told me

That life was just a list of disappointments and defeats

And you could only do your best,

And I said, “Well, that’s a fucking cop-out, you’re just washed up and you’re tired,

And when I get to your age, well, I won’t be such a coward.”

But these days I sit at home, known to shout at my TV

And Punk Rock didn’t live up to what I’d hoped that it could be

And all the things that I believed with all my heart when I was young

Are just coasters for beers and clean surfaces for drugs

And I packed all my pamphlets with my bibles at the back of the shelf

 

Well, it was bad enough the feeling, and the first time it hit

When you realised your parents had let the world all go to shit

And that the values and ideals for which many had fought and died

Had been killed off in the committees and left to die by the wayside

But it was worse when we turned to the kids on the left

And got let down again by some poor excuse for protest

Yeah by idiot fucking hippies in 50 different factions

Who are locked inside some kind of 60’s battle re-enactment

And I hung up my banner in disgust and I head for the door

 

Oh, but once we were young, and we were crass enough to care

But I guess you live and learn, we won’t make that mistake again, no

Oh, but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win

And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible

 

Well, we’ve been a good few hours drinking

So I’m going to say what everyone’s thinking

If we’re stuck on this ship and it’s sinking

Then we might as well have a parade

Cause if it’s still going to hurt in the morning

And a better plan’s yet to get forming

Then where’s the harm spending an evening

In manning the old barricades?

 

So come on, old friends, to the streets

Let’s be 1905, but not 1917,

Let’s be heroes, let’s be martyrs, let’s be radical thinkers

Who never have to test drive the least of their dreams

Let’s divide up the world into the damned and the saved

And then ride to the valley like the old light brigade

And straighten our backs and we won’t be afraid

And they’ll celebrate our deaths with a national parade

 

So come on, let’s be young, let’s be crass enough to care

Let’s refuse to live and learn, let’s make all our mistakes again, yes

And then darling, just for one day, yeah, we can fight and we can win

And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible

 

Leave the mourning to the morning

Yeah pain can be killed

With aspirin tablets and vitamin pills

But memories of hope, and of glorious defeat

Are a little bit harder to beat

“Hero Of War” by Rise Against

 

He said “Son, have you seen the world?

Well, what would you say if I said that you could?

Just carry this gun and you’ll even get paid”

I said “That sounds pretty good”

 

Black leather boots

Spit-shined so bright

They cut off my hair but it looks alright

We marched and we sang

We all became friends

As we learned how to fight

 

A hero of war

Yeah that’s what I’ll be

And when I come home

They’ll be damn proud of me

I’ll carry this flag

To the grave if I must

Because it’s a flag that I love

And a flag that I trust

 

I kicked in the door

I yelled my commands

The children, they cried

But I got my man

We took him away

A bag over his face

From his family and his friends

 

They took off his clothes

They pissed in his hands

I told them to stop

But then I joined in

We beat him with guns

And batons not just once

But again and again

 

A hero of war

Yeah that’s what I’ll be

And when I come home

They’ll be damn proud of me

I’ll carry this flag

To the grave if I must

Because it’s a flag that I love

And a flag that I trust

 

She walked through bullets and haze

I asked her to stop

I begged her to stay

But she pressed on

So I lifted my gun

And I fired away

 

And the shells jumped through the smoke

And into the sand

That the blood now had soaked

She collapsed with a flag in her hand

A flag white as snow

 

A hero of war

Is that what they see

Just medals and scars

So damn proud of me

And I brought home that flag

Now it gathers dust

But it’s a flag that I love

It’s the only flag I trust

 

He said, “Son, have you seen the world?

Well what would you say, if I said that you could?”

“I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” By Lea Salonga

 

I’d like to build the world a home

And furnish it with love

Grow apple trees and honey bees

And snow-white turtle doves

 

I’d like to teach the world to sing

In perfect harmony

I’d like to hold it in my arms

And keep it company

 

I’d like to see the world for once

All standing hand in hand

And hear them echo through the hills

For peace throughout the land

 

That’s the song I hear

Let the world sing today

A song of peace that it goes on

And never goes away

“I’m Yours” By Jason Mraz

 

Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it

I tried to be chill, but you’re so hot that I melted

I fell right through the cracks

Now I’m trying to get back

 

Before the cool done run out

I’ll be giving it my bestest

And nothing’s gonna stop me but divine intervention.

I reckon, it’s again my turn

To win some or learn some.

 

But I won’t hesitate

No more, no more.

It cannot wait,

I’m yours.

 

Well, open up your mind and see like me,

Open up your plans and damn you’re free.

Look into your heart and you’ll find love, love, love, love.

Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing, we’re just one big family

And it’s our God-forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved

 

So I won’t hesitate

No more, no more.

It cannot wait,

I’m sure.

There’s no need to complicate.

Our time is short.

This is our fate,

I’m yours.

 

Do you want to come on, scooch on over closer, dear

And I will nibble your ear

 

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror

And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer

But my breath fogged up the glass

And so I drew a new face and I laughed.

 

I guess what I’ll be saying is there ain’t no better reason

To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons.

It’s what we aim to do.

Our name is our virtue.

 

But I won’t hesitate

No more, no more.

It cannot wait,

I’m yours.

 

Well, open up your mind and see like me,

Open up your plans and damn you’re free.

Look into your heart and you’ll find that the sky is yours.

So please don’t, please don’t, please don’t…

There’s no need to complicate.

‘Cause our time is short.

This oh, this oh, this is our fate.

I’m yours.

“The World As I See It” by Jason Mraz

 

The world as I see it, is a remarkable place

A beautiful house in a forest, of stars in outer space

From a birds eye view, I can see it has a well-rounded personality

From a birds eye view, I can see we are family

 

It’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

No, it’s not a difficult thing

It’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

Because you are the world to me

 

Yeah the world as I see it, is a remarkable place

Every man makes a difference and every mother’s child is a saint

From a birds eye view I can see, we are spiraling down in gravity

From a birds eye view I can see, you are just like me

 

It’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

No, it’s not a difficult thing

It’s not hard for me to love you

Oh I really love you unconditionally

No, it’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

No, it’s not a difficult thing

It’s not hard for me to love you

Oh I really love you,

Love you are the world to me

 

You are the mountain, you are the rock

You are the cord and you’re the spark

You are the eagle, you are the lark

You are the world and you’re remarkable

You’re the ocean eating the shore

You are the calm inside the storm

You’re every emotion, you can endure

You are the world and the world is yours.

 

It’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

No, it’s not a difficult thing

No, it’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you unconditionally

No, it’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

No, it’s not a difficult thing.

It’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you, because you are the world to me

No, it’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you

No it’s not a difficult thing (No, it’s not a difficult thing)

It’s not hard for me to love you

Hard for me to love you (really it’s not hard),

Because you are the world to me.

Yeah the world as I see it, is a remarkable place

“Imagine” by John Lennon

 

Imagine there’s no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today… Aha-ah…

 

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion, too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace… You…

 

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will be as one

 

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world… You…

 

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will live as one

“Circle Of Life” by Elton John

 

From the day we arrive on the planet

And blinking, step into the sun

There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen

More to do than can ever be done

 

Some say eat or be eaten

Some say live and let live

But all are agreed as they join the stampede

You should never take more than you give

 

In the circle of life

It’s the wheel of fortune

It’s the leap of faith

It’s the band of hope

Till we find our place

On the path unwinding

In the circle, the circle of life

 

Some of us fall by the wayside

And some of us soar to the stars

And some of us sail through our troubles

And some have to live with the scars

 

There’s far too much to take in here

More to find than can ever be found

But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky

Keeps great and small on the endless round

A Peaceful World by Jan and Randy Prichard

Coming together one and all hand in hand, across the land

We see all people of the earth at peace

And we see our future world safe and free

No more pain, no more tears

 

Coming together one and all hand in hand, across the land

We shall live in peace No more hunger and no war

All suffering will cease

Love shall rein forever more

 

We see a peaceful world in unity and we sing a song of love and harmony x3

“Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield

 

I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined

I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

 

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

 

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

 

Oh, oh, oh

 

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines

We’ve been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can’t live that way

 

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

 

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

 

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

 

Staring at the blank page before you

“Wavin’ Flag” by K’naan and Young Artists for Haiti

 

[All]

When I get older

I will be stronger

They’ll call me freedom

Just like a wavin flag

 

[K’naan]

Born from a throne

Older than Rome

But violent prone

Poor people zone

 

[Nelly Furtado]

But it’s my home

All I have known

 

[Sam Roberts]

Where I got grown

but now its gone

 

[Avril Lavigne]

Out of the darkness

in came the carnage

threatening my very survival

 

[Pierre Bouvier of Simple]

Fractured my streets

and broke all my dreams

 

[Tyler Connolly of Theory of a Deadman]

now Feels like defeat to wretched retreat

 

[All]

So we strugglin’

 

[Kardinal Offishall]

Fighting to eat

 

[All]

And we wonderin’

 

[Kardinal Offishall]

If we’ll be free

 

[Jully Black]

We cannot wait for some faithful day

it’s too far away so right now I’ll say

 

[All – Chorus]

When I get older

I will be stronger

They’ll call me freedom

Just like a waving flag

(And then it goes back x3)

 

Ahhho ahhho ahhho

 

[Lights]

So many wars settling scores

 

[Deryck Whibley of Sum 41]

All that we’ve been through

and now there is more

 

[Serena Ryder]

I hear them say love is the way

 

[Jacob Hoggard of Hedley]

Love is the answer that’s what they say

 

[Emily Haines]

But were not just dreamers

of broken down grievers

 

[Hawksley Workman]

Our hand will reach us

and we will not see ya

 

[Drake]

This can’t control us

no it can’t hold us down

 

[Chin Injeti]

We gon pick it up even though we still struggling

 

[Pierre Lapointe]

Au nom de la survie (In the name of survival)

[Pierre Lapointe]

Battant pour nos vies (Fighting for our lives)

 

[All]

We patiently wait

for some other day

 

[Fefe Dobson and Esthero]

thats too far away so right now I say

 

[All – Chorus]

 

[Drake – Rapping]

Uhh… well alright

How come when the media stops covering

and there’s a little help from the government

we forget about the people still struggling

and assume that its really all love again nahh

see we don’t have to wait for things to break apart

if you weren’t involved before it’s never too late to start

you probably think that it’s too far to even have to care

well take a look at where you live what if it happened there?

you have to know the urge to make a change lies within

and we can be the reason that they see the flag rise again

 

[Nikki Yanofsky, Drake]

When I get older

I will be stronger

They’ll call me freedom

Just like a wavin’ flag

 

[15]

and then it goes back

 

[Justin Nozuka]

and then it goes back

 

[Nikki Yanofsky]

Then it goes back

 

[Chorus – All]

 

[Justin Bieber]

When I get older

When I get older

I will be stronger

just like a waving flag

When the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs

A guided light on the dark road your walking on

A sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone

Someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on

Someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone

We are the World connected by a common bond

 

Love the whole planet sing it along

 

[Chorus – All:]

We are the world
