Return to That Love Again

Every morning we rise to a changing of times
When yesterday felt like ten thousand worlds away
With conflicts and sufferings, injustice and crimes,
Nothing makes sense in a world that’s gone astray
Are there words we can say to a world that can’t hear,
When mercy and love have been tossed to the wind?
Dear fellas and ladies, as you lend me your ears,
Shall we return to that love again?

Return to that love again     Forgive and be kind, we can
Return to that love again
Return to that love again     Embrace every fellow man
Return to that love again

Aren’t you weary and troubled by every day’s news,
Where the good and the kind make no headlines for sure?
Be it races, religions, political views,
No matter the difference, we needn’t close the door
If you believe in God, you’ll be judged by your faith,
Yet faith without deeds will lay bare at His face
If you trust in yourself, you ain’t no perfect saint
So either way we need lots of grace

Return to that love again     Forgive and be kind, we can
Return to that love again
Return to that love again     Embrace every fellow man
Return to that love again

Every minute and second we waste away
Is costing our future unless we change today
The world is broken but love will make a way
If there’s no tomorrow, all we have is today

Return to that love again     Forgive and be kind, we can
Return to that love again
Return to that love again     Embrace every fellow man
Return to that love again

All our fathers were brothers a long time ago
Our mothers were sisters before we filled this place
We are closer to each other – you’ll never know!
Regardless of colours, we’re from the same old race
It’s the season to love and love needs no excuse
All races embrace and tear down all the walls
Caring for just who you like or those you can use:
What you call love is not love at all

Return to that love again     Forgive and be kind, we can
Return to that love again
Return to that love again     Embrace every fellow man
Return to that love again
