I heard about these kids walkin' on a train track
Forty tons of steel bearin' down on them
And they just turned their backs
Channel 5 asked the one who survived
"Son, why'd you do such a thing?"
No reply but his eyes cried

Peace, I just need some peace
If I have to, I'll do anything
Don't need your love or your sympathy
But I cannot go on living without peace

I know a man who sits and stares at kitchen cabinet door
He hides a whiskey bottle he hasn't touched since
Well, this is day four
He told his wife, this time he would try She was just about to leave
No reply but her eyes cried

Peace, I just need some peace
If I have to, I'll do anything
Don't need your love or your sympathy
But I cannot go on living without peace

I have a friend who's looking for God
A few good self-help books is as far as she's gotten

Say a prayer tonight for that desperate child
Say a prayer tonight for that man and his wife
Say a prayer for the hurtin' searchin' for the one thing we all need
If you don't know what to say
Look up to Heaven's face
And pray peace
