Little light of love – Eric Serra (The Fifth Element soundtrack)

 

Eric Serra Little Light Of Love Lyrics

From a little light of love 
I was born and in my cry, my cry 
Was a little light of love 
For the honoring of life 
And the Pharos of my soul 
Is this light of love 
Precious little light of love 
There’s a candle burning on 
In the breezy shades of night 
I keep up my faith and underset my hope 
To call on a realm of light 
A treasure 
Your shimmer 
In the middle of the shady desert 
Brings on a field of light 
In a light of love 
Fairy light of love 
Only one religion 
Will lead us to the love we aim for 
Over the dark illusions 
Of the warring nations 
A wind of anger leads the power 
The destruction glorifier 
And when the war is nearly over 
How come the leader’s held in high honors 
Would you die 
For their lie 
The greedy hunting cry 
Rely on your light 
Little loving light 
A little light of sole religion 
We will lead a light of love 
A little light of soaring freedom 
Just a little light of love 
A little light of sole religion 
Take this little light of love 
A little light of love and freedom 
Take me 
A little light of soul religion 
A little light of love and freedom

Éric Serra’s father Claude was a famous French songwriter in the 1950s and ’60s, and, as such, Éric was exposed to music and its production at a young age. His mother died when he was just seven years old. In the early ’80s, Serra met director Luc Besson and was asked to score his first movie Le Dernier Combat (1983). Serra has scored all of Besson’s directed movies to date, except Angel-A (2005) (scored by Anja Garbarek), and several that Besson has written such as Wasabi.

In 1995, Éric Serra was chosen to compose the score to the James Bond film GoldenEye, and produced a much more modern-sounding avant-garde soundtrack compared to previous Bond films. It met with mixed reviews from film critics. Serra’s score is often criticized by Bond fans, and is considered the farthest departure from a traditional Bond score and, by some, as the most inappropriate in the series history. Others find it highly innovative, with the main problem the lack of John Barry’s traditional theme. The producers later hired John Altman to provide the music for the tank chase in St. Petersburg. Serra’s original track for that sequence can still be found on the soundtrack as “A Pleasant Drive In St. Petersburg”.

Occasionally, and mainly due to his album released by this name, he is known in credits as RXRA (pronounced like his name, in French). An example is “Little Light of Love” on The Fifth Element soundtrack, which is credited to RXRA.
