Selfless Love

  I went down to the river
  To see what I could find
  I cried out, "This world is not for me
  They don't appreciate my kind."
  And the river called my name out,
  "I'm afraid you must be wrong.
  It's much too shallow here for suicide.
  You had better move along."
  And ...

  Selfish love will just bring you pain
  But selfless love is never in vain
  Selfish love will just bring you pain
  But selfless love is never in vain
  It's never in vain

  So I climbed up to the mountain
  And I saw my purpose clear
  I was just about to take the leap
  When a voice rang in my ear
  "I am just a little mole hill.
  You made a mountain out of me.
  No man is as blind as he
  Who will refuse to see."
  Because ...

  I was standing in the city
  In the dirty grey of dawn
  And I looked up at the sky and cried,
  "How can you let this go on?"
  And a voice said, "I know things are tough,
  But I'm doing all I can.
  Just don't tell me how to do my job,
  You just wouldn't understand."
  Remember ...
