And This

“All I know is in sleep, I can taste and feel need. Life alone makes me shake, if I die before I wake. Every drop that I bleed, it’s a gift You give me. Let me spend my skin on you. Kiss me, whisper, make me new. I’m a creature for your love.

On the day I come home and look at You and Your throne, every joy I’ve seen is a waste when I touch Your gorgeous face. I’m a creature for your love.”

My Shadow Of Eden

Which do I long for more?
Which do I want to hear,
Standing in the woods alone,
The music of man,
Or the music of nature?

I know not.
I thank God for music all the same,
And I long for you, my love,
To hear, to see, to feel,
What I, in this moment, do.

To know, more than ever,
What Eden might have been,
To see what Adam might have seen,
To experience a shadow,
Of how Adam might have known God.

These trees,
Are the trees of life.
This river,
Water for my soul.
And you… You are my Eve.

I wish you were here,
To walk with me,
To talk with me,
And I wish I could embrace you,
The way these woods are embracing me.

Music That Moves You #4 (Top 5 of Spring 2011)

Death and All His Friends

Passionate song. Makes me feel good. Makes me want to dance. The best part is towards the end.

AS ALWAYS LISTEN TO IT LOUD

No I don’t wanna battle from beginning to end;
I don’t wanna cycle love, recycle revenge;
I don’t wanna follow death and all his friends.

Death And All His Friends – Viva La Vida – Coldplay

PyroDon’t really know what I like about this song. I guess the way he sings it, sounds as though it is coming from deep down.

AS ALWAYS LISTEN TO IT LOUD

All the black inside me
Is slowly seeping from the bone.
Everything I cherish
Is slowly dying, or it’s gone.

I won’t ever be your cornerstone

Pyro – Come Around Sundown – Kings of Leon

I mean he uses a tornado as a metaphor for love, how can you not like this song. Plus its soothing and makes you want to sit on the patio with a summer breeze and a beer.

AS ALWAYS LISTEN TO IT LOUD

You grow, you roar
Although disguised
I know you
You’ll learn to know
You grow, you grow like tornado
You grow from the inside

I wonder if I’m allowed ever to see
I wonder if I’m allowed to ever be free

Tornado – Go – Jonsi

Another song that makes me want to dance. Melancholy, but doesn’t make me sad. Beautiful song.

AS ALWAYS LISTEN TO IT LOUD

I will shape myself into your pocket
Invisible
Do what you want

Slowly we unfurl
As lotus flowers
‘Cos all I want is the moon upon a stick
Just to see what if
Just to see what is
I can’t kick your habit
Just to fill your fast ballooning head
Listen to your heart

Lotus Flower – King of Limbs – Radiohead

It’s The National… What more needs to be said? I could put almost all of their stuff on here. Love it!

AS ALWAYS LISTEN TO IT LOUD

Today you were far away
and I didn’t ask you why
What could I say
I was far away
You just walked away
and I just watched you
What could I say

How close am I to losing you?

About Today – Cherry Tree – The National

Beautiful Hymns From “The Thin Red Line”

Melanesian Choirs expressing their love for Jesus.

Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blong Mi

Jesus is watching over me;
Wherever I may go he is right beside me;
Jesus is watching over me;
No matter what I do his love will never cease;
My saviour and my keeper beside me;
All the blessings he has provided me;
He is there to comfort and guide me;
And his love will never cease.

God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi

From the hymn ‘ Take My Life and Let It Be’ by Frances R. Havergal, (1874):

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every powr as Thou shalt choose.
Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Barry McGuire – Eve Of Destruction

Mount of the Olives

August is end of the world month for me haha. I thought I would post this to go with my last post. It is a great song.

Eve Of Destruction – Barry McGuire

The eastern world it is explodin’,
violence flarin’, bullets loadin’,
you’re old enough to kill but not for votin’,
you don’t believe in war, what’s that gun you’re totin’,
and even the Jordan river has bodies floatin’,
but you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.

Don’t you understand, what I’m trying to say?
Can’t you see the fears that I’m feeling today?
If the button is pushed, there’s no running away,
There’ll be no one to save with the world in a grave,
take a look around you, boy, it’s bound to scare you, boy,
and you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.

Yeah, my blood’s so mad, feels like coagulatin’,
I’m sittin’ here, just contemplatin’,
I can’t twist the truth, it knows no regulation,
handful of Senators don’t pass legislation,
and marches alone can’t bring integration,
when human respect is disintegratin’,
this whole crazy world is just too frustratin’,
and you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
but when you return, it’s the same old place,
the poundin’ of the drums, the pride and disgrace,
you can bury your dead, but don’t leave a trace,
hate your next-door-neighbour, but don’t forget to say grace,
and you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend,
you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.
no no you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.

Eve Of Destruction

Bloc Party – This Modern Love

Bloc Party - Modern Love

Next to Banquet, This Modern Love is probably Silent Alarm’s best song. So Good. Enjoy

This Modern Love

To be lost in the forest
To be cut adrift
You’ve been trying to reach me
You bought me a book
To be lost in the forest
To be cut adrift
I’ve been paid
I’ve been paid
Don’t get offended
If I seem absent minded
Just keep telling me facts
And keep making me smile
Don’t get offended
If I seem absent minded
I get tongue-tied
Baby, you’ve got to be more discerning
I’ve known never known what’s good for me
I will be yours
I’ll pay for you anytime
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness
Well jump on, enjoy, you can gorge away
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness
Jump right on
Baby, you’ve got to be more discerning
I’ve known never known what’s good for me
Baby, you’ve got to be more demanding
I will be yours
What are you holding out for?
What’s always in the way?
Why so damn absent-minded?
Why so scared of romance?
This modern love breaks me
This modern love wastes me
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?
Tell me facts, tell me facts, tell me facts
Tell me facts
Throw your arms around me

Silent Alarm

Bloc Party – Banquet

Banquet, next to Tulips, is probably Bloc Party’s best song.

Banquet – Bloc Party

A heart of stone, a smoking gun
I can give you life, I can take it away

A heart of stone, a smoking gun
I’m working it out
Why’d you feel so underrated?
Why’d you feel so negated?

Turning away from the light
Becoming adult
Turning into my soul
I wanted to bite not destroy
To feel her underneath
Turning into my soul

She don’t think straight
She’s got such a dirty mind and it never ever stops
And you don’t taste like her and you never ever will
And we don’t read the papers, we don’t read the news
Heaven’s never enough, we will never be fooled

And if you feel a little left behind
I will see you on the other side

Cos I’m on fire
I’m on fire when you come

I’m on fire so stub me out

Music That Moves You #3

Only recently did I discover the magic and beauty that is the world of movie scores. Some of this music has the potential to move you to tears. I never thought a piece of music could ever do that to me, (I had heard people talk about music doing that to them, but to be honest I thought they were full of crap.) but his music stirs me deeply. So in the spirit of passing it on to others, I thought I would transfer the beauty on to yall. I guess I should thank Hans Zimmer, because to be honest I am strictly speaking of his work.

Journey to the Line Hans Zimmer (The Thin Red Line)

This piece of music moves me on a spiritual level particularly near the beginning with the build up to the climax of the song, the rest is beautiful, but that initial build up is most moving for me. I picture lovers, I picture the epic struggle of war, I sense sorrow, and loss, but also a sense of redemption. Part of it probably from the movie itself, but much of it in my own life too. I picture scenes from Passion of the Christ as well.

Bloc Party – Tulips

This has to be one of Bloc Party’s best songs next to ‘Banquet’ and ‘Kreuzberg.’ I love Bloc Party because I feel they ask all the essential questions about modern life and culture. They constantly point out the flaws of society and hopelessness of drugs, alcohol, and the club scene while ironically appealing to all of those scenes in Europe and the U.S.

The Lyrics to Tulips are below. Tulips was on an unreleased Remix album of Another Weekend in The City and the Tulips Single

Tulips

When you said tulips
I knew that you’re mine
When I caught you there
Crying in the night
Wearing my jacket
Wearing that smile
I knew that I’d found you

This could be an opportunity

Were you unawares
Did it catch you out?
Or did it break you in
Right from the start
It’s as pure as fire
It’s as pure as snow
I knew that I’d found you

This could be an opportunity
If you promise to let it grow

‘Cos you’re the one I love
