What If?

Song Description

Simply asking the question, "What if we choose love and forgiveness when we are hurt and harmed instead of doling out our pain and wrath?" What would the result be and what could the world be like then? Most will say that is too soft and does not work, but that response requires an honest look at how well the current philosophy is working.

Lyrics

Every time the clock strikes 9/11 I remember that day The sadness and pain of people hurting others that way

And I wonder what would cause someone to hate another so, when deep down inside I'm sure we all want peace and love to grow

What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain?

But the enemy is evil and they must be done away, by any means and at any cost, evil cannot be allowed to stay

So we fight it and we wound it and we strike right at the cause, but too late we realize that evil is as evil does

What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain?

Love, love, what makes it so hard to find? Love, the most precious gift Love, love, is it so hard to be kind? Love gives the power to live

Does the enemy see us in the same way that we see them? Are they also giving their all to see the good side win?

Yeah, we've tried fighting back and we have tried to overcome, what more could be lost if we tried to give our love?

What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain?

What if? What if?
