Track Name: The Empathy Song
You can use your ears and eyes
To listen, observe and empathize
With a person who may be feeling sad
Confused, or worried, or just plain mad

Empathy is imagining
Yourself in their place
Because it’s only then you can understand
The feelings behind a face

Offer to lend a listening ear
And concentrate so you can hear
As they explain what’s in their heart
Listening is how you start

CHORUS

Be observant and use your eyes
Notice frowns and tears, shrugs and sighs
Body language can clue you in
To let the helping begin

CHORUS

But your work isn’t done, it’s time to share
That it’s okay to feel that way, and that you really care
Talking it out, and going the extra mile
By empathizing can lead to a smile

CHORUS
Track Name: The Empathy Song (Instrumental)
You can use your ears and eyes
To listen, observe and empathize
With a person who may be feeling sad
Confused, or worried, or just plain mad

Empathy is imagining
Yourself in their place
Because it’s only then you can understand
The feelings behind a face

Offer to lend a listening ear
And concentrate so you can hear
As they explain what’s in their heart
Listening is how you start

CHORUS

Be observant and use your eyes
Notice frowns and tears, shrugs and sighs
Body language can clue you in
To let the helping begin

CHORUS

But your work isn’t done, it’s time to share
That it’s okay to feel that way, and that you really care
Talking it out, and going the extra mile
By empathizing can lead to a smile
