In this world we've got the choice to live together
Hand in hand we can weather the storm
But instead we go to war
And after wars are lost and won
After all is said and done
When push comes to shove
THE WORD IS LOVE

We can fight for our rights - wear our colors
Doesn't matter - we're just crying to be free
But the way we go about it
Is the opposite of how we're supposed to work it out
Let's take off the gloves
THE WORD IS LOVE

Love is the key to the Kingdom
Silently spoken through our eyes - through our minds
Let us leave the past behind
And speak with our hearts
And make a new start
There's no other answer 'cause love is the answer to life

City streets
The city beats to something frightening
It's a lightening that's cracked through the town
And it's striking people down
But we can turn this one around
By showing what we've found
From Heaven above
THE WORD IS LOVE
