about

The Greatest Whole is King Khan's first book!!! COMING SOON... This song was recorded ages ago. It's a healing hymn for all of you folks out there... It comes from the deepest parts of my soul, about the difficult journeys I have been on myself as a witness, a victim of abuse and trauma and as a father who saved his soul by becoming the parent I always wanted to be. Change is possible if you want it! Fight the urge to repeat the abuses that you suffered. Use humour, unconditional love and art as your weapons and your play things... Let's just fuck it all and do the COSMIC DANCE.... 1,2,3,4.... OI OI OI...

lyrics

The Greatest Whole
by a. a. khan/ saba-lou khan

D
take a good look at your reflection
ask the mirror one last thing
Bm
can you see how much affection
to her table did you bring
does she live walkin on eggshells
and praying for some rain
to dance upon this world of hurt
and wash away her pain

D
does she save you from yourself
are you your own ball of shame
Bm
do you give her all your wealth
or just fan your fiery flames

Am
will you walk thru this life
C
holding on to her hand
G
or is she the cane that holds you up
F
while you fail to understand

Em G
cuz your only as good as the woman you love (x2)

from the wife that receives you
whose breathe breathes into you
to the mistress who deceives you
ruins lives and destroys you
now look into that mirror
and stare into yourself
can you stand there without flinching
or must you look at something else

now the hurt that you gave others
comes back twice fold
and the words will wring inside you
as the worlds around you burn

chorus:
G
from the mother that holds you
F
that nurses and scolds you
C
to the lover that bathes you
G
and wants to invade you
G
i'll tell you one thing
F
if this life starts to sting
C
and the world stops to sing
G
cuz you ain't learned a thing

Em G
you're only as good as the woman you love x2



CHORUS

(played like VERS #2)
you said you gave her your youth
in return she gave you her life
who broke her back nursing four
while you called her a cheatin wife
the rain washed away the footsteps
that lead her to that door
that housed the whore that stole your love
who'll beg forever more
for mercy and forgiveness
float down stream hand in hand
you no good dirty rotten
scoundrel of a man

from the wife that receives you
whose breathe breathes into you
to the mistress who deceives you
ruins lives and destroys you
now look into that mirror
and stare into yourself
can you stand there without flinching
or must you look at something else

chorus:
G
from the mother that holds you
F
that nurses and scolds you
C
to the lover that bathes you
G
and wants to invade you
G
i'll tell you one thing
F
if this life starts to sting
C
and the world stops to sing
G
cuz you ain't learned a thing

Em G
you're only as good as the woman you love x2

Em G
cuz your only as good as the woman you love
