Track Name: Rhythm of the Soul
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Sometimes I get so afraid
Of the made-up world I made.
But when I trust inside,
There's no need to hide my heart.

2nd Verse:
Cause I have suffered far too long.
By thinking I could know for myself what's right, and what's wrong.
But now I'm learning to laugh
At all those games I played in the past.

Chorus:
Cause now I'm living by the rhythm of the Soul, and it's Calling me Home.
I'm giving up believing that I really know anything at all.
I'm forgiving myself for being afraid and running away.
I'm living by the rhythm of the Soul, and I trust I will be shown...
Which way to go, which to flow, which way to know...
Who I am, and Who I've always been.

3rd Verse:
There’s a secret in your heart,
That call tell you Who you are.
And if I forgive you,
then I may know that secret too.

And now I’m… CHORUS

Bridge:
Well it can be so easy, when I stop making it so hard.
When I just trust the river, it gently carries me along to the sound of my favorite Song.
Mmmm...

4th Verse:
So if you sometimes feel afraid...
of this made-up world we made.
Then you can trust inside,
and you'll know everything's okay.

Ending Chorus:
And now we're living by the rhythm of the Soul, and it's Calling us Home.
We're giving up believing that we've ever known anything at all.
We're forgiving ourselves for being afraid and running away.
We're living by the rhythm of the Soul, and we're on our way back Home.
Track Name: If Not Now, Then When?
LYRICS:

Verse 1:
Everyone I see is a thought.
A thought of what I used to believe
I thought I was alone and separate
Until You told me it was just a dream

Chorus:
And it takes no time if I want to see it;
If I want to stop feeling this pain.
I don't have to keep on falling over,
If I just let You in my heart again.
And if not now, then when?

Verse 2:
I thought I was a symbol of shame
When I forgot Your Name
I thought I was alone and different
Until You told me that I'm still the same

Chorus 2:
And it takes no time if I want to hear it;
If I want to stop feeling this pain.
I don't have to keep on falling over,
If I just let You in my heart again.
And if not now, then when?

Bridge:
If not now, what then?
I know the pain will never end
If I don't let You in my heart again.
So if not now, then when?
If not now, what then?
I know I'll finally be at Peace.
When I just let You in my heart again.
So if not now, then when?

Short instrumental solo

Chorus 3:
And it takes no time if I want to see it;
If I want to stop feeling this pain.
I don't have to keep on falling over,
If I just let You in my heart again.
And if not now, then when?

If not now... then when?
Track Name: Already Home
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
I have tried to find my own way back Home.
But I've learned it's pointless without a Guide.
I lost my way in the woods of confusion in space and time.
I lost my self inside my mind.
In my mind... in my mind.
But fortunately it's just in my mind.

2nd Verse:
Love is the only Answer to all the questions I have tried
answering all by myself, which only made me tired.
So tired...
I tried to do it all myself, and now I'm tired.

Chorus:
Cause now it's not so easy to lie to myself anymore.
Something's Calling me back to Who I was before.
I cannot keep running away and relying on myself alone.
All I've got to do now is stop, and remember...
I'm already Home.
I'm never alone.
And though I've traveled in dreams, I've never left my Home.

3rd Verse:
Well I am addicted to a story... the story of “my life”.
I gave up Everything I had... just to be right.
To be right...
But now I know I'd rather be wrong... and live in the Light!

Ending Chorus:
Cause now it's not so easy to lie to myself anymore.
Something's Calling me back to Who I was before.
I cannot keep running away and relying on myself alone.
All I've got to do now is stop, and remember...
I'm already Home.
I'm never alone.
And though I've traveled in dreams, I've never left my Home.

I've never left Home.
And thought I've traveled in dreams, I've never left my Home.
Track Name: Heaven is Perfect
LYRICS:

Heaven is perfect.
Heaven is perfect right Now.
Heaven is perfect.
And Heaven is Here, right Now.

Everything else that I seem to see...
It doesn't really matter 'cause it's got no Reality
All I really want is to remember Heaven within.

Spirit is perfect
My Spirit is perfect right Now.
Spirit is perfect.
And Spirit is What I Am Now.

Everything else that I seem to be.
It doesn't really matter 'cause it's not my Reality.
All I really want is to remember the Spirit I Am.

And I don't have to fall from Grace ever again.
I can just relax and listen to Your Voice, Beloved Friend.
I hear You Calling me...
Back to the Home I never left, singing...

Heaven is perfect.
Heaven is perfect right Now.
Heaven is perfect.
And Heaven is Here, right Now.

Everything else that I seem to see...
It doesn't really matter 'cause it's got no Reality
All I really want is to remember Heaven within.

'Cause Heaven is perfect.
Yeah Heaven is perfect right Now.
Heaven is perfect.
And Heaven is Here, right Now.
Spirit is perfect.
My Spirit is perfect right Now.
Spirit is perfect.
And Spirit is What I Am Now.
Heaven is perfect... and Heaven is Here, right Now.
Track Name: Let Life Unfold
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Sometimes it's like the sun is shining, and I can feel it all day.
And other times it seems no matter how I try, nothing's gonna go my way.
And I don't know why things go the way they go anyway.
But that's okay.

2nd Verse:
Cause something tells me Life can offer only Love, endless and free.
And when I'm afraid, ashamed, and suffering, it's only 'cause I'm thinking 'bout me.
I look in the mirror, and I know it's self-deception to believe...
that I am the image I see. Cause...

Chorus:
I feel... the river inside.
I keep on trying to hold on to the branches on the side.
But when I let go... deep down I know,
That everything will be alright if I just go with the flow and let...life unfold.
A simple piece of wisdom, that I was once told.
It means giving up the illusion that I am in control.
Well I can let go... and you can let go... and let... life unfold.

3rd Verse:
Well you can take me anywhere... I got nothing to lose.
And even if it seems my life is on the line... I'll know it's only just a ruse.
I won't be fooled anymore.
Because there's nothing that I want more... than to...

REPEAT CHORUS

We're floating on a river going Home.
No need, no need, no need to control.
Well I can let go... and we can let go... and let... life unfold.
Track Name: Shine Through
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
I can feel Your Love shine, shine, shine.
You gently whisper to me, “Everything is fine.”
Now all I want to do is listen to...
You tell me everything I've got to do.
To open up and let Your Love shine through...

2nd Verse:
I can see Your Face smile, smile, smile.
The time I spend with You is so worthwhile.
Now all I want to do is look at You.
And let Your Smiling Face teach me how to...
Open up and let Your Love shine through...

Bridge:
Cause I'm beginning to remember
All the Love that I once knew.
All my fear is disappearing,
As I disappear in You.

3rd Verse:
I can feel Your Love shine, shine, shine
I hear You Laughing and it heals my mind.
Now all I want to do is listen to...
Your gentle laughter teaching me how to...
Open up and let Your Love shine through.

There's nothing more that I want to do.
Than listen to Your Music teach me how to...
Open up and let Your Love shine through.
Track Name: Just Relax
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Just relax... and go slow.
There's no need to hurry, for there are no monster's chasing you.
Be still... and let go.
There's no need to worry, and there's nothing that you really need to do.

2nd Verse:
Take time... to look inside.
For I can promise you there's nothing about yourself you need to hide.
Take off the mask, and let the Light shine on...
Your innocent face... you've never done anything wrong.

Chorus:
And there's nothing scary to protect yourself from.
Your nightmares are over; you don't need to run.
Just open your eyes and see there's nothing to fear.
All of your nightmares have long disappeared.

3rd Verse:
It seems a long time ago that you dreamed you'd left Home...
And wandered outside in the cold all alone.
You tried to make due with all your substitutes.
But they could not erase the pain of forgetting the Truth.
Well it's still in your Heart, and it's still in your Soul.
Just take off your heavy armor, and let it go!
And listen to me while I sing you this song.
Your friends are all here and your nightmares are gone.

-INSTRUMENTAL SOLO-

-REPEAT CHORUS-

4th Verse:
So just relax... and go slow.
There's no need to hurry, for there are no monsters chasing you.
Right here, and right now...
You can be at peace, for only Love is all around.
Track Name: Peace of Mind
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Will you take me for a ride, I'd like to see the other side… before I go.
There's just some things I really want to know.
And will you tell me what they mean, all the strange things that I've seen... before I die?
For oh-so very long I've wondered why...
All the things that make me think, and why I always seem to sink when I try.
I only want to find some peace of mind.
A little peace of mind.

2nd Verse:
I'm a seeker on a quest, chasing what I know is best for my soul.
Trying to do the things that’ll guide me Home.

Chorus:
And I'm searching for the answers; are they floating in the air?
They say they're all inside you, but would you please show me where?
The lights that look like Heaven may blind you in the eye.
And all your deepest questions that you ask begin with “Why, why, why??”

3rd Verse:
So I've packed a couple things, and I'm going for a ride.
I'd like to take some time just to look down deep inside.
I don't know where I'm going; only know just where I've been.
Led by dreams and inspiration, I am leaving all my friends for a while... for a while.

Bridge:
I've left all my possessions for a while.
To think about the things that make me smile.
Do you remember what it was to be a child?
If we could only find all the things we've left behind
on the road that leads us to our peace of mind.

3rd Verse:
As the years are getting older,
and my wings are getting colder, I'm finding...
I find it's getting easier to fly!
And if I fly Home every day,
then I will never lose my way.
But still we find ourselves...

2nd Chorus:
…searching for the answers, are they floating in the air?
They say they're all inside you, but would you please show me where.
The lights that look like heaven... may blind you in the eye…
and all your deepest questions that you ask to find some peace of mind.
Track Name: This Disguise
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Sometimes I take myself a little bit too seriously.
I fall into the trap of thinking that I know what’s best for me.

I wanna be famous yes I wanna be loved by you.
And I still believe I know how best to make my wish come true.

But now I’m seeing I’ve been wishing on nothing but a falling star.
An empty dream that even if could come true would only stop my heart.

I know I still have got some jealousy inside.
And this dream has been a way for me to hide.
But it’s only cause I thought I was alone I put on this disguise.

Chorus:
But it’s not true… that I’m without You...
'Cause Your Heart is in my heart and my heart is in Your Heart, and I feel You moving through me. Yes, I feel You moving through.

2nd Verse:
I look into the future cause I’m scared of what could happen to me.
And I wanna keep pretending I can understand this mystery.

I know I’ve got a lot of arrogance and pride.
And this dream has been a way for me to hide.
But it’s only cause I thought I was alone I put on this disguise.

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE, THEN PLAY “EXTENDED CHORUS” BELOW.

EXTENDED CHORUS:
Yes, I feel You moving through. I feel You moving through me. I feel You moving through…

Bridge:
I’ve got to let go and be true to Who I Am
I’ve got to trust You and let You lead me by the hand…
I’ve got to let go of my arrogance and pride…
And just let You Love me; I don’t need this disguise…

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE W/ “EXTENDED CHORUS”.
Track Name: It's Only Me
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Everyone that I see… and everything I perceive… is me.
And now I’m Free.
And anytime that I believe... that somebody else is the cause of my grief,
I need... to stop and see I am deceived

Chorus:
Cause it’s only me. I am the dreamer of this dream.
I just gotta learn to see... it’s only me.
And when I’m afraid, it’s only of thoughts that I have made.
There’s no one outside to blame… it’s only me. And I am Free.

2nd Verse:
Everything that I perceive… are the projections of my false memory.
There’s no need to ever take any of it seriously.
Cause all that’s ever seemed to be of time was just a foolish, fictional storyline.
But I’m learning that it never really happened... except in my mind!

REPEAT CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL SOLO

3rd Verse:
And everyone that I see… is just a part of myself who longs to be free…
and I know in my heart, yes I know in my heart we can be!
Cause nothing’s in the way… except an insane thought that says I’m full of shame. But forgiving You is showing me the Innocence in me. And I'm Free!

I'm Free… in the innocence I see.

Bridge 1:
Yes, I’m free to love and I’m free to shine, I’m free to share this Peace of Mind
'Cause I’m one with you and you’re one with me and we share same Soul eternally. But I fell asleep and I dreamed this dream and now I’ve got to take responsibility… finally.

REPEAT CHORUS

Free… in the innocence… I see…

End on 1st Verse (soft):
Cause everyone that I see… and everything I perceive… is me… and I am Free.
Track Name: The Silent Song
LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Can you hear... the Song... playing silently everywhere.
It's hard to hear... if you're listening only with your ears.

And can you see... the Light... shining endlessly through your mind.
It's hard to find... if you're looking only with your eyes.

And can you smile... the Smile... that lightens up the world for a while.
But don't try... it will come naturally when you're Inspired by the Love inside.

2nd Verse:
Can you see... that we're imprisoned only by our beliefs.
And we're free... anytime that we choose to be.

If you take my hand... we'll rise together from this foreign land.
And see... that we never need to think nor plan.
We must only decide... we'll be happy once we've made up our mind.

Bridge:
Walking faster only slows you down.
Just be patient, keep your feet on the ground.

3rd Verse:
Can you feel the Love? It's all around to help you rise above...
All the pain and fear you've been dreaming of.
It's alright to just let go and simply fall in Love.

4th Verse:
Can you hear... the Song... playing silently everywhere.
It's right here... singing softly that there's nothing to fear.
