Written on acoustic 12-string, this song is encouraging us not to forget those we care about.


We carry on every day, we plug along come what may,
As we play this game called life.
We get caught up in all affairs, in defense we put on airs,
It could be called the game of strife.

But many feel misunderstood. They feel that things are not so good,
They could use a salve.
They don't know if others care, if you have love than you should share
Show the love you have.

Just think of those of which you care, what have you that you can share,
To help them through these days?
A smile, a hug, a kind word, let them know that they are heard,
That you hear all their "hey"s.

Just think about when you are down, and you feel there's no one around,
What do you want most of all?
You hope that someone will reach out, and put an end to all your doubt,
Just act before they fall.

Life is difficult, with many shipwrecked on the sand
All they need is for someone to come and lend a hand.

Many feel as if they're lost at sea looking for land
All they need is for someone to come and lend a hand.

Let your friends know that you care, that you are glad that they are there
How special they are to you.
Cause life will try to beat them down, overwhelm them so they drown
So prove your love is true.
