Everyday People

Everyday People

Everyday people, they make mistakes
They fall into habits
They fall out of balance
They fall from grace.

At the fork in the road, or a bar across the way
They make the wrong choice
Heed the wrong voice
It happens every day.

Talkin’ ’bout young and old
rich and poor
you and me

Verse
Everyday people, like yourselves my friends
They struggle to live
Let go and forgive
They start again
Refugees and survivors, they rise above
Learn to see themselves
In somebody else
They learn to love.
Talkin’ ’bout one by one
day by day
you and me.

‘Cause if the world’s gonna change, who’s gonna change it? Everyday people.

Bridge

If you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem.
We’re all part of the problem
If you don’t change your direction, you’re gonna get where you’re goin!
We’ll get where we’re goin’!

Verse
Everyday people, they make a way
Healing and teaching
Building and reaching
To a brighter day.
It’s the woman next door, the man on the street
It’s marvels and miracles,
And everyday heroes
It’s everyday people.

Talkin’ ’bout side by side
hand in hand
you and me
‘Cause if the world’s gonna change, who’s gonna change it? Everyday people.
And if the world’s gonna change, when do we change it?
Every day.
