Give

Album: Lady & Gentlemen (2011)

  • Everybody's reachin' for something
    Every day pullin' and tugging
    And always wantin' a little more
    Holdin' on to her like an anchor
    Treatin' those we love like strangers
    Takin' names and keeping score
    We all know, what we're really after
    Somewhere along the road, we got it backwards

    If you want to get love then give it
    If you want to feel some forgiveness
    Then you've gotta let go and do some forgiving of your own
    If you want a friend then be one
    A little bit of kindness, show some
    You'll be surprised at how much finds it's way back home
    It don't matter what it is
    If you want it, give.

    I been down right stubborn,
    At one time or another,
    And found it easier to bend.
    I've had a shoulder to lean on
    Been the one who got to be strong
    And peace was waiting at both ends
    I've felt the power, I've seen what it can do
    It's seemed so simple, so simple that it's true

    If you want to get love then give it
    If you want to feel some forgiveness
    Then you've gotta let go and do some forgiving of your own
    If you want a friend then be one
    A little bit of kindness, show some
    You'll be surprised at how much finds it's way back home
    It don't matter what it is
    If you want it, give.

    If you want a friend then be one
    A little bit of kindness show some
    You'll be surprised of how much finds it's way back home
    It don't matter what it is
    If you want it, give. Writer/s: CONNIE HARRINGTON, JIMMY YEARY, SONYA ISAACS
