JOHN DENVER lyrics - Seasons Of The Heart

Opposite Tables

Original and similar lyrics
Father, oh, father please hear me, my song is a cry of desperation. All of the words I hear have lost their meaning. My life is a well of confusion drowned out by the sound of the lost and lonely. Only the voice inside speaks your name to me. If they only knew the things that I know, If they only could see the things that I see. If they only knew the things that I know, If they only could see the things that I see. My brothers at opposite tables, like fire and water against each other. Only a fool can't see the obvious ending. Are we as ashes to wildwood? Is life just a fire that can only consume us? Is there no vision of love to bind us together? If they only knew the things that I know, If they only could see the things that I see. If they only knew the things that I know, If they only could see the things that I see.

Awake

TANTRIC "After We Go"
Thinking back we were a struggling All the people, places We've left behind What others want you are a struggling it Second chances are the hardest things to find Another day, another sun is gone And everything around us Slowly wears us down So you pleasantly distract yourself Time is passing Don't forget to look around What if the life we knew wasn't dead It's only been forgotten cuz we fought and lost again I'm tired of always stumbling through it That's not the way to be Pay attention cuz it goes away And don't be bothered By the things you can't control Very few things never fade away Let the petty things That dwell go where they go What if the life we knew wasn't dead It's only been forgotten cuz we fought and lost again I'm tired of always stumbling through it That's not the way to be This is how I have to clear my mind This is how to take the blindfold off to find What I see an image of my life Then awake to find that everything was fine. What if the life we knew wasn't dead It's only been forgotten cuz we fought and lost again I'm tired of always stumbling through it That's not the way to be What if the life we knew wasn't dead It's only been forgotten cuz we fought and lost again I'm tired of always stumbling through it That's not the way to be

For The Better

Act Fast "Act Fast"
You knew you were right-until I proved you wrong You knew you were on track-till I showed you that you were lost You knew that things were going good-till I showed you what life's really like You're not everything you thought you were *Chorus* It's not too late, not yet at least You can always change for the better I'm not saying it's easy, but neither is life You've noticed your mistakes, it's time to make a change You knew you weren't right - when I showed you how bad you were You knew you were lost - But I told you how to get back on track You knew things weren't good - when I showed you your life Do you notice the mistakes you've made

Father

CAT STEVENS "Back To Earth"
Father oh Father Hear me if you can Is it true what they say That life is a dream I don't understand The things that make rain in my eyes Are they real or are they lies You know I hear so much about you now I'd give anything To go on a little boat with you Talk about the scheme of things On a little boat with you Father oh Father Guide me if you can Or give me the chance to follow you home I am your son but I wish I knew you When you were young Were you lonely as a boy You know i'd give so much to see you now I'd go anywhere Pick a little stick and walk with you Talk about the scheme of things On a short walk with you Father oh Father You give me just a little hope I feel something out there reaching for me Well here I am Won't you take me with you Out of this maze And away from this place Because it gets so cold and lonely here I'll do anything To sit on a little rock with you Talk about the scheme of things On a small rock with you Show me show me show me the way Before they grind me down And bleach me grey Send me power not to be afraid And when I close my eyes Let me see you once in the light Father oh Father Heal me if you can Is it true what they say That life is a dream

Coming Back To Life

PINK FLOYD "Division Bell"
Where were you when I was burned and broken While the days slipped by from my window watching Where were you when I was hurt and helpless Because the things you say and the things you do surround me While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words Dying to believe in what you heard I was staring straight into the shining sun Lost in thought and lost in time While the seeds of lifeand the seeds of change were planted Outside the rain fell dark and slow While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime I took a heavenly ride through our silence I knew the moment had arrived For killing the past and coming back to life I took a heavenly ride through our silence I knew the waiting had begun And headed straight..into the shining sun

When All The Bad Things In Your Life Turn To Worth It

John Wesley Harding "Dynablob 2: It Happened Every Night"
Those resourceful Romeos have all revealed You're the Juliet who couldn't be genteel All the parents looked askance with much displeasure As you dared to dance off with their little treasures And the teachers who preached anguish and abstention Treated you with distant condescension Patronised your youthful indignation With their idiotic indoctrination Then gave you bad grades just for being clever And you're qualified to be in debt for ever And you'll wonder what you did And you'll think you don't deserve it When the bad things, bad things When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it All the candidates who claim to know your fears Shit silence like it's verbal diarrhoea Imply that your suggestions are so tired Like they aspired to something higher They gonna sack you when you give them the wrong answers Or for failing to respond to his advances And you're faced with a senator's enquiry Sequestering your private life in diaries Those wretched Romeos now politicians Telling all the truth but with omissions And you'll think that you've been blessed And you thought that you were cursed When all the bad things, bad things When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it The pages fly, the calendar gets thinner Springs turns into summer into winter Preachers will illuminate their candles On Romeos with trousers round their ankles The politicians surrender to indictment The teachers sacked for lack of excitement But these are not the reasons you endure Revenge could never please a heart so pure You thought your reward would be in heaven Or a day job at the 7-11 While everyone around you ran for cover You found a secret, now your name is love And you'll wonder what you did And you'll think you don't deserve it When all the bad things, bad things When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it
