What's it all about Alfie?

Updated: Apr 28, 2018

Is it just for the moment we live?


What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?


Are we meant to take more than we give


Or are we meant to be kind?


And if only fools are kind, Alfie


Then I guess it is wise to be cruel


And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie


What will you lend on an old golden rule?


As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie


I know there's something much more,


Something even non-believers can believe in


I believe in love, Alfie


Without true love we just exist, Alfie


Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, Alfie


When you walk let your heart lead the way


And you'll find love any day, Alfie


Alfie


I love this song. I only wonder how Burt Bacharach and Hal David knew this much about life, spirituallity and about quantum physics. They are song writers after all. Hahahaha, once again the arts lead the way to truth. 

Then there's John Lennon and the Beatles. 'Imagine" "Let It Be" or "All You Need is Love". Some song writers explored the dark hurting side. Simeon and Garfunkel wrote "Sounds of Silence" and they sang "Bridge Over Troubled Waters". Beautiful, melodic songs that carry deep spiritual truths.
