This Week's Song: A Piece of Peace

Back in 1989, I described how I felt about the concept of peace and the song is dedicated to John Lennon. I also think we should Give Peace a Chance - but not at any price.

I've had to compress the file quite a bit so the quality is not great and for this I apologise in advance.

A Piece Of Peace

I do believe in Peace,
Peace.
Just a bit of it.
Like Gandhi,
Like King,
Like Lennon.
But I ain't gonna cry for it.
I ain't gonna die for it.
I'm just gonna pray for it.
Pray for it.

I'm not alone,
When I search for the key
To the armoury,
Yes the armoury.
I'm trying to save us all,
To rescue our fate
From the killers of the globe,
The blood on their guns is not paint.

Chorus:

Look at the people.
They are searching for an answer,
Oh an answer,
For the people of today.
Asking "What is peace?"

I wanna know,
Yes I wanna see
The signatures
On the pact of peace.
"Drop all arms,
Make Peace forever.
Drop all guns,
Make peace forever
Forever."

Chorus X2

I do believe in Peace,
Peace. Just a bit of it.
Like Gandhi,
Like King,
Like Lennon.
But I ain't gonna cry for it.
I ain't gonna die for it.
I'm just gonna pray for it.
Pray for it.

A piece of peace.
