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 that 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 that 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


John and Yoko stayed in the house we own for few weeks. The house is very special for a variety of reasons, and the legacy of John's presence makes it even more so. This song is so inspiration, and I wish more people would live by its meaning.
"Ono indicated that the lyrical content of "Imagine" was "just what John believed — that we are all one country, one world, one people. He wanted to get that idea out."

Very interesting about your house. In looking at his photo, I wonder how he would look like today, what he would be doing.

How amazing about your house. I echo Simona in wondering what John Lennon would be like today and the difference he would have made to the world.

Simona and Marcellina, I wonder whether he would have been the receiver of the Nobel prize for peace, had he not been assassinated. He probably would have kept fighting for peace, or that is what I hope.

Peace!
