Lead i might think i am , i'm always being led the choices i think i make have already been decided i choose to free myself, that i may free all souls for every drop of water is a life that 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 times my sails are full i soar with the wind and 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 roared to my soul oh great white thundering horses you've come to gallop with me lets run now the stars are calling the fog clears, wild is the drum invincible, oh see how we run
I awake for the dawn is out stretched all before me I am the bounty, i am all that i seek Iv'e spent my days rambling like a rover on the mountain the tears of freedom as the wind stings my face the art of this freedom is in parting in grace I give my words to the wolves, give my soul to the sunrise we are all mystics and fools I seek only beauty, call to the skies walk on strong, won't stray too long walk on strong, won't take too long There in the blizzard i bowed for forgiveness a voice it did speak from the darkness so sweet it said 'my dear child, i know you've been frightened, it's time to be gentle, keep peace in the storm live in devotion, keep peace in the storm
Great Oak 04:56
Seasons turned thank god they did for look what i learned the spinner of time had another plan for us i surrendered to her and she showed me who i am the spinner of time had another plan for us i followed her and she taught me who i am trees grow and i bodies get older when soul meets soul the fires that burn will mark one another well this i know, together we stood on the edge of time before now we walk on as strangers walk on the silence that settles the dew how the great oak still reminds me of you i wish you peace and happiness and blessings on all that you do though time moves on there's a place you and i will stay for love remains although we are now strangers though time moved on there's a place you and i have stayed i miss you still although we are now strangers
Forgiven 05:10
Cast your sins to the sea know that you are already free hold my hands to my heart in prayer for i know who i am and i'm already there come join me for my soul is as wild as this ragged untamed shore cliff i know i have felt gods kiss cradled in the grace of this yet again remembering that this i know All is forgiven, all is forgiven, all is forgiven All is forgiven, already forgiven, already
Beloved 03:16
oh i'm open now, sky spill down your grace to me i should be shaking but i'm endlessly bound by your ancient weave trust in the changing and waning within she silently speaks her secrets to me allow my breath to breathe i bow down in honour of thee Oh beloved of mine you come to me spin me round till i'm blind and back again pull me in with your tide envelop me oh your mine I thought i couldn't believe, cold is the water and deep is the sea her turquoise majesty, invites the depths of this mysery follow, folllow, follow me the stronger the currents the louder i sing undress my skin as she gathers me
