black eyed peas – where is the love (remake 2016) lyrics

[intro]
where is the love ?

[pre-chorus]
people killing people dying
children hurting i hear them crying
can you practice what you preaching
would you turn the other cheek again
mama mama mama tell us
what the h-ll is going on
can we all just get along
father father father help us
send some guidance from above
cause people got me got me questioning
[chorus]
where is the love
yo what’s going on with the world momma
(where is the love)
yo people living like they ain’t got no mommas
(where is the love)
i think they all distracted by the drama
and attracted to the traume momma
(where is the love)
i think they don’t understand the concept
or the meaning of karma
where is the love ?
overseas yeah they trying to stop terrorism
(where is the love)
over here on the streets the police shoot
the people put the bullets in ’em
(where is the love)
but if you only got love for your own race
(where is the love)
then you’re gonna leave sp-ce for others to discriminate
(where is the love)

[verse 1]
and to discriminate only generates hate
and when you hate then you’re bound to get irate
madness is what you demonstrate
and that’s exactly how hate works and operates
man we gotta set it straight
take control of your mind and just meditate
and let your soul just gravitate
to the love so the whole world celebrate it

[pre-chorus]
people killing people dying
children hurting i hear them crying
can you practice what you preaching
would you turn the other cheek again
mama mama mama tell us
what the h-ll is going on
can we all just get along
father father father help us
send some guidance from above
cause people got me got me questioning

[chorus]
it just ain’t the same always in change
(where’s the love)
new days are strange is the world insane
(where’s the love)
nation dropping bombs killing our little ones
(where’s the love)
ongoing suffering as the youth die young
(where’s the love)

[verse 2]
where is the love when a child gets murdered
or a cops get knocked down
black lives not now
everybody matter to me
all races y’all don’t like what i’m saying ?
haterade tall cases
everybody hate somebody
guess we all racist
black eyed peas do a song about love
and y’all hate this
all these protest with different colored faces
we was all born with a heart
why we gotta chase it
and every time i look around

[chorus]
every time i look up every time i look down
no one’s on a common ground
(where’s the love)
and if you never speak truth
then you never know how love sounds
(where’s the love)
and if you never konw love
then you never know god wow
(where’s the love)
where’s the love y’all ? i don’t i don’t know
where’s the truth y’all ? i don’t know

[bridge]
people killing people dying
children hurting i hear them crying
can you practice what you preaching
would you turn the other cheek again
father father father help us
send some guidance from above
cause people got me got me questioning
(where is the love) x2

[chorus]
love is the key
(where is the love)
love is the answer
(where is the love)
love is the solution
(where is the love)
they don’t want us to love
(where is the love)
love is powerful
(where is the love)

[verse 3]
my mama asked me why i never vote (never vote)
cause police men want me dead and gone (dead and gone)
that election looking like a joke (such a joke)
and the weed man still selling dope (oh lord)
somebody gotta give these n-gg-s hope (give us hope)
all he ever wanted was a smoke (oh my gosh)
said he can’t breathe with his hands in the air
laying on the ground died from a chocke
where is the love
i feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
as i’m getting older y’all people gets colder
most of us only care about money making
selfishness got us following the wrong direction
wrong information was shown by the media
negative images is the main criteria
infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
kids wanna act like what they see inthe cinemas

[chorus]
what happened to the love and the values of humanity ?
(where is the love)
what happened to the love and the fairness and equality ?
(where is the love)
instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity
(where is the love)
lack of understanding leading us away from unity
(where is the love)
