I couldn't resist another song from the same album, Seal's second. For me, this one speaks to many issues, many ideas. Maybe it will for you too.
I wash my faith in dirty water,
Cause it gives my mind a little order.
And I play that game, just like I should do.
But my whole world, slips away.
I live my life, I live it slowly.
And I take my time, I'm in no hurry, yea... I'm livin'...
And when I go then I would surely.
I would dance with a total stranger,
And hold them in my arms.
Hell, there could be no danger if I open up,
Cause when the cryin' starts so,
If I chant for happiness,
Maybe that will make me feel better
I can't change my ideals, I can't lose my desire
Ohh, if I chant for happiness maybe that will make me feel better
I'd be a newborn friend for the world.
Well I wash my face in dirty water.
For life I have no order.
Know that feeling when you've tried so hard to make your way out,
So you search for the breed of the problems there lying,
Deep down in the soul.
Even if, they never end,
There's a whole bunch of reasons, tryin' to get out
But they can't make it out of the door.
Ohh, I know the reason,
I'm not enough.
There's nothing more... But,
If I chant for happiness, maybe that will make me feel better.
I can't changes my ideals, I can't put out the fire.
Ohh, if I chant for happiness, maybe that will bring us together,
For the better...
I can't changes my ideals, I can't lose my desire.
I'm just a newborn friend for the world...
Just a newborn friend for the world...
I'll be your newborn friend and I'll...
Sing loud... Sing loud... Sing loud... my friend
Gonna sing louder sing loud sing loud my friend
To my friend my friend and I...
I'll sing love, sing loud, sing a little louder of my friend.
Ohh, my darlin friend my friend my friend
If you understand everything, some things are just as they are. If you understand nothing, things are still just as they are.
