Rules and Pingback here

This second song is not only a song it’s a history lesson.

Big River by Jimmy Nail

Walking on cobbled stones, little bits of skin and bone
Jumping on a tram car for a ride
I can remember when, I was a just a boy of ten
Hanging around the old Quayside
Now all the capstans and the cargo boats
And Stevadores are gone
To where all the old ships go
But memories, just like the sea live on

‘Cause that was when coal was King
The river was a living thing
And I was just a boy but it was mine
The coaly Tyne

This was a big river
I want you all to know
That I was proud
This was a big river
But that was long ago
That’s not now, that’s not now

My father was working man
He earned our living with his hands
He had to cross the river every day
He picked up his Union card, out of the Neptune yard
Mouths to feed and bills to pay
There came a time for him to sail across the sea and far away
And finally when the war was won
They brought him home and home he stayed
And when his days were done
Under a golden sun
They took him back to where he longed to be
Back to the sea

This was a big river
I want you all to know
That I was proud
This was a big river
But that was long ago
That’s not now, that’s not now

The Neptune was the last to go
I heard it on the radio
And then they played the latest number one
But what do they do all day
And what are they supposed to say
What does a father tell his son?
If you believe that there’s a bond between our future and our past
Try to hold on to what we have
We build them strong, we built to last

‘Cause this is a mighty town
Build upon solid ground
And everything they’ve tried so hard to kill
We will rebuild

This is a big river
I want you all to know I’m so very proud
This is a big river
But that was long ago
That’s not now
This is a big, big river
And in my heart I know it will rise again
The river will rise again

Song Lyric Sunday, Water Cohesion

We gather here today at NewEpicAuthor‘s place for another episode of SLS Helen Vahdati’s This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time Song Lyric Sunday. The prompt this week is “Ocean/Sea/Lake/Bay”,

Title Water Cohesion, Rules and Pingback here.

Well thinking cap on. Not a difficult choice thus week. 1000 Oceans by Tori Amos. I am feeling back little fragile right now and this song expresses my mood well.

1000 Oceans

These tears I’ve cried
I’ve cried 1000 oceans
And if it seems
I’m floating in the darkness
Well, I can’t believe that I would keep
Keep you from flying
And I would cry 1000 more
If that’s what it takes
To sail you home
Sail you home
Sail you home

I’m aware what the rules are
But you know that I will run
You know that I will follow you
Over silbury hill
Through the solar field
You know that I will follow you

And if I find you
Will you still remeber
Playing at trains
Or does this litte blue ball
Just fade away
Over silbury hill
Through the solar field
You know that I will follow you
I’m aware what the rules are
But you know that I will run
You know that I will follow you

These tears I’ve cried
I’ve cried 1000 oceans
And if it seems
I’m floating in the darkness
Well I can’t believe that I would keep
Keep you from flying
So I will cry 1000 more
If that’s what it takes
To sail you home
Sail you home
Sail you home
Sail
Sail you home

Love lost .

Loved hand in mitten

Oh I long to hold you

Sadly our paths are written

Too much separates us.

Longingly I see images

Of happiness lost

Verified at such a cost

Ever may you be happy.
