Every now and again there comes along a song where the lyrics really mean something to you. When I first heard Annie Lennox singing Universal Child it gave me goose bumps. Her voice is so beautiful and haunting and then, when I listened carefully to the words I found I had tears running down my face. To me, these words could have been written for Penny from me. She is having such a tough time at the moment and so this song is particularly poignant.
The song still has the same effect on me - I have heard it many times now and every time my eyes fill with tears and if I am on my own I let them flow (a good cry now and again does everyone a little good).
