The wind’ll blow/ the rain will pound/ but her strength will flow all around
Does she stay with hope? Or aim for peace? Accept her fate and let the struggle cease?
Does the answer lie/ in the sky above/ or can we do it based on love?
When the sun shines bright She basks in light/ when the sun goes down it all feels so profound/ but she still believes
The seasons pass like a spinning top; the snow is cold and the wind won’t stop
The time will come / when the pain is gone and her smile shines like a new day’s sun
Rain and wind and darkness loom/ will the flower keep its bloom?
The clouds grow dark and the wind kicks in/ it’s seems the battle must begin
Sunshine and laughing and rolling in leaves, The world is their oyster or so they believe
The journey is long and the future unclear/ Taking stock now of all I hold dear
The words float by/ I hear longing and fear/ Just can't decide what I want to hear
Why didn't I think to speak from my heart, pride is a jail, the truth is an art
The words start to echo, my head starts to spin/ I was walking away but she brought me back in
The ice starts to thaw, the rage dissipates, the sun starts to shine and my heart can't wait
Set yourself free, she said to the sun/ Give a gift to yourself and forgive someone
I feel broken and afraid, she said to the sky/ like a bird in a cage wishing it could fly
Light the night / We all take flight/ Dawn has come /Love has won
Dawn has come/ love someone/ light the night / we all take flight
dare to care & spread some love, dare to care and help someone
lifting the world out of a darkness and plight
we'll soar thru the sky, we'll reach new heights
our hopes are high that we can embrace the night
We're rising up, with all our might
Can you feel their pain? Let's help put them back together again
What can we do to shatter this darkness, to stand in the light and feel that catharsis
The darkness is thick and the future uncertain, but that beacon of light seems to open a curtain
The dreams of the past still swirl like clouds, taunting and laughing screaming "you're not allowed"
She walks in the darkness, the silence so loud, what lurks in the shadows? The future disavowed.
The road seems so long and the challenge quite daunting, but I keep pushing on bc the darkness is haunting
Bright and shiny, the day started like others, the world started shaking, she had to run for cover
The breeze was warm, the water was cool, little did we know the future could be so cruel
It's thick, but I can't touch it. It's heavy but it weighs nothing. It hurts me but it's not bloody.
It all starts in the dark. A doubt, a fear, a caustic remark.
Turns out all hearts are fragile, sometimes broken and invisible. You don't know your power, offering help can be reciprocal
Reach out and reach up and reach all around. Connect with another and peace will abound
The breeze will caress and the sun will warm / My mind will relax and my heart will be calm
I see the light at the end of the tunnel, I just have to figure out how to pass through this funnel
We can come together. We can make a difference. We can take our lives back and recognize our significance
What's in this moment - your personality seems changed? I can't read your energy - all seems rearranged
I'm not saying it's east\y, but what can we do to shift your view just a few degrees?
What if we chat or sit in silence? I'm happy to be here. Just know that I'm trying.
Speak to me. You voice touches me.
The feathers are ruffled, the browl is furled, what can I do to expose the pearl?
I know there is light within, but I see you there in the dark. I'm reaching out to light that spark.
Rescue me. Left to my own devices, I can not see.
Encourage me. I'll break out joyfully.
One day I'll fly, finally.
Clouds and smoke and swirling dreams, I wish the truth is how it seems
The road can be so dark. The Lightning electrifies and I search for a hopeful spark
What about Kathryn Simova's line "Slow-mo Romeo"
Time & Trouble & More Time
That frantic, pedantic, romantic, tilting at windmills but hiding under my bed
I'm walking around upside down, spinning and swinging but forging ahead
I'm stuck in the mud as thick as glue, but I'm clawing my way out and back to you
The end is not now and I repeat it too / but my thoughts swirl around up and down the corkscrew
Clocks tapping tunes as the leaves are all chattering/ the world is teetering as my heart is clamoring
The stars tell the story of me and you
My mind is reeling from reading so many great lyrics! So many great ideas that I now can't even think of one! But I am so excited to see what Chris does with these!
The fork in the road, where I decide what I'm gonna do
Wonder of the world, magic in the sky, I think I know just what to do
the words that we say, pray, bray/ the dreams that we weigh, play, slay...
The might stare, they might gawk, but I hold my head high and walk my walk
Running in circles, the tail wags the dog / cant see the world in front of me, my head filled with fog
But I don't care, I'm making my way / The fork was a spoon, now I gotta pay!
They all have a plan, seems like they walk a straight line, but I zig and zag, stalking a sign
I see only darkness but I refuse to give in / I search for the answer but my mind is a sieve
The lightbulb goes on, my heart pitter patters, words start to form / pray it's not mindless chatter
I'm a scared crow growing old, stuffing out, falling over
Cuz she's a wild child rocking the boat, eyes blazing, Guess I can only hope
She's a doe-eyed china doll, staring at the sky/ I'm waiting, waiting waiting, never asking why
I'm a big game grand slam, walking circles trying t'make plans
Tic Tac, Rant & Smash, Balls to the wall, I'm on my way back
The seas are rough but the air is fine/ making it happen, I will, and she'll be mine
I'm a high rolling smokey joe, talking big til I'm running out the door
The river is flowing as I walk thru the trees, my mind is racing as I feel the breeze
My suit is pressed and I'm ready to go, the story is written, but wish I could change the flow.
I got so much to do but I can't remember, I thought it was June but it's now September
The sky is the limit, but the limit is me, planning forever my life-long journey
I bounce off the walls, planning great plans / tho someone said once actions make the man
My glasses are steamed cuz my mind is spinning, should be the end, but its only the neginning
Visions and shadows and beams of light, I see the time pass, day to night, day to night
The sun comes out, I should start my day, running and running, always distracted by foul play
Zooming around by the seat of my pants, bouncing off walls, ain't a pretty dance
I'm tweeting, I'm texting, things are buzzing and beeping/My head is spinning, I don't feel like speaking
My heart is beating and the clock is ticking, I'm rushing out the door/ discover I got nothing kicking
The worls is calling, I want to go out, but I'm stuck, I can't move, on this big comfy couch
The clock on the wall is laughing at me/ Cuz I can't really move, feel like a Salvador Dali
The sun shines bright over a rocky road / we take each step and go for gold
I feel the wind upon my face, I remember back, a different time and place
Here we go, we're on our way, each step further takes us to the promised land
The days are long, but the nights are cool, we stand together, its what we do
The will is strong, there's much to gain, the music's loud, here's the sun again
You're the same guy you were when you first heard/only stronger now that you're beating the turd (sorry couldn't resist - turd seems appropriate tho I could certainly use harsher words)
The enemy is fierce and the future uncertain, but I have no doubt we will see morning
It won't be easy, the journey is tough, we'll do it together, we've got the stuff
Time to rise, let's take a stand, friends for life, grab my hand
Let's face it, let's take it, let's do it together
Bowie really might have been channeling us with this song - Ode to Starman?
Ode to 4 and 5 Syllable Words ;~)
I like Grant Edwards "Cosmic Misdirection" ...makes me think of Bowie
The world is big, sky is even bigger/ ain't got time, let's discover!
I can fly/ I'm ready to try/ Let's take the leap and feel the breeze
It's time do important things, no more wasting it on idiocy
I got a ticket outta here, ain't wasting more time, let's get on outta here
Flying high and reaching for that sky/ the tick of the clock keeps pushing me
Ain't that hard to keep the inspiration/ You got fire in those eyes
Nothing common, nothing new/ Didn't think I'd miss / the journey I was on with you
The road is new but feels familiar/ I meet myself / Just like a stranger
I can fly / I don't know why / I can soar/ Just like before
Laughter ever after, around the corner there is rapture
My journey's long/ my heart is full/ I search the sky / it's beautiful
The sights are new and the faces foreign, my heart is full, so full of longing
The story is long, but the details are few, the fog is thick and all is askew
I see stars in the twilight, a twinkle in the night
Don't know how we got here, but I'm moving on for more
you got those rosy glasses on - things may not be what they seem!
That's it, I'm taking off, on the run
think you're the only one?
Fireworks were there in the sky that night. Only I saw them. The start of my plight.
why don't you see right back at me
what does it mean, can't run and hide
why did I stay here, why did I try
The road is long, the journey tough, I saw a star but it wasn't enough...
Its dark, it's cold, the moon is full
Spinning, flying, floating, screaming, can't take no more I keep repeating!
The world is spinning, big and blue, lots to see, not just you
Sun was setting, world in bloom, but now future's bright I'll accept no doom
The journey that I thought we'd make, is nothing like the one I'll take
But my one desire is a future full of fire
But I got a plan and you can bet you're not my man
I'm not gonna stay/Ain't no one left to play
you live and you learn, then you take a new turn
But I'm cutting those ties and I'll be the one who flies!
But I'm not your toy no more
The fire is out, the coals are cool cuz I finally learned what is true
So I'm taking my heart and I'm moving on up!
took me to that place that felt so right
Started out sweet, swept me off of my feet
Sunsets and roses, such a sweet look in your eye
Winner takes all and I'm gonna take it
I got the bull by the horns and I am walking out strong
I got guts, not in no rut, the sky is the limit and I'm gonna win it!
tried and tried laughed and cried
To me you'll always be/ a fait accompli/ my unopened letter.
The silence hurts but I might just find that I am free
My heart aches and I...can't stop tryin to make this rhyme!
Funny how I don't recognize the reflection
I spilled it all, I said my piece, I laid it bare, but ni relief.
Yet the clock ticks on and it stares at me, oh so tempted, but then I flee.
Like a beacon og light, a soft rumbling drum. It stares at me and I want to run.
The doorbell rang, and when I opened the door...
Loved it! Can't wait for the next one!
My eyes are wide. I suddenly see. The past is gone and we are free.
I see it now. I understand. The path is clear. I'll take a stand.
It calls to me to think again. I see the light. I'll make rigjt..
The road is long and the path ain't clear, but I'm just trying to lose the fear.
Suddenly it's clear to me. Despite it all, we were meant to be.
A light that shines beckons me I feel like I'm about to see.
Blinders are off. I'm hoping to see...
I'll give an inch, but it feels like a mile...
It was all so clear then it all disappeared...
Clouds roll away. Sun ready to shine. I take back my life and am feeling so fine.
It seemed so clear. I knew the answers. Who would've guessed it would cause such disasters.
What it is I cannot say, but my heart somehow, feels better anyway.
The rising sun, the burning light, what I don't see just can't be right
It was all so clear, written in stone, but lightning strikes and changes the tone.
I thought I knew, but missed some signs, I stood my ground, but only wasted time.
The answer was clear, not single thing did I need to hear
The journey has ended, but did it really?/Feels like the beginning, only now it's peacefully.
The ocean mist washed her face/She now glides thru life with love and grace.
Blast from the past, the voice still rings/What she learned from the fall, now makes her sing.
Journey's end always comes so quick/Just get started, and before you know it...
You jumped too soon, didn't give it a chance/We laughed, we cried and we so often danced.
Let go, let go, feel what it's like/To have no bounds, and bask in the light.
With no word from the skies above, she hiked her boots for a labor of love
