Hugs for you, too!

Hugs
by Dean Walley

It's wonderous
what a hug can do
A hug can cheer you
when you're blue
A hug can say
"I love you"
or "Gee, I hate to see you go."
A hug is "Welcome back again."
And "great to see you! Where"ve you been?"
A hug can soothe a small child's pain
and bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug! There's no doubt about it--
We scarcely could survive without it!
A hug delights and warms and charms,
It must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers.
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers.
And chances are your favorite aunts
Love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them. Puppies love them.
Heads of state are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier,
And make your travels so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of 'em
The more you give the more there's more of 'em
So stretch those arms without delay
AND GIVE SOMEONE A HUG TODAY!!!


 

 



The video, shot at Pitt Street Mall in Sydney, was a gift from Sick Puppies frontman Shimon Moore for his friend, Juan Mann ( a big-hearted eccentric known for his unconditional free hugs). Shot and edited by Moore, it features a collage of "Free Hugs" moments, underscored by the Sick Puppies tune "All The Same" and was intended to cheer him up through one of life's rough patches.

Just seven weeks after its release on Youtube.com it generated more than seven million hits and was at #1 for several days, it has now made the front page of "Most viewed" videos of all time.




Song Title: All The Same

I don't mind where you come from
As long as you come to me
I don't like illusions I can't see
Them clearly

I don't care no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually
What you'll do

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Hours slide and days go by
Till you decide to come
And in between it always seems too long
All of a sudden

And I have the skill, yeah I have the will
To breathe you in while I can
However long you stay
Is all that I am

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's always the same

Wrong or right
Black or white
If I close my eyes
It's all the same

In my life
The compromise
I close my eyes
It's all the same

Go ahead say it you're leaving
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same
