We Can Start All Over Again

Writers: leo sayer, bruce roberts & tom snow
Oo babe, what can I say to you
Change what youre feelin inside?
Oo babe, Ive got to get close to you
Please dont cast me aside
You know I hate to see you lookin so sad
I cant stand to watch this good love go bad
Lets stop and think about the good times that we had
We can start it all (start it all) all over again
And we can have it all (have it all) just a one more time
We can start it all (start it all) all over again, oo, oo, oo, oo
Oo babe, dont look that way at me
You know youre breakin my heart
Oo babe, Im as sorry as I can be
Dont let this tear us apart
Now lets forget about the tears that we cried
Its gone, there aint nothin to hide
Come on baby, why cant we give it one more try?
We can start it all (start it all) all over again
And we can have it all (have it all) just a one more time
We can start it all (start it all) all over again, oo, oo, oo, oo

Just think about it babe
Oo baby, I acted like a fool

Start All Over Again

The way you see me walking on
Thats why Im telling you in song
Theres only one way to get ahead
Youve got to give it up instead
Start all over again
You see me standing on the bridge
I see the sunset in my view
The field looks colourful to me
I know theres more than I can see
We can start all over again
Made it, made it, made it
Made it through the winter time
Made it through the spring
Made it through the summer
And the fall
Thats why Im giving you the time
You always wanted your own mind
The way is up to you and me
And theres horizons yet to see
When we start all over again

(I Will) Start All Over Again

The lights of the city
Look good when you're leaving
You don't even count what you lost
The streets and their madness
Make my heart so sad
They will never be worth what they cost
Take me to the mountain
I want to see the other side
Oh give me one golden day
And I won't care where I've been
Oh let this world slip away
And I'll start all over again
I will start all over again
I'm through with the struggle
And tired of the trouble
It's high time I left it behind
I've walked the mean streets
Just counting my heartbeats
It's easy to lose your mind
I'll break the chains that bind me
For my soul is deep and wide
Oh give me one golden day
And I won't care where I've been
Oh let this world slip away
And I'll start all over again
I will start all over again
As sure as the sun keeps rising on me
I'll find a place where I ought to be
Oh give me one golden day
And I won't care where I've been
Oh let this world slip away
And I'll start all over again
I will start all over again
And I won't care where I've been
Oh let this world slip away
And I'll start all over again
I will start all over again Over again

Start All Over Again

(will jennings/annie roboff)
(track 10 - time 4:52)
The lights of the city
Look good when you're leaving
You don't even count what you lost
The streets and their madness
Make my heart so sad
They will never be worth what they cost
Take me to the mountain
I want to see the other side
Oh give me one golden day
And i won't care where i've been
Oh let this world slip away
And i'll start all over again
I will start all over again
I'm through with the struggle
And tired of the trouble
It's high time i left it behind
I've walked the mean streets
Just counting my heartbeats
It's easy to lose your mind

Oh give me one golden day
And i won't care where i've been

And i'll start all over again
I will start all over again
And i won't care where i've been
Oh let this world slip away
And i'll start all over again
I will start all over againover again

To Start All Over Again

i would like to start all over again
i will not change anything
i only have to add
what i did not have once

it will be someone
not to your liking, it will be someone
whom i can share my life with

it will be someone whom i could care
someone that i could die for
someone who can make me live again
and make me feel complete

i shall hear someone babbling
struggling to talk with me
it can be laughter, it can be a cry.

Why Should I.........?

What is okay with your culture is totally a taboo to mine!
So why should i kiss you in the eyes of the public?

Give ear to me when i speak,
For you have to start all over again when you fall;
And the brook dried up because there was no rain.

When every word falls like a hammer blow

When every word falls like a hammer blow
when meaningless things suddenly gets value,
when at times it feels as if you want to avoid me,
when we struggle to trust each other

like a drowning person I want to cling to you,
at times I want to free myself from pain.
When every word falls like a hammer blow
when meaningless things suddenly gets value,

I want to hold on to our love
and when you are in my arms again I want to know
that you love me past all kinds of things
and even if at times we laugh, cry or bungle things,
when every word falls like a hammer blow.

Sonnet XL: Severed Selves

Two separate divided silences,
Which, brought together, would find loving voice;
Two glances which together would rejoice
In love, now lost like stars beyond dark trees;
Two hands apart whose touch alone gives ease;
Two bosoms which, heart-shrined with mutual flame,
Would, meeting in one clasp, be made the same;
Two souls, the shores wave-mocked of sundering seas:—
Such are we now. Ah! may our hope forecast
Indeed one hour again, when on this stream
Of darkened love once more the light shall gleam?—
An hour how slow to come, how quickly past,—
Which blooms and fades, and only leaves at last,
Faint as shed flowers, the attenuated dream.

Patrick White

Even When Life Sometimes Seems Like A Black Hole

for Rebekah Genevieve-Dolorese Garland

Even when life sometimes seems like a black hole,
a dark furnace full of the ashes of burnt roses,
it shapes the galaxies into sunflowers and starfish
and it's whirling with stars like a Sufi in rapture.
All my life I've tried so hard not to be afraid of my joy
and at home with my grief like a comfortable chair
that was beginning to take on the same airs as my body.
A holy war of one, carrying the true cross of the sixties
I thought was worth fighting for even long after
I realized I was doomed to dancing to the music
for the rest of the duration. And it's been as true
as Jim Morrison living the afterlife of Arthur Rimbaud
in deserts so desolate even the stars were shy of the darkness.

And I have wept bitterly as the moon went down
like a toxic goat skull into the only wishing well
for light years around, and it seemed, and it's
still dangerous to remember because time doesn't blunt all knives,
I was witnessing an ideological madness, that had
mineralized all the best ideals into fossils, froth
like rabies at its own hydrophobic reflection.
Biting at its own wounds in vengeance upon itself
for the way the water tasted polluted and there was acid rain
in the wavelengths of its tears more venomous than a recluse spider.

I saw how people brought armfuls of poppies and wheat
to lay down on the stairs of the temple in tribute and love
like a sacrifice from the heart they gentled down
upon the grave of a loved one that had died too young
and hoped would return the blood they were missing
as a sign that the roses were mending their severed petals
like eyelids being stitched back by the very thorn
that had made them bleed in the first place.
In a schizzy world, whatever you sacrifice like a lapwing
sooner or later, because everything tends toward its opposite
like twins that weren't anymore separated at birth
than the first and last crescents of the moon,
engenders in the nest of cosmic eggs it's dying to protect
farce and desecration that tar and feather it like an eclipse.

But every once in awhile that comes as often as now,
you meet someone inconceivably shining
in her solitude like light through a mysterious jewel
into one of the sacred weeping pools of the mindstream
and the moon silvers your heart like a sword
you were about to fall upon to save your face the trouble
and you take the hilt and the blade in both your hands
like an autumn equinox that's just bumped into spring
wandering off the beaten path to tend her lunar garden
and you lay it on the waters because choice isn't an option
like the flightfeather of the other wing of the bird
that can't take the measure of the immeasurable wingspan
of these event horizons, transits, zeniths and thresholds
I'm crossing with you like Leo and Virgo
across a heartscape of enlightened taboos
that have been singing to me all these years from a dark wood
like a lucid wavelength hidden in the ore of a particle
that only seemed so when you looked at it from afar,

that drew the sword out of the stone, the star
out of the darkness, the waterlily out of the marsh,
the heart of someone like you out of the nightsky
like a meteor with a panspermic rosary of life at its core
falling on the Fertile Crescent of a habitable planet,
or a whole new universe, with a punk version
of the Garden of Eden where the birds are all listening
to the Ramones, and Eve is raving with Adam in a mosh pit
teeming with infinite permutations and combinations
of love and life, of colour, poetry, light, energy, joy and devotion,
as if we'd both disembarked from these empty lifeboats of the heart
on the shores of this thriving island of stars
where the Milky Way meets the ocean
and all the constellations that travelled this Road of Ghosts
like the long, dark, strange radiant trip it's been
wash the deathmasks off their faces like old myths of origin
from the starcharts of our comets and scars
that have me smiling at you in wonder like this
as if my third eye had just shed its last telescope like a cataract
and I were the mesmerized gaping witness
to the first moonrise of an avatar of dark bliss
studded with the eyes of Isis raising new pyramids
in a desert of stars, as light as feathers, as light
as the crucibles, chrysales and cocoons of the nebulae giving birth
to these poems that break into butterflies of light,
fireflies and dragons that roar like supernovas
across the firmament, waking the valley up
to the morning of a whole new creation
as I firewalk along these oceanic shores with you
like two constellations when their myriad plinths and petals open
and one flower blooms like a bird with two wings
and sings because this universe isn't the shape of an hourglass
with dry oases and creekbeds dreaming
of solar flares behind the mystic veils
of flashfloods of the heart long over overdue,
but in every illuminated detail of the form you've taken
to enter my life, my love, my art, is a perfect likeness of you
that I am created again and again in the image of,
standing in the doorway of this stargate to love
without your metaphors on, so that after all these light years
of looking for you like a star through the eye of a needle
that felt it had seen enough to know when to turn around and go
a firefly like you out of the midnight blue
suddenly comes into view and ignites the air around me like the aura
of a inflammable passion without a fire extinquisher
to put it out because, at long last, as it is above so it is below.

And whether you drink it long and slow, or deep and fast,
or sip like a humming bird from your own skull
there's an oasis at the bottom of the hourglass
that's greening the sands like the grail of a woman
passing it to you like the love potion
of a water sylph of practising astronomical witchcraft,
standing by her well like Circe on her island on the moon
turning a man like a vapour of longing in a desiccated wasteland
into the full-blooded ocean of the black rose she holds
like the sidereal high tide of my life and my love in her hand
as the birds are singing in the roots of dark matter
like the loveletters of a punk band to the psychedelic sixties
and all the trippy, heavy metal flying fish
are swimming like cults of urgent stars
through the thorns and the crowns of the blossoming locust trees.

When Its Cold Id Like To Die

Where were you when I was lonesome
Locked away in this freezing cold
Someone flying, only stolen,
I cant tell, this nights so old,
I dont wanna swim the ocean,
I dont wanna fight the tide,
I dont wanna swim forever,
When its cold Id like to die.
What was that, my sweet sweet nothing
I cant hear you throught the fog
If I holler let me go
If I falter let me know
I dont wanna swim the ocean,
I dont wanna fight the tide,
I dont wanna swim forever,
When its cold Id like to die.
I dont wanna swim forever,
I dont wanna fight the tide,
I dont wanna swim the ocean,
When its cold Id like to die.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Sonnet 36 - When we met first and loved, I did not build

XXXVI

When we met first and loved, I did not build
Upon the event with marble. Could it mean
To last, a love set pendulous between
Sorrow and sorrow? Nay, I rather thrilled,
Distrusting every light that seemed to gild
The onward path, and feared to overlean
A finger even. And, though I have grown serene
And strong since then, I think that God has willed
A still renewable fear . . . O love, O troth . . .
Lest these enclasped hands should never hold,
This mutual kiss drop down between us both
As an unowned thing, once the lips being cold.
And Love, be false! if he, to keep one oath,
Must lose one joy, by his life's star foretold.

A Marvellous Poem

A marvellous poem,
Written with great skill!
But where is my lover who left me last night?
For the imaginary style of my muse is highly rich for her;
But i will feel obliged to see her once again in my life.

Tastefully, full, fully, taste, tasteful, eat, east, at, as, tea, ate;
Butm why can't she call? ! !
Tastefully, state, sate, late, yes, say, lay, sea, seat, fall, falls;
But, who have seen her?
Tastefully, tall, stay, fat, fell, yell, tell, sell, set, sat, fast;
But, what made her leave?
Tastefully, feast, yeast, tease, ease, lease, let, last, feat, yet;
But i hope to see her once again in my life,
And like the muse of love in the land of beautiful flowers.

When You treat Me like that

My sweet heart cried out her heart
She said I break her heart
When I treat her like that
She said I made her sad when she caught me on the act
I never knew I could break a heart
Not that of my sweet heart
Now she is parking out of my house.
What can a man do to mend
A broken heart?
I am now alone, all alone in my empty
House, and my empty heart
Or should i say, my broken heart.
It is difficult, very difficult to live
Without her in my heart and my house
These days I drink, day in, day out
I try to forget my sweet heart,
But when I'm sober, there she is, right here in my heart
Her last words to me, 'You break my heart when you treat me lile that, I cant live like that'
She parked and left my house
Now here I am drinking my life out
Here I am crying my heart out.
my sweet heart has broken my heart
When she treat me like that.

Can't Stop Loving You

I watch the leaves falling to the ground
I'm walking up and down
The streets of my hometown
You're here with me like it used to be
I look around and then I'm on my own again
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop wanting you
Can't stop now that you
Made me part of you
I've heard some people say
I'm dreaming my life away
But what else can I do
Can't stop loving you
Your face I see in my memory
I close my eyes and then
I start to live again
You're holding me like it used to be
I open my eyes and then
I'm on my own again
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop wanting you
Can't stop now that you
Made me part of you
I've heard some people say
I'm dreaming my life away
But what else can I do
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop wanting you
Can't stop feeling blue
Can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
Oh I can't I can't I can't.......

Found A Cure

I searched all over
Could not find
Someone to hold
Some peace of mind
Yesterday is gone
Nothing else to do
But let it go
Before I lose
All of my hopes
And my dreams
For something that aint real
Things aint always as they seem
Pre chorus
cause theres sunshine
After rain
And after the night comes morning
And in the spring the flowers bloom again
When Im feeling down
Like theres no way out
I know the love I have inside will make it alright
Chorus
And when it feels like Im going crazy
When it feels like Im going insane
When it feels like Im going crazy
Found a cure
To get me through another day
Found a cure
To get me through another day
How many times before have you
Been left alone and you feel confused
Do you have the strength to keep trying
When the walls just keep on closing in
But you got everything that you need
Inside your heart
If you just believe
Things aint always as they seem
Pre chorus
Chorus

When You're Looking Like That (Single Remix)

She's a five foot ten
A catsuit and Bambi eyes
Everybody who's staring
Wouldn't believe that this girl was mine
I should have known I was wrong
When I left her for a life in pity
But they say you never miss the water until it's gone

Guess I failed to love you
And you're taking it out tonight

Chorus
How am I supposed to leave you now
When you're looking like that
I can't believe what I just gave away
Now I can't take it back
I don't wanna get lost
I don't wanna live my life without you
How am I supposed to leave you now
When you're looking like that

She's all dressed up
For glamour and rock and roll
Wanna squeeze her real tight
Get out of this place
If onyl I can take control
But she's out of my life forever
And just a week ago she laid next to me

It's so ironic how
I had to lose just to see

That I failed to love you
And you're taking it out tonight

Chorus

I don't wanna forget you
I don't even wanna try
How am I supposed to walk on by
When you're looking like that

How am I supposed to leave you
I can't believe what I just gave away
Oh no

When You're Looking Like That

She's a 5 foot 10 in catsuit
and bambi eyes
Everybody who's staring wouldn't
believe that this girl was mine

I should have known I was wrong
When I left her for a life in pity but
they say you you never miss
the water until it's gone (yeah)

Guess I failed to love you
And you're taking it out tonight

How am I supposed to leave you now
When you're looking like that
I can't believe what I just gave away
Now I can't take it back
I don't wanna get lost
I don't wanna live my life without you
Am I supposed to leave you now
When you're looking like that

She's all dressed up for glamour and
rock and roll
Wanna squeeze her real tight
Get out of this place
If only I could take control

But she's out of my reach forever
And just a week ago she lied
next to me
It's so ironic how I had to lose
Just to see
That I failed to love you
And you're taking it out tonight

(Chorus)

I don't wanna forget you
I don't even wanna try
How am I supposed to walk on by
When you're looking like that

How am I supposed to leave you
I can't believe what I just gave away
'Cause I can't take it back

Fictional

everything i write comes back to me
like they are real
in flesh and blood and friends write
how come
how is it that we are there in your poems
when they are supposedly
some works of a writer
imaginary and fictional

i have no answer

i write about love and broken hearts
and another friend
emails if i am alright
is there anything she can do to help?

but i say again

this is not me this has nothing to do with me
this is fiction

and she does not believe me
she says,
there you are trying to lie again
when blood runs surging like some pulse
of a dying man wanting to be alive
in your poetry,

i have no answer

the poems are works of fiction
it is not me it is about him and her and them

she shrugs off her shoulders
and reads again about the old church where
she once knelt and prayed

there was this girl who fell in love
and whose heart was
beautifully torn to pieces

she says she is her
the poem is true

and there was this boy
who was with her praying
who, when he became a man
broke her heart

she says it is you it is you
the poem is true,

the poems are true
who will ever believe me now?

i have always lied all along
count it from the first poem
when i said about

it and i said it was
it is

all about nothing and
it will always be about nothing

but fiction, nothing personal, but it can be also painful and lingering.....

Tomorrow may be down again [may be down again]
Dont dial my number [oh, lord]
