The Empathy Song

by Listen & Learn Music

/
1.
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
