Here we all are at the end of "the century of beauty lost".
We greedily ate what you gave us, the rest we tossed.
We've trapped all your rivers, paved every pass,
Pulled at your sky till we caused it to rip.
But you've got Jimi Hendrix so lets call it an even split.

I've met a girl who has turned my whole world upside down.
The stars I once stretched for, now litter the ground.
I am cursed by too little, or is it too much belief,
In the strength of another man's words.
But I've got a girl, thank you Lord.

Here we all are at the start of another thousand years.
All those love stories, yet to be told.
Ours is this river asleep at our feet,
Blessed by this wet autumn day.
Here we all are...

My Lord! Margo has a wonderful voice.

Dull, dull, dull
Calm down and listen.
This song got me to thinking Margo Timmins would be a hell of a jazz singer.
Dull, dull, dull

Getting to love CJ.



this was actually the reaction of my young son, and I am cheered by his apparent good taste, but then, he has been listening to RP for awhile now....

But I've got LOVE. Thank you Lord! {#Pray}
