Let The World Breathe

Let The World Breathe
Shirley Jackson@Socan June 3, 2020

There is a change, there's a time coming
Where the whole world can clearly see
The road that's been less traveled
Is the path to Unity.

We can no longer hide the darkness
In all those shades of grey.
When we stand or kneel together
As one and proudly say...

Let them breathe....
Let them breathe....


The world is on a fast track
A chance to make things right.
When we cross that bridge together
From the darkness to the light.

When we look in the mirror
And there's no one else to blame.
Be proud of what we stand for.
Our hearts all beat the same.

Let them breathe....
Let them breathe

(Instumental interlude)

Let them breathe....
Let them breathe....
Let the whole world breathe...
Let them breathe....
