Rebekah and Isaac

Rebekah and Isaac

I will draw some water for your camels from the well
Would you like a drink, of your travels can you tell?
So your master sent you here to find a wife for his dear son.
And now that you've met me, you think I'm the one he'll love.
Listen father please, to the tales this man tells
There is something, that he believes.
He says, Abraham's son Isaac, needs a wife, and that I am...
loved, in time to live. That I'll lift his emptiness.
And fill his soul with heart
Let us climb out from the dark.
Rebekah's heart was leading to the son of Abraham.
The servant gave her family gifts that he had brought with him.
And then her father said, "Rebekah and Isaac."
She may go, and find this young man, in the land of Abraham.
She said love, in time to live, will lift this emptiness.
And fill my soul with heart
Let us climb out from the dark.
Then the servant and his camels, with Rebekah and her maids.
Would travel through a wilderness by caravan for days.
One evening they arrived, Isaac lifted up his eyes...
Rebekah, could feel her heart beat.
Isaac, loved her at first sight.
He said love, in time to live, will lift this emptiness.
And fill this soul with heart
Let us climb out from the dark.
We can climb, out from the dark.

Tamure and Wine

Tamure and Wine
like spring and summer time,
and dance, to lift the hour.
The beating hula drums,
a warmth of flowers.
And if you sing running through the grass,
how far you'll go, deep into the past.
And if you run out onto the sand,
until the waves, can touch your hands.

The morning suns about to rise
I've always looked at it like "Burning Daylight"
A Pullman sidecar of tales
I'll write "The Call of the Wild"
The Yukon's in my blood, and the Hawaiian isles.
"The God of His Fathers," "The Faith of Men"
The "War of the Classes," and "Martin Eden"
I rose above "The Iron Heel"
"A Son of the Sun" by "The Star Rover"s will.
"The Sea Wolf" by "The Strength of the Strong"
"A Daughter of the Snows" and "John Barleycorn"
"The Cruise of the Snark" of the "South Sea Tales"
"When God Laughs" at "The Road" were on, and -
"Before Adam"...
"It's better to be ashes than dust"

All Is Vanity

Now there's a saying," All is Vanity."
Someone in our past, knew of these things.
There must be a way, to measure the stars,
when a super nova explodes, across the universe.
Now we're out there somewhere, and I'm needing you today.
How can love burn so bright, a billion stars away?
Trembling we bend the pages, in the truth, we set free.
As we fall into the sea, "All is Vanity."
Now there's a symbol, in the sky above.
Some see this at dusk, others at dawn.
From whence does the flock fly, and where doth it go?
With a V- formation into space, a Phoenix cracks the cold.
 To the stars Orion, unto the Pleiades.
If you dream of mountains, you'll surely dream of these.
In the stars where wisdom dances,
you will climb towards your dreams.
As you fall into the sea,"All is Vanity."

In The Eye of Horus

We were all just running scared
Through a garden that was bare
The Hawk was coming down on us,
we punched the sky in our fears
A hand was open, grasped by talons
And the eye of Horus appeared.
We espied, a great eagle, launch from the rivers tree.
One try, to finally, express what this really means.
In the eye of Horus, deep within the forest.
There will be an open hand, when the eagle comes to land.
Search of life, a certain look, inside reality.
Sometimes, a meltdown, happens beneath our feet.
In the eye of Horus, ruins, of the chorus.
Golden light that we bathe in, sing these words above the wind...
What is there to know?
We come and then we go.
And the world is left to grow, the gardens that we sowed.
You were always just one step behind me
Would it be enough to just let you dream?
Seems you always wanted more
Music becomes what you are
Come now, be the one who knows how to see...

Do The Years Matter

When time has gone into waterfalls
And an ageless face of beauty calls the wind,
through the fronds
And you sway away afar to be with her.
Her hair curls down her neck and shoulders bare, for you.
And I don't care, about the years gone by
I don't want to feel, like these days aren't mine, for living.
Do the years matter,  do the years matter at all?
I want to know, do the years matter at all?
A glow from the sun, on the aqua pond
And her eyes meet yours with such a calm like will,
through the fronds
And you sway away afar to be with her.
Her hair curls down her neck and shoulders bare...

Oh So Faraway

If I were to follow you, would it even matter at all?
Higher than the highest mountain, do you ever hear me, when I call?
If we go faraway, farther tomorrow than today.
Sometimes we have got to be a little closer,-
pick the pieces up and carry them onwards.
Oh so faraway, what if we end up failing?
How will we carry on another day?
Will we find our way, in this world we trade?
Across this open plain,
we walk on dangerous domain.
What if all that we have learned, isn't quite our destiny somehow?
Whether it's a path that we want, whether it's a road we end up on.
Then we must find our way, so we can live beyond today.
How far must we travel to get closer?
It seems the change we need is always out there.
Oh so faraway....  In this world we pray....
things of the heart we try to say.
Six days working in the sun, when will the seventh day ever come?
Remember when we came to the crossroads,-
remember when the world was young?
And round and around we go, until the last tales been told.
Sometimes, we have got to be a little closer.
And lift our spirits high before the whole world.
Oh so faraway....
I'll follow you so faraway.

To Be Alive

Hallelujah, is it more, what I found out in a fog.
As I looked back, what would be, a world burning in fantasy.
Turning away, I dropped lower to the highest ledge.
Feeling the wings my spirit must have, to reach out, I could fly.
As I moved down to the sea, there were waves of mystery.
I was flowing in the wake, there was nothing to be saved.
 To be alive,  needing you apart from the fools,
who are they, against the dreams of our lives? And I tried.
I walk in the trees, thinking of you, believing in me,
knowing the heights of our love, when your near.
Now, now that your gone, I cannot see, I cannot feel,
"To be Alive," needing you, in my arms.
You are like me, when you fall , when you reach.
Deep in your eyes, water falls on our lives.

Time

Times like a railyard that hums like the bees
the power of the engines and the wheels
A center from which to go,to new and to old
Did you find some time to call your own,
that tracks through your mind and through your soul?
The wind blows upon the stars, to send a man to Mars
An old woman wanders aimlessly
She falls before the sun, where sand and Time are one
She swears that she heard a voice from Mars
But the time that she had was all there was
Time changes everything,
no one can stop the dream
Were always running out of time
While Wisdom dances around, the end is never near
Should Wisdom ever stop, then Time would die from shock
The dream of Light is Time, And we are more than this
But the Omega stands, before all endlessness
The Great Pyramid has tried to stand the test of time
Still it breaks down a little more each day
To a fantasy watch of bliss, to wear upon your wrist
That takes you away to the unknown
And ignites the memories to keep you going...

A Restless Heart

A restless heart will lift her dress and dance
Nothing is gained, if nothings ever chanced
So the wind does die down, and the clouds are moved out
while the people lift up their hands
She looks out upon the myriads
Her voice burst into light round their heads
A change in the way Music vibrates the air.
Would you, love to, move and live again?
This day, this hour, were going to pull up stakes
She said the winds are now shifting, Hold on it feels like were drifting
There's plenty of fire in the horn, we can make this move, take the world by storm.
Loves like a mountain climb, in a storm that thunders all night
In this, world view, this weathers stranger than life
She said the winds are now shifting, It's time for a New Music City
At dawn the Arch is so bright---
with the flow of the river comes The Eventide...
Strange that they wonder why, Music moves to live her life.
And now she's going away, so far...
A restless heart will lift her dress and dance
Nothing is gained, if...
Music is living and very much aware.
