You know every now and then it's just nice
To do it with me
You know what I mean?
There's a dream I keep dreamin'
Somehow it just won't seem to go away
Lord, if I can make, make someone
Else believe it
It just might come true someday, oh
Imagine people lovin' people, well well
No sign of hatred in their eyes
Where children grow up
Without hunger or sorrow
I'd like to live, live in a world where no one cries
Oh, just let me live in a world where no one cries
Oh, it's just a dream, just a dream to me
Oh, one day, one day it just might become a reality
Oh, the people in the world, if they can only see
What would this world be like
If everyone were singin' in the same key to me, that's harmony
And there are those, who say I am foolish
To think things that could never never be
Oh, how can they expect to reach out, reach out to somethin'
That their mind refuse to see, ooh
Let me live, let me live in a world where no one cries
Just let me live in a world where no one cries
No matter where I, road will lead me
Always keep the dream, keep the dream alive
But I can wake up, you find that I am livin'
Livin' in a world
Livin' in a world where no one cries
Just let me live
Live in a world where no one cries
Everyday, everyday would be like Sunday
Oh yes, it will
I know, I know, I know, I know, I will
Listen, let me tell you my story
Why can't we?
Why can't we, we just respect each other
