  • In a time full of war, be peace
    In a time full of doubt, just believe
    Yeah, there ain't that much difference between you and me
    In a time full of war, be peace

    In a world full of hate, be a light
    When you do somebody wrong, make it right
    Don't hide in the dark, you were born to shine
    In a world full of hate, be a light
    (La-la-la, la, la, la, la)

    In a place that needs change, make a difference
    In a time full of noise, just listen
    'Cause life is but a breeze, better live it
    In a place that needs a change, make a difference

    In a world full of hate, be a light
    When you do somebody wrong, make it right
    Oh, don't hide in the dark, you were born to shine
    In a world full of hate, be a light
    La-la-la, la, la, la, la
    La-la-la, la, la, la, la
    La-la-la, la, la, la, la
    La-la-la, la, la, la, la

    In a race that you can't win, slow it down
    Yeah, you only get one go around
    'Cause the finish line is six feet in the ground
    In a race you can't win, just slow it down

    In a world full of hate, be a light (oh)
    When you do somebody wrong, make it right (make it right)
    Don't hide in the dark (don't hide in the dark), you were born to shine
    In a world full of hate, be a light

    Yeah, it's hard to live in color, when you just see black and white
    In a world full of hate, be a light Writer/s: Josh Thompson, Joshua Miller, Matthew Peters Dragstrem, Thomas Rhett Akins
