Merlin's Notes

Wisdom in Pop Music

Often we consider pop music as shallow, and I have to admit that most of the time this is a true assessment. But once in a while we find a little gem.

Working on this web site and browsing for something totally different I ran into a video with these awesome lyrics...

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen
When your heart's not open

You're so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret
You're broken
When your heart's not open

...

Now there's no point in placing the blame
And you should know I suffer the same
If I lose you
My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly
Let all the hurt inside of you die
You're frozen
When your heart's not open

...

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen
When your heart's not open

...

If I could melt your heart

I left out a few chorus verses that don't add much to the message but make, admittedly, the song a lot nicer. Would it not be terrific if everybody listening to this song would actually hear the words and apply them to oneself? Because then the message would spread fast and wide because a song by Madonna is listened to quite often. The song is 'Frozen' and I assume that is from Madonna's Kabbalah period - and here now you have it...
