Lyrics for Imagine - Remastered 2010 by John Lennon:

Verse 1
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
I

Verse 2
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

Chorus
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

Verse 3
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

Chorus
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

Song Facts

The antithesis of a call to arms, John Lennon’s “Imagine” is one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring songs of all time.

Released in 1971, deep in the heart of the Vietnam War, on his solo album of the same name, “Imagine” asks listeners to envision a world of peace and unity. It peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and remains one of the most well-known and respected songs worldwide.

Now I understand what you have to do. Put your political message across with a little honey. This is what we do… to try to change the apathy of young people."

Despite the popularity of the song, some have criticized its message and Lennon’s sincerity in living out its message. The 1993 novel, The Giver, depicts a utopia similar to that in “Imagine” and then depicts that dream as tragically flawed, since what it takes to remove the bad from society in this manner also necessarily removes the equivalent wisdom, joy, and passion.
