lyrics

I dreamt of bright flowers
Huge blinding flowers
They went from the earth to the sky
Infinite they went in all directions

Blossoming and growing
They kept on going
Nothing could stop them
Nothing could stop them

So what’s stopping us?
So what’s stopping us?

PEACE – give me a piece of peace
We all need peace PLEASE
Give me a piece
Give me a piece
Give me a piece of peace

We say we all want the same things
We say we all need the same things
Babies sleeping
Food for eating
House to live in
Education

so what’s stopping us?
so what’s stopping us?
So what’s stopping us?

PEACE – give me a piece of peace
We all need peace PLEASE
Give me a piece
Give me a piece
Give me a piece of peace

PEACE – give me a piece of peace
(give me a piece of peace)
We all need peace PLEASE
Give me a piece
Give me a piece
Give me a piece of peace

I dreamt of bright flowers
Huge blinding flowers
They went from the earth to the sky
Infinite they went in all directions

Blossoming and growing
They kept on going
Nothing could stop them
Nothing could stop them

So what’s stopping us?
(what's stopping us?)
So what’s stopping us?

PEACE – give me a piece of peace
We all need peace PLEASE
Give me a piece
Give me a piece
Give me a piece of peace

PEACE – give me a piece of peace
We all need peace PLEASE
Give me a piece
Give me a piece
Give me a piece of peace

We say we all want the same things
We say we all need the same things
Babies sleeping
Food for eating
House to live in
Education
So what’s stopping us?
So what’s stopping us
So what’s stopping us?
