We are "Everyday People" - Old Song Rediscovered

So I was listening to some old songs from my youth in the car today and my ears heard something new, an old song whose lyrics touched me differently today!

The band The Rembrandts, best known for the theme song to "Friends", put out an album in 1990 which included a song, Everyday People. I hope you will all check it out because it sure did inspire me this morning and it brought tears to my eyes!

Lyrics:

Oh the times they are a changin'
I can feel it in the air
Oh can't you hear the bells of freedom
Ringin' everywhere?

And if you look across the ocean
You will see a shining light
And I know that come tomorrow
Everything will be alright

'Cause everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

And our numbers are many
But our hearts beat as one
We will fight to the finish
'Til the battle is won

For the right to be free
In a world without war
In a land where the giants
Can no longer ignore

The voice of our children
Who are cryin' revolution
Who inherit our pollution
If we don't change our ways

Oh, everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

Everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

Everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

Everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

Everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

Everyday people, are makin' a sound
They're gettin' together, and standin' their ground
You can build up the wall, but we'll tear it down
We are everyday people

Great Song

Always one of my favorites but haven't heard it for a long time.
Thanks for sharing.

I always loved the song just

I always loved the song just because I liked the Rembrandts but I never "heard" it, KWIM? I was too young to be in tune with anything. I'm just glad I heard it today! :)
