Imagine

(1971)



Paroles : John Lennon (1940-1980).
Musique : John Lennon.

"Imagine" est l'oeuvre personnelle la plus célèbre de John Lennon dans laquelle l'ex-membre des Beatles exprime, sous la forme d'une magnifique ballade, son engagement pour la paix et la fraternité dans le monde.


Imagine

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
