Hands (Jewel)

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won’t be made useless
I won’t be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

.
We’ll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what’s right
‘Cause where there’s a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
.
In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
.
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray


We are God’s hands
We are God’s hands

Nota: Tanto quanto me foi dado perceber, esta canção está de alguma maneira conotada com os movimentos a favor do lesbianismo. Não consigo encontrar nenhuma razão para tal, nem na letra da canção (que transcrevo parcialmente) nem na biografia da cantora. E, sinceramente, também não estou nem um bocadinho interessado nisso. Poderá ser, talvez, uma apropriação abusiva semelhante àquela que fez uma das campanhas eleitorais do PS do tema Charriots of Fire de Vangelis.
