State of Independence
Donna Summer Lyrics


State of life, may I live, may I love
Coming out the sky, I name me a name
Coming out silver word for what it is
It is very nature of the sound, the game

Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablamidi, shablamida

Shablimidi, shablamida
Shablimidi, shablamida
Shablimidi, shablamida

Shot to the soul the flame of oroladian
Essence of the word
The state of independence

Sounds like a signal from you
Bring me to meet your sound
And I will bring you to my heart

Love, like a signal you call
Touching my body, my soul
Bring to me, you to meet me here

Home, be the temple of your heart
Home, be the body of your love
Just like holy water to my lips
(Hey, hey)

Yes, I do know how I survive
Yes, I do know why I'm alive
To love and be with you
Day by day by day by day

Time, time again, it is said
We will hear, we will see
See it all in his wisdom hear

His truth will abound the land
This truth will abound the land
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be

Say, yeah-e-yay, yeah-e-yo
Yeah-e-yay, yeah-e-yo
Be the sound of higher love today
Yeah-e-yeah (hey, hey)

Time, time again, it is said
We will hear, we will see
See it all in his wisdom hear

His truth will abound the land
This truth will abound the land
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be

Lyrics
State of life, may I live, may I love
Coming out the sky, I name me a name
Coming out silver word for what it is
It is very nature of the sound, the game
Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablamidi, shablamida
Siamese, Indonese, to Tibet treat the life
As a game, if you please (hey)
Coming up Caribee such a freedom
Derives from a meditative state
Movin' on, believe that's it, call it magic
Third world, it is, I only guessed it
Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablamidi, shablamida
Shablimidi, shablamida
Shablimidi, shablamida
Shablimidi, shablamida
Shot to the soul the flame of Oroladian
(The) essence of the word
The state of independence
Sounds like a signal from you
Bring me to meet your sound
And I will bring you to my heart
Love, like a signal you call
Touching my body, my soul
Bring to me, you to meet me here
Home, be the temple of your heart
Home, be the body of your love
Just like holy water to my lips
(hey, hey)
Yes, I do know how I survive
Yes, I do know why I'm alive
To love and be with you
Day by day by day by day
Time, time again, it is said
We will hear, we will see
See it all in His wisdom hear
His truth will abound the land
This truth will abound the land
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
Say, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Be the sound of higher
Love today
Yeah (hey, hey)
Time, time again, it is said
We will hear, we will see
See it all in His wisdom hear
His truth will abound the land
This truth will abound the land
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be

Hello David,

You are most welcome. I'm sure you know I just did a copy and paste of the lyrics using Google. I didn't type out the song longhand so to speak. The very first thing I used Google for all those years ago was to read the lyrics of songs. By the way I have a beautiful pair of BeyerDynamic DT 770 Pro headphones.

Happy New Year,

Peter.

Hello Ash,

I didn't know that and I might not have your in depth knowledge of music. I hope you won't be too taken aback when I tell you I have never heard of Jon Anderson. Let me learn more about Jon later.

All the best and many thanks,

Peter.

It's a Saturday in the Fall of 1982, I'm a sophomore in high school raking leaves at a neighbor's house... I have a small boombox sitting off to the side playing a pop station. It's been an overcast day, and a light rain (more of a sprinkle) begins to fall right as this song starts playing. I'm totally groovin to it, and as the song crescendo starts building 2/3's of the way through, the sun starts coming through the clouds, illuminating the yard, glinting off wet leaves, and making the resulting sunshower shimmer in the air.
I remember just standing there holding the rake, open-mouthed, covered in goosebumps as the choir sang the chorus at the end, the sound seeming to fill the yard... and then it was over. The next song segued in, and the sun went back behind the clouds less than a minute later.
30+ years later and this song still gives me full body goosebumps, and brings back that memory in great detail. Obviously, props to Donna for rocking this song... but master kudos to Quincy Jones for taking a good song (from Jon & Vangelis) and knocking it out of the effing park.
