Beautiful People

Beautiful people walk this planet,
Beautiful people, every day,
Beautiful people walk this planet,
They cool the sun and warm the rain.

There is a balance in life.
A beam to walk along.
But only the enlightened ones,
Find their way on.

The one driving force
Is the beauty of it all.
Surrender to our earth.

We are seeds and we are sowers,
We are planters and are plants,
With the capacity to love
Like no other can.

Love, the green mountainscape and tall tree line
Before a vast ocean wider than time.

All that stands before us, is beauty in life.
Each and every aspect,
The gleam upon a knife.

Sounds in the oceans,
Across valleys, through streams,
Truths in every rhythm
The life it brings.

It's really up to us,
What we do and do not see.
There is one thing I know
If you want to, you will be free.

Beautiful people walk this planet,
Beautiful people, every day
Beautiful people walk this planet.
Respecting beauty, every day.

On a Rainy Day

They met on an April morning, in the year of jump and jive.
And they fell into each other madly, a love was on the rise.
They met on every chance they had, to celebrate this time.
And then one day she tried to say, as she looked into his eyes.

Will you love me on a rainy day? When I'm not so nice.
Will you love me on a rainy day? Or will you then think twice?
Will you love me on a rainy day? If I get up to go?
Will you love me on a rainy day? When I push and pull.
Will you love me on a rainy day? When I think you're bad?
Will you love me on a rainy day? When I've given all I had.

This is what she tried to say, but she couldn't get it out.
Something made it hard to say, they call it fear and doubt.
And when the rain began to fall, she would not say a thing.
She would try and keep it in, and be a perfect being.
But he knew there was something wrong; it was not hard to see.
How she was so critical, and paranoid he'd leave.
And then she kicked him out the door, before she would get hurt.
Her pain should have been clear to see, he must have been a jerk.

And will you love me on a rainy day? Can you read my mind?
Will you love me on a rainy day? When I tell you I'm just fine.
Will you love me on a rainy day? When you're on the street.
Will you love me on a rainy day? And bow before my feet.
Will you love me on a rainy day? Cater to my needs,
Will you love me on a rainy day? Or is it best I leave?

He was stunned and took on more, than he could possibly do.
He tried to show her enough love, to help them carry on through.
He'd climb right on back up that wall, and put pieces together again.
Despite all of the critical warnings, of all  horses and men.
And for a while things would work out; the sun decides to shine.
Until the clouds push in again, and another sharp decline.
And riding on this ragged roller coaster, of a fair weather love.
The time had come for him to question on what he's keeping up.

Will she love me on her rainy days? Will she let me in?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Or is it sink or swim?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Or will she live in doubt?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Or will she kick me out?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Or am I all alone?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Or will she kick and stone?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Will she care for my soul?
Will she love me on her rainy days? Can she be so bold?

And to that end the answer was clear, but hard for him to hold.
To that end the answer was clear, the answer was clearly no.
