There’s a full moon over India and Gandhi lives again Who’s to say you have to lose for someone else to win In the eyes of all the people the look is much the same For the first is just the last one when you play a deadly game
It’s about time we realize it we’re all in this together It’s about time we find out it’s all of us or none It’s about time we recognize it these changes in the weather It’s about time, it’s about changes and it’s about time
There’s a light in the Vatican window for all the world to see And a voice cries in the wilderness and sometimes he speaks for me I suppose I love him most of all when he kneels to kiss the land With his lips upon our Mother’s breast he makes his strongest stand
It’s about time we start to see it the Earth is our only home It’s about time we start to face it we can’t make it here all alone It’s about time we start to listen to the voices in the wind It’s about time, it’s about changes and it’s about time
There’s a man who is my brother, I just don’t know his name But I know his home and family because I know we feel the same And it hurts me when he’s hungry and when his children cry I too am a father and that little one is mine
It’s about time we begin to turn the world around It’s about time we start to make it the dream we’ve always known It’s about time we start to live the family of man It’s about time, it’s about changes and it’s about time It’s about peace and it’s about plenty and it’s about time It’s about you and me together and it’s about time
Words by John Denver, music by John Denver and Glen D Hardin
