Come to me now dove on your shoulder
White flame of love burns on your breast
I am ready for flight
Oh, my wings are so ripe
Come wake me
Take me from the nest

My scarlet ship sails sacred oceans
Where tides of love have laid to rest
Quiet water by night
Oh, my sails are so ripe
Come wake me
Take me from the nest

And weave your beauty, fire lacing through me
Trip the light and know that I am waiting for you
Unlock the treasure of stolen pleasure
Breathe in the light that blinds the pain that we once knew.

Wake me Take me

Come to me now dove on your shoulder
White flame of love burns on your breast
I am ready for flight
Oh, my wings are so ripe
Come wake me
Take me from the nest
From the nest...

The local sororities across the street used to call it "the BOD house."  Not many curtains on the windows so I trust you get the reason? 


 

Board of Directors?
Better of Dead?
Brotherhood of Doom?
Benefit of Doubt?
Bag of Doughnuts?

Wow. 

Like others have said this one rips wide open my memories; and carries me back to certain younger days.  Early college, living just off campus in a larger (student) group house much akin to Animal House...and well before that movie came out.  A big, old, Victorian house with a wrap-round porch.  Lot'sa "long hairs" lived therein.  The local sororities across the street used to call it "the BOD house."  Not many curtains on the windows so I trust you get the reason? 

I almost literally turned my turn-table into a lathe from having played this one so much.  Vinyl shavings...they were everywhere!  Heh!  Nice album cover, too.  I blew it up and put it above the fireplace in my solo one room in that house.  Yeah...I know...fireplace...it was a popular room.  {#Roflol}  Student styled livin'...were the days ever so simple as them times, eh?  Sometimes it seems you spend the rest of your life trying to get back to that kind of simplicity. 

But I digress.  Did I mention this one blows open my memories?  Old stuff, new stuff, some good, some weird.  And some awful.  But all of it the basic reason why RP is my go to site whenever I want to listen to music.  And that is almost all the time.

Wow. Not just the song, but how others memories resonate with my own experiences of this song and time when I listened to it. I too had a record "re-groover"!

I do wish he stayed in the super chill vibe more and had less of those louder choruses though... his soft sounds just sends me to really cool places, then I get yanked back when I'm not quite ready! But still, gotta like JS here, nice one Bill!

Good song. Somehow I don't think I've ever heard of this guy.

 
Me either, I just clicked in to comment on the apparent child of Jethro Tull. 

Very nice find RP.  
Another RP reminder of some vinyl to pull out & dust off for my enjoyment again.

Wow Flash back. 
He was one of my main stays once upon a time. The Dragon is dancing and Original tap dancing kid were my go to once upon a time
Good song. Somehow I don't think I've ever heard of this guy.
Isle of View was a go-to recording in my college days 78-82 in Norman, OK...He made the rounds in Norman and TULSA and seemed to have a loyal following in the Midwest...Every show was a religious experience...He was so tall and had such s presence...🌛
wow
Finally! Jimmie Spheeris is on RP! Thank you Bill!
A really good artist in the 70\'s and early 80\'s to bad more aren\'t listening to all the words of his songs. Why not try playing \"I AM THE MERCURY\", \"SEVEN VIRGINS\" OR \"LET IT FLOW\". I keep hoping you\'ll him more often.
