In Memory - Life is a song....Patrick Park


This is a repost in memory of the friend who suggested this song to me.

Walk on and be in peace, my friend. May your spirit ride the wings of eagles and rest within the warmth of your pack.

You say life is a dream where we can't say what we mean
Maybe just some roadside scene that we're driving past
There's no telling where we'll be in a day or in a week
And there's no promises of peace or of happiness


Well is this why you cling to every little thing
And polverize and derrange all your senses
Maybe life is a song but you're scared to song along
Until the very ending


Oh, it's time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we've been
It's time to cut ties that won't ever free our minds
From the chains and shackles that they're in


Oh, tell me what good is saying that you're free
In a dark and storming sea
You're chained to your history, you're surely sinking fast
You say that you know that the good Lord's in control
He's gonna bless and keep your tired and oh so restless soul
But at the end of the day when every price has been paid
You're gonna rise and sit beside him on some old seat of gold
And won't you tell me why you live like you're afraid to die
You'll die like you're afraid to go


Oh, it's time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we've been
It's time to cut ties that won't ever free our minds
From chains and shackles that they're in
From the chains and shackles that they're in


Well life is a dream 'cause we're all walking in our sleep
You could see us stand in lines like we're dead upon our feet
And we build our house of cards and then we wait for it to fall
Always forget how strange it is just to be alive at all

What a great idea! Nice song, too. I love the idea of each of us having our own healing anthem.... You've inspired me to post mine, which I clung to while I was healing!!

thanks for the feedbak michele; a friend sent me this song when I was in one of those places...it struck a chord, reminding me how the days were still passing by and I realized I had given enough to the past and it was time to live in today.

Women for women. Teaching men how to be men for the benefit of men and women. A wonderful thing.

So many people involved working on different aspects. It's - say it with me - AWESOME
