Track Name: Keep On Walking
Left right, left right, one foot in front of the other, gotta keep on walking, keep on walkin'
This life, your life one foot in front of the other, gotta keep on walking, keep on walkin’

Sometimes life moves too fast, from the sunrise to the sunset
Don’t be afraid when the light’s too bright, look away

This life, your life one foot in front of the other, gotta keep on walking, keep on walkin’
Balancing the earth and sky, one foot in front of the other, gotta keep arms open, keep eyes open

Sometimes life moves too fast, from the sunrise to the sunset
Don’t be afraid when the night calls your name

Balancing the earth and sky, one foot in front of the other, gotta keep arms open, keep eyes open
Balancing the earth and sky, one foot in front of the other, gotta keep arms open, keep eyes open

Sometimes life moves too fast, from the sunrise to the sunset (repeat)
Don’t be afraid when the lights too bright, look away
Don’t be afraid when the night calls your name, when the night calls your name
Track Name: Spirit Child
How do you stay?
When everything falls away?
How you know?
And let everything else go

Let it all out
Even the bad parts
Let it all in
Even the sad parts
Let it all out
Even the rain falls down

Trust what you know
And let everything else go
You are divine, you always were

Oh spirit child
You're never alone
I'm always by your side
From darkness till dawn
Keep your heart open wide through the turning of the tide
and know that
You are divine, you are divine

Let it all out
Even the bad parts
Let it all in
Even the sad parts
Let it all out
Even the rain falls down (repeat)

You are divine
Track Name: She
She who walks through the night
She who speaks the light
She is calling out to you
She is calling for you
(repeat)

Rise up – Wake up
Open yourself up
Rise up – Wake up
Now is the Time

You know you ready to fly
You must be ready to fly high

Rise up – Wake up
Open yourself up
Rise up – Wake up
Now is the Time

She who walks through the night
She who speaks the light
She is calling out to you
She is calling for you
(repeat)
Track Name: She Was a Lover
She was a lover, who wanted to be set free
She was a traveler – over lands and distance seas
She wasn’t lonely but just like you and me
She searched the world over for truth and beauty

One day she passed you by with magic in her eyes
The winds began over the lands
Who are your people and why are you alone?
She searched the world over for her home

Starlight
Silver moonlight
Golden sunrise
We’re born alone and alone we die
We’re born alone and alone we die

She was a warrioress wanting to believe
Sticks and stones won’t break your bones
Lay your sword down upon the ground
deep inside home is found
deep inside home is found

Starlight
Silver moonlight
Golden sunrise
Lay it down, let it all down

Old woman this is your place
All those years are shown on your face
Fire, smoke, magic in her eyes
This isn’t the time for compromise
Ahhh ooooh

Collect your courage
Carry on your way, anything is possible today
Claim your life, the time is now
Deep inside home is found
Deep inside home is found

Starlight
Silver moonlight
Golden sunrise
We’re here to live, we’re here to love
We’re here to learn, trust and let go
We’re here to serve the ways we know how
We’re here to share the beauty of our soul
The beauty of our soul
Track Name: Blooming Dreams
Deep in the valley, where no one goes
Light streams through the canopy, warms the earth below
I planted a seed a long time ago
Deep in the valley, before the first snow

Wind blew so cold chilled to the bone
Frozen from the inside out unable to move
I planted a seed a long time ago, deep in the valley before the first snow

Do you remember?
Do you still believe?
What it’s like to remember
What its like to believe

Sunrise wakes my Soul
Light streams the canopy, warms the Earth below
I planted a dream a long time ago
Deep in the valley, before the first snow

Blooming Dreams Awakening
Open,open, open receive
I planted a seed a long
Open,open, open let it go

Do you remember?
Do you still believe?
What it’s like to remember
Feel the Earth beneath your feet

What its like to be free?
What its like to believe?
Feel the earth beneath your feet

Deep in the valley, where no one goes
Light streams through the canopy, warms the earth below
I planted a seed a long time ago
Deep in the valley, before the first snow
Track Name: Butterfly
Something in the air she breathes
Calls me in and carries me inside
Something in the air she breathes
Takes me for the sweetest ride
Butterflies are flying by
Across the sky

Something in the air she breathes
Calls me in and carries me inside
Something in the air she breathes
Takes me for the sweetest ride

Feathered strokes of your name she breathes
Feathered strokes of your name she speaks
Feathered strokes of your name she weaves across the sky

There's something in the air she breathes
Calls me in and carries me inside
There's something in the air she breathes
Takes me for the sweetest ride

You can see her when you go deep inside
You can feel her when you close eyes
Talk to her when you look up at the sky

You can carry me inside
Transform into liquid light
Come out on the other side
and fly

Something in the air she breathes
Track Name: Open Hand
I hear you still
I am returning to you

The map’s been lost, I’ve forgotten how I got here
But I know you’ll wait for me

I’ve never felt so close to you
Great mystery, raven energy
Wings at my back
Yeah, you

Why so many things after “I”?
The primordial mystery of being-ness
Creativity follows stillness
Love follows Freedom
Freedom follows Love
More Open hand
All Things
Free
Track Name: Weather Vane
Clouds are clearing, stars reappearing
And my love for you remains strong

Clouds are clearing, stars reappearing
And my love for you carries on, on

The wings of the wind whispering medicine
And the call of the crow sends shivers through my soul
And the buzz of the bees plead for mercy

Clouds are clearing
Stars reappearing
And my love for you remains strong
Clouds are clearing
Stars reappearing
And my love for you carries on

The wings of the wind whispering let us in
And the call of the crow sends shivers through my soul
And the buzz of the bees plead for mercy

Sri ram, jay ram
Sri ram, jay ram
Sri ram, jay ram

I will wait for you
I will pray for you

You can have everything, that your heart desires
We can have everything, that our hearts desire
I can have everything, that my heart desires

I will wait for you / I will pray for you / (repeat)

Clouds are clearing
Stars reappearing
And my love for you remains strong

Clouds are clearing
Stars reappearing
And my love for you carries on (repeat and fade out) last time, no guitar
