Original Song – “Live As One”

Live As One is a similar song to Masquerade in that the singer’s commentary about our world poses an alternative view of how things could be, if the world would only embrace love as a way of life.  In ‘Live As One’ the singer’s one, “Who dreams of a world, that is safe and warm, Who dreams of a day, when all children born, Can grow up to be, who they want to be, And the world can live as one…In love.” In ‘Masquerade’ the singer sang, “Let’s build a world based on love, build a world we can be proud of, instead of a masquerade.”  In either case, the singer pleads for the world to open its eyes and wake up to the possibility of building a world focused first and foremost on loving one another – “If everyone, could only see, That love holds the key, to all we do, That love is the way, in all things we do…Then the world could live as one, In love.”

I recorded my original song “Live As One” as a demo on Set 14 in 1997, and it speaks to the world living together as one, “I look around, at the world I see, I don’t believe, it is only me, Who dreams of a world, that is safe and warm, Who dreams of a world, when all children born…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

  1. 1Corinthians: “13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” We certainly need to live together and be charitable unto one another. Even when we feel we have nothing, we will be shown by God to have more than someone we can help.

    When ALL of us, Christian or not start to follow this edict, we will live in a wonderful world indeed.

    Thank you Mark for another beautiful Song, I will have ‘Radio’ playing in my head all day & it will only play your songs. 🙂

  2. Jade,

    Thank you for your comments reminding us to always support, encourage and care for others! Charity starts in the heart and in the home, and when extended to everyone around us, it makes for living in a very beautiful world indeed! ♥

    Love in Christ,

    Mark
