"You Can Change The World"

"You Can Change The World"

A Poem by Jelvin
"

Song I wrote on 9/11, though not about it. About standing up for the world. Inspired by a purim song of the same name. Chorus from that song.

"
[verse 1]
If you feel the world's taken it's last breath. 
And every move Is the memories of a painful death
We must build the strength to move on
And restore the peace that has long gone

If we try we could end this
And all the pain inside would mend
We've been through troubles far and wide. 
And we need a hand to lend. 


See…
[chorus]
You can change the world. 
You can make the world complete
Take the pride
You feel inside And never Accept defeat

[verse 2]
all this battle, another war
And honestly, what's it for?
I'm sick of seeing all this strife
Do really need to lose another life?

We've worked so hard to get where we are
Should we really lose it all?
Or just stop the evil and end it now
Before the world will fall. 


But…
[chorus]
You can change the world. 
You can make the world complete
Take the pride
You feel inside And never Accept defeat

[verse 3]
people say the goal won't work 
And my beliefs make me a jerk
But if we get some people, 1 by 1
I'm sure that we can get it done

I have to say I'm quite upset
Of what the world is today
People oppressed, homeless, hungry
And they're dyin' every day


I know that…
[chorus]
You can change the world. 
You can make the world complete
Take the pride
You feel inside And never Accept defeat

[verse 4]
3000 people in 9/11/01
Hitler's holocaust; thought he'd won
Dictated people, is there freedom?
With Anonymous saviours, but can you meet 'em?
This ain't what the world needs
But I'm askin' you to hear my pleads!

For us to take it back
And stop the hatred; don't attack
For good…

If we
[chorus]
Change the world. 
If we make the world complete
Take the pride
We feel inside And never Accept defeat

Cause…
We can change the world. 
We can make the world complete
Take the pride
We feel inside And never
Don't ever
We'll never Accept defeat!
