12 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana July 7" Learning from love By CHARLIE MARTIN Catholic News Service ADIA Adia, I do believe I failed you./Adia, I know I've let you down./Don't you know I tried so hard/To love you in my way?/It's easy, let it go. Adia, I'm empty since you left me./I try to find a way to carry on./I search myself and everyone/To see where we went wrong./There's no one left to finger./No one left to blame./No one left to talk to, honey./There is no one left/To buy our inno- cence. REFRAIN We are born innocent./Believe me, Adia./We are still innocent./It's easy./We all falter./Does it matter?/Believe me, Adia.

What do Sara McLachlin, Bonnie Raitt, and the Indigo Girls have in common? If you know the answer, you are likely familiar with Lilith Fair, a trav- eling tour of some of today's best pop artists. McLachlin is also currently on the charts with "Adia," a cassingle off her very successful "Surfac- ing" disc. The song is an interesting tale of a failing relationship. The girl in the song is surprised at what has hap- pened. She has spoken with "everyone to see where we went wrong." She realizes that there is "no one left to finger, there's no one left to blame." She always "thought that we could make it... (but) I can't change the way you feel." Despite the disappointment she sings, "We are born innocent .... We are still innocent." Yet the truth remains: The romance seems to be over. Most of us do enter romantic relationships "inno- cent." This innocence is also lack of experience. We don't know what we need to know. Sometimes individuals have unrealistic expecta- tions about first romances. A worthwhile goal in dat- ing is to learn about relationships rather than to r-==-'" I THE CATHOLIC  .............

Writer- director Don Roos tries to make the lumpy proceedings seem amusingly madcap rather than contrived but the effort gets lost in convoluted subplots and a superficial end- ing. Stylized violence, comic treatment of sexual situations, a troubled childbirth scene, some rough language and occasional profanity. The USCC classification is A-W adults, with reservations. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Small Soldiers" (DreamWorks) Mean-spirited fantasy mixes live action and animation in a story of toy soldiers coming to life bent on destroying rival peaceful toys, but in the process the aggressors also target two families housing the enemy toys.
