It's hokey, it's trite, it can make my inner cynic scream bloody murder. But mostly I like it. (In fact, it's a good guage of whether I'm depressed or not...)

<b>Love is Everywhere</b>
by John Denver

chorus:
Love is everywhere, I see it
You are all that you can be, go on and be it
Life is perfect, I believe it
Come and play the game with me

Open yourself to the first celebration
Open yourself to the joy and pain
Life is the fruit of your own creation
Every new birth is a soul regained

Chorus

Drinking my life from a silver fountain
Sweet water running to the cold salt sea
Old man moon* on a white top mountain
Sound of the wind singing dreams for me

Chorus

Follow your heart like a flying stallion
Race with the sun to the edge of night
Form your truth like a gold medallion
Dance in the circle of the love and the light

Chorus
(repeat and fade)


*this is not the only song where Denver refers to the moon as masculine.. what gives with bucking the dominant paradigm? :::grinning but also a semi-serious question:::
