Lyrics for The Natural Minor

Lyrics for The Natural Minor

1/ Autumn Sky

Pacific sky
Midwestern girl
Seeking her rhythm / her internal rhythm
Drinking the moonlight
Watching the tide rise
Feeling that rhythm align with her rhythm

You’re coming into what you need
Fuel that curiosity
And you don’t want to go with me / oh and you don’t want to go
Coming into what is right
Feeling it again tonight
And you don’t want to go with me / why don’t you want to go

And that devil gonna come up right
You know he wants to hold you tight now
And that devil gonna come up right
You know he wants to hold you tight

Stand up and face the wind
With sandy toes, I’m smiling
I’m running to the ocean
Gotta drown the notion of control
I want her to take me
Feel those strong waves crashing down on my back
A salty air attack...yes

Under an Autumn sky...is where I said goodbye.

2/ Fire Burned Bright

Isn’t this the way it should be, he said
Your face and a cool night breeze
On the edge of time, it seems
A starry sky, the world, and you and me.

By the fire that night they spoke of their plans
They’re going to run off and explore ancient lands
The fire burned bright to let them light their great plans
The fire burned bright to let them light their great plans
Oh this feeling, you want to understand.

Racing off back to her house at the break of dawn
Slipping under her sheets before her mother knows she’s been gone
Her heart is bursting like its never done before
Oh her heart is bigger now than its ever felt before
Filled with the promise of love and light and life forever more.

He is sitting on the edge of a stony riverbed
With the orange sun rising, and the memory of what she said
Her sweet words become the music in his head
This innocent love in life will always be led back to their innocence.

3/ Lock & Key

It isn’t always what it seems when trying to interpret your dreams
You are always running circles around the stars
A heart is anchored in one place when fighting off an old disgrace
And the secret lies within the lock and key
The key

Wandering into a world of imaginary faces
Although life extends her arms and offers sweet embraces
Running through that memory now, you held it in the past
You can always let go of those things they will not last
Hey you’re in it now, reminded somehow
Give into love - you can’t refuse

You’ve got a secret, what is your secret, oh share this secret world-
I can feel it/
You’ve got a secret, what is your secret, oh share this secret world-
I can feel it
You’ve got a secret, what is your secret, oh share this secret world
with me....

I can feel it rising up like sun and stream

You’ve got a secret - what is your secret

4/ State of Confusion

Why the sudden state of confusion 
Tell me, what happened along the way
Oh that sweet light of clarity is always enticing me
I reach for her everyday

My mind wanders in too many directions at once
And I can get lost along the way
Take me now to simple days and nights where I can lay and gaze at that sky

I’m not searching for perfection
I need to feel those tears on my face
Slow down and take a breath
Give life a chance to settle into place

 

 

5/ What a Surprise

Follow the leader thru wind and the rain
They are selling ideas, and healing the pain
So busy making sure that you’re step is in time
You’re forgetting the purpose of falling out of line

What a surprise that your heart is heavy
What a surprise that its’ weight makes you weary
This is your life - are you living sincerely

I need to stop again now just to hear myself think
Questions erupt in my head they leave me feeling week 
Why can’t I be a little stronger
Why don’t I try a little harder
Oh I feel the tables turn to me
The words I need to face for myself

What a surprise that your heart is heavy
What a surprise that its’ weight makes you weary
This is your life - are you living sincerely?

If your confidence ceases, and your heart breaks to pieces
Pick them up and tie the sashes
And you’ll rise up through the ashes
Like the phoenix, growing strong
Never led to believe that you will never be fulfilling your potential
As you are always free and you can finish what you came for

Now here is your moment so step up, it’s time
You’ve been given an answer to the question, riddle and rhyme
As these opportunities tend to fly by
You’ve got to take a hold of what you can, and what you need will always be near by

What a surprise that your heart needs healing
What a surprise that it will be receiving
This is your life - you direct it freely
You need to say that out loud and clearly
Better that it’s coming from you, than just me
Start living your life out loud and clearly

6/ Warriors Heart

When it rolled in like thunder
All those moments that you hold inside
When we all come together now
You ain’t got nothing to hide
I knew it right from the start..
You’re greatness of spirit
and your Warriors heart

7/ The Natural Minor

I am in love/
I am in love again/
And the fool has taken over me/

I’m in love you see I’ve got to sing in a minor key/
Because a major key would be too pretty and easy/

Oh the fool....this vulnerability
Tends to sneak up on me
With admirable accuracy
the piercing quality...

I’m in love you see I’ve got to sing in a minor key
Because a major key would be too pretty and easy

The minor key does not diminish loves beauty - 
It holds the mystery beneath the surfaces I seek

8/ Conversation

Conversation is a dead end
A loaded silence
The thoughts in my head

Does not change the way 
I want you in my hands
I like to whisper to you
You like to kiss my neck

Whether you are the good girl
Or if you are the mistress
Sometimes and open heart
Can be swallowed in secrets

The moment has slipped now into a new dimension
Where I am feeling free of a broken heart's protection
And I don't know which way to turn

Here we go...

9/ Misgivings

I know that it is easy to fall behind
When my thoughts seem to be devoted only to time
But I will find a way-  I will find a way

When the lights are dark 
And the sound is turned down
And the things that you hold near are nowhere to be found
You will find a way - You will find a way

I can feel the light on my face
I will heal the blood in my veins
And know that I'm real within this human race
When I let go and I let life embrace me

10/ Storyteller

It begins so slowly
With a Storyteller's heart
You shy away because you don't know where to start

You know you're playing with lightening
I feel it pulsing through
Becomes the very voice that breathes inside of you

Our conversation is surprising 
When you read between these lines
Misgivings come to surface
Under an Autumn sky
When the fire burns inside you
Lock and key give a clue
And the Minor on the rise

You know you're playing with lightening
I feel it pulsing through
Becomes the very voice that breathes inside of you

And it all comes down to... your fear and your love

Lyrics for The Box Borealis

Lyrics for The Box Borealis

1/ The Box Borealis

My own
Holding and trusting
Follow the heart of

Answer
Thrill me
Decide
My own

My own
Holding and trusting
Follow the heart of

All night
Listen
Scattering
My own

Peace and Love
Feel the answer 
You

 

2/ Moving Scene

Focus shifting
Eye is open
Perfect timing now what will you say
Sun is rising 
In its’ glory
Stretching arms of light beyond the way

You want to call into it 
All the things you’ve done now
You want to go right through it
And you know it will always Be

Oh you said you always wanted to

Stories within faces you find
Solid foundation becomes the fire

Oh you said you always wanted to

All the seasons turn into one song
And the Elements surround us now
All the reasons we came in for it
And this fever that is growing hot

Oh the growing fever
Coming closer to the end now
Balancing the need
Giving all your Love away somehow

Heart has gone astray

All I can take

Closer to the bend

Closer to the break

 

3/ Moon and Pollution

Now Love be called
How blood be drawn

Turning darkness
Shapeless wind
Finding all the angles 
Against your skin

We took the leap of faith - I felt it
Name fell from the sky
And landed on my tongue

It landed as Love

Now Love be called
How blood be drawn

Held the hand of darkness as the Moon is shining through
The light will guide you to the edge of what you thought you knew
What do you want to say to me now - 
That all the sacrifice would somehow 
Be enough to carry

To carry

Now Love be called
How blood be drawn


4/ The Magnetic North

We’re here and Now

Quiet as the dawn grows slowly
Magnetic Northern sound 
Silencing
Wind beneath the howl
Wolves lingering 
Dyea is the name

Holy cape and lore, you know
We’re here and now

Listening in Love 
Hold this place
The feeling is too dark for
My heartbeat

If it wasn’t what you want

It’s Home

Holy cape and lore, you know
 

 

 

 

 

5/ Darkroom Double

Let go
Say, come down easier
I know the fear will wash away
Won’t you say, Come down easier
I know the fear will wash away - it will wash away

Oh you’ve got that fever rising
Call the fight
Mystified in hindsight
Oh it calls you to, to get up and be it
Move through at lightening speed
Say you’re mystified

Fear to let go
Say, come down easier
I know that fear will wash away
Won’t you say, Come down easier
I know, I know a better day
A better day

Got that fever rising high
Oh You found the fire
Feeling right in hindsight
Say you’re mystified

Let Go
Let Go

Fear will wash away
Fear will wash away

Say Come down
Come down...Easier

Gotta let it go

Let Go

 

6/ Solace Sandwich

What secret words of simple pleasure
The only way to find surrender
Feel the beat now, find the movement
You heed the sound so flows the current

You want it so bad, you want it now

Free in time... I’m free
Free in time I’m taking shape
Symphonies fade out
The symphony will fade away

Free in time, taking shape
A Symphony 
One escape

Free in time, taking shape
A Symphony is on the way up
Free in time / taking shape 
Wanting all
The great escape

When you listen closely, have you found a better way
In a darkened hour, when the colors fade to gray
Find simple pleasure in the sweet sounds abound
Oh a new surrender when the melody is found

 

7/ I know...

Small seed
Releasing light
It is right

When she said it wasn’t safe,
And I can’t believe this light
Is right

Then she said it was enough 
And now 
You call to me
I feel the light
It is right

After all 
You need 
Release
In Fear
 

8/ I Didn’t Look

Come through my Love
Now hear the voice
That ran away
Didn’t have a choice
Became the Ghost
Of what once was
Now a disappearing act
Back into the dust
Don’t lose yourself in it..
 

9/ Alter Eagle

Wasting all the words again
Cannot get the point across
All too familiar territory
I’ve been in chains

Here lie the ties that bind us
Here lie, here lie the ties that bind

I breathe, I breathe, I breathe this breath I need
I follow this breath I breathe
I bleed, I bleed, I bleed into this Light I see

Alter Eagle sings her song
Can you feel her heartbeat
Carry on
And on and on and on..

Here lie, here lie the ties that bind
They bind us
They bind us

 

10/ The Lonely Quiet

Say it how you want to but I called it again
You try to reach out 
I won’t let you in
Now this feels empty
Waiting to find out
I’m turning the other way while 
You walk the line

Oh we know that this isn’t working
The lonely quiet expands the rhythm

You say that you’ll grow too 
And I’ll want to begin again
All things that we’ve waited for 
Will start to begin
You say that it’s easy
I’ll hold you to that
Remember the reasons of this Love
Now I believe in that

We find that we want to
The new World will begin
I feel that pulsing movement
Lives under the skin
I’m singing to you now
So open those ears
Get outside of your own head and release the tears that brought us here

I know it isn’t what we wished for
In one perfect moment
All that we strive for

A perfect harmony...
