Return (“Nocturne” (by Celtic Women) Parody)

I LOVE the mystery and heavenly quality of this song. It sounds like an angel’s song. But the real words are a little nonsensical and fluffy. So here’s my parody. I really want to sing this song, but my voice isn’t quite strong enough to do it justice. One day…

Now let the grey
Just slip and fade
so the light it may wash over you

Once young, you grew
in silent truth
and it embraces your heart and your soul
don’t turn

you may cry
even sigh
you will even wonder why
He’ll always see
always be
One you loved when you were young
don’t turn

have no fear
as the night draws near
the skies fill with dragons and fire

like a child or sheep
here’s your shepherd, sleep
you will find Him there waiting for you
return

you can fly
claim the sky
see your dragons roar and cry
He’ll always see
always be
the One you loved when you were young
Love Him

Though dreams may fade
they will give way
to the heaven we saw
from the earth
don’t turn

Castle On a Cloud (Les Miserables) (Heaven Parody)

So this one is easy to convert. In the story, Cosette is longing for a heavenly home, one where she isn’t abused or worked. If you change a few words, it’s easily a song about heaven. I guess I love songs about heaven.

I know a castle on a cloud.
I’m gonna go there when I sleep.
Aren’t any floors for me to sweep.
Not in the castle in the clouds.

There is a room that’s full of toys,
There are a hundred boys and girls!
And nobody cries or shouts too loud,
Not in the Castle in the clouds.

There is a man all dressed up in white,
Holds me and sings a lullaby,
He lights the world and life to us.
He says “My dear, I love you very much.”

I know a place where no one’s lost.
I know a place where no one cries.
Crying at all is not allowed.
Not in the Castle in the clouds.

When I’m Gone (Heaven Parody)

I love this song! But I also like putting my own words to songs, so they have more meaning for me. Life is easier with others. When someone falls down, the other can pick him up. God made other people for a reason. Our journey down the narrow road becomes a lot easier when we have people around us to smack us when we’re being dumb.

I’ve got my ticket for the long way ’round
that road, the narrowest of ways
And I sure would like some sweet company
Leavin’ tomorrow, won’t you come?

[2x]
When I’m gone,
when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

I’ve got my ticket for the long way ’round
the one that’s headed way up there
It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers
It’s got sights to give you shivers
the way is easier with you

[3x]
When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
