Sowing The Seeds of Love Lyrics - Tears For Fears

Review The Song (5)



High time we made a stand & shook up the views of the common man
And the love train rides from coast to coast
DJ's the man we love the most
Could you be, could you be squeaky clean
And smash any hope of democracy
As the headline says you're free to choose
There's egg on your face and mud on your shoes
One of these days they're gonna call in the ruse, yeah

(Sowing the seeds of love) anything is possible
(Seeds of love) when you're sowing the seeds of love
(Sowing the seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love) anything is possible
(Seeds of love) sowing the seeds of love (Sowing the seeds)

I spy tears in their eyes
They look to the skies for some kind of divine intervention
Food goes to waste, so nice to eat, so nice to taste
sponsored links
Politician Granny with your high ideals
Have you no idea how the majority feels
So without love and a promised land
We're fools to the rules of a government plan
Kick out the style, bring back the jam

(Sowing the seeds of love) anything (seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love) (Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love)
Sowing the seeds, the birds and the bees, my girlfriend and me in love

Feel the pain, talk about it, if you're a worried man then shout about it
Open hearts, feel about it, open minds, think about it
Everyone read about it, everyone scream about it
Everyone (everyone, yeah yeah)
Everyone (everyone) read about it, read about it
Read it in the books in the crannies
And the nooks there are books to read...Chorus!!!

(Sowing the seeds of love) Oh, the seeds of love
We're sowing the seeds, sowing the seeds

We're sowing the seeds of love. we're sowing the seeds
Sowing the seeds of love, we're sowing the seeds of love
(Mr. England sowing the seeds of love)

(Time to eat all your words, swallow your pride, open your eyes)
Time to eat all your words, swallow your pride, open your eyes
High time we made a stand (time to eat all your words)
And shook up the views of the common man (swallow your pride)
And the love train rides from coast to coast (open your eyes)
Every minute of every hour "I Love a Sunflower" (open your eyes)
And I believe in love power (open your eyes)
Love power, love (open your eyes) power

(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love…Sowing the seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love)
We're sowing the seeds (sowing the seeds of love)
Sowing the seeds of love, we're sowing the seeds (seeds of love)
Sowing the seeds, an end to need, and the politics of greed with love
(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love, sowing the seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love) anything (seeds of love) anything
(Sowing the seeds of love, Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds, an end to need, and the politics of greed with love)
(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love, sowing the seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love, sowing the seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love, sowing the seeds of love)
(Sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love)

The Shift of the Ages | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/7/12

This song, given time, will be seen to mark the beginning of the great shift in human consciousness, which kicked off with the Harmonic Convergence in August of 1987.
It captures the start perfectly, a shift that 2012 marks the halfway point.
What an amazing piece.

I Honestly LOVE THIS SONG | Reviewer: Mikeysea | 1/21/11

But i Lmao when i heard a Parody Titles Stealing The Songs of John, George & Paul. You gotta admitt it sounds like The Beatles. Esp The Anthology Songs Prouduced by Jeff Lynn Of E.L.O. Btw in the previous past revies. 1 way or the other both artist were mentioned.

A song for the times | Reviewer: SpyvsSpy | 6/24/10

A friend of ours was staying with us and put on a Tears For Fears collection cd that I had totally forgotten I even owned. Sowing the Seeds of Love came on and I thought "wow, this song is as relevant now as it was in the 80's". I'm so glad I've rediscovered this music, it's nothing short of therapy :)

One Of The 80's, post 60's Songs ever written | Reviewer: SpaceDancer | 3/15/10

"Sowing The Seeds Of Love" may be a quintessential 1980's song, but it's roots are firmly in the 1960's & '70's with references to "Love train" (remember "The Peace Train"?) and it's Beatle-esque production as well as some serious "I Am The Walrus" vocal styling...
But this song is bigger, more "in your face" about it's message, a quality that separated Tears For Fears from ANY other band, before or since... Just listen to "Shout".

When I first heard "Sowing The Seeds" on the radio, I thought Paul McCartney had released an secret track he and John had done, that had never made the light of day.
NO! it can't be! ... er.. possibly Electric Light Orchestra? (ELO)
Nah... but kinda sorta.
It does have "THAT SOUND"... but updated and "powerized" for the 1980's.

Parts of the verses are reminiscent of John and Paul's collective wordplay. Even the drum fills are very very Ringo.

That said, the song is no ripoff, NOT EVEN CLOSE! The homage is genuine and the message is universal yet completely original, updated for "The Me Generation"...

Too bad they didn't listen...

This song stands the test of time. Recently (2010), while filling my car at a gas station that makes you listen to music, I heard it, and thought.. "OH MAN!, someone's done a remake or a cover. I checked... nope.
I just hadn't heard a remastered digital mix of the song in 15 years.
So there you go, all I was hearing were subtleties that my old gear couldn't reproduce.
This remains one of my top 25 songs of all time: lyrics, music, production, everything.
Do something good for your soul... listen to the song again, soon.
You'll see what I mean.
