Push 04:36
Verse 1 People… we need to come together now Confusion all over the world, just look around Open your doors and your windows now, cause the sun is going down on you It’s starting to lose its shine A-Bridge But like the flowers need the rain Just like seasons change Go as far as you can and just PUSH Chorus Push, push, push, push, push, push, push, push Verse 2 People come and people go Caught in a breeze Can’t find no direction and no stability Said it would be nice if we could all just get along Like the hummingbird singing her song Something’s in the air, we need more humility to cause we don’t even care Repeat A-bridge Repeat Chorus Melody Bridge I don’t understand The purpose of dividing lines Look inside of your hands; you’ll see it’s the same 2 They can say what they like Nobody cares who is wrong or right The fact is that you’re my brother and that will never change 3 Don’t you want to be free Like the leaves falling from the trees There’s no difference between you and me so just……PUSH C’mon now Break down Keep on moving, Keep on moving, Keep on moving, Keep on moving Keep on moving, Keep on moving, Keep on moving, Keep on moving Adlib growl: ayeeeeeeeyayeeeeyayeeee Yaaaaaaaaaah You got to push (if you wanna grow) You got to move (if you wanna grow) You got to love, love, love (if you wanna grow) You got to push (if you wanna grow) You got to move, move, move, move, move, move, moooooooove Repeat A-bridge Repeat Chorus
