‘like a sea around a shore…’

As I was going through some cds to find music that would soothe and calm as I attempted to go through some files and integrate my new office at work.. I grabbed a Cat Stevens CD and stuck it in my computer…
Thought I’d share these songs that particularly grabbed my attention today…

I’ve always loved Cat Stevens lyricism and imagery… listening to his music and lyrics is like having a conversation with his soul…. It’s almost subliminal, subconscious…

Ladies, imagine a man so inspired by you that he would write these lyrics.. sigh… being the elusive unattainable…



ANGELSEA




Angelsea
By Cat Stevens



She moves like an angel
And seven evening stars
Dance through the window
Of her universal house
Her voice a crystal echo
Lies humming in your soul
So patiently awaiting
For your ears to behold
She ripples on the water
Leaves diamonds on the shore
And fish from every distance
Watch her ocean cellar door
Her breath a warm fire
In every lovers heart
A mistress to magicians
And a dancer to the gods
And a dancer to the gods
Her clothes are made of rainbows
And twenty thousand tears
Shine through the spaces
Of her golden ochre hair
Ooh my babe I want you
and on my life I swear
My conscience will I follow you forever
If you meet me everywhere
Yes if you if you meet me everywhere


This next song... when a man searches for what to say.. this may very well be it...


HOW CAN I TELL YOU




How Can I Tell You
By Cat Stevens


How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
but I can't think of right words to say
I long to tell you that I'm always thinking of you
I'm always thinking of you, but my words
just blow away, just blow away
It always ends up to one thing, honey
and I can't think of right words to say
Wherever I am girl, I'm always walking with you
I'm always walking with you, but I look and you're not there
Whoever I'm with, I'm always, always talking to you
I'm always talking to you, and I'm sad that
you can't hear, sad that you can't hear
It always ends up to one thing, honey,
when I look and you're not there
I need to know you, need to feel my arms around you
feel my arms around you, like a sea around a shore
and -- each night and day I pray, in hope
that I might find you, in hope that I might
find you, because heart's can do no more
It always ends up to one thing honey, still I kneel upon the floor
How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
but I can't think of right words to say
I long to tell you that I'm always thinking of you
I'm always thinking of you....
It always ends up to one thing honey
and I can't think of right words to say







I then loaded a playlist made up of songs I love, that are soft and sweet… This voice is one of my favorites.. Gordon Lightfoot, one of Canada’s finest sons…

This song has always made me smile.. I hope you enjoy it.. yes.. it’s sappy.. but there are days when sappy is the most precious of things… and it does NOT make me a softie…




BEAUTIFUL




Beautiful
By Gordon Lightfoot



At times I just don't know
How you could be anything but beautiful
I think that I was made for you
And you were made for me

And I know that I will never change
Cause we've been friends through rain or shine
For such a long, long time

Laughing eyes and smiling face
It's seems so lucky just to have the right
Of telling you with all my might
You're beautiful tonight

And I know that you will never stray
Cause ya been that way from day to day
For such a long, long time

And when ya hold me tight
How could life be anything but beautiful
I think that I was made for you
And you were made for me

And I know that I will never change
Cause we've been friends through rain or shine
For such a long, long time

And I must say that it means so much to me
Just to be the one who's telling you
I'm telling you
That you're beautiful






Ok.. enough daydreaming… but it was nice while it lasted.. isn’t it wonderful what music can do?…




I love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes!
