The Turning Of The Tide
I was never one to raise my hand,
Take a stand, upset the plan.
But the child has grown into a man,
Now that times have changed.

I was content to go along,
Sing the safe, the careful song.
Trusting right would vanquish wrong,
Oh but times have changed.
I sing for peace now.
I made a vow to reach for higher ground.
I sing for peace now,
Peace is how we’ll turn the world around.

The news gets worse, so do the lies.
They hide the bodies from our eyes.
Thinking we won’t realize
We have the power to change.
I sing for peace now.
I made a vow to reach for higher ground.
I sing for peace now,
Peace is how we’ll turn the world around.

Children cry, mothers weep.
Been having trouble going to sleep
As brave young men lie buried deep,
Now that times have changed.
I sing for peace now.
I made a vow to reach for higher ground.
I sing for peace now,
Peace is how we’ll turn the world around.

Sing for peace. Sing for peace.
Turn the world around.
Work for peace… Pray… Vote… Sing…
Turn the world around.
