What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.
Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.
Lord, we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord, if you want to know.
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.
No, not just for some, oh, but just for everyone.

    These words reminds me of mother Teresa when she said the only poverty is loneliness. Love is about caring, sharing good and bad, laugh together cry together. I got wisdom at the age of 40, the sweetest person is not your friend. But the person who corrects you when you wrong and warns you about danger is the true friend we often push aside. Strange but true. The nice person wants to compete with you – ask you too many personal questions – award, but false. Remember when someone ask you personal questions they only have hidden agendas. They say there is no fool like an old fool.
    Be wise and say I don't feel comfortable with your questions, or that is personal. Distance yourself from these losers because that's all they are losers.
