Amazing Air (Bonner/Gordon)


Amazing air, beautiful night
Softer than gallows, blacker than white
Your children sing, seeds have been sown
We’re all here together
So let’s all call it home

If we can guess that we’ve been blessed
With peace of mind and tenderness
Then even if I pass you in the night

With one breath of life could we still say
The world should set us free
And let our friends with evil hearts beware

Say a prayer once in a while
Pray for tomorrow, for somebody’s child

This gift of life that we possess
Was never made and never passed
So pass away the guns into the sea

Tear down the walls of fear and pride
That spill the world with blood inside
We’re are possessed with peaceful hearts
And peace, peace
(We could be happy but we won’t be)
