"Child of Man" as written by Achinoam Nini and Gil Dor....
If I were a desert flower
All winter long I'd pain and cower
Spring would make me sing
My voice would ring
As tiny buds begin to bloom
In spring I'd blossom and forget
The winter's gloom.

If I were a brook of water
Kissed by the frost along my borders
Spring would make me sing
My voice would ring
As I'd release my ice chains
In spring I'd bubble and forget the
Winter's rains.

But I am only a child of man
I am only a child of man
Just an innocent child of man

Don't look so surprised as my
Eyes shine and glow
It's the sunlight in the skies that
Is making me so.

If I were a joyful songbird
All winter long so cold and somber
Spring would make me sing
My voice would ring like tiny bells
On scarves of silk
A song as beautiful and pure as
Mother's milk.

But I am only a child of man
I am only a child of man
Just an innocent child of man

Don't look so surprised as my eyes
Shine and glow
It's the sunlight in the skies
That is making me so.

Don't be surprised
But this look in my eyes
Like a flower or tree
I will bloom in the spring
I will shed all my woes
As the green grass grows
Like a flower or tree
I will throw my head back and sing

If I were a desert flower, desert flower
