Lyrics from the 2013 solo demo EP ‘Silence Becomes Song’

1 Silence Becomes Song
How much heaviness can a single note lift?
What is the weight of a single chord,
A single sound?
Become hollow like a bird’s wing,
A bird’s wing,
Echo with music that begins
Where thinking ends.
Music wraps ribbons of Hallelujah
Around the darkest havens of the heart.
Ah, ah, ah…

With two cupped hands, Keep reaching
Into the the blue of the sky. Listen…
Silence becomes song.
Silence becomes song.

Burning like paper we fizzle out,
We burn too bright.
If we were birds we would use our wings
To hold up the sky.
Let your hollow bones be filled with embers,
Filled with light.
Give me the fuel for the right fire,
The right fire.
i know your perfect wings
Will hold you up high.
You can trust the stars to hold up the sky.
Ah, ah, ah…

With two cupped hands, Keep reaching
Into the the blue of the sky. Listen…
Silence becomes song.
Silence becomes song.

I’m not fire, I’m not ash;
But the phoenix who rises through both.
You’re not lost, you’re not found;
What you feel is not what you are.

Listen…
Silence becomes song.
Silence becomes song.

2 Lullaby (Never Alone)
I lay my heart
In the palm
Of a starry hand
In a vast
Dark sky,
And rock to an eternal
Lullaby.

Oh, I want you to know
You’re never alone
The entire universe
Is within you.
Lay your hand in mine.
Together we will walk
The mystery.
Holding each other high,
Higher than we ever
Could do alone.

Oh, I want you to know
You’re never alone
The entire universe
Is within you.

3 Carry Me Through
If I could live my life like a bell,
Who would be the one to ring me?
And would anyone hear the sound,
Ringing out all around?
Formless form, rising free,
To resonate,
Eternally.

As lovers pass heat from lips to lips.
As river stones make a passage for water to slip.
As every moment passes anew:
This heart carries me through,
This heart carries me through.

I want to love you,
Fully freely completely.
I want to spin like the stars,
In a velvet blanket with you.
No thought of tomorrow,
Taste eternity on your skin.

As lovers pass heat from lips to lips.
As river stones make a passage for water to slip.
As every moment passes anew:
This heart carries me through,
This heart carries me through.

If I could live my life like a song,
Who would be the one to sing me?
And would anyone sing along?
Build a bridge of harmony.
Formless form, rising free,
To resonate,
Eternally.

As lovers pass heat from lips to lips.
As river stones make a passage for water to slip.
As every moment passes anew:
This heart carries me through,
This heart carries me through.

4 Love Poetry
Your hands are embers fallen from the sun.
Your touch leaves trails of light on my skin.
You trace me with beauty,
You pour your beauty over me and I glow.
Generously I glow,
With a beauty you now call mine.
Your trace me with beauty,
You pour your beauty over me and I glow.

We are love poetry you know.
Making up the words as we go along,
In a torrent of dizzy sweetness,
Dizzy sweetness, oh,

Oh, I love you…

When you look at me I feel seen.
I love the shape your name makes in my mouth.
I love the shape of you,
In my life, in my life, oh.
Just like pieces of a puzzle we fit.
We are the petals on the flower of life.
I am the night sky,
You’re the stars, you’re the stars, oh.

We are love poetry you know.
Making up the words as we go along,
In a torrent of dizzy sweetness,
Dizzy sweetness, oh,

Oh, I love you…

Words like white sparks
Are tangled in my head.
Does it matter what I said?
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Truth can be read in silence,
Like a book without a word,
You look at me and I know
I am heard.

Oh, I love you…

5 Let Go
I’m done standing in my own way,
Casting shadows so long.
Fear of not ever being enough,
Laying silence over my song.
Taking one step forward in trust;
Two steps back in self judgement.
Running an impossible race.

Until I settle deeply,
In the only presence I am.
I give myself permission
To let go.
Just let go.

Peace is hiding, always hiding,
Peace is hiding in the heart of any struggle.

Can this many thoughts even fit in one mind,
Curled up tight in a ring?
Like a serpent that circles, biting it’s tail;
I’m over-thinking everything.
Taking one small moment in time,
And living it over and over.
Playing an impossible game.

Until I settle deeply,
In the only presence I am.
I give myself permission
To let go.
Just let go.

Holding onto shadows; fist full of shadows;
Holding onto shadows never ever,
Ever kept me safe.

Just let go.
Just let go.
So many shadows
So many shadows
So many shadows, so many,
Many ways to shine,
Shine.

6 Moon Pocket
If I always had the moon in my pocket,
The stars would come along with me.
I’d never forget who I am,
I’d share my heart freely.

Sometimes I turn into a turtle,
And I hide my face deep inside my shell.
I don’t want anyone to see me,
And I don’t have any stories to tell,
I don’t have any stories to tell.

Before we take flight we must shed our cocoon.
To touch the sky,
Trust these wings to fly.
Trust these wings to fly.

If I always had the ocean in my teacup,
I’d drink all the earth’s salty tears.
I’d hide dolphins and whales inside my belly.
I’d keep them safe for years and years.
Sometimes my ears turn into seashells,
And they ring with ancient echoes of time.
All the news I hear turns to nonsense.
And I don’t believe the Earth could ever die;
I don’t believe the Earth could ever die.

Before we take flight we must shed our cocoon.
To touch the sky,
Trust these wings to fly.
Trust these wings to fly.
Trust your wings
To fly.

7 Winter Night
The winter wind polishes the stars.
Through the icy air,
We can see so far.
Come and walk in the moonlit snow,
Come and step among the stars.
Let your footsteps guide you,
Where you dream to go.

The winter night lasts so long,
But shines so bright.
The coldest winter night,
Wraps it’s icy fingers around us tight.
The coldest winter night lasts so long,
But shines so bright.

The moon rules the winter darkness.
The wind is her heavy-handed king.
Through nights etched in diamond,
The two of them sing:
“Come and walk in the moonlit snow,
Come and step among the stars.
Let your footsteps guide you,
Where you dream to go.”

The winter night lasts so long,
But shines so bright.
The coldest winter night,
Wraps it’s icy fingers around us tight.
The coldest winter night lasts so long,
But shines so bright.
