Song Lyrics:

I’m sorry

Nothing to stop this from being the best day ever
Nothing to keep us

I’m sorry

From where we should be

I don’t want to be an emperor
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone
I should like to help everyone if possible
We all want to help one another, human beings are like that

We want to live by each other’s happiness
Not by each other’s misery
We don’t want to hate and despise one another
And this world has room for everyone, and the good Earth is rich can provide for everyone

The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate
Has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed
We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in

[Love, love is all we have left…]

More than machinery, we need humanity
More that cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness
Without these qualities life will be violent, and all will be lost

[Love, love is all we have left…]
[Love, love is all we have left…]

Do not despair
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people

You, the people have the power — the power to create machines
The power to create happiness!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure
Then — in the name of democracy — let us use that power – let us all unite
Let us fight for a new world — a decent world that will give youth a future and old age a security

By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power
But they lie!
They do not fulfill that promise
They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people!
Now let us fight to fulfill that promise!
Let us fight to free the world – to do away with national barriers

!n the name of democracy, let us all unite!
