JOHN DENVER lyrics - Voice Of America

Eagle And The Hawk

Original and similar lyrics
Ohhhhhh, I am the Eagle, I live in high country, The rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky. I am the Hawk, And there's blood on my feathers, But time is still turning, They soon will be dry. And all those who see me, And all who believe in me, Share in the freedom I feel when I fly! (instrumental portion) Come dance with the west wind, And touch on the mountain tops, Sail over the canyons, And up to the stars. And reach for the heavens, And hope for the future, And all that we can be, Not just what we are... (instrumental lead into finish)

The Crimson

ATREYU "Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses"
i feel it well up inside and robert smith lied, boys do cry abd with blood tears in my eyes i'm anne rice novel come to life i cant hide the monster anymore one can only feel desolate for so long until one starts to change into something the mirror doesnt recognize i metamorphosize the darkness has been biding its time to claim its latest victim fresh meat for carnal desires to become wut i became i viewed the sun for the last time will u still hold me when you see what i have done? will u still kiss me the same when you taste my victims blood? so crimson and red i fell it flowing fromm your lips crimson and red My heart is dead and so are you and it pulses through, the desire to change to deconstruct all of my past failings but where to begin becasue when you live is sin its hard to look at the saints without them reflecting their jet black auras back on you and all i have is hope my inner burn's not fading ill wipe the blood from my cheek and get on with my day (chorus) and all i have is hope and all i need is time to bury in pine under six feet of time the lies i told me about myslef claw my way out, pick the splinters from under my fingernails i wont loose hope, i wont give in just live and breathe, try not to die again(x3) (Chorus)x2 my heart is dead, and so are you!!

Old Admirals

AL STEWART "Past, Present & Future"
I can well recall the first time I ever put to sea, It was on the old "Calcutta" in eighteen fifty-three. I was just a lad of fourteen years, a midshipman to be To make my way in sailing ships of the Royal Navy. By the time that I was twenty-one I'd sailed the world around, Weathered storms in the China seas with the hatches battened down, And made my way by starlight off the coast of Newfoundland And dined on beer and herrings while the waves blew all around. I live in retirement now and through my window comes the sound Of seagulls and sets my mind remembering. The evening stars like memories sail far beyond the distant trees Way out across the open seas I hear them sing. Oh, the wooden ships they turned to iron and the iron ships to steel And shed their sails like autumn leaves with the turning of the wheel And I was given Captain's rank, and soon took under me the proudest ship that ever sailed for Queen and country. Ah, the old queen she passed away with the newborn century And I received my calling up to the admiralty. The sands ran through the hourglass each day more rapidly As we watched the growing of the fleets of High Germany. So at last the Great War blazed I waited with the passing days a call to arms that never came, writing letters. "I may be old now in your eyes, but all my years have made me wise, You don't see where the danger lies, oh call me back, call me back..." But the war, it ran its course they could find no use for me And I live in the country now, grandchildren on my knee And sometimes think in all this world the saddest thing to be Old admirals who feel the wind and never put to sea. Now just like you, I've sailed my dreams like ships across the sea And some of them they've come on rocks and some faced mutiny And when they're sunken one by one I'll join that company - Old admirals who feel the wind, and never put to sea.

Flying Sorcery

AL STEWART "Year Of The Cat"
With your photographs of Kitty Hawk And the biplanes on your wall You were always Amy Johnson From the time that you were small. No schoolroom kept you grounded While your thoughts could get away You were taking off in Tiger Moths Your wings against the brush-strokes of the day Are you there? On the tarmac with the winter in your hair By the empty hangar doors you stop and stare Leave the oil-drums behind you, they won't care Oh, are you there? Oh, you wrapped me up in a leather coat And you took me for a ride We were drifting with the tail-wind When the runway came in sight The clouds came up to gather us And the cockpit turned to white When I looked the sky was empty I suppose you never saw the landing-lights Are you there? In your jacket with the grease-stain and the tear Caught up in the slipstream of dare The compass roads will guide you anywhere, Oh, are you there? The sun comes up on Icarus as the night-birds sail away And lights the maps and diagrams That Leonardo makes You can see Faith, Hope and Charity As they bank above the fields You can join the flying circus You can touch the morning air against your wheels Are you there? Do you have a thought for me that you can share? Oh I never thought you'd take me unawares Just call me if you ever need repairs Oh, are you there?

Touch The Sky

ATC "Touch The Sky"
I'm dreaming about you I'm thinking about your smile When you were mine I still can remember Those moments so tender when We had just each other Looking back I 'll cherish forever Everything that we shared together Please don't let it go Why can't we touch the sky the way we use do you and I why can't we learn to find answers to what we feel inside take my hand don't look back, dont look back just try to understand tomorrow another sun will shine and a new day will bring love more time the picture is fading so long I have been waiting now for you to call I know it's not easy but do you believe one day time will heal our sorrow even when the wind is blowing stronger and it seems no one cares any longer I won't let you fall why can't we touch the sky the way we used to you and I why can't we learn to find answers to what we feel inside take my hand don't look back, dont look back just try to understand tomorrow another sun will shine and a new day will bring love one more time all that I have and all that I do it's nothing against the love I get from you you make me feel hole when im so far away so promise you 'll stay in my arms and tonight we'll touch the sky why can't we touch the sky the way we used to you and I why can't we learn to find answers to what we feel inside take my hand don't look back, dont look back just try to understand tomorrow another sun will shine and a new day will bring love one more time
