Okay, I don't mean to chance the tempo here.....but this has been bugging me. Ever since I was a young guy I always thought this song was about an interstellar traveller.....(as in some that are here now.....it just SEEMS to be so like some of their stories?) Sorry if it isn't good AND juicy. I'll make it up later.....


Gypsy

A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Travelling in panic all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Left without a hope of coming home

Speeding through a shadow of a million years
Darkness is the only sound to reach his ears
Frightening him with the visions of eternity
Screaming for a future that can never be
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Left without a hope of coming home

A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Travelling in panic all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Left without a hope of coming home

I Knew I Loved You

Maybe it's intuition
but some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
And there it goes,
I think I found my best friend
I know that it might sound
more than a little crazy
but I believe...

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only the sense of completion
And in your eyes, I see
the missing pieces I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home
I know that it might sound
more than a little crazy
but I believe...

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

Artist: Christina Aguilera
Album: Stripped
Title: Loving Me For Me


People ask if I'm in love with you
Because I'm sitting here with your picture
And smiling to myself
I'm kinda lost in my own thoughts of you
My heart speaks before my mind thinks through
And I blush as I say yes

What a feeling of vulnerability coming over me
And I'm feeling weak and I can't speak
Never thought I'd give in so willingly to a human being
With abilities to set me free
Free, make me be me
Makes me want to say

Your lips, your love, your smile, your kiss
I must admit it's a part of me
You please me, complete me, believe me
Like a melody
Your soul, your flow, your youth, your truth is simply proof
We were meant to be
But the best quality thats hookin' me
Is that you're loving me for me
Is that you're loving me for me

People ask why I'm in love with you
Well, let me start by saying
You got my heart by just being who you are
And what we got is between me and you
It doesn't matter about the money I make
Or what I do, or that I'm a, huh, a star

Unconditionally you're there for me
Undeniably you inspire me, spiritually, so sweet
This is meaningful, is incredible, pleasurable, unforgettable
The way I feel, so sweet
Makes me want to say

Your lips, your love, your smile, your kiss
I must admit it's a part of me
You please me, complete me, believe me
Like a melody
Your soul, your flow, your youth, your truth is simply proof
We were meant to be
But the best quality thats hookin' me
Is that you're loving me for me
Is that you're loving me for me

Its so amazing how something so sweet
Has come and rearranged my life
I've been kissed by destiny
Oh, heaven came and saved me
An angel was placed at my feet
This isn't ordinary, he's loving me for me

Stripped of all make up, no need for fancy clothes
No cover ups, push ups
With him, I dont have to put on a show
He loves every freckle, every curve, every inch of my skin
Fulfilling me entirely, taking all of me in
He's real,he's honest, he's loving me for me
Yeah :-) :-)

Hold on-Kansas

Look in the mirror and tell me
Just what you see
What have the years of your life
Taught you to be
Innocence dyin' in so many ways
Things that you dream of are lost
Lost in the haze
Hold on, baby, hold on
'Cause it's closer than you think
And you're standing on the brink
Hold on, baby, hold on
'Cause there's something on the way
Your tomorrow's not the same as today
Don't you recall what you felt
When you weren't alone
Someone who stood by your side
A face you have known
Where do you run when it's too much to bear
Who do you turn to in need
When nobody's there
Outside your door He is waiting
Waiting for you
Sooner or later you know
He's got to get through
No hesitation and no holding back
Let it all go and you'll know
You're on the right track
Hold on, baby, hold on
'Cause it's closer than you think
And you're standing on the brink
Hold on, baby, hold on
'Cause there's something on the way
Your tomorrow's not the same as today

:-)

The Keeper Of The Stars Lyrics
Artist: Tracy Byrd
Album: Keepers


It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me
As I look at you tonight

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

So I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew.

From my high school days:

Group: Klaatu (on Apple records)
Song: The Little Neutrino

(In a heavily synthesized voice: )

Across your open mind
I trace erratic lines
In motion and in time

I fought a battle won
To the surface of the sun
Through fires on and on

It's only you
It can't be me
For I myself refuse to be
I am someone you'll never know
I am the little neutrino

Solus is not far away
It's face is brighter than a day
So don't turn me away

It's only you
It can't be me
For I myself refuse to be
I am someone you'll never know
I am the little neutrino

And now I'm passing through
The one who is known as you
And yet, you'll never know I do
I really do
Guarantees? Never. Possibilities? Always.

Gravity Eyelids

Open your eyes now
Hear me out before I lose my mind
I've been waiting for hours
Let the salt flow,feel my coil unwind

Give me a smile please
Count the calm and watch me breathing slow
Winding me up tease
Get inside my head and make it show

Gravity Eyelids come down

Touching your oil skin
Hands slip down past your waist to find
I've been waiting for hours
Let the salt flow,feel my coil unwind
Go to the edge and swim

Porcupine Tree
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

Gravity Guild

I'm out on a ledge looking down
Priorities changing instantly
Open,exposed..Breaking down
Until everything becomes clear to me

If I could only just slow down
I know I'd feel you every day
I've made up my mind
And nothing can ever take this away

Nothings ever set in stone
Clutch your stone and don't let go

I dive into white wash
Breaking through the curl of blue
I tame the chaos
Water cools and makes anew

Oh brother of mine
Help my - self to redefine
To use the stepping stone
To never be alone

Now I know to take it slow
Clutch that stone and don't let go
Friend or foe the ebb and flow
Have to show room to grow

This is my stepping stone
To never be alone
You are My stepping stone
My stepping stone

SLO lyrics
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

Almost Paradise

I feared my heart would beat in secrecy
and faced the nights alone
But how could I have known
all my life I only needed you

Paradise

I thought that perfect love was too hard to find
I'd almost given up
You must have read my mind

Paradise

And all those dreams I saved for a rainy day
They're finally coming true
So I'll share them with you

Almost paradise
Were knocking on heavens door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more
I swear that I can see
forever in your eyes
Paradise

And in your arms salvations not that far away
It's getting closer...
Closer every day

Almost paradise
We're knocking on heavens door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more
I swear I can see
forever in your eyes
Paradise
Paradise

Footloose lyrics
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

livin on love

Two young people, without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings
And settle with just what they need
Living on love
She don't care 'bout what's in style
She just likes the way he smile
It takes more than marvel and time
Living on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
It's like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn't take much, when you get enough
Livin' on love

...... Instrumental......

Two old people, without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side on that front porch swing
Livin' on love

He can't see anymore
She can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they walk through that door
Just livin' on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
It's like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn't take much, when you get enough
Livin' on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
It's like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn't take much, when you get enough
Livin' on love
No, It doesn't take much, when you get enough
Livin' on love

What I listen to on my way to work sometimes
(real loud)

In the white room with black curtains near the station.
Blackroof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings.
Silver horses ran down moonbeams in your dark eyes.
Dawnlight smiles on you leaving, my contentment.
I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines;
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.
You said no strings could secure you at the station.
Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows.
I walked into such a sad time at the station.
As I walked out, felt my own need just beginning.
I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back;
Lie with you where the shadows run from themselves.
At the party she was kindness in the hard crowd.
Consolation for the old wound now forgotten.
Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes.

She's just dressing, goodbye windows, tired starlings.
I'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd;
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves.


Cream, White Room lyrics
"Who knows?" "We'll see."

welcome firestarter
Love Cream.. what a 'Band'

Everythings Alright

After All
All the things we've been through
I think I know
Enough to say I know you

Everything is all right
If you want it to be
Everything is alright
With me
So take your time
Before you set your mind to make
things right

Everything is alright
If you want it to be
Everything is alright
With me
So take your time
Before you set your mind to make
Things right

If it's time
That you need I'll give it
If it's wine
Well thats my greed I'll admit it

And of course, my personal favorite:

Southern Cross
Got out of town on a boat goin' to southern islands
Sailing a reach before a following sea
She was making for the trades on the outside
And the downhill run to Papeete
Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
We got eighty feet of the waterline
nicely making way
In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
But on the midnight watch I realized
Why twice you ran away.....

Think about how many times I have fallen
Spirits are usin' me, larger voices callin'
What heaven brought you and me
Cannot be forgotten
I have been around the world
Lookin' for that woman/girl
Who knows love can endure
And you know it will.....

When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
You understand now why you came this way
'Cause the truth you might be running from
Is so small
But it's as big as the promise
The promise of a comin' day

So I'm sailin' for tomorrow
My dreams are a dyin'
And my love is an anchor tied to you
Tied with a silver chain
I have my ship
And all her flags are a flyin'
She is all that I have left
And Music is her name...

Think about how many times I have fallen
Spirits are usin' me, larger voices callin'
What heaven brought you and me
Cannot be forgotten
I have been around the world
Lookin' for that woman/girl
Who knows love can endure
And you know it will
And you know it will...

So we cheated and we lied and we tested
And we never failed to fail...
It was the easiest thing to do
You will survive being bested
Somebody fine will come along
Make me forget about lovin' you
And the Southern Cross...

And for any of you who don't know, Avalon is the main port on Catalina Island, which is off the Southern California coast, and that natural stopping point for cruisers heading to the South Pacific. The two most popular bars there are the Marlin Club, and the Chichi club. Very noisy and full of character. I spent some time there in my misguided youth with some of my scuba diving friends.

SC, that is one of my favorite CSN songs, from one of my favorite of their albums!

_____

I haven't been motivated to post lyrics in a long time.....but I have been reading what you all post, and have been enjoying it, and all the links to videos, and such.

My contribution for today:


---------------


The dream police
They live inside of my head
The dream police
They come to me in my bed
The dream police
They're coming to arrest me
Oh no

You know that talk is cheap
And rumors ain't nice
And when I fall asleep
I don't think I'll survive
The night the night

'Cause they're waiting for me
Looking for me
Every single night
(They're) driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

The dream police
They live inside of my head
The dream police
They come to me in my bed
The dream police
They're coming to arrest me
Oh no

Well I don't tell lies
'Cause they're listening to me
And when I fall asleep
Bet they're spying on me tonight,
Tonight

'Cause they're waiting for me
Looking for me
Every single night
(They're) driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

I try to sleep
They're wide awake
They won't let me alone
They don't get paid to take vacations
Or let me alone
They spy on me
I try to hide
They won't let me alone
They persecute me
They're the judge and jury all in one

'Cause they're waiting for me
Looking for me
Every single night
(They're) driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

The dream police
They live inside of my head
The dream police they come
to me in my bed

The dream police
They're coming to arrest me

The dream police (police, police)
The dream police (police, police)

(Cheap Trick)

---------

Sweet dreams, everyone!
"In the end, only kindness matters."

It's a great one.

Southern Cross,
Maybe you know that Magic was the name of David Crosby's schooner - a ship with two or more masts rigged fore and aft.

Schooners are differentiated from yawls and ketch's by the relative size and location of their masts. In a schooner, the masts are equal in height, or nearly so. In a yawl, the aftward mast is much shorter than the forward mast and aft of the helm. In a ketch, the aftward mast is also much shorter than the forward mast but is located ahead of the helm. At least, that's what I recall.
What, me worry?

Actually, it's the rudder post, not the helm per se that governs the terms ketch and yawl.

Yawls are from the South. Ketch's are a Yankee thing-ma-bob....

Mark,
I thought Crosby's boat was the "Mayan?" Since he learned to sail when he was 11, I'm sure he had quite a few boats. Cool info, though.

Now you may be right, SC.

Remember the tv show, Adventures in Paradise?

That boat was The Tiki wasn't it?

Asked and Answered:

Save Me


Save Me

I feel my wings have broken
in your hands
i feel the words unspoken
inside
when they pull you under
and i would give you any thing you want
you were all i wanted
all my dreams are fallin' down
crawlin round and round and round

Chorus:

Somebody save me
Let your warm hands break right through me
Somebody save me
I don't care how you do it
Just save me, save
Come on
I've been waiting for you

i see the world has folded in your heart
i feel the waves crash down inside
and they pull me under
and i would give you anything you want
you were all i wanted
all my dreams have fallen down
crawlin round and round and round

Repeat Chorus

all my dreams are on the ground
crawlin' round and round and round


Somebody save me

Let your warm hands break right through me
Somebody save me
i dont' care how you do it
just save me, save me
i've made this whole world shine for you
just save me, save
come on
i'm still waiting for you

--Remy Zero

Save Yourself

I know your life is empty
And you hate to face this world alone
So you're searching for an angel
Someone who can make you whole
I can not save you
I cant even save myself
So just save yourself

I know that you've been damaged
Your soul has suffered such abuse
But I am not your savior
I am just as f**ked as you
I am just as f**ked as you
I can not save you
I cant even save myself
So just save yourself

Please dont take pity on me
Please dont take pity on me
Please dont take pity on me
Please dont take pity on me

My life has been a nightmare
My soul is fractured to the bone
And if I must be lonely, I think Id rather be alone
I think Id rather be alone

You can not save me
You cant even save yourself
I can not save you
I cant even save myself
Save yourself
So just save yourself

I only said I was crazy

When I met you I was crazy in love
'Cos the real you I couldn't see
And that was long before I found out
That you were cheatin' on me

Now you're tellin' me that if I take
you back
You promise you'll always be true
Well I only said I was crazy
Not stupid in love with you

You told me that you loved me
But you were drunk at the time
An' I can see when you left me
You were leaven' the scene of a crime

You said I was your best friend
Well how come you treat me so bad?
An' I should have known' stead of
counting on you
I should have counted the beers
that you had

Now you're tellin' me that you're sorry
And you're askin' can we start anew
Well I only said I was crazy
Not stupid in love with you

They always say that once bitten
Will make a girl twice shy
An' if I should think about takin'
you back
Just give me one reason why

It's not that I don't have feelings
Just my sense of survival shows through
'Cos I only said I was crazy
Not Stupid in love with youuuuuu

I dedicate this song to the posters here (including myself) who have been caught up in all the rancor of late.



"The Trees"

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light

But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'Oppression!'
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'

Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw

by Rush

I heard it while listening to Music Choice (cable) this afternoon. I was working in the garden, trying to "lighten up" from all the stress......

I thought the timing of hearing it was pretty coincidental, because it is certainly not one of their songs that gets played often!

If we were any place else, they'd be clear cutting that forest.

How about love sweet love......


Artist: Tim McGraw
Album: Everywhere
Title: It's Your Love (with Faith Hill)


Dancin' in the dark
Middle of the night
Takin' your heart
And holdin' it tight
Emotional touch
Touchin' my skin
And askin' you to do
What you've been doin' all over again
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
I just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go

CHORUS:

It's your love
It just does somethin' to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell i'm under
Oh, it's your love


Better than I was
More than I am
And all of this happened
By takin' your hand
And who I am now
Is who I wanted to be
And now that we're together
I'm stronger than ever
I'm happy and free
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
And if you asked me why I've changed
All I gotta do is say your sweet name

(Repeat chorus)

Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think i can keep it all in
I just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go

(Repeat chorus)

It's your love
It's your love
Guarantees? Never. Possibilities? Always.

Bossa Nova classic by Antonio Carlos Jobim.

WAVE

So close your eyes for that's a lovely way to be
Aware of things your heart alone was meant to see.
The fundamental lonliness goes
whenever two can dream a dream together.

You can't deny, don't try to fight the rising sea
don't fight the moon, the stars above, and don't fight me.
The fundamental lonliness goes
whenever two can dream a dream together.

When I saw you first, the time was half past three.
When your eyes met mine, it was eternity.

For now we know, the wave is on it's way to be
don't fight the wave, don't be afraid of loving me.
The fundamental lonliness goes
whenever two can dream a dream together.
Guarantees? Never. Possibilities? Always.

Meet me half way

In a life time
Made of memories
I believe
In destiny

Meet me halfway
Across the sky
Out where the world belongs
To only you and I

In a lifetime
There is only love
Reaching for the lonely one
Know that you'll be the only one


Meet me halfway
Across the sky
Out where the world belongs
To only you and I

We are the timeless ones

Kashmir //Led Zeppelin

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I'm a traveller of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk in song from tongues of lilting grace
Sounds caress my ear
And not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear

Ooh, baby, I been blind
Oh, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'
Oh, ooh yes, I been blind

All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this razor line
Can I find, can I find where I've been

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like sorts inside a dream
Leave the path the led me to that place
Yellow desert stream
Like Shangri-la beneath the summer moon
I will return again
As the dust that floats finds you
Will move and search Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds fill my sails
Cross the sea of years
With no provision but an open face
Along the straits of fear

Oh, when I want, when I'm on my way, yeah
And my feet wear my fickle way to stay

Ooh, my baby, oh, my baby
Let me take you there

Come on, oh let me take you there
Let me take you there

Grand funk I'm you Captain

Everybody listen to me
and return me to my ship
I'm your captain I'm your captain
Although I'm feeling mighty sick

I've been lost now days uncounted
and it's months since I've seen home
Can you hear me can you hear me
Or am I all alone

If you return me to my home port
I will kiss you mother Earth
Take me back now Take me back now
To the port of my Birth

Am I in my cabin dreaming
or are you really scheming
To take my ship away from me

You'd better think about it
I just can't leave without it
So please don't take my ship from me

I feel the hand of a stranger
And it's tightening round my throat
Heaven help me Heaven help me
Take this stranger from my boat

I'm your captain I'm your captain
Although I'm feeling mighty sick
Everybody listen to me
And return me to my ship

I'm your captain
yeah..yeah..yeah..yeah
yeah..yeah..yeah..yeah
yeah..yeah..yeah..yehaaa

I Am Sailing Rod Stewart

I am sailing I am sailing
Home again across the sea
I am sailing stormy waters
To be near you to be free

I am flying I am flying
Like a bird across the sky
I am flying passing high clouds
To be with you to be free

Can you hear me can you hear me
Thro the dark night far away
I am dying forever trying
To be with you who can say

We are sailing we are sailing
Home again across the sea
We are sailing stormy waters
To be together to be free

Oh Lord to be near you
to be free
Oh Lord to be near you
to be free

"Home"
Simply Red

What's worth nothing else but love
Take a walk down any street now
Every one of us in our own little world
Looking for a heart with whom to beat now

What's worth nothing else but love
I'm prepared to take the heat now
What's worth more than anything else at all
To keep you firmly on your feet now

So fake cool image should be over
'Cause I long for a feeling of home
Real life, depicted in song
A loving memory
After long, home is a place where I yearn to belong

Where the land meets the sea
She'll be smiling so sweetly now
I hope that she'll be here much longer than I will
My heart loves her with every beat now

So fake cool image should be over
'Cause I long for a feeling of home
Real life, depicted in song
A loving memory
After long, home is a place where I yearn to belong

"You & Me"

"There's a leafless tree in Asia
Under the sun there's a homeless man
There's a forest fire in the valley
Where the story all began

What will be our last thought?
Do you think it's coming soon?
Will it be of comfort
Or the pain of a burning wound?

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop

You're an ocean full of faces
And you know that we believe
We're just a wave that drifts around you
Singing all our hopes and dreams
We look around in wonder
At the work that has been done
By the visions of our father
Touched by his loving son

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop
All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, ever, never, ever stop..."

The eyes of Margaret

When morning comes to me
I see the eyes of Margaret
I see the eyes of Margaret
When morning comes around

When she comes near me
I see the eyes of Margaret
I see the smiles of Margaret
And times rolls around

When darkness comes near her
I see a side
A pen and a letter
Have faded and died
A promise is broken
A change in the tide
Someone is singing her song

And it's na na na ......

And when she is lonely
I'll take the hand of Margaret
I'll hold the hand of Margaret
And she'll come around

And when she is troubled
I'll hear the cries of Margaret
I'll wipe the tears of Margaret
And she always comes around

When darkness comes near her
I see a side
A pen and a letter
Have faded and died
A promise is broken
A change in the tide
Someone is singing her song

Artist: Harry McClintock Lyrics
Song: In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

:D

One evening as the sun went down
And the jungle fires were burning,
Down the track came a hobo hiking,
And he said, "Boys, I'm not turning
I'm headed for a land that's far away
Besides the crystal fountains
So come with me, we'll go and see
The Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
There's a land that's fair and bright,
Where the handouts grow on bushes
And you sleep out every night.
Where the boxcars all are empty
And the sun shines every day
And the birds and the bees
And the cigarette trees
The lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
All the cops have wooden legs
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth
And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs
The farmers' trees are full of fruit
And the barns are full of hay
Oh I'm bound to go
Where there ain't no snow
Where the rain don't fall
The winds don't blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
You never change your socks
And the little streams of alcohol
Come trickling down the rocks
The brakemen have to tip their hats
And the railway bulls are blind
There's a lake of stew
And of whiskey too
You can paddle all around it
In a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
The jails are made of tin.
And you can walk right out again,
As soon as you are in.
There ain't no short-handled shovels,
No axes, saws nor picks,
I'm bound to stay
Where you sleep all day,
Where they hung the jerk
That invented work
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.
....
I'll see you all this coming fall
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
"Who knows?" "We'll see."

Firestarter I love that classic :-)

Teacher I need you
I was sitting in the classroom
trying to look intelligent
In case the teacher looked at me
She was long and she was lean
She's a middle aged dream
And that lady means the whole world to me

It's a natural achievement
Conquering my homework
With her image pounding in my brain
She's an inspiration
For my graduation
And she helps to keep the classroom sane

Oh teacher I need you
like a little child
You got something in you
To drive a schoolboy wild
You give me education
In the love sick blues
Help me get straight
Come out and say
Teacher I, Teacher I,Teacher I,
Teacher I need you

I have to write a letter
Tell about my feelings
Just to let her know the scene
Focus my attention
On some further education
In connection with the birdies
and the bees

So I'm sitting in the classroom

teacher I need you song
by Elton John

"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

Here's something familiar.... :-) :-)


Deja Vu - Dionne Warwick

This is insane
All you did was say hello
Speak my name
Feeling your love
Like a love I used to know
Long ago.

How can it be
You're a different space and time
Come to me.
Feel like I'm home
In a place I used to know
Long ago
Deja vu -
Could you be the dream that I once knew
Is it you
Deja vu -
Could you be the dream that might come true
Shining through

I keep remembering me
I keep remembering you
Deja vu
This is devine
I've been waiting all my life
Filling time
Looking for you
Nights were more than you could know
Long ago

Come to me now
We don't have to dream of love
We know how
Somewhere before
It's as if I've loved you so
So long ago
Deja vu -
Could you be the dream that I once knew
Is it you
Deja vu -
Could you be the dream that might come true?
Shining through
I keep remembering me
I keep remembering you
Deja vu}

Daniel Bedingfield - If You're Not The One

If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you're not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you're not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away
But I know that this much is true
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you're the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

'Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
'Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right
And though I can't be with you tonight
And know my heart is by your side

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
Guarantees? Never. Possibilities? Always.

Here you go Hale A Love Song about a Dog..
This song always made my Big Brother cry
when we were kids..so of course it's a
favorite of mine :-)

Old Shep

When I was a lad
And old Shep was a pup
Over hills and meadows wed stray
Just a boy and his dog
We both full of fun
We grew up together that way

I remember the time at the old swimming hole
When I would have drown beyond doubt
But old Shep was right there
To the rescue he came
He jumped in and then pulled me out

As the years fast did roll
Old Shep he grew old
His eyes were fast growing dim
And one day the doctor looked at me and said
I can do no more for him Jim

With hands that were trembling
I picked up my gun
And aimed it at Sheps faithful head
I just couldn't do it
I wanted to run
I wished they would shoot me instead

He came to my side
And looked up at me
And laid his old head on my knee
I had struck the best friend a man ever had
I cried so I scarcely could see

Old Shep he is gone
Where the good doggies go
And no more with Old Shep will I roam
But if dogs have a heaven
Theres one thing I know
Old Shep has a wonderful home...

words by Red Foley..sniff sniff :-(

Star, I always did like that song, and that remake was not one I had heard. Interesting, too, because I was out last night watching as the moon rose golden up through the forest canopy. Gold, full, heavy and.....supernatural. :-)

Buddie, what the....? You are a riot!

Second Wind

You're having a hard time and lately you don't feel so good
You're getting a bad reputation in your neighborhood
It's alright, it's alright, sometimes that's what it takes
You're only human, you're allowed to make your share of mistakes

You better believe there will be times in your life
When you'll be feeling like a stumbling fool
So take it from me, you'll learn more from your accidents
Than anything that you could ever learn at school

Don't forget your second wind
Sooner of later you'll get your second wind

It's not always easy to be living in this world of pain
You're gonna be crashing into stone walls again and again
It's alright, it's alright, though you feel your heart break
You're only human, you're gonna have to deal with heartache

Just like a boxer in a title fight
You got to walk in that ring all alone
You're not the only one who's made mistakes
But they're the only things that you can truly call your own

Don't forget your second wind
Wait in that corner until that breeze blows in

You've been keeping to yourself these days
Cause you're thinking everything's gone wrong
Sometimes you just want to lay down and die
That emotion can be so strong
But hold on 'till that old second wind comes along

You probably don't want to hear advice from someone else
But I wouldn't be telling you if I hadn't been there myself
It's alright, it's alright, sometimes that's all it takes
We're only human, we're supposed to make mistakes

But I survived all those long lonely days
When it seemed I did not have a friend
Cause all I needed was a little faith
So I could catch my breath and face the world again

Don't forget your second wind
Sooner or later you'll feel that momentum kick in
(One more time!)
Don't forget your second wind
Sooner or later you'll feel that momentum kick in

Don't forget your second wind
(You're only human, ooo-ooo)


by Billy Joel


Blessings,

Second Wind (formerly TLR)

Hale - thank you! I love that song. Now I get to learn the words. Buddie - I cant even read the Old Shep words or I will start blubbing! How soft am I? Can't even watch the Lassie films.
Second Wind - I have never heard that song but it rings true. Welcome back by the way. love Jan.

Second Wind video.


The video is SO 1980's, and kinda lame, but at least you can actually hear the song itself.

Mothership, thank you for the WB!

Oh, and Hale.....that song by Daniel Bedingfield......OH, it just gets to me SO MUCH. I had heard it several times on a local "info" channel that runs community info with popular music as background music. But, I never knew who sang it. Now, I plan to go and buy the CD!

Blessings!

"Wild Child" by Enya.
Lyrics by Roma Ryan


"Ever close your eyes?
Ever stop and listen?
Ever feel alive
and you've nothing missing?
You don't need a reason;
let the day go on and on...

Let the rain fall down
everywhere around you.
Give into it now;
let the day surround you.
You don't need a reason;
let the rain go on and on...

What a day
what a day to take to
what a way
what a way
to make it through
what a day
what a day to take to
a wild child

Only take the time
from the helter skelter.
Every day you find
everything's in kilter.
You don't need a reason;
let the day go on and on...

Every summer sun,
every winter evening,
every spring to come,
every autumn leaving.
You don't need a reason;
let it all go on and on..."


I can only speak for myself, SW, but if Whitley can forgive, so can I.

Welcome Home.
"And the lion roams..."

Thank you, Astro!

On the "Flip-Flop" thread, I have attempted amends for the unkind remarks I made right before I was banned.

I hope that I did not offend or hurt either one of your cheeks!

Blessings!

BURNING ROPE

(Tony Banks - Genesis)


The warming sun, the cooling rain, The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you
Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.
The words of love, the cries of hate,
And the man in the moon who seduced you
Then finally loosed you.

You climbed upon a burning rope to escape the mob below,
But you had put the flaming out so that others could now follow,
To be out of the bounds and the barks of those who do not wish you well.

You must blaze a trail of your own, unknown, alone,
But keep in mind
Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal.
The only survivors on this world of ours are

The warming sun, the cooling rain, The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you
Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.
The words of love, the cries of hate,
And the man in the moon who seduced you
Then finally loosed you.

You're old and disillusioned now as you realize at last,
That all all you have accomplished here will have soon all turned to dust.
You dream of a future after life, well that's as maybe, I don't know.
But you can't take what you left behind, you're all alone.
So keep in mind
Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal.
The only survivors on this world of ours are

The warming sun, the cooling rain, The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you
Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.
The words of love, the cries of hate,
And the man in the moon...
"In the end, only kindness matters."

Can't sleep, as usual.

But before I go lay myself down and try again, I have one more song.......need to get this "off my chest". It has been going through my mind all evening.....out of nowhere, because I haven't had any music or TV on today.

I "dedicate" this song to "certain people" from my childhood.


SUNNY CAME HOME


Sunny came home to her favorite room
Sunny sat down in the kitchen
She opened a book and a box of tools
Sunny came home with a mission

She says days go by I'm hypnotized
I'm walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Sunny came home with a list of names
She didn't believe in transcendence
It's time for a few small repairs she said
Sunny came home with a vengeance

She says days go by I don't know why
I'm walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Get the kids and bring a sweater
Dry is good and wind is better
Count the years, you always knew it
Strike a match, go on and do it

Days go by I'm hypnotized
I'm walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Light the sky and hold on tight
The world is burning down
She's out there on her own and she's alright
Sunny came home
Sunny came home...

Just one voice
A single note becomes a song
A single tree becomes a forest
A single voice thats clear and strong
Can turn into a worldwide chorus

Just one voice
One single voice
If you say you can
Then you can

A single moon turns the tide
A single seed becomes the harvest
A single sun within the sky
Keeps the whole world spinning for us

Just one voice
One single voice
If you say you can
Well then you can,you can

I can see a window opening
I hear a voice from deep inside me
It is the dawning of a daring sunrise
I feel the urge to step outside

And here within the radiant laughter
We'll make a dream and send it reeling
In the magic of the ever after
You and I are one and we are simply

Just one voice
One single voice
If you say you can
Well then you can, you can

to be comfortable but to grow"..

Feelings of Love

There are feelings that I know
Feelings down where they don't show
Hidden deep and dark,down low
Feelings of love

There are places where we go
Silent places where doors close
And we leave the world,you and I flow
Into the love..into the love

And it leads me on
To somewhere I've not known
To somewhere I've not known
These feelings of love
They come to take me home
They lead me on and on

In the hush of the warm glow
The distant song of the Oboe
Weeping softly as we moan
Feelings of love

In the silence where we meet
The only sound is a heartbeat
Rich and ancient and so sweet
Feelings of love..Feelings of Love

And it leads me on
To somewhere I've not known
To somewhere I've not known
These feelings of love
They come to take me home
They lead me on and on

These feelings of love
Are something I've not known
They never let me go
These feelings of love
They come to take me home
To know I'm not Alone
