"Adored" as written by and Ed Roland....
I can say this life is much better today
Everything turns right if wrong gets in the way
Yeah and I've got this feeling, it's something I find hard to explain
See, I wasn't looking but girl, I'm glad I fell in your way

Then she says, oh boy, oh boy
Count your lucky stars, count what you've been wishing for
Oh boy, oh boy
Count the life you live, count how you are now adored

I can say the sun burns much brighter today
I can see my path though clouds darken my way
Yeah and I've got this feeling, it's something I find hard to explain
See, I wasn't looking, but girl, I'm glad I fell in your way

Then she says, oh boy, oh boy
Count your lucky stars, count what you've been wishing for
Oh boy, oh boy
Count the life you live, count how you are now adored

She said she's tired of watching me just wilt and grieve
She said, "I'm like Jesus, I save those who do believe
Do you, do you believe?"

Yeah and I've got this feeling, it's something I find hard to explain
See, I wasn't looking, but girl, I'm glad I fell in your way

Yeah, she says, oh boy, oh boy
Count your lucky stars, count what you've been wishing for
Oh boy, oh boy
Count the life you live, count how you are now adored

Oh boy, oh boy
Count your lucky stars, count what you've been wishing for
Oh boy, oh boy
Count the life you live, count how you are now adored

    General CommentThis song was the one that really jumped at me on the new CD. Others were good, but this one made me glad I decided to listen to the CD all the way through in one sitting. It's so soothing, so uplifting and reassuring.

    So utterly Collective Soul. This is one more reason why they rock so solidly.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about a man who meets a woman when he's really not looking for a relationship. She makes him realize just how special he is. He describes her as a ray of light in a otherwise dark world, while she describes him as a great man who gives up everything for everyone else and never asks for anything in return, like Jesus. It's the differences between someone who is humble looking at themselves and seeing only a sepia picture, and a woman seeing a vibrant painting. It's a beautiful song, and when I get married I am definitely dancing to this song with whomever I marry, because it would be so accurate of our relationship.

    General CommentWe must be grateful for what we have and the people who love us. It is nice to have someone remind us of this as she did for Ed.
