Help Yourself

We have ourselves to rely on to make things what they are and better for all surrounding us. It is not always easy but it can be something we are reminded of in a song that speaks to our heart, whether that comes from the strings of a ukelele or from the sound of the ocean or wind in the ohias. It’s always there for us to hear it and feel it.

Help Yourself
– by David Elias

Morning comes before the sun
I hear that song
I better help myself
I better help myself

Reflections smile
Behind the miles
I hear that song
I better help myself
I better help myself

Lord you know it comes and goes
I feel that song
I better help myself
I better help myself

Ain’t no one knows the lonely lows
When you hear that song
You better help yourself
You better help yourself
Help yourself
You better help yourself
