I heard this inspirational song, John Denver’s It’s About Time, for the first time when I attended the Awakening Seminar which is a 2.5 Days Seminar held in Bristol Business School, Singapore, in September 2010.
The Awakening Seminar is a fun-filled seminar to discover your true potential and true self. I learnt a lot of life, financial and business skills which were not taught in schools. If you are interested to take part in this awesome seminar, do drop me an email. 🙂 I think there is one more coming up next year.
Ok, back to the song… The lyrics have a very deep meaning which is very hard for me to explain. However, my one take-away from this song is that all of us should stay united as one regardless of your background, religion and race in order to have peace and harmony in the world.
This thought was obtained from the following line: “It’s about time we start to face it, we can’t make it here all alone”. I have included a video clip of the song obtained from Youtube for your convenience. You can find the lyrics below the clip.
Listen to it and share with me your thoughts below. 🙂
John Denver – It’s About Time Lyrics
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 and 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, that little one is mine.
It’s about time we begin it, 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 it, the family and 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.
