"Truly" as written by and Wilhelm Leeb....
I know good things, I know bad as well
Any witness to the world will tell
If there is sorrow, then there is beauty and trust
A secret pearl inside the heart of us

So truly, if there's light then I want to see it
Now that I know what I am looking for
Truly, if there;s joy then I want to feel it
Here in this world is where I want to be
'Cause I can't cry anymore

And there is magic now, under blood red trees,
All the sky will scream a mystery
And if we're strangers here, from the day we are born
Why be afraid of freedom if it is yours?

So truly, if there's light then I want to see it
Now that I know what I am looking for
Truly, if there;s joy then I want to feel it
Here in this world is where I want to be
'Cause I can't cry anymore

All the world is calling, calling out my name
All the world is saying it won't be the same
All the sky is showing how it;s gonna be
But I'm scared and I'm tired of being like me...

So truly, if there's light then I want to see it
Now that I know what I am looking for
Truly, if there;s joy then I want to feel it
Here in this world is where I want to be
'Cause I can't cry anymore

    General CommentWow! Such a beautiful song! I love it!

    I'm really not sure what this song means. But I'll take a stab at it: I think that this song is an optimistic view on sorrow in the sense that it tries to find the beauty behind sorrow. Such as if there is sorrow, there must also be love and trust, as the first part of the song states. I also think that this song tries to depict a sort of life independent from fate, where people can pave their own paths without relying on destiny or anybody else ("if we're strangers here, from the day we are born / why be afraid of freedom if it is yours?), even though it's very difficult. Basically, to sum everything up, this song, I think, is about finding yourself. And emerging stronger after suffering from sorrow. It just tries to find a mean of escape from this sorrow.

    I hope that moderately captures the theme of the song . . .

    General CommentStudmuffin, interpretation well done. However I personally think that it's about a person's ability to discern right and wrong, and to find the truth about oneselves that he/she is searching for. Summing up, it's about the trials and tribulations about finding a personal truth.

    General Commentif you look for this song on the iTunes store there is a mix available called "wise buddha"
    this led me to the conclusion that this song is not only about discovering your true and natural self, but about the buddhist path. Part of buddhism is the belief that all life is suffering and that we have to accept that there is pain in the world and see it exactly for what it is and be under no false perceptions before we can uncover our true selves and reach enlightenment.
    The vocalist on this track is called Nerina Pallot, check out her albums they're great!
    PEACE

    General Commentlisten up, basically you can find any sort of meaning in songs, even opposite ones, in the same song. So don't go looking for any meaning deeper than a soupbord. Get out of it what you want, if you ever get to meet the artist, she will tell you that as well: the meaning of the song is what YOU want to find there not that what I put there.
