"Kindness" as written by and Ryan Adams....
If you're so kind
Can you let down your hand
Can you let down your hand
If you're so kind
If you're so strong
Can you shelter the weak
Will you listen as the strangers speak
Bring them calm

Kindness don't ask for much
But an open mind
Kindness can cure a broken heart
Honey are you feelin' kind
Do you believe in love
Do you believe in love

If you're so kind
Can you let down your hand
Will you try and understand
When it goes wrong
Days come and gone
And it's been said and been done
I will shelter you with my love
And my forgiveness

Kindness don't ask for much
But an open mind
Kindness can cure a broken heart
Honey are you feelin' kind
Do you believe in love
Do you believe in love

Kindness don't ask for much
But an open mind
Kindness can cure a broken heart
Honey are you feelin' kind
Do you believe in love
Do you believe in love

    General CommentI think it's about how far off track a human can get, in the absence of love, that most basic of our sentiments --- without receiving, and being able to receive affection, appreciation, acceptance, we can get so cold and hard inside, and feel so distant from life and other people. And that can feel terminal. But that can all be turned around, melted, in just a moment or two, by the right gesture, the right words or the right touch from the right person. It can all come flooding back, with just a little kindness.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy forgiving a girl for cheating on him. "Kindness can cure a broken heart" and "I will shelter you with my love and forgiveness" are the lines to look at in particular.
