Have you ever thought of the colors

being friends

when mostly people sit around

and still condemn

after movements and history

the Dream sleeps in documentaries

have you ever thought of the colors

being friends

 

          So tell me

          come on and tell me

          please tell me

          you better think twice

          yeah tell me

          come on and tell me now

          please tell me

          do you sleep good at night?

          do you sleep good at night ?

          come on and tell me

          tell me   

         

Have you ever thought of the nations

being friends

when all we seem to want

is for people's lives just to end

with lip service we profess

nothing our bombs confess

have you ever thought of the nations

being friends

 

Have you ever thought of just being friends

tell me now

tell me

have you ever thought of just being

friends

being friends

 

 

Have You Ever Thought

 

Have you ever thought of just being friends

when so many people you see these days

just pretend

they look on the world to see

what they can get for free

have you ever thought of just being friends

 

Have you ever thought of the genders

being friends

when no matter what we do

we can't make amends

so much progress and liberation

still hide a sense of desperation

have you ever thought of the genders

being friends
