Mystic Energy #newsong #thecranberries #lorijeanfinnila

Art speaks to us through writing.

When I was studying I had to read into art. It's amazing the connection you make with it. Lets look at art history and see where it took me to write this song. 

I started out with artwork, then Rebecca Campbell's mystic power, then I turned to The Cranberries, which is where I ended up.


Song

The power outside of our hands
That we fight so hard to visualize 
And in this we find ourselves trapped
In order to get there

That can lead us to the most open realm
Dropping, falling, leaping are in our thoughts
As we open our hands to recieive 
What is meant to come to us

Sometimes it's a place outside of ourselves
Or just outside of our control
It's within I'm told
I'm sure

Tell me how you want me to help you
I see your lips
I read your eyes
Your pain is mine
Why

I'm meant to be here
So I don't die
But listen to you
And your message to me

But how did I miss you
Listening to you so long 
Bringing me comfort
As I never took your hand 
Now you're gone

So many years down the road
My head cracked for everyone to see
I can see how I could have been there for you

I still listen to you today
As I skip the cement road 
behind my house
Like a little girl
Drinking your words
Soaking the wisdom
It was just like yesterday 

(Haven't quite picked a chorus yet.)
