"Far Far" as written by Yael Naim and David Donatien....
Far, far, there's this little girl
She was praying for something to happen to her
Everyday she writes words and more words
Just to speak out the thoughts that keep floating inside
And she's strong when the dreams come 'cause they
Take her, cover her, they are all over
The reality looks far now, but don't go

How can you stay outside?
There's a beautiful mess inside
How can you stay outside?
There's a beautiful mess inside
Hmm, hmm
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Far, far, there's this little girl
She was praying for something good to happen to her
From time to time there aree colors and shapes
Dazzling her eyes, tickling her hands
They invent her a new world with
Oil skies and aquarelle rivers
But don't you run away already
Please don't go, oh, oh

How can you stay outside?
There's a beautiful mess inside
How can you stay outside?
There's a beautiful mess inside
Take a deep breath and dive
There's a beautiful mess inside
How can you stay outside?
There's a beautiful mess inside

Beautiful
Beautiful

Far, far there's this little girl
She was praying for something big to happen to her
Every night she ears beautiful strange music
It's everywhere there's nowhere to hide
But if it fades, she begs
"Oh Lord, don't take it from me, don't take it yourselves"

I guess I'll have to give it birth
To give it birth
I guess, I guess, I guess I have to give it birth
I guess I have to, have to give it birth
There's a beautiful mess inside and it's everywhere

So shake it yourself now deep inside
Deeper than you ever dared
Deeper than you ever dared
There's a beautiful mess inside
Beautiful mess inside

    General CommentThe depths of one's imagination can be much more captivating than reality. Creating beauty out of the dullness, always hoping there's something more. Giving birth to the beautiful mess inside of you, expressing yourself and turning your dreams into words, quietly.

    This is me as well, and so many others. It's spot on; I can't even describe it. What a beautiful song!

    General CommentThis is me.

    Wow.





    I'm a bit of a mess, but I have serious desire to make the music in my mind come to life - out the beautiful mess inside.

    General CommentI love this album. Although I actually like more of the non-English songs... this is my favorite one that is written in English.

    To me, it almost gives out a beacon of hope. Like.. 'dive in and go for it. How couldn't you?'

    General CommentReminds me of a Moon Void of Course person - they feel everything on every level, as we other schlups wander thru life just getting from one place to another.

    It's all about inspiration and how deep and painful development of all that comes with it can be. Birth ain't easy, LOL.

    It's also about appreciating who the hell you are. Oh, and not BSing yourself.

    General Commenti picture this song about three different things: writing, painting, and music. She is a dreamer, and she thinks her dreams are better than reality. "reality looks far now, but don't go"

    She is a sensitive artest type, and she is trying to understand the world round her. the girl is looking at the world and all the people and dosen't understand them so she turns to the arts which is the best way she can express herself.

    its like she gets stressed, and she wants to run away inside of herself, but later in the songs she realizes she cant keep it all inside of herself so she "gives birth" to it buy sharing it which i assume she is talking about writing her music.

    General CommentThis song sort of reminds me of myself, really. Not entirely sure what it really means, though.

    My OpinionI second the above - it's slightly unnerving how accurately this song describes myself.
