Lyrics

We all know our place into Heaven's Grace (Those with spiritual truth) and how do we act upon this in this place? (What do we do with our gifts?) What is a soul if it does not do what it is told? (If being directed by your God are you Doing?) Do we go around blind and bold? (Think we know our own way without divine guidance) I go through life thinking the best of everyone can be achieved if we only Believe. (Perhaps I'm too loving here... But I like to see the good in everyone and everything - its really beautiful) Stop thinking toward the wrongs that we have had against us. (Learn forgiveness and what it is to be forgiven and accept it) And I believe in the good in all the world in the people and the.. the fishes in the sea, the mammals that we have, some plenty and those that are verging on extinction through our own greed to survive... ( I believe that there are more caring people that will stand for the innocence of animals and fight for their survival) So sad the plight we've been forced to and backed into a corner (the lobbyists tiring efforts to rig the world against the common person) poverty is only so wicked and its a hammer we're being nailed to multitudes of crosses, (We are scourging to survive to make our way to feed our families) the earth is screaming (Earthquakes and scary out of the normal weather) our resources are being de-plentied. (All the earths Oil, Natural Gas, LAND, Animals, Trees, Soil, Fish and Whales are being TAKEN by those THAT CAN) We are all to be blamed if we don't stand its our shame. (What are you going to do to help make a difference?) There are more poor than rich but where are we in our voice? (Politics are for and designed by the RICH) We are just so silent and we watch the world get chocked from greedy people and agendas.(We all are wittennes to corporate wall street greed which has proven knows no boundaries when a buck can be made - a blind sickness to most) When will we speak for the children and the animals of this world that God created for beauty in you and me? (When will the multitudes of good people stand up for what is right in this world and take it back from the greedy for the good of the planet) WE got to start somewhere, We got to start somewhere, We got to start somewhere... (Well what are you waiting for? When its too late?)

Story

Chickadee - Copyright: 2010  by: Steven Dwight Longe

Chickadee was inspired by my wife Rebecca.  Upon hearing her reveal that the Chickadee was her favorite bird, I began noticing Chickadees around our home.  To me they were just birds in my mind, but after I new the identity of the Chickadee I began noticing them everywhere in the home.  Salt and Pepper Shakers - Chickadee's.  A hand painted picture gift to Rebecca on the wall - Yep - A Chickadee!  Later that winter on on sub zero weather day and a practice session in my living room I hit the record button.  While I was watching the bird feeder and all the Chickadees eating seed and flying to and fro I captured the Chickadee's flight and movements while breaking into seeds.  I hope you take the time to really listen - close your eyes and picture the Chickadee in motion!

Chickadee is an Acoustic Instrumental played on my Taylor 814-ce.

This song was created through my memories as a child of a divorce I witnessed and the heartbreak it caused.

Even though you said, that you would love me forever and,

I wish I thought you meant, that you’d love me forever and,

wish I thought you meant, that you’d take care of me when sick,
wish I thought you meant that you actually loved me.
And a - I,

So here the hell I am standing and wondering what happened to us, So here the hell I am thinking about you, So here I am piecing my life together once more, So here I am learning to live on my own
And a - I,

And You Know

A song about Love and wondering if it is going to last.  

In my case, I have been married over 20 years now and its a Love that will last!

Lyrics

Copyright: 2009  by: Steven Dwight Longe

 

During this night before I sleep.. I turn to look at her in her beauty... Her silence has me I'm in a trance...

My breath grows restless now as I gaze upon her...  

My Love lies with me into the settled night... She lays silent in peace and I'm wondering what dreams may become her..

Its half past Seven, she's still in her rest... My love grows stronger now as I wait to give a mornings kiss..

And you know I'm in Love...  And you hope She's your Love... And you know your in love with the woman sleeping by your side..

I'm the one who holds her oh so right..

And this I know is true, your Love keeps shinning through and we've got what it takes to last.. Walking hand in hand, together our feet in the sand as we journey our way through good life..

And you know I'm in Love...  And you hope She's your Love.. And you know I'm in love with a woman who's sleeping by my side.. I'm the one who holds her oh so right..

And this I know is true, her love keeps shinning through and we've got what it takes to last..

And you know your in Love...  And you hope She's your Love... And you know your in love with the woman sleeping by your side..  I'm the one who holds her oh so right..

And you know your in Love... And you Hope She's your Love... And you know your in Love with that woman who's standing by your side.. Your the one who holds her oh so right...

My Love then awakens to see smile...

The years have gone by and so I am here to say, The woman I love has still captured me in this way...  Its the way you laugh when you’re feeling sad inside,  Its the way you smile when I know you had been let down,  Its the way you look at me at times I can barely breathe cause,
(chorus)
Oh - I got you inside of me and, And Oh - my heads a spinning with what your doing to me...
Its the way you glance when your looking right at me,  Its the way you strive when your working toward something, Its the way you dance, its the way you share, its the way your helping others, Its the way you serve, its the way you learn, its every bit of an amazement to me cause,
(chorus)
And Oh - I got you inside of me and, And Oh - my head is a spinnin with what your doing to me...
Its the way you walk, its the way you talk to others when in need, Its the way you share and the way you care, when your not doing so well, Its the way you love and the way you go about your busy day and...
(chorus)
And Oh - I got you inside of me and, And Oh - my head is a spinnin with what your doing to me 
And Oh - I got you inside of me and, And Oh - my head is a spinnin with what your doing to me
And I love your love for me.

The years have gone by and so I am here to say, The woman I love has still captured me in this way...  Its the way you laugh when you’re feeling sad inside,  Its the way you smile when I know you had been let down,  Its the way you look at me at times I can barely breathe cause,

Oh - I got you inside of me and, And Oh - my heads a spinning with what your doing to me...

Story

Travelled is a song that gives some insight into my life.

Lyrics

Copyright: 2010  by: Steven Dwight Longe

I’ve been traveled, traveling this road of life.  I don’t know how long I may have.  Been traveling this Road of Life.  I don't know how long I may have...

In thinking about the tough times in my life,  I was strong and steady to my course.  The life that had been given to me, tempered me in my partial family tree. 

But the road is long, it keeps on going on,  I must keep moving along... 

I’ve been travelled, traveling this road of life, I don’t know how long I may have.

I’ve been travelled...

Keeping my faith as I walk, I must keep traveling onward toward the road of life.  The pain of loved ones lost and to know that I must stand to make a difference once we march on to eternal life. 

And the road is long, it keeps on going on,  I must keep moving on... 

I’ve been travelled, traveling this road of life.  

I don’t know...

These Times have been troubled  - you know your future's in question - there so much waste...
And though you may be a hurtin now and your thinking that you hearts torn - in so much pain...
The only thing we should do is love,  love that is certain in all of us.. love that's been broken inside of us, a love that's been shown to all of us...
And if your sick and your down and out and if your lonely and you're full of doubts - loves reaching for you.. And if your heart has been hardened by all of life's sorrows and you think... and you think that you've lost...
The only thing we should do is love,  love that is certain in all of us.. love that's been broken inside of us, a love that's been shown to all of us...
The only thing we can do is love, when your out searching - Love can elude you...
The only thing we can do is love, when you thinking lts forwever - love can be lost....
The only thing we should do is love,  love that is certain in all of us.. love that's been broken inside of us, a love that's been shown to all of us...
And there's love for everyone...

Story

My Apathy

This song is not meant to be a sad song but a song of triumph! This song is about me in a funk rutt while still grieving and doing nothing great with my life.  Observing the world - I sat and played Medal of Honor all day long while dealing with my grief of loved ones passing... It went on for a good while until I decided to pull myself out, change my atitude.  "I'm tired of doing nothing and I'm making some changes and you'll see me around taking my Apathy DOWN!!"

Realizing the finality of death I decided to make some music after a peculiar encounter with a cancer survivor! This encounter and timing of this supercharged me into music after decades laying dormant.

Lyrics

My Apathy - Copyright: 2011  by: Steven Dwight Longe

You wrap yourself in the Flags Freedoms - Its another Election Day.  And your thinkin it doesn't matter anyhow - nothing really seems to change...

And your sittin around doin nothing watching the days light fade from Gray then slip into darkenss, always inside your head, thinking you need a change.. and you just sit - playing that Internet Game....

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Apathy is in you and me and I don't like, I don't like what its about, oh No,  Apathy has been stealing, Stealing from me and its bringing me down, down, down, way way way way down....

And are we without purpose, a drift in a world of decay, uncaring, unfeeling and indiferent in finding our way, through our personal numbness, we're almost spiritually dead - Do we just turn our backs to the state that we're in???

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Apathy is in you and me and I don't like, I don't like what its about, oh No - No,  Apathy has been stealing, Stealing from me and its bringing me down, down, down, way way way down....

My Apathy had gotten to me - was bringing me down-down-down- way way way down....  I'm tired of a lazy me and I'm making some changes and you'll see me around... Taking My Apathy DOWN!!!

Mmmmmmmmm

You see My Apathy had gotten to me and was bringing me down, tired of doin nothin, I'm making some changes and you'll see me around taking my apathy down...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh - ah - Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

And are you sittin around and doing nothing?

Summertime - A song about getting caught in an unforeseen Thunderstorm while on a 7 Mile Nature Walk. True Event

Lyrics

Copyright: 2011  by: Steven Dwight Longe

The Whispering Pines, the Sun in our Hair... these were the times that we shared...  And when I'm with you girl, the fun never ends...
Then the Rain would fall and we were left scrambling to Shelter, Thunder rumbling through us and the Lightning crashing excited our Souls until the Sun broke through once more...
Such was the time in our lives with vision so clear and our life together ahead of us to live...
The Whispering Pines... The sun in our hair... these were the times that we shared... And
Then the Rain would fall and we were left scrambling to Shelter, Thunder rumbling through us and the Lightning crashing excited our Souls until the Sun broke through once more...
Such was the time in our lives with vision so clear and our life together ahead of us to live...
The Whispering Pines... The sun in our hair... these were the times that we shared... And now still with you girl.. the fun never ends... As we go on hand in hand... now still with you girl.. the fun never ends... As we go on hand in hand...

The Whispering Pines, the Sun in our Hair... these were the Times that we shared...  And when I'm with you Girl, the fun never ends...

Then the Rain would fall and we were left scrambling to Shelter... Thunder rumbling through and the Lightning crashing excited our Souls until the Sun broke through once more...

Such was this time in our lives with vision so clear and our life together ahead of us to live...

The Whispering Pines... The sun in our hair... These were the times that we shared... And now still with you girl the fun never ends... As we go on hand in hand...

Extended Version:

Into the sweet Summertime your gonna find us in the Sun..  Sweet Sweet Sumertime your gonna see us havin fun!

Now the leaves have all burst into beautiful colors and Summertime is nowhere to be found... Its Autumn's time now and Summertime he headed South...

The Malaise was created due to the fact that our economy has been treading water in this Malaise since the Financial Crisis of 2008.

As we all are making our way through toward better times but right now we are in what I call The Malaise.

Copyright 2012- The Malaise by Steven Dwight Longe - Acoustic Memories Album.

 

These Times are hard and our money doesn't go quite as far... as it use to. 

But I've got you by my side and that's all I need right now... to help get me through...

And I know your Love keeps shining through, for this I know it will be a better day for us...

No matter what this ol'world ill's in its life circumstances, I know we must keep movin on..

Then one day, we'll find a way, to open the Love in our Hearts and shine on Everyone...

And we'll keep on do-in good, and we'll keep on do-in what we think we should - with this life that's been given us...

You may think at times its a bit much and we may feel we don't deserve such...

Its gonna get harder everyday... But good folks be finding their way... As we're working through this Malaise...

These Times are hard and our money doesn't go quite as far - as it use too... But i've got you by my side and that's all I need right now - to help get us through...

Gettin tougher everyday....Still good times be finding our way... As we're working through this Malaise...

These Times are hard and our money doesn't go quite as far... As it use too....

Chillin - Aoustic Instrumental

Chillin came to be one day when I was a bit frustrated with my creative process and just decided to bang out a tune and play the guitar hard to push it to its limits.  I was very surprised how the old Sigma handled that abuse!   The deep bass echoes resonate beautifully and enjoyed listening to this one!  As I was playing I was thinking about a pre-battle preparation scene in a western.

Turn this one up!  Best listened too at higher db's!
