Song lyrics.

Post by bimbow on 2nd April 2015, 01:47

I came across this recently and I'm afraid I cannot make much sense of it.  Art or bollocks.  Or in between?

(No Googling, please.)

Butterflies begin,
from having been a larva,
As a child is born,
from being in a mother's womb,
But how many times,
have you wished you were some other;
Someone than who you are.

Yet who's to say that if all were uncovered,
You will like what you see;
You can only be you,
as I can only be me.

Flowers can not bloom,
until it is their season,
As we would not be here,
unless it was our destiny,
But how many times,
have you wished to be in spaces,
Times, places than what you were.

Yet who's to say with unfamiliar faces,
You could any more be;
Loving you that you'd see,
You can only be you,
as I can only be me.



Definitely not just for skeptics, and we've moved. Yes, again. Sadly necessary. .....https://skepticsforum.co.uk

Well, of course, I had to Google.  pirat  nuts  .... to discover that these are lyrics from one of Eva Cassidy's songs.




As to what they mean? ......  shrug   ... I think what's she's saying there is - you cannot fight destiny ...
Things are as they are meant to be and, whether you like it or not, you cannot change your destiny.  
The operative(?) - Just be yourself and don't try to be something that you're not.
(That's what I take from it anyway.) sunny

I came across the recording on Facebook last night, sung by Eva, but apparently written by Stevie Wonder.

Not a fan of the lyrics, though I think I understand the simple message:
Disatisfied with life and asking himself "is this all there is"? Wanting to be someone else, somewhere else, but knowing he's stuck with what he's got.
Not the most inspiring song.



Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.
