Check Out This Musician.

If you’ve seen the MacBook commercial where a very thin laptop fits inside an envelope, then you’ve heard part of Yael Naim’s song “New Soul”.  I’m in love with this CD.  My favorite song on it is called “Far Far” so here are the lyrics:

Far far, there’s this little girl
she was praying for something to happen to her
everyday she writes words and more words
just to speak out the thoughts that keep floating inside
and she’s strong when the dreams come cos’ they
take her, cover her, they are all over
the reality looks far now, but don’t go

How can you stay outside?
there’s a beautiful mess inside
how can you stay outside?
there’s a beautiful mess inside
oh oh oh oh

Far far, there’s this little girl
she was praying for something good to happen to her
from time to time there’re colors and shapes
dazeling her eyes, tickeling her hands
they invent her a new world with
oil skies and aquarel rivers
but don’t you run away already
please don’t go oh oh

How can you stay outside?
there’s a beautiful mess inside
how an you stay outside?
there’s a beautiful mess inside

Take a deep breath and dive
there’s a beautiful mess inside
how can you stay outside?
There’s a beautiful mess
beautiful mess inside

Oh beautiful, beautiful

Far far there’s this little girl
she was praying for something big to happen to her
every night she ears beautiful strange music
it’s everywhere there’s nowhere to hide
but if it fades she begs
“oh lord don’t take it from me, don’t take it yourselves”

I guess i’ll have to give it birth
to give it birth
i guess, i guess, i guess i have to give it birth
i guess i have to, have to give it birth
there’s a beautiful mess inside and it’s everywhere

So shake it yourself now deep inside
deeper than you ever dared
deeper than you ever dared
there’s a beautiful mess inside
beautiful mess inside
Go look her up!  YouTube, iTunes, whatever just go do it…..

  1. I downloaded the commercial song yesterday; now I’ll take some time to listen to the rest of her music. Wonderful lyrics, very inspiring (and so is your quilt – love the zippy colors!).

    🙂

  2. although i have yet to listen to the song, the words are incredible. i love music, however, isn’t it the words that are so compelling in most cases nowadays? thanks for the info and the lyrics. i cannot wait to listen to her music!

  3. This song is actually free on Itunes at the moment 🙂 I just dloaded it… thanks for the suggestion! I do love New Soul on the Apple commercial, I think it might be the best pairing of a song with a product so far.

    Great blog 🙂
