If you really want the world to change,
You got to rearrange, your mind start looking deeper.
You have a little Jesus fish, a braclet on your wrist,
Or a clever bumper sticker.

Something missing, they're not listening.
We're not getting through.

[Chorus:]
We got to start to give, and to forgive.
Open up your home.
We got to love again, become a friend,
To the ones alone.
What are you waiting for? There's so much more
Than throwing words around. It's true,
If you really want the world to change,
It starts with you.

It's easy just to make a sign, or to get in line.
To voice your own opinion, about the way your supposed to be,
But the irony, is that it offers no sullotion.

Something missing, if your mission,
Has no follow through.

[Chorus:]
You got to start to give, and to forgive.
Open up your home.
You got to love again, become a friend,
To the ones alone.
What are you waiting for? There's so much more
Than throwing words around. It's true,
If you really want the world to change,
It starts with you.

I cannot change the way you live.
All I can do is change myself.

You got to start to give, and to forgive.
Open up your home.
You got to love again, become a friend,
To the ones alone.
What are you waiting for? There's so much more
Than throwing words around. It's true,
If you really want the world to change,

You got to start to give, and to forgive.
Open up your home.
You got to love again, become a friend,
To the ones alone.
What are you waiting for? There's so much more
Than throwing words around. It's true,
If you really want the world to change,
It starts with you.

It starts with me.
And it starts with you.
