Take care of the one that fills your soul

Take care of the one you love,
Take care of the one you need,
Take care of the one who needs you most,
Take care of the one you love.

Take care of the one you love,
Take care of the one you need,
Take care of the one who needs you most,
The one far from home, the one that fills your soul.
Take care of the one that holds your hand,
When it’s cold.

See it. Hear it. Feel it.

See it. Hear it. Feel it.

[Jaguar]
