More Bipolar Lyrics

Teach Your Children; 1970 Atlantic Records: on the Deja vu; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (Graham Nash)
Teach the Sick Ones
You, who are almost well
Have lived through hell
And even sur-vived.
And so, you've learned some skills
To escape the ills
That others die by.

Teach the sick ones well
So their daily hell, will quickly go by.
And give them what they need
So they can suc-ceed,
Without a death cry.
Never ask them when they're high
If they feel like they could die
Just listen for the sigh,
And know you'll help them.

And you, who do not feel well
Must sit a spell
With those who've lived by.
The ills that you must feel
'Cause you cannot heal
Until you know why.

Treat your healers well
And your daily hell, might quickly go by.
And tell them of your fears
The ones you know,
The ones you grow by.
Don't you ever hide the why
Because you think that they might die
If they know the dreadful sigh,
Of the hole within you.

P.S. You can listen to a free midi of this song on the following site.You can get the original words and guitar chords on this site, although I haven't tested the chords to make sure they sound good.

Dear Wendalyn,
Thanks again. It's very fun for me to do this kind of writing, but you have to be a certain age to appreciate the songs I like writing lyrics to!
