Lyrics
That Simple Act of Kindness
-J.D.Carroll


It wasn?t all that long ago
when I last saw your smile.
So it came as some surprise to hear you?d gone.
I should have seen it coming,
they?d been talking for a while.
Still I hoped the news I heard was wrong.

We didn?t have a lot in common,
but we knew each other pretty well.
Two different lives that sometimes crossed but not for very long.
You?d always stop what you were doing
when I came around
and ask me what I had goin? on.

That Simple Act of Kindness
that you probably forgot
meant more than you will ever know,
more than you will ever know,
That Simple Act of Kindness
meant more than you will ever know to me.

It?s funny how some little things
stand out in you mind,
while others, maybe more important fade.
One beauty of a memory
is each time it is recalled
it can drift a bit like when great music?s played.

You would always have a story
about some odd situation
involving your family and your friends.
I don?t know how you did it
but whenever I was there
you always found a way to weave me in.


That Simple Act of Kindness
that you probably forgot
meant more than you will ever know,
more than you will ever know,
That Simple Act of Kindness
meant more than you will ever know to me.

I?m sittin? here this evening
watchin? that fire burn
and I?m wonderin? if you?ll ever hear this tune.

I don?t think that I can send it
although your address is quite well known.
I?m pretty sure it?ll come back postage due.

But to me it?s kind of special
and I know I won?t forget
the memory of the laughter and the songs.
All the times when we were singin? and I forgot the words
you made them up and we all carried on.

That Simple Act of Kindness
that you probably forgot
meant more than you will ever know,
more than you will ever know,
That Simple Act of Kindness
meant more than you will ever know to me.

Those simple acts of kindness
that you probably forgot
meant more than you will ever know,
more than you will ever know,
Those simple acts of kindness
meant more than you will ever know to me.
