WHERE IS THE LOVE?


[Verse 1: will.i.am]
What's wrong with the world, mama?
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world's addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that'll bring a trauma
Overseas, yeah, we tryin' to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and the Crips, and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
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 anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love, this'll set us straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear 'em cryin'
Can you practice what you preach?
And would you turn the other cheek?
Father, father, father, help us
Send some guidance from above
These people got me, got me questionin'

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake (and Fergie)]
Where is the love? (love)
Where is the love? (the love)
Where is the love? (the love)
Where is the love? (the love, the love)

[Verse 2: Taboo]
It just ain't the same, old ways have changed
New days are strange, is the world insane?
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gases fillin' lungs of little ones
With ongoing sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself, is the lovin' really gone?
So I can ask myself, really, what is going wrong?
With this world that we livin' in, people keep on givin' in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on, but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, and swept under the rug
If you never know truth, then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all? (Come on, I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all? (Come on, I don't know)
And where's the love y'all?

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Will you practice what you preach?
And would you turn the other cheek?
Father, father, father, help us
Send some guidance from above
These people got me, got me questionin'

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake (and Fergie)]
Where is the love? (love)
Where is the love? (the love)
Where is the love? (the love)
Where is the love? (the love, the love)

[Verse 3: Apl.de.ap]
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-makin'
Selfishness got us followin' the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Whatever happened to the values of humanity?
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality?
Instead of spreadin' love we spreadin' animosity
Lack of understandin' leading us away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive 'til love is found
Now ask yourself…

[Bridge: will.i.am & Justin Timberlake]
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Father, father, father, help us
Send some guidance from above
These people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love?

[Outro]
Now sing with me, y'all (one world, one world)
We only got (one world, one world)
That's all we got (one world, one world)
And something's wrong with it
Something's wrong with it
Something's wrong with the w-w-world
We only got (one world, one world)
That's all we got (one world, one world)
¿DONDE ESTÀ EL AMOR?

No es lo mismo,
a pesar de no haber cambios
los nuevos dias son extraños
¿Está este mundo loco?
Si la paz y el amor son tan fuertes
¿Porqué hay amores que se pierden?
Naciones lanzando bombas,
gases químicos
llenando los pulmones de los niños.
Con el sufrimiento continuo,
de una juventud que muere joven.
Así que pregúntate:
¿Ha desaparecido el amor?
Así podré preguntarme
qué es lo que va mal
en este mundo en el que vivimos
la gente sigue rindiéndose
tomando decisiones equivocadas
sólo fijándose en los beneficios
sin respetarse los unos a los otros
negando a tu hermano.
Estamos en guerra,
pero el motivo está camuflado.
La verdad es un secreto, está oculta.
Si no conoces la verdad,
no conoces el amor.

¿Dónde está el amor?, vamos (no lo sé)
¿Dónde está el amor?....

Gente matando, gente muriendo
niños heridos a los que escuchas llorar.
¿Puedes llevar a la práctica lo que rezas?
¿Pondrías la otra mejilla?

Padre, padre ayúdanos
guíanos desde arriba
Porque la gente me hace, me hace dudar
¿Dónde está el amor?....

Siento el peso del mundo en mis hombros.
A medida que me hago mayor,
la gente se hace más fria.
La mayoria de nosotros
sólo nos preocupamos de ganar dinero.
El egoismo nos hace
seguir nuestro propio camino.
Los medios siempre muestran
información errónea.
Su principal criterio
son las imágenes negativas
contaminando las mentes de los jóvenes
con más rapidez que una bacteria.
Los chicos hacen lo que ven en el cine.
Yo, haya pasado lo que haya pasado
con los valores de la humanidad:
haya pasado lo que haya pasado
con la doctrina de la igualdad.
En vez de propagar amor
difundimos rencor,
falta de entendimiento, lo que lejos de
unirnos nos separa más y más.
Esta es la razón
por la que me siento bajo de moral.
Esta es la razón
por la que me siento deprimido.
No hay duda del porqué
me siento bajo de moral,
tengo que mantener viva mi
esperanza por los que me aman.

¿Dónde está el amor?, vamos (no lo sé)
¿Dónde está el amor?....

Padre, padre ayúdanos
guíanos desde arriba
Porque la gente me hace, me hace dudar
¿Dónde está el amor?....
