All We Need

All We Need

Why should we suffer
When all we need is here
Why should we hide undercover
When all we need is here
Why should we cry, or turn our backs behind
When all we want it here
Why should we ask all these questions
When the answers all lie here

Will we ever get tired
Of fighting in this fire
Will we ever end the pain
Of losing everything

When will we see the children’s smiles
And not their awful frowns
When will we live as one together
Instead of always putting each other down

Why should we suffer
When all we need is here
Why should we hide undercover
When all we need is here
Why should we cry, or turn our backs behind
When all we want it here
Why should we ask all these questions
When the answers all lie here

When will we fight for peace
And not with the enemy
When will we be inspired
To bring what is so admired

When will we wipe a nation’s tears
And finally make a change
When will we reach out a helping hand
Instead of going back and forth with these games

Why should we suffer
When all we need is here
Why should we hide undercover
When all we need is here
Why should we cry, or turn our backs behind
When all we want it here
Why should we ask all these questions
When the answers all lie here

I know, I believe
There can be freedom
There can be peace
This all can be achieved
Once we realized
That we can never win
If there’s no peace in mind
So,

Why should we suffer
When all we need is here
Why should we hide undercover
When all we need is here
Why should we cry, or turn our backs behind
When all we want it here
Why should we ask all these questions
When the answers all lie here
