Can you imagine
The world at peace
What would it be like
Can you imagine
Such harmony
And what will happen
When everybody's happy
But me
Can you imagine
This headache I have
Writing this song
Can you imagine
The storm inside
And the quiet
When everybody's happy
But me
I think that I would really
Like to love
Give and receive
I pray that my spirit
May rise above
And I'll live a good life
When everybody's happy
But me

Gordon Gano: vocal, guitar, violin
