How Long must we Wait

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

How Long must we Wait Written 1989 Oslo for L+o+v+e = You and Me album (unreleased)

 

How much longer must we wait

Until we know it is time

Until the battle is won

Untill we know all is done

 

Bullets they fly in the night

and I feel like I am almost done

 

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

Won’t you please tell me

How long we must wait

 

For time I can not put my finger on

I can not change what is going on

I can not bring back the dead

Just like some one I know

 

I keep looking over my shoulder

Because the enemy always strikes from behind/but only love can defend me

 

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

Won’t you please tell me

How long we must wait

I can not Stop the Fighting

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

I can not Stop the Fighting Edited by Cousin Lee written in 1994

Why is it so hard to understand
  • I can’t stop the fighting
  • but it ain’t on the streets
  • I can’t stop the battling
  • Between where it all meets
Who speaks the future, with the words they write
Who knows where that train is heading
Maybe it is what one reads
Maybe it is the newspapers
First your up and then your down
A glass world will smash
Just as your thoughts crash
  • The eye of truth is burning
  • Some where in the mind
  • One thinks they can touch it
  • These large profit making machines
What is it one is lacking
I see the cracks
People standing in the way
What one feels will never sell
A closer look inside
something you feel
It is all so painful
but there is way to heal
  • To stop the fighting
  • not on the streets
  • to stop the battling
  • With out blame
if we knew we would do better
it not our nature to fall
if we knew we would do better
nobody acts stupid

The Whole Story

Monday, January 25th, 2016

This from a bootleg (unreleased) but stands well by itself. ‘The whole Story’ as a law professor said to me if you can not see the down side. then you can not see it all.

The Whole Story

The whole story that was that

The moon is round and so be it

 

Life comes In many seizes

Be small or big

life is for the living

the circle of it all

 

The whole story that was that

The moon is round and so be it

 

I look between your eyes

what is right there

do we meet on the sea

Waters of emotion

I am always swimming

 

The whole story that was that

The moon is round were not done

 

tattoo you with marks of us

After all this are we busted

I thought maybe we could

We are burnt no wonder at all

 

The whole story that was that

The moon is round we can love

Still Time

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

In 2046 is there still time will we be saying

 

Still Time

 

Still Time, as long as a I breath

that is not the same

there are things

I can do now

those things

I can not do tomorrow

 

still time

one thinks

lets not kid

ourselves

 

Time ever present

but moving away

people will give you money for it

the dream does (not) fade

and all the time it is running outside

like the cold tap

 

still time for love

not really

either now or never

if it really matters, to live it

 

my energy,

makes me alive

when I step down

this path

Scares me

that I am alone

 

but I know

there is no time

for mother earth

but it is not the one

every one thinks

the red herring is easy

Its the one hidden away

 

Do what has to be done

say what has to be said

Still Time
