Blast From the Past…

…It Don’t Come Easy – Ringo Starr

Open up your heart, let’s come together,
Use a little love
And we will make it work out better,

I don’t ask for much, I only want your trust,
And you know it don’t come easy.
And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
And you know it don’t come easy.

drunk on the moon

He’s still the keeper of my flame

The speaker of my secret name

The guiding hand, the history

The heart, the soul, the willow tree

The things we never can regain

You close around me like the night

and set fidelity to flight

The fire burns, the tender touch

The hollow words that mean so much

And feed this restless appetite

I lost my head

I said things I’ll come to regret

When I was drunk on the moon

You seemed so sure

Turning the key to my door

When I was drunk on the moon

Drove past your place again today

A little virtue slipped away

The wheels they turn, the old routines

You ring the changes unforeseen

And sow the seeds of disarray

I lost my head

I said things I’ll come to regret

When I was drunk on the moon

You seemed so sure

Turning the key to my door

When I was drunk on the moon

LOVEview…IOU

Well this flower is my soul
But it’s not half of what I owe
I should give you every rose that I ever grew
But take this one here for a start
And you can keep it in your heart
I have everything I need because of you

Kasey Chambers – The Flower

I ask the river for a sign

Heart Of Stone

Beneath the white fire of the moon
Love’s wings are broken all too soon
We never learn
Hurt together, hurt alone
Don’t you sometimes

Wish your heart was a heart of stone
We turn the wheel, and break the chain
Put steel to steel, and laugh at pain
We’re dreamers in castle’s made of sand
The road to Eden’s overgrown

Don’t you sometimes
Wish your heart was a heart of stone
Look at the headlines
Big crowd at the crazy house
Long cue for the joker’s shoe
Ten rounds in the ring with love
Do you lose and win

Or win and lose
Sweet rain, like mercy in the night
(Lay me down, wash away the sorrow)
Caress my soul and set it right
(Lay me down, show me your tomorrow)
Summer tears, winter and the moment’s flown

Don’t you sometimes
Wish your heart was a heart of stone
Mercy, mercy, wish your heart was a heart of stone

Get the picture
No room for the innocent
Peak season in lonely town
Knocked out of the ring by love
Are you down and up

Or up and down
I ask the river for a sign
(In a dream, we go on together)
How long is love supposed to shine
(In a dream, diamonds are forever
But you and I, hurt together, hurt alone

Don’t you sometimes
Wish you heart was a heart of stone
Mercy, mercy, wish your heart was a heart of stone
(With a heart of stone, you’ll be well protected)

Don’t you sometimes
Wish your heart was made of stone
(With a heart of stone, you’ll be well connected)
