Lyrics:

The Rain

memories, memories
are stormin' through my mind
'bout all the things i've done
and all the things i've thought and
all of the things i've tried
and some of those thoughts
the ones born from fear
i sometimes want to ignore

but the rain, the rain, the rain
teaches comfort 
just let that old storm
do what it was made for

let it wash through, all your wounds
and notice that today you're
not afraid, of the dark anymore

keep movin' on, keep movin' strong
your path will make itself clear
just let go, let go of 
the need to control what you hear

because the rain, the rain, the rain
teaches patience just
let that old storm
do what it was made for

let it wash through all your wounds
and notice that today you're
not afraid, you are
not quite so afraid, of the dark anymore


I Will Stay

well i could rent out this room and
you could stay through june
the foundation here is strong
with a fridge full of compromise and
a backyard full of leaves and
breezes, that listen to every word

isn't that the reason we come home
to be seen and heard?

well what is true, anyway?
as real as the ground makin' no sound
i will stay

you can arrive with your slate as
clear as you can make it
none of us are perfect and 
the best times are when 
we don't take it so seriously, anyway
and so pack up your baggage nice and tight
your presence is bein' called to a place where 
the counters are not always so clean but
we're still in a living flight; and 
i've got to say, i've got to say that
the walls, they are
warmer when you're around

that's what happens when
friendship retires from bein' lost, and
starts bein' found

well what is cool, anyway?
as real as the ground makin' no sound
i will stay

as real as the ground makin' every sound
i will stay
i will stay
i will stay


Revere

these trees are tellin' me that i can believe
a story about you, a story about me
one that's tellin' us constantly of a
life never-ending

yes we are these roots and we are these leaves
growin' down, reachin' up in the very same moment
just like these human bodies

but you don't need me to tell you that story
just wake up and feel the mornin' glory 
and ask yourself just one question

are you still breathin'? 

and if yes then ok
if yes then we're all ok
'cause we've got another day

so let's learn all the ways we can celebrate
let's talk about ways to integrate
jump into the party we are one heart
we are one interconnected pulse of life
     one pulse of life, we are
          one pulse
                one pulse of life

yes we are both the light and the dark
the nothingness and the spark 
that's who we are
and it's our duties as revolutionaries 
this grand design is about
how we absorb, and how we shine

and we already know this story
the one about midnight and mornin' glories
so let's ask ourselves just one question

are we still dreamin'?

and if no that's ok
if no that is ok, we are ok
'cause we've got another day

when we can watch the night turn into that day
and then let it all slip away
then we've stumbled onto the miracle
the paradoxical wisdom
and that is the way
(at least that is my way)

and this is my never-ending story
the one about life and death and glory
and if i had just one question
you can bet i would wake up every day
and i would say

am i still here?

'cause if i'm still here
then I will revere

and so am i, am i, am i still here?
oh yes i am, i am, i am, i am
so i revere
all that i do see and i do hear
i revere
will you come with me
and let's revere?


Teach Me

teach me how to be just like a tree
ever-giving, ever-receiving
teach me how to be

teach me how to be like a bird
soaring, flying, surrender trying
teach me how to be

oh the answers are within
and i am ready to begin, i'm listening
teach me

teach me how to be just like the sky
opening and accepting of 
every cloud passing by

oh please grace me the courage
to feel the touch 
of all the love that i've been gifted
so i can offer it back up

i offer you love

oh beauty starts within
and i am ready to begin, to let it be seen

life resides within
the greatest gift we've been give
is to be

i am the tree
you are the bird flyin' 
we are the sky opening 
now let's plant these seeds

oh love, is to be
and love, it is you and it is me
and so love, now i bow my head in humility
and i start by sayin'
    teach me
         teach me


The Outside

I cannot find too many examples
of a love, of a love so fine
there is no rest, and there is no peace
livin' in the shadows, of our weakened minds

and so we've got to find
we've got to start relyin' on
we've got to make our way into
the outside
(welcome to the outside)

this is the place where
you get to be any old thing you need
anything at all

and there is no right 
and there is no wrong
just a bunch of us
livin' into our sacred songs

and so we've got to find
we've got to start relyin' on
we've got to make our way into
   the outside
      the outside

and so i'm comin' into, comin' into
the outside
and i wonder what we can find?

and it does not matter what we're hidin' from
this is where we, where we become
all that we love 
   'cause love it is on
        the outside

it's on the outside
the outside of your mind
the outside of all that divides

Work of Art

there's a burnin' in my heart
and it seems to appear
when everything else falls apart
so i'm gonna send my love
to those monsters in the dark
'cause they're reminding me
life comes together much better as a
work of art

well i could only go so far
you know every day is a prison when
you can't be who you really are
so this time i'm gonna send my love
to those monsters in the dark
'cause they're reminding me
life comes together so much better as a
work of art

i'm gonna get some good 
sleep tonight
'cause now i've got my 
head screwed on right
and so you can tell 
all those bullies and their barks
that i'm just settlin' in
plantin' my feet down
on the ground
of my work of art

there's a burnin' in my heart
and it seems to appear
when everything else falls apart
