Music challenges the creative mind. I’m sure of it.

19 Jul

 

I’m so in love with this Raising Sand album… it’s sick & unhealthy, I’m sure. I apologize for the innocent by- standers that read my blog & could care less about music. Look away for this one.

That being said… I absolutely had to post these song lyrics. I hope you let it marinate in your mind & your soul & let it allow you to think a little… & think outside the box… piecing the lyrics together & understanding symbolization & the amazing thought it takes to write & deliver good music. It’s truly art.  

Trampled Rose:

Long way going to
Get my medicine
Sky’s the autumn grey of a lonely wren
Piano from a window played
Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday
I found it in the street
At first I did not see
Lying at my feet
A trampled rose
Passing the hat in church
It never stops going around
You never pay just once
To get the job done
What I done to me,
I done to you
What happened to the trampled rose?
In the muddy street
With the fireworks and leaves
A blind man with a cup I asked
Would he sing ‘Kisses Sweeter Than Wine’
I know this rose,
Like I know my name
The one I gave my love,
It was the same
Now I find it in the street,
A trampled rose
   

 

Seeing the lyrics without hearing the incredible music, melody, & voice behind it is like seeing only a portion of a piece of art. It’s just beautiful music. period.

I wanted to post the lyrics to 2 of Robert Plant’s songs & another of Alison Krauss’ (from an older album), but I’m aware that is a little obnoxious. I’ll probably cave in a couple of months & post them anyway. serious.
