Woman

Woman
My love is never ending
Like a sea without a shore
Woman
I’m a fool guilty of old crimes
But you are the one I adore
Woman
When the world has emptied
and the planet is covered in dust
I will stand beneath the silver moon rising
Waiting to resurrect our love

Woman
My love is never ending
Like a sea without a shore
Woman
I’m a fool guilty of old crimes
But you are the one I adore
Woman
When the world has emptied
and the planet is covered in dust
I will stand
Stand beneath the silver moon rising
Waiting to resurrect our love

Woman
My love is never ending
Like a sea without a shore
Woman
I’m a fool guilty of old crimes
You are the one I adore
Woman
When the world has emptied
and the planet is covered in dust
I will stand
Stand beneath the silver moon rising
Waiting to resurrect our love

Reflection

The moon tells me a secret:
As full and bright as I am
This light is not my own
A million light reflections pass over me
The source is bright and endless
She resuscitates the hopeless
Without her we are lifeless satellites drifting
So let the light touch you
And let the words spill through
Let them press right through
Bringing out our hope and reason
And you will come to find
That we are all one mind
Capable of all that’s imagined and all conceivable

-Tool

Detours

Mother can you hold me together
It’s so dark and I’m losing my way
I took all of these detours to find love
But when I did it just faded away

Now what do I do with
the sweet love of mine
Do I give it away and
hope that someday I’ll find
someone half as awake as
the moon and the stars
Mother teach me to love
with a paper-thin heart

Mother your words are so healing
You speak of love and of light and of peace
But I’ve made it my course to avoid you
Just to hide from these feelings of grief

Now what do I do with
the sweet love of mine
Do I give it away and
hope that someday I’ll find
someone half as awake as
the moon and the stars
Mother teach me to love
with a paper-thin heart

Mother I know you are with me
You were there when I took my first breath
I can’t stop looking back for the answers
I just keep coming up with regret
There are some things I just can’t forget

-Sheryl Crow

Sweet Music

One of these days I’m gonna wake up
Skies gonna be blue
One of these days I’m gonna wake up
To a sun shining through
One of these days this song is gonna be true
And the world, the world is gonna be brand new

One of these days I’m gonna wake up
And I’m gonna feel fine
One of these days I’m gonna wake up
And my dreams are gonna be mine
One of these days this song is gonna be true
And the world, the world is gonna be brand new

One of these days I’m gonna wake up
And I’m gonna be free
One of these days I’m gonna wake up
Break these chains holding me
One of these days this song is gonna be true
And the world, the world is gonna be brand new

-Alicia Keys

A Love Before Time

If the sky opened up for me
And the mountains disappeared
If the seas ran dry turned to dust
And the sun refused to shine
I would still find my way
By the light I see in your eyes
The world I know fades away
But you stay

As the earth reclaims it’s due
And the cycle starts anew
We’ll stay always
In the love that we have shared before time

If the years take away
Every memory that I have
I would still know the way
That would lead me back to your side

The north star may die
But the light that I see in your eyes
Will burn there always
Lit by the love we have shared before time

When the forests turn to jade
And the stories that we’ve made dissolve away
One shining light will still remain
When we shed our earthly skin
And our real life begins
There’ll be no shame
Just the love that we have made before time

-Coco Lee from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack
