Wilson, Brian - Colors Of The Wind Lyrics




You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people (who are people)
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll find things you never knew you never knew (you never knew)

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains? (of the mountains)
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you (all around you)
And for once, never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers (brothers)
The heron and the otter are my friend
And we are all connected to each other (to each other)
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or let the eagle tell you where he's been?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We can to sing with all the voices of the mountains (of the mountains)
We can paint with all the color of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you'll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind (of the wind)

    Brian Wilson sings this song
    Disney: Dang it Pocahontas should have been a guy, and Brian should have interpreted him.

    Walt would be proud.







    The Beach Boys & Walt were both featured on one of Jack Benny's TV specials in the 60s.

  12. darrenjray

    I didn't like this song until I heard Brian sing it. There is something about his voice that his backing singers just don't have.

  13. PartyCowboy

    i like peanuts, nuff said!!!

  14. Pearl

    I mean Hannah Montana lol

  15. Nick Frenay

    ...they don't now? can you name any songs from a Disney movie that don't deal with very real and meaningful topics and are written with great care and quality? cause i can't.

  16. Pearl

    Back when Disney songs had a meaning :)

  17. Adam Defrancesco

    Brian Did write the arrangement for the music.. yes a disney tune but He wrote the style to fit his voice...

  18. AngelusDlion

    @jorgecubria Brian Wilson is just preforming the song. It's not his music, he didn't create it.

    Not so hard to understand, really.

  19. Jorge Cubria

    @AngelusDlion
    Sorry, I'm lost here, I don't get what you mean...sorry

  20. AngelusDlion

    @jorgecubria Want to take money on someone else doing the arrangement of the music? I'll bet a nickle. (I never bet what I can't afford to loose.)

  21. Jorge Cubria

    @AngelusDlion This is much more than "nailing the singing" is a superb arrangement to an outstanding song by the biggest musical genious of our days. Just listen to those backing vocls. Don't be blasphemous !!!! REPENT, SINNER !!!!

  22. AngelusDlion

    @DWLOW50S Except it's Disney's music, Wilson is just nailing the singing.
