Children Of The World

Julian Lennon/Nick Wood

"Children of the World" is the main theme song of a 1993 Japanese animation movie called "Coo." In the movie, the little boy pictured below on the CD cover find the little sea creature also pictured and tries to unite him with his family against the wishes of poachers... least that is what I've made of it.. unfortunately I don't understand Japanese <G>

If I could tell you all the secrets of time
Turn back the pages start out fresh in our minds
We could live a life of peace
Knowing how we'd lived before

Love is a link that can't be denied
Love conquers all in the heart of mankind
But it's so hard to find
When we live our lives so blind
You can't just run and hide
You've got to face your foolish pride

Children of the world, deserve a paradise
Open up your eyes it's plain to see
It's up to you and me

Love has the strength to change this world
Love has the strength to change this world

Together we can stop the earth from crying
Right now, let's start trying
Children of the world unite
To make a better world
For you and me

With every new day when the sun starts to shine
I dream of changes in a heart beat of time
(but) Patience is the key
Feels like an eternity
For our world to be free
Believe in you and me

Children of the world, deserve a paradise
(I said) Open up your eyes it's plain to see
Open up your eyes it's plain to see
It's up to you and me

Love has the strength to change this world
Love has the strength to change this world

Together we can stop the earth from crying
Right now, let's start trying
Children of the world unite
To make a better world
For you and me

Try to make a better world for you and me
Try to make a better world for you and me

Open up your eyes it's plain to see
It's up to you and me
