Little Things

Story Behind The Song

A friend gave me a picture of a time we'd spent with a group of people at a park that was a particularly good time. My friend framed the picture and gave it to me out of the blue. It was a frustrating day, and it completely turned things around for me. It put a punctuation point on the positive effect we can have on each other. Thanks Annie.

Lyrics

LITTLE THINGS
copyright 1988 by Steve Mason

-Verse 1-
Little things they mean a lot; Little things you do
Little things they mean a lot; when you help somebody through
A storm in their life; Little things mean a lot

Like the card that you sent to me and the message it conveyed
So timely in arriving, to make frustration fade
From the day gone by; Little things mean a lot

-Bridge-
I?ve searched for years, and I rarely shed a tear
There?s no one I hold as dear
It?s all that you have done that?s brought me hear

-Verse 2-
Surprises come unexpectedly, like a present from a friend
It?s the thought that counts but so much more
Thoughts they never end
Loving thoughts never end, Little things mean a lot

Now I?ve been off to find myself, not that I was lost
But recently the daily gain has not been worth the cost
Or the lack of satisfaction, Little things mean a lot

-Bridge-
I?ve searched for years, and I rarely shed a tear
There?s no one I hold as dear
It?s all that you have done that?s brought me hear

-Verse 1-
Little things they mean a lot; Little things you do
Little things they mean a lot; when you help somebody through
A storm in their life; Little things mean a lot

-Ride Out-
Little things mean a lot? oh they do
Little things really mean a lot
Little things, nothin? but the thought
Little things
