"Newborn Friend" as written by and Seal Samuel....
I wash my faith in dirty water,
'Cause it gives my mind a little order.
And I play that game, just like I should do.
But my whole world, slips away.

I live my life, I live it slowly.
And I take my time, I'm in no hurry, yeah, I'm livin'
And when I go then I would surely.

I would dance with a total stranger,
And hold them in my arms.
Hell, there could be no danger if I open up up,
'Cause when the cryin' starts so,

If I chant for happiness,
Maybe that will make me feel better?
I can't change my ideals, I can't lose my desire
Oh, if I chant for happiness maybe that will make me feel better?
I'd be your newborn friend for the world.

Well I wash my face in dirty water.
For life I have no order.
'Cause I,
Know that feeling when you've tried to make your way out,
Nothing mends.
So you search for the breed of the problems there lying,
Deep down in the soul.
And if, they never end,
There's a whole bunch of reasons, tryin' to get out
But they can't make it out of the door.
Oh, I know the reason,
I'm not enough.
There's nothing more
But

If I chant for happiness, maybe that will make me feel better.
I can't changes my ideals, I can't put out the fire.
Oh, if I chant for happiness, maybe that will bring us together,
For the better
I can't changes my ideals, I can't lose my desire.
I'm just a newborn friend for the world
Just a newborn friend for the world
I'll be your newborn friend and I'll

Sing loud
Sing loud
Sing loud my friend
Sing loud
Sing loud
Sing loud.

Gonna sing louder
Sing loud
Sing loud my friend
Sing louder
Sing loud
Sing loud

To my friend my friend and I

I'll sing love, sing loud, sing a little louder of my friend.
Oh my friend
Oh, my darlin' friend my friend my friend

Ah, na-da da, da...

    Song MeaningThis song seems to be about person compromising their values (I wash my faith in dirty water), to make life easy (Cause it gives my mind a little order), but not finding fulfillment as a result (But my whole world, slips away.)

    The person then decides to change and live according to their own values even without immediate success (I live my life, I live it slowly), but at least they are more fulfilled (I’m livin). This person is willing to try this new way (I would dance with a total stranger) with no regrets so long as he/she is living honestly (Hell, there could be no danger if I open up). The person envisions becoming more valuable to society this way. (I’d be your newborn friend for the world.)

    There is no such thing as an easy life. (For life there is no order.) The rest of the 5th stanza elaborates this thought.

    There is no such thing as an easy life, (For life there is no order.) especially when you encounters failures for refusing to bend your values- (Cause, I know that feeling when you’ve tried to make your way out. Nothing mends.) this sometimes leads to severe self-criticism and a sense of defeat. etc

    I think has to be one of the sexiest lines, I dont completely comprehend what they mean but I can interpret in my own way.

    General CommentIf a total stranger walked up to me and asked me to dance, especially to this, I totally feel his groove and get right down to it. If I chant for happiness, maybe that will make me feel better. . .
