To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

One to [Incomprehensible], one to sun
One to the mornin', one to the one
One to air and the freshness we breathe in
One to the force of the change in the seasons

One to the mother from which all the things come
One to the daughters and one to the sons
One to the father who helps us believe that
Nothing's ever gonna harm you see 'em

One to the soldier who walks city streets
One to the soldier who fights over seasons
One to the man who gets down on his knees and
Prays Oh, God send protection, peace and

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

One to the woman, one to the man
One to the culture from the time when it began
One to destruction, one to birth
One to the people who used fight for the earth

One to the people who suffer for their needs
And one to the rebels who'll rock in to their beats
And one to the healer who fights our disease
And one to the lorax who speaks for the trees

'Cause no amount of money and no amount of man
Can bring back to life what's gone when it's gone
And one to the people who rise with the sun
And one to the people who sleep when it's down, oh

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

'Cause all things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around
'Cause all things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around

Life is too short to make just one decision
Music, true love is just one station
Love is too big for just one nation
And God is too big for just one religion

One to the practise for bein' in the flow
And to the tears of the fingers we let goin'
One to the moment we live in right now
And one to the east, west, north and south

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

To the east to the west
To the north and south
To the east to the west
One love people never gonna stop

Sing, all things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around
All things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around

All things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around
All things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around

All things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around
All things seem upside down
The whole wide world keeps turnin' around
