"NOT JUST ONE LIFE"

---Yeah---
It’s not just one life.-
--
Verse 1
On a cold dark night on a city street,
She hears a shot, then running feet.
Her heart pounds as she runs down to see,
She cries, ”Don’t let it be!” Yeah!
Reaching down, she holds him near,
She calls his name, but no answer she hears.
Gone are the hopes,
The love and care of all those years,
Only left are the tears.

Chorus 1
No, it’s not just one life,
Not just one out of millions,
It’s somebody’s father or mother or child.
No, it’s not just one life, stop! It’s somebody’s loved one
[Can’t you feel the pain?]
That’s been taken away. [Can’t you feel the pain?]

Verse 2
On a war-torn street with smoke-filled skies,
A shot rings out; another one dies.
Off in the distance, a young boy cries,
“Don’t let it be! Please don’t let it be daddy!”
One more dead, is that all it means?
Is it just another image on the TV screen?
Or the loss of the hopes,
The love and care of all those years,
Who will wipe his tears?

Chorus 2
Woh, it’s not just one life,
Not just one out of millions,
It’s somebody’s father or mother or child.
No, it’s not just one life, stop!
It’s somebody’s loved one.--

Bridge
Every life is special to someone,
Behind every life is a story of love, yeah.

Chorus 3
Oh, it’s not just one life,
Not just one out of millions,
It’s somebody’s lover or mother or child.
No, it’s not just one life,

Chorus 4
Not just one life.--
It’s somebody’s father or mother or child.
No, it’s not just one life, stop!
It’s somebody’s loved one.--
[Not just one life.] -No-o-o ...
