Have often said that modern technology has served to play havoc with face to face communication. Anybody see smartphone burnout looming somewhere on the horizon?



DESIRE TO CONNECT

c2020 Brian Beecher


When thereís a desire to connect
In person or by phone
Sharing ideas and feelings are what
Keeps us going day to day

Having the extra piece of cake
Or the whole bowl of popcorn
Go ahead you can get back on track
When you have friends to pave the way

You could one day be looking
For an escape hatch
As feelings of restlessness
Come to the surface

Donít do anything hasty
Youíll regret later on
For something new and exciting
To really turn you on

When thereís a desire to connect
In person or by phone
Sharing ideas and feelings are what
Keeps us going day to day

It may feel like the future
Is fraught with uncertainty
You could be mourning a loss
Itís okay to cry and grieve

Once youíve had a good cry
Or whatever you need to do
Move forward with some good friends
And they will comfort you

When thereís a desire to connect
In person or by phone
Sharing ideas and feelings are what
Keeps us going day to day

Having the extra piece of cake
Or the whole bowl of popcorn
Go ahead you can get back on track
When you have friends to pave the way

You may want to go off
And have time for yourself
To think about life and responsibilities
A calm presence can help

Those around you breathe easier
And may come back for more
You now have the opportunity
To dig deep and explore

When thereís a desire to connect
In person or by phone
Sharing ideas and feelings are what
Keeps us going day to day

Having the extra piece of cake
Or the whole bowl of popcorn
Go ahead you can get back on track
When you have friends to pave the way

Is there something or someone
Thatís now holding you back
Conversations with others
Can have a great impact

There are many people out there
Who nurture us in their own way
When you find yourself some good friends
It is a brighter day

When thereís a desire to connect
In person or by phone
Sharing ideas and feelings are what
Keeps us going day to day

Having the extra piece of cake
Or the whole bowl of popcorn
Go ahead you can get back on track
When you have friends to pave the way
