I CARE

(Compassion, freedom, respect)

 

I care when I listen to you

I care when I share with you

I care when I hug you so tight 

I care when I kiss you goodnight

 

Chorus:

‘Cause caring is a loving thing to do

It comes from me and it comes from you

It’s like magic as it brightens up our day

It’s all the loving things we do and all the loving words we say

 

I care when I put my things away

I care when I help in some way

I care when I’m kind to you

I care when I care about me too
