Gotta Do Something
© J.C. Ashbaker 2007
The planet's on fire again
The children are crying and it looks like the end
But we wish, yeah, we wish for the rain
Wash away their sorrows, ease all their pain
Oh, we wish, yeah, we wish for the rain

The natives are running amok
Seems that humanity may have run out of luck
So we wish, yeah, we wish for some air
Something to breathe, free of despair
Oh, we wish, yeah, we wish for clean air

We can wish, we can hope, we can dream till the day that we die
But, that won't stop or end their tears or their cries
We've gotta do something
We've gotta do something

Don't we know that the answer is love
Release the hatred, stop holding the grudge
So we wish, yeah, we wish for some love
Like a knight in shinning armor, it's sent from above
Oh, we wish, yeah we wish for sweet love

The time now has come to decide
Will you stand and be counted, will you lie down and hide
Will you show us, yeah show us some heart
Strength and compassion might be a good start
Oh please show us, yeah show us, some heart

We can wish, we can hope, we dream, we can long for the day
Somebody else comes to take our troubles away
But we gotta do something
We gotta do something
