"If You Feel" as written by Marty Balin and Gary Blackman....
If You Feel

If you feel like china breaking
If you feel like laughing
Break china laughing
Break china laughing, laughing, laughing

If you feel like leaves falling
If you feel like smiling
Fall leaves smiling
Fall leaves smiling, smiling, smiling

If you feel like love making
If you feel like flying
Make love flying
Make love flying, flying, flying

Got down
Not the first time you know
Got down
Got up to go

    General CommentA purely hedonistic outlook on life. An observation at how serious we can take life to such an extreme that at some point, you have to let go, just let go and enjoy it for no other reason than just experiencing the pure pleasure of the moment and to laugh with Hesse's immortals at the ridiculousness of it all.

    Simply: don't take things too seriously, let go like a leaf falling from a tree and enjoy it

    General CommentBreak China laughin'!

    I don't think Marty is talking about hedonism, precisely, because hedonism implies responsibilities, a seriousl life, that one is neglecting, as I understand the term.

    He's saying, just BE. In other words, Zen, not hedonism. A fine point, and one that I would never belabor.
