Sometimes I lay
Under the moon
And thank god I'm breathin'
Then I pray
Don't take me soon
'Cause I am here for a reason
Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
Because
All my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
For the people to say
That we don't wanna fight no more
There'll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day x6
It's not about
Win or lose
'Cause we all lose
When they feed on
The souls of the innocent
Blood drenched pavement
Keep on moving though the waters stay ragin'
In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
Might drive you crazy
But don't let it faze you no way (no way)
Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
Because
All my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
For the people to say
That we don't wanna fight no more
There'll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day x6
One day this all will change
Treat people the same
Stop with the violence
Down with the hate
One day we'll all be free
And proud to be
Under the same sun
Singing songs of freedom like...

One day x2

All my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
For the people to say
That we don't wanna fight no more
There'll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day x6

    I believe this is an excellent song with an excellent message. And, contrary to pompilia, i do believe that in a realistic world, people can live in peace with each other.
