Track Name: Rest in Love
REST IN LOVE by RAVI

THIS SACRED PATH, PRECIOUS LIFE, TRAVELLING LIGHT, FAR AND WIDE

COMES A TIME, FOR THE WEARY, REST YOUR HEART, IN THE JOY DIVINE

EMBRACING STRUGGLES, FACING FEAR, ALONE AND TOGETHER, HEARTS INTERTWINED

COMES A TIME, FOR THE WEARY,

REST YOUR BODY, IN THE ARMS, OF THE MOTHER, TAKE A BREATH........

REST IN THE PEACE, OF YOURSELF, TAKE THE CUP, OF LOVING KINDNESS

IF YOU ARE THIRSTY, COME DRINK WITH ME, REST IN THIS PEACE.......

REST IN LOVE,


2) HERE IT IS SAFE, IN THIS PRESENCE, BEYOND THIS PAIN, BEYOND THIS NAME

COMES A TIME, FOR SWEET SURRENDER, LAY ME DOWN, ON THE EARTH DIVINE

WITH THIS GIFT, OF OUR VOICES, AND A SWEET SONG, IN OUR HEARTS

COMES A TIME, FOR THE WEARY,

RETURN AND REST, COME TOGETHER, JOIN THE DANCE, OF SWEET CELEBRATION

DRAWING UP THE DIVINE, FROM THE BOTTOMLESS WELL, TAKE A BREATH........

REST IN THE PEACE, OF YOURSELF, REACHING OUT, AND WITHIN

YOU ARE PERFECTION, A JOY TO ME, REST IN THIS PEACE.......

REST IN LOVE,
Track Name: Journey
JOURNEY by RAVI

NOW , AS WE JOIN HANDS, AND PRECIOUS HEARTS AND TURN OUR EYES, TO THE SKY, AS SHADOWS FALL, WE SEE IT ALL, AND THAT THIS LOVE WILL NEVER DIE

DEEP INSIDE THE WOMB OF LIFE WE FIND, THERE IS A SEED OF GRACEFUL LIGHT,
BATHING IN THE WATERS OF THIS LOVE, UNTIL THE JOURNEY OF THE SOUL……
TAKES US HOME

NOW, WE'RE BREATHING STRONG AND FLOATING FAST, DOWN THE RIVER TO THE SEA, WE NOTICE WHO ARE SWIMMING CLOSE, OUR, SPIRIT FAMILY

DEEP INSIDE THE WOMB OF LIFE WE FIND, THERE IS A SEED OF GRACEFUL LIGHT,
BATHING IN THE WATERS OF THIS LOVE, UNTIL THE JOURNEY OF THE SOUL……
TAKES US HOME

NOW, THE DAY BEGINS, NOBODY WINS, NOBODY LOOSES ANYMORE , AND IN TIME, WE FIND THIS PEACE, IN BODY HEART AND MIND, AS PLANETS TURN, WE WATCH THE MOON AND THE MOVEMENTS OF THE SEA, THE STARS COME OUT, WE'RE FEELING BLESSED AND THE EARTH BELOW OUR FEET

DEEP INSIDE THE WOMB OF LIFE WE FIND, THERE IS A SEED OF GRACEFUL LIGHT,
BATHING IN THE WATERS OF THIS LOVE, UNTIL THE JOURNEY OF THE SOUL……
TAKES US HOME
Track Name: Sleep
SLEEP by RAVI

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 your daily show, brightens up this life, like-the-lights on clear winter nights

love is unconditional with you and me, and your the luckiest child 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

5) laugh little baby laugh, while I take a photograph, to carry in my hand while in strange and foreign lands

when i return I'll sing you songs I learned when I was travelling, and here is one that you can keep.....so sleep little baby sleep

so sleep little baby sleep , so sleep little baby sleep
Track Name: heart is the part
HEART IS THE PART by RAVI

1) AND 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: The Other Shore
The Other Shore by RAVI


CH)

we all set out for the distant shore, just to find that there was only ,

infinite ocean, beneath the infinite sky, infinite ocean, beneath the infinite sky

and there is no other shore, and there is no other shore



1)

on our quest for love, we travelled far

the seven seas & the mystic east

just to find that love was only, in the infinite heart


we travelled far, on our quest for love

to the distant moon and furthest star

just to find that love was only, in the infinite heart
Track Name: WHAT REMAINS
WHAT REMAINS by RAVI

1) be brave and wise, and dare to speak, the truth, the darkest night, it will, give way, to light, and on this road, the wear and tear, will strip away, and what remains, is love,

2) be brave and wise, the stories of, the world, will be, reflected in, your wonderous eyes, the time is here, for you , to shine, you've had, your trials, the pain subsides, and what remains, is love

CH: universal child you hold the keys to this love and understanding, stay a while, universal child

3) give praise, to those, around, you now, and don't forget, to use your voice this power of sound, be brave be calm, the storm, will wash, around you as, you hoist your sail, and what remains, is love

4) the voice that sings, the hand that writes, the greater grows , the dark, the greater grows the forces, of this light, the fears that blind, will all subside, and what remains, is love

5) be brave and wise, ..... smile and when your eyes meets mine, my world is turned upside and out, The strength of a rose, the tears, that flow, the heart that knows, and what remains, is love

6) we live and die, don't be afraid, to shine your light, it will caress and bless this earth, we share right now, caretakers in, in all, but name, and what remains, is love,

7) worlds collide, we travel far, beyond our home, the circumference of , the furthest star, will light our way, arriving at the source of light, to find the same, that what remains is love, and what remains, is love
Track Name: SONGS OF LOVE
SONGS OF LOVE by RAVI

1) listening to the winds of silence, pure expression earthly sounds

in the lonely night of longing, what was lost can now be found

* when the dawn breaks and the heart aches

feelings they will come and go, like poetry falling on the page

you can choose to see this life's charade, but have you heard these songs, of love

2) two sides to a simple story, two hearts with their tales to tell

in a walled and fragrant garden, you throw a coin into a well

* there's a songbird, softly singing

and on the stage the game is played, different characters with ornate masks

spirits of the future's past, and have you heard these songs, of love

M8) and when the day is done, and all the songs are sung, was it all a dream, or reality

3) songs of love and songs of silence, ritual and circumstance

sometimes we all need some guidance, sometimes just a loving hand

we make our plans so god can laugh, we are her tears of pain and joy,

that rain onto this blessed land, creating rivers, lakes and seas

within these words there is a wish, find the kiss within the song

here to give.....and to help, an opening so hearts can melt,

and have you heard these songs, have you heard these songs, of love
