Track Name: Light & Clear
Letting emotions rise in me
They come and go
Like waves in the sea
I’m a sea shell on the sand
The water fills me and goes back

Watching the invisible wind
Playing its endless symphony
I hear a call from ancient times
Reminding me how I can be
In tranquility
To be light and clear

Trying to capture magic
Put it into words and melody
The moon is shining high above
Pours into my eyes
The perfect Love
Of infinity
I stay light and clear

Letting emotions rise in me
They come and go
Like waves in the sea
I’m a sea shell on the sand
The water fills me and goes back
To infinity
I stay light and clea
Track Name: Back To The Circle
What can I do?
I can’t control...
I keep on and again I fall
The same old story that's been told
What can I do?
Please let me know
So I can keep myself from falling
Into this old story
I sing to you:

Come to me
Oh, why can’t you see?
Our love is free
Just let it be

Instead you go
Back to your circle on and on and on and
Don’t reach out
For new roads to go by
I know that it’s not about me
It’s only your inability

But happily this time I find
That I can choose not to dive
But happily this time I find
That I can choose not to dive
Into this ocean of despair
And simply sing:

Come to me
It’s so clear to see
My love is free
It gives me the key

And I don’t go
Back to my circle on and on and on and
Want to reach out for
New roads to go by
I feel so good about me
Without your uncertainty

What can you do?
You can’t control...
You keep on and again you fall
But happily this time I find
That I can choose not to dive

And I don’t go
Back to my circle
On and on and on and
Want to reach out for
New roads to go by
I feel so good about me
In my own
Majesty
Track Name: My Silent Past
My passion is burning
Inside my body
I want to live
I want to give
My love to all that is

May I grow quietly
In your garden
As a speechless plant
That someday
My fruits and flowers
Will sing the legend
Of my silent past

(Past) is when the lesson is learnt
Remember all the milestones
I hear a cryI see a smile
They show me where to go

May I grow...

Let me show my weakest spot
Let me touch your gentle heart
I see my fearsI taste your tears
Let’s drink the milk of love

May I grow...
Track Name: Simple Joy
Why this time is there
Fear and sadness?
What do I want from you?
What do you feel for me?
I see myself in your face
I know your body from long ago
You are my lover
And my brother
And my little boy

The forest gives me comfort
Reminds me of the simple joy
Beyond our fear and sadness
There is a pure eternal soul

I want to love you endlessly
Without any captivity
To be with you in a space
With no boundaries
We can shine our light
When the heart is clean

The forest gives me comfort
Reminds me of the simple joy
Beyond our fear and sadness
There is a pure eternal soul
Track Name: Disharmonized
We disharmonize
Someone made a wrong note
It echoes in the hall
Like fear
All the little creatures
In all the woods and valleys
Can hear it and shrink
Looking forPeace

I want to hug a tree
Where is the soothing touch
Of soft flowing water
To untangle my hair?
A dischord is squeezing
The breath out of my lungs
The big flute is waiting
For the wind to blow
Again

Walking among the crowd
Faces all passing by
I walk and I sing
For crying out loud
All the different people
And all the sounds and colors
The rhythm that I feel
In everything is
One
Track Name: Breathing
Oh these skies
Dark and wide
Calling me to laugh and cry
Bless the air I am breathing

Oh this oak
Strong and wise
Tall and green
As the grass below
Ever growing ever breathing

I welcome the sunrise
Without any sleep
Who knows what will be
This new day

Oh this light
Rising slow
Glowing through
The leaves and clouds
The earth and I are breathing

This home ain’t mine
This fire and this garden
These big strong arms
Won’t hold me
While I rest

I welcome the sunrise...

Oh these skies
Bright and wide
Calling me to laugh and cry
Bless the air I am breathing
Track Name: My Secret
Trees and plants and birds and bees
Are all my friends
They come and bring the sound of beauty
To my ears
They teach me how to move
And how to breath
How to be in tune

I see my song
It’s hidden in a flower
It keeps my secret
I sit in this
Beautiful being
And find my song within

My soul tells it's hunger
In my body
Deep desire runs through my veins
In my blood
It spreads out of the firy sun that is burning
Inside my core

The owl is on the branch
Watching me
He knows my secret
I sit in this
Beautiful being
And find my song within
Track Name: Keeping Watch
In the morning
When I began to wake
It happened again
That feeling
That you beloved
Had stood over me
All night
Keeping watch
That feeling
That as soon as I began to stir
You put your lips
On my forehead

In the morning
When I began to wake
It happened again
That feeling
That as soon as I began to stir
You put your lips
On my forehead
And lit a holy lamp
Inside my heart
Track Name: The Door
The pain in my brain
The pain in my brain
Won’t stop
Won’t stop
The air inside
The air inside
Too humid and thick
I go out to sit
In the cold in the rain
I wrap myself
Warm and tight

I remember a night like this
A year ago
A year ago
Pain drove me out of a bed like this
A year ago
It was raining and quiet
And cold just like now
The skies then like now
Were so vast

It struck me with
Heavenly grace

Looking for the door
Gotta have some more
Of this happiness
How to reach that place of evermore?

With my hands
I light up a fire
Just like a year ago
The flame opens up
My heart like the sun
The heat runs deep
Down into my bones
I realize the birds are singing
They are calling
The morning to come

And it strikes me with
Heavenly grace

Looking for the door
Gotta have some more
Of this happiness
How to reach that place of evermore
