  • I'm a new soul
    I came to this strange world
    Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
    But since I came here
    Felt the joy and the fear
    Finding myself making every possible mistake

    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

    See I'm a young soul
    In this very strange world
    Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake
    But why all this hate?
    Try to communicate
    Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

    Ooh

    This is a happy end
    'Cause you don't understand
    Everything you have done
    Why's everything so wrong?
    This is a happy end
    Come and give me your hand
    I'll take you far away

    I'm a new soul (this is a happy end)
    I came to this strange world
    Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
    But since I came here (this is a happy end)
    Felt the joy and the fear
    Finding myself making every possible mistake

    I'm a new soul (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    (La-la-la-la-la-la)
    In this very strange world (la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
    Making every possible mistake (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    (La-la-la-la-la-la)
    Possible mistake (la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
    Every possible mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la)
    Mistakes, mistakes, more mistakes (la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
    Mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes, mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la)
    (La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
    Take a mistake, take, take a mistake
    Take, take a mistake, take Writer/s: David Donatien, Yael Naïm
