Growing up in the 60's and listening to many Folk and then Harder than Folk music, I was always a fan of the words.
Music is great, it appeals to your hearing senses, but Words seem to appeal to much more. I cant tell you how many times, I would play a song over and over just so I could understand the words. One song that has never failed to move me and the lyrics are more than timeless.
There is a time for everything, and
a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time
to gather them, a time to embrace and
a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
This words mean so much to me, now as they did over 40 years ago. When I find myself losing my temper or getting annoyed with someone or something, IF I would only take a few minutes and saw the words to this song (more than a song, as we all know) I would be more tolerant and accepting of life's flaws
