BLESS THE WATER

Bless the water as it flows into the sea of  life
Bless the water as it flows into the ocean
Bless the water as it flows and flows
Love as it grows and grows
May it be so forever, and for always

Bless the water as it makes its way to every sea
Bless the water as it's smoothing rocks 
And greening trees
Bless the water as it cleanses wounds
Quenches thirst, and follows moons
Peace can never come too soon, for waterways
     And I know I would never get this far
     Without hope and dreams
     Without knowing that we are
     Meant to be... much freer, healing beings
     And I see... One water, One earth, One humanity

Bless the water as it's coming down from cloudy skies
Bless the water as it's coming down from human eyes
Bless the water as it's coursing through
Rivers, streams, creeks to oceans blue
Coursing through me and you
All our days
     And I know we would never get this far
     Without hope and dreams
     Without knowing that we are
     Meant to be... much freer, healing beings
     And I see... One water, One earth, One humanity

 

 

 

PEARL
I have always been a dreamer
Dreaming how life can be here
Believing that fairytales come true.
But life has lessons to be learned
You may get hurt, you may get burned
Pearls of wisdom thusly earned.

Layer upon layer has gone down
Layer upon layer wraps around
Layer upon layer
Pain and beauty are bound

Sometimes you win,  sometimes you lose
Think you know...  know you’re confused
All life’s lessons to be used.
The storms will come, the sun will shine
The winds may change the hands of time…
And reveal…

Layer upon layer has gone down
Layer upon layer wraps around
Layer upon layer
Pain and beauty are bound

Sometimes you’ll run… sometimes you’ll fight
Open up or shut down tight.
What looks like wrong often turns out right.
You may stay or need to go,
Get irritated or let it flow,
From grains of sand, a gem can grow.

Layer upon layer has gone down
Layer upon layer wraps around
Layer upon layer
Pain and beauty are bound

 


THE  PHOENIX

You are a gift… you’re a treasure
You’re an angel in disguise
You were born to burn brightly
And see rightly into this heart of mine

You are a jewel… You shine
Shedding light into my soul.
The veil is wearing thin
And I can’t wait for the rapture to begin.

   You are love… You are free
   You are how we’d like to be
   I’m burning on the pyre…
   Of your fire.
          Consume… me.  Consume… me.  Consume… me
          And free… the Phoenix

You are a present from heaven
An answer to our prayers
You were born to lead others
And show us there’s a way from here to there.

   Show me free… Show me love
   Show me what I’m dreaming of
   I’m burning on the pyre
   Of your fire.
          Consume… me.  Consume… me.  Consume… me
          And free… the Phoenix



THOUGHT FORM
Hello, hello… Don’t be afraid
Hello, hello… Much more can be said
If you look into my eyes... you might just be surprised
What you’ll find there,  it’s yourself
If you dare to look deeply.
Open your heart...  Open your mind...
There’s a kind of confusion... we’re living illusion
Reality is what you believe it to believe in love
Believe in peace
In goodness and kindness… Sweet release
From the grip of the madness, causing such sadness
And realize,  we hold the key to our freedom
Freedom from fear...  Freedom from pain
And freedom to steer our lives
Out of the tragic,  and into the magic
To know that you know this…

You must act as though this is…
    Only a thought form away
    Only a thought form away

    Believe in what our love can do
    Believe in our dreams coming true
    All things move… Life is change…
    Our thoughts can rearrange
    Only beginning to know

    To know all really is one
    All part of this grand illusion
    Without wrong… there’s no right
    Without dark… there’s no light
    Only beginning to see…

Life isn’t for-getting… Life is for letting
And living… For-giving experience… meaning…

And when all is said and done
There's nothing love can’t overcome
Create joy… Create friends… in a world without end
Amen… Only a thought form away…

 


ANONNA HAE
Why are you taking what’s not given?
It makes me cry… And you call that livin’
There is no heart… There is no soul
And you won’t find what you’re looking for

You take and take… You’re unfulfilled
You are just living from thrill to thrill
Take and take… Unsatisfied
Run and run and you cannot hide the lies… You’ve lied
Take and take… still not content
You know deep down… It isn’t meant to be… that way

So… Why are you taking what’s not given?
It makes me cry… To know you’re livin’
Without a heart… Without a soul
You’ll never find what you’re looking for

You have that itch… You scratch and scratch
Dig deep… but it won’t relax
Turn around… See the sky
And give your love a chance to fly… High

Love’s the healing… Love’s the balm
It gives you peace… and keeps you strong
And it flows deep… through everyone
You don’t need to take it… to get some

Look at me in my eyes
Can you feel me?  Can you see why?
You cannot take my love from me
I’ll give it to you… I’ll give it free
And may it ever bless…
And may it fill… your emptiness.

You cannot take my love from me
I give it away… I give it free
And may it ever bless
And may it heal… your emptiness… yes
Anonna Hae...

SENSES

I can’t take it anymore

Don’t know who I am… don’t know what for

I’m going away…

I can no longer play… the game

 

Will I be leaving… Will I be leaving

All of my senses… All of my senses…

All of my senses here

Leaving… Leaving… Leaving

 

Nowhere to run… No way to hide

I must face this emptiness inside

I’m standing still

Waiting until life fills… the void

 

Will I be leaving… Will I be leaving

All of my senses… All of my senses…

All of my senses here

Leaving… Leaving… Leaving

 

Sit in silence… try to find

The place of peace… beyond the ego mind

Pure love exists

I know there’s more than this …. Pain of mine

 

Will I be leaving… Will I be leaving

All of my senses… All of my senses…

All of my senses here

Leaving… Leaving… Leaving

 

 

 

LOVE YOU RIGHT

I’ve been here before

I know what’s through that door

I know what it is for

A whole lot of pleasure

And a whole lot of pain

   That’s how the game is played

   That’s how the gains are made

   That’s how our love gets strong

 

And I feel it again

Cycles without end

I just hope I’ve made you a friend

So much longing

So much growing

   Keep on breathing and

   Keep on believing

   That’s how our love gets strong

 

     And as I let… you in

     I feel… it begin

     I have known… from the start

     I cannot… and I will not… stop this heart

     This heart… of mine

 

I want to love you now

Even when it hurts

I will love you anyhow

‘Cause it means that much to me

I want us to be free

   And I want to love you right

   I'm gonna love you right

 

   Oh I want to love… I want to love you… 

   Love… you… right.

 

 

DEEPLY

Are you talk… or are you love,

Concept or fulfillment of?

Are you act… or are you real,

Simulated or do you feel… Deeply?

 

     I don’t have to know you to love you…

     I can see worlds in one look in your eye.

     I don’t have to see you to feel you…

     Feel my love… Deeply

 

Don’t hang on to what you know…

Bless the changes… and let them flow.

Remove your boundaries… let them go

Find your freedom… and help it grow… Deeply.

 

     We’re all in this together

     Separation is all in your mind.

     It’ll help if we learn to be fearless

     Most of all it will help to be kind… Deeply.

 

Blow the walls down… speak your truth

Time is now… there’s none to lose.

They say it might come to an end

All the more reason… to be friends… Deeply.

 

     Why not love one another?

     It was said a long time ago…

     As we do for our sisters and our brothers,

     These are the seeds we sow… Sow them sweetly…              And sow them Deeply

 

 

 

PUZZLE

It’s a crazy world out there

Not knowing if anyone cares.

We have pieces of the puzzle

No instructions telling us what to do

But we can make a picture come to view

Telling ourselves stories to come true.

 

And in my picture… all people are friends

And hatred, violence, and wars would end

We’d all have our pieces of the puzzle

And there would be plenty to go around

We would make our pictures come to view

We would make our dreams come true.

 

But it’s a crazy world out there.

And you don’t know if you can afford to care

So you hold on to your precious pieces of puzzle

You don’t know if you ought to let them go

But if you don’t… you will never know

What a bigger picture has to show.

 

And yes… it’s sometimes cruel out there

And we can help it if we care

Pooling all our pieces of the puzzle

Caring, sharing, loving one and all

 

We can make it… we can make it turn out

We can make it… we can make it turn out well

We can make it… we can make a heaven

We can make it… we can make a heaven

We can make a heaven out of hell.

 

 

 

BREAK FREE

I don't know the reason why 

I just seem to walk right by 

What is right in front of me 

Plain for all to see 

But I don't break free. 

 

We don't know what we've got 

Looking for that greener spot 

Saying it's too cold or it's too hot 

Too little, or a lot 

But we don't break free. 

 

  We don't break free 

  Of the walls surrounding 

  We don't break free...

 

And I know better… I know how 

Seize the moment and be here now

Hope for the future…  release the past 

Only love will last 

And it must be free.

 

  Love will break free 

  Of the walls surrounding 

  Love will break free.

 

Someday I'll recognize 

Expose the truth… dispel the lies 

These blocks aren't real… and they will fall 

Bringing down my inner wall 

And I will be free.

 

  I will break free 

 Of the walls inside me 

  I will break free. 

 

  We will break free 

  Of the wall surrounding 

  We will break free 

  We will break free.
