Song Description

Random acts of kindness are a good thing -- for the receiver AND for the giver.

Story Behind the Song

I know a man who randomly gives away $100 bills whenever he sees someone -- on the street, for instance -- that he thinks needs some help. He has given away many thousands of dollars this way. And as with true philanthropy, he desires his gifts to be as anonymous as possible. I admire him.


Random acts of kindness, be they big or small
Are like a gift from Heaven on both ends
I thought I knew you, but I didn't know you at all
Now that I know your secret, I see what you intend

Now I know you did not want anyone to know
And I found out quite by mistake
The last thing you want is to bask in the glow
Of your loving goodness for goodness' sake

Extravagant gestures are the measure of you
Extravagant gestures; treasures to the rescue
Extravagant gestures; such beautiful things to do
And all you want is to be the only one who would ever know

Your secret, my friend, is forever safe with me
I'll sing your praises loud but with no identity
Life not as it is but as it could be
Love holds the key; let kindness set you free


There is no greater high than doing what you can
To ease the pain of a stranger, you don't need a plan


The only one who would ever know
