Where is the love?
Open your heart.
Where is the love?
Open your heart.
Where is the love?
Please believe, capacity lives within us to imagine something different
Where everyone, has what they need, and is cared for, love’s the answer, hold the question
Can you imagine turning the dreams, of our brethren into our own. Imagine…
Let’s open our minds to
A place with no time
Open our minds
To love that we’ll find
Treated in kind
Where is the regard for all of humanity? It’s hiding in the trenches
With all of, the progress we’ve navigated, how have we not seen the most basic
Truth that we’re all connected and no one is free until all of us, are free   
Where is the love?
Open our hearts.
Where is the love?
Open our hearts.
