​Compassion

This song is by Lucinda Williams and appears on the album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone (2014).

Have compassion for everyone you meet
Even if they don't want it
What seems conceit is always a sign
Always a sign
Always a sign

For those you encounter
Have compassion
Even if they don't want it
What seems bad manners is always a sign
Always a sign
Always a sign

Always a sign of things no ears have heard
Always a sign of things no eyes have seen
You do not know
What wars are going on
Down there where the spirit meets the bone
Down there where the spirit meets the bone
Down where the spirit meets the bone

For everyone you listen to
Have compassion
Even if they don't want it
What seems cynicism is always a sign
Always a sign
Always a sign

Always a sign of things no ears have heard
Always a sign of things no eyes have seen
You do not know
What wars are going on
Down there where the spirit meets the bone
Down there where the spirit meets the bone
Down where the spirit meets the bone

Down there where the spirit meets the bone
Down there where the spirit meets the bone
Down where the spirit meets the bone
