Track Name: The Promise Of Beauty
THE PROMISE OF BEAUTY

Do you really love me
Or is it just that you need
All I have to give you?

Did you really mean it
When you said that you wanted
To live for Truth and be my Queen?

But if those were just empty words
Then darlin’ I’d prefer
For you to set me free.
Set me free.

Cause I don’t need another broken heart
I’d rather know for sure
And let this go before it starts.
Why bleed from picking up a rose
When I can clearly see
The thorns hidden underneath?
The promise of beauty.
The promise of beauty.
The promise…

Can you really hold me
When I’m the one in pain
And I just need a place, a place to rest?

Do you have the space
For me to come undone and be a mess
Or is that too much to ask?

Cause If it feels like trying
Then if you wouldn’t mind
Please just let me be.
Oh just let me be.

I can’t take another broken word
I’d rather be alone
Better on my own before I heard
Vows made like falling drops of rain
Blue skies that turn to gray clouds
In puddles on the ground.

The promise of beauty.
The promise of beauty.
The promise…
Track Name: Her
HER

I’ve seen the ocean in Her eyes
Deep mystery, clear, no disguise
I’ve heard Her whisper with the trees
Voice of an angel, pure and free.

I’ve watched walls crumble when she smiles
Under Her gaze, Her healing touch
Like a light shone on what darkness hides
In Her Presence, there’s only Love.

Once upon a Blue Moon
Way up in the summer sky
There we were, just Me and her
Reunited in perfect time

And now there’s nothing more
She needs to do
To keep me Loving Her
The whole way through

I’ve known her for a thousand lifetimes
No space between Her Heart and Mine.
And when she calls for me I’ve seen
How Mother Nature offers me Her streams.

Once upon a Blue Moon
With the tides rising high
There we were, just Me and Her
Reunited in perfect time.

And now there’s nothing more
She needs to do
To keep me Loving Her
The whole way through

Once upon a Blue Moon
Way up in the summer sky
There we were, just Me and her
Reunited in perfect time

And now there’s nothing more
She needs to do
To keep me Loving Her
The whole way through
Track Name: Dance All Night
DANCE ALL NIGHT

Move your body, shake it.
Shake it all around.
It’s time to get on up,
Yeah, it’s time to get on down.

Let yourself get lifted.
Let go of control.
Feel it in your heart.
You can feel it in your soul.

Come on, move yourself,
Dance all night.
All night.
Move yourself,
Dance all night.
All night.

Music is the secret.
The secret’s comin’ out.
When people get together
And start screaming it out loud.

Mountains will be shaken
Oceans overflow’n.
Walls will crumble down
As the Universe unfolds.

Move yourself
Dance all night
All night
Move yourself
Dance all night
All night

Let the sound flow through you
Like electricity
Get grounded in the groove now
And set your spirit free

Come on, move yourself
Dance all night
All night
Move yourself
Dance all night
All night


Come on dance…all night.
All night
Track Name: Gone
GONE

I don’t know when i’ll get
The chance again
So i’ll live this moment
Like it could be my last

I know that it’s not always easy
To tell the Truth
But it’s easier than living a lie
I know that it’s not always fair
The way things work out
But you’ll never know if you don’t try

So…
I don’t wanna wait too long
Cause it’ll be too late when I’m gone
Come on, let’s not wait too long
Cause it’ll be too late when we’re gone

Gone...Gone
Gone...Gone

I know that it can be hard to find
The right moment
To speak your mind, your mind
But I can’t think of anything worse
Than running out of time, out of time

So…

I’m not gonna wait too long
Cause it’ll be too late when I’m gone
Come on, let’s not wait too long
Cause it’ll be too late when we’re gone

Gone...Gone
Gone...Gone
Track Name: You Are
YOU ARE

I can tell by the look in your eyes
That you don't want to be here.
When I look deep into your heart
There's a sadness I can feel.
A pain that's made of memories
And stories you've been telling a long time.

I’m like an angel come to set you free,
If you can't see with your eyes,
Look with mine
And you'll find...
You are here for a reason.
You are one of a kind.
You are here for a reason
Like a snowflake, like a sunflower, like a season.
Beyond space...
Beyond time...

I can hear the words you’re speaking
Reminding me what’s real.
But all the voices in my head
Keep me numb so I won’t feel
This pain that’s made of memories
And stories I’ve believed in a long time
I wish I could see what others see
I wish the voice of reason was mine
And I’d find…

You are here for a reason.
You are one of a kind.
You are here for a reason.
You are the brightest light.
Full of colour, full of beauty, full of wonder.
Beyond space...
Beyond time...


I know the Truth of who You Are,
I've known it all along.
And even when you can't feel it
The knowing's never gone.
Through the pain and memories
There's a new story to write
About the You you've always been
And the Truth hidden deep inside.
You're Divine...

You are here for a reason.
You are one of a kind.
You are here for a reason.
You are the brightest light.
Full of colour, full of beauty, full of wonder.
Like a snowflake, like a sunflower, like a season.
Beyond space...
Beyond time...
Beyond space...
Beyond time...
