Track Name: Harbinger
A harbinger is riding on the wind
She tells us the changes have begun
We find ourselves hanging on
To things that we have known
Let go. She says "let go"

She speaks in gentle whispers to our souls
Telling us that something's going on
Open up your ears and hear
Beneath the clamor and noise
And go. She says "go"

Let yourself go deeper to the silence of your soul
Be still in that silence and you will know
A peace that knows no boundaries or no end
Go

You will rise like a phoenix from the flame
Can you see that your life is on fire
All the ropes that hold you down are being burned away
Will stay or fly away

Let yourself go deeper to the fire in your soul
Let its flames surround you
And you will know a freedom that knows
No boundaries or no end

Let yourself go deeper to the silence of your soul
Be still in that silence and you will know
A peace that knows no boundaries or no end
Go
Track Name: Peace Work
Piece me together a quilt made of time
Pieces of a life gone by
And they each are whole and they each are one
And they're all sown together in love

A shirt from your childhood, jeans from your youth
A piece of a scarf that you loved
And they each are rich and they each are full
And they all have a story to tell

Let me fly
Like a ribbon in the wind
Let my life rise like smoke to the sky
Like a prayer

Sew me together a fabric of truth
Made up of dark browns and grays
And black for the nights that I cried all alone
And black for when I first learned to see

Let me speak my truth
Let me say who I am
Let me show you all the colors that I am

All the yellows of my days
And the blues of my nights
The red of my blood
The green of my life, of my life

We'll sew together a quilt made of time
Pieces of our lives gone by
And we each are whole and we each are one
And we're all sown together in love

And we will fly like ribbons in the wind
Our lives will rise like smoke to the sky
Like a prayer
