Song and the lyrics….Greg Laswell….

on

Music is a combination of many elements…….words being the mother of all…….that’s what i think……a song without good lyrics fails at the very beginning to capture any kind of feeling since a good collection of words expressed, turns any tune memorable and hits the right notes very easily……..

That’s why I wish to start another series, Song and the lyrics……..where we shall read and listen to two songs per artist….and maybe do our own karaoke…:)

Today, my pick is the brilliant Mr. Greg Laswell……..

First up is Embrace Me……..

 

“Embrace Me”

Oh wind, won’t you sweep me up into the sky
So I can get a better look at this life of mine
And pick me up and twist me around
So I can see everything around me nowOh, won’t you embrace me?
Oh, won’t you embrace me?
Oh, won’t you embrace me, me?
Oh, won’t you embrace me?

Oh river, won’t you take me out into the sea
So I can get a good look back at the land that grounds me
And then a bit more further out
So I can feel alone much more than I have these days

Oh, then won’t you embrace me?
Oh, won’t you embrace me?
Oh, won’t you embrace me?
Won’t you embrace me?

I figure there’s time later on to move along
From this there is time enough of it for right or wrong
I figure there’s time so go easy on me
And let me stay here a while, stay here awhile

Oh wind, won’t you take me up to the sky
I can get a good look down at this life of mine
River, won’t you take me out into the sea
I can get a good look back at the land that grounds me
The land that grounds me, land that grounds me, me
Land that grounds me, me

Next song is Comes and Goes[in Waves]………

“Comes And Goes (In Waves)”

This one’s for the lonely, the one’s that seek and find
Only to be let down time after time
This one’s for the torn down, the experts at the fall
Come on friends, get up now, you’re not alone at allOh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh

And this part was for her
And this part was for her
This part was for her
Does she remember?

It comes and goes in waves

This one’s for the faithless, the ones that are surprised
They’re only where they are now regardless of their fight
This one’s for believing if only for it’s sake
Come on friends get up now love is to be made

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh

And this part was for her
And this part was for her
This part was for her
Does she remember?

It comes and goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
It comes in goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
Why I, why I try

This is for the ones who stand
For the ones who try again
For the ones who need a hand
For the ones who think they can

It comes and goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
It comes and goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
Why I, why, why I try

Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
