JOHN DENVER lyrics - Portrait

The Wings That Fly Us Home

Original and similar lyrics
(Henry/Denver) There are many ways of being in the circle we call life. A wise man seeks an answer, burns his candle through the night. Is a jewel just a pebble that found a way to shine? Is a hero's blood more righteous than a hobo's sip of wine? Did I speak to you one morning on some distant world away? Did you save me from an arrow? Did you lay me in a grave? Were we brothers on a journey? Did you teach me how to run? Were we broken by the waters? Did I lie you in the sun? I dreamed you were a prophet in a meadow, I dreamed I was a mountain in the wind. I dreamed you knelt and touched me with a flower, I awoke with this: a flower in my hand. I know that love is seeing all the infinite in one. In the brotherhood of creatures, through the Father, through the Son. The vision of your goodness will sustain me through the cold. Take my hand now to remember when you find yourself alone: you are never alone. And the spirit fills the darkness of the heavens. It fills the endless yearning of the soul. It lives within a star too far to dream of. It lives within each part and is the whole: it's the fire and the wings that fly us home, fly us home, fly us home.

We Are The World

Kelly Family
There comes a time when we Need a certain call When the world must come together as one. There are people dying and it's time to lend a hand To life - the greatest gift of all. We can't go on pretending day by day That someone somewhere will soon make a change. We are all a part of God's great big family And the truth you know love is all we need. We are the world we are the children We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving. There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives. It's true we make a better days just you and me. Send them your heart so they know that someone cares And their lives will be stronger and free. As God has shown us by turning stone to bread so we all must lend a helping hand. We are the world ... When you're down and out There seems no hope at all But if you just believe There's no way we can fall Let us realize that a Change will only come When we stand together as one. We are the world ...

I've Dreamed Of You

BARBRA STREISAND "A Love Like Ours"
I've dreamed of you Always feeling you Were there And all my life I have searched for you Everywhere I caught your smile In the morning sun I heard your whisper On the breeze of night I prayed one day That your arms would hold me tight And just when I Thought love had passed me by We met That first look In your eyes I can't forget You melted me With your tender touch I felt all fear and sorrow Slip away Now here we stand Hand in hand This blessed day I promise you As I give to you My heart That nothing in this world Shall keep us apart Come happily ever after be The man I'll love Until the very end I've dreamed of you My great love And my best friend For God must know How I love you so He's blessed us here today As man and wife Come dream with me As I've dreamed of you All my life Come dream with me AS I've dreamed of you All my life

Solitude Standing

SUZANNE VEGA "Solitude Standing"
Solitude stands by the window She turns her head as I walk in the room I can see by her eyes she's been waiting Standing in the slant of the late afternoon And she turns to me with her hand extended Her palm is split with a flower with a flame Solitude stands in the doorway And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette By her long cool stare and her silence I suddenly remember each time we've met And she turns to me with her hand extended Her palm is split with a flower with a flame And she says 'I've come to set a twisted thing straight' And she says 'I've come to lighten this dark heart' And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear And I say 'I've never thought of finding you here' I turn to the crowd as they're watching They're sitting all together in the dark in the warm I wanted to be in there among them I see how their eyes are gathered into one And then she turns to me with her hand extended Her palm is split with a flower with a flame And she says 'I've come to set a twisted thing straight' And she says'l've come to lighten this dark heart' And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear And I say 'I've never thought of finding you here' Solitude stands in the doorway And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette By her long cool stare and her silence I suddenly remember each time we've met And she turns to me with her hand extended Her palm is split with a flower with a flame

Respect The Mustache

ACTION BRONSON "Well-Done"
Meanwhile, behind the facade There lurks the secret of a strange Albanian genius I'm like a young Bill Kazmaier, swollen from the juice Primobolan in my hemoglobin, chiefin' on the spruce Rocking all white silk, shorts just stop at the knee Stay saucy like a pasta, with the broccoli, who's stopping me?
