2012

Two songs for 2012.




One More River
Don’t look back ’cause there’s one more river.
Don’t turn your back, you got one more river to cross.
No more fightin’, no more dyin’,
No more cheatin’, no more lyin’.

Don’t look back ’cause there’s one more river.
Don’t turn your back, you got one more river to cross.
Don’t start askin’ the rhyme or reason,
Don’t hold back, it’s the time of the season.

One more mile and one more road…
One last bridge and one less load…
One
More
River…






The Eagle Will Rise Again
And I could easily fall from grace,
Then another would take my place
For the chance to behold your face…

And the days of my life are but grains of sand
As they fall from your open hand
At the call of the wind’s command…

Many words are spoken when there’s nothing to say.
They fall upon the ears of those who don’t know the way
To read between the lines, that lead between the lines
That lead me to you.

All that I ask you
Is, show me how to follow you and I’ll obey.
Teach me how to reach you, I can’t find my own way.
Let me see the light…Let me be the light.

As the sun turns slowly around the sky
Till the shadow of night is high…
The eagle will learn to fly.

And the days of his life are but grains of sand
As they fall from your open hand
And vanish upon the land.

Many words are spoken when there’s nothing to say…
They fall upon the ears of those who don’t know the way
To read between the lines, by following the signs
That can lead to you…

But show me how to follow you and I’ll obey.
Teach me how to reach you, I can’t find my own way.
Let me see the light…Let me be the light.

And so, with no warning, nor last goodbye
In the dawn of the morning sky
The eagle will rise
Again.

“Whole sight; or all the rest is desolation. ”
-John Fowles, “Daniel Martin”

Thanksgetting

Cold turkey. Snap out of obsessions.
Thanksgiving is easier than thanksgetting.
Easier to love than be loved.
Easier to lend a shoulder, than to cry on one.
No one promised it would be easy though.
And we love the hard ways with a passion.
Easiness is overrated.
Easiness is often apparent,
and hardship often imagined.

Thanks for the Flood.
