Mid to up- tempo groove. A yearning to connect to a story that is all-inclusive, beyond dogma and doctrine. Inspired by Joeseph Campbell with a nod to William Blake.
The Story I can Hear (inspired by Joseph Campbell) Music and Lyrics The Levins, © 2019
If we see it all as literal it might end up in a fight,
But if we see it as a story, it might work out alright. Alright!
Let's go out to meet the modern, willing to embrace
See the gold inside the dust... Be the change that's taking place. Hey hey!
Pre chorus : I long to tell the story I can hear. One that fills my eyes, opens up the skies. Chorus: Not just for believers or those that think it's true-
But that holds me in its arms as it reaches out for you. Reaching out. Reaches out for you.
Something beyond name - something beyond measure
Sings inside this temporal house built of pain and pleasure.
Inside understanding shines the poet's rhyme:
"Eternity is in love with the productions of time.*” Alright (*- William Blake)
Pre chorus and Chorus:
Bridge: We’re busy telling stories, Meanwhile life plays on.
It’s listening to our verses It sings all of our songs - One song / our songs Sings all of our songs. One song/ Our songs. Chorus
