Song by Nina Nakamura: Water Under the Bridge

song: water under the bridge.

Reblog #1 out of 3 before I really, really stop posting for a while (don’t get your undies in a wad, people)…

I have never reblogged someone’s post before, so I’m not sure if I am doing this right…There is a link above these words. Click on it because you need to hear this song by fellow blogger Nina Nakamura, incredible musician and most excellent individual, I can just tell. Watch for her album coming out sometime worldwide, right, Nina? 🙂  Enjoy. It is a spiritual experience.

(My next post, 2/3, is her other song that she has posted…)

Thanks, Nina! You are my people! What genre would you say best describe your songs?

(I Wish I Could Be There to) Share the Moon, Indigo Girls

Even when I have insights about Her
Even when We are told about Us
There is still work to do
It is not so easy to heal
From a Love so True and Real

This is the song of my Heart for Her. I am putting it here, where all of my feelings for Her abide outside of my heart.

This song makes me ache, radiating from my heart. I spent all morning at church, thinking about how to make this work after all, that the children will be all right, and even better if I am happy and fulfilled in Love. Ah, this will be the longest week of my life. I am praying to come back from the beach, after sending Her love across the ocean, and begin packing for a new journey. The one with Her.

“Share The Moon”
Amy Ray, Indigo Girls

I can go one day without calling
Two days without bawling
Three days without missing
But a lifetime of no kissing you
Is something that I just can’t do.
I wish I could be there to share the moon

I got more back for the breaking
More callous for making
A lifetime for the aching
I got no need to run this battery down.
I’m just trying to get the stains out.
I wish I could be there to share the moon

Hey la la
I’m gonna love to you till it hurts
I don’t mind if I do
Hey la la
I’m gonna love you till it works
I’ve got no mind to lose

There’s one trash heap burning
Fireflies are returning
Nightfall is softly chirping
One trailer light is staying on till dawn
I wonder who it’s waiting on

I wish I could be there to share the moon

Hey la la
I’m gonna love to you till it hurts
I don’t mind if I do
Hey la la
I’m gonna love you till it works
I’ve got no mind to lose

Blood and Fire, Indigo Girls

To go with my last post…A bit overkill, but who doesn’t love this song? Enjoy!

Blood And Fire

I have spent nights with matches and knives,
Leaning over ledges, only two flights up.
Cutting my heart, burning my soul.
Nothing left to hold,
Nothing left but, blood and fire.

You have spent nights, thinking of me,
Missing my arms, but you needed to leave.
Leaving my cuts, leaving my burns,
Hoping I’d learn.

Blood and fire
Are too much for these restless arms to hold.
And my nights of desire are calling me,
Back to your fold.
And I am calling you, calling you from 10,000 miles away
Won’t you wet my fire with your love, babe?

I am looking for someone, who can take as much as I give,
Give back as much as I need,
And still have the will to live.
I am intense, I am in need,
I am in pain, I am in love.
I feel forsaken, like the things I gave away.

Blood and fire
Are too much for these restless arms to hold.
And my nights of desire are calling me,
Back to your fold.
And I am calling you, calling you from 10,000 miles away
Won’t you wet my fire with your love, babe?

I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love.
I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love.
I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love.

Blood and fire
Are too much for these restless arms to hold.
And my nights of desire are calling me,
Back to your fold.
And I am calling you, calling you from 10,000 miles away
Won’t you wet my fire with your love, babe?

I Believe in Love

The video She sent me after our previous good-bye. Words so true, of Her, of me, of Us.

Enjoy ~

When we tried to rework all of this
Each to her rendition
Painted ourselves in a corner
Lost for ideas blindly fishing
For a compliment or kindness
Just to bring us into view
But you could not interpret me and I could not interpret you

I remember that cold morning when the trees were black with birds
I tried to make out some connection
We were at a loss for words
After all that we’ve been through
I could not see giving up
Despite the picture of our coffee growing colder in the cups

I want to say that underneath it all you are my friend
And the way that I fell for you I’ll never fall that way again
I still believe despite our differences that what we have’s enough
And I believe in you and I believe in love

So we went rolling on down through the years
Taking time off we could steal
Until the thief of things unreconciled
Stuck it’s stick into the wheel
Now we’re tumbling in a freefall
No one’s gonna go unscathed
But it’s not because you held back and its not how I behaved

I want to say that underneath it all you are my friend
And the way that I fell for you I’ll never fall that way again
I still believe despite our differences that what we have’s enough
I believe in you and I believe in love

There are avenues and supplements and books stacked on the shelf
Labyrinths of recovery in search of our best self
But most of what will happen now is way out of our hands
So just let it go and see where it lands

I want to say that underneath it all you are my friend
And the way that I fell for you I’ll never fall that way again
I still believe despite our differences that what we have’s enough
I believe in you and I believe in love
I believe in you and I believe in love

She’s a Little Revolution

I’ll try to make this my last post for the day. I still haven’t heard from Her, but She is at work, after all (I wrote, hopefully, naively). This is another song that describes Her to me.

There are a few words I couldn’t make out. Let me know if you can tell what they are. I’d love to complete this song. Enjoy ~

Little Revolution
by Amy Ray

Got a girl so special
She makes the Fall turn Spring
I say “Everything is dying.”
She says “Everything is free.”

She’s got a real good equation
For the suffering I see
She says “The more you let it in,
Ah, the less it bleeds.”

She’s a little revolution
In my broken heart.
It’s like being born new
When it blows apart.

All the kids say “Ho-hum,”
They think I’m growing old
But I got a little secret
Makes me feel so bold

There’s a little Joe Strummer
In my DNA
And a little Lynnee Breedlove
To take me a long way

It’s a little revolution
in this heart of mine
And when everything blows up
It’s like a brand new rhyme

Bang, bang, bang
It’s You
Bang, bang, bang
You and I
Bang, bang, bang
…?
Bang, bang, bang
It’s the universe

Got a girl so special
She makes the Fall turn Spring
I say “Everything is changing.”
She says “Let it be.”

She’s a little revolution
In my broken heart
It’s like being born new
When it blows apart.

Bang, bang

Bang, bang

Bang, bang

Misguided Angel (Cowboy Junkies)

She is my Misguided Angel…or, perhaps I have been Hers. This is how I feel about Her when I am all swoopy, not caring about consequences, just wanting Her…And, no, I’m not getting any work done today.

MISGUIDED ANGEL

I said ‘mama, She’s crazy and She scares me
But I want Her by my side
Though She’s wild and She’s bad
And sometimes just plain mad
I need Her to keep me satisfied.’

I said ‘papa, don’t cry cause it’s alright
And I see you in some of Her ways
Though She might not give me the life that you wanted
I’ll love Her the rest of my days’

Misguided angel hangin’ over me
Heart like a gabriel, pure and white as ivory
Soul like a lucifer, black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love You ’til I’m dead

I said ‘brother, you speak to me of passion
You said never to settle for nothing less
Well, it’s in the way She walks,
It’s in the way She talks
Her smile, Her anger and Her kisses’

I said ‘sister, don’t you understand?
She’s all I ever wanted in a man
I’m tired of sittin’ around the t.v. every night
Hoping I’m finding a mr. right’

Misguided angel hangin’ over me
Heart like a gabriel, pure and white as ivory
Soul like a lucifer
Black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love You ’til I’m dead

She says ‘baby, don’t listen to what they say
There comes a time when you have to break away’
She says ‘baby there are things we all cling to all our life
It’s time to let them go and become my wife’

Misguided angel hangin’ over me
Heart like a gabriel, pure and white as ivory
Soul like a lucifer
Black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love You ’til I’m dead
