Joined as One Forever by Kevin Lajiness

Joined as One Forever

by Kevin Lajiness



Song  Lyrics


 I woke up in a sweat last night 
I had a vision it was a terrible sight 
I took a journey and they showed me of there plight 
I saw two hands joined together by the great creator 
It spanned an ocean and a continent 
Then there was a great fight that 
Crossed the ocean and a continent 
Two kingdoms come from it 
But one was left in the dust and ashes 
Too rise from the two that were left for it was born 
Of love not war no man should forget the children 
Of those that cried there fathers that died 
That they were joined as one but live in two kingdoms 
Give thanks to the one he has blessed the children 
I woke up in a sweat last night I had a vision it was a terrible sight 
I took a journey and they showed me of there plight 
I saw two hands joined together by the great creator 
It spanned an ocean and a continent then there was a great fight 
That crossed the ocean and a continent 
Two kingdoms come from it but one was left in the dust and ashes 
To rise from the two that were left for it was born of love not war 
No man should forget the children of those that cried 
There fathers that died that they were joined as one 
But live in two kingdoms give thanks to the one 
He has blessed the children

Last Dance by Kevin Lajiness

Last Dance

by Kevin Lajiness

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

Seagulls in the Sky by Kevin Lajiness

Seagulls in the Sky

by Kevin Lajiness This song as sound issues i need to fix



When the sun goes down seagulls in the sky 
Lovers come out for a midnight delight the passion is played out 
On the stage of life some hearts will be as one 
Others will be broken in the setting sun grab hold of the night 
Take the flight fire flies light the passage for the right 
The sands of time are part of the rhyme don’t wait till it’s to late 
To capture your love don’t let it pass you by 
It’s better to have loved in vain than to have not loved at all 
The flower did not bear fruit but was pleasing to the eye 
Hold it gently and smell the air and remember the day 
It will come to you when you write down your songs of yesterday

What Makes You Want to be a Tumble Weed by Kevin Lajiness

What makes you want to be a tumble weed? 
What makes you want to stand in the desert? 
Don’t take my home from me 
Concrete and asphalt that’s for the city 
Leave the rest to us simple folk 
I gota be where I can breath 
I gota have fresh air and the cleaner the water 
The better and I’ll fight for that right 
And I’m not alone in that 
If you feel like I feel let the people know 
What makes you want to be a tumble weed? 
What makes you want to be a tumble weed? 
What makes you want to stand in the desert by yourself? 
Is it fate or is it something inside 
Or was I just born that way do you tell yourself 
Never really cared about school 
If I’d had my rathers I’d be outside all day 
Always been intrigued by Mother Nature 
Felt the spirit from a younger day 
Now it makes sense to me that I want to live on the fringe 
Of society don’t take my home from me 
Concrete and asphalt that’s for the city 
Leave the rest to us simple folk 
I gota be where I can breath 
I gota have fresh air and the cleaner the water 
The better and I’ll fight for that right 
And I’m not alone in that 
If you feel like I feel let the people know 
What makes you want to be a tumble weed? 
What makes you want to stand in the desert by yourself? 
Is it fate or is it something inside 
Or was I just born that way do you tell yourself 
Never really cared about school 
If I’d had my rathers I’d be outside all day 
Always been intrigued by Mother Nature 
Felt the spirit from a younger day 
Now it makes sense to me that I want to live on the fringe 
Of society what makes you want to be a tumble weed? 
What makes you want to stand in the desert? 
Don’t take my home from me 
Concrete and asphalt that’s for the city 
Leave the rest to us simple folk 
I gota be where I can breath 
I gota have fresh air and the cleaner the water 
The better and I’ll fight for that right 
And I’m not alone in that 
If you feel like I feel let the people know 
What makes you want to be a tumble weed? 
What makes you want to stand in the desert by yourself?

As the tide roles in before me and the full moon passes me by 
And I wait for the sunshine on a new day I ponder the passing of time 
How the changes are so slowly but when they happen you say to yourself 
My oh my how the time go by and you hope the changes are good ones 
And we keep are promises to are mother because she’s all we have and
 each other 
We must take care of her now my brother as the tide roles in before me 
And the full moon passes me by and I want for the sunshine on a new day 
And I wait for the sunshine on a new day and I ponder the passing of time 
How the changes are so slowly but when they happen you say to yourself 
My oh my how the time go by and you hope the changes are good ones 
And we keep are promises to are mother because she’s all we have and
 each other 
We must take care of her now my brother

"Suns a Rising Heat Wave" Kevin Lajiness


Suns a Rising birds a migrating hope to be profound today
Fact is I feel of my hoarse years ago and never got back on
Or should I say I’m riding ones with wings of doves
I’m riding ones with wings of doves
I’m riding ones with wings of doves
I’m riding ones with wings of doves
Don’t have to use a silver sword I can don’t have to use a silver sword
I can say it with my words you can’t fight beautiful logic and win
The reality of the natural order of things
Time and time Mother Nature teaches man a lesson
The enemy of reason and logic is a lie
Its friend the sword I speak of is called the truth
I guess I’ll never stop trying to save the world
At the very less let people know my point of view
Subject to a level of consciousness looking inward
To change or better myself Suns a Rising birds a migrating
Hope to be profound today fact is I feel of my hoarse years ago

"I Don't Know What Come Over Me" Kevin Lajiness


I don’t know why tears are running down my face again
It doesn’t have anything to do with you it’s just me
And here I go again
I don’t know why or what come over me
But it shock me to my bones
Could it be I’m turning fifty?
And I would like to be a kid again
I don’t know why I get this way
Chances are I’ll be better tomorrow
It seams like every time you
Clime a mountain you’re only happy for a wile
Then you have to find another mountain to clime
Or you’ll lay down and die
I don’t know what come over me
But I have to get in the car and drive
Don’t know where I’m going but I hope 
I’ll find it when I get there
Truth is I’ve been kidding myself
I know I’m going to have to make a move
I just hope at fifty theirs something left in me to make
That move I have to make
Maybe ill get lucky and it’ll come to me
With open arms then I’ll know what come over me
And I’ll be a happy man
I don’t know why tears are running down my face again
It doesn’t have anything to do with you it’s just me
And here I go again
I don’t know why or what come over me
But it shock me to my bones
Could it be I’m turning fifty?
And I would like to be a kid again
I don’t know why I get this way
Chances are I’ll be better tomorrow
It seams like every time you
Clime a mountain you’re only happy for a wile
Then you have to find another mountain to clime
Or you’ll lay down and die
I don’t know what come over me
But I have to get in the car and drive
Don’t know where I’m going but I hope 
I’ll find it when I get there
Truth is I’ve been kidding myself
I know I’m going to have to make a move
I just hope at fifty theirs something left in me to make
That move I have to make
Maybe ill get lucky and it’ll come to me
With open arms then I’ll know what come over me
And I’ll be a happy man

"The Colors of the Sunset" Kevin Lajiness



Medicine woman what’s wrong with my child he cries all night when the

He’s normally happy can you figure it out she said it’s the color of the sunset he just cant let go when the sun goes down he misses them so you must go far away to the mystery lake at the bottom you’ll find what your looking for
So father went to Mystery Lake he traveled by canoe It took him all day to do what he needed to do
He Stunned the polliwog guarding its gates went to the bottom and brought back the colors she ask for now the boy plays with them when the sun goes down and cries no more Yes the boy plays with them when the sun goes down and cries no more Medicine woman what’s wrong with my child he cries all night when the
Sun go down people from all around can’t find out what’s ailing him
He’s normally happy can you figure it out she said it’s the color of the sunset he just cant let go when the sun goes down he misses them so you must go far away to the mystery lake at the bottom you’ll find what your looking for
So father went to Mystery Lake he traveled by canoe It took him all day to do what he needed to do
He Stunned the polliwog guarding its gates went to the bottom and brought back the colors she ask for now the boy plays with them when the sun goes down and cries no more

"You Lift Me Up My Friend" Kevin Lajiness




[03:34.03]Then I fall to the ground
[03:37.76]You don’t know how much I need you

[04:00.24]You’ve made a difference in my life
[04:04.46]You gave me hope when their was none

"I'm In Love With The Wind" Kevin Lajiness


And here I sit another day and the wind goes right through me
And in time it comes to me and I fall in love again
Cause the mystery’s in the wind my friend
The mystery’s in the wind and it comes to me again and again
And I look for her cause she touches me like no other of her kind
And she carries me along She carries the seeds of love
The emotion of sound and rides the waves
I’m in love with the wind of time I’m in love with the winds of space
I’m in love with the wind in my face all the time

"Last Man Standing" Kevin Lajiness

Last Man Standing


So you filled your self up on Alcohol till you got sick
Now you don’t know how to live without that stick 
Man got so much money to spend so he spends a lifetime spending it 
Still he aint happy even with a cow lick 
But he don’t know how to live without that stick
Now they all need their crutches good looking lad
But he hocked on it to many gals to many chicks
One day his look will be all gone what will he do without that stick
Everyone’s leaning on some kind of dope
For some it a cigarette for others its coke 
One by one they fall to the side don’t know how to live to much pride
After a while it appeared to me in a dream
The last man standing was carrying a cross 
Along with all the other men that were lost 

"Wild Cat Woman" Kevin Lajiness


I gota let go cause you got a hold on me you got me in a bind
I was warned you know she’s a wild cat woman she’ll get her claws in you
She won’t let go but you can’t hold on to her she’s a feminine feline
With an attitude she’ll prowl the night away she’s one illusive cat she’ll make love to you then walk away like nothing happen I’m telling you she’ll tear you apart
Bounce you around like a ball of yarn then she’ll unwind you till there’s nothing left
Stay away from the wild cat woman she’s nobodies pet

"Runaway Kid" Kevin Lajiness


When I look back on the life I’ve lead it occurred to me
 I’ve always been alone even when I’ve lived with someone else
 I’ve been somewhere else in my head
And now I know why that is I’m a runaway
 I’m a runaway I’m a runaway that’s what I am
 And I’ll run my whole life if I can cause it’s easer being a runaway
 Than being hurt again and again I can run away with my dreams
 And they’ll let me be who I am not how someone else
Sees me in there dreams I can run away from my troubles
 At least for awhile but the sad thing is I’ve been running for so long
 I got no home to run back to anymore

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.    

New:"Charleena"2013 "The River" 2013 and "Cried and Cried My life Story"2012 others "Reflections Destiny"2012 "Kevin'ns Epic Music"2012 "Fire Storm Of Emotion" 2012"Angel Secrets"2012 All 18 Available at my Store http://www.reverbnation.com/Kevin Lajiness

  I write from a position of emotion and honesty, usually tell a story about love, life, relationships, nature, adventure, history, spirituality,philosophy etc. My Art and Music style is Naive, I beat mix looped instruments as accompaniments but the melodies don't necessarily match, but I put a great deal of thought into them and try and bring something epic to bear in mind, yet some of my songs are ballads and relaxing songs of love .

 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
