THREE LOCKDOWN SONGS

Three songs of lockdown…

TO MAKE YOU FEEL MY LOVE

As coronavirus cases climb
And locked down it feels we’re doing time
How I long to take your hand in mine
To make you feel my love

As the news it goes from bad to worse
And we lose those things we cherish most
How I wish that I could hold you close
To make you feel my love

They say restrictions they must stay for now
And so imprisoned we must be
They say one day that it will end, but how
If nobody has the key

And so behind a mask we still must hide
Concealing all of the tears we’ve cried
Until I walk again close by your side
And let you feel my love

Instrumental

The world is changing as is plain to see
Much that is precious has been lost
Perhaps some day we’ll all be virus free
But what will have been the cost

How much longer must we live like this?
How much longer must your touch I miss?
I hope that one day soon your lips I’ll kiss
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love

IMAGINE

Imagine there’s a.country
It’s easy if you try
Where you must not give comfort
To grieving ones who cry

Imagine all the people
Living all alone

Imagine loved ones dying
It isn’t hard to do
Who as they face their final days
Are kept from seeing you

Imagine all the people
Kept always apart

You may say that I’m mistaken
That these thing could never be
But take a look around you
It’s already plain to see

Imagine no more parties
No sport, no theatre too
No singing songs together
What would you find to do?

Imagine all the people
Scared to show their face

Imagine empty high streets
No parks for kids to play
No jobs for those without them
So unemployed they’ll stay

Imagine all the people
Living lives concealed

You may say that we’ve no option
If we are to all survive
But if this is what is called living
Do we really want to be alive?

Now know that there’s a heaven
A better place to be
No pain no death no sorrow
A place where we’ll be free

Imagine all the people
Living there at peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
Well I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

LOCKDOWN DAY

Just a lockdown day
I don’t try to, even dress
Just eat and drink, to excess
That ain’t on

Just a lockdown day
Spend the time, so alone
Can’t do this all on my own
It’s no fun

Oh, it’s such a lockdown day
(I wish) I could spend it with you
All of these lockdown days
They just keep lingering on
They just keep us lingering on

Just a lockdown day
Loved ones I long to see
All of them kept from me
For too long

Just a lockdown day
Sadness fills every hour
Freedom no longer ours
It’s all gone

Oh, it’s such a lockdown day
(I wish) I could spend it with you
All of these lockdown days
They just keep lingering on
They just keep us lingering on

We’re going to reap, just what we sow
We’re going to reap, just what we sow
We’re going to reap, just what we sow
We’re going to reap, just what we sow

After Lou Reed
