Song Description

Song of unity and getting past the illusion that we are all separate. A reminder that we are all one, that when you take down another you take down yourself, when you hate another, you hate yourself, it's a song of healing and a call for the world to awaken.

Story Behind the Song

I was inspired to write a song about Peace so I put down a rough idea in audio form and there it sat on my desktop for months. Every time I'd turn on my computer it would be highlighted on my desktop and it became obvious I was being nudged to get busy with it so I booked the studio to finally record it and then kept having obstacles, one after the next preventing me from doing it. Finally a year later, along with getting into a very bad car accident, God and all the universe opened the way for it to happen! I had an urgency to do this and with great determination it finally happened. I now realize it was all about timing, it had to be right. Amazing how God works!

Lyrics

You and I are different and
I don't look the way you do
our skin is not the same
we have foreign names
I pray from a different book
than you do.

But I believe that underneath this
false facade we're seeds of God...

LAY DOWN, YOUR GUNS, LAY DOWN YOUR GUNS
BRING PEACE, BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD BRING PEACE, PEACE TO THE WORLD.

If I could I'd strip away this
mask I wear so you could see
I'm not your enemy I love just as
deep but though you sleep you'll reap just what you sow and, when I hurt I bleed the same I bear those scars upon my heart

LAY DOWN, YOUR GUNS, LAY DOWN YOUR GUNS, BRING PEACE, BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD, BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD, YOU KNOW IT'S TIME...

The way to peace is LOVE, you know it's all we need, all we need, plant the seed and let it be, humanity.

LAY DOWN, LAY DOWN, LAY DOWN YOUR GUNS, LAY DOWN, LAY DOWN LAY DOWN YOUR GUNS BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD,BRING PEACE, BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD,BRING PEACE, BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD,BRING LOVE, BRING LIGHT,BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD...

The way to peace is LOVE, you know it's all we need.
