Stevie WonderTake The Time Out

Lying out on the street, there's a man That needs somewhere to sleep And a bag-lady digs, through the trash Hoping to find some food to eat In the cold winter's snow, walks a boy That needs shoes for his feet In an old run-down house, there's a child In a crib that needs some heat In the dark of the night, a young man Searches for a guiding light And a young woman cries in despair Cause she feels alone in life You might ask yourself what in the hell Does that have to do with me Well, here is your wake up call... "Everything!" Cause we all play a part in each other's existence Take the time out to love someone Reach your arms out and hug someone Be it king or some homeless one We are all one underneath the sun Take the time out to be right there Take the time out to show you care You'll be so glad when the day is done You took the time out to love someone There's a man in a house where they're selling crack Yet he's trying to be strong But when lost in the sea, of no hope He must be saved from wrong Don't say what you won't do, if for days You had no food to eat Nor extremes you won't go, for a bed, shoes Or if your baby needed heat You do not have the right to pre-judge If you don't share your strength And you can't say you're down for the fight If you won't go the length Now I don't really care what you feel If you don't feel for life And don't care what you think if your words Don't have ways and actions that perpetuate life Take the time out to love someone Reach your arms out and hug someone Be it king or some homeless one We are all one underneath the sun Take the time out to be right there Take the time out to show you care You'll be so glad when the day is done You took the time out to love someone [Repeat] I think it's time to... Take the time out to love someone Reach your arms out and hug someone Be it king or some homeless one We are all one underneath the sun Take the time out to be right there Take the time out to show you care You'll be so glad when the day is done You took the time out to love someone [Repeat]
