      = Lyrics to a song = 

There was a man,
      a gentle man –
You are the world,
           said he.

Look at yourself,
           and see.

And as he spoke,
           I heard him say –

A thousand yesterdays
Have bound you 
to your ways.

                                                                                CHORUS:
Watch an eagle                                    
       soaring through the sky;        

See it fly and never leave a mark …     
Freedom is the way it flies.                   
Listen to the whisper in the wind;             
Hear the song that love will sing again …
Freedom is the joy it feels – to live again.

---------------------------------------------------------

He questioned why, one does not end 
So many years – of pain,                    
Where sorrow still remains.                


And as I looked within his eyes 
Compassion spoke, so kind –   
It gently touched my mind.      

Finale:
Watch an eagle soaring through the sky;
See it fly and never leave a mark …
Freedom is the way it flies.
