(The river knows,babe
The blue sky knows
The ocean knows, babe
And the warm winds know
Yes they know, yes they know
Do they know?, yes they know)

It's not my song, what you hear is not my song
I couldn't tell who wrote that song
I just pass it on
It's not your love, or anybody else's love
It lingers for an afternoon
And fades with the sun

Don't hold it down, just leave it, baby
Never keep it, don't hold it down
It'll fade in your hands
If you don't pass it on
Leave it alone, just touch it
Never keep it, leave it alone
It's free as the wind - that passes it on

It's not your child, or anybody else's child
Like any other child it's born
To pass it on
Watch these men, fighting for a desperate land
They're bleeding on my TV screen
But not very long

Don't hold it down, just leave it, baby
Never keep it, don't hold it down
It'll fade in your hands
If you don't pass it on
Leave it alone, just touch it
Never keep it, leave it alone
It's free as the wind - that passes it on

Watch me sleep, love me crazy, love me deep
Use me for an afternoon
And pass me on

Don't hold it down, just leave it, baby
Never keep it, don't hold it down
It'll fade in your hands
If you don't pass it on
Leave it alone, just touch it
Never keep it, leave it alone
It's free as the wind - that passes it on - uuh
That passes it on - oh yeah
That passes it on - oh yeah
That passes it on...
on and on and on...
