Edward Tulane's Journey to Empathy
Lyrics by Suzy Red, Sung by Ted Newman

Verse 1:
I'm a rabbit made of china,
Regal, proud, aloof,
I'm owned by little Abilene
And I need no more proof
That I am, oh, so special,
In every single way
With my expensive wardrobe
And loving care each day.


Verse 2:
I'm Edward Tulane, the rabbit,
Who sees myself the best.
Though I am loved by Abilene
I care not for the rest.
I am set right at the table
So I can watch them dine.
But it's only my reflection
That I consider fine.

Chorus:
The miraculous journey
To empathy
Has lots of obstacles, you can't see,
But there are big smiles at the end,
When you find a friend in me.
'Cause I hurt when you hurt,
I cry because you cry.
I mourn when you're sad,
I grunt when you try.
I feel what you feel,
I'm your buddy, you see.
And you found a friend in me.

Chorus:
The miraculous journey
To empathy
Has lots of obstacles, you can't see,
But there are big smiles at the end,
When you find a friend in me.
'Cause I hurt when you hurt,
I cry because you cry.
I mourn when you're sad,
I grunt when you try.
I feel what you feel,
I'm your buddy, you see.
And you found a friend in me.
