    LYRICS, POETRY, AND PROSE 171129

    A place to share some words of beauty, inspiration, and life. Like life, songs are both happy and sad. Today’s lyrics focus on love, loss, and longing. Miss Norah Jones singing at a remembrance for Steve Jobs. Garth Brooks singing about love and commitment. Bob Dylan and Norah Jones singing about sweet release. And finally, especially for my dear friend Mr. Larry “Lash” LaRue, who recently passed away, Bob Seeger’s Against the Wind. Click on the name of the piece to get a video or more information.

    May God bless and keep you always
    May your wishes all come true
    May you always do for others
    And let others do for you
    May you build a ladder to the stars
    And climb on every rung
    May you stay forever young
    Forever young, forever young
    May you stay forever young.

    Forever Young Singer: Norah Jones; Writer: Bob Dylan

    When the rain is blowin’ in your face
    And the whole world is on your case
    I would offer you a warm embrace
    To make you feel my love.

    Make You Feel My Love Singer Garth Brooks; Writer Bob Dylan

    They say ev’ry man needs protection
    They say ev’ry man must fall
    Yet I swear I see my reflection
    Some place so high above this wall
    I see my light come shining
    From the west unto the east
    Any day now, any day now
    I shall be released.

    I Shall Be Released Bob Dylan and Norah Jones, Writer Bob Dylan

    Against the wind
    I’m still runnin’ against the wind
    I’m older now but still runnin’ against the wind
    Well I’m older now and still runnin’
    Against the wind.

    Against the Wind Singer and writer Bob Seger
