New Soul



For today's posting, I present a photo of my little niece Ying Ying. She is a bubbly 3-year old who enjoys good food! Her photos always put a smile on me! Just like this song 'New Soul' by Yael Naim. It's a chirpy song with beautiful lyrics. The music video and song also bring smiles to me! Hope you enjoy!

Wish you a Happy weekend!






New Soul by Yael Naim
---------------------

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

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

See 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

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

This is a happy end
Cause 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

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

New soul... (la, la, la, la,...)
In this very strange world...
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes...

Thanks Thien! Ying Ying, my niece, is a very bubbly child! She laughs a lot even when she was an infant. I love having her around. When she eats chocolate covered doughnuts, she will have the chocolate smacked all over her cheeks. Yet, she is so unconscious about it! How nice to be a child again ~ then we would be less self-conscious and so much freedom about our appearances!

Glad you like this song too, Alice. New Soul song is very upbeat and as you listen a couple more times, you would easily sing along with it. Even Steve Jobs like it that he has chosen it for Apple's Mac Air's advert.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
