Track Name: Sweep
SWEEP - Lyrics

the wind is playing with the leaves
as your whisper with my ears
as your fingers on my skin
type the words and promises

and i wish i'd take that fall
let the love move in my soul
if i'd only take a dare
if you only weren't scared
if we only weren't scared

i wanna...
..wanna sweetest something
i want that sweetest something
i wanna greet
my sweet defeat
come and sweep
me off my feet

the wind it smells, it smells like snow
within our heart i'm letting go
of all the fears that they have known
all of them we're letting go

girl, now listen, you're my fairy, i confess you this today
you're the one that i will marry, carry carry me away
and the house with a porch and trees and lawn
and little children of our own
and cats and dogs and planes and roads
and you and i and the surfing boards...

... i wanna sweetest something
i wanna sweetest something
i wanna greet our sweet defeat
come and sweep
me off my feet

within our hearts we're letting go
of all the fears that they have known
for all the wonders yet to come
Track Name: Markedly More
Came to find, going wild
has nothing to do with the state of the mess
it's having a banquet with fears that confined me
that lead to this peace of consciousness
and it's time to believe

we are so so so so
markedly markedly markedly more!

Leap to the unknown, cross that border
acknowledging everything's out of control
initially feels like you're out of order
a wondrous flight that starts with a fall, fall, fall...

...and we're so so so
markedly markedly markedly more!
(a frown on a face of a clown... a frown on a doll)

never mind, i'm just blabbering
what am i, what's my bet?
nevermind, i'm just blabbering
i am a fool i'm a queen i'm a saint...

if i trust my intuition
over the pile of the facts that i know
i'm letting the magic swing with this mission
there is so much more
when you open that door
oh just open the door oh oh

never mind, i'm just blabbering
what am i, what is "I"?
nevermind, i'm just blabbering
i am a fool i'm a queen i'm a saint...
Track Name: Cut and Mend
cut and mend, my hands
can't undo the spoken
repented words just like birds
slip between the fingers

staining red the unsaid
collecting all the broken
fragments of your face
lying on the floor

oh is this what we wish for,
are we heading nowhere here,
oh this is what we wish for...

stare at your back as you walk away
and i'm thinking your shoulders look so beautiful
i'm left naked, torn of your embrace
and it's windy, we're hueing into autumn

and autumn dominates your skin
separate, we'll ripen
leave to the Earth
our singular inheritance

this present tense
merciless collection of
worlds and dreams that we won't make together

oh but this is just just who we are...

stare at your back as you walk away
and i'm thinking your shoulders look so beautiful
i'm left naked, torn of your embrace
and it's windy, we're hueing into autumn

….maybe my twigs will never reach your branches
but you and i dear, we are joined at the roots
maybe my twigs will never reach your branches
but you and i dear, we are joined at the roots
...maybe one day my twigs will reach your branches
and you and i, we'll lean onto each other
yet maybe my twigs will never reach your branches
but you and i dear we're joined at the roots
joined at the roots, joined at the roots...

cut and mend, my hands can't undo the spoken
repented words just like birds
slip between the fingers...
Track Name: Love & Light
Now and then i get lost
looking for my way home
in the darkness with no dawn

then i doubt i'll never find
never find my peace of mind
a match lit in a storm
can this flame grow? .. yet i know

we're all just love and light
and i feel so alive
within my soul
we're all just love and light
and i feel so alive
within my soul

the less i know the more i own
the less i know the more i own
the less i know the more

given the wonder yet i wonder
yet i question in the doubt
i guess it's human
all this assuming
to know what this is all about

but the words can't say the truth in me, no
'cause they define
by their nature borders,
they draw the lines
the only Y(why) that we will ever need
is one that gets to turn
the unit to the unitY

we're all just love and light
and i feel so alive
within my soul
we're all just love and light
and i feel so alive
within my soul
we're all just love and light
and i feel so alive
and i feel i feel i feel
we're all just love and light
and i feel so alive
oh i am so alive

we have found our way
we have found our wave
Track Name: Alice and Peter
eat me drink me take a step
follow me to the wonderland, peter..
it tastes bitter, but...
it can make you small or it can make you grow
but it won't arrest your fall
through the rabbit hole.. peter peter..

i have a cat, a little magic hat
a pile of cards a crown and a teapot
for you peter

'cause I'm that Wonder that dared your Never
confessed this love will last forever..
oh yes I'm that Wonder that dared your Never
admit this love will last..
'cause i'm your alice..
and you're my peter
my sweetheart my sweet hurt

i don't need a sailorman
to sail me to the neverland
i've been there, peter..

and if you take a better look
you'll see i'm not a baited hook
either.. my peter...

tic tic tac the clocks will state
time to run or you're running late?
neither.. you're my peter

'cause i'm that Wonder that dared your Never
to conceive this onset of forever
yes i'm the One that dared your never
to conceive this love will last
'cause i'm your alice
and you're my peter
my sweetheart my sweet hurt

heart won't callous.. it will cherish us..
my sweetheart my sweet hurt
...my swede...
Track Name: Pure Gold
you… an exception to a lame and common rule
you… take my breath away, with you i'd move the world

but small souls wait for you to fail
weave a wreath and bring the nails
fray you with their empty words
but you my friend must know your worth..
you my friend must know your worth,
you my friend must know...

…you're pure gold
don't listen to what you're told
let your heart shine because you own
the most exceptional and brilliant soul i ever saw
and all their shit talk and all their bullshit
and all their shit talk is just meaningless air
all that bullshit is just meaningless air
and i'm your siren so i remind you
that you're pure gold

you… a bona fide love that i am so proud of
you…inspiring and true, with you i'll change the world

but i see you standing in the doubt
hey my friend, this is what it's all about
time for you to draw a line
time for you to stand and shine
time for you to know

…you're pure gold
don't listen to what you're told
let your heart shine because you own
the most exceptional and brilliant soul i ever saw
and all their shit talk and all their bullshit
and all their shit talk is just meaningless air
all their bullshit is just meaningless air
and i'm your siren so i remind you
that you're pure gold

and i know the song ringing in your heart
so i sing it back to you, to remind you of the words
and i know the song ringing in your heart
and i'm singing back to you, to remind you of the words
and i know the song ringing in your heart
so i sing it back to you, to remind you of the words
and i know the song ringing in your heart
and i'm singing back to you, to remind you of the words
to remind you that you're
pure gold.

Track Name: Weather Change
A weather change takes me by surprise,
i find there is so much here to mind
if you dare to use that eye

Weather change, the sun it shines so bright
i'll take your hand, even though it's made of light
'cause you my dear are made of light
but i am stuck here throwing shadows
i cast a shadow even when you shine on me

won't you take me, take me to your higher place
'cause i don't really get it here
down on Earth where death and birth
apparently comprise it all
down on Earth where death and birth
sometimes come together,
then i fail to understand, i just fail to understand
so you slip between my hands

Been here for, for a while but still
somehow fail to see it clear
illusions bloom my dear

now and then i somehow come to reach
the universe and the lesson that you wanna teach
but then it's gone and...
i get lost here with my shadow
don't mind my shadow when you come to shine on me

won't you take me, take me to your higher place...
'cause i don't really get it here
down on Earth where death and birth
apparently comprise it all
down on Earth where death and birth
sometimes come together,
then i fail to understand, i just fail to understand
so you slip between my hands

..and even waves here have a shadow
don't mind my shadow when you come to shine on me

if weather can still surprise me then
i still have a lot to learn
if weather can still surprise me then
i still have a lot to learn
and there is so much left to learn...
better face the truth my dear
death and birth sometimes come together
when you're stuck down on the Earth

To my son, who inspired and co-written this song with me, who taught me the most, who lead my way through the darkness.
My soul is joy when you come to shine on me.
Track Name: Ode To Joy
If I would write a fairytale to you
to make you sleep
it would tell about
oh about a boy and a girl
born far in the world

and even though so very different
they shared a name
even though so very distant
they felt the same
so the magic came
...after many miles
there came the smiles
he smiled to her... and she.. she smiled back to him

if i could sing you a lullaby
to make you sleep
oh i would weave in
all the cosmic love within
the love we shared shared
shared the day you came
the love we share today

and even though you wouldn't stay
we love you anyway
even though you wouldn't stay
we love you
even though you wouldn't stay
we're still your mom and dad
even though you wouldn't stay
we love you and want you back
want you back, want you back

and even though so very different
they shared a name
even though so very distant
they felt the same
even though you wouldn't stay
we're still your mom and dad
even though you wouldn't stay
we love you and want you back
want you back, welcome back

...now i weave in
all the cosmic love within,
the love we share share share today

To my son, who inspired and co-written this song with me, who taught me the most, who lead my way through the darkness.
You are the joy of the Universe.
