JOAN BAEZ lyrics - Dark Chords On A Big Guitar

Wings

Original and similar lyrics
At night we crossed the border Following a Black robe To the edge of the reservationton Cataldo Mission Where the saints and all the martyrs Look down on dying converts What makes the water holy she says is that that it's the closest thing to rain I stole a mule from Anthony I helped Anne up upon it And we rode to Coeur d'Alene Through Harrison and Wallace They were blasting out the tunnels Making way for the light of learning When Jesus comes a'calling she said he's coming round the mountain on a train [Chorus:] It's my home-last night I dreamt that I grew wings I found a place where they could hear me when I sing We floated on to Hanford On a lumber boat up river Past the fisheries and the milltowns like a stretch of future graveyards She was driven to distraction Said I wonder what will happen When they find out they're mistaken The land is too changed to ever change We waded through the marketplace Someone's ship had come in There was silver and begonias Dynamite and cattle There were hearts as big as apples And apples in the shape of Mary's heart I said inside this gilded cage a songbird always looks so plain [Chorus:] It's my home-last night I dreamt that I grew wings I found a place where they could hear me when I sing. [musical interlude] And so they came with cameras Breaking through the morning mist Press and businessmen-tycoons-Episcopal philanthropists Lost in their appraisal of the body of a woman But all we saw were lowlands Clouds clung to mountains without strings And at last we saw some people... And at last we saw some people... And at last we saw some people Huddled up against The rain that was descending like railroad spikes and hammers They were headed for the border Walking and then running And then they were gone into the fog but Anne said Underneath their jackets she saw wings

A Poetic Retelling Of An Unfortunate Seduction

BRIGHT EYES
The language in the dimmer rooms Seems to represent the light source well How soft they speak and seem to be at peace With the movement of the music and the madness That is pulling me into this And the shades of the lamps are woven red The light, it stains and consecrates Anointing all forgotten forms That swirl and smoke and haunt this place The girls in gowns all nurse the dark Pulling it near to their swelling breasts And watch as it seeps to their hearts And beats within their virgin chests And here I know seduction breeds From wanton hearts that would seduce And grows and spreads its vine and leaves Embracing those who might have moved But now remain to drink the night From vials black and thick with steam Such intoxicating delights That leave you drunk inside this dream And you watch them take the light from you And you find yourself On a velvet couch Tasting the skin of a foreign girl Her eyes are black And wet like oil And she ties your hands with a string of pearls And you tremble like a frightened bird As she closes in and captures you To place you in the silver cage Deep within her poisoned womb And once you're safe inside She might let you out to fly In the circles around the room But it's always night And there is no moon And you wonder if you are alive And you're not sure if you want to be But you drank her sweat like it was wine And you lay with her on a bed of blue And it's awful sweet Like the fruit she cuts and feeds to you

DANA GLOVER
Raaaaaaiiiiinnn Raaaaaaiiiiinnn Rain...Her mother gave her a name on a weary day 24 hours of pain then she gave her away Into the arms of another family Into a life of confusion and misery Rain...day after day in her room where the walls are bare No dream exist in the eyes of her empty stare Night after night in her room with no one to care She lays her head down to cry and whispers a prayer Oh...woah Oh God there must be some mistake But no one's ever loved me I'd like to believe in you and I try But I'm just so lonely Raaaaaiiiiiinnnnn Raaaaaiiiiiinnnnn Rain...she's got a smile in her heart no one's ever seen She's got a life in her mind and a crave to dream She walks alone on her way to a secret place And fills her soul up with tears Such a silent space Oh...woahhh...woah Rain, one tattered shoe on the ledge one in midair She feels a whisperin' breeze rushing through her hair She lifts her face to the sky in complete dispair And cries aloud in the night with her very last prayer Oh...woah Oh God there must be some mistake But no one's ever loved me But if there's something more in my life you can make Here I am won't you shooowwww me And then the clouds began to roll... And the peace replaced her pain.... And on her face and in her soul... She felt the drops of that same...same... Raaaaiiiiinnnnn Pourin' Raaaaiiinnnnnnn I....I....come on I need your love to rain down on me Raaaiiiiiinnnn...yeah whoah...yeah yeahh...woah yeah ohh yeahhh...

GENESIS "Abacab"
The grey of evening fills the room No need to look outside Oh to see or feel the rain I reach across to touch her But I know that she's not there Rain keeps running down the window pane Time is running out for me Can't you see what you are doing to me Can't you see what you have done As I try to pass another long and sleepless night A hundred crazy voices call my name As I try to pass them by I can almost believe that she is here She's in the glow of the night Do you know what you have done Do you know what you've begun Do you see we shall never be together again All of my life Oh the lonely people, the empty rooms Pointless violence, silent tombs Could it be that we shall be together again Sheets of double glazing help to keep outside the night Only foreign city sirens can cut through Nylon sheets and blankets help to minimise the cold But they can't keep out the chilling sounds Will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming That she is here with me She's in the glow of the night Do you know what you have done Do you know what you've begun Do you see we shall never be together again All of my life Oh the lonely people, the empty rooms Pointless violence, silent tombs Could it be that we shall be together again Yes, could it be that we shall be together again In silence and darkness We held each other near that night We prayed it would last forever Forever Blood on the windows Millions of ordinary people are there They gaze at the scenery They act as if it is perfectly clear Take a look at the mountains Take a look at the beautiful river of blood The liquid surrounds me I fight to rise from this river of hell I stare round about me Children are swimming and playing with boats Their features are changing Their bodies dissolve and I am alone I am alone Now see what you've gone and done Now see what you've gone and done Now you never did see such a terrible thing As was seen last night on TV Maybe if we're lucky, they will show it again Such a terrible thing to see There's nothing you can do when you're the next in line You've got to go Domino Now I'm one with the living and I'm feeling just fine I know just what I must do Play the game of happiness and never let on That it only lives on in a song No there's nothing you can do when you're the next in line You've got to go Domino Do you know - - What you have done Do you know - Do you know what you've begun In silence and darkness Hold each other near tonight And pray it will last forever Forever Will last forever Forever No there's nothing you can do when you're the next in line You've got to go Domino Do you know - - What you have done Do you know - Do you know what you've begun

Hotel California

AARON FRESH
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell And I was thinking to myself, this could be heaven or this could be hell Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say... Welcome to the hotel california Such a lovely place Such a lovely face Plenty of room at the hotel california Any time of year, you can find it here Her mind is tiffany-twisted, she got the mercedes bends She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. Some dance to remember, some dance to forget So I called up the captain, please bring me my wine He said, we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine And still those voices are calling from far away, Wake you up in the middle of the night Just to hear them say... Welcome to the hotel california Such a lovely place Such a lovely face They livin’ it up at the hotel california What a nice surprise, bring your alibis Mirrors on the ceiling, The pink champagne on ice And she said we are all just prisoners here, of our own device And in the masters chambers, They gathered for the feast The stab it with their steely knives, But they just can’t kill the beast Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door I had to find the passage back To the place I was before relax, said the night man, We are programmed to receive.
