Song Info :  "My song 'Understanding' could also be called 'Find a Solution'. War is the opposite of peace and I find it difficult to accept the idea that it could ever help to create a peaceful world. I know that in order to be free we have to stand up for our beliefs and attempt to do our best to help those who cannot help themselves. However, there is so much to be lost whenever there is war. Human life is far too valuable to be sacrificed, regardless of the noble intentions of those who are fighting for what they personally believe in. I hope that humanity will someday find a solution other than war." - Louise Ford

Verse 1 Can you hear thunder in the distance
Can you see lightning flash across the sky
Why do we challenge our existence
Heartless war, the young are sent to die
Chorus Don't you know we could find a solution
We can search for another way
Give to others as we would be given
Understanding from day to day
Verse 2 Can you feel the hunger of the millions
Can't you see them living in the streets
Old and young searching for an answer
Soldiers praying for war to cease
Chorus Don't you know we could find a solution
We can search for another way
Give to others as we would be given
Understanding from day to day
Narration Peace at last, let us hope war has passed
And we'll live no more with this madness
This we pray, for a better day
For an end to the suffering and sadness
Verse 3 All these wars never solve the problem
So much lost and we wonder why
Children weep, left without a family
And the old wait they're turn to die
Chorus Don't you know we could find a solution
We can search for another way
Give to others as we would be given
Understanding from day to day

Don't you know we could find a solution
We can search for another way
Give to others as we would be given
Understanding from day to day
Understanding
