Who Can Stand In The Way

Well oh well I feel Im in decay
John laws is on the air again
Its heavy traffic, jacarandas, eye in the sky and foot on ground
I see a million sand speckd ants in mortal combat hand to hand
And I feel that i
Yes I feel that i
Seem to live this life long distance
Gaze at the things surround me
People rolling in and out
Those circles and tides confound me
And theres just one thing
Yes theres just one thing
Who can stand in the way
When theres a dollar to be made?
I was hanging round off dobroyd point
When the first fleet chain sailed in
Looked into the clearest blue
The scurvy smell, the convicts cry
And we just carried on,
Yes we just carried on
Now choppers strafe the supermarket sky
And people wonder why
Chopping down tons of trees
Got seas of print not a soul can read say
Why do I drown you build brick boxes
One by one now they block my sun
But its metal on metal
Its the dance of tv
If christ were here hed camera check
Hed cry so loud the planes would stop
Hed cry so loud the earth would shake
And men would fall in tinsel town
Theres just one thing
Yes theres just one thing...
Who can stand in the way
When theres a dollar to be made?
Precious moments, precious few
When that dollars more than me and you
Its the joy of forgetting,
Such a joy to forget
But we killed all our firstborn
And we slashed and we burned
And we sold off the paddocks
And we raped and we gouged
On the wings of a six-pack
Will we ever learn?
(moginie/garrett)

Here's A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)

You say you were wrong to ever leave me alone
Now you're sorry, you're lonesome and scared
And you say you'd be happy if you could just come back home
Well here's a quarter, call someone who cares
CHORUS:
Call someone who'll listen and might give a damn
Maybe one of your sorted affairs
But don't you come 'round here handin' me none of your lines
Here's a quarter, call someone who cares
I thought what we had could never turn bad
So your leavin' caught me unaware
But the fact is you've run, girl that can't be undone
So here's a quarter, call someone who cares
REPEAT CHORUS
Yeah here's a quarter, call someone who cares

A Friend

i think sometimes
what we need most of all,
more than money, possessions,
sex, or accolades...
is a friend.

someone to walk beside you,
that you can talk to,
and listen to...
someone that you can
laugh with, cry with, fight with,
be crazy with... and they still
walk beside you.

someone who can see you
for what you are... and they still
walk beside you....

a friend! ... and they say
the only way to find one
is to be one!

Who Can Write A Poem In The Middle Of The Night

WHO CAN WRITE A POEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

Who can write a poem in the middle of the night
When the darkness is still everywhere?
Who can find in the time of deep silence and doubt
Words of happiness and praise to God?

Who can in the lonely hours know
That the day will come with the joy of its light
And the difficulty of its duties?

Who can in this darkness here now
Pray to God
That love and goodness will come to us all
And Kindness be the one word the world most knows?

Someone Who Cares

(alex harvey)
Someone who cares
Someone who dares to love you
Someone who thinks enough of you
To always be willing to share, mmmm
Someone who gives
Someone who lives inside you
Someone wholl be strong beside you
Through all the days that you live, mmmm
Ive made up my mind that youre gonna love me
Ive made in my heart a soft place for you
Ive made up my mind that youre gonna love me
Ive made in my heart a soft place for you
Oh, someone who dreams
Of being in your life tomorrow
And sharing your joys and your sorrow
Helping you see what it means
To be loved, mmmm

Who Can Bear in Old Age The Despair of Friends Sick and Lost?

Who can bear in old age the despair of friends sick and lost?
The endless incapacities and infirmities
That deprive us of each other as we wholly are?
Who can bear in old age the diminishing of worlds we knew
And the loss of hopes we lifetime long carried?
Who can bear in old age all these maladies of our own petty meaninglessness?

Only those who can see in the young
Something of themselves or of their own -
Only those who can find in the new generations
Dream and hope for what is yet to come-
Oh old old souls
Speak of your children and grandchildren shamelessly,
They are the light of the world.

What We Have

A body, a brain, a mind,
and the gift of choice.
All the human senses,
a language, a voice.

A conscience to guide us
in deciding right or wrong.
Feelings to stir emotions,
be them short or long.

A soul to comfort your body,
a spirit to inspire and create,
which also gives you hope
when your life is in a state.

Doors to open
when opportunity knocks.
Someone who can listen
when marooned upon life's rocks.

Balmy summer days,
autumn's palette of colour.
Nature's new growth in spring,
fresh winters to discover.

Blue skies and clouds,
rainbows and showers.
Wind, snow, and sunshine,
trees, plants, shrubs, and flowers.

Who Can Tell All The Moods Of A Single Life And Love?

WHO CAN TELL ALL THE MOODS OF A SINGLE LIFE?

Who can tell all the moods of a single life and love?
Much less of two together?
Who can explain the lonelinesses and the distances
Two can feel with each other?
Or the tendernesses and intimacies
One may know while the other is somewhere else?
Who can explain all the intricacies of anger and pain and joy
When they mix in sudden strange ways?

Our lives are mysteries to us-
So too our relations with those we love-
In all their Beauty there is still something we cannot find and make our own –

Love is a deep thing perhaps the deepest
But too with it there may remain questions-

Why oh holy and close now and why in a second some other distance we never dreamed and are forced against our wish and will to feel?

Who can weigh love?

Light. Lightness. Light-heartedness.
Who can measure their measureless weight?

On the kitchen scales, we balance
weight against weight; but how different
the substances - on the one scale,
iron weights with their iron discipline
maintain like monks and nuns their constancy;

on the other scale, perhaps fine flour,
poured as bakers recommend, from a height
to catch the air between the grains; a foretaste
of that greater levity that yeast will bring;

Lorenzo de’ Medici, praising publicly his tutor,
Marsilio Ficino, said of him, that one thing in him which he loved
was that in his speech, gravity was mixed with levity,
and levity, with gravity;

what then, of our substance? In the lightness
of our being, then how bright the light! And in
the dark and heavy days, what lightness of the light may lurk
in melancholia – a yeast of wisdom yet to act?

And then – there’s love…its golden weightiness
so full of light; and hammered out and spread,
the brighter then…oh, who can measure out
the lightness, brightness, of our joy? What golden scales
of justice, mercy, grace,
may weigh the shining of a shining face?

I want someone…

I want someone who can be there for me when I'm down
Who knows what to say to bring me up
Who's there to pull me up when my self-esteem is low
Who tells me I am worth so much more
Who gives me confidence like no other
Stays so close to my heart
Who believes in me when everyone says I'll fail
Who gives a helping hand even when the task seems impossible
who can give me strength through a simple touch
Will never waver their faith in me
And in that way I will never waver in my faith in me

I want someone who can love me more than I love myself
Who can appreciate me for all my worth
And can see in me what no else can
Someone who can hold me when I'm cold
Who will be there for me even when the world
Decides that I am not the worth the thought
When everybody abandons me
And leaves me on the ground
Trampled like a rose of no value
I want someone who can pick me up
Dust me of, and return me to my valued worth

I just want someone who can care for me
Love me
Cherish me
Value me
And believe in me like no else ever will
And when I'm sad and alone
Can cry tears for me so profound
And lift me up from the ground
And show me how I can bloom
To be a flower like no other
Someone who can make me a better
Man than I am

I want Jesus in my life
Cause he fits this description so well
And in a world filled with a billion others
He loves me more than anyone else does or ever could

Commitment

What I'm looking for is a love that's forever.
Someone who can capture my soul in a heartbeat
And stay for all time.

What I'm praying for is a match made in heaven.
Someone who will worship my body and still put
His heart on the line.

Commitment.
Someone who'll go the distance.
I need somebody with staying power
Who will macke me go weak in the knees.

Commitment.
And everything that goes with it.
I need honor and love in my life.
From somebody who's playing for keeps.

What I'm searching for is a man who'll stand by me.
Who will walk through the fire and be my
Flame in the night.

Oh

I have a dream

I want to write real poetry
But I’m not sure how I should start
I need someone who can teach me
the basics of poetic art.

I do not know if it should rhyme
and meter is a mystery.
I have the will I have the time.
I somebody will please help me.

I have the urge I have to write
I really want to get it right
What makes it poetry or prose?
there is a difference I suppose.

I know there’s different schools of thought
an ongoing controversy.
I’m simply looking for support
to help me with my poetry.

I have the basic writing tools
a pad a pencil and P.C.
I need to learn the basic rules
which turn prose into poetry.

I am willing to study hard
and heed advice that’s offered me.
By any older wiser bard
who’s skilled at writing poetry.

Everything I Need

Weve been through so much
Weve stayed in close touch
Seems like weve always been together
Weve sung the same song
Unchanged for so long
Guess well be singing it forever
Chorus:
When love begins so easily
It feels like it was meant to be
Youre the special lover heaven chose me
And after all is said and done
Weve had ou fights, weve had our fun
And your the only one who really knows me
And everything I need I find in you
Time keeps on going
Love keeps on growing
And all the changes that we go through
Are so revealing, they leave me feeling
Im just so happy that I know you...
(chorus)
Everyone I ever knew
Is looking for a someone who
Can fit into the spaces in their dreams
Dont know where were heading to
But here is me and there is you
For so it seems...
Whatever happens
Well make it happen
Dont have to worry about tomorrow
We have each other
And well discover
Life has its happiness and sorrow...
But well continue come what may
Love grows stronger day by day
As we discover so much more about it
It feels so right it feels so good
It feels the way a true love should
I cant imagine living life without it
cause everything I need I find in you...
Love keeps on growing...

Where Did You Go

Im looking out the window pane
And I hear the sound of pouring rain
But youre not here
Where did you go
I wanna know what made you go away
What went wrong?
Im looking out my window pane
And I hear the sound of pouring rain
Theres no-one here to laugh with me
To make the dark clouds disappear
My love, what went wrong?
Where did you go - there is no answer
I need you now much more than ever
Where did you go - why cant you be with me
Where did you go - we were so tender
Where did you go - why not surrender
Only you can set me free
Im looking out my window pane (oh yes)
And I hear the sound of pouring rain
I think of you, of someone who can
Always count on love so true
And Im here - where are you?
Tell me...
I think of you, of someone who can
Always count on love so true
And Im here - where are you?
Where did you go - there is no answer
I need you now much more than ever
Where did you go - why cant you be with me
Where did you go - we were so tender
Where did you go - why not surrender
Only you can set me free
Where did you go - there is no answer
I need you now much more than ever
Where did you go - why cant you be with me
Where did you go - we were so tender
Where did you go - why not surrender
Only you can set me free

Will you be my friend?

Will you be my friend?
In a gentle manner he asks
Will you be my friend?
Or is that too much of a task?

Many a time when feeling lonely
I long to be loved
Welcomed and made to feel homely

A friend I need
One who can share my joys
Friendship I seek, and not to destroy

A friend I need
Someone not afraid to tell me off
When ever I am wrong
Instead encourage me to be strong

Someone who can
Life my spirits when I am down
Not look upon me with a frown

Will you be my friend?
In a gentle manner he asks
Will you be my friend?
Or is that too much of a task?

‘Why me’ she curiously asks
I’m no beauty behind my mask

And he replies, ’ Because you are so gentle’
Patiently understanding and simple

You exhibit utmost kindness
The title friendship goddess
Is yours, if I am honest with gladness
You display compassion and intelligence
You never judge and there is no pretence
My life with you will make a difference

We rhyme together in towns
And joke around like clowns
When we talk on the phone
I merrily feel not alone
You shine like the sun and are fun
You are always there with support
Continuously making sacrificial efforts

Well then, I am already your friend
She says, ‘unless you want our friendship to end.’

Blood & Fire

I have spent nights with matches and knives
Leaning over ledges only two flights up
Cutting my heart, burning my soul
Nothing left to hold
Nothing left but blood and fire
You have spent nights thinking of me
Missing my arms but you needed to leave
Leaving my cuts, leaving my burns
Hoping Id learn
But blood and fire
Are too much for these restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire theyre calling me
Back to your fold
And I am calling you, calling you
From 10,000 miles away
Wont you whet my fire with your love
Babe
I am looking for someone who can take as much as I give
And give back as much as I need
You know and they still have the will to live ah no
Cause I am intense, I am in need
I am in pain, I am in love
And I feel forsaken you know
Like the things I gave away
And blood and fire
Are too much for these restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire theyre calling me
Back to your fold
And I am calling you, calling you
From 10,000 miles away
Wont you whet my fire with your love
Babe, babe, babe
I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love
You know I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love
I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love
And blood and fire
Are too much for these restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire theyre calling me
Back to your fold
And I am calling you, calling you
From 10,000 miles away
Wont you whet my fire with your love
Babe
Wont you whet my fire with your love
Babe now
Whet my fire with your love

Do It Yourself

Many years ago my dad said, 'honey
Lady luck may never come your way
If it's love you want not only money'
This is what my daddy used to say
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Waitin' around for someone who can help you
Oh, someone who can help you find your way
Then if you think there's no one you can turn to
Well, there's someone just a lookin' glass away
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Wishin' and hopin' for your fortune
Prayin' that you'll see your lucky day
[prayin' that you'll see your lucky day]
If you're lookin' for some inspiration
This is what my daddy used to say
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
[prayin' that you'll see your lucky day]
Do-do-do
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
