Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave, her angels in flames.
She has no pain, like a child she is pure, she is not to blame.
Poised for flight, wings spread bright, spring from night into the sun.
Dont stop to run, she can fly like a lie, she cant be outdone.

Tell me the cost; I can pay, let me go, tell me love is not lost.
Sell everything; without love day to day insanitys king.
I will pay day by day, anyway, lock, bolt and key.
Crippled but free, I was blind all the time I was learning to see.

Help on the way, well, I know only this, Ive got you today.
Dont fly away, cause I love what I love and I want it that way.
I will stay one more day, like I say, honey its you.
Making it too, without love in a dream it will never come true.

In another time's forgotten space . . . your eyes looked from your mother's face, wall flower seed on the sand and stone . . . may the four winds blow you safely home.

Roll away the dew . . .

Do you remember the first Grateful Dead song you ever heard?
Tough one, I know, but not for me.

When I was just a kid I loved looking through my siblings' albums, hundreds of them. Album art was an endless source of amazement for me and I also started to really like music early as well.
So when my sister gave me a gift certificate to my neighborhood record store, Loco Records, I was amped!
I already knew I liked Elton John, my brother was into him, so I chose Honkey Tonk Chateau.
I had enough for another album so I flipped through hundreds, just like at my siblings' homes, looking for a cool album cover.
When I came across one with a frizzy haired skeleton wearing sunglasses and playing a violin, I had to have it!
I ran home and called my sister to tell her about my choices.
I remember I could barely even read, or pronounce the name of the album. My sister laughed and helped me along.
Grateful Dead Blues For Allah.

When the needle touched vinyl, there it came.
Help on the Way.

At eight years old, little did I know what I was in for!

i cant remember the first,
though i do remember
that years past thru
me as i crawled and clawed my way along,
searching for the bird song.

finnally a coked-out sweet bartender
with a mistletoe tattoo, she escourted me
thru and thru.

janice was keen, unto.

As I picked up my matches and was closing the door,
I had one of those flashes I'd been there before, been there before.
Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong.
Seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.

Long distance runner, what you holdin out for?
Caught in slow motion in a dash for the door.
The flame from your stage has now spread to the floor
You gave all you had. why you wanna give more?
The more that you give, the more it will take
To the thin line beyond which you really can't fake.

Ah yeah, kinda sorta, I think. But it was Bob Weir whom I lusted after. I mean really.
Also my favorite bike race, California Death Ride ... Heavily borrows from...

First GD song I heard was "Caution on the Tracks". Didn't have any idea who it was - it was this sound that was just pouring out of the local college radio station at 2AM. It was probably an Anthem vinyl. All I know was that it was all you need.

All you need.

Your rain falls like crazy fingers
Peals of fragile thunder keeping time
Recall the days that still are to come
Some sing blue
Hang your heart on laughing willow
Stray down to the water
Deep Sea of Love
Beneath the sweet calm face of the sea
Swift undertow
Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know
See how it feels in the end
May Lady Lullaby sing plainly for you
Soft, strong, sweet and true
Cloud hands reaching from a rainbow
Tapping at the window touch your hair
So swift and bright
Strange figures of light
Float in air
Who can stop what must arrive now?
Something new is waiting to be born
Dark as the night
You're still by my side
Shining side
Gone are the days we stopped to decide
Where we should go
We just ride
Gone are the broken eyes we saw through in dreams
Gone - both dream and lie
Life may be sweeter for this I don't know
Feels like it might be alright
While Lady Lullaby sings plainly for you
Love still rings true
Midnight on a carousel ride
Reaching for the gold ring down inside
Never could reach
It just slips away but I try

We are all reaching for that metaphorical gold ring . . . down inside. Never can quite reach it . . . but still we try. Midnight on a carousel ride . . . life may be sweeter for this.
