‘Affirmation’

This song featured in the Australian pop rock band Savage Garden‘s second album Affirmation. Its one of those rare songs where each line in the lyrics is individually wonderful. For me, it surely ranks right up there among my favorites with another of the duo band’s hits – The Animal Song.

All I can say is.. “I believe..”

“I believe the sun should never set upon an argument

I believe we place our happiness in other people’s hands

I believe that junk food tastes so good because it’s bad for you

I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do

I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem

I believe I’m loved when I’m completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned

I believe you can’t appreciate real love ’til you’ve been burned

I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side

I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye

I believe you can’t control or choose your sexuality

I believe that trust is more important than monogamy

I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul

I believe that family is worth more than money or gold

I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair

I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned

I believe you can’t appreciate real love ’til you’ve been burned

I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side

I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness

I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed

I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists

I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned

I believe you can’t appreciate real love ’til you’ve been burned

I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side

I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye (x2)

Until you say goodbye

Oh no no no no no (Repeats itself while fading)”
