I guess I was wrong about the song.

It's a few hours after my last public post, and I'm over the crying part (thank goodness!). It's hard to sing when you're crying, and I found out the hard way that if you sing high notes while you're crying, you end up stretching your throat muscles a bit.

But enough about me. I've noticed that the web sites have added words to the song that just aren't sung in the video - unless they're sung in Chinese (Mandarin)! But if you want to just sing along with Sarah Brightman, and can't quite keep up, here is what she sang:

"You and me
From one World
We are Family....
Travel dream
A thousand miles
Meeting in Beijing.
Come together
Put your hand in mine;
You and me
From one World
We are Family."

Oh, and by the way: if you copy this without giving the proper credit (which, in this case, is the author of that song as well as the Chinese Olympic Committee), don't blame me if you get bad Karma!

My point here is this: The songs with the most Wisdom are usually put forth in a simple manner. One that is more singable, yet very touching to my heart, is Enya's "Only If" from her Paint the Sky with Stars album.
Hm.... Note to self: go back to that one mule account in Gaia and do just that - Timeless Songs. I'm sure this one will be on there....
