In the quiet of the night I wake to a tune in my ear (Oh-ey-oh).
I feel the rhythm of a drum begin to beat to a song thatís loud and clear:

of a place where happiness and love are all around,
of a land where selfishness and greed cannot be found.

And my heart raced as I wondered what to do;
if this mad world that we care about could strive toward something new.

Though a fit of darkness came and clouded up my mind,
still, I saw a world where hope and light was ours to find.

Now Iím crying out loud for peace, for justice, for hope, for love, for change.

Then the promise of the dawning day shines a light upon my face.
A new beginning for a world stained by hate; hope for all the human race.

And I find the strength within to rise just like the sun;
Like a soldier standing guard until the war is won.

Now Iím fighting out loud for peace, for justice, for hope, for love, for change.

So Iíll take charge, be brave, work hard, have faith, stand strong for what is good,
Iíll be the change.

Be the change.

Jacob Narverud
