I feel like singing......

Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 11:28 AM

I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
Because at 5 o'clock they take me to the gallows pole.
The sands of time for me are running low.

When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there's some sort of error?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
It's not easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears fall but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
If there's a God then why has he let me go?

As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul because it's willing to fly away

Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
Please don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to see the truth

When you know that your time is close at hand,
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion.

Hallowed be Thy name.

    A veil of sparkling white soothes and bathes me in the light
    It feels me with the suns and visions of the ancient ones

    Descend to me, and sooth my disarray
    And so it's done-Hear my words Avalon

    Fields are swaying like dancers in the moonlight
    Rivers field with dreams-Unbroken and still promising

    Descend to me, and sooth my disarray
    And so it's done-Hear my words Avalon

    Warm inside-open the way in
    Float into the night-Embrace what's to be

    Avalon

    With a skill that was her's alone
    She drove her clutches into me
    I was dumbfounded
    She was hungry
    She required me entirely

    All that's left is here to remain
    It's a dull and cruel pain
    That passes the ages unaltered
    Her stamp is in my heart
    I still feel disemboweled
    I clearly retain
    A blank
    The void
    The sore in my soul
    The mark in my heart
    Her acid reign

    And that voice that was her's alone
    Still resounds in me
    She left me dislocated
    Disavowed
    And twitching
    Her rhythm is in my heart
    She inspired in me
    An acute sense of treachery

    Rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night
    And wouldn't you love to love her
    She rules her life like a bird in flight
    And who will be her lover...

    All your life you've never seen
    A woman--taken by the wind
    Would you stay if she promised you heaven
    Will you ever win...

    She is like a cat in the dark
    And then she is the darkness
    She rules her life like a fine skylark--
    And when the sky is starless--

    All your life you've never seen--
    A woman--taken by the wind
    Would you stay if she promised you heaven
    Will you ever win...

    Love to read you singing Elly

    "Fast Car"

    You got a fast car
    I want a ticket to anywhere
    Maybe we make a deal
    Maybe together we can get somewhere
    Any place is better
    Starting from zero got nothing to lose
    Maybe we'll make something
    Me myself I got nothing to prove

    You got a fast car
    I got a plan to get us out of here
    I been working at the convenience store
    Managed to save just a little bit of money
    Won't have to drive too far
    Just 'cross the border and into the city
    You and I can both get jobs
    And finally see what it means to be living

    See my old man's got a problem
    He live with the bottle that's the way it is
    He says his body's too old for working
    His body's too young to look like his
    My mama went off and left him
    She wanted more from life than he could give
    I said somebody's got to take care of him
    So I quit school and that's what I did

    You got a fast car
    Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
    We gotta make a decision
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

    So remember when we were driving driving in your car
    Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    We go cruising, entertain ourselves
    You still ain't got a job
    And I work in a market as a checkout girl
    I know things will get better
    You'll find work and I'll get promoted
    We'll move out of the shelter
    Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

    So remember when we were driving driving in your car
    Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    I got a job that pays all our bills
    You stay out drinking late at the bar
    See more of your friends than you do of your kids
    I'd always hoped for better
    Thought maybe together you and me find it
    I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
    So take your fast car and keep on driving

    So remember when we were driving driving in your car
    Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    Is it fast enough so you can fly away?
    You gotta make a decision
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

    Rock on- gold dust woman
    Take your silver spoon
    And dig your grave

    Heartless challenge
    Pick your path and I'll pray

    Wake up in the morning
    See your sunrise- loves- to go down
    Lousy lovers- pick their prey
    But they never cry out loud

    Did she make you cry
    Make you break down
    Shatter your illusions of love
    Is it over now- do you know how
    Pick up the pieces and go home.

    Rock on- ancient woman

    I caught you knockin' at my cellar door
    I love you, baby, can I have some more?
    Ooh, the damage done

    I hit the city and I lost my band
    I watched the needle take another man
    Gone, gone, the damage done

    I sing the song because I love the man
    I know that some of you don't understand
    Milk blood to keep from running out

    I've seen the needle and the damage done
    A little part of it in everyone
    But every junkie's like a settin' sun

    You are so out of key
    All of a sudden I saw a ton of birds flying madly to get away from the south of the city

    :)
