There are children raised in sorrow
       Bm                   D     
On a scorched and barren plain
           G                Em            D – A7     
There are children raised beneath a golden sun
There are children of the water  
 Bm              D       
Children of the sand
          G                   Em        	    C		   A		
And they cry out through the universe Their Voices raised as one

A         D               Dmaj7     
I want to live i want to grow
          G              Gadd9    
I want to see i want to know
            A                G   
I want to share what i can give 
          A              D     
I want to be i want to live

Have you gazed out on the ocean
           Bm               D       
Seen the breaching of a whale?
           G                  Em           D – A7 
Have you watched the dolphins frolic in the foam?
Have you heard the song the humpback hears 
    Bm		   D
five hundred miles away
         G                Em         C            A           
Telling tales of ancient history of passages and home?    (chorus)

	          Em                        Bm                  
(Bridge) For the worker and the warrior the lover and the liar
	          C             Em          D         
	For the native and the wanderer in kind
         Em                          Bm                     
	For the maker and the user and the mother and her son 
        C           Em         C              A7         
	I am looking for my family and all of you are mine

We are standing all together
        Bm               D         
Face to face and arm in arm
        G               Em            D – A7  
We are standing on the threshold of a dream
No more hunger no more killing 
           Bm         D          
No more wasting life away
        G        Em          C		    A	
It is simply an idea and I know it’s time has come   (Chorus  Repeat last line 2X)
