5 Minutes - stream of consciousness

"It’s exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful." ~Adrienne Rich

There's a song in my head that I heard on the radio today - every so often (few years or so) I hear it and I love it and I sing along to it and today I thought I'd find it and put it up here but... I'm not finding it. Granted I don't know the name of the song... but I'm not finding it even though I know the lyrics... Google... why aren't you helping me today? It's a song about love and peace and how happy we'd be if we see tomorrow through the eyes of a child... Ah well. 

It's the day after Valentine's Day... girls make much more of a fuss about it than guys do. At least the girls I know in real life and online. I'm not that fussed by it... I guess it would be nice to get a gift/surprise... but it also would be nice to get something on a random day as well... show me love - anyplace, anytime. Am I bummed that I don't have a special someone? Maybe? I'm not sure? Hmm. I am blessed with much love but there are things that one can only really share with a partner and I guess that's what I'm missing. 

My girl ppl want to go to a fete for Carnival... I've been successful in avoiding any and all thus far. Mwahaha ... and also... Ergh. Was told that Machel Monday was 'awesome' and that I should have been there. Crowds aren't my thing... I'd like to go dancing sometime with the girl ppl but a fete? Meh. 

Sometimes I feel much older than I really am. It's an old soul I have is what some would say. I'm not sure what others would say. 

I really would like to find that song. 

night all... peace,
Ren

Hi Ren - do you know who sang the song you're talking about - and is from like 15-20 years ago? I havent heard it in more than 10 years and am desperately trying to find it. Thanks heaps :)

Hi Lima,

I still don't know who sang the song.. it was more than one person so maybe a group?

It is from 15 - 20 years ago... no one I talk to seems to know about it.

More remembered lyrics (though they may be botched):
"there's a door we all pass through of innocent wonder and the stars we wished under made dreams come true"...

Is this the same song you're thinking of?

I really would like to find it.

Hi,

If anyone is still interested, the song you're referring to is called "Eyes of A Child" performed by Garden of Joy, and can be found on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAZkB07BIsw
