THE THINGS YOU CAN DO

Another story
Brutal and cold
Has flooded the air waves
Another reason
Valid and bold
To try and defeat the rage

Don’t hide behind that
Light in your eyes
Face the burning wind
Oh, gather the warmth
Make some good ties
Then watch the whole word spin

[ch]
I’m just a person who cares about you
And wants to see you smile
No other reason to be here now
Think about that for awhile
I’m just a person with hope in her hands
Offering some to you
Take it now or pass it on
Oh, the things you can do

A morning hello
Some friendly talk
Can make the day brighter
An open heart
May risk it all
Because it is inspired

A simple story
Happy and sweet
Has sneaked in thru the fog
Another reason
Lives will meet
So stand up and applaud

[ch]
I’m just a person who cares about you
And wants to see you smile
No other reason to be here now
Think about that for awhile
I’m just a person with hope in her hands
Offering some to you
Take it now or pass it on
Oh, the things you can do

[br]
Trust that you’ll feel better in the coming hours
Believe that reaching out has some lasting power

Repeat ch
