I want to hear the heartbeat pushing life into the earth
I want to see the prism that gives all people worth
A chance to taste the bread and eat another meal
With people who are talking and sharing something real

I want to know the stories that lay behind the eyes
of people everywhere that share the earth and skies

I heard about a teacher who descended from the steep
And looked upon a city and then began to weep
For those who do not know the things that make for peace
Could bring a sad destruction if hate will never cease

I want to know the stories that lay behind the eyes
of people everywhere that share the earth and skies

I want to find a table and a place for drink and bread
With people telling stories, I want to hear what’s said
And then, I want to know, I want to understand
So many types of people with many different hands

I want to know the stories that lay behind the eyes
of people everywhere that share the earth and skies
