Cast a Stone

Jesse Colin Young and Connie Darden Young

Cast a stone in the water ,
See the ripples spread out
Feel the pain of not knowing,
Hear the sirens that shout
Is a loved one in danger ,
Or a neighbor in doubt
Cast a stone in the water,
See the ripples spread out...Cast a stone

We are witnesses to evil,
Miles and miles from the fray
On and on they replay it,
While we hope, while we pray
Yes the poison is spreading
in our hearts there?s no doubt
Cast a stone on the water
See the ripples spread out?.Cast a stone

Now the criminal is cornered
He is wounded, he's down
And the roar from those gathered
Is a frightening sound
While our fear and our anger
Feed the rage as we shout
Cast a stone in the water
See the ripples spread out...Cast a Stone
See the Ripples spread out, Cast A Stone, Cast a Stone

Album Lyrics Walk the Talk | Jesse Colin Young

Walk the Talk

Talking 'bout love, Lets talk about love

Are you tired of the struggle for money and fame
You let vanity rule you, it will drive you insane
Right here in the garden we have chosen to live
It's not what you can get my brother, 
it's about what you can give

We're talkin' bout love, 
Let's talk about love
Must be time we learned 
to walk our talk about love

I was lost in the desert of sorrow and pain
I was thirsty for something I could not name
There is water a plenty, the oasis is near
So drink deep from the sacred spring my friend 
and release all our fear

We're talkin' bout love, 
Let's talk about love
Must be time we learned 
To walk our talk about love

Do you think you see darkness, my friend open you eyes
This is not an illusion, this is life's greatest prize
It's the water of life, in a free flowin' stream, 
It will pour through your spirit, 
it will wash your soul clean

We're talkin' bout love, 
Let's talk about love
Must be time we learned 
To walk our talk about love

Shape Shifters

Look at them Shape Shifters, Truth Twisters
Here they come parading on the news
Look at them Shape Shifters, Virtue Drifters
Bringing their latest version of the Blues

Look at them Shape Shifters, Power Lifters
They work so hard to confuse
How 'bout the Shape Shifters, Seasoned Grifters
If lies can win, we're bound to lose
If lies can win, we're bound to lose

Here come the liars, see them pose
Wearing their climate denier clothes
Texas is flooded, Puerto Rico tore up
Look at them strut their stuff

Look at them Shape Shifters, Swamp Sifters
We should see right through their poison game
Look at them Shape Shifters, Burn and Blister
Heat 'em up Boy , they tell you who's to blame

Hear them gasp, hear them growl
Bending the truth till they make you howl
Vicious, specious, ah fictitious,
They've got the dirt that's so delicious

Look at them Shape Shifters, Truth Twisters
They work so hard to confuse
How 'bout the Shape Shifters, Malicious Whispers
If lies can win, we're bound to lose
If lies can win, we're bound to lose
If lies can win, we're bound to lose

For Orlando

Just communing with earth and sky, 
Need these mountains to get me high
In my sorrow, I want to fly away
Far above all my human kind, 
Some are hateful and some are blind
Some are evil and lead their flocks astray

How do we face disaster? 
Bitterness, what comes after?
How do we fill the emptiness we feel?
How do we face tomorrow? 
Where do we put our sorrow?
How do we find the loving strength to heal?

Break out your light, 
Break out your golden light
Let it be your strength, 
your shield to face the day
Bring on your tears,  
Bring on your mournful tears  
Let their sweet release wash the bitter taste away, 
Break out your light
Break out your light

Just communing with earth and sky
Senseless violence caught my eye
Brokenhearted I will not turn away
I walked it out with a few new friends
This is how the confusion ends
If we walk together, we shall find a way

We need to love each other
Every sister/brother
Fearlessly we could open up our hearts
Love is an angel’s weapon, 
Just think of what might happen
We’d come together, 
Not be torn apart

Break out you light, 
Break out your golden light 
Let it be your strength, 
Your shield to face the day
Bring on your tears, 
Bring on your mournful tears
Let the sweet release wash the bitter taste away    
Break out your light,   
Break out your light      
Break out your Ligh

Album Lyrics Take me to the River | Jesse Colin Young

Take me to the River

Take me to the river, take me to the sea
Let your love come tumblin’ down on me
Take me to the ocean, set me swimmin’ free
Your love is like the water rushin’ over me 
 
Midnight skinny dippin’ in a deep lagoon
Your body wet and glistenin’ in the Hanalei moon
Sweet and salty kisses, soft and tender sighs
Your smile is like the moonlight on the rising tide
 
Waterfalls are whisperin’ in the secret pools
Hear them tell the lovers to break all the rules
The beach goes on forever, the river’s bound to flood
Desire’s like a fever burnin’ in my blood 
 
Take me to the river, take me to the sea
Let your love come tumblin’ down on me
Take me to the ocean, set me swimmin’ free
Your love is like the water, rushin’ over me 
   
Let me be your lover, let me be your friend
Stay with me until the sweet or bitter end
Don’t take me for granted, open up your heart
Love and us together, that’s the sweetest part 
 
Won’t you take me, take me, won’t you take me To the river 
Won’t you take me, take me, won’t you take me To the river
Take me, won’t you take me, your love is like the water rushin’ over me

They Were Dreamers

Some from the Netherlands made it alive
Dreaming of freedom to worship and thrive
Chief Massasoit he helped them survive
They were dreamers
 
Families from Germany fleeing a war
Sent by their King to Canadian shores
Builders of ships in love with the sea
So through my Grandma their strength came to me
They were dreamers
 
Scottish and Irish blood runs in my veins 
Hungry and longing for freedom they came
Bringing the Celtic born reels and refrains
They were dreamers
I’m a dreamer
 
Don’t turn your back on the dreamers
Dreams make our country strong
Turning your back would be wicked
Welcome them here they belong
Now let the dreamers dream on
 
All of us carry gifts from those before
They came here hoping their lives could more
We are so lucky they opened the door 
for the Dreamers
 
Let us rejoice that we have common scars
Our families traveled so hard and so far
Black and white, red and brown rainbows we are
We are dreamers, we are dreamers
 
Don’t turn your back on the dreamers
Dreams make our Country strong
Turning them out would be wicked
Welcome them here they belong
Yes let the dreamers dream on
 
Don’t turn your back on the dreamers
Dreams make our Country strong
Turning them out would be foolish
Welcome them here they belong
Yes let the dreamers dream on
They are Dreamers | Jesse Colin Young

Cruising at Sunset

Come on babe, let's put the top down
take the back roads where there ain’t no body else around
We'll let it loose then we can mellow down
These summer nights are the best that can be found

Crusin' at sunset, Technicolor mindset, 
Crusin' at sunset… with you

Come on babe, let's let our hair down
We been uptight, time that we were unwound
We got all night, ain’t no need to go to town
just light your smile, bound to lose that frown

Crusin' at sunset, Technicolor mindset
Surfin' on the heartnet , Romance is the best bet 
Crusin….crusin'….crusin' with you

Those summer nights, in paradise, they are the best
You can keep all the rest 
They are the best, you can keep all the rest…all the rest

Dream your dreams, we’ll put ‘em into action
We can’t miss, no not by a fraction
We’ll slip and slide till we find some traction
Guaranteed we’re gonna’ get some satisfaction

Crusin’ at sunset, Technicolor mindset
Surfin’ on the heartnet , Romance is the best bet 
Crusin’… Crusin’… Crusin’…with you
Come on babe let’s put the top down,
lord it’s a beautiful night….
Yes it’s time to go crusin’ with You

Lyme Life

When I wake tomorrow morning, who will I be
A man who’s strong and willing or lost and angry?
Someone’s cherished lover or my lover’s enemy?
Ah this Lyme life, cuts like a dull knife
Ah this Lyme life, the shadow left is me
 
I loved the woods and the wildest places
I made trails there that left no traces
Followed them to the oceans roar
Who on earth could have asked for more?
I spoke with seals and the white deer running
Hawks and owls and a cougar cunning
Breathed with dolphins as they swam by
Blood red sunset in my eyes
 
And when I wake tomorrow morning, will I be alone?
A man with spark and humor, or wits as dull as stone
Will my body then betray me and tremble to the bone?
Ah this Lyme life, cuts like a dull knife
Ah this Lyme life, the shadow left is me
 
So much to learn, where do I turn
Now that I’ve lost my health, my sanity
I’m angry, I’m sad, I’m frightened, I’m mad
Feeling the bite of inhumanity
 
When I wake tomorrow morning, who will I be
A man who’s strong and willing or lost and angry?
Someone’s cherished lover or my lover’s enemy?
Ah this Lyme life, cuts like a dull knife
Ah this Lyme life, where is my sweet life?
Ah this Lyme life, the shadow left is me

Here Comes the Night

I love you, I love you and how I will miss you
It hurts me, it hurts me when you go away
I want you, I want you to fly like an Eagle,
Don’t make me wait, not one more day
 
Cause here comes the night 
 
I know that, I know that my bed will be empty
And I know that you’ll know that emptiness too
Your dreamin’, your dreamin’ has taken you from me
Get all you need, make your dreamin’ come true
 
Here comes the night, my heart is calling
Calling the wind to wing you to me
Here comes the night, the stars are fallin’
I’ve fallen for you, are you’ve fallen for me
Here comes the night,
   
I’ll hold you, you know I’ll hold you so sweetly
When I have, I have you back in my arms
The tenderness, tenderness wells up inside me
When I can feel you are safe from all harm
 
 And Here comes the night, my heart is calling
Calling the rain, and calling the dew
Here comes the night, the stars are falling You’re falling for me and I’m falling for you and Here comes the night

For My Sisters

This is a song for my sisters, Just to let you know that I’m here
This is a song for resisters, and all that we hold dear
A world where everyone’s welcome, and all our voices are heard
And though darkness surrounds us  
We feel the love that has bound us
 
We won’t take it anymore, 
you can’t fake it anymore
Time to even up the score, 
Don’t mistake it, we won’t take it anymore

When I watched your millions marching
it soothed my wounded soul
Your joy, your hope, your passion, 
your pink and perfect fashion
And though my heart was broken, 
I heard your words unspoken

We won’t take it anymore,                  
you can’t fake it anymore
Time to even up the score,
Don’t mistake it,  we won’t take it anymore  

This is a song for my sisters, Just to let you know that I’m here
This is a song for resisters, and all that we hold dear
A world where everyone’s welcome, and all our voices are heard
And though darkness surrounds us  
We feel the love that has bound us

We won’t take it anymore,                  
you can’t fake it anymore
Time to even up the score,
Don’t mistake it,  we won’t take it anymore 

While Texas is Drowning

While Texas is downing,
Is there no one who's listening?

To The Voice Of Our Mother, 
To The Cries And Petitiioning

So Many Are Homeless, 
So Many Are Hungry
So Many Dreams Shattered, 
So Many Hopes Drowned

So Many Hearts Broken, 
Too Many Words Spoken
No Roofs On Our Houses, 
We Sleep On The Ground

Are We Deaf, Are We Blind, 
Are We Out Of Our Mind?
Leave Our Friends And Companions 
In Such A Tight Bind? 

Let Us Reach For Connection, 
Be People Of Action
No Empty Promise, 
Just The Strength Of Our Arms

Cause The Climate Is Changing 
And We All Need Protection

That’s Enough Of Deflection 
And Political Charm 

Are We Deaf, Are We Blind, 
Are We Out Of Our Mind?
Will We Make The Hard Choices 
Or Be Left Behind?

While Texas Is Drowing, 
And The West Coast Is Burning
Our Mother Is Teaching, 
Are We Hiding Or Learning?

We Are In This Together, 
No Matter The Reasons
There ‘Re No Angels Or Demons, 
It’s Just Me And You 
There ’Re No Angels Or Demons, 
It’s Just Me And You

One More Time

Let’s crank up the volume, let the music flow
This is why we came here, this is what we know
Hold the message steady, play it from your heart
We were 8 now we are one, let the magic start

Hear angelic voices, music of the spheres
Rapt attention, deep devotion, laughter, love and tears
Wisdom, joy and sorrow, opens up the heart
We’ve let loose the sound of thunder, Let the lighting start

One more time…….one shining rhyme
Just let it go, this is our night, let’s get it right!

One more time with feeling, once before the road
Though the miles are many, blessings are bestowed
Lift the spirit higher, make the rafters ring
Sacred space for joy and grace, hear the people sing

One more time…….one shining rhyme
Just let it go, this is our night, let’s get it right!

One more time with feeling, once before the road
Though the miles are many, blessings are bestowed
Lift the spirit higher, make the rafters ring
Sacred space for joy and grace, hear the people sing

On and On

Being a lover goes on and on
You hold each other when things go wrong  
You celebrate when you get it right 
Dream you dreams together in bed each night
Raise a family, you build a home
You know that when you’re hurtin’, you’re not alone
                 
On and on and on and on, 
love goes on and on and on
 
Being a father goes on and on
You hope your kids can see right from wrong
You watch them stumble, you watch them fly
Your heart’s in your mouth and you wonder why
You try to be there when they’re in pain
And help them back to the rhythm of life again
 
On and on and on and on,  
love goes on and on and on
On and on and on and on
Love goes on and on and on 
 
Being a farmer goes on and on
One crop in and the other still growin’
Work with the earth in the rain and sun
Gather her fruits to feed your young
Pray to the Goddess when the farm gets dry
You know your love of Hawaii will never die
 
Then your hair turns silver, you start getting’ old
Just think of the stories that you have told
Grandchildren clustered around your knee if you’re lucky
And the stories they go on and on
Through the night till the break of dawn
They’ll still be telling  ‘em when you’re dead and gone
If you’re lucky
 
And your love of life, it goes on and on
Even when your youth and your strength is gone
Though your face in the mirror looks a little worn

Look Over Yonder

Look over yonder, see my freedom come
Look over yonder, see my freedom come
All this worry and trouble,  sure ain’t gonna help me none   

 Way I’ve been walkin’, seems like a dark, cold Night
Way I’ve been walkin’, seems like a dark, cold Night
Things I’ve been thinkin’ give my poor heart such a fright

I’ve been a prisoner, Lord I have been a slave
I’ve been a prisoner, Lord I have been a slave
If you let fear rule you, drive you to your grave 

Thunder and lightening and the sky turned dark as night
Thunder and lightening and the sky turned dark as night
Livin’ in the darkness, Lord it don’t feel right

Look over yonder, see my freedom on the rise
Look over yonder, see my freedom on the rise
I’ve been hangin’ my head in sorrow, sure is time to lift my eyes
Look over yonder, see my freedom come

Look over yonder, see my freedom come       
Praise for creation, it shall be on my tongue

Look over yonder, Look over yonder
Praise for Creation,  it shall be on my tongue

Everybody get together, try to love one another right now.
