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
