Song Description

This song was written in the late 60's and showcases one of my many unique tunings that I have used for years when composing.

Story Behind the Song

It was inspired when I sat on a high hill outside Lawrence, KS...and wrote this song. It is really a combination of pondering, philosophy and poetry....typical of a lot of my early work.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I like the strumming guitar and the vocals as well - sounds a bit like the band U2.

    - Randal Dunkle

like the start. like the tempo change. good strummin. very fresh voice---appreciative of that!

    - Patrick E. Muth/Catnip Pat

VERSE 1.
We may have talked
We may have thought
We may have dreamed together
Yet, as I sit here right now
It really means nothing
Crossing the days off of the calendar
Watch them peacefully march on (by)
In the crisscross march of today
In a parade of constant time

CHORUS
And here I sit upon the hill
And watch the cloud show
And here I sit upon the hill
And watch the cloud show
And here I sit upon the hill
And watch the cloud show go by

VERSE 2.
For me there is only the thought
Of your touch and it's warmth
To keep me till time
Takes my hand leads me and then we kiss
To be free to fear is life
To be free to exist is being
To be free to wonder is liberty
To be free to love is essence

CHORUS - Repeat

VERSE 3.
The art of forming fantasy
Has been woken from its bed
It may be here to give us human truth
Yet, destruction may kill it instead
Won't you stop and wallow in a dream
Share the natural high of love
Follow compassion's mystery trail
Into the forest of love

CHORUS - Repeat
