The Rose

Songwriters: Gordon Mills
The Rose lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance
Its the one who won’t be taking, who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose

There is more love somewhere
There is more love somewhere
I’m gonna keep on ’til I find it
There is more love somewhere

There is more hope somewhere
There is more hope somewhere
I’m gonna keep on ’til I find it
There more hope somewhere

There is more peace somewhere
There is more peace somewhere
I’m gonna keep on ’til I find it
There is more peace somewhere

There is more joy somewhere
There is more joy somewhere
I’m gonna keep on ’til I find it
There is more joy somewhere

Words and music: African American spiritual

The Silent Awakening

Song: The Silent Awakening
Artist: Tina Malia
Album: The Silent Awakening

I dreamt I
Was born a girl
Living alone
In the world

Passing the
Hours away
I looked into
The face of sorrow

Tempted by the
Taste of tomorrow
And the scent
Of yesterday

But that was only
A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

We are only
A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

I dreamt that I
Could not find you
Always was a
Step behind you

Could not see
Your face

Wandering around
The maze
Of illusion’s
Dusty haze

A soul with no
Resting place

But that was only
A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

And only love
Can lift the veil
The veil
Away

Only love can
Take it’s place

and I have travelled
Long and far
just to come home
To your grace

Moondance’s Chant

Sweet bird with a voice sure and strong,
you come singing, clothed in love.
Skipping and playing, child of light,
you come laughing, clothed in love.

Lover, sister, healer, mother,
you come bravely, clothed only in love.
Lover, sister, healer, mother,
filled with hope, filled with magic,
coming to us clothed only in love.

May the Love We are Sharing

(New Zealand)

May the love we’re sharing spread its wings,
and fly across the earth and bring
new joy to every soul who is alive.
May the blessings of your grace, my love,
shine on everyone,
and may we all see the light
within, within, within.
