In My Arms

Performed by Jon Foreman

Lyrics:

Here
My dear
This is where
We’ll shake the nightmare free
I dream
To hold you in my arms
I dream
To hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…
I think I figured it out
We need to be together
Like the shore and the sea
We are not one thing
We’re drawn here together
My ocean and me…
I dream
To hold you in my arms
I dream
To hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…
Love, we sleep apart
For the last time
For the last time
I dream
To hold you in my arms
I dream
To hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…
Wide awake
In my arms…
Wide awake
In my arms
Wide awake
In my arms…

From Deep Within

Image

 “…. all progress must come from deep within and cannot be pressed or hurried by anything. Everything is gestation and then bringing forth. To let each impression and each germ of a feeling come to completion wholly in itself, in the dark…. and await with deep humility and patience the birth-hour of a new clarity: that alone is living the artist’s life, in understanding as in creating.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke~

Soul Shroud

ImageThe emptiness of sorrow

Has shrouded my soul

Leaving me cold

As the face of Death.

Between Us

Written and performed by: Peter Bradley Adams

Lyrics:

Hey stranger or may I call you my own
I know I don’t know you, but there’s somewhere I’ve seen you before
Whatever your name is, whatever you do
There’s nothing between us I’m willing to lose

Just call me if ever our paths may collide
I want you to call me under these darkened sky’s
Whoever you love, whoever you kiss
The wandering between us I’m willing to miss

Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

There’s comfort, comfort in things we believe
Other than danger, wanting the things I can’t see

Wherever you live now, wherever you walk
There’s distance between us I’m willing to cross
Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

Hey stranger or may I call you my own
I know I don’t know you, but there’s somewhere I’ve seen you before.

My Heart

Image

 

“My heart, aflame in love, set afire every heart that came in touch with it. My heart has been rent and joined again. My heart has been broken and again made whole. My heart has been wounded and healed again. A thousand deaths my heart has died, and thanks be to love, it lives yet. I went through hell and saw there love’s raging fire, and I entered heaven illumined with the light of love.”   ~Hazrat Inayat Khan~
