Estelle
A Man Called Adam Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You can always recognize it
Like you recognize the faith
Once you've got it you won't lose it
And it doesn't run away

You can push it from your mind
Never give it any time
Say it isn't what I need
But it's like holding back the sea

Love comes in and fills up everywhere
Love comes in and fills up everywhere

It's a mystic transformation
From the darkness to the light
It's as sudden as the morning
Gotta keep an end in sight

Where there's sadness in the moon
There will be hope and light again, and soon

Love comes in and fills up everywhere
Love comes in and fills up everywhere
It fills up everywhere

You can push it from your mind
Never give it any time
Say it isn't what I need
But it's like holding back the sea

Love comes in and fills up everywhere
Love comes in and fills up everywhere
And it fills up, and it fills up everywhere




Love comes in and fills up everywhere
Love comes in and fills up everywhere

Does anyone know what the man is saying in the beginning?

Rapture Music

I would love to know that too! Como so non? Sounds like What is your name. But what does the rest of the words mean?

Danwise

I’ve been trying to figure it out for so many years…
“Comme se nome?” “estelle!” “y…… sumeguda?” “BU DE TA!” “BU DE TA?”

Not actual transcription of the audio but it’s all I ever hear!
If anyone knows what language it is would be a big help!
Cuba? Brazil? Argentina? Spanish? I just feel like it’s South American. Please someone!
