Verse 1:
Everybody’s broken in life sometimes
Never really knowin the whens or whys
Leave them in the shadows and they will die
Collect the pieces as their souls cry

Times changing, worlds rearranging
It’s not too late because

Chorus:

We can save the world
We can save the world

Stand up, speak out for your brotherman
Get up, hands out help another man
We can save the world

Verse 2:
How much war can we endure
We can’t turn our backs against the poor
Time to spread love from shore to shore

We can celebrate together
Let’s enjoy the world forever
Align our powers for better

Don’t you know that

Chorus:

We can save the world
We can save the world

Stand up, speak out for your brotherman
Get up, hands out help another man
We can save the world

Verse 3:
Imagine an everlasting peace
Not a child without a meal to eat
Not a restless soul among the free




Jamaican, American, African
If you can can say you can cause I know we can.

Chorus
We can save the world
We can save the world

Stand up, speak out for your brotherman
Get up, hands out help another man
We can save the world

[Repeat out to fade] We can save the world

Save the World

No one to call on
No one to save me
When I'm broken
When I'n broken

Can't let you in my world
I'm not an ordinary girl
Cause I'm broken
Cause I'm broken

These wounds won't heal
The fix ain't real
I'm just broken
I'm just broken

Trying to find the light in the darkness
Fighting to survive
I can't see sparks of light
In the darkest of nights

Grab on
to the pieces
left of my soul
Cause it's all I control

Looking for salvation
In all the wrong places
Staring at empty faces
Echos the void inside
Can't run, I can't hide

Lost myself
Can't find me
Where in the hell could I be
Lost in the search
Cause I'm hiding

Trapped in the void of my own making
Have to be my own savior
Why

No one to call on
No one to save me
When I'm broken
When I'n broken

Gathered up all of the pieces
All of burdens releasing
I'm moving toward tonight
I will break through light
I'm still broken
I'm still broken

Finally I can see it
Gotta move forward
no conceding
Though I'm broken
Though I'm broken

Faces filling with color
I can feel warmth from others
I
realize

No one to call on
No one to save me
We're all broken
We're all broken

About Me

Bio

I discovered I had both a talent and a love for songwriting while writing songs for my daughter who is an artist. I knew that I wanted to write songs when I continued to write even when she wasn't around. I looked up and had written 5 songs in one day. I was hooked.
