Chasing the Wind

Remember when we chased down the wind On that summer's eve when the sun had gone dim And the night was upon us as the dark came creeping in Do you remember?
How we dreamed of warm Septembers When the crickets kept us company Singing lonely songs of lonely souls Not worth remembering Do you remember sitting side by side with me Catching our breath chasing the wind
Those were the days when we let our spirits free Wild and uncontrollable, we'd play tag with the sea And sunsets on the sand every day just like a dream Do you remember?
We believed in magic We believed in fairy tales Believed in something that we couldn't see Chasing at our tails Something just around the corner Waiting out of sight We believed that things would never changes We'd always have these summer nights
Remember when we met again after so much time It felt so strange to smile at you, feel your hand in mine And we tried to tell our stories, every second of our lives Do you remember?
How we dreamed of warm Septembers When the cr…

Blood Iron

Why are you bending down, low to the ground
Trying hard to dig iron from the earth
Why are you kneeling, head to the ground
Fingers bleeding into the earth

Why are you weary, why don't you speak
You haven't lungs to catch your breath
Why are you working, why don't you speak
Soon you'll have bled yourself to death

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Out in the sun, and no tears to cry
No one to call on, no one to blame
Running, seeking your own name

No place to call home
You never know, you never know
Too much iron to grow
Too much blood blood to flow
You never know, you never know
No place to call home

No rest for your bones
You never know, you never know
Too much iron to grow
Too much blood to flow
You never know, you never know
No rest for your bones
No place to call home

Good Thoughts (in easy-to-remember form)

Passion doesn't just belong in the heart, it also belongs in the hands.
-- it's good to have a passion, but it doesn't mean too much if you don't do anything with it.

Don't let your dreams escape.
-- God gave you the ability to dream, so use it.

Don't confuse dreams with goals. Goals are necessities; dreams are accessories.
-- You need to have realistic goals to carry out in the real world, but that doesn't mean you can't bring along your pretty, red balloon.

If you don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it.
-- pretty self-explanatory.

Your ability to see beauty never changes. It's up to you whether to look for it or not.
-- the beauty God has bestowed upon this world doesn't go away. If you think there's no beauty, you've probably been walking around with your eyes shut.

When everything around you is burning, be the rain.
-- Chaos doesn't clean itself up. The Enemy would love it if we let entropy take thi…

Ruth Notes

Sacrifice shows loveHumility brings honorAs self-led life can prove disastrousBitterness causes complacencyPerseverance is noticeableDetermination to follow God brings about his blessings (on you)To appear rightly before man is to appear rightly before GodThe redeemed are blessedChildren are blessingsPraise God for the good since you didn't make it happenThere's no such thing as an outsider to God; we're all welcome to shelter under his wingsSelfless love is the first step toward any right relationshipWe are witnesses/need to be witnesses to our own redemptionDon't run after the young, pretty one with their head in the clouds; wait for the man of God's choosingWe get to marry our redeemer too!God uses the small, untalented and broken people to give him glory

Do What We Do

I can't do all those amazing things you can do,
but that's okay because it's what you can do.
And you do it and there's just a little more light,
a little more color in a lightened up night.
I'll do my own thing because that's what I do,
because you're already doing what's best done by you.
And when we are doing the stuff we do best,
we'll have done our part and the colors do the rest.
The world is filling up with beauty and art,
and all because we did our own things from our hearts.

The Dark

Give me the time to tell you all the things I want to say Give me the time to spell you and to take you far away After the moon has risen and the blue is fading fast And the sky is so dark and the day is so long past
In the moment, when the evening ends And all the secrets are floating round our heads When the sunlight fades and all is coated in grey There I'll say
That your smile is like a bolt of lightning That has struck my heart in way no one can replace You are the thunderstorm of feelings Creeping down my spine, keeping me awake
And that your hands are open and sure That your grip is soft but strong and rough And tells me you aren't going anywhere soon You're staying here, where the dark is enough
Give me the time to tell you all the things I want to do Give me the time to spell you and carry you on through After the moon has risen and the blue is fading fast And the sky is so dark and day is so long past
In the moment, after the sun goes down All our secrets cannot be weighed down When …

Empty Hands

I've been sitting here on my hands 'Cause when I let them out They do such destructive things I've keeping all my cards close 'Cause when I put them down They bring bad luck and tempting flings
And I'm holding myself at bay 'Cause my heart likes to run away With anything, or anyone that sways it It's hard enough to look through glass To see beauty and bounty and pass Pass it all up for nothing and empty hands
I'm sitting on broken bones I'm walking on broken glass I'm holding my screams inside I'm wishing love would come at last I'm throwing silent tantrums I'm burning up all my plans I'm sitting here with broken bones And beat up empty hands
I've been walking down memory's lane 'Cause when it's hurting I can pass through the pain I've been watching my life go by 'Cause when I look up too far I'm prompted by false hope to cry
And I'm trying hard just to run In a new and fresh direction Towards some light at the end of tunnel A…

The Dearest Thing

Something is blowing down from the eastern sky Up where the sun is awaking and spilling light Arriving on breezes that tickle our cheeks Making butterflies flutter just out of our reach
And we're sailing on the ever blue sky On a tuft of cloud beneath the sunshine And holding your hand is dearest thing I've ever done, or ever seen
Something is whispering out from the woods A shiver and sliver of something too good To be seen with mortal eyes, so we can't find But a piece of it, and it's in your eyes
And we're skipping along on old mossy trails Where up through the dirt the snowdrop prevail And holding your hand is the dearest thing I've ever done, or ever seen
Something come shooting out of the sea It's quick and it's silver like a beautiful ring That hums on my finger, its own little song The song of together, and the sea sing along
And we're swimming in an ocean of ink All your letters got wet but I know how you think And holding your hand is the dearest thing I've …

Nothing less than a star intro

When nothing less than a star Can break the dark before your eyes Make the choice to give your heart And send it up to light the skies
Tapi was born with silver hair.
People thought it was strange, but Miran loved it. It was as if a star had come down and touched his head with starlight, so that he shone all the time. She called him her "little star," and he followed her wherever she went, so that she was never in the dark.
Miran felt that she didn't need anything else as long as she had her little star and Tapi was certain he didn't need anything else because he would always have Miran. The two of them were stuck together with so much love that some of Tapi's brightness rubbed off on his sister and some of her stubbornness rubbed off on him, so that except for the silver hair, and the height difference, it was hard to tell the two apart.
And Miran wouldn't have it any other way.
Aside from each other, they also had their Gran. She had silver hair too, but from age…

College Essays #1 - Philosophy

How Philosophy Affects Wise Living Humans are born asking questions. From the moment we open our eyes we are discovering truths about the world around us. The more we learn, the more we question. “Why am I here? What does life mean? How can I know things?” By asking these questions and seeking for answers, the right answers, we are delving into the realm of philosophy. Philosophy is the search for how to apply right knowledge to life in order to better one’s state of being. The actual application of right knowledge is wisdom. Wisdom is the most necessary element within philosophy’s four branches: epistemology, metaphysics, ethics and teleology. In this paper I will explore why and how wisdom is so necessary to each of these branches and how being wise creates a better way of living. When approaching philosophy, it’s important to understand how we know things. Epistemology is the study of knowing; a subject that philosophers have been discussing and writing about for centuries. Three que…

Dead to You

You talk about me like I'm dead How is that fair? It's not
It seems I was in over my head 'Cause you weren't fair You weren't
And when I think about the things you said I hate you I do
'Cause all you wanted was me in bed With you But didn't want to
So you talk about like me I’m dead And I guess I’m dead to you It's not like it's the end of the world Been doing fine, without you But you just keep on talking me about me Like you really don't how to let go But since I am dead to you Even if you call, I'll never show
I started talking like you are dead Is it fair? I think it is
Since you talked about me like I was dead It wasn't fair Like I don't exist
When I think about the things you said To me After a drink
I think that you look good in bed Crying Without me
So you talk about me like I’m dead And I guess I'm dead to you It's not like it's the end of the world Been doing fine, without you And you keep on talking about me Like you really don't know how to l…

Excerpt from "When Nothing But A Star"

"Gran! Is this where you went?"
"Gran, how could you leave us?"
"Miran, don't you see? She was the lonely star that led the way."
Miran was confused, but as she looked at the star with her Gran's face, she started to understand. "This is like the rhyme, isn't it? You gave your heart to break up the darkness."
"Nothing less than a star…" Gran's voice twinkled in her ears.
Tapi's face was scrunched up as he concentrated on some serious thought. "So then, if we give our hearts, will we become stars and break up the dark?"
Gran seemed to nod, if a star could nod.
Miran watched Tapi stare at the star globes, so, so many emotions swirling through her. If they gave their hearts, then they would also become stars? "Isn't it lonely, being a star? Is it enough?"
Gran looked at her, ever so gently and once again her star voice lilted, "Is it enough to be a light in the darkness? Oh child, there is no lone…

Take Me As I Am

Take me as I am It's all I'll ever be I couldn't fight for anyone So why should you fight for me
But if you do, if you choose To stay here by my side All my fears, all my doubts I've been living with shut eyes So if you stayed, if you would Maybe I could learn to try If you want me, if you do Maybe I'll forget to lie
So take me as I am But not that I can't change I would never fault you It's I who is to blame
But if you stay, if you do If you want to be with me All my hopes, all my wants You'd fulfill my needs If you work, if I work To make this all work out It could be, like a dream Together, let's find out
If you take me as I am It's not all who I'll be I still don't know how to fight But I've got you to fight for me
So please choose, please do To stay here by my side All my fears, all my doubts They'll become the lies If you stay, if you would I promise I will try If you want me, if you do I'll open up my eyes

So Deep

Take me down, down, down To where you are I don't mind the dirt Or seeing your scars Take me down, down, down So deep I don't mind a little swimming If it helps you sleep
And I'll stay your side I'll chase away all the bad dreams I'll be here every night For as long you need
I'll hold on to you Even if you me let go I'll keep your place at the table I'll wear your coat I'll hold on to you Even as you fall I'll chase away the nightmares I'll be your walls
And I'll rock you to sleep Until you're so deep, deep under You can't hear a thing And your mind, it can't wander You can't hear me sing 'Cause you're deep So, so deep
Take me down, down, down To where you're hiding I'll tackle all the giants So that you can keep shining Take me down, down, down So deep I don't mind a little digging If I can see you finally sleeping
I'll hold on to you Even if you let me go I'll keep your place at the table I'll wear your coat I'll hold on t…

Outlaw

I'll take you inside out and upside down I'll hold your head up and then let you down I'll run you up the walls and you'll be screaming Let me out of here You'll think you're going mad with fear If you have any sense of dignity I'll take it all away and mercilessly I'll shake you down and you will never Dare to come around Again
I'll bring the storm and I'll bring thunder I'll make it rain till the flood pulls you under I'll fill your insides with nonsensical terror Until you're screaming Let me out of here You'll think you're going mad with fear If you have any sense of dignity I'll take it all away and mercilessly I'll shake you down and you will never Dare to come around Again
My thirst never satisfied Nothing you can say will hurt my pride I am made of steel and built of stone You'll never push me from my throne If you think you're fire I am ice Don't fool yourself into being nice And think that that will save from my claws I'…

Make Me Cry

It does no good to have a head full of thoughts If you don't know what they are And they're all lost and stuffed in drawers And they bleed down into your heart Then give you the strangest aches And it's so frustrating to hurt And not know why you're in pain
So if you made me cry, I wouldn't be angry I'd halfway laugh and say thanks I can feel them running through me now All those restless thoughts All those emotions that were lost
And if I got to cry, I'd be so happy To feel again and not feel angry pain To feel alive and hate every breath To walk on two feet and not on broken hands If you made me cry
But you won't make me cry 'Cause that's mean and it hurts you And that's not what I want I want to see you smiling
So I'll keep my mouth shut And keep my thoughts lost I'll find a way to find them To make them all bleed out I'll do it without burdening you I'll never make a sound
So if you see me cry Don't try to make it st…
