Featured: Green Earth – Climate Change song lyrics by Michel Montecrossa

Today I want to repost an extended version of one of the most read posts on this blog: the song lyrics of Michel Montecrossa‘s climate change hit-song ‘Green Earth’

The song has partly been included in Michel Montecrossa’s inspiring interview for his ‘Peace & Climate Concert Tour’ (2008) that you can watch here:

Song Lyrics

Green Earth, my darling, I love you.
Green Earth , I love you, sweet and round.
I love your beautiful rivers.
I love your fresh air all around.

Green Earth is threatened by something,
no more is that happy girl.
Energy wasted is rising
with poison into her clear air.

There is something changin‘ her climate.
O Lord! It‘s we and it‘s we who must change.
Green Earth can do it all by her own.
She can change her beautiful face.

She can change into a desert,
she can starve us straight to death.
She can heat up all her oceans,
she can drown our falsehood-worlds.

She can melt her ice.
She can change her life.
It‘s we who pay the price.
It‘s we and we will cry.

We must start to change our habits,
find the energies unbound
of sun and wind and water
and of brotherhood that counts.

Green Earth, you are a treasure,
consciousness is what you need
and not war and stupid greed.
Green Earth, you are so precious indeed.

Green Earth is our home.
Green Earth is where in future too we‘ll roam.
Green Earth for our children,
Green Earth for our love.

Green Earth, my darling, I love you.
Green Earth, I love you, sweet and round.
My soul and hands are a-workin‘
for tomorrow strong and sound.

CD ‘Sweet Earth – Save the Climate of our Earth #1’

Sweet Earth

I’m living on a globe somewhere in the space-time-whole.
I’m living on a globe
somewhere in this universe.
I’m living on a globe,
I think, if I remember right, man did name it earth.

There was a garden on this earth,
I think it was called paradise.
But in there, they were so paranoid
they could not simply go ahead
with living and becoming and loving
like flowers under the sun.

Now I’m living on a globe
almost outside the space-time-whole.
I’m living on a globe
in the grip of some monster-man.
I’m living on a globe,
I think some times back it was named earth.

O my child, what has happened?
I see clouds of doom in the air.
I see the fishes dying
and the birds falling from the sky
and without pity the orator
inside his concrete dome.
O my child, protect your paradise,
do not listen to the old,
they are in love with the grave,
but you are in love with life.

We are living on a globe
somewhere in the space-time-whole
I call sweet earth ‘cause so sweet she once was.
Oh, pardon me, sweet lady, that I am only a man.

Come closer, my son, and listen with all your heart.
Do me a favor and help me to save my sweet earth.
Please, do not follow all those who are killing her life.

Be with me, my daughter,
and remember my anguished prayer.
Remember it well for the day
when your children will come
so sweet and so helpless,
cradled by our sweet earth.

And tell them softly with the shining stars,
they should not grow and become strong to destroy
and to kill and be greedy
at the earth’s expense.

Tell them to be
full of wisdom and full of love.
And remind them who has helped them
to grow and be so strong
and tell them that I always
loved my sweet earth.

O Lord, I can see
that time is no longer on our side.
But I pray: Give us one more chance.
Let us find your paradise once again.
Let us teach those around us
through your living Love.
Let us prepare for You
a place on Your sweet earth.
