-Gil Scott Heron, Ain’t No Such Thing As Superman-

.

                  ~guyatree adds   
    :————————*+*———————:
You have understood
The riddles of the ages

Yes and you have understood
The universal nine

You have placed your footprints on
The everlasting sands of time

Yes so tell me why
Can’t you understand that there ain’t no such thing as a superman?
There ain’t no such thing as a superman

You was on the Nile
You went to see great Egypt fall
It fell down to the ground

Yes, and you was out there on the corner
When being cool went blind
Oh, you alone understand that if we gonna win
We’ve got to get together, stay together, be together, stick together

So tell me why, can’t you understand
That there ain’t no such thing as a superman
There ain’t no such thing as a superman

You alone consider mercy after it seems like all you get is pain
It seem to me that you have found the courage that others could not find
You alone have the wisdom to take this world and make it what it need to be, want to be, will be, someday you’ll see
The day, the day you understand
That there ain’t no such thing as a superman
There ain’t no such thing as a superman

Wicked Ride by Melody Gardot. Seriously if you listen and really understand the meaning behind this song. This song is really amazing, it makes you reflect back.

humabyrd notes a fall in Light…… (Jeff Buckley: New Years Prayer)

————————————*+*————————-

"fall in light, fall in light.
fall in light, fall in light. 
feel no shame for what you are

  as you now are in your heart 
  fall in light 
  feel no shame for what you are 
  feel no shame for what you are 
  feel it as a waterfall 
fall in light, ooh.
fall in light, fall in light,
fall in light, ooh. 
fall in light, fall in light fall in light,
grow in light.

      stand absolved behind your electric chair, dancing.
      stand absolved behind your electric chair, dancing. 
      past the sound within the sound. 
      past the voice within the voice. 
ah. ah. ah. 

           leave your office, run past your funeral, 
           leave your home, car , leave your pulpit.
            join us in the streets where we
            join us in the streets where we don’t belong.. 
don’t belong. 
you and the stars throwing light.

oooooo fall, fall.
       oooooo fall in, fall in light. 
             fall in light, ooo. 
                   fall in light, fall in light 
                              fall in light.

grow in light.

Laleh - better life

album : me and simon (2009)

Leave your country
Leave the notes
Of your future and your goals

Leave your language
You once spoke
Leave the soil where you were born

Leave all
Leave the guards
Leave the stone crushed in your heart

You’re my hero, you are mine
Dead or alive
Once you pushed me past the line
To a better life

Left your country
Left your father
Left your sister, left their warmth

Leave all
We know too well
Leave this paradise, caught in hell

You’re my hero, you are mine
Dead or alive
Once you pushed me past the line
To a better life

You’re my hero, you are mine
Dead or alive
Once you pushed me past the line
To a better life

And I, I ran
And I, I ran

Flute: Emmanuel Pahud
Piano: Eric le Sage

“Jean-Pierre,” said Poulenc: “you know you’ve always wanted me to write a sonata for flute and piano? Well, I’m going to,’ he said. ‘And the best thing is that the Americans will pay for it! I’ve been commissioned by the Coolidge Foundation to write a chamber piece in memory of Elizabeth Coolidge. Inever knew her, so I think the piece is yours.”
