Lyrics

There are children raised in sorrow On a scorched and barren plain There are children raised Beneath a golden sun There are children of the water Children of the sand And they cry out through the universe Their voices raised as one (CHORUS) I wanna live, I wanna grow I wanna see, I wanna know I wanna share what I can give I wanna be, I wanna live Have you gazed out on the ocean Seen the breaching of a whale Have you watched the dolphins Frolic in the foam Have you heard the song The humpback hears Five hundred miles away Telling tales of ancient history Of passages and home

(CHORUS) For the worker and the warrior The lover and the liar, for the Native and the wanderer in kind For the maker and the user The mother and her son I am looking for my family And all of you are mine We are standing all together Face to face, arm in arm We are standing on the Threshold of a dream No more hunger, no more killing No more wasting life away It is simply an idea and I know It's time has come I wanna live, I wanna grow I wanna see, I wanna know I wanna share what I can give I wanna be I wanna live, I wanna grow I wanna see and I wanna know I wanna share what I can give I wanna be, I wanna live I wanna live and I wanna grow I wanna see, I wanna know I wanna share what I can give I wanna be, I wanna live I wanna live, I want to live
