WHEN YOU CARE

Lyrics by John Bettis
Music by Steve Schalchlin

c1996 by See No Evil Music / Lil Shack O Tunes / Songs by John

There’s a light holding us together
There’s a light holding us all together
Some will call it fate
Some will call it life
The name doesn’t matter
It just doesn’t matter

There’s a word stronger than the silence
There’s a word stronger than any silence
Some will call it love
Some will call it God
The name doesn’t matter
It just doesn’t matter

When you care
When you care
You don’t need an explanation when you care
Either you love or you don’t
Either you will or you won’t
You don’t need an explanation when you care

Out of time. Everyone is running out time
And the river keeps on running
You can live every day
You can die every day
Which way doesn’t matter
It just doesn’t matter

When a hand reaches in the darkness
When a hand touches you in the darkness
It may be a friend
Or someone you don’t know
Which one doesn’t matter
It just doesn’t matter

When you care
When you care
You can only make a difference when you care
Either you love or you don’t
Either you will or you won’t
You can only make a difference when you care

It seems to me life’s mystery
Is written in the language of the heart
We learn to read from what we need
And everything the poetry of living teaches us
It teaches us
Every day it teaches us

When you care
When you care
You can only lift the darkness when you care
Either you love or you don’t
Either you will or you won’t
You don’t need an explanation
You can only make a difference
You can only lift the darkeness
When you care
When you care
