Thanks, Starspirit, both for the WB, and the "new day" sentiments!

And buddie.....25 or 6 to 4 is a very meaningful song to me......VERY specific memory I have for that song. Interestingly, it ties in with one of the "people" that I dedicated "Sunny Comes Home" to!!!

Synchro.....is right!


OK.....here are my contributions to the "new day" train of thought.......



Morning has broken
like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken
like the first bird

Praise for the singing
praise for the morning
Praise for the springing
fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall
sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall
on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness
of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness
where His feet pass

Mine is the sunlight
mine is the morning
Born of the one light
Eden saw play
Praise with elation
praise every morning
God's recreation
of the new day


remembering Cat Stevens' version.....



And the following, just suddenly decided to come pouring out of me, inspired by the concept of spring, summer, and new beginnings.....

I know it's not "song lyrics", but it is, obviously, a song that came from my heart.



Whispers in the garden
speak to me of love
God speaks gently
in the sunlight from above

Whispers in the garden
speak of all things new
Sprouts come peeking out
to make their first debut

Whispers in the garden
talk to me of change
They tell me life, like flowers
is mine to arrange

Whispers in the garden
tell me life goes on
In the dark, when I feel broken
I'll just wait for dawn

Whispers in the garden
tell me to hang on
New life awakens
with the dew on the lawn

Whispers in the garden
speak to me of life
Caterpillar to butterfly
is the reason for the strife

Whispers in the garden
speak to me of death
and tell me to keep digging
until my dying breath


Happy spring!
"In the end, only kindness matters."

Awesome stuff star..
I awoke to this one playing :-)


Magic Man

Cold late night so long ago
When I was not so strong you know
A pretty man came to me
I never seen eyes so blue
You know I could not run away it seemed
We's seen each other in a dream
Seemed like he knew me
He looked right through me ... Yeah

Come on home girl he said with a smile
You don't have to love me yet
Lets get high awhile
But try to understand..try to understand
Try Try Try to understand..I'm a magic man

Winter nights we sang in tune
Played inside the months of moon
Never think of never..let this spell
last forever ....

Well summer lover passed to Fall
tried to realize it all
Mama said she's worried growing up in
a hurry...

Come on home girl he said with a smile
I cast mt spell of love on you
a woman from a child
But try to understand Try to understand
Oh..oh.. try try try to understand
He's a magic man.. Oh .. he's got magic hands

OooooOoooo's over the top

Come on home girl he said with a smile
You don't have to love me yet
Lets get high awhile
But try to understand try to understand
Try Try Try to understand
He's a magic man Ooooo he's got magic hands

Heart from Dreamboat Annie
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

The Righteous Brothers
When Sam comes to Molly...

Oh my love,my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long , lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love,I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea
to the sea
To the open arms of the sea,yeah
Lonely rivers sigh wait for me
wait for me
I'll be coming home,wait for me
from the movie Ghost

Rainbow Magic lyrics
There's a light in the sky that hangs on the edge of illusion
something very fine but it's something you know is there
mystery of time hidden by a man of confusion
but the hand is quicker than the eye
only the stranger knows why
'cos it's magic
you know it's magic that you'll find
you see it's magic
I know who you are and there's magic in you
keep your eye on the man
and don't look away for a moment
how is it done how does he make me see
something up his sleeve when speaks you want to believe him
but the hand is quicker than the eye
only the stranger knows why
'cos it's magic
can' you see it's magic that you'll find
you know it's magic
I know who you are and there's magic in you
driven by a force
moving in another dimension
here for today, gone for eternity
seeking for truth hidden by the word of his wisdom
but the hand is quicker than the eye
only the stranger knows why
can't you feel it's magic
you know it's magic that you'll find
I said it's magic
I know who you are and there's magic in you
"Who knows?" "We'll see."

:-) yes they are

Are we in trouble now

Wasen't just the music
Wasen't just the wine
Some other kind of magic
Sending shivers up my spine
And I was falling and I fell for you
and how...

Darl'en are we in trouble now

Well they say we're grown up
We've been searching all this time
And I wouldn't own up
Never would admit to flying blind
But in the darkness found each other
anyhow...

Darl'en are we in trouble now

When we talk it over
Our love was crying from a distant
shore
Then we found each other
And all we've been searching for...

Ooohh
Darl'en are we in trouble now..
Ooohh
Darl'en are we in trouble now..

Can I even post this one?......

INXS - Deliver Me


The take down
Is a mystery
All I want to know is why
Your eyes
Taking over
The apple in my eye
Im in
A crowded room
Cant hear a single word they say
Theyre just talking faces
I dont believe I know your name

I smell you
On my finger tips
I hear you
Whispering
I feel you
All over me
Im never gonna be the same

Whatcha
Trying to do to me
Please tell me the rules of the game
You see me
Shaking right through
No surprise
Im looking this way

Deliver me
From your spell
Gimme gimme more of the same
Deliver me
From your spell
Gimme more gimme more
Gimme more of the same

Deliver me

Whatcha
Trying to do to me
Please tell me the rules of the game
cause Im just
Out of my skin
But the thoughts and the questions remain

Gimme more gimme more
Gimme more of the same

Gimme

More of the same
Guarantees? Never. Possibilities? Always.

If you're driving into town
With a dark cloud above you
Dial in the number
Who's bound to love you

Oh honey you turn me on
I'm a radio
I'm a country station
I'm a little bit corny
I'm a wildwood flower
Waving for you
Broadcasting tower
Waving for you

And I'm sending you out
This signal here
I hope you can pick it up
Loud and clear

I know you don't like weak women You get bored so quick
And you don't like strong women
'Cause they're hip to your tricks
It's been dirty for dirty
Down the line
But you know
I come when you whistle
When you're loving and kind

But if you've got too many doubts
If there's no good reception for me
Then tune me out,
'cause honey, who needs the static
It hurts the head
And you wind up cracking
And the day goes dismal
From "Breakfast Barney"
To the sign-off prayer
What a sorry face you get to wear
I'm going to tell you again now
If you're still listening there

If you're driving into town
With a dark cloud above you
Dial in the number
Who's bound to love you

If you're lying on the beach
With the transistor going
Kick off the sandflies honey
The love's still flowing

If your head says forget it
But your heart's still smoking
Call me at the station
The lines are open


(Joni Mitchell)

Magdalene

His soldier heart is like a memory
Now he walks her street
A lonely sentry
Time goes by to a beating drum
No,you can't go back
To where your coming from

When darkness shrouds the streets
Sometimes their eyes will meet
And then he turns away
Theres nothing they need to say

She's seen it all before
Some sad unsettled score
A love as old as men
She takes the war from them

Somehow their sorrow makes her braver
Now she forgives
As he forgave her
Time goes by to a beating drum
No,you can't go back
To where your coming from

She takes her place beside the window
But he won't look back
Though he knows her eyes still follow
Time goes by to a beating drum
No you can't go back
Once you have gone
You can't go back
It's gone
No you can't go back
To where your coming from

Let Your Love Flow
Bellamy Brothers

There's a reason
for the sunshine day,
There's a reason
why I'm feelin' so high.
Must be the season
When that love light shines all around us.
So let that feeling
grad you deep inside
and send you reeling
where your love can't hide
and then go stealing
through the summer nights
with your lover.
Just let your love flow
like a mountain stream
and let your love grow
with the smallest of dreams
and let your love show
And you'll know what I mean
it's the season.
Let your love fly
like a bird on the wing
And let your love bind you
to all living things,
and let your love shine
and you'll know what I mean,
that's the reason.
There's a reason
for the warm sweet nights
There's a reason
for the candle lights.
Must be the season
when those love rites shine all around us.
So let the wonder
take you into space
and lay you under
its loving embrace
feel the thunder
as it warms your face
you can't hold back.
just let your love flow
like a mountain stream
and let your love grow
with the smallest of dreams
and let your love show
And you'll know what I mean
it's the season.
Let your love fly
like a bird on the wing
And let your love bind you
to all living things,
and let your love shine
and you'll know what I mean,
that's the reason.

I just love (usually) the way songs bring specific memories back! "Let Your Love Flow" does that for me; reminds me of a summer in my early 20's, when I was managing a sandwich shop, and had seen my UFO as an "adult".



Ok, I had this idea to share some songs, to illustrate "A Love Affair, Beginning to End".

I have these 3 homemade tapes that I made with that theme. The first tape I called "Love Songs"; the second one, "Love On The Rocks"; the third, "Love Gone Bad".

Here are three songs each, from each of my tapes.

ACT ONE:

Dream Lover

I need a lover to give me
The kind of love
That will last always
I need somebody uplifting
To take me away

I want a lover who knows me
Who understands how I feel inside
Someone to comfort and hold me Through the long lonely nights
Till the dawn
Why you don't take me away

Dream lover come rescue me
Take me up, take me down
Take me anywhere you want to baby now
I need you so desperately
Won't you please come around
'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

Don't want another pretender
To disillusion me one more time
Whispering words of forever
Playing with my mind

I need someone to hold on to
The kind of love that won't fly away
Just want someone to belong to
Everyday of my life
Always
So come and take me away

Dream lover come rescue me
Take me up take me down
Take me anywhere you want to baby now
I need you so desperately
Won't you please come around
'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

(Mariah Carey)




Lucky Girl

Im a lucky girl
I found my friend
I've been all around the world
Mission impossible
Chasing the rainbow's end
Wise guys
Shy guys
And sly lover boys
With big bad bedroom eyes...
I never loved a man I trusted
As far as I could pitch my shoe
'til I loved you

You're my lucky star
You're my magician
You make the night prowling disappear
Vanished from the star-war-bars
Empty repetition
I get my heart full here
Playboys
Stray boys
And say, "hey, hey" boys'll treat you like a toy
I never loved a man I trusted
As far as I could pitch my shoe
til I loved you

Cheaters
Woman beaters
And huck finn shucksters hopping parking meters
I never loved a man
I trusted
As far as I could pitch my shoe
til I loved you

Im a lucky girl
I found my friend
I been all around the world
Mission impossible
Chasing the rainbows end
Wise guys
Booby-prize guys
And sly lover boys
With big bad bedroom eyes ...
I never loved a man I trusted
As far as I could throw my shoe
til I loved you

(Joni Mitchell)




Everywhere I Go

I hear your heart beating everywhere
When were apart I can hear you there
I hear your heart beating everywhere
Everywhere I go

People say that I must be in love
The way I forget what were speaking of
The way I stand there smiling straight ahead
And walk away without hearing a word they said

I hear your heart beating everywhere
When were apart, I can close my eyes and hear you there
I hear your heart beating everywhere
Everywhere I go

In the middle of the football game
At the beach, in the pouring rain
Standing on a hillside, staring at the sun
People hurry by the unfortunate one
With the faraway eyes and the mystery smile
Moving my body in a ragamuffin style
I can't sit down when I hear it start
I hear you heart beating everywhere,
everywhere I go

People say that I must be a fool
Cause when I'm near you, I cannot be cool
I don't quite make sense when I talk to you
And when you smile, I forget everything I knew

I hear your heart beating everywhere
When were apart, I can close my eyes and hear you there
I hear your heart beating everywhere
Everywhere I go

Standing in the market where I buy my bread
With a hunger in my belly and a rhythm in my head
Looking all around for something good to eat
Between the butter and the beans and the mops and the meat
Coffee from the mountain, honey from the bee
Nothing tastes as good as you taste to me
Rocking in the aisle to my inside song
People staring at me think I got a walkman on

I hear your heart beating everywhere
I hear your heart
I hear your heart beating everywhere
I hear you heart
Beating everywhere I go

(Jackson Browne)



ACT TWO:

Make Love Stay

Now that we love
Now that the lonely nights are over
How do we make love stay?
Now that we know
The fire can burn bright, or merely smolder
How do we keep it from dying away?

Elusive as dreams
Barely remembered in the morning
Love, like a phantom, flies
But held in the heart
It pales like the empty smile adorning
A statue with sightless eyes

Moments fleet, taste sweet within the rapture
When precious flesh is greedily consumed
But mystery's a thing not easily captured
And once deceased, not easily exhumed

Now that we love
Now that the lonely nights are over
How do we make love stay?

Now that we've loved
Look at the moonless night and tell me
How do we make love stay?

(Dan Fogelberg)



Off-night Back Street

Maybe I'm just kidding myself when I say I love you
I don't know
Loving without trusting
You get frostbite and sunstroke
I wish I felt nothing
You pimp - laughing and strutting her to my chartered seat
Your old off-night back street

It's been stinger to stinger, darling It's been heart to heart
You still keep me from finishing any new love I start
Now she's moved in with you
She's keeping your house neat
And your sheets sweet
And I'm your off night back street

I can feel your fingers
feeling my face
There are some lines you put there
and some you erase
Maybe I'm just dramatizing
I don't care
It's home, it can be heaven
When we play fair
But these sentimental journeys...
Late at night, high in some back room,
you're calling me
to be your off night back street

You give me such pleasure
You bring me such pain
Who left her long black hair
In our bathtub drain?

(Joni Mitchell)



Minute By Minute

Hey, don't worry,
I've been lied to
I've been here
many times before

Don't you worry,
I know where I stand
I don't need this love
I don't need your hand

I know I could turn,
blink, and you'd be gone
So I must be prepared,
any time, to carry on

But minute by minute by minute by minute
I keep holding on
Oh, minute by minute by minute by minute
I keep holding on

You will stay
just to watch me, darlin',
Wilt away
on lies from you

Can't stop the habit
of livin' on the run
I take it all for granted
like you're the only one

Livin' on my own
Somehow, that sounds nice
You think I'm your fool
Well, you may just be right

'cause minute by minute by minute by minute
I keep holding on
Oh, minute by minute by minute by minute
I keep holding on

Call my name and I'll be gone
You'll reach out and I won't be there
Just my luck you'll realize
You should spend your life with someone
You could spend your life with someone

Minute by minute by minute by minute
I'll be holding on
Oh, minute by minute by minute by minute
I'll be holding on...

(Doobie Brothers)



ACT THREE:

You Ain't So Tough

What in the world did I do
to deserve you
I don't understand why you
treat me that way
You knew you were everything
I ever wanted
You had your own ways of making me pay

Then you took it just a little too far
Now I see you for what you are
I don't need the heartache anymore

Loving you was an endless fight
I was wrong and you were always right
But look what happened when I called your bluff
When the truth comes out
you ain't so tough

You turned me into an emotional prisoner
You hit me with words that cut to the bone
Then you kissed me, and made me believe that I needed you,
And think I could never survive on my own

Never thought that I would break away
Now I see right through your power play
And I don't feel so helpless after all

Loving you was an endless fight
I was wrong and you were always right
But look what happened when I called your bluff
When the truth comes out
you ain't so tough

You took me too far to forgive it
That was your last mistake
That was your last mistake

Loving you was an endless fight
I was wrong and you were always right
But look what happened when I called your bluff
When the truth comes out
you ain't so tough

You take it all but you don't give back
You feel strong when the odds are stacked
But there comes a time when enough's enough
When the truth comes out you ain't so tough

(Heart)




Nothin' Like A Hundred Miles

I have tried to forget about you
And all the plans that we had planned
Yes, and I'm bound to leave this town
I don't care where I may land

If what they're telling me is true,
And you have found somebody new to love you,
There ain't but one thing I can do, baby
To save my heart from being broken in two by you
Baby, Im moving through

There's nothin' like a hundred miles
Between me and trouble in my mind
There's nothin' like a hundred miles
Show me the yellow line
There's nothin' like a hundred miles
When I'm only passing through
There's nothin' like a hundred miles
To make me forget about you
Forget about you, baby

Don't we like our fond farewells?
And don't we like to keep our good-byes nice and clean?
You may wish I'd go to hell
While you tell me what a pleasure it's been
So long! Baby, Im moving on

There's nothin' like a hundred miles
Between me and trouble in mind
There's nothin' like a hundred miles
Somebody show me the yellow line
There's nothin' like a hundred miles
When I'm only passing through
There's nothin' like a hundred miles
To make me forget about you
Forget about you

I have tried to forget about you
Baby, I have failed
Just as long as I stay in Houston,
I will

(James Taylor)




Misled

I thought I knew you, Boy
Thought that I knew you well
We had a rhythm
But I guess you never can tell

Oh I learned early
Never to ignore the signs
You'll be forgiven
It ain't worth that much to my mind

Lovin' you was so easy
It's hard to say goodbye
But if that's the way it goes....

You're just a page in my history
Just another one of those mysteries
One more lover that used to be
If you think you're in my head
You been seriously misled

Loving somebody
ain't your average 9-to-5
It takes conviction,
it takes a will to survive

I'm not somebody
who commits the crime
and leaves the scene
But when I've been dissed
I don't spend much time
on what might've been

I'm not about self-pity
Your love did me wrong
So I'm movin', movin' on

Just a page in my history
Just another one of those mysteries
One more lover that used to be
If you think you're in my head
You been seriously misled!

(Celine Dion)

Yeah, stronger and wiser....and, at least, for me, much more reticent about any new relationships!

At this point in my life, I figure if God wants me to have a partner, he will have to send him to my door!

1982 Randy Travis

Operator please connect me to 1982
I need to make apologies for what
I didn't do
I sure do need to tell her
I've thought the whole thing through
And now it's clear that she is what
I should have held onto

They say hindsights twenty-twenty
But I'm nearly going blind
From starin at her photograph
And wishing she were mine
It's that same ole lost love story
It's sad but it's true
There was a time when she was mine in 1982

Postman can you sell me a special
kind of stamp
One to send a letter from this
crazy lonely man
Back into the wasted years of my
living past
I need to tell her now I know
how long my love will last

They say hindsights twenty-twenty
But I'm nearly going blind
From starin at her photograph
and wishing she were mine
It's that same ole lost love story
It's sad but it's true
There was a time when she was mine in 1982


Losen my mind,goin back in time to 1982

To all the ladies who got away
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

When you look over your shoulder
And you see the life that you've left behind
When you think it over do you ever wonder?
What it is that holds your life so close to mine
You love the thunder and you love the rain
What you see revealed within the anger is worth the pain
And before the lightning fades and you surrender
You've got a second to look at the dark side of the man
You love the thunder and you love the rain
You know your hunger like you know your name
And I know you wonder how you ever came
To be a woman in love with a man in search of the flame
Draw the shade and light the fire
For the night that holds you and calls your name
And just like your lover, knows your desire
And the crazy longing that time will never tame
You love the thunder and you love the rain
You know your hunger like you know your name
I got your number if it's still the same
You can dream
But you can never go back the way you came


Jackson Browne YOU LOVE THE THUNDER lyrics
"Who knows?" "We'll see."

There is so much magic in first love.
1982....I was 19 yrs old.
I've been traveling through old memories too....
Some very Sweet.
The love of our youth, sweet youth, so worth visiting.

Thanks for the memories Buddie!

Yes, Buddie and Firestarter, Jackson Browne is one of my top-10 faves.

And Buddie, the album you are talking about (which I took songs from above), which is the "I'm Alive" album, is also my favorite Jackson Browne album. Every single song is killer!

Second to that, would have to be the "Lawyers In Love" album. It is not "technically" one of his best albums, but it has such a specific set of memories for me, that it still hits me where I live.

From it:

Tender Is The Night

Between the darkness on the street
And the houses filling up with light Between the stillness in my heart
And the roar of the approaching night
Somebody's calling after somebody
Somebody turns the corner out of sight
Looking for somebody
Somewhere in the night

Tender is the night
When you hold your baby tight
Tender are the motions
Tender is the night

Between the life that we expected
And the way it's always been
I can't walk back in again
After the way we fight

Just outside there are people laughing
Living lives we used to lead
Chasing down the love they need
Somewhere in the night

Tender is the night
And the benediction of the neon light
Tender are the hunters
Tender is the night

You're gonna want me tonight
When you're ready to surrender
Forget about who's right
When you're ready to remember
It's another world at night
When you're ready to be tender

Tender, tender tender...

And in the hard light of an angry sun
No one remembers what was said or done
Tender are the words they choose You win! I win! We lose.

Tender
Tender is the night
Tender
The benediction of the neon light
Tender
Tender are the hunters
Tender is the night
When they hold each other tight
Tender
Tender are the undercover
Tender
The stranger and the secret lover
Tender
Tender are the motions
Tender is the night
When you hold your baby tight

Tender, tender, tender...
"In the end, only kindness matters."

........and how I'm feelin' tonight:

Talk To Me

There was a moon and a street lamp
I didn't know I drank such a lot,
till I pissed a tequila-anaconda
the full length of the parking lot!

Oh, I talk too loose
Again, I talk too open and free
I pay a high price for my open talking,
like you do for your silent mystery

Come and talk to me
Please talk to me
Talk to me, talk to me
Mr. mystery

We could talk about Martha
We could talk about landscapes
I'm not above gossip,
But I'll sit on a secret
where honor is at stake!

Or we could talk about power
About Jesus and Hitler and Howard Hughes,
Or Charlie Chaplin's movies,
Or Bergman's nordic blues.

Please just talk to me
Any old theme you choose
Just come and talk to me
Mr. mystery, talk to me

You could talk like a fool-I'd listen! You could talk like a sage
Anyway, the best of my mind
all goes down on the strings and the page

That mind picks up all these pictures,
it still gets my feet up to dance
Even though it's covered with keloids
from the slings and arrows of outrageous romance

I stole that from Willy the Shake!
You know--"neither a borrower nor a lender be"
Romeo, Romeo talk to me!

Is your silence that golden?
Are you comfortable in it?
Is it the key to your freedom?
or is it the bars on your prison?

Are you gagged by your ribbons?
Are you really exclusive or just miserly?
You spend every sentence as if it was marked currency!
Come and spend some on me--
Shut me up and talk to me!
Im always talking!
Chicken squawking!
Please talk to me
"In the end, only kindness matters."

My turntable finally bit the dust a couple of months ago. Gotta get me another one. It would sure be cheaper to replace it, than to try to replace my LP collection with CDs!

I see them gathered, see them on the shore
I turned to look once more
And he who knows me not
Takes me to the belly of darkness
The tears run swift and hard
And when they fall
Even, even the comfort of a stone
Would be a gain
There was a time when I thought
I would have to give up
But I'm thankful that I'm
Strong as I am and I'll
Try to do the best I can
1 - Tears will run swift
And tears will come that fall like rain
I pray that it's swift though
Tears will fall as cold as pain
I pray to the almighty
Let me not to him do
As he has unto me
Teach my beloved children
Who have been enslaved
To reach for the light continually
So many times I prayed
So many times I've prayed for you
Prayed for you
The tears run swift and hard and cold as pain
Even, even the comfort of a stone would be a gain
Had I not had the strength and wisdom of a warrior
I would have to give up
But I'm thankful that I'm
Strong as I am and I'll
Try to do the best I can
Repeat 1
I pray to the almighty
Let us not do as he has unto us
Teach my beloved children I've been a slave
But reach for the light continually
Wisdom is the flame
Wisdom is the brave warrior
Who will carry us into the sun
I pray that it's swift though
Tears will come that fall like rain
So many times, so many times


Sade Slave Song lyrics

Enigma Return To Innocence lyrics
(Curly M.C.)
.
Ami Chant
That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion
.
Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion
.
Don't be afraid to be weak
Don't be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence
.
If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny
.
Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
.
That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence
.
Don't care what people say
Follow just your own way
Follow just your own way
Don't give up, don't give up
To return, to return to innocence.
If you want then laugh
If you must then cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny.




For me, the chant is the best part of this song.
"Who knows?" "We'll see."

Golden Heart

Darlin pretty
it's time to come away
my darlin pretty
it's time to come away
on the changing tide
time to come away
darlin pretty
and I need you darlin by my side

Heal me with a smile
darlin pretty
heal me with a smile
and a heart of gold
carry me awhile
my darlin pretty
heal my aching heart and soul

Just like a castaway
lost upon an endless sea
I saw you far away
come to rescue me

Cast away the chains
darlin pretty
cast away the chains
away behind
take away my pain
darlin pretty
and the chains that
once were yours and mine

There will come a day
darlin pretty
there will come a day
when hearts can fly
love will find away
my darlin pretty
find a heaven for you and I

You've Got A Friend
james taylor

When your down and troubled
and you need a helping hand
and nothing,whoa,nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights

You just call out my name
and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter,Spring,Summer or Fall
all you have to do is call
And I'll be there yeah,yeah
You've got a friend

If the sky above you turns
dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow
keep your head together and call
my name out loud
soon I'll be knocking upon your door

You just call out my name
and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter,Spring,Summer or Fall
all you have to do is call
and I'll be there yeah,yeah
you've got a friend

Ain't it good to know
you've got a friend
Ain't it good to know
you've got a friend
People can be so cold
they'll hurt you and desert you
they'll take your soul if you let them
Oh yeah,but don't you let them

Oh yeah,yeah,you've got a friend...

I just want to stop and thank you baby,yes I do
To MY best friend :-)

Live - Pain Lies On The Riverside


I have never taken Life
Yet I have often paid the price
And you, you are a victim of this age
And the guilt that hangs around your neck
Has got me locked up in a cage

You've got to learn to live until no end
But first you must learn to swim
All over again
Because...

Pain lies on the riverside
And Pain will never say goodbye
Pain Lies on the Riverside
So put you feet in the water
Put your head in the water
Put your soul in the water
And join me for a swim tonight

I have forever, always tried
To stay clean and constantly baptized
I am aware that the river's banks are dry
And to wait for a flood
Is to wait for life

I've got to learn to live until no end
But first I must learn to swim all
Over again,
Because...

Pain lies on the Riverside.

No 9 Dream

So long ago.
Was it in a dream?
Was it just a dream?
I know, yes I know.
It seemed so very real,
seemed so real to me.
Took a walk down the street.
Through the heat whispered trees.
I thought I could hear.
Hear.
Hear.
Hear.
Somebody call out my name (John)
as it started to rain.
Two spirits dancing so strange...
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Dream, dream away.
Magic in the air.
Was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe.
More I cannot say.
What more can I say?
On a river of sound.
Through the mirror go round, round.
I thought I could feel.
Feel.
Feel.
Feel.
Music touching my soul.
Something warm, sudden cold.
The spirit dance was unfolding...
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse
Ah! Bowakawa, pousse pousse

My enemy said to me, "Love your enemy." And I obeyed him and loved myself.

"The Beauty Of Gray"
By Live

If I told you he was your brother
We could reminisce
Then you would go about your day
If I said you ought to give him some of your water
You'd shake your canteen and walk away

The perception that divides you from him
Is a lie
For some reason you never asked why
This is not a black and white world
You can't afford to believe in your side

This is not a black and white world
To be alive
I say that the colours must swirl
And I believe
That maybe today
We will all get to appreciate

The Beauty of Grey

If I told you she was your mother
We could analyze the situation and be gone
If I said you ought to give her
Some of your water
Your eyes would light up like the dawn
The perception that divides you from her
Is a lie
For some reason we never asked why
This is not a black and white world
You can't afford to believe in your side

This is not a black and white world
To be alive
I say the colors must swirl
And I believe
That maybe today
We will all get to appreciate

The beauty of gray

Look into your eyes
No daylight
New day now

10,000 Years (Peace Is Now)
By Live

The world is burning down
Can't you smell the smoke in the air?
War, disease, and famine
This demon, she is everywhere

Poets and preachers and politicians
They've all had their say
And we got 10,000 years
Devoted to nothing
But tomorrow and yesterday

If all of the ignorance in the world
Passes a second ago
What would you say?
Who would you obey?
I am here to say that

Peace is now

Mr. President
I hereby pardon you of all your crimes
For they are just as much mine

Selfishness and separation have led me
To believe that the world is not my problem
The world is not my problem
I am the world
And you are the world

If all of the ignorance in the world
Passes a second ago
What would you say?
Who would you obey?
I am here to say that

Peace is now

Okay, one more Live song and I am outta here.....

Operation Spirit (The Tyranny Of Tradition)
Live

Heard a lot of talk about the ocean
Heard a lot of talk about the sea
Heard a lot of talk about a lot of things
Never meant that much to me

Heard a lot of talk about my spirit
Heard a lot of talk about my soul
But I decided that anxiety and pain
Were better friends
So I let it go

Did you let it go?
Let's get it back
Let's get it back together

Heard a lot of talk about this Jesus
A man of love, and a man of strength
But what a man was two thousand years ago
means nothing at all to me today

He could have been telling me about my
higher self
But he only lives inside my prayer
So what he was may have been beautiful
But the pain is right now
And right here

Let it go!
Let it go!
Let it go, my friend
And let's get it back
Let's get it back together

Flirting with Time

A coyote ran across the road
on the move without a home ...
A Flash of light reminded me of you

This could well be your last stand
Hold the sunlight in your hand
Spread your fingers feel the Sand
fall through...

We're flirting with time baby
Flirting with time maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you

Should be more to learn from this
Can't say we know what it is ..
No difference tween a hit and a miss
It's true ...

I've done all I can do.
Now it's all up to you.
Your flirting with time, but maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you

Flirting with time but maybe
Flirting with time but baby
Flirting with time..
I've done all I can do..
Now it's up to you..

Flirting with.......

Harry got up
Dressed all in black
Went down to the station
And he never came back
They found his clothing
Scattered somewhere down the track
And he won't be down on Wall Street
in the morning
He had a home
The love of a girl
But men get lost sometimes
As years unfold
One day he crossed some line
And he was too much in this world
But I guess it doesn't matter anymore
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
Things can get pretty strange
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
Lying here in the darkness
I hear the sirens wail
Somebody going to emergency
Somebody's going to jail
If you find somebody to love in this world
You better hand on tooth and nail
The wolf is always at the door
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
Things can get a little strange
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
And in these days
When darkness falls early
And people rush home
To the ones they love
You better take a fool's advice
And tak care of your own
One day they're here;
Next day they're gone
I pulled my coat around my shoulders
And took a walk down through the park
The leaves were falling around me
The groaning city in the gathering dark
On some solitary rock
A desperate lover left his mark,
Baby, I've changed. Please come back.
What the head makes cloudy
The heart makes very clear
The days were so much brighter
In the time when she was here
But I know there's somebody somewhere
Make these dark clouds disappear
Until that day, I have to believe
I believe, I believe
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
You can get out of the rain
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute

"After The Goldrush"

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming,
saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and drummers drumming,
and the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing to the sun that was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run in the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run in the nineteen seventies.

I was lying in a burned out basement with the full moon in my eyes.
I was hoping for replacement, when the sun burst thru the sky.
There was a band playing in my head, and I felt like getting high.
I was thinking about what a friend had said.
I was hoping it was a lie.
Thinking about what a friend had said.
I was hoping it was a lie.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver space ships flying in the yellow haze of the sun.
There were children crying, and colors flying all around the chosen ones.
All in a dream, all in a dream, the loading had begun.
They were flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home in the sun.
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home.

(Neil Young)

This is quite possibly one of the most relevant songs I can think of to describe the condition of the human race right now:


Under Pressure

[Originally by David Bowie/Queen]

Pressure!

Pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Bah bah dah bah bah dah
(Yeah) (Yeah)

That's okay!
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Scream "Let me out!"
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people
People on streets

Bah bah dah bah bah dah
Okay!

Chippin' around
Kick my brains round the floor
These are the days
It never rains but it pours
Bah bah dah bah bah dah

People on streets
bah dah dee da day
People on streets
bah dah dee dah dee dah dee dah dee dah

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Scream "Let me out!"
Pray tomorrow takes me higher (higher)

Yeah!

Turned away from it all
Like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn

Why? Why? Why?
Love(love)! Love(love)! Love(love)!

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love give love give love?
Give love give love give love give love give love?

Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For the people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our ways
Of caring about ourselves

This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure

Under pressure
Under pressure

And here is a live version of the song by The Used and My Chemical Romance.

Miaree, that song (by Queen and Bowie) makes me cry EVERY time.

I enjoyed the version by The Used/MCR; I had not seen it before.

You inspired me.....

and I found THIS video, to the original version. Some VERY compelling and appropriate images.

I dedicate this song to someone very special,
I dedicate this to someone very dear,
I just have to say without delay,
this song is too Starspirit:
youtube nearly unplugged -lol

website and yes finally...and shhh

You are so beautiful
To me
You are so beautiful
To me
Can't you see
You're everything I hoped for
You're everything I need
You are so beautiful
To me

You are so wonderful
To me
You are so wonderful
To me
Can't you see
You're everything I hoped for
You're everything I need
You are so wonderful
To me

You are so beautiful
To me
You are so beautiful
To me
Can't you see
You're everything I hoped for
You're everything I need
You are so beautiful
To me

Of couse it could use a bit more adverbs and extensive wording, but in its most basic form lies the vibration. Feel me. (by popular demand.-LOL)

and another thing, while I'm at it, now listen good, cause I am saying here and now.

site: just perfect and fits so fine.

You Are Woman
Words and Music 1991

You know it was so long that I was lonely,
Wondering if I'd ever find
A love that could match my passion inside
But that all seems so far away now,
Now that I've seen deep in your eyes
A spirit with life to match mine

I've finally found the woman I needed all along
All along the long, lonely years
I look out and see that all I believe is fully real
Because to me, you are woman

You know it feels so right that I should trust you
With all of my mind and all of my soul
And all of this passion for life that you know
Can it be somehow I've known you forever?
Two of a kind one soul and mind
I know you're my kindred spirit

There's the love that you show when you give your heart away
And then there's the love that you cherish inside
But I never felt that outside and in my love was one
Until I found you, my woman

You awaken all that lies within me
All I can do, all that I see,
All that I am and know I can be
I've never felt this kind of inspiration
Filling me up giving me life
Feeding the fire within my soul

Was longing to find a woman in kind but not the same
A soul to complete me in every way
To make my life whole there's only one thing that's left to do
And that's to make you my woman

Words and music written in 1991 by Peter Saint-Andre.

No I am not shy, no I am not timid, no your not too much... it just is now.

All these clues, and my faith the only thing.

So long, has been this time.

And you leaving a huge pathway of clues, and me, only my faith.

So long, it has been, I miss you.

No longer is this invisibilty, like a moth to a flame.

So much integrity, so much power, in this hour.

This is my song, I write, at this site.

I am at will, and in your eyes, strong ties, unbound.

The music of my soul, crying, waiting.

Thanks for waiting in spirit in soul.

I am moved, I am moved...

Love

I just love this old Joe Walsh song about the process of writing music.

Joe Walsh lyrics The Radio Song

I like to listen to music
I like the way that it sounds
On the radio
I like to sit in a silent place
When no one's around
And listen inside it
Inside the silence is a melody
Voices singing harmony
I close my eyes and listen carefully
The silence starts to get loud
It's like your favorite station
Playing your favorite song
Just like they do on the radio
Like they do on the radio
Inside the silence is a symphony
Every note there is in every key
The music tells me how it wants to be
I help it write itself down
I hear the way that would sound
It's like your favorite station
Playing your favorite song
Just like they do on the radio
Like they do on the radio
But the radio isn't on --
On the radio

And here it is on YouTube featuring Joe and the late Wolfman Jack. Listen.

People Have the Power

By Patti Smith

I was dreaming in my dreaming
of an aspect bright and fair
and my sleeping it was broken
but my dream it lingered near
in the form of shining valleys
where the pure air recognized
and my senses newly opened
I awakened to the cry
that the people / have the power
to redeem / the work of fools
upon the meek / the graces shower
it's decreed / the people rule

The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power

Vengeful aspects became suspect
and bending low as if to hear
and the armies ceased advancing
because the people had their ear
and the shepherds and the soldiers
lay beneath the stars
exchanging visions
and laying arms
to waste / in the dust
in the form of / shining valleys
where the pure air / recognized
and my senses / newly opened
I awakened / to the cry

Refrain

Where there were deserts
I saw fountains
like cream the waters rise
and we strolled there together
with none to laugh or criticize
and the leopard
and the lamb
lay together truly bound
I was hoping in my hoping
to recall what I had found
I was dreaming in my dreaming
god knows / a purer view
as I surrender to my sleeping
I commit my dream to you

Refrain

The power to dream / to rule
to wrestle the world from fools
it's decreed the people rule
it's decreed the people rule
LISTEN
I believe everything we dream
can come to pass through our union
we can turn the world around
we can turn the earth's revolution
we have the power
People have the power ...

Second-
Did you write the lyrics to "Talk to Me? I'm impressed no matter who wrote them, and extremely impressed if it was you.

I also love Whispers. Could it be that you are talented?? (don't be modest)

Gosh, Buckeye, thanks for the compliment about "Whispers In The Garden".

But "Talk To Me" is by Joni Mitchell, my absolute favorite female artist. She is an incomparable singer and poet!

(I RARELY forget to credit the lyrics I post....in fact, I doubt that I have ever forgotten except on the most recent posting of "Talk To Me"!!)

Glad you enjoyed them (both)!

Joni Mitchell, I should'a known. What goes on in her mind that she can write such clever lyrics, far and above most other writers, and in song after song after song?

What a gift she has been to the folk music, singer/songwriter scene.

Please keep posting her songs. Have you done "Case of You" yet?

Take care!

I would almost bet money, even without doing a search here, that I have. I have posted her lyrics so much that I have been afraid that others were getting tired of it!!

OKIE DOKIE.....even though I have posted them before.......here is one of my FAVORITES by Joni.

It's one of here LONGEST songs, and most obscure, as well. It has VERY specific meanings, and memories, for me.


I'm Don Juan's reckless daughter
I came out two days on your tail
Those two bald-headed days in November Before the first snowflakes sail
Out on the vast and subtle plains of mystery
A split tongue spirit talks
Noble as a nickel chief
Striking up an old juke box

And he says:
"Snakes along the railroad tracks"
He says, "Eagles in jet trails"
He says, "Coils around feathers and talons on scales"
"Gravel under the belly plates"
He says, "Wind in the Wings"
He says, "Big bird dragging its tail in the dust
Snake kite flying on a string"

I come from open prairie
Given some wisdom and a lot of jive
Last night the ghosts of my old ideals
Reran on channel five
And it howled so spooky for its eagle soul I nearly broke down and cried
But the split tongue spirit laughed at me
He says, "Your serpent cannot be denied"
Our serpents love the whisky bars
They love the romance of the crime
But didn't I see a neon sign
Fester on your hotel blind?
And a country road come off the wall
And swoop down at the crowd at the bar And put me at the top of your danger list Just for being so much like you are

You're a coward against the altitude
You're a coward against the flesh
Coward, caught between yes and no
Reckless, this time, on the line for yes, yes, yes!
Reckless, brazen in the play
Of your changing traffic lights
Coward! slinking down the hall
To another restless night

As we center behind the eight ball
As we rock between the sheets
As we siphon the colored language
Off the farms and the streets
Here in Good-Old-God-Save-America
the home of the brave and the free
We are all hopelessly oppressed cowards Of some duality
Of restless multiplicity
(Oh, say, can you see?)

Restless for streets and honky tonks
Restless for home and routine
Restless for country, safety, and her
Restless for the likes of reckless me
Restless sweeps like fire and rain
Over virgin wilderness
It prowls like hookers and thieves
Through bolt locked tenements

Behind my bolt locked door
The eagle and the serpent are at war in me
The serpent fighting for blind desire
The eagle for clarity
What strange prizes these battles bring
These hectic joys, these weary blues
Puffed up and strutting when I think I win
Down and shaken when I think I lose

There are rivets up here in this eagle
There are box cars down there on your snake
And we are twins of spirit
No matter which route home we take
Or what we forsake
We're going to come up to the eyes of clarity
And we'll go down to the beads of guile
There is danger and education
In living out such a reckless life style

I touched you on the central plains
It was plane-to-train, my twin
It was just plane shadow-to-train shadow But to me it was skin-to-skin
The spirit talks in spectrums
He talks mother earth-to-father sky
Self indulgence-to-self denial
Man-to-woman
Scales-to-feathers
You and I
Eagles in the sky
You and I
Snakes in the grass
You and I
Crawl and fly
You and I

Many a tear has to fall
But it's all in the game
All in the wonderful game
That we know as love
You have words with him
And your future's looking dim
But these things
Your hearts can rise above

Once in a while he won't call
But it's all in the game
Soon he'll be there at your side
With a sweet bouquet
And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waiting fingertips
And your hearts will fly away

Soon he'll be there at your side
With a sweet bouquet
Then he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waiting fingertips
And your hearts will fly away

In a place you only dream of
Where your soul is always free
Silver stages, golden curtains
Filled my head, plain as can be
As a rainbow grew round the sun
All the stars I've loved who've died
Came from somewhere beyond the scene you see
These lovely people played just for me
Now if I let you see this place
Where stories all ring true
Will you let me past your face
To see what's really you
It's not for me to ask these questions
As though I were a king
For you have to love, believe and feel
Before the burst of tambourines take you there

Green grass and high tides forever
Castles of stone souls and glory
Lost faces say we adore you
As kings and queens bow and play for you

Those who don't believe me
Find your souls and set them free
Those who do, believe and love
As time will be your key
Time and time again I've thanked them
For a piece of mind
They helped me find myself
Amongst the music and the rhyme
That enchants you there

Green grass and high tides forever
Castles of stone souls and glory
Lost faces say we adore you
As kings and queens bow and play for you....

OUTLAWS: GREEN GRASS AND HIGH TIDES.
My enemy said to me, "Love your enemy." And I obeyed him and loved myself.

scion, you gave me a serious earworm!!!! But, that song reminds me of being really young (like around 5 or 6, based on when it was a hit), and listening to a little transistor radio under my pillow at night!!!



Olive, I love that song! The Outlaws was one of the best concerts I ever saw (1977)!!

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love,
I oh I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love,
I oh I need your love
God speed your love to me '
- Unchained Melody.

for 'Doc' my late partner
it's been a year and time does go slowly..

Don't know why this song always makes me feel good, but it has to be sung by Al Green.
