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)

branch stacking for PEACE

They sampled my fruit and made trophies from my leaves.  Branches are now stripped bare and strategically stacked for the ceremonial bonfire.  As I send out the last twig, with a first-class pigeon named Hope, I honour those before me and offer to light the spark in your bonfire heart.

stuck on you

 

REAL me back!

Flying high with my wildest dreams

Until the wind enforced some changes

High as a kite with the promise of love

Letting go to a world full of strangers
