lyrics

What if we walked a mile in their shoes
Assumed a little less
Tried to feel what they feel
What if we opened our hearts a little more
And asked ourselves, what if, what if this was me?

Cause they are just like you and me
Trying to find a way to be in this world
And live in peace
Cause they are just like you and me
Trying to find a way to be in this world
And live in peace
Is that a crime?

What if the story changed today
It's you on the other side, what would you do
How far would you go for the ones you love
To give them the best, the best you can

Cause they are just like you and me
Trying to find a way to be in this world
And live in peace
Cause they are just like you and me
Trying to find a way to be in this world
And live in peace
Is that a crime?

It's time to believe that there's enough
To go around for everyone that lives
The table is large for all of us
To sit and feast, in this beautiful place

Cause we are all in the same place
Trying to find a way to be in this world
And live in peace
Cause we are all in the same place
Trying to find a way to be in this world
And live in peace
And it's not a crime

What if we walked a mile in their shoes
Assumed a little less
Tried to feel what they feel
