sorry again for the late posting folks! it was a busy president's day weekend (and also the weekend that i celebrated the day of my birth exactly 25 years ago!!!!), so i hope you all enjoy the song i came across today as i was looking for a happy song to blog about. i found this one to be quite catchy so here goes... Naim is a french-israeli singer and songwriter who is relatively new to the "official" music scene w/her first album (in a man's womb) released in 2001. You can listen to more music of hers HERE. i really enjoy her thus far, and she has this sort of regina spektor appeal about her, but in a less abrasive manner. as far as this particular song is concerned, i really enjoy it's lightness...it's light weight...calorie free if you will. it just makes me feel like i'm riding my bike down a really big hill, feeling the breeze go across my face and just feelin care-free. this is how i feel after another year on this earth. this weekend, i celebrated my 25th birthday with my roommate, my girlfriend, and some other close friends. and as i begin my first week being a quarter of a century old, i enter it feeling refreshed, alive, and feelin rather content....and this song is helping me glide into another year of growth, learning, and love.
so, i hope you enjoy it as much as i do!
Yael Naim::New Soul
I'm a new soul.
I came to this strange world hoping I could learn a bit ‘bout how to give and take.
But since I came here...felt the joy and the fear.....finding myself making every possible mistake.
I'm a young soul in this very strange world hoping I could learn a bit ‘bout what is true and fake.
But why all this hate?
Try to communicate.
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make.
This is a happy end.
'course you don't understand.
Everything you have done......
why's everything so wrong?
This is a happy end.
Come and give me your hand.
I'll take you far away.
