All I Need

Written By: Protestry Jones

All I need, is to just be free,
free to just be me.
That's really all I need.

All I need, is a hand to hold,
a warm body against the cold.
That's really all I need.

But war, what's all the killing for?
Why do we always choose that door?
Tell me, tell me why choose war?

And peace, oh the sweet release,
of a heart and mind at ease.
That's really all I need.

(Guitar solo)

All I need, is a roof over my head,
someplace safe and dry to make my bed.
That's really all I need.

All I need, is safe food to eat and water to drink,
a crossword puzzle now and then to make me think.
That's really all I need.

But war, why are we always making more?
Is that what our children's children have in store?
Tell me, tell me, why choose war?

And peace, how do we make the violence cease?
Don't nurture violence, nurture peace.
That's really all we need.

(Guitar solo)

All we need, is the food to feed,
all the mouths and eyes that plead.
That's really all we need.

All we need, is to stem this greed,
leave just a little for seed.
That's really all we need.

But war, what's all the bombing for?
How many bodies more?
Tell me, tell me why choose war?

So please, can't we just have peace?
That's really all we need.
That's really all we need.

(Guitar solo)

All we need, is for the sun to rise,
to bring nature's bounty to our eyes.
That's really all we need.

All we need, is the moon surprise,
the comforting nightlight in our skies.
That's really all we need.
