Resonance

My senior seminar focused on things that resonate. Not the literal physics interpretation of that word, but the idea of the external impacting you so severely. Why Emerson and Hawthorne were stunning writers. What the American Renaissance encompassed.

I love getting to that level with anything – a friend, conversation, piece of art. When something moves you and motivates you to change – when it stirs you. That feeling should happen more.

This song resonates with me. So I’m compelled to share.

 

Lyrics:

 

Going about my ways happily
Living luckily growing naturally
Speaking softly
Dreaming oddly
Speaking honestly
Embody all ways of life energy
Everything is perfect actually
I know love will come eventually
Amazing, obviously

Cos baby I was swimming between the islands
The very smallest islands
In the depths of the ocean
When the universe opened
Opened to a diamond
Diamond of the chosen
Chosen to enlighten

Life on the island
Silent little island
Rising like a mountain from the darkest of oceans
When the universe opened
Opened for the diamond
Diamond of the chosen
Born into the ocean
Cos the universe opened

For you and me
Eternally
For you and me
Eternally

Oh, for you and me
Eternally
For you and me
Eternally

Higher than the summits
Riding the currents
Faster than a bullet
From the gun of a murderer

Higher than the mountains
Shooting through the planets
Faster than a rocket
Flying through the universe

Faster than a bullet
From the gun of a murderer
Faster than a rocket
Flying through the universe

Going about my ways happily
Living luckily, growing naturally
Speaking softly
Dreaming oddly
Speaking honestly
Embody all ways of life energy
Everything is perfect actually
I know love will come eventually
Amazing, obviously

Cos baby I was swimming between the islands
The very smallest islands
In the depths of the ocean
When the universe opened
Opened to a diamond
Diamond of the chosen
Chosen to enlighten

Life on the island
Silent little island
Rising like a mountain from the darkest of oceans
When the universe opened
Opened for the diamond
Diamond of the chosen
Born into the ocean
Cos the universe opened

For you and me
Eternally
For you and me
Eternally

Oh,for you and me
Eternally
For you and me
Eternally

  1. I can see how this song resonates with you as a skier. Even though it was literally about the ocean, I could almost imagine someone being on the slopes in the snow, taking the twists and turns with the lyrics and beat of the song.

    I also like how it talks about being open, and letting love in. I think if we all do that, there would be more peace.

    Thanks for sharing this song. I’ve never heard it before.
