Quotes about At the beating of a drum

Emily Dickinson

I felt a Funeral, in my Brain

I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,
And Mourners to and fro
Kept treading — treading — till it seemed
That Sense was breaking through —

And when they all were seated,
A Service, like a Drum
Kept beatingbeating — till I thought
My Mind was going numb —

And then I heard them lift a Box
And creak across my Soul
With those same Boots of Lead, again,
Then Space — began to toll,

As all the Heavens were a Bell,
And Being, but an Ear,
And I, and Silence, some strange Race
Wrecked, solitary, here —

Hold On

As I stepped to the edge on the shadow of a doubt
With my conscience beating
Like the pulse of a drum that hammers on and on
Until I reach the break of day
When the sun beats down on the halfway house
Has my conscience beating
The sound in my ear
The will to persevere
As I reach the break of day

When you lost all hope and excuses
And the cheapskates and the losers
Nothing's left to cling on to
Gotta hold on
Hold on to yourself

A cry of hope
A plea for peace
And my conscience beating
It's not what I want for

Sing This All Together

Why don't we sing this song all together
Open our heads let the pictures come
And if we close all our eyes together
Then we will see where we all come from

Pictures of us through the steamy haze
Picture of us painted in our place

Why don't we sing this song all together
Open our heads let the pictures come
And if we close all our eyes together
Then we will see where we all come from

Why don't we sing this song all together
Open our heads let the pictures come
And if we close all our eyes together
Then we will see where we all come from

Pictures of us beating on our drum
Never stopping til the rain has come

Fiddle And The Drum

And so once again
My dear Johnny my dear friend
And so once again you are fightin' us all
And when I ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry, and I fall
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum
You say I have turned
Like the enemies you've earned
But I can remember
All the good things you are
And so I ask you please
Can I help you find the peace and the star
Oh, my friend
What time is this
To trade the handshake for the fist
And so once again
Oh, America my friend
And so once again

Love Me Like A Bird Dog

Savin all your money
For a rainy day limousine
Teenage baby send you
Full friction magazine
I dont know how she do it
Up down turnaround
Four on the floor tonight
When she did what she was doin
She was rubbin me the wrong way right
Push come to shove
Give it one more try
Dont miss your water
Until the well runs dry
Love me like a birddog
Never learn to fly
Bareback baby
Tell me whats on your mind
If its the same old same old
Slap you on the back behind
I dont know how you do it

Making Love Out Of Nothing At All

(jim steinman)
I know just how to whisper,
And I know just how to cry;
I know just where to find the answers;
And I know just how to lie.
I know just how to fake it,
And I know just how to scheme;
I know just when to face the truth,
And then I know just when to dream.
And I know just where to touch you,
And I know just what to prove;
I know when to pull you closer,
And I know when to let you loose.
And I know the night is fading,
And I know that times gonna fly;
And Im never gonna tell you everything
Ive got to tell you,
But I know Ive got to give it a try.
And I know the roads to riches,
And I know the ways to fame;

Dark Eyes

Oh, the gentlemen are talking and the midnight moon is on the riverside.
Theyre drinking up and walking and it is time for me to slide.
I live in another world where life and death are memorized.
Where the earth is strung with lovers pearls and all I see are dark eyes.
A cock is crowing far away and another soldiers deep in prayer.
Some mothers child has gone astray, she cant find him anywhere.
But I can hear another drum beating for the dead that rise.
Whom natures beast fears as they come and all I see are dark eyes.
They tell me to be discreet for all intended purposes.
They tell me revenge is sweet and from where they stand, Im sure it is.
But I feel nothing for their game where beauty goes unrecognised.
All I feel is heat and flame and all I see are dark eyes.
Oh, the french girl, shes in paradise and a drunken man is at the wheel.
Hunger pays a heavy price to the falling gods of speed and steel.
Oh, time is short and the days are sweet and passion rules the arrow that flies.
A million faces at my feet but all I see are dark eyes.

The Carnival Is Over

Say goodbye, my own true lover,
As we sing a lovers song.
How it breaks my heart to leave you,
Now the carnival is gone.
How it breaks my heart to leave you,
Now the carnival is gone.
Say goodbye, my own true lover,
As we sing a lovers song.
How it breaks my heart to leave you,
Now the carnival is gone.
High above, the dawn is waking,
And my tears are falling rain,
For the carnival is over;
We may never meet again.
For the carnival is over;
We may never meet again.
##
##
Like a drum my heart was beating,
And your kiss was sweet as wine.

Too Hot

(howard houston)
Producer for bonnie: howard houston
Hearts beating like a drum
Like foxes on the run
Nothing baby, nothing is forever
Its too late to stop me now
You couldnt anyhow
Baby cant you see us together
Oh oh tell me baby
Oh oh tell me now - tell me now
Tell me now - baby now
Are you too hot
Cant you see its forever
Ill sail with you the seven seas
Cause I know babe what you feel
Are you too hot
Cant you see its forever
I say its like a symphony -
Baby you know the way I feel
Oh be my eternity
