LYRICS - LIKE RAIN

How does a baby really ever get born?
It’s a miracle a when a soldier – comes back from war
Somebody found who was lost at sea
Something as simple as a new grown leaf

It will lift you up – and make you whole
Like rain it’s falling, shower blessings on us all
It’ll make you strong, comfort your soul
Like rain it’s falling, shower blessings on us all

It’s not a free ride, but you get what you need
Somehow this body just knows how to breathe 
Color of a sunset, the wonder of a snow
How you ever recover from losing someone?

Somehow you keep going when the going gets rough

you - think it’s not even possible - and then you’re falling in love
The hug of another, a look in the eye
A touch of emotion;
how a tear knows when to cry

To feel what it’s like to move in this skin

The body responds; a friend lets you in

The current washes over, pulls you down the road
A cut knows to heal; a smile never get old
.

Like rain, like rain, rain...

It will lift you up – and make you whole
Like rain it’s falling, shower blessings on us all
It’ll make you strong, comfort your soul
Like rain it’s falling, shower blessings on us all
Grace is raining down, showering blessings on us all
Track Name: Om Tare Crazy
Om Tare Tuttare, Ture, Swaha

Never will a lover’s chest feel any sorrow....

Om Tare Tuttare, Ture, Swaha

We’re never gonna survive - unless

Show me that hidden world
'cause I don't believe
in this one any longer
Track Name: Magic of Love
I'm feeling all the beauty
after meeting this little cutie
and I marvel at the wonders of love

What could make you feel this way?
Like you co-create the light of day
it can only be the magic of love
Must be the magic of love

You'll see it in the smallest things
like a blade of grass or a robin's wing
it's all beautiful and beauty is love

Springtime, find a rhyme
I'm gonna do it right this time
how could this ever be a fleeting thing?
Must be the magic of love

Give this day all you got
cause tomorrow may come and not be a lot
if one thing is constant, it's change
But don't try to hold it, can't you see?
There'll always be enough for you and me
that really is the magic of love

Stay open, stay open, stay open, stay open,
Open to the Magic of love

It's all right to me it's all light to me
this magic of love

LOVELUTION - Jim Beckwith 2011

What we don't need now is the why ask why
But what do we need to occupy?
What to do?
What's the solution?
Might we really need another revolution?

No president will ever change the system
PEOPLE want some power and you WANT TO be with 'em
I heard the good words of Gil Scott Heron
the people are resisting, and their clothes are tearing

What does it take to rearrange,
What's it like to really change?
I ask it every day of my own damn self and I see my reflection in the bloody hell

What to do?
What's the solution?
we got to start a Lovelution
start with yourself to occupy
we've got to learn to tame our - own damn minds

* I see a lovelution coming on
I'd love it to be easy but I think I might be wrong. it's probably getting worse before it gets better

but if it's gonna happen it must be - better than never
Well Come on Now, if you want a solution
You're gonna have to Join the Lovelution!
And if you do, you're gonna see
a BET-TER world for - you AND me

I WISH someday we'd JUST F*in' get it!!
why we got to be so telepathetic?
I could see it come a thousand miles away
how about we open EYES and see it - and say...

I see a lovelution coming on
I'd love it to be easy but I might be wrong.
it's probably getting worse before it gets better
but if it's gonna happen it must be - better than never

Well Come on Now, if you want a solution
You're gonna have to Join the Lovelution!
And if you do, well you're gonna see
a BET-TER world for - you AND me

I see a lovelution coming on
We'll learn to be together in the radical zone!
the world's become our living room
and we need to learn to LOVE our family - real soon.

I see a lovelution coming on
I'd love it to be easy but I might be wrong.
it's probably getting worse before it gets better
but if it's gonna happen it must be -- better than never

I see a lovelution coming on
I'd love it to be easy but I - might be wrong.
Track Name: Follow You Down
Follow you down to the red oak tree
As the air moves thick through the hollow reeds
Will you wait for me there until someone comes
To carry me, carry me down

See I have not, I have not grown cold
I have stole from men who have stole from those
With their arms so thin and their skin so old
But you are young, you are young, you are young

Then somebody laughs like it's all just for hell
As though we could not be saved from the depth of the well
But the cloth that I make is a cloth you can sell
To pay for the gossamer seeds

Names get carved in the red oak tree
Of the ones who stay and the ones who leave
I will wait for you there with these cindered bones
So follow me, follow me down
Follow me, follow me down
Follow me, follow me down
Follow me, follow me down
