Track Name: Very Bad Boy
Verse 1
I’ve been walking down the streets at night
seen my brothers on them concrete sides
Seen my sisters sleeping park bench nights
and I know that could be me in another life
cause it reminds me of my own long nights
my afraid and alone long nights
my so far from home long nights
those when I couldn’t find my way to the light
but now I hear the echo the reverberation of creation rattle my bones
an inner ear sensation of elation
filling me and willing me to amplify possibility
to follow love blindly

Chorus
Yes I know that I have done some wrong
and I can be at times a very bad boy
I pray one day you can forgive me because I
found my way to love again

Verse 2
Beauty in the eyes of the beholder makes one bolder
to embody the prerogative of unfolding
space and time and the universal mind in the symphony of life
there is no wrong note
every voice is right, perfectly in tune
syncopated deep in our roots with the beating mother’s womb
and the sun, the radiant one and truth

Bridge
beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder
SO BEHOLD HER
I have found my way to love again
I have found my way to love
Track Name: Ballad of a Beloved Son
Verse 1
Everything I’ve done my son I’ve done for you because one day you will grow
Everything I’ve got I’ve given freely from my whole and loving soul
I pray for love my son I pray for you
Because one day you will go and leave our loving home

Chorus
Well the world can be cruel but you don’t have to, be cruel
You don’t have to, be cruel
You don’t have to, be cruel
Well the world can be cold, so take your jacket

Verse 2
I can see your keen and interested in life so get out there and learn
Get into the garden son get in the dirt, oops I think you ate a worm
I can see the stars are shining in your eyes
And like the sun I know you burn because you shine with every turn

Verse 3
Sitting in the darkened corner of your room, I watch you as you sleep
Looking so peaceful and so serene, as you’re laying in the sheets
Well this is my attempt my son to explain to you
That every word of this is true, that I’m singing in this tune
Track Name: Force of Love
Sometimes all I can see is sorrow and suffering in humanity
I resolve my heart and mind to be the change that I wish to see
There’s nothing to fear here but fear itself dear don’t fall victim to the lies
I’ve come to realize the highest calling is to love all life

We’ve got to take the hand of those we can
We’ve got to open our hearts to our fellow man

Let the force of Love be all that stands between us

Sometimes all i can see is pain and suffering on my Facebook feed
I resolve my heart and mind to be the love that I wish to see
There’s nothing to fear here but fear itself dear don’t fall victim to the lies
I’ve come to realize the highest calling is to love all life
