SONG MASTERS

No One Else Needs to Die

Story

This song is about the need for humanity to live, side by side, in peace. For me, it's like a prayer... understanding that while we all have our own beliefs, we can still search out common ground where we can come together in peace.

Lyrics

V1

Please come and share my feast,             

But we’ll leave God at the door;                                        

While I honour your beliefs                   

I want to get to know you more.            

V2

Please come and share your dreams,

Your every thought and prayer.

We both value love and peace

As foundations, so let’s start there.

CH

I can see, just like me,                                            

You ache when your babies cry.                      

And if we were friends, then wars might end  

And no one else would need to die, no.                  

Tag

No one else needs to die.      

Bridge     

If love is all that matters why does hate breathe?      

If love is all that matters we all should believe.

When love is all that matters, peace can be found,

On common ground.

REPEAT V1

Please come and share my feast

We’ll leave God at the door;    

While I honour your beliefs

I need to know you more.

CH

I can see, just like me,                                             

You ache when your babies cry.                      

And if we were friends, then wars might end  

And no one else would need to die, no.                  

Tag

No one else needs to die.

Outro

Oooooo, no one else needs to die. Ooooooo.
