Lyrics

Emerald City

Written By: Mary Jo Magar

Far is the vision of children at play
Imagining places far near away
Like Dorothy whose transport came out of a storm
Our own desert passage was also thus born

But slippers of magic
Witches with spells
Are needless to vision that in itself quells
The spirit of longing that children do know
Finds imagination wherever we go

Our Emerald City
Our Zone of Green
Appears as we see it
Not as we've seen
Beautiful bubble
Beautiful muss
Revealing the truth
Our homes are in us

A palace indeed this place still defines
With marble and gold in splendid designs
Its spirit of culture still haunts as incense
Embedding long fragrance in our defense

In spite of it all
The fences and wire
The checkpoints and berms
The lonely gunfire
Our boundaries are open
Our hearts remain free
To love as we choose
And choose what we see

Our Emerald City
Our Oz of frown
Our gemstone of faith
Our jewel in the crown
Beautiful bubble
Beautiful muss
Revealing the truth
Our homes are in us

Our Emerald City
Our Zone of Green
Appears as we see it
Not as we've seen
Beautiful bubble
Beautiful muss
Revealing the truth
Our homes are in us
