Inspirational Song: Imagine by John Lennon

Written and performed by John Lennon. It’s the best-selling single of his solo career.

Its lyrics encourage the listener to imagine a world at peace without the barriers of borders or the divisions of religion and nationality, and to consider the possibility that the focus of humanity should be living a life unattached to material possessions.

Rolling Stone described Imagine as Lennon’s “greatest musical gift to the world“, praising “the serene melody; the pillowy chord progression; and that beckoning, four-note piano figure”.

LYRICS

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today… Aha-ah…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You,..
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You,..

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
