Wings of Desire.

And who by fire, who by water,

Who in the sunshine, who in the night time,
Who by high ordeal, who by common trial,
Who in your merry merry month of may,
Who by very slow decay,

And who shall I say is calling?

And who in her lonely slip, who by barbiturate,
Who in these realms of love, who by something blunt,
And who by avalanche, who by powder,
Who for his greed, who for his hunger,

And who shall I say is calling?

And who by brave assent, who by accident,
Who in solitude, who in this mirror,
Who by his lady’s command, who by his own hand,
Who in mortal chains, who in power,

And who shall I say is calling?

    I wish, but no, the words are by Leonard Cohen. 🙂 (Link to a youtube of L.C. singing that song at the bottom of details)

  12. Very very nice Grady – and you can never go wrong including Leonard Cohen lyrics (or Tom Waits for that matter actually…).

  13. Thanks Jess! Normally I wouldn’t use song lyrics in a post, but LC was perfect for this one. (Tom Waits? Now your giving me ideas… *smiles*)

  14. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Cheers
