The Child (Inside)

Who’s that calling?
Who’s that who can show the way?
The child inside
The child inside

Who’s that calling?

Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho nehe yehe ha
Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho ne ho neheya heyeh

Who’s that dying?
Trying for a space
In the cage you call your life
Who’s that crying?
Crying out just what it is
You’ve thrown away

The child inside, its the
The child who lives still in your eyes

Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho nehe yehe ha
Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho ne ho neheya heyeh

Who’s that dancing?
Laughing, crying, living
Every day by day by day by day
The child inside
Its the child who lives still in your eyes

Who’s that dancing?
Laughing, crying, living
Every day by day by day by day
The child inside
Its the child who lives still in your eyes

Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho nehe yehe ha
Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho ne ho neheya heyeh

Secret of the sun is in your eyes

Take the power from your dreams and fly
Children know it’s magic
That makes the world go round

Secret of the sun is in your eyes
Take the power from your dreams and fly
Children know it’s magic
That makes the world go round

Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho nehe yehe ha
Ne ho ne yehe hiyo

Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho nehe yehe ha
Ne ho ne yehe hiyo
Ne ho ne ho neheya heyeh

Who’s that calling?
Who’s that who can show the way?
(Inside)
The child inside
The child inside

Torn between you and the sky

I feel bruised from the inside vibes
I’m on the outside of this beautiful day
And the road that winds it’s way through the diamond lakes
Forests, hills, and seagulls, belong to you on the inside vibes
I’m on the outside of your world

I’m so surprised, shocked, confused
Caught between the topsoil and the stones is like my mind
As I run and hide across it’s surface
I’m looking for a way to heal this jagged heart

Torn between you and the sky

(Torn between you and the sky)

Torn between you and the sky
Torn between you and the sky
Touching where the tearing is, out on the edge
Tasting for my truth
Torn between you and the sky
Caught between you and the sky

I’m charging forward, crashing through the thickets in my way
As I search the hills, the roads between, worlds unseen
Anything to calm my stormy panic as I finally get
Just how much I love you

I remember the beach, you on the rocks

I’m running away to find myself, to calm the tears in my heart
Touch the source of life that’s all that keeps me sane
When I look back to see your body glowing in the sun
Are you leaving now? You’re tearing me up

(Dia daya dum, daya dia daya dum, dia daya dum dayum dayum…)

Torn between you and the sky

Torn between you and the sky

I’m calling you
Touching where the tearing is, out on the edge
Tasting for my truth
Torn between you and the sky
Caught between you and the sky
Meet me at the edges beyond the Maya

(Torn between you and the sky)

Dia daya dum, daya dia daya dum, dia daya dum dayum dayum
Dia daya dum, daya dia daya dum, dia daya dum dayum dum dum dum

Touching where the tearing is, out on the edge
Tasting for my truth
Torn between you and the sky
Caught between you and the sky
Meet me at the edges beyond the Maya

Torn between you and the sky
Torn between you and the sky
Torn between you and the sky

Caught between you and the sky
Meet me at the edges beyond the Maya

I’m so surprised, shocked, confused caught between the topsoil and the stones is like my mind
Run and hide
I’m so surprised, shocked, confused caught between the topsoil and the stones is like my mind
Run and hide
I’m so surprised, shocked, confused caught between the topsoil and you

Virgin

Virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya – virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaaaya

Too many times betrayed abandoned to a world
That broken minds had made no one to hear your call
You spin yourself a greenhouse from the glass of your desire
The filtered sun you drink its light but not its fire

So tell me
What is the colour of your dream?
This life is yours to choose
Virgin wilting on the alter of the temple of your doom
What is the colour of your fear?
This death is yours to choose
Virgin wilting on the alter of the temple of your doom

Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya – virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya

Your petal colours paint a silent sirens call
The substitutes line up wait for the knife to fall
A flower can’t fly free its stem a link to life to cut it is to die

You love and fear the knife

So tell me

What is the colour of your fear?
This death is your to choose
Virgin wilting on the alter of the temple of your doom
What is the colour of your hope?
This dream is yours to choose
Virgin wilting on the alter of the temple of your doom, doom

Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya – virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya

(owa owa-o virgin, virgin)
(owa virgin, virgin, owa)

Doom, doom – virgin, virgin

Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya – virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya – virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya (fly free)
Hum denaya denaya (fly free) – virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya – virgin, virgin – hum denaya denaaaaya – take the risk and fly free

Free

Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya denaya
Hum denaya denaya naya – virgin, virgin- hum denaya denaya — virgin, virgin
Hum denaya denaya naya, hum denaya

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman
Oh, I guess I’m preaching again
Trying to be big cos I feel so small
Trying to win your favor by pulling you up
From the hole you never were in

Oh, when at last I open my eyes
Do you think, do you think
You could let me touch you
I can’t be your Wonder Woman
Me and my fear will both be here
When I take you on

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your Wonder Woman

But I could get lost in your skin
Reach for the warmth beyond illusion
Instead of this game that we know is the same
That we’ve played since we chose to begin

O, when at last you open your eyes
Do you think, do you think
I could let you touch me
I can’t be your Wonder Woman
But say is it true, that if I don’t move, the earth will?

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your Wonder Woman

But oh between us, paper thin
The walls of illusion are crumbling
If we hold still, if we don’t move, the earth will

The sound of your voice
And your breath on my face

Keeping me locked into time and space
Say is it true that if we don’t move, the earth will?

Aaa-ooooha
Wonder Woman
Oohh

I can’t be your
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your Wonder Woman

But say is it true, that if I don’t move, the earth will?

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
I can’t be your Wonder Woman
I can’t be your Wonder Woman

Harbour Song

Oooh oooh oooh ooooh
The sun is sinking
Your face is gold
Your smile is resting
But your eyes are old
Your head is silhouetted
As the sky turns grey
Sand in my hair now
At the end of this day

Pain is forgotten
Fear gone away
Two hearts more open
At the end of this day
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

Hands on your strings now
Hands in my hair
Tomorrow is for leaving
Tonight is to share

Your face is shadowed, but
Your music’s strong
Head gently tilted
We write this song

Pain is forgotten
Fear gone away
Two hearts more open
At the end of this day
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

 

The moon is waning, but
The stars are high
A time for resting
Hands touch in the night
Out in the harbour
The waves slow
Soft as your breathing
Your face so close

Pain is forgotten
Fear gone away

Two hearts more open
At the end of this day
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

Our feet have walked on
The sands of pain
And with the dawning
We’ll walk again, but now

Pain is forgotten
Fear gone away
Two hearts more open
At the end of this day
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

Into the night

Into the night
Into the night I fly with you
Into the night I will fly

Va-deham-bedeh-ha-nehiyo
Veneha-bedene-hahoneyhi

This is just a simple song
It’s really quite personal
But I’ll pour it in anyway

Into the night (into the night)
Into the night I fly with you
Into the night I will fly
Out from the light (out from the light)
In shadows, I will follow you
Into the night I will fly

Va-deham-bedeh-ha-nehiyo
Veneha-bedene-hahoneyhi

I want you in my tears
Ocean full
Hollow, hollow like this room
Filled with strange faces

Into the night (into the night)
Into the night I fly with you
Into the night I will fly
Out from the light (out from the light)
In shadows, I will follow you
Into the night I will fly

Va-deham-bedeh-ha-nehiyo
Veneha-bedene-hahoneyhi

I want you

All the while I know
You’re free, free to go alone
Into the night I go (Out of the light, in shadows I will follow you)
Into the night I go (Out of the light, in shadows I will)

Into the night, in shadows I will follow you
Into the night, in shadows I will follow you

Into the night (into the night)
Into the night I fly with you
Into the night I will fly
Out from the light (out from the light)
In shadows, I will follow you
Into the night I will fly

Karmic Book

Just another adventure in the turning  pages of life
Then it sucked me in
Spat me out in pieces all over the floor
Then ate me up again

Into this karmic book of life we fell
Let it colour our dreams
Somewhere in the pages
I think I lost my way home
I forgot it’s not always what it seems

This karmic book has been quite a ride, my friend
(Tell me is it really over?)
As the last page turns and we find it’s time
To face the end
(Tell me what will happen)
This karmic book has been quite a ride
Been quite a ride
(Step outside pack it all up let your dreams take flight)
Turn the page, let’s go home

Home

Took a look at the superheroes inside
But the masks all fell down
Something here that pencil and paint can’t describe
I can leave any time
I believe that I can reach for new life

This karmic book has been quite a ride, my friend
(Tell me is it really over?)
As the last page turns and we find it’s time
To face the end
(Tell me what will happen)
This karmic book has been quite a ride
Been quite a ride
(Step outside pack it all up let your dreams take flight)
Turn the page, let’s go home

Home

(Home)
(Home)

This karmic book has been quite a ride, my friend
(Tell me is it really over?)
As the last  page turns and we find it’s time
To face the end

(Tell me what will happen)
This karmic book has been quite a ride
As the last  page turns and we find it’s time
To face the end

This karmic book has been quite a ride

Been quite a ride

Turn the page, let’s go home

Let the Light In

I’m so tired of these lonely Saturday nights
(Lonely nights)
I’m wondering if I’m ever gonna get it right

I’m gonna change the way that I feel
And let the light in
Let the light in
Take away this shield
(Shield)

Seems I’ve walked a million miles in the dark
(So far to the nearest star; I’m alone)
Walking circles, treading dark grooves, stuck in my past
(Alone in my heart)

I’m gonna change the way that I feel
And let the light in
Let the light in

Take away this shield
And let the light in
Let the light in

I’m tired of walking lonely
I’m tired of hearing only
Echoes from the underground

Somewhere a star is shining
Somewhere to light is rising to the dawn, to the dawn
I’m shining

I’m shining

I’m gonna change
And let the light in
Let the light in

Take away this shield
Feel
Let the light, the light shine
Through
Feel
Let the light be in me
Real

In me
Real

Rain

Walking
Lost in the rainy season
Water drips
From the vines
I seek the places
The Earth tries to hide

Ancient voices
Sing to me
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha
Ancient voices
Sing to me
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha

Can you see the light in the desert?
(Taste, taste the dust in the wind)
It’s dancing like a rainbow
Bayethe, bayethe mnthwana
Voices chant the sound of thunder
Waah, ooh ooh ooh ousa
Ooh ooh ooh ousa
And rain
Rain

Ancient voices
Sing to me
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha
Ancient voices
Sing to me
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha
Ah heeya na

Baya qkuma, baya qkuma
Basa qkuma, basa qkuma
Baya qkuma, baya qkuma
Basa qkuma, basa qkuma
Baya qkuma, baya qkuma

Ancient voices
Sing to me
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha (Lost)

Sing to me (I turn for home)
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha
Ah heya na

Sing to me
Neya-ha yeheho neheho neheho ho-u-ha
Ah heya na

Strike Out Against the Tide

All the power and the passion and the glory and the grace
Where has it all gone?
All the dreams worn down to sad and lonely fantasies
What would you do if you ever ever ever could find it all again?
You don’t know so you go with the flow that sucks you
Right down the drain
oo-oo-oo-huoo

All these lives so bright packed in too tight and
Choked down by weeds
Such a desperate world where it’s just all
Beat em or join em
Is this kinda decay really truly ok or do you
Want to break free?
It’s a long hard fight till you start to get it right
And you know it’s gonna to be

Swimming against the tide
Leaping against the chains
Playing against the game
It’s gonna be tempting to
Turn back round again
Pushing on through the pain
Pushing the fear aside
With nowhere left to hide
Nothing will be the same again
Nothing will ever be the same
o-huwa-ooowa-huwao

If you swim against it strong enough
It could turn around
Don’t have to let it drag you down
Suck you down till you drown
I know it looks hard, too hard to do
But not impossible
You know it’s only logical
To live what you believe
You can achieve the improbable, unstoppable, invincible
Defying the conventional
Original

[Strike out]
You are holding the  umbilical of all that’s ever been
And will be
[Strike out]
 So
Strike out against the tide
Leap out into the void
Believe it until its true
Live it until it comes to you
You won’t need a place to hide
Cos you can find your way back home again
Strike out against the tide
Leap out into the void
Believe it until it’s true
Live it until it comes to you
 ooo- oh-ah-oh

How can you call it living life
When it’s more like doing time?
 Not  to live while you’re alive
Is the ultimate and only crime
It’s so close now you can taste it, taste it
Not let gonna let you waste it
While you could spin it free 
Let it be, let it be
Take the leap along with me
Time to get started on building and living a real life
And forever be done with this just doing time, it’s so
Close now you can taste it, taste it
You gonna be amazed by it
Once we set it free
Let it be, let it be, so be it and let it be

Strike out against the tide
Break out beyond the chains
You won’t need a place to hide
Cos you can find your way back home again
Strike out against the tide
Leap out into the void

Believe it until it’s true

Beautiful

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beneath the pain, beneath the shame
Behind the secrets that you hide
Don’t wanna know what else is there
Much safer if it’s undefined
So now you hope you’ve got it clear
All figured out and underlined, but
Behind the mask of your despair
There’s something bright, alive inside

You cannot help but be beautiful (you cannot help)
You cannot help but be beautiful (can only be)
You cannot help but be so, so beautiful
You cannot help but be beautiful

Awooo awooo wandeya (beautiful)
Awooo awooo waaah
Awooo awooo wandeya
Awooo awooo waaah
This Armageddon that you fear
It’s getting close it’s drawing near
But even if it happens now
Who says it has to happen here?

You cannot help but be beautiful (you cannot help)
You cannot help but be beautiful (can only be)
You cannot help but be so, so beautiful
You cannot help but be beautiful

Awooo awooo wandeya (beautiful)
Awooo awooo waaah
Awooo awooo wandeya
Awooo awooo waaah

Inside
Behind your mind
You can’t be anything else but so

Not anything but so
Awooo awooo wandeya
Awooo awooo waaah (beautiful)
Awooo awooo wandeya
Awooo awooo waaah

You cannot help but be beautiful (you cannot help)
You cannot help but be beautiful (can only be)
You cannot help but be so, so beautiful
You cannot help but be beautiful

You cannot help but be beautiful (you cannot help)
You cannot help but be beautiful (can only be)
You cannot help but be so, so beautiful
You cannot help but be beautiful
Awooo awooo wandeya (beautiful)
Awooo awooo waaah
Awooo awooo naya nada
Awooo awooo waaah

Butterfly Peepl

Butterfly Peepl – Qkumba Zoo
Like one of her diamonds waiting in the dirt
Impatient to be cut and to heal
She waits with truth in her infinite womb
Tickles our dreams with her friend the moon
The moon

Into the stars that sail her sky
She sweeps the tears we refused
Deep inside she knows our truth
We’ve come this time to be

The ones who make it through the cocoon
The ones who learn to fly
Butterfly people with infinite wings
With colours to paint the old night sky

We wake up inside the dream
(Inside the dream)
Trying to learn to read the signs
Reaching into remembering
We come this time to be

The ones who make it through the cocoon
The ones who learn to fly
The butterfly people with luminous wings
With colours to paint the old night sky

Aaah ha-aaa
Dididiium….
Aaah ha-aaa

We chose to come this time to be
The ones who make it through the cocoon
The ones who learn to fly
The butterfly people with infinite wings
With colours to paint the old

The ones who make it through the cocoon
The ones who learn to fly
The butterfly people with luminous wings
With colours to paint the whole night sky
(Night sky)

Bringing the dawn
(Bringing)
Bringing it on

There’s too many things that nobody knows
They do their job and you do yours
Nobody does it better we’re all children of the stars

Hit it big with your heart, big with your soul
‘Cause deep inside, you’re ready for the light
So move your body, dance that beat
Shake a dream alive, shake it

You are big

Feel it in your heart
The dream that will be spun
Take some time to know yourself
You shine like the sun
Feel it in your heart

No need to apologize
There’s no need for compromise
Sing your dream and sing loud
It’s real, it’s yours; you should be proud

Cloud Eyes (I’m Scared, You’re Scared)

Cloud Eyes (I’m Scared, You’re Scared)

Takenya
Surata wakanda

Cloud eyes, picture me tonight
Hold me in the waters of your oldest feeling
Cloud eyes in the starlight
Touch me inside
And breathe me in to find your healing

Cloud eyes has a way of drowning
Even as she breathes and in her lungs
I am the sea
She waits until my fear has whispered
Softly down to sleep and in her dreams
She swims through me

I’m scared, so you’re scared
So what fear has ever mattered anyway?
I’m scared, so you’re scared
So what fear has ever mattered, mattered?

Cloud eyes in a silver sky
Where the moon flies
Like a paraglider lost in your mind
Cloud eyes in a dream flight
Let your wings slide
Across the moon into the dark side

Hold me, touch me, fill me, heal me
Let me feel the mist that flows in me
And in your dreams

I’m scared, so you’re scared
So what fear has ever mattered anyway?

I’m scared, so you’re scared
So what fear has ever mattered, mattered?

Earthbound

Earthbound, for so long
Stretching your wings I know your pain
It’s not too late to fly in search of spring
Escape your winter world on summer’s wing

Grow on, my flower in the snow
Splash of colour in the cold, I know your pain
My winter wonder lovely in this barren land
Of pain and fear and lips always sealed
In utter wonder now I hear you learned to sing
You learned to sing, you learned to sing
In utter wonder now I hear you learned to sing
You learned to… sing

Ooh… sing

Root bound (root bound) for so long (so long)
I, I know your pain
Its not too late to try for sun and rain
Your roots can find the pulse of life and rise again
From the sleep of cold, from the sleep of fear
The pain that comes from needing much and being too scared to try again

Grow on, flower
I, I know your pain
My winter wonder lovely in this barren land
Of rage and fear and lips always sealed

In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
you learned to sing, you learned to sing

In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
you learned to sing, you learned to sing
In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
you learned to sing, you learned to sing
In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
you learned to sing, you learned to sing
In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
you learned to sing, you learned to sing
In utter wonder still I hear you learned to sing
you learned to sing, you learned to….
Sing
