Track Name: Lovingkind
I’m opening to you each day so wide
I’m following the way, no I won’t hide
I’m so amazed that I find you by my side

And we’re growing
Our paths intertwined
Never knowing just what we’ll find
But no fear, you know I don’t mind
Keep it flowing so Lovingkind

I didn’t know what I was s’posed to do
I searched, I prayed, I listened for a clue
My mind was overblown with fears untrue

Now I’m with you
My joy I can’t hide
And I’m ready, all my tears have dried
And it’s clear, it’s here we can find
Always showing, real Love divine

I’m not afraid to say I love you baby!
I know I’ve made mistakes, but I’ve learned, maybe
At any rate, I’m not so worried lately

We’re together
Two parts combined
Never knowing just what we’ll find
But no fear, you know I don’t mind
When it’s flowing, your Love so kind
Keep it flowing True Love so kind
Keep it flowing True Love so kind
Track Name: Yellow Sun
How ‘bout that sun?
That yellow sun
That shines the whole way through
Let it shine
Let it shine on you

That heavy cloud
When it comes hangin’ ‘round
And it makes your bright day blue
Let it rain
Let it pass on through
What else can you do?

It takes time to grow peace of mind
You can’t force it
You just need to unwind

And how ‘bout that sun?
That yellow sun
That shines the whole way through
Let it shine
Let it shine on you
Shine on me too
Shine on everybody

It takes time to grow your peace of mind
You can’t force it
You just need to unwind

And how ‘bout that Love?
That precious Love
That makes the whole world new
Let it come
Let it come from you
And everything you do
Track Name: Blue Sky
Doesn’t the sky look blue
Everywhere you go
When you look, when you think
Like you ought to

Sun is shining bright
On the road ahead
Stop and turn, I’ll be there beside ya

Right! Sing a song for blue
I love you too

When you weigh a ton
Take another step
And imagine a path up to the sun

Another clear blue sky
Is just a state of mind
We must all find a way to get by

Right! Sing a song for blue
I love you too

Doesn’t the sky look blue
Everywhere you go
When you feel, like you know you really wanna
Track Name: Tryptide
Tell me that I’m gonna make it through this
Tell me that there’s really nothing to this
Tell me that I’m really doing just fine
And all of my worries are in my mind

Let me feel your loving arms surround me
Lift me up and keep my mind from drowning
Let me know you’re staying right by my side
‘Cause it feels like I’ve been swept into a tryptide

It’s so hard when you don’t know who you are
And it’s all your name but we’re playing this game
And it seems so long and I hope I didn’t do you wrong
We’re one but it’s strange, we have to play this game

Love for real not faking that’s the way now
Love for free not taking that’s the way now
Opening not breaking my heart now
And you know that’s just the way to start now

It’s so hard when you don’t know who you are
And it’s all your name but we’re taking in vain
And it seems so long and I don’t know whether it’s right or wrong
There’s no one to blame, we have to play this game

Love for real not faking that’s the way now
Love for free not taking that’s the way now
Opening not breaking your heart now
And you know that’s just the way to start now

That’s the way to start
That’s the way it’s all within your heart
Track Name: Climb That Hill
Everybody’s gotta climb that hill
It’s all any of us can do
When at last everything falls through
Ooo, I wish I had the mind
To leave it all behind

Everybody’s gotta walk awhile
Till at last they can sit down
Well, I’m getting tired of this running around
Ooo, I really wanna go inside
But the door is locked and I can’t hide

Don’t deny me
When I need some relief this time

Everybody’s seen the promised land
There’s enough to go around
If we don’t get it soon we’re all gonna drown
Now I know what’s real or not
If ever I forgot

When at last the world opens up
What we need so bad we find
Thank God when no one’s waiting in line
Ooo, I won’t forget the time, the hill I had to climb

Don’t deny me
When I need some relief this time
Track Name: Morning Song Too
Good day, it’s a good day
And I’m glad to say yesterday’s through
Tomorrow is untrue, and today is new

New day, a brand new day
And you have to know the old days are gone
And we must keep on the trail of dawn

Nothing really happens
It’s just a state of mind
Time is an illusion
Time is an illusion

Happy to be near you
And I know that you’ll never leave me on my own
I’m never alone, just forgetful

Good day, such a good day
And I wish it could stay, but that could never be
Today won’t be bound; it must be free
Track Name: Caterpillars
The day keeps blazing away
Air conditioners running, racing
Caterpillars oh so lazy
So afraid of changing their names

She don’t have much for cover
She’s got the sky above her
She knows how much I love her
But there’s just no time for lovers’ games

And the day keeps passing through my eyes
All I can say is my, how it flies
There’s just no way to hold on
I try, reach out in vain but it’s gone
And she keeps laughing through all time
Sending me kisses on my mind
To join her would be too bold
Maybe someday before I get old...

The world keeps spinning around
Caterpillar feet seldom touch the ground
Sickly cyclical patterns keep them bound
Fast asleep and so safe and sound

I dream about my lover
I keep a picture a picture of her
Behind my eyelid covers
You know there’s just no other to be found

But the world is heavy on my mind
I can hardly think of Love to find
Tomorrow is a new day
Tomorrow’s never coming my way
And my love keeps calling me to rise
She fills me up with butterflies
But I’m just wrapped up in my own thread
Too soon to fly, too late when I’m dead!
Track Name: As You Fly
Patience makes the flowers grow
Wonder if we’ll ever know
Solid ground

There seems to be no end to it
It seems to be just infinite
Turning round

And how can we learn to see life’s changing things
With eyes that don’t try to tie with strings?

Sing to me the names of Love
You know the one I’m dreaming of
Day and night

We take it all so serious
Till we see it’s really just
A play of light

And how can I learn to Love but not say mine?
Can I simply kiss you as you fly?

As you fly
With no mind
No thoughts to bind you
Track Name: Energy
With a little energy
We can make a lotta love
We can make a lotta love
We can get it right

With a little energy
We can make a lotta love
We can make a lotta love
We can get it right

If I had a dollar
for every time you told me
Every time you said to me
This wasn’t gonna last

Baby I would buy you things
All those things I can’t afford
That you never needed anyway
I’d leave them at your door

Won’t you try?
Won’t you try?

Standing by your window
I can see right into you
Things you wouldn’t want me to
And everything looks fine

Baby won’t you let it out
Shine your love into the night
Show them that we’re not afraid
That we can do it right

Won’t you try?
Won’t you try?

We can do it, baby, with a little energy . . .
