What Peace Looks Like

Music by Peter Link
Lyrics by Peter Link & Julia Wade

“I want to know what peace looks like”
The girl of Uganda said,
“I want to know what peace looks like”
She’s spent her life in fractured war
But now she’s stepping through a door
That takes her far from harm

“I want to know what peace looks like”
The boy of the Sudan said,
“I wanna feel what it feels like
I want to have enough to eat
I want to feel my mother’s heat
As she wraps me in her arms”

“I want to know what peace looks like
I want to know what peace looks like
My wish, my hope, my dream
A night without the nightmares
I want to know the inner calm
The thread of self-esteem
I want to know what peace looks like
And I want to feel it too
Yes I do”

Oh Lord, the lessons of the children of war
The roar of their misfortune;
The hopelessness that lies before
And still they live to love again

Oh Lord, the lessons of the children of war
The roar of their misfortune;
The hopelessness that lies before
And still they live to love again

Because that’s what children do
Yeah that’s what children do

And if they can do it
We can do it too
Yes if they can do it
We can do it too

“I wanna to know what peace looks like”
The child of the ghetto said,
“I wanna go where peace is known
I’ve had enough of hopelessness
A cracked out mom and fatherless
And the gangs that haunt the streets”

And oh Lord, the lessons of the children of war
The roar of their misfortune;
The hopelessness that lies before
And still they live to love again
Oh Lord, the lessons of the children of war
The roar of their misfortune;
The hopelessness that lies before
And still they live to love again

Because that’s what children do
Yeah that’s what children do

And if they can do it
We can do it too
Yes if they can do it
We can do it too!
