Lyrics – Willows and Waves

Hazel Tree

Swim down
underneath the world of green
hazel
your seeds are dropping in the fishes deep

Hazel
follow me down
hazel
to rise above

Lure you
underneath the hazel tree
rise above
open heart receive this seed

Hazel
follow me down
hazel
to rise above

 

Same Room Twice

You cannot walk into the same room twice
You cannot walk into the same room twice
How you gonna change me?

Feet in the tide wet and dry where the land takes drink
Eyes open wide space and time always receding
Particle light waves inside stars are breathing
Look in my eyes it’s yourself that you’re seeing

Everything is changing.

 

Feather and a Dream

Lai, Lai , Lai, Lai , Lai …

It was all a sheet of water
Skated around on my feet
To the sky there fell a ladder
And it’s shadow underneath
There’s nothing really to see here
Just a choice of up or down
Just to choose if you’re in or out or in between
If you are silent
If you are sound.

Lai, Lai , Lai, Lai , Lai …

So I skated around on the water
As far as the eye could see
Wave after wave kept crashing in
But my feet they stayed straight
If you only knew how free you were
If you only knew how deep
If you only knew how free you were
You’d close your eyes to see.

Lai, Lai , Lai, Lai , Lai …

Rise in my cloud
Bring the water down
I love you so eagerly.
Your in my heart like a little bird
Flown out to sea.

 

Willows and Waves

Oh love, you’re not alone
Under the willows
Under the waves
In the fire where you were forged
Stardust and clay they made your name

If you ever forget your home
Feel how I’m beating in your veins
And when all the world grows cold
Stardust and clay
We are the same.

Always waiting
Always waiting for you
To drop a line
To drop a feather
To leave me something that’s true
All it takes is a little lightning to bring me back to you.
A little lightning
A little flood
to bring me back home to you.
I can’t go where you are.

Lift the veil.

 

Sparkle

I’m waiting on the other side
Come see me in the fireflies
I’ve been here for a long long time
Here watching with the GalaxEyes.

Dew drops gather in the morning light.
Even the grass is listening when we speak.”,
“A song about waking up in the morning.”),

array(“tango”,”Tango Del Niebla”,”Tango_Del_Niebla”,
“Lying in my bed thinking how did you find your way in here?
Came in through the curtain of a thousand shallow hours
Awaiting deep
Who are you that comes like this?

Lifting up the veil to uncover what’s been waiting on the inside
Tango del Niebla can we ever sing the voice of this quiet aching?
Who are you that comes like this?

Only in dreams will we wake
To this mess we’re in

Only in dreams is it safe
To lean into this

Wanting to love a mistake
Oh this mess we’re in

Only in dreams will we wake
To this flood.

 

Untied

I’m not afraid
afraid of darkness
it’s you whose afraid of light.

How long you’ve been
hiding behind
emptiness and pain.

Fleeing the light
the light of Truth and day
fiending control of lives
seething with rage

You’ve been building a wall all around
burying yourself inside.

Come untied.

It’s not I who’s afraid of the darkness
See now it’s you who won’t
step into the light.
Not your offering.
I’m not your puppet string.
Nothing to hide as I
become untied.

Try to pull me in (way down)
where I’ve already been
long enough to know
there’s nothing here.
There’s nothing here.
there’s nothing here.
there’s nothing here.

 

Love Lies Sleeping

Felt you like the sun
a slowly rising light
look how the day is changing into night again
I know you’d be so warm

My love lies sleeping
tucked underneath the leaves
been tearing your roots out of me
gathering all your seeds

Don’t make me look into you at all today
it’s burning out my eyes
like I can choose how the waves rise and fall again
like trying to change the tide

my love lies sleeping
only to rouse
all this bloodless weeping
cover me with cloud

The purest love
is like that cloud
illuminated by the sun.
The purest love
is born of darkness
illuminated by the sun.

All I’ve ever wanted is love.

 

Missing Piece

There’s a missing piece
That was found in you
Can’t I be self contained
Can’t I be self contained

Sing through the walls to you
Sing it back to me
Music carries on the trees
Can’t I be self contained

Always wanting something outside
Though you seem to be inside
Of my mind
All the time.

There’s a missing piece
That was found in you
Can’t I be self contained
Can’t I be self contained

There’s a missing piece
That was never really there
A little crack in a perfect heart
A little break in a perfect heart

Always wanting something outside
Though you seem to be inside
My mind
Holding onto Nothing
High wire walking
On golden strings
All tied to you
Tied to you

 

St. Mary of the Snow

White moths
Touch my skin
Try to open
Try to let them in

One sweep of wing turns the body into snow.

White moths
Fall through darkness to the flame
Snow white body
Pushes darkness from their wing.

One sweep of wing turns the body into snow.

Mary.
Na koo loo Kawaii
Na koo loo koo loo Kawaii
The end chant is in Hawai’ian describing movement of water
