 ONCE UPON AMERICA
© 2010 Author: Dawn Maracle
What does it mean to be an American
It seems itís changed over night
The pledge of Allegiance to our flag
One nation under God indivisible
Itís fading out of sight
Donít say those words we were founded on
So politically incorrect
The early light no early dawn
Divided weíll fall Iíll bet
Angry winds volcanic ash
Nashvilleís under water
I can hear the thunder and wall street crash
Nothing for our sonís and daughters
History repeats itself it seems we never learn
Just read the books upon your shelf
One more page to turn
Can you hear the cries of dying life                             
The Gulf now black with oil
The earth is rumbling about our sin
The West Virginia mines are caving in
See the terrorists with no love
our government ignoring God above
Jobs are scarce our money is too
Canít even recognize this place
                                                       God help the human race                                      Back to Top
God bless America
And God bless you

Two People  
Dawn Maracle
Two people on a rock looking down on the world they say
Two people on a rock oh what a day
Two people on a rock and the light shone down on them
Two people in love in love again
Two people were walking in paradise they say
nobody but them that day
If anyone asked it would always be this way
until a cold and snowy day
Look away Look away Look away can you look away
Look away Look away Look away sometimes you gotta look away
sometimes the story books have endings
not quite the way that we'd have planned
and when the cards have all been dealt out
sometimes you need another hand
Look away Look away Look away can you look away
Look away Look away Look away sometimes you gotta look away
Snow white has played a larger part now
and Cinderella had to leave the ball
cause virgin white took Charming's head and heart now
and golden coaches are just pumpkins after all
Look away Look away Look away can you look away
Look away Look away Look away sometimes you gotta look away
Two people on a rock looking down on the world they say
Two people on a rock oh what a day
Two people on a rock and the light shone down on them
Two people in love in love again
Two people in love and they walk away
                                                           Two people in love and they look away                                     Back to Top


EVERYBODY  
Dawn Maracle
audio link
Everybody wants to take what you've got
Everybody wants to take what you've earned
Everybody wants to see you get hurt
Everybody wants to see you go down and burn
Everybody out there wants to fraud and scam
tell you that they'll take you to the promised land
lie and cheat you out of your hard earned cash
just to fill their pockets in a hurried flash now
Bridge
Don't you believe it when they tellin' you
they've got the answer that your lookin' for
another easy way to rob you blind it's cool
another fool another dollar more
Chorus
Na na na na it's a shame
na na na na now it's not the same
na na na na well it's upside down
what's right is wrong
and it's turned around
what's right is wrong and it's turned around aaaaaaaah
Everybody wants to see you suffer
Everybody wants to hurt another
Everybody wants to be the one who
rises to the top wearing their disguises now
Someone had a heart they let them slide
Someone told them that there were no more free rides
I couldn't believe when I heard her say
someone did something nice it's wrong that way
Bridge
Don't you believe it when they tellin' you
they've got the answer that your lookin' for
another easy way to rob you blind it's cool
another fool another dollar more
Chorus
Na na na na it's a shame
na na na na now it's not the same
na na na na well it's upside down
what's right is wrong and it's turned around
what's right is wrong and it's turned around

TRUSTING YOU  
Dawn Maracle
audio link
Too many nights have I waited for you
to come to me oh Lord
How many times have I cried in the night
waiting for your light
To come to me oh Lord

Chorus
And when I come to the end of my rope
That's when it happens and you give me hope
To go on to go on trusting you you


God how I've tried to show I can be strong
And you know I have
I have had faith and believed what I asked
Has been done by you

Chorus
And when I come to the end of my rope
That's when it happens and you give me hope
To go on to go on trusting you

Whistle - Solo

You have put desires into my heart
Before time it's true
and I must patiently wait for your time
I believe in you

Chorus
And when I come to the end of my rope
That's when it happens and you give me hope
To go on to go on                                                               
To go on to go on loving you you
Trusting you trusting you trusting you trusting you trusting you
Trusting you trusting you trusting you trusting you trusting you

GOOD LUCK BAD LUCK  
Dawn Maracle
Audio Demo
Sometimes you win sometimes you lose
I am told it's only what you choose
You control your life your destiny
But I think that they are blind and do not see
Chorus
Some have blind luck and some do not (ooh no no )
some get it all without a thought ( you know they do you know they do now now)
Still others struggle all their lives they work so hard
Knocked down each time that they try
Who you are you know just where you stand
Hard or not some kill some lend a hand
Deep inside a force is telling you
Good luck bad luck tells you just how you will choose
Chorus
Some have blind luck and some do not (ooh no no )
some get it all without a thought ( you know they do you know they do now now)
Still others struggle all their lives they work so hard
Knocked down each time that they try
Scat Instrumental
Too many times some may want out
While others flash their cash all about
You can never tell who may do what
Insane is sane and sane acts like a nut
Chorus
Some have blind luck and some do not (ooh no no )
some get it all without a thought ( you know they do you know they do now now)
Still others struggle all their lives they work so hard
Knocked down each time that they try
Good luck bad luck Good luck bad luck Good luck bad luck

Right now I wish you could stand in my shoes
You think it's so easy to do what I do

That's why I keep pushin' your pressure away
Ive got pressure pressure pressure pressure

I've got pressure pressure pressure pressure
I've got it on my mind all the time
You don't want to be here with me tonight

I know they will only turn out to be like you
and give me pressure pressure pressure pressure

you give me pressure pressure pressure pressure

I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS (THE BRIGHT RED BULB)  
DAWN MARACLE
Audio link
THERE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE
HUNG A BULB BRIGHT AND RED
A CHILDS FACE LOOKING BACK AT ME
GAZING AWE STRUCK INNOCENCE
A MEMORY NOT SOON FORGOTTEN, VIVID AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
AND WITH EACH CHRISTMAS COMES THAT BRIGHT RED BULB
HANGING HIGHER ON THE TREE UP THERE
CHORUS:
I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS AS IT WAS WHEN I WAS YOUNG
I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS AND THE BRIGHT RED BULB THAT HUNG (FROM THE TREE) I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS
THE FACE OF MY CHILD STILL IN THE BULB
I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS THAT'S THE WAY I ALWAYS WILL REMEMBER CHRISTMAS
NOW THERE ARE OTHER LITTLE ONES WHO'S FACES WILL BE SEEN
FROM THE BOTTOM OF A CHRISTMAS TREE IN A BULB BRIGHT RED (MAYBE GREEN) SO ONCE AGAIN IT HANGS LOW ON THE BOTTOM
JUST LIKE IT DID WHEN I WAS A LITTLE CHILD NOW ANOTHER LITTLE FACE INSTEAD (LOOKS IN THE BULB) WILL SING
CHORUS
SO MANY CHRISTMAS'S AGO SO MANY THAT HAVE PAST
I WONDER WILL THEIR MEMORY FADE OR BE LIKE MINE AND LAST
TO SEE THE FUTURES CHILDREN
AS THEY'RE GAZING IN A BRIGHT RED BULB
                                                WONDERING JUST LIKE I DID WHAT WOULD THE FUTURE HOLD                   Back to Top
WILL THEY BE SINGING
CHORUS

Fly Away
Dawn Maracle 
Audio link
I need some, some time and some space
Get out of this crazy race
Close my eyes universal ties
Ties that bind
My spirit and mind
Open wings and fly away fly away
White wolves are calling me
On a mountain top over cosmic seas
The wind is blowin' all through my hair
The wind is blowin' it's blowin' every where
Open wings and fly away fly away
Instrumental
Meditation is the key to this door
Relaxation is on a distant shore
Never come back if I could stay
I wanna come back oh everyday
Open wings and fly away fly away

Cryptic movements a random show
A unique form of communications
Getting loud Getting quiet
What a challenge what a riot
A Sherlock Holmes mystery
The answer just came to me there within the vicinity

You and me in the vicinity

THE POETRY OF DAWN MARACLE  
DEDICATED TO ALL WHO HAVE INSPIRED THESE WRITINGS EVEN THIS IS INSPIRATION 12/29/98

After you have read this poetry you will have a profound understanding of who I am today and my philosophies about life, love, my Lord and Savior. Who I am now is only a temporary state and is ever changing. The worse thing that can happen to a soul is to become stagnant and closed to any growth that God would have prepared and waiting for us to reach out and take. Ask and ye shall receive. Please God let me grow. Do not hoard your god given gifts. Empty your cup to that God may fill it up again to over flowing. Then you will see the cup not only becomes full again but, it also becomes larger. God will not give us more than we can handle, be it bad or GOOD! God is my highest power and it is that power that has inspired these writings. Without God I would not have the insight into any of the subject matter within the following pages. For a greater understanding of the words within these pages I would suggest an open heart, mind, prayer and meditation about what you are about to partake. This is the True Supper That I dine on.
