    (kirsty maccoll/hamish maccoll)

    With me in the valley you out on the hill
    I can just see you if I close my eyes
    Climbing those mountains I picture you still
    I see your smile just as I saw the sunrise
    This land is ancient it's built out of bones
    At war with each other, the mother, the father
    The sisters, the brothers, the daughters and sons
    Be kind to each other, your father, your mother

    On the horizon the eagles are flying
    And I mean no more than a cloud in the sky
    I never know if I'm laughing or crying
    The hardest word is the word goodbye
    Teach me the old ways I'm ready to learn
    Be kind to the sister, be kind to the brother
    The writer, the singer, the poet, the clown
    Be good to the man and be kind to them all

    And we are ancient built from bones
    Make time for the young and make time for the old
    Be kind to each other oh that's what I know
    Be kind to the mothers, daughters and sons

    The true and the great and the scared and the small
    Be kind to each other, be kind to them all
    Forgive our indignity and we forgive yours
    As I am the mother, you are the father
    Entwined in each other, now and forever
    The fathers of daughters, the mothers of sons
    Forever and ever and ever as one
    As we are the fathers, we are the sons
    And we are the daughters, the mothers and brothers
    Forever and ever and ever as one
