JOHN DENVER lyrics - Forever, John

On The Wings Of A Dream

Original and similar lyrics
Yesterday I had a dream about dying, about laying to rest and then flying, how the moment at hand is the only thing we really own. And I lay in my bed and I wondered, after all has been said and is done for, why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone? Is this life just a path to the place that we all have come from? Does the heart know the way and if not, can it ever be found in a smile or a tear or a prayer or a sigh or a song? And if so, then I sing for my father, and in truth, you must know I would rather he were here by my side, we could fly on the wings of a dream. To a place where the spirit would find us and the joy and surrender would bind us. We are one anyway, anyway we are more than we seem. There are those who will lead us, protect us each step of the way. From beginning to end, for each moment, forever, each day. Such a gift has been given, it can never be taken away. Though the body in passing must leave us, there is one who remains to receive us. There are those in this life who are friends from our heavenly home. So I listen to the voices inside me, for I know they are there just to guide me. And my faith will proclaim it is so, we are never alone. From the life to the light, from the dark of the night to the dawn, he is so in my heart, he is here, he could never be gone. Though the singer is silent, there still is the truth of the song, in the song. Yesterday I had a dream about dying, about laying to rest and then flying, how the moment at hand is the only thing we really own. And I lay in my bed and I wondered, after all has been said and is done for, why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone? Oh, why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone?

While You're Sleeping

ABK (ANYBODY KILLA) "Hatchet Warrior"
[Verse 1] Now I lay me down to sleep I pray my dreams don't slowly creep Caught up in a web with no escape Something the mind can't break unless you wide awake Have you ever had a nightmare, and been scared? Then woke up in the morning and forgot it was there Then the shit really happens like deja-vu But you sit back and act like you never knew The same situation happened in my life And I feel that I sould tell it cause the timing is right Now the only reason that I'm speakin' is cause I'm teachin' Thinkin' if I let it out my head'll stop tweakin' Mixed emotions caused from stress That reunite when you lay your head down to rest It's like creatures of the night leavin nothing but bad news And things about the future that might make you confused [Verse 2] I remember way back in the day At the age of 13 before moms passed away The dreams that I had people said weren't right Like the evilness of afterlife lurkin' in the night Candlelight blew out, bed stops shakin' Down on my knees prayin', askin' to be taken To another life where it's safer than this Not a dream but reality I hope for this wish But it never came true so I'm stuck in this place Just a native actin' crazy that keeps changin' his face Searchin' for the final answer so I can spread the word Now that you really see me I'm just askin' to be heard We all in this together, so they call us night crawlers Think the world's feelin' weary because we gettin' smarter Silohettes in the hallway, dead men holla Can't sleep at night cause the spirits won't allow ya [Blaze Ya Dead Homie Talking] You know bein' dead I remember thinkin' death would be horrible and terrifying Shit, I mean that's what everybody thinks But now, having died and shit I can now see everything Like every question the living have, I now know the answers to It's like I'm awake now, and living was just a dream [Verse 3] Call me the dream catcher, mother earth smoker Peyote pack piece pipes hallucinatin' toker Blessed with the wisdom that you see in my eyes Don't be surprised if you ever think you caught up inside Like the awakaning of life, or the passion of death That keeps you jumpin' up in shivers from ice cold breath Now you swear you're being followed everytime that you rest Or you feel sharp pains drillin' deep in your chest I don't expect anyone to believe if they don't want to But don't expect yourself to rest in peace when spirits haunt you Make your choice people dream it or not It's time to look into the situation we got Pinpoint the whole problem, get rid of all the anger Release all the stress before the world becomes a stranger Medicine man above your headboard with a dream catcher In the blood of the boogie man the warrior'll protect ya

Waiting

Erase The Grey "27 Days"
Your face on my mind The thought of you in my head Every moment that I am alive Every breath I breathe Every thing I do Is and will always be For you I am waiting For you to light my way I am waiting For you to run away There is not One thing I know That could take me away from All the sights I'll show you You are my life And I will stay Next to you Until I dream my last sweet dream away My soul is yours These tears are too And everything I'll ever do Everything I'll ever do is For you I never Wanted more than I had You gave me Something that I can't live without Why did I Not know what was in me All this time I never Ever thought you would believe me This moment is ours These dreams are coming true And everything I'll do is For you When you cry Just close your eyes And think of me I'll be there Every time you'll ever need me Remember everything Everything I'll ever do Is and will always be For you

Buried

ALKALINE TRIO
I'm awake It was a half bad dream That was way too long My whole life it seemed Then someone started digging me up Turned my headstone into dust The sun was swallowed by the trees The night was here for good You pulled my hair, picked my head up You put oxygen into my blood You walked me through the gates like we were visitors for the day You laid me down in the back seat And you drove till I woke up to hear you say You never lie but it's no fun to tell the truth I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you I'm awake It was a half bad dream That was way too long My whole life it seemed Than someone started digging me up Turned my headstone into dust I know you never lie but it's no fun to tell the truth I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you I know you never lie but it's so square to tell the truth I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you To you [x4]

Beach Chair

JAY-Z "Kingdom Come"
[Verse One] Life is but a dream to me I don't wanna wake up Thirty odd years without having my cake up So I'm about my paper 24/7, 365,366 in a leap year I don't know why we here Since we gotta be here Life is but a beach chair Went from having shabby clothes Crossing over Abbey Roads Hear my angels singing to me Are you happy HOV? I just hope I'm hearing right Karma's got me fearing life Colleek are you praying for me See I got demons in my past So I got daughters on the way If the prophecy's correct Then the child should have to pay For the sins of a father So I barter my tomorrows Against my yesterdays In hopes that she'll be OK And when I'm no longer here To shade her face from the glare I'll give her my share of Carol's Daughter and a new beach chair [Verse Two] Life is but a dream to me Gun shots sing to these Other guys but lullabies Don't mean a thing to me I'm not afraid of dying I'm afraid of not trying Everyday hit every wave Like I'm Hawaiian I don't surf the net No I never been on myspace Too busy letting my voice vibrate Carving out my space In this world of fly girls Cutthroats & diamond cut ropes I twirls Benzs round corners Where the sun don't shine I let the wheels give a glimpse Of hope of one's grind Some said HOV, how you get so fly I said from not being afraid to fall out the sky My physical's a shell So when I say farewell My soul will find an even Higher plane to dwell So fly you shall So have no fear, just know that Life is but a beach chair [Verse Three] Life is but a dream Can't mimic my life I'm the thinnest cut slice Intercut, the winner's cup With winters rough enough TO interrupt life That's why I'm both The saint & the sinner Nice This is Jay everyday No compromise No compass comes with this life Just eyes So to map it out You must look inside Sure books can guide you But your heart defines you Chica You corason is what brought us home In great shape like Heidi Klum Maricon, I am on Permanent Vaca Life is but a beach chair This song is like a Hallmark card Until you read each here So till she's here And she declared The aire I will prepare A blueprint for you to print A map for you to get back A guide for your eyes And so you won't lose scent I'll make a stink for you to think I ink these verses full of prose So you won't get conned out of 2 cent My last will and testament I leave my heir My share of Roc-AFella Records and a new beach chair

Within The Walls Of Chaos

EXODUS
Murder, drugs, cash, and greed It touches everyone and everything Within the walls there's no escaping the disease Sidwalks turn to pharmacies All the pimps and pushers territories Dollars pouring in from the victims trapped within Schoolyard's a place of sorrow Pray your children live to see tomorrow A place where mothers cry, and kiss their dying sons goodbye Living in a state of fear Afraid of everything they see or hear Someone they love may get shot For drugs they never even bought! Violence is a way of life Revenge delivered with a gun or knife Paybacks are a bitch They'll leave you dying in a ditch Caught in the hypnotic spell Their life's story they'll never life to tell In a hazy curtain, they can't see the end is certain Imprisoned by narcotic chains Life for some will never be the same Trapped in walls of glass Hoping that this all will pass But some will find their way outside Face the evil, eyes open wide Break the bonds that pull you in Escape the hell that thrives... Chorus Within the walls Of chaos and despair Most are unemployed Living on welfare Prowling the halls The vultures come to feed On the flesh of those Who are enslaved to the need The final curtain falls And no one sheds a fear Their pleas for help always seem to fall Upon deaf ears Within the walls of chaos they forgot That dignity and sanity Are things that can't be bought With every passing day Another life is cast astray Wear the wrong colors And you might get blown away Turn of a page Another name's crossed off the list Shot between the eyes With a rig clenched in his fist Driven to the grave Ruled by need for kicks Extract their own gold teeth To satisfy their fix There's cracks in the foundation The time will soon arrive When the walls will crumble down And bury everyone alive! Within the walls... Within the walls of chaos... Within the walls... Within the walls of chaos... Within the walls... Within the walls of chaos!
