Press Play- NY2LA

For a while I've been thinking about what a song for our generation would be like. What would be in it? What would the Christians in the new millennium use to distinguish themselves musically from others? This song is one of those songs that expresses that: The calling that through the power of Jesus Christ we can make a change, we can make a difference:


New York to LA

Everybody get together
Let's work it out
Got the answer for this world
Let's make it count

Uh oh, uh oh
It's time to live it out
This crazy world we're livin' in
Is lookin' to us now

Oh, we all need love
A different kind of love
One that only comes from above

Everybody dance
Everybody move
We can make a change
From New York to LA

It's made up to you and me
So what's it gonna be
We can make a stand today
For love and unity

Uh oh, uh oh
I think the time has come
For us to make a difference
And live as one



Don't know you are
Don't know what you think
But you're going nowhere
if you stood in the sink
And we right on the brink
of breaking in here
Livin' the life that is
That seems so obscure
and we changing the world
and healing the hurt
and taking you there
with every word

And the signs on the minds
so yes we go in
Finale up
We at the big end

We are here on planet earth
To make a change
To stand for those who cannot

To never back down
But stand proud for God
The one and only true love

A different kind of love
A love that gives and forgives
Doesn't judge but extends a helping hand
A love that finds a need and fills it

A different kind of love
A love that shares hope, vision and dreams
A love that's not relevant, but revolutionary

Everybody dance
Everybody move
We can make a change
From New York to LA
