If children ran the world
There would be no warfare pain
Cancer would be cured
With money lawyers made
The shy would dance with fire
And never run away
No one would die young
There would be no word for hate

Lions would run free
As proud as they are strong
Choirs would teach patience
We all would sing along

You’re letting me go, you know
Yeah you’re letting me go, you know
Yeah you’re letting me go, you know
Yeah you’re letting me go, you know

If children ran the world
Mothers would stay young
Fathers would stay brave
The two would stay in love
A night would never come
Where fear kept us awake
There would be no second chance
There would be no first mistake

Lions would run free
As proud as they are strong
Choirs would teach cadence
We all would sing along

You’re letting me go, you know
Yeah you’re letting me go, you know
Yeah you’re letting me go, you know
Yeah you’re letting me go, you know

When devastation follows you
And inspiration calls for you
When desperation hollows you
Let me go
When devastation follows you
And inspiration calls for you
When desperation hollows you
Let me go

Yeah you’re letting me go
Yeah you’re letting me go
Yeah you’re letting me go
Yeah you’re letting me go

Yeah you’re letting me go
Yeah you’re letting me go
