Give

Everybody's reaching for something
Every day a-pulling and tugging
And always wanting a little more
Holding on to hurt like an anchor
Treating those we love like strangers
Taking names and keeping score
We all know, what we're really after
Somewhere along the road, we got it backwards

If you wanna get love then give it
If you wanna 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 of how much finds its 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 seemed so simple, so simple that it's true

If you wanna get love then give it
If you wanna 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 of how much finds its 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 its way back home
It don't matter what it is
If you want it, give.
