Incredible String Band 1966

When the Music Starts To Play
by Mike Heron

All my life and it's been a short one;
I've met the happy and the sad together.
I chased the soft warm air that flew before me,
And through the storm on wings of love,
the song of life bore me.

And when the music starts to play let e be around, (I said)
When the music starts to play let me be around.
Oh, can't you see how my heart soars high,
When I hear that music.
When the music starts to play let me be around.

When sadness lays his cold fist on my shoulder,
And pushes me in icy waters drowning,
The gentle hand of music lifts me smiling,
And through these sounds my heart takes bounds,
I happy am.


Womankind
by Robin Williamson

I sing for love of womankind,
I have one in my heart and mind,
Low, my heart aches for her.

My soul swims naked in her streams,
And in her meadows lies to dream,
Hay, what need to waken.

Her breast blow blossom in my hands,
Her eyes shine moons on secret lands,
As through my clouds her raven thoughts go flying.

Space nearly parts and nearly joins,
Love's magic song moans through her loins,
Well hay, the league-long sweets of loving.

May she glow always in her sun,
have nothing lost and nothing won,
Oh, now what fear can chain her?

Oh blessed is he who joys and grieves Who wears the coat the rainbow weaves Lo, around his body.
