    Cockburn Bruce - Lovers In A Dangerous Time

    Don't the hours grow shorter as the days go by
    You never get to stop and open your eyes
    One day you're waiting for the sky to fall
    The next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all
    When you're lovers in a dangerous time
    Lovers in a dangerous time

    These fragile bodies of touch and taste
    This vibrant skin -- this hair like lace
    Spirits open to the thrust of grace
    Never a breath you can afford to waste
    When you're lovers in a dangerous time

    When you're lovers in a dangerous time
    Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime --
    But nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight --
    Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight
    When you're lovers in a dangerous time
    Lovers in a dangerous time
    And we're lovers in a dangerous time
    Lovers in a dangerous time

    Joni Mitchell

    I'm in an amber mood. I quit my old job, for a new job with better pay, better benefits and a better workplace. (less than 60 hours a week, no asshole boss and better people)

    Was hard to leave. I am going to miss a lot of good people that worked with me and for me, but I am burned out and need a change. So I'm halfway between melancholy and excited/nervous. Joni just seemed to fit my mood.

    The Circle Game

    Yesterday a child came out to wonder
    Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
    Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
    And tearful at the falling of a star
    Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
    Skated over ten clear frozen streams
    Words like, when you’re older, must appease him
    And promises of someday make his dreams
    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We’re captive on the carousel of time
    We can’t return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
    Cartwheels turn to car wheels thru the town
    And they tell him,
    Take your time, it won’t be long now
    Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down
    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We’re captive on the carousel of time
    We can’t return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
    Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
    There’ll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
    Before the last revolving year is through
    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We’re captive on the carousel of time
    We can’t return, we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    Joni Mitchell

    All the best for you Kotoko. A song in your honour ...

    America — “Ventura Highway”

    Chewing on a piece of grass
    Walking down the road
    Tell me, how long you gonna stay here, joe?
    Some people say this town don’t look good in snow
    You don’t care, I know

    Ventura highway in the sunshine
    Where the days are longer
    The nights are stronger than moonshine
    You’re gonna go I know

    ’cause the free wind is blowin’ through your hair
    And the days surround your daylight there
    Seasons crying no despair
    Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

    Did di di di dit ...

    Wishin’ on a falling star
    Waitin’ for the early train
    Sorry boy, but I’ve been hit by purple rain
    Aw, come on, joe, you can always
    Change your name
    Thanks a lot, son, just the same

    Ventura highway in the sunshine
    Where the days are longer
    The nights are stronger than moonshine
    You’re gonna go I know

    ’cause the free wind is blowin’ through your hair
    And the days surround your daylight there
    Seasons crying no despair
    Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

    Did di di di dit ...

    Music by elton john
    Lyrics by bernie taupin

    We All Fall In Love Sometimes

    Wise men say
    It looks like rain today
    It crackled on the speakers
    And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
    For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
    Aching legs that often told us
    It’s all worth it
    We all fall in love sometimes

    The full moon’s bright
    And starlight filled the evening
    We wrote it and I played it
    Something happened it’s so strange this feeling
    Naive notions that were childish
    Simple tunes that tried to hide it
    But when it comes
    We all fall in love sometimes

    Did we, didn’t we, should we couldn’t we
    I’m not sure `cause sometimes we’re so blind
    Struggling through the day
    When even your best friend says
    Don’t you find
    We all fall in love sometimes

    And only passing time
    Could kill the boredom we acquired
    Running with the losers for a while
    But our empty sky was filled with laughter
    Just before the flood
    Painting worried faces with a smile

    Bob Dylan - Gates of Eden

    Of war and peace the truth just twists
    Its curfew gull just glides
    Upon four-legged forest clouds
    The cowboy angel rides
    With his candle lit into the sun
    Though its glow is waxed in black
    All except when 'neath the trees of Eden

    The lamppost stands with folded arms
    Its iron claws attached
    To curbs 'neath holes where babies wail
    Though it shadows metal badge
    All and all can only fall
    With a crashing but meaningless blow
    No sound ever comes from the Gates of Eden

    The savage soldier sticks his head in sand
    And then complains
    Unto the shoeless hunter who's gone deaf
    But still remains
    Upon the beach where hound dogs bay
    At ships with tattooed sails
    Heading for the Gates of Eden

    With a time-rusted compass blade
    Aladdin and his lamp
    Sits with Utopian hermit monks
    Side saddle on the Golden Calf
    And on their promises of paradise
    You will not hear a laugh
    All except inside the Gates of Eden

    Relationships of ownership
    They whisper in the wings
    To those condemned to act accordingly
    And wait for succeeding kings
    And I try to harmonize with songs
    The lonesome sparrow sings
    There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden

    The motorcycle black madonna
    Two-wheeled gypsy queen
    And her silver-studded phantom cause
    The gray flannel dwarf to scream
    As he weeps to wicked birds of prey
    Who pick up on his bread crumb sins
    And there are no sins inside the Gates of Eden

    The kingdoms of Experience
    In the precious wind they rot
    While paupers change possessions
    Each one wishing for what the other has got
    And the princess and the prince
    Discuss what's real and what is not
    It doesn't matter inside the Gates of Eden

    The foreign sun, it squints upon
    A bed that is never mine
    As friends and other strangers
    From their fates try to resign
    Leaving men wholly, totally free
    To do anything they wish to do but die
    And there are no trials inside the Gates of Eden

    At dawn my lover comes to me
    And tells me of her dreams
    With no attempts to shovel the glimpse
    Into the ditch of what each one means
    At times I think there are no words
    But these to tell what's true
    And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden

    Bob Dylan - Subterranean Homesick Blues

    Johnny's in the basement
    Mixing up the medicine
    I'm on the pavement
    Thinking about the government
    The man in the trench coat
    Badge out, laid off
    Says he's got a bad cough
    Wants to get it paid off
    Look out kid
    It's somethin' you did
    God knows when
    But you're doin' it again
    You better duck down the alley way
    Lookin' for a new friend
    The man in the coon-skin cap
    In the big pen
    Wants eleven dollar bills
    You only got ten

    Maggie comes fleet foot
    Face full of black soot
    Talkin' that the heat put
    Plants in the bed but
    The phone's tapped anyway
    Maggie says that many say
    They must bust in early May
    Orders from the D. A.
    Look out kid
    Don't matter what you did
    Walk on your tip toes
    Don't try "No Doz"
    Better stay away from those
    That carry around a fire hose
    Keep a clean nose
    Watch the plain clothes
    You don't need a weather man
    To know which way the wind blows

    Get sick, get well
    Hang around a ink well
    Ring bell, hard to tell
    If anything is goin' to sell
    Try hard, get barred
    Get back, write braille
    Get jailed, jump bail
    Join the army, if you fail
    Look out kid
    You're gonna get hit
    But users, cheaters
    Six-time losers
    Hang around the theaters
    Girl by the whirlpool
    Lookin' for a new fool
    Don't follow leaders
    Watch the parkin' meters

    Ah get born, keep warm
    Short pants, romance, learn to dance
    Get dressed, get blessed
    Try to be a success
    Please her, please him, buy gifts
    Don't steal, don't lift
    Twenty years of schoolin'
    And they put you on the day shift
    Look out kid
    They keep it all hid
    Better jump down a manhole
    Light yourself a candle
    Don't wear sandals
    Try to avoid the scandals
    Don't wanna be a bum
    You better chew gum
    The pump don't work
    'Cause the vandals took the handles

    Bob Dylan - Motorpsycho Nightmare

    I pounded on a farmhouse
    Lookin' for a place to stay.
    I was mighty, mighty tired,
    I had gone a long, long way.
    I said, "Hey, hey, in there,
    Is there anybody home?"
    I was standin' on the steps
    Feelin' most alone.
    Well, out comes a farmer,
    He must have thought that I was nuts.
    He immediately looked at me
    And stuck a gun into my guts.

    I fell down
    To my bended knees,
    Saying, "I dig farmers,
    Don't shoot me, please!"
    He cocked his rifle
    And began to shout,
    "You're that travelin' salesman
    That I have heard about."
    I said, "No! No! No!
    I'm a doctor and it's true,
    I'm a clean-cut kid
    And I been to college, too."

    Then in comes his daughter
    Whose name was Rita.
    She looked like she stepped out of
    La Dolce Vita.
    I immediately tried to cool it
    With her dad,
    And told him what a
    Nice, pretty farm he had.
    He said, "What do doctors
    Know about farms, pray tell?"
    I said, "I was born
    At the bottom of a wishing well."

    Well, by the dirt 'neath my nails
    I guess he knew I wouldn't lie.
    "I guess you're tired,"
    He said, kinda sly.
    I said, "Yes, ten thousand miles
    Today I drove."
    He said, "I got a bed for you
    Underneath the stove.
    Just one condition
    And you go to sleep right now,
    That you don't touch my daughter
    And in the morning, milk the cow."

    I was sleepin' like a rat
    When I heard something jerkin'.
    There stood Rita
    Lookin' just like Tony Perkins.
    She said, "Would you like to take a shower?
    I'll show you up to the door."
    I said, "Oh, no! no!
    I've been through this before."
    I knew I had to split
    But I didn't know how,
    When she said,
    "Would you like to take that shower, now?"

    Well, I couldn't leave
    Unless the old man chased me out,
    'Cause I'd already promised
    That I'd milk his cows.
    I had to say something
    To strike him very weird,
    So I yelled out,
    "I like Fidel Castro and his beard."
    Rita looked offended
    But she got out of the way,
    As he came charging down the stairs
    Sayin', "What's that I heard you say?"

    I said, "I like Fidel Castro,
    I think you heard me right,"
    And ducked as he swung
    At me with all his might.
    Rita mumbled something
    'Bout her mother on the hill,
    As his fist hit the icebox,
    He said he's going to kill me
    If I don't get out the door
    In two seconds flat,
    "You unpatriotic,
    Rotten doctor Commie rat."

    Well, he threw a Reader's Digest
    At my head and I did run,
    I did a somersault
    As I seen him get his gun
    And crashed through the window
    At a hundred miles an hour,
    And landed fully blast
    In his garden flowers.
    Rita said, "Come back!"
    As he started to load
    The sun was comin' up
    And I was runnin' down the road.

    Well, I don't figure I'll be back
    There for a spell,
    Even though Rita moved away
    And got a job in a motel.
    He still waits for me,
    Constant, on the sly.
    He wants to turn me in
    To the F.B.I.
    Me, I romp and stomp,
    Thankful as I romp,
    Without freedom of speech,
    I might be in the swamp.

    And one more by The Man:

    Bob Dylan - Political World


    We live in a political world,
    Love don't have any place.
    We're living in times where men commit crimes
    And crime don't have a face

    We live in a political world,
    Icicles hanging down,
    Wedding bells ring and angels sing,
    clouds cover up the ground.

    We live in a political world,
    Wisdom is thrown into jail,
    It rots in a cell, is misguided as hell
    Leaving no one to pick up a trail.

    We live in a political world
    Where mercy walks the plank,
    Life is in mirrors, death disappears
    Up the steps into the nearest bank.

    We live in a political world
    Where courage is a thing of the past
    Houses are haunted, children are unwanted
    The next day could be your last.

    We live in a political world.
    The one we can see and can feel
    But there's no one to check, it's all a stacked deck,
    We all know for sure that it's real.

    We live in a political world
    In the cities of lonesome fear,
    Little by little you turn in the middle
    But you're never why you're here.

    We live in a political world
    Under the microscope,
    You can travel anywhere and hang yourself there
    You always got more than enough rope.

    We live in a political world
    Turning and a'thrashing about,
    As soon as you're awake, you're trained to take
    What looks like the easy way out.

    We live in a political world
    Where peace is not welcome at all,
    It's turned away from the door to wander some more
    Or put up against the wall.

    We live in apolitical world
    Everything is hers or his,
    Climb into the frame and shout God's name
    But you're never sure what it is.

    Not much at present, but I've been far too hooked of late on the Allen Toussaint release, "Yes We Can Can". Talk about a feel-good song. Should be devouring the charts, but such is the nature of payola.

    It is, of course, a song for New Orleans. Many thanks to listener-supported radio. Much like our beloved website, someday I will be able to afford giving public radio some money.

    See also, Wikipedia - Allen Toussaint, and NYNO Records.
