From a Distance
Sung by Bette Midler,
Original Text and Music, Julie Gold,
Atlantic Records, 1990

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 hope, playing songs of peace,
They're the songs of every man.

From a distance, you look like my friend

Even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
What all this fighting 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.
