Rik’s post, A Musical Note: Tim Buckley ~ Sweet Surrender, transported me from cyber post to cyber point.
After reading Rik’s wise words, I watched Tim Buckley sing Sweet Surrender on YouTube . . . which reminded me how much I enjoy listening to Sarah sing her version of Sweet Surrender . . . which made me pause to watch Sarah tickle the ivories on Angel . . .
Which led me around to Sarah singing Building A Mystery with its talk of vampires, voodoo dolls, ghosts in the halls, sandals in the snow, know-it-all grins, smiles that won’t wash away, and looking out the window without our shadows getting in the way:
You come out at night
That’s when the energy comes
And the dark side’s light
And the vampires roam
You strut your rasta wear
And your suicide poem
And a cross from a faith that died
Before Jesus came
You’re building a mystery
Here’s Sarah singing Building A Mystery ~ something most of us do, day by day, as we live our lives:
In uncertainty lies all possibility . . .
