Circle at the Heart – Joanne Rand, 9/11/01

Am Am
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
And inside a family
Am Am
Man and woman and baby
G G
A family, you and me
Am Am
And on one side of the earth is a bomb
G G
And on the other is a cross.
Am Am
War and peace circling around
G G
Hold the center where the heart is found.

Am Am
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
And inside a family
Am Am
Man and woman and baby
G G
Grandmother, Grandfather
Am Am
And on one side of the earth is the night
G G
And on the other is the day.
Am Am
Day and night one and the same
G G
Hold the center in the family name.

Am Am
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
And inside a family
Am Am
Man and woman and baby
G G
Grandmother, Grandfather
Am Am
And on one side of the earth is desire
G G
And on the other is dread.
Am Am
Love and fear one and the same
G G
Hold the center in the family name.
Am Am
Day and night one and the same
G G
Hold the center in the family name.
Am Am
War and peace circling around
G G
Hold the center where the heart is found.

A Maj. A Maj.
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
We pray for compassion.
A Maj. A Maj.
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
We pray for release.
A Maj. A Maj.
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
We pray for vision.
A Maj. A Maj.
There’s a circle at the heart of the earth
G G
We pray for Peace.
G G
We pray for Peace.
