Ain't got a soapbox I can stand upon
But God gave me a stage, a guitar and a song
My daddy told me, "son, don't you get involved in
Politics, religions or other people's quotes"

I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene 
I know when I have children they will know what it means 
And I pass on these things my family's given to me
Just love and understanding, positivity 

We could change this whole world with a piano 
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
I'm just a boy with a one-man show
No university, no degree, but lord knows 
Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
And the stock market crashing in their portfolios
 While I'll be sitting here with a song that I wrote 
Sing, love could change the world in a moment 
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment 
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment 

The revolution's coming, it's a minute away
I saw people marching in the streets today
You know we are made up of love and hate
But both of them are balanced on a razor blade

I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene 
I know, I'm all for people following their dreams
Just re-remember life is more than fittin' in your jeans 
It's love and understanding, positivity 

We could change this whole world with a piano 
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
I'm just a boy with a one-man show
No university, no degree, but lord knows 
Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
And the stock market crashing in their portfolios
 While I'll be sitting here with a song I wrote 
Sing, love could change the world in a moment 
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment 
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment 

I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene 
You know, the future's in the hands of you and me
So let's all get together, we can all be free
 Spread love and understanding, positivity 

We could change this whole world with a piano 
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
I'm just a boy with a one-man show
No university, no degree, but lord knows 
Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
And the stock market crashing in their portfolios
 While I'll be sitting here with a song I wrote 
Sing, love could change the world in a moment 
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment 
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment
