A Song For A Sunday.

Peace Will Come.

Lyrics and Vocals: American singer-songwriter, the late Melanie Anne Safka Schekeryk, professionally known as Melanie or Melanie Safka, who sadly passed away on January 23rd, 2024.

The song, “Peace Will Come”, is a hope that all humans will to come together and embrace understanding in the face of worldwide conflict and adversity. The song addresses the universal longing for harmony and the belief that change is always possible if we attempt to unite as one.

The “please buy one” line, in the lyrics, is understood to refer to bracelets introduced in the late 1960’s, by a now-defunct organization, known as ‘Voices in Vital America’ (VIVA), which bore the name of a prisoner of war (POW) or a person reported as missing in action (MIA).
The wearer would also be seen as being totally anti-war.

Peace Will Come.

There’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.


Well sometimes when I am feeling as big as the land,
With the velvet hill in the small of our backs,
And our hands are playing the sand.
And my feet are swimming in all of the waters,
All of the rivers are givers to the ocean,
According to plan, according to man.


Well sometimes when I am feeling so grand,
And I become the world,
And the world becomes the man,
And my song becomes a part of the river,
I cry out to keep me just the way I am,
According to plan.

According to man, according to plan.

Oh there’s a chance peace will come, in your life, please buy one.
But sometimes when we have reached the end
With our velvet hill in the small of our backs
And our hands are clutching the sand.
Will our blood become a part of the river?
All of the rivers are givers to the ocean,
According to plan, according to man.
Oh there’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.

There’s a chance peace will come in your life, please buy one.

END
