I don’t see the world as a half empty glass
I don’t know enough to be a pessimist
I believe in the potential of the human heart
Every day I resolve to make a new start

We can change the world
It’s like the thoughts in our heads
I guess you could call me
Call me, an optimist
What we believe about ourselves
It all comes true
You’d better check your point
Your point of view

The prophets of doom fill the world with despair
How can we love when we’re so filled with fear?
They tell us we’re living in the end times
Turn on their news and turn off your life

We can change the world
It’s like the thoughts in our heads
I guess you could call me
Call me, an optimist
What we believe about ourselves
It all comes true
You’d better check your point
Your point of view

When I look at the world I try to see the good
It starts at home and in my neighborhood
And I still believe in the golden rule
So I’m careful with what I say and I do

We can change the world
It’s like the thoughts in our heads
I guess you could call me
Call me, an optimist
What we believe about ourselves
It all comes true
You’d better check your point
Your point of view
