From the recording No One Else Needs to Die

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.
