THE PLACE INSIDE
There is a lonely place inside
Where all your troubles go--
Where dreams end up being deferred
And hurtings seem to flow.
There is a place within your heart
That always comprehends--
It's there to understand your pain
And always makes amends.
There is a place within your soul
That listens to your cries--
It listens to the voice inside
And helps you hold your head up high.
There is a friend who'll always listen
And help the pain go away--
He's there to listen to all your problems
And he'll never go astray.
There is a place within yourself
That only you can find--
A place that only you can reach
To find your peace of mind.
