People Want Peace - Lyrics

Ladies and gentlemen
Standing before you with something important to say
With some trepidation I crave your attention but
I'm not gonna let anything get my way
The message is simple
It's straight from my heart
And I know that you've heard it before
But what does it matter, we're in it together
And I'm not quitting while people are crying for more

People want peace
People want peace
A simple release from their suffering
People want peace

People want peace

Nothing in life is as sad as the lonely, so
Searching for peace
Only to find disappointment is waiting
Behind every door that we open
Every catch, we release
Brothers and sisters, I beg you to listen,
I know that it isn't too late,
For we as the people, the voice of freedom
And we're open and clear, we don't wanna wait

People want peace
People want peace
A simple release from their suffering
People want peace

People want peace

People want peace
People want peace
Yes, we want peace!
People want peace
People want peace
