(Intro)

It's scary
Aren't you scared too?
Well you should be
When our egos always overpower
Sure, there's light in the world, but it's dimmed by the darkness, so heart-shattering
And I’m staring in disbelief, eyes crying, cover my ears, block out the noise
But it's too loud, all the fighting, all the screaming never calms down

(Chorus) 

Love is too rare
And people are too hurt
That combo never works
We say we care
And then we lower our worth
What’s up with that
Oh, love is too rare
And people are too hurt
It keeps on getting worse 
 
(Verse 1)
We're tired beyond words
Burned hearts and bruised bodies
But these wounds will turn to battle scars
And everyone will know our journeys
Outside there's always a fight
Hard to read the lines between truth and lie 
We're blind to our own disguise
But I have faith that someday we will love, all of us
And trust me when I say we will find a way
To heal our souls and return to planet Earth
Still, this ache is past getting on my nerves 
I know this pain is past just getting on your nerves

(Pre-Chorus)

We must unite
No more wasted time 
We must unite
Open our eyes
Yes, we must unite
For the sake of life
We must unite

(Chorus) 

Love is too rare
And people are too hurt
That combo never works
We say we care
And then we lower our worth
What’s up with that
Oh, love is too rare
And people are too hurt
It keeps on getting worse 
 
(Verse 2)

I look at the world and try to find the best 
But it’s hard when no one else is looking with me
We all act tough and brave
Yet not enough of us stand up to hate
We all shout loud and proud
But it's silent when bullies come around
We are the future and we keep trying to move on
But that's not gonna help us 
When we haven't fixed what we’ve already broken
Sure, we can rise and we can speak
We can change and we can lead
But first, oh first we got to be a team

(Pre-Chorus)

We must unite
No more great divides
We must unite
Open our minds
Yes, we must unite
For peace is the prize
We must unite

(Chorus)

Love is too rare
And people are too hurt
That combo never works
We say we care
And then we lower our worth
What’s up with that
Oh, love is too rare
And people are too hurt
It keeps on getting worse 

(Outro)

It’s scary
Aren’t you scared too?
Well you should be
So scary
Aren’t you scared too?
And we should be

    Awww I love this, it's so true! "peace is the prize" -awesome!!
    "But first, oh first we got to be a team" was my favourite line!!
    "egos always overpower" yes- I think that is the truest thing I've read today!!
    RE: Oh you are so lucky! It’s amazing but it also sucks a lot! But awww thank you!! You’re so sweet and haha, awww, loll, I barely see him so there’s not much chance of anything- which is why I wrote the piece to you know, get out all those emotions XD but thank you so so much!!!
    And aww yeah, scrapbooks are so awesome! Side track: I tried to do one once but gave up after like 2 pages LOL
    Ooooh that’s so cool! And the weird thing is, the one I used didn’t taste different at all! In fact, cause it was depression era, apart from the frosting, it didn’t have any butter either!
    And yesss! And awww, haha, the fact that you thought about that just makes me so happy that I found such an amazing friend!! Haha and yes!!
