Lyrics
What do people do who don’t communicate?
What do people do who do not speak?
Shuffle on in silence through a closed and hungry life?
A life like that seems dismal, dark, and bleak.

Some folks go through life without a word to say
Some folks just don’t need someone to care.
I don’t believe that’s true, I think they just don’t have a friend
To listen when they really need to share.

You must open your heart, and open your mind,
And open your ears to the message behind
The words that are said - the words that are spread
Through emotion and insinuation
It’s just basic communication.

And often words don’t speak as loud as actions do
What you do means much more than you say.
Those little disagreements that put walls in between us
Are just semantic hang-ups in the way.

Oh, some people will argue their whole waking life
I wonder sometimes how that can be so.
But I listen with patience to the things that they say
‘Cause there’s something they want me to know.

I must open my heart, and open my mind,
And open my ears to the message behind
The words that are said - the words that are spread
Through emotion and insinuation
It’s just basic communication.

This would be a very hard topic to write a song about for me. That's me-you on the other hand did a exelent job of it. Sounds great and as Mr. Feter said the harmony is right on. Thanks.

Not sayin' I'm good at it...
"But I listen with patience..." It's very difficult sometimes, eh? "God grant me the serenity..." (Remember that poem?)

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
