Track Name: The Magic
Cry of the mother
Let the lover in
Hang up the flag
Turn back
To the womb
Surrender
To the ancient cry
It howls in soul

The magic takes you
Let it break you open
The magic takes you
It breathes you in

Speak to my stillness
Like cedar and pine
Heal my wounds
Cradled by time
As we rush the colors of the sun
With all our grace
We call out...ohhh...

The magic takes you
Let it break you open
The magic takes you
It breathes you in
Track Name: Let Go
It was a game
Incomplete
Thrown to the wolves out in the dark night
To make a way
With bare feet
And half of a truth to guide you
Lie awake every time you turn a page
Close those eyes
I'm gonna sing you a new lullaby

Let go
When your halo falls
Gotta let go
Of the stories and all
Let go
You were a dream in the mind
Gotta let go
A slave of your design
Let go...

Take a breath, in between
Into the silence a calling
From deep within, a memory
Dim little light is shining
Lie awake
All the voices scream my name
Close your eyes
I'm gonna sing you a new lullaby

Let go
When your halo falls
Gotta let go
Of the stories and all
Let go
You were a dream in the mind
Gotta let go
A slave of your design
Let go...
Track Name: Ghosts
Shadow sun is flickering
Moving in and out of time
Uncovering the ghosts
I can almost touch them with my eyes
These roots run deeper than we know
The melodies that gave them life
Got lost somewhere beneath the snow
Like a long releasing sigh

Oh sing to me once more
Wrap me in your purple skies
Oh, like a quiet thunderstorm
Wakes you softly in the night
Like a distant lullaby

Eclipse of moon, the fever flared
Pulling in and out the tides
Washed away my innocence
But the white flame burned right through the night
These wounds cut deeper than we know
Painting lines upon my face
Got lost somewhere beneath the snow
Reaching out to touch the space

Oh sing to me once more
Wrap me in your purple skies
Oh, like a quiet thunderstorm
Wakes you softly in the night
A distant lullaby
Track Name: Light and Smoke
Into the light
I'm stepping over flames, burn through me
Smoke in my eyes
I try to hold my breath, it's too late

I'm running, blown open
Believe in this moment
I'm holding my lifeline
Into another daydream I rise

All of these years
Are passing like a train
Track running to nowhere
Fall on my knees
I'm begging for the right
To believe in an answer

I'm running, blown open
Believe in this moment
I'm holding my lifeline
Into another daydream I rise

I rise...
Holding on and moving fast
So fast


I'm running, blown open
Believe in this moment
I'm holding my lifeline
Into another daydream
I climb, I crawl
I soar, I fall
I shine like stars, then broken down
I love, I learn
My tears they burn
Then light emerges
I finally feel alive
Finally feel alive
Track Name: Under the Golden Sun
Under the Golden Sun I make my stage
The fountains, they pour this life back into me
Bathed in the shadows, shiver on skin
Watch this magic dance begin
Now I'm a stranger in open arms
I'm a beggar, just waiting for your love to come and find me
I send my voice out to sea
'Til I hear it come back round again...singing

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let your story be told
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let it sing from your soul

Under the Golden Sun I've made my way
Watched as my dreams, they got the best of me
My path was tied like knots in a rope
They taught me how to let go
Now I'm a stranger in open arms
I'm a beggar, just waiting for your love to come and find me
I send my voice out to sea
'Til I hear it come back round again...singing

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let your story be told
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let it sing from your soul

It's all inside me, It's all inside me
Let it sing out
I send my voice out to sea, out to sea
Let it ring out softly

I'm a stranger in open arms
I'm a beggar, just waiting for your love to come and find me
I send my voice out to sea
'Til I hear it come back round again...singing

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let your story be told
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let it sing from your soul
Track Name: Begin Again
It's time to move on
It's time to let go
Be the one who always knows
Just follow the hum
The beating heart
Be the seed of all you are

Take this life
Like an open ocean
In your hands
Let it all begin again

Feel as the breath
It rattles your lungs
Singing out the only song
The one that you know
That brought you here
Through the dream it all comes clear

Take this life
Like an open ocean
In your hands
Let it all begin again

And when the darkness tries to hold you near
And shadows knocking at your door
The winded sorrow's distant memory
Oh I will bathe in the silence of your soul

Take this life in your hands
Oh, the voices are calling
Like an open ocean, "begin again!"
And all this time I was searching
Searching for something to believe in
Well I can see now, I can believe that
I am this song playing out
And when the needle starts falling
Dance out loud, just sing it out
Be the living!
And take this life in your hands, in your hands
Like an open ocean
Begin again
Track Name: Re-Entry
It was certain
The timeless lines of the soul
Reconnected
Uncovering a path of old
Embers from the ancient fires
Still burning, burning bright
Guide us back to one
It's the journey
Our Re-Entry

The doors open
Our souls pour through like beams of light
We awaken
An infinite convergence in our eyes
Let us not mistake the call of the highest
The highest love
Truth is echoing the core
It's the journey
Our Re-Entry

The storm has built a lifetime around us
Now, again, the rains (reigns) can fall

Embers from the ancient fires
Still burning, burning bright
Guide us back to one
It's the journey
Our Re-Entry
Let us not mistake the call of the highest
The highest love
Truth is echoing the core
It's the journey
Our Re-Entry
Track Name: Between the Veils
Cover me like a mother
When the wind blows, makes you shudder
Hold your head under water
Feel the silence take you under, take you in

Then the sirens scream through the air
Calling you back to the fight
Light a shock wave, straight through your heart
Wanting you back to life

Let me fall into nothing
Like a picture out of focus
Cut the line at the river
Your are floating like a vision, back in

Then the sirens scream through the air
Calling you back to the fight
Light a shock wave, straight through your heart
Wanting you back
And then the tears flow like signals in smoke
Calling you back to the light
Feel the whispers tangle your soul
Wanting you back

Letting go of time
Walking past the signs
The shedding of the mind
Oh don't you bring me back to life, to life

Then the sirens scream through the air
Calling you back to the fight
Light a shock wave, straight through your heart
Wanting you back
And then the tears flow like signals in smoke
Calling you back to the light
Feel the whispers tangle your soul
Wanting you back

Well don't you bring me back
Don't you bring me back
Please don't bring me back
Don't bring me back

Cover me like a mother
Feel the silence take you under, take you in
Track Name: It Sings In You
It all begins now
Where you always knew
Deep in the heart, a place so true
A lifting bird with golden wings
Born of a love that always sings in you
In you
In you
In you
