I THINK I CAN HEAR YOU
By Carole King

What must i do, how can I serve you
Is it true what I do is the way to be near you
I'm listening, though sometimes I can't hear you.

Looikng around fills me with wonder
At the way you can keep this old world running smoothly
Thinking of you always seems to soothe me

I know you're probably not a aman or a woman
or a time or a season
But I'm here and life is dear
And I guess that's a good enough reason to say

Just let me do what you put me here to
Let me be what you want me to be
And I hope it'll cheer you
I'm listening and I think I can hear you

Even when I thought I didn't believe
You believed in me
And everyone is a part of you
And anyone can know you
All they've got to do is be
I'm listening, and I think I can hear you.

    What this means to me is that the writer is listening for
    her higher power (or God) to show her the path she was meant
    to walk. It is a perfect example of what prayer ought to be:
    simple reflection, gratitude for life, but listening for the voice
    that tells you how to find true happiness and right relationship...
    It's perfect.
