Haunted By You

Pensive and quiet
Like forever was
In a chrysalis, she waits for us
And she takes from us
Oh sweet life, why give and take from us?
It’s all for you
It’s all for truth

Feels like I’m holding you down
But you won’t leave me alone
And you’re holding me now
But I’m so far away from you

There’s no home
No home like the one I found in you
Now you’re running away
Oh to feel like a child again…

And the song he sings, he brings to life for you
It’s all for you
It’s all for you…

And the words he places on the page just can’t admit
This song’s for you
This song’s for you…

Feels like you’re holding me down
But I can’t leave you alone
And I’m holding you now
But you’re so far and lost to me

There’s no home
No home like the one I found in you
Now I’m running away
And I feel like a child again
Oh to feel like a child again…

And I’m haunted by you
I’m haunted by you

Every song I sing, it brings me back to you
I’m haunted by you
I’m haunted by you
I’m haunted by you…

Yet another gem from my old friends.

Listen, love, share.

I know it’s been a while dear friends…

…more to come.

Love to all.

Walk Through the Door

For None and All…

Walking Through that Door

As processions fade, New hearts doubt.

But you are Golden and no one questions it.

But who you fake and how you sound,
Asks the best of men
To share your sentiment

I want to be the one to help you find those years
That you’ve been talking about.
Dreaming of the South
And all those lost goodbyes,
And all those lonely tears,
You never got to cry,

It never works out right,
Unless you’re one to follow.
Where the silence takes too long,
When the night falls–when the night falls oh so slow,
And caution isn’t ours.
When the night falls–when the night falls oh so low,
We may lose control.

I want to be the one to help you find those years
That you’ve been talking about.
Dreaming of the South
And all those lonely nights,
And all those lost goodbyes,
You never got to sigh.

I want to be the one to help you find those dreams
Because you’ve been hanging around,
Talking about the South,
And all those balmy nights,
And all those lonely songs,
You never got to write.

And I’ll hold your hand as I walk you through that door,
I’ll hold your hand as you held my hand as I walk you through the door

Before the Bridge

Just the latest in my music video collection. As I said before, these will only be songs that I personally like, and this one is unique in that I am friends with this band…. Future Islands   We all went to college at the same time, parties where they played in the corners of houses. There was a place called Peasant’s. Those were good times. 

 James Dean  happens to be a great actor, one of personal favorites other than Jack Nicholson. Too bad he died way too young, in such a horrible manner too… ouch. As did Natalie Wood , and you can click on everything in blue to read more. Rebel Without a Cause  is/was/ and always will be a great movie. If you haven’t seen it before, WATCH IT. Everyone should see it at least once. 

So, in the spirit of creativity, I combined the song with clips from the movie. It’s a song we can all relate to, and a movie we can all relate to, so let’s relate together. Thx for watching/reading. Share if you like. More to come. Wide eyes open. Love to all. 

Inch of Dust

These guys are old friends of mine from college. The lead singer and I particularly hung out for a brief time, a long time ago. Great group of guys, brilliant musicians, I’m lucky to say that I am friends with the band that made some of the best music I or you will ever know. Anyway, here’s a link to the song mentioned in the post title, “Inch of Dust.” I’ll add the lyrics below for you so you can all enjoy what I have enjoyed for so long.

Inch of Dust


A part of me–you have,
A part of me–you hold,
Apart from me–you stand,
And there’s parts that you have stole.

You collect them in the cupboards
Like the pieces of a puzzle.
And nest just like a mother,
In the dampness of your sweater.
And it’s never put together,
As I’ve watched you from the window.
Behind the curtains, winter,
Moves slowly as a tether.
To wrap around you tightly,
As lovers will in meadows.
To fall in love with shadows,
Where the snow is all but melted.
And it’s never put together,
It’s never put together.
Behind the curtains, winter,
Falls slowly as a feather.

A part of you–I have,
The part of you–I hide.
A part of you I hold,
The part you left behind.
————-
Call on me, I’ll be there always
————-
A part of me–you have,
A part of me–you hold.
Apart from me–you stand,
And there’s parts that you have stole.

A part of you–I have,
The part of you–I hide.
A part of you I stole,
The part you left behind.

 

And here is a link to the actual song… Future Islands – Inch of Dust   Be sure to listen to this and everything else they have, and for a bonus treat, you can look up Art Lord and the Self-Portraits. That was Future Islands before they became such, when we were all just broke college kids trying to figure everything out. Those times are gone, but will never be forgotten. Enjoy. Wide eyes open. Love to all.
