SInging Of A Better World

I see what people do
I hear what people say
I know theres trouble everywhere
I see ít everyday

Some things won't get better
Some people won't get through

But I can dream of a better world
If I want to

If I want to imagine
Peace on every land
I close my eyes
And dream my dreams

In dreams I make a stand
Anytime I start missing
Human harmony
I listen hard
Until I hear the music ínside of me

I can sing of a better world
if I want to
I can dream of a better world
if I want to
And I want to

You walk down any street
You don't know what you'll find
Sometimes it takes me all I have
To face a world unkind

I won't give up trying
I won't just let it go
I still believe
you can plant a dream
If you want to.
