Pride (In the Name of Love) – U2

One man come in the name of love     One man come and go     One man come he to justify     One man to overthrow          In the name of love     What more in the name of love     In the name of love     What more in the name of love          One man caught on a barbed wire fence     One man he resist     One man washed up on an empty beach     One man betrayed with a kiss          In the name of love     What more in the name of love     In the name of love     What more in the name of love          Early morning, April four     Shot rings out in the Memphis sky     Free at last, they took your life     They could not take your pride          In the name of love     What more in the name of love     In the name of love     What more in the name of love          In the name of love     What more in the name of love     In the name of love    

Imagine -   John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven   It's easy if you try   No hell below us  Above us only sky
Imagine all the people   Living for today...       Imagine there's no countries   It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for  And no religion too    Imagine all the people  Living life in peace...       You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one   I hope someday you'll join us    And the world will be as one       Imagine no possessions   I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger    A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people  Sharing all the world...       You may say I'm a dreamer   But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us   And the world will live as one
