Lyrics

Water

Written By: William H Bishop

cool the summer said.
as the tide rose to my knees.
she said baby so hows the water?
I filled myself with wet and placed it on her.
Seasons grow to cold and freeze my feet.
pull my lady close to heat my heart beat. and she said
Lovin' you just makes the seasons stroll
how'd you like to call me love for life
i'll be your beuty when the snow covers all from color.
i'll be the name they chose... and baby I 'l be your wife
so i said
I love my fires in the winter
summer temps your flowy dress.
i'll call you wife for life and seal my spring time girl with an autumn kiss
singin
cool would be the water
as it toppled down upon her
in the heat i call my lover
not just for lust she is my water.

herbal tea

Written By: William H Bishop

I wake open eyed see your face before me morning rain
Our love is like a puddle give and take reflections quite the same
Longing for an always to this moment
as you wake and tell me... all about the dreams you had of fortune
and the sun burns through our shade
shinning
hinting to us that it's more than what it.........
I is I .... I follow the breath to a place of peace in time..
share with you a loving of words ...a loving of words that culminates franziska
..oh to move like a guitar pick ..intention to tease its music to your sole
and we both react to the give and take.....
I sit .. take a sip of the coffe bean i bought in costa rica
herbal tea with local honey sooths the lips of the love I call franziska
..aromas drift like a base acoustic
as we sit and watch the
growing ...its early spring
and the buds are barely showing
above the tree
blooming as are we as are...
I is you .... I follow the breath to a place of rest in time..
as I share with you a loving of words ...a loving of words that culminates franziska
..oh to move like a guitar pick ..intention to tease its music to your sole
and we both relax both relax
love is not for future occupation we close our eyes
nose to nose
feel her breath a pattern on my
I is I .... I follow the breath to a place of peace in time..
herbal tea with local honey sooths the lips of the love I call franziska

And So She Crys

Written By: William Hambleton Bishop

And So She Crys

And so she crys
its’ not how I thought it would be
can’t pay to see my family
workin’ so hard days go bye
I’m helpin’ but nobody cares
they’ll pay to watch bitches skip dinner
but not to the women that share

their hearts and their soles to the world
find sufferin’ and give it a cure
oh you will not knock me down though I’m bruised
I’;; fight till reality is truth
for you to taste like blood dripped from your cheek
when suffering bights with its’ teeth

said I’m injured but I will survive
just waitin’ on my pain to subside
might rest in the comfort of you
and baby you truly are all that I need
oh but judgment is a fast growing seed
was planted now I must compare

said my money was given to another
so dear I cry on your shoulder
let love heal remind me the way
how we use to be fine with nothing
they insult me with all that they have
in terms of giving they’ve not given half

now I’m boilin’ in self made misery
crying reflects this to me
for it was never material things
no but a love symbolized by two rings
for me to have love with my best friend
to get love to give love the end

now I’m boilin’ in self made misery
singing reflects this to me
for it was never material things
no but a love symbolized by two rings
for me to have love with my best friend
to get love to give love the end

Boy of the Fall

Written By: William Hambleton Bishop

Boy of the Fall

In age I will find my love is at my side
and peace will be seen in the home where we reside
You can question me sure … sure don’t we all
But happiness is Willis… the Boy of the Fall

So I might have missed a couple of social events…
While I was up in the mountains with you
Oh but I’d not trade a second… no, for you made… me happy
Pass judgments ok… I can hear them all…
For happiness is Willis… the Boy of the Fall

Judging’ me based on your priorities
Alright… if that’s what you need
I’ve seen the stars through a high altitude night
And my wife… holding’ me tight…
There’s a soft summer breeze and she says that she loves me

And when I awake… you know I’m not much for words
So I take my guitar and play to the morning… yeah
Yes she kissed me at sunrise… I most clearly recall
And happiness is Willis… the Boy of the Fall

Knife

Written By: William Hambleton Bishop

Knife

I walk alone with the thoughts in my head telling me so and so
Said world… where’s the love?
I see vengeance between us for reasons unconscious when there’s a better way
Oh I look to the tree as it gently sways knowing the seasons will change but still say the same
For there will always be now… yeah the connection between us
And if the clouds hold their rain and wind fails to sing there will always be love

Stop… stop you fighting
For as we sharpen our knives we’re blinding our eyes
To the truth we all know when we open our minds to the love
Yes we’re all connected
And we gonna find this here happiness
As we expand our consciousness of love

And as I walk through the hills and start to think of this mess
I start to argue and rant of their unconsciousness
And then I look all around from the sky to the ground
And I find that my mind is stuck in my head
And all the thoughts that I think are bringing me down…
Down to a place where sufferers think
That the world in their head will someday be real if they persuade the whole world
To feel as the feel… then we find
Oh it’s just an illusion
That separates self from an infinite union with love

I can hear you
And you’re crying
You courageously let out your tears
Your emotions prove you’re alive
Saying love…
It’s not one thing
No it’s everything
From the pain…
To the reframe

I can know we
We can know I
Is love for everything… as everything is we
So…

Stop… stop you fighting
For as we sharpen our knives we’re blinding our eyes
To the truth we all know when we open our minds to the love

We can see you
Full moon rising
Pain meets passion
We’re alive
We can feel you
And you’re growing
With compassion
We’re alive

For as we sharpen our knives were blinding our eyes
To the truth we all know when we open our minds to the love
