lyrics

When I arrived
I found I'd gone nowhere
My baggage got lost somewhere on the way

It was a lousy day
Everything not going my way
And yet I had to smile

Because every day is beautiful, you know?
When you've got your peace of mind?

You really have arrived

I traveled so far
And wound up going nowhere
A smile on my face
After running in place
It's just another day
Every day’s really quite okay

No need to worry
Where’s that smile?

Because every day is beautiful, you know?
When you’ve got your peace of mind?

You really have arrived

Yet once in a while I feel it.
I feel it too much.
I get so out of touch with what is right and good and fine.

… and so I need to realign.

Hey it’s a sunny day.
Why would you get in your own way?
When you can wear a wise man's smile?
Because every day is beautiful, you know?

When you've got your peace of mind?

You really have arrived.

I'll lay it on the line ...
There's nothing more you'll find.

You've got your peace of mind?

You really have arrived.

Kevin White

After a stint in Special Ops, working covertly in the world's most dangerous hot spots, a chance meeting with a Zulu medicine man launched an interest in music.

For the healing power of song, as evidenced by Coca Cola's "We'd like to teach the world to sing", followed up by Pepsi's "The world sings out of tune", is instrumental-not in a literal sense, but a musical one; literally. Please enjoy.
