    "Question"

    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door?
    With a thousand million questions
    About hate and death and war.

    It's where we stop and look around us
    There is nothing that we need.
    In a world of persecution
    That is burning in it's greed.

    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door?
    Because the truth is hard to swallow
    That's what the wall of love is for.

    It's not the way that you say it
    When you do those things to me.
    It's more the way that you mean it
    When you tell me what will be.

    And when you stop and think about it
    You won't believe it's true.
    That all the love you've been giving
    Has all been meant for you.

    I'm looking for someone to change my life.
    I'm looking for a miracle in my life.
    And if you could see what it's done to me
    To lose the the love I knew
    Could safely lead me through.

    Between the silence of the mountains
    And the crashing of the sea
    There lies a land I once lived in
    And she's waiting there for me.

    But in the grey of the morning
    My mind becomes confused
    Between the dead and the sleeping
    And the road that I must choose.


    I'm looking for someone to change my life.
    I'm looking for a miracle in my life.
    And if you could see what it's done to me
    To lose the the love I knew
    Could safely lead me to
    The land that I once knew.
    To learn as we grow old
    The secrets of our souls.

    It's not the way that you say it
    When you do those things to me.
    It's more the way you really mean it
    When you tell me what will be.

    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door?
    With a thousand million questions
    About hate and death and war.

    It's where we stop and look around us
    There is nothing that we need.
    In a world of persecution
    That is burning in it's greed.

    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door?

    "Believe"


    The faces all around me they don't smile they just crack
    Waiting for our ship to come but our ships not coming back
    We do have time like pennies in a jar
    What are we saving for

    There's a smell of stale fear and it's reeking from our skins
    The drinking never stops because the drinks absolve our sins
    We sit and grow our roots into the floor
    What are we waiting for


    So give me something to believe
    Cause I am living just to breathe
    And I need something more
    To keep on breathing for
    So give me something to believe

    Something's always coming you can hear it in the ground
    It swells into the air
    With the rising
    Rising sound
    And never comes but shakes the boards and rattles all the doors
    What are we waiting for


    So give me something to believe
    Cause I am living just to breathe
    And I need something more
    To keep on breathing for
    So give me something to believe

    I am hiding from some beast
    But the beast was always here
    Watching without eyes
    Because the beast is just my fear
    That I am just nothing
    Now its just what I've become
    What am I waiting for
    Its already done


    So give me something to believe
    Cause I am living just to breathe
    And I need something more
    To keep on breathing for
    So give me something to believe
    Whoops.

    I LOVE this song.
    You can't always do it right, you can always do what's left.

    Thoughts rearrange. Familiar now strange. All my skin is drifting on the wind.~

    If you don't mind why don't you mind
    Where is your sense of indignation
    You are too kind
    Much too kind
    Where is the madness that you promised me?
    Where is the dream for which I paid dearly?
    When things go wrong I sing along
    It is the nature of the business
    But you're not here to make my sad songs more sincere
    No one will ever love you honestly
    No one will ever love you for your honesty
    No one will ever love you honestly
    No one will ever love you for your honesty

    Lyrics to Stephen Sondheim's "The Road You Didn't Take" come into my head regularly. It's about making choices and dealing with the "what-ifs" in life.:

    The Road You Didn't Take

    You're either a poet, or you're a lover
    Or you're the famous Benjamin Stone.
    You take one road, you try one door.
    There isn't time for any more.
    One's life consists of either/or.
    One has regrets, which one forgets,
    And as the years go on...

    The road you didn't take hardly comes to mind.
    Does it?
    The door you didn't try, where could it have led?
    The choice you didn't make never was defined.
    Was it!

    Dreams you didn't dare are dead.
    Were they ever there? Who said!
    I don't remember, I don't remember at all.

    The books I'll never read wouldn't change a thing.
    Would they?
    The girls I'll never know, I'm too tired for.
    The lives I'll never lead couldn't make me sing.
    Could they?

    Chances that you miss-- Ignore.
    Ignorance is bliss-- What's more,
    You won't remember, you won't remember at all.
    Not at all.

    You yearn for the women, long for the money,
    Envy the famous Benjamin Stones.
    You take your road, the decades fly.
    The yearnings fade, the longings die.
    You learn to bid them all goodbye.
    And oh, the peace, the blessed peace...
    At last you come to know:

    The roads you never take go through rocky ground.
    Don't they?
    The choices that you make, aren't all that grim.
    The worlds you never see, still will be around.
    Won't they!
    The Ben I'll never be, who remembers him?

    I like the line between your belly and your thighs (rollin' along, rollin' along)
    The smell of your hair, the sparkle in your eyes (rollin' along, rollin' along)
    Smoke in your breath, your breathing hard and heavy
    The back of your neck, the shine on your Chevy
    The moon was so big when I drove into the levy, girl (rollin' along, rollin' along)

    I found blood and I saw stars all in the backseat of your car
    And I told you it was love, but you don't wanna know the truth
    I'm a young man in my prime, but my heart's still filled with fear
    And it goes on clear...

    The clean dreams, the sexy limousine (rollin' along, rollin' along)
    Jason's got the energy, used to be a coke fiend (rollin' along, rollin' along)
    Skinny brown arms coming out of your shirt
    Heart is in the right place, brain is in the dirt
    You live life like everyone's an enemy (rollin' along, rollin' along)

    I found blood and I saw stars all in the backseat of your car
    And I told you it was love, but you don't wanna know the truth
    I'm a young man in my prime, but my heart's still filled with fear
    And it goes on clear...

    This is just a song that I just keep singing. For over a year now. Not entirely sure why. Or maybe I do know why, in ineffable kind of way..

    Somewhere Only We Know (Keane)

    I walked across an empty land,
    I knew the pathway like the back of my hand.
    I felt the earth beneath my feet,
    Sat by the river and made it complete.

    Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
    I'm getting old and I need something to rely on.
    So tell me when you're going to let me in,
    I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.

    I came across a fallen elm tree,
    I felt the branches; are they looking at me?
    Is this the place we use to love?
    Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

    Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
    I'm getting old and I need something to rely on.
    So tell me when you're gonna let me in,
    I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.
    So if you have a minute why don't we go,
    Talk about it somewhere only we know?
    This could be the end of everything.
    So why don't we go, somewhere only we know,
    Somewhere only we know.

    This is from The Secret Garden, my favourite movie ever since I saw it 15 years ago. For the last two years I couldn't stop singing this song, during evenings when I'm alone, or quietly to myself when I'm at work and see that no one is around to hear..

    Winter Light (Linda Ronstadt)

    Hearts call
    Hearts fall
    swallowed in the rain
    Who knows
    life grows hollow and so vain

    Wandering in the winter light
    the wicked and the sane
    bear witness to salvation
    and life starts over again

    Now the clear sky is all around you
    Love's shadow will surround you
    all through the night
    Star glowing in the twilight
    Tell me true
    Hope whispers
    and I will follow
    till you love me too

    And this is the third one.


    Moment of Peace (Gregorian)

    Come now, come by our side
    A place where you can hide
    We are the sunshine
    Rest your soul here
    And you'll find
    We are the energy
    We give the world to thee
    Hold up your heart now
    We will ease pain from your brow

    When the world is in tatters
    And destruction is near
    You can come with us here

    When the people are strangers
    You'll rest here with me
    In a moment of peace

    Light up the dark below,
    See through the stars,
    Reach to the earth's flow
    Drift in the joy of our hearts,
    Unleash the energy,
    Taste of the wine
    Drink as a soul
    That knows now, power divine
