Take Good Care of Me

Now gently close your eyes and listen to what I have to say –
It’s only four chords and a handful of words,
Rather than pearls of wisdom, they are rocks from deep within a mine
That I’ve unburied bare-handed in a lifetime.
Don’t try to make sense of everything, because every thing makes sense;
The smallest grain of wheat contains the universe.
 
Because nature is a book made of mysterious words
Where nothing is greater than the simple things,
It’s the flower growing through the tarmac, the spectacle of the skies,
 
It’s the orchestra of leaves playing on the wind’s strings,
It’s the fire that burns, gives warmth and then dies.
Life is the only miracle that cannot be denied,
Because everything is a miracle, all you see before your eyes.
 
And no other day will be the same as yesterday,
So live this one as if it were your last,
Don’t let any moment just slip past.
Imagine if we grew wings and flew
 
From the mountains to the sea –
Tell me, where would you like to be?
Hold me tight, should I get scared of the height
Imagine, we are keeping our balance
 
On top of the word together, you and me
Take good care of me
Take good care of me
 
Time changes you on the outside, love changes you on the inside,
Instead of claiming center stage, all it takes is to stand side by side.
Love is the only course, the only driving force,
It’s the holy spark that burns within your heart.
You’ve already found happiness – now protect it.
 
Remember, on the other side of a tear shines a light.
And those few seeds you leave behind
Are like chrysalises which will turn into butterflies.
Everyone must fight their own fight.
 
You surrender to everything, don’t judge others’ mistakes,
Forgive the ones who hurt you, receive them in your embrace
Because an even greater feat, my dear, is to forgive yourself.
 
Immerse yourself into your pain and drink up its bitter cup,
Even if it might prove to be as hard as lifting the world up,
And you’ll realize the tunnel is just a bridge –
One step and you are crossing it.
 
Imagine if we grew wings and flew
From the mountains to the sea –
Tell me, where would you like to be?
Hold me tight, should you get scared of the height.
Can you imagine, despite everything
 
We are still together
Take good care of me no matter what path you choose, my love
Take good care of me
Take good care of me
 
Everything is so fragile –
Now slowly open your eyes and stay by my side
Because my voice is trembling as if I were a child,
But for as long as I shall breathe,
You hold me tight and don’t ever leave.
Take good care of me
