Jimmy Cliff – If I Follow My Mind Lyrics

If I follow my mind
I’ll never go wrong
I would a sing that song
It wouldn’t take so long
Never, never could do wrong
Hey, yeah
If I follow my heart
I’d live by emotions
In my every notion
It would lead me astray now
Each and every day now
Hey, hey
If I follow my heart
My mind is a fine mind
My mind is a right mind
My mind is a clear mind, clear mind
If I follow my mind
I’ll never go wrong
I wanna sing that song
It wouldn’t take so long
Never, never could do wrong
Hey, hey
If I follow my mind
My mind is a fine mind
My mind is a right mind
My mind by divine mind, divine mind
If I follow my mind
(Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ummmm)
If I follow my heart
I’d live by emotions
In my every notion
And it would lead me astray now
Each and every day now
Hey, hey
If I follow my mind
I’ll never go wrong
I would a sing that song
It wouldn’t take so long
Never, never could do wrong
If I follow my mind now
If I follow my mind
If I follow my mind now now now
Follow, follow my mind
If I follow my mind now
Never, never could do wrong
If I follow my mind now now now
If I follow my mind
If I follow my mind now now now
If I follow my mind now
If I follow my mind

Fat Joe & Remy Ma – Dreamin Lyrics (feat. Stephanie Mills)

I’m Paid in Full as we speakin’
Not Rich Porter, just one rich Puerto Rican
A nigga nice with them heat stand
And got him high off dope like The Weeknd
That means I’m all the way up
A nigga couldn’t fall even if they drug him in cuffs
I’m prayin’ for better days than Freddie Gray’s
Where Lil Wayne and Birdman can hug and embrace
And little niggas is coming of age
Take a wrong step, pop! ‘Cause his mother’s engaged
[Chorus: Stephanie Mills]
Fast cars and flashy clothes
Night life is all we know
This life was meant for me
It’s destiny
Yes, I must be dreamin’, dreamin’, dreamin’
Gets me where I wanna be, dreamin’
Yes, I must be dreamin’, dreamin’, dreamin’
Gets me where I wanna be, dreamin’
Yes, I must be dreamin’
[Verse 2: Remy Ma]
When I copped the pink Benz
I swear they started to hate
At 21 some bum nigga cut me right in my face
They brought that up when I caught my case
Bitch I did 6 years, 4 months and 5 days
And they wonder why I’m crazy
I blame the 80s for turning my generation into crack babies
Used to be in the cell dreamin’ I was home
Now I’m home, dreamin’ I’m back in the cell
I went from Castle to Beverly to Bedford Hills
I’m a prime example of keeping it too real
Had somebody asked me if I learned my lesson
Told him, “Actually prison made me more aggressive
I still smack a chick quick, no questions
But now I leave my handprint so she don’t get the wrong impression”
They say all I talk about is jail
f*ck you meanin’ that’s my reality
I guess you just be dreamin’
[Chorus: Stephanie Mills]
Fast cars and flashy clothes
Night life is all we know
This life was meant for me
It’s destiny
Yes, I must be dreamin’, dreamin’, dreamin’
Gets me where I wanna be, dreamin’
Yes, I must be dreamin’, dreamin’, dreamin’
Gets me where I wanna be, dreamin’
Yes, I must be dreamin’ [Chorus: Stephanie Mills]
Fast cars and flashy clothes
Night life is all we know
This life was meant for me
It’s destiny
Yes, I must be dreamin’, dreamin’, dreamin’
Gets me where I wanna be, dreamin’
Yes, I must be dreamin’, dreamin’, dreamin’
Gets me where I wanna be, dreamin’
Yes, I must be dreamin’
[Verse 1: Fat Joe]
I kick back, put the key in ignition
‘Cause niggas wasn’t seeing my vision
Got a whole trunk full of white, on my feet is the Pippens
And the loud, make it easy to listen
My ambitions (My ambitions, my ambitions)
A nigga knockin’ that pot dough
What you expect when your idol is Pablo?

Keizer – Wie Ben Jij Lyrics (feat. Mr. Polska & Je Broer)

Polska]
Crazyboy para flirting met de lala’s
f*cking up je vriendin achterbank van panda
Chilling in de flirt beetje sex op de couch
Headshot bang bang oprotte uit me huis
De blik is koud als halve liter in de hand
Tattie’s in bikini, ze denken het is strand
Winter uit me ogen, vuur uit me mondje
Vinger in de poes en een piemel in d’r kontje
Ik ros ze als een blondje, druk ze als een cd
Prop ze in de schuur, neuk ze in de wc
Ik ben die viezerik, koude man oostblok
Klootzak uit de buurt, Siema wordt maar boos toch
Ze mag me niet maar wil dat ik in d’r zit
Dus trek ik heel haar binnenste naar buitere
Ze zegt Polska waarom ben je klootzak
Charmant leg ik lach ha, blame it on the oostblok

Dokter checkt men tracks en zegt dat ik sick ben
Ik weet niks van Londen maar je weet dat ik Big Ben
Niggers spelen grappig ik vind die niggers belachelijk
Ik geef mezelf een 10 die andere niggers vind ik achterlijk
Jullie komen tekort als een lilliputter
Als je het hebt over rappen en overtreffen dat gaat hier never niet lukken
Baas praktijken. [Mr. Maar mijn spits werken nog
Ook al had je 10 stokken en een trommel sloeg je nergens op

En zij komt hier vraag me niet of ik kom
Buig voor je sensei en maak het af met een ippon
Zwaar op men grind ik ben bezig met iets groots
Jij vermoord niks en ik maak al die beats dood
Boaz van de beats, Nindo, Nouveau Riche hier
Tappers praten groot, ho kan het dat ik niet zie
Ik hoor zo vele samenwerken maar dat doe ik liever niet
Zeiden me ik zie je aan de top maar ik zie ze niet
Sorry voor collega’s vanaf nu zijn ze werkloos
Ik heb boast en ik versier meids als een kerstboom
Elke vrouw in de buurt ken ik van de binnenkant
Voel mezelf de shit met meer schijt dan je dikke darm

Chiiild – Count Me Out Lyrics

And all I ever did was dodge the punches
You’ll look like a clown when I come back
[Chorus]
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin)
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin)
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin) [Chorus]
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin)

Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin)
[Verse 1]
Can’t feel my hands, but I got you
What’s mine, that’s yours, ya
Head underground, got work to do
And I know in my soul, that I’m on to something good
I’m in repair, looking for truth
And I’ll find my footing soon
Pave a road that leads to you
[Chorus]
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin)
Don’t count me out, ’cause I’ll come back (Swingin, swingin)

[Verse 2]
Try put me down from where I’m at
I’m up now, you still know the way to
Put me on the ground, don’t make me snap
But I don’t need your faith, I don’t need nothing
You won’t see me frown, the f*ck is that?

Clueso – Strassen Sind Leer Lyrics

Niemand packt was an oder etwas aus. Die Straße nichts wert, niemand wehrt sich, kein Widerstand und doch voller Menschen menschenleer
(Chorus)
Die Straßen sind leer Enttäuscht von einem Bild, das Litfaßsäulen schmückt, rückt schon der Nächste nach, der uns noch mehr verspricht. Im festen Glauben, danach, wenn nichts passiert, hilft gegen die Ahnung, außer Reden, ausreden nichts. Alle im Bann, all die Stimmen vergeben. Keiner hebt die Hand, alle lehn’ sich an
(Chorus)
Die Straßen sind leer, nichts geht, keiner geht mehr raus. Unter ‘m Sand sickert das Gegengift.

Napoleon Da Legend – The Other Side Lyrics (feat. Crazy DJ Bazarro)

where snakes achieve
Honorable folks in line, waiting for a plate to eat
Killing our great minds no safe places to speak
The only way to go is down once u facing ya peak
Ancient teachings black and brown getting racist treatment
Chances you might get judged cause of ya facial features
We pray to Jesus and pray to Allah we pray to god
And read the Buddha, Siddhartha was a straight shooter
We was born sick, half of our vision is glitched
Looking to some external stimulation to fix
With a fixation on the rich, they stealing culture from the poor
I was born in war that why I’m a soldier to the core
[Napoleon Da Legend hook]
While they was thinking I was M.I.A
I was staying sucka free I was just making my way
All I wanted was a glimpse of what it be like
To be on the other side experience what it feel like
While they was thinking I was M.I.A
I was staying sucka free I was just making my way
All I wanted was a glimpse of what it be like
To be on the other side experience what it feel like
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
Pristine water swimming with the stingrays
Been brave walking to the beat of my own Jembe
Soul of Kinte, masterful sensei with a twin blade
I’m in shape strong fist to the jaw make his chin break
Disappointed when I see a friend flake but such is life tho
I kept going despite of warning signs I’m such a psycho
But life is short I’m a speed thru it like Schumacher
Live my truth proper keep dropping these jewels throughout the process
And move passed the gossip and the politics
Breathing in some oxygen from exotic places rocking crowds again
Anti-establishment they capping then be cashing in
And when you ask my fee, all my struggle got to factor in
And while most were faking a few stayed real! [Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
They fabricated lies after sabotaging lives
You read it in Bible psalms this climate was prophecized
The   earth   is crying the   forest is burning
Insomniac middle of the   night tossing and turning
What’s my place in this whirlwind? And we can tell who playing games and got a “2K” feel
I was drinking whiskey they were drinking kool-aid still
Throughout the chaos only see the truth when you lay still
[Napoleon Da Legend hook]
While they was thinking I was M.I.A
I was staying sucka free I was just making my way
All I wanted was a glimpse of what it be like
To be on the other side experience what it feel like
While they was thinking I was M.I.A
I was staying sucka free I was just making my way
All I wanted was a glimpse of what it be like
To be on the other side experience what it feel like

Bixi Blake – Mamacita Freestyle Lyrics

Yaşıyo’m bi’ ince görüntü kaybı

Yok hiçbi’ kaygım, dedi; “Gözün aydın.”

Tamponu büyütsün güneşe yatıp
Sen geçerken yanında şaplağı atıp

Bak bütün bu caddeyi kana bularım
Patlarsa yedeği var mı zulanın, ha
Yoksa bi’ Kadifekale yapalım
Minibüs turdaysa bu yollar bizim
Menisküs olcak lan koşmaktan dizim
Kuliste bekliyo’ hermanom elinde AK-47’yle güzelim
Sor bana çözeyim sorununu

Kristian Hoffman – Tender Even Then Lyrics (feat. Maria McKee)

And if we’re both on tenterhooks
Again, can we be tender even then? And if we’re both on tenterhooks
Again, can we be tender even then? Maybe that’s not so smart to do
So if I hurt you now and make you bleed, my sullen face is guaranteed
To be as stupid as it looks. You trusted me with something true. What’s unbecoming I become
And so with each and every awkward kiss, I pray a silent prayer that this
Can’t be as stupid as it looks. I slam the door upon your thumb. One and one is two in some arithmetic
That addition feels like some cheap parlor trick
So as I sweep the glitter up again – I can be tender
Now I have faith that blood congeals, and if the blister breaks, it heals
So darling, even if you disagree, I found out inadvertently
It’s not as stupid as it looks. And if we’re both on tenterhooks
Again, can we be tender even then?

In the way that we play in a passionate way, boy
Not a thing you can do, ’cause I’m coming for you, boy
Oh, yeah
In the way that we play in a passionate way, boy
Not a thing you can do, ’cause I’m coming for you, boy [Chorus]
Sweet joy when a girl meets a boy
Natural chemistry, oh, better believe it’s time
Read my mind
Seek and you will find
Oh, it’s love, nothing more
What you waiting for? I’m yours, oh, boy
[Verse 2]
Oh, no, you’re everywhere that I go
You’re in my head again, oh, stuck in my head again
Full force, means you’re taking her course
No need for hide-and-seek
I’ll let you find me
Loving like personified
I’m so into him, oh
Oh, God, it’s glistening
[Chorus]
Pure joy when a girl meets a boy
Natural chemistry, oh, better believe it’s time
Read my mind
Seek and you will find
Oh, it’s love, nothing more
What you waiting for? I’m yours, oh, boy
Read my mind
Seek and you will find
Oh, it’s love, nothing more
What you waiting for? [Verse 1]
So right, I could make a baby tonight
Throw my life away, oh
I’ll die another day
Feels   like   I’ve got nothing   to hide
Serendipity, I noticed you noticed   me
Those eyes caught by surprise
If I look again, oh, what’s gonna happen then?

The Bidyanondo Foundation, previously known for its work with street children, is stepping in to support virus victims and their families. Volunteers hope to promote a "humanitarian approach" to caring for Bangladesh’s ill. They also need mental support.”So it has sent them cards. In another incident, a father died being locked in his room when he returned from work with fever. Shaky COVID response lays bare a decadeslong crisis in governmentOne family abandoned an elderly woman in a forest near their home when they suspected she was infected. But then, solace came in the form of a fruit basket from the Bidyanondo Foundation.There were mangoes, litchis, oranges, apples, lemons, and other food. “We wanted to thank them. But this pandemic is teaching us many new things and showing its teeth,” said Salman Khan Yeasin, a foundation manager.“Actually, in this time of corona, humanity is in a sort fading away. The group – its name means “learn for fun” – has stepped in to build awareness of COVID-19 among families of virus’ victims and the community.Its efforts have been inspired by news reports of neglect of victims, or hostility toward them. One reads: “We become brave to do more [for people] seeing your efforts, we know you will continue this fight to save our lives if we become ill tomorrow.”Bidyanondo’s efforts have been met with gratitude. And there was a get-well card for her father that read, “We are here to stand by you. Loading… This [gift] is a token of love. The family struggled, too, with a lack of money to buy food.She was exhausted. We cannot believe this can happen in a society where relatives usually throng a hospital when someone becomes ill. Other families have refused to take bodies for burial or cremation.The incidents have prompted Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to express her regret in a speech in Parliament.Foundation officials said families should understand how important it is to support those battling COVID-19 when they need it the most.“Those news reports are very shocking. Yeasin said while the foundation’s primary target is to support patients and build awareness, it does not want doctors and other health workers to be forgotten.“Many health workers are staying outside home, away from their families to provide health care,” he said. The Bangladeshi group, which partners with the military and about 80 other groups across the country, has sent about 1,400 fruit baskets since June 1. The family did not take him to a hospital.

Bidyanondo Foundation members assemble care packages for coronavirus patients in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on June 6, 2020. Sumona Khanom appreciated that the foundation “has come forward to help my father.”“I hope,” she said, “they would come forward to help all other fathers.” Our heart goes to you!”The basket was presented by volunteers working for the foundation, established in 2013 and known for its food assistance programs for street children and the poor. But in this case, we are trying to set an example of humanitarian approach,” he said.The group has distributed about 1,400 fruit baskets since it began distributing them on June 1.Bidyanondo depends mostly on crowdfunding.

In controversial move, China passes Hong Kong security law draft

In controversial move, China passes Hong Kong security law draft

China’s legislature passed a draft on Thursday of the national security law that spurred massive protests in Hong Kong last year. Loading… Britain has said it will offer passports and a path to citizenship to as many as 3 million Hong Kong residents. This latest step has been openly criticized by the G-7. June 18, 2020

By AP Staff

Beijing
China’s legislature on Thursday passed a draft of a national security bill for Hong Kong that has been strongly criticized as undermining the semi-autonomous region’s legal and political institutions.The National People’s Congress’ Standing Committee reviewed the bill that covers four categories of crimes: succession, subversion of state power, local terrorist activities, and collaborating with foreign or external foreign forces to endanger national security.No details on the definitions of those crimes or the applicable punishments were given. It also wasn’t clear when the law would be passed in its final version, although Beijing has repeatedly said it is determined to press ahead despite the criticism.The congress moved to enact the legislation at the national level after Hong Kong’s own Legislative Council was unable to do so because of strong local opposition. That leaves the proposed legislation to deal with vaguely defined crimes of a highly political nature along the lines found in mainland China’s Communist Party-dominated system.Earlier this month, Hong Kong’s legislature approved a contentious bill making it illegal to insult the Chinese national anthem after pro-democracy lawmakers boycotted the vote out of protest.Senior opposition figures have also been arrested for taking part in demonstrations and questions have arisen over whether the national security legislation will be used to disqualify pro-democracy candidates in September’s elections for the Beijing-controlled Legislative Council. Beijing passed a draft of the law two days later that outlines four crimes against national security, but doesn’t offer details about punishments for those crimes. “Open debate, consultation with stakeholders, and respect for protected rights and freedoms in Hong Kong are essential.”China’s foreign ministry condemned the G-7 statement, accusing the group of “speaking and pointing fingers freely at Hong Kong affairs.””We strongly deplore and firmly oppose the joint statement issued by the G-7 foreign ministers,” the ministry spokesperson said at a daily briefing. Shaky COVID response lays bare a decadeslong crisis in governmentChina acted following widespread and sometimes violent anti-government protests in the territory last year that Beijing saw as a dangerous campaign to split Hong Kong from the rest of the country.The United States has said that the law if passed will revoke some of the special privileges it grants to Hong Kong after the former British colony was handed over to China in 1997.

Critics say it could severely limit free speech and opposition political activity.Legal experts say Beijing’s justifications for the law are highly debatable. “China’s determination in promoting the national security law in Hong Kong is unwavering.”In Berlin on Thursday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for an “open dialogue” between Europe and China on an investment agreement, climate change, and Africa – “but also on questions of the rule of law and human rights, and not least the future of Hong Kong, where we are concerned that the important principle of ‘one country, two systems’ is being hollowed out more and more.”The Asian financial hub’s highly respected legal system already covers security issues from money laundering to terrorism and cybercrime. Beijing has denounced the moves as interference in its affairs.On Wednesday, the Group of Seven leading economies called on China to reconsider its plans in a joint statement voicing “grave concern regarding China’s decision to impose a national security law on Hong Kong,” adding that it would breach Beijing’s international commitments as well as the territory’s constitution.”It would jeopardize the system which has allowed Hong Kong to flourish and made it a success over many years,” they said.

What the Russian community initially absorbed from Russian media jarred with the Riga government’s message. In Latvia, as in Estonia, much of the Russian-speaking population relies on the slicker, Moscow-based Russian media for information.So it did – at least at first – with the pandemic. Top politicians stepped aside and allowed their medical experts to take the lead. “Basically, everyone collaborated on this.”

Medics to the World, by Aigars Bikše, is a sculpture dedicated to health workers that was funded by donations. Like all of Riga’s hostelries, it was forced to close because of the scourge. Thanks to proactive, consensus leadership, both are emerging from this stage of the pandemic with remarkably little loss of life and lower infection rates than most of Europe, as well as a renewed sense of unity and national pride.Editor’s note: As a public service,   all our coronavirus coverage   is free. “The medical challenge has been won,” she says. One of them is   Dr. Loew.Both Latvia and her sister Baltic republic, Estonia, have good reason to be relieved. Tasked with informing the public, scientists spoke from both sides of the linguistic divide, which helped their countries emerge from this stage of the pandemic with little loss of life.But this new sense of national unity will soon be tested by the pace of economic recovery. That switchover is credited with helping Latvia and Estonia fare better against the coronavirus than much of the rest of Europe. Shaky COVID response lays bare a decadeslong crisis in governmentA major reason for this is that the top politicians of both countries stepped aside and allowed their medical   experts to take the lead in a health crisis.Ever since both countries regained independence in 1991, a legacy of the Soviet era has challenged them: tensions between the ethnic Latvian and Estonian majorities and their Russophile countrymen. But that didn’t happen – just the opposite.Latvia’s Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins credits both the ethnic Latvian and Russian-speaking communities for adhering to the government’s directives on the pandemic.“I suppose you could say it was ironic, and it certainly wasn’t planned,” says Prime Minister Karins. “But at least we are waking up,” says Mr. “And that is a good thing.”Trusted Russian-speaking doctorsAcross the border in Estonia, broad support for the government has also put a spotlight on new faces from the Russian community.

Many stores are still boarded up, including some that will never open again, and sidewalk cafes are far from full capacity.Nevertheless, as this nation of 1.9 million people enjoys a welcome burst of late spring weather, there is an undeniable feeling of collective relief.“It feels as if we are waking up from a bad dream,” says Bernhard Loew, the manager of a luxury hotel in the city’s historic Old Town. “Over 200,000 Latvians have emigrated over the past few decades to seek a more prosperous life abroad,” says sociologist Liene Ozoliņa.

In Russia’s two smallest neighbors, Latvia and Estonia, roughly a quarter of the people are Russian-speaking – an enduring legacy of the Soviet era. Roughly a quarter of the population are Russian speakers, many of whom have family members who were Soviet troops and officials, or are themselves former military. Raudseps, who like the prime minister, is from the diaspora and came to Latvia in 1990. “This year there were just as many flowers at the monument as before, but this year it could be seen that people followed the 2 + 2 rule.”The 2 + 2 rule allows people in public only in pairs, while maintaining a two-meter distance.

In Latvia, for example, both communities have differed over the Latvian government’s recent push to make Latvian the state language.Some expected those tensions to evince themselves once again when the coronavirus struck. News via MoscowCompounding the initial challenge was the fact that the two communities tend to rely on news from disparate sources. Russian speakers tend to consume Moscow-based media. “The message Moscow was sending, both to its own citizens, as well as ‘Russia abroad,’ was that the virus was nothing worse than the flu,” says Uga Dumpis, the government’s head virologist. “But the pandemic has united us.”“The measures we employed to stop the virus were only effective because they entailed our entire society,” he adds. “It will be crucial to see how the government supports the economy and protects ordinary people to prevent another wave of emigration.”

Riga, Latvia
The state   of emergency in this venerable seaside capital   ended last week. “For the first time in three decades we witnessed the birth of a common information sphere to unite the two communities,” said Professor Saarts on his radio show.“When people realized that Russian TV was not talking about the situation in Estonia, they started watching our Estonian Russian-speaking TV,” says Jevgeni Zavadski, a producer for Estonia’s national broadcaster. “The next one is economic.” Latvia’s unemployment rate is about 11%, and more than half of residents say that they have been negatively affected financially by the pandemic. In the midst of a health crisis, Russian speakers in the Baltics switched loyalties to watch local news, helping Latvia and Estonia fare better against the coronavirus. “The differences between the two communities have receded into the background,” says Mr. “I think that in a crisis such as this, it is especially important that objective information is available to both Estonian- and Russian-speaking audiences,” he says.He points to the way the Russian community observed May 9, the day that Russians in both Latvia and Estonia commemorate the end of World War II by gathering at Soviet cenotaphs in both capitals.“Usually the area in front of the Unknown Soldier monument in the Military Cemetery in Tallinn is extremely crowded,” Dr. Popov notes. Loading… At the beginning of the pandemic, “the message that Moscow was sending … “Fortunately everyone realized that the virus was just as serious as we said it was.”Meanwhile, the government’s chief epidemiologist, Jurijs Perevoscikovs, is a Russian speaker – putting Latvia’s two top health experts on different sides of the linguistic divide.“People quickly realized that they had a common enemy,” says Jana Terakova, a broadcaster with Radio Latvia’s service for   Russian speakers.As Martins Lagzdins, the CEO of a Riga advertising firm, put it, “The virus has helped all Latvians realize that at the end of the day we are all in same boat.”Prominent Latvian American journalist Pauls Raudseps agrees.

Sally Klein O’connor – A Savior Is Born Lyrics

In the darkness before morn
The Light of the world was born
In a broken battered barn
The Father revealed His heart
And while the world lay sleeping
In blankets and dreams
Shepherds saw
What wise men had foreseen
Glory to God in the highest
Rejoice my friend(s)
Good will toward all men/God’s mercy descends
A Savior is born/The Lord of Love has come
In Bethlehem/For the hearts of men
As seasons come and go
Sometimes I feel empty and old
Then Your whisper comes to me
The Spirit will set you free
My heart becomes a stable
Hallowed dark and worn
When I bend my knees
I look up to see
Love is born

Night Flight Orchestra – Golden Swansdown Lyrics

I never meant for this to happen
Ain’t it strange how worlds collide
But I knew that very moment
She was something I never would survive
Forces of nature that can’t be denied
I had watched her from a distance
Starry eyes and silver hands
Never thoughts she’d ever notice
Guess I’m blaming magic and circumstance
I’ll just surrender and leave it to chance
Covered in golden swansdown
Gently, she stole my heart
Covered in golden swansdown
She knew I was losing right from the start
I never meant for this to happen
But I dreamt from time to time
That I’d find a way to see her
Just so I could leave all those dreams behind
Duly accepting she’d never be mine
Covered in golden swansdown
Gently, she stole my heart
Covered in golden swansdown
She knew I was losing right from the start
There’s a light still radiating out of her
Although she is sweetly unaware
As I know I’ll never find the proper words
I’ll embrace the silence that we share
Covered in golden swansdown
Gently, she stole my heart
Covered in golden swansdown
She knew I was losing right from the start
