Imagine (and a Birthday)

This is the last in the series of my best loved Peace Songs.

It’s also my beautiful sister’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Lynn. Love you lots! ❤

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one

(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding

If There’s A God In Heaven (What’s He Waiting For?)

Torn from their families
Mothers go hungry
To feed their children
But children go hungry

There’s so many big men
They’re out making millions
When poverty’s profits
Just blame the children

If there’s a God in heaven
What’s he waiting for?
If he can’t hear the children
Then he must see the war

But it seems to me
That he leads his lambs
To the slaughter house
And not the promised land

Dying for causes
They don’t understand
We’ve been taking their futures
Right out of their hands

They need the handouts
To hold back the tears
There’s so many crying
But so few that hear

If there’s a God in heaven
What’s he waiting for?
If he can’t hear the children
Then he must see the war

But it seems to me
That he leads his lambs
To the slaughter house
And not the promised land

If there’s a God in heaven
What’s he waiting for?
If he can’t hear the children
Then he must see the war

But it seems to me
That he leads his lambs
To the slaughter house
And not the promised land

If there’s a God in heaven
Well, what’s he waiting for?
If there’s a God in heaven
What’s he waiting for?

Repeat
