Album
Name of Song: Always understanding

Always understanding,
That’s what we try to do,
Sacrifice at best,
Sympathy with glue.

Money to separate,
From what we can’t stand,
Life can be haunting
It can also be grand.

Chorus
Choices we make,
Decisions that hold,
But then we move forward,
And sometimes our bold.
______

It may have returned,
What you hid from yourself,
Can’t get away from
what you put on your shelf.

Who do we blame,
Tempting at times,
But always we wreck
Our inner sublime.

Bridge
Can you imagine,
Understanding by view,
Just observe what you can,
Then pervade straight on through.
_____

Lifetimes remembering,
The things we once knew,
Only to realize
They’re not now in view.

So what do you do,
With what you once knew,
Calm your own self,
Bring it back into view.

Observe what is there,
Be true to yourself,
Pervade what you can,
Clean out your shelf.

Chorus
Choices we make,
Decisions that hold,
But then we move forward,
And sometimes our bold.
