Music With Meaning – Matisyahu: One Day (Performed Live)

Wes: This song is a must hear for anyone who advocates world peace. Matisyahu, who makes a lot of conscious music that I’ll share to the blog in the future, penned this unique and (r)evolutionary song about his desire to see a world at peace. It’s safe to say that we all echo his desire for ‘the people to say that we don’t want to fight no more’.

Enjoy this song, and listen to it with open and attentive ears. I decided to post a live version so you can hear it more authentically.

    “One Day”

    Sometimes I lay
    Under the moon
    And thank God I’m breathing
    Then I pray
    Don’t take me soon
    ‘Cause I am here for a reason

    Sometimes in my tears I drown
    But I never let it get me down
    So when negativity surrounds
    I know some day it’ll all turn around because…

    All my life I’ve been waiting for
    I’ve been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don’t wanna fight no more
    There will be no more wars
    And our children will play
    One day [x6]

    It’s not about
    Win or lose
    Because we all lose
    When they feed on the souls of the innocent
    Blood-drenched pavement
    Keep on moving though the waters stay raging

    In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
    It might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you no way (no way)

    Sometimes in my tears I drown (I drown)
    But I never let it get me down (get me down)
    So when negativity surrounds (surrounds)
    I know some day it’ll all turn around because…

    All my life I’ve been waiting for
    I’ve been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don’t wanna fight no more
    There will be no more wars
    And our children will play
    One day [x6]

    One day this all will change
    Treat people the same
    Stop with the violence
    Down with the hate

    One day we’ll all be free
    And proud to be
    Under the same sun
    Singing songs of freedom like
    One day [x2]

    All my life I’ve been waiting for
    I’ve been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don’t wanna fight no more
    There will be no more wars
    And our children will play
    One day [x6]
