Track Name: Bow and Arrow
I offer myself to you; I’m in service of truth
every utter be pure
I open the shutters wide inviting the light in
oh now I see it all

could I dare to clamber below
to meet Hades on his throne in his kingdom of fire?
I’m a pilgrim on a quest, from this searching I’ll never rest
only climb higher

It’s not just answers I seek
go knocking at all doors
I’m leaving behind all that comforts me
going hunting with my bow and arrow

I’m willing to feel it all, demons and every gaul
I have all the strength I need
I muster the courage, flutter my wings, won’t hurry
for in flying first I must fall

freedom is my true name; I wont run any race
calmly I unlace the chords
I’m untying life times of lying, embrace no shying
watch me dissolve

it’s not just answers…

dive into water, dive into water, dive into water…

dive into water, trust and I’ll free fall,
dive into water, there’s treasure to be found
dive into water, trust and I’ll free fall,
dive into water, yes I’ll be brave.

it’s not just answers…
Track Name: Thundering Horses
Lead I might think I am, I’m always being led
the choices I think I make have already been decided
so I choose to free myself that I may free all souls
for every drop of water there’s a life that’s rolling on

There’s an ocean inside of me
and sometimes I feel I’m the sailor
there’s an ocean inside of me
and sometimes I feel I’m at the mercy of the tempest
there’s an ocean and sometimes my sails are full
I soar with the wind and I reach for the moon
there’s an ocean inside that reminds me

I’m in the hands of the gods
I’m in the hands of the gods

storms come crashing my waves and I will bow to your grace,
I’d rather an ocean that roars to my soul
oh great white thundering horses you’ve come to gallop with me
let’s run now, the stars are calling
the fog clears wild is the drum
invincible, oh see how we run…

There’s an ocean inside of me…

I’m in the hands of the gods
I’m in the hands of the gods
Track Name: Only Love
Willow Tree come speak to me
speak to me of your weeping
I come to listen to your story
oh, your dance of sorrow
may your wisdom flow through me and bring me healing

flowing waters, rain is pouring
now I hear the ocean roaring
thunder only frightens those who fear it
open my wings, raw and tender
now you ask me to surrender
I lift up my hands; I remember how it goes from here

I see my edges, fears cold fingers
walls that from long ago still linger
strip me naked, bare I quiver, unfurling

all is welcome, come whatever
no resistance, this way it’s better
may my boundaries be my quest
come untethered

open my heart deeper, deeper
ever flowing is the river
at the gateway stands the keeper singing;
he says ‘You’ve come this far, you need go no further
I will always be your true lover
for in this kingdom reigns no other, only love
only love, only love, only love

open my heart deeper, deeper
ever flowing is the river.
Track Name: Trust and Surrender
Everything’s perfectly as it should be, trust me x 2
everything’s perfectly as it should be, trust me, trust me

I love you just the way you are right now x 3
right here in this moment you’re perfect to me

everything’s clearing and I release x 3

I let go and I’m open, I release with devotion x 4

trust and surrender, trust and surrender
trust and surrender, always remember this
Track Name: I call you
I call upon my ancestors as I bow to the earth
I call upon my ancestors ‘Come speak to me’
I ask for the wisdom of the elders and from those who walked here before
I call to the wind and the stars and the moon, ‘Come breathe through me’
I call to the buzzard and the hawk, ‘Teach me to ride on the wind’
the waves pounding at my shore teach me what surrender means

spirit of the deer ‘I call you, I call upon you’
spirit of the trees ‘I call you, I call upon you’
White Buffalo Woman ‘I call you, I call upon you’
spirit of the breeze ‘I call you, I call upon you’

wind blow through me, you remind from where I came
I am born from thee and Spirit is my name
these rivers run through me from deep within the ground
I remember this dance as the ancient drum beat sounds

que me cura, que me guía , que me llena con la Vida.
me cura, que me guía , poderosa medicina.
me cura, en sus brazos no hay duda que me ama Mama.

I call upon the spirit of the horse, with you I know freedom
I ask for the guidance of my guardians that walk beside me
I summon the earth, air, fire and water; to you I shall return
to our mother the earth, my life is a prayer,
my breath your eternal song

al gran misterio, ‘te amo, a ti estoy llamando’
Tunkasila, te amo, a ti estoy llamando’

I call you, I know you hear me
I feel you breathing through me…
I call you, I know you hear me
I feel you breathing through me…
Track Name: Come Closer
The earth says, “I will hold you, just come closer”
I will hold you, just come closer”

tears upon my altar
the morning’s cold I shiver
have courage now take shelter
spring is in the air is warming all is wakening
arms are opening wide

I turn to the earth and pray
‘may I always know what I came here for’
the forest calls,
my grandmothers once walked this ancient way
and I know in my bones I know this from before

I’m coming home, I know in my bones I know this from before
I’m coming home, I know in my bones I know this from before

what a precious gift, how could I turn away?
I’ll treasure all you teach me,
no matter what color or whatever the shade
I love this learning
remind me to trust when gone is my faith
for all is but fleeting
the wheel keeps on turning as long grows the days

I turn to the earth and pray…

when the bow is pulled taught is when the arrow springs forth x 2

I love this yearning, I love how it feels
do what you will with me, do what you will…

do what you will with me, do what you will
do what you will.
Track Name: Vuela con el Viento
Llévame con tus alas de luz
águila tráenos medicina
del viento del aire, las estrellas
del sol brillando, guía mi camino

Cura, cura, cúrame,
sana todo lo que yo llevo
agradesco por mi vida
Pachamama yo te amo
Vuela con el viento…

Llévame con tus alas de amor
Condorcito tráenos medicina
del cielo, ilumina mi interior
volando enseña mi camino

(Translation)

Carry me with your wings of light
Eagle bring us the medicine
of the wind, of the air, of the stars, of the sun
shining, you guide the way

Cure, cure, cure me
heal everything I carry
giving gratitude for my life
Mother Earth I love you

Fly with the wind, fly with the wind

carry me with your wings of love,
Condor bring us the medicine of the sky,
illuminate my interior
flying, you show me the way
Track Name: Seashore
Poetry came in search of me,
I don’t know where it came from
but I wrote the first line
my nonsense, my wisdom,
my blessing and my shadow,
my courage, my fear,
my confusion and my clarity

as I breathe in the sea shore
to ponder on my mind
I surrender to my body now,
my voice, you’re my tide

as I breathe in the sea shore
to purify my mind
I find I hear your voice
it’s you I adore

as I whisper my goodbye
and creep underneath the night
I can’t ignore this voice that is calling me
from her beauty I won’t turn to hide
wash me up upon the tide
just see me throw my arms up to her glory

as I breathe in the seashore….

she calls me, she calls me, she calls to me…
Track Name: All Things
Take me to the center
where I’m only touched by truth
take me far beyond this ocean ever moving
oh, the flock of geese are heading off to warmer shores
I know if I follow them, to my wildness I'll be lost

I am a shape shifter of miracles
I am a creator giving birth to all
I am the silence that I sense within
I am the preacher and the one who’s listening

I am forgiveness and the forgiving
I am this beating heart and all I carry within me
I am the spirit of my forefathers and my children
I carry a song line that’s never been forgotten

I am the roots and the fruit that’s ripening
I am the thunder and I am the lightening
I am the hunted and the hunt that ever runs
I am the moon turning its lifetime round the sun

if I am all things, and all things unto me
then I will breathe and speak and be only Beauty...'
Track Name: Tracking
I drive away down wandering lanes
by candlelight I contemplate
I’ve come here to find some space
oh, drink in the air to breathe out my cobwebs
I’m lighting the dark of these shadows away

for I’m off, off to run with the wolves
to hunt what my soul needs for food
I’m off tracking, to run with the wolves
oh this freedom I seek is in solitude
freedom and solitude is all I need

what is it that you seek?
for I am sure there’s a goddess inside of me
time and again I know how she speaks
oh, winds come to catch me now
for I have no idea of these ripples around me

for I’m off, off to run with the wolves
to hunt what my soul needs for food
I’m off tracking, to run with the wolves
oh, peace I’d love to know you now
silence you’re such a beautiful thing
peace I know you now

silence you beautiful thing, I love to know you now
peace I feel you within; I feel I’ve found you now
silence you beautiful thing, I love how I know you now
peace I feel you within; I know I’ve found you now
I’ve always known you now.
Track Name: Follow The Light
You know where you’re going
listen how the silence calls
just follow you’re inner knowing
for in the heart you’ll find it all

just follow the light of your soul
follow the light of your soul
just follow the light of your soul
Follow the light of you soul

your glowing soul is a flaming fire
haoe courage to dance within your flames
Oh spirit never tires to whisper the sound of your name

Just follow the light of your soul…

Ffr you shine so bright, Holy Spirit, beautiful soul
just trust in your light, you know your way, you’re coming home
for you shine so bright, Holy Spirit, beautiful soul
just trust in your light, you know your way, you’re coming home

just follow the light….
