i lived in constant fear
too much of  this life
fleeting glimpses
still come and go

i recognize it
but it’s unfamiliar
i remember feeling it
but not what it felt like

sorrow was once
my most loyal companion
in reality i was alone
though i clung to my illusions

i recognize it
but it’s unfamiliar
i remember feeling it
but not what it felt like

there are wisps of  anger,
shame and loss behind my eyes;
a faint taste of  pain
lingers on my tongue

i recognize them
but they’re unfamiliar
i remember feeling them
but not what they felt like

“The Pain is Gone”   Black Lab

lyrics ~

I’ll take a photograph
Whatever makes you laugh
But come on step out of the rain
You’d hate to catch your death
All the life that you got left
Lit up like a candle on your face

There are words that are fadin’
And I’m trying not to say  ‘em
Before they fall into the fog
But every single day, once or twice an hour
The shadow falls away and I see you walking in a straight line

And the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Now the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

Every year there’s a place
Only you and I go
I didn’t mean to push you
I didn’t mean to laugh when you fell
I didn’t mean to shout when you got hurt
I didn’t mean to argue
I didn’t mean to criticize you
And I’m sorry for saying I didn’t like your skirt

There are demons that are screaming
And I’m trying not to feed them
As I carry water for us through the dirt
I always need you near me, I always need you near me
I don’t know what I’d do if I was walking here without you

And the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Now the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

Every year there’s a place
Only you and I go
There are things about me
Only you will ever know

And the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Now the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

Send all my love, send all my love
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Send all my love, send all my love
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

There are things about me
Only you will ever know
And this sweet dream will end
And I will wake from this life
Again… and again…
And again… and again… and again

what if…..

i  was born into a family that wanted,  loved and nourished me?
i  learned from my mistakes,  never to repeat them?
i  had opportunities in another life that i  took hold of ?
i  achieved fulfillment in that life from the choices which i  made?
not fame or fortune,  but living to the most of  my potential?

§

what if  all that were possible?

i  wouldn’t give up one single person in this life
whom i love or who loves me
for even a moment as that other “perfect” me

all my life i  have stayed awake from dusk  ’til dawn
for all my life i  have been in love with the Moon

all my life has been spent separate from humanity
for all my life i  have been devoted to Her alone

at night
when the world is quiet
while others sleep
i  talk with the Moon

no,  i  must admit…   i  talk  to  the Moon
for Her only response is a howl upon the wind

moonbeams drift in through the open window
but dance just beyond my reach

i  send my adoring thoughts to Her
on stars that shoot across the sky
no answer ever comes
Her only response is a howl upon the wind

i  see Her looking down upon me
though She pretends to notice naught

She knows i  am hopelessly moonstruck
of  that i  am quite certain

i  whisper sweet nothings to Her
i  sing tender songs of  love
i  promise my heart to Her for all eternity
but Her only response is a howl upon the wind

now my life is coming to its end
a life filled with a fool’s dreams

in my desperation
i  stand naked,  howling at the Moon

at long last She embraces me
and carries my soul home to Her forever

“Moondance”   Michael Buble

lyrics ~

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, I want to make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush
One more moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can’t I just have one more dance with you my love
