"The Child In Us" as written by and Cretu....
Prasanna vadanaaM saubhaagyadaaM bhaagyadaaM
HastaabhyaaM abhayapradaaM maNigaNair-
Naanaavidhair-bhuushhitaaM
(who is of smiling face, bestower of all fortunes,
Whose hands are ready to rescue anyone from fear,
Who is adorned by various ornaments with precious stones)

Puer natus est nobis,
Et filius datus est nobis
Cujus emperium super humerum
(For to us a child is born,
To us a son is given:
And the government will be upon his shoulder)

Some day you came
And I knew you were the one
You were the rain, you were the sun
But I needed both, cause I needed you

You were the one
I was dreaming of all my life
When it is dark you are my light
But don't forget
Who's always our guide

It is the child in us

    General CommentThis song is clearly praising the Creator for creating us and making us pure beings like Children that we are.

    What an astounding piece of music. Makes me glad to be alive. Enigma made some of the very best music ever, and this is no exception.

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song! Going by the lyrics, it can be inferred that the song emphasizes the importance of listening to that innocent little child in us, but personally, I've always ended up imagining stars, galaxies, and the very beginning of time and space while listening to this song. It's simply a brilliant piece of work.

    My InterpretationThe first: I hope that the initial idea of Michael is to emphasize that the child in us lives throughout entire our Earth life-long. Yes, this is the call from inside, the childhood memories which are unfortunately still to understand. This is all about the child as a living spirit inside. On the other hand Michael gave us the phrases "The Universal Justice and the Eyes of Truth are always watching you..." What we can get from it? In my vision the deep meaning is that Universe is ought to watch over our inner world, to watch over child in us. We all have to remember that Everything in the Universe is already been, now exists and will always be. Ever. Since the time is comparatively soft and elastic the human would never realize how the Truth looks like. We all just have to chose our way from endless variety of outcomes.
    The second: This is the only song from the first time I have heard till now which pushes me dramatically to the Endless Sorrow and the Endless Joy at the same time. This feeling grows in every stage of the song: when the first Sanskrit starts, later, when flutes starts, finally when Cretu sings. What is it? I have been asking myself all these years...
    Thank you for reading.

    General CommentI agree that is about listening to our inner child, BUT also it has a meaning, a song to our lord Jesuschrist! Remember how he told us that the kingodm of heaven is inside us, while we accept Jesus as our lord and our savor! AMEN! A very beautiful song! Love IT! =D GADySJTDEO!
