Just a beautiful song…

I hadn’t heard this song in ages. It’s a little bit lovely. It’s happy and sad and hopeful and unifying and powerful, all at the same time. A bit like life, really. Do You Realize?, by The Flaming Lips. I just heard it on the radio, and wanted to share.

Lyrics…

Do you realize – that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize – we’re floating in space –
Do you realize – that happiness makes you cry
Do you realize – that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes – let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do you realize – Oh – Oh – Oh
Do you realize – that everyone you know
Someday will die –

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes – let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do you realize – that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize….

Love,
Cxx

    I’ve honestly never heard this. Thanks to the power of Youtube that’ll change.

    I do think about that sometimes: that everyone alive now will die, and not that far off, by historical standards. Including me. It’s very weird. I can’t quite wrap my head around it, but I think it’s good to try.

    First time I’ve heard the song, but I like it. I’m not sure why I haven’t heard it before, since I have friends that are obsessed with The Flaming Lips.
