raise this song up, sing in praise

be like beacons bright inspired

from the hills and steepled spires

arm in arm and hand in hand

I’m Just An Old Man ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

 

I’m just an old man

Whose forgot everything

But Am I an Old Man

Who can still sing

 

If I open my mouth will

The music come out still

 

I’m just an old man

But can I still sing

 

I seem to remember

Just how this feels

To breathe in some still air

And exhale it at will

 

To turn and shape phrases

To be playfully singing

Just what I’m Feeling

In sweet melodies

 

Someone once taught me

To love and to like

And once learned

Singing is like riding a bike

 

To turn and shape phrases

To playfully find notes

 

I’m just an old man

Who can still sing!

We Must Climb ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

sometimes, we must climb

slowly, rung by rung

doing, what must be done

 

all easier once begun

each step right there

in it's own time

 

climb, yes we must climb

sometimes

(Repeat as duet)

sometimes, we must climb

slowly, rung by rung

doing, what must be done

 

all easier once begun

each step right there

in it's own time

 

climb, yes we must climb

climb

climb

sometimes

Wouldn’t be Couldn’t be ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

It just couldn’t be

It just wouldn’t be

It just wouldn’t be - couldn’t be

 

How could this all be

why would this all be

no more lost not found let me downs

things like this don’t happen to me

 

It's no negative stance

Im not into chance

perfect pure and fine – cut & dry

 

Love & Romance

Whistful Circumstance

It's too late to try - I wont cry

things like this don’t happen to me

 

Sunrise to the east

stones thrown always falls

These things I can see therefore always believe

Theres hardly a reason to test - stars will set to the west

These are the truly real things left for me

This just wouldn't be, couldn't be, shouldn't be true

 

t just couldn’t be

It just wouldn’t be

It just couldn’t be - wouldn’t be

 

How could this all be

why would this all be

no more lost not found let me downs

things like this don’t happen to me

 

Its so plain to see

all is said and been

Not one fortuned wheel - turned for me

 

Magic, Fantasies

Luck, Alchemy

Why do people believe in the things they cant see

Why would this ever happen to me

 

           

Sunrise to the east

stones thrown always falls

These things I can see therefore always believe

Theres hardly a reason to test - stars will set to the west

These are the truly real things left for me

 

If touching you in a dream

isn't real as it seems

if not now, how about then?

if time can steal, is a memory real?

what can be believed?

why go back to retrieve?

 

It just couldn’t be

It just wouldn’t be

It just couldn’t be - wouldn’t be

 

How could this all be

why would this all be

no more lost not found let me downs

things like this don’t happen to me

 

What's it all been?

There couldn't be more

People just don't show up at my door

There is nothing more

Seen it all before

Under the sun nothing is new

 

It just wouldn't be, couldn't be,

wouldn't be couldn't be true

 

It just couldn't be

it just wouldn't be

it just couldn't be, wouldn't be, shouldn't be…

but it is.

Man Of Means ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

(coming out of the bank…)

My pockets are lined with much lined with much more than a dime

I reached in as a stint and felt no-thing but lint.

Now I simply confide, there's much more still inside

Yes I’m a man of means

I’m----

So hungry now for what-I’ve al-ways wished

One juicy steak-at the top of my list

Filet and fine wine, it's my time to dine

Yes I’m a man of means

 

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la  /  la…la…la

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la-la

There’s good reason for me to sing

I can now have everything

Say good-bye to want and needs,

‘Cause means so it seems is not just a dream

Means so it seems grants me everything

Seems I’m a man of means

 

(noticing himself in the bank window…)

 

See my reflection all tattered in stitches

First I will buy some pressed shirts, britches

Time to start living and looking the part

Just wait and see the real me

Diamonds, yes this is I’ll buy all my wishes

For now it's all mine once taunted now flaunt-ed

Get me a fine cane, a crutch, and my freedom

I’ll have all I wanted

 

(disappearing into the tailor shop...)

 

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la  /  la…la…la

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la-la

There’s good reason for me to sing

I can now have everything

Say good-bye to wants and needs

'Cause means so it seems grants me everything

Means so it seems is not just a dream

Seems I’m a man of means

 

(emerging dressed in top hat, silk tie, fine shoes, gold vest...)

 

Top hat and silk tie, fine shoes and gold vest

Who could deny that I’m dressed for success?

And if you think on my own I compiled this

No, I just went out and bought me a stylist!

 

On top of this cane are shin-y bright diamonds

Shine with a reason, this crutch is my freedom

So many glittering gems of all kinds

I couldn't make up my mind!

 

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la  /  la…la…la

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la-la  la-la-la-la

 

(suddenly noticing travel agency…)

 

I’ve al-ways want-ed to sail on a ship

What could be finer than an ocean liner?

These eyes will finely see Monte and Belize

I’m a man of the world now

 

I’ll be called "sir" by monsieurs and madams

Bow to fine ladies fair in Times Square

On to climates moister, the world is my oyster

At last I’ll walk with class

 

After my tour I’ll build me a fine home

Curtains with tassels a castle: white-stones

When I get back there'll be more than a shack

Yeah I’m a man of means

 

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la,  /  la…la…la

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la-la

There’s good reason for me to sing

I can now have everything

Say good-bye to wants and needs

'Cause means so it seems is not just a dream

Means so it seems grants me everything

Seems I’m a man of means

 

(buying items from street vendors…)

 

Trinkets and baubles, I’ll buy me some gifts

Now I can simply make every day Christmas

Who could limit these gifts to just one day?

Not a man of means!

 

There’s good reason for me to sing I can now have everything….

 

(in front of restaurant…)

 

You'd think after shopping this wanting be banished

May-be it's just that I’m hungry, famished!

After a real meal I know I’ll feel fine - yes it's time to dine!

 

Each night that restaurant’s smells teased me and taunted

Now I will enter and have all I wanted

No more thrice brewed coffee for me -

English cream poured into fine tea.

 

No more two week old bread, or watery stews

Now it's beef bourguignon topped by tiramisu

Sipping and drink fine wines un-constrained

Sherries, ports, and champagne

 

I’ll have everything, all the ones that I’ve longed for

Lobster, shrimp, veal, of course chicken pomodor(o)

When I am done it'll be like a dream

Yes I’m a man

Yes I’m a man

A most capable, graceful and chase able man!

A finely dressed, top hat and cane able man!

 

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la,  /  la…la…la

la la la   /  la la la   /  la la la-la

(trailing off…)

 

I bought boxes, bought baubles, bought all I was able

Bought trinkets and gad-gets and a real kitchen table

Bought toys, watches, rings, tasted every fine food

So why is it that I’m not feeling so good?

 

This day's almost over, so slowly I'll creep

Back to my room for a warm bath, and sleep

Dreaming away all clean in silk sheets

Yes, I’m a (yawning) man of means...

Wreath Song ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

hang a wreath upon the door

so all who come will see the beauty

of this simple wreath….

 

bend the branches, bend not break

and then we lay them weaving

one by one to make them strong

as we sing this song

 

forever we like them entwine

in harmony joining round to bind

and holding onto others easily bend

our circles with no start or end

 

round wreath round, red green and gold

our wreaths like rings are lovely things

once the meaning's known

round and round a circle closed

the end is the beginning

the further round the closer home

 

hang upon them bows and bells

so all who come will see the splendor

of our simple wreaths

while shaping them we sing

 

 when the ones that we await

come through the door we'll hear the bells

and know that those we love are home and still

all places at the table filled

 

round wreath round, red green and gold

our wreaths like rings are lovely things

once the meaning's known

round and round a circle closed

the end is the beginning

the further round the closer home

(repeat)

Mended Hearts ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

There is a mark

Upon us Both

There is a tie

And There’s a bond

 

When it is dark

You’ll always know

That it is I

By what’s upon us

 

Together is our place forever

Tomorrow can’t tear us apart

Yesterday tried

No one can untie

What’s been joined right from the start

Together we will be always

No sorrow can tear us apart

Yesterday tried

And so on this day we can finally say

We have been rejoined – these mended hearts


So close now

I see your face

Touch your hand

Where once was space

 

Now let our smiles

Be like new marks

Put on us by

These mended hearts

 

Together is our place forever

Tomorrow can’t tear us apart

Yesterday tried

No one can untie

What’s been joined right from the start

Together we will be always

No sorrow can tear us apart

Yesterday tried

And so on this day we can finally say

We have been rejoined – these mended hearts

Work First ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

when we walk a path

but something's in the way

work hard to remove it

there'll be time for play

 

when we have a choice

of how to spend the day

work now or to simply

move straight into play

 

work hard to be better

play hard once you're done

free time for the future

somehow play's more fun

when you play before you work

the whole thing is reversed

so follow these two simple words:

WORK FIRST!

 

if we let things go

clear the path then play

piles soon will grow

work first then we'll play

 

getting things done now

will free another day

work now and then simply

move straight into play

 

work hard to be better

play hard once you're done

free time for the future

somehow play's more fun

when you play before you work

the whole thing is reversed

the blessing has been cursed

so follow these two simple words:

WORK FIRST!

 

rolling up your sleeves

what you can achieve

and when all is done

somehow play's more fun

 

 

getting things done now

will free another day

work now and then simply

move straight into play

 

work hard to be better

play hard once you're done

free time for the future

somehow play's more fun

when you play before you work

the whole thing is reversed

the blessing has been cursed

so follow these two simple words

don't take a wrong turn for the worse

dinner first and then dessert,

just as we rehearsed--

follow these two simple words:

WORK FIRST!

Now That Its Over ©

Norian/Boznos Productions 2015

 

Here at the station, anticipation

No one to meet me & she should be here

What is this day for

How is this over

Why did she have to say she would be here

 

Start making the change

Stop craving our world

Start living without

 

Was it ever

Will I forever feel

 

Start erasing time

 

Fresh clothes I’ll put on

Pleasantries I’ll don

What else can I do now that she’s gone

 

Buried in boxes

I’ll put on top this

A tight fitting cover

Pretend its not here

 

I’ll say I’m okay

Pretend I’m not hurt

I’ll stand here like steel

And temper in time

I’ll erase your stamp

Stop playing our songs

And life will go on

 

I just need some time

I loved you so strong

I just need some time

I loved you so strong

 

In time I’ll remake me

Till then I’ll just fake me

What else can I do, What else can I do, Now that its over today

The Greatest Gift ©

6-1-15 Boznos

 

Yes there are some things needing tending
There's always something on the list
But now I'm coming to the ending knowing there's not much I've missed

I wouldn't change one thing about this
If stayed the same, might not have found it:
What we get we end up giving
And what we give we end up getting

All round and round
A circle found
Our wreaths like rings are lovely things
the greatest gifts

The greatest gift is found in giving
The greatest gift is truly living

In times when blind I surely doubted
The gifts were mine, you see: I found you

And if I strayed you stayed right here beside me, waiting, just to give


The greatest gift is found in giving
The greatest gift is truly living
Were free to choose and help each other
How can I lose, you see: I found you

And at the end we see things meant to be
I know you’ve given  me the greatest...

Loves the greatest gift…


Loves the greatest gift:
What you give you'll surely get

  
What you get your give


Loves the greatest gift


LOVE - What you get you give

LOVE’S the greatest gift of all
