"You gotta Sing like you don't need the money..."

That's by Guy Clark, a great song and one I perform myself sometimes.

Music has been integral to my spiritual path and I'm sure that's true of many.

Here's some lyrics from the great Canadian singer/songwriter Bruce Cockburn:

ARROWS OF LIGHT

Arrows of light
come
pierce my soul
pierce my soul.

Breath of the bright wind
make us one
make us one

Life is singing
Like a great bell ringing.


and another favorite from Bruce:

ALL THE DIAMONDS IN THE WORLD

all the diamonds in this world
that mean anything to me
are conjured up by wind and sunlight
sparkling on the sea

i ran aground in a harbor town
lost the taste for being free
thank God he sent some gull-chased ship
to carry me to sea

two thousand years and half a world away
dying trees still will grow greener when you pray

silver scales flash bright and fade
in reeds along the shore
like a pearl in a sea of liquid jade
his ship comes shining
like a crystal swan in a sky of suns
his ship comes shining


anyone else have songs to share?

Roger
