Turn the World Around

Album: Turn the World Around (1977)
  • We come from the fire, living in the fire
    Go back to the fire, turn the world around
    We come from the fire, living in the fire
    Go back to the fire, turn the world around

    We come from the water, living in the water
    Go back to the water, turn the world around
    We come from the water, living in the water
    Go back to the water, turn the world around

    We come from the water, living in the water
    Go back to the water, turn the world around
    We come from the water, living in the water
    Go back to the water, turn the world around

    We come from the mountain, living on the mountain
    Go back to the mountain, turn the world around
    We come from the mountain, living on the mountain
    Go back to the mountain, turn the world around

    We come from the mountain, living on the mountain
    Go back to the mountain, turn the world around
    We come from the mountain, living on the mountain
    Go back to the mountain, turn the world around

    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life
    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life
    Oh, oh, so is Abatiwaha
    Ah, so is life

    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life
    Oh, oh, so is Abatiwaha
    Ah, ha, so is life

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Water make the river, river wash the mountain
    Fire make the sunlight, turn the world around
    Heart is of the river, body is the mountain
    Spirit is the sunlight, turn the world around

    We are of the spirit, truly of the spirit
    Only can the spirit turn the world around
    We are of the spirit, truly of the spirit
    Only can the spirit turn the world around

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Do you know who I am?
    Do I know who you are?
    See, we one another clearly
    Do we know who we are?

    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life
    Oh, oh, so is Abatiwaha
    Ah, so is life

    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life
    Oh, oh, so is Abatiwaha
    Ah, so is life

    Oh, oh, so is life
    Ah, ha, so is life
    Oh, oh, so is Abatiwaha
    Ah, ha, so is life
