By michael mcdonald and bernie chiaravalle

Day by day
One by one
They plant the seeds of doubt
But far too many have come this far
For me to turn back now

I wanna build upon itЎ­

One by one
We must believe a change will come somehow
Ў®cause far too many lay down their lives
For me to give up now

I wanna build upon itЎ­

One world we leave behind
One truth that lights the way
This dream depends upon how we live today

I wanna build upon it...
