about

For the past six years, these songs have loved me, healed me and revealed my heart’s deepest longing-as an artist, a healer and a Mother. It feels as if this work is the reason I was born in this life.

Track Name: Inside City
INSIDE CITY
TUMBLING ACTUALLY CRUMBLING
SPINNING NO CONTROL
IMMENSE ROLLS, WAVES, THUNDER
BEYOND THE FEAR ALL YOU CAN DO IS WATCH ME
JUST A BUG ON THE RUG
OUTSIDE, INSIDE, NOWHERE
AFTERWARDS WE WERE ALL STILL HERE
NO BLOOD, NO BLOOD
JUST LOOKING FOR MY FRIENDS

NO BLOOD, NO BLOOD
JUST LOOKING FOR MY FRIENDS
Track Name: I'm Here Now
I’M HERE NOW
WATCHING THE SPACE
FEELING THE PAIN IN MY HEART

MY SKIN BLEEDS
NO RESISTANCE
I’M NOT WISHING
ON A STAR
I’M HERE NOW

AND I’M HERE NOW
WATCHING THE SPACE
ALLOWING IT TO BE
AS IT IS
MY HEAD SCREAMS
NO RESISTANCE
I’M NOT WISHING
ON A STAR
I’M HERE NOW

YOU AND I ARE ONE
DON’T YOU SEE
VIOLET FLAMES
A RARE HUE
AND IF YOU LOOK
A LITTLE DEEPLY
YOU WILL FIND
I’M HERE NOW

CONTORTION JEWELS AND SILVER CROWNS
TASTE SO BITTER NOW

I’M HERE NOW WATCHING THE SPACE
WATCHING THE SPACE
FEELING THE PAIN IN MY HEART

I’M HERE NOW
Track Name: Cry
TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF EVERYTHING IN LIFE
TRYING TO SORT IT ALL OUT IN MY MIND
LOVE IS NOT A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED
I ONLY CRY

USED TO BE APPROVAL WAS MY THING
WHAT YOU THINK OF ME WAS ALL THAT SEEMED
IMPORTANT IN THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE DREAM
IN YOUR BLUE EYES

NOW I SEE THE TRUTH’S INSIDE OF ME
FINE TO LOVE MYSELF AS GOD MADE ME
NOT FOR WHAT I THOUGHT YOU WANTED
FOR ME TO BE

MY HEART RIPPED OPEN WIDE

TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF EVERYTHING IN LIFE
TRYING TO SORT IT ALL OUT IN MY MIND
LOVE IS NOT A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED
I ONLY CRY
Track Name: Held So Sweetly
EVER SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL
I’VE BEEN WAITING
WAITING
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU

SEARCHING IN THE SUNLIGHT ON THE TREES
THE BUBBLING STREAM
INSIDE MY HEAD
AM I INSANE

AND THOUGH WORDS COULD NEVER SHOW
STILL I WANTED YOU TO KNOW
THAT YOUR PRESENCE
IS REALLY SOMETHING IN MY LIFE

AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN
THE PATH IS LEADING ME WITHIN
STILL YOUR SMILE
IS LIKE A LIGHT ALONG THE WAY

TIME LIKE CRYSTALS MELTING ON THE SAND
IT’S NO MATTER
I KNEW YOU’D COME
I NEVER LISTENED TO ANY OF THEM

AND WHEN YOU WALKED IN THAT DOOR
JUST LIKE I’D SEEN SO MANY TIMES BEFORE
I JUST DIED

AND THOUGH WORDS COULD NEVER SHOW
STILL I WANTED YOU TO KNOW
THAT YOUR PRESENCE
IS REALLY SOMETHING IN MY LIFE

AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN
THE PATH IS LEADING ME WITHIN
STILL YOUR SMILE
IS LIKE A LIGHT ALONG THE WAY

YOUR LAUGHTER FILLED THE AIR
YOU SPOKE OF MOUNTAINS AND SECRETS KEPT
AND IT THAT MOMENT I REALLY FELT
LIKE I WAS WRAPPED UP AND HELD SO SWEETLY
Track Name: My Man
UNDERNEATH YOUR PAIN I FEEL YOUR SONG
BEATING MY HEART
THE IMAGE REFLECTED IN YOUR EYE
SAYS IT ALL

IF THIS IS AN ILLUSION WHY CAN’T I BE
DELUDED IN YOU
I’M DESPERATE TO BREAK THROUGH THESE FROZEN WALLS
BUT I CAN’T SEE THROUGH

PAIN IS THE CHAIN OF OLD KEEPING YOU
FROM YOUR SELF
YOUR EXPECTATIONS CHISELED INTO STONE
THEY FORM YOUR CELL

IF THIS IS AN ILLUSION WHY CAN’T I BE
DELUDED IN YOU
I’M DESPERATE TO BREAK THROUGH THESE FROZEN WALLS
BUT I CAN’T SEE THROUGH

YOU WALK IN
FEELING FINE
YOU WALK RIGHT IN
THERE’S A MAGIC IN YOUR SMILE

I FEEL YOUR TOUCH ONCE MORE
FOR THE FIRST TIME
MY MAN

JUST SHUT YOUR EYES AND FALL INTO MY DREAM
TAKE MY HAND
MY MAN
Track Name: In The Sun
IT’S BEEN A LONG HARD ROAD
DOWN THE LINE
I’VE LOST THE TRUEST PART
OF WHO I AM

HOW MUCH CAN ONE MAN TAKE
NOTHING SEEMS TO STICK
I’VE GOT TO FIND A WAY
TO BE THE MAN FOR YOU

YOU IN THE SUN
IN THE MORNING
YOU ARE MORE THAN YOU KNOW

BE STILL MY LOVE
I BELIEVE IN YOU
YOUR HEART WILL FIND A WAY
TO LEAD YOU HOME

HAVE FAITH MY LOVE
I KNOW IT’S HARD
BUT THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE
CANNOT BE TORN FROM YOU

YOU IN THE SUN
IN THE MORNING
YOU ARE MORE THAN YOU KNOW

SOMETIMES YOU’VE GOT TO LAY IT DOWN
TO GET INSIDE
EVEN WHEN IT’S COMING DOWN
THE WAY STILL KNOWS THE WAY

FLY, DADDY FLY

YOU IN THE SUN
IN THE MORNING
YOU ARE MORE THAN YOU KNOW

YOU IN THE SUN
IN THE MORNING
YOU ARE MORE
SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU KNOW
Track Name: Beloved
BELOVED YOU MUST BE VERY
NEAR TO ME NOW
I’VE BEEN CRYING, I’M DYING
THE RAIN COMES DOWN
DIFFERENT STORY NOW
EACH PART OF ME IN PIECES ON THE GROUND

LIGHTNING HAILS
I’M SO AFRAID
PLEASE HELP ME
PLEASE HELP ME TO FIND MY WAY HOME

THUNDER SOUNDS
DIFFERENT PRESENCE NOW
PRETTY BABY FROM ANOTHER SPACE IN TIME

LIGHTNESS HEALS
BRING ME PEACE
PLEASE HELP ME
PLEASE HELP ME TO FIND THAT I’M HOME

SEE THE TREES
THE TREE OF LIFE
SEE I JUST FOUND
I’M BREAKING GROUND

BELOVED YOU MUST BE VERY
NEAR TO ME NOW

Track Name: Mother Of Mine
ON THE JOURNEY HOME
CLOUDS MELTING GREY
CAN YOU SEE ME HERE

GOLDEN PINK
BLUSH HOME
AND WASH AWAY
WON’T YOU COME IN
CHOCOLATE’S STEAMING

HOLD ME IN YOUR ARMS
AND DON’T LET GO
MOTHER
OH MOTHER
MOTHER OF MINE

OPEN UP SILLY
I’M COMING IN
WHY ALL THE TEARS

LOVE IS ALL AROUND
FOR YOU TO SHARE
COME MY DARLING
LET ME KISS YOUR HEAD

I NEVER WAS SO BEAUTIFUL
AS RIGHT NOW
WITH YOU THERE
SHINING YOUR LIGHT
ON MY FACE

SIT DOWN NEXT TO ME
AND REST AWHILE
I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE YOU HERE
IT’S NOT TIME, IT’S NOT TIME
STAY A LITTLE WHILE LONGER
WE CAN PLAY THAT GAME
THE ONE YOU ALWAYS LET ME WIN

ROCK ME IN YOUR ARMS
AND DON’T LET GO
MOTHER
OH MOTHER
MOTHER OF MINE

I’M SO LOST
I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO GO
MOTHER
OH MOTHER
MOTHER OF MINE

ON THE JOURNEY HOME
STARS PULSING BRIGHT
CAN YOU SEE ME HERE

LOVE IS ETERNAL
AND WE ARE ONE
YOU ALREADY HAVE EVERYTHING

I NEVER HAD TO LET YOU WIN, NO
JUST LOOK AT YOU THERE
SHINING YOUR LIGHT
ON THE WORLD

I NEVER HAD TO LET YOU WIN, NO
JUST LOOK AT YOU THERE
YOU ARE THE BEAUTY OF LIFE

ON THE JOURNEY HOME
VAST IS THE NIGHT
CAN YOU FEEL ME HERE
