Songtekst

See it clear
Sounds of emotion
Spreading all over the world
Bringing peace for a moment
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done

Hold it there
Try to imagine
Scenes of heaven in motion
Singing songs of devotion
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done

Twice as clear
Bringers of wisdom
Simply trying to touch
And to bring you the truth
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done
Yeah, yeah

Think of a season
So easy to reach
Thoughts of a blue world
Where innocence leads you
To a miraculous high
When someone you remember
Helps by telling you why (Helps by telling you why)

The pilot is worship
Dig deep within
Not so easily seen
Or amazingly witnessed
To bring you the truth
It's already said and done
Yeah, yeah

Hold it there
You can imagine
All of heaven in motion
Special songs of devotion
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done
Yeah, yeah

Think of a season
So easy to reach
Thoughts of a blue world
Where innocence leads you
To a miraculous high
When someone you remember
Helps by telling you why (Helps by telling you why)

The pilot is worship
Dig deep within
Not so specially seen
Or amazingly witnessed
To bring you the truth
It's already said and done
Already said and done
Already said and done
It's already said and done

Seeing it clear
Sounds of emotion
Spreading all over the world
Bringing peace for a moment
Say it's all possible
It's already said and done
It's already said and done
It's already said and done
