Just give me the warm power of the sun
Give me the steady flow of a waterfall
Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay

Just give me the restless power of the wind
Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire
But please take all of your atomic poison power away

Everybody needs some power I'm told
To shield them from the darkness and the cold
Some may see a way to take control
When it's bought and sold

I know that lives are at stake
Yours and mine and our descendants in time
There's so much to gain, so much to lose
Everyone of us has to choose

Just give me the warm power of the sun
Give me the steady flow of a waterfall
Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay

Just give me the restless power of the wind
Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire
But please take all of your atomic poison power away

We are only now beginning to see
How delicate the balance of nature can be
The limits of her ways have been defined
And we've crossed that line

Some don't even care or know that we'll pay
But we have seen the face of death in our day
There's so little time to change our ways
If only we together can say

Just give me the warm power of the sun
Give me the steady flow of a waterfall
Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay

Just give me the restless power of the wind
Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire
But please take all of your atomic poison power
All of your atomic poison power
All of your atomic poison power away
