Every night before I go to sleep
I thank the lord down on my knees
For the bare necessities
Food, water, shelter, love

We're so busy judging right from wrong
Rich and poor, weak and strong
When all we need our whole life long
Is food, water, shelter, love

We can soldier on through each day
If we have a home to keep our family safe
And if your heart can be warmed by somebody's love
That's enough

People go hungry struggle to survive
While we fly New York to London in the blink of an eye
Why must it be so hard to provide
Food, water, shelter, love

We can soldier on thru each day
If we have a home to keep our family safe
And if your heart can be warmed by somebody's love
That's enough

Every night before I go to sleep
I thank the lord down on my knees
For the bare necessities
Food, water, shelter, love
Food, water, shelter, love
