"At Last..."

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a lovely song
At last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover
Ever since the night I looked at you.

I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream to call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill like I have never known
Oh when you smile, when you smile at me
That's how the spell was cast
And now here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last.

I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream to call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill like I have never known
Oh when you smile, when you smile at me
That's how the spell was cast
And now here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At Last.
"At Last" from (among many) the album At Last, music by
Harry Warren, lyrics by Mack Gordon 1942 (copyright renewed WB Music Corp.)
Recorded by Etta James 1961 Chess Records, rereleased 1999 MCA Records.

"Absence of Fear"

Inside my skin
There is this space...
It twists and turns
It bleeds and aches
Inside my heart
There's an empty room.
It's waiting for lightning;
It's waiting for you
I am wanting, and...
I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear
Muscles and sinew
Velvet and stone...
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans
My bones call to you
In their separate skin.
I make myself translucent
To let you in, for..
I am wanting, and...
I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear
There is this hunger
This restlessness inside of me
And it knows that you're no stranger,
You're my gravity
My hands will adore you
Through all darkness, and aim
Lay you out in moonlight
And reinvent your name
For I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here...
I need you near...
Inside the absence of fear.

"Absence of Fear" from the album Spirit was written by Jewel Kilcher
1996 WB Music Corp./Wiggly Tooth Music (Atlantic)

"Winter"

Snow can wait
I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose
get my new boots on
I get a little warm
in my heart
When I think of winter
I put my hand in my
father's glove

I run off where the drifts
get deeper
Sleeping Beauty trips me
with a frown I hear a voice
"You must learn to stand up
for yourself Cause I can't always be around"

he says
when you gonna
make up your mind
When you gonna love you
as much as I do
When you gonna
make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change
so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always
want you near you say that things
change my dear

boys get discovered
as winter melts
flowers competing for the sun
years go by and I'm here
still waiting withering where some
snowman was
mirror mirror
where's the crystal palace
but I only can see myself
Skating around the truth
who I am but I know dad
the ice is getting thin
hair is grey and the fires
are burning so many dreams
on the shelf
You say I wanted you to be
proud of me
I always wanted that myself

things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses have gone ahead
I tell you that I'll always want you
near you say that things change
my dear

"Winter" from the album Little Earthquakes all songs written by Tori Amos.

Mass Pike

I wonder when I wander home If I'll be fit to drink alone.
Sleep with my memories, Pictures, apologies.
For every minute yesterday, Regret reminds me anyway.
If I remember anything, I'll make mistakes again.
Last night on the Mass Pike, Thought I was losing you.
Last night on the Mass Pike, I fell in love with you.
I will declare a holiday, The night that she turned me away.
I'm drowning in my miseries It solves everything.
Last night on the Mass Pike, Thought I was losing you.
Last night on the Mass Pike, I fell in love with you.
With you.
Last night on the Mass Pike, Thought I was losing you.
Last night on the Mass Pike, I fell in love with you.
Last night on the Mass Pike, Thought I was losing you.
Last night on the Mass Pike, I fell in love with you.

"Mass Pike" from the album Red Letter Day 1999 the getupkids music (SESAC)

"The Very Thought of You"

I don't need your photograph
To keep by my bed
Your picture is always in my head
I don't need your portrait
To call you to mind
For sleeping or waking I find

The very thought of you
And I forget to do
The little ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I'm living in a kind of daydream
I'm happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
To me, you're everything.

The mere idea of you
Belonging here for you
You'll never know how slow the moments go
'Till I'm near to you.
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love.

Music and Lyrics by Ray Noble (1934)

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

Music by Harold Arlen and Lyrics by E.Y. Harburg (1939)

Eli's Song

Put your ear close to the ground
Do you hear a fading sound?
If it's lost for getting found, it's me
A vagabond with no address
fire in the wilderness
The patient's losing conciousness
rapidly...
Torn between what I can see
this picture you have of me
It isn't much to look at ,we agree.

This light,
this rain,
this life,
this pain.

Let me walk down that road
cause you know I have to go.
You won't be there but even so
everyone goes... down that road
and you know I have to go
You won't be there but even so
everyone goes.

Written by W.G. Snuffy Walden

Sisters of Mercy

Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on.
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.
Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long.

Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control.
It begins with your family, but soon it comes 'round to your soul.
Well I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned:
When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned.

Well they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them.
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem.
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem .

When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon.
Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon.
And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night:
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right,
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right.

"On Saturday Afternoons in 1963"

The most as you'll ever go
Is back where you used to know
If grown-ups could laugh this slow
Where as you watch the hour snow
Years may go by

So hold on to your special friend
Here, you'll need something to keep her in :
"Now you stay inside this foolish grin ... "
Though any day your secrets end
Then again
Years may go by

You saved your own special friend
'Cuz here you need something to hide her in
And you stay inside that foolish grin
When everyday now secrets end
Oh and then again
Years may go by

Sunshine

There goes my little baby
And there goes my little baby
And here's to you my fine looking
friend
Heres to the one who laughs at me

She's my imagination
She's my temptation
So celebrate the one you love
Make my day and come with me

Wont you give me some
Sunshine
All I need is sunshine
Sunshine
All I need is sunshine

"Sunshine" performed by Bottlefly, from the album Bottlefly, written by Mark Arnell and Richie Wermerling (2000)

Your House

Take me down to your house
Show me where you live
Room by room, all the things you cherish

Tell me where you're going
Show me where you've been
Year by year, all the things that you wished

And I'll give my love, give my love
Angel, I am here and I am.....yours.

Whisper me your secrets,
I won't tell a soul
One by one, I'll treasure every story

This is where our love goes
Circling back again
This is heaven's gift to us to tell it

And I'll give my love, give my love
Angel I am here and I am....yours

Tonight we'll speak the old words
Caress the silence
Tonight we'll tell the whole world where to go

I will walk the way in,
You'll take the journey out
Path across our hearts, eyes wide open

Room by room, year by year, one by one, say goodnight,
Love...
Love.

"Your House" from the album Steady Pull, words and music by Jonatha Brooke, © 2001 Dog Dream Music/ASCAP

When the Red, Red Robin comes Bob-Bob-Bobbing Along

When the red red robin comes
Bob bob bobbing along, along
There'll be no more sobbing
When he starts throbbing
His old sweet song.
Wake up, wake up, you sleepy head.
Get up, get up, get out of bed.
Cheer up, cheer up, the sun is red.
Live, love, laugh, and be happy.

What if I've been blue?
Now I'm walking through fields of flowers.
Rain may glisten but still I listen
For hours and hours.
I'm just a kid again,
Doing what I did again,
Singing a song,
When the red red robin comes
Bob bob bobbing along.
