Cedar Tree 06:10
Get inside are you ready for the storm What do you embrace? What keeps you warm? Do you hear your heart beating over the alarm? Have you caught a glimpse of what is taking form? You go from solid ground To being lost at sea Your candle can’t keep burning When it’s adding to the breeze How will you find your heart if you never find your knees When you remember where you’re from You’ll remember how to dream Faster now, do you feel it in your bones? They hold more wisdom than most will ever know 10,000 years and what do we have to show The medicine you seek emerges very Slow down Try to relax now You can always change your mind Back to the races what is it your tasting? Can you tell the difference as you stumble through your haste now? If you forgive them you will have to find a way To honor grief for what was lost that day You go from solid ground to being lost at sea Your candle can’t keep burning When you’re adding to the breeze How can you find your heart If you never find your knees When you remember where you’re from You’ll remember how to dream When will it stop this obsession with the top? This religion of worshiping everything you’re not This industry of manufactured false gods Will only serves to emphasize all that has been lost You go from solid ground to being lost at sea Your candle can’t keep burning When you’re adding to the breeze How can you find your heart if you never find your knees When you remember where you’re from You’ll remember how to dream I offer this simple prayer Patience please Patience please Like a cedar tree Let me be Ever green Ever loving When the wild wind blows I am always home As my soul embodies this skin and bones As my heart roots down The higher my spirit grows In life and death We are held through this Through the fall of pain and springs of bliss Forever in service to the infinite So keep my heart beating strong As I make my way home As we remember the most ancient of songs When you hear my call Won’t you respond It goes heyayayaya Heyayayaya Heyayayaya It goes heyayayaya Heyayayaya Heyayayaya So just slow down No need to rush to now You can always change your mind Just slow down Try to relax now You’ve arrived right on time

Let It Go 05:09
I love you from the rainforest as you’re burning down the trees What do you imagine you will find when you have everything you think you need What will there be space to hear once you’ve cut the forest down and clear What will there be space to do when the only tree left standin there... Is you? If you could hear the chords that play between my mind and heart… Soon you’d come to realize that you and I are not so far apart When your axe is at its sharpest, it’s time to lay it down This is always the hardest part, so let’s practice right here, right now And let the peace that radiates from somewhere deep within Welcome the deepest healing right beneath the skin If you’re losing track, then let it go, steady as she goes For what is true always returns with something new to grow Laying this down is sacred work of which there is no lack If you’re wondering where to start, then start by giving back And remember to give forward too, two parts for unborn hearts So the sky they play under will dream of you for remembering your part As the most sacred of geometry begins to constellate your heart In the puddles of the ancient days Where I kneeled to wash my face I heart my grandfather say, “where there is wonder, there is a way Where there is wonder there is a way, where there is wonder... there is a way”

There is a place where the road comes to an end More or less two blocks from my Bellingham friends If you are wondering, she’ll welcome you in And offer a place to begin again Where cedar meets the coast you will hear the hymn Karate church singing revolution In a world gone mad, we have grabbed that hatter’s brim And tipped it back to people over profit There are days when I wonder If we’ll ever get it right For what I’ve seen has left me reeling On too many sleepless nights And I have been lost in the darkness Just reaching out for the light If what you feed is feeding on you How will you ever win that fight? One strike of lightning will change a tiger’s stripes That’s how the leopard came to be one stormy night The sound of thunder lands so easy in my soul Reminding me that we are never in control So I’ll count my blessings until the day I let 'em go At which point they will be part of my soul May what I leave behind bring you closer to Truth For once you’ve seen it, there’s nothing else to do For once you’ve seen it, there’s nothing else to do There are days when I wonder If we’ll ever get it right For what I’ve seen has left me reeling On too many sleepless nights And I have been lost in the darkness Just reaching out for the light If what you feed is feeding on you How will you ever free your mind? There are days when I wonder If we’ll ever get it right For what I’ve seen has left me reeling On too many sleepless nights And I have been lost in the darkness Just reaching out for the light If what you feed is feeding on you How will you ever free your mind? Oh I have been lost in the darkness Just reaching out for the light If what you feed is feeding on you How will you ever free your mind? How will you ever free your mind? How will you ever free your mind?

Tides 04:16
It is an art to shape a future from the past With change being all that’s ever meant to last Please slow it down, why do we have to so fast? I don’t the reason so I’ll rhyme until you laugh Another verse let’s break an ancient curse Can you find kindness even when it hurts? Explore the stars of you inner universe And heal the land before you land up in a hearse As we wade through tides of mystery and doubt Learning from all of our mistakes We keep on risking it all to find out You’ve always got what it takes I hear you call my name it’s like heaven remembers my name And i know that nothin will ever be the same And you call it’s like heaven remembers my name And i know that nothin will ever be the same… So i begin again…

Soul Bones 03:24
She asked, “Honey how does it look for us? We’re going to have to wait awhile...” I said, “Darlin’, there really is no rush Our love is never going out of style...” On the 362nd day of my 35th year’s 19th and ½ hour We took a chance on divine romance And surrendered to that ancient power I know we weren’t looking But look what we’ve found I swear I hear heaven In your laughter’s sound And this might sound crazy So let’s keep our feet on the ground It feel likes home So let’s take it slow She asked me, “how do you know?” I don’t I feel it in my soul bones My soul bones I know we weren’t looking But look what we’ve found I swear I hear heaven In your laughter’s sound And this might sound crazy So let’s keep our feet on the ground It feel likes home So let’s take it slow She asked me, “how do you know?” It’s real I feel it in my soul bones My soul bones I said, “Darlin’, there really is no rush Love is never going out of style...” She asked, “Honey, this will be good for us We can wait just a little while...” I said, “Darlin’, there really is no rush Love is never going out of style...”

A betrayal of the self hurts the worst It’s an empty canteen when you’re dying of thirst The desert keeps going How will I know what I’m knowing? When these shackles were locked with my own fists For the children of trauma it never adds up She gave it her best shot It wasn’t enough You asked how it is Well the truth is It’s fucked My anger distilled into rage Put it on a top shelf From her sons it’d be safe But the day that they drank it I just couldn’t take it And I turned and I walked away But there was really nowhere left to go So I wondered for miles Getting drinks with fake smiles Til it was finally my time to go home When I walked through the door Sure I'd been here before There was a pain that had been building awhile None of this really makes sense How will I ever make peace between my heart And what’s left of the lies holding on by a thread? So I pulled out my blue pocket knife To keep a promise to slice all this shit from life If it leaves me half dead I sleep until noon again It’s expensive and I pay the price Oh, It’s expensive and I pay the price And right now, I’m running on empty Only the flame of this anger burns hot And the haunts of old stories Still taunt me with glory Of what I might have been If I joined them again Of what I might have been But I’m not Of what I might have been But I’m not Where is the road I am walking Ever going to lead? If I don’t stand my ground and heal these wounds right now My heart will beat me to death where I bleed And what is the song I will sing? Broke my rose colored lenses Set fire to the fences And from here this is all I can see Oh from here this all I can see And right now, I’m running on empty Only the flame of this anger burns hot And the haunts of old stories Still taunt me with glory Of what I might have been If I joined them again Of what I might have been But I’m not Of what I might have been But I’m not And what is the song I will sing? Broke my rose colored lenses Set fire to the fences And from here this is all I can see Oh from here this all I can see Oh from here this all I can see

Sometimes 08:01
Curiosity crept up Caught this cat by the scruff of his neck Just couldn’t resist what was coming next So let’s wait and see what tomorrow bring It’s not wise to rush most things You can be hungry for All of life and so much more And not let it all walk right through your door Trust is earned by showing You can tend a heart with devotion Even in these stormy seas The whale song starts to open Echoing across the ocean Rising up to set your spirit free So what will we become While we’re dreaming up Everything under the sun? I believe in love That’s how I fill my cup When it all comes undone Sometimes I’m ahead Somedays I fall behind But when I take a breath I realize There are ups and downs And you’ll get dizzy with the round and round If you think you always have to be right Sometimes there’s a voice that’s saying “You better keep on trying” But I would just rather do Not 2nd guess Don’t question how I got here Just offer all that I am to you There are some who want to know Know it all before it happens And some pretend that the whole thing never did There are those you can’t tell anything to It’s gotta be such a hard way to live So what will we become While we’re dreaming up Everything under the sun? I believe in love, that’s how I fill my cup when it all comes undone Sometimes I’m falling Sometimes, I can fly Sometimes I get lost in the beauty of this life And that’s alright now I long for days, with nothing on my mind Those are such peaceful times No reasons, no wrong turns and the best news ever It doesn’t even have to rhyme Seems like despair is over there In the wings waiting To compare my victories to my defeats If I can nip that flower it it’s bud I can skip that whole ugly scene I find contentment in simple things like Love, land, and family I came to realize, when the heart is good You don’t always have to agree So what will we become While we’re dreaming up Everything under the sun? I believe in love That’s how I fill my cup When it all comes undone Sometimes I’m falling Sometimes I can fly Sometimes I get lost in the beauty of this life Sometimes, sometimes I’m falling And sometimes I can fly Sometimes I get lost in the beauty of this life

For You 05:58
Whether you know it or not The sun burning so bright and hot In the sky so high up above you and I Well it shines for you It’s been rising shining, turning, burning, yearning Ensuring everything was perfect to get you here Oh thank God you’re here Species evolved left their flippers for feet Some found their wings Dropped the T and meiosis found love and made love Birthed you to be so brilliantly Civilizations arose and tumbled in ruin Wait a minute now Do you know what you’re doing? Even life itself formed from a soup to be served to you And now we chase the sun as it flies in the sky With that bright horizon wide smile There’s no need here for force Just joy in the dawning Of another beautiful day hey hey hey hey hey You are the air filling these lungs The sweetness dancing on my tongue Love keep leaping Pease, keep this heart beating You are Joy out for a stroll Laughing at all of the control Complexes we ring our own necks with So Let’s watch our dreams come true Cause they don’t know what else to do I mean c'mon What else on this Earth would they be for? Well, the sun’s been shining down In anticipation every moment for an eternity Just waiting Everyday for all of life burning warm and bright Giving us reasons to dance through every day and night In dancing music sings in ears and hearts Knowing each note is perfectly playing it’s part Plants drinks sips of sunlight from lips of leaves And blossom into the most beautiful things An eye has ever seen so in sights sweet gift As they bloom As the sun shines for you to see More than seeing it’s the feeling allowing Love to stand and handstand while we all still can And feel good, like always knew we woohoohood You are the air filling these lungs The sweetness dancing on my tongue Love keep leaping Please, keep this heart beating You are, joy out for a stroll Laughing at all of the control complexes We ring our own necks with So… let’s watch our dreams come true Cause they don’t know what else to do I mean c'mon, what else on this Earth would they be for? Someday you’ll be gone and we’ll say goodbye When I feel this I hang my head and cry The sun will no longer shine on Though the sun Oh the sun In wherever you go Or whatever you do become Oh the sun still shines for you Remembering you Yeah The magic you do Right until those last 2 particles of hydrogen fuse Having a reason to rise, a reason to shine A reason to fall and a reason to fly Towards its own super nova Yeah, you caused a glorious super nova And the passion you inspire In this place called existence The perfection of every instance we call life Brighten from a cosmic muse The sun always shines The sun always shines The sun always shines for you The sun always shines The sun always shines The sun always shines for you The sun always shines The sun always shines The sun always shines Always will forever shine Until there are no more song lines Until the very end of time The sun always shines for you

Today 04:31
Step outside of your comfort zone You are thousands of miles from your home Keep breathing deeper now to warm your bones Go on now leave well enough alone There will come a day when joy replaces your pain It could be tomorrow or maybe it could be… Today Right now how can this be real Your mouth stays silent as your spirit starts to squeal The waving ocean roars as you reveal The broken pieces are washed and start to heal You don’t have to tell me what you find What are you weaving where are you intertwined? What is the spell that frees you from your bind? What is the song that makes your spirit fly? Go on now, get back to your roots There is so much good work here for us to do Remember the ones who are breathing you With every exhale you breathe them too You don’t have to tell me what you find What are you weaving where are you intertwined? What is the spell that frees you from your bind? What is the song that makes your spirit fly? Your spirit fly There will come a day when joy replaces your pain It could be tomorrow Or maybe It could be You know if it were all up to me Then baby it would be… Today Today Today

The Distance 05:32
Everyday has been a pain Just to pluck these six strings Aand if I shy away It seems that it’s here to stay… Though the three dots on the last sentence Have something else to say… If you stay a little longer Past where fear has the last play You soon begin to appreciate The battle it has faced For the madness of this world Has never learned to sleep Can you imagine the new dawn This slumber will bring? For the shape of the last question mark Reveals quite a few things If you take look not directly It’s a resemblance from the side... You’ll see the shape of every question mark Resembles your own mind And the space that has been left From the dot up to the line Reflects the beauty in each choice you get Of how to fill your time May life fill you with the mystery Of why shadows dance with light May your ancestors finally be free When you pray for them tonight Yes there’s work to do but don’t rush ahead It’ll take you your whole life For the path you walk is yours alone And I am grateful for the time by your side So do your best and nothing less And when you cross the final finish line May you spirit rest there is no test You’ve been entrusted With this 1 in ten trillion miracle existence The stars will tell stories Of your courage and persistence When no is looking Your kindness makes all the difference Your songs are for singing Your soul’s true expression Your dreams are for living When they speak, please listen Your love is forgiving So love with forgiveness We’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it Oh we’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it In this 1 in ten trillion miracle existence The stars will tell stories Of your courage and persistence When no is looking Your kindness makes all the difference Your songs are for singing Your soul’s true expression Your dreams are for living When they speak, please listen Your love is forgiving So love with forgiveness We’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it Oh we’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it The distance In this 1 in ten trillion miracle existence The stars will tell stories Of your courage and persistence When no is looking Your kindness makes all the difference Your songs are for singing Your soul’s true expression Your dreams are for living When they speak, please listen Your love is forgiving So love with forgiveness We’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it We’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it We’ve made it this far And we’re gonna make it The distance
