Cooperation

How is it that Love can see a servant

Body Mind and soul?

When we look upon the body

Laboring for it's tithe

Knowing all along

That it's destined to die

Knowing all along

That it's destined to die

While our hands and feet assist us

In Everything we do

To manifest

All our ideas

Watch us garden and toil for our food

Create all the needs and the uses

For the tools and the schools

While the myths of drama play out on the wheel

Chorus:

Would you call it the truth

When we're destined to die?

Would you say it's no use

To even try to love it

Would you call it the truth

Or would you call it abuse

Would you say it's no use

To even try to love it?

Oh the body is so dependent on you

When you woke up one day beyond your soul

And you Realize that God IS in control

How is it

That love can see a servant?

Of the body mind and soul

Chorus:

Would you call it the truth

That we're destined to die?

Would you say it's no use

To even try to love it

Would you call it the truth

Sometimes call it abuse

And I say it's no use

To even try to love it!

Oh the body is so dependent on me

Anwser:

In a moment in time a thought could purely attain

Cooperation

In a moment in time a thought could surely sustain

Cooperation

In a moment in time the power of love attained

Cooperation

Body Mind and Soul

Oh The Power of Love

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

oooh ooh ohohohooh

Journey


What is this wall made up of?
What is this wall Youíre so proud of
Are Your hands tied My love?
Is the pain too great my Love?

Iíll go with you
On your journey
Many companions by our side

To dede dede dede
Dede dede-delight in life
To Dede dede de de
Dede dede-light in life

I know itís hard to face ourselves sometimes
We project our fears
And hide them in the face of another
Are your hands tied my Love
Is the fear too great my Love
Is there no other solution

Iíll go with you
On your Journey
Many companions by our side

oooh
lalalalalalalalalalala

I know you are perfect
Perfectly harmless
And in the face of abuse
Release has not far to go

Real ease has not far to go
You donít have to learn what you already know

To De De dede
De de dede-light in life

Iíll go with you
On your journey
Many companions by our side

oh la la lala la la la la lala la la la

CU-SeeMe


It's good to C
Your being gentle with your new friends now
It's nice to have
The distance from the me
Thoughts
There's time for easy thoughts now
Time for easy thoughts
And I can look upon with a smile on my face

Chorus:
You found it love
You found it
You found it love
You found it
You have found your place
And I can look upon with a smile on my face
(I can look upon the smile on your face)

It's good to see
You helping out the lonely ones
It's nice to know
You found a way to have your fun
Thoughts
There's time for easy thoughts Now
Time for easy thoughts
And I can look upon your smile
And I can look upon with a smile
I can look upon the smile on your face
Chorus

Identity (Love Remains)

I guess we're just not gonna make it through
Images and dreams they never do
There there's no hunger and no pain
There's no place for GUILT to reign
No ideas of Hate remain to obscure the truth

Where only Love remains
Only love remains

Well I guess we're just not gonna make it through
Naw images and dreams they never do
There there's no bodies made of dust
There's no currency in which to trust
There's no work to take there is no loss to gain
Where only Love remains
Only love remains

We hold on to our power
We hold onto every hour
We have the strength of a flower in the breeze

Where only Love remains
Only Love remains

I guess we're just not going to make it through
No Images and dreams they never do
There there's no tragedy or fame
There's no man and woman flame
There's no urges left to tame
There is no Me and You

Chorus:
Where only Love remains
Only Love remains

We hear the words of the wise
We wipe the sleep from our teary eyes
A call for Love could make our dreams come true
And our dreams come true
And our nightmares too
But they don't make it through
No Images and dreams they never do

Ideas of love and hate
Passions have sealed our fate
A call for Love could make our dreams come true
And our dreams come true
But they don't make it through
No images and dreams they never do

Chorus:
Where only Love remains
Only Love remains
Where only Love remains
Only Love remains
Only Love remains
Only Love..

Da Door

Did we really make it happen?
We are standing at the door
Did we really make it happen ?
When we demanded more
Maybe we forgot what the door is for

Is this the way we really see it?
Is that what we really said
We agreed at the door
To go by these rules and nothing more

Now we must confess
We got something less
We demanded something more than everything
And we got something less

I guess the victim here
Is the one who's calling the shots
We agreed at the door
To go by these rules
Maybe we forgot what the rules are for

Did we really make it happen?
Could we really make it happen? Ha ha
We are standing at the door
Maybe weíll remember what the door is for
Maybe we'll realize what the love is for.

MY OWN
(Obsession)

Please do not disturb me
I Ďm preoccupied
With my own depression now

Itís my job see
And the love of my life
It's my design somehow

Yes it is mine I claim it as my own
It is this I will not deny
YOU You want to take it away
But it's mine yes It's mine...yes it's mine , Itís all mine


Do not instruct me
For I am wise
To you and your Unity

So long forgotten
Been Entertained with lies
Pretending impurity

I keep depression close
My Own Personal Host
It is this I will not deny
And YOU You would seduce me with Light
But it's bright , yes itís bright, yes it's bright it's too bright,
Though itís mine

Do not admonish
For your mind
Is what empowers mine

Personal comforts
Indulging in mundane
Distorting our view in time

Please see me free of
Remorse and humility
Though warm and cozy am I
And YOU You want me to see
But I'm blind yes I'm blind yes Iím blind, Itís too bright
but it's mine!!

Do not disturb me Iím preoccupied.

REASON TO DANCE
(Seattle Rain)

Sometimes I go there
But it's just not the same
It's better of course here
In the Seattle rain

Sent back through time
In my mind
Catching the Midnight train
To the Pain
And the memory that stains forbidden
The memory remains unhidden
Though it's just not the same
In the Seattle rain

I washed them all away
In the Seattle rain

Life
Pours through the sleeve
Sifts through the sieve
Sooner or later
The love of the heart must bleed
From imagined Lack and Loss and greed
When it's All given
It's all given

Life
Pours through the sieve
Slips through the sleeve
Sooner or later
The love of the heart is freed
Yes we all leave
Yet it's all given
Realize All is given

We're relieved
Reprieved
It's just not the same
You'll find me dancin'
In the Seattle rain
You find me dancin'
In the Seattle rain
When it's all given
It's all given

Willing

If you want to be here with Him
All you have to do is go there
If you want to go there with Him
All you have to do is be here

I must have been wrong
Surely
I made a mistake
I hope
I hope Iíve been wrong
Ďcause I donít like the way I feel

If You want to see clear with Him
All you have to do is go there
If you want to go there with Him
All you have to do is see clear

I must have been blind
Surely
Iím looking through fog
I hope
I hope Iíve been blind
'cause I donít like the way I feel

Iím willing
So willing
Iím willing to see things differently
Iím willing
So willing
Iím willing to see

What do We do?


What do we do with the image in our eye?
We twist it and turn it
Ignore it and discern it
We fake it and learn it
Embrace it and burn it
Love's parasite that frees us from our mind
We crawl or fly
We brawl or sigh
We live or die
Distort it and report it on the sly
What do we do?
What do we do
What do we do??
Is it the method of our madness
Saddness...gladness?
Ahhhhh ahhhhhhhh
Bridge:
Fleeting moments of knowing what we've done
While feigning questions of why...!!!
How could I be deceived by a wonder in the making?
Seduced by eyes of black and white
Abort ignite
Betray it and we slay it in the light
What do we do
What do we do
What do we do???
Is it the method in our madness
Gladness sadnesss...

Mythology

Mythology
That's what I thought it was
They were sure that they were right
They were sure they were all right
I just ignored them

It's the medical defense
Chemicals commence
To fluctuate the brain
And the fireworks again claim their fame
In the name

Mythology
That's what I think it was
I was sure that you were right
I was sure that we were all right
It's always the same
I'm back where I began
All I notice is the rain
I see the role I play
Do I want to do that movie again?
Who made this spin?
To begin

It could happen in a moment
The intensity we feel
Could throw us off the wheel
To where we began
To where it all ends
In the great beyond

Beyond

Mythology
That's what I thought it was
I was sure that they all were right
I was sure that they were all right
Charted paths amongst the stars
Saturn Jupiter and Mars
Surely we have traveled far
To know who and where we are
Beyond

Mythology


Mythology
That's what I thought it was
And I was sure that they were alright
And I was sure that they were alright
But They just ignored me

Unfunded Mandate


I know of one who is paid in full
He doesn't even pay a toll
He put aside the golden bull
And went his merry way
Living free la la la la la la la lala
Living Free la la la la la la lala

The truth is
That the idea of dying is upon us all
And the vanity of living free is a pipe dream fall
Fall la la la la la la la lala la
Fall la la la la la la la lala la

The truth is we're all paying
The truth is we die to play in
The truth is we buy to stay in
So that we can say we must be living free
Living Free la la la la la la la lala
Living Free la la la la la la lala
Fall la la la la la la la lala la

I let the art direct my ignorance
Find specialness is a soul offence
Laziness is a consequence
Of Hard work at social circumstance
What is it that we're bound to pay anyway
So we can pretend and claim the price we pay
Will keep us living free?
Living Free la la la la la la la lala
Living Free la la la la la la lala
Fall la la la la la la la lala la

I know of one who is paid in full
She doesn't even pay a toll
She put aside the golden bull
And went her Mary way
Living free la la la la la la la lala
Living Free la la la la la la lala

The Garden Song


Come my love into my garden
Where I have turned the soil
And planted the seeds

Come my love into my garden
Where I have turned the soil
And planted the seeds

Come into my garden
Take and eat of the fruit of my labor
Come into my garden
Take and eat of the fruit of my labor
The fruit that bears my passions
The fruit that bares my vision

Love directed
A diversion for a lonely heart
Love directed
A diversion for a lonely heart
As a dry seed to the soil
See I haven't faded into nothing
I haven't rotted in the rain
The seed has sprouted and grown

I have used my mind
My creative hands and my soul
I have used my creative mind
My hands and my soul

Love directed
Fulfillment of an open heart
Come into my garden
The fulfillment of an open heart
I have grown from the earth
Oh oh oh now partake of my heart
For

I am

Lighten UP

I said that was dumb
Just looking for a rise
I was only Kidding
It was all for fun
You took it so seriously

I said I didn't come for love
Just looking for a rise
I was only kidding
It was all for fun
You took it
So seriously

Stand up look around
Contemplate don't deprecate yourself
Look at your shoes
Question yourself
Contemplate
Don't disintegrate yourself

You don't have to be
So Agreeable

I said
Don't bump your head anew
Look where you are going
Stand up look around
Positive identity
A deluge of diversity
A symphony of harmony

The world is a playground
Not a prison
A thought paradise
For nature and man

You don't have to be
You don't have to be
So Serious (Virtual)

Rise up
Come inside
Have a cup of tea
Everything is better
Answers are everywhere.
Your questions are the dreams
Elegant simplicity complexity in ever changing permanence
Touch the supra consciousness

Rise up
Come inside
Everything is better
Answers are everywhere
Your questions are the dreams
Elegant simplicity complexity in ever changing permanence
You don't have to be
You don't have to be
So Beautiful

Twinkle

The depth of love here surprises me
It holds no aching pain
The love we've been for so long
It's lived it's not explained
I know of a love
That has spanned through time
And in but a moment Eternity is mine
It's yours and it's mine

We must have been caught
In the wink of an eye

I have a memory
Of a love unblind
And in but an instant Eternity is mine
It's yours and it's mine

You must be that light
In the twinkle of my eye
I must be that light
In the twinkle of your eyes
In the twinkle of my eye
In the twinkle of an eye

Mothers' Love

Lyrics Parker James

When you finally came by to see me
You invited all my friends
The production was three days time
And with money you made your amends
And as I look down upon you now
I wonder in my heart
What was so damned important that you insisted we live apart?

Chorus:
You're finally on your own now
Living life alone now
Said it didn't matter anyhow
A mothers Love forever gone
Just open your eyes my only son
Can't you feel it?
Can't you see it?

Standing at the chapel door you greeted everyone
Dressed in your best three piece suit
Shoelaces still undone
After managing a tear or two
It was one of Bett's songs that you chose
Something we may never understand
The meaning of love
Is not 'The Rose'

Chorus:
You're finally on your own now
Living life alone now
Said it didn't matter anyhow
A mothers Love forever gone
Just open your eyes my only son
Can't you feel it?
Can't you see it?

Just one last look before I go
The lid is almost down
And for all those standing here
You display an expected frown
And now the farewell is completed my body is carried away
Tell me was it worth it son
To pretend that you love me today?

Chorus:
You're finally on your own now
Living life alone now
Said it didn't matter anyhow
A mothers Love forever gone
Just open your eyes my only son
Can't you feel it?
Can't you see it?

Forever gone?

BYE BUY LOVE

AED DAE

I heard she bribed you with a car
Now so uninspired
You do her bidding,
When she reprimands

You hope she's kidding,
She can't see who you are
Now you understand
 

Chorus:
That's what cha get
That's what cha get when ya buy love
That's what cha get when you're bought
Bye buy love
Bye buy love
 

The divorce it left you such a mess

She's not holding back

She wants your money

She's hid away on crack

Hey it's not funny

Now the children must confess

that they understand.

 

Chorus:

That's what cha get
That's what chat get when ya buy love
That's what cha get when you're bought
Bye buy love
Bye buy love

 

Bridge: (spoken)
Little green notes
Plastic cards
Are perceived to measure the worth of a soul.
Why do they say we're worth more than gold?
Why do they say we're worth more than gold?
That's not what we get.


See him sleeping in the street
Who is this man?
Where is his mother?
Who will lend a hand?
Where is his brother?
And the people that he meets.
Who will understand?


That's what cha get
That's what chat get when ya buy love
That's what cha get when you're bought
Bye buy love
Bye buy love

Bridge: (spoken)
Little green notes
Plastic cards
Are perceived to measure the worth of a soul.
Why do they say we're worth more than gold?
Why do they say we're worth more than gold?
That's not what we get.

Chorus: fini

In a Civilized World

10/02 ©2002 Jeanna Gollihur

 

Why say you want to protect me?

Why say I need your protection?

I thought we lived

In a civilized world

 

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

 

I thought we lived in a civilized world

I must have been mistaken

Werenít the nobles supposed to keep

A code of honor?

Who changed the rules?

This American Dream of mine canít come true

Since the nobles failed to protect me

 

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

 

Aristocratic Wannabeís

Take it all

As honor among thieves

A war for oil could it be

The Apocalypse

I sure hope you believe

 

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

In a civilized world

Lifeís Revelry

Maybe I may never see through different eyes

Maybe mine is not the story told

But there are times I can surely see

Life is just the way it aught to be

 

Maybe I will see Iím living fairytales

Images projected on a screen

Just like a cartoon character

Searching for her maker

As if Life Itself were waiting for itís big scene

If you know what I mean

But there are times I can surely see

Life is just the way it aught to be

 

The lights are on

Itís time for the big scene

Camera action itís Lifeís revelry

But there are times I can surely see

Life is just the way it aught to be

 

Maybe I will see Iím writing alibis

Maybe Iím not the one whoís wise

But there are times I can surely see

Life is just the way it aught to be

 Yes there are times I can surely see

Life is just the way it aught to be

Red River Hot Springs

Itís another Sunny winters day in the hot tub

At Red River

And Iím dreaminí

Dreamin' my life away

(dreamin about my baby)

 

Just another sunny winterís day in the Hot tub

With my baby

And We're dreaming

Dreaminí that we could stay

(stay in the tub forever)

 

I havenít seen that old freeway

For more than a month now

And though I plan to go back to city ways

Iím just not sure now

 

Cause itís another sunny winters day in the hot tub

At Red River

And Iím dreaminí

Dreamin my life away

 

 

Sometimes we work those Long hard days

Working through the evening

WE always find the time to play

Life sure is pleasiní

 

 On another Sunny winters day in the hot tub

At Red River

But here come some snow cattersí

Looks like Iím working today

 

 

You drive on up the ole Clearwater

On past Elk City

Past the ranger station where the pavement ends

Ainít the meadow pretty

 

On another Sunny Sunny winters day in that ole hot tub

At Red River

Where?

 Red River Hot springs

Near Elk city Idaho

Perceptions

When you look at me this way

I'm not the same to you

It doesn't matter what I say

Even if it's not true

So I guess its just best

Just best to say nothing at all

 

Perceptions deceive

I understand this

But you won't believe

I can see

You're not who I see

So mean and so cruel

That's not who you are

So I guess it's just best to say nothing at all.

 

Two sides to every question

One answer is pure

If we look for the good in each other

The love is assured

The love is assured

 

 

Perceptions deceive

I understand this

But you won't believe

I can see

I'm not who you see

So mean and so cruel

That's not who I am

So I guess it's just best

To say nothing at all

 

Two sides to every question

One answer is pure

If we look for the good in each other

The love is assured

 

 

So I guess it just best

Just best to say nothing at all....

Hold Out     

dm em  F

 It wasnít a mellow dance

And yet it was

There were times

Time went into slow motion

Ooooooooooh baby

I wonít dance with you anymore

I think itís time now to detach

 

Chorus:

(1st) The Longer I can hold out the weaker you become

The Strength Iíd have inside me (2nd The strength I have now)

If my heart werenít on the run       (2nd my heartsí no longer on the run)

Oooh if I could hold out hold out hold out  (2nd I can hold out I can hold out I can hold out)

I need the strength now                   (2nd I have the strength now)

To hold out

 

I let myself get comfortable with that look in your eyes

I relaxed I relaxed way too much

Not waiting for you is so hard to do

Oh...

Heart Beat 

Came into my program

Saw the light shining through

So much compassion

Baby itís you

Baby itís you

 

I tried to fight it    Not knowing how far it could go

I had such fear it   Blinded me to my very soul

How was I to know

How was I to know?

 

(chorus)

I feel your heart beat In my own

I know your eyes see where I belong

Baby itís you

Baby itís you

 

I know the man now        Inside of you

I know your heart man       And I know its true

Baby itís you

And I know that itís true

 

And when you take me       Into the night

You know you make me     Feel just right

Baby itís you

Baby itís you

(Chorus)

 

Bridge:

There is no other        Iíve ever known

And youíre my lover        Love has surely grown

Like Iíve never known

Love has surely grown

Shadow Boxing with You again

Uhuhhum

Shadow Boxing with You again

Shadow Boxing with You again

Uhuhhum

Which Way

If you donít start talking sense

I will lose my mind

Sitting here on the fence

We have flipped the dime

 

Which way will you go?

Which way will you go?

Which way will you go?

 

Itís hard to read between the lines

It hurts to even try

You tell me that you are mine

Please donít make me cry

 

Which way will you go?

Which way will you go?

Which way will you go?

 

Arenít we a funny sight

I donít really want to fight

Out here in the middle of the road

Standing here all night

Little closer hold me tight

I am getting cold

 

 Which way will you go?

Which way will you go?

Which way will you go?

Safe Place

 

Safe Place in my Home if your heart is sore

Youíre welcome at my door

No need to worry no more

Iíll relax your shoulders

Weíll share a cup of tea

Thereís always a light to cope in

And the door is always open

 

Oh the door is Always open so come on in

A different timing everyday

Thereís a lot to do to keep you busy

You put your mind at ease

 

A Safe place in my home if your heart is sore

Youíre welcome at my door

No need to worry no more.
