Goddess
(seemed like time for these ancient names to be remembered)

I see the mother in the sky
The mother in the clouds
The blue, the stars, the rain
I feel the mother in the earth
The mother in the rocks,
The caves, the soil, and the grain
Oooo can't you see her
Oooo you better believe her
I feel the mother in the sweat lodge
Mother in the kiva, mother in the drumbeat
I hear the mother in the wind
The mother cries her pain
And then she laughs again
Oooo can't you see her
Oooo you'd better believe her

Moon Daughters

Oh my daughters, my sweet daughters
Lying in my bed
The moon illuminates your faces
And my heart imparts these words I said
The moon's your mother, 
The moon's your power,
The moon she is your friend
The moon's your sister,
The moon's your lover
And there is no end.
Oh my daughters, my sweet daughters
You say you feel alone
There are so many things we feel
On this journey home
But life's your teacher
You're the seekers in the mystery
There are no answers
But you're the dancers
Alive and wild and free
And as you lie beneath the covers
I will watch and pray
And hover over you
I will hover over you
I'm in the nighthawk sighing
I'm in this song i'm writing
And I want the best for you
I want the most viscerally
Beautiful, joyful life for you
Oh my daughters, my sweet daughters
Lying in my bed
The sunrise illuminates your faces
And my heart imparts these words
The sun's your father
The sun's your power
The sun it is your friend
The sun will warm you
The sun will show you
That there is no end

Mirrors

What do you see
With deeper eyes than these
What do you feel
In your deepest heart so real
With my deeper eyes there is no blame
In my deepest heart you and I are the same
With my deeper eyes I am a child
In my deepest heart my love runs wild
How deeply do you see  your deepest self
That is exactly how  you can see someone else
How deeply do you know your deepest self
That is exactly how you can know some one else
In the smoky filter of my past I see
But it's clearer in the mirror 
when you reach deeply
In the smoky filter of my past I see
But it's clearer in the mirror 
when you reach down deeper
With my deeper eyes there's no keeping score
In my deepest heart I don't need more
Look in the mirror and see your deepest self
Not a projected illusion 
you place on some one else
With my deeper eyes
And my deepest heart

Whole and Healed
(written for my friends jenna & ric paulden's wedding)

We are whole and healed and worthy of
Being a pure channel of your divine love
Love comes and we find it
Love gathers our hearts to entwine them
Love will take you through the darkest times of doubt
May you stay with clear eyes
So your love can shine out
Love comes and we taste it
Love gathers our hearts to embrace them
Love will take you through the darkest times of doubt
May you stay with clear eyes 
So your love can shine out.

Vocals: jenny bird & adrienne braswell



Falling

I'm sittin' here holdin' 
my sweet little child
I'm kissin' her hair
Hearing her joys and cares
I'm always amazed who 
I meet deep in there
Each day falling deeper in love
There's nothing quite like a woman in love
The look in the eye
The blue of the sky
It makes it worth-while just being alive
Each day fallin' deeper in love
Chorus:
each day we are falling
Each day we are falling
Each day we are falling in love
There's nothing quite like 
that feeling of love
The touch of your hand
When you both understand
It's way too vast to comprehend
Each day falling deeper in love
Chorus
Love appreciates who it's with
Love wants to heal
And love wants to give
Love looks deeper for the best there is
Love looks deeper
Every breath greets each moment anew
We choose the perspective
We choose the view
I could sit here and notice
What's missing in you
But i'd rather be falling in love
Chorus

Suzanne

Suzanne was born in paris in 1931
Her sister joan, no more alone,
Kept her having fun
Her daddy put the talkies
in the movie shows
Her mama, once a dancer 
loved her daughters so
Chorus:
Oh Suzannah, I know you're proud of me
I'm so glad you're my mama
So glad I was your little bitty baby
Oh Suzannah, I know you're proud of me
I come from cincinnati 
with this guitar on my knee
Suzanne is a writer 
and a painter and an actress too
She always plays the piano
And she's the best darn mom I ever knew
She always has an ear to hear
A way to understand
She sends me weird stuff in the mail
And always lends a helping hand
Chorus:
I come from new harbor with this
Guitar on my knee
Suzannes the only woman 
who ever could have raised me
She gave me room to grow
To be all that I could be
She drove me to piano, ballet,
To my very first shows
And how she stayed sane raising four kids
Only heaven knows
Chorus:
I come from taos, n.m. with this
Guitar on my knee

Permian Sea

In the permian sea
In cathedrals of Gaia
In this deep reverie
We can breathe underwater
In the permian sea
In cathedrals of Gaia
There we laughed joyously
In illusions of maya
Here in our arms
We are personified heaven
Here in our arms
It's as if life only mattered
As if all life only mattered
Because of this love
In the unforaged territory
Of raw coastal land
Where the waves break so lavishly
And sigh to the sand
My ancestral memory surfaces still
And whispers enticingly
When nothing else will
In the permian sea
Floating so free
In these azure mists so blue  
Weightless and watching
These beings who know more
Than we do
Delphinea  delphina
In the permian sea
The universe is kind
Lovingly awash in open wide
Just beyond the waves 
You play here
Sisters of the sea
Opening to another realm of dream
Where everything is alive and safe
And joyously, joyously, joyously

Keyboards & vocals: jenny bird
Guitar: greg martin



Soul Family

In the passings and the birthings
Of my soul family
Touch the core of my being
I am the witness here to see
Our successes and our failures
Our sorrows and our joys
Touch me deeply and i'm weeping
When I feel we are
All of the same heart
In my soul family
We have come together here
To share this dance in time
You live your story
And I live mine
But where our stories intersect
There's nothing less than the divine
How much more love can we create
How much more love can we find
With the same heart, the same heart
In my soul family
We feel it all
We live it all
In the passings and the blessings
Of my soul family
It's the reason we're involved
It's a great big puzzle
That can't be solved
But we are the pieces
And that's enough now for us all
Of the same heart, the same heart
Of the same soul
It's the same heart, the same heart
In my soul family

Opening Windows

I've been there, I done that
I cried my little heart out until it was flat
All my doors were closed
But life goes on 
So i'm opening windows
Don't follow, don't lead
Just forge along your path
Planting all of your seeds
And cut down the dead weeds
´cause when the way is open
Then you can see
From the window there is a better view
And what you're seeking is there
Right in front of you
Gratitude is free
When your doors are closed
Open some windows believe, begin
You gotta stick to your heart 
Through the thick and the thin
And cut away all you don't need
´cause when the load is lighter
Then you can see
From the window there is a broader view
And what your seeking is there 
On the horizon, right there on the horizon
Shining in front of you
Gratitude is free
When your doors are closed
Open some windows

Somethin' To Do

Why am I driving down this road so far?
Why do I continually chase 
this dream so hard?
Why do I stay out all night 
playing my guitar?
I don't know why, but it's got
Somethin' to do with love
Why am I drowning all my sorrows here?
Why do I tell myself the same 
thing every year?
Why does it all look so crystal and so clear?
I don't know why, but it's got
 somethin' to do with love
Love makes us act so strange
Love breaks free our chains
Love is the only thing to make things change
To really, really make things change
Why do I feel so vulnerable and raw?
Why does this heavenly feeling
Between us have to crumble and fall
Why if love is so blind do you 
see my every flaw?
I don't know why, but let's bring it back
Home to love

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a soul like me
I once was lost, but now i'm found
Was blind but now I see
´Twas grace that taught my heart to sing
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers toils and snares
We have already come
´twas grace that brought us safe thus far
And grace shall lead us home
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing god's praise
Than when we first begun
Until this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil
A life of joy and peace
When my false friends leave my side
Forsaken I have been
Oh grace with thee I shall abide
And feel your peace within

Lords' prayer (aramaic translation)

Beloved source
Who dwells in our highest consciousness
How holy is your perfect nature
Your home is now within us
Your will of absolute good
Is established in the reaches of our hearts
So on earth as in heaven
You surround us always
Each day you feed our souls
With compassion that requires no enmity
And we reflect none to others
When tempted in illusion
Your eternal song of joy
Reminds us that we are you
And we are blessed
Forever and ever
