The Christmas Guest

It happened one day near December's end,
Two neighbors called on an old friend.
And they found his shop so meager and lean
Made gay with thousand bows of green
And Conrad was sitting with face a-shine
When he suddenly stopped as he stitched a twine
And he said 'Old friends, at dawn today,
When the cock was crowing the night away
The Lord appeared in a dream to me
And said 'I'm coming your guest to be.'
So I've been busy with feet astir
Strewing my shop with branches of fern.
The table is spread and the kettle is shined.
And over the rafters the holly is twined.
Now I'll wait for my Lord to appear
And listen closely so I will hear
His step as He nears my humble place.
And I'll open the door and look on His face.
So his friends went home and left Conrad alone
For this was the happiest day he had known,
For long since, his family had passed away
And Conrad had spent many a sad Christmas Day.
But he knew with the Lord as his Christmas Guest
This Christmas would be the dearest and best.
So he listened with only joy in his heart
And with every sound he would rise with a start
And look for the Lord to be at his door.
Like the vision he had had a few hours before.
So he ran to the window after hearing a sound
But all he could see on the snow covered ground
Was a shabby beggar whose shoes were torn
And all of his clothes were ragged and worn.
But Conrad was touched and he went to the door
And he said, 'You know, your feet must be frozen and sore.
I have some shoes in my shop for you
And a coat that will keep you warmer too.'
So with grateful heart the man went away
But Conrad noticed the time of day
And wondered what made the Lord so late
And how much longer he'd have to wait.
When he heard a knock, he ran to the door
But it was only a stranger once more.
A bent old lady with a shawl of black
With a bundle of kindling piled on her back.
She asked for only a place to rest
But that was reserved for Conrad's Great Guest.
But her voice seemed to plead 'Don't send me away,
Let me rest for awhile on Christmas Day',
So Conrad brewed her a steaming cup
And told her to sit at the table and sup.
But after she left he was filled with dismay
For he saw that the hours were slipping away
And the Lord hadn't come as he said he would.
Then Conrad felt sure he had misunderstood.
When out of the stillness he heard a cry
'Please help me and tell me where am I?'
So again he opened his friendly door
And stood disappointed as twice before.
It was only a child who'd wandered away
And was lost from her family on Christmas Day.
Again Conrad's heart was heavy and sad
But he knew he should make the little girl glad.
So he called her in and he wiped her tears
And quieted all her childish fears.
Then he led her back to her home once more
But as he entered his own darkened door
He knew the Lord was not coming today.
For the hours of Christmas had passed away
So he went to his room and knelt down to pray
And he said 'Dear Lord, why did you delay?
What kept you from coming to call on me?
For I wanted so much your face to see.'
When soft in the silence a voice he heard.
'Lift up your head for I kept my word.
Three times my shadow crossed your floor
And three times I came to your lonely door.
I was the beggar with bruised, cold feet
And I was the woman you gave something to eat.
I was the child on the homeless street.
Three times I knocked, and three times I came in.
And each time I found the warmth of a friend.
Of all the gifts, love is the best.
And I was honored to be your Christmas Guest.

I Crave You

If they turned you to gold, I'd ask them for pieces
And in my mouth deep I'd cover my teeth as
My gold smile, asked them for water
from the fountains you bathed in I'd drown in it longer
 
Thirst will be quenched, They'll turn you to bread
So stick to my bones and go to my head
 
I'll carry you home, Won't leave you alone
Devour you whole, Your skin is my soul
 
I Crave You My Lover, I...
Waited, wanted, suffered
I Crave You My Love
Desire has won once again
 
Tied down so tightly, I'm fighting almighty
Your light beams so brightly, It blinds me just slightly
If I could just get a taste, It would all go away
I can't slow down, it keeps me awake
 
If I could just get a taste, I'd make my escape
As hard as I try, Your spell just won't break
 
I'll carry you home, Won't leave you alone
Devour you whole, Your skin is my soul
 
I Crave You My Lover, I...
Waited, wanted, suffered
I Crave You My Love
Desire has won once again
 

Fiddler John (Live)

John, John, play us another tune
John, John, play one more
John, John, play us another one
John, John, play one more
 
Oh, Fiddler John they say he's crazy
He knows better but he won't say
Every day you can see him a-sitting there
Dear old John just fiddles away
 
John, John, play us another tune
John, John, play one more
John, John, play us another one
John, John, play one more
 
He won't listen to your questions
He'll just answer yes or no
But if you take the time to listen
He'll play you a tune before you go
 
John, John, play us another tune
John, John, play one more
John, John, play us another one
John, John, play one more
 
Some tell of when old John was a soldier
He was gone for many a year
He came back with a fiddle in his haversack
Broken memories cost him dear
 
John, John, play us another tune
John, John, play one more
John, John, play us another one
John, John, play one more
 
Saturday nights then John is welcome
Brandy, wine are all in store
When the dawn is fast approaching
Still they ask for just one more
 
John, John, play us another tune
John, John, play one more
John, John, play us another one
John, John, play one more
 
Oh, Fiddler John they say he's crazy
He knows better but he won't say
Every day you can see him a-sitting there
Dear old John just fiddles away
 
John, John, play us another tune
John, John, play one more
John, John, play us another one
John, John, play one more
 

Repetentă la dragoste

Tu inima dezacordată
Ai vrea să uiți ce-a fost odată
Când de iubire ai fost purtată
Și acum tu de ea ești vinovată
 
În noaptea în care ai plecat
Și sufletul m-a întrebat
De ce amintirile din patul meu
Întreabă de tine mereu
 
Indiferent, răni pe suflet mi-ai pictat
Și m-ai lăsat
 
Repetentă la dragoste
De pe cer mi-ai luat și stelele
Cu tine lecția e învățată
Ai luat absența nemotivată
 
Repetentă și la iubire
Știu că o să plec dar fără tine
Să iubești tu nu știi ce înseamnă
Adio, nu ne mai vedem la toamnă
 
De ce lumea e plină de cuvinte
Încă-mi răsună vocea ta în minte
Degeaba tu dai vina pe destin
Când noi deja aveam paharul plin
 
Repetentă și încă doare
Nu mai există data viitoare
De ce mai vii să bați la ușa mea
Demult nu-ți mai răspunde inima
 
Indiferent, răni pe suflet mi-ai pictat
Și m-ai lăsat
 
Repetentă la dragoste
De pe cer mi-ai luat și stelele
Cu tine lecția e învățată
Ai luat absența nemotivată
 
Repetentă și la iubire
Știu că o să plec dar fără tine
Să iubești tu nu știi ce înseamnă
Adio, nu ne mai vedem la toamnă
 
Ai plecat fără niciun regret
Azi cânt cu tristețea în duet
Atunci când la iubire nu-ți faci temele
Pe obraz, pe obraz curg lacrimile
 
Repetentă, așa e în dragoste
Câteodată se frâng suflete
Atunci când la iubire nu-ți faci temele
Pe obraz, pe obraz curg lacrimile
 
Repetentă la dragoste
De pe cer mi-ai luat și stelele
Cu tine lecția e învățată
Ai luat absența nemotivată
 
Repetentă și la iubire
Știu că o să plec dar fără tine
Să iubești tu nu știi ce înseamnă
Adio, nu ne mai vedem la toamnă
 

The Courage To Forgive

(Ten... years... by... since... gone... I... hate... what...)
(Did... to my life... to my soul... father, why... you, father)
 
Ten years gone by since you've gone and I still hate what you did to my life to my soul. Father, why? Why...
 
Ten years you wasted to shape your own son, to grow the perfect warrior
Ten stones on my back are crushing my bones, they're bending my spine
I'll get over it: I'll destroy my hate
 
Hard is the path when the memory makes you grieve
Painful, the memories are painful like a wound
Leave the past behind, find the courage to forgive
Painful, the memories are painful.
It's your duty, the contract says, 'You have to forgive.'
 
(Shades... dark... war... shield... sword... years... age... child...)
(Friends... and my hands... made to play... father, why... you, father)
 
Shadows of the war, a shield, a sword: despite my young age they were my close friends
Despite my hands were made to play, I learned how to kill... but why?
 
Life is a labyrinth of chances and leaps of faith, an endless dreaming
Maybe I wouldn't become brave like you, as strong as you were
I'll try to forget: I'll destroy my hate
 
Hard is the path when the memory makes you grieve
Painful, the memories are painful like a wound
Leave the past behind, find the courage to forgive
Painful, the memories are painful.
It's your duty, the contract says, 'You have to forgive.'
 
All the stars can't ignite the dark
I will burn my anger just to see the light, to rise again
 
Hard is the path when the memory makes you grieve
Painful, the memories are painful like a wound
Leave the past behind, find the courage to forgive
Painful, the memories are painful.
It's your duty, the contract says, 'You have to forgive.'
