Lyrics

The road to peace is never paved with gold
Can be hard to grasp, sometimes hard to hold
We reach so high forsaking the little things
Like the joy the love, the Dove Of Peace it brings

We cage it in rather than let it loose
Restraining the rights of so many to choose
We close our eyes now we fail to see
To change the world, the Dove of Peace must be free

So do not hinder the Dove Of Peace
No don't ever stand in its way
Let it spread its wings, let it fly away
Let it come and go, come what may

We pursue dreams way beyond our reach
Making promises we don't practise what we preach
In a war torn world where so many can't cope
They need real love, the Dove Of Peace and hope

So do not hinder the Dove Of Peace
No don't ever stand in its way
Let it spread its wings, let it fly away
Let it come and go, come what may

We need to nurture the Dove Of Peace
Feed it with love, watch it grow
Make a stand someday war will cease
We need to love and let it flow

So do not hinder the Dove Of Peace
No don't ever stand in its way
Let it spread its wings, let it fly away
Let it come and go, come what may
