Plead for More

PLEAD FOR MORE

Every woman, every man
Do everything you can and
Always leave them loving more
Raise your hand
Raise a smile and
Be thankful for a while
You’re surrounded by the ones you adore
Don’t let Father Time, determine when you call
Be honest with yourself be good to one and all
So climb that mountain
Come swim to shore
Just march upon the world
And plead for more
So make a promise
Take a stand
Don’t dismiss them out of hand
Just open your eyes and see
In a world so full of pain
There’s so much that you can gain
When you realise that we all agree
Don’t let Father Time, determine when you call
Be honest with yourself be good to one and all
So climb that mountain
Come swim to shore
Just march upon the world
And plead for more
Hear the echoes of the brave souls gone
And be a better man for the world to lean upon
