Track Name: If You Can
If you can catch the morning sun
Like a flower head that has turned
Waiting for the coming of the day
Sit awhile for life is on its way

Open up your ears and hear life sing
Every sound you hear has something to bring
There are voices riding on the wind
Listen to the ones that restore your life again

(Interlude)

If you can catch the rising moon
Watch the night time show unfold
Moon and starts and clouds play in the sky
Whole new worlds appear before your eyes

The Earth is yours and you belong to Her
Treat Her well and She will give in return
Everything you need in life to live
Abundant food and drink and happy bliss
Track Name: Seeing Myself
If I saw myself coming, me walking right up to me
How would I l?
Would I look with suspicion or have my arms open wide
How would I feel?

Would I even like me?
Could I stand my own company?
Oh, how would I feel about me?

If I saw myself moving through the course of a day
What would I say?
Would I find myself happy or would I see myself down
What would I say?

Would I even know me or listen to what I told me
Oh what would I say to me?

Girl, be strong and keep on moving
Rest your head awhile then get up and keep on moving
Don't lose heart and keep on singing
Oh that's what I would say to me

Girl be wise and keep on loving
Your body, your life
And when you move on
Keep on going, keep on going
Keep on going, keep on going

Oh that's what I would say to me
Track Name: Turn Inside Out
Taste the sky, smell the sun
See the music and feel the world turnin' round
Dry yourself with the rain
And wash with the dirt to clean the pain away

Turn inside out

Dance to a beat that others may not hear
Step with your own rhythm on a path that leads to who knows where
Feel yourself breaking through a wall you cannot see surrounding you

Turn inside out

(Interlude)

The pain you hold onto will destroy you
All the pain will find away to push outside of you
But what you set free of that which is within
Will be the very thing that saves you in the end

Turn inside out
Live inside out
Track Name: Walk On
What do you do with a heart that feels like its turning to stone?
And what do you say to the one that you see in the mirror everyday?

How did I get to this place so far removed from my dreams?
It feels like all my hope has disappeared, scattered with the wind

Is there someway to recapture the person that I was
From a long time ago?
When I was young and burned with fire and my future looked so bright
And I thought everything that I touched would turn to gold

Life is a funny thing, you think that you know it so well
But the longer I walk in these shoes I see I don't know it all

So I hang on to words that I've heard like love can conquer all
And I put my trust in the One Who says He can restore

Just a tiny ray of light to break into the darkness
Is what I need right now
Just sip of cool, cool water to quench my thirsty lips
Then I'll get up and I'll walk on

Walk on
Walk on
Walk on
Track Name: I'll Stand Alone
I'm gonna move on out ahead
Even though I cannot see
Anything in front of me but the earth and sky and my dream

In the past I've turned my eyes
To see who I could find
I'd look to anyone, trust anyone but me

I always hope that there will be someone standing next to me
But if not, I'll stand alone
I'll stand alone
I'll stand alone with me

No matter old I may be
I will always dream
I will live a life created by, created by me

Fire and flood may come
But I know that I am one
Of the ones who gets thing done
One of those ones

I always hope that there will be someone standing next to me
But if not, I'll stand alone
I'll stand alone
I'll stand alone with me

(Interlude)

I always hope that there will be someone standing next to me
But if not, I'll stand alone
I'll stand alone
I'll stand alone with me

I'll walk alone
I'll go alone
I'll stand alone with me
Track Name: If I Could
If I could I would be a cool breeze
To sooth your body on a hot summer day
And if I could I would be a blazing fire
To keep you warm on a cold, cold night

And if I could I would be a feather bed
For you to rest your head and sleep
And if I could I would be a fragrant bloom
To bring delight to your senses

If I could I'd wrap around your heart
And hold you in your dark close to me
If I could I'd catch a falling star
So all the wishes in your heart could come true

(Interlude)

If I could I would be a moonlit night
To bring awe to your mind
And if I could I would be a mountain stream
To quench your deepest thirst
If I could

If I could I'd wrap around your heart
And hold you close to me in the dark
If I could I'd catch a falling star
So all the wishes in your heart could come true
If I could

If I could I'd wrap around your heart
And hold you close to me in the dark
If I could I'd catch a falling star
So all the wishes in your heart could come true
If I could
Track Name: All a Part of the Dance
She ain't much of a looker but she sure is a seer
She notices life most of the time
She knows how to give and receive in like measure
The stars of the scale are her sign

She was born in the mountains
At home in the forest
She bonded with Life at a tender young age
Though storms blew around her she walked right through them
And has made it this far by grace

Walking in balance, living in balance
Is a great way to move through life
Learning and sharing, tearing down and restoring
It's all a part of the dance

Oh she's thrown a few punches
And received a few bruises
She's faltered along the way
Well every time she fell down
She got up and kept on walking
And has made it as far as today

Walking in balance, living in balance
Is a great way to move through life
Learning and sharing, tearing down and restoring
It's all a part of the dance

(Interlude)

Oh a time will be coming when she'll stop runnin'
And fall in the arms of the Source of er life
And they'll walk together in the Infinite Seasons
Creating and sharing life

Walking in balance, living in balance
Is a great way to move through life
Learning and sharing, tearing down and restoring
It's all a part of the dance
It's all a part of the dance
We are all a part of the dance
