We were talking – about the space between us all
And the people – who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion.
Never glimpse the truth – then it’s far too late –
When they pass away.
We were talking – about the love we all could share –
When we find it to try our best to hold it there –
With our love, with our love – we could save the world –
If they only knew.
Try to realize it’s all within yourself no – one else
can make you change,
And to see you’re really only very small,
and life flows on within you and without you.
We were talking – about the love that’s gone so cold
And the people, who gain the world and lose their soul –
They don’t know – they can’t see –
Are you one of them?
When you’ve seen beyond yourselves – then you
may find, peace of mind, is waiting there –
And the time will come when you see
we’re all one, and life flows on
within you and without you.
