Pictures of hurt, words of hate and despair
Dreams that are gone with the wind
People who leave all the good times behind
With us that don’t know where we’ve been

Sometimes at night, there’s a song in my mind
Tellin’ of freedom and love
Though you might say it won’t change anything
I think it has power enough

It’s for peace in our time, givin’ hope to mankind
It’s for you that I’m singin’ this song
It’s for children who cry with their hearts askin’ why
Why do people treat people so wrong?

It’s for peace in our time, givin’ hope to mankind
It’s for you that I’m singin’ this song
It’s for children who cry with their hearts askin’ why
Why do people treat people so wrong?
Why do people treat people so wrong?

Please wipe that shadow of fear from your face
Open your soul to the light
And someday soon we will live in a place
Where people won’t argue and fight

It’s for peace in our time, givin’ hope to mankind
It’s for you that I’m singin’ this song
It’s for children who cry with their hearts askin’ why
Why do people treat people so wrong?

‘Cause it can’t be the truth that our world has to die
I believe in the power of people

It’s for children who cry with their hearts askin’ why
Why do people treat people so wrong?
It’s for peace in our time, givin’ hope to mankind
It’s for you that I’m singin’ this song
Oh… sing along
