"Let Love Be Your Energy" as written by and Robert Peter/chambers Williams....
Out of a million seeds
Only the strongest one breathes
You made a miracle mother
I'll make a man out of me

Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky?
What did we do wrong, why did it die?
And all the grown ups say 'sorry kids we got no reply'

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I've got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

Every tear that you cry
Will be replaced when you die
Why don't you love your brother?
Are you out of your mind?

Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky
What did we do wrong, why did it die
And if you've got no love for me then I'll say goodbye

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I've got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can't contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me
Well if you want to come and make a stance
So when it's in your hands
People will show me love

Well if you want to come and make a stance
So when it's in your hands
People show me love

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can't contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me

    General CommentI think this song is a reflection of our colapsing society, set in the future possibiltiy. Take the first lines:
    "Out of a million seeds
    Only the strongest one breathes" - meaning that only the richest/most powerful/strongest person will lead.
    "Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky?
    What did we do wrong, why did it die?
    And all the grown ups say 'sorry kids we got no reply'" - means that we won't know how we destroyed the sun, our means of living.

    But in the end, our love will always be our energy.
    "If you're willing to change the world
    Let love be your energy
    I got more than I need
    When your love shines down on me".

    General CommentIt's a song about growing up and being a parent at the same time. I'm not sure Robbie wrote this himself since it sounds more like "Let Love be Your Energy" to be a parent."Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky?
    What did we do wrong, why did it die?
    And all the grown ups say 'sorry kids we got no reply' are all of the strange unanswerable questions kids answer and adults answer in frustration. It's the frustration parents face, but a parent's love is all a child really needs.

    General CommentFirst of all, I'll say I love this song, it's uplifting, and it's about seeing the glass half full. And about its meaning, I agree with Dangeist on the fact that all the questions that sometimes children ask have no "creative" answer on the part of their parents, who normally answer "Sorry, kid, I have no reply" just to get rid of the child because they have no patience or no time to come up with an answer which may satisfy the child.

    As for the first part of the song, "Out of a million seeds, only the strongest one breathes", I think that Rob refers to the beginning of life, to the strongest spermatozoid reaching the ovule, which develops as a seed after fertilization.

    I do love the line "Well if you want it come and make a stance", 'stance' there meaning a rationalized mental attitude, which adds to the overall meaning of the song, which is LOVE, love making the earth go round. It's like saying: Love, accept being loved, and your life will change. And once your life and the life of the rest change, the world will be a better place".

    Great song. Great Robbie.
