Earth From Outer Space
Michael Franti & Spearhead

If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
to all of the people and the streets that I once knew.
If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
no matter where I go I still come back to you.

If I could fly, fly, fly, so high, so high.
Higher than the clouds, even higher than the sky.
Zoom, zoom, and in the palm and world rollin by.
Would I see people in the cities and the villages and squares,
sellin in the market places, dancin everywhere?
Would I see ladies in the beauty parlor doin hair,
and teenage soldiers with their guns up in the air?
Would I see a hit list of the species that are gone,
or would I be a witness to the world droppin bombs?
Would I see the rain for amazon where the whole world sing one song?

If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
to all of the people and the streets that I once knew.
If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
no matter where I go I still come back to you, to you.
No matter where I go I still come back to you.

So let me hear you say (na na na na na),
woah oh (na na na na na).
And let me hear you say (na na na na na).
Break it down for me now.

Okay, I've been tryin, I've been tryin, I've been tryin, I've been tryin.
That's the truth without the lyin, I just do without the dyin.
I've been movin, I've been movin outer space so I've been losing everybody
that I love and they excuse is they just human.
And I've been learning how to breathe, learnin how to see.
Heart in the clouds, but don't know how to dream.
Evidently, your grass is green. I wish I had a personality.
If I was down on earth, I would sing..

If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
to all of the people and the streets that I once knew.
If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
no matter where I go I still come back to you, to you.
No matter where I go I still come back to you.

I like to see your planet, every boombox boomin.
I like to see your planet, every flower be bloomin.
I like to see your planet so the clouds refuelin.
I like to see your planet, every human stay human.
I don't know, but I know just one thing's for sure.
If I saw this, I'd still come back for more.

If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
to all of the people and the streets that I once knew.
If I could see earth from outer space,
through all of the stars to the human race,
no matter where I go I still come back to you, to you.
No matter where I go I still come back to you.

So let me hear you say (na na na na na),
still come back to you (na na na na na),
still come back to you.
No matter where I go (na na na na na),
still come back to you (na na na na na),
still come back to you (na na na na na),
still come back to you (na na na na na),
still come back to you.
