Song features on my album 'You raise me up'


Take white roses in your hands

And call each petal peace

There's been enough innocent  pain

Let the warring cease

There are those who lust for power

There are those who interfere

They have to take in order to make an empire of fear

All we need is an armful of petals

At the top of the highest mountain

And let them fly into the sky

All over the world X 2

If we all could recognise the need for compromise

Perhaps we could live and grow to forgive when conflicts arise

If only we could learn that force at every turn

Simply helps fire avenging desire and all our bridges burn
