Where we stand is now

Standard

Walk with me to the northern light
Where the world tips over the edge
Talk to me, tell me the story
Where we stand is now
The past a memory
Filled with greatness and with sorrow
Let us forget tomorrow
Where we stand is now

We are awake, but are we conscious?
We are alive, but are we alight?
We are stars, but where’s the moon?
We love the light, but does it blind us?
Will we see here?
Where we stand is now

We live and learn and think we know
True greatness knows it does not
So open up, let it go then
Where we stand is now
The past lives on but
It won’t guarantee future respect
Life remains a balancing act
Where we stand is now

We are awake, but are we conscious?
We are alive, but are we alight?
We are stars, but where’s the moon?
We love the light, but does it blind us?
Will we see here?
Where we stand is now

What is the fabric of the legend?
Sown into the silver seam of light
To believe I am possible
Where we stand is now
It might might spark off soon
Time synchronized before it went
I pray that it was well spent
Where we stand is now

Here and now
We live here and now
Don’t look back
Tomorrow’s a mystery
Here, In the moment
There is only here and now

We are awake, but are we conscious?
We are alive, but are we alight?
We are stars, but where’s the moon?
We love the light, but does it blind us?
Will we see here?
Where we stand is now

Sacred Space

Standard

In an eb and flow
The tide dances it’s dance
We are moving
Taking steps
Not near yet never far
Waiting for chance

Somewhere we collide
That is the sacred space
Devoid of time and place
Where that silent whisper
Is the voice that lights the way

As fire scorches earth
The ground makes it all grow
Come to the fire
Igniting flames
Not near yet never far
Touching the glow

Somewhere we collide
That is the sacred space
Devoid of time and place
Where that silent whisper
Is the voice that lights the way

A magic mystery
That  little corner deep inside
Where I belong
Feeling reborn
Not near yet never far
It’s where you hide

Somewhere we collide
That is the sacred space
Devoid of time and place
Where that silent whisper
Is the voice that lights the way

We will ignite, face the fight
We will talk, meet the night
We will walk, rule the light
We will be

There in the sacred space
Devoid of time and place
Where we let that silent whisper
Become the voice that lights the way

Somewhere we collide
That is the sacred space
Devoid of time and place
Where that silent whisper
Is the voice that lights the way
