One Truth


A gardener’s daughter stopped me on my way, on the day I was to wed It is you who I wish to share my body with she said We’ll find a dry place under the sky with a flower for a bed And for my joy I will give you a boy with a moon and star on his head. Her silver hair flowed in the air laying waves across the sun Her hands were like the white sands, and her eyes had diamonds on. We left the road and headed up to the top of the Whisper Wood And we walked ’till we came to where the holy magnolia stood. And there we laid cool in the shade singing songs and making love… With the naked earth beneath us and the universe above. The time was late my wedding wouldn’t wait I was sad but I had to go, So while she was asleep I kissed her cheek for cheerio. The wedding took place and people came from many miles around There was plenty merriment, cider and wine abound But out of all that I recall I remembered the girl I met ‘Cause she had given me something that my hear could not forget. A year had passed and everything was just as it was a year before… As if was a year before… Until the gift that someone left, a basket by my door. And in there lay the fairest little baby crying to be fed, I got down on my knees and kissed the moon and star on his head. As years went by the boy grew high and the village looked on in awe They’d never seen anything like the boy with the moon and star before. And people would ride from far and wide just to seek the word he spread I’ll tell you everything I’ve learned, and Love is all…he said.

Heaven by Brandi Carlile



This song is a cover of “Heaven” by Bryan Adams.

Oh – thinkin’ about all our younger years
There was only you and me
We were young and wild and free

Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We’ve been down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more
Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn’t too hard to see
We’re in heaven

Oh – once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you’re feelin’ down

Ya – nothin’ could change what you mean to me
Oh there’s lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We’ve been down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more
Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven

I’ve been waitin’ for so long
For somethin’ to arrive
For love to come along

Now our dreams are comin’ true
Through the good times and the bad
Ya – I’ll be standin’ there by you

Brandi Carlile, Forever Young



Brandi Carlile album Live At Benaroya Hall With The Seattle Symphony 2011

Lyrics

Let us dance in style, let us dance for a while
Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are they gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us stay young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad man

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders and getting in tune
The musics for a sad man

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, or never

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever young

Some of us are like water and some are like heat
Some are the melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later we’ll be gone. 
Why don’t we stay young?

But it’s hard getting older without a cause
I don’t want to perish like a fading horse
Youth like diamonds in the sun 
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures could happen today
So many songs we^ve forgotten to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue 
If we let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, or never

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, or never

Forever young, I wanna be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?

Sara Bareilles – Love Song


Songwriters: CALIBE THOMPSON / LARS JACOBSON / ACHIM OPPERMANN

 

Head underwater
And they tell me
To breathe easy for a while
Breathing gets harder, even I know that 
Made room for me; 
It’s too soon to see
If I’m happy in your hands
I’m unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, 
You see

I’m not gonna write you
A love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
If you’re on your way

I’m not gonna write you to
Stay
If all you have is leavin’
I’ma need a better reason
To write you
A love song
Today
Today, Yeah

I learned the hard way
That they all say
Things you want to hear

My heavy heart sinks deep down under
You and your twisted words, 
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convince me to please you
Make me think that I need this too
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, 
You see

I’m not gonna write you
A love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
If you’re on your way

I’m not gonna write you to
Stay
If all you have is leavin’, 
I’ma need a better reason
To write you
A love song
Today

Promise me that you’ll leave the light on
To help me see
With daylight, my guide, gone
‘Cause I believe there’s a way you can love me
Because I say
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, 
You see

I’m not gonna write you
A love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
Is that why you wanted a love song?
‘Cause you asked for it?
‘Cause you need one?
You see

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or break in this
Or you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you
To stay

If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There’s a reason to write you
A love song
Today

 

Ingrid Michaelson – Everybody



This is her new song Everybody from the new album Everybody. 25th of august 2009

Featured on “Grey’s AnatomyI Like You So Much Better When You’re Naked 
It’s my favorite album of Ingrid Michaelson.

Lyrics:

We have fallen down again tonight
In this world it’s hard to get it right
Trying to make your heart fit like a glove
What it needs is love, love, love

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants be to loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants be to loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Happy is the heart that still feels pain
Darkness drains and light will come again
Swing open your chest and let it in
Just let the love, love, love begin

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants be to loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants be to loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Everybody knows the love
Everybody holds the love
Everybody folds for love
Everybody feels the love
Everybody steals the love
Everybody heals with love

Oh oh oh
Just let the love love love begin

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants be to loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants be to loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Afghans protest against Special Forces occupation


From Alexander The Great to US Army: War, Warlords, and HASHHHHHHH!

Afghan villagers show a picture of nine men during a protest last month against U.S. Special Forces accused of overseeing torture and killings in Wardak Province

Local Afghans Protest U.S. Special Forces

March 16, 2013

Several hundred residents of Afghanistan’s volatile Wardak Province are marching on the Afghan parliament building in Kabul to protest the presence of U.S. Special Forces in their area.

Police said between 200 and 500 demonstrators have gathered in the Afghan capital, chanting anti-American slogans and demanding the release of nine local citizens they say were detained by U.S. forces.

“We have gathered here to protest against the [U.S.] Special Forces in Maidan, Wardak, because they enter people’s houses and torture innocent people, they have also detained 10 people and it is not clear what will happen to them,” one protester told Reuters.

U.S. officials say only four the nine missing men were arrested in joint U.S.-Afghan raids.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai last month asked all U.S. Special Forces to leave Wardak, accusing them…

Hello Saferide – Anna (with lyrics)



You know we could have had a daughter
And we could have named her Anna
And she would have been a sweetheart
But with punk rock manners

Could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

You could have taught her to play hockey
I could have taught her the guitar
And her granddad could have shown her the way to the bar

Could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

We would have made the neighbours jealous
We could have barbecues at nights
With our collected brain recources, she would have an IQ of a hundred and fifty five

Could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

She would have won the Nobel Prize
And thank her mama for all the good advice
And we could have gone swimming near that cottage by the lake
And she’d never have to know what it’s like when your heart breaks

When your heart breaks
When your heart breaks

When your heart breaks
When your heart breaks

Could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside
Could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

She would have married a Kennedy
She would have found the cure for HIV
Well I’m real sorry Anna, you never got to be
Because your daddy moved on and left me

Could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

Hello Saferide – The Quiz



You look nice alright
And I like the way you nod after everything I say
Like it actually means something to you

And I like your record collection
Townes and Jens with a hint of Rickie Lee
And you’ve cleaned up the bathroom, made a really nice soup
But a bit too much sci-fi in your shelf with DVD’s

But there are things you need to know about me
I’m weak right now, so weak right now
I need proof before I dare to open this heart
So I’ve prepared a quiz for you

Would you freak out if I said I liked you?
Do you walk the line?
Is your IQ higher than your neighbours?
And is it very much higher than mine?

Can you sleep when I grind my teeth?
Do you look away if I slob when I eat?
Will you let me be myself?
Can you at all times wear socks? Because I’m still scared of feet

And if I’d fall, would you pick me up?
If I’d fall, would you pick me up?

Do you talk in the middle of Seinfeld?
Do you read more than two books a month?
Do you get racist or sexist when you’ve had a few?
Is it fine if I make more money than you?

Have you slept with any people I work with?
Is there anyone you’d rather wish I’d be?
Do you still keep pictures of old girlfriends?
Are they prettier than me?

And if I’d fall, would you pick me up?
If I’d fall, would you pick me up?

Today’s Birthday: ROSA BONHEUR (1822) a painter


Rosa Bonheur (1822)

One of the most famous female painters of the 19th century, Bonheur was trained by her father—an art teacher—and began regularly exhibiting her work at the Paris Salon in 1841. Her unsentimental paintings of animals became very popular, particularly in England and the US, and her most famous painting, The Horse Fair, gained her an international reputation. Who gave her formal permission to dress as a man so that she could study horses at the actual Horse Fair in Paris?More… Discuss

LIVER PRESERVATION DEVICE COULD INCREASE ORGAN’S AVAILABILITY


Liver Preservation Device Could Increase Organ’s Availability

There are simply not enough donor organs to meet current needs, and thousands of people die every year waiting for a transplant. Unfortunately, many badly needed organs are deemed nonviable and discarded, often because of damage sustained between removal and transplantation. Thousands of livers are discarded each year, but a new device that perfuses this organ outside the body, keeping it warm and functioning rather than on ice, could allow doctors to keep donated livers viable longer, better assess a liver’s function prior totransplantation, and possibly even allow a damaged liver to recover somewhat. More…Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: SAMOSET WALKS INTO PLYMOUTH COLONY, GREETS PILGRIMS IN ENGLISH (1621)


Samoset Walks into Plymouth Colony, Greets Pilgrims in English (1621)

Half of the English pilgrims from the Mayflower perished during their first winter in the New World, and as the survivors struggled to build their settlement at Plymouth, they had several tense encounters with Native Americans. That spring, a Native American named Samoset unexpectedly walked into their settlement and greeted them in English. Within days, he had introduced them to their neighbors. As it happened, Samoset was merely visiting the area. Where had he learned English? More… Discuss
