How deep love really is

While I try
to give a new life to the garden,
I wish at times
that I can stay forever
with you.

Days to get hitched
and repeat
maybe for
a thousand times

and that every day I see
you smile,
the sparkle in your eyes
that really speaks
to my heart
and pray that we
fall more deeply in love

and when one day
I give my last breath
I want to place my hand in yours
and know
how deep love really is.

How can I really understand

How can I have comprehension
of how deep your love lies,
when you fold your hands over me
and pray that my life
are mended and get much better.

How can I really understand
about what our lives together are,
if out of yourself and without force
you make sacrifices for me.

There’s times that I
do not really understand you
and times that I thank Him
and ask that you
never go out of my life.

[Reference: => 'There are three things that are too amazing for me,
four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky,
the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
and the way of a man with a maiden.” Proverbs 30: 18-19]

Carl Sagan

The best way to avoid abuses is for the populace in general to be scientifically literate, to understand the implications of such investigations. In exchange for freedom of inquiry, scientists are obliged to explain their work. If science is considered a closed priesthood, too difficult and arcane for the average person to understand, the dangers of abuse are greater. But if science is a topic of general interest and concern - if both its delights and its social consequences are discussed regularly and competently in the schools, the press, and at the dinner table - we have greatly improved our prospects for learning how the world really is and for improving both it and us.

Learning How To Love

Creeping through your bedroom door
Just after all the lights go out
Feeling the warmth of your body
And the sweetness of your mouth
Set the alarm again for 5 am
Uneasy sleep will soon be following
Creeping back to my own bed again
I will see you in our uneasy morning
Chorus
Learning how to love
Learning how to love
Learning how to love
Learn how to love
Sitting down at breakfast time
A silence always fills the air
Many things that should be said
Are ending in a vacant stare
And they know just what is going on
But make us feel like we are criminals
Our only wish is learning how to love
Just a small word would make us feel its natural
Set the alarm again for 5 am
Uneasy sleep will soon be following
Creeping back to my own bed again
I will see you in our uneasy morning

Learning How To Love You

While all is still in the night
And silence starts its flow
Become or disbelieve me
Left alone with my heart
Im learning how to love you
While waiting on the light
How patience learned to grow
Endeavor could relieve me
Left alone with my heart
I know that I can love you
Love you like you may have never been
Move you more ways than you have seen
To a point in the time where we see so much more
Than the ground that we touch
With each step so unsure
As teardrops cloud the sight
Your eyes may never know
No truth could ever fear me
And left alone with my heart
Im learning how to love you.
Love you like you may have never seen
Move you more ways than you have been
To a point in the time where we see so much more
Than the ground that we touch
With each step so unsure
As teardrops cloud the sight
Your eyes may never know
No truth could ever fear me
And left alone with my heart
Im learning how to love you.

Learning How To Rocknroll

Billy on his way to school
Didnt care too much about the teachers and rules
But he had a plan he said hed try it one day
One he knew would leave them all with nothing to say
He had a friend who said hed teach him how to rock and roll
After school when he was feelin good
Hed go home and do the things that he understood
He would rock in the kitchen and roll in the hall
And billys mother said you got no sense at all
But we know too well that he was
Learning how to rock and roll
cos he would rock in the kitchen roll in the hall
Stand on the tv and climb up the wall
Jive on the ceiling lay on the floor
Crawl through the bathroom and cry out for more
And thats the only way to do it
When youre learning how to rock and roll
Teach me to rock...
Willy turns to the mirror and gives his hair a flip
He would mime to elvis and curl his lip
Ha ha in the kitchen
Ha ha in the hall
Willys mother said you got no sense at all
But we know too well that he was
Learning how to rock and roll
cos he would rock in the kitchen roll in the hall
Stand on the tv and climb up the wall
Jive on the ceiling lay on the floor
Crawl through the bathroom and cry out for more
And thats the only way to do it
When youre learning how to rock and roll
Teach me to rock...
He learnt to rock and roll
And sing the blues
He learnt to head shake
While singing blue suede shoes
He learnt a hand clap
Off the beat
And at the gig he had them out of their seats
Its the only way to do it so long live rock and roll
cos he would rock in the kitchen roll in the hall
Stand on the tv and climb up the wall
Jive on the ceiling lay on the floor
Crawl through the bathroom and cry out for more
And thats the only way to do it
When youre learning how to rock and roll
Teach me to rock...

Learning How To Smile

Five miles outside of Vegas when
we broke down
Threw my keys into that window
and we never looked back

We got all drunk and sloppy on a
Greyhound bus
We passed out cold so
All the losers
They were laughing at us

I will never let them break
your heart
I will never let them break me

We got lost in Phoenix
seemed like such a long time
Seven months of living swimming
On those thin white lines

I did some time
for selling acid to the wrong guy
Life just keeps on getting smaller
And we never ask why

Why there is no perfect place
Yes I know this is true
I'm just learning how to smile
And that's not easy to do

I know there will come a day
When we can leave
And just go running away

(ooh yeah)

we were broke outside of Philly
when the storms came
I was working in New Jersey
Hitching rides in the rain

You was happy talking dirty
at that phone sex place
Life just keeps on getting
weirder for us every day

You say there is no perfect place
I say I know this is true
We are just learning how to smile
And that's not easy to do

We both live for the day
When we can
Run away
Ah baby we can leave
And run away
We can leave this place
And run away
We can leave it all behind
Just like we do everytime

Yes we both live for the day
When we can leave
And just go running away

No I will never let it break
your heart
No I will never let it break me

Five miles outside of Vegas
Five years down the line
We got married in the desert
In the sunshine

I can't handle all the hell
That happens everyday
When you smile and touch my face
You make it all just go away

Yes I know there ain't no
finish line
I know this never ends
We are just learning how to fall
And climb back up again

I know there is nothing perfect
I know there is nothing new
We are just learning
how to live together
me and you

You know I live for the day
When you say

I'm Learning How To Be Who I Want

i love how you let me be me,
and yet you stop me,
before it goes too far,
i love how you have that control,
only because i'm just learning about my control,
i like that i can feel safe,
and open up about the stuff,
that had bad memories,
someday i hope to make good memories,
but in order for me to do so,
i must deal with my past,
deal with the painful memories,
that leave me afraid to try and love,
i'm tired of pushing ppl away,
when they done nothing wrong,
but it the only way i feel safe,
safe where nobody can hurt me.

Learning How To Get It Right

When I started writing,
I was a young eighteen
and I can still remember
the first piece I ever wrote.
To say it was terrible
is an understatement to say the least,
but I am not ashamed I wrote it
no matter how bad it was.
It’s a part of my history now,
the beginning point
for everything I have achieved,
the first step that I took.
It was a bit clumber some
as all first steps usually are,
unless you are a genius
of which I am clearly not.
They say the more you practice,
the better you are going to get.
I have been practicing
for forty years now
and I am still not perfect yet.
Nor do I think I will ever be,
for if I thought I was perfect
I would give up completely.
I am still learning
and I’ll remain that way
until the day I eventually die.
So, if you see mistakes in my work
you’ll understand the reason why,
I am still learning
on how to get it right.

I Know how You Feel

I find it quite amusing,
That those who do not know others...
Can tell anyone how the one unknown,
Spends their time...
In a doing to them unseen or shown.

I like that expression...'I know how you feel.'

Really?
Then you wouldn't mind if I took a sledgehammer,
And hit you over the head with it a few times?
And if you wait here for a second...
I will call around to see if I could rent a Mac Truck,
To knock you down to roll over at least twice.~

People have no clue what others go through.
Even those living together,
Will say they know nothing of what the others do.
And they may be brothers, fathers, mothers and sisters too.

People do not care about anyone else,
Unless it is to the best of their interest.

And those who do show and express a genuine interest...
They are not suspected to be human.
At least not to have suffered through the experience,
Of being one.

Only those that have laid down like a welcome mat,
To have crap and all kinds of dirt rubbed on their backs...
Can say they qualify to raise a high eyebrow.
Or express an opinion no one likes to hear.
And that's the point of view everyone should respect.
Not the one created by someone pretending to know,
What they don't.

And initially, a lot of companies avoid trying to make a really radical new kind of title for a new system, because that would involve learning a new machine and learning how to make the new title at the same time.

The role of the musician is to go from concept to full execution. Put another way, it's to go from understanding the content of something to really learning how to communicate it and make sure it's well-received and lives in somebody else.

Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

Learning

a little brown boy
perhaps aged three
is learning
how to ride his
bike

the father bought
a bike
taller than the boy
but the boy
has passion

breaks his bones
suffers the bruises
just to learn
this new skill

he rides on top of the
bike unable to reach
the brake
and he laughs at all this
not seeking
any help.

there he falls again
on the ground.
