I woke up this morning I could see,
I could walk,I could talk,
I could smile,I could smell,
I could taste,I could laugh,
I had food to eat,I had water to drink,
the best thing of all,
there is 'peace'
Peace in the house, peace outside,
so still is the air, not a sound near or far,
the air is fresh, no smog or smoke,
no people about, not a soul in site,
it's great where I live,
not like some places I hear about
where they don't have 'peace'
I look at the houses, and i recall
the different races of people,
religions and creeds,
in nearly every house lives a person from afar
all living in harmony
respecting each other and conforming to my land
a street of many nations
where there is 'peace'
I wonder how many people don't have what I have today,
the world has changed, some live in fear,
and I won't be fearful, I walk free,
without any fear i love, i don't hate,
I smile because I have a lot to smile about
I really wish that the world was like my street,
there would be 'peace'
