Feel Good Friday Music
GITK family, if I had a choice of entertainment it would be music.... Ahhhhhh... Music has the ability to take us to another place. Music can change your mood with one tune - it's truly power-full. But what I like more than the music are GREAT lyrics to accompany sweet melodies. When I first heard the song, Evolution by Oleta Adams, I was graduating from Xavier University and headed to Meharry Medical College to learn how to "change the world." (Which reminds me I need to send my financial donations to both of these great schools - giving back) I have to tell you this is absolutely one of my favorite songs to explain the ails of the human species. I often refer to it when my mind becomes overwhelmed with 'whys'. I encourage you to click the link below listen to the song and read along. Once you've pondered the song and you really understand the lyrics, please "evolve" beyond your current understanding to a higher level of existence. I really do love you. Let's grow together...
Evolution by Oleta Adams (1993) We can travel to the planets Drive a mile through solid granite Thrive in all extremes of weather But we cannot live together We have pondered our existence Tracked the comets in the distance But we're overcome with blindness By an act of human kindness We have ventured where None have gone before us But in matters fundamental We are patterned on an old design Welcome back Tyrannosaurus Evolution is a state of mind We have filled the halls of science With the bones of mighty giants They'd all been there for generations Buried under our foundations It's a page right out of history Everything is still a mystery All except for one distinction We can stop our own extinction We have set ourselves apart From all that's gone before us But in matters fundamental We are victims of an old design Here's your chance Tyrannosaurus Maybe we can get it right this time Grab a club and join the chorus Evolution is a state of mind
