  • One, two, three, four

    Why are we looking down
    On our sisters and brothers?
    Isn't love, all that we got?
    Don't we know everyone's
    Got a father and mother?
    The day we know we're all the same
    Together we can make that change

    Look around there are too many of us crying
    And not enough love to go around
    What a waste, another day
    Another good one dying
    But I know that the world will change
    The day we know we're all the same

    Why can't we just get along?
    If loving one another's wrong
    Then how are we supposed to
    Get close to each other?
    We gotta make that change, yeah
    Why can't we just get along?

    What a waste it would be to deny somebody
    Of a chance to be theirselves
    What a waste it would be if we hurt for nothing?
    But I know that the world can change
    The day we know we're all the same

    (Why can't we just get along?)
    Why can't we just get along?
    (Why can't we just get along?)
    If loving one another's wrong
    (Why can't we just get along?)
    Then how are we supposed to
    Get close to each other?
    We gotta make that change, yeah

    I know we could break apart
    We don't have to go that way
    Not today

    Why can't we just get along?
    If loving one another's wrong
    Then how are we supposed to
    Get close to yeah
    (Why can't we just get along?)
    Why can't we just get along?
    (Why can't we just get along?)
    If loving one another's wrong
    (Why can't we just get along?)
    Then how are we supposed to
    Get close to each other?
    We gotta make that change, yeah

    The change, yeah Writer/s: Charlie Puth, James Taylor, Johan Jens Erik Carlsson, Ross Jacob Golan
