So I do

Standard

A proposal
Not to have or hold
Without the ring
But for your finger
Pointing at me
And what’s within

I have waited
Walked the earth
Only to discover
It’s not anywhere
It’s not out there
But here with you
So I do

A proposal
The end to searching
Together strong
As with the seasons
Through all of time
Here I belong

A proposal
Not to claim or posess
Without condition
As love is boundless
We’re falling free
Apart but one

Free of time

Standard

From when time began
With first light of sun
In beams of gold
Our story could unfold
Divided to unite
We shine our light

Eternity ever sends
Us upon a road that bends
I can’t see where it ends
But I know and I will find
In one moment free of time
You are mine

Opposites attract
And atoms will react
Across the eons
Purpose to frictions
Within your heart
Our tale will start

Eternity ever sends
Us upon a road that bends
We can’t see where it ends
But we know and we will find
In one moment free of time
You are mine

At the end of our time
We will see the sign
And stand tall
Straight through it all
Travel to the light
We will find inside

Future and history
Forever to be
Souls embrace
No time or space
Never gone
Always one

Colours of time

Standard

Where am I to go
Am I safe enough to know
My own world of beauty inside
Is the sight of truth
While the outlook is just bleak
What am I to do
I’m slowly drowning in the blue

I wish you could see
All those colours that I see
I can show them, but you don’t see me
I turn to you, but you turn away
And I can’t speak, I can’t say
Look at the harvest of time
The pain of the past we all keep recreating 

When will you listen, why can’t you hear
The message of love instead of fear

Tiny moments in time
When we seem to get it right
And in our universe we collide
So we can run free
Until the cold wind of change
Brings the icy snow
The white replaces warmth of yellow 

I wish you could see
A
ll those colours that I see
I can show them, but you don’t see me
I turn to you, but you turn away
And I can’t speak, I can’t say
Look at the harvest of time
The pain of the past we all keep recreating 

When will you listen, why can’t you hear
The message of love instead of fear 

The people I meet
Are not getting me I’m sure
They just see the crippled outside
Of the heart that loves
Despite the cruelty of the world
Wonder can be seen
In flowers growing from the green 

I wish you could see
All those colours that I see
I can show them, but you don’t see me
I turn to you, but you turn away
And I can’t speak, I can’t say
Look at the harvest of time
The pain of the past we all keep recreating

 When will you listen, why can’t you hear
The message of love instead of fear

What I will give
Might never survive it’s birth
Still I will see its creation through
And give my soul to you
Until there’s no more left to give
When love is dead
I will surrender to the red

I wish you could see
All those colours that I see
I can show them, but you don’t see me
I turn to you, but you turn away
And I can’t speak, I can’t say
Look at the harvest of time
The pain of the past we all keep recreating

You might never listen, so you won’t hear
My message is love instead of fear 

Game of the name

Standard

What is in a name?
Is it all in the game?
Will it change you?
Does it point to?
Like a lighthouse
Beacon in the night
Calling out a light

What is in a name?
Is it just a game?
Could it move you?
Will it point to?
Like a lighthouse
Beacon in the night
Calling out a light

Listen on Soundcloud: The game of the name (improvisation):

Quintessence

Standard

As below us we perceive
Small matter
Above it’s us they see
The question mark of
Dark matter
Energy set free

Quintessence
One but divided
Balancing apart
A stellar team
To see or seem
Quintessence

How do we make a mark
To matter
Where are we meant to be
Existential proof of
Soul matter
Parallel frequency

Quintessence
One but divided
Balancing apart
A stellar team
To see or seem
Quintessence

And the universe expands
No matter
What we are able to see
Overtaken by this
Sad matter
Mutual dependency

  You and I
  And they are made of
  Stardust reincarnated
  This carbon inside me
  Was once the heart of you

Quintessence
One but divided
Balancing apart
A stellar team
To see or seem
Quintessence

Weighing me down

Standard

Ominous trees, their branches cut
Decorate a sky of grey
I could cry out my sorrow, but
No rain, no rain today

This is weighing me down
So hard
So long
This has been weighing me down
Strength so great
Still not enough
This has been weighing me down

My wings are clipped like the trees
Dead in my tracks mid flight
I will pray down on my knees
Can’t win, can’t win this fight

This is weighing me down
So hard
So long
This has been weighing me down
Strength so great
Still not enough
This has been weighing me down

I’m so tired now
But there’s no sleep
Lost in my mind
Where the worries creep

Then darkness lifts time and again
It’s myself I always cheat
The spark is there deep down below
Must turn, must turn defeat

This is weighing me down
So hard
So long
This has been weighing me down
Strength so great
Still not enough
This has been weighing me down

Your shore

Standard

Somewhere three lands meet
In one point far out there on the sea
A strange little line
That borders the soul of me

I am sinking
I am sinking
And it is slowly sinking in
That all I have been thinking
Sends me crashing upon your shore

The rich multitude of potency
In that  delusion of our time
That rare occurrence
When all planets are aligned

I am sinking
I am sinking
And it is slowly sinking in
That all I have been thinking
Sends me crashing upon your shore

With three steps are we connected
Like water rippled by the stone
All is  but one part
We play together alone

I am sinking
I am sinking
And it is slowly sinking in
That all I have been thinking
Sends me crashing upon your shore
