Tagging the word "SUN"

"The Golden Age"

Put your hands on the wheel
Let the golden age begin
Let the window down
Feel the moonlight on your skin
Let the desert wind
Cool your aching head
Let the weight of the world
Drift away instead

These day I barely get by
I don't even try

It's a treacherous road
With a desolated view
There's distant lights
But here they're far and few
And the sun don't shine
Even when its day
You gotta drive all night
Just to feel like you're ok

These days I barely get by
I don't even try

This good Day

Morning sun and morning glories
Pouring down the hill,
Through my window
I can feel the ocean breeze.
Noisy sparrows fill the oak trees
Swallows can't stay still,
And in the glad commotion
LORD, You speak to me

If rain clouds come
Or the cold winds blow,
You're THE ONE Who goes before me
And in my heart I KNOW

This good day
It is a gift from You.
The world is turning in its place
because You made it to.
I lift my voice
To sing a song of praise
On this good day.

I will walk to Woodman's Cove,
The fishing boats are leaving,
Seagulls follow just above the water.
I will wait until the sunset
Brings them home again,
Rigging lines and anchors in the harbor.

If rain clouds come
Or the cold winds blow,
You're the One Who goes before me
And in my heart I know

This good day
It is a gift from You.
The world is turning in its place
because You made it to.
I lift my voice
To sing a song of praise
On this good Day.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' MAN
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin',
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man.

My father was a gambler down in Georgia,
And he wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin' down highway 41.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man,
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin',
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man.

I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin',
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee,
They're always having a good time down on the bayou, Lord
Them Delta women think the world of me.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man,
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin',
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man.

This is for Texas Woman

From Guy Clark's Grammy nominated album "My favorite picture of You".
His wife died in 2012. Guy is ill now.

SHE's a long way from Houston, long way from those Texas blues
And she came down from Telluride on a steam train bound for somewhere new.
There's a rainbow in the mountains and she's waiting on the sun to shine on through.
You can't tell the tears from the rain if you ain't walked a mile in her boots.

Chorus
Standing in the rain in Durango
Right side of wrong, wrong side of gone
Standing in the rain in Durango
She's waiting on some cowboy to lasso her heart and take her home.

Fell in with some field hippies went needle dancing in a tie dye dress.
Then a Rocky Mountain rain came and they all got soakin' wet.
She wound up with a backstage pass, hangin' with the pickers in the band,
'Til her heart got broke by a banjo man, now she's had all the bluegrass she can stand.

Chorus

She had all of her belongings in a cardboard suitcase sittin' by her side.
And she had no destination, she was just lookin' for a ride.
So he pulled up in a Mustang, she got in and they just rode away.
Headed west into the sunset, mascara runnin' down her face.

Chorus

Standing in the rain in Durango.

When EVENING falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can't see

Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
And sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me, oh bless me, bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

David has had his 'down times' before. Yet he has come back and posted good songs for us. In that spirit I propose not allowing negativity mar this thread any further.

Let us sing while we have breath.

" I still hear YOU calling
When sleep is escaping me
I still hear you farther on

I see you in waking
A ghost in the window shade
My lover the form you take

By my side
Walk with me
Make this well
By my side

We dance through the evening
You feather around my toes
I still hear the words you pled"

I would like to say how much I appreciate the people who post here and enjoy music.

Thank you to: Cookie, Kacee, Texas Woman, David, doodah, and Omni.
They all posted in the last 6 months.

Note that is better than the original thread participation that doodah referred to in his post on that thread.

Oh my, but you've been a busy girl, trying to find old posts of mine. Yes, you probably noticed that I deleted 99% of my posts from this thread. I did that the day that you started your not so little unprovoked attack on a friend of mine. Yes, that is when things 'changed'. Didn't really feel the need to be associated with anything you were involved with. Did come back when I thought you were finished, as Amazon booted your old ID. (Now why in the world would they do that?)

Don't worry, wasn't planning on deleting that post. It says how much I appreciate David's contribution to the Rock Forum, and how much I appreciate... omnireader. Ahh, but, that's someone else, isn't it? I know she wouldn't come back in here under an alias after Amazon booted her.

The Grateful Dead song is great, the introductory words hypocritical and self serving, as this is about the only place omni has to go around here.

This for me was one of the BEST threads in this forum [Initial post: Jun 30, 2007 5:52:36 PM PDT]. In it's heyday, it was hard to sometimes keep up with posts, they came so fast & furious. Full of fun loving people who shared their love of music, and, more than tagging song titles, the words and emotions contained in those songs, as well as GREAT COVERS of those songs. It introduced myself and others to many artists, new and old, enriching our musical experience and vocabulary. It was nice then, when everyone just wanted to share and "get along". But then, a darkness descended....

Your decision what to do with the thread, David, it's yours. Your intentions were only the best, I have nothing but appreciation and admiration for your efforts. You brought back "Son of" due to great demand for more. You were always a very positive reminder of what the thread was about. I felt a glimmer of hope a while back, as did a few others, it seemed to be safe to "go back in the water", but the menace returned, and like a shark under the surface in the ocean, who knows when it will decide to attack without provocation, just because that is it's nature.

Well, omni, you always seemed to want to rule the thread, maybe you can start one of your own, maybe "Daughter of Song Lyric Tag", and set your own rules.]

Maybe you can remember your own post from the original Song Lyric Tag and discover what has happened to you. If there is a darkness it is not mine. If there is a decision to attack without provocation it is not mine. If there is a will to destroy it is not mine. If there is a menace it is not mine.

I thought about something like that when I logged on. I wondered "what happened to alll of those early posters"?
All gone, and it comes down to about, what, six or so of us out of 293 various people who have posted here? Nahhh, we've been carrying it. David, Valerie and I are the only ones here from the first 5 pages. When Omnireader, Bklyn-Born and Texas Woman joined in you gave us a great and well needed shot in the arm, cos it was dying, down to about 3 of us. Wish Mik Bik was around, he did some great posts.

So I still vote for David to finish it out. He started it, he's still here, and therefore deserving.]

Would it it possible or desirable to have the early contributors to this thread finish it?

I have gone back through all the posts and was amazed and impressed at the great early posts. Great camaraderie and great tunes.

I am very new and would really like to see the early posters names and selections again.

What do you think?]

David, your thread is a gift to those who love music. Please reconsider your words.
Let there be healing, and ignore the heels.
Here is my song to those who love music.

"If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music?
Would you hold it near, as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Chorus
Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to BLOW

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of man

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Chorus

You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall, you fall alone
If you should stand, then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way, I would take you home"

Instrumental to end

I cannot spend another night in this home
I close my eyes and take a breath real slow
The consequence is if I leave I'm alone
But what's the difference when you beg for love?

I run through glass in the street
Kerosene hearts carry the name that my father gave me
And take the face of the wolf

'Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there's hell over me

I met a girl who never looked so alone
Like sugar water in YOUR mouth lukewarm
She tied a cherry stem for me with her tongue
We fell in love and now we're both alone

I don't need any more friends
And another kiss like a fire on pavement
We'll burn it down to the end

Oh, oh

This is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there's hell over me

The water is rusted, the air is unclean.
And then for a second I feel fine
This is a wasteland, my only retreat

I've waited all this night to honor you and say,
"I know it's hard, but who are you to fall apart on me, on me?"

This is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there's hell over me

'Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there's hell over me

You said what about us, well what about me?
Hang from the gallows and sleep in the rain
'Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat
Paralyze me
Don't let me jump, don't let me fall

Indeed, this thread has turned from a fruitful garden into a desolate, bitter wasteland. Regretfully, as the thread's original founder, I officially declare Song Lyric Tag dead. Cheers!

For 2 special people who I hope have a better New Year than the last one, but that is up to you, isn't it.

Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity.
Calculate what we will or will not tolerate.
Desperate to control all and everything.
Unable to forgive YOUR scarlet lettermen.

Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down.
Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end.
Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down.
Terrified of being wrong. Ultimatum prison cell.

Saturn ascends, choose one or ten. Hang on or be humbled again.

Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down.
Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end.
Saturn ascends, comes round again.
Saturn ascends, the one, the ten. Ignorant to the damage done.

Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity.
Calculate what we will or will not tolerate.
Desperate to control all and everything.
Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen.

Wear your grudge like a crown. Desperate to control.
Unable to forgive. And we're sinking deeper.

Defining, confining, controlling, and we're sinking deeper.

Saturn comes back around to show you everything
Let's you choose what you will not see and then
Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again
Spits you out like a child, light and innocent.

Saturn comes back around. Lifts you up like a child or
Drags you down like a stone
To consume you till you choose to let this go.

Give away the stone. Let the oceans take and
Transmutate this cold and fated anchor.
Give away the stone. Let the waters kiss and
Transmutate these leaden grudges into gold.
Let go.

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can't be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you're down and out,
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.

I'll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pain is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on SILVER girl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.

See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

(Never [3x])

You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down (never)
You, you enchant me even when you're not around (never)
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down (never)
I'm latching on, babe, now I know what I have found (never)

I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)

I'm so encaptured, got ME wrapped up in your touch (never)
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch (never)
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath (never)
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest (never)

I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?
I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)
Latching on to you
I won't let go of you (never)
Latching on to you
I won't let go of you
(Never let go, never let go)

Give me the simple life. Annotated version:

"I don't believe in frettin' and grievin'
Why mess around with strife'
I never was cut out to step and strut out
Give ME the simple life

Some like the high road, I like the low road
Free from the care and strife
Sounds corny and seedy, but yes, indeed
Give me the simple life

Sounds corny and seedy, but yes, indeed

We, we must go on now, wherever people go who go on together
And now, try to hold on now, too many of us have run, run out of the circle

CAN you hear me, are you breathing
I need you near me, no I'm not leaving
I'm in no hurry to do this alone

I am standing here with my arms open wide
I am waiting here, heart in my hand on the border

Dreams, dreams may seduce you
But sooner or later they're gone and you're back where you started
Oh look, look at these scars now
How many wounds does it take before we are healing

Can we go on now, from what we have done now
Yes we must go on, our questions unanswered
I know what we're after is right here in our hands

Chorus:
I am standing here with my arms open wide
I keep waiting here, heart in my hand on the border
And every step we take gives us the strength to go on
And all the love we make gets us closer to home

I can see it all so clearly now, I can hear your voice in a song
And it burns down inside my soul, it takes me down this winding road
We can find our way back home

We, we must go on now, wherever people go who go on together

(chorus)

Oh, standing here with my arms open wide
And I keep waiting here, on the borderline
And every step we take gives us the strength to go on
And all the love we make gets us closer to home
