And another very powerful one for me



An Innocent Man
Billy Joel

Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by
Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie
I know you're only protecting yourself
I know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you
But I'm not above
Making up for the love
You've been denying you could ever feel
I'm not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I can
Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get a look at the young
I'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man
I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before
Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that it's easier to hate
Than to wait anymore
I know you don't want to hear what I say
I know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there and if I can survive
I can keep you alive
I'm not above going through it again
I've not above being cool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understand
Some people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never win
And although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent man
I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man
You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you'd rather be a martyr tonight
That's your decision
But I'm not below
Anybody I know
If there's a chance of resurrecting a love
I'm not above going back to the start
To find out where the heartache began
Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people just accept the world as it is
But I'm not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man
I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

When I need to remind myself that I can recover, that I can write my story, find my voice. "We're not going to sit in silence. we're not going to live in fear".



You're the Voice
John Farnham

We have the chance to turn the pages over
We can write what we want to write
We gotta make ends meet, before we get much older
We're all someone's daughter
We're all someone's son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?
You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh, whoa
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh, whoa
This time, we know we all can stand together
With the power to be powerful
Believing we can make it better
Ooh, we're all someone's daughter
We're all someone's son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?
You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh, whoa
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh, whoa
Ooh, we're all someone's daughter
We're all someone's son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?
You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh, whoa
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh, whoa
You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh, whoa
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh, whoa
You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh, whoa
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh, whoa
You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh, whoa
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh, whoa

I am born to be free ... I no longer have to run



Born To Be Free
Moriah Peters

Come, what you running away from?
Come, there's only liberty here
Now open arms surround you
Now love will conquer your fear
Look up, let go the pain that you've seen
You've been who you are
Not who you could be
Lift up open hands
Reach out where you stand
Wherever you are know that you are
Born to be free
One man sacrifice
One death for all life
Don't forget it
You're forgiven
Born to be free
Bring every imperfection
Bring every hurt you hide
Look up, let go, leave it behind
Healing is here now
There's no need to fight
Lift up open hands
Reach out where you stand
Wherever you are know that you are
Born to be free
One man sacrifice
One death for all life
Don't forget it
You're forgiven
Born to be free
Come, what you running away from?
Come, there's only liberty here
Lift up open hands
Reach out where you stand
Wherever you are, know that you are
Born to be free
One-man sacrifice
One death for all life
Don't forget it
You're forgiven
Born to be free
Lift up open hands
Reach out where you stand
Wherever you are know that you are
Born to be free
One-man sacrifice
One death for all life
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We're born to be free

I know this is opera but it is so incredible....



translation is:

Lascia la spina, cogli la rosa;
tu vai cercando il tuo dolor.

Canuta brina per mano ascosa,
giungerà quando nol crede il cuor.

Leave the thorn, take the rose;
you go searching for your pain.

Gray frost by hidden hand
will come when you heart doesn't expect.

In seeking love we inadvertently seek our own pain. The poet uses the image of a hand searching for a rose, but unexpectedly encountering pain. (In Italian the word for pain and sorrow are the same.) And he uses the image of a hidden hand bringing the gray frost of age when again we don't expect

I am listening to this as I am not feeling very good today

and this is just special......



Tu del ciel ministro eletto, You, the chosen minister of Heaven, non vedrai piu nel mio petto, shall see no more in my breast voglia infida o vanno ardor. an unfaithful wish or vain desire. E se vissi ingrato a Dio, And though I live ungrateful to God, tu custode del cor mio, may you, guardian of my soul, a lui porti il nuovo cor. bring to him a renewed heart.

I've found that lyrics bother me.

Other peoples words can ruin a melody for me.

I love soundtracks and listen to them frequently.

The Tenet soundtrack is my go to right now, because its just new experimental. Ludwig Goransson is an amazing composer.
