Being Woman, In relationship, Inspire, The Self

We belong to the light

I first heard this song in Pat Benatar’s concert in Sydney. Amidst the sounds, these lyrics from the Chorus spoke to me:

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We’ve both fallen under

Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

So I spent years humming this chorus, sometimes singing at the top of my lungs when no one was around :-).  It was not until recently that I ‘discovered’ the lyrics to the stanzas. Incredible how I could be so focused on the chorus, to have not heard the stanzas; and how they change the colour of this song!

Anyway, here is the music video – the lyrics are beautifully crafted and each of us will no doubt have a different take on it.


  We can’t begin to know it
How much we really care
I hear your voice inside me
I see your face everywhere

What does it speak to you about?
