    The truth in Blues.

    Albert King -- Everybody Wants to go to Heaven, But Nobody Wants to Die


    Everybody wants to laugh but nobody wants to cry
    I say, everybody wants to laugh but nobody wants to cry
    Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

    Everybody wanna hear the truth but yet, everybody wants to tell a lie
    I say, everybody wants to hear the truth but still they all wanna tell a lie
    Oh, everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

    (Solo Instrumental Bridge)

    Everybody wanna know the reason without even askin' why
    Oh, everybody wanna know the reason, oh without even askin' why
    You know everybody wanna go to heaven but nobody wants to die

    If I didn’t know better, I would say this song was written for me. It was released in April, 1973, recorded by Eagles. Most people think it is “The” Eagles. Not so. Simply “Eagles”. They were Linda’s backing band for a short road tour in 1971. One big show was at Disney Land.

    So, Happy Birthday Linda. (July 15, 1947)
    Linda Ronstadt - Desperado (Lyrics)

    While taking a break from Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Hot Tuna was formed in 1969 with Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, and Paul Kantner, while Grace Slick was recovering from throat surgery.
    Unfortunately Paul Kantner died in January 2016

    This song is a reminder for all those military brothers who came home with PTSD, and nobody knew.

    “Dreams We Conceive” - Trans Siberian Orchestra


    [Lieutenant William Cozier]

    In a city
    After midnight
    Neath the halo
    Of a street light
    Where the dreams die
    As the blood dries
    On the wounds we keep hidden from View

    In the safety
    Of this darkness
    As it hides all
    Time has tarnished
    The forbidden
    Unforgiven
    Are secure here where no-one Pursues

    But the night fades away
    And gives way to the day
    For what else is the night to do
    As the dark steps aside
    With the hopes we confide
    And never believes
    That the dreams we conceived
    Would ever
    Not ever come true

    Is life different
    After midnight
    With its new dawn
    And its new light
    Inconsistent
    And indifferent
    To the things
    We were so sure we knew

    As you stood there
    In the night air
    With such beauty
    That the stars stared
    From their distance
    You were different
    Like a dream
    That no-one could refuse

    But the night fades away
    And gives way to the day
    For what else is
    The night to do
    As the dark steps aside
    With the hopes we confide
    And never believes
    That the dreams we conceived
    Would ever
    Not ever come true

    (Musical Interlude)

    As you stand all
    Alone at your station
    What if God doesn’t
    Know where you are
    As you send out your
    Prayers for salvation
    But afraid that
    They don’t go that far

    So you wait all
    Alone in your darkness
    There’s a train that drives on
    Through the night
    And if everyone’s
    On it except us
    Would it return for
    That single life

    (Musical Interlude)

    In a city
    After midnight
    Neath the halo
    Of a street light . . .

    When looking at the earth from space, there are no borders! There are no names of countries. It is one planet for all living creatures.

    Hopelessly Human” - Kansas - from Album, Point Of Know Return, 1977


    (Instrumental Introduction)

    It's a strange aberration, this brainstorm of youth
    Though it's lost in translation from fancy to truth
    It's hopelessly human, both inside and out
    A joyous occasion, no reason to doubt
    It's easy somehow, what once was elusive is calling me now

    I am waiting, I am patiently,
    Doing nothing, in a reverie
    Climbing higher, seeing everything
    Interacting, slowly, spiraling
    I am giving, while I'm watching the
    Life I'm living, precious energy
    Escalating, what was once just a game
    It's never the same, no one's to blame

    (Instrumental Interlude)

    It's a strange situation, there's no cause for alarm
    All these hot licks and rhetoric
    Surely do you no harm
    They're hopelessly human, both inside and out
    A joyous occasion, there's no reason to doubt
    When each word is read, would you know the difference
    If nothing was said

    All is rhythm, all is unity
    I am laughing, as it's meant to be
    Just amusing, I am using the
    Word was given, making harmony
    Moving slowly, dancing aimlessly
    Endless circle, turning fearlessly
    Resurrected, falling down again
    Introspective, I'm just stating my views
    Now you can choose, what do you feel
    Is it for real this time

    (Instrumental)

    My musical tastes run from America to ZZTop, Classical to Country. That is, as long as it is well structured, tells a story, or affects emotions. That one was beautiful in my mind. Glad you liked it.

    Here are a couple of songs whose themes fit what is going on in the world.
    The first song is memories of WWII and British Flyers. The term “angels one five
    brought back memories, as it is RAF and USAF for altitude of 1,500 feet.

    Pink Floyd - The Hero’s Return


    The Heroes Return
    Jesus Jesus what’s it all about
    Trying to clout these little ingrates into shape
    When I was their age all the lights went out
    There was no time to whine and mope about

    And even now part of me flies over
    Dresden at angels one five
    Though they’ll never fathom it behind my
    Sarcasm desperate memories lie

    Sweetheart sweetheart are you fast asleep, good
    ‘Cos that’s the only time that I can really talk to you
    And there is something that I’ve locked away
    A memory that is too painful
    To withstand the light of day

    When we came back from the war the banners and
    Flags hung on everyones door
    We danced and we sang in the street and
    The church bells rang

    But burning in my heart
    My memory smolders on
    Of the gunners dying words on the intercom

    Jesus Christ I might as well be dead
    If I can’t see how dangerous it must feel to be
    Training human cogs for the machine
    Without some shell-shocked lunatic like me

    Bombarding their still soft shores
    With sticks and stones that were lying around
    In the pile of unspeakable feelings I’d found

    And I turned back the stone
    Turned over the stone
    Of my own disappointment
    Back home

    Warning-This song is considered as Heavy Heavy Metal

    This song is about those who do not heed the word of God
    All the way back to Job, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Amos.

    Accept - Die by the Sword


    Die By The Sword
    The world around us, frozen in terror
    The balance of power, a thing of the past
    Anything human has been abandoned
    We’re just drowning souls in a river of blood

    If you live by the sword You will die by the sword
    If you live by the sword You will die by the sword

    We’re sinking deeper in a world of darkness
    It’s kill or be killed from the day we are born
    We’re an evil seed from the soul of a serpent
    An evil breed in a valley of thorns

    What was built up in thousands of years
    In just a moment is destroyed
    Have we lost all compassion and love
    Cast out souls into the void

    If you live by the sword You will die by the sword
    If you live by the sword You will die by the sword

    Blood and vengeance, Iron and bone
    Fallen warriors, carved in stone

    Crush this mindless desire for blood
    And stop this endless crusade
    Conquer our instincts and lay down the steel
    Save our children from the blade

    If you live by the sword You will die by the sword
    If you live by the sword You will die by the sword
