Lyrics:


Hello

Holla

Ni hao

Salaam

Shalom

 

Father love mother

Mother love baby

Baby love sweetie

But me love you

 

Life is for the living

Open hearts loving

Caring and connecting

Put a stop to all the pain

Seasons they are changing

We are re-arranging

Dreams are manifesting

Put a stop to all the pain

 

A little bit of me

A little bit of you

The brightest stars are always gonna shine through yeh

We’re the sweet combination crew

And all we’re gonna do is come and party with you, yeh

Everyone will have their time to shine

If you break on through it, if you hold the line, yeh

We just got one ultimate goal

And that’s that everybody here’s gonna have a good time

Hackney’s ready

Ready to rock

Now we’ve got the rhythm

We’re never gonna stop now

We don’t need no trendy stuff

We want substance and heart baby that’s enough, yeh

From the heart that’s where it starts

Buzzing through my body

And I’m feeling the part

You gotta breathe deep, focus well

He’s the man with the energy

I can tell

On the field, we’re keeping it real

Blending and balancing to get the right feel, yeh

Seems like everything is going away

I got my friends and my fam and we’re rocking today, hey

 

Life is for the living

Open hearts loving

Caring and connecting

Put a stop to all the pain

Seasons they are changing

We are re-arranging

Dreams are manifesting

Put a stop to all the pain

-x-

Why we keep on fighting?

All the children dying

Dreams we keep on crushing

Put a stop to all the pain

I know you see me crying

To the hate that you created

It’s a shame the way we’re living

Put a stop to all the pain

-x-

Life, it’s for the living

It’s for living

It’s for living

 

Father love mother

Mother love baby

Baby love sweetie

But me love you

 

Me love you

Me love you
