Song#: 6

Album
Name of Song: Robert Redford – A Master of the Aesthetic

He always made you feel welcome,
He genuinely liked the arts,
He loved the whole world of movies,
He could make them, or direct them, as well as act.

When he acted alongside another,
He always allowed them to be totally themselves,
He did it by creating his space around them,
He included those around him in his art.

Chorus
His ability to make others feel important,
His desire to watch others be themselves,
He did it all by listening and watching them act,
Then he would add what he felt apropos.
______

He intensely made sure that he listened,
With such a willingness, things usually went his way,
Even though he had lines that guided his act,
Because he listened he always knew what to say.

His charm was based on his listening,
He loved to let the other person do their create,
He would let them lead whenever he could,
And he could always pick up any slack.

Chorus
His ability to make others feel important,
His desire to watch others be themselves,
He did it all by listening and watching them act,
Then he would add what he felt apropos.
______

Creating his space around everyone he talked to,
Always listening to what the other person was saying,
These two points were the secret to most of his success,
Whether he was acting or directing others in their take.
