  • Peace

    Ladies and gentlemen
    Standing before you with something important to say
    With some trepidation, I crave your attention but
    I'm not gonna let anything get my way
    The message is simple, it's straight from my heart
    And I know that you've heard it before
    But what does it matter, we're in it together
    And I'm not quitting while people are crying for more

    People want peace
    People want peace
    A simple release from their suffering
    People want peace
    People want peace

    Nothing in life is as sad as the lonely, so
    Searching for peers
    Wanting to find
    disappointment is waiting behind every door that we open
    We catch, we release

    Our brothers and sisters, I beg you to listen
    I know that it isn't too late
    For we as the people, the voices of freedom
    We're all home to be clipped, but we don't wanna wait

    People want peace
    People want peace
    A simple release from their suffering
    People want peace
    A-people want peace

    People want peace
    People want peace
    Yes, we want peace
    People want peace
    People want peace Writer/s: Paul James McCartney
