    LYRICS, POETRY AND PROSE 170807

    A place to share some words of beauty, inspiration, and fun. Life and love, hurts and loss, sadness and pain. And sometimes what remains is music and art. Then the years go by and the hurts fade but the memories remain. This week we revisit three songs by two old lovers – Steven Stills and Judy Collins. Click on the name of the piece to get a video or more information.

    It’s getting to the point where I’m no fun anymore
    I am sorry
    Sometimes it hurts so badly I must cry out loud
    I am lonely

    I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
    You make it hard

    Remember what we’ve said and done and felt about each other
    Oh, babe have mercy
    Don’t let the past remind us of what we are not now
    I am not dreaming

    I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
    You make it hard

    Suite Judy Blue Eyes Group: Crosby Stills and Nash; Writer: Stephen Stills

    Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearby
    Awaiting a word
    Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit he runs
    Wishing he could fly
    Only to trip at the sound of goodbye

    Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders
    At the empty place inside
    Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams he worries
    Did he hear a good-bye?
    Or even hello?

    Helplessly Hoping Singer Judy Collins, Writer Stephen Stills

    There’s a young man that I know, his age is twenty one
    Comes from down in Southern Colorado
    Just out of the service and he’s lookin’ for his fun
    Someday soon goin’ with him someday soon

    My parents cannot stand him ’cause he rides the rodeo
    My father says that he will leave me cryin’
    I would follow him right down the toughest road I know
    Someday soon goin’ with him someday soon

    Someday Soon Singer Judy Collins, Writer Ian Tyson
