We’re changing day to day

Moda, child park, pentax k10d , Istanbul

Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
But will you keep on building higher
’til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Cat STEVENS “where do the children play? “

with love and light …

It’s not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
There’s so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy,
To be calm when you’ve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you’ve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Cat Stevens , Father and Son

Heaven must’ve programmed you.

Heaven (where True Love Goes)

The moment you walked inside my door
I knew that I need not look no more,
I’ve seen many other souls before – ah but,
Heaven must’ve programmed you

The moment you fell inside my dreams
I realized all I had not seen,
I’ve seen many other souls before – ah but,
Heaven must’ve programmed you.

Oh will you? Will you? Will you?
I go where True Love goes,
I go where True Love goes
I go where True Love goes,
I go where True Love goes

And if you walk along and if you lose your way,
Don’t forget the one who gave you this today

Follow True Love, follow True Love,
Follow True Love, follow True Love

Oh will you? Will you? Will you?
I go where True Love goes,
I go where True Love goes
I go where True Love goes,
I go where True Love goes

And if a storm should come and if you face away,
That may be the chance for you to be safe
And if you make it through the trouble and the pain,
That may be the time for you to know his name

The moment you walked inside my door
I knew that I need not look no more,
I’ve seen many other souls before – ah but,
Heaven must’ve programmed you

The moment you fell inside my dreams
I realized all I had not seen,
I’ve seen many other souls before – ah but,
Heaven must’ve programmed you.

The moment you said “I will”
I knew that this love was real,
And that my faith was seen – oh
Heaven must’ve programmed you

The moment I looked into your eyes
I knew that they told no lies,
There would be no good byes – Ah
’cause Heaven must’ve programmed you

I go where True Love goes,
I go where True Love goes
I go where True Love goes,
I go where True Love goes

I’ve Found A New Love

Baby, I’ve never had a single thing in my life I could call my own.
There you were, holding a love so true,
Now I’ve got a home, now I’ve got a home.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
Hidden away from the world, baby

Baby, you really make me feel like a king, a king without a crown.
But darlin’, Promise me one little thing: That you won’t let me down.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
Hidden away from the world, baby

Don’t ever tell me lies baby,
Don’t take it for a ride baby,
Just stay here by my side baby,
We won’t ever stop.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
Hidden away from the world, baby

I love them all

I love them all

While lookin’ into my drawer only yesterday
you know, the things that I saw made me cry
I saw the pictures and letters,
I should have known better
than to try to deny

I love them all
I love them all
and if they came again
I’d do the same again
’cause I’m that kind of a guy

And as I walked through the park where we used to play
you know, the bench and the tree are still there
And the pictures that you did,
why am I so stupid?
They wont ever disappear

I love them all
I love them all
and if they came again
I’d do the same again
’cause I’m that kind of a guy

You keep me awake with your white lily smile
Dont keep me watching your charms all the while
Cause as all the wise men say
Grab it if it comes your way
Im ready oh

I love I love Im ready to love yeah
Ready to love
I love I love Im ready to love yeah

You make me feel things Ive never felt before
Help my baby eyes and open up the door
You make me real to everyone and everyday i
I thank the lord that you came along this way
Its no more an illusion than I can say

I love I love Im ready to love yes
I love I love Im ready to love yeah
I love I love Im ready
Ready ready ready to love

a rucken red tulip , everything emptying into white

Into White

I built my house from barley rice
Green pepper walls and water ice
Tables of paper wood, windows of light
And everything emptying into white.

A simple garden, with acres of sky
A Brown-haired dogmouse
If one dropped by
Yellow Delanie would sleep well at night
With everything emptying into white.

A sad Blue eyed drummer rehearses outside
A Black spider dancing on top of his eye
Red legged chicken stands ready to strike
And everything emptying into white.

I built my house from barley rice
Green pepper walls and water ice
And everything emptying into white

We won’t ever stop.

I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

yellow tulips garden, How great the wonders of the heavens

God is the Light

How great the wonders of the heavens
And the timeless beauty of the night
How great – then how great the Creator?
And its stars like priceless jewels
Far beyond the reach of kings
Bow down for the shepherd guiding him home.

But how many eyes are closed
To the wonder of this night?
Like pearls, hidden, deep beneath a dark
Stream of desires.
But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer
And the dawn extinguishes night – here too are signs.
God is the Light – God is the Light

How great the beauty of the Earth and the creatures
Who dwell on her.
How great – then how great the Creator?
As its mountains pierce the clouds
High above the lives of men
Weeping rivers for thousands of years.

But how many hearts are closed
To the wonders of this sight?
Like birds in a cage, asleep with closed wings
But like work stops with the call to prayer
And the birds reside – here too are signs
God is the Light – God is the Light

How great the works of man and the things he makes
How great – then how great the Creator?
Though he strives to reach the heavens
He can barely survive
The wars of the world he lives in.

Yet, how many times he’s tried,
Himself to immortalise?
Like his parents before him in the Garden of Eden
But like the sun sets with the call to prayer
And surrenders to the night here too are signs
God is the Light Everlasting
God is the Light Everlasting
God is the Light Everlasting
God is the Light Everlasting

Last Love Song

if you don’t love me
please don’t treat me this way
cause i can’t stand it
i see our love slipping away
did you think you could just put me down
like a worn out shoe
cause if you don’t want me
maybe i don’t want you

if you don’t need me
don’t leave me out in the cold
eyes drifting by me
like somebody you don’t know
did you think that you
could just walk away
anytime you wanted to
cause if you don’t love me
maybe i don’t love you

did you think that you
could just put me down
for somebody new
cause nobody can love you girl like i do
every little bird in the sky
would sing a song of love

if you would just take me back
come on open up your heart again
let me in baby baby

if you don’t love me
stop fooling yourself
no more acting
i know your show too well
did you think that you could
just shake my hand
with a how d’y’do
cause if you don’t want me
maybe i don’t want you

oh and as you go through life
it’s the little things
that come back again
if you came back again
you know i’d give my loving to you
