JOHN DENVER lyrics - Windsong

Spirit

Original and similar lyrics
(Denver/Henry) His spirit joined as so was formed ten thousand years ago. Between the swan and Hercules where even dark clouds glow. To live with grace, to ride the swell, to yet be strong of will. To love the wind, to learn its song, an empty space to fill. Apollo taught me to rhyme, Orpheus taught me to play. Andromeda cast down her sign and Vega lights my way. Smoke rings in a galaxy, an endless flight through time. Lyra gave her harp to him and left him free to climb. A winter's journey from the moon to reach the summer sun. To rise again, to sing for you a song that's yet unsung. Apollo taught me to rhyme, Orpheus taught me to play. Andromeda cast down her sign and Vega lights my way. His spirit joined as so was formed ten thousand years ago. Between the swan and Hercules where even dark clouds glow. To live with grace, to ride the swell, to yet be strong of will. To love the wind, to learn its song, an empty space to fill.

The Birds They Put In Cages

TINA ARENA "Notre Dam De Paris"
(feat. Garou) [Esmeralda] Will the birds they put in cages Ever ride upon the wind Will the children life outrages Ever learn to love again I lived my life like a swallow I arrived here with the springtime All the little streets I'd follow All the gypsy song were mine Where's my friend who rings the church bells Where are you my Quasimodo They will hang me as the light swells You can break these bars I know [Quasimodo] Esmeralda, have you left me Do you hide yourself away I have counted every hour I have missed you every day Have you left upon a journey With your handsome, shining soldier With no marriage, taking love free Like the gypsy girl you are Have you died out in the small streets With no prayer to get to Heaven There's a priest who counts tour heartbeats If he comes near, you must run [Esmeralda] You remember at the street fair [Quasimodo] When they hurt me on the great wheel [Esmeralda] When you begged, I gave you water [Quasimodo] At your feet I had to kneel Quasimodo and Esmeralda On that day our friendship started It will last as long as we live Once together never parted All we have to give we'll give Will the birds they put in cages Ever ride upon the wind Will the children life outrages Ever learn to love again

None Shall Pass

AESOP ROCK "None Shall Pass"
[Verse 1:] Flash that buttery, gold Jittery, zeitgeist, wither by the watering hole What a patrol... What are we to Heart Huckabee? Art fuckery, suddenly? Not enough young in his lung for the waterwings? Colorfully vulgar poacher, out of mulch Like, "I'm a pull the pulse out a soldier and bolt." (Fine...) Sign of the time we elapse When a primate climb up a spine and attach Eye for an eye by the bog life swamps and vines They get a rise out of frogs and flies So when a dogfight's hog-tied prize sort of costs a life The mouths water on a fork and knife And the allure isn't right No score on a war-torn beach Where the cash cow's actually beef Blood turns wine when it leak for police Like, "That's not a riot it's a feast. Let's eat!" [Chorus:] And I will remember your name and face On the day you are judged by "The Funhouse" cast And I will rejoice in your fall from grace With a cane to the sky like, "None shall pass." [Verse 2:] Now if you never had a day a snow cone couldn't fix You wouldn't relate to the rogue vocoder blitz How he spoke through a NoDoz motor on the fritz 'Cause he wouldn't play rollover fetch like a bitch And express no regrets, though he isn't worth a homeowner's piss To the jokers who pose by the glitz (Fine...) Sign of the swine in the swarm When a king is a whore who comply and conform Miles outside of the eye of the storm With a siphon to lure out a prize and award While avoiding the vile and bizarre that is violence and war True blue triumph is more! Like, "Wait, let him snake up out of the centerfold." "Let it break the walls of Jericho." "Ready? Go!" Sat where the old, cardboard city folk Swap tales with heads like every other penny throw [Chorus:] And I will remember your name and face On the day you are judged by "The Funhouse" cast And I will rejoice in your fall from grace With a cane to the sky like, "None shall pass." [Verse 3:] Okay, woke to a grocery list Goes like this: Duty and death Anyone object, come stand in the way You could be my little Snake River Canyon today And I ran with a chain of commands And a jet pack strapped where the backstab lands if it can (Fine...) Sign of the vibe in the crowd When I cut a belly open to find what climb out That's quite a bit of gusto he muster up To make a dark horse rush like, "Enough's enough!" It must've... struck a nerve so they huff and puff Till all the king's men fluster and clusterfuck And it's a beautiful thing To my people who keep an impressive wingspan even when the cubicle shrink You got to pull up the intruder by the root of the weed NY chew through the machine... [Chorus:] And I will remember your name and face On the day you are judged by "The Funhouse" cast And I will rejoice in your fall from grace With a cane to the sky like, "None shall pass."

What You Are

JEWEL "Sweet And Wild"
I’m driving around town Kinda bored with the windows rolled down See a girl on the bus stop bench Dressed to draw attention Hoping everyone will stare If she don’t stand out she thinks she’ll disappear Wish I could hold her, tell her, show her What she wants is already there A star is a star It doesn’t have to try to shine Water will fall A bird just knows how to fly You don’t have to tell a flower how to bloom Or light how to fill up a room You already are what you are And what you are is beautiful Heard a story the other day Took place at the local VA A father talking to his dying son This was his conversation “It’s not supposed to be like this You can’t go first I can’t handle it” The boy said “Dad now don’t you cry, Remember when I was a child what you used to tell me when I’d ask why?” (You’d say) Gravity is gravity It doesn’t try to pull you down Stone is stone It can’t help but hold its ground The wind just blows, though you can’t see It’s everywhere like I’ll always be You already are what you are And what you are is strong enough Look in the mirror Now that’s another story to tell I give love to others But I give myself hell I’d have to tell myself “In every scene there’s a perfect plan” Everything I hoped to be I already am A flower is a flower It doesn’t have to try to bloom And light is light Just knows how to fill a room And dark is dark So the stars have a place to shine The tide goes out So it can come back another time Goodbye makes a love so sweet And love is love so it can teach us We already are what we are And what we are is beautiful And strong enough And good enough And bright enough

If You Go Away

TERRY JACKS
If you go away On this summer day Then you might as well Take the sun away All the birds that flew In the summer sky When our love was new And our hearts were high And the day was young And the nights were long And the moon stood still For the night bird's song If you go away If you go away If you go away But if you stay I'll make you a day Like no day has been Or will be again We'll sail the sun We'll ride on the rain We'll talk to the trees We'll fly with the wind But if you go away When I love you so There'll be nothing left In the world, you know Just an empty room Full of empty space Like the empty look I see on your face If you go away If you go away If you go away But if you stay I'll make you a day Like no day has been Or will be again We'll sail the sun We'll ride on the rain We'll talk to the trees We'll fly with the wind But if you go away If you go away If you go away
