I wish that I could see the world
Through the eyes of a soldier
Traveling far and away but still
Wishing that I could be closer

A kid forced to be all grown up
Fight under foreign skies
If we could all just take some time
To see the world through their eyes

[Chorus]
If we could all just stop
Take a second to breathe
Look around for once
And see what else they see
I think we’d hate ourselves
Ungrateful irony
So lets all stop
And see the world they see

I wish that I could see the world
Through the eyes of a mother
Barely 16 and she’s
Forced to act like shes older

She didn’t want this life but
Shes been forced to grow
Two heartbeats in her now
It’s a cruel world she now knows

Chorus

I wish that I could see the world
Through the eyes of a stranger
Know what its like to be
Somebody else out there

We’re all a little different
All have different scars
Whose to say one ways better
We all share this world of ours

Chorus


Be as cruel as you want guys!!!

A kid forced to be all grown updon't like this line here, sounds too cliche, maybe you could try something like ' A boy shoved into manhood'
Fight under foreign skies
If we could all just take some time
To see the world through their eyes
Don't like 'foreign skies'.. could be just me, but we all live uner the same sky


[Chorus]
If we could all just stop
Take a second to breathe
Look around for once
And see what else they see
I think we’d hate ourselves
Ungrateful irony
So lets all stop
And see the world they see
I like it, it's simple and it works

I wish that I could see the world
Through the eyes of a mother
Barely 16 and she’sChange 16 to sixteen, so it looks better
Forced to act like shes olderkinda meh.. nothing good, nothing bad

She didn’t want this life but
Shes been forced to grow
Two heartbeats in her now
It’s a cruel world she now knows
loved this stanza

Chorus

I wish that I could see the world
Through the eyes of a stranger
Know what its like to be
Somebody else out there

We’re all a little different
All have different scars
Whose to say one ways better
We all share this world of ours
Your ending seems kinda rushed.. i guess it works cos it ties the two verses together

Thanks for that man,
I actually may just change it that boy into manhood line. THanks.
As for the foriegn skies thing, I said that purposefully,
to corrospond with the overall, "why cant we all just get along aspect" of the song.

Thanks again.
