WAVES OF LOVE

about

While spending six months in Brazil,  I performed a version of the chant, "So Much Magnificence" , from which came the question: "what would it be like if there were more words?" . Five years later in an old caravan, at a folk music weekend at a beautiful thatched pub near Cambridge, the words came pouring through, I could hardly write fast enough. "There is so music magnificence near the ocean, waves are coming in"  is a line taken from a poem by the Indian poet Kabir

lyrics

“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

LET THE WAVES OF VOICES WASH OVER YOU IN THIS SONG

A CHANCE TO TRUST IN THIS PRESENT TIME

LET THE WAVES OF LOVE WASH OVER YOU IN THIS LIFE

CH) HALLELUJAH
