What's that sound I hear coming from the ground
That' going 'round and 'round I can feel it pull me down
On my knees tears of joy have come to me
As the flower sounds made it plain to see

That this world is a perfect place to live
There is a warm soft wind blowing 'round me just to give
All the leaves such a haunting melody
That forever will be a part of me

Just like a ship out on the sea
Floating alone no one around me or beyond me
The sun is on me

Then suddenly I felt a kiss out of the breeze
That did caress me and possess me
Oh it astounds me

All around there's a feeling in the air
That with the grace of time we'll be getting closer there
But day by day I can see they walk away
And I wonder, Lord will they ever know

That this world is a perfect place to live?
Just look into your heart, find the love that's there to give
Realize that the secret is to share
