Track Name: Beacon
Say what you will
the great turning has come
we the shining forest
to the darkness belong
to the darkness bring beacons
rooted deep, standing strong
we the shining forest
to the darkness bring song
Track Name: All Of This
I am but a part of this
all I am is all I give
everything that comes to me
comes as sure as I will breathe

Sure as tempest storms us in two
pulls us planets
oppose orbits
sure as forces spin us cycles
spiral changes joyous frightful
surely my dear you’ve sung to the moon
cross desert and sand
cross time and plan
cross hidden and bloom
you’ve sung to the moon…
Track Name: Waterfall
Baby this place is crazy
we gotta hold on, we gotta stand up tall
and when the fire it tries to change us we let it in

Quicksand becoming fountain, becoming open, becoming joy and pain
into the ocean, this holy moment you dive in

But take a look at me now
I am a shadow dancing with light
I am a freedom falling like rain
I am the love you gave

I’m comin’ on down the bend, ain’t nothin gonna stop me now
whenever I call your name you come in like a waterfall
and I’m singin’ you through the night, on every breath you’ve given
I’m ridin’ on waves of time, makin’ my way, makin’ my way…

Error becoming pious, becoming righteous, becoming fallen grace
into this garden we’re cast as children to begin
Listen: the winds are changing, the water’s rising, the compass points us home
and are we movin’, and are we choosin’ to stay awake

But take a look at me now
I am a wild wind in the night
I am a letting go of the reigns
I am the love you gave

I’m comin’ on down the bend, ain’t nothin gonna stop me now
whenever I call your name you come in like a waterfall
and I’m singin’ you through the night, on every breath you’ve given
I’m ridin’ on waves of time, makin’ my way, makin’ my way…
Track Name: Flicker
Blue smoke, flicker deep, turn my sight and take my sleep
white light shadows face — are you friendly foe? are you runaway?
ashes fallin sweet, you burned up every part of me
bright night shadows grace , will I let you in, will you teach me patience
slowly with the moon I wane away and become new
leaving with the dawn, may fullness rise in the world beyond
blue smoke, flicker deep, turn my sight and take my sleep
white light shadows face, into every name will you come this way again

Blue smoke, flicker deep, run me wild and set me free
wide eyed sudden wake, spark to breath will become flame
blow ye bellow sweet, give you all these lungs can breathe
grow thee to your might, be the way of wonder sighing
slowly with the moon wane away and become new
leaving with the dawn, may fullness rise in the world beyond
blue smoke, flicker deep, run me wild and set me free
wide eyed sudden wake, into every name
will you come this way again
Track Name: Stars
Across valleys folding, across waters frozen
across the time between my dawn and your setting sun
these are stories blowin’, these words tender showin’
how can I touch the shape of wing-binding’s falling ‘way
oh tongue, set you free, and oh mind let it be
oh land, teach me how to lay in the storming wind
across hearts aching, across skies a-breaking
across the time between our suns

I’m lost in your stars
by the light of the dark moon
just be as you are, just do as you do
by grace and devotion
by lettin go, lettin go overything
by breath as it takes you
by the light of the dark moon
I’m lost in your stars

Two-toned, moment wide, breathing, stay with it
I aim for the place between all longing and letting be
speaking honeywine, making wishes star-side
these are the arrows in the battle of becoming
make me a warrior hummingbird, disarming
you be a compass to guide this flight
take me surrendered, fill me to spilling over
the roots of this endless sky

I’m lost in your stars…
Track Name: Fountain
If I am a fountain, I am a spring
you bathe in my rivers, I’m giving you everything
I am a cup, you be the wine
I’ll drink till I’m thirsty, drink till I’m blind by your brilliance
every day, in every way, every day
your shining is calling me out
your shining is summoning light from my skin
to be calling us out
in all of our dawning

If I am a mountain, you are a valley
we’ll see in each other the balance of everything
I am a feather in the wing of a swan
the bond never broken, love in a life beyond time
we’ll see it this way, staying awake, every day
your shining is calling me out
your shining is summoning light from my skin
to be calling us out
in all of our dawning
Track Name: O Come Ye
Oh come ye mother waters
I am diving into thee
float me on your rivers
and sing me with your sea…
Track Name: Wheel Of Time
May my voice be strong
and this step be light
may our learning come
on this wheel of time
As a breath be took
may the lessons glide
swiftly as the wind
gentle as a sigh
and hear it callin’ me home
hear it callin’ me listening
hear it callin’ my soul
come and be my guide
walkin’ by my side
as a breath be taken given
taken given
callin’ me home
come and be my guide
Track Name: Sweet Sailor
There’s a demon inside the cage behind bars of memory
snakes down deep like lava molten melting in each crevice
creaking age of myself, I rise from leaden limbs
envisioned as a heavy deadbolt, longing locking thoughts up
remind: the key — all this is fleeting
reweaving echoes singing singing, turning, over, over

I miss you, I still miss you
when you’re here in this same room
with the lives that we spoke to
let the name do what the feeling soothed
I miss you, but no tale tells how I miss you
sweet sailor, in this same room
with the lives that we spoke to

From the image of a trace of what’s cradled and let long ago,
become the same as the one I knew so sweetly
and i thank you day and deeply
in each footprint we place in
grace lands, superb silence, lush jungles of leaves
it’s the only conversation worth listening to
yet here, in this same room, back to where I’m used to speaking quickly

something falls back on itself
there’s a possibility
in this silence….
Track Name: Take It Slow
Take it slow, and don’t get in your way
keep it movin’ at the pace of every weather
look within, and don’t forget you are surrounded by the wind
as it rushes in your lungs

oh Honey — you are born of the moon
precious cave, don’t forget there is unknown inside you
don’t turn away from yourself by bein’ like somebody else
you are tide crashin’ over and call of the mountains
and your darkest tunnels are where your light come from

So take it slow, what you long for’s on its way
don’t stop reachin’, taste the sound of every color
deep within, let your wild be uncaged
run with the wind and rush into its lungs

oh Honey — you are born of the moon
precious cave, don’t forget there is unknown inside you
don’t turn away from yourself by bein’ like somebody else
you are tide crashin’ over and call of the mountains
and your darkest tunnels are where your light come from
oh aim for the journey, and grow with the night
be brave in your loving, keep steady your sight

oh Honey — you are born of the moon
precious cave, don’t forget there is unknown inside you
don’t turn away from yourself
by bein’ like somebody else
don’t turn away…
Track Name: Stars (Acoustic)
Across valleys folding, across waters frozen
across the time between my dawn and your setting sun
these are stories blowin’, these words tender showin’
how can I touch the shape of wing-binding’s falling ‘way
oh tongue, set you free, and oh mind let it be
oh land, teach me how to lay in the storming wind
across hearts aching, across skies a-breaking
across the time between our suns

I’m lost in your stars
by the light of the dark moon
just be as you are, just do as you do
by grace and devotion
by lettin go, lettin go overything
by breath as it takes you
by the light of the dark moon
I’m lost in your stars

Two-toned, moment wide, breathing, stay with it
I aim for the place between all longing and letting be
speaking honeywine, making wishes star-side
these are the arrows in the battle of becoming
make me a warrior hummingbird, disarming
you be a compass to guide this flight
take me surrendered, fill me to spilling over
the roots of this endless sky

I’m lost in your stars…
