peace

The following lyrics are from the Bette Midler song
From a Distance.
Lyrics written by Julie Gold.

The lyrics are, I feel, particularly relevant during time of war.

peace

From a distance the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight

From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace
It's the voice of every man

From a distance we all have enough
And no-one is in need
There are no bombs no guns no disease
No hungry mouths to feed

From a distance we are all instruments
Marching in a common band
Playing songs of hope, songs of peace
They're the songs of every man

God is watching us, God is watching us
God is watching us, from a distance
From a distance you look like my friend
Even though we are at war
From a distance we can't comprehend
What all this war is for

From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of love
It's the heart of every man
It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of love
It's the heart of every man
