Flower In The Gun - Lyrics

We could be the healin'
When you're feeling all alone
We could be the reason
To find the strength to carry on
In a world that's so divided
We shall overcome
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun

What would I say to my son or to my daughter
If they came and asked me bout these days
What kinda reason could I give for all the hate that's standing in the way
Wish I could tell em that nobody's gonna judge them
And every stranger on the block is gonna love them
No bully in the world will ever hurt em
But I can't say that today
Woah-oh
No one could ever take your pride from you
Speak your truth and let your spirit fly

Cause we could be the healin'
When you're feeling all alone
We could be the reason
To find the strength to carry on
In a world that's so divided
We shall overcome
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun

What could I say to every woman who was ever told
By a man donl try to reach too high
What could I say to every girl who was betrayed
And told to keep the pain locked inside
Wish I could say nobody's ever judge me
Every stranger on the block is gonna love me
No bully in the world is gonna hurt me
But I can't say that today
Woah-oh
No one could ever take my pride from me
I'll speak my truth and let my spirit fly

Cause we could be the healin'
When you're feeling all alone
We could be the reason
To find the strength to carry on
In a world that's so divided
We shall overcome
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun

Ifs like somebody dropping a pebble into a pond
And sending ripples out to the world

Woah
Woah
Yeah
Yeah
Woah (Everybody say)
Woah
Yeah
Yeah

Woah
Woah (We could be the healing)
Yeah
Yeah
Woah (Everybody say)
Woah
Yeah

Cause We could be the healin'
When you're feeling all alone
We could be the reason
To find the strength to carry on
In a world that's so divided
We shall overcome
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun (Flower in the gun)
We could be the healing
We can be the flower in the gun

We can be the flower in the gun
