...Shut yer POEM HOLE ir i shut it fir ye ..."

Truth and Beauty, truth and beauty;    sunken treasure on an uncharted isle.  Truth and beauty, truth and beauty;    how I love to see the Goddess smile.

What are you trying to do?                     What motivates you?                              Yet when you get close                            and they open a sleepy eye                    roll over, disappear and leave you         high and dry.

We've been searching along here           quite some time.  No-one knows           what we've been doing;                           just some phantoms we're pursuing.

Those two foxes over there;              let's talk with them about it.           Truth and beauty                               buried in all experience;                       the white band of pure light,             twin ideals of will and consciousness.    Swings out into the breeze,                 picks up speed.

Truth and beauty, truth and beauty;  sunken treasures on an uncharted isle.   Truth and beauty, truth and booty;  how I love to see the goddess                see the goddess smile.


Truth and Beauty

(words and music 1979 Donald R Ricker)


 

 

 

 

 


We should never say we're sorry       for the true loves that we've lost, remembering golden highs that     keep us glad, keep us glad.             

I can think I was kind of stupid,            I   can see how much that cost,           and I care , not knowing why I had   the attitude I had.

For I was blind and I did not know  you've got to re-center,                 you've got to learn to let go.               Yes, I was blind; you were kind.      Now I need to re-enter,                     now that life's getting better.

And you want me to go to you              go to you go to you want me to       come with you come with you          come with you you want me to            be with you share with you               play with you you want me to         need you like you needed me.

And you never did betray me, no matter what I thought, and I know that's true of every friend since you.  Whenever I replay that good old platter that you bought, Lord, let me trust in love again, for I'm feeling blue, I'm feeling blue.

And I'll be blue, long as I don't know that you've got to re-center,               got to learn how to let go.                  Yes, I've been blind, let's be kind      and we can re-enter now that          life's getting better.

And I want you to go with me show to me flow with me want you to come with me run with me sun with me have fun want you to share with me care for me play with me want you to need me like I needed you.

Now that you are married and         you live in a big old town,                      I'd like to think                                     you still like to think of me.

I'm out on the airwaves somewhere, girl, I still can't settle down.              Lord let me trust in love again           for I'm feeling free, oh I'm feeling free.

And I'll be free, long as I know        that you've got to re-center,               got to learn how to grow.                   Yes, I've been blind, let's be kind     now we can re-enter now that          life's getting better,                               it's getting better.

 


I was Blind
