The words I would say / As palavras que diria

Three in the morning and I’m still awake
So I picked up a pen and a page
And I started writing just what I’d say
If we were face to face
.
.
Be strong in the Lord and never give up hope
You’re gonna do great things, I already know
God’s got His hand on You so don’t live life in fear
Forgive and forget but don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
And thank God for each day
His love will find a way
These are the words I would say.

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.
