Story

Story behind the song:

This is one of my oldest songs yet the lyrics and message of the song still seem very true and relevant today.This song was written from a place of sadness about all the senseless killing in the world and a plea to the leaders of the world to seek out beauty and love in their lives instead of greed, power, control and profit.  It's my own feeble attempt to get people to stop and realize that we all only have a small amount of time on this rock and to spend it in ways that will breed kindness, selflessness and harmony with the world around us.  Good grief!  I sound like a hippie!  :)  

Lyrics

A wish on a star

a prayer on a pillow

by light of the moon

the song of a sparrow rings

all the white doves are falling

our weapons are words

our peace is a lie

as long as the distance

between you and I is far

all the white doves are falling

oh can you hear their song

heaven knows where we are going

so take some time and watch the

roses slowly fade then disappear

while you’re still here

‘cause we all disappear

a lesson in history

a thought for us all

our heartful intentions

lost in the fall

I wish on the stars

these tears on my pillow

are there to remind me

to pray for your soul

all the white doves are falling

oh can you hear their song

heaven knows we’re runnin’ on empty

so take my hand let’s find some beauty

in this place while we’re still here

while we’re still here

‘cause we all disappear
