Name of Song: Be worthy of Trust

The grocer, the milkman,
The doctor who cared,
The neighbor we waved at,
The friends we all shared.

The teacher who liked you,
And trusted to learn,
That boss who knew kindness
And never was stern.

Chorus
I remember we trusted,
And it grew as we learned,
That people were kind,
Always doing good turns.
Sometimes betrayal,
We expected as much,
But agreements were strong,
To be worthy of trust.
_______

Agreements were strong
to be worthy of trust,
Never a thought
that it wasn’t a must.

Yes we would fall,
But we got up right away,
Friendships were above
our reactions to sway.

Chorus
I remember we trusted,
And it grew as we learned,
That people were kind,
Always doing good turns.
Sometimes betrayal,
We expected as much,
But agreements were strong,
To be worthy of trust.

Bridge
Never a thought
To betray family or friends,
We gave ourselves strength
to stand strong till the end.
Sometimes it’s hard
To love despite hate,
Welcome to Earth
and our urge to stay straight.
