Your dreamer is speaking rather clearly to you. It's a message that is hard for you.

Before i had my dream, and got distracted...I was going to post a couple of Rush songs I just listened to...but this is the important one at the moment.

Bravado (Rush)

If we burn our wings
Flying too close to the sun
If the moment of glory
Is over before itís begun
If the dream is won --
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

When the dust has cleared
And victory denied
A summit too lofty
River a little too wide
If we keep our pride --
Though paradise is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

And if the music stops
Thereís only the sound of the rain
All the hope and glory
All the sacrifice in vain
[and] if love remains
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

Not a song, but a poem.
It has been running through my mind.
When I was in high school I actually wrote a song to these words and played it on my guitar...

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold
Her early leaf is flower
But only so an hour
Then leaf subsides to leaf
So eden sank to grief
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

By Robert Frost

This song's been on my mind because of some things that have been happening lately.

Desperado - Eagles

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You've been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow


Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get


Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walking through this world all alone


Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before it's too late

(Snow Patrol)
"Chasing Cars"

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Watchmen-"Stereo"

My life is a stereo
How loud does it go
What songs do I know
And what ever happened to my plans
What ever happened to life I thought I'd have

My life is a stereo
Kind of cheaply made though
How bad does it show
What ever did become of all my friends
What ever happened to the likes of all of them

My life is a stereo
Turn me on and let's go
Turn me up louder
I'll scream as loud and clear as I can scream
If you like what you're hearing please hang on to me

I like being here and I'm all hooked up wrong
Hang on to me though I'm one of a million
Please hang on to me

My life is a stereo
Out of phase but you know
Sixty cycles humming
And what ever happened to my friends
What ever happened to the likes of all of them

I like being here and I'm all hooked up wrong
Hang on to me though I'm one of a million
Please hang on to me

And my lights are like candles
I'm so afraid of new technology
I'm in the race and I don't to be
I'm so afraid of what's to come to be
I'm in the race and I don't to be

Life ends in stereo
Pack me up and let's go
Put me anywhere
Please don't think of leaving me behind
Whatever happens to you I'll get on just fine

One of a million

U2- One



Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
carry each other
carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
See we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't keep holding on
To what you got
When all you've got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters, brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One...
One...

Plaaaay backwards,
Hear why its sung here, oppositioner!
All on track, all arriving
They all sing, and they are one.
Shall I loathe you now, parishoner?
Oh hear Him, Christian within me.
It stirs my sin; the river,
Oh, she swells with our lousiness.
All my life will end for him?
We're all out of signs,
I know I'm sorta shocked
To hear The Lord,
My God now will save me!

Oh I will n'er be saved,
Because I live with Satan..
One wish today;
That you'll all pray for
Three who will make it here late.
Pray now and you'll see..
The 'Lord' turned me on,
But, oh, I was the shaggy fool..
Clothed in agony,
Lost at a height.

There's no escaping it,
Nor his woes..
So here's to my Sweet Satan.
The other's little path
Would make me sad,
Whose power is faith.
He'll give those with him 666.
And all the evil fools,
they know he made
us suffer sadly.

Ohohohoh...
"Family won't get loose,
They're offered me."
Always soothes the worker.
Always will be as we know now
"I see ruins," said he,
"the world they offered me?
Who wished the Lord's fall?"
If we lose feather,
Say you'll save me!

And no wimps can bend the rules..
And no wimps can do..

Hunt next to the shore,
'Cause they see all from there,
See here's the news,
Who walks with mute grief!
Perhaps no-one found thee...
"Heavy, lift me out,"
Spake the Reve,
"Someday, failed, we'll lose one line-up,
They've gotta leave forsaken."

And no wimps can do..
And no wimps can do...

He, who say the lords
Thoth have our laws,
Maat must be superb. Mass is ended..
Over there,
He who should learn thee.
Any moot that serves by my sworn music,
I wish it with snow be shushed,
All for my mass's sake.
Hear why its sung,
here, oppositioner, Ohh..
He who should show
May make his show worthy,
To look, for us, odd.. sickly,
There's one chance - take his show.
Hold thy head,
Hear why its sung here, oppositioner.
Who owns this earth built below?
Oh sweet Israel...

In case you haven't figured it out yet, this is the song. I don't think that Led Zeppelin set out to do this, certainly not consciously at least. But it is a rather fascinating coincidence, especially when you consider that an unknown force was said to be guiding Robert Plant's pen as he was writing this song. I don't think that this ruins the forward version of the song either, it's still a great song with a great message.

R.E.M. LYRICS


"The Great Beyond"

I've watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
I can't believe that I believed I wished
That you could see
There's a new planet in the solar system
There is nothing up my sleeve

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

In all this talk of time
Talk is fine
But I don't want to stay around
Why can't we pantomime, just close our eyes
And sleep sweet dreams
Me and you with wings on our feet

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
I Look into the stars
I Look into the moon

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great
Answers from the great, answers

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great
Answers from the great, answers

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I heard this song on the radio this morning and it hit me like a ton of bricks. This is for all of us who have dealt with this.



Artist: The Fray lyrics
Title: How To Save A Life


Lyrics to How To Save A Life :

Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
How to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
How to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life

To me this song isn't just about suicide, it is also about losing friendships you think could have been saved if only the other person was willing to listen.

Yes, it is. And that is an agony many who those who suicide face; if only they could hear; if only we had said the right thing; if only.....

The truth is once someone decides there is not much anyone can say to disuade them. Even before that point, if someone is fairly close to it, there is a slim chance of finding an opening that they may hear you, but it is slim indeed.

This is the agony those left behind face and it sounds like whoever wrote this song has faced it.

For some reason, our chats of the past couple nights reminded me of this song:


We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With the Man Who Sold The World

I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
We must have died alone, a long long time ago

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the Man who Sold the World

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the Man who Sold the World

Radiohead:

"Where I End And You Begin"
---------------------------

There's a gap in between
There's a gap where we meet
Where I end and you begin
And I'm sorry for us
The dinosaurs roam the earth
The sky turns green
Where I end and you begin
I am up in the clouds
I am up in the clouds
And I can't and I can't come down
I can watch and cant take part
Where I end and where you start
Where you, you left me alone
You left me alone
X'll mark the place
Like the parting of the waves
Like a house falling in the sea
In the sea
I will eat you alive [x4]
There'll be no more lies [x4]
I will eat you alive [x4]
There'll be no more lies [x4]
I will eat you alive [x4]
There are no more lies [x4]
I will eat you alive [x3]

A friend connected me to this song she felt connected her to her partner.........for some reason today it connects me also to my own....

Youíve been my best friend all these years
Youíve kept holding on to me through all the trials and the tears
Only you and I could know all the sacrifices
That let this feeling grow
There were so many times we could have said goodbye
We could have called it quits but honey you and i

Weíre survivors we made through the storm
When Iíve needed shelter Iíve found it in your arms
Survivors in love enough to fight
Together in this thing for life

There were times I lost my mind
Took some wrong turns you got me back in line
There were times you lost control
But I stood by you I loved you heart and soul
When faith was tested and dreams were fading fast
We held each other close until the rain had passed

Weíre survivors we made through the storm
When Iíve needed shelter Iíve found it in your arms
Survivors in love enough to fight
Together in this thing for life

A little time and tenderness
Has seen us through the years
Weíll still be side by side
When the final smoke has cleared

Weíre survivors we made through the storm
When Iíve needed shelter Iíve found it in your arms
Survivors in love enough to fight
Together in this thing for life
Together in this thing for life

Finger Eleven
"One Thing"

Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
Itís nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

[Chorus:]
If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldnít that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I donít want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

[Chorus x2]

Even though I know
I donít want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

Even though I know
I donít want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

[Chorus x3]

"Who Am I?" ...performed by Nina Simone

(1950) Leonard Bernstein

Who am I
Who am I
Was it all planned in advance
Or was I just born by chance in July
Who on earth am I
My friends only think of fun
They're such a curious a lot
Must I be the only one
Who thinks these mysterious thoughts

Some day I'll die
Will I ever live again
As a mountain lion
Or a rooster, a hen
Or a robin, or a wren, or a fly
Oh, who am I

Do you believe in reincarnation
Do you believe in reincarnation
Were you ever here before
Have you ever had dreams
That you knew were true
Some time before in your life
Have you ever had that experience
So you must question

All the truths that you know
All the love and the life
That you know and say
Who am I

Will I ever live again
As a mountain lion
Or a rooster, a hen
Or a robin, or a wren, or a fly
If I'm one of those lives
That have been reincarnated again
And again, and again
Oh, who am I

The Verve

One Day

One day maybe we will dance again
Under fiery skies
One day maybe you will love again
Love that never dies

One day maybe you will see the land
Touch skin with sand
You've been swimming in the lonely sea
With no company

Oh, don't you want to find?
Can't you hear this beauty in life?
The roads, the highs, breaking up your life
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

One day maybe you will cry again
Just like a child
You've gotta tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end

Oh, don't you want to find?
Can't you hear this beauty in life?
The times, the highs, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

Oh, you're too afraid to touch
Too afraid you'll like it too much
The roads, the times, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

One day maybe I will dance again
One day maybe I will love again
One day maybe we will dance again
You know you've gotta
Tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end
One day maybe you will love again
You've gotta tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end

default 99 Red Balloons

Post by frmthhrt on Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:17 pm

99 Red Balloons
Songwriters: Mcalea, Kevin (Eng Lyr); Karges, Carlo; Fahrenkrog-Petersen, Joer;

You and I, and a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
'Til one by one, they were gone

Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message, "Some thing's out there"
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic lads, it's a red alert
There's something here from somewhere else

The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine Decision Street
Ninety-nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry

This is what we've waiting for
This is it boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine knights of the air
Riding super high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a super hero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk

With orders to identify, to clarify and classify
Scrambling in the summer sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
Every one a red balloon
Now it's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go

Leggatt- White Flags (this is the original, B.O.C. did a cover)
(lyrics by Gordy and Hugh Leggat )

Hold me close, don't fear my body. The flesh
is weak, in need of touching.
Your hands are hungry for want of knowing.
Your eyes are closed, but still they're showing.
Light the white flags of surrender.
The war is over, the battle's ended.
Like the snowflake in my hand that's melting,
Can't you feel my love?
Can't? Can't you feel my love?
Waiting to be touched? Can't you feel my love?
Like the sky touches the sea, arising, we will be.
Can't you feel my love?

In my arms no fear of falling - we can share my gravity.
See how time will stop forever,
The moment that our eyes do meet.
Light the white flags of surrender.
The war is over, the battle's ended.
Like the snowflake in my hand that's melting,
Can't you feel my love?
Can't? Can't you feel my love?
Waiting to be touched? Can't you feel my love?
Like the moon touches the sun, an
eclipse then we'll be gone.
Can't you feel my love?

Capture my senses.
Ravage my perception.
Take me! Take me! Away! Away! Love!

Hold me close, don't fear my body. The flesh
is weak, in need of touching.
Your hands are hungry for want of knowing.
Your eyes are closed, but still they're showing.
Light the white flags of surrender.
The war is over, the battle's ended.
Like the snowflake in my hand that's melting,
Can't you feel my love?
Can't? Can't you feel my love?
Waiting to be touched? Can't you feel my love?
Like the sky touches the sea, arising, we will be.
Can't you feel my love?
Love, can't you feel my love?
Can't you feel my love? Can't you feel my love?
Love! Love! Can't you feel my love?
Love! Love! Can't you feel my love?
Love! Love! Can't you feel my love?
Love! Love! Can't you feel my love?
Can't you? Can't you feel my love?
Love! Love! Can't you feel my love?

Lost Together by Blue Rodeo


Strange and beautiful are the stars tonight
that dance around your head
In your eyes I see that perfect world
I hope that doesnt sound too weird

I want all the world to know
that your love's all I need
all that I need

and if we're lost
than we are lost together
and if we're lost
we are lost together

Stand before this faceless crowd
I wonder why I bother
So much control by so few
Stumbling from one disaster to another

I've heard it all so many times before
It's all a dream to me now
A dream to me now

And if we're lost
Then we are lost together
Yea if we're lost
We are lost together

In the silence of this whispered night
I listen only to your breath
In that second of a shooting star
Somehow it all makes sense

And I want all the world to know
That your love's all I need
All that I need
And if we're lost
Then we are lost together
Yea if we're lost
Then we are lost together

The Watchmen: He's Gone



Dreamt I turned my head around last night
And I got up saw you sleeping
Yeah you were shaking
What am I to do I've lost my father now
Will I be alright yeah will I make it

You're still in my life today
You're still in my thoughts ok
You're still in my life today
You're still in my life

Who on God's great earth can take a life of strength and fire
And just start weeping from the outside in
What I'm thinking now I'm taking all the blame for
It's been relieving you leaving

You're still in my life today
You're still in my thoughts ok
You're still in my life today
You're still in my life today

I'm sad he's gone

How can I survive without my friend of mine
He was not perfect yet somehow perfect
What am I to do I've lost that part of me
Will I be alright yeah will I make it

You're still in my life today
You're still in my thoughts ok
You're still in my life today
You're still in my life today

I'm sad he's gone

Nothing's ever as bad as it seems to be
And I know I've been taken by my wicked dreams

Sad he's gone

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER
"Watching Over You"
(Lake, Sinfield)
Good night, good night....
Look at that moon shine so bright.
And tonight he smiles
Especially for you.


Sleep tight, sleep tight.
Know everything is alright.
And tonight I will be here
Watching over you.


For tonight I will be here watching over you.
Tonight I'll be here watching over you.


Sweet dreams, sweet dreams.
It is never as real as it seems.
And in the morning when you wake up
I will be right here.


Sleep on, sleep on.
For no matter how dark or how long
It may seem that your night is
I will still be here.


I will still be here watching, watching over you.
So sleep, little darling, sleep on through.


So be still, be still
For you know that I always will
Tonight and forever
Be watching over you.


For tonight and forever, be watching over you.
So sleep, little darling, sleep on through.


I will be watching over you.

Yesterday was an emotional day for me, at my dad's family home, so this was very relevant...and thanks for that one. Very cool.
Our parents do live on in us, in so many different ways...
