Hello all!

Music has always been my 'thing', right, playing it, listening to it, getting lost in it, being inspired by it to create art and re-create my Soul. It seems I always have this synchronistic dance going on with songs that flow in and out of my life.

So, I am inspired (by another thread where Mr Martin quoted a song I found myself drawn to at that particular time) to share some lyrics of songs that have guided my way...I'll start with a couple and then add more as time goes....please add your own as I hate singing alone!

MollyB

Sister Awake by The Tea Party

when the winter was over
she returned there to find him
and her memories filled her with light

she remembered the beauty
she remembered desire
and her memories filled her with light

i am the sun in the flame
cold from the flame turns away
and in these winds came a change
she awakes...

sister walk through these fields of delight
I want you to know
desperation's the tenderest trap
so gently you go
what will it take
sister awake

when this beautiful cult of desire
has left you for dead
isolation will cradle the lies
of things left unsaid
what will it take
sister awake

and you'll look to the heavens above
and taste it's deceit
these temptations have blinded desires
to sleep at their feet
what will it take
sister awake

and you'll hear them call out your name
invoking the fates
chances are you've traveled too far
in stirring their hate
so what will it take
my sister awake


Emerald by The Tea Party

Confess what you crave
a life without pain
you'd kill for the taste
But the hurt still remains

And still they don't know who you are
They'll still never know who you are

Just be still my emerald
I'll be waiting for you
Do exactly what you're told
I'll be waiting for you

Ashamed by the threats
you pierce the embrace
afraid and alone
In a dark lonely place

Just be still my emerald
I'll be waiting for you
Do exactly what you're told
I'll be waiting for you

did you always want to be?
did they try to steal your soul?
did they hurt you with deceit?
can't you come in from the cold?
be still my emerald

I'll be waiting for you
do exactly what you're told
I'll be waiting for you
to come in from the cold
I'll be waiting for you
Be still my emerald
I'll be waiting for you...

Kay-0, Beesting:
     Even though I am New Age, Ambient and Eel-lec-tron-ick, I still love this song by The Turtles:

"Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)
----The Turtles, circa 19??, I honestly don't remember.
Hope you remember dat one....if not, that's what Google is for!

Okay Rose.....think, Goog, search and post! I know the songs but I do not remember all the words by any stretch of the imagination!
Would you like sadder song....something done by the Beau Brummels, America's answer to the British Invasion...I thought the Brit groups to be far superior to the Americans at one time.
But I like this song:


 JUST A LITTLE
Beau Brummels

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
I can't stay
Yes I know
You know I
Hate to go
But goodbye
Love was sweet
I was kind
Never mean
So I'll cry just a little cause I love you so
And I'll die just a little cause I have to go
Away...
Can't you see
How I feel
When I say
Love's unreal
So goodbye
It's been sweet
Even though
Incomplete
So I'll cry just a little cause I love you so
And I'll die just a little cause i have to go
Away...

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

Every night
I still hear
Oh your sigh's
Very near
Now it's gone
Gone away
As I once
Heard you say
Now I'll cry just a little cause I love you so
And I'll die just a little cause i have to go
Away...
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!


P&L,
Marty and Weepy Cats, Luck, Popp and Siss

oh by golly and begosh, now the poetic muse knoweth not where to post, here, Poetry for the Soul, or the Music videos with a spiritual message ... oh confusion confusion ...

as Coleridge is reputed to have said:

WINDMILLS OF YOUR MIND
SUNG BY NOEL HARRISON
FILM: THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR


Round, like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnaval balloon
Like a carousell that's turning
Running rings around the moon

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of it's own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream.

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle your head
Why did summer go so quickly
Was it something that I said
Lovers walking allong the shore,
Leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand

Pictures hanging in a hallway
And a fragment of this song
Half remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circle that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of this song
Half remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Lovely-ness! Thanks for posting Marty and Paul!

Here's another, I don't know, just something about this song:

To Sir, With Love - Lulu

Those schoolgirl days, of telling tales and biting nails are gone,
But in my mind,
I know they will still live on and on,
But how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try,

If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters,
That would soar a thousand feet high,
To Sir, with Love

The time has come,
For closing books and long last looks must end,
And as I leave,
I know that I am leaving my best friend,
A friend who taught me right from wrong,
And weak from strong,
That's a lot to learn,
What, what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start,
But I, would rather you let me give my heart,
To Sir, with Love

And I could never leave out The Doors..

Not to Touch the Earth

Not to touch the earth
Not to see the sun
Nothing left to do, but
Run, run, run
Let's run
Let's run

House upon the hill
Moon is lying still
Shadows of the trees
Witnessing the wild breeze
C'mon baby run with me
Let's run

Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run

The mansion is warm, at the top of the hill
Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs
And you won't know a thing till you get inside

Dead president's corpse in the driver's car
The engine runs on glue and tar
Come on along, not goin' very far
To the East to meet the Czar

Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run

Whoa!

Some outlaws lived by the side of a lake
The minister's daughter's in love with the snake
Who lives in a well by the side of the road
Wake up, girl, we're almost home

Ya, c'mon!

We should see the gates by mornin'
We should be inside the evenin'

Sun, sun, sun
Burn, burn, burn
Soon, soon, soon
Moon, moon, moon
I will get you
Soon!
Soon!
Soon!

I am the Lizard King
I can do anything

and another song from The Doors...

Wishful, Sinful

Wishful crystal
Water covers everything in blue
Coolin' water

Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Can't escape the blue

Magic risin'
Sun is shinin' deep beneath the sea
But not enough for you and me and sunshine
Love to hear the wind cry

Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Can't escape the blue

Love to hear the wind cry
Love to hear you cry, yeah, yeah

Hi Paul,

However you want to do it...if you feel only a smidgen of the lyrics need to be posted, then I am sure your intutition is telling you the absolute right thing! I look forward to more...and along the windmills theme...


Windmills - Toad the Wet Sprocket

I spend too much time raiding windmills
We go side by side
Laughing until its right

Theres something that you won't show
Waiting where the light goes
Take the darkest hour-break it open
Water to repair what we have broken

There's something that you won't show
Waiting where the light goes
And anyway the wind blows
It's all worth waiting for

Pull on the borders to lighten the load
Tell all the passengers we're going home

I spend too much time seeking shelter
World without end couldn't hold her

Theres something that you won't show
Waiting where the light goes
And anyway the wind blows
Its all worth waiting for
Anyway the wind blows

"Thoughts Of A Dying Atheist" Also by Muse Click here for YouTube Video

Eerie whispers
trapped beneath my pillow
won't let me sleep
your memories

and I know you're in this room
I'm sure I heard you sigh
Floating in between
where our worlds collide

scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see
and it scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see

and I know the moment's near
and there's nothing you can do
look through a faithless eye
are you afraid to die?

it scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see
and it scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see

It scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see
and it scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see

"Stockholm Syndrome" By Muse Click here for Video

I won't stand in your way
Let your hatred grow
And she'll scream
And she'll shout
And she'll pray
And she had a name
Yeah she had a name

And I won't hold you back
Let your anger rise
And we'll fly
And we'll fall
And we'll burn
No one will recall
No one will recall

This is the last time I'll abandon you
And this is the last time I'll forget you
I wish I could

Look to the stars
Let hope grow in your eyes
And we'll love
And we'll hate
And we'll die
All to no avail
All to no avail

This is the last time I'll abandon you
And this is the last time I'll forget you
I wish I could

This is the last time I'll abandon you
And this is the last time I'll forget you
I wish I could
I wish I could

"Enjoy The Silence" by Depeche Mode - Click here for Video (right click for to open in new window/ or tab)
Words like violence

Break the silence

Come crashing in

Into my little world

Painful to me

Pierce right through me

Can't you understand

Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only harm

Vows are spoken

To be broken

Feelings are intense

Words are trivial

Pleasures remain

So does the pain

Words are meaningless

And forgettable

All I ever wanted

Enjoy the silence

I cannot help it, I am a total music junky..... i could give up my vision, but please do not take away my sound. This song is truly one to bring about metaphysical journey. So sorry i have not had much time to devote to the pc while family issues are going on. Plus is my b-day tomorrow and we are celebrating today. Fun fun... I am going to herbal store to get some mugwort, licorish root, and maybe some nightshade. Making a sache for under my pillow.

These lyrics (amd music) hit home with me. Click here for video, right click and open in new window. Remember this video and long beginning before the sound starts. Worth the wait....
This song hits deep. Can be sexual too.... but I like the spiritual aspect of it, connected with the human soul.

"World In My Eyes" By Depeche Mode
Let me take you on a trip

Around the world and back

And you won't want have to move

You just sit still

Now let your mind do the walking

And let my body do the talking

Let me show you the world in my eyes

I'll take to the highest mountain

To the depths of the deepest sea

We won't need a map, believe me

Now let my body do the moving

And let my hands do the soothing

Let me show you the world in my eyes

That's all there's

Let me put you on a ship

On a long, long trip

Your lips close to my lips

All the islands in the ocean

All the heavens in the motion

Let me show you the world in my eyes

That's all there's

Nothing more than you can touch now

That's all there's

Let me show you the world in my eyes

When you're falling awake

and you take

stock of the new day

and you hear your voice croak

as you choke

on what you need to

Say

Don't you laugh

Don't you sigh

Lick the tear from your eye

We will meet in the sweet

Light of dawn

Life's a long song

But the tune ends too soon

For us all

Thanks, Jill! I haven't heard anything by Muse before, but how I love Depeche Mode!

Paul - I wish I had written it! It's by toad the wet sprocket...called 'Windmills'. I think off the album Dulcinea (a la Don Qioxote). Speaking of that...a song for a knight...

The Impossible Dream - Man of La Mancha

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

Jimmy Paige wanted to leave the group and play with a lesser known group...which later on became Led Zeppelin, need I say more? But Jeff Beck joined and kept the group alive for a while longer. Keith Reilf and Jim "Scooter" McCarty wanted the group to stay alive, and with the success of "Stroll On" in the Antonioni(sp?) movie, "Blow Up", they managed to survive together to record one more hit......and Jeff Beck sang it in all the other bands he ever played in......


Sick at heart and lonely,
Deep in dark despair.
Thinking one thought only-
"Where is she, tell me where?"
And if she says to you
That she don't love me,
Please give her my message.
Tell her of my plea.

And I know
That if she had me back again,
I would never make her sad.
I've got a heart full of soul.

She's been gone such a long time,
Longer than I can bear.
But if she says she wants me,
Tell her that I'll be there.
And if she says to you
She don't love me,
Please give her my message.
Tell her of my plea.

And I know
That if she had me back again,
I would never make her sad.
I've got a heart full of soul

And so, to the YardBirds, who quite adequately expressed that sense of love, so many years ago!

Peace,

I am a hard rocker..... Alternative Musics.... but they must relate mostly somehow to spiritualism.

Here is one I really love: click here for vid

By Dinosaur Jr. "I feel the pain"

I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
Is it up to me ?
You won't wait to see
Screwed us both again
About as close as you dare
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
I feel the pain of everyone
Then I feel nothing
Is it up to me ?
You won't wait to see
Screwed us yet again
About as close as you dare
Hey now, take it back
Get off me, you're sad
Trailin' on your scene
Just try and keep it clean

This song reminds me of how we bounce back and forth.... try to help, but most won't accept it.

OHHHH....and also the lines that I have heard kids all over the world sing...though they may have had no idea what they were singing........but they can imitate our language...and I think they truly know the meaning......it is a refrain passage from a Grass Roots song...."But a little gold ring"......and if the song pops into your head at this point,you are truly a romantic, and should dedicate your life to ethereal things!

"The sound of your footsteps
Telling me that you're near
Your soft gentle motion, baby
Brings out the need in me that no-one can hear, except

In my midnight confessions
When I tell all the world that I love you
In my midnight confessions
When I say all the things that I want to
I love you

But a little gold ring you wear on your hand makes me understand
There's another before me, you'll never be mine
I'm wasting my time

Staggering through the daytime
Your image on my mind
Passing so close beside you baby
Sometimes the feelings are so hard to hide, except

In my midnight confessions
When I tell all the world that I love you
In my midnight confessions
When I say all the things that I want to
I love you




In my midnight confessions
When I tell all the world that I love you
Na na-nana na na na-na
Na na-nana na na na-na

Hat's off to the Grass Roots for singing the most memorable line in rock n' roll history.......

Peace and Ringtones,

"Hollow Life" By KoRn

Feeding the fall
I can't help but desire of falling down this time
Deep in this hole am I making
I can't escape
Falling all this time

We come to this place
Falling through time
Living a hollow life
Always we're taking
Waiting for signs
Hollow life

Fearing to fall
And still the ground below me calls
Falling down this time
Ripping apart all these things I have tried to stop
Falling down this time

We come to this place
Falling through time
Living a hollow life
Always we're taking
Waiting for signs
Hollow life

Is there ever any wonder
Why we look to the sky
Searching space
Asking why?
All alone
where is God?
Looking down
We don't know

We fall in space
We can't look down
Death may come
Peace I have found
What to say
Am I alive?
Am I asleep
Or have I died?

(Haunting me)

We fall in space
We can't look down
Death may come
Peace I have found

(Something takes a part of me)

What to say
Am I alive?
Am I asleep
We fall down

We come to this place
Falling through time
Living a hollow life
Always we're taking
Waiting for signs
Hollow life

This is actually the theme song to my radio show.... don't forget to right click to listen in another tab or window. Click here for Poe's "Haunted"

And for the lyrics

"Haunted" By Poe
 

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...
Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won't you say something
I need to get my bearings
I'm lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Hallways... always

I'll always want you
I'll always need you
I'll always love you

And I will always miss you

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Come here
No I won't say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I'm gonna make it leave
Come here
I've got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears

I'm haunted
(By the lives that I have loved)
I'm haunted
(By the promises I've made)
I'm haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune

Ba da pa pa...

I've seen the Grass Roots live 7 or 8 times! They rock!

"Lady pleasure with the sunshine eyes
Draw your magick circle to the ruin of my size.."

Interesting thing, I can't find the rest of the lyrics to the above song anywhere (Lady Pleasure - The Grass Roots). Used to have it on cd but had to get rid of about 900 cd's when I moved cross country. I miss that song.

It starts:

"I could tell by the way she smiled
she intended to stay awhile
She walked through the door in her cowboy hat
sat on the floor with a siamese cat
She said it with her eyes
everything's fine..."

I remember a few other scant lyrics here and there like...

"The world has a rhythm all its own
You can tell by the seasons
See it in the sun..."

Ahhh...what a song....what a nice feeling to remember...

Here is a song that I can relate to, but not to the full extent. It's about a girl who is raped by her own father and the outcome is an OBE. She has out of body experiences to cope with such trauma. Her spiritual side took over...... to save her life. And we wonder why people experience amnesia, post traumatic stress syndrome, etc.

Here is the youtube video....

Lyrics

"Sleep" by Stabbing Westward

She's been here so many times before
She can't remember
When she last felt anything at all
But this fear and anger
She stares intently at the door,
Listens for his footsteps
She knows exactly what's in store
And the knowing makes it worse

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

When he calls her daddy's little girl,
She doesn't hear him
When he crushes her
She can't feel
Her screams are silent
Hides in the corner of her mind
Where she plays contentetly
She leaves this night more far behind
She escapes inside her dreams

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

.... Jill ... (joke, thought I'd better warn you - do atheists die, or merely keep coming back until they've learnt a little more .... ?

....ah, MollyB how nice to be noticed and Don Quixote too - coincidentally I had coffee in the cafe Don Quixote in Holborn yesterday morning at 8.45 am; not wishing to accrue too much, I fear that it was Marty and Sunflower who were kind enough to doff me 'Sirra', or some such; I am a mere vessel for whatever the Great Spirit, blessed be S/He chooses to pour into me ...

.... and doesn't D-Q all end in disillusionment and tears ... though maybe this is a chance to right that wrong ...

Good question Paul, I have absolutely no idea what happens to an Atheist when they die.... but i sure bet they are surprised when they still exist. LOL

I think it would be scary to think, this is it. That is all..... game over for good. How sad.

I have seen to much, to know better. Or I am crazy....If so, i prefer to remain crazy!

But, God has shown me proof..... It's not an illusion. People walk earth still, because divine intervention happened through me (i was the interpreter). After that, all questions were answered.

Music.... it has answers too..... notice how some remind us of exact events? Meant not to forget? I can never forget some things, because of beautiful music.

Music, they say, is the food of love : and all love comes from the Divine.

The Sufi sage, I think it was, Hazrat Inayat Khan, wrote that everything in creation is music, as indeed it is, isn't it, through the Eternal Hum that vibrates through us all ...

.. and the Word that was in the Beginning had its own sound, must have !

Hello Sir Paul (you, not McCartney!),

I guess I always felt Don Quixote (and the show Man of La Mancha for that matter) ended in triumph. Certainly tears, but I felt no disillusionment. After all, can't we call see giants in windmills at times? We are all on a quest of the Spirit and can never really be disillusioned unless we buy into the illusion itself.

Also, speaking of everything is music, the seven modes of music was a passion of mine for awhile. Corresponding to the seven ancient planets, each with it's own musical vibration, everything that exists is sound. The Universe is an eternal symphony and life is a dance.

Reminds me...

"As the world keeps turning,
and we keep on searching,
for seven circles twisting
round these moments of our lives.
Dancing on the edge of night.
Everything we've lost is coming back again.
All I see,
will always be."

---"Seven Circles" The Tea Party

Ok...enough waxing poetic...gotta get to work! Nice talking to you again, Paul.

Hi Jill!

Since you are a rock lover like me, with a Metaphysical twist, you really would LOVE The Tea Party! If you get a chance, check them out!!! They have been a very distinct, beautiful part of my path.

Take care and I hope all is well!

Reminds me of the end of "Camelot" (Lerner and Lowe) when King Arthur is so bewildered. Everything has gone SO wrong, and he feels the new order of chivalry he worked so hard to create must have been for nothing. The roundtable is dead, the knights are bent on revenge, his son hates him, he has to fight Lance at sunrise, etc, etc. Then, through young Tom of Warrick, he knows what he has done will be remembered throughout time, and he knows everything is exactly as it was supposed to be.

The end shot of that movie, with Arthur standing on the hill and the sun coming up behind him....gets me everytime...

Dear MollyB - wow, yes... sounds like we are kindred spirits here ....

King Arthur is never far from my mind, or soul, or whatever that part of us is that seeks to make sense of our lives & journeys ... so then have you read,

The Once and Future King ? ( T H White)

I was born not far from where Malory did his scribbling ... I could talk for hours about all of that stuff ...

Excalibur the film wasn't at all bad I felt, nor was, First Knight (Richard Gere & Sean Connery) ... I also have some poems ...

I read that book so many years ago...is that not the one where at the end Arthur is talking to Pelinore about (paraphrased here) 'we are all less than a drop in the great blue motion of the endless sea, but some of the drops sparkle..' I do not have the book anymore as I gave my entire Arthurian collection to my brother when I moved.

It's interesting we are talking about this now. I was going through some photographs recently and found a picture of 2 paintings I had done 6 years or so ago. One was Arthur and one was Guenevere and they were ghosts. When they were hung them side by side their faces conjoined became as one face and the lake and the castle were in the background. I always loved those paintings and I have no idea what happened to them! My move across country is pretty much a blur because I went from a house full of books, records, cd's, paintings and other various objects down to two suitcases and a box in less than six weeks. My stuff is scattered all over the world, lol!

I fear I compare all film versions of the Arthurian legend to 1967's Camelot! One of my favorite movies of all time. Richard Harris has always been a favorite of mine and he just shines as Arthur in the movie and also in the stage production (which they broadcast on the BBC years ago). The speech at the end of Act I...wow...it's as though I'm really watching Arthur and it just blows me away.

And in the interest of thread continuity....

"In that dawn
in that gloom,
more than love met its doom.
In the dying candle's gleem
came the sundown of a dream.
Guenevere
Guenevere
In that dim,
mournful year.
Saw the men she
held most dear,
go to war for
Guenevere..."

How so fascinating MollyB ....

I have tried to watch Camelot the film many times, but could not get through it - aroused too many tears ... Richard Harris was a great (Welsh, I thnk) actor ... and his, Mac Arthur Park was good too

Your paintings sound magical ,lovely; shame you lost the creative arena of others (sorry, could not find other words for that, if they are wrong, pls forgive me)

I have the T H White so will check the words. Let me know if yu'd like to see any of my Arthur poems, but would not want to spoil your own picture (s), at all x

Namaste to you, everyone and dear

Arthur

.... Checked .... dear MollyB ... now before I go on, did you know, I had forgotten there was a follow on to Once & Future .. K .., which was, 'The Book of Merlyn', also by T H White .... now as to last lines .... we do not want to give away last lines to those who might not wish to know them, perhaps not having read the full texts, yet, so, a warning, here they come, after the space below ...







The Once and Future King:

Last paragraph:

THE BEGINNING

(yes, that is the last one, though the preceding paragraph does not seem to precede it, and now, how funny, 'cos we are citing the text, as, Merlyn, in the story, lives, ie, from forwards to backwards (which is how he knows the future ...))

If you'd like the preceding paragraph, happy to supply - it is all so wonderful, though sombre, as I said)

The Book of Merlyn:
Last paragraph:

" Here ends the book of the Onetime King, written with much toil and effort between the years 1936 and 1942, when the nations were striving in fearful warfare. Here also begins - if perchance a man may in future time survive the pestilence and continue the task he has begun - the hope of the Future King. Pray for Thomas Malory, Knight, and his humble disciple, who now voluntarily lays aside his books to fight for his kind.

Hey Molly,
I am listening to The tea Party right now. Listening to Heaven Coming Down, not bad, will have to listen to a couple others too.  But yes... definitely up my alley. Thank You!

I am getting sick now. Figures.... have white spots all over my throat. Fun fun.... Dang it.
Already had the tonsils out, so who knows. Cannot swallow very well.... dang it.

Here is a song I absolutely love:

Conjure One - Extraordinary Ways  <-------right click to open vid in new window

Lyrics

What I have is nothing to my name
No property to speak of
And no trophy for my game
Intangible and worthless
My assets on the page
My coffers are empty
Any offer of safety has faded away
But what I have
What I have is

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God, I'm lucky, so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be
'Cause what I have (what I have)
Means so very little to this world
A promise that I kept and a bridge that I saved before it burned
The sacrifice that I made
Brought me to my knees
A choice that cost me everything and set somebody else free
But what I have
Is the value that you see in these things

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God I'm lucky, so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be
'Cause what I have
Is the value that you see in these things

And everytime I forget those things you bring them right back to me

With your patience
When I'm blinding mad
And your passion
When I'm really, really bad
And your eyes
Taking in everything I am
And your body and soul and the way that you know
How I treasure you

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God I'm so lucky
So much luckier than I ever thought I'd be

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

I actually have the old movie, the Raven, but I am also a Byrds fan.... with Rogar McGuinn, they sang some really great songs like Turn Turn Turn, Mr. Tamborine Man, and one I absolutely loved just as much:

Eight Miles High.....By the Byrds. <---- click to watch

Lyrics

 Eight miles high and when you touch down
You’ll find that it’s stranger than known
Signs in the street that say where you’re going
Are somewhere just being their own

Nowhere is there warmth to be found
Among those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town known for it’s sound
In places small faces unbound

Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living some standing alone

We cannot forget about Tom Petty, While I am not crazy about the lyrics.... PLEASE watch the video... it's uber kewl. Paul reminded me about this one because he said ASK ALICE..... Well, here is Alice again, down the rabbit hole. It's so cute, twisted and funny, with a good message that say's if it doesn't feel right, chances are IT's NOT. lol

Click here for video

"Don't come around here no more" by Tom Petty

Chorus
Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
Whatever you're looking for
Hey, don't come around here no more

I've given up, I've given up --
I've given up on waiting any longer
I've given up, on this love getting stronger

I don't feel you anymore
You darken my door
Whatever you're looking for
Hey, don't come around here no more

I've given up, I've given up
I've given up, you tangle my emotions
I've given up, honey please admit it's over

(Repeat Chorus)

Stop walking down my street
Who do you expect to meet?
Whatever you're looking for

Remember we had the 'Turn turn' discussion before .. just 'cos i am old fogey and culture carrier I always have this urge just to remind us of its basing itself on Ecclesiastes .... ok ... why do I have to do that, you may ask, boring old me....

... well ... i think I do it for any number of reasons ... some are ..

- to ensure that nothing is lost of our and other cultures traditions ...

- to ensure proper linkages of ideas and acknoweldgement of others' ideas

- to evoke ideas as to how linkages develop and continue chains of spirit, as in such themes as has been called, The Perennial Philosophy

- 'cos I think it is just plain interesting how ideas do form, develop, might be forgotten, then resurface ...

an example of the last one is how psychoanalysis based itself on hypnotism, overtly, but then, in Jung's development, turned right back to ancient teachings of alchemy, yoga, Taoism, and the Christian confessional ... and now we understand even more, with othere researchers (eg, Eliade), who made links to depth psychology and shamanic practices ... which predate most if not all of our known religions, and perhaps even speech (hence the cave paintings in Lacieux, etc ..)

.. better stop there .. sorry to go on ..

My, my, my...I don't know what to comment on first....here's a list...

-I think Richard Harris is Irish if memory serves
-'MacArthur Park'...another synchronistic song for me (long story, lol)

"There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
and never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
after all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one."

-The Tea Party took their name from the "get-togethers" (called "Tea Parties") of Ginsberg, Kerouac and Burroughs. The authors would smoke hash, create, read poetry and touch heaven I am sure. Sounds like my kind of party...

-No, I haven't read the sequel (or I guess, pre-quel from Merlin's standpoint) to the 'Once and Future King' but it will definitely go on my 'to read list'.

Hmmmm...think that's it...

Oh! Jill, you might try listening to "Fire in the Head" by TTP. Which was actually written in Glastonbury if I remember right....

And, hey, that brings us back to Arthur and his legend. I just love it when it all comes together...

Fire in the Head - The Tea Party

you stay
silent, knowing, always in time
see how this love stays divine
see how this love stays divine


sleep here
hoping, knowing, always in time
see how the love stays divine
see how the love stays divine
this is the way step inside


and i'm waiting
when I return to her I find
and i'm waiting
flowers of evil in my mind
and i'm waiting
dancing with fire on the edge
and i'm waiting
remembering all of what she said
and i'm waiting
hoping the rains will wash away
and i'm waiting
hoping a guide will show the way
and i'm waiting
dancing with fire on the edge
and i'm waiting
remembering all of what she said
with this fire in the head

you stay
silent, knowing, always in time
see how this love stays divine
see how this love stays divine
this is the way step inside


sleep here
hoping, knowing, always in time
see how the love stays divine
see how the love stays divine
this is the way step inside

Evocative words of that song ... what might evil flowers be, I wonder ?

The Book of Merlyn was not so much a sequel, more, an afterthought

It is nice to share Arthurian resonances ....

now then, a confidence (on such a public board too . braking my own rule - always dangerous)

.... in a past life journey, many years before UMS, I went back to his last battle and I appeared to be carrying him on my back to a place of safety ...

.... and you did not come back to my poems, ah me ... and also, more than all of this ( that is a great song, though very hard to find: "More than this, I give you ... " ? the next lines always escape me ) ....

............. I still think on those paintings of yours !

I thought dear old Richard Harris was Welsh; maybe i am wrong; confusing him with Richard Burton maybe.

ah me, Googled him, yes you are absolutely right: Irish. Learn something every day ! (my only excuse is that in one of his early films, This Sporting Life, was it? I hazily recall he played a Welsh Rugby player ... but I wouldn't go to the wall on that one either !)

Hi Paul!

Yes, I did forget the poems! I'm sorry! I would love to read if you want to share!

Interesting Arthurian memory....do you know your name? Have you ever read 'The Secret Tradition in Arthurian Legend' by...someone, lol...I'll have to check?

"The Flowers of Evil" (Les Fleurs du Mal) is a book of poetry by Baudelaire. Darkly beautiful.

I've never seen 'This Sporting Life' but RH was wonderful in 'To Walk with the Lions' although it's one of the saddest movies I've ever seen. Animal movies always make me cry...

For the former Duranies here on the board (ok...I'm still a Duranie...what can I say? I like lyrical symbolism).....


The Seventh Stranger - Duran Duran

Those words are all remainders
Echos growing in the heart of twilight
They lay back laughing at naivetys star.
Awaken all those whispers,
The dusty shadow of a passing favour
I wouldnt say that you were ruthless or right
I couldnt see from so far.
Was I chasing after rainbows?
One thing's for sure - you never answered when I called.
And I wiped away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger...

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
Im changing my name just as the sun goes down -
In the eyes of the stranger

Cant tell the real from reflection
When all these faces look the same to me
In every city such a desolate dream.
Some days are strange to number
Some say the seventh sounds a little bit stranger
A year of sundays seems to have drifted right by -
I could have sworn in one evening.
And Im not seized in desperation,
No steel reproaches on the table from before.
But I still can feel those splinters of ice
I look through the eyes of a stranger...

I must be chasing after rainbows
One thing's for sure you never answer when I call.
And I wipe away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger...

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
Im changing my name just as the sun goes down
Walking away like a stranger

Thanks - didn't catch my name then - the battle was quite bloody ... don't know the book, sounds interesting ... there is also one abuot the Cathars, as if a whole community was reincarnated then began to come together through shared reflections...

.. the poems are in typescript so it will take me some time, but will work on it ...

R H was also good in the film, Robin and Marian, playing Richard I against Sean Connery's Robin, Audrey Hepburn's Marian and Robert Shaw's Sheriff of Notingham ... moving & funny film abuot time catching up with ageing warriors ...

Dear MollyB ...we were talking about Arthurian poems ... here is one of my shorter ones ... written such a long time ago now, strange looking at them again.. hope they make some sense !:

from ARTHURIAN POEMS

AFTER BATTLE

Wind; and there’s magic in the air
D’you feel the ripple of the earth ?
The tide wave turns, the birds
Fly south – and the homegoing soul
Softly burns.

Water; and there’s magic in the stream.
D’you feel the flame softly glow ?
The antelope flee, the lioness
Prowls –
And the new baby cries
All alone.

Earth; and there’s magic in the grass-
D’you feel the spirit lightly pass?
Over your mind, under
Your feet –
And the women weep
For the dawn

Light; and there’s a hero in the chill
D’you feel the beat of your heart?
The valiant have come, the enemy
Is dead, make no mistake
This is so

These songs, dedicated to my dad: He was a Bob Seger fan, so that is HIS song.

Bob Seger's "Turn the page" click to listen

On a long and lonesome highway
East of Omaha
You can listen to the engine
Moanin' out his one note song
You can think about the woman
Or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will soon be wandering
The way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
And there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin',
You just wish the trip was through

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page

Well you walk into a restaurant,
Strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you
As you're shakin' off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you
But you just want to explode

Most times you can't hear 'em talk,
Other times you can
All the same old cliches,
"Is that a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered,
You don't dare make a stand

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page

Out there in the spotlight
You're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy
You try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body
Like the music that you play

Later in the evening
As you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers
Ringin' in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette,
Rememberin' what she said

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page
There I go
There I go

---------------------
My song of sadness: click to listen
The video doesn't go with the lyrics, in relation to my own life. Don't watch the vid... just listen, while reading the lyrics..... Makes me cry, massively.

Melissa Etheridge's "I will never be the same"

So you walked with me for a while
Bared your naked soul
And you told me of your plan
How you would never let them know
In the morning of the night
You cried a long lost child
And I tried on I tried to hold you
But you were young
And you were wild
[CHORUS]
But I, I will never be the same
Oh I, I will never be the same
Caught in your eyes
Lost in your name
I will never be the same
Secrets of your life
I never wanted for myself
But you guarded them like a lie
Placed up on the highest shelf
In the morning of the night
When I woke to find you gone
I knew your distant devil
Must be draggin' you along
[CHORUS]
And you swore that you were bound for glory
And for wanting you had no shame
But I loved you
And then I lost you
And I will never be the same
[CHORUS]
------------------------

One last song.... for all deaths and lost loved ones, but especially his sister, My Aunt Jan.
 
The Hollies - "He aint heavy, he's my brother"

Click to listen

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go

His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there

For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share

And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

Dear Jill

Lovely melancholy memories; than you for sharing them ... my father died in 2005, and on one of my visits to my check in on my mother over the past weekend, her car got broken into and trashed by car vandals in the night, and she is so very attached to that car as she ferried him around cos' he, though in his time, a full-time driver, was no longer able to drive ... don;t know why i am telling you this, except to empathise and resonate, thuogh too that grief is a door once open, to perpetually repeat in different ways;

I put the poems up on the Di Y thread eons ago, but in case they were not seen then, here they are offered again may they resonate with your loss, as each loss might help us move that little bit beyond into the Eternity that is Now.




POEMS OF MISSING

1.

The world is unfurled to us
Through our goodbyes

Each farewell an eternity
Of a death already here

Our only unique certainty
Sunrise begets sunset

2.

If time could stand still
If we could go back

If the rainbow were black
If the hill wore a veil

If gaol was release
If the fire did not burn

If the tide did not turn
If please, you had not died

3.

I never told you that I loved you
I never told you that I cared

I never thought how I loved you
I never thought I cared

I barely touched or held you
I barely talked to you at all

I never knew the depth of longing
I would feel when you had gone

I never knew I’d cry for you
I never knew you would die

I did not know how I’d miss you
I barely knew you at all
4.

One day we may
Be ghosts, were we ever

Lucky and others
Not. Now birth, then

Memory of tomorrow
Yesterday and never

5.

One day we may be angels:
Fantastic futures for tales that were,

But will not be again. Only what can
Be drawn now, in the hearts

And minds of others
Might outlast a die already cast

Lovely, lovely poems, Paul. They certainly resonate here in the heart. Thank you for sharing.

Bob Segar! I saw him live back in 1986 and he puts on an awesome show!

"I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Starting humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in..."

Funny how we become fondly attached to things that we have associations with...when it comes to loved ones we've lost.

I fully understand about the attachment to the car.

"Stochastic" never really produced what we could have achieved.....an open form of world music....though it did have it's moments.

Daydream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDDB0cRZ7NU
- Lovin' Spoonful
What a day for a daydream
What a day for a daydreamin' boy
And I'm lost in a daydream
Dreamin' 'bout my bundle of joy
And even if time ain't really on my side
It's one of those days for taking a walk outside
I'm blowing the day to take a walk in the sun
And fall on my face on somebody's new-mown lawn
I've been having a sweet dream
I been dreaming since I woke up today
It's starring me and my sweet thing
'Cause she's the one makes me feel this way
And even if time is passing me by a lot
I couldn't care less about the dues you say I got
Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load
A pie in the face for being a sleep'n bull doag
{Whistle}
And you can be sure that if you're feeling right
A daydream will last long into the night
Tomorrow at breakfast you may pick up your ears
Or you may be daydreaming for a thousand years
What a day for a daydream
Custom made for a daydreaming boy
And I'm lost in a daydream
Dreaming 'bout my bundle of joy
{Whistle
