If only we could solve our lives as easily as we another's.
We'd tell them truths, first one thing and then another.
Each problem we'd too clearly see as simple as day
And each solution would b e the perfect one to say.
We'd know X is done because of W, and further back
We'd understand how to keep everything on track.
It's so obvious here from the outside looking in,
So simple that we can tell our answers with a grin
And pretend like shrinks that we know the brain
And how people work though it's all in vain --
Underneath understanding likes the human heart
And accepting that one fact is a damn good start
As we try to act on the advice we give to others
And eat words we from high places preach another.
