about

‘Children’ started out as a plea. In one way or another this country has been tuning out the rest of the world. I believe boundaries can’t truly divide people and we have many more similarities than perceived differences. The concept of learning about other cultures is what I was trying to awaken through a simple lyric. I refer to the collective us as “Children” as we are all children of this world and students of its ways.

lyrics

Children
-Music and Lyrics by John Zay

Children
You need to see the world
You need to feel the world
Taste the world
Know it understand

We left the ocean
To walk on through these lands
Now it’s time to grow again
There’s so much more at hand
--
Ask yourself
Is it enough to know yourself?
To feel yourself
Make sense of yourself
Beyond the good and the bad

Tell yourself
You’re gonna reach yourself
You’re gonna take the chance
To be yourself
And risk all you have

The smaller your world becomes
The bigger you will be
The more you work from inside
The better you will see

Chorus:
Listen to your heart today
And let go of your mind
Now is what the moment says
So let go of your mind
-----

Children
C’mon and greet the world
Embrace the ways
That people live
In all her different lands

Mostly what you’ll see
Is people need love like you and me
Mostly what you’ll find
Is here at home we’ve been so blind

Chorus:
Listen to your heart today
And let go of your mind
Now is what the moment says
So let go of your mind
Listen to your heart today
And let go of your mind
