Lyrics

Best thing I ever saw
Was a man who loved his wife
In a place where things were good
I felt peace in the neighbourhood

That feeling in the air
Something was definitely there
It was a time when things were good
I felt peace in the neighbourhood

I was there, I really was.
At the center of a love vibration.
People sharing with their friend.
Helping each other out
Peace in the neighbourhood
Helping each other out

Then I woke up from my dream
To see things as they really are
People struggling to survive
How can peace hope to stay alive?

Well I was there...I felt so good
At the center of a love vibration.
People caring for their world
Helping each other out.
Peace in the neighbourhood
Helping each other out.
Peace in the neighbourhood
Helping each other out.

Best thing I ever saw
I saw a man who loved his wife.

Peace in the neighbour hood
Helping each other out.
Peace in the neighbourhood
