Everyday Things

Let’s Listen to the Music!

Once in a while, it happens. When I hear a song (usually an old song), and it becomes “stuck in my head” for a few days.

Two weeks ago, I heard the song “The Greatest Love of All” on my flight back to Singapore. The song is so good that just by listening to it, I felt a little sad. It touched my heart so much and suddenly, my vision was clouded by tears in my eyes.

The moment I got home, I quickly searched for the song in my CD stash. I was very sure that I have the CD, and alas, I found it! I was so happy.

The CD has since been promoted to my car. I listen to the song when I drive to work in the morning. I even put it on repeat mode. Little Edison was puzzled with the repetition initially, but he had no objection.

Simply because – the song is sooOoo good!

I want to share this song with you today. I have two versions here – one by Taiwanese singer Shunza and the other one by Whitney Houston. Both are equally good, trust me.

Now, please turn ON your audio and enjoy this song! I got the lyrics here, in case you wanna sing along.

Enjoy!

I believe the children are our are future,

teach them well and let them lead the way,

show them all the beauty they possess inside,

give them a sense of pride to make it easier,

let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be…

Everybody searching for a hero, people need someone to look up to,

I never found anyone to fulfill my needs…

A lonely place to be and so I learned to depend on me…

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows!

If I fail, if I succeed,

at least I live as I believe!

No matter what they take from me

they can’t take away my dignity!

Because the greatest love of all is happening to me!

I found the greatest love of all inside of me…

The greatest love of all is easy to achieve

Learning to love yourself it is the greatest love of all…

I believe the children are our future,

teach them well and let them lead the way,

show them all the beauty they possess inside,

give them a sense of pride to make it easier,

let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be…

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows!

If I fail, if I succeed,

at least I live as I believe!

No matter what they take from me

they can’t take away my dignity!

Because the greatest love of all is happening to me!

I found the greatest love of all inside of me…

The greatest love of all is easy to achieve

Learning to love yourself it is the greatest love of all…

And if by chance that special place that you’ve been dreaming of

leads you to a lonely place, find your strength in love…
