lyrics

To walk across the desert to the water we seek
We’re gonna need a lot of love
To reach the other side of the ocean so wide and so deep
We gotta fly like the turtledove
Oh Eh Oh Ay, fly like the turtledove

To broker a peace between the wolf and the sheep
We’re gonna need a lot of love
If gonna we wriggle free from the grip of the raven’s beak
We gonna cry like the turtledove
Oh Eh Oh Ay, cry like the turtledove

To keep on a fighting when we're facing defeat
We’re gonna need a lot of love
Before we begin we gotta wake the sleepy ones from their sleep
We gotta coo like the turtledove
Oh Eh Oh Ay, coo like the turtledove

To bring in all the people who are living apart
We’re gonna need a lot of love
Keep a candle burning for the ones who are lost in the dark
We gotta sing like the turtledove
Oh Eh Oh Ay, sing like the turtledove

To keep on a fighting when we’re facing defeat
We gotta wake the sleepy ones from there sleep
To bring in all the people who are living apart
We gotta keep a candle for the ones who are lost in the dark
