Come Together

Words/music by James Hammel 

If we all come together we can really change this world (spoken by young girl)

Verse 1:
I’ve got to love the life I have, be thankful we’re all here
It’s a biological miracle that we can all stand up and cheer
But there are people in this world I know who need a helping hand
They face the hardest times in life and they’re all across this land

There are children who need knowledge from a higher school of learning
Their parents cannot teach them now. They need jobs with a little earnings
When I stop and pause to be thankful for all my life’s been worth
I know it’s time to take a stand for a better planet earth
So now we need to:

Chorus:
Come together to make the world a better place for living.
With a lot of love and thought from everyone we can change the world,
We can get it done, Together.
When will we Come together?

Verse 2:
If I can wake-up every morning, be hopeful for each new day
Salute the town I’m living in and find some time to play
But as I look around our world I see the wildlife disappears
Our actions don’t speak loud enough while the people are brought to tears

There are places on this earth where the people are left to starve
Yet with all the food that we can grow feeding these people can’t be so hard
When I stop and pause to be thankful for all my life’s been worth
I know it’s time to take a stand for a better planet earth
So now we need to:

Chorus:
Come Together to make the world a better place for living.
With a lot of love and thought from everyone we can change the world,
We can get it done, Together.
When will we Come Together?

Bridge
Some people in this world just take from everyone
And In the wake of their recklessness there is nothing left for anyone
They need power, money, and influence to help their friends who in the end
have lost their grip on common sense. These are men no one believes in but
I know that were grounded to the fertile earth beneath me
And the trees, the rain, the oceans the way the clouds move on the breeze
After a cold winter night I thank the sun that warms me
I’m part of the stars above and the heavens far beyond
If we stand together we can open any door
We can silence the politicians, we can stop the crazy wars
When I stop and pause to be thankful for all my life’s been worth
I know it’s time to take a stand for a better planet earth
So now we need to:

Chorus:
Come Together to make the world a better place for living.
With a lot of love and thought from everyone we can change the world,
We can get it done, Together.
When will we Come Together?

Altro/vamp:
When will we awaken?
Can we change our ways?
Help us seek the truth.
Help us find our way.
