John Mellencamp – Crumblin’ Down…

Some people ain’t no damn good, you can’t trust ’em, you can’t love ’em
No good deed goes unpunished
And I don’t mind bein’ their whippin’ boy
I’ve had that pleasure for years and years…

it was all just a dream…

Dreamer7
It was late in August
he was saying something like
I’m begging you
and I’ve never begged
for anything in my life
He remembers your answer
of cold, stark silence
At least it wasn’t
a replay of the prior year
But hell, you can only
do that to a soul once
Although you didn’t mean it
as poverty leaked from your pen

There was this dream once
You had a delirious, high fever
and were calling out my name
No one knew what to make of this
Who was this poet being summoned?
Someone found the letters
Your father pleaded with me
In a flash, the image came to me
Christ knocking on the door
of a heart

Wasn’t this you and me?
And everyone else for that matter?
Then I awoke and realized
it was all just a dream…

“the various paths they may take toward a reunion with the Twin Self, and the danger, once the other half has been found, of both becoming what have been called ‘fallen angels,’ destroying their sacred, for-eons-awaited Oneness through the grave sins of false pride, selfishness… and unforgiveness.”                                          – Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

Sarah McLachlan – River…

“River”
It’s coming on Christmas
They’re cutting down trees
They’re putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
But it don’t snow here
It stays pretty green
I’m going to make a lot of money
Then I’m going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I’m so hard to handle
I’m selfish and I’m sad
Now I’ve gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It’s coming on Christmas
They’re cutting down trees
They’re putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
– Sarah McLachlan
