Inspirational Tunes Lyrics

brian-eno-the one-and-only

Artist: Brian Eno
Song: How Many Worlds
Album: Another Day On Earth

Thinking of a world and the light of the sun
And all the many lives that were ever begun,
Ever begun.

Our little world turning in the blue
As each day goes there’s another one new,
Another one new.

How many people will we feed today,
How many lips will we kiss today,
If we wake up?

How many worlds will we ever see,
And how people can we ever be,
If we wake up?

Thinking of a world in the light of the sun
And all the many lives that were ever begun,
Ever begun.

Song: Calling God
Album: Jann Arden

Every leaf on every tree
And every drop of water in the sea
Every grain of weathered sand
That smashes itself onto dry land
Every stone and every petal, everything that’s elemental
You are never gone

Calling God, calling out

Folded hands and bended knees
I pray for life’s catastrophes
Oh hallelujah, save us all
Rock of ages fire fall
Holy-roller roll away, send salvation, send a saint
I am not alone

Calling God, calling out
Calling God, calling out

Every leaf on every tree
And every drop of water in the sea
Every grain of weathered sand
That smashes itself onto dry land
Every stone and every petal, everything that’s elemental
Every tear that hits the ground
Everything that’s lost and never found
Every hill dreams of a mountain
Every heart a bleeding fountain
Every wish and every prayer
That always seems to disappear

Every leaf on every tree, and every drop of water in the sea
Every drop of water in the sea

Song: God (take 1)
Album: All American Alien Boy

God said to me “Gonna kick your ass – ‘cos all you do is ask ask ask
All that energy looking for me when I’m sitting here inside you – plain to see
How I built you cell for cell gave you sights to see – gave you tales to tell
Even let you help yourself for a while – to take some weight off this busy child”

I said to God “I found you out – I know what this world is all about!”
God said “Stop – don’t scramble your brain – my opponent’s been messing you around again
See him and me are enemies and we play little games for galaxies
And he’s inside you – ‘n I am too – so here we are – just the three of you”

“Oh we made mistakes – too many cards – but making human beings can be hard
A God gets tired of playing so much chess – he wishes his God would get him out of his mess”
I said to God “What’s it like to die” He said “It’s as plain as the sea and sky
Conception was him and me and you – when your batteries fade we all just move on”

I said to God “Who’s winning this game – is the devil in front” He said “Is that his name
You know I’ve been so busy I never asked – I never looked up from this awesome task”
I said to God “What’s good ‘n bad” He said “It’s just something you’ve got to have
It don’t mean nothing to us up here – but your primitive people – you gotta have fear”

I said to God “Do I think for myself” He said I told you once you just help yourself
Don’t forget you’re composed of three, your thinking comes from him and me”
I said to God “How big are you, is there a religion – is it true
How big’s the universe – is time – the same for you as my life is to mine”

God said “If all the things that made worlds float – were all to part – then you would note
The size of him and the size of me – and that’s how big we both shall be”

He said “The universe is small – just like some fortune-teller’s ball
And we both sit down – and we play the game – when somebody wins it all starts again”

“There’s no religion – you did that – it helps to keep your little leaders fat
Like faith ‘n superstition stay – to help you pass the time away
But when you talk of time and life – it makes me think of circles, heights
Expansion is the clue – your dreams – are nearer than you’ve ever been”

“You see my little toy to think – is from two bowls of wine to drink
Don’t take too much or you may drown – behave yourself – see you around…”

Song: Calling All Angels
Album: When I Was a Boy

Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica
Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla
Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir
and all the rest

a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
and high above the church bells start to ring
and as the heaviness the body oh the heaviness settles in
somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it’s one foot then the other as you step out onto the road
how much weight? how much weight?
then it’s how long? and how far?
and how many times before it’s too late?

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don’t leave me alone
calling all angels
calling all angels
we’re cryin’ and we’re hurtin’
and we’re not sure why…

and every day you gaze upon the sunset
with such love and intensity
it’s almost…it’s almost as if
if you could only crack the code
then you’d finally understand what this all means

but if you could…do you think you would
trade in all the pain and suffering?
ah, but then you’d miss
the beauty of the light upon this earth
and the sweetness of the leaving

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don’t leave me alone
callin’ all angels
callin’ all angels
we’re tryin’
we’re hopin’
we’re hurtin’
we’re lovin’
we’re cryin’
we’re callin’
’cause we’re not sure how this goes
