Heart beating red red blood / lungs fill and cells they flood / legs they walk / mouths they talk / people die / oh but baby dont you cry / it's life and it's terrible / it's life and it's beautiful / white teeth and red red tongue / two feet and one belly button / eyes they blink / minds they think / people die oh but darlin don't ask why / it's life and it's terrible / it's life and it's beautiful / and if we fall down / this burning love will lift us / up off the ground up off the ground / arms they reach / hearts they seek / people die oh but baby don't you cry / darlin don't ask why / it's life and it's terrible / it's life and it's beautiful

Wake in the morning / with an ache in your head / you still feel my warmth / next you you in the bed / but if you're going get going gone / you're going keep moving on / wall through the long day / with the pain in your heart / yeah I played my roll well / and you did a good part / but if you're going get going gone / you're going keep moving on / I need you / to be free / oooh I want you / to want that for me / now if you're going get going gone / you're going keep moving on
Track Name: Let This Love In
I know you've got secrets locked up inside your heart / you shut out all the light keep 'em hidden there in the dark / open up I'm coming in don't you fight it / you know you can't knock it 'til you try it / let this love in / of you jump a net will appear / ask and you shall receive my dear / I know you've been burned real bad a few times before / left there all alone crawling on the bedroom floor / open up I'm coming in don't deny it / you know you might life it if you just try it / let this love in / if you jump a net will appear / ask and you shall receive my dear / la da da / if you jump a net will appear / ask and you shall receive my dear / let this love in
Track Name: Sound of My Heart
Could you be the one / are you gonna stay / the light fades into darkness / the night becomes the day / things do change / so stop this spinning wheel / would you make the world slow down / get to know me from the roots / as we rise up from the ground / hear the sound of my heart / beating for you / yeah you know it's true / so could you be the one / are you gonna stay / the light fades into darkness / the night divides the day
Track Name: Single Rose
Today I can’t seem to break free from these chains/every breath I take and move I make just seem to bring me more pain/And all I want from you/is just a single rose/oh, bring it to me in the morning or/the afternoon/bring it to me in January or/the month of June/bring it in the sunshine/or the light of the moon/I can’t seem to break away these feet as heavy as stone wanna stay/Is this just a dream am I an actress in a strange and funny play/and all I’m asking you/is for a single rose/oh, give it to me in the morning or the afternoon/give it to me in January or the month of June/blooming in the sunshine/or the light of the moon/and all I want from you/is just a single rose/oh give it to me in the morning or/ the afternoon/give it to me in January or/the month of June/sing it in the sunshine/or the light of the moon/it’s all I ask of you
Track Name: Homeland
Storm is rolling across the plains/grass is blowing here comes the rain/hold on for the ride/hold on for the ride/dark clouds are gathering/horses are scattering/there’s nowhere to hide/there’s nowhere to hide/the day turns into night in a flash/the only way we see is with a lightning crash/oh my homeland/where the wild flowers grow/oh my country drowning in sorrow/run for the hills my friends/there we might begin again/run for your lives/run for your lives/without a rifle without a bow/with only love and truth in tow/it’s a good day to die/it’s a good day to die/oh my homeland/where the wild flowers grow/oh my country drowning in sorrow/will we remember love/will we rise above/will we remember love/will we rise above
Track Name: Freedom
I hear the birds singing/oh and my ears are ringing/cause freedom calls my name/oh freedom call my name/I feel the earth awaken/oh and my heart is taken/by freedom call my name/oh freedom call my name/I see the ocean waving/oh and my soul is craving/freedom call my name/oh freedom call my name
Track Name: Red Ruby Red
Red ruby red/rock yourself to sleep/dream about the secrets that you keep/rise and shine/and go about your day/smile at the man until you get your way/bring your hands together and pray/god will be your man today/red ruby red/sing yourself to sleep/let your mind fade into the deep/walk beneath the starlight/chant to the moon/the morning light will be revealed to you/lift your head high up and say/I don’t need a man to make my way/lift your head high up and say/I don’t need a man to make my way/bring your hands together and pray/God’s gonna be your man today
Track Name: Om Shanti
You’re already there you see/just where you need to be/all of the beauty/will come down/like an autumn leaf/graceful and fragile/the sense of a peaceful lull/just let it go now/just let it go/om shanti/om shanti/om shanti/om shanti/you’re already there you see
Track Name: Better Than Before
I’m gonna love you better than I did before/I’m gonna show you that I can give you so much more/I wanna know you head to toe and heart to soul/I’m gonna love you now and evermore/I’m gonna be there in the day and in the night/I wanna see you through the dark and in the light/I’m gonna kiss you head to toe and heart to soul/I’m gonna love you now and evermore
Track Name: Down In Mexico
I fell in love/with a pirate/down in Mexico/you should try it/the sky is blue/the sand is white/we drank tequila/stayed up all night/down in Mexico/I dove right in/to the ocean/she drew me in/with just one motion/the waves roll in/the waves roll out/like a mermaid/I twist about/down in Mexico
Track Name: Fallen Angels
I wanna know/where did your love go/Is it lost in the dark/or caught in a black hole/oh never to return/oh my how the truth can burn/I wanna feel the warmth of your soul/see the light in your eyes/behold the after glow/but it’s never to return/oh my how this life can burn/just like fallen angels/we fell/straight from heaven/down to hell/I wanna know/where did your love go/Is it lost in the dark/or caught in a black hole/oh never to return/oh my how this love can burn/I wanna know/where did your love go
Track Name: Oh You Moon
Oh you moon/hanging low/caught in a tree/you make me slow/down to watch you/from dark night to morning dew/How deep do your wounds go/canyons of sorrow/oh fill them with gold/sprinkle stardust/on every heart gone cold/oh you moon
