Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

© Stephen Fearing 2016 (Victoria, BC)

Did you do what was fair
Put your money where your mouth is
Did you dig down deep
To find the change you thought you could be

Did you pay your share
Put your money where your mouth is
You realize the privilege you were born to
And the history that formed you
And the codes that you are sworn to

Everyday
Everyday
You got to find love and compassion
Like an old friend
Everyday
Everyday
For when love falls out of fashion
Then the world is cold and grey
Everyday

Did you kiss her goodbye
Put your money where your mouth is
Did you forget about the boy who dreamed of laughter
In his sleep?

Can you find your way home
Put your money where your mouth is
You know that we were innocent and bare
Before the language of despair
Destroyed the garden that we shared

Everyday
Everyday
You got to find love and compassion
Like an old friend
Everyday
Everyday
For when love falls out of fashion
Then the world is cold and grey
Everyday
