Eventually we decided to take the song “unfaithful” by Rihana who she is among the happening one in town. Basically we took that as the rhythm of the song is very nice and easy to sing. But somehow the lyrics of the song didn’t bring much thought for me, at the same time its not a very meaningful one that I could talk about. Thus, here I would like to share with you all, a song that might be one of my favorite as I like the melody as well as the lyrics too. The song which I wanted to share here is “Flying without wings” sang by the once very popular boy band (haha) Westlife. I really like the song since I first heard the song. The rhythm of it is a very comfortable and easy listening one…

Everybody's looking for that something

One thing that makes it all complete
You find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover's eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you've found that special thing
You're flying without wings

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You'll find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry

You'll find it in the deepest friendship
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much that means
You've found that special thing
You're flying without wings

So, impossible as it may seem
You've got to fight for every dream
Cos who's to know which one you let go
Would have made you complete

Well, for me it's waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
At any given time or place

It's little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it's like flying without wings
Cos you're my special thing
I'm flying without wings

And you're the place my life begins
and you'll be where it ends
I'm flying without wings
And that's the joy you bring
I'm flying without wings

Basically the song is not just a simple romantic love song but a song about love, one love of all and for all. Include love of family, friend, love of life, and nature. In the first stanza we can see that the writer is trying to tell that that’s a very unique and special thing that can’t be definite, which everybody is searching for it through out theirs life time.
As for me, I interpret this way. The special thing might be the satisfaction that you gain when you do something that you love or to or with your love one. At the first stanza too it shows that the special thing you might find it somewhere you wouldn’t know.
Then in the second stanza, the song writer is giving example of different people found the satisfaction by different source. They are somebody who find it in the face of their children, some find it in their lover’s eye. He describe that if you found this special thing, you’ll be flying without wings. It show that the satisfaction of love is something very abstract, is something deep in your soul, you will never know it.
In the lyrics, the writer had bring out that the truth where simple little thing will make someone flying, and to different people, different reason will cause them so. The song also encourages us to be brave on fighting to reach our dream, because we used to think that it was impossible as it seems so. But if you let go of it or give up on it, how in earth you knew that it was not the one that completed you, not the one that put on the wings on you.
In the following part, was the singer’s confession to his girl, somehow for me, its really sound sweet. He wanted to do every little thing to the girl and the girl was the one that make him fly. He confesses that she was where he begin, and he will end there, indicate that the girl was his one and only beloved. Lastly the girl has bring him the joy of flying without wings. Its such a romantic and meaningful song, right?
