Savages – Adore

An emotional masterpiece with words so powerful they pierce through the music and reach deep within our soul. Every touch of the guitar comes at just the right moment. It’s one of those rare songs when the singing is in perfect symbiosis with the music.

The video lifts the melody to unfathomable heights. It is audio-visual poetry at its best. My recommended journey is to first listen to the song while reading the lyrics. Only then, armed with a hint of opinion and words of knowledge, should you delve into the depths of a work of art in body language.

It’s not often that I post the full lyrics of a song, but in this case, it’s not only recommended, but outright necessary. I discussed the meaning of the lyrics and the video with several friends and was surprised to see how much it splits the crowd.

“If only I didn’t want the world
I wouldn’t make you feel so sad
I’m sure my shame would be gone
Is it human to adore life?

If only I’d hidden my lust
And starved a little bit more
If only I didn’t ask for more
Is it human to adore life?

I adore life

If only I’d lived beyond regret
I wouldn’t feel guilt for what I take
Is it human to ask for more?
Is it human to adore life?

I know evil when I see it
I know good and I just do it
If I hadn’t been so starved
Is it human to adore life?

I understand the urgency of life
In the distance there is truth which cuts like a knife
Maybe I will die maybe tomorrow so I need to say

I adore life

If only I had been more shy
And hid every tear I cried
If only I didn’t wish to die
Is it human to adore life?

If only I didn’t care so much
For the feel of your cold, cold touch
In every bed I leave behind
Is it human to adore life?

I understand the urgency of life
In the distance there is truth which cuts like a knife
Maybe I will die maybe tomorrow so I need to say

I adore life

I adore life

Do you adore life?”

Me, yes, I must confess I adore life.
