A World Of Our Making


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I'm an S.C.A. member for nearly 30 years now, doing the Medieval Re-creation stuff. This is a song about what that organization means to its more dedicated members. Not a hit, for sure - but a pleasant little tune (I hope you agree). Might apply to other "escapist" endeavors, too.

Lyrics
We dream of great adventures. We talk of courtly love / and high romance.
We share the tales of history that we are dreaming of / and as we dance,
These alter egos hear a distant tune that’s all too rare.
We share a fragile fantasy, and I hope to see you there.

This is a world of our making. We choose the role we play.
It’s not only time we’re taking. It’s not just get-ting away.
That friendship that the world is oft forsaking
That kinship that we all hold dear
Alive in this world of our making,
and I wish that we all could stay here.

We all strive for the better - to learn and share and do / these many things
From subtle to profound, to virtues that are true / of queens and kings
These things all come together in a great variety
To make a world that’s all out own - this grand society.

We share our hopes and passions, the times we face defeat / and victory
We gather at our table. A pleasure when we meet / like family
And each of us a player on this stage where we are free
to leave that other life behind and be who we can be.

The real world can be so unfeeling - so completely beyond our control.
And there a monster lies, concealing the artifice that swallows up your soul.

This is a world of our making. We choose the role we play.
It’s not only time we’re taking. It’s not just get-ting away.
That friendship that the world is oft forsaking
That kinship that we all hold dear
Alive in this world of our making,
and I wish that we all could stay here.

A dream that we enjoy after waking.
It’s a dream so far away and yet so near
Yes, this is a world of our making,
and a world that we all hold so dear.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
