exit -shuffle stage right…. Carberry Finale/celebration weekend


the shuffle function on the Ipod may be the subject of rumours and questioning, but sometimes it gets the results so right.

we drove away quietly.
as we sat in the car i plugged in my non-generic mp3 player selected music, songs and pressed shuffle.

When I was born,
my daddy said i was broken
the beginning of the end of a life i hadn’t chosen.
he taught me how to give up, taught me how to work the system
but i never had the time.
i never had the luxury.

life’s hard i’ve always known that,
I’ve never been handed no welcome mat
When i die, please don’t cry,
cause heaven’s my home anyhow.

shining my shoes
seems like time for wasting
cause this bright sun
is the only shine i need
they say you only live once
and lot you gets for keeping
but glory’s gonna come
and make a new man out of me.

life’s hard i’ve always known that,
I’ve never been handed no welcome mat
When i die, please don’t cry,
cause heaven’s my home anyhow.

When I was born,
my face was like the angels
i took my father by the hand,
and said life won’t be hard now.

life’s hard i’ve always known that,
I’ve never been handed no welcome mat
When i die, please don’t cry,
cause heaven’s my home anyhow.

Heavens my home anyhow
Heavens my home anyhow
Heavens my home anyhow

life’s hard i’ve always known that,
I’ve never been handed no welcome mat
When i die, please don’t cry,
cause heaven’s my home anyhow.

Heavens my home by The Duhks from the album Migrations

followed by

I wanna know if it would be alright
To be with you tonight
I am undone

Wait, don’t go
Don’t let my heart turn to stone
Fear, it has no home
When you are near

Cause I need you now
More than then
I need you to let your rain
Down on me
Let it fall
All around me

Wait, don’t hide
Please shelter me in your side
From there my strength is derived
I am done

So, is that the way the story goes?
In your arms, I know
It’s alright

I can hear the sound
Of rain coming down

Undone by the Violet Burning from the album I am a stranger in this place

It just seemed to make a bunch of sense!
one song about the desire of someone who will be leaving soon to be remembered happily. one song about being undone and how safety strength and rain comes from God not a place or an event.

sometimes the shuffle gets it so right…
