No Enemies
this page is a work in progress
Theme: Resilience (of the soul)

Climate disruption has major social consequences; from communities struggling to cope with increasingly dangerous bush fires, storms, drought and heat waves to potentially staggering numbers of climate refugees needing safe haven. All these risk increasing community fear and division, with people looking for a scapegoat for the troubles. To avoid this we must build much stronger, more inclusive and compassionate communities. All of us need to play a role to ensure we reject cynicism, fear and prejudice so that the whispers of an enemy, whether internal or external, have not chance to poison our souls.

No Enemies


(Em7 Asus7)

I’ve got no enemies today
That’s the way its gonna stay
I got no enemies today
I’m going to work to make it stay that way


I’ve lived on earth for all my life
I’ve had my share of life and strife
My heart challenged in many ways
Let go of love on many days


There are people with no love for me
People who could be my enemies
I don’t want to play their game
They may hate but I’ll try not to do the same


Maybe they’re gonna shoot me down
Pull me under watch me drown
But they can never control my soul
How I respond that’s under my control

So I say
No enemies I do believe
No enemies is what I see
No enemies in my soul
No enemies will my soul know
 

No enemies I do believe
No enemies is what I see
No enemies in my soul
No enemies [STOP] will my soul know
 

I’ve got no enemies today
That’s the way its gonna stay
I got no enemies today
I’m going to work and work and work and work to make it stay that way


I’ve lived on earth for all my life
I’ve had my share of life and strife
My heart challenged in many ways
Let go of love ...

Let go of love ...

Let go of love ...

On many days

On many days

On many days

Far too many days


Well there are people with no love for me
People who could be my enemies
I don’t want to play their game
They may hate
But I’ll try not to do the same

Try not to do the same

Try not to do the same

Try not to do the same


Maybe they’re gonna shoot me down
Pull me under watch me drown
They can never control my soul

They'll never control my soul

Never control my soul

They'll never control my soul

never control ...
Unless I let them

Unless I let them

 

So I say no enemies I do believe
No enemies is what I see
No enemies in my soul
No enemies will my soul know
No enemies I do believe
No enemies is what I see
No enemies in my soul
No enemies [STOP] will my soul …
know … oh …
