Playing For Change Lyrics

Playing for love
Playing for keeps
Playing for light come down
And set me free
Playing to say
Playing for change
Playing for peace

[Verse 1]
Brother, Brother
Come walk with me
Show me the tops of the canyons above the sea
And say look around you
This kingdom’s wide
To carry the weight of this world with pride
I am humbled
And I’m confused
There is no mountain I’ve found here that I can move
You say sweet love
Your heart is great
So will you follow it closely and let it show you your fate


[Verse 2]
Darling, Darling
Come take my hand
See that no border, no boundary can hold you in
And let loose your voices
And raise them up
Remember to let through the music it helps to continue to carry us
[Chorus] [x2]

Playing For Change (PFC) is a Certified B Corp (Social Purpose Organization) created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting music programs for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet. To learn more, visit
