Peace

Ladies and gentlemen
Standing before you with something important to say
With some trepidation, I crave your attention but
I'm not gonna let anything get my way
The message is simple, it's straight from my heart
And I know that you've heard it before
But what does it matter, we're in it together
And I'm not quitting while people are crying for more

People want peace
People want peace
A simple release from their suffering
People want peace
People want peace

Nothing in life is as sad as the lonely, so
Searching for peers
Wanting to find
disappointment is waiting behind every door that we open
We catch, we release

Our brothers and sisters, I beg you to listen
I know that it isn't too late
For we as the people, the voices of freedom
We're all home to be clipped, but we don't wanna wait

People want peace
People want peace
A simple release from their suffering
People want peace
A-people want peace

People want peace
People want peace
Yes, we want peace
People want peace
People want peace
