Lotus

from by Casey Stratton

lyrics

I coiled around a dream
I didn’t have to hold back anything
The flame of lotus centering, it calmed me
So then I asked myself
What I wanted from NOW and here on out
The answer came in clearly from my tuning

Won’t talk myself out of
Connecting with sound
No use in muting this

I never knew the sunlight
Certainly not this bright
Life had clicked, but not like this
So can I make the ocean
Pull me forth in motion?
Take this bliss and expand all this

From the murky depths
I emerged as red petals, open then
I had acknowledged all that needed to be said

I made my way through midnight
Found a love for daylight
Something came and took me away

I never knew the sunlight
Certainly not this bright
Life had clicked, but not like this
So can I make the ocean
Pull me forth in motion?
Take this bliss and expand all this

Reborn 
Reset
Regained full strength 

I never knew the sunlight
Certainly not this bright
Life had clicked, but not like this
So can I make the ocean
Pull me forth in motion?
Take this bliss and expand all this
