Yael Naim – New Soul lyrics

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take

But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake


La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

See I'm a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

This is a happy end
Cause you don't understand
Everything you have done
Why's everything so wrong


This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I'll take you far away

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

New soul... (la, la, la, la,...)
In this very strange world...
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes...

    "This is a happy end, 'coz you don't understand". This particular line of the song strikes a lot. Life is full of "downs" than "ups". Life must still be happy and vibrant when one doesn't seem to understand. It's an opportunity for us to continue proving ourselves more. "This is a happy end, come and give me your hand, I'll take you far away". This is a triumphant moment for us to take the people around us in knowing their worth and together we could all realize that we are all new souls hoping to learn a bit but how to give and take.

    I give Yael Naim a lot of credit for this song. I was actually looking for it for about an hour and I finally found it. I enjoy it because its catchy and there is a positive lesson to be learned here. I think that she is an immigrant moving to a new place, being too giving and trusting but making the mistake of trusting and giving to the wrong people "trying to learn a bit about what is real and fake." She is a loving and caring person in a country full of dirty sharks. At least this is my interpretation. She is definately a new soul in this world!

    "I'm a new soul" as opposed to an "old soul". If you've ever heard the term old soul, someone who is very wise/ a soul that has been here before, (reincarnation) then you'd understand that it is inconsequential/inevitable for new souls to make every possible mistake, as they are not yet old souls and this song captures the feeling of an innocent new soul stumbiling about in this strange world.

    I think it's about how when we're younger we're so happy and carefree, but when grow up we see that the world isn't as perfect as it seems and we have come to this world to learn, but all the world teachs us is to hate. So, like a child opening their eyes (what she means by new soul), she is wondering "Why all this hate?" and why don't people understand life doesn't to be perfect to be, well, perfect. So she's making "every possible mistake" because she's not used to all this hate. And she thinks that our world is "very strange" because, once again, she's not used to it.

    I like this song because it represents me, being a new soul, in a strange world, meaning new places and new people. In life there if joy and fear and for me that is the happiness in life, like getting something new or meeting a new friend; and the fear, meaning getting in trouble or losing a valuable item. The song also says finding trust and love is not always easy to make. " that, I think, represents a lot of people, because you are not sure who to trust or who to love until later in life. Another line in the song states why all this hate. I find that there is some unexpected hate pulsing from people at you, and you want them to communicate, but they don't until you do. -finding myself making every possible mistake. " I think that represents me by I have made a lot of mistakes in life, and if I have learned anything, I will outgrow them in my new soul.
