Lyrics – Sounds of Soul

 

So Lovely

I’m watching as you move through space

you got purpose you got grace.

Let your body lead do the talking

time doesn’t steal your show.

Your’re not going up, going down, running round

no one to please here

Walking  truth

look at you  - you’re the proof

honey that’s your way.

 

So lovely you are the sun that shines

So beauty full as you are

You bring the light of the universe

So precious you are love divine

 

I’m watching as you walk as you talk

as you move as you feel your way.

Steady as she goes trusting what you know

with the flow….. you don’t sway.

There’s no picture, no get it right, no gotta fight

rules don’t define you.

Listen to your heart loving every part of you

honey that’s your way

 

Love in your eyes

Sassy swing in your hips

So lovely – yes you’re all this

You’re all this.

 

Truth About Love

We speak about love as elusive

a transient deal that’s exclusive

My lover, my mother, my sister, my brother

They’ve got the licence to use it

And I’ll love you back it’s a contract

There’s terms and conditions or I'll retract

And you walk out the door there’s LOVE no more

Love is measured, we’re keeping scores

Sabotaged by emotion

this constructed and bankrupt notion

leaves us giddy and obsessed, empty and distressed

IN THE NAME OF LOVE?

Feeling less and needing more

Keeping us from our core

Uh ah

So what’s the truth ?

 

…………………………………………….

 

Love is an action

Love is a movement

It's in your words, your walk, your talk

Love is real

Love is true

Wont make me less or bigger than you

Love is surrender has no agenda

Doesn’t play ball with your culture your gender

Doesn’t oscillate or discriminate

Decide you don’t fit and shut the gate.

Love is steady love is sure

It’s not a rollercoaster or a swinging door

Love is always inviting you to be more

 

…………………………………………

 

Love’s in the detail

Love’s in the care

Love’s in the way that I brush my hair

Love is power

Love is grace

Love is alive when you look in my face

Simplicity

Love is space

Love expands as we co-create

In work and play and a nod your way

Every moment we can choose love.

We can move in love

We can speak with love

Make our bed and drink our tea in love

We’re writing this song and playing the keys in love

Love begins in you, and me

 

………………………………………………

 

Come Together

Listen this is my position

You got some affliction

I’m the only one making sense

Time for you to back up

This argument don’t stack up

Your seeing black when its white.

I know the problem you just got to change

Top of the mountain I see all the way

Aint love in action far as I can see

You gotta stop it now

So we can be

 

Come together

New world coalition

Where we got no fixed position

Gotta come together

universal constellation

 

Twisting feeling my resistance

Righteous persistence

I aint goin’nowhere

Time out

Who invited this crowd

All just getting way loud

And I’m losing myself

I come down the mountain I can see

What’s hurting you is clearly hurting me

It’s a simple science law of energy

I gotta change it up

So we can be

 

Come together

New world coalition

Where we got no fixed position

Gotta come together

universal constellation

working in the same vibration.

 

My Soul

Constant repetition in my mind

Always searching

Try and try to get it right

Bar keeps moving

Feeling like I gotta do this all alone

When you gonna grow on up and be strong

The voices in my head the lies they spread

All illusion

 

Walk out into the sunshine yeah

You know exactly who you are

Raise your hand up turn the light on yeah

And feel my love again.

 

MY SOUL – you are my love

 

Something so familiar

This light in me

Brave is the one who stands

So completely

Staying the course being okay with the tension

Dropping your guard losing all protection

Peel away the layers let them see you

Loves reflection

 

MY SOUL – you are my love

 

Bringing Sexy Back

There’s not a shelf that I’m comfortable to sit on

Can’t put me in a box that you can tick.

No more toughen up these walls are coming down

I’m showing up my feet are on the ground

And when you look in my eyes you’ll see heaven smiling back.

 

Got a body feel me moving we’re not holding back

Feel the volume sayin’ yes I’m hot and that’s a fact

Feel the fire it’s the fullness that’s inside of you

Bring it into every little thing you do.

 

We’re bringing sexy back

We’re bringing sexy back

 

We walk and talk to the rhythm of our own beat

Vulnerability is now so sweet

We don’t dramatise or manipulate

Done with games we play it straight

And when you look in our eyes

You’ll see you.

 

We’re rockin’ boats, we’re rattling cages

And we’re setting fires

It’s the sweetest revolution and its so divine

Be the power be the woman that you know you are

In this galaxy of love you are a star

 

We’re bringing sexy back

We’re bringing sexy back

 

Not about what you wear, your hair

Not a mother not a role you gotta be

It’s not your age, your size, it’s in your eyes

Not your daughter, not your sister

Don’t wanna be

Not your baby girl, not just a lover.

Not a role you gotta be

 

Somethin' to say

Been soaking up the crazy

Drinking down the lies

Got struggle in our tool kit

Protection in our eyes

Sweeping past each other

Look the other way

It’s got us separated

This old and nasty game.

 

We got so much to say

Truth or trash

What you gonna make your way

I want to look into your eyes

Don’t want to turn away.

 

When you don’t say nothin’

What you stuck in

Everyone’s got somethin’ to say

When you speak your truth

Love is your groove

Come on sister do it your way.

 

Can we take this gently

Can we take it slow

Hurts are keeping watch yeah

Running films from long ago

Cut the drama cut the pictures

Who’s the master of this show

There’s a fire burning in you

And nothing you don’t know

 

We got so much to say

Living truth and I’m making this my way

I’m looking in your eyes

I wont turn away

 

When you don’t say nothin’

What you stuck in

Everyone’s got somethin’ to say

When you hold it back

Ooh heart attack

Everyone’s got somethin’ to say

When you speak your truth

Love is your groove

Come on sister do it your way.

 

Everyone’s got somethin’

Ooh you got somethin

Everyone’s got somethin’ to say.

 

The Angels' Song

Look what I found I got my feet on the ground and I’m here

Warm as the sun I know this is the one it’s so clear

What a playground I found the jewel in the crown it’s right here

Lovin’ the feelin’ I got it all going on right here

 

........................................

 

Look what I found I got my feet on the ground I’m right here

What a weight off my mind it was here all the time it’s so clear

Lightened up on myself and took my heart off the shelf there’s no fear

Lovin’ this groove I got a new way to move come on feel.

 

Feel my body

Feel my heart

Feel my body

Feel my heart

 

Feel your body

Feel your heart

I feel your body

I feel your heart

 

Hold Myself

Steady in the morning I hold myself

Each step of my working day yes I hold myself

I got this rhythm I’m showing how it goes

With my brothers and my sisters

In the ebb and flow

Yes I hold myself

 

Beauty and grace I’m power and truth

This is me I’m reflecting you

The world does it’s spin but I’m keeping it real

Feeling the truth I let the rest go

And I hold myself.

 

Someday’s it’s tough I stumble and fall

Losing my stuff and I’m playing small

Who’s breathing who, I can choose again

It’s simple and clear

And I hold myself.

 

 

Hold myself

Hold myself

In the morning

In my working day

On the streets now

With my brothers and my sisters

When I’m walking and when I’m talking

I’m gonna shine shine shine.

 

Steady in the morning I hold myself

Gonna let my light shine

Yes I hold myself.

 

Round & Round

Was a time we thought the earth was flat

Took a wise man to change all that

Now they’re saying time is linear

Something ‘bout this just aint clear

Anticlockwise around the sun

Fact

We’re all returning to where it began

Growin’ up we think we’re movin on

The way it is

We just start over again

 

We’re going round and round

Feet keep on moving

But we’re treading the same ground

We’re going round and round

When love is our choosing

We’re anointing the ground.

 

So we make a mess

We got to clean up

Check it close

Know whats our stuff

Its gonna hurt when we toss the blame

Waste of time living with shame.

Anticlockwise around the sun

Fact

We’re all returning to where it began

The love we make

The truth we walk

Coming closer

To who we are.

 

We’re going round and round

Feet keep on moving

But we’re treading the same ground

We’re going round and round

When love is our choosing

We’re anointing the ground.

 

Ode to Purple (Bustin' Out)

We got ourselves a mess here

Since the dawn of time

Brother against brother

Holy books, learned thinking to justify.

Just looked away for a minute

Dazed and confused

Mirror mirror on the wall who’s in there

Who’s that staring at you

Internal friction where it don’t belong

There’s been seduction by the sirens songs

Covered our hearts, blinded our eyes

Walking this earth in a freaky disguise.

 

ooh ooh

We’re Bustin Out

Ooh yeah We’re all bustin out

ooh ooh

We’re Bustin Out

oh baby come on bust it out

…………………………………………….

 

We’re waking from the big sleep

 Blinking in the light

 your politics your religions

 Prescription for our values supplied

 Speak up, Get up

 Go to work

 System fears you’re Captain Kirk

 Invested in you checkin’ out

Cashing in on your self doubt

House is empty and there’s no one there

Goldilocks is gonna steal your chair

They’ll huff and puff and blow you down

Feed you candy

Till you make no sound

 

Burn the rule book

Don’t play nice

Expression is your living right

Turn the volume up to 10

Get uncomfortable.

 

Amplify your life……
