Musik, dag 3: en låt som gör dig glad

Postat Friday, April 8, 2011 om Kultur

Musik i allmänhet gör mig glad. Ofta kan väldigt intrikat musik få mig att le, lite sådär småsvår musik helt enkelt. Samtidigt är texter väldigt viktiga för mig, och här kommer en låt som i all sin enkelhet har ett budskap som helt enkelt får mig hel-glad. One world. Our world.

Samael, On Earth, och ett bevis på att man inte behöver göra det så svårt för sig för att göra en bra låt, varken textmässigt eller musikmässigt.

Before we could talk we were singing
Before we could run we were dancing
Life is short but not a day is lost
The world goes round and round
And we go on and on

Dancing with a hidden tribe
Learning to move and fly
Touching the sky with our hands
Longing to love to understand
Dancing with a hidden tribe
Learning to move and fly
Touching the sky with our hands
Longing to love to understand

Dancing with a hidden tribe

Longing to love to understand
Dancing with a hidden tribe
Learning to move and fly
Touching the sky with our hands
Longing to love to understand

Dancing with a hidden tribe
Learning to move and fly
Touching the sky with our hands
Longing to love to understand
Dancing with a hidden tribe
Learning to move and fly
Touching the sky with our hands
Longing to love to understand
