Creation

In freewrite, lyrics, poetry on May 16, 2011 at 9:16 pm

Hope is the bird that sings while the night is still dark.
Hope is the bird that sings while the night is still dark.
I will awaken the dawn.
I will awaken the dawn.

For You have promised to be faithful,
And all Your promises are true.
You are faithful to redeem,
And I will wait for you.

I am a new creation like the spring.
I am a new creation like the spring.

Hope is the bird that sings while the night is still dark.
Hope is the bird that sings while the night is still dark.
I will awaken the dawn.
I will awaken the dawn.

I wait for you like the watchman wait for the morning;
Like a child waits in the dark for loving arms.
You are faithful to redeem,
And I will wait for you.

I am a new creation like the spring.
I am a new creation like the spring.

I will wait for you while the night is still dark.
I will wait for you while the night is still dark.
I will sing to you while the night is still dark.
I will rest in You while the night is still dark.
I’ll put my hope in You while the night is still dark.
For You remain faithful and true while the night is still dark.

The Spring is coming, The Spring is coming and I will sing.
The Spring is coming, The Spring is coming and I will sing.
For You are faithful, You are faithful – I will sing.
Because You are faithful, You are faithful – I will sing.

For there is a hope, there is a hope
And it is You
For there is a hope, there is a hope
And it is You

softly

In freewrite, lyrics, poetry on May 14, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Speak – softly
Of sunlight and lavender
Speak – softly
Of daisies, and days when we were young.

Speak – softly
of aster and agrimony
Speak – softly
of balsam and canterbury bells.

Speak – softly
Of roses, light pink and thornless.
Speak – softly
Of mornings, and dreams that we’ve loved best.

….

Speak – softly
Of snowdrops and sunflowers.
Speak – softly
Of long walks and endless hours.

Speak – softly
Of clover and meadowsweet
Speak – softly
And whisper close to me.

Speak – softly
Of sunlight, and lavender.
Speak, Softly
Of fennel, and better days to come

Fierce and Captivating King

In freewrite, lyrics, poetry on April 11, 2011 at 9:32 am

There was fire on the mountain
Hallelujah, we sing
And the smoke was like a fountain
Hallelujah, we sing

A great multitude of people
Hallelujah, we sing
Gathered round and, awestruck, trembled
Hallelujah, we sing

For our eyes have seen God Almighty
Our own souls have beheld His glory
Our ears are witness to His fury
And His overwhelming jealous love

Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.
All the people of the earth, gather thunderstruck and sing!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.

There was quaking on the earth.
Hallelujah, we sing
Foreshadows of a coming a birth.
Hallelujah, we sing

And they lifted up their eyes
Hallelujah, we sing
And the pavement n’eath His feet
Was a sapphire sky

Oh, our eyes have seen God Almighty.
Our own souls have beheld His glory.
Our ears are witness to His fury,
And His overwhelming jealous love.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.
All the people of the earth, gather thunderstruck and sing.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.

There was music in the heavens.
Hallelujah, we sing
For a sign had been given.
Hallelujah, we sing

A virgin let out a birth cry
Hallelujah, we sing
The King was taking back His Bride
Hallelujah, we sing

Oh, our eyes have seen God Almighty.
Our own souls have beheld His glory.
Our ears are witness to His fury,
And His overwhelming jealous love.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.
All the people of the earth, gather thunderstruck and sing.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, fierce and captivating King.

the poet and his girl

In lyrics on March 21, 2011 at 11:39 am

If we two were like the birds
In the tree
On your arm
You would write me letters
On the leaves

All the day
We would sing our songs
And you would write poetry
On my wings

If we two were like the children
In the park
You would blow Wrigley’s bubbles
Bigger than me

All night long
We would try to float
We’d laugh
As we closed our eyes to gravity

If we two
Were mountain climbers
We would find
A place far above the valley

Linking arms,
We would jump
And fly
Landing in a splash of green.

Thief

In freewrite, lyrics, poetry on February 18, 2011 at 10:28 am

You – gave me your love
You – gave me a song
You – took them away
And now you’re gone.

Thief! Where have you gone
With my prized possessions?
Thief! Where have you gone?
Where are the long confessions
That you wanted to stay.

We – ran through the rain.
We – sang through the night.
I – wrote my memories on paper airplanes
When you left – they took flight.

Thief! Where have you gone
With my prized possessions?
Thief! Where have you gone?
Where are your long confessions
That you wanted to stay?

Thief! Where have you gone?
I was your prized possession…
Thief! Where have you gone?
Where are the long confessions
Of your love?

autumn

In lyrics, poetry on November 9, 2010 at 12:38 am

We’re dancing in a technicolor storm
We’re dying in a technicolor storm
The movement keeps our frigid bodies warm
The colors keep our souls alive.

We’re singing in a technicolor storm
We’re flirting with the technicolor storm
The words on our lips keep our frigid bodies warm
We’ll rake and dive
Into the leaves until we die

In freewrite, lyrics, poetry on October 29, 2010 at 12:06 pm

Everything was painted black&white
Until the grey scale of the night
Made us fall between the shades
to red

Umbrella lyrics – Song coming soon!

In lyrics, poetry on October 22, 2010 at 1:01 pm

It’s a high of sixty nine today
And they say it’s gonna rain
Bring your umbrella
Bring your umbrella

It’s a high of sixty nine today
And, God willing, it’ll rain
Bring your umbrella
Bring your umbrella

Summer’s gone
There’s no reason to
live back there
We’ve got autumn in
Our autumn colored hair

Summer’s gone
And the winter will
soon be here
Take deep breaths, my friends
Our deaths are drawing near

It’s a high of forty nine today
Leaves are falling —- —- —
Keep your umbrella
Keep your umbrella

It’s a high of forty nine today
It’s all slipping away
Keep your umbrella
Keep your umbrella

Summer’s gone
There’s no reason to
live back there
We’ve got autumn in
Our autumn colored hair

Summer’s gone
And the winter will
soon be here
Take deep breaths, my friends
Our deaths are drawing near

Summer’s gone
There’s no reason to
live back there
We’ve got autumn in
Our autumn colored hair

Summer’s gone
And the winter will
soon be here
Take deep breaths, my friends
Our deaths are drawing near

It’s a high of twenty nine today
The snow is falling again
Leave your umbrella
Leave your umbrella

the ocean

In lyrics, poetry on September 23, 2010 at 10:25 am

There was an ocean in between our eyes
Till our silence built a dam
We were tossing in the ocean waves
You carved ‘I love you’ in the sand

I was right
You came back home
You were wrong
I’m not sitting there alone
You left me in the sand by the shore
You came back but I’m not there anymore
You came back but I’m not there anymore

There was a river in between our eyes
The water ran
And it left it dry
We were floundering in search of air
we dreamed what only dreamers dare
I woke up with ocean in my hair
the cure for everything is saltwater
sweat
tears
and the sea

but mostly the sea

I was right
You came back home
You were wrong
I’m not sitting there alone
You left me in the sand by the shore
You came back but I’m not there anymore
You came back but I’m not there anymore

Listen to it sung
http://www.myspace.com/audreyashira

Moving pictures on the screen
Play the answering machine
You’re voice, a broken melody
Is crackling like fire

Empty bottles, broken glass
Questions I don’t need to ask
We had dreams, but dreams don’t last
Just make us laugh before we die

Seasons pass like people do
Soon the grass will grasp us too
One touch in time, our eyes- they knew
And Eternity was there

I’m heartbroken they say
But they don’t even know the way
I died at the first word you said
You can’t kill a man that’s dead.

They say as I look out
All that I see
Is through rose colored glasses
But roses aren’t pink
They’re the color of red, red blood
