Lyrics

FILL MY WORLD WITH YOUR LOVE

 

 HOW CAN I FIND WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR

WITHOUT YOU WITHIN ME TO OPEN THE DOOR

I WANT YOU WITH ME ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT

TOUCHING MY HEARTSTRINGS

WITH MUSIC OF LIGHT

 

(CHORUS)

 FILL MY LIFE WITH YOUR LIFE

 FILL MY HEART WITH YOUR HEART

 LET MY EYES SEE WHAT YOU SEE

 FILL MY WORLD WITH YOUR LOVE

 FILL MY WORLD WITH YOUR LOVE

 OOH  OOH  OOH ETC

 

 

DARKNESS NOR DAYLIGHT

CAN SHOW ME THE  TRUTH

WHAT  AM I SEEING IF I CAN’T SEE YOU

I WANT YOU WITH ME TO SHOW ME THE LIGHT

TOUCH ME AND OPEN MY EYES SO THAT I MAY SEE

ETERNALLY


 (CHORUS)

Lyrics

THAT’S ALL I NEED TO KNOW

 

IF I COULD TAKE YOUR WORRIES AWAY

IF I COULD MAKE YOUR LIFE BE PERFECT EVERY DAY

WOULD YOU STILL  LONG WOULD YOU STILL YEARN

WOULD YOUR STILL SEEK  THE TRUTH INSIDE YOUR SOUL

 

TRUSTING THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.

 

 

WHEN LIFE’S NOT FUN  DO I UNDERSTAND THE PLAN?

I’LL LET IT COME BE LIKE THE WIND  BEFORE THE FAN

AND WHEN I LOVE  WHEN I LET GO

AND SURRENDER TO THE FLOW

I THEN CAN SEE THE TRUTH INSIDE MY SOUL

 

TRUSTING THAT’S ALL I NEED TO KNOW

 (bridge)

LIFE IS UNFOLDING   WHY ARE WE HOLDING ON?

EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE  IS PERFECT FOR OUR GROWTH

EVERYTHING IS BRINGING US CLOSER TO THEE


AND SO I TRUST.........AND KNOW THAT’S ALL I NEED TO KNOW

SO I TRUST.........AND KNOW THAT’S ALL I NEED TO KNOW

AND SO I TRUST.........AND KNOW THAT’S ALL I NEED TO KNOW

AND SO I TRUST.........AND KNOW THAT’S ALL I NEED................. TO KNOW

Lyrics

FILL MY CUP WITH THE LIVING WATER

 

TAKE MY HAND.....AND I WILL FOLLOW

AND WE WILL GO

WHERE THE FOUR WINDS BLOW

 

TAKE MY PAIN...........TAKE MY SORROW

HEAL MY LIFE

LIKE A WOUNDED SPARROW

 

AND I WILL WALK.......WITH YOU BESIDE ME

AND I WILL FLY

IN YOUR LIVING LIGHT

IN YOUR LOVING LIGHT

IN YOUR LOVING LIGHT

 

 THOUGH I WALK.......THROUGH THE VALLEY OF DARKNESS

I WILL FEAR.... I WILL FEAR NO EVIL

 

FOR I KNOW.... THAT YOU ARE WITH ME

AND YOU WILL LEAVE  ME NEVER MORE

 

AND I WILL WALK..... WITH YOU BESIDE ME

AND I WILL FLY

IN YOUR LIVING LIGHT

IN YOUR LOVING LIGHT

IN YOUR LOVING LIGHT

 

 FILL  MY CUP.........WITH THE LIVING WATER

 TURN MY DARKNESS INTO LIGHT

FILL MY LIFE ...........WITH THE LIVING WATER

AND I WILL  LEAVE YOU NEVER MORE

 

 FILL MY CUP...........WITH THE LIVING WATER

FILL MY CUP............WITH THE LIVING WATER

FILL MY CUP........... WITH THE LIVING WATER

FILL MY CUP........... WITH THE LIVING WATER

 

AND I WILL LEAVE YOU NEVER MORE

AND I WILL LEAVE YOU NEVER MORE

AND I WILL LEAVE YOU NEVER MORE

Lyrics

THE WAVE

Unanswered questions and unresolved pain…Unfulfilled desires and unneeded strain

To find what?

The nature of man is to strive and seek…The nature of creation is to give and to be

Balance is needed to walk the fine line

And go where?

What are we really wanting….what do we really need?

How do we know in the midst of the drama

What is this all really for

Is there someone who will tell us…..and then we’ll really know

Is that how we find the answer to the cosmic mystery show?

Where will we go when there’s no one left to ask

Alone in our final moments

The only place there ever was

The deep silent well of our own existence.

There we fully know what we are and why we came here

And once we know the truth of our selves

It can never be taken from us.

 

For we are waves in an endless ocean

 You are a wave in the sea of love

And we cannot separate the ties… with which creation binds us

 

But when the tiny wavelets that we are…come together with a love & common purpose

We become a wave of greater motion

Breaking upon the shore

 

The shore of man’s reality ….is a hard and stubborn bulwark

Tempered by pain and suffering….and afraid of losing ground

 

But the breaking of our wave of love…will slowly ease the edges

And as the wave recedes again……into the source, the mighty ocean

 

It takes some sand…some rolling stones…fragments of the once hard ground

the remains of stubborn resistance…….And returns to break again

 

Over time the mighty fortress of that which seemed so strong

Will succumb to the lull of the endless waves ….of love and understanding

 And in the end the shore becomes the sea …..and the waves go on forever

 

Moving silently….In a sea of never ending love                  Beyond eternity

Lyrics

WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE

 

BEFORE THE BEGINNING……BEFORE THERE WAS TIME….ALL ThERE IS WAS ONE …ALL THAT IS WAS EVERYTHING

AN ENDLESS SEA OF LOVE….LOVE AND CONSCIOUSNESs

.SELF FULFILLING NEVER ENDING…BLISS FOREVERMORE…repeat

 

AND THE ONE… EXPERIENCING ITSELF……FULL OF LOVE …SO SWEET AND TENDER

DISCOVERED A DESIRE…. UNFULFILLED WITHIN THE ONE

THE ONE  IN ALL….. COMPLETE AND ENDLESS…..FILLED WITH  LOVE …..AND BLISS UNENDING

LOVE SO SWEET WAS INCOMPLETE …UNLESS IT COULD EXPRESS…UNLESS IT COULD EXPRESS

 

AND SO IT STARTED…. AND SO IT STARTED…….SEEKING TO EXPRESS…THE ONE BECAME THE MANY

AND THROUGH THE EONS OF EXSISTENCE…WE HAVE ALL BEEN TRAVELING

WE HAVE ALL BEEN TRAVELING

UNDERNEATH THE VEIL …OF PASSING LIFETIMES

 

WE HAVE MISSED THE SOURCE…THE SOURCE OF OUR BEGINNING

 

FROM THE ROOT OF OUR CREATION……WE HAVE ALL BEEN SEEKING…….SEEKING TO RETURN

 

RETURN TO OUR TRUE ESSENCE

BUT ALL ALONG THE PATHWAY…SOMETHINGS ALWAYS MISSING……IT’S SIMPLE BUT CONVINCING

THAT LOVE IS NOT COMPLETE WITHOUT THE SHARING

 

OH WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE….AND LOVE IS OUR EXISTENCE……..WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE

AND LOVE WE MUST OR REAPPEAR FOREVER ON THE WHEEL OF LIFE

REAPPEAR FOREVER ON THE WHEEL OF LIFE…………………………….UNTIL WE LEARN

 

THAT WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE …..repeat 4 times

 

LOVE IS THE SUBSTANCE …THE ESSENCE OF ALL LIFE…….FEEL THE VIBRATION

LET IT FULFILL YOU…SHARE IT WITH OTHERS,,,, AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING

COMPLETE THE CIRCLE …FULFILL THE PURPOSE……FULFILL THE PURPOSE

THAT WE WERE MADE FOR

 

OH   WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE………………… AND LOVE IS WHAT WE’RE MADE OF (love is what were made of)

 

OH   WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE…..(love is our true essence)   AND LOVE IS WHAT WE’RE MADE OF (love is what were made of)

 

WE WERE MEANT FOR LOVE…repeats to end
