JOHN DENVER lyrics - Rocky Mountain Christmas

Christmas For Cowboys

Original and similar lyrics
(Weisberg) Tall in the saddle, we spend Christmas Day, driving the cattle on the snow covered-plains. All of the good gifts given today, ours is the sky and the wide open range. Back in the city they have different ways, football and eggnog and Christmas parades. I'll take the blanket, I'll take the reins, Christmas for cowboys and wide-open plains. A campfire for warmth as we stop for the night, the stars overhead are Christmas tree lights. The wind sings a hymn as we bow down to pray, Christmas for cowboys and wide-open plains. Tall in the saddle we spend Christmas Day, driving the cattle on the snow-covered plains. So many gifts have been opened today, ours is the sky and the wide open range. It's Christmas for cowboys and wide open plains.

Billions

JOJO "Agápē"
3:30 in the morning time Watching my lover sleep With my heart wide open All this racing in my mind Goes to lover’s lingering And my eyes wide open Been around the world, But the roads lead back to you If it’s zero gravity I feel pulled right back to you Nothing's impossible, With love so astronomical So trust when you watch me go I’ll orbit back to you Cause I've been to different atmospheres Never did I breathe so clear Know there’s billions in the world But I’ll always come back to you Yeah, you, you, you, you All the seasons I've survived, Going up and down this dream With my eyes wide open I've seen love heal the broken It’s made me proud to sing With my life wide open Nothing's impossible, With love so astronomical So trust when you watch me go I’ll orbit back to you Cause I've been to different atmospheres Never did I breathe so clear Know there’s billions in the world But I’ll always come back to you Yeah, I know there’s billions in the world But I’ll always come back to you babe Know there’s billions in the world But I’ll always come back to you babe I've heard too many “yes's" just to die about a no... Fuck! And I've seen to many "yes's" just to hmm... Today I have too many tattoos to go back to status-quo And I've heard too many “yes's" just to die about a “no” I've seen too many smiles to be flustered by a frown And I’m so used to being so high up you can’t just talk me down I hot-boxed my apartment just to come up with this song But writers block kept winning and I let it tag along Whatever Cause I've been to different atmospheres Know there’s billions in the world But I’ll always come back to you

Spectres

AVANTASIA "The Mystery Of Time"
Through the shimmer on this cold alley paving See the moonshine painting the ground Cobble stones keeping tales that remain untold More than ages old Brewing mist like a shroud on the damp floor Hear it whisper lucidity away Ornate cold is the king of these streets tonight The void is taking hold Make haste as the wind's getting colder It's chasing the dreamer away Wide open minds will divine without reason Cold is the night as you're braving the gale Wide open eyes A spectre is breezing through the moonlit sky See them guises on the prowl, what a show! Feel them shadows drag you into a nightmare To the melody of which you don't know If it's really there Dance in the gloom, dance in the gloom Every move is a step to your tomb We're the machine that's gonna make you dream Phantasmagoria Time flies from the space of an hour Telling tales in the poorhouse they say… Wide open minds will divine without reason Cold is the night as you're braving the gale Wide open eyes A spectre is breezing through the moonlit sky Wide open minds will divine without reason Cold is the night as you're braving the gale Wide open eyes and a spectre is breezing Cold is the night as you're braving the pale Wide open minds - once upon a moonlit night…

Razed To The Ground

ARCHIVE "Controlling Crowds"
The unassailable leading me down the wide path, I consider the scale the whole aftermath, from the land I sketch a grand design, a being in time, message the floodlight will shine, divine skies will open, open road chosen pausing in time frozen, best left unspoken, about the life settling down, steadily lowered into the ground the sound is quite deafening, confounded regiments getting hounded out, never better the fallout of the sidesplitter, rise of the switch-hitter, watch as he grows bitter, foreseeable futures they be selling him down the river, purified and maybe when we refine and say, you'll be hearing him coming from half a mile away, contemplation still thinking it over onward we soldier clearer than present danger, us we as a planet handing arms to the generations down the line what is left behind? Conscience cannot carry the weight of consequence, says a voice who then utters a vote of confidence, see the level of minerals going down to ground zero, nothing can be stopping declines cycle, wheels turn the sucking it dry desert, but the oceans wave is on the rise in front of your eyes, paralysed you’re rooted into the spot, you can’t move the rot is setting in at a rate of knots. So far from the truth, unavoidable proof revelations will raise the roof, the revolutions will be televised to sensationalise and destabilise, I'm wide eyed aware and wiser to the scandal, it is too much for one man to handle, stand together we might stand a hope in hells chance or else a threatening fate waits.

Wide Open Road

JOHNNY CASH
Well, you said you had enough You said that you were leavin' I said, "Shove off honey, baby, I ain't grievin' Pack your bags and pull out this evenin' There's a wide open road" Early this mornin' you where nowhere about And so I searched the town but you had done pulled out I looked north, east and west and then a leadin' south I saw a wide open road There's a wide open road It's leadin' south from my abode If you stick around and turn your damper down There's a wide open road Well, the reason I was lookin' for you all over town Was to tell you that your kitty cat was still around And you left your weddin' ring when you went down That wide open road If you gonna stay away then honey let me know How to cook hot biscuits, how to roll a dough Every thing's gone crazy since I told you to go Down the wide open road There's a wide open road And honey, I want you to know You can look down south or you can turn back home And there's a wide open road

He's Alive

JOHNNY CASH "A Believer Sings The Truth"
The gates and doors were barred And all the windows fastened down I spent the night in sleeplessness And rose at every sound Half in hope of sorrow And half in fear the day Would find the soldiers breakin' through To drag us all away And just before the sunrise I heard somethin' at the wall The gate began to rattle And a voice began to call I hurried to the window Looked down into the street Expecting swords and torches And the sound of soldiers' feet But there was no one there but Mary So I went down to let her in And John stood there beside me As she told me where, she'd been "They've moved Him in the night And none of us knows where The Stone's been rolled away And now His body isn't there" We both ran toward the garden Then John ran on ahead We found the stone and empty tomb Just the way that Mary said But the windin' sheet they wrapped Him in Was just an empty shell And how or where, they'd taken Him Was more than I could tell Oh, somethin' strange had happened there Just what I did not know John believed a miracle But I just turned to go Circumstance and speculation Couldn't lift me very high I'd seen them crucify Him And I saw Him die Back inside the house again The guilt and anguish came Everything, I had promised Him Just added to my shame When at last it came to choices I denied, I knew His name And even if He were alive It wouldn't be the same Suddenly the air was filled With a strange and sweet perfume Light that came from everywhere Drove shadows from the room And Jesus stood before me With His arms held open wide I fell down on my knees And I just clung to Him and cried He raised me to my feet And as I looked into His eyes The love was shining out from Him Like sunlight from the skies Guilt in my confusion Disappeared in sweet release And every fear I ever had Just melted into peace He's alive, He's alive He's alive and I'm forgiven Heaven's gates are open wide He's alive, He's alive He's alive and I'm forgiven Heaven's gates are open wide He's alive, He's alive He's alive and I'm forgiven Heaven's gates are open wide He's alive, He's alive, He's alive, He's alive
