Sounds on Thursday 221: ‘Nearer To The Heart’s Desire’ by Michel Montecrossa

Michel Montecrossa & Mirakali – live on stage

Continuing the Sounds on Thursday blog post series with the Hip Hop / Cyberrock track ‘Nearer To The Heart’s Desire’ by Michel Montecrossa. Listen here to the song and read below the song lyrics

SONG LYRICS

NEARER TO THE HEART’S DESIRE

Indeed the idols I have loved so long
have done my credit in this world much wrong:
Have drowned my glory in a shallow cup,
and sold my reputation for a song.

Indeed, indeed, repentance oft before
I swore – but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came spring, and rose-in-hand
my thread-bare penitence apieces tore.

And much as wine has played the infidel,
and robbed me of my robe of honor – well,
I wonder often what the vintners buy
one half so precious as the stuff they sell.

Oh, that spring should vanish with the rose!
That youth’s sweet-scented manuscript should close!
The nightingale that in the branches sang,
whence and whither flown again, who knows!

Would but the desert of the fountain yield
one glimpse – if dimly, yet indeed, revealed,
to which the fainting traveler might spring,
as springs the trampled herbage of the field!

Would but some winged angel, not too late,
arrest the yet unfolded roll of fate
and make the old habits go away
and change them into freedom again!

Oh love! Could you and I with her conspire
to grasp this sorry scheme of things entire,
would not we shatter it to pieces – and then
re-mold it nearer to the heart’s desire!

The rising lady-moon that looks for us again –
forever then will turn down the pain,
forever then will rise and look at us
in the paradise where we are on top.

Lyrics: Omar Khayyam adapted to music by Michel Montecrossa.

Don’t Cheat

How it could be and how it should be
is what it means to choose to be free.
Helping each other for freedom expression
is what it means to love and to feel better.

The world is changin’ and you do it too.
Do it together: That will be good for you.
The soul is forever and you have her too.
Find her together: It is good, it is true.

Don’t cheat the true, the right and the vast.
Be the child from heaven, the kingdom that lasts.
Know how to see, to feel and to love.
Know how to live, know the meaning of all.

How it could be and how it should be
is what it means to choose eternity.
Helping each other for truth expression
is what it means to love and to do better.

The world is changin’ and you do it too.
Do it together: that is the clue.
The soul is forever and you have her too.
Live her together: it is good, it is true.

Don’t cheat the true, the right and the vast .
Be the child from heaven, the kingdom that lasts.
Know how to see, to feel and to love.
Know how to be, know the meaning of all.

The world is moving forward on the nameless path.
Tomorrow is for the loveliest, tomorrow is for the best.
Without end is rolling time, the road of the blessed.
Prepare for today and stand your own test.

Don’t cheat the true, the right and the vast.
Don’t cheat.

Song & Lyrics Spotlight: ‘It’s Love, Man! It Ain’t Crazy & Drunk!’ by Michel Montecrossa

Song & Lyrics Spotlight: ‘It’s Love, Man! It Ain’t Crazy & Drunk!’ by Michel Montecrossa 

It’s Love, Man! It Ain’t Crazy & Drunk!

It’s love, man! It ain’t crazy and drunk!
It ain’t the angel of the dark drink
that finally shall find you by the river-brink.
It’s love, man! It ain’t crazy and drunk.

Yeah, it’s love, man, and it ain’t crazy and drunk.
It’s the soul of love that can throw the false from inside out
and naked on the air of heaven ride.
Yeah, it’s love, man and it ain’t crazy and drunk.

Love knows no shame, love you cannot tame.
Love is in the kiss you drink, the lips you press.
Lovers are today what yesterday they were
and with them love will always stay.

It’s love, man! It ain’t crazy and drunk!
Feel your fingers tender in her pussy young,
torn no more between wild things human or divine.
You must not shrink, you must invite.

Infinity feeling from the ballroom door agape
is makin’ you shine in your naked angel shape.
Bared of fear and sorrow, rich with sweet tomorrow
out of your mind you drive black thoughts that do not know.

Yeah, it’s love, man, and it ain’t crazy and drunk.
It’s the soul of love that can fling around you her arms.
Unmasked with the light of flesh abides:
The fire-dragon of love that never dies.

It’s love, man! It ain’t crazy and drunk!
Feel your senses bright with light and young.
Scorned no more by demons human or divine.
You must not shrink, you must invite.

Infinite power from the unknown door agape
is giving back to you your love-born wonder shape.
