The Movers The Shakers and The Peacemakers

October 26, 2017

2017

With our eyes wide shut in the still of the night, we sit and hold the vision
When the fears burn wild we don’t run and hide, we see a world with no division
We see with one love, one heart, one drum beating to a song that is singing us home
We dance in white light, under the starlight, we are the sacred seeds of the sound of Om

We say Aho, Amen, Om Shanti Om
We are the movers and the shakers and the peacemakers

In your eyes we see our other side, you’re a perfectly clear reflection
There are no others, there is only one mother, she’s taking us in one direction
Love is our weapon, music our religion, peace is our power, peace is our mission
We don’t separate or dominate, we appreciate and celebrate

We say Aho, Amen, Om Shanti Om
We are the movers and the shakers and the peacemakers

We can go higher, higher, higher still
We can get louder, louder, louder yes we will

We feel the power in the presence, it’s the all, it’s the essence and in it we own this space
We don’t get lost in thought or drown in the drama, we’re the guardians of this place
We see with one love, one heart, one drum beating to a song that is singing us home
We dance in white light, under the moonlight, we are the sacred seeds of the sound of Om

We say Aho, Amen, Om Shanti Om
We are the movers and the shakers and the peacemakers

We can go higher, higher, higher still
We can get louder, louder, louder yes we will

We are the movers and the shakers and the peacemakers
We are the lovers and the leaders, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for

We say Aho, Amen, Om Shanti Om
We say Aho, Ashay, Om Shanti Om

​It’s a calling from the future, an echo of an ancient past
To all the peaceful warriors to hear this call at last
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky

We’re standing on the edge of the darkest days from which we can’t retreat
So rise up for the ones who came before and dig in both your feet
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky

Be humble, be hungry, be love

For those who dare to dream this dream and keep the love alive
Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t change the world with your smile
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky

Be humble, be hungry, be love
Be humble, be hungry, be love

Blame is not the game, the map is not the terrain
Hear the call and feel the earth and find your own way
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky

Be humble, be hungry, be love

It’s a calling from the future, an echo of an ancient past
To all the peaceful warriors to hear this call at last
Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky

Keep your head up and lift your heart to the sky

No mud no lotus haven’t you noticed
The patterns of the pain in your past
The things that broke you, they also awoke you
To the questions you needed to ask

The sleepless nights and the dizzying heights
And the dreams some of which came true
Tough breaks, heartaches, perfect mistakes
Created this version of you

Everything you go through grows you, exposes who you are

If it hurt it made you softer
If it was hard it fueled the hunger
If it touched you your heart took hold
If it was simple it made you wise
If it was sweet it made you smile
It weaved an indelible impression on your soul

Your feet they walked and your lips they talked
Your hands dug around for the proof
Every look, every book, picture in your mind that you took
Created this version of you

Everything you go through grows you, exposes

The roots of an endless summer, part time temporary lovers
And the swoon of the deep blue sky
As the time flew you planted and gathered your truth
As it passed before your eyes

The wound is where the light gets in
Revealing the masterpiece just beneath the skin
In the glow of your own light, your pedals open wide
You bloom right where you are

Everything you go through grows you, exposes who you are

Sometimes I cry for a lonely world that’s living in a great divide
Sometimes these tears make me want to wrap myself up and disappear
But I won’t be away too long because my sadness turns to gladness when I sing this song

If your hand was in mine wouldn’t it make you my sister
Make you my friend, make you my brother
If your hand was in mine wouldn’t it make everything better
Isn’t it amazing how every hand fits right in the other

Sometimes I fear when the jackals outside are the only voices I hear
But the call of the the love in my heart is stronger
And the feeling I want to reach out, won’t hold back any longer

If the world needed just one more lover, couldn’t it be me, couldn’t it be you
If your hand was in mine, wouldn’t it make you my sister
Make you my friend, make you my brother
If your hand was in mine wouldn’t it make everything better
Isn’t it amazing how every hand fits right in the other

If your hand in mine you would feel me inside, deep inside, deep inside
It would bring love and it would bring touch and it would bring sight to a world gone blind

If your hand was in mine you couldn’t judge and run from me
Point your finger and be done with me
Yank my chain pull the rug from under me
Hate me, punch me or hold a gun to me
Hurt me, desert me, resent me, forget me, laugh at me, attack me with apathy
You can only feel me, be real with me, dissolve the fear with me, rise on up to a higher energy
You can’t be above or below me when you sit down beside me, hold me and know me
Take my hand my sister, my brother, my friend, my lover, there are no others here

If the world needed just one more lover, couldn’t it be me, couldn’t it be you
If your hand was in mine, wouldn’t it make you my sister
Make you my friend, make you my brother
If your hand was in mine wouldn’t it make everything better
Isn’t it amazing how every hand fits right in the other

Every once in a lifetime someone comes along
They know you inside and out, they recognize your song
You strike a chord and they know that they are right where they belong
Every once in a lifetime, they sing along

When our song began your heart was beating right in time with mine
You are my harmony the rhythm of my what and my why
I never told you about the way you make me come alive
I never told you that the sweetest refrain is when I get lost in your eyes
When you hold me at night

I never wrote you a love song did I?
I never write you a love song, oh maybe it’s not true
I never wrote you a love song did I, because every single song, I sing for you

You radiate a light that shows me worlds I’ve never seen
You being you makes me want to be a better me
You know if music were DNA we’d be twirling all around
If I haven’t told you that never have I ever heard a sweeter sound
We make the sweetest sound

I never wrote you a love song did I?
I never write you a love song, oh maybe that’s not true
I never wrote you a love song did I, because every single song

I sing for you, I’ll never miss
I sing for you, every word is a kiss
Every note I put in the air is like my fingers through your hair
I sing for you and I’ll never stop from every valley and mountain top
There’s a raging burning love for you in every song

You are my every verse, my every rhyme, my signature and time
We make the perfect arrangements, our cadence is divine
This progression is a blessing, it’s in the key of you and me
Our love can be one long reprise

Find your fortress and burn it down
Tell all the men to take the night off and run into town
And raise one up for the liberated one

Stand up tall and watch it burn
All that you stood for and everything you learned
It makes a brilliant light in the summer sky just like the 4th of July

Something’s gotta burn, gotta burn I tell you
Something’s gotta burn inside
Something’s gotta burn, gotta burn I tell you
Something’s gotta burn if you wanna shine

Greet the dragon face to face
Feel the heat, reach out and touch the flame
And give a gentle smile because you know that it’s all up in your mind

Something’s gotta burn, gotta burn I tell you
Something’s gotta burn inside
Something’s gotta burn, gotta burn I tell you
Something’s gotta burn if you wanna shine

Something’s gotta burn, something’s gotta change
Fuel for the fire, fuel for the flame
You gotta feel it, gotta see it, gotta know it, gotta own it
If you’re ever gonna say goodbye

It’s in the highs, it’s in the lows
In the release and letting go
It’s in the darkest of the night when the brightest light shines

Stand up tall and watch it burn
All that you stood for and everything you learned
It makes a brilliant light in the Pennsylvania sky on a summer night

I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.
I love you.

Come on get ready for love, come on get ready for love
Come on get ready for love, love, love, love, love
Hurt people hurt people, healed people heal people

You can’t turn down the darkness can you?
But you can turn up the light inside
You can’t hurt away the hurt or hate away the hate but we can heal the divide

Come on get ready for love, come on get ready for love
Come on get ready for love, love, love, love, love
Hurt people hurt people, healed people heal people

How many generations passed this on?
How long have you felt this pain?
How many more hearts gotta ache before we decide to break these chains?

Come on get ready for love, come on get ready for love
Come on get ready for love, love, love, love, love
Hurt people hurt people, healed people heal people

Hurt people hurt people, helped people help people
Helped people heal people, healed people heal people

Hurt people hurt people, blessed people bless people
Blessed people heal people, healed people heal people

Hurt people hurt people, loved people love people
Loved people heal people, healed people heal people

I can see it in the old man’s eyes
I can see it in the young girl’s smile
I can see it coming through the pain coming right at us like a hurricane

Come on get ready for love, come on get ready for love
Come on get ready for love, love, love, love, love
Hurt people hurt people, healed people heal people

How many generations passed this on?
How long have we felt this pain?
How many more hearts gotta break before we decide to break this chain?

Come on get ready for love, come on get ready for love
Come on get ready for love, love, love, love, love

To all of my relations I look you in the eye
We are all related, it’s written in the sky
We can sing this simple song to everyone along the way
We can sing for the ones who’ve wronged
It heals the wounds from yesterday

May you be well, may you be happy, may you be peaceful, may you be loved

To all of my relations I bow to you
We are all related, a common thread runs right through
We can sing this simple song for the ones in pain
We sing for the suffering
May these words melt their pain away

May you be well, may you be happy, may you be peaceful, may you be loved

All of the beings and all of the creatures
They all hold the secret, they all are our teachers
As we are learning the lessons of love
Compassionate love

What if all creation sang this song to you
Could your heart become the home to place this love into
Then this simple song travels on everywhere you go
It becomes your beating heart
And the rhythm of your soul

May you be well, may you be happy, may you be peaceful, may you be loved

You want me to be afraid
You want me full of hate
You wanna lead me to a dark place
But I won’t go there. No I won’t go there.

If only you knew
If you could see my heart

You want us to divide
To take our seat and take a side
While liberties are being denied
But we won’t go there. No we won’t go there.

If only you knew
If you could see our heart

You would feel the beating of the just
Know the meaning of In God We Trust
Never underestimate the love within all of us

You want us to close our eyes
To watch the screens and stay inside
No we will fill the streets with peaceful smiles
Yes we will go there. We will go there.

If only you knew
If you could see our heart

I won’t lie I love to cry, I’ve got a raging river inside
My mind doesn’t know when to let my heart go and my soul won’t let me hide
I’m a dreamer, I’m kinda lazy but I call my crazy crazy
I’m a wreck, I’m a wreck, I’m a holy holy mess but I’m sacredly awake
I’m not here because it’s home, I’m not lost and I know I’m not alone
Because I see it in your eyes and I see it in the stars and I see it everywhere

That the same thing that pains me pains you
What if we are everything and we are nothing, are we are insignificant somethings
Are we hardly innocent purely magnificent pieces of the one thing
We rise and we fall and we run then we walk then we crawl
We might not have it all together but together we have it all

I see you in me and me in you 
The lines get crossed and blurry and I worry and I get so confused
Because we hurt from our hurt and we fear from our worst
We love from the love that we we won’t drink of, it’s an endless bottomless thirst
I have found that it matters that the past has passed
If you dare to let it go when you stare down the ghosts, will the ghosts stop staring back

That the same thing that pains me pains you
What if we are everything and we are nothing, are we are insignificant somethings
Are we hardly innocent purely magnificent pieces of the one thing
We rise and we fall and we run then we walk then we crawl
We might not have it all together but together we have it all

When you see me you can know me
I’m little bit of her and him and I’m a little bit of me and you
There are no strangers, we’re in danger of missing out on this truth

There are sages and there are queens, there is the seen and there is the unseen
Can you gaze in the mirror will it ever get clearer, can you wake up from this dream?
There are lies before your eyes, we are all wrapped up in a disguise
The truth it needs no proof, it goes by many names and many languages and many faiths
Stop seeking, it’s seeking you, be still and know that it’s true
If you don’t believe it there’s a man by the river with a bucket of water to sell to you

The same thing that pains me pains you
What if we are everything and we are nothing, are we are insignificant somethings
Are we hardly innocent purely magnificent pieces of the one thing
We rise and we fall and we run then we walk then we crawl
We might not have it all together but together we have it all

We breathe in melody
We see in harmony
We bathe in frequency

We dance to the drum of life’s magnificent song
We sing to the most high and we sing it as one
We are writing the next verse, the next beautiful verse of this one and only song

We dream in melody
We love in harmony
We believe in frequency

We dance to the drum of life’s magnificent song
We sing to the most high and we sing it as one
We are writing the next verse, the next beautiful verse of this one and only song

We shine in melody
We align in harmony
We rise in frequency

We dance to the drum of life’s magnificent song
We sing to the most high and we sing it as one
We are writing the next verse, the next beautiful verse of this one and only song

We are melody
We are harmony
We are frequency

We dance to the drum of life’s magnificent song
Our voice is the most high and we sing it as one
We are the next verse, the next beautiful verse of this one and only song

A Thousand Cups of Tea

2016

Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to beginning
Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to the first time

A thousand cups of tea but not like this one

A thousand suns will rise but not like this one
A thousand lullabies but not like this one

Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to beginning
Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to the first time

Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to the first time
With a brand new pair of eyes
So that we may finally see

A thousand fields of green
A thousand farewells grieved

A thousand hearts you’ll know but not like this one

Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to beginning
Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go back to the first time

I have given, I have given, I have given so much of me

I am the one I’ve been waiting for
I am the one I’ve been waiting for
I am the one I’ve been waiting for
And I’m hiding right here inside of my own skin

I am the friend I’ve been waiting for
I am the friend I’ve been waiting for
I am the friend I’ve been waiting for
And I’ve held many hands but never have I held my own

I am the truth, I am the love, I am the presence below and above
I am the council, I am the tribe
I built this house now I’m gonna live inside

I am the proof I’ve been waiting for
I am the proof I’ve been waiting for
I am the proof I’ve been waiting for
That God is good and lives inside of my soul

I am the hope, I am the love, I am the trust, I am enough
I am the friend, I am the change, I am the arrow, I am the aim
I am the council, I am the tribe
I built this house now I’m gonna live inside

Om, om

Om sweet om, caught by the rapture
Om sweet om, my heart is captured

Om, om

Om sweet om, out of the stillness
Om sweet om, my soul can feel this

Om, om

Om sweet om, out of the silence
Om sweet om, I’m filled with aliveness

Om, om

Om sweet om, gently and freely
Om sweet om, I feel you breathe me

Om

How can I say anything but thank you?
How can I say anything but grace?
Everything in front of me is heaven everywhere and every place
Every pleasure, every pain, every joy, and every heartache

How can I say anything but thank you?
How can I say anything but grace?
Everything in front of me is a miracle
Every line on every face, every handshake, every embrace
Every worry, every doubt, up and down, and every mistake

How can I say anything but thank you?
How can I say anything but grace?
Every road in front of me leads to home
Every breath every step, every turn I take
Every now and then take the time to appreciate

I say thank you, I say grace
I say thank you, I say grace
I say grace
I say grace

It’s Time

February 5, 2016

2016

Every day is reason to celebrate out loud
Every sunrise is a sacred invitation to bow down
Every single ray of the sun it shines just for you
How could it be anything but a miracle, tell me won’t you, tell me won’t you

Like a snowflake melting in your hand, the ticking of the tock and the grain of sand
Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you
Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you

You’re moving fast at twice the speed of here and now
You’re running from moment to moment, the present can’t chase you down
You’re living in the screens, yesterday’s pain and tomorrow’s dreams
You’re a multi-tasker, taking-for-granter, missing the message of the magic in between

Like a snowflake melting in your hand, the ticking of the tock and the grain of sand
Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you
Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you

Look it in the eye, take it by the hand
Put your feet back on the ground, let it do its dance
It’s a sacred romance
Every day is reason to celebrate out loud
Every sunrise is a sacred invitation to bow down
Every single ray of the sun it shines for you
How could it be anything but a miracle, tell me won’t you, tell me won’t youLive it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you

Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you
Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you
Live it like it’s right in front of, right in front of, right in front of you

It’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time
It’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time

It’s another day under the same sun, it’s another day to lean in and claim some
It’s another day to be bold, brave and unafraid
It’s another chance to change direction, move the arrow, a course correction
Be an instrument, be the change or move out of the way

So if your glass is half empty then fill it
If it’s overflowing then spill it
Over the mouths that thirst and the souls that hurt
Spill it spill it spill it

Because we need your heart, we need it open wide
We need your brilliantly beaming glowing and knowing goodness from inside
We need your beautiful smile and we need it right now
Because you’re the light of the world, the light of the world and it’s time you figured it out

It’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time

You’re the answer’s perfect timing and there ain’t no use in hiding
This blinding shining diamond you’ve been disguising
You’re the universe in ecstatic motion, you’re the elixir, the magic potion
For a world that cries for what’s behind your eyes

So if your glass is half empty then fill it
If it’s overflowing then spill it
Over the mouths that thirst and the souls that hurt
Spill it spill it spill it

Because we need your heart, we need it open wide
We need your brilliantly beaming glowing and knowing goodness from inside
We need your beautiful smile and we need it right now
Because you’re the light of the world, the light of the world and it’s time you figured it out

It’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time
It’s time, it’s time

It’s time to be true, to be the beautiful you, to let your soul smile through your eyes
Because your one little light can light ten thousand more and together we will, together we will

It’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time

There’s a celebration in the streets, brothers and sisters finally meet
All of these orphans under the same sun, same sky
There’s a glow on the horizon, Shiva calling, Shakti rising
And there are so many signs, so many signs, signs, signs, signs

And we need your heart, we need it open wide
We need your brilliantly beaming glowing and knowing goodness from inside
We need your beautiful smile, and we need it right now
Because you’re the light of the world, the light of the world and it’s time you figured it out

It’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time, it’s time

How long has it been since we were together last, how long has it been
How long has it been since we were together last, how long has it been
How long has it been, was it this life or the last, how long has it been
How long has it been, was it this life or the last, how long has it been

But were we ever, ever really apart

Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends
Your heart and mine can know no separation

I am so grateful to look into your eyes, I am so glad
I am so grateful to look into your eyes, I am so glad
I am so grateful we’ve come together again, I am so glad
I am so grateful we’ve come together again, I am so glad

It’s like we never, we never were really apart

Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends
Your heart and mine can know no separation, just celebration and jubilation

And our hearts they never need to be lonely or to bleed

Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine are the oldest of friends, your heart and mine
Your heart and mine

In this moment everything shows up
Everything presents itself just as it is
And when you slow down, let it all happen
Something fantastic, magic happens in you

When you breathe in it’s like we’re all listening
To an echoing of our own souls
And when you breathe out it’s just like a raincloud
Relief it comes pouring down on a thirsty world

Meditation is the medication to cure the illusion of a separation
Meditation is the medication to cure the illusion of a separation, a separation

To a mind that’s still becomes a cup that’s filled
With effervescence, ever-presence, and a heart that swells
And when you drink from this, it’s a never-ending peacefulness
Don’t have to believe in this, it’s a story that tells itself

When you breathe in, it’s like we’re all listening
To an echoing of our own souls
And when you breathe out it’s just like a raincloud
Relief it comes pouring down on a thirsty world

Meditation is the medication to cure the illusion of a separation
Meditation is the medication to cure the illusion of a separation

We are one when we are all together, we are one when we are all alone
We are one when we are all together, we are one when we are all alone

Have you ever been here? Have you ever stayed here?
Have you never left here for more than a glance?
Have you ever faced this? Have you ever tasted this?
There’s a relief in the sweetness, every moment is another chance

Just breathe in, it’s like we’re all listening
To an echoing of our own souls
And when you breathe out it’s just like a raincloud
Relief it comes pouring down on a thirsty world

Meditation is the medication to cure the illusion of a separation
Om namah shivaya, Om namah shivaya
We are one when we are all together, we are one when we are all alone

When no one is looking I swallow deserts and clouds
And I chew on mountains because I know they are sweet bones
When no one is looking I sip from the cool summer sky
I savor the blue of it and it colors my eyes

When no one is looking I want to kiss god
When no one is looking I want to kiss god
So I lift up my own hand to my mouth
I lift up my own hand to my mouth

When no one is looking I call forth the thunder and the rain
I lasso the sunshine and it warms the blood in my veins
When no one is looking I talk with the flowers and the trees
I tell them my secrets and they, they listen to me

When no one is looking I want to kiss god
When no one is looking I want to kiss god
So I lift up my own hand to my mouth
I lift up my own hand to my mouth

When no one is looking at me what is looking through me can see
And I feel everything, everything it feels me
When I’m all alone in my own sweet own
I hear the silence calling me home

When no one is looking I blow off the dust from the Milky Way
I polish off the stars and the dust on my fingers is my own
When no one is looking I paint smiles on faces with frowns
I swipe a little lift from a joyful child holding my hand
When no one is looking I breathe in with you and I feel sweet relief
And I hold the mystery closer than I hold my beliefs
I hold the mystery closer than I hold my beliefs
I hold the mystery closer than I hold my beliefs

Noohra noohra noohra
Noohra noohra noohra

Now is the time and this is the place
Here is a call to the human race
We are the ones, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for

Here in the dark, the darkness of night
We bring the love and we bring the light
We are the ones, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for

There’s the writing on the wall and a knocking on the door and we are home
There’s a call of the wild and a whisper in the wind and we just know

Noohra noohra noohra

There’s light in our eyes, it’s the same as the stars
Compassion is our action and fire in our heart
We are the ones, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for

We’re alive and wide awake and peace is what we make
We illuminate this world with every breath we take
We are the ones, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for

There’s the writing on the wall and a knocking on the door and we are home
There’s a call of the wild and a whisper in the wind
There’s a sacred song we gather around and sing
We are the ones

Noohra noohra noohra
Noohra noohra noohra
Noohra noohra noohra
Noohra noohra noohra

You are not your story, no, no, no; You are not your story, no, no, no
You are not your story, let it go; You are not your story, let it go

It’s a figment of your imagination, it’s fleeting and it’s ever changing
But you are not your story, no, no, no

Because you are light, because you are light, because you are light

You are not your body, no, no, no; You are not your body, no, no, no
You are not your body let it go; You are not your body, no, no, no

It was given for your every pleasure, it’s temporary, the greatest treasure
But you are not your body, no, no, no

Because you are light, because you are light, because you are light
Because you are light, because you are light, because you are light

And we radiate just like the oldest stars
We permeate the thickest walls and we shine right through it all

You are not the drop, you are the sea, you are a reflection back at me
You are everywhere and every place, you are the divine, you are the grace

Every single star is a sun
We are not the many, we are the one

Because we are light, because we are light, because we are light
Because we are light, because we are light, because we are light
Because we are light, because we are light, because we are light

You are not your story, let it go

If you knew me better, if you knew where I’d been
If you’d seen half of what these eyes have seen
If you heard the voice I hear keeping me up at night
Maybe you’d understand, maybe you’d recognize

That the face you see is the best I got
Sometimes it takes all of me to give a little piece of my heart
This isn’t an apology or a reason why
But if you knew me better you’d see I’m a lot like you on the inside

If you could taste the tears, feel the burn of the lies that have crossed my lips
Touch all the close calls that have slipped right through my fingertips
If you could have rode along with me on my boulevard of dreams
You’d have seen them flash before my eyes and die right in front of me

And the face you see is the best I got
Sometimes it takes all of me to give a little piece of my heart
This isn’t an apology or a reason why
But if you knew me better you’d see I’m a lot like you on the inside, on the inside

Maybe you wouldn’t write me off or turn your cheek
You wouldn’t question my motives or judge my beliefs
You wouldn’t drop your bombs on me or try to make me disappear
And if you knew me better, how much better off all of us would be

If you knew me better, if you knew me better

Well we wouldn’t need borders and we wouldn’t need wars
And we wouldn’t need guns and we wouldn’t need bombs no more

If you knew me better

If you knew me better, if you knew where I’ve been
If you’d seen half of what these eyes have seen
If you heard the voice I hear beating me up at night
Maybe you’d understand, maybe you’d recognize

That the face you see is the best I got
Sometimes it takes all of me to give a little piece of my heart
This isn’t an apology or a reason why
But if you knew me better you’d see I’m a lot like you on the inside
On the inside

When it’s up before the sun and you’re running all day and night
You’re spinning plates and you’re juggling dates and time needs to rewind
You can just breathe, breathe and take it slow

When your feet are in the fire, there’s too many moving parts
The sky is falling, tomorrow’s calling, and the past is breaking your heart
You can just breathe, breathe and let it go

I said now easy, easy is my philosophical view
I said now easy, easy does it is about the only way I do

When you’re pushing on the door and the door is pushing back
It’s overrated, complicated, and something just don’t feel right
You can just breathe, breathe and let it go

When the whirlwind of possibilities blowing you around like tumbleweed
And the square-peg round-hole situation just isn’t what you need
You can just breathe, breathe and let it be so

I said now easy, easy is my philosophical view
I said now easy, easy does it is about the only way I do, I do

When you flow like water and you float like the breeze
You make some space, you’ll taste some peace
The blurry lines will all become so clean
Step by step and one by one, you simplify and have some fun
And easy does it will become the only way to get things done

I said now easy, easy is my philosophical view
I said now easy, easy does it is about the only way I do, I do

When you lose yourself in the madness in the fray of this crazy place
You get palpitations, perspiration, there’s medicine not far away

It’s the same energy that moved the bullet, parted his skin and made his lights go dark
As the force that moved his hand to reach out, forgive and open up his heart
The same energy that pulls the teardrop from the corner of his blinded eyes
As the energy that drew the holy man, a humble witness to his side

It’s the same energy that raised the barrel, pulled the trigger, released the pin
As the energy that created the memory of all the faces he’d never see again
The same energy that took his sight, made his third eye come to life, see the children cry
And the force that ignited his vision and turned his compassion into action

It’s the same same
No good, no bad, just the same
Same energy
Our intention can make it change

It’s the same energy that makes the whiskey, that makes the glass, that makes the ice
That moves the foot to push down the pedal, twist the metal, snuff out the life
The same energy that vibrates to make sound of the sirens and the bells
As the hum of the silence in the cathedral as a thousand hearts they fell

It’s the same same
No good, no bad, just the same
Same energy
Our intention can make it change

It can be affected, directed, projected, course-corrected and perfected from within
It’s not by chance, there’s a choice, there’s a still small voice
A single thread that runs right through
Everything you do, Everything you do, Everything you do

You can end the world with the push of a button, start a whole new universe with the wink of an eye
You can make love, make peace, make war, make a difference, raise the vibe
The same energy that makes you move mountains, burn bridges or keep you in your bed
As the force that moves your spirit to start a revolution in your head

It’s the same energy that makes the flood and moves the blood and places the blame
Turns on the power, it raises the flower and raises the eyebrow, it raises the game

It’s the same same same
Same same same
Same same same
Our intention can make it change

By the glow of your phone you know you’re not alone
By the glow of your phone, you know
There’s a charge in the air, there’s life out there
There’s an energy you swear, it’s there by the glow of your phone, by the glow of your phone

By the light of the moon that seeps into your room
By the light of the moon in your room
It’s the same light reflected in my eyes
By the very very very same moon in my room, in your room

Have you ever felt the breeze blowing through the trees
And heard the whisper of your name coming through
Have you ever opened up your eyes in the middle of the night
And suddenly your heart just knew

Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you
Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you, thinking of you

There’s a song being played, a vibration being made
It’s a most familiar tune
And the words they come rolling off your tongue
You wonder is the whole world singing along with you, singing along with you

Have you ever felt the breeze blowing through the trees
And heard the whisper of your name coming through
Have you ever opened up your eyes in the middle of night
And suddenly your heart just knew

Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you
Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you
Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you

By the glow of the phone, the light of the moon, the sound of tune they’re thinking of you
By the glow of the phone, the light of the moon, the sound of tune they’re thinking of you
(The heart is getting smarter, the world is getting smaller, the love is getting stronger, don’t you know)

Have you ever felt the breeze blowing through the trees
And heard the whisper of your name coming through
Have you ever opened up your eyes in the middle of night
And suddenly your heart just knew

Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you
Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you
Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking of you

Somewhere, someone, someone is thinking of you

Fear is the cheapest room in this house, I’d like to see more love in your eyes
Fear is the coldest room with no doubt, I’d like to see more love in your eyes
Fear is the flame only a heart could blow out, I’d like to see more love in your eyes

Because in your eyes the love will show and the love expands everywhere you go
And it grows and grows as it goes out into the arms of a grateful world
It’s a grateful world

Greed is the oldest trick in the book, I’d to see more flowing through your hands
Greed she’s a thief, steal every second that you’ve got, I’d like to see more flowing through your hands
Greed she will bleed you, she will suffocate and tease you, I’d like to see more flowing through your hands

Because all you touch it turns to gold and when you release it turns into more
And it never ends it goes on and on into the loving arms of a grateful world
It’s a grateful world

Come with me, together we’ll go to see the friend, I’d like to see you taste some of her medicine
Come with me we’ll blow a prayer out on the wind, I’d like to see you taste some of her medicine
Come with me we’ll lay a kiss down on the land, I’d like to see you taste some of this medicine

I can’t be sure but somehow I know that every prayer is prayed in full
Because every heart touches every soul in the everlasting arms of a grateful world
It’s a grateful world

I’d like to see more love, I’d like to see more love, I’d like to see more love in your eyes
I’d like to see more flowing, I’d like to see more flowing, I’d like to see more flowing through your hands
I’d like to see you taste, I’d like to see you taste, I’d like to see you taste some of this medicine

Fear is the cheapest room in the house, I’d like to see more love in your eyes
Fear is the flame only the heart can blow out, I’d like to see more love in your eyes

2014

What’s the eye behind the I, I am
Who’s the me behind the eye through which I see
Am I the watcher or is there something else that’s wanting to be seen through me
I’ve accumulated all these things
Artifacts, possessions, names – they try to tell the tale of me
But I am holding on to thinking there’s a little bit more to the story

I know I’m not the name you say, the things I own, the roles I play
I know there’s something breathing me
If you take away my name, you take away these things
You’re left with only awesomeness
The essence that I came here with, the everything
The I am

Here I stand my convictions strong and clear
I admit to listening to these whispers in my ear
You might call me crazy but you know you do it too
You know that there’s a voice behind the voice in you

I know I’m not the name you say, the things I own, the characters I play
I know there’s something breathing me
If you take away my name, you take away these things
You’re left with only awesomeness
The essence that I came here with, the everything
The I am

I know I’m not the moon that my finger’s pointing to
And I know that I’m not separate from any one of you
It’s an elementary game in energy exchange
The raging river, life’s grand giver of everything
The I am…

Life’s expression, soul-bound connection, pure reflection of all that is divine
I am the muse, I am imbued with the golden hue of light
I am love, it’s what I’m of, I am above, I am below, this much I know
I am this moment, I am that moment, I am everywhen, no beginning, no end
It’s weaving in you, breathing in me, this ever-present, everything I am

I AM – YOU ARE – WE BE

It’s the bluest of the sea, the whisper through the trees
The serenade that drops you to your knees
It’s the sparkle of the smile, the honesty in the eye
The bravest bloom reaching for the winter sky
It’s the racing of your heart, the sage behind the smart
The home inside the house where you were born
It’s in the things we can’t explain, things perceived but never seen
Everywhere, everything in between
It’s taming the monsters under your bed
Fighting the wolves up in your head
It’s the strange things you do when you are led
It’s on the tip of your tongue, the song that’s longing to be sung
It’s relentless and it’s only just begun
And it’s calling out through you, using your heart to sing the truth
To put a little more, put a little more love in the world

If your heart is torn in two, what you give out returns to you
Put a little more, put a little more love in the world

Put a little more love in the world…

And there’s no place that it’s not and there’s no time that it stops
There’s a reason it takes your breath away
And the messages are clear, it’s the reason why we’re here
To put a little more, put a little more love in the world

If you are the only one to believe, then stand up and set it free
And put a little more, put a little more love in the world

If you’re standing brave and strong or just barely hanging on
Put a little more, put a little more love in the world

Put a little more love in the world…

It’s been a long day, it’ll be a longer night
It’s been a long day, it’ll be a longer night
And I, I just want to breathe

It’s been a broad stoke, a long list of one more thing
It’s been a broad stoke, a long list of one more thing
And I, I just want to breathe

When you do those things, when you do those things you do
Well you run the risk of leaving no time to breathe

It’s been a crazy, crazy amped up feel
It’s been a crazy, crazy amped up feel
And I, I just want to breathe

It’s been a long year, it’s been a long time
Since I sat in the trees and had a good cry
And I, I just want to breathe

When you do those things, when you do those things you do
Well you run the risk of leaving no time to breathe

It’s been a good run, rise to the top
It’s been a thousand miles since your last rest stop
Been a lot of putting offs, figure it out somehows
A lot of maybe whens, but never right now
And I, I just want to breathe

The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It’s full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing

But I, I love it when you read to me
And you, you can read me anything

The book of love has music in it
In fact that’s where music comes from
Some of it’s just transcendental
Some of it’s just really dumb

But I, I love it when you sing to me
And you, you can sing me anything

The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It’s full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we’re all too young to know

But I, I love it when you give me things
And you, you ought to give me wedding rings

You can find me in the silence I’ll be breathing
It’s the truest true and everything I believe in
Light dances before your eyes, a precious gift to be realized
It leaves you with an indescribable feeling

That I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here
I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here

As the air moves in and out of me I can feel it
It’s the Buddha, the mother Mary, and holy spirit
It’s every book I read, the single thread that gets me clear and out of my head
Ties my body to my soul and I’m always near it

And I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here
I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here

I have spent enough days just barely breathing
Shallow, hollow, empty it left me feeling
Disconnected on overdrive, stressed and tempted to dull the ride
Hints of joy but they were often fleeting

But I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here
I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here

It’s the guide, it’s the way, it’s the path through every fear
It’s a knife in the past, the instant now and here
It’s the grand entrance to the truth today
And it’s always just one breath away

As the air moves in and out of me I can feel it
It’s the Buddha, the mother Mary, and holy spirit
It’s every book I read, the single thread that gets me clear and out of my head
Ties my body to my soul and I’m always near it

And I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here
I’m awake, I’m alive, I am here…

If your heart had wings and your eyes were open
Your desperate breath let go of its hoping
And your best friend was there to hold your trembling hand

If you’re bruised and battered like nothing else mattered
The last words fell like the glass that shattered
Down the hall and the echo went on and on and on

There’s a grand old tree, queen of the forest
Lay it down at her roots, I swear she’s got it
You don’t have to carry this anymore

It’s a beautiful, beautiful day to let it go
It’s okay she’ll never tell a soul

Of all the trees, this one she’s been waiting
The winding path, deep green parading
They say your gift you’ll find it where you fall

Would you cross a mighty river to sit by her moonlight
If your greatest risk was your only insight
Would you drop your worries forever there in her arms

It’s a beautiful, beautiful day to let it go
It’s okay she’ll never tell a soul
In the gentle of her sway no one will ever know

It’s the bravest of us all who recognize the need to let it go
In her branches and her leaves, your troubles floating gently on the breeze

If your heart had wings and your eyes were open
Your desperate breath lets go of its hoping
And your best friend was there to hold your trembling hand

There’s a grand old tree, queen of the forest
Lay it down at her roots, I swear she’s got it
You don’t have to carry this anymore

It’s okay she’ll never tell a soul
In the gentle of her sway no one will ever know
It’s a beautiful, beautiful day to let it go…

This chance that you took, it means the world to me
This spark that you lit, it feels so warm to me
Have you ever wondered where we’d be if you never lit it

This place I made is not the same without you here
The birds and the trees, they’re calling out for you my dear
Have you ever wondered where we’d be if you didn’t listen

In the grand design in my eyes, I never saw it different, never saw it different
When the day arrives you can’t deny, you can only hope to remember

That the face that you see when you wake, it’s the face of everything
The breath that you take, it’s breathing everything
Have you ever wondered where we’d be if we didn’t breathe it, feel it

Take a chance and really believe it
So you stand up and own it and never find out what you were missing

In the grand design in my eyes, I never saw it different, never saw it different
When the day arrives you can’t deny, you can only hope to remember

When your eyes opened wide it stirred a deeper part of me
A new world came alive, a brand new everything

In the grand design in my eyes, I never saw it different, never saw it different
When the day arrives you can’t deny, you can only hope to remember

Dark night, jaw tight, teeth clenched, soul not right
Eyes wide, heart pounds, quick breaths are the only sound
Gut check, suspect, train wreck is up in view
This pain, this thing is gonna have a talking to you

Sleeping might be the perfect thing to do
But suddenly you’re covered with this 3am blue

This isn’t fair, this isn’t right
This can’t be happening to me tonight
Well it isn’t my friend, it’s happening for you

Front steps, empty nest, heavy sigh on your chest
Summer moon, late June, it’s high time we told the truth
Words come, worlds fall, tears drop and angels call
Lifetimes of memories are rushing rushing rushing at you

Running might be the proper thing to do
But heaviness is forming all around you

This isn’t fair and this isn’t right
This can’t be happening to me tonight
Well it isn’t my friend, it’s happening for you

Well your highest good is what it’s after
Lessons and blessings disguised as disasters
To wake you and shake you, break and reshape you
Into something else entirely brand new

Brakes slam, steel ram, traffic jam, broken plans
Loose lips, pink slips, short sales and doctor trips
Last dime, last in line, broken-hearted valentines
White lies, morning cries, MRIs and flatlines

Yes this is real and yes this is right
But no this isn’t happening to you tonight
No it isn’t my friend, it’s happening for you

I’ve bit my tongue into a thousand pieces by now
I convinced myself your heart can’t take what I’m not willing to let out
Because it’ll be filled with disappointment, you’ll have an air of discontent
I know, I know, I know it’ll never measure up to the fairy tale you dreamt

As I spare the words to you, what’s that saying to me?
I wanna tell you who I am, exactly who I am
Not who I think you want me to be
I wanna speak from my heart from the middle of my heart
Let the words flow right out of me

Because I missed the point with you and I missed the point with me
The ones who matter really don’t mind
And the ones who mind, they really don’t matter to me

I’ve bent my words into the craziest shapes I’ve ever seen
I’ve turned and churned myself through the low self-esteem machine
I’ve puffed myself up and I cut myself down
Rearranged my beautiful pieces to fit someone else’s imaginary plan

As I change the words to you, what’s that saying to me?
I wanna tell you who I am, exactly who I am
Not who I think you want me to be
I wanna show you who I am, everything I am
Not this postcard I made of me

Because I missed the point with you and I missed the point with me
The ones who matter really don’t mind
And the ones who mind, they really don’t matter to me

I missed the point entirely
When I took the words from your head that you never even said
And I made them my truth, I made my bed, and I sang it as my reverie

This is who I am right here and now, the realest real I can be
I’m gonna do my thing and be myself and set the both of us here free
When I show you anything less than my beautiful mess, I lose my authenticity

And I missed the point with you and I missed the point with me
The ones who matter really don’t mind
And the ones who mind, they really don’t matter to me

When the words fell off of your tongue
The damage was already done
When the war inside of you meets the war inside of me
The words are only a gun

When there’s two pair of eyes that are blind
The broken hearts entangled in their own lies
You get dividing lines, positions and sides
In the middle the truth silently hides

That we’re brothers and sisters and mystical whispers
Of some big and beautiful wind
We’re divinely connected, yet somehow misdirected
By these unending wars within

We’ll take a long hard look inside
There’s a lot less of ourselves than we ever hoped to find
See the blood that flows through you and the breath that’s breathing me
Is all from one infinite mind

And we’re brothers and sisters and mystical whispers
Of some big and beautiful wind
We’re divinely connected, held and protected
When we see each other within

What I see in your eyes is grace
And the reflection coming back means we’re of the same place
When the center of you sees the center of me
We take all of the suffering away from this place

When forgiveness fell from your heart
Sweet fragrance left its permanent mark
When the peace inside of you meets the peace inside of me
The war is over before it can start

Thin Little Veil

March 31, 2012

2012

If you let your guard down long enough
You might just like what lets itself on in
If you open the door just a crack or two
You’ll get a flash of what you’ve been missing

These days and days they’ve turned into years
And the years have built these walls
But that little old crack lets in a sea of light
And then there’s colors, there’s colors

So you let it shine, shine

And then the darkness, the one you’ve called your friend
May no longer be so welcoming
They say there’s no greater gift than feelings lost and found again
Because it’s your right, it’s your essence, it’s your rainbow, it’s your golden vine

So you let it shine, shine

When you reach up and you reach for the stars
And they’re farther than they’ve ever been
You raise your hand and you raise your heart
And you’ll finally be listening to that voice, to that little ol’ voice
The one that screams like a lion

Sayin’ let it shine, shine

When you lay down your head you want to sleep at night
But you’re wide-eyed and worrying heavy on the state of your life
Just let go, let go, let go, leave it by the side of the pillow
Because the looser the grip, the lighter the load

You’ve been playing this game waiting on your finest hour
But that need to win will drain you of power
Put down that number one, put down control
The looser the grip, the lighter the load

When the weight of the world has descended on you
They say be strong, hold on, your pride will carry through
I say the stronger your pride, the longer the road
And the looser the grip, the lighter the load

When your heart is heavy it’s from a mind that’s full
When your spirit is weak the world seems so cruel
But it all falls away when you let go, let go, let go

Well the looser the grip, the lighter the load
I said the deeper the love, the higher we’ll go
The less that you need, the faster it flows
And the looser the grip, the lighter the load

Did you know that some things can change without a whole lot of pain
Just take your love and pour it in and watch it grow
Did you know that good will prevail, the signs are everywhere
It’s all over the faces in strange little places and dancing in the air

Peace signs and laugh lines
Are what makes, the world go round and round and round
Children’s smiles and loving eyes
Are what makes the walls come tumbling down

I don’t have to convince you, I don’t have to change your mind
Just step outside and feel the breeze blowing back the time
Because there’s a love train a-comin’, yeah we’re on the very next stop
Just get on board and open your heart, there ain’t no goin’ back

Peace signs and laugh lines
Are what makes, the world go round and round and round
Children’s smiles and loving eyes
Are what makes the walls come tumbling down

Tumbling down, everything old Everything old, is new again

The doors to heaven are open whatever your heaven might be
Or maybe it’s always been right here and now just between you and me
This place is where magic can happen beyond what we ever believed
It’s like rolling hills of giant sunflowers as far as the eye can see

Peace signs and laugh lines
Are what makes, the world go round and round and round
Children’s smiles and loving eyes
Are what makes the walls come tumbling down

If only you could see
If only you could see what everybody else can see
About you child, it ain’t no lie

If only you believed
If only you believed when they said you could fly to the moon
Don’t need a magic carpet or a red balloon

If you were listening
If only you were listening, you would hear the bells that ring
The sweet sound of your melody

Then the world wouldn’t seem so incomplete
Because now you’re in with both your feet

If all the world proclaimed
If all the billboards lit up with your name
Then would you start noticing

If all your soldiers died
One by one surrendered to your good side
Finally some peace of mind in your battered mind

If all your angels cried tears of a raging river
Just wild enough for you to ride

Then the world wouldn’t seem so make believe
Because now you’re in with both your feet

You got one toe in the water, one foot on the dance floor
And she’s waiting for you, waiting for you
You can twirl around in colors and leave the black and white behind

If only

Life has a way of making you drop down to your knees
Breaks your dreams down to nothing more than what you think you need
Time has a way of picking up the pieces from the cracks in the floor
Of all those little dreams that had shattered, they find their way to your life once more

If you open up your eyes and just let it all shine
It’s amazing, it’s amazing, it’s amazing, it’s amazing, aint’ it

There was a time when all the love in the world was enough
The grasses were green and the flowers were seen as pure holiness
The lilies and the jonquils and the rice flower paper you can see right through
It reminds you of that thin little veil that floats between me and you

It’s amazing, it’s amazing, it’s amazing, it’s amazing, aint’ it

You were bathed in the light when you came to this life
You’ll be bathed in the light when you leave

Life has a way of making you drop down to your knees
But your cast of characters find their way into your story just when you need
To remind you and to bind you to the path that you already see
And that thin little veil disappears and melts into you and me

It’s amazing, it’s amazing, it’s amazing, it’s amazing, aint’ it

Your words can often fail to sell
The nuance of emotions you try to speak so well
Your actions are to speak louder than your words
But somehow all the doing, doing, doing just don’t take away the hurt

They won’t remember everything you did
They won’t remember everything you said
But their heart it won’t forget and they’ll always remember
How you made them feel

You know your smile can cut right through the thickest heart
It can’t take away a lousy day but it’s a heck of a good start
It’s not the cards that you send or the money that you lend or the standard response
It’s the sharing of the silences, the dropping of the differences, and forgiveness

How you made them feel, the unmistakable light in your eyes
How you made it real, everything a little larger than life
How you made them feel so strong
When their weakened little heart couldn’t go on

It’s the slowing down and listening to a heart that speaks from honesty
It’s part of the great emancipation, disassociation from the separate lives we lead
Because the essence of the question, isn’t it all about connection, the mark we leave
Because long after you’re gone, your feeling lives on and on and on and on and on

They won’t remember everything you did
They won’t remember everything you said
But their heart it won’t forget and they’ll always remember
How you made them feel

I don’t wanna talk about it, I don’t wanna cry about it
I don’t wanna worry anymore
I don’t wanna look down from a higher place
I don’t need to feel enlightened
I just wanna be right here face to face

I don’t wanna plead no more, get you to believe no more
Convince you, then put my hands in my pocket
‘Cause this beautiful world I’m waiting to see
I think I’m done trying to change you, this time I’m changing me

I don’t wanna think about it, I don’t wanna fight about it
I don’t wanna ponder anymore
I don’t wanna read about it, I don’t wanna meet about it
I don’t wanna ask someone else what they think
‘Cause silence is a dangerous thing
Yeah this bird is telling me it’s time to sing

I wanna walk like it, I wanna live like it, I wanna feel it in my bones
I wanna breathe it in, end my sufferin’, so maybe just one soul will see
That this beautiful world we’re trying to find
We’re only gonna get there when we change on the inside

On the inside…

If you wanna see the light you gotta be a light shining on the darkest day
If you wanna see the change you gotta be the change, just takes one to show the way
‘Cause there are hands to be held and stories to tell
And hearts that ache to be freed
Love to share from within, peace to begin
If not you and me then who, where, or when

On the inside…

You can take my heart, drag it on the ground
Ride my emotions because they go up and down
Test my resolve, crush it in the palm of your hand

You can scare up my ghosts and my devils inside
Say hello to my angels and scrape at my pride
And lull me down to the darkest, deepest corners

And it’s perfectly find with me because alone we all must eventually be
Alone is not without, alone is within, therein lies your beauty

Well alone is not a time, alone is not a place
Alone is where you’re witness to your loveliness and grace
Alone I found but alone I did not seek

And it’s perfectly find with me because alone we all must eventually be
Alone is not without, alone is within, therein lies your beauty
Well it’s perfectly fine with me

I will never place my star in another hand
Because no one else can make my light shine the way I can
But I won’t grow old being shy and wondering

And it’s perfectly find with me because alone we all must eventually be
Alone is not without, alone is within, therein lies your beauty

This is where empty comes to be alone, boundless golden plains, big blue sky
Radiant expanse in all her splendor, towering, protecting her dominion
In spite of all you’ve known, there is always something grander than you

This is where quiet comes to be known, dancing with stillness to an endless song
In this mighty wondrous wordless space, silence often comes here to hide his face
In spite of all you’ve known, you are part of something grander than you

Never are you alone, ‘cause as above so below

This is where everything is from, the mystery, the great unknown
This is where empty comes to be alone, this is where everything is home

Here we are darling and we sure didn’t get here slow
If we stand in the perfect light we look just like we did 50 years ago
We’re the same shoe size and the look in your eyes hasn’t gone away
I still got the suit, you still have the dress, maybe we could step on back to that day

One Mississippi, two Mississippi, counting all the years go by
We passed by the place where half the memories have erased
Everything left now is a feeling inside

Trouble was at the back door but Lord we never let him in
You took my hand, jumped into the deepest waters and together we learned to swim
Everybody wants to know the secret to a lifetime of love
Take care of yourself, learn to forgive, and never try to figure out what they’re thinking of

One Mississippi, two Mississippi, counting all the years go by
Love’s a wild pony and boy she loves to run
So just hold on for the ride

Yeah she swings you up and she spins you around
And you never know where you’ll land
So just hold on and let that pony ride

Here we are darling and we sure didn’t get here slow
If we stand in the perfect light we look just like we did 50 years ago

Adopted from Kris Delmhorst, album Strange Conversation

We’ve come to the place where everything is music
Everything is music, everything is music
Well we’ve come to the place where everything is music
Everything is music, let it play

Why do you stay in jail when the door is wide open
The door is wide open, the door is wide open
Tell me why do you stay in jail when the door is wide open
Let the beauty that you love be what you do

Stop talking now, open up the window
The one right there in the middle of your heart
Let go your hands, sit down in the circle
You know you got no need to keep yourself apart

The day you wake up sad and empty, don’t go back to sleep
Don’t go back to sleep, don’t go back to sleep
The day you wake up sad and empty, don’t go back to sleep
Because there’s a million ways to kneel and kiss the ground

Don’t worry now about saving all these songs
There’s so many more just waiting to be found
If all these instruments should disappear
We’d still hear something coming up from way down in the ground

We’ve come to the place where everything is music
Everything is music, everything is music
Well we’ve come to the place where everything is music
Everything is music, let it play

Periphery

September 19, 2008

2008

The sun is overhead standing tall
I should have left at dawn, now half the day is gone
I got my suitcase loaded for all kinds of weather
I tried a shortcut out of town and now our cars are stuck together
But I can’t wait to find out if all the stories are true
About the loneliness and the misery of truck stop food

I got a map in my lap and a plan in my head and my knees on the steering wheel
I got hope in my heart for a brand new start and I kinda like the way it feels
I got Nashville tonight and Memphis in sight and Johnson City Tennessee
I got a map in my lap and a plan in my head and my knees on the steering wheel

The road will show you everything you ever wanted to find
From the giant ball of twine and the little old town stuck back in time
And they seem so quiet but you know that’s a lie
There’s always an underbelly, a darker side
I’m so thankful that I’m just a stranger passing through
And it feels so good to be out here on the move

I got a map in my lap and a plan in my head and my knees on the steering wheel
I got hope in my heart for a brand new start and I kinda like the way it feels
I got Nashville tonight and Memphis in sight and Johnson City Tennessee
I got a map in my lap and a plan in my head and my knees on the steering wheel

And my headlights only show me just what I need to see
They don’t let me get to far ahead of myself because I’m right where I need to be
Well the days blend one into another
And the Memphis nights so long it makes you really miss your lover
All these broken down structures that used to be a home
Where once there stood a family now all overgrown
Makes me wonder why the hell they ended up this way
Maybe they hit the road and never came back this way

I got a map in my lap and a plan in my head and my knees on the steering wheel
I got hope in my heart for a brand new start and I kinda like the way it feels
I got Nashville tonight and Memphis in sight and Johnson City Tennessee
I got a map in my lap and a plan in my head and my knees on the steering wheel

She’s crying in her soup, it’s plain tomato made by you
She’s watching your hands as you’re constantly creating
The things she needs from the walls that breathe to the dishes in the sink
That will be washed by you

She can’t understand how you can sit there and you smile
With the three-ring circus that you call your life
Your Daddy he picked up and drifted from your life
Before you had a chance to choose
And you lost your front tooth fighting for somebody else
Because you can’t stand to see anybody lose

And she asks you how do you do it, you say what have you got to lose
You don’t get another time, you don’t get another place
Get it right in your mind and the rest of you will follow behind

She got a heart that’s harder than a stone
Made a little bit softer from the garden of hope that you have grown
She’s looking away because she knows that if she catches your eye
You’re gonna lift her up and brush her off and make her feel like the princess bride

And she asks you why you do it, so what do you got to lose
You don’t get another time, you don’t get another place
Get it right in your mind and the rest of you will follow behind

She’s crying in the bathroom she calls it her Saturday night blues
Her hair’s been dry for hours and she’s just staring down at her shoes
And you’re waiting at the door just like you’ve been waiting all this time
Waiting, waiting for her to come down into the garden of hope with you

My poor aching heart just broke in two
You rushed in to make your big rescue
Just hold me, don’t console me, just hold me I’ll be fine

Balancing on rope that’s very thin
Barely missed a step in the wrong direction
Just hold me, don’t show me, just hold me I’ll find it

All that you have given to me, honestly I’ll never need
You want me to be strong, the strength of a thousand lies there in your arms

We can make the best of a Sunday afternoon
We can sit for hours just me and you
Just hold me, and know me, just know me, that’s all

The best days are not planned, spontaneous and hand in hand
The human touch felt and seen surely beats the TV screen
Real smiles they sneak up, her cheeks move to the sensing of my words
And the tiny little miracles captured on the lines on her face

You can build your life on what tomorrow brings
And you complicate the simplest things
You can hold your eyes fixed on the prize
And never see what’s in the periphery

Hand me downs and roll your own, yard sales at the older homes
We got a table for a quarter and had ourselves a million dollar night
They say that true love will never break your heart, it’s fully invested right from the start
It never shies away or looks for something better

You can build your life on what tomorrow brings
And you complicate the simplest things
You can hold your eyes fixed on the prize
And never see what’s in the periphery

Right there between the lines and the cracks in the floor and up on the dusty shelf
Is a photo and in the background is a little girl standing all by herself
The best days are not planned, careless tracking, slipping, ticking of the time
Ending with the most beautiful sunset ever seen

You can build your life on what tomorrow brings
And you complicate the simplest things
You can hold your eyes fixed on the prize
And never see what’s in the periphery

This morning I believed every word I said
This morning it meant something different to me, something very special instead
In the morning it ain’t easy to believe in the things you told yourself the night before
It doesn’t get you any more of what you don’t already have
So you gotta go out and get some more

Sunrise, sunsets, in between you get what you get
I had a little fuel and I lit a little fire
And it turned into a flame and it blew up to a big desire

Gotta get up, get out, and do it again just like the last one
Same stuff, different day, same people looking down at ya from the same old places
Everything’s getting old, just a little worn out, some days you just need a new scene
How do you taste your dreams and swallow your fears and make it all everlasting

Sunrise, sunsets, in between you get what you get
I had a little fuel and I lit a little fire
And it turned into a flame and it blew up to a big desire

Does your flame burn, does your heart sing, every day that you wake again
Are you true to what’s pulling you down the road that’s bound to end
Take it from me now, don’t drag your feet down

Only fools rush in, only love never ends to the hearts open wide, only you can decide
Surely time don’t wait as these years go by, do you raise our glass and celebrate
For the days yet to arrive, you take a long hard look at your life
Did you live it right child or was it a lie only you can decide

Sunrise, sunsets, in between you get what you get
I had a little fuel and I lit a little fire
And it turned into a flame and it blew up to a big desire

The lines near my eyes, they were made in my youth
I was still skeptical, always needing proof
But the older I got I started to see
Things don’t always reveal exactly what you need

Because your life is a book just like lines on a page and you wear it on your face
What a beautiful story a million words could never tell
We all wear it well

The pattern around my mouth is from the times I didn’t speak
I was told to listen and how it served me
All the times I wanted to say something I knew was right
But I held it in and I saved the day ‘cause I kept my mouth shut tight

Because your life is a book just like lines on a page and you wear it on your face
What a beautiful story a million words could never tell
We all wear it well

My darling won’t you hold my face in your hands
Trace your fingers through the pages I am
Tell me my story and promise that it’s true
And I’ll listen and smile with you

The scar on my chin is from the days of living free
Kids being kids left a mark on me
My little boy runs his finger over it real slow
The way he looks at me I can see he knows

Because your life is a book just like lines on a page and you wear it on your face
What a beautiful story a million words could never tell
We all wear it well

Fireflies flicker across the summer sky, stars casting a reflection in your eyes
A constellation in familiar formation, making a map to your heart

I have always been taken in by your eyes, like your story waiting slowly to unwind
Under the blanket of that warm summer moonlight, I’d spend all night trying

I am being pulled into your arms, I am helpless without weight
Moon draws water from the sea, just like the way you pull into me

I live half of my life looking for something I might never find
I am being pushed and being pulled all at the same damn time
I saw your face and the way you held yourself with so much grace
All I could say was my oh my

I am being pulled into your arms, I am helpless without weight
Moon draws water from the sea, just like the way you pull into me

Fireflies flicker across the summer sky, stars casting a reflection in your eyes
A constellation in familiar formation, making a map to your heart

I have always been taken in by your eyes, like your story waiting slowly to unwind
Under the blanket of that warm summer moonlight, I’d spend all night trying

I am being pulled into your arms, I am helpless without weight
Moon draws water from the sea, just like the way you pull into me

I live half of my life looking for something I might never find
I am being pushed and being pulled all at the same damn time
I saw your face and the way you held yourself with so much grace
All I could say was my oh my

I am being pulled into your arms, I am helpless without weight
Moon draws water from the sea, just like the way you pull into me

The sheets are outside hanging on the line
The warm spring sunshine will do them just fine
Breezes are blowing in from the south today
It’s only going to get better they say
Better they say

There’s a sense in me, changes that come with the times
Will be the greatest companion I think I ever will find

Nowhere is it written in stone
That path of least resistance leads you to home
This day goes down in time as the day I made up my mind
From the deep dark depths I will know come the strongest roots I will grow

You hardly even notice the things that take care of themselves
The arduous task of realigning the past is the dust that you brush from your head

Nowhere is it written in stone
That path of least resistance leads you to home
This day goes down in time as the day I made up my mind
From the deep dark depths I will know come the strongest roots I will grow
Come the strongest roots I will grow

The breezes are blowing in from the south today
It’s only going to get better they say
Better they say

Her name was Ruby she wore diamonds
Her eyes were crying all the time
In her turmoil someone said, hey girl
It’s not the route that you take, it’s the hearts that you break along the way

Put your heart on your sleeve
Because jealousy will control you
Will control you

From where he’s standing she could see this was ending
The facts won’t change it no matter how hard he tries
But it’s in the leaving, give you something to believe in
The way that you walk away will make you feel so alive and free

Put your heart on your sleeve
Because jealousy will control you
Will control you

And the rain won’t ever leave you standing dry
When you find your love don’t let your heart be shy
When you find your love don’t let your heart be shy

Her name was Ruby she wore diamonds
Her eyes were crying all the time

Her name was Ruby she wore diamonds
Her eyes were crying all the time
In her turmoil someone said, hey girl
It’s not the route that you take, it’s the hearts that you break along the way

Put your heart on your sleeve
Because jealousy will control you
Will control you

From where he’s standing she could see this was ending
The facts won’t change it no matter how hard he tries
But it’s in the leaving, give you something to believe in
The way that you walk away will make you feel so alive and free

Put your heart on your sleeve
Because jealousy will control you
Will control you

And the rain won’t ever leave you standing dry
When you find your love don’t let your heart be shy
When you find your love don’t let your heart be shy

Her name was Ruby she wore diamonds
Her eyes were crying all the time

This hasn’t been the greatest week
Perhaps your longest losing streak
Everything that could go your way
Went somewhere else instead

But it all happens for a reason you see
They just haven’t gotten around to telling you what that reason might be
So shake it off, dry your eyes, pick yourself up, leave it all behind you
Because it’s always gonna rain…

I’m telling you there’s gonna be sunshine and blue skies again

You should have never answered the phone
You should have left it all well enough alone
You can’t change what’s already done
You know it’s hard to pretend that we’re having fun

But it all happens for a reason you see
They just haven’t gotten around to telling you what that reason might be
So shake it off, dry your eyes, pick yourself up, leave it all behind you
Because it’s always gonna rain…

I’m telling you there’s gonna be sunshine and blue skies again

Pour It On

December 20, 2006

2006

When I’m drowning in the details, when I’m picking up the pace
When I’m holding on too long, to things I can’t replace
When I’m missing the point, running off the rails
When I’ve reached the bitter end, and the wind has left my sails

You breathe, the life back into me
Because the first thing I see, everyday is your lovely face
I am always amazed by you

Up and down this rocky road, it’s the only one I know
When I look at you to see, the better side of me
When I refuse to believe, can’t see the forest through the trees
When I’m running out of room, out of possibilities

You breathe, the life back into me
Because the first thing I see, everyday is your lovely face
I am always amazed by you

You, and that smile, could hold me captivated here all night
I, I’m your hostage, at your beckon call, at your feet

And you, you’re my gatekeeper, you’re my dream catcher, my last resort

I’ve seen, all I have to see, now my eyes can rest, gently on you
Relax, and take the moment in, take me in your heart, take me

And you, you’re my gatekeeper, you’re my dream catcher, my last resort
All pale, in comparison, in retrospect, I had no choice

How fast, I fell, so silently
How dead, they said, romance can be
And somewhere, somehow, this totally freaks me out
How you can look inside of me, and see the things I’ve tried to hide away for years

You, and that smile, could hold me captivated here all night

Have you ever asked yourself, have you really sat down and asked yourself
What is it that makes my head and my heart collide
What am I gonna do when it comes down to choosing sides

Have you ever asked yourself, have you really sat down and asked yourself
What is it that makes my soul catch fire
What is it that I really believe inside

Have you ever really listened, to the little voice inside your head?
When it really comes down to it, you shouldn’t have to think about it
When it really comes down to it, go with your heart
It’s easy to see where you’re going when you follow the love

Have you ever asked yourself, have you ever just sat down and wept
What is it that makes my plans and my dreams collide
What am I gonna do when it comes down to choosing sides

Have you ever really listened, to the little voice inside your head?
When it really comes down to it, you shouldn’t have to think about it
When it really comes down to it, go with your heart
It’s easy to see where you’re going when you follow the love

Don’t change your mind…

I want you to notice, I want you to see
Oh how it hurts when you look through me
I have no value, I owe everyone
For the image I am, for what I’ve become

I want to be pretty, so pretty for you
I want to be pretty, like the deepest blue
I want to be pretty, in the prettiest way
We’ll all be a pretty, pile of bones some day

I want you to light up wherever I come
I want you to drink me up like the sun
I have no value inside of me
I leave it to you to put a price tag on me

I want to be pretty, so pretty for you
I want to be pretty, like the deepest blue
I want to be pretty, in the prettiest way
We’ll all be a pretty, pile of bones some day

If pretty little blue birds fly…beyond the rainbow why oh why…

I want to be pretty, so pretty for you
I want to be pretty, like the deepest blue
I want to be pretty, in the prettiest way
We’ll all be a pretty, pile of bones some day

I woke up on the sunny side of the day
A hummingbird came to my window and he looked my way
He said, look at the big blue sky
It’s gonna be a beautiful day, you just can’t deny

Hey, hey what’s that sound
It’s gravity trying to hold you down
You get out of bed and you do it again
Gravity can’t hold you down

I said coming from a hummingbird that’s nice
You’re all of 3 grams, you fit in my hand, that’s some solid advice
I’ve got big problems, I’ve found
He said, your only problem is you’re looking down

Hey, hey what’s that sound
It’s gravity trying to hold you down
My back’s hunched over with the weight on my shoulder
Gravity’s trying to hold me down

Hummingbirds don’t really hum
But their heart beats faster than mine, 25 to 1
And his short little lifetime is burning up fast
I don’t suppose he spends much time living in the past

Hey, hey what’s that sound
It’s gravity trying to hold me down
I’m flapping my wings just as fast as I can
Gravity can’t hold me down

Welcome to the sunny side of the day
Where we see things in a most unusual way
If you’re feeling up, don’t look down
If you see that hummingbird hovering around

Hey, hey what’s that sound
It’s gravity trying to hold me down
I’m flapping my wings just as fast as I can
Gravity can’t hold me down…

I’m sure you can make your own way in this world
I’m sure you can find your own piece of mind
I know you will wander and I know you will roam
Please just remember you can always come home

Before you get too far, always look back
Because the pain that you’re running from, well I’ve already had
I know just how you feel, I know where you’ve been
I know why you keep on coming back again
Because you try so hard

Smile real big and open your arms to me
The things that will happen you won’t believe
Smile real big open your arms to me
The things you can do when you’re together with me

Of all of life’s promises given to you
This one I hope that you’ll listen to
The twists and the turns, the decisions you make
When it all gets too heavy I’ll carry the weight
Yes I will

Smile real big and open your arms to me
The things that will happen you won’t believe
Smile real big open your arms to me
The things you can do when you’re together with me

Rise up and fall with me…

I’m sure you can make your own way in this world
I’m sure you can find your own piece of mind
I know you will wander and I know you will roam
Please just remember you can always come home

You’ve got these great expectations they’ve created for you
Don’t let them haunt you if they never come true
I hope it don’t go to your head, if they do

There’s an old saying and I hope you’ll recall
The bigger they are, the harder they fall
Don’t you forget to stay small

Stay small, don’t get caught up in it all, stay small…

May hope hold your head up like a pillow
May faith be firmly planted under your feet, under your feet

So, there you are standing in the middle of it all
You’ve got these great big ideas, 10 feet tall
It’s alright to think big, but stay small

Stay small, don’t get caught up in it all, stay small…

May hope hold your head up like a pillow
May faith be firmly planted under your feet, under your feet

The bigger they are, the harder they fall
It’s good to think big, but you gotta stay small…

Stay small, don’t get caught up in it all, stay small…

When I look your way, you will always stare
Back into my eyes as if you’ve always been there
Like the smile of a child
Who don’t know any better

If I’d only ask, you would always reveal
Anything I wanted to know about the way you feel
Like the smile of a child
Who don’t know any better

Because the smile of a child has a mind of its own
The child hasn’t seen enough to be ruined by the world
You love me, baby you love me
As if you didn’t know any better

If I’m the first to go will you carry on my name
You’ll hope to see me again, your hoping will never end
Like the smile of a child
Who don’t know any better

I hope you always look on the brighter side
I hope your days go slowly lingering by
And I hope you take a little less time
On those things that took me years to decide

I hope you’re always first to apologize
When you do, you look them straight in the eyes
Because you can change the world in your own little way
You can right what’s wrong no matter what they say

And may you always be where the sun’s gonna shine on you

Always stand up for what you believe
The stronger your actions, the louder you speak
The farther you run child, from your fears
You’ll spend the rest of your days turning back those years

May you always be where the sun’s gonna shine on you…
Gonna shine on you…
May you always be…

I hope you see the stars most every night
And never doubt the magic of the moonlight
And the mysteries no one can see
I hope it doesn’t mean that you don’t believe

Warm summer breezes blowing through the trees into my window
Her body fast asleep, her long flowing hair on the pillow

The night rushes on with the speed of a train
Our hearts beating slowly, our souls feel the same
Bodies close together in the shape of a spoon
But the daylight’s impatient and the morning comes along too soon

Sweet little dreamer, where will you go now I am with you
To kingdoms far away, you can go anywhere that you want to

The night rushes on with the speed of a train
Our hearts beating slowly, our souls feel the same
They say dreams come alive under the light of the moon
But the daylight’s impatient and the morning comes along too soon

Sweet little dreamer, where will you go now I am with you
To kingdoms far away, you can go anywhere that you want to

The night rushes on with the speed of a train
Our hearts beating slowly, our souls feel the same
They say dreams come alive under the light of the moon
But the daylight’s impatient and the morning comes along too soon

Tonight this air’s so heavy it kind of hangs on you
So heavy in fact that the stars don’t quite make it through
The kind of night only two people so captivated with one another could appreciate
The wine is all gone, there’s traces of dawn, I guess it’s getting late

In the morning when I wake, will I find you there
In the sadness of this world, will you laugh with me girl
Laugh with brazen disregard

Your eyes they float there like the turquoise sea
I just sit back cross my legs and let your eyes fall all over me
I might just let you carry me away
I don’t know if I could ever say no to someone who looks at me that way

In the morning when I wake will I find you there
In the sadness of this world, will you smile at me girl
With those loving eyes

As I lie here in the stillness of the night
I can’t help but think how I’ve stumbled onto something so perfectly right
I guess all the planets have lined up or something, it must be written in the stars
All these years that I’ve been wondering just where you are

In the morning when I wake will I find you there
In the darkness of this world will you brighten my day
Shining so bright it blinds my way

our phone call was right on time
Just when I needed to be reminded
Oh no, I didn’t mind at all
In fact I was kind of thankful for your phone call

Because it’s a race out there
It’s a race in here
You don’t win or lose
You’re just wearing out your shoes

Your phone call woke me up
From one of the deepest sleeps I ever had
Oh no, I didn’t mind at all
In fact I was kind of kind of thankful for your phone call

Because it’s a race out there
It’s a race in here
You don’t win or lose
You’re just wearing out your shoes

It’s the words I never said
It’s the choice I never made
It’s the song I never sang
Until the phone rang

Your phone call was right on time
Just when I needed to be reminded
Oh no, I didn’t mind at all
In fact I was kind of thankful for your phone call

It’s the simplest things that mean the most to me
It’s the timing of the phrase and the buzzing of the bee
It’s the golden opportunity in people I meet
It’s the shiny in your hair and the rosy on your cheek

It’s the road you never took that presents itself again
It’s the left of center, the lifelong friend
It’s the way you never knew until you needed to know
Spontaneous combustion, going with the flow

It’s the ruby, ruby red kiss
It’s the times you know you’re gonna miss

It’s the cornfields growing up out of control
It’s the cup you drink from that’s always been full
It’s the first of the day when the songbird sings
Animation added to inanimate things

It’s the foolish things you’ve done that come back on you
In a strange little package from who knows who
It’s the elevators path to the 42nd floor
The way you look down and see the things you’ve never seen before

It’s the ruby, ruby red kiss
It’s the times you know you’re gonna miss…

Won’t you sing us all your songs, sing us all the songs
Sing us all the songs that you know
Won’t you sing us all your songs, sing us all your songs
Sing us all your songs before you go
Don’t die with your music, your sweet sweet music
Don’t die with your music in you

You gotta leave it all behind, leave it all behind
Leave it all behind for the others coming along
You gotta leave it all behind, leave it all behind
Because we want to hear your songs
Don’t die with your music, your sweet sweet music
Don’t die with your music in you

Tell us what you know, tell us what you’ve seen
Tell us how it is or how it used to be
Tell us something good, tell us something good
Tell us something good because that’s just what we need
Don’t die with your music, your sweet sweet music
Don’t die with your music in you

We’re gonna sing along, and we’re gonna tap our toes
Our hearts will be dancing just like you never know
If you think you got it going on then let it out
If you think you got it going on then pour it out

Pour it on and let it out, pour it on and let it out
Pour it on, let it out, jump up and down and scream and shout
Pour it on and let it out, pour it on and let it out
You’re gonna feel much better, pour it on let it out
Don’t die with your music, your sweet sweet music
Don’t die with your music in you

This little light of mine, this little light of mine
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, this little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
Don’t die with your music, your sweet sweet music
Don’t die with your music in you
