Dan Bern - Where is the Love?

Song Lyrics

In times of darkness
When night eclipses day
When the comforts of the tongue confuse
And lead your heart astray

Australian winter
South America fall
Not sure who I got out of bed and dressed
for today at all

Thought I'd reached the valley
I see so much further down
What I took for the morning light
Where the flames of the burning town
The Asian market
Panamanian despair
Sometimes I think I sing just to move the air

And where is the love?
Who knows what to do?
The men and the women carry us through
Across the river, to the promised land
Well I think they stand
I think they stand
I think they stand
with us tonight

The stars which once seemed so in reach
Fade out, grow dim, recede
And the love you make and the love you take
Ain't near the love you need

I practice breathing slowly
I practice breathing deep
Beauty comes to me in dreams
And then gets lost in sleep

The churches are padlocked
Magistrate's been drowned
I open up my skull to scream
But the radio's the only sound

And where is the love?
Who knows what to do?
The men and the women carry us through
Across the river, to the promised land
Well I think they stand
I think they stand
I think they stand
I feel they stand with us tonight

Well I think we stand
I think we stand
I think we stand
Here tonight
