For Giving
Music and lyrics by Lara Martin

Lyrics:

I heard that there’s a storm that’s going on not far from here
I know that there are wars that still persist year after year
There is a fire burning all the chaos in my head
I’m sick and tired; I’ll either change the world or go back to bed

Chorus:
What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before?
Maybe if wisdom ran it, we would understand what our two hands are for.
They are for giving, Forgiving, For Giving

And as the water rises, we are drowning in the consequence we made
Disastrous world surprises, but are they really a surprise when what we’ve paved is
a Godless world No shame, but we’re happy placing blame
Look at ourselves
Be the change you wish to see

What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before
Maybe if wisdom ran it, we would understand what our two hands are for
What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before
Maybe if wisdom ran it we would understand what our two hands are for
They are for giving, Forgiving For Giving

Corruption destruction and lying, people are needlessly dieing, what is this madness all for? I know there’s no simple solution, let truth be a peace revolution that opens perceptual doors more and more.

Let’s pray that from the ashes will rise a different civilization, one built on consultation, communication.
Let’s say we get together to make the world a little bit better compassion in action will soar more and more.

What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before maybe if wisdom ran it we would understand what our two hands are for, they are For giving, Forgiving
For Giving….repeat
