Scattered In The Wind

20 Mar

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 8.57.16 AM

Down a dangerous road, I have come to where I’m standing.
With a heavy heart and my hat clutched in my hand.
Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles.
My dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind.
It’s a lonesome life when you lose the ones you live for.

If I Give My Soul by Billy Joe Shaver

Tell Him I Said Hello

18 Mar

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 8.45.43 AM

Look into his eyes
When you speak my name.
Maybe there’s a spark to start another flame.
Do I love him?
Don’t say yes or no
If he should ask you.
But he won’t I know,
Cause it’s all over and forgotten.
Just tell him I said hello.

Song: Tell Him I Said Hello

Written by Jack Canning and Bill Hegner

Deep In My Soul

“I know it’s late, I know you’re weary. I know your plans don’t include me. Still here we are…both of us lonely; longing for shelter from all that we see. Why should we worry? No one will care, girl. Look at the stars so far away. We’ve got tonight, who needs tomorrow?We’ve got tonight babe. Why don’t you stay?

Deep in my soul, I’ve been so lonely. All of my hopes, fading away. I’ve longed for love, like everyone else does. I know I’ll keep searching, even after today. So there it is, girl. I’ve said it all now. And here we are babe; what do you say? We’ve got tonight. Who needs tomorrow? We’ve got tonight babe. Why don’t you stay?”

Lyrics We’ve Got Tonight by Bob Seeger

“On my best days, I can freely enjoy the slow passing of time, the tenderness that is in my life; I can feel the love I’m a part of surrounding me and flowing through me; I am near home and I am standing hand in hand with those I love, past and present, in the sun, on the outskirts of something that feels, almost…like being free.”

Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run (book)

Somebody Up There Likes Me

Iman posted this to her Instagram account on January 10, the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s passing. What a fantastic double rainbow shot, and love the dramatic lighting. Good capture. Wonder if she shot it herself, from the balcony of where they live in Soho? It’s a feel-good, hopeful photo.

Somebody Up There Likes Me lyrics by David Bowie

He’s so divine, his soul shines.
Breaks the night, sleep tight.
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race.
He says, “I’m somebody.”
He’s got his eye on your soul, his hand on your heart.

Somebody up there (somebody) likes me.
Nothing left his eye unmoved. He
Had the plan, he had to use (somebody).
He’s so divine, his soul shines (somebody).
Breaks the night, sleep tight (somebody out there, somebody).
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race (somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody out there).
