  • There's a reason for all that rhymes, it's the fact and the way of the times
    It's moving emotion, it's high and it's low, no matter where you go
    There is something for all who look, there's a story in every book
    All of the pages, between all the lines, so much that you can find

    But there's too many empty lives my friend
    And we just can't let them waste away
    For this life is a precious thing my friend
    And we just can't wait another day

    There's a message in every word, and it's more than the word you heard
    It's moving emotion, it comes like the sea, washing all over me

    For there's nothing that we can't do my friend, cause the spirit is with us all
    And it's here and it's now, it's up and it's down
    You can feel it surrounding us all.

    After all we're the same, only difference is a name and where we are
    In this crazy mixed up deal, there's so much that you can feel
    Near and far it's where you are

    And there's times when I can't contain all the feelings of love I'll gain
    It's there for the asking, it's for all of you if you would take it too

    Thanks to Ron Durham for the correction
