Book III
Happy Rain



How many times must I be teased,
by the flowers lovely stare? That
flower that gives my Soul its sight,
its very breath, its very life?
How many time must I be teased, no,
tortured by its very presence? That
presence, which is the Souls reflection,
its skin, its delight.
How many times must I be saddened,
before the flowers youthful face, that
face and stem that turns the air to
move, and blush with breeze?
How many times must this be said,
before the flower turns its head, to
face the one who waits for it to see?

I saw you there
between moon and stars
with your shadow
on the ground.

I saw you there
on this open field,
with no one else
around.

I saw you there
through a thin
glass wall,
as a fly feeling bound.

I saw you there
until you disappeared,
and I couldn't
make a sound.


THE ALLEY-CAT

You are the ALLEY-CAT,
Who roams the darkest streets.
You are the Queen of all the nights,
The pulse in hearts that beats.

You are the ALLEY-CAT,
The shadow on the wall,
And if one dares to meet your eyes,
You slay them one and all.

You are the ALLEY-CAT,
The rainbow of the night.
The one who travels by herself,
With her own natural light.

You are the ALLEY-CAT,
The fire in the coal.
You are the ALLEY-CAT,
The keeper of my Soul.




LOOKING AT YOU

I've been looking at you
For a long, long time,
'Cause I like what I see
And I wish you were mine.

But I can't let you know
These feelings I have,
'Cause you're with someone else
And it's really too bad.

But that won't stop
These feelings inside,
Though you know that I look
It's the feelings I hide.

And you won't ever know
How much I care,
Or the dreams I have
And this distant affair.

But if thoughts can travel
As some say do,
Then maybe you can feel
Something tugging at you.

I like what I see
And I wish it could be,
And my heart feels it too
'Cause it's telling me.

But you'll never know
These feelings inside,
Though you know I look
It's the feelings I hide.


I WHISPER OUT YOUR NAME

I whisper our your name,
And hope you hear
From whom it came,
I whisper it with all my heart,
In hopes you do the same.
Three times you came to me,
Though you knew it not,
Three times you came to me,
In dreams not soon forgot.
Three times I felt your love,
Though love you never sought,
Three times this mystery,
Filled that empty spot.
I whisper out your name
I whisper out your name
I whisper it and whisper it
And hope you do the same.






YOUR EYES STARTED A CRIME

Your eyes started a crime,
When I looked through to your heart.
Your eyes started a crime,
When I felt each moving part.
And since it all has happened,
I have found no relief,
Your eyes started a crime,
And now I want
Just like a thief.

I felt every single beat,
Now there's never
Any sleep while I know
I'm in love with you,
And this feeling is
The one that's true.

Your eyes started a crime,
When I looked through to your heart.
Your eyes started a crime,
When I felt each moving part.
Now every single minute,
Of every single day,
I think of things
That I can do
To steal your heart away.

Your eyes started a crime
When I looked through to your heart
Your eyes started a crime
When I felt each moving part
And since it all has happened
I have found no relief
Your eyes started a crime
And now I want
Just like a thief.


THE MOMENT I LOOKED IN YOUR EYES

There's just something about you no others could do.
There's just something about you I already knew.

There's something about the way you look,
There's something you couldn't disguise.
There's something about the way I shook
The moment I looked in your eyes.

I know it makes me feel special a feeling that fills me inside.
There's something about the way it took, letting me know our ties.

When we're together, I feel so whole
The rose it opens, each petal unfolds.
And when we're apart, I feel it just close,
But when I'm with you, it always just knows.

There's just something about you no others could do.
There's just something about you I already knew.

There's something about the way you look,
There's something you couldn't disguise.
There's something about the way I shook
The moment I looked in your eyes.


AGAIN

Every time I see you
I fall in love again.
Every time it seems
Like the first time
That it's been.

If coming round a corner
Suddenly you're there,
I get uneasy feelings,
And feel them everywhere.

Every time it seems
Like the first time
That it's been.

My heart it jumps
I get goose bumps,
And when I speak
My throat it lumps.

Every time I see you
I fall in love again.
Every time it seems
Like the first time
That it's been.

I just don't think
It's ever going to change,
These feelings that
Act so very strange.



Every time it seems
Like the first time
That it's been.

My face will blush
I get a rush.
And still I twitch,
And have this crush.

Every time I see you
I fall in love again.
Every time it seems
Like the first time
That it's been.

No matter the time
Winter through fall,
I have spring feelings
Always to recall.
Every time it seems
Like the first time
That it's been.

And I've got these feelings
That are starting all over
Again.
Again.

'Cause every time I see you
I fall in love...again.


IT'S PUSHING EVERY THING

The moon's half full,
Clouds abound.
The wind is pushing things around.

The river's on the move,
Talking as they say
Pushing things,
Out of its way.

A few weeks now
And finally spring.
I can feel it coming,
Pushing every thing.

It's pushing every thing,
Pushing every thing.
I can feel it coming,
Pushing every thing.

It's been a long cold winter,
Sleeping as they say. But,
I've been getting stronger,
I know in every way.

I can feel it in my toes,
Feel it in my head.
Feel it even where,
Last year it felt so dead.

Spring, Spring
Let it come.
'Cause I'll be with you,
In this early run.



Sometimes it takes,
A winter or two.
To gain the strength,
Those winters do.

A few weeks now,
And finally spring.
I can feel it coming,
Pushing every thing.

Pushing every thing,
Pushing every thing.
I can feel it coming,
Pushing every thing.

The trees are being shook,
It's Mother as they say.
Telling them to wake up,
Spring is on the way.

A few weeks now,
And finally spring.
I can feel it coming,
Pushing every thing.

It's pushing every thing,
Pushing every thing,
I can feel it coming,
It's pushing every thing.


YOU TOUCHED ME

When you touched me,
You touched the jewel
That's in my heart.
When you touched me,
I felt it warm
In every part
Because you touched me!

And when I looked
Into your eyes
I saw that love
That never tries.
I saw the moon
The open sky,
The light that never dies.
Because you touched me!

It was that simple kind of touch
That means so very much.
Simple yet so rare
For I knew, that you were there.
Like the space between the weave
Before the garment is conceived,
You touched the very true
And I knew it came from you,
Because, you touched me -




I NEED YOUR TOUCH

I need the touch, of something new.
I need the touch, shared by two.
I need the touch, that says it's true.
I need the touch, I get from you.

Take me for a long long ride,
Take me where the road divides.
Take me where you cannot hide,
To that place long left untried.

Passion makes my soul vibrate,
It needs to feel and to create.
This love cannot be made to wait,
Or else it will disintegrate.

Reaching out touching sky,
Midnight madness, flying high.
Wing to wing just you and I,
Making love as we fly.

Tie me up, blindfold me,
Let me swim in ecstasy.
Let me feel you by my side,
Let me know you deep inside.

Tease me test me second guess me,
Something new will impress me.
Like the way you flew into my life,
And gave it wings that took
My soul in flight.

I need the touch of something new.
I need the touch shared by two.
I need the touch that says it's true
I need the touch I get from you.


A LIFETIME

I waited a lifetime
It's true
I waited a lifetime
For you.

I searched for so long
As I looked everywhere
'Til that moment arrived
And you were just there.

I didn't think
This would happen to me
To find that other
Whom I'd choose to be.
That night of the fireflies
Started it all
As both of us answered
Their magical call.

When my arms slipped around you
I knew it was right
Just the way it felt
Mid the flashing of lights.



Then the kisses we shared
That included some tea
Felt so comfortable
Exciting and free.

There was fire and wholeness
That innocent boldness
When Everything came alive
And I knew when you left
That I wouldn't forget
What a lifetime I carried inside
Or that night of the fireflies.

I waited a lifetime
It's true,
I waited a lifetime
For you.



WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR

What are we waiting for
Wings are meant to fly.
What are we waiting for
With so much open sky.

What are we waiting for
Time disappears.
What are we waiting for
When so will its fears.

Sometimes it's an instant
When you know love true.
Sometimes it's an instant
When it comes before you.

Sometimes it's an instant
When you know that you do.
And sometimes that's enough
To last a lifetime for two.

What are we waiting for
Time disappears.
What are we waiting for
When so will its fears.

What are we waiting for
If you know I love you
What are we waiting for
If you're feeling it too.

Pain is the price for love to survive.
Pain is the price to know you're alive
Pain is the price if wings are to fly.
But love is the joy when they sail
Through the sky.

What are we waiting for
When the sky is now clear.
What are we waiting for
When love is so near.


I NEED YOU

I need you like the forest needs rain.
I want you,
As a little boy who is in a lot of pain.

You're the soil, you're the sea,
You're the air surrounding me,
And I need you like a little boy
To take away my pain.

You are liquid, I am mass,
You're the sparkle in the glass.
You inspire, I defend,
You inquire, I descend
You're my youth, you're my sight,
You're the dream I have each night.

And I need you
Like a forest needs rain.

You're the flower in the wild,
You give birth to every child,
You're the shimmer, you're the mist,
You're the dew, when softly lit,
And like a stem
You're the flower that sits
Upon the end.

And I need you
Like a forest needs rain.





WITH A LITTLE ROMANCE

Chorus
With a little romance, you could have it all,
I'd bend like the willow, like a star I would fall.
You have nothing to lose, just give it a chance,
'Cause I'd do anything, for a little romance.

Flowers with candy, dinner for two,
A walk holding hands, would do nicely thank you.
A passionate kiss, a gentle touch,
I'm really not asking for very much.

Chorus

Tell me I'm pretty, recite me a poem,
Make me feel special let it be shown.
A telephone call just to say I love you,
And you'd be surprised, at what I would do.

Steal home from work some afternoon,
Go for a drive wait for the moon.
Look at the stars shift through the night
And when the sun starts to rise, hold me real tight.

Chorus


FIND ME THERE

No - you won't find me there,
if you don't know where to look.
No - you won't find me there,
like some page in a book.
But if you know how to feel,
let your feelings see,
'Cause feelings always know
just where I will be.
Last night I was singing,
I was on center stage,
And I was singing a song,
about a bird who left its cage.
And I felt this feeling,
I knew as ecstasy,
'Cause the song that I sung,
was all about being free.

No - you won't find me there,
if you don't know where to look.
No - you won't find me there,
like some page in a book.
But if you know how to feel,
let your feelings see,
'Cause feelings always know
just where I will be.
Floppy hats, baggy pants,
punky hair, or elegance.
Or, maybe a special tattoo,
well, that is me in every case,
decorating what I face,
feeling what feelings,
those feelings can do.

No - you won't find me there,
if you don't know where to look.
No - you won't find me there,
like some page in a book.
But if you know how to feel,
let your feelings see,
'Cause feelings always know
just where I will be.


YOU'RE STRONG THAN I

You're stronger than I,
you who fixes your hair.
Yes you, daughter of the wind.
I watch you with amazement,
as you place yourself,
aside with day.

You're stronger than I,
even as winter comes between,
the summer flower, patiently waits.

You are the ornament, the flashing,
the celebration.
You're stronger than I,
you who fixes your hair.

Yes you, who rises with the sun,
dines with the moon,
and dances with the shadows.

I watch you with amazement,
as you move like a stream
excited by spring.
You're stronger than I.

You're stronger than I,
for even death must bow to you.
For even death,
was once your seed.

You're strong than I,
yes you who fixes your hair,
while I, still dream.



'CAUSE I LOVE A WOMAN

I don't know where I'm going, but I do know where I've been.
Oh I had my share of heartaches, but I'd do it all again.
'Cause I love a woman, and what she does to my surprise,
I like all those things I can feel, and to see her with my eyes.

I like rainbows and snowflakes, walking on dry leaves,
The smell from a rosebush, when my senses are most pleased.
I like being here alive, I like this density,
Don't care about the other side, this side is good enough for me.

'Cause I love a woman, yes I love a woman,
I love this woman, and I like what I see.
Now this woman's really special, she sure knows how to change,
She even taught me how to love, without guilt without shame.

And facing feelings isn't easy while trying to understand,
But crossing over seems to be, what someone else for us has planned.
Now I don't know where I'm going, but I do know where I've been.
Oh I had my share of heartaches, but I'd do it all again,
'Cause I love a woman, yes I love a woman, I love this woman,
And that's good enough for me.


AT THE SAME TIME

A love begins,
A love it ends,
It goes up,
while it descends.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.

A war is fought,
it is not.
Some are at the bottom,
Some are on top.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time

Someone quits,
someone tries.
Some are feeling low,
some are feeling high.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.

People are hungry,
people are fed,
Some are over-eating,
or fasting instead.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.



A baby is born,
Someone just dies.
Someone is laughing,
Someone just cries.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.

Sun is shining,
stars are out.
Somewhere it's raining,
somewhere there's drought.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.

It's twelve o'clock,
Somewhere it's three.
Eyes are closing,
others opening to see.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.

And life goes on,
and on and on.
For we're all weak,
And we're all strong.

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.


THE ARRIVAL

When the hurt's there, some people say let it go don't feel that way.
But the hurt says I'm not through and I know you better than they all do.
So you meditate and concentrate and try like hell to get it straight.
But the pain says, "peek-a-boo, here I am," with something new.
Then you sit around and feel the pain
'Cause what the good folks said was tried in vain.
And days pass and the years mass and the sun comes out but it don't last.
And the dogs bark and the wolves howl as they try to wake that inner child.
And the mommy dies and the baby cries
'Cause the world it knew is filled with lies.
So the trust goes and the heart explodes as the baby clings to all it knows.
But you're heading down and losing ground
Still the inner child just can't be found.
Then a marriage breaks and the earth it shakes
And you're left alone with death at stake.
But you see yourself you cannot hide and what you see is bullshit pride.
And the feelings hurt and you're insane
But you see things clear the whole damn game.
'Til the truth becomes unbearable but you can't go back so you're miserable.
And the baby cries 'cause it wants some ties and a fire burns as it purifies.
Then the Universe that has this plan turns the sky into a hand.
And she reaches down and offers it and you sense somehow that you must fit.
And your heart is raw from all it saw and you wonder what what it's for.
When from a wreck found out at sea you save one child turning destiny.
You look for others as you descend deeper and deeper the deepest you've been.
But the water's clear it is clean nothing's hidden nothing seen.
So the child arrives and the child survives and you catch the drift that it implies
When a lion comes to eat the child and you slay the beast because it's wild.
And the heart still raw doesn't close and you see things different you suppose
When another comes into your life and you both feel love you know is right.
And you feel the chase is finally done 'cause you have this sense of being one.
For what was found was parity
Beneath the ashes both could see
and the children smiled.


HAPPY RAIN

There's a woman who stole Thunder,
When he rolled across the sky.
Then she took him way down under,
Where fire keeps things dry.
When days and months
And years passed by,
And Raincloud didn't cry,
The earth and everything she grew,
All began to die.

One day when Thunder
Closed his eyes,
A goddess did appear,
Her eyes were green,
Her hair was blond,
With skin fair and clear.
Thunder asked this goddess,
Tell me, what is it?
And she answered, "Patience."
They made a quick exit.

The next day Thunder,
Again closed his eyes,
And another face appeared to him,
This time with one green eye.
No nose no mouth no hair appeared,
And not a word was spoken
With the eye between
Where brows would be,
He read this, as a token.

Now Thunder had been shown
(It was almost a year)
When Turtle taught him what to do,
And not to interfere.
So when this fall a spirit came,
With gift a Turtle too,
Thunder knew that what he heard
About Patience was all true.

Now spirits being kin to him,
Showed him many things.
Like two crows that did appear,
Early that last spring.
One was stopped in mid air,
While mosquitoes covered it,
And the same was true
For the other crow,
Though in a nest, the Crow did sit.





Thunder watched and thought,
That the crows would not survive,
With all that irritation,
Circling in two massive hives.
But then they disappeared,
And the crows, the crows had changed,
There was a transformation,
And the crows were not the same.
For they became lambs,
White as winter's snow,
And so he thought, that this must be,
The way that change must go.

Wolf, Horse, and White Bear,
All had played their part.
Opening the pathways,
That lead back to the heart.
Hawk, and Changing Moon,
Spider with its loom,
Goatfish and Lioncat
Showed wisdom in his doom.

Now the woman who stole Thunder,
When She took her love away,
Could give it to another
On that very day.
For this was in her power,
Her power to survive.
So when Lightning came between her,
She could leave with tears she'd cry.

Thunder learned many things,
While deep inside the earth.
One was how his Thunder,
Had its place and worth.
He was tested like a precious stone,
In case there was a flaw.
And when his heart was full,
And His head was clear,
He was given the
White Bear's claw.

Then Fire Fly and Twinkly Star,
Knew this summer night.
Thunder was now ready,
With faith and new insight.
Patience, the goddess,
Called upon the sea,
To bring around
Her daughter Mist,
Who Herself was just as free.
Thunder and Mist,
Then chose to both unite,
And together they made
Happy Rain,
To end 5000 years of blight.


TOGETHER

You're the reflection,
Of who I would be.
You're the reflection,
Inside of me.
I knew who you were
The moment we met,
I've carried your picture,
How could I forget.
And when we're together
The wind we will ride,
'Cause you are the wing,
My other side.

Together together I just like the sound
Together together we will be found
Together together high off the ground
Together together circling around.

Now it's just a heartbeat,
A heartbeat in time,
It's just a heartbeat,
That you will be mine.
But the beat that I have
As long as I live,
Will be beating for you,
With all it can give.

Together together I just like the sound
Together together we will be found
Together together high off the ground
Together together circling around.

When I look in the mirror
I always see two,
One who's like me
Who looks just like you.
For you are the mirror
That woke me from sleep,
You're my reflection
That my eyes can now keep.

Together together I just like the sound
Together together we will be found
Together together high off the ground
Together together circling around.

When the love you feel
for that flower
becomes the love you feel,
for another,
One becomes One.

I will look upon
the flower,
as day that comes
to wake.
And,
I will look upon
her after
with night when sleep
she takes...

And I,
the flower looked upon,
Will open wide
with day.
And
with night,
I'll sleep with dreams
for you.
Believing,
what you say.


WHEN I THINK OF YOU I SMILE

When I think of you
I smile.
The moon is full,
The tide is in, leaves are green,
Butterflies are everywhere.

When I think of you
I smile.
The pavement is hot
(Scorched from the noon sun)
And beach sand sticks inside my sandals.
The fragrance of pink roses
Carried by a lazy breeze
Also remains.

When I think of you
I smile.
For I also know
There are thorns, low tides,
Mud flats, bare trees, caterpillars,
Wool socks, laced up shoes, black ice,
And dark nights.

When I think of you I smile,
Through tears that still wait inside.
I smile, while the flower sits upon the stem
Open.


MY DARLING

I know only too well my own reflection. I saw it there in your eyes. I am glad you talked to me about my smoking...because when I don't want to kiss you, I will smoke so much it will keep even the mosquitoes away. But, when I want to kiss you, I will go into the forest, and I will call on Arianrhod, Goddess of healing and most knowledgeable of herbs. After honoring her by showing her my sincerity, I will ask her to help me find the sweetest, most succulent of all raspberries. (Those raspberries even the Buddhas cannot resist) I will stuff so many into my mouth, that the divine juices will overflow onto my lips, soaking them so much that they will soon swell. I will then make a vow not to swallow for seven days and nights. So the fragrant juice with its divine essence is completely absorbed by cheek and tongue. Each day for those seven days, I will add 20 berries until the weight of my tongue is such that to add more would make it burst. I will then wear a special hood that will not give hint to what is underneath, lest its fragrance allure (as it would) what is only intended for you my Darling. Then I will come to you, and I will take off my hood, and you will be drawn to me by this irresistible fragrant aroma. I will kiss you ever so slightly, and the juice from my lips will be enough to make you hungry for more...Then we will kiss, and that kiss will last for three days, while I feed you what I had vowed not to swallow. When finally this divine fruit is completely gone, and my cheeks and tongue are back to right size, (with you deliciously drunk) you will beg me, please Honey, go and smoke, and so I will, until our next kiss.


I'M JUST IN A SEMI SLEEP

I'm just in a semi sleep,
not really very deep.
When I'm laying next to you.
But it feels so good
to have you there,
even if you're unaware,
of the night that I am
drifting through.

And when each day,
it comes to break,
I look at you, before you wake,
and smile, knowing you
don't have a clue.
That my eyes, they are wandering,
while my heart it is pondering,
waiting for that touch,
that always brings me to.

'Cause I was just in a semi sleep,
not really very deep.
Laying next to you.
But it feels so good
to have you there,
even if you're unaware,
of the night I've been
drifting through.

And somehow I always seem to find,
the strength that comes
between that time.
To do those things,
I know I have to do.
Until the night,
once more falls our way,
and together there again we lay,
and I begin to drift because,
I'm so in love with you.


SUDDENLY IT HAPPENS

Suddenly it happens
and a fire consumes,
even roots deeply set.

Suddenly it happens
and glass shatters,
and nothing is separate
from this or that.

Suddenly it happens
and you find yourself,
without anchor or weight.

Suddenly it happens
and the universe opens
and you enter into its indigo cave.

Suddenly it happens
and nothing's the same or can
or will ever again.

Suddenly it happens
before love and desire consummate.
Because suddenly
It happens.




YOU CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC

No you can't stop the music
No matter how you try.
No you can't stop the music
No it's not about to die.
No you can't stop the music
Or the words that make it fly
No you can't stop the music
Once the music finds the sky.

Chorus
No you can't stop the music
no no no no
No you can't stop the music
no no no no
No you can't stop the music
No matter how you try.

Break

No you can't stop the music
No matter how you try.
No you can't stop the music
Once it has the wings to fly.
No you can't stop the music
It will never say goodbye.
No you can't stop the music
'Cause the music flies to high.

Chorus

No you can't stop the music
Once it has the wings to fly.
No you can't stop the music
No it's not about to die.
No you can't stop the music
Or the words that make it fly.
No you can't stop the music
No matter how you try.


Voices clearly sing

Music mountains beam.

Surprised I find its source

Echoes from the stream.
