we all are one

I take a long trip to India
it was Just a regular vacation
and It was time of dewali
the festival of lights celebration

So I help set up the deyas
Throw the oil and make it light
And they all said to me
Brother you are a Hindu tonight

Then I went to Iraq
To visit my best friends
They both were well dress
In the best Islamic trends

it was the end of Ramadan?
so they prepared a feast after we pray
Then they all said to me
Brother you are a Muslim today

with many I stand at the wall
In the holy city of Jerusalem
here should be a place of peace
But it got so many problems

It’s the eight nights of Hanukah
So I help light the candles too
And they all said to me
Brother tonight you are a Jew

Back in New York now
enjoying Christmas time
By my Christian friends home
Having fruit cake and wine

I carry gifts for the children
Helping with the decoration
And they all said to me
brother today you are a Christian

And as I drove home
I think of the people I met
And the memories they give
and what I learn I will never forget

Why can’t we find peace?
I come to one conclusion
Its the Governments who wants
The world to live in confusion

If we respect each other
Then the world will live as one
And from the kindness of our hearts
The hope of peace will be born

So let’s start with our self
And spread it down the line
I think we can do it
Changing one heart at a time
