  • Lyrics
  • Walking down the street of dreams, eating from the fruits of life
    Tripping now on the smallest things
    Trying to reach the light, trying to reach the light
    Pick the key up off the floor, put the key into the lock

    Turn the lock, open up the door
    Look at all you've got, look at all you've got
    All the sinners are saints, all you creatures of faith
    Don't need to be afraid
    If you know what I mean let me hear you say

    [Chorus]
    Peace be upon us, peace be upon us
    Be upon us all, oh
    Peace be upon us, peace be upon us
    Be upon us all, oh
    Yeah

    The world will turn even when we're gone
    The earth will host many souls to come
    Who will write the history?
    Tales of wise men, villains, and innocent ones
    All you shepherds and sheep, when you wake from your sleep
    It will be a new day
    If you know what I mean let me hear you say

    [Chorus: x 2]Writer/s: BILL BOTTRELL, SHERYL CROW, MIKE ELIZONDO, JEFFREY TROTT
