Can’t Cross the Ocean
(By Lanny Sherwin)

Chorus: You can’t cross the ocean by staring at the water,
You can’t heal a heart by closing the door,
You can’t change the world by just thinking that you oughta,
You gotta take that first step and then take one more.

Verse 1: This world could use a helping hand,
That’s something everyone understands.
From Africa to New Orleans,
There’s people everywhere in need.
What can we do? Well, I know this much is true:


Verse 2: Superman is not who we need.
It’s gonna take the strength of children who believe
That the world is still a playground we can share
Where grownups learn to take their turn and always play fair.
What a world this could be from sea to shining sea.
