This song can be adapted for cued fill-in-the-blank songwriting, piggyback songwriting, or lyric analysis.
Cued Fill-In-The-Blank: Pass out prepared lyrics and writing utensils and explain what the group will be doing, including their main goals while receiving therapy and what is to be addressed during this intervention. Several of the blanks to be filled in may be better addressed through group response, and then some should be individualized. The intervention may conclude with a metaphor about a pearl, the title of the song, and how we all have tough exteriors but if we let people in they see the pearl in us and the light that is who we are and that we all need to harness it and love that part of ourselves.
