love is but a song we sing and fears the way we die
you can make the mountains ring or make the angels cry
tho' the bird is on the wing and you may not know why

c'mon people now smile on your brother
ev'ry body get together,try to love one another right now

some will come and some will go and we will surely pass
when the one that left us here returns for us at last
we are but a moments sunlight fading in the grass


if you hear the song i sing you will understand
you hold the key to love and fear in your trembling hand
just one key unlocks them both it's there at your command
