THE LEVINS - God's Spies ( Shakespeare, King Lear) 

In Studio Video - WPKN RADIO interview
Thank you Jim Motavalli (host of WPKN Radio in Bridgeport, CT) for filming / posting this video from our in-studio  session.( Feb, 2015)  We had such a good time at that interview!  This song is from our new CD, TRUST and based on Shakespeare's, King Lear.

As requested, lyrics are below. )
 
God’s Spies (King Lear Act 5, scene 3)  The LEVINS © 2014

Sometimes love's depth can find no words to paint the picture
properly
 break the silence, speak your truth or court uncertain misery.

For some it's all a battleground, reaping sorrow from mock rage 
But the two of us, together we'll sing like birds...even when we're feeling caged.

 

As we head off it occurs to me, there are so many ways to give 

Like in King Lear act 5 scene 3…so we'll live,

 

And pray, and sing, and tell old tales and laugh at gilded butterflies,

And take upon's the mystery of things, as if we were God's spies

 

We can rail against the storm, keep the fool for company

Be sad, go mad, become a crown-less king, still it's down to you and me.

 

The news is like the tide with who loses and who wins.

Pacts and sects of great ones, who is out and who is in

ebb and flow by the moon while we're wandering on the Heath.

Oh that fickle changing loon with us playing underneath.

 

As we head out, it occurs to me, there is still time to forgive 

Like in King Lear act 5 scene 3…so we'll live,

 

And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh at gilded butterflies,

And take upon's the mystery of things, as if we were God's spies

 

We are telling different tales. Secrets falling from our lips.

When our eyes are free from scales we can see what was eclipsed.

 

So we'll pray, and sing, and tell old tales and laugh at gilded butterflies,

And take upon's the mystery of things, as if we were God's spies

We will be sharing the evening with a fabulous musician and friend. It's a benefit for a wonderful foundation that helps young adults build whole and healthy lives whether through the arts, social justice or in general. It's our favorite non-profit to support and quite an honor to present on their behalf.  We had a rehearsal in the Catskills with Billy Jonas last week.  We loaded our equipment into the gym of a Holiday Inn Express and filled the place with music.  We had a blast and you will too.  Lot of singing that involves you, so join us!
