Songs That Changed the World--The Most Important Songs of the Rock Era: "That's the Way of the World" by Earth, Wind & Fire

The message in this next song in our Songs That Changed the World* series gives hope and inspiration in times of despair, to "look inside and find peace of mind."  Only when we are quiet can we hear the Inner Voice.  Great, great song from Earth, Wind & Fire...
"That's the Way of the World"
by Earth, Wind & Fire

Written by Charles Stepney, Maurice White & Verdine White

Hearts of fire
creates love desire
Take you high and higher
to the world you belong
Hearts of fire
creates love desire
High and higher
to your place on the throne

We've come together
on this special day
To sing our message
loud and clear
Looking back we've touched
on sorrowful days
Future pass, they disappear

(You will find)
You will find
 (peace of mind)
Hey, if you look way down
in your heart and soul
Don't hesitate
'cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart
'cause you're never (never, never, ..)
old at heart

That's the way of the world
Plant your flower
and you grow a pearl
A child is born
with a heart of gold
The way of the world
makes his heart grow cold
