Lyrics

Be The Change
©Words and music by Chris Chickering (Chris Chickering Music,

Be the change you wish to see
In this world
'Cause one and one will make eleven
We can make a heaven, yea

Be the spark that starts the flame
Light the way
All it takes is you and me
To be the change you wish to see
Oh, oh...woah
Oh, oh...woah

Feels impossible sometimes
The world seems so cold
and there are so many dividing lines

Breaks the heart
and wounds the soul
Sometimes we lose the faith
Gotta keep on
tryin' to find a better way

Don't you give up
No matter the pain
Oh, don't you give up
Keep pushin' right through the rain

Be the change you wish to see
In this world
'Cause one and one will make eleven
We can make a heaven, yea

Be the spark that starts the flame
Light the way
All it takes is you and me
to be the change you wish to see
Oh, oh...woah
Oh, oh...woah

People say peace can't be found
Just sit back and let the world go 'round
But that's no way to make ourselves a better future
If everybody did just a little bit more
We'd be better off for sure
On our way to blue-sky days and hallelujahs

Don't you give up
Keep stoking the faith
No, don't you give up
'Cause we're makin' a brand new day

Be the change you wish to see
In this world
'Cause one and one will make eleven
We can make a heaven, yea

Be the spark that starts the flame
Light the way
All it takes is you and me
To be the change you wish to see
Oh, oh...woah
Oh, oh...woah

I know it seems like somethin'
Impossible to do
But all it takes now is to
lean into the groove

Be the change you wish to see
In this world
'Cause one and one will make eleven
We can make a heaven, yea

Be the spark that starts the flame
Light the way
All it takes is you and me
To be the change, yea baby

Be the change you wish to see
In this world
'Cause one and one will make eleven
We can make a heaven, yea

Be the spark that starts the flame
Light the way
All it takes is you and me
To be the change you wish to see
Oh, oh...woah
Oh, oh...woah
