Chris Orbach: April

(viewed 1545 times)
This song just came on my box. It was written by a dear friend of mine. A
sample of the song, (and some of my photos, even!) can be heard/seen
href="http://www.chrisorbach.com">here
.AprilWith a blue sky for a ceiling, and a dandelion floor
This cloud inside me's got me feeling I don't belong here anymore.
Spend a week or two in limbo for every day I spend in hell
From the claws of your attention, to my room in this hotel.And I've been down...
Just as down as I can be.
Trying to find my way to the truth around what everyone wants to see.You say I mean so much to you
and you won't even pull me through
Well, I'm sick of being strong
Oh please, cruel month of April, take me in your deadly arms until the pain
is gone.I'm not gonna be a stage to put your plays on...
I'm not gonna be a page to scratch your rage on...
You say that I'm the beam your whole life leans on
But I've been nothing but a screen to show your dreams on.And that's hard.
You don't know how hard it's been.
Trying to live the way that I do in the shrinking space where you end and I
begin.You say I mean so much to you
and you won't even pull me through
Well, I'm sick of being strong
Oh please, cruel month of April, take me in your deadly arms until the pain
is gone.Hold me 'til the pain is gone.-Chris Orbach

I Won't Be Your Yoko Ono

(viewed 1648 times)
The Beatles fan in me loves this song to death.

So does the rest of me.

*laugh* I was 17 when that photo was taken.

I Won't Be Your Yoko Ono


I wonder if yoko ono
Ever thought of staying solo?
If she thought of other men and
If she doubted john lennon
Worrying that hed distract her art?

Sitting in the Apple sessions
Giving John her music lessons
Challenging the warring nations
With her paper installations
Did she guard her yoko human heart?
Well, they could talk about me
Yeah, they could talk about me
Throw me to the velvet dogs of pop star history

But I wont be your yoko ono
If youre not good enough for meSome will give their love for fashion
Others trade their gold for passion
I dont have the goods to start with
Never had the reins to part with
Still, I hope you take me seriously

cause I think I could go
Deep as the sea of Yoko
You dont know a person like me
I could sell your songs to nike

And for all you know
I could save your soul
As only true love can change your mind
Make you leave your screaming fans behind


When John called the wind an opera
Making love with every chakra
When he said her voice would carry
And when he whispered old chuck berry
Only then would Yoko set him free.

Fame will come and vanish later
Transcendental love is greater
I think if we had this somehow
Wed be feeling famous right now
Wed be saying love is all you need

And they could rag about me
Yeah, they could rag about me
Throw me to the velvet dogs of pop star history


But I wont be your yoko ono
If youre not good enough for me

Oh, no . . . and I wont be your yoko ono
If youre not good enough for me . . . . . .

Fwd: Dar Williams: The One Who Knows.

(viewed 1490 times)

Time it was I had a dream
And you're that dream come true.
If I had the world to give
I'd give it all to you.
I'll take you to the mountains,
I will take you to the sea.
I'll show you how this life became a miracle to me.

You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day.
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done you'll be the one who knows.

All the things you treasure most
will be the hardest won.
I will watch you struggle long
before the answers come.
But I won't make it harder,
I'll be there to cheer you on.

I'll shine the light that guides you down
The road you're walking on.

You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day.
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done you'll be the one who knows.

Before the mountains call to you,
before you leave this home,
Wanna teach your heart to trust
As I will teach my own.
But sometimes I will ask the moon
Where it shined upon you last
And shake my head and laugh and say
It all went by so fast.


You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day.
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done you'll be the one who knows.

Dar Williams: Are You Out There?

The box decided to slap me around a bit this afternoon.

(not surprisingly, it went from this, to Closer by NIN, and then to Master
and Slave by Cherry Poppin Daddies. Seems about par.)
