Track Name: Nature's Lament
To her fair works did Nature link
The soul that through me ran
And much it grieved my heart to think
What man has made of man

I heard a thousand blended notes
While in a grove I reclined
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Brought sad thoughts to the mind
Through primrose tufts in that green bower
The myrtle herb trailed it’s wreaths
And through my faith now every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes

The birds around me hopped and played
Their thoughts I cannot measure
But the least motion that they made
Did seem a thrill of pleasure
A budding twig spread out its fan
To catch the breezy air
And I must think do all I can
That there was pleasure there

If this belief from heaven be sent
If such be Nature's plan
Have I not reason to lament
For what man has made of man?
Track Name: Elemental Spirits
The joy within your touch is soothing (the joy within)
The sound within your voice is healing (is soothing)
The strength within your being is comforting (the sound within)
As we transcend … from here (is healing)

Quietly I wait to hear your call
Teach me about your song
Dancing around the Hawthorn tree
I feel you all day long
Slowly I watch you disappear
Into the heaves above
Drifting along like a cloud in the sky
Spreading ideas and love

Element of air I feel you here
Swirling and whirling and clearing my mind
Wind in the forest I feel you near
Rushing and gushing and leaving behind
The past like a memory left forgotten
As you soothingly sing through the trees
Spreading your thoughts to the earth far below
Dancing as bold as you please
Track Name: Here and Now
Fires burn and desires yearn
At a time when I learn to let go
Rivers run lit by the sun
As the waters of life always flow

And I am here and I have no fear
And I am in the here and now

Daisy chains and passing trains
Moving onward towards a new home
Winter breeze and icy trees
In the woods where I like to roam

And I am here and I have no fear
And I am in the here and now

Dancing waves in the hidden caves
By the sea where I like to go
Sandy shore and the misty moor
I will find all I need to know

And I am here and I have no fear
And I am in the here and now
Track Name: Queen Boadicea
When the Celtic warrior queen bleeding from the Roman rods
Sought with an indignant mien counsel of her country’s gods
The sage beneath a spreading oak sat the Druid ancient chief
Every burning word he spoke was full of rage and full of grief

Boadicea, with the monarch’s pride
Boadicea, battled, fought, and died
Boadicea, with tears for peace she cried
Boadicea, brought the turning of the tide

Princess if our aged eyes weep upon thy matchless wrongs
The strength of our resentment ties all the terror of our tongues
When the progeny that springs from the forests of our land
Armed with thunder, clad with wings shall a wider world command

She with all a monarch’s pride felt them in her bosom glow
Rushed to battle, fought and died then dying hurled them at the foe
Now other soldiers shall arise heedless of their brother’s name
But sounds not arms shall win the prize with harmony the path to fame
Track Name: Colours of the Earth
Flowers bloom throughout springtime in colours of the earth
We see the petals greet the sun all nature giving birth
And when the setting day is done and winter comes to stay
The light will fade for the stars to shine & lead us on our way
Once more the seasons are a changing
And domes the deep and heather hills
With song birds singing bright and joyful tunes
The blackbirds still will have their wills.
The woods with living airs are keeping
The light airs far beneath the sand,
The trees are breathing and so softly sleeping
Their voices heard throughout the land.
The fairy folk within the forests
Fly round and sing like birds,
They ring aloud their bells of change
From the heavens clear in spoken word.
For now the heavenly power is here
To make the older seem so new,
With flowers opening up their gentle arms
The creatures now are waking too.
Track Name: Visions For Life
For a dream like this is yours to find
It soothes the heart and heals the mind
With flames of thought that shine the light
Visions bring (the soul such) delight

I dreamt I lay where flowers were springing in the sunny beam
Listening to the wild birds singing by a crystal stream
And there my heart began to wander far beyond this land
I rambled through the purple heather and roved beside the strand

I dreamt I found a piece of land where freedom filled the air
Where people lived in harmony without pain or despair
And there I found the tree of life embodied by a silver Birch
Its leaves were lit throughout the night for all who came in search

I dreamt I walked along a path that wove within a valley
And there I came across a channel that held a golden galley
I climbed aboard this ancient vessel and soon we sailed away
Beyond the land, beyond the shore, and out beyond the bay

We seek the highest path we know
Watching down on earth below
Bathed in sunlight all year round
This journey takes us homeward bound
Track Name: Banish the Storm
Let your mind be taken over
Allow your intuition to rule
If you are ready to let go
Your passion becomes your tool - say

Fear I won’t let you return
I’ll crush you up and make you burn
Fear I won’t let you return
From you I’ll teach my mind to learn
Fear I won’t let you take hold
My heart’s too strong and vision bold
Fear I won’t let you take hold
It’s clear to me you freeze me cold

The dark clouds of fear returning
When the light is lost
Remember there’s always a path to follow
Through the fields of frost
Listen to your heart’s words of warning
Don’t follow what you think you know
Walk in the waves of wisdom
Through forests filled with snow

The dark clouds of fear I’ll deal with
While the days are young
I’ll banish the storm from my kingdom
With weapons from my tongue
I stood in my truth in the light
I ran through the obstacles ahead
The shapes and shadows in front of me
All heard me when I said
Track Name: Eyes of the Soul
For the eyes are the sign of the soul within
Of a heart that is loyal in view
And my faithful sweetheart I shall love you still
For as long as your eyes are blue

For the spirit within can carefully bind
Deep peace through uniting the heart of mankind
When it’s meaning and purpose that we seek to find
Then the soul brings time out of mind
Track Name: Ocean of Dreams
Colour me purple in your evening light
Wash me upon your shore in the night
Carry me above your crashing waves with ease
Blow me along your coast in the breeze

In my dreams I bathe in the water
And sail to a faraway land
In my dreams I fly across the ocean
And I dance upon your sparkling sand

Soothe me and heal me with your salty waves
Hold me close and wash my tears away
I hear your waters lap in deep conversation
Within your presence I find my inspiration

And I dance
And I dance
And I dance upon your sand
Track Name: Prayer for Trees
You are so needed
You give us life to breath
You are so healing
You help us when we grieve
You share with us your beauty
You keep us safe from harm
We shelter from the sun and rain
We rest beneath your arms

Thank you for your green
Thank you for your leaves
Thank you for your breeze
Thank you for your peace

Thank you for your green
Thank you for your leaves
Thank you for your breeze
Thank you for your peace
