Lyrics

Verse 1

So many of us look to our own needs
A heart can harden
A rose blooms in the thickest bed of weeds
To make a garden
With every smile on earth, love plants its seeds
Time to begin it
Each person on this planet someday pleads
For one more minute

Chorus
It’s time to change our attitude
To learn how to forgive
Turn each complaint to gratitude
And let the Spirit live
Forget the things that money buys
Forget the latest fashion
It’s time to look into each other’s eyes
And feel compassion
It’s time to look into each other’s eyes
And feel compassion

Verse 2

The people in your life who criticize
With words that hurt you
The so-called friend who doesn’t hear your cries
When dreams desert you
The person in this world you most despise
A smile might save him
Once Gandhi looked into his killer’s eyes
And he forgave him
