Looking out my window
Peace in the valley just don't come
Though I know that man's my brother
And that I'm the selfish one

The hour is getting later
It's time we had begun
Knowing something's one thing
But the race must still be run

Take care of little jealousies
And talk that kills for fun
And hold your heart in readiness
It's so easy to come undone

But I think I saw a brand new light
Coming over the horizon
Brighter than any other
And it says all men are brothers under the skin
Brothers under the skin

Looking out my window
Peace in the valley just don't come
Though I know that she's my sister
And that I'm the selfish one

And I look at all the people
And I love the ones I can
And I wonder if the dream will be
Or be turned into sand

Still I think I saw a brand new light
Coming over the horizon
Brighter than any other
And it says all men are brothers, all women are sisters, we're all related
Under the skin
Together under the skin

Peace in the valley just don't come
Peace in the valley just don't come
Peace in the valley
Peace in the valley's got to come
It just might come if we believe it'll come
If we're together
'Cause we're together
Under the skin
Peace in the valley
Peace in the valley just might come
Peace in the valley's got to come
