If Everyone Cared

From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confuse stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

CHORUS: Singing Amen I, I'm alive
Singing Amen I, I'm alive
If everyone cared, and nobody cried
If everyone loved, and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

CHORUS: I'm singing Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
And in the air, the fire flies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world that they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

CHORUS: Singing Amen I, I'm alive I'm alive Singing Amen I, I'm alive

If everyone cared, and nobody cried
If everyone loved, and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
If everyone cared, and nobody cried
If everyone loved, and nobody lied
If everyone shared, and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

As we lie beneath the stars, we realize how small we are
If they could love, like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
If everyone cared, and nobody cried
If everyone loved, and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

CHORUS: Singing Amen I, I'm alive
Singing Amen I, I'm alive
We'd see the day
We'd see the day when nobody died
We'd see the day
We'd see the day when nobody died
We'd see the day when nobody died









songwriter: Chad Kroeger and Nickelback

performed by: Nickelback

date released: 2005 by Nickelback

The images on the video speak for themselves. Even at lower levels, a "what were you doing when...." activity can evoke a lot of discussion.

Hanna, Alberta, is the hometown of the grunge-rock band, Nickelback. The band members are Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair. The name, "Nickelback" originated in a Starbucks job which Mike Kroeger had. When he gave change to customers, he said, "Here's your nickel back." Well, Mike has come a long way from working at Starbucks!

In December, 2009, Nickelback was named group of the decade by prestigious Billboard Magazine. The magazine praised the band by saying, "The bulletproof Nickelback provides affordable fun
that promises good returns in hard time." In 2001, Nickelback's "How You Remind Me" soared to Number One on U.S. record charts.

Nickelback's cover of "Saturday Night" can be heard as the opening tease of Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts. Although Elton John and Bernie Taupin wrote the lyrics to describe the raucous atmosphere in a local pub, the lyrics are certainly applicable to NHL hockey games where fights are common. The line, "get about as oiled as a diesel train" is British slang for a lively night on the town.

Now Nickelback is based in Vancouver, Canada.
