Colours of the wind

Vanessa Williams - Colours of the wind

 

Think you own whatever land U land on

Earth is just a dead thing U can claim

But I know ev'ry rock and tree and creature

Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people

Are the people who look and think like you

But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger

You'll learn things U never knew (U never knew...)

 

Ref.:

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

Or asked the grinning bobcat Y he grinned

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains

Can you paint with all the Colours of the Wind

Can you paint with all the Colours of the Wind

 

Come run the hidden pine trail of the forest

Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth

Come roll in all the riches all around you

And for once never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers

The heron and the otter are my friends

And we are all connected to each other

 

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

Or asked the grinning bobcat Y he grinned

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains

Can you paint with all the Colours of the Wind

Can you paint with all the Colours of the Wind

 

In a circle in a hoop that never ends

How high does the sycamore grow

But if U cut it down then U'll never know

 

An you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For wether we are white or copper skinned

We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains

Need to paint with all the Colours of the Wind

 

You can own the earth and still

All U'll own is earth until

U can paint with all the Colours of the Wind
