Music and Symbols


***PRESENTATION ON SYMBOLS AND QUOTES TO BE PLACED HERE***

Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland
Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

True Colors – Cyndi Lauper

But I see your true colors, shining through
I see your true colors, and that's why I love you
so don't be afraid to let them show
your true colors, true colors are beautiful
like a rainbow


Chelsea Morning – Joni Mitchell
Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning
And the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains
And a rainbow on the wall
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you
Crimson crystal beads to beckon

Oh, won't you stay
We'll put on the day
There's a sun show every second


The Rainbow Connection - Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher - The Muppet Movie
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.


What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong, Eva Cassidy
Colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
and also in the faces, of the people passing by…

I Can See Clearly Now - John Nash
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin' for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Beannacht - John O'Donohue

And when your eyes
Freeze behind
The gray window
And the ghost of loss
Gets in to you,
May a flock of colors,
Indigo, red, green
And azure blue
Come to awaken in you
A meadow of delight.

Soul Meets Body - Death Cab For Cutie
I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap its arms around me
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
And feel, feel what its like to be new

Come Healing - Leonard Cohen
O, see the darkness yielding
That tore the light apart
Come healing of the reason
Come healing of the heart

O, troubledness concealing
An undivided love
The heart beneath is teaching
To the broken heart above

The Scientist - Cold Play
I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart


Ther
e is a Reason - Allison Krause
In all the things that cause me pain,
You give me eyes to see
I do believe but help my unbelief

Bitterweet Symphony - Verve
Well I never pray But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

Anthem - Leonard Cohen
You can add up the parts
but you won't have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

Timshel - Mumford & Sons
Cold is the water
It freezes your already cold mind
Already cold, cold mind
And death is at your doorstep
And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance

But you are not alone in this
And you are not alone in this
As brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand.
Hold your hand

Bridge Over Troubled Waters - Simon and Garfunkel
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

 Lose Yourself - Eminem 
Lose yourself in the music, the moment - you own it.

Oh, Had I a Golden Thread - Pete Seeger
Oh, had I a golden Thread
And needle so fine
I've weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design.

In it I'd weave the bravery
Of women giving birth,
In it I would weave the innocence
Of children over all the earth,
Children of all earth.

I Hope You Dance - Lee Ann Womack
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

Just Breathe - Anna Nalick
'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

Let it Be - Beatles
And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me.
Shine until tomorrow, let it be.
