Kashmir by Led Zeppelin

Lyrics:

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear
Oh, oh.

Oh, I been flying… mama, there aint no denyin
Ive been flying, aint no denyin, no denyin

All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
Trying to find, trying to find where Ive been.

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream
My shangri-la beneath the summer moon, I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear
Ohh.

When Im on, when Im on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when Im down…
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well Im down, so down
Ooh, my baby, ooooh, my baby, let me take you there

Let me take you there. let me take you there

Summer, 2013: I absolutely love the beautiful music of SLIGO CREEK – Al Petteway & Amy White

All of the music on this site carries wonderful memories of the corresponding times of my life, going back to around 1974.  SLIGO CREEK  resonates with the beauty, transcendence, harmony, light, revelations, miracles and joy I’ve experienced in this existence, and the gratitude I have for those incredible gifts! Often, throughout my life, I’ve been asked: “You’re always smiling and happy, why is that?” My response was always: “I have an apartment, a bed to sleep in, clothes, food, hobbies, and great friends. I live in NYC; to me, the most incredible city in the world! I’m very happy and grateful for this; what more do I need?”
