JONI MITCHELL lyrics - Song To A Seagull

The Dawntreader

Original and similar lyrics
Peridots and periwinkle blue medallions Gilded galleons spilled across the ocean floor Treasure somewhere in the sea and he will find where Never mind their questions there's no answer for The roll of the harbor wake The songs that the rigging makes The taste of the spray he takes And he learns to give He aches and he learns to live He stakes all his silver On a promise to be free Mermaids live in colonies All his seadreams come to me City satins left at home I will not need them I believe him when he tells of loving me Something truthful in the sea your lies will find you Leave behind your streets he said and come to me Come down from the neon nights Come down from the tourist sights Run down till the rain delights you You do not hide Sunlight will renew your pride Skin white by skin golden Like a promise to be free Dolphins playing in the sea All his seadreams come to me Seabird I have seen you fly above the pilings I am smiling at your circles in the air I will come and sit by you while he lies sleeping Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share A dream that you love someone A dream that the wars are done A dream that you tell no one but the grey sea They'll say that you're crazy And a dream of a baby Like a promise to be free Children laughing out to sea All his seadreams come to me

Happy Ever After

BEE GEES "High Civilization"
Though I know it's time to take you home Baby you and I are all alone We should take a moment of our own And look what we've got You could destroy this heart of mine I'm only trying to get by Hiding in the shadows of the night Holding you and knowing the wrong is right Show me some mercy You know what you're doin' is making me A happy man I shield you from the rain I've been slow to get you but I'm working As hard as I can (CHORUS) This time, it's what we believe is true And whether you believe I'm in love with you I gotta be sure that you say what you mean Is it only a dream to a teenage queen And all the years of tears and laughter We could go through Will it be happy ever after For me and you Heaven is a place inside of me Livin' with your heart as company Only you can change the way I feel And make it feel good Where there is love there is no crime I'm only tryin' to get mine Let me be the one to dry your eyes We can be the promise that never dies Light of an angel Blinded by the vision I'm wishin' we could travel on Stay with me baby Any less than an hour You be leavin' me lonely too long (CHORUS) (CHORUS) This time, it's what we believe is true And whether you believe I'm in love with you I gotta be sure that you say what you mean Is it only a dream to a teenage queen And you define the dream you're after Make it come true Will it be happy ever after Will it be happy ever after For me and you


I heard it in my sleep A voice more dead than old I thought I'd known the fear But then it touched my soul and said: You will pray for me Bow your head to me. It came for me at night And took me dream by dream To where everything is dark And no-one hears you scream Took everything I loved And turned love into pain It said I'm the prophecy And I'll make you believe in me. Sacrifice for me Be humility. It said: I'll make everyone pay I'll make everyone pay Some things you can't forget I'll make everyone pay Some things you can't forgive I'll make everyone pay. And so it comes to this Death or eternity? Or would you like to pay For all humanity? Do you believe in faith? Than choose. Heaven or Hell or me? A shadow on the sane The final treachery of God. You will kneel for me Lose your eyes for me. Betray the world for me Burn your soul for me. It said: I'll make everyone pay I'll make everyone pay Some things you can't forget I'll make everyone pay Some things you can't forgive I'll make everyone pay.

Toxic Shock

Mortification "Primitive Rhythm Machine"
[Verse 1] Over indulgence in substance you require To settle down, to feel sane, the his is in your mind Veins pumping, eyes lost, hideous life of pain It hates you now, the joy is gone, death crime insane.

[CHORUS] [BRIDGE] Pain, fear, despair Hope, it is the other way of life, you can be saved from the toxic shock, from the pain inside From a mind of loss, see the cross [Verse 3] Back street hangout, in drains you do await Body shacking, heart is racing, frantic for you man More suffering, excessive, ways have killed your mind You will crawl the gutters of filth to fix your pain [CHORUS] [Verse 4] Many will testify, that through the power of God All is broken, all is clean, God can heal your mind. Drug free, it can be your way Simply see that it is done, Christ is there to save. [CHORUS]

Walk Away

if you walk away i'll walk away first tell me which road you will take, i don't want to risk our paths crossing someday so you walk that way i walk this way and the future hangs over our heads and it moves with each current event until it falls all around like a cold steady rain just stay in when it's lookin' this way and the moon's layin' low in the sky forcin' everything metal to shine and the sidewalk holds diamonds like a jewelry store case they argue walk this way, no walk this way and laura's asleep on my bed as i'm leaving she wakes up and says i dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave baby don't go uh… come and there's kids playin' guns in the streets one's pointin' his tree-branch at me so i put my hands up and say “enough is enough if you walk away, i'll walk away' and he shot me dead i found a liquid cure for my landlocked blues they will pass away like a slow parade it's leavin' but i don't know how soon and the world's got me dizzy again you'd think after twenty-two years i'd be used to the spin and it only feels worse when i stay in one place so i am always pacin' or walkin' away and i'm drinkin' the ink from my pen and i'm balancin' history book up on my head and it all boils down to one quotable phrase “if you love something, give it away' a good woman would pick you apart a box full of suggestions for a possible heart and you might be offended, you might be afraid but don't walk away, don't walk away we made love on the livin' room floor with the noise in the background from a televised war and in that deafening pleasure i thought i heard someone say “if we walk away, they'll walk away' though greed is a bottomless pit an our freedom's a joke we're just taking a piss and the whole world must watch the sad comic display if you're still free start running away cuz we're comin' for ya gonna root ‘em out i've grown tired of holdin' this pose i feel more like a stranger each time I come home i'm makin' a deal with the devil's of fame sayin' “let me walk away…please' you'll be free child once you have died from the shackles of language and measurable time and then we can trade places play musical grace tellin' walk away, walk away so i'm up at dawn puttin' on my shoes i just wanna make a clean mistake i'm leavin' but i don't know where to no I'm leaving but i don't know where to

Justice is Blindfolded
