Breathe
Lyrics: g.breedlove Music: g. Breedlove/ v.Randle

we are learning to breathe under water
on this path as a child of the moon
though the mind wants to stay in some yesterday your heart and your soul dance in time and in tune with everything, hmm everything

we are learning to fly without moving
through the eyes of the angels with wings
though the voice in the well cries there’s comfort in hell

your spirit is one with the wind in the trees
and everything, hmm everything

losing yourself to be more yourself
that’s what the healers they say
when you come to the shore at the end of the day to pray

we are learning to dream with eyes open
as we vision a world without greed
all of us bleed when some human need goes unanswered love is everything
hmmm, everything
just everything

I mean everything

Language of light
lyrics g. breedlove music g. Breedlove/ j.wolf

once my heart was broken I began to live the lie crawled into that tiny space where dreams go to die collected glass, and weaponry that tiny hands can hold built myself a room of steel, pretending to be bold, and I made some things
even bought some wings
that wouldn’t fly
there was so much more, behind every door
but who am I?

then I heard about the language of light,

a kaleidoscope of color in the night
and a quiet voice, whispering of choice you will live

when you forgive..

first I was uncertain how to stand in this new place
knowing I could not forgive what I could not face
I needed love’s community, I reached for you and you reached for me and all the possibility of now
and I still fall sometimes but I reach behind and grab a hand
I can finally see spirit moves through me, I understand

so I sing about the language of light
a kaleidoscope of color in the night
and a quiet voice whispering of choice-
you will live– you will live–
it’s allowing it’s a letting
it’s a being not a getting
inside laughter inside grace
it’s your hand upon my face
it’s my voice on your skin sinking deeper within to the place where you know
it’s alright

I am open and free, letting light shine through me I will honor the ones who have come before me
I forgive everyone, everyone forgives me
I am open my heart, I am butterfly free

And I will fly

fly fly fly

Cover me
Lyrics: g. Breedlove music: g. breedlove, s. Doty, j.Wolf

there’s a little girl inside me

and she’s crying from the pain

of a past she can’t remember

and a place she can not name

there’s a little girl who struggles

trying hard to understand

how her innocence was stolen

at the mercy of his hands

this memory outlives you

so I’m trying to forgive you on my own

but I’m not alone

there are millions of us healing

growing stronger by revealing what is wrong

RAISE YOUR VOICE SING YOUR SONG

 

Cover me, you are covered little girl

You will rise in a world

where nobody turns away, afraid to look

afraid to say

Love will hold us where we stand

use our power use our hands

to keep you from harms way

come and free a soul today

come and free a soul today

come and free your soul today

 

we are done with feeling sorry

playing small and laying low

if you hear the call then answer

there is no place we won’t go

every little girl is mine, every woman hurt is me

tell the sista standing near you

YOU SUPPORT HER RIGHT TO BE

 

this memory outlives you, so I’m going to forgive you

on my own—but I’m not alone

there are millions of us healing

growing stronger by revealing

what is wrong

RAISE YOUR VOICE SING YOUR SONG

 

Cover me, you are covered little girl

You will rise in a world

ahere nobody turns away

afraid to look, afraid to say

Love will hold us where we stand

use our power, use our hands

To keep you from harms way

Come and free your soul today

Come and free your soul today

Come and free your soul today

Healers

g.Breedlove

this is a song about coming together

this is a song about how

word I am word and I know how to serve

this is a song about now

somebody told us to love one another

quiet the mind and be still

now is the time to believe who you are

marry your soul with your will

and I say ahhhhh ha  ahhhhhh ha

we are the ones who will heal

now is the time to believe who you are

remember, only love is real

this is a song about healing the healer

opening hearts with a sound

changing the world with all of our hands

together, standing our ground

and I say ahhhhhh ha ahhhhhhh ha

we are the ones who will heal

now is the time to believe who you are

remember, only love is real

ahhhhhh ha

ahhhhhh ha

ahhhhhh ha

haaaaaaaaa
