"What Your Soul Sings" as written by Robert Del Naja, Neil Davidge, Grantley Marshall and Sinead O'connor....
Don't be afraid
Open your mouth to say
Say what your soul sings to you

Your mind can never change
Unless you ask it to
Lovingly rearrange
The thoughts that make you blue
The things that bring you down
Will mean no harm to you
And so make your choice joy
The joy belongs to you

And when you do
You'll find the one you love is here
You'll find you
The love yeah

Don't be ashamed no
To open your heart and pray
Say what your soul sings to you

So no longer pretend
That you can't feel it near
That tickle on your hand
That tingle in your ear
And ask it anything
Because it loves you dear
It's your most precious king
If only you could hear

And when you do
You'll find the one you need is here
You'll find you
Love you

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Massive Attack songs :D It's about loving yourself. Listen to your heart and love yourself.

    General CommentNot sure, but I think the chorus is kinda off... here are my thoughts on it:

    And when you do
    You'll find the one you love is you
    You'll find you
    Love you

    General CommentThis song is very beautiful to me and is severely unappreciated. The words ethereal, tender, haunting and universal come to mind whenever I listen to this - so I guess to me the song emcompasses those themes.

    General CommentCORRECT LYRICS:

    Don't be afraid
    Open your mouth and say
    say what your soul sings to you

    your mind can never change
    unless you ask it to
    Lovingly re-arrange
    the thoughts that make you blue
    the things that bring you down
    can only do harm to you
    so make your choice joy
    the joy belongs to you

    And when you do
    you'll find the one you love is you
    you'll find you love you

    Don't be ashamed
    to open your heart and pray
    say what your soul sings to you

    So no longer pretend
    that you can't feel it near
    that tikkle in your head
    that tingle in your ear
    Oh ask it anything
    it loves you dear
    it's your most precious king
    If only you can hear

    And when you do
    you'll find the one you need is you
    you'll find you love you

    Lyric CorrectionThese are the correct lyrics:

    Don't be afraid
    Open your mouth and say
    Say what your soul sings to you

    Your mind can never change
    Unless you ask it to
    Lovingly re-arrange
    The thoughts that make you blue
    The things that bring you down
    Only do harm to you
    And so make your choice joy
    The joy belongs to you

    And when you do
    You'll find the one you love is you
    You'll find you
    Love you

    Don't be ashamed, no
    To open your heart and pray
    Say what your soul sings to you

    So no longer pretend
    That you can't feel it near
    That tickle on your hand
    That tingle in your ear
    Oh, ask it anything
    Because it loves you dear
    It's your most precious king
    If only you could hear

    And when you do
    You'll find the one you need is you
    You'll find you
    Love you

    My OpinionI think the lyrics are as follows:

    Massive Attack:

    Don't be afraid
    Open your mouth and say
    Say what your soul sings to you

    Your mind can never change
    unless you ask it to
    Lovingly re-arrange
    the thoughts that make you blue
    The things that bring you down
    only do harm to you
    And so make your choice joy
    for joy belongs to you

    And when you do
    you'll find the one you love is you
    You'll find you love you

    Don't be ashamed, no
    to open your heart and pray
    Say what your soul sings to you

    So no longer pretend
    that you can't feel it near
    that tickle on your head
    that tingle in your ear
    Oh, ask it anything
    because it loves you dear
    It's your most precious king
    if only you could hear

    And when you do
    you'll find the one you need is you
    You'll find you love you
