Lyrics & Music by Dave Gwyther
Album: Wars Will Cease...When We Refuse To Fight Them

Barman (on me entering the pub hosting that evenings open mic): – So what type of music do you play? –
Me (on my 2nd ever live performance): – Oh, some of my own stuff –
Barman: – Well, we had this kid in here last week singing anti-Vietnam war songs. I hope you're not singing about war. –
Me: – Um, yeah. That was me. –
(on the microphone when I got up there): – I'll stop singing about it when we stop causing it –

…This is a song about a time when war is over."
The sun is shining up high in the sky
Birds are singing and flying on by
People are dancing and I'm wondering why
We've never felt like this before

Children are playing and swinging in the trees
Girls are laughing about the birds and the bees
The scent of flowers is being carried on the breeze
And everything is alright

And it doesn't matter if you're black, brown or white
People are making love in the cities tonight
And no one's going to bed hungry tonight
It's a beautiful world we live in

And everyone's happy and everyone's free
And everyone's equal no matter what country
Everyone's a human being can't you see
That's the way the world's meant to be
That's the way the world's meant to be
That's the way the world's meant to be
That's the way the world's meant to be

The sun is shining up high in the sky
Birds are singing and flying on by
People are dancing and I'm wondering why
We've never felt like this before

Children are playing and swinging in the trees
Girls are laughing about the birds and the bees
The scent of flowers is being carried on the breeze
And everything is alright
Everything is alright

'Cause war is over
War is over
War is over
War is over
