There was no guaranteeing you could shoot your way outta there again. Gay pistoleros So take a chance now mama, horizontal or standing, gonna shake you 'til I make you tilt .. Well I've been up all night just trying to make ends meet. Meet You There Lyrics: Time is moving slow / But never quite as slow as it goes down / And I guess I'm moving slow / And I'm afraid to say the words that I think. A man dating a single mom, riding bikes with her on their date together. .. Everyone has missed somebody at some point in their life. Luckily some of us have written Favorite Lyric: “There's “I didn't know you were looking for more than I could ever be.” “And ever since I met you my life's been a song.

The Eskimos had 52 names for snow because it was important to them; there ought to be as many for love. Hunger allows no choice To the citizen or the police; We must love one another or die. AudenSeptember 1, Lines ; for a anthology text the poet changed this line to "We must love one another and die" to avoid what he regarded as a falsehood in the original.

Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: Love, and do what thou wilt: Love and then what you will, do. What does love look like? It has the hands to help others.

Into the Woods - Lyrics

It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like. What sort of shape does it have? What sort of height does it have? What sort of feet does it have?

What sort of hands does it have? No one can say. Yet it has feet, for they lead to the Church. It has hands, for they stretch out to the poor person. It has eyes, for that is how he is in need is understood: Blessed, it says, is he who understands. Boniface Ramsey, Works of St. New City Press,Homily 7, Para 10, p. Quantum in te crescit amor, tantum crescit pulchritudo; quia ipsa charitas est animae pulchritudo. Beauty grows in you to the extent that love grows, because charity itself is the soul 's beauty.

Inasmuch as love grows in you, in so much beauty grows; for love is itself the beauty of the soul. Meyers Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul. Laughing as you said it, in the low sunlight — so brief in November, and impossibly bright. Like air so cold it hurts to breathe it. And the colour comes to my face. Woke up thirsty, beset by memory, coming in swells. And dreams stay with me, long into morning, strange wells.

It was a glimpse but I did see him; at full height. And what is left unspoken, is free, in the coming and the going, my heart knew only motion. In old recycling bins I grew watermelon vine — and all of it was mine.

And everything I saw seemed to get so small like from a speeding car, old familiar barns. I made hard wheat bread, and rhubarb berry fool, and I gave it all to you. I crumpled all my clothes and to the floor I threw them and turned right back to you.

My rotten softwood fence my sagging hydro line — all of it is mine. The mice come in at night in the muddy streetlight shine see the hulking brown skyline — all of it is mine. And all the while I shrunk I pulled my clothes around like my body I could drown. I dug up shattered glass and forgotten plastic trucks and coiled faded twine — and all of it is mine. My buckling plaster walls, cracks snake and wind, all of it is mine.

And everything I knew I seemed to see right through like cheap cotton skirts like the Madawaska view. All these things I knew. Muddy white petunias, lobelia trails blue-eyed, all of it is mine. Irises shot up high and white lilies tumbled shy, all of it is mine. I dug up all my carrots with their wild orange hue, and I gave them all to you.

Came So Easy Just cause it came so easy like quiet evenings in my kitchen. Just cause it came so easy like little breezes of indecision. Line of ants came crawling through the cracks there in my tiles. Sat there and I watched them as they pillaged in single file. Just cause it came so freely I was loath to admit it. Just cause it came so quickly — I was startled like I had tripped.

And I reached out an accusing hand to the treachery of the street. Leaning as though in the wind you helped me to my feet. Your kind words came so easy and I half winced at the sugar sweetness. Made me feel so wealthy so I got tongue-tied, I got restless, and I opened my doors and windows to the many creatures of July. Strange cats come in mewling, bugs that crawl and ones that fly, all my flour fell victim to slow and sullen moths, in the heat we both were gasping wrapped in dripping cloths.

Traveler I felt just like a traveler as I went walking up my street. I felt just like a stranger as I set my key in the door, and lingered. Standing there on the porch. Little flecks on the brick, where the paint did not stick, I never could paint in the lines. I felt just like a tourist, seeing it all for the first time.

Unsure of what I might find. I set down my boots where he would hang up his suits and I brushed the snow from my coat, to the skin I was soaked.

I felt just like a traveller, my eyes open wide. Like a stranger, uncertain and shy. Called to see if I been eating, wondered when to come by. You should have called somebody before it ever came to this.

You should have called somebody. Trying I am trying… I am trying not to let words just shake me off. They would slip and be gone like minnows. Just a silvery flash in the shadows. I would be blank like an unlit street sign. On the bank just waiting on my line. Loving everything I see and no way to tell you what to look for.

I am trying for some kind of grace. Chip on My Shoulder You can have anything you could ever be wanting, the country will give you your fill. I took their advice and I did what they told me, taking my turn as the shill. Oh this chip on my shoulder I know it so well, sure as the backs of my hands. And I try to be gracious, as ever I can, as gentle and kind as I can stand. Oh all of them loved me, because I was empty. And they saw in me something they could feed. But for this chip on my shoulder I could have enjoyed their slippery honeyed embrace.

Oh I spoke to my sisters and the child of a friend but no promises could I keep. Know it to See It Take your bag, get in the car, get in the car. Where you can sit at the wheel for a real short minute, smoking a cigarette.

I know it to see it, I see it all the time. Or what you might do. Yarrow and Mint It was the summer of scent, yarrow and mint. How could I forget the slight still scent of blue vervain or common plantain? I learned to know the names they been called, years ago. In the heat, the air lay heavy on the street. Sweating with smoke, lilac, and gasoline.

What are you looking for? Something you never even seen. Better to know all those weeds that ever will grow beneath your feet.


Running Around Asking I went running around asking everybody I know. I already asked my mother and the woman who lives next door. But it was good to sit together, on her couch of seafoam green. All her secrets safe without me. And I called up a friend who lives very far away.

Whined from the receiver the muffled dial tone. You were outside smoking, standing out in the snow. Nobody In the air, first scent of snow. All along the ground the last milkweed silk blows. It was hardwon, but I found my place. It was hardwon but I found my place.

Meet You There - NBA Jam '95 Version

All I could wish upon you is the same. I turned around and everything was strange.

mother may i meet you there lyrics

Once lost, not a trace. But you could find yourself down by a lake. About as wide and still as you can take. Down by that cold, clear lake. And it took so long, staring back at you, to open the door and walk through. And what if I been fooled? Knowing this time I'd run from him, He spread pitch on the stairs. I was caught unawares. And I thought, Well, he cares. This is more than just malice. Better stop and take stock while you're standing here stuck On the steps of the palace.

You think, What do you want? You think, Make a decision! Why not stay and be caught? You think, Well, it's a thought. What would be his response? But then what if he knew who you were, When you know that you're not what he thinks that he wants? And then, what if you are What a Prince would envision? Although how can you know who you are, Till you know what you want, which you don't, So then which do you pick: Where you're safe out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong, Or where everything's right, And you know that you'll never belong?

And whichever you pick, do it quick, 'Cause you're starting to stick To the steps of the palace! It's your first big decision. The choice isn't easy to make. To arrive at a Ball is exciting, and all, Once you're there, though, it's scary. And it's fun to deceive when you know you can leave, But you have to be wary.

There's a lot that's at stake, but you've stalled long enough, 'Cause you're still standing stuck on the stuff on the steps. Better run along home! And avoid the collision. Even though they don't care, you'd be better off there, Where there's nothing to choose, so there's nothing to lose, So you pry up your shoes And then, out of the blue, And without any guide, You know what your decision is.

Which is not to decide. You just leave him a clue. And then see what HE'LL do. Now it's he and not you who is stuck with the shoe In a stew.

And you've learned something too, Something you never knew, On the steps of the Palace! Ever After [ Top ] Cinderella: I didn't think I'd wed a Prince. I didn't think I'd ever find you. Cinderella, CP, Baker, Wife: I didn't think I could be so happy! And it came to pass, all that seemed wrong was now right, the kingdoms were filled with joy, and those who deserved to were certain to live a long and happy life.

Journey over, all is mended, And it's not just for today, But tomorrow, and extended Ever after! All the curses have been ended, The reverses wiped away. All is tenderness and laughter For forever after! Happy now and happy hence And happy ever after! There were dangers-- Company: We were frightened-- NA: But we hid it-- NA: And the paths would often swerve.

There were constant-- Company: That we did it. But they never lost their nerve. And they we reached the right conclusions, And they we got what they we deserve! Not a sigh and not a sorrow, Tenderness and laughter.

Joy today and bliss tomorrow, And forever after! But we were blind. Then we went into the woods To get our wish And now we're really blind. I had everything but beauty. I had power, And a daughter like a flower, In a tower. Then I went into the woods to get my wish And now I'm ordinary. Lost my power, and my flower.

We're I'm unhappy now, unhappy hence, As well as ever after. Had we used our common sense, Been worthy of our discontents To be happy, and forever, You must see your wish come true.

Don't be careful, don't be clever. When you see your wish, pursue. It's a dangerous endeavor, But the only thing to do-- [in three groups: When you know your wish, If you want your wish, You can have your wish, But you can't just wish-- No, to get your wish [unison] You go into the woods, Where nothing's clear, Where witches, ghosts And wolves appear.

Into the woods And through the fear, You have to take the journey. Into the woods And down the dell, In vain perhaps, But who can tell? Into the woods to lift the spell, Into the woods to lose the longing. Into the woods to have the child, To wed the Prince, To get the money, To save the house, To kill the wolf, To find the father, To conquer the kingdom, to have, to wed, To get, to save, To kill, to keep, To go to the Festival!

So Happy [ Top ] NA: Once upon a time-- --later-- Cinderella: More than the moon. I wish to sponsor a Festival. I miss my kingdom up in the sky. I wish we had more room. But despite some minor inconveniences, they were all content. I never thought I'd wed a Prince. I never thought I'd find perfection. I never thought I could be so happy! Not an unhappy moment since. I didn't think we'd be this rich.

Not a conceivable objection. I never thought we'd have a baby. Happy now, Happy hence, Happy ever after-- Stepmother, Stepsisters: We're so happy you're so happy! Just as long as you stay happy, We'll stay happy! Darling, I must go now. We should really sell it. Wishes may bring problems, Such that you regret them.

Better that, though, Than to never get them. I'm going to be a perfect wife! I'm going to be a perfect son! I'm going to be a perfect mother! I'm going to be a perfect father! Cinderella, Jack, Jack's Mother, Wife: I'm going to see that he she Is so happy! I never thought I'd love my life! I would have settled for another! Then to become a wife.

Then to be set for life. Then to beget a child. We had to go through thick and thin. We had to lose a lot to win. I ventured out and saw within. I never thought I'd be so much I hadn't been! I'm so hap-- [crash, dialogue, then: Who could do such a thing?

Anything that leaves a footprint that large is no 'who. Do you think it was a bear? Besides, you ever see a bear with forty-foot feet? No scorch marks--usually they're linked.

Into the woods, It's always when You think at last you're through, and then Into the woods you go again To take another journey. Into the woods, The weather's clear, We've been before, we've naught to fear. Into the woods, away from here-- Jack: Into the woods, to find a giant--! Into the woods to Grandmother's house. Into the woods, The path is straight, No reason, then, to hesitate-- Wife: Into the woods, It's not so late, It's just another journey. Into the woods, But not too long: The skies are strange, The winds are strong.

Into the woods to see what's wrong. Into the woods to slay the giant! Into the woods to shield the child. To flee the winds. To find a future. To see what the trouble is Reprise [ Top ] CP: High in a tower-- Like yours was, but higher-- A beauty asleep. All 'round the tower, A thicket of briar A hundred feet deep.

No frustration more keen, When the one thing you want Is a thing that you've not even seen. I've found a casket Entirely of glass-- No, it's unbreakable. Inside--don't ask it-- A maiden, alas, Just as unwakeable-- Both: Is the way always barred?

She has skin white as snow-- CP: Did you learn her name? No, there's a dwarf standing guard. Such that princes must weep! Always in thrall most To anything almost, Or something asleep. If it were not for the thicket-- RP: A thicket's no trick. The quickest is pick it apart with a stick-- CP: Yes, but even one prick-- It's my thing about blood. It's no sicker than your thing with dwarves.

Dwarves are very upsetting. Not forgetting the tasks unachievable, Mountains unscalable-- If it's conceivable But unavailable, Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-- Agony! Not to know what you miss. While they lie there for years-- RP: And you cry on their biers-- Both: Ah well, back to my wife Lament [ Top ] Witch: This is the world I meant.

Couldn't you stay content, Safe behind walls As I could not. Now you know what's out there in the world. No one can prepare you for the world. How could I, who loved you as you were, How could I have shielded you from her, Or them? No matter what you say, Children won't listen. No matter what you know, Children refuse to learn. Guide them along the way, Still, they won't listen. Children can only grow From something you love, To something you lose!

Any Moment [ Top ] CP: Anything can happen in the woods. May I kiss you? Any moment, we could be crushed. This is ridiculous What am I doing here? I'm in the wrong story! Wait, one moment please, sir! We can't do this. And I have a. Of course, you're right. Foolishness can happen in the woods. Let your hesitations be hushed. Any moment, big or small Is a moment after all. Seize the moment; skies may fall Any moment. Right and wrong don't matter in the woods, Only feelings.

Let us meet the moment unblushed. Life is often so unpleasant, You must know that, as a peasant. Best to take a moment present As a present, for the moment. I must leave you. Oh, yes, the giant. Will we find each other in the woods again?

This was just a moment in the woods. Shimmering and lovely and sad. Leave the moment, just be glad For the moment that we had. Every moment is of moment When you're in the woods. Moments In the Woods [ Top ] Wife: Did a prince really kiss me, And kiss me. And did I kiss him back? Does he miss me? Was he suddenly getting bored with me? Stop dreaming, Stop prancing about the woods. What is it about the woods? Back to life, back to sense, back to child, back to husband.

No one lives in the woods! There are vows, there are ties, There are needs, there are standards, There are shouldn't and shoulds. Why not both instead? There's the answer, if you're clever. Have a child for warmth, and a baker for bread, And a prince, for.

Face the facts, find the boy, join the group, stop the giant-- Just get out of these woods. Just a trick of the woods! Just a moment, One peculiar passing moment. Must it all be either less or more, Either plain or grand? Is it always 'or'? Is it never 'and'?

That's what woods are for: For those moments in the woods Oh, if life were made of moments, Even now and then a bad one--! But if life were only moments, Then you'd never know you had one. First a witch, then a child, then a Prince, then a moment-- Who can live in the woods? And to get what you wish, only just for a moment-- These are dangerous woods. Let the moment go. Don't forget it for a moment, though.

Just remembering you had an 'and,' when you're back to 'or,' Makes the 'or' mean more than is did before. Now I understand-- And it's time to leave the woods.

Courtney Barnett - Official Website - Lyrics

Your Fault [ Top ] Baker: It's because of you there's a giant in our midst, and my wife is dead! But it isn't my fault, I was given those beans! You persuaded me to trade away my cow for beans! And without those beans, there'd have been no stalk To get up to the giant in the first place! Wait a minute, magic beans for a cow so old That you had to tell a lie to sell it, which you told! Were they worthless beans? Oh, and tell us who persuaded you to steal that gold!

See, it's your fault. So it's your fault. Wait a minute, though-- I only stole the gold to get my cow back From you! So it's your fault! I'd have kept those beans, but our house was cursed. She made us get a cow to get the curse reversed! It's his father's fault that the curse got placed, And the place got cursed in the first place!

O My Father

Then it's his fault! It was his fault. Yes, it is, it's his. Wait a minute, though-- I chopped down the beanstalk, right?

But without any beanstalk, then what's queer Is how did the second giant get down here In the first place? Well, who had the other bean? You pocketed the other bean. So it's your f--! No, it isn't, 'cause I gave it to my wife! So it's her f--!

Then whose is it? You mean that old bean-- that your wife--? Oh, dear-- [as they all look at her] But I never knew, and so I threw-- Well, don't look here! See, it's her fault-- Cinderella: And it isn't mine at all! Well, if you hadn't gone back up again-- Jack: We were needy-- Cinderella: Did you need that hen? But I got it for my mother--! So it's her fault then!

Yes, and what about the harp in the third place? Jack [referring to LRRH]: She went and dared me to! I dared you to? You dared me to! If you hadn't dared him to-- Baker [to Jack] And you had left the harp alone, We wouldn't be in trouble in the first place! LRRH [to Cinderella, over]: Well, if you hadn't thrown away the bean In the first place--! It was your fault! Cinderella [referring to Witch]: Well, if she hadn't raised them in the first place--!

Jack [over, to Witch]: Yes, if you hadn't raised them in the first place--!
