An Ordinary Tendency

image“In the beginning you told each other, ‘I cannot live without you. My happiness depends on you.’ You made declarations like that. But when you are angry, you say the opposite: “I don’t need you! Don’t come near me! Don’t touch me!’ You prefer to go into your room and lock the door. You try your best to demonstrate that you don’t need the other person. This is a very human, very ordinary tendency. But this is not wisdom.”

Infinite Distance Yet Side by Side

“Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see … Continue reading

In My Arms

Performed by Jon Foreman

Lyrics:

Here
My dear
This is where
We’ll shake the nightmare free
I dream
To hold you in my arms
I dream
To hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…
I think I figured it out
We need to be together
Like the shore and the sea
We are not one thing
We’re drawn here together
My ocean and me…
I dream
To hold you in my arms
I dream
To hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…
Love, we sleep apart
For the last time
For the last time
I dream
To hold you in my arms
I dream
To hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…
Wide awake
In my arms…
Wide awake
In my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…

*for us, always constant

Between Us

Written and performed by: Peter Bradley Adams

Lyrics:

Hey stranger or may I call you my own
I know I don’t know you, but there’s somewhere I’ve seen you before
Whatever your name is, whatever you do
There’s nothing between us I’m willing to lose

Just call me if ever our paths may collide
I want you to call me under these darkened sky’s
Whoever you love, whoever you kiss
The wandering between us I’m willing to miss

Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

There’s comfort, comfort in things we believe
Other than danger, wanting the things I can’t see

Wherever you live now, wherever you walk
There’s distance between us I’m willing to cross
Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

Hey stranger or may I call you my own
I know I don’t know you, but there’s somewhere I’ve seen you before.
