i've learned from the people i love
and the people i don't
from the bands that move my heart
and from bands that leave me cold
from the musicians who carry my heart in their hands
i've learned from picasso blue
and van gogh and his dancing flowers
and the happy dog playing in the street
mother moon has shared her secrets
the sun has filled me with her light
the bird that flies upon the wind
has shown me how to fly in Joy's delight
the butterfly has taught me the softness
of my grandmother's touch
the smile that is in your eyes
is the smile that blooms in my heart
i've learned that if you "love" people
even when they cause you sadness
you can give them soulshine
and they can usually give you lovelight back
for those that can't
remember they struggle to feel and see the
cool sweetness of painted silver light
they carry a burden they can't put down
none of us build a perfectshelter there's a tear
in the old patchworkquilt
all of us are "Brand New Angels"
"we get to carry each other, carry eachother"
to the light!
"Save my weary soul, take me from this hole
Lead me to the light or just take me through the night
Brand new angel, never turn your back on me
Look deep into my eyes and tell me what you see
People say you should stay away but I disagree"
just me being patch!
(bono and warren lyrics of course)
"I love being alive and I will be the best man (woman)
I possibly can. I will take love wherever I find it and
offer it to everyone who will take it...seek knowledge
from those wiser and teach those who wish to learn from me..."
