Alanis Morissette - Ablaze

English

Ablaze

First thing that you'll notice is some separation from each other
Yes, it's a lie, we've been believing since time immemorial
There was an apple, there was a snake, there was division
There was a split, there was a conflict in the fabric of life
 
One became two and then everyone was out for themselves
Everyone was pitted against each other; conflict ruled the realm
All our devotions and temperaments are pulled from different wells
They seem to easily forget we are made of the same cells
 
To my boy, all that energy so wild
Love your hues and your blues in equal measure
Your comings and your goings-away
My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
 
Second thing you'll notice is that often we think that there's not enough
It might feel dark, it might feel lonely and you'll wonder why you're here
You may be overcome with darkness and a sense of hopelessness
But it won't matter if you keep your core connected to the oneness
 
To my girl, all your innocence and fire
When you reach out, I am here hell or high water
This nest is never going away
My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
 
And this cord is unbreakable
This pilot light is there in your pocket
And this bond, beyond unshakable
Even if we all forgot
All at the same time
If we forget at the same time
 
To my boy, my precious gentle warrior, to your sweetness
And your strength and exploring
May this bond stay with you through all your days
My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
 
To my girl, all your innocence and fire
When you reach out, I am here hell or high water
This nest is never going away
My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
 
(To my boy...)
First thing that you’ll notice is that everything is temporary
(To my girl...)
Next thing you might notice is that we will always be a family
(To my boy...)
My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
 
Thanks!

Hey, there.

Thanks for letting me know, it's been updated. But in which part is this 'girls'? I couldn't get it.

My pleasure. "To my grils" in all parts she talks to her girls

I couldn't hear it and the lyrics in the subtitles don't use the plural... It seems she says 'girl' anyway.

My mistake! Sorry! I used the lyrics from genius and i assumed to hear it clearly in a line also. But it's make no sense... . She has two boys and one daughter... . 🌈🦄
