Peace In Our Time Lyrics

Who holds the money? Who holds the need?
Who holds the strings of misery or the purse of greed?
And the gunmen reap while the gangsters sow
And law is cheap when the smugglers go

(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time
(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time

While I have a life to live
Then I have no life to give
(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time

In sun kissed rooms, in city slums
Minds are restless till the airmail comes
From the forest floor to the western mind
A chat show topic on a party line

And the hardest love of all is to forgive
As the world comes tumbling down

(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time
(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time

While I have a life to live
Then I have no life to give
(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time

Let all the rain come down on blind desire
And like a thundercloud that holds a prairie fire

I hear the blame and I see the cause
A stronger voice and a stronger law
But buyers buy and sellers sell
Public consumption of a private hell

(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time
(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time

While I have a life to live
Then I have no life to give
(Give us peace)
They're gonna give us peace in our time

(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time
(Give us peace)
Give us peace in our time

While I have a life to live
Then I have no life to give
(Give us peace)
Yeah, give us peace in our time
