Sonja Fromerova

Voice of velvet, peach fuzz clover,
This is Sonja Fromerova.
From her voice alone there comes a vision:
Flowing figures soft and gentle.
Still there is no indecision.
Not a child who runs for cover
Is this Sonja Fromerova.
 
Will she prove to be this vision
When the eyes make their decision?
Does she flow like some sweet flower
Bent by breeze and dew or shower?
Firm but gentle, sure but knowing,
Sure, mature, but ever growing,
Confidence still spilling over
From this Sonja Fromerova.
 
Will the dream I dream be over
At the sight of Fromerova?
Or will sight increase the image
Till all doubt within me simmers?
Then before me is this woman,
Ever stimulating to men.
Senses form a fibrous cover
Through which glides this Fromerova.
 

Cornflower Blue

Cornflower blue, bloomin' in the mornin' sun
Tiny flowers that grew, from when our love had just begun
Long ago we planted, each dry and dusty row
How long has it taken, for the seeds of love to grow?
Cornflower blue...
 
Cornflower blue, like the faded shirt you wore
Standing in the shadows, when I opened up the door
 
The smile in your eyes, when you said hello
Held me so tenderly, and you would not let me go
Cornflower blue...
 
Cornflower blue, deeper than the evenin' sky
Peaceful as a river, bluer than goodbye
Blue like a diamond, when the light shines true
If love came in colors, then I'd choose this one for you
Cornflower blue...
Cornflower blue...
 

Across the Great Divide

I've been walkin' in my sleep
Countin' troubles 'stead of countin' sheep
Where the years went I can't say;
I just turned around and they've gone away
 
I've been siftin' through the layers
Of dusty books and faded papers
They tell a story I used to know
And it was one that happened so long ago
 
It's gone away in yesterday
Now I find myself on the mountainside
Where the rivers change direction
Across the Great Divide
 
Now, I heard the owl callin'
Softly as the night was fallin'
With a question, and I replied
But he's gone across the borderline
 
He's gone away in yesterday
Now I find myself on the mountainside
Where the rivers change direction
Across the Great Divide
 
The finest hour that I have seen
Is the one that comes between
The edge of night and the break of day
It's when the darkness rolls away
 
It's gone away in yesterday
Now I find myself on the mountainside
Where the rivers change direction
Across the Great Divide
 
It's gone away in yesterday
Now I find myself on the mountainside
Where the rivers change direction
Across the Great Divide
Where the rivers change direction
Across the Great Divide
 

Poet's Heart

I wrote to you somewhere in South Australia
A poet's heart in the eye of a hurricane
I struggle with finding words to sing these days I said
As if my thoughts are waiting in the wings
For the stage to clear
 
And you in your elegance and humor fill the room
Your love and your concern
Your anger at the injustice of man's narrowness and fear
I thank you for being here.
 
You wrote of love from the coast of Mendocino
A poet's heart crying a fighter's tears
The children of your body spread out across this earth
Like messages written across time,
Measuring the years.
 
And you in your elegance and humor fill the room
Your love and your concern
Your anger at the injustice of man's narrowness and fear
I thank you for being here.
 
I heard your songs reach out to California
A poet's heart locked in the Coeur d'Alene
Of the old men and the booze singing out the truth in lives
Of forgiveness and loyalties to friends,
Constant as the endless railroad ties
 
And you in your elegance and humor fill the room
Your love and your concern
Your anger at the injustice of man's narrowness and fear
I thank you for being here.
 
So here we are joined finally by our words
All poet's hearts close though far apart
I remember how you said that language is a knife
That spreads what we feel across the dry crust
Of someone's heart.
 
And you in your elegance and humor fill the room
Your love and your concern
Your anger at the injustice of man's narrowness and fear
I thank you for being here.
 

Unfinished Life

It's an unfinished life that I find lies before me
An open-ended dream and I don't want to wake
I've crossed so many rivers in search of crystal fountains
I've found the truest paths always lead through mountains
I've seen water on the sky and fire burning on the lake
 
You said to me
'I cannot make you happy like a wounded bird
You must find the strength to fly
Time can paint the treetops with colors of the rainbow
But you cannot find the end, no matter how you try'
 
It's a journey with my soul that I am taking
One that only goes form the cradle to the grave
Going 'round in circles like painted dancing horses
Up and down we ride on the wooden courses
And light from a lover's eyes is all that I can save
 
You said to me
'I cannot make you happy like a wounded bird
You must find the strength to fly
Time can paint the treetops with colors of the rainbow
But you cannot find the end, no matter how you try'
 
So I'll take the day and run out across the open fields
Where the grass grows high and the shadows fall
Where my eyes can see all the colors in the air
So quiet that the wind whistles in my hair
And takes the rising dust and carries it away
 
You said to me
'I cannot make you happy like a wounded bird
You must find the strength to fly
Time can paint the treetops with colors of the rainbow
But you cannot find the end, no matter how you try'
 

Love Still Remains

I went home
To a place I swore I'd never see again
Lord, it's different now
There's hardly anything that hasn't changed
And the friends I've known
Have grown and moved away
But the love I felt for you
Still remains
And it remains, it blows down the dusty streets
And rides the falling rain
And rolls like a tumbleweed out on the open range
The love I felt for you still remains
 
I walked down
Past the buildings standing empty and unused
Where you asked me one more time
If I'd stay and then you cried when I refused
That was long ago
I moved away and I changed my name
But the love I felt for you
Still remains
It remains, it blows down the dusty streets
And rides the falling rain
And rolls like a tumbleweed out on the open range
The love I felt for you still remains
 
I could say
That I always thought you'd be there when I came
But you wanted more
And I could say the same
Now I'm leaving like the whistel
On a lonesome boxcar train
But the love I felt for you
Still remains
It remains, it blows down the dusty streets
And rides the falling rain
And rolls like a tumbleweed out on the open range
The love I felt for you still remains
The love I felt for you still remains
 

Carolina Pines

Just an old house with the roof falling in
Standing at the edge of the field
Watching the crops grow as it's always done before
Nobody lives here any more.
 
[chorus:]
The sun's going down in the Carolina pines
I'm a long way from home and I miss that love of mine
Broken windows, empty doors, nobody lives here any more.
 
Old memories come whistling like the wind
Through the walls and the cracked window panes
And the grass is growing high around the kitchen door
Nobody lives here any more.
 
[chorus]
 
Once there were children and a few hired hands
A hard-working woman and a bone-tired man
Now that old sun steals across a dusty floor
Nobody lives here any more.
 
[chorus]
 

Medicine Wheel

When the morning breaks and the sunlight warms my soul
In the East the Eagle flies, and the Red Tail proudly soars
I'm on my way to the place of the spirit one
Grandfather hear me now, I am on fire
Let the sundance guide my feet to your desire
Show me visions for my eyes
And words like gold that shimmer in the sun
 
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah
 
When the sun goes down and it grows too dark to see
I look within to the Shaman's mysteries
I'm on my way to die and live again
Grandmother Earth I cry, give me rest
I take my place with the woman in the West
Show me the Raven and the Bear
The way of herbs and the black obsidian
 
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah
 
Turn toward the South, like the water I will run
In innocence and trust the Moonchild's song is sung
I'm on my way to the place of the sacred plants
My emotions and my will at their command
Where the Turtle's voice is heard upon the land
The wise Coyote prowls
The Rattlesnake will call me to the dance
 
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah
 
In the deepest night the stars watch over me
Old Woman of the North my mind seeks clarity
I'm on my way to the place of the Northern winds
Let the Thunder and the Lightning carry me
Lay my thoughts to rest and send me into sleep
With the Hawk and the Buffalo
My dreams white crystal magic medicine
 
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah
 
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah...
 

Green Eyes

Every night we light the candle
That stands beside our bed
But sometimes the flame's too much to handle
That's what you said, that's what you said
You should know
 
Because you built a fire in me and you made it burn
You followed me, watching every move
Matching every turn
 
Your green eyes they don't miss a thing
They hold me like the sun going down
Warm me like a fire in the night
Without a sound
 
You were waiting till I heard
Just as patient as that lovelight in your eyes
You never threw away a word
Or ever talked in a disguise
I ought to know
 
You were a beacon to a sailor lost at sea
I saw it in your eyes when you looked at me
So openly
 
Your green eyes they don't miss a thing
They hold me like the sun going down
Warm me like a fire in the night
Without a sound
 
The first time I ever saw your laughter
Break loose inside and tumble out to me
My heart knew it had found what it was after
And it came so easily
We should know
 
After all the years of the hard and lonely times
Now our days go by like best friends' story lines
Yours and mine
 
Your green eyes they don't miss a thing
They hold me like the sun going down
And warm me like a fire in the night
Without a sound
 

Close to You

I like the way you smile
It reminds me of a happy child
It makes me feel a little less alone
I miss you when you're gone
The hours they stretch on and on
Like water dripping slowly on a stone
 
You're such a mystery
The way you look at me
With that light that shines from some place I can't go
Did it take you by surprise
When you realized
That you loved me though you've never told me so?
 
You know I wanna say
So many things to you today
But you've got me feeling like I'm flying blind
I think if you were here
The words would ring crystal clear
From this heart that's learning how to speak its mind
 
You fight for truth with love
You're an iron hand in a velvet glove
It's the kind of strength that makes a gentle man
But I'm a child of the wind
I've been blown away but I'm back again
I just don't know if you really understand
 
Sunlight moves across the floor
There's a soft breeze through the open door
A sleepy cat laying on the windowsill
On this lazy afternoon
Like honey on a silver spoon
The memory of your smile is with me still
 
Don't tell me that it's wrong
To say 'I love you' with a song
When the words won't come, I've seen you do it, too
This road winds along
One day we'll be gone
But I'll have this song to bring me close to you
I'll have this song to bring me close to you
