One Step at a Time

When something is wrong 

Let's work to make it right

Help those among us

Too weak for the fight

Give a voice to the quiet 

Give the blind some light

Protect our treasures from thieves in the night

 

We can move a mountain one rock at a time 

We can tear down a wall one block at a time 

We can find a new way with an open mind 

We can fix this old world one thing at a time

 

If it makes no sense 

It's probably not right

If it's hid in the darkness

Let's all shed some light

It will take some work to get things back in line  

A long journey starts with the first step each time

 

Chorus

 

We have to stop calling names and stop looking for fights

We all have opinions but they're not black or white

Your bottles half empty my bottles half full

Together we can move so much more when we pull

We can move a mountain one rock at a time

We can tear down a wall one block at a time

We can find our way if keep an open mind

We can change this old world one thing at time

We can move a mountain one rock at a time 

We can tear down a wall one block at a time

We Can find a new way with an open mind

We can fix this old world one thing at a time
