Spoken intro (from album version):
Now I want to tell you of a great love
Ohhhhhhhhhhh, it will light up
It will surely light up
If you just believe
(Single version begins...)
A love for each other will bring fighting to an end
Forgiving one another
Time after time doubt creeps in
But like the sun
Lights up the sky
With a message from above
Oh yeah, I find no other
Greater symbol of love
Yeah, don't cha hear the wind blowin'?
I tell you I ain't got no other
Oh yeah, yeah
Life is so short
Put the present time at hand
Oh yeah, and if you're young at heart
Rise up and take your stand
And to the man on whose shoulder
The world must depend
I pray for peace and love
Ooh-ooh! Can't cha feel it? Mm-hmm
I tell ya I ain't got no other, uh-huh
If a war 'tween our nations passed
Will the love 'tween our brothers and sisters last?
On and on and on and on and...
Don't cha hear the wind blowin'? Mm-hmm
Oh yeah, I tell ya I ain't got no other
Can't cha, can't cha, can't cha, can't cha, can't cha feel it?
Oh yeah, stoned, stoned, stoned, stoned
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Oh yeah, yeah, un huh, un huh
