Are you ready for the caravan of love?

So this morning I found myself singing this tune on my way back from collecting something from the post office: “Caravan of Love”, The Housemartins.

I love the lyrics:

are you ready for the time of your life
it’s time to stand up and fight
it’s alright it’s alright

Hand in hand we’ll take a caravan to the motherland
one by one we’re gonna stand up with pride
one that can’t be denied stand up stand up
from the highest mountain valley low
we’ll join together with hearts of gold

[…] Every woman every man join the caravan of love
stand up stand up stand up
everybody take a stand join the caravan of love
stand up stand up stand up

I’m your brother
I’m your brother don’t you know
she’s my sister
she’s my sister don’t you know

We’ll be living in a world of peace
in the day when every one is free
we’ll bring the young and the old
won’t you let your love flow from your heart

These words tell so much of how I feel about this world and how I wish matters were for Mother Earth.

While walking back my late mother came back to my mind. In the few times when she would be happy, sometimes you could hear her singing some old tunes while going around the house. I loved to hear that – she was such a gentle and generous spirit and I feel really sorry that she had a hard and unhappy life with my father. I so wish she could have had the life she deserved, for her good spirit and many talents.

Sorry I brought back a personal and sad topic, after the cheerful song!

Isn’t it lovely when you find yourself or others singing a tune from the bottom of their heart?

Have you recently found yourself singing?
