Track Name: Learning to be patient
Gradually I'm stopping the fight
Accepting all the roles in my life
Knowing that the answers are not in my mind
Learning to be patient

Gradually I'm discovering myself
Accepting friendship and help
Knowing that all the events make sense
Observing the journey

Gradually I am finding the peace
Accepting life as it is
Knowing that sometimes I need to take a risk
To keep the balance

Gradually I'm trusting being me
Accepting my limits and my gifts
Knowing that is good to have dreams
Then surrendering

I am surrendering to life
Gradually stopping the fight
Accepting all the roles in my life
Learning to be patient

Gradually I'm finding my path
Accepting the failure and luck
Knowing that after the down is up
Trusting in a process

Gradually I'm following my heart
Accepting the darkness and light
Knowing that the answers are all inside
Despite the confusion
Track Name: If I choose
I am free, I am free, I am free, I am free,
I am amazing, amazing, amazing, if I choose

So I choose to fly above the limitations
I soar high To the Kingdom of my soul,
I create my world with my imagination
then I bring it to my life to my life

I can fly and reach star's constellations
I can fly and enter to the light
I expand myself beyond human Nature
So I am one with there universe around

One with the Universe around me
One with God, one with the soul
One with the world

I am one with the Universe around
me one with God, one with you, we can be free

We are free, we are free, we are free, we are free,
We are amazing, amazing, amazing, if we choose

We can choose the world in a cooperation,
Come and join the Warriors of the light,
Let's Create the world from our imagination
So we can live in a harmony and peace

We are free, we are free, we are free, we are free,
We are amazing, amazing, amazing
If we choose.
Track Name: Rainbow
The rain started pouring after the beautiful sunshine
The tears that it flowing looking into the sky,
"Remember me" - every drop was calling
"Remember me and hold in your heart"

I saw the rainbow the west Sky appearing
I saw the rainbow sunshine and Rain entwined
I saw the rainbow sky appearing
I saw the rainbow, sunshine and rain in the dance.

The rain was falling cleansing all my fears
Washing away grains of self-doubts.
The rain was falling I love the water to flood my Core,
Wiping away old self defence, I nearly drowned...

Then...
I saw the rainbow and all the hope came back to me
I saw the rainbow and I could sense the growing Trust.

Then, the storm is coming, so big and strong without the mercy.
The wind was blowing
Pushing me to fight.
I stood open arms surrendering to the environment,
I didn't want to fight, I dropped down all my Shields.

Then...
Like a rainbow after the Storm I could see you
Like a rainbow the rain I could hear
Like a rainbow after the rain you came to me
Like a rainbow after the rain you came to me
Like a rainbow After the Storm you appeared.

And now, I stay in front of you so vulnerable, like the fresh spring blossom,
I don't have any more to hide,
My last resources are gone,
I did let you go, I could not hold you any longer
But now you are back, you are back

Like a rainbow after the rain you came to me
The Rainbow After the Storm you came back
Like a rainbow after the rain I could see you
like a rainbow After the Storm you came back
You came back....
You came back.
Track Name: Willow tree
I am a willow raffled by the wind,
You are the wind so changeable and free
I have the roots so powerful and deep
You are the air who I need to breathe with.

Come closer, blow harder
Test all my strong will
I'm bending, I'm flexing
You cannot break me

Come closer, blow harder
Push all over me
I'm bending, I'm spiralling
You travel through me

Come to me my baby, find peace beside me
Hide in my thick hair, be quiet and still
I will be for you still standing in this place
Even after you are gone so you're wondering through this land...

I am a willow raffled by the wind
You are the wind so changeable and free
I have long hair so wild and sick
You are the fire who Burns, yet frees me...

Come closer blow harder

Come to me my baby
Find peace beside me
Hide in my thick hair
Be quiet and still
I will be for you
Still standing in this place
Even after you're gone
So you're wondering
Through this land

Come to me my baby
Find peace beside me
Rip out all your sorrow
Be honest and still
I do understand your need to be free
I forgive you and myself all the pain
We've gone through...
Track Name: 1000 piece puzzle
My life like 1000 piece puzzle
Each piece fits perfectly into another
The task is to find one another
Build piece by Piece a picture from a dream
And build piece by Piece a picture from a dream

Love is always open to my heart
Open my eyes to the beauty of their world
Love is always open to my heart
Opens my ears to the music of the stars
Love is always open my heart
Feeds my life with Wonder and Sparks
Love is always open to my heart
Open the door the world, and new me
And you me
Housing piece puzzle...

Over the years I've build a solid frame
Holding everything together my family, and my friends
And still, piece by Piece,
I am discovering the Missing Pieces of my masterpiece, piece by Piece

Knowing my projected predictions may have nothing to do with the truth!
With so many patchy places
My mind wonders what to do
My heart speeds up and countdown
In a seesaw effect
But my soul enjoys
The Perfection of its kind
Like a 1000 piece puzzle

Love is always since my heart...
Track Name: Gift
The wind is blowing and it's calling
And it's whispering, you are loved
So please don't worry, just be patient
Stay in stillness and have trust

You are given a gift to your heart
So big strong, you nearly exploded.
You are given a gift to your heart
And now what shall you do? I don't know!

And now I am confused
Was it only a dream?
I don't know what is real anymore

Cause the dream was so big
Cause the pull was so strong
I am fighting the game in my mind
Yet I know

I was given a gift...

How will this story unfold?
Where is the beginning, where is the end?
You are tired, you can't sleep anymore
But you trust there is Hope
Soon you will understand
All the meanings of This Love Affair

So you stop, and you feel, and you wait, and you trust, so you know!

You were given a gift to your heart
So big and strong, you nearly exploded
You are giving the gift to your heart
And soon you will understand, yes you know

The wind is blowing and it's calling,
And it's whispering, you are loved
So please don't worry, just be patient,
Stay in stillness, and have trust...
Track Name: Look into my eyes
Look into my eyes and see
All the beauty who you really are!
Look into my eyes and see
Like in a mirror who you really are

Is it you? Or is it me?
Who is the real one? Who's the other side?
Our eyes like deep blue pools
Show the Shadow and the pure light!

Look into my eyes and see
All The beauty who you really are
Look into my eyes and see
Like in a mirror who you who you love or fear

If you love me, love yourself
If you feel me, what are you afraid of?
Is there longing so what do you need?
Is there sunshine? Let it in!

Look into my eyes and see
All the beauty who you really are
Look into my eyes and see like in a mirror,
a perfection of your soul

Perfection of your soul...

You are talented, you have the gift
You have the power to create all that you need
You are so wild, you are so free
Be the inspiration for many more than me

Look into my eyes and see
All the beauty, who you really are
Look into my eyes and see
Like in a mirror the perfection of your soul.
Track Name: Today
Today I will be free from my worrying mind.
Today I will cut cords from all I don't need anymore.
Today I will look back and be so grateful for all I had,
Today I Know it, today.
Today I can understand all the pain I went through.
Today will be sharing without Fear all my truth.
Today I will look back and be so grateful for all I had.
Today I Know it, today.

And for now I am trusting
And for now I am trying
And for now I am tested to the Limit
And it's fine cause today today

One day I promise, one day

And for now I am trusting
And for now, I keep trying
And for now I'm believing and I'm dreaming that's today, today
Track Name: I am free
On a sandy beach my feet are running,
The warm sand escapes between my toes,
Free from invisible shackles,
Scadding...

On a sandy beach feeder running
Sweat like streams trickles from my temples,
Crashing waves with the rhythm of breathing,
Entwined

For every yes I used to say yes, without questions
When things go wrong I've never said no
Now I know where is the truth to follow
I am free.

On a sandy beach my feet are running
Waters power's cleansing all my past.
Every breath is sleeping without doubt
to my heart

For every yes I don't say yes without questions
When things are wrong I can say no.
Cause now I know where is the truth to follow
I'm free...

On a sandy beach my feet are running
The sand in the hourglass treacles very steadily
My life like a grain of sand
Will pass by...

But till then...
For every yes I wont say yes without questions,
When things are wrong I can say no.
Because now I know where is just to follow
I am free

For every yes we won't say yes
When things are wrong
We will say no
Cause now we know
Where is the truth to follow
We are free!
Track Name: Anam Cara
You saw the beauty in me,
so I've become so beautiful
You saw the light in me,
So I've began to shine.
You saw the love in me
So I started to love myself.
You saw the goddess in me
So I've become the Divine

You are the tool in gods hands
Opening people's hearts.
You are the perfect mirror
Allowing me to see the truth.
Now your mission is over
So you decided to go
And I am so grateful
For everything you've done
For everything you've done

I see the wisdom in you
So you become a wizard
I see the light in you
So you begin to shine
I see the love in you
So you're starting to Love Yourself
I see the Divine in you
Have you become the Divine

I am the tool in gods hands
Opening people's hearts
I am a perfect mirror
Allowing you to see the truth
Now my mission is over
So you decided to go
And I am so grateful
For everything you've done
For everything you've done

And I am so grateful
Telling you goodbye
Telling you now
Goodbye
Track Name: Black Hole
Falling asleep in your arms
Where there's no hurry, no times...
When all is fading away
Into the Velvet Dark night

Timelessness like the blue sky above
Stretches up far beyond stars...
I am disappearing into the black hole
Drifting Away From My Mind...

Falling asleep in your arms
Feeling your skin beside mine
My joys and sorrows are gone
For a rest wrapped in Velvety Sky...

Timelessness like the blue sky above
Stretches up far beyond stars
I'm disappearing into the black hole
Drifting Away From My Mind...
My mind..
Track Name: Thrive - Bonus Track

And be the light which can show the way

Don't be so serious
It's only a game
Spices it up with laughter
And you will see again
How to play

Don't be so stubborn
Relax and don't push
Come to the stillness
And you will be moved
Today match better place

Thrive my friend, do thrive
Not only survive this challenging time
Thrive my friend, do thrive

Don't be afrain Again to move

Don't be afraid again to move

Like a desert Prince, dance!
