The Love Lyrics – Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson
Good eveningElla Baker, a giant of the civil rights movementLeft us with this wisdomGive people light, and they will find the wayGive people light (Hmm)Those are words for our timeJust a week ago yesterdayIt was the third anniversaryOf the events in Charlottesville (Yeah, yeah)Close your eyes, remember what you saw on the televisionRemember seeing those Neo-NazisRemember seeing those clansmen, rememberComing out a field with lighted torches, veins bulgingSpewing the same Anti-semitic bile heard across Europe in the thirties (Hate, hate, hate!)Remember the violent clash that ensuedBetween those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against itAnd remember what the President said when asked?He said there were quote, “very fine people on both sides”It was a wake-up call for us as a country (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)And for me a call to action (Uhm-hmm)People killing, people dyingChildren hurting, you hear them cryingCan you practice what you preach?And would you turn the other cheekFather, Father, Father help usSend some guidance from above‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’Where is the love?What’s wrong with the world, mama?People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamasI think the whole world’s addicted to the dramaOnly attracted to things that’ll bring you traumaOverseas yeah we trying to stop terrorismBut we still got terrorists here livin’In the USA, the KKKI can’t believe they’re still hating blacks todayBut if you only have love for your own raceThen you only leave space to discriminateAnd to discriminate only generates hateAnd when you hate, then you’re bound to get irate, yeahMadness is what you demonstrateAnd that’s exactly how hate works and operatesMan you gotta have love just to set it straightTake control of your mind and meditateLet your soul gravitate to the lovePeople killing, people dyingChildren hurting, you hear them cryingCan you practice what you preach?And would you turn the other cheekFather, Father, Father help usSend some guidance from above‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’Where is the love?[Post-Chorus: Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Hudson, apl.de.ap]The love (Lo-Love, oh-oh), the loveWhere is the love? The love, the loveThe love, the love, the loveWhere is the love? The love, the love, the love[Outro: Joe Biden & Jennifer Hudson]So the question for us is simple: are we ready?I believe we are, we must beWe can choose a path of becoming angrier, less hopeful, more dividedA path of shadow and suspicionOr, or we can choose a different pathAnd together (Ah-ah), take this chance to heal, to reform, to unite (Hmm)A path of hope and light (Umm-hmm)This is a life-changing electionThis will determine what America is gonna look like for a long, long time (Yes it is)Character is on the ballotCompassion is on the ballot (Compassion)Decency, science, democracy (Yeah)They’re all on the ballotWho we are as a nation, what we stand forAnd most importantly we want to beThat’s all on the ballotAnd the choice could not be more clear
