How's this:

Just a song I was listening to.

All I ever wanted to do was fly

Leave this world and live in the sky

I let the c130 out of fort worth town

I go up some days I dont wanna come down

Well I fly that plane Call the angel flight

Come on brother your with me tonight

Between heaven and earth Your never alone

On the angel flight

Come on brother I'm taking you home

I love my family and I love this land

But tonight this flight for another man

We do what we do cuz we heard the call

Some gave alittle...some gave it all

I fly that plane Call the angel flight

Come on brother your with me tonight

Between heaven and earth Your never alone

On the angel flight

Come on brother I'm taking you home

Well the country's quiet and the stars are bright

It feels like love in here tonight

It don't matter where we touch down

On the angel flight it's sacred ground

I fly that plane! Call the angel flight

Got a hero ridin with us tonight

Between heaven and earth Your never alone

On the angel flight

Come on brother I'm taking you home.

(I just cut and pasted and put in line breaks. I should, of course, be doing other things, which I am trying hard to avoid doing. This was just the excuse I needed, thanks! :( )

The best country song I think ever written.

Well I woke up, Sunday mornin', with no way, to hold my head, that didn't hurt...

And the beer I had, for breakfast, wasnt bad, so I had one more, for dessert...

I fumbled in my closet, through my clothes, and found my, cleanest, dirty shirt

Then I washed my face, and combed my hair, and stumbled down, the stairs, to meet the day...

I'd smoked my mind, the night before with, cigarettes and songs, that I'd been, pickin'

But I lit my first, and watched a small kid, playin', with a can, that he'd been, kickin'

Then I walked across the street, and caught the Sunday smell, of someone, fryin', chicken

And it took me back, to somethin', that I lost, somewhere, somehow, along the way...

On the Sunday mornin', sidewalks...

I'm wishin', lord, that I was, stoned...

Cause theres somethin' in ah Sunday, that makes, a body, feel alone...

And theres nothin', short, of dyin'

Half as lonesome, as the sound

Of the sleepin', city sidewalks

And, Sunday Mornin, Coming Down...

In the park I saw, a daddy, with a laughing, little girl, that he was swingin'

And I stopped beside, a Sunday school, and listened, to the songs, that they were singin'

Then I headed down the street, and somewhere far away, a lonely bell, was ringin'

And it echoed through, the canyons, like a disappearing, dream, of yesterday

On the Sunday mornin' sidewalks

Im wishin' lord, that I was stoned...

Cause theres somethin' in ah Sunday, that makes, a body, feel alone...

Theres nothin' short, of dyin'

Half as lonesome, as the sound

Of, the sleepin', city sidewalks...

Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down

See him wasted, on, the sidewalk, in his jacket, and his jeans

Wearin' yesterdays misfortune like a smile...

Once he had a future, full of, money, love, and dreams

Whice he spent, like they was, goin, outta style...

And he keeps right on, achangin', for the better, or the worse

Searchin', for a shrine, hes never found...

Never knowin' if believin', is a blessing, or a curse

Or if the goin' up, was worth the comin' down...

Hes a poet...

Hes a picker...

Hes a prophet...

Hes a pusher...

Hes a pilgrim, and a preacher, and a problem, when hes stoned...

Hes a walking contridiction, partly truth, and partly fiction...

Taking ev'ry wrong direction, on his lonely, way, back home...

He has tasted, good and evil, in your bedrooms, and your bars

And hes, traded in, tommorrow, for today...

Runnin', from his devils, lord, and reaching for the stars

And losin', all hes loved, along the way...

But if this world keeps right, on turnin', for the better, or the worse

And all he ever gets, is older, and around...

From the rockin' of, the cradle, to the rollin', of the hearse

Goin' up, was worth, the comin' down...

Hes a poet...Hes a liar

Hes a prophet...Hes a dreamer

Hes a pilgrim, and a preacher, and a problem, when hes stoned...

Hes a walking, contridiction, partly truth, and partly fiction

Taking ev'ry, wrong direction, on his, lonely way, back home

I am a drifter on a hungry empty sea

There is no one on earth, to rescue me

The rains and storms they freeze me

Summer burned alive

I cant remember, when another soul passed by...

Marooned and stranded, on the Islands of the Damned

There is no one on earth, to take my hand

There is no voice to speak, no soul for company...

The sun goes down like blood, into the western sea

Alone and dying, and a thousand miles I'm gone...

I know I am lost, so broken and alone

I searched the sky for God, shivering to the BONE!

Drowned in sorrow.......Lost in the Ozone

Abandon Me! Abandon Me!

Wash over me, watch over me...........drowned forever

Alone and crying, and a thousand miles astray

Alone upon the cruel sea, forsworn and cast away

I turned my face to God, but his face was turned away

Lost in the Ozone, nothing left to say

Lost in the Ozone, nothing left to say

Abandon Me

Down a dangerous road, I have come to where Im standin'

With a heavy heart, and my hat clutched in, my hands

Such a foolish man, God aint known no greater sinner

I have come in search of Jesus hopin' he will understand...

If I give my soul, will he clean these clothes, Im wearin'?

If I give my soul, will he put new boots on my feet?

If I bow my head, and beg God, for his forgiveness

Will he breathe new life within' me, and bring her back to me

I had a woman once, she was kind, and she was gentle

Had a child by me, who grew up to be a man

I had a steady job...Till! I started in, to drinkin'

Then I started makin' music, travelin' with, the devils band

Oh the years went by, like a mighty rush, of egos

Our dreams and plans, were all scattered in the wind

And its a lonesome life, when you lose the ones you live for

If I make my peace with Jesus, will they take me back again...

If I give my soul, will he stop my hands, from shakin'?

If I give my soul, will my son, love me again?

If I give my soul, and they know I really mean it

Will they take me back again

As I walk these narrow streets

Where amillion passing feet, have gone before me

With my guitar in my hand, suddenly I realize.....

Nobody knows me

Where yesterday the multitudes screamed and cried my name out, for a'song

Today the streets are empty, and the crowds............have all gone home

I pass amillion houses, but there is no place, where I belong

All I knew to give you, was song after song............after song

All the truths I tried to tell you, were as distant to you, as the moon

Born 200 years too late......................and 200 years, too soon

I'm achild of this age, locked inside the pages, of your book

And when I am but dust and clay, and other children stop........to take alook

Will they marvel at the miracles I did perform, and to the heights I did aspire

Or will they tear out the pages of the book................to, light afire

With the rain on my face, there is no place, Where I belong

I'm gonna Live Forever

I'm gonna cross that river

I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

Your gonna want to hold me

Just like I always told you

Your gonna miss me when I'm gone

Nobody here will ever find me

But I will always be around

Just like the songs I leave behind me

I'm gonna Live Forever now

You fathers and you mothers

Be good to one another

Please try to raise your children right

Don't let the darkness take'em

Don't make'em feel forsaken

Just lead'em safely to the light

When this old world is blown to sunder

And all the stars fall from the sky

Remember someone really loves you

We'll Live Forever, You And I

I have......been ungrateful........I've been unwise

Restless.......from the cradle.......now I realize

It's so hard to see the rainbow

Through glasses dark as these

Maybe.......I'll be able......from now on.....on my knees

OooooooooOoooooooOooooooo I am weak

Ooooooh I know I am vain

Take this weight from me, Let my spirit be

Unchained

Old man, swearin at the sidewalk, and I'm overcome

Seems that, we both forgotton, forgotten to go home

Have IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII seen, an angel

Or have I, seen a ghoooooooooooooooost

Where's that........rock of ages.........when I need it most

OooooooooOoooooooOooooooo I am weak

Ooooooh I know I am vain

Take this weight from me, Let my spirit be

Unchained

a couple by Hank Williams

Alone and Forsaken

We met in the springtime when blossoms unfold

The pastures were green and the meadows were gold

Our love was in flower as summer grew on

Her love like the leaves now has withered and gone.

The roses have faded, there's frost at my door

The birds in the morning don't sing anymore

The grass in the valley is starting to die

And out in the darkness the whippoorwills cry.

Refrain

Alone and forsaken by fate and by man

Oh, Lord, if You hear me please hold to my hand

Oh, please understand.

Oh, where has she gone to, oh, where can she be

She may have forsaken some other like me

She promised to honor, to love and obey

Each vow was a plaything that she threw away.

The darkness is falling, the sky has turned gray

A hound in the distance is starting to bay

I wonder, I wonder - what she's thinking of

Forsaken, forgotten - without any love.

Refrain

Men With Broken Hearts

You'll meet many just like me upon life's busy street

With shoulders stooped and heads bowed low and eyes that stare in defeat

Or souls that live within the past where sorrow plays all parts

Where a living death is all that's left for men with broken hearts

You have no right to be the judge to criticize and condemn

Just think but for the grace of God it would be you instead of him

One careless step a thoughtless deed and then the misery starts

And to those who weep death comes cheap

these men with broken hearts

Oh so humble you should be when they come passing by

For it's written that the greatest men never get too big to cry

Some lose faith in love and life when sorrow shoots her darts

And with hope all gone they walk alone

these men with broken hearts

You've never walked in that man's shoes or saw things through his eyes

Or stood and watched with helpless hands while the heart inside you dies

Some were paupers some were kings and some were masters of the arts

But in their shame they're all the same

these men with broken hearts

Life sometimes can be so cruel that a heart will pray for death

God why must these living dead know pain with every breath

So help your brother along the road no matter where he starts

For the God that made you made them too

these men with broken hearts

The first time I held your hand

I knew I, was a lucky man

Felt like God forgave me, of all my wrongs

I keep tellin myself.........................that Im Heaven Bound

Sometimes it sure gets cold

And the fall on, music row

But it's worth it, if it gets me by somehow

I keep tellin myyyself......................that Im Heaven Bound

Cos' it seems like we don't ever

Have near enough time, together, anymore

All these lonely nights without you

Will go away when I can hold you, in my arms

I keep tellin myself.....................that Im Heaven Bound

I keep tellin myself.....................that Im Heaven Bound

I keep tellin myself

here are 3 from Hank Williams III

5 Shots of Whiskey

Livin alone, singin my songs

Thinkin bout the good times when you were my own

Lady you taught me how to hurt and cry,

and each day I'm not with you, I die more inside

Honey, sweet lady why did you go?

and leave me here dying all alone in my world?

It's all gone wrong since you've been gone

So give me 5 shots of whiskey

to help kill the misery and pain

you put me through

Thanks for the good times,

for they were the best of my life

I spent with you

Now what can I do?

Walkin' on Broadway not havin a care

I see you and your new guy who's strokin' your hair

And I can't keep staying here in my hometown,

got to get on with my life somehow

It's all gone wrong since you've been gone

So give me 5 shots of whiskey

to help kill the misery and pain

you put me through

Thanks for the good times,

for they were the best of my life

I spent with you

and I still love you

Callin' Your Name

I've been up all night and I can't sleep

I've been thinkin' about you and I can't eat

I tried to go outside, but it strarted to rain

and I'm sittin' here in tears callin' your name

Callin' your name O Lord, I need you now

I didn't know how far I was driftin' out

It's been so hard livin' all alone

I need ya this time - Lord, please can ya give me a home?

It's been so hard these last few years without you

I've been wild and I didnt have a care

I've caused myself so much sorrow

so I'm callin' this time - can I be saved?

Callin' your name O Lord, I need you now

I didn't know how far I was driftin' out

It's been so hard livin' all alone

I need ya this time - Lord, please can ya give me a home?

I'm calling this time - Lord, please can ya give me a home?

Candidate for Suicide

Well I'm a candidate for suicide the more that I get old

I'm a candidate for suicide..the drugs have taken their toll

I'm a candidate for suicide..I was raped at 8 years old

Well I'm a candidate for suicide cause I'm a cheat, liar, and a whore.

Well I've been busted up and beaten down..no self esteem to make me proud

anti social, depressed, and cursed

Well I hope I feel better when I'm ridin in that hearse

and all my emotions have left me and I no longer hurt.

Well I'm a candidate for suicide cause I'm burned out and too far gone

Well I'm a candidate for suicide..no matter what I do it seems wrong

Well I'm a candidate for suicide cause I hurt the ones I love

Well I'm a candidate for suicide cause I never laugh that much

I've been busted up and beaten down..no self esteem to make me proud

anti social, depressed, and cursed

Well I hope I feel better when I'm ridin in that hearse

and all my emotions have left me and I no longer hurt

well all my emotions have left me and I no longer hurt

Would you lay, with me, in a field, of stone

If my needs, were strong, would you, lay, with me

Should my lips, grow, dry, would you wet, them, dear

In the midnight, hour, if my, lips, were, dry

Would you go, away, to another, land

Walk athousand, miles, through the burning, sand

Wipe the blood, away, from my, dieing, hand

If I give, myself, to you

Will you bathe, with me, in the stream, of life

When the moon, is full, will you bathe, with me

Will you still, love me, when Im, down, and, out

In my time, of trial, will you stand, by, me

Would you, go, away, to another, land

Walk athousand miles, through, the burning, sand

Wipe the, blood, away, from my dieing, hand

If I, give, myself, to, you

Would you lay, with me, in a field, of stone

If my lips, grow, dry, would you, wet, them, dear

Would you bathe, with me, in the stream, of life

Will you still, love, me, when Im down, and, out

Would you lay with me, in a field of stone

When the moon, is full, will you lay with me

So, I haven't posted on here for a long... long time now but, saw this thread and HAD to chime in.

I have a fortune from a fortune cookie somewhere that reads:

"Music is the divine way to say beautiful poetic things to the heart."

I just thought that was soooo... perfect. Music really is the universal language. Words mean different things to different people but music crosses all language boundaries. It's truly the language of the heart.

And beyond speaking to the heart of another in a way that words could never hope to, it also has been my experience that music helps my own heart say things that, I just can't seem to find the words for. People who know me, know that I'm never at a shortage for words! Lol! But sometimes, words just aren't sufficient to express the depth of emotion that the heart is capable of. When that happens, out comes the guitar or the piano and THEN, the full scope of the heart's expression can be felt.

I used to have this link up here but, think I deleted it. Just if anyone's interested, here's my page with links to things I've written. Some are complete songs - most are just ideas as they came to me. But maybe, something will touch someone's heart. http://www.youtube.com/user/Jetliner757?feature=mhum

And if I may, the lyrics to a song that I find so moving... It's by Point of Grace and called, "Heal the Wound."

I used to wish that I could rewrite history

I used to dream that each mistake could be erased

Then I could just pretend

I never knew the me back then

I used to pray that You would take this shame away

Hide all the evidence of who I've been

But it's the memory of

The place You brought me from

That keeps me on my knees

And even though I'm free

Heal the wound but leave the scar

A reminder of how merciful You are

I am broken, torn apart

Take the pieces of this heart

And heal the wound but leave the scar

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything

I don't take pride in what I bring

But I'll build an altar with

The rubble that You've found me in

And every stone will sing

Of what You can redeem

Heal the wound but leave the scar

A reminder of how merciful You are

I am broken, torn apart

Take the pieces of this heart

And heal the wound but leave the scar

Don't let me forget

Everything You've done for me

Don't let me forget

The beauty in the suffering

Heal the wound but leave the scar

A reminder of how merciful You are

I am broken, torn apart

Take the pieces of this heart

And heal the wound but leave the scar

Had a dream last night, that I was dead

Had a dream last night, that I was dead

Evil, spirits, all around my bed...

The devil came, and grabbed my hand

The devil came, and grabbed, my hand

Lead me down, through that red hot land...

Mean blue spirits, somethin' false in me

Mean, blue spirits, somethin' callin' me

Made me mo'oan and groan, in misery...

Fairies and dragons, spitting out blue flames

Fairies, and dragons, spitting out, blue flames

Shown their teeth, cuz they were glad I came...

Demons with their eyelids, drippin' blood

Demons, with their eyelids, drippin' blood

Drug the sinner, through that brimestone, flood...

This is HELLLLL! I cried, with all my might...

This is HELLLLLLLLL! I cried, with all my, might...

Said Oooooooo my soul, I cant bear, the sight...

Start runnin', cuz this is my blood

Start runnin', cuz this is, my blood

Run so fast.......till someone woke, me up:eek:

There's a man across the hall, who sits starin, at the floor

He thinks he's Hank Williams, hear him singin, through the door

There's a girl in 203, who stops by, to visit me

And she talks about, her songs, and the star, that she should be

There are lots of, special people, stayin in or, passin through...

And for one thing, or another...

Committed to Parkview...

There's a girl in 307, coming down, on thorazine

And a superstar's ex-drummer, tryin to kick benzedrine

There's a boy just down below me, whose the son, of some well known

He was brought in by his mother, cause his daddy's always gone

There's a bum from down on broadway, and afew, quiet, well to-dos...

Who have withdrawn, from the ratrace

And Committed, to Parkview...

There's a girl, who cries above me, loud enough, to wake the dead

They don't know, what she has takin, that has scrambled up her head

There's a writer, and a singer, who has tried and tried and tried

They just brought him in, this mornin, an attempted, suicide

There are those, who never made it, those who did but now are through

Some came of there own, good choosen

Some Committed, to Parkview...

They wake us, about 6:30, just before, the morning meal

While their taking, blood pressure, they ask us, how we feel

And I always say, FANTASTIC! there aint nothin, wrong with me

And then they, give me my injection, and I go right back, to sleep

And my days, are kind of foggy, and my nights are, dreamy too...

But..there..takin..good..care..of..me

Committed..to..Parkview

Where the road is dark, and the seed is sow

Where the gun is cocked, as the bullets cold

Where the miles are marked, in the blood and the gold

I'll meet you, further on, up the road

Got on my deadman's suit, and my smilin' skull ring

My lucky graveyard boots, and a'song to sing

I gotta a'song to sing, it keeps me out of the cold

And I'll meet you, further on, up the road

Further on up the road...........Further on up the road

Where the way is dark, and the night is cold

One sunny mornin'.........we'll rise I know

And I'll meet you further on, up the road

Now I been out in the desert, just doin my time

Searchin through the dust, lookin for ah sign

If there's a'light up ahead, well people I dont know

But I got this fever burnin, in my soul

Further on up the road, Further on up the road

Further on up the road, Further on up the road

One sunny mornin'.........we'll rise I know

And I'll meet you further on, up the road

Hi Cantgiveitaway,

These poems are powerful and filled with deep meaning and feelings. What do you understand about them? Can you explain?

Please help us understand. Also, can you tell us more about yourself?

Allan
