Waves of the soft spring wind
Love's flood tide is rising full
The moon of love is rising full
Sea of beauty
The moon of love is rising full
Love's flood tide

Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
My mind craves nectar day and night
Like a blue lotus floating on the sea of love.

Lingering in ashantically
Lingering in the akashic realms
Lingering in the realms.
Blue lotus floats, blue lotus floats
Floating, floating...


Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy....
My mind craves nectar day and night.

    General CommentJust like the title states, being aware of the people you share this world with. Loving life, enjoying every moment you can. No matter where your journey takes you, just simply existing and letting things be.

    I can't believe nobody has commented this yet. I saw Simon on the Shpongle DJ set about 6 days ago... unfortunately he didn't play this. Unforgettable night though, I hope I have another opportunity to see him :)

    General CommentSome laugh, some weep, some dance for joy

    I only want to comment on this line. It is sung so rhythmically and hypnotically. Its tones are compelling and mystical. It never fails to calm me and take me into a quiet inner space.

    This seems to speak to different types of people, and how they experience life. But until reading the lyrics after dozens of plays over months of loving this song, I did not recognize the initial "some." To me the lyric was always

    Love some, weep some, dance for joy.

    Which means something very different. It brings the three actions together within one person. It speaks to wholeness and unity. The complete person loves, weeps and dances.
