Steven Milton Thank you for a beautiful record Ravi - your melodies take me to another place. I will never forget hearing 'We Are' for the first time last weekend and singing along with a group of 7 men and women who I now consider to be family. The words are truly beautiful and tell the story of how we are all ONE. I can't stop listening to it - thank you x Favorite track: WE ARE.

“WAVES OF LOVE”

by Ravi (and Peter Makena)

THERE IS SO MUCH MAGNIFICENCE, NEAR THE OCEAN, WAVES ARE COMING IN

THERE’S A LIGHT ON THE WATER, SONS AND DAUGHTERS, FROM THE PAST AND THE FUTURE

SONGS AND PRAYERS OF OUR ANCESTORS, GRANDMOTHERS AND FATHERSRETURN ON THE WAVE OF THIS SONG

COME TOGETHER IN THE POWER OF SOUND, BROTHERS AND SISTERS

AS THE WALLS OF ILLUSION TUMBLE DOWN

SINGING CIRCLES ON THE WATER, SONS AND DAUGHTERS

WE CREATE…… AS WE WILL IN THIS AGE

SONGS AND PRAYERS FOR THE FUTURE, SEE THE EYES

OF THE NEXT SEVEN GEN-ERATIONS

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE BEEN PROVED WRONG

A CHANCE TO TRUST IN THIS PRESENT TIME

LET THE WAVES OF LOVE WASH OVER YOU IN THIS LIFE

CH) HALLELUJAH
Track Name: DEEP INTO THE NIGHT
“DEEP INTO THE NIGHT”

words and music by RAVI (aka JP FREEMAN)

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,

CHORUS 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, letting go, deep into the night

and one by one the stars all start to fade

to reveal the light of a brand new day

Track Name: SOME KIND OF HAPPINESS
SOME KIND OF HAPPINESS by RAVI (JP FREEMAN)

1) THE PEOPLE I'VE MET, THE PLACES I'VE BEEN

THE SONGS I HAVE SUNG, IN THE TEMPLES AND STREETS

THE NEAREST AND DEAREST, WHOSE LOVE I'VE RECEIVED

KEEPS ME MOVING ON, TO TOUCH , SOME KIND OF HAPPINESS


2) FROM THE OLD SACRED YEW, TO THE FIELDS OF LIGHT

TO THE WELLS AND THE SPRINGS, OF THE PILGRIMAGE SITES

EVERY STEP THAT I TAKE, IS A GIFT OF THIS LIFE

KEEPS ME MOVING ON, TO TOUCH, SOME KIND OF HAPPINESS


3) THE STORIES OF OLD, THE WAIT TO BE TOLD

THE HERBS AND THE PLANTS, OF THIS SACRED LAND

THE WINDING ROAD AND THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK

THAT IS CALLING US, TO TOUCH, SOME KIND OF HAPPINESS


4) DEATH AND DECAY, BIRTH AND RENUAL

WHERE IS THIS LIFE LEADING US TO

THE SALMON WILL LEAP, TO ITS DESTINY, AND THE LOVE THAT WE HOLD

WILL GUIDE US WHERE WE NEED TO BE

TILL WE TOUCH, SOME KIND OF HAPPINESS
Track Name: DIVINE MOMENTS
DIVINE MOMENTS by RAVI (JP FREEMAN)

1) I've drunk with Shamen, I've sat with the bhuddas,
from the Amazon to the East
I've sung in temples, of all persuasions,
looking for that sweet release
CH) spiritual warrior , celestial spirit,.
just.... travelling through
witnessing and waiting patiently for these divine moments of truth

2) been on a mission, in strange positions
from the dojo to the beach
been hit with zen sticks, absolved of all sins,
by the head monk and the priest

CH) spiritual warrior, celestial pilgrim,
ready to be called by name
witnessing and waiting patiently ,
for these divine moments of grace

3) oh this heart, is like a radar,
always seeking out the truth
and it might look like, its all so polished,
but I'm only fumbling though

CH) spiritual warrior , celestial spirit, a misfit with a kiss
like a drunkard at the bar in the temple of love ,
cant get enough of these divine moments of bliss

CODA 4) thank you for your reflection,
you are truly a friend to me
