Belonging Song Lyrics

April Morning 

It’s been the hardest year we’ve known 

We’ve never felt so alone 

In a haze of days repeating 

one after another 

trying to keep our spirits high 

Doing what we have to to get by 

Trying our best to look out for each other 

Hearts breaking every day, feeling  swept away 

Wading in an endless stream of sorrow 

seems like it will never end 

it’s driving us around the bend 

each day we wake up praying for tomorrow 

But today I rose up early 

to a choir of robin’s singing 

and blazing trees with blossoms all adorning 

Jasmine in the air, buzzing everywhere 

I think we’re gonna make it through on this April morning 

Chorus 

Oh the light is here at last 

Maybe the darkest days have passed 

feels like a better day is dawning 

I think we’re gonna make it through on this april morning 

 

We shut the party down 

but the world kept spinning round 

And life has waited patiently to meet us 

I hope that we have changed 

That we’ll  never be the same 

When the new day rises up again to greet us 

I know i’ll see you soon 

September if not in June 

I close my eyes, I can see your smile forming 

Can’t wait to hold you close 

it’s what i wanna do the most 

I think we’re gonna make it through on  this April Morning 

Chorus 

One Breath

 Where are you now, I’ve come to find you 

To wake you slowly, gently remind you 

A ringing bell, a flickering light 

growing brighter in the night 

One breath, one breath at a time 

One breath, one breath, one breath at a time 

One breath, one breath at a time 

When you are lost on the rocky sea 

battered by the rising tide 

I’ll be the light to guide you home 

Safely to the other side 

One breath, one breath at a time 

One breath, one breath, one breath at a time 

One breath, one breath at a time 

In the silent dawn I will speak your name 

When this world is gone, tell me what will remain? 

Your’e the sky that holds the moon that wanes 

the tumbling stars, the falling rain 

One breath, one breath  at a time 

One breath, one breath, one breath at a time 

One breath, one breath at a time

 

Primrose Light 

There’s not much news that’s good if you can find good news at all Some say the world is slowly dying or maybe fasterAnd most mornings I awaken with a worry in my bones 
for the child of my heart 
and what’ll come after 

And I don’t know if our human story 
is coming to a close 
And if we are living out our final days 
But don’t fill my ears with tales of fear or schemes to hide away No I want to go out singing songs of praise 

And here’s where you’ll find me 
On the longest day in June 
When the sun drapes the world in robes of glory Raise a golden hallelujah to the blazing of the night I’m gliding on a lake of sky 
In the Primrose light. 

It’s true I’m  growing older 
Seems everywhere I turn 
Another friend is walking though their final days When my number’s called 
and I join them on that road 
I want to go out singing songs of praise 

And here’s where you’ll find me 
On the longest day in June 
When the sun drapes the world in robes of glory Raise a golden hallelujah to the blazing of the night I’m gliding on a lake of sky 
In the Primrose light. 2x chorus 

I’m gliding on a lake of sky, I am gliding on a lake of sky, I’m gliding on a lake of sky in the Primrose light

Fall in Love

 The fog is slowly lifting, rolling out over the bay 

Another Sunday morning out walking these blues away 

I  turn the phone to silent, watching the kites take flight 

A sky of dancing dragons, glitter in the light 

I’m tired of being alone 

I’m of being a slave to this mobile phone 

I’m tired of the pull, I’m tired of the shove 

I’m ready to fall in love 

Maybe with you, maybe not 

Maybe with everything I’ve already got 

Like  a flower reaching for the sun above 

I’m ready to fall in love 

It’s been a tough time, it’s been a rough time 

For almost everyone that I know 

The forces of darkness moving towards us 

I fear it’s spinning out of control 

And i’ve been angry, for good reason too 

I  know  I don’t have to explain it to you 

But we all need a break, we’ve all had enough 

I’m ready to fall in love 

Maybe with you, maybe not 

Maybe with everything I’ve already got 

Like  a flower turning to the sun above 

I’m ready to fall in love

 

Gone Beyond

 I can’t say I was looking 

the moment that it found me 

It was springtime in the mountains in the mountains 

and everything around me 

was ringing with a silence 

like i have never heard 

my mind dissolving in the light 

and I cannot find the words. 

Gone gone gone beyond  

Everything I know 

Gone gone gone beyond 

dissolving like the April snow 

A painting formed in grains of sand 

Gone gone beyond 

Swept away by empty hands    

Gone gone beyond 

Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha 

All the ways I think of you 

Gone gone beyond 

Only clouds just passing through 

Gone gone beyond 

No more future, no more past 

Gone gone beyond 

Waves of wind in blades of grass 

Gone gone beyond 

Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha 

Gone is birth and gone is death 

Gone gone beyond 

Fading in a single breath 

gone gone beyond 

Gone gone gone beyond 

everything i know 

Gone gone gone beyond 

dissolving like the April snow…. 

Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svada 

Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svada

 

Paris in the Rain

 I wake up early to Paris in the rain 

Just around the corner from Rue St Germaine 

35 years I still see us in that square 

Me the girl with the long tangled hair 

Harmonica wailing a Neil Young tune 

About a town in Ontario with a yellow moon 

Playing for coins and the kids keeping time 

As you counted the money and ordered the wine. 

You never came home, you ran as far as you could go 

Far from your mother and the grey suburban snow 

Me I was burning with the music in my heart 

shot me off flying like a comet through the dark 

So many seasons come and gone 

I’ve landed here again 

Waking up early to paris in the rain 

La la la.. 

 The bells of our lady are ringing in the night 

Remember how we’d pray she’s show us wrong from right 

We were 2 catholic girls determined to fly 

tethered to angels that were blocking the sky 

I met you at 13, loved you at 17 

Lost you at 20 and hardly saw you again 

I kicked  all that guilt and I was never the same 

And you boarded that train from Paris  in the rain 

La la la… 

There’s a peace  that is growing with the passing of time 

The travel is kinder, the linen more fine 

They’re calling me madam as I’m showing my age 

At least no cat-calling men are inciting my rage 

but no sweet smiling girls are turning their heads 

And I’m sleeping alone in a queen hotel bed 

Everything sounds better in en Frencaise it’s true 

I’m practicing my lines for some future  rendez-vous 

I’ve nothing to prove and not much left to gain 

Just reflections in the water and  Paris in the rain 

La la la la…

She Carries Me

 She is a boat, she is a light 

High on a hill, in dark of night 

She is a wave she is the deep 

She is the dark where angels sleep 

When all is still and peace abides 

She Carries me, to the other side 

She Carries me, She Carries me 

She Carries me to the other side 

And though I walk through valleys deep 

And shadows chase me in my sleep 

On rocky cliffs I stand alone 

I have no name, I have no home 

With broken wings I reach to fly 

She carries me to the other side 

She carries me… 

A thousand arms, a thousand eyes 

A thousand ears, to hear my cries 

She is the gate, she is the door 

She leads me thought and back once more 

When day has dawned  and death is nigh 

She’ll carry me to the other side 

She carries me… 

She is the first, She is the last 

She is future, and the past 

Mother of all, of earth and sky 

She carries me to the other side 

She carries me…

Plant a Tree

 

Plant a Tree 

What then can we do, there’s nowhere else to go 

The warming of the oceans, the melting of the snow. 

Born into this world, amazed you fall in love. 

With sky and rain and sunset 

And Crystal stars above 

And every living creature from the time you are a child 

Fills your heart with gladness and weds you to the wild. 

But the nightmare now upon us. 

With every passing day. 

The news of our demise in more terrifying ways. 

What then can we do as grief rises like the sea. 

Honor everything you love. 

Plant a tree, tend a flower, rock the babies write a song 

If we only have an hour to this earth we will belong 

though your heart be torn with sorrow and hope holds no guarantee 

There’s no promise of tomorrow. 

Plant a tree….  

Every new invention designed to hypnotize 

Create another billionaire and keep us mesmerized 

The titanic’s set on sinking we’re all heading far below 

It’s tempting to just go drinking or stream another show. 

All the prayers and incantations we hold so very dear 

Can’t fix what we have broken or beam us on out of here. 

But oh I will worship the final blade of grass 

Bow down in gratitude for every life that’s passed. 

I’ll love the light upon this world for all eternity 

And when my life is over 

Plant a tree, tend a flower, rock the babies right a song 

If we only have an hour to this earth we will belong 

though your heart be torn with sorrow and hope holds no guarantee 

There’s no promise of tomorrow.

Plant a tree...

Go in Peace (by Sam Baker)

Go in peace, go in kindness 

Go in love go in faith 

Leave the day, the day behind us 

Day is done go in grace 

Let us go into the dark 

Not afraid, not alone 

Let us hope by some good pleasure 

Safely to arrive at home
