Hey My Friend - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

Hey My Friend Lyrics and music: THE RED   Hey, my friend! You might have had good reasons Or none my friend, maybe you were so surprised To leave it there, leaving me and other sons Hey, my friend! did you forget to warn? Hey, my friend! Have you been to all places? You wanted to see, you wanted to be? Have you seen it all, for this time? Have you played all your aces? Good bye, my friend! Be free!   Nobody knows but you, the travel you did Nobody knows but you, the travel you’ll do   Hey, my friend! You were the one I trusted Side by side so many times Now you’re gone, feeling emptied I know: you were not in your prime Hey, my friend! Have you been to all places? You wanted to see, you wanted to be? Have you seen it all, for this time? Have you played...

The time I’ve lost in wooing - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

The time I’ve lost in wooing Lyrics from Thomas Moore Music: THE RED The time I’ve lost in wooing, In watching and pursuing The light, that lies In woman’s eyes, Has been my heart’s undoing. Though Wisdom oft has sought me, I scorn’d the lore she brought me, My only books Were woman’s looks, And folly’s all they’ve taught me.   But while her eyes were on me, If once their ray Was turn’d away, Oh! winds could not outrun me.   Her smile when Beauty granted, I hung with gaze enchanted, Like him the Sprite, Whom maids by night Oft meet in glen that’s haunted. Like him, too, Beauty won me, But while her eyes were on me, If once their ray Was turn’d away, Oh! winds could not outrun me.   But while her eyes were on me, If once their ray Was turn’d...

The Ballad of Reading Gaol - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

The Ballad of Reading Gaol Lyrics from Oscar Wilde Music:THE RED He walked amongst the Trial Men   In a suit of shabby grey; A cricket cap was on his head,   And his step seemed light and gay; But I never saw a man who looked   So wistfully at the day.   I never saw a man who looked   With such a wistful eye Upon that little tent of blue   Which prisoners call the sky, And at every drifting cloud that went   With sails of silver by.   In Reading gaol by Reading town   There is a pit of shame, And in it lies a wretched man   Eaten by teeth of flame, In burning winding-sheet he lies,   And his grave has got no name.   I only knew what hunted thought   Quickened his step, and why He looked upon the...

Whatever Says the Clock - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

Whatever Says the Clock Lyrics and Music: THE RED   Trust me darling, if your true young beauty and charms Which I surely adore and so much praise today Were to vanish a day as they will fly away I would still adore you and protect you in my arms   To my heart you’re forever, whatever says the clock To my heart you’re forever, whatever damn says the clock   Let’s get teens fade and flee if it’s meant to be so What though young loveliness shy away from our face? All veneers on our lives are they making our grace? Oh, my love sees your soul and that’s all what I know   To my heart you’re forever, whatever says the clock To my heart you’re forever, whatever damn says the clock   No sorrow could dim my love, as enshrined in my heart No regret to...

The Itinerant Singing Girl - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

The Itinerant Singing Girl Lyrics from Lady Jane Wilde Music: THE RED   Fatherless and motherless, no brothers have I, And all my little sisters in the cold grave lie; Wasted with hunger I saw them falling dead Lonely and bitter are the tears I shed.   Friendless and loverless, I wander to and fro, Singing while my faint heart is breaking fast with woe, Smiling in my sorrow, and singing for my bread Lonely and bitter are the tears I shed.   Harp clang and merry song by stranger door and board, None ask wherefore tremble my pale lips at each word; None care why the colour from my wan cheek has fled Lonely and bitter are the tears I shed.   Smiling and singing still, tho' hunger, want, and woe, Freeze the young life‐current in my veins as I go;...

The Martyr - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

The Martyr Indicative of the passion of the people on the 15th of April, 1865 Lyrics from Herman Melville Music: THE RED Good Friday was the day     Of the prodigy and crime, When they killed him in his pity,     When they killed him in his prime Of clemency and calm—          When with yearning he was filled          To redeem the evil-willed, And, though conqueror, be kind;     But they killed him in his kindness,     In their madness and their blindness, And they killed him from behind.                 There is sobbing of the strong,...

The Lake Isle of Innisfree - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

The Lake Isle of Innisfree Lyrics from William Butler Yeats Music: THE RED   I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made; Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade.   While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core.   And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet’s wings.   While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core.   I will arise and go now, for always night and day I...

Freedom - 08/25/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

Freedom Lyrics from George William Russell Music: THE RED I WILL not follow you, my bird,      I will not follow you.       I would not breathe a word, my bird,    To bring thee here anew.         Where in the light outpoured, my bird,        Are love and freedom too.   I love the free in thee, my bird,      The lure of freedom drew;     The light you fly toward, my bird,  I fly with thee unto.           Where in the light outpoured, my bird,        Are love and freedom too.   And there we yet...

Corinne’s Last Love-Song - 08/24/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

From the album Whatever Says the Clock Corinne’s Last Love-Song Lyrics from Lady Jane Wilde Music: THE RED   How beautiful, how beautiful you streamed upon my sight, In glory and in grandeur, as a gorgeous sunset‐light! How softly, soul‐subduing, fell your words upon mine ear, Like low aerial music when some angel hovers near!   Oh! love is frantic agony, and life one throb of pain; Yet I would bear its darkest woes to dream that dream again.   What tremulous, faint ecstasy to clasp your hand in mine, Till the darkness fell upon me of a glory too divine! The air around grew languid with our intermingled breath, And in your beauty’s shadow I sank motionless as death.   Oh! love is frantic agony, and life one throb of pain; Yet I would bear its...

If We Must Die - 08/24/2020 | THE RED OFFICIAL

From Whatever Says the Clock album If We Must Die Lyrics from Claude McKay Music: THE RED   If we must die, let it not be like hogs Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot, While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs, Making their mock at our accursed lot.   Like men we’ll face the murderous, cowardly pack, Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!   If we must die, O let us nobly die, So that our precious blood may not be shed In vain; then even the monsters we defy Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!   Like men we’ll face the murderous, cowardly pack, Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!   O kinsmen! we must meet the common foe! Though far outnumbered let us show us brave, And for their thousand blows deal one...
