Track Name: moment to moment
MOMENT TO MOMENT
Moment to moment… one thing to the next
The day connects to the night with colors in the sky
Moment to moment… it all keeps on.
And I am drinking deeply of this life as it’s going by.

When I allow the wise being in myself to speak, it does not seek power. It is only love.
When I allow the light in my heart to shine, it is not mine to keep. It is only love.

Moment to moment… I sing with my muse.
I pray for Peace to use me for Her purpose in the world.
Moment to moment… life is an art.
The path of the heart is clear, though it’s somewhat bent and curled.

When I allow the wise being in myself to speak, it does not seek power. It is only love.
When I allow the light in my heart to shine, it is not mine to keep. It is only love.

Moment to moment… one thing to the next
The passing days are marked by colors in the sky.
Moment to moment…
I am watching them go by

Track Name: the mask
THE MASK

I am energy coming into form...loving hands mold me into being
denser and denser i become...behold the world... i am now seeing
behind the mask, beneath the flesh
lives the Spirit that is Self and ALL
beyond the body, inside the shell
lives the ONE we know well
but we forget and we recall

can you see the essence of me here? I am behind this face that i am wearing
i am only here to play this role in some unknown drama we are sharing
behind the mask, beneath the flesh
lives the Spirit that is Self and ALL
beyond the body, inside the shell
lives the One we know well
but we forget and we recall


why be so afraid to shed the form? it is not me...nor is it you
we are Spirit...we are Love...
only Love...only Love...only Love is true...
only Love is true...

Track Name: dis-illusioned
DISILLUSIONED

what made me think you would be what I wanted? how could i justify such as expectation?
why am i so disappointed in the truth? horrified and hurt by the revelation...

disillusioned...i've heard it's a good thing to be freed of my fantasies
disillusioned...after the sting, I will see things as they are...
i can see you as you are...

i don't really plan to make a habit of my pain, i pray each day to find forgiveness
in my heart
but still, the angry feelings catch me naked and afraid
so suddenly erupting...as my self-image falls apart, i'm disillusioned

Disillusioned...i've heard it's a good thing to be freed of my fantasies
disillusioned...after the sting, I will see things as they are...
i can see you as you are...

yes, it really helps believing that life here is a lesson
and everything's a opportunity to grow
i know someday, i'll be thankful for every situation, but right now, this is all i know
still i find back and forth i go

what makes me think you will be what i want now
so often i have lived in my imagination
i just want to love you the way that you are and not the someone of my own creation
Disillusioned...i've heard it's a good thing to be freed of my fantasies
disillusioned...after the sting, I will see things as they are...
i can see you as you are...

Track Name: pure love
PURE LOVE
I’ve been over it a million times in my head.
Who did what to whom and why why why.
There’s too many factors for it to make any sense.
And I’m much too anxious to leap to my own defense.
I play the same scenario over and over.
A little bit different each time but the same
feelings keep flowing from some fathomless well.
There’s no end to the anger, the fear and the hell.

Where are you, my Lord, my Love? Where are you?
Why don’t you help me to turn down the noise in my brain?
My thoughts sink me deeper and deeper in pain.
Help me know how to surrender.
Help me know how to remember your Love… your love…. Pure love…

I feel myself the victim of this pattern of thought
I want to make it stop but I feel like I’m caught in web of confusion and anguish and rage.
What’s happened to the me that was the healer and the sage?

Where are you, my God, my Love? Where are you?
Why don’t you help me to turn down the noise in my brain.
My thoughts sink me deeper and deeper in pain.
Help me know how to surrender.
Help me know how to remember your Love… your love…. Pure love…

Track Name: letting go
LETTING GO

how many lives have we spent playing this game?
the toys have changed but the rules stay the same
how much pain have we endured in the name of Love? when does this suffering end?
how many times has this drama repeated? a few minor details added or deleted
how many times have we felt cheated by out expectations? when does our suffering end?

i am letting go...surrendering this image of my desire
i've been burned to often in that fire...i am letting go...

how many ages have i been trapped in my mind? searching for the answers...asking for why
when i can only BE what i am trying to find...it's Love...Love


i am letting go...releasing my need to understand
and to hold all the reasons tight in my hand...i am letting go...into Love...

how many years have i been writing this song? rearranging words and
notes as they come along

how many more will it take before i get the message? what do i have to know?
I already Know
i am letting go...
surrender...release...
I AM Peace and chaos
I AM Laughter and Wailing
I Am Joy and Grief
I AM Light and Darkness
I Am love and emptiness
I Am...
om

Track Name: i wasn't looking for you
I WASN'T LOOKING FOR YOU

all alone...just the memory of your arms around me
thoughts of kisses and a love that found me...I wasn't looking for you
time so sweet...all the ways we linked our hearts together
all the moments that we touched forever...I wasn't looking for you

and yet, here i am now...missing you...that i swore i would not do
i picture what you're doing now..i wonder where and when and how i will see you again

but i'm all alone...i have chosen my way carefully
facing feeling i hardly dare to see...
i've been looking for you...
i've been waiting for you...
i've been aching for you...

Track Name: the chance of a lifetime
CHANCE OF A LIFETIME

by Mitch Blake and Linda Worster

when the chance of a lifetime comes your way, comes your way
when the love you have dreamed of appears
resist… but just gently, resist all your fears
when the love you have dreamed of appears

a star from the sky that was yours filled your dreams
but your prayers and your hopes went unanswered, it seems

for once in your life… take a chance… take a chance
your love stands before you revealed
your mind is unsure, but your heart knows the way
to follow the path once concealed

you dreamed of a star you could hold in your hands
now your wish has come true and before you love stands

when the chance of a lifetime comes your way, comes your way
when the love you have dreamed of appears
resist… but just gently, resist all your fears
when the love you have dreamed of appears

love, bright as a star and as full as the moon
now has opened your heart and like a flower, you bloom

when the chance of a lifetime comes your way
comes your way……..
Track Name: gently (a song for Mother Earth and Martin)
GENTLY (A SONG FOR MOTHER EARTH AND MARTIN)

Our Mother Earth is changing- bringing healing to her children.
Our Mother Earth is changing- bringing peace into our planet…
Bringing peace into the land and seas that span it…

Heal us Mother with your love. Touch our hearts and guide us. Help us trust the Self inside us.
Heal us Mother with your peace. Help us create this world we can see. Help us hold the vision gently.
Gently…

Our Mother Earth is changing- ending all our wars and cruelty
Our Mother Earth is changing- as Her people choose to realize the dream
That we all can live in harmony… harmony… harmony…

I have a dream we are free at last. Thank God compassion is the rule.
I have a dream we can help each other when no-one’s afraid to appear the fool.

Heal us Mother with your love. Touch our hearts and guide us. Help us trust the Self inside us.
Heal us Mother with your peace. Help us create this world we can see. Help us hold the vision gently.
Gently…

Track Name: no boundaries (letter home from space)
NO BOUNDARIES

from this vantage point in space, there are no boundaries
no lines are drawn upon our earth
NOW is the time to see our planet as one place
our walls may cost us more than they are worth

the choices of each affect the whole
the results of our short-sightedness are taking their toll
should the spoils of our greed really be the goal?

from this distant view of earth, she is so beautiful
blue and white, she peacefully spins
her suffering appears only as we move closer
but if we heal her now, everybody wins

we can’t continue to pollute what we are breathing and eating and drinking
with cutting down a rain forest, what can we be thinking?
even with our fears, we must learn to trust the linking

from this vantage point in space, there are no boundaries
no lines are drawn upon our earth
