Lyrics to One by India.Arie

World map earth multicultural group of people integration

Millions live their lives

That Muhammad, Krishna, or the Buddha are the way

Still some believe it’s right

To say in the name of Jesus when you pray

We are a human kind of 7 billion

So many different races and religions

Add it all comes down to one

Some say God’s a Him

And still many believe that He is a Her

Does God live in our hearts

Or is She somewhere out there in the universe.

We are a human kind of 7 billion

So many different races and religions

Add it all comes down to one

How far will we have to go to learn the lesson?

Gandhi was a Hindu, Martin Luther King a Christian

Regardless of religion, they knew love was the mission

And it all comes down to one

Is there no God at all?

Or a pantheon of gods up in the sky?

We can heal our broken hearts

If we give up the desire to be right

We are a human kind of 7 billion

So many different races and religions

And we all want the same things

Health, love, prosperity and peace

Tolerance is the seed

And the gift of pure acceptance is the tree

We are a human kind of 7 billion

So many different races and religions

Add it all comes down to one

Whether you are red, brown, yellow, black, or white

A man with a husband, or a woman with a wife

We can debate until the end of time who is wrong or who is right

Or we can see ourselves as one

Cause it all comes down to love

We are a human kind of 7 billion

So many different races and religions

Add it all comes down to one
