"One"

"One" by Carole King
The 2018 version

Poetic phrases come to mind
Whenever I find injustice being done
And I wonder, what am I gonna do
What am I gonna do

What can one do except be one
Talking to two, touching three, growing to four million
Each of us is one
All of us are one

Open your heart and let the love come shining through
And you will do what you need to do
To know just where the other you is coming from
We are one

It just amazes me that I can be
Part of the energy it takes to serve each other
And I wonder, what am I gonna do
What am I gonna do

What will we do
We’re gonna run
Reach for the sun
Come together as one
Show ‘em how it’s done
At the end of the day we’ll be able to say
Love won.

  2. One does wonder...if ever we will come together as one...

    I, for one, doubt it...

    1. Your pessimism is probably well-founded but we should keep trying. I think that is Carole King's message in these troubled times.

    2. Not pessimism, Yorkie. I've never considered myself to be a pessimist...a realist, perhaps...but not a pessimist.

    1. I think that is partly why she has reworked this song John.

    1. "Tapestry" was and remains an iconic album.

  5. Being one is a goal that has to be out there. I cannot believe the evil in separation.
