Unita: Listen to Music

The Dove's Cry

(Unita)
Unita - Vocals, lyrics, music. Herb Ernst - Music, keyboards. Joseph Akins - Keyboards and ethereal textures

Does anybody know how to get this song to Susan Boyle? Yes, it needs to be hers.

I wrote these lyrics about a year before the music. Again, I asked for Herb's assistance on this one and as always, his brilliance as a composer and keyboardist comes through in this music. With Joseph's guidance and beautiful additions on keyboards, I feel we produced together a magnificent piece of music. I am proud to include this song of hope and peace for mankind, my one "statement" song, on the album.

The Dove’s Cry

Too many needless tears have fallen in this life
Too many reasons to give in to pain and strife
We have it in ourselves to rise above it all
The human spirit lives to heed a higher call
May we always find the truth, may we know the meaning why
And may the heart remember when we hear the dove’s cry
A song of hope and peace can be heard across the land
To all who hear it’s voice, the world is in our hands
We must hold on to love for our sisters and our brothers
And listen to the prayers of our fathers and our mothers
May we always find the answer in tomorrow’s newborn sky
May our children still remember when we hear the dove’s cry

May we always find the truth, may we know the meaning why
And may the heart remember…    
                        When we hear the dove’s cry
