JOHN DENVER lyrics - The Flower That Shattered The Stone

The Flower That Shattered The Stone

Original and similar lyrics
(Henry/Jarvis) The earth is our mother, just turning around with her trees in the forest and roots underground. Our father above us, whose sigh is the wind, paint us a rainbow without any end. As the river runs freely, the mountain does rise. Let me touch with my fingers, and see with my eyes. In the hearts of the children, a pure love still grows. Like a bright star in heaven that lights our way home, like the flower that shattered the stone. Sparrows find freedom beholding the sun, in the infinite beauty, we're all joined in one. I reach out before me and look to the sky, did I hear someone whisper, did something pass by? As the river runs freely, the mountain does rise. Let me touch with my fingers, and see with my eyes. In the hearts of the children, a pure love still grows. Like a bright star in heaven that lights our way home, like the flower that shattered the stone. Like a bright star in heaven that lights our way home, like the flower that shattered the stone.

Stars Fall From Heaven

Kelly Family
It's cold outside and the moon is bright And I'm alone tonight If I was a star that shines so bright I'd shine my love to you It's not the words you say Neither the ways they're said And it's not the things you do That makes me wanna fly to you Oh baby yeah When a star falls from heaven don't ask me why When a star falls from heaven gonna see me cry When stars fall from heaven I don't know why When stars fall from heaven gonna see me cry It's cold outside it's dark out here You're far and I1m alone Stars shone bright as the tears rolled down My burning cheek's as I cry It's not the words... When a star... When stars fall...

Jean The Birdman

David Sylvian "The First Day"
He gambles on the Sabbath He's pulling at the mane He thrashes on the horse's back Ambition is a bloody game Horse doesn't want to jump The river looks too wide Well he faces every hurdle With a nervous state of mind Stay with me, breathe deeply take three paces back turn and make a full attack The gods are laughing And they're tugging at the reins But he's taken to his wings And they hit the bank Heaven may stone him But Jean the birdman pulls it off His finger's on the trigger His eye is on the clock He doesn't give the game away And quickly fires the bullets off Six hearts cut short Still dreaming they're alive Run'round in dusty circles Like an absent state of mind Who hunter? Who victim? God love America He surely doesn't love him Hitching out of nowhere Lands in traffic knee deep A chance to stave the morning off And get some sleep Heaven may stone him But Jean the birdman pulls it off He wears a crucifix His mother left to him It's wrapped in chains around his heart Rusted and wafer thin Don't count on luck son All the angels sing Don't need to check a weathervane We all know what tomorrow brings Life is a gamble from Coyotes with the mules Life is a bullring For taking risks and flouting rules Who needs a safety net The world is open wide Just look out for card sharks And the danger signs Heaven may stone him But Jean the birdman pulls it off

Life With The Lions

Billy Dean
He was trapped in a haircut he no longer believed in She said I'm a teacher here, I teach the children And he wondered to himself there and then all the things he could learn from her A great mighty wonder Think of the names you once called me in anger Remember the sadness in Florence Ballard's eyes Imagine all the melancholy you could find in the arms of a stranger Bread of Heaven Seems like nothing goes right In the world that we were born in But the horizon is bright Yonder comes the morning Upstairs they're buying a stairway to Heaven Down in the Garden they're changing sticks into snakes And the jangle of the religious medals would put The Fear of God into an angel Come all ye faithful Their baby came home to them an unmarried mother They wished that she would turn into a pillar of salt But in the end, compassion has to be the greatest family value Hope of the helpless Looks like a drift to the Right For the world we were born in But the horizon is bright Yonder comes the morning

Fare Thee Well

INDIGO GIRLS "Swamp Ophelia"
Fare thee well my bright star I watched your tailights blaze into nothingness But you were long gone before I ever got to you Before you blazed past this address And now I think of having loved and having lost But never know what it feel like to never love Who can say what's better when my heart's become the cost A mere token of a brighter jewel sent from above Fare thee well my bright star The vanity of youth the color of your eyes And maybe if I'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day Or if I'd been older, I'd been wise Too thick the heat of those long summer evenings For a cool evening I began to yearn But you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire Waiting to see if I would burn Fare thee well my bright star It was a brief brilliant miracle dive That which I looked up to and I clung o for dear life Had to burn itself up just to make itself alive And I caught you then in your moment of glory Your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage With a moment so clear that it's as if you're still before me My once in a lifetime star of an age Fare thee well my bright star Last night the tongues of fire circled me round And this strange season of pain will come to pass When the healing hands of autumn cool me down
