This song is about peace. I am hoping to have really great music written to it, as always I do have my melody but will consider someone else melody if it is better than mine.

For those who would want to sing along or play my song with guitar or piano. lay out is:

8 beats per line.



WE ARE ONE

(1st verse)
People, oh
People, (You are beautiful people)
What would this world turn out to be
If it wasn't for you and me
-
(Chorus)
Beautiful people we are one
We are one under the sun
So we'll unite we'll live as one
Everybody say, WE ARE ONE
You are beautiful people (People!)
You are beautiful people (beautiful people!)
Standing in a crowd (You are beautiful!)
So stand up proud
-
(2nd verse)
People, oh people
Emotions feel
What ever our eyes can see
Is not a dream this world is real
-
(Chorus)
Beautiful people we are one
We are one under the sun
So we'll unite we'll live as one
Everybody say, WE ARE ONE
You are beautiful (People!)
You are beautiful (Beautiful people!)
Standing in a crowd (You are beautiful!)
So stand up proud
-
(Bridge)
for this world we're living in
We're in need of each other so much
We are all human beings
There times when you'll need someone to touch
-
what would this world turn out to be
If it wasn't for you and me
What ever our eyes can see
Is not a dream this world is real
-
(Chorus)
Beautiful, heart-warming song that captures and encourages the pure beauty and divinity of the human race. Thank you for sharing your gifts.

Suggested Corrections:
The last line of the last bridge says: "There times when you'll need someone to touch."

My proposed correction: Say either "There are times when you'll need someone to touch" or, "There will be times when you'll need someone to touch," or, "There's times when you need someone to touch."

The reason I propose that correction is just because it's just more proper English-language wise to say that.

Thanks for creating this beautiful music!
