Musical & Pensive Moment

  It has been a little while since I have injected a musical spot.  I was listening to one of Savage Garden's songs called Affirmation.  It has been around for a few years but I never paid close attention to the lyrics before.  The song has a message.  Although I don't necessarily agree with everything said in the lyrics, I appreciate the promotion of the human spirit that it contains.  If it wasn't for the ability to think for ourselves, we would, indeed, be a very dull and uninteresting people.  Not to mention much less evolved.  I am not saying that everything we are outspoken about is correct.  There needs to be opposition in all things so that we can learn to make correct choices and see both sides of an issue.  We can try and understand other's viewpoints, where "they are coming from" if you will, without necessarily changing our own opinions and values.
  Enough with my yammering on.  Now is the time to enjoy the music.  Click on Affirmation for the video and follow along with the lyrics.


I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self-esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone
I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

[repeat ]
