Angels and Ravens

Dedicated to Annalisa.


Met an elderly man
On a pier staring at the seas

Gave to me 20 thousand
Reasons why I was out of my league

Once upon a time
Like a whisper of destiny
When days would bring their ending

Once a day there was I came to believe
An angel who had come to be a friend to me
Let me be yours friend it said giggled softly

People come knocking, come chopping down trees
Some playing in the dark with the man I mirror
Comes whispering to me, comes whispering always

So you better button up the beating deep freeze
Like a new beginning, a new beginning before me

Once upon a time seeing doppelganger snake eyes
We moved more slowly like a whisper of destiny
When the day would never bring us to the ending

So you better button up to beat being the deep freeze
Like a new beginning, a new beginning not just for me

Guided by angels
Guided by voices of angels and ravens
Guided by voices

Seeing weird scenes
From Solomon's coal mines

Had a strange Texas drawl
Slang when ever he was speaking

Has a fear of God,
Bringing him peace of mind
Sweet mother pulling a venetian blind

Once a day there was I came to believe
An angel who had come to be a friend to me
Let me be yours friend it said giggled softly

I tell you about all the wisdom having ever been
By the side of other brothers and sisters of men
And a friend to the children of the seas all red

It was a whale of a tail of a child all in stripes
He used to watch television judge and bide his time

The East aligns the sunshine and to the gunfire
The West needed eagles flying to arch angled wires
Sings like a queen coming up out from the bee hive

Ain't it great just to be still alive to pray or just sigh
Saying someday sometime when the sun is shining is sky high

Once a day there was I came to believe
An angel who had come to be a friend to me
Let me be yours friend it said giggled softly

Guided by voices
Guided by voices
Of angels and ravens

In the end
In the end there
Is nothing to tell but this, I was there
In the end there
Is only this funny little wish was

Just fine, just fine, just in time
Just before I noticed a stranger inside

Once a day there he was I came to believe
An angel who had come to be a friend to me
Let me be yours friend it said giggled softly

As it sits there on the rose color mantlepiece
Today is a new beginning, a new beginning before
Like a new beginning of a new beginning before me

It is one of those odd balls that first came the main lyrics, then the sing songy voices found their way in as the writing comes, almost like when you get that automatic writing flow...but with less unconsciousness, and more self hypnosis. It also is metaphorically, and directly inspired from the life of my friend Annalisa directly.

She is absolutely a person guided by voices, both from heaven, her head, and sometimes one mistakenly on the TV.

The angels and ravens is imagery that is a secret joke between us. I can say no more...Thanx for reading and being a new fan of late aware. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d
