LIGHT: THE LOVE YOU GIVE

Continuing with posting song lyrics to songs I have written, today’s song is titled, “The Love You Give”.

THE LOVE YOU GIVE

(VERSE 1)
There’s a story ‘bout a boy
Who lived up on a hill
He watched the sheep ‘til the sun went down
Then one day he cried wolf
The village came to find that there was no wolf around
He played that same trick every day
‘Til mister wolf really came and took him away

(CHORUS)
The love you give circles ‘round the whole world and comes back to you.
The love you give circles ‘round the whole world and comes back to you. It comes back to you.

(VERSE 2)
Social people living calculated lives
Their expectations, that’s fine by me
But don’t judge me and don’t criticize
There are so many things life wants me to see
But for the record I’m on my way
Don’t try to stop me, I won’t play your game today

(CHORUS)
The love you give circles ‘round the whole world and comes back to you.
The love you give circles ‘round the whole world and comes back to you. It comes back to you.

(BRIDGE)
I feel crooked and upside down like a zigzag line in a busy town where cars honk honk honk
Because the people inside them are not all together happy with who they are
Or maybe they’ve lost something ‘long the way but they don’t understand what’s missing
So they turn to their money and their jobs and their stories which are really pretty empty but they’re longing for attention
And they talk, babble babble on but nobody’s listening. Sorry, we’ve got our own lives too.

(VERSE 3)
And you ask me why you feel so unhappy
When you’ve helped nobody but yourself all of your life
And you ask me why you feel so lonely
Mundane daily routines are cutting into you like a knife
And I ask do you believe in karma?
The love you give circles ‘round the world and comes back to you.

(CHORUS)
The love you give circles ‘round the whole world and comes back to you.
The love you give circles ‘round the whole world and comes back to you. It comes back to you.

It comes back to you.

(Until tomorrow, all my love!)
