Anima = Soul

So Sunday morning is the church of music video around here. God bless YouTube.

This is one of the most soulful and evocative songs I've ever heard. After years and years of wondering what it meant I recently found the lyrics -- in the liner notes. Ha. I might as well be unconscious. Milton Nascimento, you are obviously NOT unconscious.




Anima

Polish, all my quest, drama
Polish what my heart
At its most inspired
Saw fit to name
In a cry: Soul

Recreate every beautiful moment
I've already lived too much
Cross the borders of dawn
Look calmly on

Soul go beyond all
That our world dares to perceive
A house full of courage, life
Clean the stain on my being
I want to see you. I want to see you.

Traveling, a constant search
To polish myself, this minute now
To recreate myself, to gratify myself
I search for you, Soul

In the open house where the master lives
The clay of light. Where time is to be found
Inventing color. And bringing love to life
Where peace forgets itself.
