JOHN DENVER lyrics - John Denver Collection

Children Of The Universe

Original and similar lyrics
(Denver/Henry) A heritage of vision was given to us all to smell the rose's fragrance, to hear the songbird's call. To watch the distant moonlight fill the coming of the tides, to understand that life is more than always choosing sides. And some have seen what can be seen of sailing ships and kings. And some are given feet of clay and some are given wings. Some must struggle just to breathe, some have a golden spoon. And some will never leave the nest while some walk on the moon. And don't you know the life that lives within the silent hills is just as rich and beautiful and just as unfulfilled. As man with all his intellect, his reason and his choice, oh, who's to say the nightingale has any less a voice. The silver dolphins twist and dance and sing to one another, the cosmic ocean knows no bounds for all that live are brothers. The whippoorwill, the grizzly bear, the elephant, the whale, all children of the universe, all weavers of the tale. So palomino, lie back down and dream yourself to sleep. The hawk flies with the morning dove, the lion with the sheep. As far away as you may go, we'll never be apart. It's in your dreams that you will know the seasons of the heart.

When You Dream

BARENAKED LADIES "Stunt"
With life just begun, my sleeping new son has eyes that roll back in his head They flutter and dart, he slows down his heart and pictures a world past his bed It's hard to believe As I watch you breathe Your mind drifts and weaves When you dream, what do you dream about When you dream, what do you dream about Do you dream about music or mathematics or planets too far for the eye Do you dream about Jesus or quantum mechanics or angels who sing lullabies His fontanelle pulses with lives that he's lived With memories he'll learn to ignore And when it is closed, he already knows he's forgotten all he knew before But when sleep sets in history begins But the future will win When you dream, what do you dream about When you dream, what do you dream about Are they colour or black and white, Yiddish or English or languages not yet conceived Are they silent or boisterous Do you hear noises just loud enough to be perceived Do you hear Del Shannon's 'Runaway' playing on transistor radio waves With so little experience, your mind not yet cognizant Are you wise beyond your few days When you dream, what do you dream about When you dream, what do you dream about

Ballad Of A Crystal Man

DONOVAN
Walk along and talk along and live your lives quite freely But leave our children with their toys of peppermint and candy. For seagull I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie. Your thoughts they are of harlequin, your speeches of quicksilver, I read your faces like a poem, kaleidoscope of hate words. For seagull I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie. On the quilted battlefields of soldiers dazzling made of toy tin The big bomb like a child's hand could sweep them dead just so to win. For seagull I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie. As you fill your glasses with the wine of murdered negroes Thinking not of beauty that spreads like morning sun-glow. Seagull I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie. I pray your dreams of vivid screams of children dying slowly And as you polish up your guns your real self be reflecting. For seagull I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie. Vietnam, your latest game, you're playing with your blackest Queen Damn your souls and curse your grins, I stand here with a fading dream. For seagull I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie.

Diary Of A Madman

OZZY OSBOURNE "Diary Of A Madman"
Screaming at the window Watch me die another day Hopeless situation Endless price I have to pay Sanity now it's beyond me There's no choice Diary of a madman Walk the line again today Entries of confusion Dear diary, I'm here to stay Manic depression befriends me Hear his voice Sanity now it's beyond me There's no choice A sickened mind and spirit The mirror tells me lies Could I mistake myself for someone Who lives behind my eyes Will he escape my soul Or will he live in me Is he trying to get out Or trying to enter me Voices in the darkness Scream away my mental health Can I ask a question To help me save me from myself Enemies fill up the pages Are they me Monday 'till Sunday in stages Set me free

Decades

Anything Box "Worth"
(Claude S.) I hear a sound in the corridor A screaming child I can't ignore Goes on and on and on I press my ears I can't make it go away Do we understand that this is life? Do we understand anything? Take my heart and never stop Take my heart and never stop There's laughter in the villages A holiday beneath the moon Across the world somebody dies, And still I will feel This emptiness Do we understand that this is living? Do we understand that life is precious? Do we understand that life was given? Take my heart and never stop Take my heart and never stop All I want to do is sleep Regress into subconscious dreams Eluding all the outside thoughts I have no where else to turn Take my heart and never stop Take my heart and never stop (repeat to end)

We Stand Alone

Covenant
stand before the gates and watch metropolis empires come and go we live forever and eternity is in your hidden eyes take my broken wings teach me to fly again I stand alone we stand alone down the empty streets head for the seven hills vestal virgins dance we steal the fire battered columns stand as silent monuments deep inside their dreams I see your memories I stand alone… we share the last champagne and watch necropolis still and so let's leave her to her silent walks the sun of Rome is set and our day is gone a kiss a taste of red from your open lips I stand alone…
