I Wish I Knew...

I wish I knew what passion felt like,
To wake up and feel the passion to be happy and to love.
Passion is the eagerness to wake up with the light.
And passion is what fights the dark every night.
I don’t think I have ever known true passion,
But that wont stop me from seeking it like an impossible mission.
To search for the one that will show me that,
True passion is what life’s really about.

The One And Only Immortal

Those who do love Nature are blessed indeed
For all of her friends our Earth Mother does need
The one every life form on Planet Earth does feed
Has been made to suffer due to human greed
The greedy for financial gain her beauty try to destroy
A beauty that is meant for all to enjoy
For their crimes humanity may have to pay
That does seem a sad thing for to have to say
The beauty of Nature is an amazing thing
And her praises one ought to feel happy to sing
The one who will be here long after to nothingness we've gone
The only immortal will be living on
And we who abuse her for our financial greed
Are not very clever and self destructive indeed.

Every Night when Darkness Comes

I

Every night when darkness comes,
when we say prayers together
then I know that your bright light
never fails,

that you daily determine
the destiny of every one
who bend down to you, that stars spray like sparks
going to unknown places

and that you the sun of righteousness
will come at your set time
with bright rays, that you will come down
past all mortality,
that all earthly troubles and worries will disappear;
how do you Lord, let the pain be gone?

II

How do you Lord, let the pain be gone,
two animal children I have lost shortly after each other
and when in the mornings I look outside
there are only two left.

How do you tell others that do not really comprehend
of the bond that a person has,
of the love coming from the heart of a animal,
about the moments of unmentioned pleasure

and now that I am without a wife or children
the remaining two still serves me faithfully,
there is a tight bond
and I pray for you to hold your hand over them

and if you want to take them as well;
I am lost on this world.


III

I am lost on this world,
in the unknown world that waits tomorrow on me,
when my strength begins to wane
before the dark night,

but when the new light appears,
the sun still rises in a new day
(when the sun again shines in all of its glory over me)
in the unknown things waiting on me,

my known yesterdays are included
in bright days, that in late afternoons declines,
it is as if everything that came before is included
in memories and even when lightning bolts fall around me

I find your presence continually,
when shadows fall over me.


IV

When shadows fall over me,
when the world almost decadent
roughly falls into my universe
and shadows sometimes permanently

try to sabotage my best efforts
and everything in my will rises up
I feel pushed away, blunted and used;
but still I remember you

from whom all light comes
and are waiting on a new day,
although I am knocked down and am astonished,
although it continually looks to me like night

you never really leave me isolated,
even when in my dreams I scream and wonder.


V

Even when in my dreams I scream and wonder
why every morning folds around me,
almost endlessly without you,
as if live is destroying me,

trying to get me down
without me being able to keep the pain away,
as if no fatherly hand is helping me,
I still stand astonished

when I see the works of God
in small things around me
where its power without bonds
even unfolds in my own writings

I know that He constantly draws me nearer,
even when the scribes gather.

VI

Even when the scribes gathered,
to send me to hell,
they still wanted to draw near to you with a last prayer
on that determined dark hour.

To confirm that they are accomplishing your will,
as if to say, so says the Lord,
they stood in a circle,
that white plastered men.

At that time I was wondering about people,
who have the audacity to put them in your place
if that Sanhedrin
really did carry out your wishes

or are they the whole time walking in darkness,
do they not know what is written on the ground?


VII

Do they not know what is written on the ground?
Lord I thank you for sharpening me in my growth
even when so-called holy people come with a sentence
that interferes with my vocation.

Although sometimes I feel the pain penetrating
as if its cutting to the bone,
I know that you only mean things to be well for me,
that you and your angels are continually at my side

but ask that you protect me
against the darkness, the evil
that in hordes gathers around me,
that you do not wait

that you keep me on the right way, even when I go astray;
every night when darkness comes.

Be The One

I wonder
Why are we involved
With the seasons
And the living of our own
Let me see if nothings wrong
I just want to be the one
(she) wanted
You still give her all our lives
Let her be son
Who is she buying
See her crawl
Ill just make it out
(we dont see it bleeding)
I want to die with you
(something no ones needing)
I left the other day
But youre never here
You only listen to things you want to save
But the power its ok with you
You knew Id find something else to do
Let me be the one
(we dont see it bleeding)
I wanna fly, I wanna die with you
Something no ones
See its not like they
Are gonna take my faith away
Let me in its ok now
Close the door
Is it really needing
When you find a place
Thats only yours
Just go he beams
Well Ive died for good now
Let me feel it
Let her come---let her run---let her run
(now)
Let me be the one
(we dont see it bleeding)
I cant feel it, I cant see it
(something no ones needing)
I feel dumb

To The One And Only

Oh my dear Lord God I bow to Thee
You're the One who will set me free.
Before the altar in the chamber of my heart
in loving worship of Thee I humbly take part.

To love and serve Thee is the purpose of life
by doing which we can abstain from all strife.
Thou art the light which shineth in the dark
and in everything You've placed Thy mark.

When Thy love and grace have been received
all things worthwhile can then be achieved.
Everything in the world was not made to last
all is subject to decay having once been cast.

Thou art the underlying substance that does sustain all
that infinite existence in which we move, rise and fall.
Yet to so many people You do appear to be very far away
though really speaking You're in everyone's heart to stay.

When our heart is crowded with too many worldly desires
we experience an insatiable thirst from proximity to its fires.
Separation and emptiness are the symptoms of this disease
where we are lost in forgetfulness and unable to appease.

But Thy Name happens to be the only thing of any lasting value
it is by means of Thy Name we come to please and know You.
Because You are closer to us than our very breath
imminent and transcendent You are beyond death.

Linda Let Me Be The One

Midnight boys are outside
Scrapin tears up off the street
Standing guard over the window
Where the lonely linda sleeps
Theres a kid named eddie
Walks like an angel in defeat
The ashes of a romance come
Traces lindas name in a seat
Calls
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you, hey let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
In a room full of contenders
Shadow boxin, eddies strong
Till he drops through a feigned surrender
To the canvas draped in scarves
Stole from lindas bedroom
The night he laid at her feet
And the midnight boys were wasted
Down on king street
He calls out
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you, hey let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
Midnights base is st marys
Midnight boys hide from the rain
Stay with the stolen sisters
Till the streets are dry again
Talking fast cars and chrome parts
Different worlds and strange girls
Empty homes, busted hearts
And kneeling with linda in the dark
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you, hey let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one

The One Unreal

You made me care,
And...
I became aware,
I had been wrong.
For so long,
About you.

You made me see,
And...
Open up my eyes.
I was the one too sleepy
To keep my heart awake
And stay strong.

How could you put up with my nonsense.
When I sat on the fence so indifferent?
And you never mentioned this to me.
Or made me feel the one unreal.

You made me care,
And...
I became aware,
I had been wrong.
For so long,
About you.

You made me see,
And...
Open up my eyes.
I was the one too sleepy
To keep my heart awake
And stay strong.

What Makes You Think Youre The One

Written by lindsey buckingham.
What makes you think youre the one
Who can laugh without cryin?
What makes you think youre the one
Who can live without dyin?
Every little bit
Is there
To see
Every little bit
Of you
And me
What makes you think Im the one
Wholl be there when youre callin?
What makes you think Im the one
Who will catch you when youre fallin?
Every little bit
Is there
To see
Every little bit
Of you
And me
What makes you think Im the one
Who will love you forever?
Everything you do has been done
And this wont last forever
Every little bit
Is there
To see
Every little bit
Of you
And me

If Only They Knew

When you look at me,
What do you see?
An innocent child,
Who barely speaks,
A person with money,
Who carelessly spends,
Someone who has everything and more,
Some see me as spoiled,
Some think I have the perfect life,
If only they knew,
What I was really about,
That I wanted to leave this cold world I entered so long ago,
Why can’t it go back to the way it was?
Back then it was different,
I did have the perfect life,
My mom, my dad, my sisters,
Everything I needed
Not a huge house or new cars,
But a close, happy family,
I was glad just to be part of it,
I thought of myself as lucky,
Sure, I would of loved to have those things,
But not for me,
For my family,
So they can be happy,
So they can live in luxury,
But no,
My family was condemned
To doctors,
Hospitals,
What I didn’t know was my mom was slowly dying,
I hated it
She couldn’t work,
She could only do so much,
The pain she endured,
I can only imagine,
Slowly our family was ripped apart at the seems
I no longer cared,
About anything
The evil they call cancer will never be taken back

Our Life's Greatest Treasure

Met in high school, still together
when college did come.
Graduation day, a joy for us two,
together we decided to be one,
darling, just me and you.

Two years passed and with a
baby girl we were blessed, like
two birds we had started our
loving nest. She brought such
joy to us, so in God we then
put all our trust.

We decided that we needed you
at home, so you became a 'stay at
home Mom.' Such loving care you
poured into out little one and
into our growing home.

Late the following spring, God had
blessed our lives again. A little
brother for our Sara Anne. We were
so happy, so filled with joy, God's gift
to us, a baby boy.

We watched them grow, and so close
they grew, bringing so much love to
me and you. We had such strength
in our little family, there was nothing
we couldn't do, in our hearts, love
would conquer all, this we knew.

The day little Joey turned two, another
blessing, as you gave us the news.
A long nine months, as so many
troubles you had, the day came when
once again you made me a Dad.
But when the doctor gave the news,
it left us broken hearted and sad.

You grew so weak, each breath came
far and few, I prayed to God, 'honey I
knew I couldn't lose you.' I held your hand,
as the children did cling to your side,
you took that last breath, 'honey that
was the moment the biggest part
of me died.'

An infant in my arms, two more standing,
clinging onto my side, the rose petals fell
so softly onto the mound of dirt, I don't
think I have ever felt such a hurt.
Remembering the touch of your hand,
the softness in your voice, alone now I
have to do this, I have no choice.

Each day on my way to work, and to take
the kids to school, we stop and give
a rose to you. We stand by you still
each day, and silently to God we pray.
We miss your tenderness, your hugs
and your sweet kiss.

It is hard day to day, the children and
I, trying to make our way. We see you
in the stars at night, we feel your hugs,
when I tuck them in tight. Their tears still
fall, as in the night your name they still
call. It's just not the same dear, since God
took you home, 'I have never felt
so alone.'

On the weekends to our ocean retreat,
through the mist of the oceans we
hear your voice so sweet. Remembering
the ocean to be your favorite place,
going back there, recapturing your
beautiful face.

Hearing your whipsers in the gentle
waves, saying your last goodbys
as you left us that day. Been a year
now, the pain is still there, but I know
you are at peace, in his loving care. 'Darling,
you gave us nothing but sheer pleasure,
and in Heaven I know, God now holds, our
life's greatest treasure.

No one will ever take your place, the
beauty you posessed will never
be found in any heart, nor on any face.
We know you are here with us each and
every day, without you dear, we
wouldn't make it through the day. I see
you in our children, in every tear that
they cry, rest peacefully now my love,
till we meet in our home that I know
you are preparing for us all, there in
the sky.

Old Timer

He was the best influence
a boy could ever have,
right up there
alongside my dad.
His farm was just across the pasture
from the house I grew up in,
it was over there
that I spent many a day working for and with him.
He taught me so very much
like how to tell right from wrong,
when to be soft and gentle
and when to be brave and strong.
He was part rancher, part farmer
and always a full-time, hard-working, top-hand,
I learned from him to work without complaint
and to ride for the brand.
He showed me how to drive a tractor
long before I could handle a car,
and how to spot a lost calf
hiding at the edge of a field way off far.
We'd talk for hours
while out mending miles of fence,
with a wonderful old-school knowledge
he'd share with me his superlative common sense.
Even though I was young
he treated me fair, just like a grown man,
he told me, always do what's right
and against what's wrong take a firm stand.
Better than most he understood the value
of friendship and loyalty,
so many were the gracious gifts of wisdom
he freely bestowed upon me.
Like how to sit a horse
rope a calf, and milk an ornery old cow,
there's so much more I'd like to tell
but, time and space won't allow.
So here in this little way, I'd just like to say
my hat's off and my heart forever goes out,
to that grand old-timer of my early days
who taught me young, what life is really about.

Reaction To Action

(spoken: check 1, 1, 1)
Alright
Its hard getting through to me
Im truly elusive
I got my own point of view
I am the one of a kind
And I tell you lil girl
Im fascinated by you
Theres something about you
That makes all the difference
Like the night is to day
Well I can get along without you
But I know that within you
Youve got what Im missing
And Ill find a way
To get reaction to action
Hey, say the word that would thrill me
Yeah, I need reaction to action
Just one look that would kill me
You got a way of drawing attention to you
You know you stand out in a crowd
But the way that you play
With any mans affections
Should never be allowed
See I consider myself
The one who will show you
Id go as far as to say
Girl, I aint leaving here without you
But you better understand
Theres only one rule in this game were gonna play
And thats reaction to action
Maybe like a word that would thrill me
I need reaction to action
One look that would kill me
Give me reaction to action
Its getting late Id better make a definite move
Reaction to action
And after that baby, its up to you
I need reaction to action
Just a word that would thrill me
I need reaction to action
You know what Im talking about
Give me some reaction to action
You got a look, you got a way thatll kill me
Reaction to action, reaction to action, action
Baby, dont think about it, just react
Reaction to action
Reaction to action
Reaction to action
Reaction to action
Reaction to action
Reaction to action

Cool It Now

Everybodys saying, seeing things
Without knowing that life brings a change
And theyve been checking all the time
My friends say Im love sick cause i...
All I keep thinking about is her in my arms
(got to see what love is all about)
And I wont be the same until she is mine
And my friends keep telling me to
You got to cool it now
You got to cool it now
Ooooooh watch out
Youre gonna loose control
Cool it now
You got to slow it down
Slow it down...
Youre gonna fall in love
Everyday I walk her home from school
And she tells me how she really feels
And theres no doubt in my mind
That this girl is one of a kind
Cause all I keep thinking about is her in my arms
And I wont feel the same until she is mine
You got to cool it now
You got to cool it now
Ooooooh watch out
Youre gonna loose control
Cool it now
You got to slow it down
Slow it down...
Youre gonna fall in love
All I keep thinking about is her in my arms
(got to see what love is all about)
And Ill never be the same until you are mine
And my friends keep telling me..
When ya got a girl who takes her time
You must slow the pace you cant mess with her mind
If she feels the same shell letcha know
Just prepare yourself or be ready to go
And I hope this message stays in your mind
Cause you almost lost a girl who is right on time
Theres one more thing that ya got to know
Just cool it down and stay in control
You got to cool it now
You got to cool it now
Ooooooh watch out
Youre gonna loose control
Cool it now
You got to slow it down
Slow it down...
Youre gonna fall in love
All I keep thinking about is her in my arms
(got to see what love is all about)
And Ill never be the same until you are mine
And my friends keep telling me..
You got to cool it now
You got to cool it now
Ooooooh watch out
Youre gonna loose control
Cool it now
You got to slow it down
Slow it down...
Youre gonna fall in love
Why you all coming down on me
Tryin to tell me how my life is supposed to be
I know youre only trying to help me out
Tryin to show me what life is really about
But this time Im gonna make it on my own
So why dontcha fellaz just leave me alone
Ronnie, bobby, ricky and mike
If I love the girl who cares who you like
Cool it now
Cool it now
Ooooooh watch out
Gonna lose control
Cool it now
Slow it down
Slow it down...
Youre gonna fall in love

Bebe Le Strange

It's got to be you reading my letter
Not your hired hand
I don't know how to say it no better
I love you and the band

Never heard rockin' like you could
Howling like you can
It gets me thinking of Johnny B. Goode
But you know you ain't no man

When I heard you play I knew your
name should be changed
We're all dog panicked and you are to blame
Everybody ought to call you
bebe le strange
You look so insane
We gave you a name
bebe le strange

I wish I knew what you're really like
A touch so shy and fine
But the way you move with that guitar
Just gives me other signs

Here's my number give me a sign
Call me back if this gets through

Stronger

Love is stronger than hunger and,
Your love is deep inside me;
Seeing is believeing but,
Many are those who crack kernels at thre seashore.

Every night on my bed,
I see you and i feel you;
But nothing from nothing still brings us emptiness!
So do drill my life with gladness.

I am joyful like a 70 year-old elephant,
And i am confident as a white dove on your love;
But true love is stronger than hunger itself.

The One That Got Away

What was your name?
You, who I pined after for so long?
Whose eyes stunned me with light
that could have replaced a hundred suns?
What was your name?
Who kept my heart pace racing
with a longing unfulfilled until
I felt the arms of your embracing?
What was your name?
The one that promised me a love so rich
and rare and everlasting
where we both dreamed of horses laughing?
What was your name?
Who trusted me with secrets
and dark fears while you weren't near?
Who wasted hours with me as if
they were mere pennies
that could easily be regained?
What was your name?
I cant remember...

For The One Who Knows That Road They Chose

The pursuit of dreams,
And not chase things...
Is to grow to know,
The power of one's faith.
And the sacrifice it takes...
To remain true to self.
With a healing done in recovery...
From weeding out those criticisms,
That create heartache.

It isn't easy to reach,
For that which others do not see.
It isn't easy to materialize,
What one visualizes from inside.
Keeping a stiff upper lip.
And the biting of one's tongue...
Often results,
In the doing of what needs to be done...
For the one who knows that road they chose!

For The One Who Would Take Man's Life In His Hands

Tiger Christ unsheathed his sword,
Threw it down, became a lamb.
Swift spat upon the species, but
Took two women to his heart.
Samson who was strong as death
Paid his strength to kiss a slut.
Othello that stiff warrior
Was broken by a woman's heart.
Troy burned for a sea-tax, also for
Possession of a charming whore.
What do all examples show?
What must the finished murderer know?

You cannot sit on bayonets,
Nor can you eat among the dead.
When all are killed, you are alone,
A vacuum comes where hate has fed.
Murder's fruit is silent stone,
The gun increases poverty.
With what do these examples shine?
The soldier turned to girls and wine.
Love is the tact of every good,
The only warmth, the only peace.

"What have I said?" asked Socrates.
"Affirmed extremes, cried yes and no,
Taken all parts, denied myself,
Praised the caress, extolled the blow,
Soldier and lover quite deranged
Until their motions are exchanged.
-What do all examples show?
What can any actor know?
The contradiction in every act,
The infinite task of the human heart."

The One That Got Away

You were the quiet one
Afraid to sleep alone
Heaven knows, I was lonely too
Some things in life a man
Can't learn to live without
One of those things was you
Who the good guys are
Who the bad guys are
Isn't always clear
In this world of separate houses
Someone's always missing someone
Day after day
And year after year
Though you and I are distant
Don't ever think I didn't want you
Or miss you every day
No matter where life takes you
Know that I'll still be waiting patiently
For the day that you've forgiven me
My son
The One That Got Away
It's all of the little things
That add up to a life
'N it's been so hard
Being outside looking in
You had hundreds of first times
I didn't get to see
That will never come again
How do we catch up
Is there just too much
Stolen history
In this world of separate houses
I want you to remember
That you'll always be
Inside of me
Though you and I are distant
Don't ever think I didn't want you
Or miss you every day
No matter where life takes you
Know that I'll still be waiting patiently
For the day that you've forgiven me
My son
The One That Got Away
You're carryin' an anger
that does not belong to you
'N I'm sick and tired of doin' time
For a crime I didn't do
I miss you every day
No matter where life takes you
Know that I'll still be waiting patiently
'Cause I do believe in you and me
And I trust that someday
You'll no longer be
The One That Got Away
