Lyrics

Seeds of Unity

Written By: Nate Stevens

So much war and hatred all around the globe
Well there’s people starving and fighting for life
Said the kids are crying feeling so much strife
Well there’s guns and bombs and mines and missiles
Blowing apart all our brothers and sisters
When all they’re trying to do is live their life

So tell me why cant we learn to love each other
It’s so easy take a look around and give some love out to your brothers and your sisters yeah
Cause we’re all in this world together
And we’re all sick and tired of the stormy weather
So put your guns and your missiles down
And then start pulling all those land mines up out of the ground
And then plant some seeds of unity and watch them grow

See the time is coming and it wont be long when every man woman child they will start to sing their songs
Of victory of unity of freedom and of peace said they’ll sing it loud and louder till the fighting has to cease
And the war, the hatred, the anger and the doubt
Will turn into happiness that’s what life is all about
Singing songs of celebration get together with jubilation
Playing it loud across the nation spreading it far on all the stations
That the new world is here, and it wont go away
Cause the TRUTH is shining brighter in our hearts each day
No more time for quarrels, no more fuss and fight
We’re all bound for glory cause we’re walking in the light

The Heart Knows

Written By: Nate Stevens

Deep down inside my very soul
I got nothing to hide, I got nothing to show
In that still empty place I will meet you someday
When there’s nothing to hold and there’s no cross to bear
Then come take my hand together let’s go
Cause I’ve never had time to waste on battles that cant ever be won
And I know when it ends well its only begun

Yeah the heart knows just how to make it through
Just keep on breathing heart beating believing
There’s a holy place inside of you
And if you ever find yourself doubting in goodness and light
Just take a deep breathe, feel your heartbeat and know it’s alright

We all have questions about what’s wrong and what’s right
They go on and on in our minds and sometimes keep us up all the night
But I know that the heart always knows even when the picture doesn’t show you
That it’s all just fine in the end and that constant beat of our heart is the one and only best friend

Yeah the heart knows just how to make it through
Just keep on breathing heart beating believing
There’s a holy place inside of you
And if you ever find yourself doubting in goodness and light
Just take a deep breathe, feel your heartbeat and know it’s alright

Yeah I know sometimes it stings and bleeds and races so fast when you’re losing a friend
But just keep on believing and hoping and dreaming and loving then open your eyes don’t pretend
Because all of the heartbeats around you can feel you and see you and touch you and love you
And just when you think that your heart is out of beats
You wake up and feel the blood flowing through your veins it’s a brand new day

Yeah the heart knows just how to make it through
Just keep on breathing heart beating believing
There’s a holy place inside of you
And if you ever find yourself doubting in goodness and light
Just take a deep breathe, feel your heartbeat and know it’s alright

Make Your Light Shine

Written By: Nate Stevens

People wont you hear me now, it’s time it’s time to shine
When it seems like the night is all around
And the sunshine wont ever return
You can find the power in each and every one of you
To make this our world a bit more beautiful

You gotta get up, stand up, and make your light shine
You gotta get up, stand up, and make your light shine

Sometimes it’s hard to see through another day
But always remember everybody please remember
That the sunshine is on it’s way
And when it gets too hard to make it all by yourself
Well I’ll always be there when you fall down reach your hand out to my baby I’ll help you stand
I’ll do my best, each and every day
To show you that love little darling love everybody love little children love is the only way

You gotta get up, stand up, and make your light shine
You gotta get up, stand up, and make your light shine
You gotta get up, stand up, and make your light shine
You gotta get up, stand up, and make your light shine

Let it shine, shine shine
Let it shine, shine, shine

Well I was sinking down a hole, I was falling falling slow
Then you came along and you helped me sing my song
