Sitting

Oh I’m on my way I know I am,
Somewhere not so far from here
All I know is all I feel right now,
I feel the power growing in my hair

Sitting on my own not by myself,
Everybody’s here with me
I don’t need to touch your
face to know,
And I don’t need to use my eyes to see

I keep on  wondering if I sleep too long,
Will I always wake up the same (or so)?
I  keep on wondering if I sleep too long,
Will I even wake up the same or something

Oh I’m on my way I know I am,
But times there were when I
thought not
Bleeding half my soul in bad company,
I thank the moon I had
the strength to stop

I’m not making love to anyone’s wishes,
Only for  that light I see
‘Cause when I’m dead and lowered low in my grave,
That’s gonna be the only thing that’s left of me

And if I make it to the waterside,
Will I even find me a boat (or so)?
And I if I make it to the waterside,
I’ll be sure to write you note or something

Oh I’m on my way I know I am,
Somewhere not so far from here
All I know is all I feel right now,
I feel the power growing in my hair

Oh life is like a maze of doors
and they all open from the side you’re on
Just keep on pushing hard boy, try as you may
You’re going to wind up where you started from,
You’re going to wind up where you started from

I wish I could take credit for these inspiring words but I can’t.  They were written by the amazing and incomparable Cat Stevens.  He knew how to use simple yet beautiful words to inspire and create deep meaning about life and love.

    Oh …I love this singer. I listened to your youtube video …on the sidebar I saw on of my favorites from him … about the children playing.

    May I ask what this song means for you? Do you just like it…generically I mean … or is there a special meaning?

    (By the way, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.)

      It`s always difficult to pick a favourite Cat song. I pretty much love them all. I love the song for it`s meaning. To me it speaks to personal growth. I also love the passionate delivery of the song. I have memories of seeing him at a concert when I was just a wee thing..as he sat at his black baby grand piano and played this song. My heart almost exploded with love. I think I`ll write a post about why that song has meaning. Thanks for the question!

    You got to see him in person? Wow. I know today he does songs for children? In concert with his religion now I think.

      I actually saw him in concert twice. Once in Montreal, and once in Ottawa. I was completely in love with him at the time, lol. I have alot of trouble reconciling the Cat Stevens of my time, with the Yusuf Islam of today. Having said that, I respect his decision. To each his own.
