From a Distance

Bette Midler
From a distance the world looks blue and green
 And the snow-capped mountains white
 From a distance the ocean meets the stream
 And the eagle takes to flight

 From a distance there is harmony
 And it echoes through the land
 It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace
 It's the voice of every man

 From a distance we all have enough
 And no one is in need
 There are no guns, no bombs, no diseases
 No hungry mouths to feed

 From a distance we are instruments
 Marching in a common band
 Playing songs of home, playing songs of peace
 They're the songs of every man
 God is watching us, God is watching us
 God is watching us from a distance

 From a distance you look like my friend
 Even though we are at war
 From a distance I can't comprehend
 What all this war is for

 From a distance there is harmony
 And it echoes through the land
 It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves
 It's the heart of every man

 It's the hope of hopes, It's the love of loves
 It's the song of every man
