Love is but a song we sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Some may come and some may go
He will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand, listen
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

I said come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now
Right now
Right now

all religion summed up into one line:

We are but a moment's sunlight, fading in the grass.

Maybe without the Jesus reference. Still a great song, though.

 
Really?  I always thought that reference was to Pleiadian precursors!

I hadn't considered that (probably because I'd never heard of the Pleadeans until now). If that was the case, wouldn't it be "When the ones that left us here return for us at last"? {#Smile}

Really takes me back this. I was 18 and having the time of my life. Oh where did the time go!

In 1968 when this song came out I was just a little kid, about 7 or 8.  My brother joined the army and went away forever.  It just came over me like a wave, watching him walk out the door in his uniform on his way to Vietnam.  I was just a little kid.

I hope this song will last forever.  

Wonderful groove, wonderful sentiment.

Something that has bothered me since I first saw this album art:

What is that "pile of red stuff" in the foreground of the album cover? Is it a pile of natural-casing hot dogs? What is it supposed to represent?
Nice PSD from u2
Greatest peace song ever.

I like this song, but I'm not sure if there's any song I'd want to hear every day for the next four years...well, except maybe "Java" by Al Hirt.

No Sir.  Now is not a time to blindly follow this snake oil salesman.  It is a time for hyper-vigilance and action to stop him and his ugly policies. 

 
That too...
