Songs That Inspire Me – Lyrics

The World Could & Should Be A Better Place…

Whitney HoustonWhitney Houston’s “Greatest Love”

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be.

Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me.

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows.

If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me.

The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be.

And if by chance, that special place
That you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love.

John LennonΒ John Lennon’s “Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

Michael JacksonΒ Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song”

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shared before
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth, the weeping shores?

What have we done to the world
Look what we’ve done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth, the weeping shores

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don’t know where we are
Although I know we’ve drifted far

Hey, what about yesterday
What about the seas
The heavens are falling down
I can’t even breathe
What about everything
What about nature’s worth
It’s our planet’s womb

What about animals
We’ve turned kingdoms to dust
What about elephants
Have we lost their trust
What about crying whales
What about forest trails
Burnt despite our pleas

What about the holy land
Torn apart by creed
What about the common man
Can’t we set him free
What about children dying
Where did we go wrong
Someone tell me why

What about baby boy
What about the days
What about all their joy
What about the men
What about the crying man
What about Abraham
What about death again
Do we give a damn
