I’m sitting alone in the house I grew up in

I’m sitting alone after all have gone home

I’m sitting alone just me and the mosquitoes

On my parents porch with the music of the night

And this is my favorite time here all by myself
G D/F# Em
So grateful for all I know I have
G D/F# Em
Yes this is my favorite time here all by myself

Still feeling all the love deep inside

Sitting alone, Sitting alone

Sitting alone, sitting alone, sitting alone, sitting alone helps me know

I’m sitting alone in this body I was given

I’m sitting alone with the sun on my face

I’m sitting alone just breathing in the silence

So clear now only love lives in this place

I think I can still feel you
And it makes wonder if I’m not mad
Sometimes I feel you hate me
And that just makes me sad

Cause I’m the girl who wants it to be allright
I’m the girl turning darkness into light
I’m the girl fighting the good fight

It makes me wonder what is real
Is it true our minds make it all up
Cause sometimes the pain I feel
Makes me want to give back this cup

Cause I’m the girl who wants it to be allright
I’m the girl turning darkness into light
I’m the girl fighting the good fight

May we smile, be free and enjoy the ride

Track Name: Better Me
Better Me by Alicia Mathewson

C/G/F/C
If everything happens in the now
I guess I better turn off the TV
I guess I better get up off the couch
Decide who it is I’m gonna be

C/G/F/C
If everything happens from the heart
I guess I better stop thinking so much
Stand up and walk a path of truth
Opening to self love

Am/C/
I guess I better
I guess I better be
I guess I better
I guess I better be
A better me
A better me

If service to Godis service to man
I guess I better get myself a gig
I guess I better open to the plan
With each song my heart gets big
If change is taking us by storm
I guess I better learn to let it go
Stand up and walk a path of love
Trusting in what I now know
I guess I better
I guess I better be
I guess I better
I guess I better be
A better me
Set my spirit free
A better me
Set my spirit free


If everything is gonna fall apart
Guess I better learn to give it up
Guess I better open my heart
Empty so you can fill me up
If everything is gonna fall away
I guess I better stand and be the one
Walk in peace and truth and love
Through me let it be done
I guess I better
I guess I better be
I guess I better
I guess I better be
A better me
Set my spirit free
A better me
Set my spirit free

If everything happens in the now
I guess we better turn off the TV
I guess we better get up off the couch
Decide who it is we want to be
If everything happens from the heart
I guess we better stop thinking so much
Stand up and walk a path of truth
Opening to Self love
I guess we better
I guess we better be
I guess we better
I guess we better be
A better we
Set our spirits free
A better we
Set your spirit free
Set your spirit free
A better we
Track Name: Birds in Barnstable
Birds in Barnstable by Alicia Mathewson ©2012

5:55 am, the sun is peaking through the clouds
and the birds sound like a symphony
coffee strong and hot
grass still wet with dew
I can’t imagine a day more perfect or true
Waking up on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable
The back yard I knew as just a girl
Sitting on the sun porch with the birds in Barnstable
Opening my heart to the world

Let every child know this love
Let every man feel this free
Let every girl rise above
Let every boy be soft and happy
Let every cell regenerate
Like a perfect rising star
Let every heart recreate
The truth of who we are

5:55 pm the sun is falling down the sky
and the birds are falling off to sleep
beer cold and crisp
skin still hot with sun
I can imagine a day more perfect or free
Living life on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable
The ocean I knew as just a girl
Swimming in the harbor with the birds in Barnstable
Opening my heart to the world

Let every child know this love
Let every man feel this free
Let every girl rise above
Let every boy be soft and happy
Let every cell regenerate
Like a perfect rising star
Let every heart recreate
The truth of who we are

And as the salt washes me clean
I remember your face
Thank you mom for how you lived your life
and how you let go with grace
Thank you mom for how you lived your life
and how you let go with grace
5:55 am the sun is peaking through the trees
and the birds sound like a symphony
mother clear and strong conducting now with her light
I can hear her voice perfectly
Letting go on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable
The heart I knew as just a girl
Dancing in the life force with the birds in Barnstable
Opening my heart to the world

Let every child know this love
Let every man feel this free
Let every girl rise above
Let every boy be soft and happy
Let every cell regenerate
Like a perfect rising star
Let every heart recreate
The truth of who we are

Sweet September
Slowly coming on
With your cool brisk air
Rushing through my lungs
Oh Sweet September on Cape Cod
I’m so happy to be home

Sweet September
Clearing all the past fear on out
Rinsing through all That need to leave
There’s no more room no left for doubt
Oh Sweet September on Cape Cod
I’m so happy to be home

And may the seeds I have planted through these years
Grow into trees of joy and love
And as I serve here and now on this native land
May I be all that I am

Sweet September
With your falling leaves and perfect sky
Thank you for showing me
To truly live you have to let yourself die
Oh Sweet September on Cape Cod
I’m so happy to be home

With your fairy eyes and yoru open heart

Cause you know I want to


E A
So here we are in 2012
I can feel the golden age coming through
A time of joy and peace
But you know it’s up to me and you
To always be divine and trust the flow
Listen to yourself deep inside
And believe in what you know singing

A song that goes on singing
Long after these bodies die
A song that goes on singing
Long after these bodies die singing

On the eve of 2012
The children were dancing free
Inside the song I sang
And I can feel you seeing me
I know this place comes and goes
And you want to be there all the time
I promise to support you
As you walk that sacred climb singing

G D E
I will be your fairy queen

A song of true emotion
A song of sweet release
A song from deep inside
and way up high
A song that goes on singing
Long after these bodies die
A song that goes on singing
Long after these bodies die
A song that goes on singing
Track Name: Breathe in, Breathe Out
Breathe in, Breathe out by Alicia Mathewson

Guitar CAPO 2 – so really in key of E

Oooooohm, Ohmmm

D C9 G/B Asus4
(same pattern through whole song)

I am learning how to be a wave and stay in the flow
I am learning how to be brave even when I think I don’t know
D C9
I stand up and I fall down get up again and look around
G/B Asus4
practice trust, feel the doubt I breathe in and I breathe
D C9 G/B Asus4
out I breathe in and I breathe out I breathe
D C9 G/B Asus4
in and I breathe out

I am learning how to be a song and trust in the tune
I am learning how to be weak and strong like the sun and the moon
I stand up and I fall down get up again and look around
Practice trust, feel the doubt I breathe in and I breath out
I breathe in and I breathe out
I breathe in and
I breathe out

Instrumental break

D C9 G/B Asus4
We are all learning how to be a wave and stay in the flow
We are learning how to be brave even when we think we don’t know
we stand up and we fall down get up again and look around
Practice trust, feel the doubt we breathe in and we breath out
I ama you and youa re me we are all burthing a brand new sea
It’s ok to take a break laugh a little while we wake
Dance around like a fool forget everything you elarned in school
Open up and feel what’s true
Breathe out
Breathe in and
Breathe out
Breathe in and
Breathe out
Breathe in and
Breathe out
