They say the beat of a butterfly's wings
Can set off a storm in the world away
What if they're right and the smallest of things
Can power the strongest hurricane
What if it all begins inside
We hold the key that turns the tide.

Just a pebble in the water ooh
Can set the sea in motion ooh
A simple act of kindness ohh
Can stir the widest ocean
If we show a little love (oh a little love)
Heaven knows what we could change
Oh yeah
So throw a pebble in the water
Oh yeah
Make a wave
Make a wave
Make a wave
Make a wave

The single joy to take a stand
Touch your hand to someone in need
Help somebody
Don't fool yourself and say you can't
You never know what can grow
From just one seed
Yeah
So come with me and seize the day
This world may never be the same

Just a pebble in the water (just a pebble in the water)
Can set the sea in motion (set the sea in motion)
A simple act of kindness ohh woah
Can stir the widest ocean (can stir the widest ocean)(ocean)
If we show a little love (if we show a little love)
Heaven knows what we could change (Heaven knows what we could change)
Throw a pebble in the water (Throw a pebble in the water)
Make a wave
Make a wave
Make a wave
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Make a wave
Make a wave
Make a wave

Show a little love
Gonna make a wave
Seize the day (make a wave yeah)
Heaven knows what we could change oohh

So let's show a little love
You never know what we could change
So just throw a pebble in the water
Hmm
Make a wave
Make a wave
Ohh woah
Ohhh

    i don't like how this is the new friends for change song.not that i don't like it,cuz it's awesome!what do you think i searched it for?but send it on was better!it totally was.you can't tell me i'm wrong.and is it just me but is it that joe got all the bad lyrics.i laughed when they talked about seizing the day.it made me laugh so hard for some reason i almost fell out of my chair!i just imagined then literally seizing the day.this song and friends for change is awesome.i think they can change the world.and they can really start by changing the send it on song back.not just demi (and joe) shined in the song,but nick,miley,demi,joe,selena(and kevin)(a little)(i wish kevin had sung more :( )all in all,good song but send it on was better.agree with me.

    :D
