From the recording Close Enough to Walk
I'm a firm believer in my "inner voice". That little voice that prompts you to do or to avoid things...even tho it may not be logical. It's the Guiding Hand of the universe trying to help you along life's way. Sooner or later, it will guide you to love and happiness!
