I've Always Thought

I've always thought a shared vision was best,
the tree, doubly witnessed, sweeter in the fruit,
the star seen rising over the hill by two,
exponentially enhanced in its shining
because it binds more than itself and another
in the herb of its light, because
nothing exists except as the sum of the eyes that have seen it
either side of the mirror, and two watching
in love or friendship
realize the world as a solitary river
with an infinite number of confluent banks
unravelling like snakes in every direction,
none flowing the wrong way, all,
the vivid wavelength of an ancient pulse
that grows a heart like a door in a tree,
a lighthouse in the dark
or the moon on the breast of a wave.
Look at a shoelace or a chromosome
or the wings of a thermalling hawk
to see what I mean:
one and together make three,
and three makes everything a shape of space.
I and you are only two, a mere reflection.
But when you look upon something with love,
one glance is enough to show you
all the rivers and trees and valleys of earth,
all the flowers and mountains and birds,
all the fingertips and bells and tides and tears,
all the planets clustered like cherries
that laboured to make your face
the mould and model of their own,
right down to the urns of the stars
that marrowed the gold of your bones
out of the ashes of their dead, all there
from the very beginning of all
when God said let there be light
and there was only light and God
until the light said
let there be love instead
let there be love instead
let there be love instead
and the dark was filled with eyes.

I loved to read, but I always thought that the dream was too far away. The person who had written the book was a god, it wasn't a person.

I always thought that Bill Murray was one of the great actors that I've worked with. And I've worked with all kinds of people who are known primarily for their dramatic work.

Albert Finney

Well, I've always thought that my career was in England, really. I used to do more in the theatre, and I felt that I should be there. It's not far is it? It's amazing the way that special FX have taken a quantum leap in what they're capable of doing.

I Always Remember That Movie

it was about the story of a murder
of a man by a very ordinary, naive, uneducated woman
scorned, she loved him with all her life until she noticed
that slowly she was betrayed by him
leaving her all too empty
and starkly naked
against the
world,
and so she murdered him and buried him under
the champaca tree which roots ate everything
of him
that gave it the white bloom
the perfumed scent of love spreading in the air
on her lonely nights

she is never caught and the people are happy that he is gone away
never to be seen never to be heard again

Was That What It Was?

(tennant/lowe)
----------------
Think again - remember what we said
Promises - how we both forget
Even now I see it in your eyes
When and why, and where was paradise?
Somethings been and gone
When all is said and done; we were wrong
Was that what it was?
Was that what it was?
Think again - remember what you said
Youd never leave - if you did I wouldnt care
I never dared to ring you up and ask you why
Too proud to beg or hear you cry
Somethings been and gone
When all is said and done; we were wrong
Was that what it was?
Was that what it was?
I dont need any more in my life
Did you need something more in your life?
Was that what it was?
Was - that - what it was?
Somethings been and gone
When all is said and done; we were wrong
Was that what it was?
Was that what it was?

A Ballad of a Rock 'n Roll Dreamer

I always thought that Debbie Harry
Was the sort of girl I'd like to marry,
But she kept me Hanging on the Telephone
And now I spend my nights alone,

So I think I'll ring up Elkie Brooks
(Fantastic voice, amazing looks)
Together we'll drink Lilac Wine
And then I'll persuade her to be mine.

I'm just a guy with stars in his eyes
And dreams he'll never realize
Like a lot of other blokes I know
Who listen to too much radio.

Of course, I'd like to sleep with Madonna,
Provided, I guess, she'd do me the honour,
'Cos although she's just a Material Girl
She sets my emotions in a whirl,

And don't let's forget cute Chrissie Hynde
(I'd give her a kiss if she didn't mind)
'Cos although I admit I'm an old Pretender
I wouldn't want to go and offend her.

Is there no end to my foolish dreams?
(Fame's not as easy as it seems)
I'll have to settle for something less
And then I'll find true happiness! !

Real Life

I wish that life was like it is in the movies
┬┤cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark lonely road
At the end he┬┤s got a smile on his face

But when they threw me out to lions
Noone saved me as I fell from your grace
And noone wrote me new lines
For what I said wrong
What I did wrong I could not erase

This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain
That much I┬┤m sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside
That I can┬┤t hide

I wish that I could be a white knight in armour
With an army just to bring you back home
But I┬┤ll admit I┬┤m scared of dialing your number
Someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can┬┤t it be like it is in TV
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me

This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain
That much I┬┤m sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside
I can┬┤t hide

This is real life
This is real love
These are real wounds I┬┤m bleeding from
And I realize this is real

I always thought that our love
Was a story book tale
God knows that I┬┤d never dream
In the end it could fail

┬┤cause this is real life
This is real love
This is real pain
That much I┬┤m sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside
That I can┬┤t hide

This is real life
This is real love
These are real wounds I┬┤m bleeding from
And I realize this is real

Dialogue Part I

Terry: Are you optimistic 'bout the way that things are going?
Pete: No, I never ever think of it at all.
Terry: Don't you ever worry when you see what's going down?
Pete: Well, I try to mind my business, that is, no business at all.
Terry: When it's time to function as a feeling human being, will your Bachelor
of Arts help you get by?
Pete: I hope to study further, a few more years or so.
I also hope to keep a steady high.
Terry: Will you try to change things, use the power that you have,
The power of a million new ideas?

Terry: Don't you see starvation in the city where you live,
all the needless hunger, all the needless pain?
Pete: I haven't been there lately, the country is so fine,
but my neighbors don't seem hungry 'cause they haven't got the time,
Haven't got the time.
Terry: Thank you for the talk, you know you really eased my mind,
I was troubled by the shapes of things to come.
Pete: Well, if you had my outlook, your feelings would be numb,
You'd always think that ev'rything was fine.
Ev'ry thing is fine.
We can make it better (x3) Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
We can change the world now (x3)
We can save the children (x3)
We can make it happen (x3)

A Memory From 85

I've always thought that Gaelic Football was a grand and a sporting game
But after witnessing a match between Rockchapel and Kiskeam
Played in the Gaelic Playing Field half a mile from Knocknagree
The uglier side of Gaelic Football was all brought home to me.

'Twas Duhallow B league final on an evening in July
And with little to enthuse about for a neutral such as I
A scrappy game of football and the language it was crude
And both sets of supporters were mouthing loud and rude

And I watched on in silence and I could not feel amused
When a linesman by an old Rockchapel mentor was abused
And one could feel the tension rising and things were boiling to a brawl
And 'twould not be a night for sportsmanship or classical football.

And worse was to come later and an ugly sight to see
A young Rockchapel player assaulting the referee
And when he received his marching orders and refused to leave the field
The ref to intimidation rightly refused to yield.

The ref blew the final whistle with Kiskeam to the fore
They had won a tarnished victory by a mere five points to four
In a brutal game of football they'd survived a gruelling test
But at kicking and at mouthing they had come out second best.

'Twas a sad night for Gaelic Football and Duhallow's night of shame
And I'm not pardoning Kiskeam they must partly share the blame
But for a cup and set of medals and with little else at stake
For their attitude and thuggery Rockchapel took the cake.

The ref's motor van was interfered with and a door lock it got broke
By a wild man from Rockchapel a half crazed gray haired bloke
And this rowdy behaviour over a game of ball
It's no wonder I felt sickened fairly sickened by it all.

I've always thought that Gaelic football did not have an ugly side
That the players and spectators on their native game took pride
But now I know quite different and I see things differently
Since that Duhallow local derby game that was played in Knocknagree.

I Thought That Was Understood

Make the effort and do your part.
Show you've taken 'some' initiative,
Right from the start.
Fear not the experience of it!

You pray!
And with 'faith' you say...
'Let God lead!
He doesn't need to have others,
In His way.
God is there.
Let Him deliver you,
To where you need to be.'

Instead...
Like so many seen,
You are often observed dragging hopelessly...
On scraped and bruised knees.
As if God adores the agony.

~And all that is required from these folks,
Is just to ask.
I thought that was understood? ~

Thought That It Was You

(morten harket / ole sverre olsen)
I thought that it was you
The things you saw me do
They were true
Little did I know
You found me in your joy
And there was i, a little boy
My shadows theyre not new
My souls split in two
Lord, I thought that it was you
This christmas snow that falls
Gives silence to us all, amen, amen
You know my deepest sin
Youve seen me deep within
So fill me now like wind
And let the miracle begin
Theres a river and you know
Theres a place we used to go
Thats where I throw our ashes now
I must have walked into a cave
Among these things that you must save
And there I touched the grave
You know my deepest sin
Youve seen me deep within
But fill me now like wind
And let the miracle begin
You know my deepest sin
Youve seen me deep within
But fill me now like wind
And let the miracle begin
Sometimes I felt so sure
When I opened up your doors
That thered been no one there before
You know my deepest sin
Youve seen me deep within
But fly, fly higher from it
Just look into my eyes
You know my deepest sin
Youve seen me deep within
But fill me now like wind
And let the miracle begin
And the secrets that you say

I Thought That We Were Still In Love

(liz vidal/tom snow)
Last night while we were talking the way that old friends do
I suddenly got lost in my yesterdays with you
I told you that in my heart you would always be the one
That Id lie waking in the dark, pray that you will come
But I didnt mean to say that
Somehow it just slipped out
I swear that I would take it back
If I could right now
All I ask is you believe
Id forgotten where I was
With you there so close to me
I thought that we were still in love
Oh I knew just what Id done when you stood up so fast
And say the friends that wed become cant hold on to the past
You said its been a long long time since love came to an end
If I hadnt learned to draw the line, its useless to pretend
But I didnt mean to say that
Somehow it just slipped out
I swear that I would take it back
If I could right now
All I ask is you believe
Id forgotten where I was
With you there so close to me
I thought that we were still in love
I dont think I could take goodbye, that much is still the truth
Wont you forgive me just for one night, its what a friend would do
coz I didnt mean to say that
Somehow it just slipped out
I swear that I would take it back
If I could right now
All I ask is you believe
Id forgotten where I was
With you there so close to me
I thought that we were still in love
Still in love
I thought that we were still in love

Every Insight, The Big Bang, And The Thought That Follows, A Universe

Every insight, the Big Bang, and the thought that follows, a universe.
Every image that flashes across the moonscape like a silhouette
in reverse of the dark matter and starmud that surrounds it,
a black swan among the white when there's snow on the river.
Worlds bubbling out of the mouth of a fish through a hole in the ice
that looks like the third eye of a glacier taking a long, hard look
at whether it was worth opening all those lakes
and then filling them like eyes with the runoff of its own tears
as it disappears into a more fertile approach to letting go of itself.

I could always see a human shape hidden in the landscape
and I wanted to free it so I scraped and gouged
and dug my way into it like a dog unearthing the fossil
of a distant ancestor that ran with the wolves.
Even now when their ghosts howl it's a sad ballad
of the lyrical hills going mad by themselves
and sometimes it breaks my heart like water
in the cleft of a pseudomorphic rock to write picture-music
in striated cuneiform on the cliff faces to sing to themselves
like a lost people with more legend than life in its veins.

I can take a single thread and weave it into a flying carpet.
I can take a string theory and make it resonate with membranes
that occasionally break their eardrums like water from a womb.
There are protocols of the imagination that have been imposed
by iconic means like straitjackets fitted to the inside of your psyche.
Cuckoos in your nest, memes in your mind,
nudging your cosmic eggs out to smash on the rocks below
like the stillborn of the sun. Embryos and fractals,
astronomical forensics sweeping the night sky for fetal stars,
hidden paradigms ferreted out like secrets
that will bloom each in their own good time
like the mysteries of life unravelling
the sequel of a waterclock that keeps on outliving itself
by transcending its own emptiness by pouring itself out
like a serpent that's always shedding its own skin
or a zodiac confabulating a false dawn
of mythically deflated metaphors, red giants
burnt out into black dwarfs and sink holes
where the stars plunge like butterflies into
the gaping maw of the dragon that consumes them like krill,
knowing its destiny, too, is just a provisional scaffolding of quicksand.

Yes, but how many make it all the way through
like wild salmon responding to the death call
of the spawning ground on the far side of the white hole
when the hourglass gets turned around like a fountain
instead of leaking out of a mortal wound in the side of the universe?
The morphology of knowledge is the history of shapeshifters.
Cosmology is an aesthetic expression of enculturated preferences.
Zero among the Hindus the form of the abundance of their emptiness.
Among the Greeks, a political exile. And for a Westerner
far sighted enough to see in aerial perspective,
the bluing of a way of life that's always over the next hill.
Sight is a kind of love I once read on a poster the sixties.
So astronomy for poets. And poets for astronomy.
Observatories on forbidden mountain tops
opening their eyes like blind prophets to the visions
engendered by a seven year eclipse of their visuals.
Who hasn't stepped out of their own well lit doorway
and walked up to the high field on a cold winter night
and watched their breath mingle with the Milky Way
like a tributary of a river on intimate terms with the mindstream
we're all flowing into like red-tailed hawks
riding our own thermals for the sheer joy of it
down the helical stairwells of our own polished bannisters of dna.

Twenty years a Druid in a vatic college learning
to speak to trees in the demotic of their own alphabet,
poetry isn't the calling of a clown or a gleeman
amusing the whimsical caprice of the king's court,
it's a summons to risk your life exploring the mystery
of every facet of what you're doing here turning jewels
like stars in the translucency of your own light
reflected in a brainstorm of parabolic mirrors that bloom at night.
Haul yourself up out of your tidal pool of awareness
into the rarefied bliss of a whole new medium that exceeds
the planetary boundary stones of the space time continuum
you've been so far, by devoting your disobedience
by bringing back enlightened serpent fire
from the hearths and the middens in the starfields
of the gods who first domesticated it like a selective ordeal of birth
in the imagination of a hungry human thief enough
to root a new kind of lightning in the earth that bears
all the birthmarks of the compassionate fruits of insight
into the nature of a mind that embodies all this
as if one moment the crescents of the moon were scars on its eyes
and the next, the talons of an owl flying out of the abyss in the grip
of a nocturnal imagination that's as wise as it is dangerous.

All my thoughts have fingertips. Blood your abstractions.
Lavish your mindstream on the available dimensions of the future
as if what you wanted to achieve were already behind you
like a star in pursuit of an earthly excellence.
Humanize the uninhabitable as if it were just
another room in a spatially enchanted palace
you haven't finished yet like Thomas Jefferson.
If you look for the cure in the heart of the disease,
by corollary, look for the disease in the heart of the cure
like the lesser vehicle in a pathology of grails.
Safer to drink from your own skull to an eclipse
that patched the eye of the moon with the crossbones
of its colours, than sip rainbows from the goblets
of lilaceous irises blooming like an effulgent halo
around the pupil of a black hole on a starless night
anticipating a cadaverous moonrise
like the dark beginning of death breaking into
the unimaginable radiance of another side to all this
that makes the light seem a mere carbon copy
of the shining that can be emanated by an enlightened mind
that never hesitates to contaminate the purity
of its numinous ignorance for the sake
of opening the gate like an exile to a secret garden
everybody must enter at the crossroads of a threshold
without the screening myth of a backdoor to duck out of.

I Thought I Was Going To Lose You

I thought that I was going to lose you
Just for a moment you looked like slipping away
And my only thought was to come with you
There was no other reason to stay
Now Im sinking in a river of happy returns
Though Im tired I can do nothing but sigh
For the greatest relief Im so thankful
As I gaze at your coming-back smile
Lord, I thought I was going to lose you
Yes, I thought I was going to lose you

I Thought That the Heart...

I thought that the heart made of stone,
That it’s fully empty and dead:
Though fire in it had been thrown,
It’s not damaged or just upset.

And that’s right: it was not tormented,
If – painful, then only a bit,
But, yet, it is better to end it,
Put out, while you can do it

The heart is in darkness entire,
I’ve known: the victory’s mine –
At last, we extinguished the fire…
And, yet, in a smoke I die.

I will always be that girl

I will always be the girl who laughs at yesterdays jokes.
Who prances around and never gloats.
The one girl you never see cry.
Cuz another girl stole her guy.
The one girl who is full of cheer.
That one girl who may seem alittle weird.
I will always be remembered as the girl who smiled.
Whos temper was untamed and hair flew wild.
Because that girl will never cry.
The one whos smile will never die.
I will always be that girl.
Who smiles in her perfect world.

Id Like To Have That One Back

Heard somebody speak her name
They said she was still lookin fine
I could feel that same old flame
I once felt when she was mine
Always thought that I was missin somethin
But I found out much too late
Therell never be another who loved me that way
Chorus:
Id like to have that one back
Ive never known someone so true
And a love thats pure and sweet
Is what a man should never lose
And if my lips had said Im sorry
She might have stopped right in her tracks
Now I find my poor heart saying
Id like to have that one back
I can almost see her standin there
Tears rollin down her face
As she packed away her memories
In that old worn out suit case
If Id only known then what I know now
Id never open that door
Oh they just dont make hearts like hers any more
Chorus
I wouldnt here my poor heart sayin
Id like to have that one back
I wouldnt here my poor heart sayin
Id like to have that one back

I Always Thought Id See You Again

Written by: tim james, steven mcclintock, phil coleman and george tobin
No, Im not making that promise again
Nothing can change my mind
Nothing at all
cause love has a way of comin undone
till Im all alone with my heart
And here Ill stay
And I always thought Id see you again
Oh how it hurts, every time youve crossed my heart since then
Gonna give it all it takes
To hold what might have been,
But I always thought Id see you again
Now theres no reason to run for the phone
No need to hold my breath
Hopin its you
Each time I see someone we used to know
Or go some place we used to go
Its not the same
cause I always thought Id see you again
oh how it hurts every time
Youve crossed my heart since then
Gonna give up all it takes
To hold what might have been cause I always thought Id see you again
Love doesnt come when you need love
Its not always there when you fall
Try as you may, you got nothin to say
Nothing at all
I always thought Id see you again
Oh how it hurts every time
Youve crossed my heart again
Gotta give it all it takes
To hold what might have been
Cause I always thought Id see you again
Cause I always thought Id see you again
Again
Again
