Olivia Newton-John – Gaia lyrics

(Olivia Newton-John)
I am your mother--born of the sun
I gave you shelter--what have you done?
Your heart's in turmoil--my world's in pain
I need to turn you back home again
I am a woman--I am the rain
And like your father--I feel the betrayed
What you are doing--can be undone
You know the answers--tell everyone
Respect me
Respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
Whose fate's in jeopardy
Respect me
Respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
That's the part you fail to see
I am the forest--now I'm a tree
The air is dirty--I cannot breathe
My streams run empty--my tears run dry
My children call me--don't let us die
Respect me
Respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
Whose fate's in jeopardy
Respect me
Respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
That's the part you fail to see
I love my children and I've been your home
But I'll survive this--if I'm alone
I'm survivor--but you will be gone
Let's start a new world--from this day on
Respect me
Respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
Whose fate's in jeopardy
Respect me
Respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
That's the part you fail to see
For it is you not me
That's the part you fail to see
Oh respect me
Oh respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
That's the part you fail to see
