"Constant Craving" as written by K. D. Lang and Ben Mink....
Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
Always someone marches brave
Here beneath my skin

And constant craving
Has always been

Maybe a great magnet pulls
All souls towards truth
Or maybe it is life itself
That feeds wisdom
To its youth

Constant craving
Has always been

Craving
Ah ha
Constant craving
Has always been
Has always been

Constant craving
Has always been
Constant craving
Has always been

Craving
Ah ha
Constant craving
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been

    General CommentK.D. Lang is not one of my favorite singers nor do I particularly like much of her music myself, but I think she is extremely gifted.

    However I find this song absolutely stunning and I never tire of it. The wonderfully lilting acoustic guitar and the rapturous, crytral clear harmonies put this song in its own catagory.

    Her choice of the word "craving" and my general sense of the song makes me intrepret our "constant craving" very broadly, both good and bad "cravings". Basically it sums up all our desires. Be it lust, greed, worth, value, acceptance, impact, legacy, excitement, power, meaning, connection with God and others - our desires are powerful, all encompasing, universal and mostly go unsated. She understands what it is to be human.

    General Commenti`m agree she has a beautiful and amazing voice, it`s really sad that people prefers beauty over talent, i heard her singing "crying" and i was overwelmed.

    And it`s also truth thatevery one it`s beautiful in it`s own personal way. Even thoug i think it`s better that she stayed underground, as way of speaking, cause the peolpe who reach her music is cause, they apreciate it.

    And that is even better that been in every radio station, cause most of the pop singers and stuff, are seasonal, when you are tired of the same stuff, you ussaly goes where the talen is, so is just a mmater of tie, most of the time.

    General CommentThis album convinced me that k.d. lang should be billed as the best female vocalist of our time. Because she is not mainstream society, unfortunately she will never get the acclaim that she deserves. I saw her in concert in 2000 at Star Lake Ampitheater and she has a fabulously warm and funloving personality on stage.

    General CommentI agree...its such a shame that people are so fucking narrow minded these days if she looked like sheryl crow or something like that and was as straight as a ruler...

    General CommentI fully agree...

    I find her to be a very lovely woman. I don't know much about her at all but do you really have to know someone to know how lovely they are? Just listen to her music, to her unique voice, and you'll find a powerful beauty there. America is shallow and narrowminded, yes. They're all like "Oh you're gay? You're not beautiful because you're gay. Oh you aren't tall and thin and lean-muscled and buried beneathe good makeup and fashion? Oh dear, you're not beautiful."

    When can they stop judging a woman's true beauty based on her appearance and sexual orientation and "abnormalities"? Beauty is the soul. And KD Lang is beautiful. Just listen to her and hear what she has to say.

    General CommentFor me this song expresses craving about truth, in a phylosophycal way. Its like a mysterious need that humanity has been having through all history.
    K.D. Lang is one of my favorite musicians and i really admire her beautifull style of singing and songwriting.

    General Commentfirstly - stunning song, very dark, very beautiful, very powerful.

    secondly - i agree with what you're all saying about how she's one of the best female songwriters with the most beautiful voice, and yet just because she's gay, and doesn't have the perfect 'feminine' image, she's no way near as highly regarded as she should be. it's so sad.

    madonna on k.d. lang: "elvis is alive. and she's beautiful."

    MemoryThe chorus of this popped up in my head at least five years ago (after I hadn't heard it for probably five years prior), and all that time, I've wondered who did this song. Heard it in a concert ad today and ran home to look it up.

    Now that's a sign of effective songwriting.
