Parachute

Here’s where I’m gonna be

There’s where you’re gonna be

Parachute

 

If you were here with me

I wouldn’t need to go home

 

Up above the air is filled with perfect sky

Clouds of pink and blue and some as pure as white

 

There’s where I’m gonna be

Will you be there for me?

Parachute

 

Here, in the center of the great unknown

Here where the seeds of life have always grown

It’s hard to be alone

 

Here’s where I’m gonna be

Here’s where I’d rather be

Here with you

 

If it could only be

I’d like for you to come home

 

Up above the air is filled with perfect sky

Clouds of pink and blue and some as pure as white

 

Here, in the center of the great unknown

Here where the seed of life in me has grown

I like to be alone

 

Come on now Parachute hold on tight and pull the shoot

come on now just parachute hold on tight and pull the shoot

come on now don’t be afraid to parachute back to me

 

Here, in the center of the great unknown

Here I am

I am

 

More

More than the moonlight on Long Lake

or her water on my skin

I love you more

than the sky as daylight breaks

from the darkness that was night

glorious night

 

the sound of waves and sand beneath my feet

As far as my eyes will ever see

 

I love you more

than the joy of Christmas morning

and the lights up on the tree

I love you more

than the colors of the night

when I close my eyes and my dreams come to life

 

In pouring rain with pools around my feet

and soft summer rain that cools the heat

I love you more

 

When winter comes

and water forms in sheets and icicles

one snowflake falling

a miracle in flight

and when the morning comes and all is white

I love you more

 

With ocean waves and sand beneath my feet

In all that I see

You are to me

I love you more

 

Everyday People  

©Sly Stone  Published by Warner Chappell

 

Some times I’m right and I can be wrong

My own beliefs are in my song

The butcher, the banker, the drummer and them

Makes no difference what group I’m in

I am Everyday People

There is a blue one who can’t accept the green one

for living with the fat one

whose trying to be the skinny one

Different strokes for different folks

And so on and so on and scoobeedoobeedoobee

Oh Sha Sha

We gotta live together

 

I am no better and neither are you

We are the same whatever we do

You love me you hate me you know me and then

You can’t figure out the bag I’m in

I am everyday people

There is a long hair that doesn’t like the short hair

for being such a rich one

that will not help the poor one

Different strokes for different folks

And so on and so on and scoobeedoobeedoobee

Oh Sha Sha

We gotta live together

 

There is a yellow one that won’t accept the black one

that won’t accept the red one that won’t accept the white one

 

Different strokes for different folks

And so on and so on and scoobeedoobeedoobee

Oh Sha Sha

 

We’ve got to live together

I am everyday people

 

 

Sarah

Sarah, Sarah, Where are you, Sarah?

 

Sarah, try and find me ‘cause I’m hiding

far away with a girl who had started to find

secrets that somebody else had to hide

I always thought that I could fly then

Pain and everything

 

Sarah

When I love I feel love, Sarah

 

Lie with the lions and the lions will lie

Their dark eyes must hide what’s beyond them

I hide with the hiders you hide with the lies

If we hide with the hiders and lies

never calling “Ally, Ally, Come In!”

we’ll never know if I can fly with pain and everything

 

Sarah, find me soon

 

Sarah, Sarah,

Where are you, Sarah?

When I love I know love, Sarah

 

 

Come to Me

©Bar Scott 2006, ASCAP 2006

 

you came to me when  you were in need

you were in need

now I have come to you

so you will see

all I am and long to be

 

and now I will come to you

and let you in

love comes in

now I will come to you

and then you will see

all my love

please come to me

 

 

Here I Am

©Bar Scott 2006, ASCAP 2006

 

Here I am on a country road

I am alone

Here I am on a bridge of stone

I am alone

 

And I can’t go home

can’t go home

can’t go home

 

Here I am on a mountain throne

I am alone

Here I am in a desert storm

 

And I can’t go home

can’t go home

can’t go home

 

Home

Where the horizon and forever meet

And love lives

And I’ll wake in the morning with you

And laugh and live and love you

 

Here I am

 

Here I am in a garden grown

I am alone

Here I am on a bridge unknown

I am alone

 

And I’m goin’ home

goin’ home

goin’ home

 

 

Blinded by the Love

©Bar Scott 2006, ASCAP 2006

 

Please, come on love

I’m in need, come on love

 

I don’t need a conversation to know what I’m feeling inside

All I need is that sensation when I see your eyes

And I need your love to bring me around

To heal my heart, to heal my heart

 

It was just another morning like any other autumn day around here

You were near and I was needy but something was clear

You moved away before we met, never met

Now I’m blinded, blinded by the love

Now I’m blinded, so blinded by the love

 

I don’t need your lovin’ to know that I heat up just fine

I convinced myself my dreamin’ would make it all right

 

But I feel

How do you love? what do you love?

How do you know if there’s something you do that is good for you or not, good for you or not?

 

How do you what do you how do you what do you how do you, how do you what do you how do you make up your mind if you feel? And I feel. And I need you comin’ around

 

‘Cause I feel

 

How do you feel?

Blinded by the love

 

 

Remember Love

© Bar Scott 2005, ASCAP  2005

 

For Mindy Jostyn, written for her Memorial - June 23, 2005, Woodstock, NY                               

 

Good-bye to garden flowers

and clouds that fill with rain

To lullabies and fairy tales and tears

 

Good-bye to sons and mothers

And kisses skin to skin

 

Good-bye to hurried hours

And planning months ahead

 

Hallelujah!

 

Candles light the evening sky

Burn with heat then melt into the night

 

I remember love

I remember music

I remember love

I remember your muse

 

Good-bye to prayers unspoken. Good-bye

 

I remember love

I remember music

I remember love

I remember your muse

 

Good-bye to songs and causes

and singing side by side

Good-bye to your sweet laughter

until we meet again

 

 

Set the World on Fire

©Bar Scott 2005, ASCAP 2005

 

From somewhere so far away the wind blew and found its way to me

and then it found you

It circled and spun you ‘round it lifted you off the ground

I knew that you could feel the wind

pull you higher over mountains to the clouds and through the valley

Your eyes lit up the sky

Set the world on fire

 

One by one and two by two we loved you and danced with you

in love with you

You held on you took my hand you turned me and spun me ‘round

‘til I was sure to feel the wind

feel the wind

Pull me higher over mountains to the clouds and through the valley

Your eyes lit up the sky

Set the world on fire

 

Pull me higher over mountains to the clouds and through the valley

Your eyes lit up the sky

Set the world on fire

 

Two little eyes light up the sky

Set the world on fire

 

Lie down and be with me forever I’ll be with you and feel the wind

 

 

Oh God

Oh God

Can I ask you this?

Oh God

Can you tell me this?

Can you hear me when I sing, Oh God?

 

Oh God

Tell me where he is

Oh God,

Please tell me where he is

I can’t hear you, can’t you sing, Oh God?

 

Oh God

I can tell you this

Oh God

I sure want to tell you this

I can hear you when I sing, Oh God

 

 

Wintertime

© Bar Scott 2006 ASCAP   

 

In the winter time snow must fall

When it’s cold outside

I need to thaw

 

Sometimes when I’m raw

I can feel my heart is breaking

But I don’t know

I don’t know

 

 

Valentine

© Bar Scott 2006 ASCAP  

 

On Valentine’s

I’ll send my love through the bluebird

I will sing to her

and she will sing for you, my love

Fly through the sky to heaven above

 

She will know you, Love

then sing her song to remind you

She will find a way

to tell you how much I love you

Three little words that mean so much

 

And when the day is over

I’ll hear her little melody

dreamin' as I fall asleep

I love you

 

Three little words that mean so much

Three little words are all I need

When it’s time to say good-bye
