We Can Build It

music and lyrics by Marc Moree, Jason Howell 1997


If we could shed our hearts together, and all have hope, my brother,
We can build it, this world
Just put your hand upon my shoulder, 'cause we're only getting older,
We can build it, one world
We can let our times go by, pretending that we can fly,
but it all comes down to a friend.
Just reach out for your neighbor, he's the one who'll save you,
and that's just another interstate bend.

We just keep on beating at each other and we'll never find a home, but the answer for our future is each other. So let's stop finding all these strange and desperate ways to be alone.

People, let's bring it on back home to each other
Let's tell our stories to the sky.
People, let's take it down to the ocean
and talk it over 'till we try
We Can Build It

If we could breathe one breath together, and all exhale, my brother,
We can build it, one world
Just put aside your petty playthings, inside we all are kings,
We can build it, this world
Have we forgot to speak aloud, unsure who to make proud,
Not thinking what we need the most
So, say it's time we all stood up, pass around the silver cup,
and give many thanks to our hosts

We just keep on beating at each other and we'll never find a home, but the answer for our future is each other. So let's stop finding all these strange and desperate ways to be alone.

People, let's bring it on back home to each other
Let's tell our stories to the sky.
People, let's take it down to the ocean
and talk it over 'till we try
We Can Build It
We Can...
