Wonder As A Buddy

wonder as a Buddy Instructional Video

There's a [G]hen now, mmm what's she doing?
[C]Scratching and a'pecking, eating and a'pooing
But [G]I think that's not all that's going
[C]on, M[G]mmm hmmmm
Think there's more [C]too, yes I [G]d[C]o, I [G]do

There's a [G]tree now, mmm, what's it doing?
[C]Doesn't look like much from the outside viewing
But [G]I bet there's a lot going [C]on
m[G]hmm hmmm yes I [C]do, don't [G]you?

[G]Looking at the stars
they look just like little dots
But the [C]looker switches lens
and whaddya g[D]ot?
A million galax[G]ies

And with [G]wonder as a buddy
laying on the grass,
[C]watching all the tiny creatures
trundle p[D]ast,
What if I was tiny [G]too?
The same [C]world, another point of [G]view.

There's the golden cat, mmm what's he doing?
Is he meditating or just a'snoozing?
What's going on when he's sitting like a statue?
I think there must be something going on
Yes I do, yes I do, I do.

From one little look it seems ordinary
and from another look extraordinary
Oh, what makes it so?
Yes, one little look it's ordinary
and then another look it's extraordinary, oh
What is it that's changed?
Is it it, or me that's re-arranged?

There's my attention, mmm what's it doing?
Is it directing where I's a'choosing
How I look seems to change what I see
Yes indeed, yes indeed, what reality.

And with wonder as a buddy
layin' on the grass
watching all the tiny creatures trundle past
What if I were tiny too?

Yes, looking at the stars
they look just like little dots
But the looker switches lens
and whaddya got?
Yes, how I look changes what I see.
How I look changes what I see.
Yes, how I look changes what I see.

Peace Comes From Within

Peace Comes from Within - Instructional Video

[C]Peace must come from within, [F]you [C]and [G]me
We gotta [Am]be the change we [F]wanna see [C]   [G]  

Talking about [C]equality for [G]all, and [F]all for [G]equality
[F]'Cause everyone [C]deserves to [G]get what they [C]need
And [Am]nobody is [F]worth less than [G]somebody [C]else
There's [C]enough stuff to go [Am]round, we just [F]need generosity[G]        [C]  

[G]        [Am]        [F]        [C]        [G]

We can [Am]change our [F]world for [G]better or for [C]worse
So [G]let us each [F]become a piece of [G]peace on [C]earth [G]  

Talking about freedom for all, and all for freedom
The liberty to be, as we were born to be
And the right to unite and stand up for what's right
We hold the keys to the chains that hold us, we must learn to use them

[G]        [Am]        [F]        [C]        [G]

Peace must come from within you and me
We gotta be the change we wanna see

Talking about justice for all, and all for justice
Everyone must adjust for us to attain this
It's insane to maintain this unjust status
We need a whole lot less war and a lot more fairness

[G]        [Am]        [F]        [C]        [G]

We can change our world for better or for worse
So let us each become a piece of peace on earth

Talking about kindness for all, and all for kindness
Caring for each other, and for our mother earth
Compassion for our brothers and several billion others
because everyone already knows we just need more kindness

[G]        [Am]        [F]        [C]        [G]

Peace does come from within you and me
We gotta be the change we wanna see

We can change our world for better or for worse
So let us each become a piece of peace on earth

All of the Above

All of the Above - Instructional Video

[C]Everyone has their [G]own way to
[F]pray and be [C]faithful
[F]Who could say one [C]way is the only [G]way

[C]People find it, [F]climbing mountains,
[C]or going f[F]ishing
[Am]Others find it, [F]in each other,
and [C]suddenly start
[Dm]kissing one[G]   another
For [F]some it's working the [C]land
with their [G]hands, for a [C]humble l[F]iv[C]ing

Maybe [F]all of the ab[G]ove, has a...
[F]higher [C]purpose
[C]All of the ab[F]ove

The [C]world is full of [G]strange behaviours,
But [C7]faith is found in [F]many flavours
And [C]every[G]one has their [F]favourite [C]saviour

[C]Everyone has their [G]own way,
to [F]pray and be [C]faithful
[F]Who could say one [C]way
is the only [G]way

People find it, in stone churches,
and holy books
Others see it, in their garden,
how a flower looks
For some it's lending a hand to someone
who's been overlooked

Maybe all of the above has a
higher purpose
I guess it's all just God's love,
below the surface
All of the above


People find it, in their children,
and their families
Others find it, helping strangers,
giving back to their community
For some it's taking a stand
for the earth, and the ancient trees

Maybe all of the above has a
higher purpose
All of the above

The world is full of strange behaviours
But faith is found in many flavours
And everyone has their favourite saviour


People find it, doing nothing,
or meditating
Others find it when they're praying,
when they're dancing or singing
For some it's in the air,
everywhere, in everything

Maybe all of the above, has a...
higher purpose
I guess it's all just God's love,
below the surface
All of the above
All of the above
