Video

"Feeding Off The Love Of The Land" es una canción compuesta por Stevie Wonder años atras, en los años 70. Aparece al final de la película Jungle Fever de 1991 en los créditos, y curiosamente no aparece en el álbum. Su presencia se hace protagonista también al aparecer junto al lanzamiento del sencillo llamado "Gotta Have You".

Esta canción también formó parte de un álbum de 1990 para ayudar a los niños huérfanos de Rumanía. Su título era Nobody's Child: Romanian Angel Appeal, y allí también contribuían artistas como Elton John, Van Morrison, o Paul Simon entre otros.
Feeding Off The Love of the Land
Rumores también llegaban a apuntar que la canción podría haber formado parte de un álbum abandonado por Stevie Wonder titulado "Fulfillingness' Second Finale". Sensibilidad, delicadeza, y buen gusto en la composición, algo nada extrañable si estamos hablando del genio Stevie Wonder.






Feeding Off The Love Of The Land

Letra

Seems the wisdom of man hasn't got much wiser
Than the very beginning of our time
Agree or war has been our way of compromising
Let live and love has become our biggest lie

Seems to me that fools are even more foolish
Thinking of themselves and nobody else
But then if asked for poor will riches be replenished
They say boot straps must be pulled up by themselves

Feeding off the love of the land
Leaving much to be desired

Living off the love of the Lord
While the price for life is higher

Isn't love to be admired
Has the good in man expired
Stealing all the love and the beauty from the land

I awake each morning to the birds a-singing
Singing out to God to come and save his own
But when throughout the world the cry of love is ringing
Is then when He'll stop to hear our song

Did you know that when you feel the earth a-shaken
It's only mother nature with a crying heart
You see we have taken from her for so many ages
Will there be a time when taking stops and giving starts

'Cause we're feeding off the love of the land
Leaving much to be desired

Living off the love of the Lord
While the price for life is higher

Isn't love to be admired
Has the good in man expired
Stealing all the love and the beauty from the land

Yes we are feeding off the love of the land
Never hearing what He's saying

Living off the love of the Lord
Never feeling what you're praying

Never praising Him for beauty
Only praying God please give me

Stealing all the love and the beauty from the land
Stealing all the love and the beauty from His land
