Come Monday...WhiteHeart Songs and Lyrics

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

My love affair with the music of [WhiteHeart] ignited the first time I heard [THE FLAME PASSES ON] coming through the speakers in my pick-up truck as I was headed north on MO 37 between Purdy and Monett in [Barry County, Missouri] while listening to [KADI] in 1993.  Since then, their music has helped me to [FIND A WAY] to keep going when quitting seemed to make much more sense, and I hope their music proves to be as much of a help to you.

That is the opening paragraph to the introduction of a new site, by the name of [WhiteHeart Songs andLyrics], that we launched over the course of a couple of days last week. It includes 118 of their songs, which I think is just about all of their officially recorded ones.

Be assured that I am not trying to profit off of their success, nor would I want to without being made sure of it being okay with the band and the various labels they have recorded under over the years.  In fact, I will not even include Google Adsense on the site.

After being unable to find the lyrics to many of their songs over the years, it became a dream of mine to make as many of them available online as I would be allowed and enabled to, and what started out as around 60 of their songs grew to the 118 I now have in my personal collection.  Of course, without being familiar with the song, the lyrics to it are often found lacking.  So, I [B-Tubed] them all in order to have an embeddable MP3 player for each one on the site, and I will be replacing the videos that are already in place on the various WhiteHeart Wednesdays that have been posted here in the past and on The Trib for the last several months.

One of the main reasons for that is on account of [EMI] wanting YouTube to block the playing of WhiteHeart songs from the [Emergency Broadcast album] for some reason.  One would think that the owner of the rights to a 16 year-old album would want all of the exposure to it as they could get in order to keep that cash register ringingbut who am I to question the wisdom of record label executives?

Anyway, the only thing I want is for as many as possible to be able enjoy as much of WhiteHeart’s music as possible.  Now, I love some of their songs much more than others, but I would not consider any of them as being not very good.  With their style ranging from a rather soft and more traditional form of contemporary Christian music to down’n’dirty blues and heavy metal anthems, I am quite sure that there is at least one song that you will have to listen to over and over again.

As I said (so to speak) earlier, WhiteHeart’s music has helped me to find a way to keep going when quitting seemed to make much more sense, and I sure needed some help with that before the new site was completed.  For after I had published what I had on a little less than half of the 118 songs, the Google/Blogger spam filter started wondering if I was a robot because of publishing too much too soon.  Yep, you got it, I had to successfully decipher a word verification puzzle for each and every post from then on.

Yeah, I have no doubt that some soulless minion in his cubical deep down in the catacombs under the Google campus is still laughing his tookis off over doing that to me after I have made such a fuss over their wonderful word verification spam prevention option.  In any event, I hope to see you over on the new site.

I feel the chill of autumn’s wind
Seasons changin’ once again
And every moment’s best
Still one moment less
We spend
Together my friend
I can't hold back these tears in my eyes
This time I won't even try
For time has come and gone
Now we must move on
I'll admit I don't know why

Now we must say good-bye
To find our road ahead
Destiny leads us on
To another place
But I'll meet you there someday
Oh oh
Whoa oh

We chase the future into past
Only to find that it never lasts
By the time it's gone
The pain is so strong
And yet
Oh listen my friend
Though we've lost what was before
Forever will bring us the chance once more
In that time we'll see
What was meant to be
A special moment
To cherish
For all of our lives

And we'll know in time
Why we must say good-bye
To find our road ahead
Destiny leads us on
To another place
Oh but I'll meet you there
From the lives we all leave behind
We find there's much more ahead
The Father will lead us on
To a better place
And I'll meet you there someday
I'll meet you there someday
I'll meet you there someday
Oh oh
Oh oh
