Stand by...
Stand by...

We thought our lives were meant to last
We thought bad dreams were in the past
We thought forever was eternity

And if we
We try together we can climb
The highest mountains any time
We'll live forever and eternally

Cause I can see stars taking cover
Stand by
I can see birds start to hover
Stand by
Don't forget nature's our mother
Stand by
Raised by the sand, stand, stand

I can see water is breaking
Stand by
I can see people forsaking
Stand by
Don't forget nature is shaking
Stand by
Raised by the sand, stand, stand

The world is moving towards the end
The higher powers won't defend
Our lonely planet, a mark in history
God save me
The trees that swung in summer sun,
The children played their games for fun
I thought they'd live to see eternity

Cause I can see stars taking cover
Stand by
I can see birds start to hover
Stand by
Don't forget nature's our mother
Stand by
Raised by the sand, stand, stand

I can see water is breaking
Stand by
I can see people forsaking
Stand by
Don't forget nature is shaking
Stand by
Raised by the sand, sand, stand!

We can do anything, anytime
Let's heal the wounds now

Cause I can see stars taking cover
Stand by
I can see birds start to hover
(I can see birds)
Stand by
Don't forget nature's our mother
(Nature's our mother)
Stand by
Raised by the sand, stand, stand
Oh no nooo!

I can see water is breaking
(Water is breaking, hey man! )
Stand by
I can see people forsaking
(People forsaking)
Stand by
Don't forget nature is shaking
Stand by
Raised by the sand, stand, stand
