For you (Lyircs by David Diers)

What if they taught us how to live
instead of adding twelve and twelve
What if they taught us how to give?
instead of keeping it to ourselves?

What if they showed us how to love
and to truly understand,
all the races and the creeds
of all the women and the men

You don’t have to be Jesus
I just want you to give a damn
for me, for you, for us
for me, for you, for us

What if they taught us how to accept
every single thing we do
and how that might alter our sight
and our perception of the truth

What if they taught us all to heal
instead of reading Dick and Jane
and how much better we would feel
when no reader can stop the pain.

It’s so easy to start again
to start over
all you need to do is say you will
and love one another

What if they showed us how to break
the walls we build inside
and with that energy we’d raise
the quality of our lives

What if we gave out only love
with no room for something else
and stop looking up above
and see God within ourselves.
