Acordei com duas músicas no Michael Jackson na cabeça e até cantei do duche :).
Ando a ouvi-las em modo repeat enquanto trabalho e apercebi-me que têm tudo a ver com amor.

Uma frase que não me sai da cabeça {e do coração} é "make a little space to make a better place" {"Heal the World"}.
Acredito mesmo que é com pequenos gestos que se faz a diferença, que ao criarmos um pequeno espaço {para meditação ou oração, para ouvir ou ajudar outra pessoa, para contemplar ou para pôr mãos à obra} abrimos um buraquinho por onde pode jorrar uma infinidade de mudanças e alegrias.

A "Earth Song" faz-me vibrar de indignação pelos maus tratos infligidos à Criação, homens, animais, plantas e toda a Terra.
É um uivo desesperado que apela à consciência moral, ambiental e ética.
"Do we give a damn"?


~ Heal The World ~

There's a place in your heart and I know that it is love
And this place could be much brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try, you'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel there's no hurt or sorrow

There are ways to get there if you care enough for the living
Make a little space to make a better place...

Heal the world, make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

If you want to know why, there's a love that can not lie
Love is strong, it only cares for joyful giving
If we try we shall see, in this bliss we can not feel
fear or dread, we stop existing and start living

Then it feels that always love is enough for us growing
So make a better world, make a better world...

Heal The World...

And the dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life, wound this Earth, crucify its soul
Though it's plain to see this world is heavenly, be God's glow

We could fly so high, let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear, together we'll cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plowshares

We could really get there if you cared enough for the living
Make a little space to make a better place...

Heal The World...


~ Earth Song ~

What about sunrise, what about rain
What about all the things that you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields, is there a time
What about all the things that you said was yours and mine...

Did you ever stop to notice all the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop to notice the crying Earth the weeping shores?

What have we done to the world, look what we've done
What about all the peace that you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields, is there a time
What about all the dreams that you said was yours and mine...

Did you ever stop to notice all the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice the crying Earth the weeping shores

I used to dream, I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are although I know we've drifted far

Hey, what about yesterday (What about us)
What about the seas (What about us)
The heavens are falling down (What about us)
I can't even breathe (What about us)
What about apathy (What about us)
I need you (What about us)
What about nature's worth (ooo, ooo)
It's our planet's womb (What about us)
What about animals (What about it)
We've turned kingdoms to dust (What about us)
What about elephants (What about us)
Have we lost their trust (What about us)
What about crying whales (What about us)
We're ravaging the seas (What about us)
What about forest trails (ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas (What about us)
What about the holy land (What about it)
Torn apart by creed (What about us)
What about the common man (What about us)
Can't we set him free (What about us)
What about children dying (What about us)
Can't you hear them cry (What about us)
Where did we go wrong (ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why (What about us)
What about babies (What about it)
What about the days (What about us)
What about all their joy (What about us)
What about the man (What about us)
What about the crying man (What about us)
What about Abraham (What about us)
What about death again
Do we give a damn

ADORO o Heal the world! É mesmo a música perfeita para cantar no duche... ou melhor ainda, para ouvir em alto volume no carro, com os vidros abertos para espalhar esse amor todo pelo mundo inteiro! :D

:)))) é tão bom cantar no carro!
o único inconveniente de andar de metro é não poder cantar!
