Vincent (Starry Starry Night)

Vincent
Words/music: don mclean
Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summers day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps theyll listen now.
Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in vincents eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artists loving hand.
Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps theyll listen now.
For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.
Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and cant forget.
Like the strangers that youve met,
The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.
Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, theyre not listening still.
Perhaps they never will.

starry starry night
paint your palette blue and gray
look out on a summer's day
with eyes that know the darkness in my soul
shadows on the hill
sketch the trees and daffodils
catch the breeze and the winter chills
in colors on the snowy linen land
now i understand
what you tried to say to me
and how you suffered you sanity
and how you tried to set them free
they would not listen they did not know how
perhaps they'll listen now
starry starry night
flaming flowers that brightly blaze
swirling clouds in violet haze
reflect in vincent's eyes of china blue
colors changing hue
morning fields of amber grain
weathered faces lined in pain
are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand
now i understand
what you tried to say to me
they did not listen they did not know how
perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night:
Paint your palette blue and gray.
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills.
Sketch the trees and the daffodils;
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Now i understand
What you tried to say to me,
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen; they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.
Starry, starry night:
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze;
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in vincent's eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue:
Morning fields of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.
Now i understand
What you tried to say to me,
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen; they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.
For they could not love you
But still, your love was true.
And when no hope was left inside
On that starry, starry night
You took your life as lovers often do.
But i could've told you, vincent:
This world was never meant
For one as beautiful as you.
Starry, starry night:
Portraits hung in empty halls:
Frameless heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget;
Like the strangers that you've met:
The ragged men in ragged clothes.
The silver thorn, a bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.
Now i think i know
What you tried to say to me,
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen; they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will.

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summers day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul...
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Now I understand
What you tried to say, to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free:
They would not listen; they did not know how --
Perhaps theyll listen now.

Frameless heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and cant forget
Like the strangers that youve met

Do It And Be Set Free

Don't be the one,
Delayed to be forgiving.
Open up your heart,
And...
Blessings come,
You will know.

Don't be the one,
Delayed to be forgiving.
Open your eyes wide,
To realize...
Your gift IS life.

Don't be the one,
Delayed to be forgiving.
Do it and be set free.
Do it and you will see,
What God can do.

Don't be the one,
Delayed to be forgiving.
Do it and be set free.
Do it and you will see,
What God can do.
For you.
Do it and you will see,
What God can do.

Do it and you will see,
What God will undo for you.
Do it and you will see,
What God can do.

Don't be the one,
Delayed to be forgiving.
Do it and be set free.
Do it and you will see,
What God can do.
For you.
Do it and you will see,
What God can do.

Set Free!

Do you know how it is to be free?
I'm not talking of finite human rules
That complicate our life in trumpery
And flood these basal earth with fools

With motives naked of coercion
Allow me then this moment's piece
Experience is the better option
And from there, I will explain this

In forty -five years of fake religion
I assumed that I knew all of God
But like many lost in that Deception
An outside impression was all I had

All those years I was chained in anger
Plagued by fears and uncertainties
The unforgiving, wretched prisoner
Too proud to seek that inner Peace

When at the end of my rope I bled
I called on the Name 'Christ Jesus! '
That cry had my whole life in it said
And God's forgiveness cleared my dues

Joy first flooded my hardened heart
Peace made whole my brokenness
Christ in me, He will never depart -
I was set free by God's Grace and Kindness!

-
'For it is by grace you have been save through faith...'

Ephesians 2: 8-9

Let Yourself Go

(words & music by joy byers)
Well baby Im gonna teach you what loves all about tonight
Trust me honey everythings gonna be all right
You gotta do like I do there aint nothing to it
Listen to me baby anybody can do it
All you gotta do is just let yourself go
Now dont be afraid just relax and take it real slow
Cool it baby you aint got no place to go
Just put your arms around me real tight
Enjoy yourself baby dont fight
All you gotta do is just let yourself go
All you need is just a little rehearsal
The first thing that you know
Youll be ready for the grand finale
So come on baby lets go
Lets go, lets go lets go
Lets go
Take a real deep breath and put your warm red lips on mine
Just do like I tell you, everythings gonna be just fine
Kiss me nice and easy, take your time
Baby Im the only one here in line
All you gotta do is just let yourself go
Let yourself go right now yeh! let yourself go
Let yourself go right now yeh! let yourself go
Yeh! let yourself go
All you gotta do is just let yourself go

Set free

Set free

I was bonded laborer
Always sad and never happier
Kept in chains and not allowed to move
I prayed almighty to set me free and remove

It is like dark dungeon
Secluded place like pavilion
You are confined alone
To spend the life in isolation

No one must be kept in bondage
To be set free is divine privilege
Slavery had been in practice for ages
Same condition even not liked by birds in cage

I saw green parrot in captivity
It forced me to remember days being suffered under barbarity
I opened the gate for parrot to flee
Bird was in confinement and not allowed to fly as free

I could witness energy in his wings
Special sound was originated when he tried to sing
As if lions roared in jungle but with mind sound in air
Parrot crossed over river and looked for some one to make pair

How can we chain someone against will?
Let it be birds, human beings or wild animals
All love freedom and free movement
Ever felt joy with happiness at that moment

Enjoy and feel freedom for all
Don't create hurdle or high scale wall
World is to see and enjoy
Not to suffer and make others to annoy

The Feathers of Dreams

The midnight hour has long since past and still by candlelight I turn,
My eyes are burning with the strain of receiving all that surrounds them.
Naked as the day I was born I sense the dissolution of my limitations,
The spirit invoked, the last skin smoked and I am set free into the blanket night.
A light hearted melody fuels the motion of my mind and I dance
Wild and free upon the wings of expression adorned in the feathers of dreams.
As a Celtic knot wraps its shadow around my wrist a maiden appears in the shade,
The definition of her face is fading but there wading with the ghosts of a life
Long since lived she dwells, her emotion swelling upon the look within my eyes.
Offering her hand to me she offers freedom from this world of our awakening
Yet a shift in her smile allows her grace to lift one moment enough to see that
She is far from a position to offer the gifts she promises so lightly with her words.
She lies unheard of amongst those that would wish to measure her features
For she is beyond manifestation, she is creation adorned in the feathers of dreams.

With a pensive smile she embraced me, smothering me with her warm caress
And whispered into my ear ‘All is not as it once was, yet still all is one in the same.
Love thyself and love thy all and know that even when you have fallen I shall
Embrace you into my arms for I am all you aspire to be. I shall know you
Until your final dream and I shall walk with you through nightmares as I shall
Share with you the joys of the world. I shall drown in the sorrows of tomorrow
With you in my arms breathing fresh breath into your lungs until your day is done.
I am the sun as I am the moon as I am the flower in springtime bloom,
I am the blood that runs in your veins as I am the wind as I am the rain
I am the earth as I am the sky as I am the reason you wish you could fly.
I am the ghost of memories past, I am reflections in broken glass.
I am all and I am you and everything I say is true, believe and blessed be.’
As she spoke the last words of her wisdom she began to sink into the shade.
Fading by the moment she motioned a kiss upon the air as she ran her fingers
Through her hair and turned into the midnight sun, striding as one in perfect unity.

When a Wounded Heart is Set Free

When a wounded heart is set free
Doth it bring sorrow or joy?
Sorrow for what cometh to an end
Or joy for what the future holds

A pocketful of mixed emotions
Laced with intangible queries of the mind
Sorting through the excess rubble
Leaving all the questions of the heart behind

For when a wounded heart is set free
Tis more than one way to view the possibilities
Daunting embers of dismay
For a life that never shall be quite the same
Or perhaps the chance to fly somewhere
To heights once thought to be
Achievable only in your wildest dreams

Im Set Free

(reed)
Ive been set free and Ive been bound
To the memories of yesterdays clouds
Ive been set free and Ive been bound
And now Im set free
Im set free
Im set free to find a new illusion
Ive been blinded but
Now I can see
What in the world has happened to me
The prince of stories who walk right by me
And now Im set free
Im set free
Im set free to find a new illusion
Ive been set free and Ive been bound
Let me tell you people
What I found
I saw my head laughing
Rolling on the ground
And now Im set free
Im set free
Im set free to find a new illusion

Set Free

I remember once when your soul was clean
And also the time when that apple was green
The apple it grew from the tree upon its limb
And we matured from children, and grew into women and men
What happened to us then, was truly unforeseen.

I remember that apple, and it I would not pick
Though it was not deliberate or had it been a trick
So it grew all alone and then on the limb it rotted
From age and negligence it was also spotted
Now that apple disagreed with my body's politic.

I read and then I heard stories all about you
Sadly none were lies as they all were on the venue
We had been used and cheated as your soul had waited
Seems that was the purpose, that you were created
Never would I want to act or to become like you.

I read in the news that you had died
My reaction to that news I could not hide
As I remembered that rotten apple falling from the tree
Then it hit the ground, its essence was set free
So for you or the apple, I had not cried.

I Just Cant Make It By Myself

(words & music by clara ward)
I need jesus to guide me every day
As Im travellin along this rough and narrow way
Though afflictions fill my soul
Im determined to make the goal
Ive gotta have jesus cause I just cant make it by myself
Every day I pray (pray) pray (pray)
Pray (pray) pray (pray)
I pray (pray) pray (pray
Pray pray pray
Pray and ask the lord jesus
Dont leave me by myself
Every mornin through the years I pray
You know Ive got to have jesus
I just cant it by myself
By myself

All That Lies

words & music by jason mraz
Dont get me wrong cause I dont want to know what the truth is
I believe that Id be here with or without it
All that lies around put me where I am, where I stand
Tell me can you hear all the pretty sounds to hear
Tell me can you see all that lies around
Do you want to ride down the hill on my back?
On my back lying down on the job
Nobody slacking over here
Tell me can you look around, look around, look around
Everything is falling, falling down
Take your key and lock me up
Anything you wanna know, anything at all Im gonna tell you
Anything you want to know.
And I know far away, far away, far away, far away lies a man, lies a man
Doing what he can far away, far away
Doing what he likes for a man far away
Far away he lies awake and says what hes doing
He do the best that he can.

Doncha Think Its Time

(words & music by otis - dixon)
Ive been yearning for a little romance
I wanna know when you gonna give me a chance
Kiss me honey, tell me your mine
Doncha think its time
Ive been yearning for a sweet embrace
Rub my hair till Im a total disgrace
Kiss me honey make my life divine
Doncha think its time
I dont wanna walk without you
Walkin right by my side
It hurts me to see you talkin
With the other guys
I get so warm when you touch my cheek
You thrill me so much that I can hardly speak
Love me honey tell me youre mine
Doncha think its time
I dont wanna walk without you
Walkin right by my side
It hurts me to see you talkin
With the other guys
I get so warm when you touch my cheek
You thrill me so much that I can hardly speak
Love me honey tell me youre mine
Doncha think its time
Doncha think its time
Doncha think its time
Doncha think its time

Dreaming Of 4000

Saviour of the night came slowly on the silent river
And the lord of life came following, his sins to be forgiven
While the world sat back and laughed away the hours
Till the dawning of the daybreak
I heard them laugh I heard them cry
I saw them praying to the sky
I heard the wind howl in the trees
Down there on bended knee
And I see the light
But I know I must be dreaming
Feel the soul, quiet emotion
Sail on by, helpless devotion
If thats how it feels, it better be real
Take care of your woman
Or youll never ever see the light
Take heed of the warnin
Or you know its gonna be too late
Here, there, everywhere
They keep on movin without fear
They look me up, they look me down
They press my body to the ground
But I see the light, see the light its comin shinin
And on a summers day
When thoughts are drifting far away
And life is good and real to see
My world is saved and I am free
But in the night
Still I know I must be dreaming

Im gonna walk, walk dem golden stairs
cause I know my jesus answers all my prayers
Well, well I know when he calls me to my home on high
Ill walk dem golden stairs when I die, when I die
Oh lord you know I can hardly wait
To reach that suite by and by by by
And now I see those per, per, pearly gate

One Day I Know You Will..! ..

One day I know
you will take back my sight
you lent me at my entry
into your world;

Deeply therefore I look into
every creation-
macrocosoms and microcosoms-
and in my mind's endless arena
chisel exact replicas to defy time-

I will ever keep alive hence
of all the delights
through my sight and senses-

Yes.every song of your creation
and every fury of your destruction
will ever reverberate
in every corner of my heart
even after you withdraw
your soldiers of senses!

A summer love

A warm summer's night
nestled cozy in your arms
rocking back and forth
from a wooden swing
hung by an oak tree
we sit
nothing but silence
just lingering thoughts
rafting in the summer's breeze
floating toward stars bright
the feel of your touch
warm breath against my neck
makes my heart beat rapidly
as i lay my head upon your shoulder
and your arm wrapped around me
sweet tender lips full of smiles
speaks of our love so pure and true
when you lay them upon mine
no words are needed
for our love is already known
the look in your eyes
tells all
on this warm summer's night
a summer love is all that remains.

Tell Me What You See

If you let me take your heart i will prove to you,
We will never be apart if i'm part of you.
Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see.
It is no suprise now, what you see is me.
Big and black the clouds may be, time will pass away.
If you put your trust in me i'll make bright your day.
Look into these eyes now, tell me what you see.
Don't you realise now, what you see is me.
Tell me what you see.
Listen to me one more time, how can i get through?
Can't you try to see that i'm trying to get to you?
Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see.
It is no suprise now, what you see is me.
Tell me what you see.
Listen to me one more time, how can i get through?
Can't you try to see that i'm trying to get to you?
Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see.
It is no suprise now, what you see is me.

Back Up

I hear the words you say to me
I see the way you look at me
I know what's on your mind so
Stand up get up back up now
Just stay away

I know the fear you hold inside
I know what's weighing on your mind
There's nothing you can do so
Stand up get up back up

You're reaching out just to be like me
But you've fallen short
Still you're following me
You had the chance to bring me down
But there's nothing left
So just stay away from me

You can't stand to see my face
To know you'll never take my place
There's nothing you can do but
Stand up get up back up now
Just stay away

I feel the hate you push on me
I see the things that you can't see
I know what's on your mind so
Stand up get up back up

It's not the things you say to me
It's not the things that I believe
You try to bring me down
So stand up get up back up now Just stay away
