Heart On A Kite String Don’t cry for me, my love Though the hour is drawing near Don’t cry for me, my love The time has come for us to part, my dear Don’t cry for me, my love Our romance is at an end I will gladly die for you, my darling For I know I will rise again My heart on a kite string Heart on a kite string Heart on a kite string I’m flying Flying away You crowned me king Every time you called my name You crowned me king Darling, every time you closed your eyes and came You crowned me king And even though I’ve lost it all There’s always one flag flying So high above these castle walls My heart on a kite string Heart on a kite string Heart on a kite string I’m flying Flying away Underneath the seven veils of mystery I have a pair of angel’s wings But, what good are they to me? I’m only flesh and blood Like all the lovers gone before I’m only flesh and blood Love leads me to believe that I can be so much more I’m only flesh and blood I stand here in this gathering gloom I will cast my silhouette So clear against that brave, romantic moon My heart on a kite string Heart on a kite string Heart on a kite string I’m flying Flying away

Swallowing The Stars Every time I think of you I am reminded of this painting by Degas Three dancers at the barre They are standing in the shadows Their bodies in repose So beautiful and so completely unaware Of just how beautiful they are Every time I think of you I am reminded of my heart in pirouette The grand jete, the releve The night we met The moon fell into shadows And all the planets Were distracted from their course I believe they are distracted yet Oh, my darling Take me down Take me deeper I ain’t your back door man I ain’t your midnight creeper I wanna be your lover, baby Hold me Hollow out my heart until the river turns to light Swallowing the stars And then deliver them again tonight Take me down Take me deeper down I ain’t your back door man I ain’t your midnight creeper I wanna be your lover, baby

Dream Of Love Once in a vision I believed in you Love everlasting, love was ever true I believed because I wanted to Now I only dream of love Down by the river in that shining hour All of the beauty and all of the power For one brief moment, darling It was ours Now I only dream of love Late in the evening, if you say my name And some of the beauty in it still remains Then all of my endeavoring Was not in vain Now I only dream of love Now I only dream of love

More Than Flesh And Blood Slowly, so slowly, ever so slowly She unbuttons her overcoat She tilts back her head as far as it will go I kiss the delicate blue vein Pulsing in her throat Baby, what are you waiting for? Slip out of your evening dress Take off that velvet choker Let down your long, black hair Take me where the music plays And the candles flicker Take me where my heart beats quicker Than my heart has ever beaten before More than flesh and blood More, if you believe More than flesh and blood More Two lovers can rise Rise above Rise Rise above In your sweat, I taste my body In your eyes, I see my face In your voice, I hear my music In your vision of me I can find a path to grace To a place That’s more than flesh and blood More, if you believe More than flesh and blood More Two lovers can rise Rise above Rise Rise above Can you hear it? Sounds like a song the angels sing Listen Is it the sound of our breathing Or the beating of our wings? Meet me tonight on the steps of the temple Come hither with a vengeance, darling Come to me We’ll go down alone into the vault of inspiration But we’ll come out together Baby, you’ll see And I will pray for you And you will pray for me More More than flesh and blood More More than flesh and blood

Rise Up Singing Fall into my arms I have no desire to make you mine No more arrows in your heart Just my fingertips along your jawline Fall away from me Before I even know to catch my breath It all just slips away There is no beauty without death And every sleeping flower holds the promise of the spring And every precious hour blooms, then fades beyond our reckoning I am bleeding faith My heart is on the wing I lay down dying But I will rise up singing No more words for now Sometime, someplace, somehow I will close my eyes and smile Fall into the sky Everything I am will evanesce Is there a love that never dies? I don’t know why but I would answer Yes I lay down sighing I lay down crying I lay down dying But I will rise up singing

On This Side Of Paradise Leave me to my own device And I will build the temple twice Love will be my Jesus Christ And death will be my Judas No one can see know the shape I’m in Underneath this bone and skin There is darkness, there is sin And there is resurrection On this side of paradise Forsake me never And wash me in the blood On this side of paradise I will give you all my love Down here at the river’s end I feel your presence strong again Love, you were my first amen And my last hallelujah On this side of paradise Forsake me never And wash me in the blood On this side of paradise I will give you all my love There ain’t no heaven, baby There ain’t no kingdom come There are not two sides, baby There’s only one You and I could take a vow As fragile as the slender bough That’s holding up the here and now That we could stay together But everything that’s precious, dear We take it off and leave it here To fade and then to disappear So kiss me like you mean it On this side of paradise Forsake me never And wash me in the blood On this side of paradise I will give you all my love Leave me to my own device And I will build the temple twice Love will be my Jesus Christ And death will be my Judas

Love Like A Halo Let’s use our imagination Predict the future of our love affair I see you standing waist deep in the water But that’s not me beside you there Me, I’m just the moonlight in your hair It’s not a matter of right or wrong It’s not a question of fidelity Hearts have reasons of their own And life’s no line from A to B Your love like a halo Love like a halo I want to be Your love like a halo On the night we said goodbye We looked up into the summer sky And you said, "Oh, how I wish you were the one” I said, "I don’t want to be the wish I want to be the star you wish upon” Love like a halo Your love like a halo I want to be Your love like a halo I want to be your wet dream I don’t want to be the father of your child Why should I be the voice of reason When I can be the call of the wild? And when your heart is broken I know my heart will break a little too And when you find someone to love I’ll care for him ‘Cause I care about you Let’s use our imagination Predict the future of our love affair I see you standing waist deep in the water But that’s not me beside you there Me, I’m just the moonlight in your hair Your love like a halo

Rob Jungklas Memphis, Tennessee

It seems that Jung Klas a man of extremes who have emotions and soul torments rush through blood and nerves as music. Sometimes he sounds like a lost soul or like a wounded animal that wants to shake his skin. Away from him
