Wolves

Original and similar lyrics
You got a peaceful mind and that makes me glad Something I can't afford, something I've never had Is that all I'm here for ? Is it all I'm here for ? Can't be all I'm here for Keeping the wolves from the door You got a tender heart and that's a good way to be Conversation with you is like a stone skipping over a calm sunset sea Is that all I'm here for ? Is it all I'm here for ? Can't be all I'm here for Keeping the wolves from the door Poor poor pitiful me Got nowhere to hide How can I ever be sure That's the wind howling outside ? And I love you just as much as I always did But I'm a fly in a bottle, got my own fingers on the lid Is that all I'm here for ? Is it all I'm here for ? Can't be all I'm here for Keeping the wolves from the door Poor poor pitiful me Got nowhere to hide How can I ever be sure ? That's the wind howling outside And I love you just as much as I always did But I'm a fly in a bottle, got my own fingers on the lid Is that all I'm here for ? Is it all I'm here for ? Can't be all I'm here for Keeping the wolves from the door Keeping the wolves from the door...

Shadows

ALISON KRAUSS
Let me reach out love and touch you, let me hold you for a while I've been all around the world and how I long to see you smile There's a shadow on the moon and the waters here below Do not shine the way they should and I love you, just in case you didn't know Let it go, let it happen like it happened once before It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone And if you do not believe me come and gaze upon the shadow at your door Won't you lie down by me baby, run your fingers through my hands I've been all around the town and still I do not understand Is it me or is it you, or the shadow of a dream Is it wrong to be in love, could it be the finest love I've ever seen Set it free, let it happen like it happened once before It's a bitter wind and it chills me to the bone And if you do not believe me, come and gaze upon the shadow at your door Please kiss me gently, darling, where the river runs away From the mountains in the springtime on a blue and windy day Where there's beauty all around as the shades of nights grow deep As the morning stars grow dim they will find us in the shadows fast asleep Let it go, let it happen like it happened once before It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone And if you do not believe, me come and gaze upon the shadow at your door

I Will Find A Way (The Song Of Emmanuel)

JASON GRAY "Christmas Stories: Repeat The Sounding Joy"
At the end of this rundown tenement hall Is the room of a girl I know And she cowers behind all the dead bolt locks Afraid of the outside world How should I come to the one I love? I will find a way Many thieves and collectors have used that door But they only brought her shame So she won’t even open it anymore Still I will find a way I could call out her name with love through the walls But condemnation is all she hears I could break down the door and take her into my arms But she might die from the fear So how should I come to the one I love? I will find a way, I will find a way How should I come to the one I love? I will find a way No hiding place ever kept her safe So she hides inside herself Now to reach her heart the only way Is to hide in there as well I will hide in there as well She gave up on love waiting for a change But a change is coming soon ‘Cause how could she not love the helpless babe Who is waking in her womb? I found a way, I found a way… She’ll know I am coming before I am here When she hangs her head she’ll see me there And then when I come she won’t run away All the beauty and joy will return to her face And what of the loneliness? Now it is gone Lost in the bond of a mother and son Every sin that she suffered at the hands of men Every single disgrace will be washed clean again I will love her completely and when I am grown I will carry her out of that tenement room I am doing a new thing and soon you will see I am coming among you and my name shall be Emmanuel, Emmanuel I have come to take you home

Some Days Are Made For Rain

AARON NEVILLE "The Tattooed Heart"
We held each other 'til the moon was high We waved that sleepy little town good bye And driving off together we crossed our hearts Living for the promise that love would keep us honest I said I'd be yours if you'd be mine We were crazy baby And every day the sun was sure to shine But it tried and tried Sometimes the wind makes a sudden change And some days are made for rain We fixed a tire and we drove like hell We kissed like fire in a cheap motel I never felt the hunger so bad before Holding you beside me Walls came down inside me And I thought I was yours and you were mine That was crazy baby I was sure the sun would always shine But it tried and tried Sometimes the wind makes a sudden change And some days are made for rain You want to talk about love I'll tell you all about love Nothing but trouble On top of falling One day you're walking on air Next day you look and there's no one there She never cared She never cared Now I've been sleeping with the TV on I get so tired of wondering where you've gone You tore across my heart across like a hurricane I'm counting up the damage Trying hard to manage I thought I was yours and you were mine That was crazy baby And I was sure the sun would always shine But take a look outside Sometimes a wind makes a sudden change Here comes those clouds and they're full of pain Some days are made for rain Some days are made for rain Let it pour outside Some days are made for rain Some days are made for rain

'Til I See You Again

JIM BRICKMAN
The holy voices speaking Words I can't recall and I do still believe If I believe in anything at all Are You here in me and are You here I thought I saw You walking Down my a street yesterday I thought I heard Your voice Though I could not hear just what You say And I am waiting And I'm waiting here for You I'm whispering Your name I am telling to the wind Your love has brought me here 'Til I see You again I am opening the door I will let this moment in Your love will find me here 'Til I see You again And I can still remember As I write down these words The music in Your voice And the silence of the universe And I am singing Now I'm singing here for You I'm whispering Your name I am telling to the wind Your love has brought me here 'Til I see You again I am opening the door I will let this moment in Your love will find me here 'Til I see You again I am whispering Your name I am telling to the wind Your love can find me here 'Til I see You again I am opening the door I will let this moment in Your love can find me here 'Til I see You again

Parameters

ANI DIFRANCO "Knuckledown"
Thirty-three years go by And not once do you come home To find a man sitting in your bedroom That is A man you don't know Who came a long way to deliver one very specific message: Lock your back door, you idiot However invincible you imagine yourself to be You are wrong Thirty-three years go by And you loosen the momentum of teenage nightmares Your breasts hang like a woman's And you don't jump at shadows anymore Instead you may simply pause to admire Those that move with the grace of trees Dancing past streetlights And you walk through your house without turning on lamps Sure of the angle from door to table From table to staircase Sure of the number of steps Seven to the landing Two to turn right Then seven more Sure you will stroll serenely on the moving walkway of memory Across your bedroom And collapse with a sigh onto your bed Shoes falling Thunk thunk Onto the floor And there will be no strange man Suddenly all that time sitting there Sitting there on what must be the prize chair In your collection of uncomfortable chairs With a wild look in his eyes And hands that you cannot see Holding what? You do not know So sure are you of the endless drumming rhythm of your isolation That you are painfully slow to adjust If only because Yours is not that genre of story Still and again, life cannot muster the stuff of movies No bullets shattering glass Instead fear sits patiently Fear almost smiles when you finally see him Though you have kept him waiting for thirty-three years And now he has let himself in And he has brought you fistfuls of teenage nightmares Though you think you see, in your naivete That he is empty handed And this brings you great relief At the time New as you are, really, to the idea that Even after you've long since gotten used to the parameters They can all change While you're out one night having a drink with a friend Some big hand may be turning a big dial Switching channels on your dreams Until you find yourself lost in them And watching your daily life with the sound off And of course having cautiously turned down the flame under your eyes There are more shadows around everything Your vision a dim flashlight that you have to shake all the way to the outhouse Your solitude elevating itself like the spirit of the dead Presiding over your supposed repose Not really sleep at all Just a sleeping position and a series of suspicious sounds A clanking pipe A creaking branch The footfalls of a cat All of this and maybe The swish of the soft leather of your intruder's coat As you walk him step by step back to the door Having talked him down off the ledge of a very bad idea Soft leather, big feet, almond eyes The kinds of details the police officer would ask for later With his clipboard And his pistol In your hallway
