Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
If we give a little bit of love maybe we can change the world

[Verse 1]
You think you're so small like you're itty-bitty
Just one match in the lights of the city
Walking up to strangers on the side of the street, like
A quarter in a cup will get the up on their feet, like
You think you're never gonna make your mark
Sit back and watch the world while it falls apart, like
Out of sight, out of mind, like
Like it's just a waste of time, like, like, like

[Hook]
Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
If we give a little love maybe we can change the world
I said
Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
Sing it if you're with me
All you boys and all you girls
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
If we give a little love maybe we can change the world

[Verse 2]
Wishing on a shooting star in the sky
We can do anything if we try
Can't resurrect Ghandi, resurrect King
But if put our heads together we can do anything
Like, you don't have to be a billionaire
You don't have to have much to show to show much care
Like give a wink, give a kiss
Like give a little happiness, like, like, like

[Hook]
Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
If we give a little love maybe we can change the world
I said
Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
Sing it if you're with me
All you boys and all you girls
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
If we give a little love maybe we can change the world

[Bridge]
Don't let it bring you down now, down now
Don't let it bring you down now, down now
Ain't got nothing but love now, love now
Ain't got nothing but love now, love now
Don't let it bring you down now, down now
Don't let it bring you down, down now
Ain't got nothing but love now, love now
Ain't got nothing but love now, love now

[Hook]
Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
If we give a little love maybe we can change the world
I said
Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
Sing it if you're with me
All you boys and all you girls
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
If we give a little love maybe we can change the world

[Outro]
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
If we give a little bit of love maybe we can change the world

Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
Let me see you put your hearts up, yeah
If we give a little bit of love maybe we can change the world

Hey yeah, yeah yeah yeah
