Grace: "Imagine One Day"

Too many people got nothin’ to eat
While the rich man a feast on his kill
Too many people got blood on their hands
Thinkin’ there’s nothin’ else they can do
And you go ’bout your day thinkin’ it’s okay
Won’t hurt you now if you just look away

Imagine one day it’s you, what would you do?
Imagine one day it’s you

You give your all
Yeah, you give your hand
Your compassion it flows from the source
You build your world here on equality
And together you find what your worth
Come on!
Stand up for freedom, the people will lead
Stand up for justice, oh let it be me

Imagine one day it’s you, what would you do?
Imagine one day it’s you, it’s your turn now
Imagine one day it’s you, what you gonna do?
Imagine one day it’s you

You think you’re different
Nothin’ could happen to you
But tables always turn
So you’ll need a helpin’ hand
To build on rock rather than a foundation of sand

Imagine one day it’s you, what would you do?
Imagine one day it’s you, it’s your turn now
Imagine one day it’s you, what you gonna do?
Imagine one day it’s you

How many lives will it take to realize
That we’re killin’ ourselves all the while
How many people must die here in vain
In the name of the price that we pay
Come on!
Stand up for freedom, the people will lead
Stand up for justice, oh let it be me
