Outside You - May 3, 2001

Outside You
(c) May 3, 2001

To be aware of life around you
not consumed within your own
is a gift of so few people
it's why so many are alone

Too busy to enjoy
all the people you might know
or the beauty all around you
in all the places that you go

Too caught up in your own routine
to set aside some time
for people close beside you
who need your love so kind

You won't hear what's wonderful
if you're alone and sad
you must rise to meet the joy in life
so things don't seem so bad

So next time you're depressed
and things don't feel so great
try to get outside yourself
and join the human race
