Let my People Go by Kevin Lajiness

Song ArtworkSong Lyrics

Let my people go let my people go let my people go 
You have enslaved them you work from dawn to dust 
And you never get ahead let my people go used to be you 
Could do better than your father it just aint so it just aint so 
There’s a bounty on your head called a mortgage 
Now I’m telling you the river will turn red 
I’ll bring famine and pestilence the locus will be feed 
And if that don’t work your first born will die cause you’re killing them too 
Let my people go let my people go your killing them 
You’re killing them by taxing them to death and you’ll 
Bury them in bureaucracy when does the story end

Song Lyrics

I didn’t know I was looking for you Till you found me I want 
to know everything about you your fascinating to me I know
 what you say is true your and Indian woman your simply the
 best you rise above all the rest I say to you don’t change who
 you are Its just not me who sees you as a star 
I know your proud of your culture and where you came from 
It says something about you that you keep the light shining inside 
and you pass it on to the next generation Indian woman 
with shoulders that are broad you carry the weight of a nation 
I wish you the best I didn’t know I was looking for you 
Till you found me I want to know everything about 
you your fascinating to me I know what you say is true your and
 Indian woman your simply the best you rise above all the rest I 
say to you don’t change who you are Its just not me who sees you 
as a star I know your proud of your culture and 
where you came from It says something about you 
that you keep the light shining inside and 
you pass it on to the next generation Indian woman 
with shoulders that are broad you carry the weight of a nation 
I wish you the best

Jan's Song by Kevin Lajiness

Song Lyrics

I’m still shaking from the pain inside of me 
Not that kind of pain 
A bomb dropped inside again 
What a surprise what a surprise 
Our paths crossed how insane is that 
Thirty years gone by 
Put an end to a time now I’m back again just to be your friend 
Did you ever think I would get over you 
Now I want you to know 
I brought you down from that pedestal 
I see now you have to be yourself 
That’s how you are That’s how I see you are 
That’s how you are Let it be 
I’m still shaking from the pain inside of me 
A bomb dropped inside of me 
I never quite got over you 
I was never much a gambling man 
But I know when To hold my hand 
I think that I shall hold it for you 
Just so you know what that really means 
I’ll Let you be who you are

Serenade Princess

Song Lyrics

Tell me what you want to hear from me 
and I’ll speak it to you tell 
Me what you want me to be and I’ll be that man 
You make me want to be all that I can 

and I want to make you feel happy 
If I were a Knight in shinning armor 

I would sleigh any dragon for you 
If you were Rapunzel I’d rescue you my princess 
And on weekends by the sea we would ride

off into the sunset 
And make love by the light of the moon my princess 
There’s a lighthouse on the bay with a room on top 
The beckon blinking like the beat of the heart 
We could spend our nights up there in the clouds 
And the angels sing a nightly tone in the shadows

The Writings On the Wall

In times of trouble we act out all our feeling:
Where do they come from, The Writings on the Wall
where do they come from
Where do they come from
where do they come from
The writings on the Wall
Speculation is a gamble but the habit of Meditation is the
Basis for all knowledge
Where does it come from
Where does it come from
Where does it come from, The Writings on the Wall
You can tell when someones Leaving
There's a Prelude to the Performance before the final Play
It's in the Writing
It's in the Writing
It's in the Writing on the Wall

"I'm going to rewrite this soon to include some life events" Here's the dealeo, I started doing Wood Sculptures about 15 years ago to try and keep myself busy after I stopped drinking and smoking. About 5 years into it I got throat and neck Cancer. I say this because before I had the Cancer I had not written or sung Music. Looking to clean up an open space in late 2007 and 2008 ( i became closer to some of the local wild life, I bonded with a Hawk and a Baby duck and started to write songs, I forced myself to sing when I could, I have over three hundred songs now, some good, some not so good, but I am getting better at writing, singing, mixing and arranging.    

New:"Charleena"2013 "The River" 2013 and "Cried and Cried My life Story"2012 others "Reflections Destiny"2012 "Kevin'ns Epic Music"2012 "Fire Storm Of Emotion" 2012"Angel Secrets"2012 All 18 Available at my Store Lajiness

  I write from a position of emotion and honesty, usually tell a story about love, life, relationships, nature, adventure, history, spirituality,philosophy etc. My Art and Music style is Naive, I beat mix looped instruments as accompaniments but the melodies don't necessarily match, but I put a great deal of thought into them and try and bring something epic to bear in mind, yet some of my songs are ballads and relaxing songs of love . 
   I have 5 song books/ songbooks online 4 of them avalable as google e-books my "The 2009"  and 2010 Song Book 2011 Song Book  and 
Kevin Lajiness 2012 Song Book Lajiness 2013-2014 Song Book (Google eBook)
 These books represent a ton of work , good bad or indifferent. I apologize ahead of time for typo's English and spelling, i suck at all of that, but it's about the music and lyrics and that's what really matter but I gave it my best.
 with some links to the songs , some I have taken down, (I am going to try and put them all back up for nostalgia and to show my progress from Throat and neck Cancer), but the lyrics are all there
  I have many slideshows/Videos of nature and Open Space pic's over the years that I put to my music on YouTube-kevinlajiness  and saved in Google + or Picasa.

  I grew up on Lake Erie Lagoons, my grandfather had a bate shop. Fishing and hunting was big on my fathers side no doubted stemmed from the fact that his ancestors were “Woods Runners” or “coureurs des bois”. As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for trees, nature and the environment, I attribute that, and the spiritual connection I have with mother earth, to the connection my ancestors had with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Most if not all of them are child friendly. I started writing my early songs while working on a open space for a year, where I bonded with a hawk and a duck.

        Allot of what I draw from comes from life’s experience and what’s in my heart, what I believe is a responsibility to carry the messages of or ancestors on what is right, to come to a conclusion we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that we pass that on to our children in story and song,but remember i am an artist I write story and rhyme, lesson and fable, I do not try to be politically correct.even though i don't use cuss words other that Hell and dam, I don't have a problem with artist that do,to each there own, I believe things evolve for a reason, hey it got someone out of the slums, by the way the baby duck that followed me home got to big and i gave her to a zoo keeper, she flew back to his house from the zoo and they raised her, she has since had her own baby's
