(k.d. lang/Ben Mink) 

Even through the darkest phase 
Be it thick or thin 
Always someone marches brave 
Here beneath my skin 

Constant craving 
Has always been 

Maybe a great magnet pulls 
All souls towards truth 
Or maybe it is life itself 
That feeds wisdom 
To its youth 

Constant craving 
Has always been 

Craving 
Ah ha 
Constant craving 
Has always been 

Constant craving 
Has always been 
Constant craving 
Has always been 

Craving 
Ah ha 
Constant craving 
Has always been 
Has always been 
Has always been 
Has always been 
Has always been

Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica
Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla
Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir
and all the rest

a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
and high above the church bells start to ring
and as the heaviness the body oh the heaviness settles in
somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it's one foot then the other as you step out onto the road
how much weight? how much weight?
then it's how long? and how far?
and how many times before it's too late?

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don't leave me alone
calling all angels
calling all angels
we're cryin' and we're hurtin'
and we're not sure why...

and every day you gaze upon the sunset
with such love and intensity
it's almost...it's almost as if
if you could only crack the code
then you'd finally understand what this all means

but if you could...do you think you would
trade in all the pain and suffering?
ah, but then you'd miss
the beauty of the light upon this earth
and the sweetness of the leaving

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don't leave me alone
callin' all angels
callin' all angels
we're tryin'
we're hopin'
we're hurtin'
we're lovin'
we're cryin'
we're callin'
'cause we're not sure how this goes

. . .



I was alright for a while
I could smile for a while
Then I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
When you stopped to say hello
You wished me well, you couldn't tell

That I'd been crying over you
Crying over you
Then you said "so long"
And left me standing all alone
Alone and crying

Crying, crying, crying
It's hard to understand
That the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling what can I do?
No you don't love me and I'll always be

Crying over you
Crying over you
Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying,

. . .


(Leonard Cohen)

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

. . .


(Neil Young)

There is a town in north Ontario,
With dream comfort memory to spare,
And in my mind
I still need a place to go,
All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now?
The chains are locked
and tied across the door,
Baby, sing with me somehow.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us


. . .



I see trees of green... red roses too
I see 'em bloom... for me and for you
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue... clouds of white
Bright blessed days...dark sacred nights
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow...so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces...of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands...sayin'.. how do you do
They're really sayin'...i love you.

I hear babies cry... I watch them grow
They'll learn much more...than I'll never know
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world

The colors of a rainbow...so pretty ..in the sky
Are there on the faces...of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands...sayin'.. how do you do
They're really sayin'... (I... love...you).

I hear babies cry... I watch them grow
(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than I'll never know)
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself... what a wonderful world

(k.d. lang/Ben Mink)

Just a kiss just a kiss 
I have lived just for this 
I can't explain why I've become 
Miss Chatelaine 

Just a smile just a smile 
Hold me captive just a while 
I can't explain why I've become 
Miss Chatelaine 

Every time your eyes meet mine 
Clouds of qualm 
Burst into sunshine 

Just a sigh just a sigh 
Words my love just reply 
I can't explain why I've become 
Miss Chatelaine 
Miss Chatelaine 

Zing!! 

Just a smile just a smile 
Hold me captive just a while 
I can't explain why I've become 
Miss Chatelaine 

Every time your eyes meet mine 
Clouds of qualm 
Burst into sunshine 

Just a kiss just a kiss 
I have lived just for this 
I can't explain why I've become 
Miss Chatelaine 

Miss Chatelaine 
Miss Chatelaine 
Miss Chatelaine 

. . .


Once there was a way, to get back homeward
Once there was a way, to get back home
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles await you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Once there was a way, to get back homeward
Once there was a way, to get back home
Sleep pretty darling, don't you cry
I'll sing a lullabye

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love
You make

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles await you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
I will sing a lullabye

. . .


(k.d. lang)

You swim 
Swim through my veins 
Drown me 
In your reign 

My desire 
Carries no shame 
My will 
Will harbour no pain 

Wash 
Wash me clean 
Mend my wounded seams 
Cleanse my tarnished dreams 

Drink 
Drink from my spell 
Quench 
Love's drying well 

Wash 
Wash me clean 
Mend my wounded seams 

. . .


piltch/lang

flawless light in a darkening air
alone...and shining there
love will not elude you

love is simple
i worship this tenacity
and the beautiful struggle we're in
love will not elude us

love is simple
be sure to know that

all in love
is ours
and love, as a philosophy
is simple

i am calm in oblivion
calm, as i ever have been
love will not elude me
love is simple
be sure to know that
all in love
is ours...
is ours...

that all in love
is ours
and love, as philosophy
is simple...
and ours...

. . .


(k.d. lang/Ben Mink)

Out of nowhere this gust of wind 
Brushed my hair and kissed my skin 
I aimed to hold a bridled pace 
When with love itself I came face to face 

Pullin' back the reins 
Trying to remain 
Tall in a saddle 
When all that we had well 
Ran away 
With a will of its own 

I know your soul is wild and free 
Like this galloiong inside me 
Tossed by instinct and where we land 
Is vast and certain of all that's planned 

You know, I learned to break the run 
And gently harness the love of someone 
Yes, and equal parts of wait and trust 

. . .


(Sonny Burke/Paul Francis Webster)

I'm feelin' mighty lonesome 
Haven't slept a wink 
I walk the floor from nine to four 
In between I drink 
Black coffee 
Love's a hand-me-down brew 
I'll never know a Sunday 
In this weekday room 

I'm talkin to the shadow 
One o'clock till four 
And Lord, how slow the moments go 
And all I do is pour 
Black coffee 
Since the blues caught my eye 
I'm hangin' out on Monday 
My Sunday dreams to dry 

Now man was born to go a lovin' 
But was a woman born to weep and fret 
And stay at home and tend her oven 
And down her past regrets 
In coffee and cigarettes 

I'm moonin' all the mornin' 
Moanin' all the night 
And in between it's nicotine 
And not much heart to fight 
Black coffee 
Feelin' low as the ground 
It's drivin' me crazy 
This thinkin' 'bout my baby 
Might maybe come around 

. . .


Have the gods lost their minds,
Are they acting out of kindness?
To send a vision such as you,
Now the object of my blindness

The alchemy of inner worlds,
Can they possibly explain it?
All the grace that you possess,
With my complexity and plainness.

You and I,
Beautifully Combined

Beyond knowing why,
Truth is you and I
