Listen to Your Heart

This powerhouse song from Red's Grammy-nominated "Bebop Your Best" CD reminds us that when we listen to the little voice inside us we are always guided to our higher self. The lyrics are a  rich treasure trove of the vocabulary of character, listing thirty-nine varied character traits that we are all working to acquire day by day.  Hearing children singing out this song loud and clear is a profoundly inspiring experience.

Listen to Your Heart

Truthfulness, sincerity, patience, perseverance
Courtesy, integrity, compassion, and endurance
Fortitude, trustworthiness, excellence - I give my best... mmm

Sharing, caring, kindness, respect, and moderation
Courage, enthusiasm, determination
Justice, joy, discipline - light up this world we're in... mmm

Chorus
Walkin' through my life I've found
That my very best friend is the one inside of me
There's a small voice in my heart
When I stop... and listen... It's there guiding me, guiding me

Friendliness, openness, cooperation
Gratitude, willingness, consideration
Honor, wisdom, loyalty - they feel so good to me... mmm

Modesty, tenacity, acceptance, and forgiveness
Hope, responsibility, humility, and fairness
These are what I'm thinking of, with them I've got enough... mmm

Chorus

It's just a little voice... but when you have a choice...
listen to your heart
No matter when or where... you know it's always there...
so listen to your heart

Truthfulness, sincerity, patience, perseverance
Courtesy, integrity, compassion, and endurance
Fortitude, trustworthiness, excellence - I give my best.....
