Track Name: CANOPY OF STARS
CANOPY OF STARS by RAVI

HAVE YOU SEEN THE WHITE DOVE FLYING
HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN WHO YOU ARE
HOW DID THE DOGON TRIBE KNOW ABOUT THAT STAR
WAS THAT A PYRAMID ON MARS

BR
CHASING BEAUTY WHERE IT GOES
FINDING DOORS THAT ONCE WERE CLOSED

CH
AND DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED
YET INSIGNIFICANT BELOW, A CANOPY OF STARS

2) THE OTHER BREAKS YOUR HEART WIDE OPEN
A FRIEND HAS FOUND ITS TIME TO GO
LOVE CAN NEVER BE A BURDON
EVEN WHEN DANGER IS CLOSE

2B) YOU CANNOT WAGE WAR ON YOUR BROTHER
WHEN LOVE IS ALL YOU'VE EVER KNOWN

BR
MYSTERY BELOW AND ABOVE
THROUGH THE TREASURE TROVE OF THE HEART

CH)
AND DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED
YET INSIGNIFICANT BELOW, A CANOPY OF STARS

3) FROM THE PEACEFUL PRESEILI HILLS, ALL THE WAY TO SALISBURY PLAIN
HOW, WHEN AND WHY THEY MOVED THE BLUESTONE, SOMEHOW I THINK WE'LL NEVER KNOW
TWO ORBS OF LIGHT FLASH THROUGH A WILTSHIRE FIELD, A PERFECT CIRCLE TO REVEAL
TWO HEARTS OF LOVE FLOAT THROUGH THE UNIVERSE, LIKE CELESTIAL BODIES MOVED BY GRAVITY

4) AND AS WE MOVE TOWARDS THE END DAYS, AND TIME CEASES TO BE REAL
WE STAY CONNECTED TO COMMUNITY, FOR CELEBRATION IS THE KEY
TEN THOUSAND YEARS HAVE DRIFTED BY, AND NOW THE PORTAL OPENS WIDE

BR DEEP DOWN INTO THE RABBIT HOLE
PRESERVING KNOWLEDGE AS WE GO

CH AND DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED
YET INSIGNIFICANT BELOW, A CANOPY OF STARS
Track Name: HEART IS THE PART
HEART IS THE PART

1) THE HEART IS THE PART YOU WILL ALWAYS RETURN TO

WHEN I'M BLOWN OFF COURSE, NO WIND, IN MY SAIL

THE HEART IS THE PART I RETURN TO AGAIN

AND IF I EVER LOST A DEAR OLD FRIEND

THE HEART IS THE PART I'D RETURN TO AGAIN

CH) SAIL WITH ME , TO THE SHORE

WE'LL BE CALM, IN THE EYE, OF THE STORM

2) FOR THE LOVE THATS LOST AND LOVE THAT IS GAINED

THE HEART IS THE PART WE RETURN TO AGAIN

WHEN THE WATERS ROUGH AND I CAN'T SET SAIL

THE HEART IS THE PART I RETURN TO AGAIN

CH) SING WITH ME, AS ONE VOICE,

AND ONE HEART, AND ONE FAMILY


BR) ARRIVING IN BIRTH WITH A BREATH, DEPARTING WITH ANOTHER IN DEATH

WITH A TURN OF THE WHEEL, THE BARDO AWAITS, IS IT ALWAYS FATE TO RETURN

WITH A BREATH WE RELEASE AND A BREATHE WE RECEIVE

AND THE HEART, IS A FRIEND, TO RETURN TO AGAIN


4) WALK THROUGH THE FIRE, SLOWLY IT BURNS

THE HEART IS THE PART YOU WILL ALWAYS RETURN, TO

WE DON'T ALWAYS KNOW, WHERE THE SILENCE GOES

BUT THE HEART IS THE PART WE CAN ALWAYS RETURN, TO

CH) DANCE WITH ME, THROUGH THE NIGHT

TILL THE CLEAR , MORNING LIGHT

WE CAN WALTZ, THROUGH THIS LIFE

AND THE HEART IS THE PART WE WILL ALWAYS RETURN TO IN THE END
Track Name: SLEEP
1) sleep little baby sleep, as we drift into the night, your mother, and your father's love will feed your restfull sleep

with sweet__and calming dreams singing lullabys a plenty, by a choir of leprechauns from the land across the sea


2) your mother is an angel and the star in my daily show

she brightens up my life like-the-lights on winter soltice nights

love is unconditional with mother, baby and me

and your the luckiest baby I ever chanced to meet


3) cry little baby cry as we drift into the day, while your mother's sleeping we'll slip away to play

to search for lions in the woods, chasing butterflies with our eyes

till its time to go back home where your mother lies, slumbering


4) play little baby play, but the time is moving on

your mother's breast is waiting, and your daddy's leaving home

to go out now into the world, and find some satisfying work

returning with the kisses and the riches we deserve
Track Name: DEEP INTO THE NIGHT
DEEP INTO THE NIGHT

1) we're walking though the door, this portal of love

I've never felt before, such a moment of trust

revealing secret realms and melodies, in your heart

this circle of sound,

when love is on your side, hearts they open wide


2) this room is like a boat, as we glide across waters wide

this love is like the wind in the billowing sails under starry skies

lets steer a course for home and all that we long for

with this circle of light,

when love is at the helm, hearts they start to melt,


BR) Letting go, we're letting go, deep into the night


3) Illuminating flames, as they touch in the dark

reflecting back to you, is simply all that you are

were wrapped inside a blanket so divine

a circle of love

the call becomes so strong, this light will guide us on


4) we drink a cup of all the colours of life
embrace the dark and all the sweetness of the light
we find a door that wasn't there before
a portal of trust
and lifetimes we have roamed, to find a way back home

BR) Letting go, we're letting go, deep into the night x2
deep into the night x2

and one by one the stars all start to fade
to reveal the light of a brand new day

Track Name: TIME CAPSULE
1) ITS TIME FOR THIS SOUL TO BE MOVING ON

KEEP THE CANDLE LIT AND YOUR HEART STRONG

CIRCUMSTANCE HAS LEFT ME WASTING AWAY

DETERIATION INCREASING DAY BY DAY

BR) BUT HERE IS, SOMETHING, FOR THE CHILDREN TO CHERISH

MANY YEARS FROM NOW

CH) MANY YEARS FROM NOW, WHEN THEY ARE OLDER, WITH THEIR OWN HOMES

MANY YEARS FROM NOW, THEY WILL BE OLD ENOUGH, TO REMEMBER ME

IN A TIME CAPSULE OF LOVE

2) THE DOCTOR'S PRESCRIBING MORPHINE TO GO

I'M STAYING WITH THE PAIN, SO I TOLD HER NO

JUST STAYING LUCID, A FEW MORE MOMENTS, OR MORE

EYES WIDE OPEN TO SURRENDER THIS SOUL

BR) BUT HERE IS, SOMETHING, FOR THE CHILDREN TO CHERISH

MANY YEARS FROM NOW

CH) MANY YEARS FROM NOW, WHEN THEY ARE OLDER, WITH THEIR OWN HOME
MANY YEARS FROM NOW, THEY WILL BE OLD ENOUGH, TO DISCOVER ME
IN A TIME CAPSULE OF LOVE

M8: I'LL BE WATCHING OVER YOU ALL

3) I'VE GIVEN MY BEST IN THESE 30 ODD YEARS

NO REGRETS, MY CONSCIENCE IS CLEAR

WHEN STRUCK DOWN AT THE TOP OF YOUR GAME

NO USE FIGHTING, NO NEED FOR SHAME
