There's a crack in the ground from Waterloo,
All the way to Arizona
I can see form the fire escape outside
That helped me get to know you

What was it like,
When I was in your life?
Did my touch feel the same?
As your touch it felt so good to me,
It felt so good to me

[Chorus]
One world, One love,
Means nothing if you're just pretending
One World, One Love,
There's nothing to good intentions
Dark as the black in the cracks in the ground.

There's a crack in the ground from Tennessee
All the way to Caledonia
I can tell by the way the silence rings
And echoes in the corners.

How many times you wanted to cry
But you kept it inside
Now the silence echoes deafening,
Its much too loud for me.

[Chorus]

There's a crack in the ground from old New York,
All the way to Minnesota
I can see the way ten thousand lakes
Are screaming for more water

Give us some hope
We haven't got enough
To keep ourselves filled up
When you drink us empty, drunk us dry,
Then ask us why we're dry

One world, One love,
Means nothing if you're just pretending
One World, One Love,
There's nothing to good intentions
One world, One love,
Means nothing if you're just pretending
To do your part,
There's nothing to good intentions.

Dark as the black, in the cracks in the ground
Dark as the black, in the cracks in the,
Dark as the black, in the cracks in the ground.
