rabbit rabbit

My friend Sarah and I were recently talking and the singer/song-writer Jewel came up in the conversation. I will soon be purchasing an album, but I encourage you to check out these lyrics or even check them out on youtube. I've only posted two, but check out some more and listen especially to the truth it speaks to each of us.

Hands lyrics

If I could tell the world just one thing It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me But I knew it wasn't ever after
We'll fight, not out of spite For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own But they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken
In the end only kindness matters In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's hands

I'm Sensitive lyrics

I was thinking that I might fly today Just to disprove all the things you say
It doesn't take a talent to be mean Your words can crush things that are unseen
So please be careful with me, I'm sensitive And I'd like to stay that way.
You always tell me that is impossible To be respected and be a girl
Why's it gotta be so complicated? Why you gotta tell me if I'm hated?
So please be careful with me, I'm sensitive And I'd like to stay that way.
I was thinking that it might do some good If we robbed the cynics and took all their food
That way what they believe will have taken place And we can give it to people who have some faith
So please be careful with me, I'm sensitive And I'd like to stay that way.
I have this theory that if we're told we're bad Then that's the only idea we'll ever have
But maybe if we are surrounded in beauty Someday we will become what we see
'Cause anyone can start a conflict it's harder yet to disregard it
I'd rather see the world from another angle We are everyday angels
Be careful with me 'cause I'd like to stay that way
