Music to my ears

Jelaluddin Rumi:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense.

The Staple Singers:

I know a place 
Ain’t nobody cryin’ 
Ain’t nobody worried 
Ain’t no smilin’ faces  
Lyin’ to the races 
Help me, come on, come on 
Somebody, help me now (I’ll take you there) 
Help me, ya’all

Bob Marley:

When the whole world lets you down
And there’s nowhere for you to turn,.
Then you try to accumulate,
But the whole world is full of hate,
So all of your best starts just drift into space.
I know a place where we can carry on.
And there are people like you, people like me
People need to be free.
And there’s a place in the sun
Where there is love for everyone,
Where we can be, yeah.
We can carry on, we can carry on.
