Introduction 01:28
Amidst this blowing solitude, I've crossed so many bridges To stroke the earth for the marital rights To be one with it's hot visage. I caught the shadow of the seagull fly The kind of Day that shows you the Moon And if I could melt into this sand, Understand, not a moment too soon So why do I return to this place? Again and again and again! To touch it, to smell it, to hear the taste Of the elements from which I began But to others I say it loud and clear It is not peace that I find in return But rather, the concept gestation Of a festering seed that yearns

Eu Sinto 03:08
My heart is aching as I try to survive On the bare necessities that keep myself alive While in tandem your love tells me, I must decide If I live on your 'island' to be a loving wife It's hard to know the right way to go when in love It's hard to say the right go to way when in love I don't want to hurt you, I don't want to lose you I don't want to feel you, thinking of me sad, no Eu sinto sua falta saudade de voce Eu sinto sua falta saudade te amo Love spectacular! Love is divine! Love is so transient in our time, in our time
3.
Oh, that transient love- Trans-continental has left me in a State. Open the floodgates to my nurturing side. Hear the whimper of maternal cries? "AY!" I wanted to want your life I wanted to be who you wanted me to be You wanted me to want what you wanted I wanted to want what you wanted me to want Transient love, oh stay abreast How could I fall asleep on your chest? In between sheets is the whole world Isolation is understood So take a deep breath, don't waste your time You've got so much to give, and you better treat it right Your heart is beating, vitals signs fine Release those thoughts of deprecation and let out what's inside So break it down, release the doubt, make your good sounds...
4.
So come on tell me I'm not the only one Who still feels cold under this hot Sun Am I the only dying girl in New York? Whose had the veil lifted from our world And when the Sun is hidden And I can't see reason And when the wind is pushing More than I can take I think of all the teachers And of all the knowledge I can count to seven long enough to raise my light Don't tell me it's a solitary tune To feel that silver love of the moon Aren't we all under the same sky? Always looking us in the eye
5.
I found paradise inside your arms You're my true vice deflecting harm I grow weak and lose my will To see we're not the center of the world Enveloped in warmth, I do not feel the outside world You're a shield wielding me impaired So it is said that love will transform Unite wisdom with compassion If love, love, love is all we need Are we standing on our feet? I won't lose sight of all the pain That gets me here to this place of understanding
6.
Desire, Denial He's distant, she's fragile Bar closing, imposing Decision, go with him? Drink one more, for rapport He's headed for the door She wants him, to want her That's not what, he's there for The sidewalk, he's smoking He's waiting, she's thinking He's leaving, she follows They talk but, it's hollow His bedroom, they are one subconscious devotion But neither will trust it Beyond this, intimate And he says, "No one will understand the depth of my cold heart, no! All the things spinning in my head are so fucked up." And she says, "No one would appreciate the love that I could give. La la la la la la ah-lah" The morning, the daylight Wash away their hot night To erase affection, Cut off that connection She sighs and finds her clothes Quietly she tiptoes He opens his eyes to Solitude he's used to And he says, "No one will understand the depth of my cold heart, no! All the things spinning in my head are so fucked up." And she says, "No one would appreciate the love that I could give. La la la la la la ah-lah"
7.
The light that shines across your eyes Through morning dew and morning light The world is big my humble pie Don't disregard your will to fly For I would greet you anywhere, It's such a gift to have you there But my world feels so small Oh I can't break these walls My world feels so small, No I can't move at all In between the undertow And riptide that flipped me over I reached an arm for certainty That promptly slammed a wave on me It takes so many times to know There is no solid way to go But my world feels so small Oh I can't break these walls My world feels so small, No I can't move at all
8.
Oh, to wade in Ocean Blue with you Is there anything more inviting? Yet at times more terrifying As Ocean Blue The widest flat horizon one could ever rest their gaze Sends calm to the mind and a heart of romance set ablaze
9.
The seagulls flying past And I'm having such a blast But where can I make my art? And I see where Lisa lives And I'm hoping she still is Diggin' the seaside life And I like to start things off with a little sense of humor To get me where I gotta go Well I like to start things off with a little sense of humor To get me where I gotta go Well I see the surfer scene And they're looking so serine But where did they park their cars? And I'm driving all around Till I hear a good sound Gotta find a different access Well I see they are all full-so I'll sing another tune And find a different access Ah access me Access my body Access me, oh yeah Access me Access my body Access me, oh yeah Cause I like to start things off with a little sense of humor To get me where I gotta go Yes, I like to start things off with a little sense of humor To get me where I gotta go Well I'm pushing on through it and seeing an improvement But lord, I can get so low So I like to start things off with a little sense of humor To get me where I gotta go Ah access me Access my body Access me, oh yeah Access me Access my body Access me, oh yeah
10.
Mourning the break up of ---------- took time As with any deep separation It doesn't disappear, it changes And joins the drifting sands' rotations Churning up a new set of dreams Rushing water to fill the empty space Sucking back into it's swell Till unrecognizable left that place Time will tell you of your waves As measures of your ebb and flows But your flares, your dips, your lashes and pangs Won't let you see it so Well I think it's ok to sink To the bottom of your ocean floor To scrape, and reach, and tug at a solid Know what you're living down for For when you look up To that tiny light from the Sun Observe the float to the sparkling surface And feel how just letting go Allows your body to find it's way With an agile mind in tow And that's when you ask yourself, "Did I even want to know?"
11.
Art is the fire running through all living things It is the moment between two imposing The climax of the work of thought and feeling Oh, it sends your whole world flying Without even trying Thank you for being here with me in the deep I'd love to leave you with something you could keep I have no idea what that should be Oh, it sends your whole world flying Without even trying
12.
Isn't it a pity that not too many see That we're all the same, so in you is me Remember to be loving, remember to be kind When the world is ending I will throw you a line Everything that happens from a kiss to a growing tree Is an act of unconditional love for all to see How was I so blind to the sight of it all? How did I not listen without hearing that call? Naturally I face every obstacle head on With the love that shows me what is real and clear, so (stream of consciousness follows)
