Lyrics

This Simple Place

Let me take you to a place where love like water flows
Where colors of the human race are measured by the soul
Where no one holds the key that makes you stay or lets you go
I’m dreaming of this simple place where winds of change may blow

Let me take you by the hand where children feel no pain
Where faces of the dying deserts taste the drops of rain
It’s only when you seize the moment that you’ll make the change
And only if you hold your brother may you feel his pain
I’m dreaming of this simple place where life’s not so insane.

So listen to the truth that’s lying
Listen to your heart
‘Cause you can hear the angels crying
out beyond the stars…
And you don’t have to look that far
it’s in your own backyard

Oh, let me take you to a place where heroes lay their heads
Those children that those proud young mothers once tucked into bed
They surely paid the price that freedom placed upon our heads
Familiar names upon the wall with offerings for the dead
I’m dreaming of this simple place where fields aren’t quite so red…

So red…
So red…
So red.
