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
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
Track Name: Words and Wolves
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
Track Name: Great Oak
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
Track Name: Forgiven
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
Track Name: Beloved
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
