From a distance

From a distance the world is blue and green
With snow like a down duvet
From a distance, where heaven meets ocean
And the birds twitter faintly
 
From a distance we are equals
And where no borders are marked
No weapons, neither hunger or war
And no children suffering
 
From a distance the world is silent so
One can hear the humming so
A song about hope
A song about peace
A song for you and me
 
From a distance you are my friend
Even if we are in conflict
From a distance readable what we really fought about
 
From a distance the world is silent so
One can hear the humming so
A song about hope
A song about peace
A song for you and me
 
And that's plea for prayer
And there is hope for hope
And that is the call we are waiting for
 
Do you see the sky?
Do you see the stars?
They are clearer from a distance
Do you feel the air?
Do you hear the birds?
They are more beautiful from a distance
From a distance
 
From a distance
 
Thanks!

The translation is good, but has an incorrect line due to incorrect transcription. "From a distance readable what we really fought about" should be "From a distance it is unreadable what we're really fighting about".
