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
