What gates dare guarantee defend against
A sight that well could launch a thousand ships?
Brody Blue Jan 9
I wandered by the wayside
till I wore out my traveling shoes.
I stopped and smelled the roses,
it seemed to be that time was mine to lose.
But when the thorns drew blood,
I saw how little time I had to choose
To pluck the rose, or bleed out with
The rosebud blues
A song about everything you hate

Overrunning!
Where once before
When somebody coming
Was someone worth loving
I left in vain
Not but so to keep
Wanting

Overrunning!
Forevermore
For you shall I
Be who I am
Becoming

Overrunning!
Wherein once more
When somebody coming
Was someone worth wanting
I fled in fear
So as not to lose
Loving

Overrunning!
Forevermore
For you shall I
Be who I am
Becoming

If I know one thing
It's not for nothing
For someone to speak
When one must say
Something

So I'll say one thing
Must I say something
Till I knew you
My love I knew
Nothing

Overrunning!
Forevermore
For you shall I
Be who I am
Becoming

If I know one thing,
It's not for nothing
For someone to speak
When one must say
Something.

So I'll say one thing,
Must I say something:
Till I knew you,
My love, I knew
Nothing.

If we were to conceive
What is as what's received —
That is as is accept
What is by its effect —
And if it be that love
Of all is far above,
Made so by just decree,
Then it must be:

To sail when tempests
Bite your bark at sea:
To love be true
And you true
Love will
Free

To keep from drinking
Life down to the lees:
To love be true
And you true
Love will
Free

To calm the stormy deep
And weary soul to sleep:
Part from what's past.
To make the darkness seem
A long departed dream:
Put first what lasts.

But to undo that debt
No soul can flee:
To love be true
And you true
Love will
Free

To love be true,
To love be true,
To love be true
And you true
Love will
Free
A song for poverty and plenty

In stillness silence roars and love sets fire
Darkness dead alight upon light's pyre.

Though it seems I won't deny
All that live in love never die:
Love can't free a heart that sings
Unwillingly

Though it's true true love transforms
Each to its most perfect form:
Love can't free a heart that sings
Unwillingly

Love by time is made no fool —
Time in truth by love is ruled —
But what's true love can't conceal,
Thus in time does truth reveal:
Love can't free a heart that sings
Unwillingly

Though maybe love from the start
Put this song here in my heart:
Love can't free a heart that sings
Unwillingly
