“Diamonds and Rust”

Sung by Joan Baez

Post Saturday 21st June 2014

 

When I was a kid I had such a crush on Joan Baez.

A few days before Woodstock, I was able to see her in a LIVE CONCERT at Madison Square Garden in NYC. I stood so close to her while taking her photograph I could almost reach out and touch her. It was a very intimate setting. My seats were fourth row folding chairs right up to the Circle in the Round type stage.

I was planning on seeing her in Woodstock a few days later.

The experience of driving to the Woodstock Rock Festival in the rain and running into a four lane parking lot on a two way road about a 1/2 mile from the field sinking into mud was insane and mystical.

As we walked to Yasgur’s Farm, the air was filled with the deliciously sweet smell of marijuana. Water cost a $ dollar a glass. It was an experience to remember. No one knew Woodstock would be so creatively insane.

Never did get to see Joan Baez perform there.

I was with my younger brother who began flipping out. In order to take care of him I needed to leave.

I was touched by Woodstock and never went back to who I was before that moment. It was the beginning of my transformation. A new life started that wonderfully crazy and bizarre weekend. It was the beginning of the total downfall of authority inside my head.

A Great Start and I also had the influences of Joan Baez to guide me.  ♥  Jennifer Kiley


Joan Baez – Diamonds and Rust – LIVE 1975

DIAMONDS AND RUST
Words and Music by Joan Baez

Well I’ll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that’s not unusual
It’s just that the moon is full
And you happened to call
And here I sit
Hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I’d known
A couple of light years ago
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes
Were bluer than robin’s eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in the midwest
Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks
You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing
With brown leaves falling around
And snow in your hair
Now you’re smiling out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington Square
Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there

Now you’re telling me
You’re not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague
Because I need some of that vagueness now
It’s all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly
And if you’re offering me diamonds and rust
I’ve already paid

Song Lille by Lisa Hannigan

Lille
by Lisa Hannigan

He went to see for a day
He wanted to know what to say
When he’s asked what he’d done
In the past to someone
That he loved endlessly…
Now she’s gone, and so is he…

I went to war every morning
I lost my way, but now I’m following
What you said in my arms…
What I read in the charms
That I loved durably
Now it’s dead and gone, and I am free…

I went to sleep for the daytime
I shut my eyes to the sunshine
Turned my head away from the noise
Bruise and drip decay of childish toys
That I love arguably
All our labouring gone to seed

We went out to play for the evening
We wanted to hold on to the feeling
On the stretch in the sun
And the breathlessness as we run
To the beach endlessly
As the sun creeps up on the sea…

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day

The Breach – Dustin Tebbutt [Official]

The Breach – Lyrics
Written by Dustin Tebbutt

We’re all scared of trenches
And grow weak at knees
I want you to know that
If all you’ve ever wanted was a dream
Then you know that I can’t help you

But did I show you love
In the author on my face
‘Cause you know you left a hollow
Where your body cut an alcove
Did I show you love
‘Cause the silence never stayed
It’s a breach I’ll never cover

You happened out the back door
Laying bare this need
Oh, you opened up this vessel
And gather all the quivers
That never got to fly
And a one and only cipher

Tiamet – Do You Dream of Me?

Do You Dream of Me?
by Edlund, Sorychta

Come down, slowly
I’m waiting by your side
Come down, carefully
I’m waiting by your side
Ill grab you when you fall
Down to the waking hours
Silents sweeps as golden corn
Down to the waking hours
How I wish that I could
Break into your dreams
Do I have the force I need
To break into your dreams
I hold you in my arms
Dimmed by scarlet morning red
I whisper in your ear
Do you dream of me ?

Wish You Were Here – David Gilmour

Wish You Were Here

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

POETRY OUT LOUD


Firework – Katy Perry

Firework
By Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under?
Scream but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time you’ll know

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
