Bone Shattered Conclusion

10/03/2010

Suddenly

we have come to a

breathtaking,

bone shattered conclusion

that there is nothing else

yet everything

is captured

with beautiful simplicity

in the here and now.

Too many times I’ve seen those ghosts before

27/02/2010

No darling, I can’t take your thirst away
but I can show you to the sea.
While you’re walking on your path unknown, say, will you think of me.

Well time will tell,
I wish you well.

Too many times I’ve seen those ghosts before:
I’ve watched them dance around your bed.
I would give you all of my sleep filled nights,
just to see you get some rest.

It’s not my place to try to fill that place,
but I can wish you well.
Oh, I wish you well.

In times like this
I start to ponder all the thing we’ll miss.
We can always reminisce.

When you come back from the great beyond,
with moonlight in your hair,
I will meet you where that dark road ends,
and it won’t be long until we’re there.

Once, once again,
we’ll talk about way back when.
Oh but until then, I wish you well.
Oh, I wish you well.

Justin Hines – I wish you well


In living every day

13/02/2010

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons ev’rywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As ev’ry fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way

But now it’s just another show
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away

I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living ev’ry day

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

 Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell


Life is like a gift they say, wrapped up…

13/02/2010

 

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift, they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up, and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like everytime a raindrop falls
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we are all a part

Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle

It seems so exceptional
That things work out after all
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sun comes out and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

Like starlight on snow…

05/02/2010

The winter sky above us
Was shining
In moonlight,
And everywhere around us
The silence
Of midnight.
And we had gathered snowflakes;
Remember
The soft light
Of starlight on snow.

Oooh, remember this,
For no-one knows
The way love goes.
Oooh, remember this,
For no-one knows
The way life goes.

– Enya


Smallest of gifts

03/02/2010

Somewhere
in a winter night
the angels
begin their flight;
dark skies
with miles to go,
no footsteps
to be lost in snow.

one is sorrow
one is peace
one will come
to give you sleep
one is comfort
one is grief
one will take
the tears you weep

New star
in a midnight sky
in heaven
all the angels fly
soft wings so true
and all things
they will give to you

Somewhere
in a winter night
the angels
begin their flight

Journey of angels – Enya


One Dream (Sarah McLauchlin)

24/01/2010

We can feel a change is coming
Like a kiss upon a tide
Breathing life into every heart
The hopeful kind of times
Cause we’ll walk this road together
Though at times we felt alone
In the struggle to leave dissent
We find the strength one yet to find

You carry your courage, carry the history
But all are gone before you
Wherever you come from
Or born of one dream finds you, standing here

And you know that you can make it
(can make it)
You’ve got the whole world in your hands
(whole world in your hands)
And you’ve spent a lifetime working for this moment
(working for this moment)
And you are shining
You’re all that you wanted to be

When you’re airborne and free
At peace with gravity
High above everyone can see
The spirit of human ecology
How your flame keeps burning
When you leave all doubt behind
It’s a giant leap for mankind
At peace we all shine

You carry your courage, carry the history
But all are gone before you
Wherever you come from
Or born of one dream finds you, standing here

And you know that you can make it
(you can make it)
You’ve got the whole world in your hands
(whole world in your hands)
Cause you’ve spent your lifetime working for this moment
(you are shining)
And you are shining
(you are shining)
You are all that you wanted to be
