Blood Into Gold – Peter Buffett featuring Akon

Even if this is not your normal taste in music…give it a listen.  Powerful message!

 

 

 

LYRICS:
When I go to sleep at night
I wonder why I dont feel the pain
From where the sun is shining bright
But empty shells of lives remain

I know the news will tell me why
And well watch others take the fall
But who will hear when someone cries
That saving one can save us all

Can you open your heart?
Will you give me your hand?
Can you look in my eyes?
Will you see who I am?

The blood of your sons and
The blood of your daughters
The blood of my sisters
The blood of my brothers
The blood of your fathers
The blood of your mothers
All that you own through the blood of another

See when I go to sleep at night
Everything seems to fade away
If I live to see daylight
What part of life will I decide to change?

I see the sun.
Kind of reminds me of the gold that brightens our day
I see the rain
And also see all the blood that is washes away

CHORUS

Now its time to shine the light
In all the corners that we fear
We can win without a fight
But only love can take us there

Can you open your heart?
Will you give me your hand?
Can you look in my eyes?
Will you see who I am?
