    (You think I'm an ignorant savage
    And you've been so many places
    I guess it must be so
    But still I cannot see
    If the savage one is me
    How can there be so much that you don't know?
    You don't know... )

    You think you own whatever land you land on
    The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
    But I know every rock and tree and creature
    Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

    You think the only people who are people
    Are the people who look and think like you
    But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
    You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

    Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
    Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
    Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
    Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
    Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

    Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
    Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
    Come roll in all the riches all around you
    And for once, never wonder what they're worth

    The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
    The heron and the otter are my friends
    And we are all connected to each other
    In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

    How high does the sycamore grow?
    If you cut it down, then you'll never know

    And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
    For whether we are white or copper skinned
    We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
    We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

    You can own the Earth and still
    All you'll own is Earth until
    You can paint with all the colors of the wind

      such a beautiful song, with a beautiful message.

      the version that's played within the movie is a lot better than the version by vanessa williams.

      Yeah, this song's amazing!

      In this TV-show in Denmark a little girl (12 years) sang the song - and it really got me crying... This song's beautiful!
