I think that we will need to work together to create a new way of living on the Earth in harmony with nature and each other. It is one sky, one ocean, one future.
For This World (capo on 5th fret in C)
(No one looks a) stranger dressed in a smile
(though to learn their) ways takes a little while.
There’s a gospel in shaking hands
and building bridges across different lands.
C G C D
For this world we all love. For this world, Milky Way above.
C Em D G - C - G
For this world say a little prayer, for this world we all share.
As the seas begin to rise
And the ice packs slip away,
We must simplify our lives,
A lighter footprint every day.
The mean and proud tend to rule,
But our silence is their greatest tool.
We can speak with one voice.
Time is coming near to make a choice.
We all lift our eyes now and then,
speak to someone unseen once again.
When a bitter past lingers there
even a sigh becomes a prayer.
