“Dance Me To The End Of Love”

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in 
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone 
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon 
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on 
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long 
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born 
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn 
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in 
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love

Watch “Rie Sinclair Island of Loneliness” on YouTube


Where do I go, when it’s all blown over,
Where do I start when it’s all gone to the dogs,
I am not bitter, I’m just trying to recover,
from my island of loneliness.
Where do I hide, from the careless words you speak,
I’m not immune, I just want to see beyond,
beyond my island of loneliness.
So what should I say, I hear the cannons fire in the distance,
is there a place for the tide to change my heart,
stop wasting time, collecting lines of girls, wake up out of it
in my arms, out of your island of loneliness.

FRANK SINATRA LYRICS


Download “It Was A Very Good …” Ringtone

“It Was A Very Good Year”

[spoken intro:]
Here’s an awfully pretty folk song

When I was seventeen it was a very good year
It was a very good year for small town girls and soft summer nights
We’d hide from the lights on the village green
When I was seventeen

[brief instrumental]

When I was twenty-one it was a very good year
It was a very good year for city girls who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair and it came undone
When I was twenty-one

[brief instrumental]

Then I was thirty-five it was a very good year
It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls
Of independent means, we’d ride in limousines their chauffeurs would drive
When I was thirty-five

[brief instrumental]

But now the days grow short, I’m in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage wine from fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs, and it poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year

[brief instrumental]

It was a mess of good years

FRANK SINATRA
“September Song”

(K. Weill, M. Anderson)

Download “September Song” Ringtone

[Recorded April 13, 1965, Hollywood]

[Lengthy Intro:]
When I was a young man courting the girls
I played me a waiting game
If a maid refused me with tossing curls
I’d let the old Earth make a couple of whirls
While I plied her with tears in lieu of pearls
And as time came around she came my way
As time came around, she came

When you meet with the young girls early in the Spring
You court them in song and rhyme
They answer with words and a clover ring
But if you could examine the goods they bring
They have little to offer but the songs they sing
And the plentiful waste of time of day
A plentiful waste of time

Oh, it’s a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time for the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you

“These Boots Are Made For Walking”
(originally by Nancy Sinatra)

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You’ve been a’messin’ where you shouldn’t ‘ve been a’messin’
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep lyin’ when you oughta be truthin’
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin’ when you oughta be a’changin’
What’s right is right but you ain’t been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep playing where you shouldn’t be playing
And you keep thinking that you’ll never get burnt (HAH)
Well, I’ve just found me a brand new box of matches (YEAH)
And what he knows you ain’t had time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

Article of the Day:Philosophical Zombies


Article of the Day:
Philosophical Zombies

Widely used in thought experiments—imagined scenarios whose outcomes are reasoned but not physically played out—philosophical zombies are hypothetical beings indistinguishable from normal humans in all but one respect—they lack conscious experience. This quality makes the “p-zombie” an ideal subject for philosophical musings. According to physicalism, everything that exists is ultimately physical. How have philosophers used these hypothetical beings in arguments disputing this perspective?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
