TO WALK IN PEACE OUTSIDE OF THE DREAM
LET FALL THE ANGER WASH IN THE STREAM
OFFER FORGIVENESS FOR VENOM AND SCORN
WE CANNOT WANT REVENGE ONCE LOVE IS BORN

THE MISSION BEGINS RIGHT HERE IN MY HEART
THE MIRROR I HOLD REVEALS MY START
WOULD I WANT TO DIM SUCH BEAUTIFUL LIGHT
THERE’S ONLY DARKNESS IF I CHOOSE TO FIGHT

CHORUS
I AM THE CHANGE THAT THERE MUST BE
THE ROAD TO PEACE BEGINS WITH ME
IT STARTS WITH LOVE – IT STARTS WITH ME
I AM THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE

RAISE YOUR CHILDREN TO LOVE AND THEY WON’T RAISE A GUN
WITH PEACE IN YOUR HEART, YOU CANNOT SUCCUMB
TO CHAOS OR HATE OR CRUEL BITTERNESS
TO HOPE FOR MORE, YOU CANNOT OFFER LESS

CHORUS

AN EYE FOR AN EYE – THEN NO ONE CAN SEE
WHEN I’M LOVING YOU, THEN I’M LOVING ME
WE’LL GENTLY SHAKE THE WORLD UP WITH OUR LOVE
IT’S ALL THAT THE DREAM OF PEACE IS MADE OF

I AM THE CHANGE THAT THERE MUST BE
THE ROAD TO PEACE BEGINS WITH ME
IT STARTS WITH LOVE – IT STARTS WITH ME
I AM THE CHANGE – WE ARE THE CHANGE
WE ARE THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE
