Can You See Where The Hills Sleep

Can you see where the hills sleep
Undisturbed by your concerns
Gentle and rolling
Forever changing in their turn

And you my friend so tense
Angry and frustrated in your life
Look at the hills and weep
With the eyes that blind you twice

And can you feel the breeze
Soft as any lovers touch
But invisible to all outside
And to you who care to much

Oh can you hear the ocean
Weeping for her lost brothers
Never ending always moving
Are you moved by any other?

Softly Falls The Dust

Softly falls the dust again
And I know where I must go
It's happened all those times before
In a place I used to know

I made you say a promise
That I knew you'd never keep
But if promises are made to last
They'll last a lonely week

I made you swear to love me
But its true you never could
You said it was my sacred oath
That I never understood

So you fashioned me a burden
That I carry to this day
Ah but burdens are for bearing
And its bearing me away

My nights and days are incomplete
So where's the big surprise
I find the stranger become sleep
For all I see is just her eyes

You have to keep an eye on these two

Martha Said

Martha said that I could Love her
It was spoken from the heart
And in that misty moment
I was sure this was the start

We walked the road to Heaven
Where I kissed her stocking feet
Prey don't tarry there my love
For my lips they are so sweet

But my love I am a sinner
Yes but sinner come inside
And fall into my soft embrace
for my heart is open wide

So I spent the night in heaven
And I cherished her so true
Then when at last I said farewell
I whispered Martha I love you

Went camping for the first time in many years. Unfortunately the ground was to hard and it was absolutely freezing, so we didn't sleep very well.
But I did manage to take this picture at 5am. Nice sky.

If your wondering where this is, it's Pitlochry, Perthshire, Scotland

Long Night Of Angst

There’s an object of hope and despair
And it’s laughing at me from the table
But I'll fight to ignore it somehow
It’s that thought that’s keeping me stable

And I think that I know where you’ve been
But my cruel heart said he knows better
It’s a battle of wills he can win
Like the battle when you lost your sweater

And this long night of angst breaks me down
Like you broke me to your way of thinking
But this soul keeps losing ground
And it’s sinking and sinking and sinking

Me and my best friend

Buddha Days

Come over here and look outside my window
It’s just a metaphor for lists to follow
But we’re safe and sound inside my friend
Far away from all that’s dipped in sorrow

And if you ask me about my life that’s been
And all the Buddha days that came to pass
Then I’ll point outside just one more time
And whisper that my Buddha days wont last

Do you think it’s time to make our plans?
And step outside that misting glass
But if you and I where not so blind
Then we would see what’s coming fast

And now we look to the far horizon
And all those ships way out at sea
I think there sailing here to take us
But will our sailing make us free

I want to hold your hand forever friend
It makes me feel warm and secure
But if my Buddha days are finally over
Then was my faith so much a cure
