rjdaae: (John Denver)

I finally finished my new layout. Look, it's John Denver! :D And lyrics from one of my favourite JD songs, 'Come and Let Me Look in Your Eyes'.

I guess growing isn't hard to do
Just stand against the wall
Once I was just two feet high
Today I'm six feet tall

But knowing who to listen to
Is something else again
Words just whistle 'round my head
Like seasons in the wind

All across the water the clouds are sailing
They won't let me look at the sky
All I want to do is try and find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes

In searching for the way to go
I've followed all the rules
The way they say to choose between
The wise men and the fools

I listen to the words they say
I read what I should read
I do whatever's right to do
Try to be what I should be

Someone let me in I think the sky is falling
Seems I've gotten lost on my way
All I want to do is try and find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes

Ah, but wisdom isn't underground
Nor on a mountainside
There am I to take myself
Theres no place here to hide
Oh, where can I hide?

All across the universe the stars are fading
Seems we've gotten lost on our way
All I want to do is try and find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes

The banner and colours are a bit wintry for spring, and I've just had another layout idea, so this one might be changed in the next couple of weeks. Then again, it might not. : )

ETA: Changed it, to a "Farewell Andromeda" themed lay-out.

It's been ten years now.
Those years have seen a plaque dedicated at Monterey Bay, a statue placed in Aspen, Rocky Mountain High becoming Colorado's state song, and a live musical based on his work. There's a childrens' picture-book series based on a number of his songs. There are even plans to have his image used on US postage stamps in the next few years. His charities continue helping people and the environment all over the world.

I hope that you will think of me in moments when you're happy and you're smiling,
That the thought will comfort you on cold and cloudy days if you are crying,
That you'll love to see the sun go down,
And the world go around,
And around and around...

-from 'Around and Around', by John Denver

From the life to the light,
From the dark of the night to the dawn,
He is so in my heart,
He is here,
He could never be gone,
Though the singer is silent,
There still is the truth of the song,
In the song...

-from 'On the Wings of a Dream', by John Denver

John Denver, may he never be forgotten!
