The Great Love Letter Of This Great World

Everybody’s walking around,
as if they didn’t know
that we’re in this together.
Everybody’s talking loud,
as if raising a voice
made anybody feel better.

Everybody’s living so damn small,
trying to argue and blame.
They dig a little bit and see we’re different
but if they dug a little more
they’d see we’re all the same.

In the black of your night
let your light be un-killable.
On the white of your page
let your heart be unfurled.
For each of us is a single syllable
in the great love letter of this great world
the great love letter of this world.

Everybody’s got a worried mind:
what if they’re the ones
who have to carry the weight?
Everybody’s got a story-line
how they stood there starving
while some other folks ate.

No good deed goes unpunished.
At least, that’s what everybody says.
They give a little bit and get bitter about it,
but if they gave a little more
they’d see how sweet life is.

In the black of your night
let your light be unkillable.
On the white of your page
let your heart be unfurled.
For each of us is a single syllable
in the great love letter of this great world
the great love letter of this world.
