Lyrics

Let it rain

Let it rain
Let it beat down on my shoulders
Let it pour
Let it drown me where I stand

I’m not waitin’ for the sun
To dry my pain
I’m not waitin’ for the sun
Just let it rain

Let it rain
Let it wash me to the sea
Let it drench me
Till I’m lost forever more

I’m not waitin’ for the sun
To dry my pain
I’m not waitin’ for the sun
Just let it rain

So if I’m caught out in the ocean
Out of sight of any shore
If I’m pulled beneath the surface
And if I’m lost
I’m never lost
No I’m never lost no more

So let it rain
Let it cover me in waters
Let me sink
Until I surface nevermore

I’m not waitin’ for the sun
To dry my pain
I’m not waitin’ for the sun
Just let it rain

It’s Only You

All the love you are delaying
and all the hateful words you’re saying
you’re only saying to yourself
there’s no one else
It’s only you

All the anger you’re displaying
and all the hurtful games you’re playing
you’re only paying to yourself
there’s no one else
It’s only you

Everything’s fine
No matter what you’re feeling like right now
You’re always shining brightly
With every beat your heart’s divining
So share your love it’s always shining
You’re only shining to yourself
there’s no one else
It’s only you

Everything’s fine
No matter what you’re feeling like right now
You’re always shining brightly
With every beat your heart’s divining
So share your love it’s always shining
You’re only shining to yourself
there’s no one else
It’s only you

If It Keeps You Comin’ Home

My my, it’s getting late
what you waiting for?
Why stand outside that gate?
just walk on through the door
Yeah, everything is grace
that knocks you to the floor
If it keeps you coming back home
If it keeps ya coming back home
If it keeps you coming home
If it keeps you coming home

Hey hey, what can you say
when life is not a breeze
Some days you feel ok
Some days you gonna scream
But everything is grace
that brings you to your knees
If it keeps you coming back home
If it keeps ya coming back home

Ya gotta get down to it
Ya gotta get down to it now
Ya know you’re not bound to it
You know you’re not bound
Home is where your heart is
Where your home is
Are you home?

My my, it’s getting late
what you waiting for?
Why stand outside that gate?
just walk on through the door
Yeah, everything is grace
that knocks you to the floor

If it keeps you coming home
Yeah, everything is grace
If it keeps you coming home
Yeah, everything is grace
If it keeps you coming home
Yeah, everything is grace

Weightless

I used to be a dreamer
but now that seems so far away
and when I tried to redeem myself
it never worked out anyway

Now I’m so weightless
I never even touch the ground
Yeah I’m so weightless
and nothin’s gonna bring me down

I used to be a believer
just close one eye and look away
but all those times I deceived myself
I always found the price to pay
and I didn’t wake up anyway

Now I’m so weightless
I never even touch the ground
Yeah I’m so weightless
and nothin’s gonna bring me down

So give it all your lovin’
give it all yourl lovin’
give it all you lovin’
give it all your love

I used to be a dreamer
but now that seems so far away

Cause I’m so weightless
I never even touch the ground
Yeah I’m so weightless
and nothin’s gonna bring me down
And findin’ this is so profound

Ordinary Life

Whispers of unknown origin called my name
and I followed where nobody ever goes
Risks I took to find what this ordinary mind
seemed to beckon from within to come alive

There’s only life now ordinary life
There’s only life now ordinary
Ordinary life

Music of the spheres danced inside my atmosphere
singing gently songs of love for me to hear
With words that seemed so old,
almost ancient but somehow known
just forgotten in my lost careening years

There’s only life now ordinary life
There’s only life now ordinary
Ordinary life

Once upon a day
I believed I separated
apart from everyone and everything
But now those memories fade
Just a colorless parade
Lost beliefs now turned to gray
and silencing

There’s only life now ordinary life
There’s only life now ordinary
Ordinary life
There’s only life now ordinary life
There’s only life now ordinary
Ordinary life

I Don't Mind

If you’re feeling some uncertainty
the wind is blowing you across a cruel sea
If the world seems an absurdity
And you never believe and you can conceive that you will ever be free

Everything must change
And so it is
Nothing stays the same

If you ask me why

I don’t mind, what is
No, I don’t mind, it’s just this
That I don’t mind, what is
Who am I to mind?

If your tears fall down like rain tonight
if your head is feeling full like it’s in an endless fight
If your fears should overwhelm your light
and you feel that the love, the beautiful love is simply out of sight

If nothing is to gain
So it is
Then nothing is to blame

If you ask me why

I don’t mind, what is
No, I don’t mind, it’s just this
That I don’t mind, what is
Who am I to mind?

If I wake up from the darkest dream
I don’t mind, what is
No, I don’t mind, it’s just this
That I don’t mind, what is
Who am I to mind?

For That I'd Give My Soul

My mind’s a mess I don’t know where to begin
I better call my priest, tell him my sins

Somebody take me by the hand
On my own two feet I won’t stand
I need someone to understand
For that I’d give my soul


My heart is achin’ yeah I feel like a dope
I need my guru, he can give me some hope

It’s time to beg now I can’t wait
My back is bent it’s never straight
I need someone to show me grace
For that I’d give my soul

For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul
For that I’d give my soul

One Moment of Air

Finally I took a peek
to see what was in front of me
It tested my humility
to question my humanity

Into a different way of seeing
Now I have found a way of being

If I take a breath I find
endless depth in open mind

One moment of air
is all I needed
To come alive and be released
As simple as breathing
Now I see
One moment of air
One moment of air

I tried to find my history
A world that only I believed
For no one else was it perceived
And no one else had been deceived


In two there is not even one
And now the lie has been undone

When I look at myself now
I find nothing here but ground

One moment of air
is all I needed
To come alive and be released
As simple as breathing
Now I see
One moment of air
One moment of air

Into a different world I’ve seen
Where nothing is what it once seemed

One moment of air
is all I needed
To come alive and be released
As simple as breathing
Now I see
One moment of air
One moment of air

Space For You

I never want to put you down
or make you feel you've lost your ground
Or convince you of what is not try
Or try to make you into someone new
No I'm just space for you

So even if connections wane
Sometimes sunny skied shed rain
But the sky above me is always blue
And here is something that you always knew
That I'm just space for you

So come inside and stay awhile
The fire's on the warmest dial
I've sensed some truths and spoken a few
Like one plus one's still one, it's never two
And I'm still space for you

It's a Beautiful World

We may kick we may scream
But we’re just trying to fulfill our dreams
We may laugh a steady stream
But we’re just falling apart at the seams

I don’t know what you’ve been through
You don’t know what I’ve been through
But we all live through our abuses
We all use the same excuses

What a beautiful world
What a beautiful world to give
What a beautiful world
What a beautiful world to live

We may lose or we may gain
We find it hard just remaining sane
We may bury all our pain
While standing firmly beneath the rain

I don’t know what you might do
You don’t know what I could do
But we all live through our nonsenses
We all face the consequences

What a beautiful world
What a beautiful world to give
What a beautiful world
What a beautiful world to live

Something Real

I’ve held fire
in my open hands
Trudged through the mire
of a promised land

But nothin’ burned me
only touched my skin
Nothin’ returned me
back to dreamin’ again

I’d be a liar
if I made demands
But since you’re gone now
I feel my empty hands

Now all I want is something real
But I’m not gonna beg or kneel to you
Baby you can make me feel myself
All I want is something real

How many chapters
passed before my eyes
Tears and raptures
pass like clouds in the sky

So much mystery
I can’t understand
Just empty history
a walk through desert sands

And since you’re gone now
it only makes it clear
That I’m just missin’
what I have held too near

Now all I want is something real
And I’m not gonna beg or steal you
Baby you can make me feel myself
All I want is something real
Now all I want is something real/
And I’m not gonna beg or kneel to you
Baby you can make me feel myself
All I want is something real

I'm Alright Now

I’ve flipped on LSD
I’ve known such ecstasy
I bet the gods demanding some release

I love the mystery
This vast eternity
I’m already free now
Can’t you see now can’t you see

That I’m alright now
I’m alright now
let it be

There’s somethin’ in the air tonight
That feels so right
And I can’t explain it
Wonder what it’s all about
Don’t ask me how
But it is

I made an effigy
Of my own misery
I begged for understanding won’t you please

Unmitigated schemes
Pathetic as it seems
I was only faking
Now I’m waking from that dream

And I’m alright now
I’m alright now
let it be
Yeah I’m alright now

There’s somethin’ in the air tonight
That feels so right
And I can’t explain it
Wonder what it’s all about
Don’t ask me how
To attain it
There’s somethin’ in the air tonight
That feels so right
And I can’t explain it
Wonder what it’s all about
Don’t ask me how
To attain it

But I’m alright now
I’m alright now
let it be
I’m alright now
I’m alright now
let it be
I’m alright now

Brotha Man!

Brotha man, where are you goin'
You've been runnin' round
for way too long now

Brotha man, these seeds your sowin'
They're gonna bring you home
but don't you worry how

So hold your weary head up high
And if you feel your gonna lose your mind
Turn your face up to the sky, the sky
Brotha man you're gonna fly

Brotha man, this wind's still blowin'
Let it take you where
your feet won't touch the ground

So hold your weary head up high
And if you feel your gonna lose your mind
Turn your face up to the sky, the sky
Brotha man you're gonna fly

Brotha man, this wind's still blowin'
Let it take you where
your feet won't touch the ground

Ooh brotha man!

Mystery is a Calling

Mystery is a calling
Can you hear it?
Allegorically speaking
Can you feel it?

You may run
From the rain
But you can’t hide no more

Take the fast train to nowhere
Will you ride it?
Alabaster and snowflakes
Just abide as it

You may cry
From the pain
Of love that dies no more

Everybody's the Sun

Where's all this love and understanding when all we do
is kill each other over ideas?
Like I 'm a Christian you're a Muslim I'm a man you're a woman
but that ain't for real.

Evolution's in your mind
The revolution's going down in this lifetime

There's no political or social or religious solution
so many have tried.
We're simply in a wrong vision the only this to do is quit
believing our lies.

Evolution's in your mind
The revolution's going down in this lifetime

Everybody's the Sun
Everybody is everyone
Everybody's the Sun
That's what this song is about

Where's all this love and understanding when all we do
is fill each other up with our fears?
Like I'm American so you must be the enemy
but this is simply how it appears.

Evolution's in your mind
The revolution's going down in this lifetime

Everybody's the Sun
Everybody is everyone
Everybody's the Sun
Everybody's the only one
Everybody's the Sun
Everybody's the Sun

Only Human

Look at everybody runnin' round
but inside just an empty feeling
We will try about anything
cause all we really want
is just to feel good

We try to hide
but we betray
that we're only human anyway

Now I have made a hundred
no a thousand big mistakes
and I can feel them
They live inside me day and night
there's nothing I can do
but try to free them

The only way I can explain
is that I'm only human anyway
Only human

I never meant to let you feel alone
and never realized you'd miss me
And now you've made it clear
that what you need is something
I have not been giving

Now I can't make
you want to stay
Because you're only human anyway

And I can't change
the world today
Because I'm only human anyway

Only human
Only human

I Won't Think That it Isn't Love/Our Beating Hearts are Fine

I want you to know right now
what I’m thinking of
Oh won’t you hear me when I say

That if you say your free
I won’t think that it isn’t love
No, I don’t want to put you in a cage
That I made for me
I’d rather let you be


And if you go right now
I won’t think that it isn’t love
maybe you just need to go your way

And I don’t want to hold on now
to something that needs to fly above
Cause then I’d put myself inside a cage
that I made for you.
And that simply just won’t do


Our beating hearts are fine
Our beating hearts are fine
Our beating hearts are fine
Our beating hearts are fine


Yeah I want you to know right now
what I’m thinking of
So will you hear me when I say

That if you say your free
I won’t think that it isn’t love no no
No I don’t want to put you in that cage
I’d rather let you be
I’d rather set you free

Nothing Stands but Love

I was such a wayward one
In a pace and on the run
And then I found a place to hide
But it was on the other side

Of love
I went looking for love

So I climbed a mountain, saw the view
But that just made me more confused
When I finally landed back on ground
I couldn’t hear a single sound

But love
I went looking for something grand
and found nothing stands
But love

Ooh ooh Ah

Once I sought a sacred place
Where I could always be embraced
Then I would never feel a lack
Cause I’d just fill my empty sack

With love
but it was only
a golden strand
because nothing stands
but love


I thought love
would pass through my open hands
like the finest sand
or a thinnest strand
but then nothing stands
no nothing stands
But then nothing stands
no nothing stands
but love

Ooh ooh Ah

Hey now…I’m alive

We’re always lookin’ for someone to make it feel like we’re together
We search the whole world to find somethin’ that’s going to make us feel better

But I say hey now
I’m alive
Yeah I say hey now
I’m alive

That’s what I’m talkin' about’

Bla bla bla bla bla bla
Bla bla bla bla bla bla
Bla bla bla bla bla bla
Just keeps you lost in your mind
Bla bla bla bla bla bla
Bla bla bla bla bla bla
Bla bla bla bla bla bla
Just keeps you lost in your mind
Lost in your mind


We want the money the prestige a constant reminder that we’re fine
Don’t want the unknown the mystery it scares us right out of our poor minds

But I say hey now
I’m alive
Yeah I say hey now
I’m alive

We’re always lookin’ for someone to make it feel like we’re together
We search the whole world to find somethin’ that’s going to make us feel better

But I say hey now
I’m alive
Yeah I say hey now
I’m alive
But I say hey now
I’m alive

Unchain Your Heart

There is a time you need to sow
And a time to settle down and let things grow

A time of energy and pain
A time of peace when you enjoy your gains
And a time to look within and break your chains


Unchain your heart
and all the love inside you
will prevail
Unchain your heart
let all the love inside you
set you a sail

There is a window to your soul
It’s here and now, already what you know

It’s always open, it’s never closed
It’s always you already, unopposed

Unchain your heart
and all the love inside you
will prevail
Unchain your heart
let all the love inside you
set you a sail

Already Gone

You may want to think it out
You can hold it down or cry about it
But you don't even need to understand

Cause it's already gone

You can run in circles all around it
crucify yourself about it
But you don't need someone to hold your hand

Cause it's already gone
Already

And I will love you
Cause I still love you

So satisfy your need to know
until you never need to show it
cause even if you build it up in sand

It's already gone
Already

And I will love you
Cause I still love you

It's already gone
It's already gone
It's already gone
It's already gone
It's already gone
It's already gone

Just Like the Sky

You know you can say to me
anything about anything
Or you don't have to say a word
If you're disturbed
by what's going on inside you
ya know You can just let it go

You may cry or feel uptight
but you are just like the sky
And you've got nothing to hide

Maybe you've been in a mood
feelin' blue
what you gonna do
or lately you've been kinda slow
so mellow
you only feel like laying' low

Let it show Let your tears overflow
You may find as your tears subside
that you are just like the sky
And you've got nothing to hide

You're so alive
Won't you wake up and fly

You know you can come to me
with anything
and I will never find you
Anything but beautiful
so beautiful
you are such a beauty
Now and forever
So just let it shine


You may find
You're always fine
You are just like the sky
And you've got nothing to hide
Yeah you've got nothing to hide

You always come to me

Morning came I woke up
You were lyin’ next to me
I’m always amazed to find you here
So I rubbed my eyes to see

Cause I have
Set you free
And now you always come to me
You always come to me

I never try to hold you
And keep you for myself
This life is yours so mold it
And let it fit you well

Cause I have
Set you free
And now you always come to me
You always come to me

In the twilight hours I’ll kiss you
When midnight comes I’ll whisper to you
And when you’re not here I’ll miss you
But if you’re happy that’s ok

So if you need to stray
Or try to make things clear
Remember what I say
You’re always welcome here

Cause I have
Set you free

And now you always come to me
You always come to me
Now you always come to me
You always come to me

If I had the sun

If I had the sun
I would light your day
Clear the fray
To show your way
If you called me I would run
If I had the sun

If I had the sun
I would melt your heart
With a golden dart
Make your sorrows part
The night would never come
If I had the sun

But how can I give you
what you already are?
And where can I take you
while you’re riding on a shooting star?

If I had the sun
I would warm your skin
Take your troubles in
Even burn your sins
My light would always stun
If I had the sun

The night would never come
If I had the sun

If I had the sun
If I had the sun

Nothing At All

Yeah I popped a lot of pills
wasted a lot of money in my time
I thought I needed all those thrills
none of it fulfilled me in my mind

Was there really ever a yesterday?
and did I fall down on my knees to pray?
Or did everything just fall away
and leave me nothing really more to say

Now I want
Now I need
Now I have
Nothing at all
Now I want
Now I need
Now I am
Nothing at all

You know I read a lot of books
met a lot of crooks in my time
I had some petty little blisses
and hid in the abysses in my mind

I thought I'd finally found a piece of the sun
but it was only golded colored mud
and thought I'd run run run and I'd run
but when my head hit the ground
there was only a thud

Now I want
Now I need
Now I have
Nothing at all
Now I want
Now I need
Now I am
Nothing at all

I thought I'd finally found a piece of the sun
but it was only golded colored mud
and thought I'd run run run and I'd run
but when my head hit the ground
there was only a thud

Now I want
Now I need
Now I have
Nothing at all
Now I want
Now I need
Now I am
Nothing at all

Now I want
Now I need
Now I have
Nothing at all
Now I want
Now I need
Now I am
Nothing at all

You won’t lose your way

You said your winter had arrived
Your life was filled with empty shrines
That you were all alone
And you were turned to stone

But take another chance tonight
The morning brings a different light
And a different kind of home
One you have never known

So why you wanna waste your time
There’s only trouble in your mind

Now you won’t lose your way anymore
You won’t lose your way anymore
Now you won’t lose your way anymore
You won’t lose your way anymore
When you find that there’s nothin’ really to lose anyway
There’s nothin there to lose

They say the path’s an endless land
Just keep your head above the sand
And follow where we lead
But you just always bleed

So take a risk and you might find
You’ve left your sorry world behind
One you don’t even own
A different seed is sown

So why you wanna hold on tight
There’s only trouble when you fight

Now you won’t lose your way anymore
You won’t lose your way anymore
Now you won’t lose your way anymore
You won’t lose your way anymore
When you find that there’s nothin’ really to lose anyway
There’s nothin really to lose

anyway

There’s nothin’

Carry On, Love is Dawning

You rely on your memories
they're a mountain you scale
You believe in your dreams but
your dreams always fail you
So count on the only thing
that won't let you down
You're already holy
You just need to

Carry on
Love is dawning
This love is dawning for you

Carry on
Love is dawning
This love is dawning for you

Speak a language that heals you
and shines from your eyes
The one who reveals you
is waiting inside
The shadows concealing you
are already gone
There's nothing to change now
you just need to

Carry on
Love is dawning
This love is dawning for you

Carry on
Love is dawning
This love is dawning for you

In the morning
when there's nothing left
there'll be nothing left
to hide

And in the morning
what you're gonna find
has been always there
inside you
always inside
you

Carry on
Love is dawning
This love is dawning for you

Carry on
Love is dawning
This love is dawning for you

Carry on
Carry on
