about

This track may be re-recorded before being added to the finished "Let There Be Love" album. Written and recorded in the late '80s.

Recorded on my old four track Tascam cassette recorder using an old keyboard that I wish I still had. The rhythm in particular may be 'juiced up', but it's got a pretty good vibe. The lyrics speak for themselves.

lyrics

CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

All of us who were born here
on this planet some call Earth
Share a tiny corner
of the universe
We’ve got to learn to live together,
standing side by side
Or at least stop killing each other
to save our pride

The best I can do
Is remember that I’m just like you

I’m a Citizen of the World
And I am free to believe what I want to believe
-- no-one can take that from me
I’m a Citizen of the World
And I can hope, I can try, and I can dream
About the way things will be
I’m a Citizen of the World

Governments don’t give us any rights,
they just take some away
They try to take control
of what we do and say
But I was born into this world
with the right to live here free
And no-one’s gonna take that right
away from me

Although some have tried
They can’t change the way I feel inside

I’m a Citizen of the World
And I am free to believe what I want to believe
-- no-one can take that from me
I’m a Citizen of the World
And I can hope, I can try, and I can dream
About the way things will be
I’m a Citizen of the World

I’m a Citizen of the World
And I am free to believe what I want to believe
-- no-one can take that from me
I’m a Citizen of the World
And I can hope, I can try, and I can dream
About the way things will be
I’m a Citizen of the World
