Love Kittens quartet sings "Sweet Adeline"

Here are the Lyrics (I love this song):

(Richard Gerard)

In the evening as I sit alone a-dreaming
Of days gone by, love, to me so dear,
There's a picture that in fancy oft' appearing,
Brings back the time, love, when you were near.
It is then I wonder where you are, my darling,
And if your heart to me is still the same.
For the sighing wind and nightingale a-singing
Are breathing only your own sweet name.

Sweet Adeline, (My Adeline,)
My Adeline, (My Adeline,)
At night, dear heart, (At night, dear heart,)
For you I pine. (For you I pine.)
In all my dreams, (In all my dreams,)
Your fair face beams. (Your fair face beams.)
You're the flower of my heart,
Sweet Adeline. (My Adeline.)

The Color of Trust

Give me your Trust, said the Aes Sedai, 
On my shoulders I support the sky; 
Trust me to know and to do what is best 
And I will take care of the rest. 

But Trust is the color of a dark seed growing. 
Trust is the color of a hearts blood flowing. 
Trust is the color of a Souls last breath. 
Trust is the color of Death.

Give me your trust said the queen on her throne, 
For I must bear the burden all alone; 
Trust me to lead and to judge and to rule 
And no man will think you a fool. 

But trust is the sound of a grave dogs bark. 
Trust is the sound of betrayal in the dark. 
Trust is the sound of a souls last breath. 
Trust is the sound of death.

~from a song called "The Color of Trust" which appears in LORD OF CHAOS by Robert Jordan

Take 6 - David vs. Goliath

My last post was "Oh Mary, Don't You Weep" by Take 6, and I started reminiscing. I love Love LOVE a cappella music, and growing up, Take 6 was just about my favorite. They were even more talented than Boyz II Men (sacrilege!) if not as media-savvy. Anyway, this is one of my favorites. I don't remember the name of the tape I had, but I know this was the first song on Side 2. Really a spectacular rendition by the guys.  (Oh, and how great are those shirts?  I want one!!!)


Seems like I do a lot of moaning lately - literally, as it helps with pain. Anyway, I guess Mary and Martha had more to be upset about, and they were able to suck it up (one presumes). So I guess I can too. This song helps.

9 seconds

I awoke in awe and wonder. Head clear, no piercing throb in the extremities. Lasted 9 seconds; the best 9 seconds I can remember. #storyofme
