lyrics

Cliff Richardson / Will Kimbrough

I've been all over this great big world
I've done what I've done the best that I can
And I've seen men be cruel and unkind
To each other and this beautiful land
We spend a whole lot of time just fooling ourselves
Can't see the forest for the trees
If we really look deep, most everyone knows
That you got to be a pillar of peace

I've seen the world from 20,000 feet
And I've seen it from the bottom of the sea
I've thought a whole lot about what it means to be free
And I want to be a pillar of peace

If we look past our differences I know we will see
A whole lot of good all around
Nothing is forever except for the earth
So I keep both my feet on the ground

I've seen the world from 20,000 feet
And I've seen if from the bottom of the sea
I've thought a whole lot about what it means to be free
And I want to be a pillar of peace


A good man he don't have to be rich
And a poor man don't have to be bad
A wise man's knowledge ain't just in a degree
If he shares everything that he can
Things don't always go my way
And life ain’t all about me
But you know if we all work together
We'd all be pillars of peace

I've seen the world from 20,000 feet
And I've seen if from the bottom of the sea
I've thought a whole lot about what it means to be free
And I want to be a pillar of peace

I want to be a pillar of peace


Life is meant to be loved
Life is meant to be lived
Life ain’t made for regret
You know good friends and family and lessons we learn
I don't ever want to forget
No I ain't ever gonna forget

I've seen the world from 20,000 feet
And I've seen if from the bottom of the sea
I've thought a whole lot about what it means to be free
And I want to be a pillar of peace

I've seen the world from 20,000 feet
And I've seen if from the bottom of the sea
Thought a whole lot about what it means to be free
And I want to be a pillar of peace
Yeah I want to be a pillar of peace
Oh want to be a pillar of peace
And I’m gonna be a pillar of peace
