What are the open plans but land to Rome and cultivate
risk and ? ... trade and shared too give and to take
to respect the indian way.
I will no longer cry for what is past is gone
like a memory that floats in the air
the song of an eagle feather
climbing in the wind
on a hot summer day
on a hot summer day

..... they where crying sadly
fist ready for the blown
seen turbilence skies above me
butterflies in the snow
saw a war in a mask and a costume
in a jungle of leaders to blame
seen power in de hands of the wrong men
will it always be just the same?
seen boys crossed who lived the borders risk a life to wash a dich
seen money disguised as the answer
is that your only wish?
saw mothers smile so hopefull
seen a man who treasures life,
as a woman not able to choose
from a strength that I need to survive

The truth nothing but the truth
watch you coming today watch you coming today
the things you say when you give and you take when you take
and you take and you take
the truth nothing but the truth
in the name of nature
the choises we make
is it only me is it only you
are we only living for today?
Maybe today, will be my day
before it's over
I'll make a change
Maybe today, will be my day
before it's over
I'll have my saint.

Na nana nananananana na nana nanananana

may the walls on the road be witness
of the needs of your ticking heart
the words that you loved be spoken
at your table and honeymoon part
may your long line of family members
be proud of who you've become
may your hands and your soul remind you
every day that you are around.
may the house that is always cleaned
be the home to the ones in need
may the dirt on the souls of your boots
make a track of the good will you leave
may the words that where used to defide
float away far away out of sight
in the mountain we still must climb
be the one we will climb to unite.

The truth nothing but the truth
watch you coming today watch you coming today
the things you say when you give and you take when you take
and you take and you take
the truth nothing but the truth
in the name of nature
the choises we make
is it only me is it only you
are we only living for today?
Maybe today, will be my day
before it's over
I'll make a change
Maybe today, will be my day
before it's over
I'll have my saint.
