Turn Around

Turn-Around-LacingEverything you need, you already have. Isn’t that the saying. But we wondered what it really meant. Rather than searching for someone to validate what we already knew, what if all we really have to do was . . . just turn around to find the answers.

Mistakenly, we pretend that the questions are about the future, so we need to look “forward” into the unknown and divine the answers. But what if the answers are carried within our DNA, or soul? Maybe if we just examine where we came from and why we came here, we would have everything we need. So, we decided to look calmly within rather than forward, and magically, many answers appeared.



Well there you go again
God knows where you’ve been
What on earth are you looking to find

No matter where you go
Doesn’t feel like home
You’re just wasting all of your precious time

If you only turn around
What you search for is right here
Already found
But you are so busy leaving
In your haste
You don’t hear me
Won’t take time to turn around

What on earth are you still looking to find

If you would only turn around
What you search for is right here
Already found

So when you’ve had enough leaving
Weary and worn
Then you might just hear me
When you finally turn around

What you’re looking for is here
Already found
Waiting when you turn around
