One World

by David Downes


I hear a baby crying

A sad sound, a lonely sound

I want to take her in my arms

And then I dry away all her tears 


I see a boy, who's frightened

A young boy, with old eyes

I long to say 'You're welcome here,

You can be happy now that you're home'

 

We're all a part of one world

We all can share the same dream

And if you just reach out to me

Then you will find deep down inside

I'm just like you

 

Loud voices raised in anger

Speak harsh words, such cruel words

Why do they speak so selfishly

When we have got so much we can share?

 

So let your hearts be open

And reach out with all your love

There are no strangers now

They are our brothers now

And we are one

 

We're all a part of one world

We all can share the same dream

And if you just reach out to me

Then will find deep down inside

I'm just like you

 

We're all a part of one world

We all can share the same dream

And if you just reach out to me

Then will find deep down inside

I'm just like you
