Episode #8: Part 2 – A Matter of Life and Death

Scattershot Symphony -The Music of Peter Link
A Podcast


Episode #8: Part 2
A Matter of Life and Death

A Matter Of Life and Death — And The Probability of Life Eternal .

This episode was written and assembled for all who, in one way or another, have been touched by the Pandemic of 2020.  That’s an audience of billions. 

Through the grace of music, moving on is looked at through a myriad of lenses as an eventual door that we all will pass through at one time or another. 

For those questioning life, in mourning, fearing for their own life or even wondering why we have all come to this, it is my hope that they will find some solace from the enlightenment of these songs and the gentle nature of the content of this episode.

Episode 8 is presented in two parts. 
This is Part 2.

Listeners should always start with Part 1, knowing that Part two brings us to a greater clarity on the subject of Life Eternal.

    Angel of the Darkest Night
    Music and Lyrics by Mindy Jostyn

    Angel of the darkest night
    How did you find me here?
    Just when I had lost the fight
    And cried my final tear
    I only prayed for peace of mind
    You gave me so much more
    Angel of the darkest night
    You showed me heaven's door

    Like a ship tossed on the sea
    Far from any land
    Her sails torn by fearful storms
    And waves to dwarf a man
    No chart to plan the journey home
    No compass point, no guide
    Why must we be so far gone
    Before we see the light?

    Angel of the darkest night
    How did you lead me through despair?
    To let me see the sky again
    To let me breathe the air

    Angel of the darkest night
    I never could have known
    You were just the answer
    I was seeking all along
    And though I prayed for peace of mind
    You gave me so much more
    Angel of the darkest night
    You showed me heaven's door
    Heaven's door (4x)

    In Silence
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    When one you love disappears
    Like smoke they blow away
    The heartbeat rings in your ears
    In silence
    In silence

    You lose your place with it all
    And life goes hollow
    You turn your face to the wall
    In silence
    In silence

    But I am here for you
    I will see you through

    And if you weep then I will weep with you
    And if you mourn then I will mourn with you
    And if you die then I will live for you
    In silence
    In silence

    [Interlude]

    The bells they toll on the wind
    They sing of sadness
    The mending soul must begin
    In silence
    Begin in silence

    And as you bear your pain
    Your loss will be your gain

    But if you brood then I will brood with you
    And if you grieve then I will grieve with you
    And if you break then I'll be there for you
    In silence
    In silence

    We will weep
    In silence
    We will mourn
    In silence
    We'll remember in silence

    We will heal
    In silence
    We will mend
    In silence
    We'll go on in silence

    We will love
    In silence
    We endure
    In silence
    And we carry on...

    Come to Me as a Bird
    Music and Lyrics by Julie Gold

    Come to me as a bird.
    I will know it's you
    As you hover above the life we once knew.
    Though I can't hold you now
    I remain undeterred,
    And I'll know you if you
    Come to me as a bird.

    Come to me as a bird,
    Dancing in the trees.
    When the last leaves of summer cast themselves to the breeze.
    Now the season has changed.
    Now the memory's blurred
    But I'll know you if you
    Come to me as a bird.

    Come to me as a bird.
    Come to me as a bird.
    I will know you if you
    Come to me as a bird.

    Singing in my garden.
    Winging through the rain.
    I can tell you're out there,
    Staring through my pane.

    Come to me as a bird,
    Keeper of the sky.
    How I long to go with you when I see you fly.
    Once I gave you my heart,
    Now I give you my word
    I will know you if you
    Come to me as a bird.

    Come to me as a bird.
    Come to me as a bird.
    I will know you if you
    Come to me as a bird.

    Come to me as a bird.
    Come to me as a bird.
    I will know you if you
    Come to me as a bird.

    Come to me as a bird.

    I Can't Go Home
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    And now I can't go home
    No I can't go home
    Got too much to do
    So I can't go home

    There's a song in sight
    And there's all this light
    Beckoning me still
    No I can't go home

    There's a reason
    I am standing here today
    In my skin
    I've not honored
    Nearly all I could have been
    Still I am tryin' to find
    Tryin' to find peace of mind

    So I just can't go home
    No I can't go home
    Close that open door
    I just can't go home

    Let the watch fires burn
    Leave no stone unturned
    Till I find my stillness
    I just can't go home

    On this passage
    Through this strange uncharted land
    I have come
    To the mountain
    Back to where I started from
    Living from year to year
    Wondering why I'm here

    And still I can't go home
    No I can't go home
    There's far to much untold
    In this world unknown

    Till I'm satisfied
    It's a wondrous ride
    Far too far to go
    Till I go back home
    Till the seed is sown
    Till the truth be known
    I just can't go home

    Paramahansa Yogananda
    Saint Tukaram and the Muslim saints
    All the saints of all mankind

    Walkin' in step with Hindu saints

    With Mr. Louis Armstrong on trumpet
    Leadin' the way

    Walkin' in step with the Hindu saints
    And Taoist saints
    And Sufi saints
    With Mr. Louis Armstrong before them
    Blowin' his horn
    And none get left behind

    They are traveling in the footsteps
    Of those who've gone before
    They will all be reunited
    On a new and sunlit shore

    There is hope that goes before them
    And its banners fill the sky
    With a thousand million footsteps
    Echoing on high
    And oh Lord I want to be in that number
    I got to be there

    When the

    Oh when the saints go marching in

    And when the sun begins to shine
    When the sun begins to shine
    Oh Lord I want to be in that number
    When the saints go marching in

    Oh on that hallelujah day
    Yes on that hallelujah day
    Oh Lord I want to be in that number
    When the saints go marching in

    And when the revelation comes
    Yeah when that revelation comes
    Oh Lord I want to be in that number
    When the revelation comes

    Oh when the trumpet sounds the call
    Oh when Louis Armstrong sounds that call
    Oh Lord I want to be in that number
    When the saints go marching in

    Oh, when the saints go marching in
    Oh, when the saints go marching in
    Lord, how I want to be in that number
    When the saints go marching in

    Oh, when the saints go marching in
    Oh, when the saints go marching in
    Lord, how I want to be in that number
    When the saints go marching in
