Lyrics
Why don't we both surrender?
Before we both get burned
So many shots fired
So many daggers thrown
Can you think of anything
We have heard from all this menace?
Have we learned from all this time?
Have we learned from all this business
With the gun and the knife?

I throw up my hands for you
And if you throw up your hands for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah
I throw up my hands, my hands for you
And if you throw up your hands for me
What a wonderful world this could be, be, be...

I remember things you whispered
The things you screamed
Then it all go up in flames
So many bombs drop
So many names called

Can't you see we've been living
In the world of pain from all this menace?
Can we end it all before?
This world is blown all to pieces
In a tug of war

I fall to my knees for you
And if you fall to your knees for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah
I fall to my knees, my knees for you
And if you fall to your knees for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah

Oh let's both make a mutual surrender
Oh let's both make a mutual surrender

Why don't we both surrender?
Here before we both get burned
With all the shots fired
And all the daggers thrown
There's got to be something
We can learn from all this menace
Can we learn from all this time?
Can we learn from all this business
With the gun and the knife

I raise my white flag for you
And if you raise your white flag for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah
I raise my white flag, my flag for you
And if you raise your white flag for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah
I fall to my knees, my knees for you
And if you fall to your knees for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah
I throw up my hands, my hands for you
And if your throw up your hands for me
What a wonderful world this could be, yeah

(FADE:)
I raise my white flag, my flag for you
