"Peace Of Mind" as written by and Lauryn Hill....
I gotta find peace of mind
I know another cord
I gotta find peace of mind
See, this what that voice in your head says
When you try to get peace of mind
I gotta find peace of mind
I gotta find peace of mind
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible
He says there's no me without him
Please help me forget about him
He takes all my energy, trapped in my memory
Constantly holding me, constantly holding me
I need to tell you all, all the pain he's caused
Mmh
I need to tell I'm, I'm undone because
Mmh
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible
He says it's impossible without him, but I know it's possible
To finally be in love
And know the real meaning of
A lasting relationship, not based on ownership
I trust every part of you, 'cause all that I
All that you say you do
You love me despite myself
Sometimes I, I fight myself
I just can't believe that you, would have anything to do
With someone so insecure, someone so immature
Oh you inspire me, to be the higher me
You made my desire pure
You made my desire pure
Just tell me what to say, I can't find the words to say
Please don't be mad with me, I have no identity
All that I've known is gone, all I was building on
I don't want to walk with you, how do I talk to you
Touch my mouth with your hands
Touch my mouth with your hands
Oh I want to understand
The meaning of your embrace
I know now I have to face, the temptations of my past
Please don't let me disgrace
Where my devotion lays
Now that I know the truth, now that it's no excuse
Keeping me from your love, what was I thinking of?
Holding me from your love, what was I thinking of?
You are my peace of mind
That old me is left behind
You are my peace of mind
That old me is left behind, yeah
He says it's impossibleB
But I know it's possible
He says it's improbable
But I know it's tangeable
He says it's not grabbable
But I know it's haveable
'Cause anything's possible
Oh anything is possible
Please come free my mind
Please come meet my mind
Can you see my mind, oh
Won't you come free my mind?
Oh I know it's possible
Anything, anything, anything, anything, anything, yey
Anything, anything, anything, anything, yey
Anything, anything, anything, anything, anything, yey
Oh free, free, free, free your mind
Free, free your mind
Free, free your mind
Free, free, free, free your mind
Oh, it's so possible
Oh it's so possible
I'm telling you it's possible
I'm telling you it's possible
Free, free, free, free, free, free, get free now
Free, free, free, free, free, free, free, free
You're my peace of mind
That old me is left behind
You're my peace of mind
You're my peace of mind
He's my peace of mind
He's my peace of mind
He's my peace of mind
What a joy it is to be alive
To get another chance, yeah
Everyday's another chance
To get it right this time
Everyday's another chance
Oh what a merciful, merciful, merciful God
Oh what a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful God
Oh what a merciful, merciful, merciful, merciful, merciful
Oh what a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, merciful
Merciful, merciful, wonderful
Merciful, wonderful

    General Commenti think this song illustrates the differences between a relationship based on insecurity and neediness vs. one based on true love. i can relate it to my personal experience involving an ex who i couldnt move past until i found a man to show me that real love is self-less ("you make my desire pure"). its funny how i translated my insecurity into being in love with that other person now that i look back on it.

    General CommentI may be wrong, but to me this song is once again about God. That's perfectly fine with me because I'm a proud christian and I totally identify with this song. I think the song is sort of a before and after type thing. In the beginning she seems very confused and upset. She needs peace of mind. They after the line "Touch my mouth with your hands" she talks about how her life is so much better now that she's found peace of mind through this person. I think that in the end of this song she is telling everyone that the remedy for whatever problem you have is God. Whatever mind shackles that hold you back with be unlocked if you just let him do it. You will "get free" if you get with god. I may be wrong but that's just how I took it. Cause this song has really effected me in that way. I love it.
