It’s All Right Here

When I was young, oh no, I never thought twice
About the beauty of the mother
I’ve done my share of walking on her pretty face
I took for granted what she offered.

And then one day I saw a photograph of Mars
I saw a dead and barren planet
And from that photograph I’ve come to realize
That everything we really need is here.

You know it’s all right here, everything is here
Oh now, everything we really need is here.

I’ve read of men who travel far within themselves
They seek the light for their direction
They spend their whole lives searching for that inner space
To bring them closer to perfection.

Now we may choose to journey high among the stars
Or search within for our Creator
But from our travels we will come to realize
That everything we really need is here.

You know it’s all right here, everything is here
Oh, everything we really need is here.

Yes, it’s all right here, everything is here
Oh now, everything we really need is here
Mmm, it’s all right.

I’ve seen the forest where the big pines touch the sky
I’ve heard the sound of wildlife calling
I taste the sweetness from the fruit right on the trees
I love the fragrance of her blossoms.

And as I touch my foot upon this fertile soil
I feel the source of our creation
Upon this planet I have come to realize
Oh, that everything we really need is here.

You know it’s all right here, everything is here
Oh now, everything we really need is here
Yes, it’s all right here, everything is here
Oh now, everything we really need is here.

It’s all right, gonna be all right, it’s all right here.
