Lotus Flower

Lotus Flower by Jewelia, featuring David Denyer on violin.

A beautiful, haunting song from talented singer-songwriter Jewelia.

Expecting too much from the wounded
And blaming too much on the dead
Maybe I’m putting my faith in the weaklings
When instead of attacking I choose to defend
And maybe we’re moving too slowly
And maybe we’re all going down
But everyone knows from the stories,
You need to be lost to be found

And maybe I cheer for the losers
But someone needs to cheer for them
And maybe I root for the victims
And maybe I’ll lose all my bets
But we’re all condemned in the end
It’s just in the way that we’re made
And maybe the guardians don’t know
The power that lies in despair

Tell me I’m a lotus flower
I don’t think I ever chose to drink
This cup, it’s sour
Why’d you have to make it harder?

Father of the damned don’t joke around
My life’s at stake; please make amends
Not sure the saints would understand
They don’t share anything but blame
If this is fair, the world makes sense
Only because we’re all insane
We’re all the same, we share the blame
It’s easier than share the pain

I’m writing a song for the broken
The homeless, the crippled, the damned
I won’t claim I know you, I shouldn’t
Don’t want to pretend that I care

Lotus Flower released Christmas Day as a gift from Jewelia to the world.

    Reblogged this on daydreamer and commented:
    Jewelia (Iulia Tache) – o româncă foarte talentata, un cantec superb si mai multi noi care să o susținem și promovăm, fiecare cum poate și se pricepe mai bine.

    Asta e website-ul ei: http://www.jewelia-music.com/#!about/c10fk

    Am descoperit-o prin intermediul unui prieten, Keith – care este si autorul acestui reblog și care ne-a facut onoarea si bucuria de-a ne si trimite un CD cu autograful și dedicația ei peste mările și țările care ne despart.

    Pe Keith l-am cunoscut aici in Puerto, in primavara anului asta. Am invatat de la el in cateva saptamani cat invatam daca mai faceam 10 scoli deodata si ales in State si UK..si continui sa invat prin blogul lui. E genul de om complet neconventional si pe care nu-l intalnesti prea des in viata. Felul deschis, imposibil si “nebun” cred ca a facut sa ne si intelegem din prima.

    Ne-am cunoscut in niste boscheti unde amandoi furam frame-uri cu un apus scotator din fire …de pe Playa Jardin. Complet razna. Sunt constient si imi asum.

    Cat despre Jewelia…sa dea Domnul s-o vedem cât mai sus și cât mai bine. Merge pe un drum tare frumos si banuiesc ca și foarte greu.
