Lyrics:

Imagining
2003 LoPresti/Rubenstein

CHORUS:

John, I am... imagining - I am
Imagining - I am.
In a world hell-bent upon,
Revenge instead of understanding
I remain right here, deep-breathing Prayer
and
Imagining...

VERSE 1:

Far away isn't as far as it seems
I am of you - you are of me
Your hunger, angst, and aching need
will find me eventually
We are connected inextricably
I am of you - you are of me

HALF CHORUS:

John, I am... Imagining - I am
Imagining - I am

VERSE 2:

I've never been so afraid to speak Peace
suddenly, i risk disgusting, irritating
It makes me nervous, makes me pause,
but not for long, 'cause i believe:
We are connected inextricably
I am in you - you are in me

CHORUS:
John, I am... imagining - I am
Imagining - I am.
In a world hell-bent upon,
Revenge instead of understanding
I remain right here, deep-breathing Prayer
and
Imagining...

BRIDGE:
Genuflecting to our world's Diversity
Reverence for every single living being
Knowing the more we share, the more there'll be
Walking this beautiful world... Fearlessly
Living in a world where no one is starving
Investing in our children more than our weapons
Imagining our oceans, air, forest all cherished
Imagining the Great White Hope becomes Rainbowed
Imagining the black sheep being restored her
Respectability
I am
Imagining...

John, I am...Imagining, I am
Imagining....I am.
