Bridges Not Walls (M. Brooks)

I got the idea for this song in 2016, when the Pope said that Donald Trump wasn't a Christian. He said Christians build bridges not walls. I love the sentiment.

I like open arms open minds, to be open to new ideas
Be open to what's around me with open eyes and open ears
I'm open to suggestions, whether great or small
And I want to help that happen build bridges not walls

Build bridges not walls, build bridges not walls
I want to remove the barriers
I want to see them fall
Build bridges not wall

Build friendships, build trust, build faith in one another
Build confidence build hope, build peace with one another
Build a dream together, all for one and one for all
Try to build a better future, build bridges not walls


I'm not afraid to listen, I'm not afraid to see
I'm not afraid of people, just 'cause they don't look like me
I'm not afraid of my neighbours or to answer their call
And make friends not enemies, build bridges not walls
