Are you?


(Guitar INTRO)
(NO OTHER INSTRUMENTS)

Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra
Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra

The evening sky
Makes the sea look red
But, the waves, they keep flowing

Nothing is unsaid
Nothing unheard
And, the waves, they keep flowing

Hopes
They rise
Just like the waves with the tide

Dreams
They fall down
Just like the waves with the tide

But, tell me this
Does that stop you from dreaming? 
The silence tells a new story
You don’t ever stop to dream again

Passive breeze blows your hair
Active signals your eyes are sending me
Are you?

Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra
Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra

(Guitar SOLO)

A story of glory
A person who kisses her dreams
Come, sit down
Let me tell it to you

The one you like
Will be yours
She tells me so

I stand eager
Without her here
And, I don’t know
When is the right time
Slowly
Steadily
I will know it
And, so will she

Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra
Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra

But, tell me this
Does that stop you from dreaming? 
The silence tells a new story
You don’t ever stop to dream again

Passive breeze blows your hair
Active signals your eyes are sending me
Are you?

(Guitar SOLO)

What a phase of time is this?
What a frame of mind is this?
The sun melts into the sea

It is beautiful
I see it through your eyes
And, I get lost in something

You tell me
Is it your eyes?
Or, is it the sun?
‘Cause I don’t know
What I am feeling

With every blink
Comes a glittering
Dream before my eyes

I hear myself back again

Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra
Ta Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra

But, tell me this
Does that stop you from dreaming? 
The silence tells a new story
You don’t ever stop to dream again

Passive breeze blows your hair
Active signals your eyes are sending me
Are you?

Thanks for the player space. And this one is lean and serene, but deep, too.

The thyroid stuff appears to be the answer to roughly 40 years of misdiagnosis, guilt, shame, and confusion. I write about it because this condition appears to be invisible for men, andvastly undertreated in women.

Today's update was the trigger for my proof that it's working exactly as my research told me it would.

Now I won't die ignorant.

Peace,

James

Very interesting questing "does that stop you from dreaming?" Dreams come out of being free enough to dream, of feeling enough peace... from being yourself... and sometimes that can be held up by confusion and the time of life that you are at...

Been there. The answer has been yes, though I have been alone.

these words are like rays of light, hopeful and uplifting.

It's the turbulent times that calls dreams to action. I get the sense of seeking... are you?

Interesting opposing sides in this piece. There is the strength of some things of nature like the sky and the sea. Powerful and uncontrollable. Then there is the disquieting human frailty and confusion. "Cause I don't know what I am feeling" speaks of confusion. Dreaming is one thing; fantasy is something else.

Hi AJ,

This is another amazing song here...the imagery here is beautiful. To me, you are pondering life and the world of dreams vs. reality.

@Shadow - Yes, they are meant to be so. Thanks.

Real Me said...

@Wendilea - I get your point... we are all seeking, aren't we?

Real Me said...

@TechnoBabe - Obvious! Thanks!

Real Me said...

@The Write Girl - Yes, thanks!!

Just thinking of how the right time has a way of presenting itself....
