Heaven on Earth
We need it now
Iґm sick of all of this hanginґaround
Sick of sorrow
Sick of pain
Sick of hearing again and again
That thereґs gonna be
Peace on Earth

Where I grew up
There werenґt many trees
Where there was, we teared them down
And use them on our enemies
They said that what you mock
Will surely overtake you
And you become a monster
So the monster will not brake you

Itґs already gone to far
Who said that if you go in hard
You wonґt get hurt

Jesus, could you take the time
To throw a drowninґman a line
Peace on Earth
Tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are livinґon the ground
Peace on Earth
No whos or whys
No one cries like a mother cries
For peace on Earth
She never got to say goodbye
To see the colour in his eyes
Now heґs in the dirt
Thatґs peace on Earth

Theyґre reading names out over the radio
All the folks the rest of us wonґt get to know
Sean and Julia, Gareth, Ann and Breda
Their lives are bigger than any big idea

Jesus, could you take the time
To throw a drowninґman a line
Peace on Earth
Tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are livinґon the ground
Peace on Earth

Jesus, this song you wrote
These words are stickinґin my throat
Peace on Earth
Hear it every Christmas time
But hope and history wonґt rhyme
So whatґs it worth?
Is peace on Earth

Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth
