Sea Into Sky

1.
Beneath the Waves Undine, unseen undersea, in the deep Miles of blue, moving through Cerulean blue, light in view Are we free? Come with me We will be eternity Horizonless, fathomless Cosmically blessed We fluoresce We let go, a streamline flow Celestial show, just then, we know Unresigned, inhabit design All is aligned - let it shine
2.
Love Is Love 04:44
Love is Love Wake up - you're running late Your evolution will not wait Shake up those old beliefs Humanity leans toward what's free Tell me what makes the heart Reach out toward the sun and start Feeling for another heart It is the same whoever we are What goes around, it comes around We're gaining ground Like the winter into spring, enter our hope And love is love, enough's enough Let's stay above That hard line that separates the hate from us Make up those angry lies They will not poison every mind Allies with hand in hand So many who understand Love is love, enough's enough

Mountain 05:19
Mountain I climbed up the mountain I never expected what Became of the ground then All cracks and a shattered soul, I cried How I cried Then came the time To simply fall with the landslide Find my way to the other side Find my life in the wreckage of this Push aside some of this Look for signs and move toward the light When everything seems too loud When everything crashes down I must find a way out And so if there is even a spark I will move through the dark Full speed ahead toward the stars Full speed toward all that we are When I came down the mountain It was not just an easy ride One foot, then the other Til the ground on the other side, I tried Oh how I tried To move with time To simply take on the daylight I was never one for the sun I can ride every shadow into the abyss So good at this But I resist it and move toward the light Maybe I can save me I can stay me I can begin again

Luna 04:28
Luna Are you Lonely? Are you lost from me? There on the moon I call you I won't forget you I stay by your side Can you hear me? Can you hear me? I am calling you... Open your eyes See mine There by your side There by your side Never lost Never lost Never lost There on the moon There on the moon I see you I see you I miss you
5.
Nightingales 04:20
Nightingales A Journey brought me here Underneath a tree of song Often lost and unsure But inside I knew all along That I'd bring you what you need To find your own song to sing I take you under my wing I never knew how much Reward would come my way Lift you up to the stars And watch you fly toward day In the darkness where I lived I never expected this All that I could have missed I watch you take each step From one challenge to the next Sometimes not quite sure But still you do your best All we ask from ourselves is that We pursue that connection with light In the end you will be all right One day I’ll look back at this And know I was meant for it Made for this One with this
6.
Grace 06:20
Grace You showed up just in time When I needed so much I took it as a sign It was more than just luck And I knew you were mine When I saw in your eyes Understanding and hope You and me, both When you entered my life So soon after a loss Wasn't sure I could find A path back to love But in seconds I saw It was there all along So I opened my heart It was only the start Now I've seen grace In the dark and the light In the right place  At the right time I had lost all my hope When I lost those three souls Until fate came again Put the moon in my hand For all that I know Those before had a role And they sent you to me Saw what I couldn't see Such a shift toward such change Not as painful this time But a whirlwind no less I held on for dear life But I stayed on the path With machete in hand Cleared the way for the truth To offer me proof I should not have been so surprised I always keep my heart tuned for signs A frequency I never lost in my life

Mirrors 04:51
Mirrors OM BHUR BHUVAH SVAH TAT  SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGO DEVASYA DHIMAHI DHIYO YONAH PRACHADAYAT You are not, you are not a single you You are a sky and an ocean A tremendous YHUUUUUU A nine hundred times huge Drowning place for all your hundreds of you's
8.
Glow 04:55
Glow Only when I breathed again Only then could I understand Storms pretend to be the end And it feels so real right then But you hold on I held onto life And the glow came back  When I was ready to shine Years of pain in a dark, cold cave Rode the wind as it called your names And I held on I was lost but I sent out sound And the moon came back  When I was ready for "now" Go on - there is nothing to hold me back I can slow down - the gravity takes me back to the ground Lost in our sound I told myself I would find a way To make a life where I could say That I'd moved on But it holds all our memories And the story came back When I was ready to write
9.
Open Into Light When it closes You must open Speak in truth and light will come to you Dream in worlds where dreams would also dream With acceptance come a chance to begin Walk the path and Open into light Colors vibrant, bright A single gift of sight Is all you need to fight Open into light Offer what you thought you could not give Place your hands upon the edge of night Feel that darkness, understand its song Walk the path and open into light... Where in the clouds are you coming up now? In the back of the mind is silence Everything you seek is a part of you In the deep, in the far, is a falling star
10.
Cimmerian Darkness When the black descended like a cloak In the bleakness, living without hope In a world at the edge of darkness Filled with loss upon loss upon loss How much can be taken? Left destroyed and broken Lying with no sound, no light, aching all the time (Time) with darkness pulling down Trying to move through black and murky ground Push against the sorrow and the pain But they control everything The only way out is through Guarded my hope like a most valuable clue Waited for the smallest Inkling of a sunrise Living without sound or light, broken all the time Feel the cold, black rain Sinking your stones, filled with pain Feel the harsh, desperate cries Moving through all these goodbyes
11.
Distant Call 06:22
Distant Call When we wait too long for fortune, for fate To shine on this place too much is lost on the way So reach out - the wind won't let you fall We are one, we are all Hear the distant call All these ways we can lose our sense of ourselves There will be dark days, but they won't be all that we are Mark this place If I circle back again I will know where I am And how to move ahead How to move again
12.
In the Sky 05:09
In the Sky As light begins to shine Pink in the eastern sky You are on my mind Though far away, I won't let go Silver cord from soul to soul When you left I couldn't hold sorrow back I could not find my strength And everything went black But time brought peace back to my life It will never be goodbye I will find you in the sky When grace decided to return I grabbed what I could hold And I would not dare let go Somehow I found a way back to light I feel you all the time But it aches so much less inside I can find you I can always find you I can always find you...
