CALL TO THE LIVING

There is a call to the living
       a call that goes on
                            for all time
this call, this call
              is all for the living

who knows all,
       all we could be giving
we who have given our all
                            our all

but still this call to the living
       time for forgiving
       for giving
                     our all

we're calling   calling
              to all the living

       live, all of you,
                  all of you
                         all

       live, all of you,
                  all of you
                         all

       all your years
       let go your fears
       let dry your tears

       love all
         love all
           live all
              live all
                   live all

this is our call to the living

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

These pieces come into being in different ways.
This time, long ago (1994), I wrote The Warmth Within.
Recently (December 2009), Mark Corwin, friend, composer,
sound producer, improvised some music to it.
At home I listened to the improvising - and heard different words.
They started,
There is a call to the living ...

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
