Facets of the Jewel lyrics

Our lives are connected
Like facets of a jewel
The reluctance of a wise man
The wisdom of a fool
They border on each other
Sometimes kind, sometimes cruel

Our llives are connected
Llike patches on a quilt
Sewn by coincidence
Some borders edges in guilt
Every choice we make
Creates a different pattern still

And who's to say the universe
Is but a single thought
Contained within the mind of God
And who's to say it's not
And if love is the lesson
Then how's the teacher taught

Our lives are connected
Like waves upon a shore
Sometimes with a whisper
Sometimes with a roar
Sometimes we think we leave no trace
But sometimes less is more

Our lives are connected
Like pages in a book
The past is the present
Through which the future looks
Like leaves on a river
Like ripples in a brook
