ALL CHILDREN HERE
by Selia Qynn
Come here, my son, I've something to tell.
Put down your toys and listen well.
You are a child, precious and dear.
And I'm just like you; we are all children here.
I'm just like you; we are all children here.
My job as your mom is to show you how
To love yourself as I'm loving you now.
Always be gentle to the boy within,
And learn how to be your own best friend.
Learn how to be your own best friend.
CH: We are all children here so let's be fair.
There's plenty here for all of us if we share.
We are all children here so why not care?
Just open up, let love inside.
Forgive someone who hurt your pride.
Enough of us can turn the tide of fear.
We are all children here.
Some men grow up to be happy and well;
When the child inside smiles, it's easy to tell.
But some men grow up to be heartless and cruel;
The child in their hearts at the mercy of fools.
Hearts at the mercy of fools.
The world's mixed up, there is so much pain.
We see it over and over again.
And children grow up and then they grow old;
Still, parents can't teach what parent's don't know.
No, they can't teach what they don't know.
If we love each other when times are hard,
We can heal the world from our own backyard.
Look at your neighbor and remember the child,
The one in his heart will give you a smile.
The one in his heart will smile.
