Lyrics

Come Together
James Hammel

I’ve got to love the life I have
Be thankful we’re all here
It’s a biological miracle
That we can all stand up and cheer
But there are people in this world I know
Who need a helping hand
They face the hardest times in life
And they’re all across this land

There are children who need knowledge
From a higher school of learning
Their parents cannot teach them now
They need jobs with a little earnings
When I stop and pause to be thankful for
All my life’s been worth
I know it’s time to take a stand
For a better planet earth
Now we need to

Come together
To make the world a better place for living
With a lot of love and thought from everyone
We can change the world, we can get it done, together
When will we Come together?

If I can wake-up every morning
Be thankful for each new day
Salute the town I’m living in
And find a little time to play
But as I look around our world
As the wildlife disappears
Our actions don’t speak loud enough
While the people are brought to tears

There are places on this earth
Where the people are left to starve
Yet with all the food that we can grow
Feeding these people can’t be so hard
When I stop and pause to be thankful for
all my life’s been worth
I know it’s time to take a stand
For a better planet earth
So now we need to

Come together
To make the world a better place for living.
With a lot of love and thought from everyone
We can change the world, we can get it done
When will we Come together?

Some people in this world
Just take from everyone
And In the wake of their recklessness
There is nothing left for anyone
They need power, money, and influence
To help their friends who in the end
Have lost their grip on common sense
These are men no one believes in but

I know that were grounded
To the fertile earth beneath me
And the trees, the rain, the oceans
The way the clouds move on the breeze
After a cold winter night
I thank the sun that warms me
We’re part of the stars above
and the heavens far beyond

If we stand together
We can open any door
We can silence the politicians
We can stop the crazy wars
When I stop and pause to be thankful for
all my life’s been worth
I know it’s time to take a stand
For a better planet earth
So now we need to

Come together
To make the world a better place for living.
With a lot of love and thought from everyone
We can change the world, we can get it done
When will we Come together?

When will we awaken?
Can we change our ways?
Help us seek the the truth
