Song Lyrics I

Song Lyrics I "We Came Together" was written as song lyrics for New Zealand composer David Hamilton. Song Lyrics: We Came Together by Michael R. Burch We came together – people of two lands so unalike, at first, we hardly knew how to be friends. We went to war, and drew lines in the sand. And yet the sky was blue for everyone, and big enough to share. We came together, and our friendships grew. We had to learn to share the selfsame air, to find the path to harmony, to find some common ground and let peace bloom. We came together and we gave hope room Song Lyrics: Will There Be Starlight by Michael R. Burch Will there be starlight tonight while she gathers damask and lilac and sweet-scented heathers? And will she find flowers, or will she find thorns guarding the petals of roses unborn? Will there be starlight tonight while she gathers seashells and mussels and albatross feathers? And will she find treasure or will she find pain at the end of this rainbow of moonlight on rain? to blossom in our hearts. We learned to be together in our common destiny. We come together – people of many lands so unalike, at first, and now we know how to be friends. Song Lyrics: Where Does the Butterfly Go? by Michael R. Burch Where does the butterfly go when lightning rails, when thunder howls, when hailstones scream, when winter scowls, when nights compound dark frosts with snow ... Where does the butterfly go? Where does the rose hide its bloom when night descends oblique and chill beyond the capacity of moonlight to fill? When the only relief's a banked fire's glow, where does the butterfly go? And where shall the spirit flee when life is harsh, too harsh to face, and hope is lost without a trace? Oh, when the light of life runs low, where does the butterfly go?

(The music remains melancholy.) I pray by day that, come what may, no dark thing confound you. (With the last two lines, the music becomes brighter, more hopeful, and if possible, heavenly.) I pray ere the morrow an end to your sorrow. May angels' white chorales sing, and astound you. Copyright © 2006 by Michael R.
