Pure by The Lightning Seeds
-----------------------------
Night time slows, raindrops splash rainbows
Perhaps someone you know, could sparkle and shine
As daydreams slide to colour from shadow
Picture the moonglow, that dazzles my eyes
And i love you

Just lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple everytime
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple everytime

Dreams of sights, of sleigh rides in seasons
Where feelings not reasons, can make you decide
As leaves pour down, splash autumn on gardens
As colder nights harden, their moonlit delights
And i love you

Just lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple everytime
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple everytime

Look at me with starry eyes
Push me up to starry skies
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple everytime
Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you

If love's the truth then look no lies
And let me swin around your eyes
I've found a place i'll never leave
Shut my mouth and just believe
Love is the truth i relize
Not a stream of pretty lies
To use us up and waste our time

Lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple everytime
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple everytime

Look at me with starry eyes
Push me up to starry skies
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple everytime
Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you
Pure and simple just for you

    I think what he is saying is to not think so hard and follow you're heart. However pretty this song is i have mixed feelings about this message. I feel that it's the right combination of feelings & reasons that make for good decisions. Not to under think nor over think love. If you don't think enough you can walk right into trouble. If you think too much you can confuse yourself. I think that to say "feelings not reasons can help you decide" is very dangerous and can over complicate things instead of simplify. However, it's mostly a pretty love song with a simple message. I still love this song even though i have doubts about it's message. Like i said, it's a pretty song that wins people over with it's charm, however... All that shines isn't gold.
