From a Distance

 

“From a Distance” is one of my favorite songs, especially the version sung by Bette Middler. I remember hearing it every morning in the early ’90ies on the radio. It was then that I lived in the Frankfurt area and passed the airport on my way to work, where huge military aircrafts either took off to or returned from the Golf region that was at war. It was a very scary situation. This song was a little flame of hope.

Eines meiner Lieblingslieder ist “From a Distance” in der von Bette Middler gesungenen Version. Als ich in den frühen ’90igern in der Gegend um Frankfurt herum lebte, hörte ich es jeden Morgen, wenn ich zur Arbeit fuhr. Mein Weg führte mich vorbei am Frankfurter Flughafen, wo unablässig große Militärmaschinen starteten und landeten, die Einsätze im Golf-Krieg flogen. Dieses Lied war so etwas wie ein Fünkchen Hoffnung.x

From a Distance

From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.From a distance, there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
It’s the voice of hope, it’s the voice of peace,
it’s the voice of every man.From a distance we all have enough,
and no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease,
no hungry mouths to feed.From a distance we are instruments
marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They’re the songs of every man.
God is watching us. God is watching us.
God is watching us from a distance.From a distance you look like my friend,
even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
what all this fighting is for.

From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves,
it’s the heart of every man.

It’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves.
This is the song of every man.
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
God is watching us from a distance.
Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
God is watching us from a distance.
