Phil Collins Great Spirits

When the earth was young

And the air was sweet

And the mountains kissed the sky

In the far beyond, with its many paths

Man and nature lived side by side

The pretty wisdom does not come without learning

And the vision not wholly without our eyes

We can think that we see

Truly see you’re around us

But when we look

Do we see with open minds?

Great Spirits of all who lived before

Take our hands and lead us

Fill our hearts and souls with all you know

The key to understanding

Is to see the other sides

Find a way to help us

See from outside

Truly see from outside

Teach our children to look deeper than the surface

See the world through another’s eyes

For to be blind me on yourself

Is to look but not see it

Knowing much is enough to be wise

To see the wonder

In all we’ve been given

In a world that’s not always as it seems

On the part that we choose

Turn every corner

Follow on for another begins

Great Spirits of all who lived before

Take our hands and lead us

Fill our hearts and souls

With all you know

Key to understanding

Is to see the other sides

Find a way to help us

See from outside

Truly see from outside

Great Spirits of all who lived before

Take our hands and lead us

Fill our hearts and souls

With all you know

Key to understanding

Is to see the other sides

Find a way to help us

See from outside

Truly see from outside

See from outside
