Track Name: Let Love In
Can you feel the water / rushing all over you / it’s coursing through your body / bathing you with the truth
*Let love in
Spirit is all around you / snaking through your veins / healing from the inside / so only love remains
*Let love in
~Life is just a ceremony / with its ups and downs / find the strength to ride the waves / and you will never drown
*Let love in
Track Name: School of Self Love
I never thought I’d be in the school of self love / I guess I thought I’d graduated, I’d risen above /
Sometimes on the spiral, I pass by the same things / but I am traveling upwards while I am circling this ring
We are shown we’re not worthy unless we meet the conditions / set up in this 3-d world full of limitations
I invite you to shed that skin and blast open your heart / give love to your fragmented self and all that you are
*Who can heal your self / It’s you 
Don’t forget you’re a goddess, the divine is within you / let your power and light shine out, self love can heal you
You are perfect the way you came with no exceptions / divorce yourself from the guilt and shame, strengthen pure connections
I rest my heart on the bare ground and speak to mother earth / I am giving my life to you. I vow to do your work
I am breaking the shackles that chain me. I am living free / I am grateful for every moment. I live joyfully 
*Who can heal your self / It’s you
Track Name: To Be Born
We live by our names / We live by our faces / We dream about the gains from reaching higher places
*What if we had no names / What if we lost our faces / Would we still be the same if we quit running races
We compare ourselves, standing side by side / but trees do not dwell on being different heights
*What if we could relate instead of compete / We'd see we're all changing into something more complete
Let yourself fall, dissolving your form / Inside of you is All, just waiting to be born 
*What if to be born, we first have to die / Let the veil be torn, are you willing to try
Track Name: Good Morning
Woke up this morning to the sun rise shining in my face
Turned over under my pillow, that’s where I hid my face
*and I said good morning to the sun rise / good morning to my face
good morning to the shadows / good morning to this place
Get out of bed and tend to the garden / I watch the flowers bloom
I stretch my arms out and touch the white clouds / because out here there’s room
*to say good morning to the sun rise / good morning to my face
good morning to the shadows / good morning to this place
I spend my days out here with my sweetheart / together we feel alone
that’s just the way that we both like it / it’s how our souls feel at home
*and we say good morning to the sun rise / good morning to my face
good morning to the shadows / good morning to this place
Track Name: On the Edge
I'm on the edge / I can see the ground / I'm stuck on the edge can't find my way down
I'm in between above and below / sometimes I feel wise sometimes I don't know
*Sometimes I want to lay down / Close my eyes and let the world drown / fade away
I'm walking on a big sheet of glass / I know just what to say but I'm afraid to ask / I feel the words melt from my lips / I want to be a light but I lost my wick
*Sometimes I want to lay down/ Close my eyes and let the world drown/ fade away

Track Name: You're Alright
*You’re okay / you’re alright
When you were born you were just a seed / now you are ready to start flowering
Your scent is subtle but your reach is far / you’re letting go of who you think you are / who you are / who are you
*You’re okay / you’re alright
You are healing deep inside / even if you’re blind or if you realize
So let the work unfold inside of you / no need to fight or push your way through
Be here now / now be here
*You’re okay / you’re alright
~You are one with the earth / you are one with the sky / you’re the bridge in between / being human and divine
Plant your feet down on the earth / remember who you were before you birth
Lift your head and look up to the sky / you’re the vessel from the divine
You are here / here you are
Track Name: Gracefully Falling
I am gracefully falling / no plans but I'm humbly calling / on my strength and my will and the spirit / and I can and I will be open to hear it
*Floating up/ sinking in/ what is will be/ I won't resist
I am a seeker / through Crystal caves / I'm my own healer / and I bathe and I play in the forest / and I sing and I praise / what is before us
*Floating up / sinking in / what is will be / I won't resist
~let go
Track Name: Soul Wishes
My longings they call me / I lift my head and pray / I speak to the dark moon / for the earth is where I stay / I find myself walking / on some trail unknown / There’s branches around me / it seems over grown
*But I open my eyes and see my path / shed my disguise / now I can relax 
Sacred smoke is burning / and purifying me / Voicing my soul’s wishes / in ceremony / I’m wishing for life and for my happiness / An open path to walk in my humbleness
*But I open my eyes and see my path / shed my disguise / now I can relax
 ~life, health, and happiness
Track Name: Growing For The World
It’s not always black and white / the sky is sometimes grey / It’s not always wrong and right / no matter how much we wish it that way
We gotta step out / we’ve gotta rise up / get out of our mind / we’ve got to let go / we’ve gotta fall back / get past space and time
We’re in heaven or in hell / we’re searching for relief / but that is found inside ourselves / when we finally release / our desires and our attachments / let them slip away / your desires and attachments / are just a game you play
*We are changing / and we’re evolving / we’re growing for the world
We’re walking with our arms outstretched / looking for something to hold / wrap your arms around yourself / you are your pot of gold / it’s within/not without you / that the treasure lies / just remember / you’re eternal/wonderful and wise
*We are changing / and we’re evolving / we’re growing for the world
Track Name: Vessel For Love
Each moment you wake up / the choice is yours to hold / will you lay down in fear / or stand up and be bold
*We have a choice to rise up / and be a vessel for love 
Sometimes there’s boulders in our path / forcing us to slow down / Here we must face our pain / there’s no easy way around 
*We have a choice to rise up / and be a vessel for love
Can you see yourself / as capable and divine / Treat yourself with reverence / and honor your life
*We have a choice to rise up / and be a vessel for love
Track Name: You Are Everlasting
You ask your self who am I / I am is the plainest answer / it’s not who you used to be / or what you’re chasing after
I am is consciousness / It was present before birth / It’ll stay when our bodies leave/ Because it transcends death
You must shed your layers they will only hide you / You must let go of what you think defines you
*But take it slow / take your time / you are everlasting / Take it slow / enjoy the ride / there is no end 
You are everything you think you could never be / You’re the only one who has power over your destiny / You’re not just mechanistic / you’re part of a whole / Every choice you choose affects all our souls 
You must open up the box you keep around you / let everything in and love will soon surround you
*But take it slow / take your time / you are everlasting / Take it slow / enjoy the ride / there is no end
Track Name: Allow Yourself To Grow
There’s a sadness deep down inside / you try your hardest begging it to hide / but it will never leave you / so introduce yourself / learn to love it / in sickness and in health
*Allow yourself to grow / take all the time you need / you’re becoming a flower / for you planted this seed
That feeling is your signal that you are changing / every seed needs a dark time like the moon needs its waning / let yourself take rest / you’re just waiting on the sun / find comfort in the knowing of what you will become
*Allow yourself to grow / take all the time you need / you’re becoming a flower / for you planted this seed
