Now That I Found You

"Now That I Found You" at Jango

Now that I Found You I want you
More and more every day that goes by dear
You’re always on my mind all the time
And even though I cant have you
I keep you inside of me I’ve known you forever
And ever you always been the one for me
When I see you a wave of emotion fills me up inside
Wave of emotion Wave of emotion Wave of emotion
Was it a mistake of fate that we were separated?
And what can be said that we found each other
Is friendship more important than to be lovers?
I think that that has been discovered for friendship
Can last as long as lovers and there’s love between friends
Now that I Found You I want you
More and more every day that goes by dear
You’re always on my mind all the time
And even though I cant have you
I keep you inside of me I’ve known you forever
And ever you always been the one for me
When I see you a wave of emotion fills me up inside
Wave of emotion Wave of emotion Wave of emotion
Was it a mistake of fate that we were separated?
And what can be said that we found each other
Is friendship more important than to be lovers?
I think that that has been discovered for friendship
Can last as long as lovers and there’s love between friends

West Wind Spirit

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_4843079

Long is the Night and It was Long ago
And you can hear the west wind in the cracks of the window
I wrote it down to remember the day
The west wind blew the spirit my way
Oh west wind blew and It whispered to me
In the cracks of the window by the Sea
You must go to a place far away
The Love that you seek will be put in your way
Look around you and remember this place was your home
But is no more you must go out and find yourself and you soul
There is a reason a rhyme a plan you don’t always know why
But I will visit you from time to time
And show you in the windows in your mind
Close your eyes and let go if you want to visit me
I’ll be in the west wind in the cracks of the window

Dancing on the Milky Way

Dancing on the Milky Way

Come dancing with me on the Milky Way
Will go dancing on the Milky Way
With rockets all around us
It’s in the romancing the stone that is the romancing
In the wander is the lust
But I will still open my heart to your advancing
Because theirs lighting in my veins
And will go dancing will go dancing on the Milky Way
With rockets bursting in the sky will go dancing
And the storm is all around me and I cry out like thunder
And there’s lightning in my veins and I am waiting here for you
Come with me will go dancing on the Milky Way
With lightning in the sky will go dancing on the Milky Way
 With rockets in the sky with an eagle eye I hunt you
Perched on top a mountain I can see the valley
And the angels fly about me come with me
Will go dancing will go dancing
Come with me will go dancing on the Milky Way With rockets in the sky
Every emotion is exalted I will come out triumphantly
For my destinies at my fingertips the man who does what’s in his heart
Than that what’s in his heart is already done
Come with me will go dancing in the Milky Way
With lightning in the sky for in the searching I have already found you
You have my attention and that is a covenant I can hold onto
With you forever and will go dancing on the Milky Way
Will go dancing on the Milky Way It’s in romancing the stone
 That is the romancing in the wander is the lust
But I will still open my heart to your advancing
Because theirs lighting in my veins And will go dancing
on the Milky Way will go dancing on the Milky Way
Because there is lightning in my veins

Stoic Look on a Chizeled Face Trun.

Can I Help you mister? why are you looking at me. I can see it in your eyes you look intrigued. If you don't mind I wold like to know so I'm not to disturbed when I go. With a stoic look on a chiseled face . I've been out to Sea most of my life and the rest of the time a bar stools been my wife. I'm looking at you because you remind me when I was a pup in my younger day. Is that so, well I'd like to know, my name is Kevin what do you say? People call me Blue,I'm about 92 If you shake my hand you'll see whats left of this man, But if I had it in me I would kick your butt, because I been there got the trophy for all of that, I wasted my life on women and booze, if i had to do it over I'd probably do the same, but I'll never know what could of been, if someone grabbed a hold of me when I was 19 and kicked my butt

Last Dance


http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_5841796

It was a long time ago she fell out of love with me
She told me herself that was a blow
I never got over it it can’t be so we’ve been together for so long
Now I find myself sitting on the edge of the world
Crying out one more dance one more dance take a chance
Can I have one more dance before you go?
Most days I get by but today I cried it came to me
That their was a possibility that the last dance has past me by
And that made me cry I’m a man I’m not suppose to cry
But here I am tears running down my face and the only thing
That lifts me up inside is the possibility that you’ll have
One more dance with me one more dance one more dance
 Take a chance can I have on more dance before you go?
 I can’t let go to the possibility 

Looking Down The Barrel

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_5507684

I’ve been looking down the barrel of the is gun for so long now
I’ve been looking down the barrel of the is gun for so long now
I think its time to do or die I don’t think I blink this time around
I’ve been looking down the barrel of the is gun for so long now
Will a legion be born or is it all in my mind and just a matter of time
It’s not the money I’m after but I’m tired of being poor
It’s a testimony for the here after a badge I can take with me
A dreamer life is how I see me and I put it down on paper
I made my stand and it cost me man so when its my time to go
I hope you know I spent the better part of my life staring down a barrel

"Oh No Here I Go Again Searching" Kevin Lajiness

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_7718165

Oh no here I go again searching for the words
To put down on this page of my life’s stories
Looking for perfection or something awesome to say
Oh no here I go again searching I run out of ideas again
For a love song I’m just left with these feelings
I want to get out of me when it all comes together
It’s beautiful to me and to be honest with you
It’s just as fun searching too cause you never no
where it will lead you and you can’t go wrong
There aint no right way to write a song most times it’s by accident
So I keep on searching along till I find what I’m looking for
Oh no here I go again searching for the words
To put down on this page of my life’s stories
Looking for perfection or something awesome to say
Oh no here I go again searching I run out of ideas again
For a love song I’m just left with these feelings
I want to get out of me when it all comes together
It’s beautiful to me and to be honest with you
It’s just as fun searching too cause you never no
where it will lead you and you can’t go wrong
There aint no right way to write a song most times it’s by accident
So I keep on searching along till I find what I’m looking for

Full text of "History of Harford County, Maryland : from 1608 (the year of Smith's expedition) to the close of the War of 1812": "206 HISTORY OF HARFORD COUNTY. JACOB BOND. The first of this family to take up land within the limits of what is now known as Harford county, was Peter Bond, of Anne Arundel, who came into the col- ony in the year 1660. He acquired Pleasant Hills, on both sides of the Patapsco, about the mouth of Gwynn's Falls, now included in the city of Baltimore, and pat- ented Harris' Trust, and in 1691 purchased the adja- cent tract called Prosperity, lying on both sides of Bush river. He was twice married, and died in 1705, leaving sons Peter, Thomas, William and John, the two last named being minor children of his second wife, who, after a brief period of mourning (1707), married Philip Washington. Peter Bond, as heir, succeeded to all the estate of his father except Prosperity and Harris' Trust, which were divided between the three younger sons. Thomas had already settled in Harford county, and in 1700 married Anne Robertson, of Anne Arundel. He patented, in 1703, Knaves Misfortune, adjacent to the tracts above mentioned, where he built a substantial house in which he lived until his death. This house was on the site of the residence of Mr. John R. Spencer, near Emmorton. The old Bond house is said to have been built of brick imported from England, and part of it. was standing up to the time of the erection of the pres- ent dwelling by Mr. Lee Magness, about twenty years ago. Thomas Bond died in 1756. This old house is said to have been used as a smallpox hospital about the time of the Revolution. Thomas Bond lies buried HISTORY OF HARFORD COUNTY. 207 near the house and the location of his grave is still known. In 1 7 14 he patented Bond's Forest, of three thou- sand one hundred acres, lying between Bynum's run and the Little Gunpowder Falls, and purchased Cheap- side and Poplar Ridge, with other tracts, amounting to about three thousand acres. In 1705 he received five thousand acres, lying in Baltimore county, on the west side of the Susquehanna river, called Bond's Manor. In 1739 he sold a portion of this land to Capt. Thomas Cresap, who thus became involved in the boundary dis- pute, from which William Penn emerged crowned with success. Thomas Bond, in 1749, conveyed to his sons Thomas and John, as trustees, part of Bond's Forest, to be laid out conveniently near the main road, including 'a house now built intended for a meeting house for the people called Quakers to worship God in, and also a school- house already built.' The records of Gunpowder Meeting show acceptance of this deed in 1753. This was the beginning of the Little Falls Meeting at Fallston. He was a member of the celebrated grand jury which protested against the removal of the county seat from the Forks of Gunpowder to Joppa, denouncing it as 'a palpable, notorious grievance to this county.' Thomas died in 1755, having previously settled each of his sons in comfortable houses on 'plantations,' and divided his lands among his eight children. His eldest son Thomas married Elizabeth Scott, and was the an- cestor of large families of Jarrets, Amos, Bosleys, Howards and Munnikhuysens. 208 HISTORY OF HARFORD COUNTY. John married Alice Ann Webster, whose descendants are Fells, Lees, Wilsons and Bradfords. Joshua married Anne Partridge, and was the an- cestor of many Lees, Morris, Morrisons and Howards. Jacob married Fanny Partridge, and from him are descended Prestons, Wilmers, Abbotts, Gittings, Hol- lands and McCormicks. Sarah married William Fell, whose descendants are Fells, Fews, Dabs, Kennards, Dorseys and Johnsons. Ann married Edward Fell, and afterwards Giles, and from her are descended Giles and Johnsons. John, son of Thomas, who married Alice Ann Web- ster, joined his father-in-law in organizing the Bush River Company, which erected one of the first iron fur- naces in the colonies. Thomas, son of John, married Rebecca, daughter of Tobias Stansbury. He was justice of the peace and judge of the Orphans' Court, and a zealous adherent of the Methodist church. His eldest son John was an itinerant preacher, and the friend and companion of Bishop Asbury. His son was Dr. Thomas E. Bond, Sr., a very cel- ebrated preacher and editor of the Christian Advocate, the latter being the father of Dr. Thomas E. Bond, the younger, and Judge Hugh Lennox Bond, recently deceased. The most prominent of the Bonds from the stand- point of Harford history, was Jacob, who died in November, 1780. He was a prominent member of the Committee of Harford County in the Revolution, hav- ing been elected by the people, and was captain of Company Eleven, of Harford militia, in the Revolu- tion, the other officers being Thoma? Johnson, first HISTORY OF HARFORD COUNTY 209 lieutenant; James McComas, second lieutenant, and Martin Preston, ensign. Jacob Bond represented Harford county in the con- vention which met at Annapolis in 1776 and formed the first constitution of the State, his colleagues there being Henry Wilson, Jr., John Love and John Archer. He was also one of Harford's representatives in the Annapolis convention of June 22, 1774, which pro- tested against the tax on tea, his Harford colleagues being Richard Dallam, John Love, Thomas Bond, John Paca and Benedict Edward Hall."

The Sherrard family of Steubenville - Google Books

The Sherrard family of Steubenville - Google Books: "THE WEDDING DAY.

The 24th of May, 1827, was the time fixed for the marriage between myself and Jane Hindman, and preparations were made on both sides for the coming event.

I had a few choice friends invited to accompany me to the wedding, and I had chosen John Sharon as my waiter, and had asked Joseph Kithcart and his sister Kezia to go with us over to the marriage. And Jane Hindman had Mary Ann Brown for her waiter, and John Simeral and several others as invited guests. I had already notified the Rev. Jacob Cozard, who was still pastor of Old Centre Church, to be on hand that day to tie the knot and make us truly man and wife.

I presented the bride with two pairs of white gloves,—one pair of white kid, and the other of white silk. I and my party had not arrived long before we were called up upon the floor facing the Rev. Jacob Cozard, and he said the ceremony which made me and Jane Hindman man and wife,—the very thing I had all along been anxiously waiting for. After dinner the Rev. Mr. Cozard made ready to go home, as he at that time lived some six miles southeast of Wellsburg, in the bounds of Lower Buffalo Congregation. I had given my waiter, John Sharon, a $3 bill, which he handed to him, and Mr. Cozard was off. The amount paid him as a marriage fee was rather small as it seemed, and so it was; but forty and fifty years ago two dollars and three dollars was a very common marriage fee.

The next morning being the infare day, soon after breakfast we made ready to start for home, it being six miles from Pleasant Hill, where the Hindmans lived, to Rush Run Mills, where the Sherrards lived. I had previously given an invitation to all the young people of the bride's party, which they had cheerfully accepted; and when all were mounted and under headway, it made a very respectable infare party.

On arriving home we found all things in order, and mother-in-law Kithcart and others waiting to receive us, among whom was Absalom Hall and his wife.

I and Jane had not been very long married until mother-in-law Kithcart and her two sons, Joseph and Cunningham, had thoughts of her being removed to Mount Pleasant to keep house for them, so that her daughter might be released and be united in marriage, according to promise, to Smiley Sharon. To bring about the matter of her removal, her son Joseph came over to see me about it, and asked me how soon I could move mother over to Mount Pleasant. I answered that I had no part nor lot in the matter. ' Why,' said he, ' are you not under promise to move her in any direction as far away as what you brought her here ? ' ' No, sir,' said I, ' I am under no such obligation. Before I brought her away from her old home, she expressed a fear that I might soon marry again, and if so, that would put her to the necessity of seeking a new home, and no way of moving to it. But I said to your mother, that if I married in less than three years, I would promise to move her to any place she might choose to go, as far away as I would bring her. And now I have not married till almost four years have passed round, and if you want your mother to keep house for you, do as I did when I wanted her for that purpose.' And that ended the matter; for in a few days he came and moved his mother and his sister Kezia to his home at Mount Pleasant. And after this, preparations were made for the marriage of Martha Kithcart to Smiley Sharon, which was solemnized on Thursday, June 21, 1827, by the Rev. Joseph Anderson, pastor at the time of the Mount Pleasant Church, and I and my new wife Jane were at the wedding."

The Sherrard family of Steubenville - Google Books: "OUR JOURNEY HOMEWARD.

Having completed all my business in town, we left Fremont and came as far as Ballville, opposite Tiffin, where we staid all night, and the next day, November 5th, we passed on through Rome, some twenty miles out from Ballville, and from there we came to Findlay, the county seat of Hancock County. From there we went four miles northwest to visit the family of Absalom Hall, who had moved out there from Harrison County the fall of 1834.

He was married to a cousin of my first wife, a daughter of old John Cunningham. We remained over Sabbath with the Halls, and went to church with them at Findlay, where the family attended the Presbyterian Church. The services were conducted by the pastor, the Rev. Mr. Van Eman, formerly from Washington County, Pa. After sermon we returned to Absalom Hall's where we spent the remainder of the Sabbath in that old-fashioned manner of Sabbath-keeping so common among Presbyterian families in olden times, but I fear that such strictness in the way of Sabbath-keeping will never return again. That old manner of keeping the Sabbath was to refrain from vain and idle conversation ; to refrain also from reading newspapers and vain story books, and to confine the family to the reading of the Old and New Testaments, to sermon books or only good books that treated upon religious subjects, • such as Boston's ' Fourfold State,' ' The Afflicted Man's Companion,' ' The Travels of True Godliness,' ' The Pilgrim's Progress,' or 'The Holy War,' by John Bunyan, not forgetting to learn the Shorter Catechism and the Psalms and Hymns by Dr. Watts. Before we left Absalom Hall's on Monday we learned that his son Aaron was to be married the next Thursday to a daughter of their pastor, the Rev. Mr. Van Eman, and they gave us a pressing invitation to remain- for the wedding, but we had to decline because it would detain us too long. But I suppose one motive they had was to pay back a debt of gratitude, as it will be remembered that when I was married to Jane Hind

man, May 24, 1827, I had Absalom Hall and his wife at our infare on the 25th, and they staid with us till the following day after dinner. And upon leaving me that day Absalom Hall observed to me that I had got a wife now who to all appearance would hold out as long as I would.

As proof that Absalom Hall guessed pretty nearly right, thirty-eight years and six months have rolled by since that time, and I and Jane Hindman are both living after the lapse of all these years, and thank God we are both in good health and the enjoyment of each other's company and fellowship, and not a wave of trouble rolls across our peaceful breasts, and naught to break our rest.

(And just here, November 22, 1889, I have read to mother a few of the foregoing pages, and she has greatly enjoyed them, her mind being perfectly clear, and all her faculties remarkably preserved, sixty-two years and six months after her marriage above mentioned, and she will be eighty-five years of age December 14th, next month.—T. J. S.)

It was in the afternoon of Monday, November 7, 1836, when we left Hall's, for Joseph Hill had that forenoon purchased from Absalom Hall two lots of land in the vicinity of Findlay, and I drew up the deeds for them, one of forty acres and the other of eighty, and we went into town and had the deeds acknowledged and recorded."

Father time

Oh father time

You are so hard to comprehend

No beginning

And no end

How did we get where we are now

I just don't know how

It’s a mystery of life

Some things remain unknown

But I'm sure there's a reason

Just like for the season's

Do you think

That time has passed you buy

Don’t worry

Your still here

Time is not what it appears

Things happen

When the lord says so

It’s always for reason

And that reason is not always clear

And things may not be what they appear

Don’t worry your time will come

Things only go undone for so long

Then the pendulum swings the other way

Time one not pass you by

Don’t worry you're still here

And when your not I’ll be with you

"I'm going to rewrite this soon to include some life events" Here's the dealeo, I started doing Wood Sculptures about 15 years ago to try and keep myself busy after I stopped drinking and smoking. About 5 years into it I got throat and neck Cancer. I say this because before I had the Cancer I had not written or sung Music. Looking to clean up an open space in late 2007 and 2008 ( http://openspacedocumentary.blogspot.com/) i became closer to some of the local wild life, I bonded with a Hawk and a Baby duck and started to write songs, I forced myself to sing when I could, I have over three hundred songs now, some good, some not so good, but I am getting better at writing, singing, mixing and arranging.

 These books represent a ton of work , good bad or indifferent. I apologize ahead of time for typo's English and spelling, i suck at all of that, but it's about the music and lyrics and that's what really matter but I gave it my best.
 with some links to the songs , some I have taken down, (I am going to try and put them all back up for nostalgia and to show my progress from Throat and neck Cancer), but the lyrics are all there
  I have many slideshows/Videos of nature and Open Space pic's over the years that I put to my music on YouTube-kevinlajiness  and saved in Google + or Picasa.

  I grew up on Lake Erie Lagoons, my grandfather had a bate shop. Fishing and hunting was big on my fathers side no doubted stemmed from the fact that his ancestors were “Woods Runners” or “coureurs des bois”. As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for trees, nature and the environment, I attribute that, and the spiritual connection I have with mother earth, to the connection my ancestors had with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Most if not all of them are child friendly. I started writing my early songs while working on a open space for a year, where I bonded with a hawk and a duck.

        Allot of what I draw from comes from life’s experience and what’s in my heart, what I believe is a responsibility to carry the messages of or ancestors on what is right, to come to a conclusion we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that we pass that on to our children in story and song,but remember i am an artist I write story and rhyme, lesson and fable, I do not try to be politically correct.even though i don't use cuss words other that Hell and dam, I don't have a problem with artist that do,to each there own, I believe things evolve for a reason, hey it got someone out of the slums, by the way the baby duck that followed me home got to big and i gave her to a zoo keeper, she flew back to his house from the zoo and they raised her, she has since had her own baby's
