None So Blind
This was originally written as a 'Ray Charles' song -- similar (in story, anyway) to 'You Don't Know Me' Ian Ferrin took it into a contemporary spiritual direction, an uplifting tune in contrast to the bittersweet words.

Story behind the song
This was originally written as a "Ray Charles" song -- similar (in story, anyway) to "You Don't Know Me" Ian Ferrin took it into a contemporary spiritual direction, an uplifting tune in contrast to the bittersweet words. This song is a rough demo -- it's not a "finished" version, but good enough to hear.
Lyrics
(1) Sure we walk, side by side A space between our foolish hands An inch that feels a mile wide We walk right by our promised lands Nature’s beauty fills our eyes But we don’t stop to recognize There are none so blind as those who will not see None so blind as you and me (2) Now we stop, not a word A silence on our foolish lips A quiet that is barely stirred Our powers of speech in full eclipse Nature’s beauty fills the air But we don’t even know it’s there There are none so blind as those who will not see None so blind as you and me (3) Now we part, walk away A curse upon our foolish hearts A wind that blows us far astray Like sailors lost without their charts Nature’s beauty paints the sky But we just watch the world go by There are none so blind as those who will not see None so blind as you and me
