Idan Raichel – Gift Of Acceptance lyrics

Some believe it's rigt to say Jesus when you pray,
Some believe Mahommed, Allah, or Buddah are the way.
Instead of a God or pantheon of gods up in the sky,
I'll honour your choices and you can honour mine.

Whether you are red, black, yellow, brown or white,
A man with a husband or a woman with a wife,
We can debate till the end of time who's wrong and who is right,
Or I can honour your choices and you can honour mine.

--Chorus--
We all want the same things from life,
We want peace, love and prosperity.
But can we give up our need to be right?
Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.
Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.

Some believe that God's a him and some say he's a her.
Does God live here in our hearts or out in the universe?
Ghandi was a Hindu, Martin Luther King a Christian,
Regardless of religion they knew love was the mission.

--Chorus--
We all want the same things from life,
We want peace, love and prosperity.
But can we give up our need to be right?
Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.
Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.

We can debate to the end of time who's wrong and who is right,
Or I can honour your choices and you can honour mine.
They call you Israeli and they call me an American,
I look at you and I don't see a country, I just see my friend,
I pray we're in each other's lives for a long,
Long time Because I honour your choices and you honour mine.

--Chorus--
We all want the same things from life,
We want peace, love and prosperity.
But can we give up our need to be right?
Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.
Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.
