David’s Pick this week:
Bruce Cockburn: Wondering Where the Lions Are

Lyrics

Sun’s up, uuh huh, looks okay
The world survives into another day
And i’m thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.

I had another dream about lions at the door
They weren’t half as frightening as they were before
But i’m thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.

Walls windows trees, waves coming through
You be in me and i’ll be in you
Together in eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
And i’m wondering where the lions are…
I’m wondering where the lions are…

Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake,
Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take,
Pointing a finger at eternity
I’m sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun,
Polished as precise like the brain behind the gun
(Should be!) they got me thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
And i’m wondering where the lions are…
I’m wondering where the lions are…

Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
One of these days we’re going to sail away,
Going to sail into eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
And i’m wondering where the lions are…
I’m wondering where the lions are…

My pick:
Paul McCartney: Maybe I’m Amazed

“Maybe I’m Amazed”

Baby, I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time
And maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time
You hung me on the line
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you

Baby, I’m a man, maybe I’m a lonely man
Who’s in the middle of something
That he doesn’t really understand

Baby, I’m a man
And maybe you’re the only woman who could ever help me
Baby, won’t you help me to understand?
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh

Baby, I’m a man, maybe I’m a lonely man
Who’s in the middle of something
That he doesn’t really understand

Baby, I’m a man
And maybe you’re the only woman who could ever help me
Baby, won’t you help me to understand?
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you’re with me all the time
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I leave you

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song
Right me when I’m wrong
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you
