Track Name: A New Earth
Nobody likes an angry singer ‘cept a teenager listening to punk
Nobody likes an angry woman except another one
Nobody likes an angry lover, yet there’s so many of them
Nobody likes an angry person and still here I am

2019 on Planet Earth
May all this anger rebirth
2019 on Planet Earth
May all this anger rebirth
A new earth
Somewhere inside of me
A new earth
peaceful and free
A new earth miraculously
A new earth for you and me

Nobody likes a angry child who just wants to be loved
Nobody likes an angry father except another one
Nobody likes an angry country tearing itself apart
Nobody likes an angry people yet here we are

Nobody likes anger running up their spine
Nobody likes an urgent message saying now is the time
Nobody likes an angry woman singing her truth
But here i am, this is what i do
I am just like you
I am angry too

Nobody likes an angry moment but they come and go
Nobody likes to admit there’s not much we really know
Nobody likes to remember we’re all gonna die
Nobody ever gets curious if that too is not a lie
Track Name: Six
When I was born I made my family five
Two older brothers and two parents so alive
We lived like that for about 3 years
Then number 6, she came
Thank God, another girl
My mother dreamed her in to be
I didn’t know it when back then
But she had come to complete our family

We were six
Coming together
Six
Loving ourselves into better
Six
Coming together
All the parts into one
All the parts into one

Six years ago my mother left this earth
And for a while it felt like we were five
Til I looked up and saw her six grandchildren
And never felt her so alive

They are six
Coming together
Six
Loving us all into better
Six
Coming together
All her parts into one
All her parts into one

I remember when I was six, I could feel the whole universe
Oh, but it frightened me, so I learned to hide it away
It’s taken me 36 years to let it all come through again
And now here I am……..42
Which is just

Six
Coming together
Six
Loving myself into better
Six
Coming together
All my parts into one
All my parts into one
Six points on the star of David
Six days to create the world
Six cells in a bees honeycomb
All the parts into one
All the parts into one
Track Name: I Am the Ocean
(Algonquin Water Song)
Nee bee wah bow
End die en
Ah khee mis quee
Nee bee wah bow
Hey ya hey ya hey ya hey
Hey ya hey ya hey ya ho

It doesn’t matter which ocean it is
When those waves start crashing, instant bliss
And it doesn’t matter, west coast or east
When those waves are rolling, I am free

Cause I am the Ocean, I am the Sea
I know where I came from and who I’m supposed to be
I am the Ocean, Every single wave
May we all rise and awake

It doesn’t matter which which country I’m in
When those waves start crashing, I’m home again
It doesn’t matter who’s sitting next to me
When those waves are rolling, I am free
Track Name: 11 Years Later
You taught me how to pray
You taught me how to cry
You taught me how to stay
And give it one more try
You taught me how to laugh
And enjoy the ride
You taught me how to give
You taught me how to die
11 years later and you’re still here
Deep inside my heart guiding a path so clear
11 years later, still feels like yesterday
When I watched your soul expanding away
How I watched your soul expanding away

Sometimes I wish I could still hear your voice
In all it’s judgement, in all it’s love
Sometimes I wish I could feel your body too
In all its imperfection, in all its truth

11 years later and you’re still here
Deep inside my heart guiding a path so clear
11 years later, still feels like yesterday
When I felt your soul expanding away
How I felt your soul expanding away

I remember when you called me strong
I am sorry for when I was afraid
You promised to talk to me after you were gone
Thank you for always guiding my way

11 years later and you’re still here
Deep inside my heart guiding a path so clear
11 years later, still feels like yesterday
When I watched your soul expanding away
How I felt your soul expanding away
I still feel your soul expanding today
Track Name: Resurrection
Even though I want to give up, I’m not gonna
Cause there’s no good in that
Even though I want to give up, I’m not gonna
Cause the world needs what I have
It may kill me to get this next sound out
But I know I’m held
I know I’m held

Somebody help me
Somebody give me everything that I need right now
Somebody show me I am worthy somehow
Cause I know the world needs exactly who I am
And I’m the only one that’s keeping it from me
And from everyone

I gotta rise up be free
Rise up be free
Rise up be free
Remember how to be me and be happy
Rise up be free
Rise up be free
Rise up be free be me be happy

May my struggle and resurrection
Inspire somebody else to struggle and
Resurrect the very thing they’re here to tell
My story, my purpose, my way of being true
May my struggle inspire you
Cause I’m so tired of struggle
Tired of the race
Hiding deep inside
Never know the grace
Gotta let it out
find a way to be
All that I am
Set it all free
And may my struggle and resurrection
Inspire you
Yes may my struggle and resurrection
Inspire you to be true

We’re not gonna give up, even when we want to
Cause there’s no good in that
Not gonna give up, even when we want to
The world needs what we have
Gotta believe we’re worthy
Gotta believe it’s true
I have something and so do you

And may our struggle and resurrection
Inspire somebody else to struggle and resurrect
The very thing they’re here to tell
Our story, our purpose, our way of being of being true
May our struggle inspire you
Cause I’m so tired of struggle
Tired of the race
Hiding deep inside
Never know the grace
Gotta let it out
find a way to be
All that I am
Set it all free
And may my struggle and resurrection inspire you
May my struggle and resurrection
Inspire you to be true
To be true
To be true
To be true
Track Name: Be Creative
11 years ago you knew you were dying
But no one believed you
Including me
We didn’t want to believe
We didn’t know how to live without you

I wonder if you felt afraid
Or alone
Or helpless
Kind of how I feel right now
11 years later
11 years
11 years later

11 years ago I chose myself
Began a journey of self love and truth
I wanted to separate from you
Here I am now
Still struggling with the same things
Loss
Food
Mother
Anger
Angry. So angry.

It’s an 11 year and
I was thinking that was good
And now I’m not so sure

To be creative is to
Feel pain and joy
Like polar opposites

To be creative is to
Realize they are one

To be creative is to know death is only a moment
No matter how much fear it may awake

To be creative is to know your mother was your greatest love
And also a servant of the Divine
To bring you back to yourself

To be creative is to cry and write and listen and cough
Allowing energy to move through you because
You are an antenna for love

To be creative is to laugh at how painful it can be to be alive

To be creative is everything
So be creative

Be creative and Trust

To be creative is why we are here
And who we are

Be Creative
Track Name: Moments of Bliss
Funny thing about Bliss
It’s gonna go away
Funny thing about life
It’s gonna end someday
Funny thing about you
Best heart I’ve ever known
Funny thing about me
Here again alone

And I
Trust my Heart
Like the ocean flowing
On and on
And I
Trust my breath
Like a river that never
Ends or begins
And I trust me
And I trust you
And I trust everything in all we do
I trust love
Whatever that is
I’m so grateful for our moments of
Bliss

Funny thing about truth
It’s gonna have its way
Funny thing about change
It comes everyday
Funny thing about now
It’s all we ever have
Funny thing about me
I love to laugh

Hold on to me, Hold on to you

Funny thing about songs
They can come like lightning bolts
Funny thing about love
It’s in all these notes
Funny thing about loss
It’s gonna just keep happening
Funny thing about us
We were born to sing

And I
Trust my Heart
Like the ocean flowing
On and on
And I
Trust my breath
Like a river that never
Ends or begins
And I trust you
And I trust me
And I trust one day we will all be free
Cause I trust love
And all that it is
I’m so grateful for our moments of
Bliss

Hold on to me
Hold on to you
Track Name: Love Again
I remember the first time my heart was broken
Thought I’d never love again
I remember the first time I fell to my knees
Thought I’d never love again
Oh but here I am
Loving you
Here I am
Living true

I remember the first time I played a song
Felt like energy straight from my heart
I remember the sting of someone’s critical thoughts
And I remember how I shut it all off
Oh but here I am
Singing for you
Here I am
Living true

It’s not what happens to us that makes our life
It’s how we get back up again
It’s not what we lose that makes our life
It’s how we learn to love again
And again and again and again
And again and again and again
And again and again and again
Love again and again and again and again
Track Name: Sanctity
I know you think I’m crazy
Spent my whole life trying to prove you wrong
But I woke up this morning
And realized exactly where I belong
Inside the sanctity of my own heart

I know that this looks crazy
But I don’t have time to prove you wrong
Cause I woke up this morning
And realized exactly where I belong
Inside the sanctity of my own heart

Let it rise like the dawning of a new day
May we realize there is nothing more to say
Let it rise like a star for everyone
May all this questioning finally be done

Cause I see, I see now and I hear
And I let love awaken beside every fear
Inside the sanctity of my own heart

Let it rise like a dawning of a new day
May we rest in the emptiness, there is nothing left to say
Let it rise like a star for everyone
And may all this questioning finally be done

Who we are is what we seek
Oh blessed are the meek
What we know is not at all what it is
I’m so grateful now beyond bliss

Let it rise like the dawning of a new day
May we all realize there is nothing left to say
Let it rise like a star for everyone
May all this questioning finally be done
May all this questioning finally be done
May all Beings finally be One
Track Name: Walk Your Way On Through
If I could make it better by writing a song, you know I would
But I stopped living my life long ago from should
If I could lift it all up, take all your pain away
You know I’d sing that song, that is a prayer that I would pray
I’ve shown you the light
I’ve shown you the door
And I just can’t keep doing it anymore
No no my love it’s time for you
To walk your way on through
It’s time for you
To walk your way on through
I can’t do it for you
No no no I just can’t do it for you
It’s time to walk your way on through

If I could write a song to heal the world that’s what I’d do
But how many of us even believe that could be true
If I could lift it all up, take all the pain away
That is a song I’d sing, that is a prayer that I would pray

We’ve been shown the light
We’ve been shown the door
And we just can’t keep doing this anymore
No no my love it’s time for You
To walk your way on through
It’s time for you
To walk your way on through
no one’s gonna do it you
No no no no no one’s gonna do it for you
It’s time to walk your way on through
It’s time to walk your way on through
I am always with you
It’s time we walk our way on through
Track Name: Born Free
Sometimes I remember when I was born
So much possibility in store
So many people making so much noise
But I can feel the silent unlimited void

I was born a pure white light
And all my life I have been fighting the good fight
Now I just sit back allow and let it all be
Watch out world I am born free
Watch out world I am born free

Like the sun, I shine on everything
Every step I take and every note I sing
And I invite all of you to rise up too
I am nothing without you
I am nothing without you

Sometimes I remember when I was born
So much possibility in store
So many people making so much noise
But I can feel the silent unlimited void

You were born a pure white light
All your life, you have been fighting the good fight
Just sit back allow and let it all be
Watch out world we are born free
Watch out world we are born free
