"In my head I may not know
What I feel down in my soul
With my eyes I may not see
The fire that burns inside of me”

if you’re into inspiring, introspective, spiritual songs, you’ll definitely love Judah & the lion ~ southern accent, lots of banjo and violin and BEARDS!

Different Child by Roo Panes

Mr. Panes is another repeat offender on the blog. He is setting up to go on tour in the UK next month, so I thought it would be a good time to revisit this amazing musician. His sound is very inviting and comforting and his lyrics are filled with wisdom from beyond his years. 

I love this song because it has a lot of reasuring messages for those of us that need a helping hand now and then. It’s a song about growing up. Sometimes you will stumble and those are the times that hopelessness can creep up on you; but as the song says, “…you’ll overcome”. Something that this world tries to tell you is that you have to be the best at everything or you are worthless; that simply is not true. You are You; you are exactly who you are supposed to be and you can’t be any more than that. Do not strive to be better than others, don’t even strive to be better, just live fully and exactly in the moment. 

My favorite line is the final one, “Now I am a heart with a head on my shoulders and I’ll say that I’m a different child”. The reason I like this line is that he doesn’t say that he is an “adult” or “grown-up”, he uses the word “child”. If you are anything like me, as you grow up, you will not feel like an adult at any point; this is because I don’t think they exist, we are all children, from the day we are born to the day we die. As soon as you identify yourself as an adult, you put yourself above all others younger than you and you stop listening and learning. 

Never stop learning, never stop living. Namaste.

Different Child
by Roo Panes

You’re homeward bound for wisdom cos you’ve seen the webs you spun, 
You’re versed in vice and virtue but this time your vice has won, 
But when hopelessness would tell you that your better days are done, 
Have no fear you’ll overcome. 

There are times when you might feel that there’s nothing left to hold, 
That every time you lift your chin your faults have laid you low, 
But mercy’s in the mightiest and mighty is the judge, 
He will lift you up above. 

And you’ll say - 
Now I am a heart with a head on my shoulders and I can say that I’m a different child.
