Follow the white Rose petals,  Bertien van Oppen 10-11-2019

 

When summer starts, autumn grieves, winter comes and spring leaves.             

Let your heart grow warm in the cold winter sleeves.

Learn to love, even when you can’t see it from the bright eye.            

Learn it’s always there, like the branches reaching out to the sky.

 

Follow the white rose petals even when you have to throw them yourself.

Don’t leave your hopes and dreams on a dust coat on a shelf.                

Don’t wait till the rain melts down the silver coat.

Get yourself together every season, get on your reary float.

 

At springtime the branches will fill themselves up with little leaves.                     

An every time miracle that unfolds itself for the one who believes.

Wrap yourself around the soft warm summer breeze.                 

With your feet, standing, falling, holding down to the flowers so at ease.

 

Follow the white rose petals even when you have to throw them yourself.

Don’t leave your hopes and dreams on a dust coat on a shelf.                

Don’t wait till the rain melts down the silver coat.

Get yourself together every season, get on your reary float.

 

Don’t wait, don’t wait, till the rain melts down.

Hopes and dreams, hopes and dreams never let you down.



The same moon 13 oktober 2019  Bertien van Oppen

 

Where are you now, where are you now?

I don't know what to do when I don't  find you.  I don't have a clue.

 

Are we longing for the same moon?

Or is it too soon, for the same moon?

 

What if heaven is on earth?

And that we never left before birth.

(Our innerworld is the true worth.)

 

Take your innerworld to the earth.

Beautiful flowers bloom from the dirt, let them bloom from the dirt.

 

Time is just an illusion, every day 

an infusion of the reality of our hearts' confusion.

 Just live your own inner worlds solution.

 

Living in a place with different ideas

It's just around the corner of reality release.

 

There is more than just one moon.

We will see it soon, we don't have to wait till noon.

 

Time is just an illusion, every day 

an infusion of the reality of our hearts' confusion.

 Just live your own inner worlds solution.

 

Let your heart grow and let your love flow.

Even when you're looking for your own Rainbow.

( Just move on now.)

 

Just reach out for your divine guide.

It's so bright it 's your inner light.

 

Time is just an illusion, every day 

an infusion of the reality of our hearts' confusion.

Just live your own inner worlds solution.



The Forces Anarchie, Bertien van Oppen 19 oktober 2019

 

What can’t be seen by the human eye,

Is what we all will deny.

In the perception of inbetween,

Interfering till be seen.

Is there a magical event taking place? 

Or an illusional dream showing it’s face? Showing its face

 

The forces anarchie marches gently on.

The moment you experience it, it will be gone.

Let it go, let it go. Let it through your mind flow.

Let it reveal itself so you will know, let it go.

 

Reality can be seen through an open eye.

And we still call it a ly.

When rain comes down so fast.

The future looks like the past.

The roof will be on the floor.

So we run and kick through an open door. An open door

 

The forces anarchie marches gently on.

The moment you experience it, it will be gone.

Let it go, let it go. Let it through your mind flow.

Let it reveal itself so you will know, let it go.

Let it go.

 

Love will be the key for all we want to be

Only love can be used to set us free.

We all know those lyrics well.

But still we are looking for a place to dwell.

Dwelling down the conscious brain.

The reality in the illusion will maintain. Will maintain.

 

The forces anarchie marches gently on.

The moment you experience it, it will be gone.

Let it go, let it go. Let it through your mind flow.  

Let it reveal itself so you will know, let it go.

Let it go.



Show me the way, 9-2-2017 Bertien van Oppen

 

There is a place on earth, I long to be.

Torn in pieces through human cruelty.

 

Hold your breath

Hold me instead

 

Show me the way, where I can stay.

Where in all those cruelty, a peaceful life can be.

 

Every day my heart dies a little bit.

A solitary life, I can’t deal with.

 

There is not much we have said.

Love me instead

 

 Show me the way, where I can stay.

 Where in all those cruelty, a peaceful life can be.



On a rainy monday morning the sun breaks through the clouds.

It couldn’t be a better moment to announce.

 

I hold your hand, you hold mine too.

Everything you lead me to in this world is new.

 

Hold your breath,

Hold me instead

 

Show me the way, where I can stay.

Where in all those cruelty, a peaceful life can be.



Fly with the birds  8-11-2019 tekst deel 23-2-2020 muziek Bertien van Oppen

 

Just reach out for the blue heavenly sky.

Hold my heart open wide and fly.

Even when they said, I couldn’t, I gave it a try.

There is no one out there, who can teach you how to fly.

 

When I fly with birds in a feather.

I can fly through all kinds of weather.

When I fly with the birds in the rainbow sky.

It will open up their hearts, for the ones who dare to fly.

 

I have to find my own peaceful way.

The road is blurred and I have no place to stay.

Just a navigating heart, but it’s a start.

Nothing can drive our spirits apart.

 

When I fly with birds in a feather.

I can fly through all kinds of weather.

When I fly with the birds in the rainbow sky.

It will open up their hearts, for the ones who dare to fly.

 

I’m standing on a mountain top, with an open wing.

But my eyes can see beyond every promising thing.

Now I fold my wings open wide.

I just fly with an honest heart as a guide.

 

It’s good to stand alone for time.

But standing alone forever is a heartache crime.

 

When I fly with birds in a feather.

I can fly through all kinds of weather.

When I fly with the birds in the rainbow sky.

It will open up their hearts, for the ones who dare to fly.

 

Wild rose 24-12-2017 Bertien van Oppen 

 

On the top of the hill the wild rose grows. 

A soft smell goes where the river flows.

In spring ist shows it’s beautiful skin. 

A beautiful heart lies within,             

A beautiful heart lies within 

 

Hold your heart where your loved one goes.

And all the wisdom the wild rose knows.

In summer it shows it’s beautiful colours.

It will make your true love's collar. 

It will make your true love’s collar.

Refrein blijft gelijk in traponatie

 

Wild rose 

Goes to sleep 

There’s no 

Reason to weep 

She’s going to sleep

Wild rose 

 

Hold the last summer rose close. 

You can’t find it when it already snows.

 In autumn the last petals fall. 

But it’s heart is still growing tall. 

It's heart is still growing tall. 

 

On the wild roses' food there grows no leaf. 

But you know when you believe. 

In winter it’s fast asleep. 

With its seeds far in the deep.

With its seeds far in the deep.

 

Wild rose 

Goes to sleep 

There’s no 

Reason to weep 

She’s going to sleep

Wild rose 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Into the forest  Bertien van Oppen 24-4-2018                   

 

You’re not alone when you’re dreaming

When you dream 

Just take your dream into the forest, just go.

II: It will flow, it will flow :II into the forest it will flow. 

  

Let the forest take you, it's no mistake to do. 

Let is take you to a new day. 

Let it speak from your mouth, there is so much to….. 

Ohhhh, let your dreamsgo, where the wind blows.

 

Choose the path your heart knows

Walk where the stream flows 

Just move your feet through the fallen leaves, fallen leaves. 

No grief, no grief

For every fallen leave there is no grief.

 

Let the forest take you, it's no mistake to do. 

Let's take you to a new day. 

Let it speak from your mouth, there is so much to….. 

Ohhhh, let your dreams go, where the wind blows.

 

 You know where this dream would go 

Just let it Flow

 

 

Let the forest take you, it's no mistake to do.  

Let's take you to a new day.  

Let it speak from your mouth, there is so much to…..  

Ohhhh, let  your dreams go, where the wind blows. 

 

 

In Between the planets         12-6-2020 Bertien van Oppen

 

I listened to how the rain felt down. 

A  puddle on the roof was worn as a wet clothing gown. 

A thunder rolled over the clouds, in a sparkle of light. 

No one knows where the lightning will hide.

 

Something mysterieus hovered over our town. 

In the darkest part of the night it sank down. 

Nothing to lose I went to the stairs of the aircrafts door. 

I walked on an alley and reached the next floor.

 

Is this real, is it really you?  

 

I embraced your heart and I knew what to do. 

The other part of a soul, hanging on to you. 

Only real love can force me to be true. 

 

But you got more to offer and more to say. 

We sank on our knees and wanted to pray. 

Pray for our love in an endless way. 

And in your arms I will pray for the other day.

 

I embraced your heart and I knew what to do. 

The other part of a soul, hanging on to you. 

Only real love can force me to be true.

 

Up in the clouded air we flew. 

But I saw the brightest star in you. 

We reached in between the planets and far away. 

And I knew this is where we always will stay.

 

I embraced your heart and I knew what to do. 

The other part of a soul, hanging on to you. 

Only real love can force me to be true.

 

 

Little White House, Bertien van Oppen, 12 oktober 2019

 

Little white house down the road. 

Are we all in the same boat? 

All the lovely thoughts I got on your door. 

To capture all the dreams this is where we’re living for.

 

Some day, I know someday, all my dreams will find their way. 

Some day,  I know someday, this house is the perfect place to stay. 

The inside confusion is only an illusion. 

Cause my heart is holding the solution.

 

There will come a day that I hold your key.  

With every tiny little brick so lucky to be. 

A part of life purpose living in the flow. 

Even when they think that my chances are low.

 

Some day, I know someday, all my dreams will find their way. 

Some day,  I know someday, this house is the perfect place to stay. 

The inside confusion is only an illusion. 

Cause my heart is holding the solution. 

 

I want to stay under your roof today. 

I figured out a way. 

If these walls could talk I knew what they would say. 

Please go your way

 

Our days together will be soon. 

I’m walking through your door this afternoon. 

I will be so lucky to hold your key. 

I got this key, because I never gave up believing in me.

 

Some day, I know someday, all my dreams will find their way. 

Some day,  I know someday, this house is the perfect place to stay. 

The inside confusion is only an illusion. 

Cause my heart is holding the solution.

 

 

Angel of Sirius   30-3-2020 Bertien van Oppen

 

Oh do you know, where you go, where you go. 

Your shade will fade, but ‘i'll wait. 

Your footmarks on the roof, is the proof.

 

I'll meet you on the rooftop. 

In the middle of the night when I wake up. 

Even when the world is blind I can see, I can see. 

I knew this is the place to be.

 

Take my heart as a seat, it is no greed. 

Put it under your feet so it will lead, 

you to the arms of me.

 

So we can be as one, like it all began, like it all began. 

A journey from a long time ago, 

But I still know how far love will go.

 

I'll meet you on the rooftop. 

In the middle of the night when I wake up. 

Even when the world is blind I can see, I can see. 

I knew this is the place to be.

 

For the dreamer Only 3 november 2019 Bertien van Oppen



When the darkest clouds pass your window. 

The morning fogg leaves teardrops on the willow. 

I never knew a heartache could hold a widow. 

It feels likeI’m crawling against the flow.

 

How can I get in and stay forever in this place? 

This world somehow left without a trace. 

But what can I do when my heart is lost and lonely? 

In a world that’s for a dreamer only. 

For a dreamer only, for a dreamer only, for the dreamer only.

 

When I go to sleep. 

And never wake up would this world keep, 

Me from a disaster from the deep? 

Where I only can sit down and weep.

 

How can I get in and stay forever in this place? 

This world somehow left without a trace. 

But what can I do when my heart is lost and lonely? 

In a world that’s for a dreamer only. 

For a dreamer only, for a dreamer only, for the dreamer only.

 

Oh show me the way. 

To the present moment of today. 

Show me the way. 

At least teach me how to pray.

 

No sun can shine enough for a smile. 

I want to stay under my sheets for a while. 

Please wake me up when you find a file. 

Where it is written that we can hold each other for a while.

 

How can I get in and stay forever in this place? 

This world somehow left without a trace. 

But what can I do when my heart is lost and lonely? 

In a world that’s for a dreamer only. 

For a dreamer only, for a dreamer only, for the dreamer only.

 

 

The feelings we had before                          28-4-42020 Bertien van Oppen ( Lockdown song)

 

The feelings we had before. 

Hiding behind the door. 

Will this be born again, will it be born again?

 

When I walk on the street. 

The surface never meets my feet. 

It’s dark and it’s cold, the story kept untold. 

The windows stocked and the door locked. 

We didn't even know if the cradle even rocked.

 

The feelings we had before. 

Hiding behind the door. 

Will this be born again, will it be born again?

 

The empty hearted will remain. 

They even can’t feel the pain. 

They walk their tracks like their facts. 

There is no link between what they feel and what they think.  

 

Can their heart still be saved when their pad is already paved? 

The feelings we had before. 

Hiding behind the door. 

Will this be born again, will it be born again? 

 

A prison without bars. 

We never fought so many wars.

 

Only heavenly light can be our guide. 

So we don't have to live in fear and hide. 

For even a battle we can’t fight. 

Let there be our guide. 

No wings but still a flight.

 

The feelings we had before. 

Hiding behind the door. 

Will this be born again, will it be born again.

 

When somebody opens the door. 

The feelings we had before. 

Will this be born again, will it be born again?
