compassion

IMG_0762

have compassion for everyone you meet
even if they don’t want it
what seems conceit
is always a sign
always a sign
always a sign
for those you encounter
have compassion
even if they don’t want it
what seems bad manners
is always a sign
always a sign
always a sign

always a sign
of things no ears have heard
always a sign
of things no eyes have seen
you do not know
what wars are going on
down there, where the spirit meets the bone
down there, where the spirit meets the bone
down where the spirit meets the bone

for everyone you listen to
have compassion
even if they don’t want it
what seems cynicism
is always a sign
always a sign
always a sign
always a sign

always a sign
of things no ears have heard
always a sign of things no eyes have seen
you do not know
what wars are going on
down there, where the spirit meets the bone
down there, where the spirit meets the bone
down where the spirit meets the bone

words: lucinda williams | compassion – from the album down where the spirit meets the bone
