Like Evangeline



Like Evangeline I will search for you henceforth
Through dream and world and life and death and beyond
Through valleys low echoing with my calls
And mountain peaks shouting back my cries
I will go on and I will not lose hope
The birds may take my pleas to you in pity
The wolf may howl my heartsong in the night
But I will never stop my journey towards you
I will not concede my loss and fight
The world is not so large a place that you are lost forever
In it's jungles, streets, it's woodlands and it's glens
The eye of my heart will surely find your hiding place
And joy will overflow me once again
I search, though foot weary and soul tired
I search, though humbled by the lack of sight
Very little in the way of clues has guided me thus far
But still, I look for you, my love, and I swear, will not turn back
And if, like Evangeline, I find you there at death's door, waiting
I will not say that my journey was fruitless or call the searching
Wasteful of my life
I will say, as that one did, in anguish and in joy incomprehensible:
Father, thank you for the beating heart that beat in time with mine
And for the warmth that slipped away to cold there in my hands
The love I felt one last sweet time as sweet as that I bear you now
Still searching, still looking, still walking
The roads of the earth that someday will lead me back to you.

Thank you. Are you familiar with the story of Evangeline?

written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and redone by my friend Layne, a distant relative of his.

Click on Listen and hear clips from each poem. Layne has a beautiful, beautiful voice. This is one of the most incredible CDs you could ever hear.

Thank you for reading poetry as it should be read: With your heart.

Wicked Game

"Wicked Game"

The world was on fire, no-one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you
And I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you

No I don't wanna fall in love
this world is always gonna break your heart
No I don't wanna fall in love
this world is always gonna break your heart
..with you

What a wicked game to play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing you do
To make me dream of you

No I don't wanna fall in love
this world is always gonna break your heart
No I don't wanna fall in love
this world is always gonna break your heart
..with you

The world was on fire, no-one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
No and I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'll never dream that I lose somebody like you, no

Now I wanna fall in love
This world is always gonna break your heart
Now I wanna fall in lust
This world is always gonna break your heart
..with you

Nobody loves no-one

Looking in the Eyes of Love by Allison Krausse

"Looking In The Eyes Of Love"

I wonder should I tell you
`bout all the crazy things I've ever done
I've been searching all my life
And when I should have stayed
I tried to run
I was searching for an answer
In a world full of strangers
But what I found was never real enough
Now that I've found you
I'm looking in the eyes of love

Darlin' you've been good to me
You are so much more than I deserve
I never thought that I would find
Someone who's so sweet and kind like you
Please believe me when I say
This time I won't run away
I swear by all of heaven's stars above
Now that I've found you
I'm looking in the eyes of love

[Chorus:]
Looking in the eyes of love I can see forever
I can see you and me walking in this old world together
Lord my heart's found a home
I've been dreaming of
Now that I've found you
I'm looking in the eyes of love

[Chorus]

Listen to Me by Bill Miller, Native American singer

Listen To Me

If I took away your shelter, put you on the street
If I took away your table and chairs, threw away your meat
Stole away your wife and child, see how lonesome you would be
Is that what it would take for you to listen to me
If I took away your legs and you could never walk
If I took away your words and you could never talk
Blinded your eyes and you could never see
Locked you up in shackles and you were no longer free
Is that what it would take for you to listen to me...
Listen to me, I am the thunder you refuse to hear
I am the Rock you can't hide under
You have nothing more to fear
This is a time for healing, the scars upon the land
My son, listen to me..
If I gave you a blanket, you could be warm
If I gave you a roof to stay under
Would that save you from the storm
Gave you all the money you could ever spend
Do you think that means your troubles would finally end
Is that what it would take for you to listen to me
Listen to me, I am the thunder you refuse to hear
I am the Rock you can't hide under
You have nothing more to fear
This is a time for healing, the scars upon the land
My son, listen to me
I give you the seed dig your roots deep in the land
Here's a blade to turn the soil grow somethin' in the sand
I give you all my blessings, my blood runs through your veins
I will stand beside you, even when it rains
My son listen to me
Listen to me, I am the thunder you refuse to hear
I am the Rock you can't hide under
You have nothing more to fear
This is a time for healing, the scars upon the land
My son, listen to me..

FOREVER RIDE by Bill Miller
« Reply #6 on: July 22, 2005, 05:23:33 PM »
Out beyond the broken billboards and the signs along the road
There's a trail your heart must follow no one but you could ever know
Where the winds and the coyote sing a song you've never heard
From a place that's long forgotten but you'll remember every word

Chorus:
In a world that's always changing find the things that stay the same
Like the moon and stars that guide you out across the sweeping plain
Keep your eye on the horizon when you cross that great divide
All you have is what's inside you when you take that lonesome ride

Forever ride, forever ride, forever ride

So go to sleep now little brother, dream of red tails in the west
I know until you find your way there, your crazy soul will never rest
We'll chase the horses in the springtime, when the desert flowers bloom
You may never hear my footstep, but I will always be with you

Repeat chorus

Lyrics to a great song by a great artist Amos Lee
« Reply #9 on: October 14, 2005, 10:02:36 PM »
Keep it loose, Keep it tight

Well I walked over the bridge
Into the city where I live and I saw my old landlord
Well we both said hello
There was no where else to go
Cause his rent I couldn’t afford

Well relationships change
Though I think it’s kind of strange how money makes a man grow
Ah, some people they claim if you get enough fame
You live over the rainbow
Over the rainbow
But the people on the street,
Out on buses or on feet
We all got the same blood flow

Oh in society every dollar got a deed
We all need a place that we can go and feel over the rainbow

Some times we forget what we got
And who we are and who we are not
I think we got a chance to make it right
Keep it loose
Keep it tight
Keep it tight

I’m in love with a girl who’s in love with the world
Though I can’t help but follow
Though I know someday she is bound to go away and stay over the rainbow
Got to learn how to let her go
Over the rainbow

But sometimes we forget who we got
Who they are and who they are not

There is so much more in love than black and white
Keep it loose child
You gotta keep tight
Keep it loose child
Keep it tight
Keep it tight
Keep it tight

All My Friends by Amos Lee awesome song with great lyrics
« Reply #10 on: October 14, 2005, 10:05:02 PM »
All My Friends

All my friends
They all live in pain
Longing for the warmth of childhood to bring them home again
All my friends
They got broken hearts
And if the world’s a stage we’re searching for our parts

We’ll face the winds that break the strongest of trees
Beckon for the sweet soft summer breeze

All my friends
They got broken wings
Never will you hear them asking why the caged bird sings
All my friends
They know how to live
Oh, so much sorrow and so much love to give

We’ll face the winds that break the strongest of trees
Beckon for the sweet soft summer breeze


Now we all know that the storm is coming
Every body wants to know which way to go
I see the crowds a running
The wind’s gonna blow

All my friends are dear to me
Oh when the storm comes they’re as close as family
All my friends are the ones I choose
Oh, if I hear them knockin’
You know I can’t refuse

We’ll face the winds that break the strongest of trees
Beckon for the sweet soft summer breeze

All my friends

Colors

Yesterday I got lost in the circus
Feeling like such a mess
Now I’m down I’m just hanging on the corner
I can’t help but reminisce
When you’re gone all the colors fade
When you’re gone no New Year’s Day parade
You’re gone
Colors seem to fade

Your mama called she said that you’re down stairs crying
Feeling like such a mess
Yeah I hear you you’re in the background bawling
What happened to your sweet summertime dress

I know we all, we all got our faults
We get locked in our vaults and we stay
But when you’re gone all the colors fade
When you’re gone no New Year’s Day parade
You’re gone
Colors seem to fade
Colors seem to fade
Yeah

"Dont Push"
The Exit

beginners luck, white legs
in and out, of a sleep
behind the wheel, black eyes
like to scream, you do if you can feel

the glass breaks, glass shattering
find your angel, lose your hobby
everybody, you gotta do something right
if you find love hold on tight

don't push, your love away
don't push, your love away

then on the walk on my way back home
i get a call from a friend on the telephone
he says come here i've got this girl to see
but beware, love isnt always free
upon first glance, i got so hungry
forbidden fruits, you gotta taste them
i took one bite, we all take chances
poison lips, doomed romances

don't push, your love away (don't push your love away)
don't push, your love away (don't push your love away)

a kiss of death, on the door
thats what you get, for takin home a whore
i shouldnt say that, it doesnt sound nice
faith removes my fear sometimes
i'm too shy, you're too sharp
together we can work eachother out
loves too quick, she's always been
we're in your bed, drunk with adrenaline

don't push, your love away (don't push your love away)
don't push, your love away (don't push your love away)

and i can see better days
we can share, love can save
you can hide in yourself
we can go our seperate ways

and i've seen better days
pass me by in a haze
and we've seen better days
pass us by in a haze
i've seen better days

don't push your love away
I unify in order to enlighten
Attracting life.
I seal the matrix of universal fire
With the magnetic tone of purpose.
I am guided by my own power doubled.

Beyond The Door Lays A New Path For Us On Our Jorney...........One Day We'll See Our Fate In

bullet with butterfly wings
smashing pumpkins

the world is a vampire, sent to drain,
secret destroyer, hold you up to the flames,
and what do I get, for my pain,
betrayed desires adn apeice of the game,
even though i know,
I suppose i'll show,
all my cool and cold, like old job,

despite al my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage,
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in  a cage,
 then someone will say, what is lost can neve be saved,
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage

now i am naked, nothing but an animal,
but can you fake it,for just one more show,
and what do you want, i want change,
 and what hve you go, when you feel the same,
even though i know, i supose i'll show, all my cool and cold like old job

despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage,
despite all my rage i am still just a rat ina cage,
then someone will sya what is lost can never be saved,
despite all my rage i am still just a rat ina cage

tell me I'm the only one, tell me there's no other one,
 jesus was an only son, tell me i'm the chosen one,
jesus was the only son for you,

despite all my rage i am still just rat in a cage,
despite al my rage I am still just a rat ina cage,
then someone will say what is lost cn never be saved,
despite all my rage I am sti just rat in a cage

despite almy rage i am still just a rat ina,
despite all my rage i am still just a rat ina,
 despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage,
tell me i'm the only one, tell me there's no other one,
jesus was the only son for you,
and i still beleive that I cannot be saved,
and i still beleive that I cannot be saved,
and i still beleive that I cannot be saved,


( I have this song memorized. LOL)
" 'tis now the witching time of night,
when churchyards yawn and hell itself breaths out contagion to this world,
now, could I drink hot blood, and do such bitter business as the day would quake to look on."
