Show the World Some Love

Colleen Dillon

Uploaded .

Wrote this song yesterday after another long week of crummy news in the world and had the good fortune of the Minnesota song writers in my living room tonight to help me bring it to life. Greg Connor - on the cigar beat box, Colin Walterson on the bass, Scott Zosel and John Davis on guitars. Recorded once again around my coffee table on a little Tascam. Hope you like it!

Show the World Some Love

Do do do do do do do
Do do do do do’
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do

Every day it’s more and more
Sad endings, all bad news
It makes you want to run and hide
There’s nothing you can do

Maybe it’s just simple
Little things you say and do
Your words they really matter
And your deeds they matter too

Show the world some love people
One day at a time
Little things you do can
Make the grey turn to sunshine

You’ve got to stop your thinking that it’s someone else’s due
Show the world some love people
You’ll make a difference too
Show the world some love people
It’s not that hard to do

I was just out walking
Thinking what can one soul do?
Will it ever be all right?
Will we survive this too?

Then I saw a stranger and
Looked them in the eye
I calmed my fear and said hello
A smile was their reply

Repeat Chorus:

Do do do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do
