Ian Axel - This Is the New Year

♫Speak louder than the words before you,
And give them meaning no one else has found
The role we play is so important,
We are the voices of the underground.
And I will give the world to you.

Say everything you've always wanted
Be not afraid of who you really are
Because in the end we have each other
And that's at least one thing worth living for
And I would give the world to you.♫

Fresh meaning
to old lines
with urban words

I misplace
my vowels
on porpuse
give the word
to you

These Ol' Keys - Nathan Angelo

♫So take me back to a familiar place
where the tears come streaming down my face again
oh, and I can’t hide
all of the doubts that take me far away from
the piano that my hands were made to play
the rain and shine
so here I’ll stay
and ever I will play these ol’ keys.♫

There's a fine layer
on 88,
though middle
C (see?)
has seen play
and the tink tink
of an absentminded thumb

Pages yellowed
and curled
have closed their throats
to 98
songs loosed
before my heart knew how
to pour
or the beat
of it's own

maybe it's time
to dust

Chris Rice Hallelujah

(This song has never failed to make me cry. Not once. I couldn't find a good rendering on YouTube, so I created this one. Some of the photos are my own, but I wanted also to include the struggle, as I believe there can be praise in the most desperate of places. I try, never to be overtly spiritual in any of my blogs. I suppose I fear being pigeon holed. I am as broken as the fractured, as disconcerted as the lost, as confused as the feeble minded, and as desolate as the heart broken. And yet...I seek)

♫The pulse of life within my wrist
a fallen snow, a rising mist
there is no higher place than this.♫
I have never been
so lost
as now
with nothing but
the reach
of my hand
