Have you ever fallen into a song?
Lost your way and used the melody to bring you back?
Have you ever joined Dougie MacLean on the road to "Caledonia"
sat fireside while the strings resonate with thoughts of yesterday
hope for tomorrow and an acceptance of the end.
It makes me cry...every time.
Have you ever spent the day getting stoned with Dylan?
Everybody should...at least once
Feel the hope for better and the desire to join together
We don't feel enough any more.
Have you ever rode the storm with the Lizard King
Black light romance, lost in the poetry
waking up and wondering how you got there
realizing you could care less...all about the trip, rather than the destination?
Have you ever been forced to sing grave side
through tears and memories
seeing hearts remember as they join in
lifting the legacy of a loved one to the heavens, a flight of grace
Have you ever sold your soul to the devil
Caught up in the pit, screaming guitars
bass pumping heavy in your chest while your body contorts
distorted by hands not your own carrying you over to the dark side, South of Heaven
Have you ever skinny~dipped beyond the edge of midnight
Bodies spirited, co-mingling, sticky sweet like glycerin
while the car radio sends subliminal messages of debauchery
Turns me into a Crazy Bitch...intoxicated, no inhibition
Have you ever been alone, hugging a pillow that reeks of memory
while a Northern Wind blows through the room
and you fight to forget all the Little Hells you've been put through
praying desperately for reason.
I'm just a song about a girl
waiting to be written
while stealing inspiration
for my soundtrack.
And the bands play on...
It's OpenLinkNight over at dVerse today...and I'm still looking for my song ;) See you at the pub...linking up at 3pmEST with Grace (@asweetlust) behind the bar.
