REACH OUT TO LIFE 

  (Lyrics Marshall Rosenberg)

WE’RE AFRAID TO GIVE

WE’RE AFRAID TO LIVE

SO MANY TIMES

IN SO MANY WAYS

 

LIKE LEAVES TO SUN

LIKE PLANTS TO RAIN

LIKE BIRDS TO GRAIN

REACH OUT TO LIFE

 

NOW LET’S CELEBRATE THE JOYS OF LIFE

THE JOYS OF LIFE

EACH LITTLE BREATH FROM BIRTH TO DEATH

NOW LET’S CLEBRATE !

 

LIKE LEAVES TO SUN

LIKE PLANTS TO RAIN

LIKE BIRDS TO GRAIN

REACH OUT TO LIFE

      LIFE’S SWEET FLOW 

    (Lyrics Marshall Rosenberg)

I WANNA STAY 

IN TOUCH WITH LIFE’S SWEET FLOW

AND SPREAD LOVING WAVES 

WHEREVER I GO

 

I WANT EVERYTHING

THAT I SAY OR DO

TO BRING STRENGTH WARMTH AND

LIGHT TO YOU

 

I LIKE BEING AWARE I DON’T HAVE TO ACHIEVE

AND THAT LIFE IS A GIFT WE HAVE ONLY TO RECEIVE

I WANNA STAY IN TOUCH WITH LIFE’S SWEET FLOW

 

​     SEE ME BEAUTIFUL 

     (Lyrics Red Grammer)

OH SEE ME BEAUTIFUL

LOOK FOR THE BEST IN ME

THAT’S WHAT I REALLY AM

AND ALL I WANT TO BE

IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME

IT MAY BE HARD TO FIND

BUT SEE ME BEAUTIFUL

 

OH SEE ME BEAUTIFUL

EACH AND EVERY DAY

COULD YOU TAKE A CHANCE

PLEASE COULD YOU FIND A WAY

TO SEE ME SHINING THROUGH

IN EVERYTHING I DO

AND SEE ME BEAUTIFUL

THAT’S WHAT  I REALLY AM

 

   I WISH I COULD REMEMBER 

      (Lyrics Marshall Rosenberg)

I WISH I COULD REMEMBER

THERE’S SOMETHING OF WORTH IN ME

WHEN THE DEPTH OF MY SELF

SHOWS THROUGH

AND YOU SAY NO TO WHAT YOU SEE

 

I WISH I COULD REMEMBER

 

I POURED MY SELF OUT TO YOU

THAT WASN’T WISE

I CAME AWAY FEELIN LIKE I WAS

SOME UNWANTED MERCHANDISE

 

I WISH I COULD REMEMBER

 

AND I SURE HATE TO SEE 

ALL THE POWER I GIVE AWAY

LETTING WHETHER I CARE FOR MY SELF 

DEPEND ON WHAT YOU SAY 

            GIVEN TO 

    (Lyrics Ruth Bebermeyer)

 

I NEVER FEEL MORE GIVEN TO

THAN WHEN YOU TAKE FROM ME

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND

THE JOY I FEEL

WHEN I CARE FOR YOU

AND YOU KNOW MY GIVING ISN’T DONE

TO PUT YOU IN MY DEBT

BUT BECAUSE I WANT TO LIVE

THE LOVE I FEEL FOR YOU

 

TO RECEIVE WITH GRACE

MAY BE THE GREATEST GIVING

YOU KNOW THERE’S NO WAY

THAT I CAN SEPARATE THE TWO

 

WHEN YOU GIVE TO ME

I GIVE YOU MY RECEIVING

AND WHEN YOU TAKE FROM ME

I FEEL SO GIVEN TO

            HEY SUN 

 (Lyrics Marshall Rosenberg)

LET’S DANCE WITH THE BEES

WHILE THEY POLINATE

LET’S DANCE WITH THE WOLVES

AND DANCE AWAY THEIR HATE

 

HEY SUN THERE YOU ARE

I’VE BEEN WIATING FOR YOUR GLOW

NOW I’LL SIT AND SOAK YOU IN

AND FEEL THE PAIN IN ME GO

FEEL THE PAIN THE PAIN IN ME GO

HEY SUN THERE YOU ARE

 

TODAY IS A DAY

TO CELEBRATE

THE LIFE WE CAN CREATE

AND MOVE AHEAD

WITH HEARTS OF JOY

TO HEAL AND LIBERATE

HEY SUN THERE YOU ARE

I’VE BEEN WIATING FOR YOUR GLOW

NOW I’LL SIT AND SOAK YOU IN

AND FEEL THE PAIN IN ME GO

FEEL THE PAIN THE PAIN IN ME GO

HEY SUN THERE YOU ARE

    WHY THE THRILL WHEN WE KILL 

        (Lyrics from Marshall Rosenberg)

WHY DO WE IMPRISON

OUR GENTLEST MEN 

AND KILL THEM OFF WHEN

THEY COME HOME AGAIN

 

WHY THE THRILL WHEN WE KILL ?

 

SOME WOULDN'T GO TO VIETNAM

THEY WOULD’NT MURDER THEY WOULDN’T DROP THE BOMB

SOME WENT TO CANADA AND OTHERS DID TIME

WHY IS GREED LEGAL AND LOVE A CRIME

 

WHY THE THRILL WHEN WE KILL ?

I WANT TO LIVE COMPASSIONATELY (Lyrics from Marshall Rosenberg)

IM NOT EXACTLY SATISFIED WITH EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN DOING

IM AT A TIME OF MY LIFE WHEN MY GOALS NEED REVIEWING

I’VE TAKEN SOME CHANCES AND MORE THAN ONCE

I’VE GOTTEN MY FINGERS BURNT

AND DONE SOME THINGS I WOULDN’T HAVE DONE

IF I KNEW WHAT I SINCE HAVE LEARNT

I WANT TO LIVE COMPASSIONATELY

 AT EACH AND EVERY OPPORTUNITY

I WANNA GIVE AWAY ALLTHE LOVE I HAVE TO GIVE

I WANT TO LIVE COMPASSIONATELY

 

IM ADDING TO THE LIST OF PEOPLE THAT I CALL FAMILY

I WANT THAT LIST TO INCLUDE EVERYONE WHO IS WAS OR EVER WILL BE

                 ODE TO JOHN WAYNE 

                   (Lyrics Marshall Rosenberg)

I GREW UP BELIEVING THAT WHAT WAS EXPECTED OF ME

WAS TO PROVE HOW STRONG AND VIOLENT I COULD BE

 

BUT NOW JOHN WAYNE IS NO LONGER MY HERO

AND I’M GOING TO ALLOW GENTLENESS TO SHOW

 

I’VE BEEN AFRAID TO ADMIT IT WHEN I’VE BEEN LONELY OR SAD

ITHOUGHT FEELINGS WERE WEAKNESS AND I THOUGHT WEAKNESS WAS BAD

 

BUT NOW JOHN WAYNE IS NO LONGER MY HERO

AND I’M GOING TO ALLOW GENTLENESS TO SHOW

AND I’VE EXPLOITED WOMEN TREATING THEM AS LESS THAN ME

AND HELD UP NOTCHES ON MY BELT FOR ALL MY BUDDIES TO SEE

DO YOU DREAM (Lyrics from Marshall Rosenberg)

 

DO YOU DREAM THE SAME DREAMS I DREAM

I WONDER IF WE VALUE THE SAME THINGS

I LOVE THE JOY I LOVE THE TENDRENESS

HONESTY AND EMPATHY BRINGS

 

DO YOU DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE EACH PERSON

IS ALWAYS REVERED AND NOT JUST SOME COG

AND MISTAKES DON’T REQUIRE DAMNATION OR HELLFIRE

JUST A LITTLE LOVING DIALOGUE ?

 

DO YOU DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE TOUCHING

ENRICHES, NURTURES AND SOOTHES

WHERE PEOPLE ARE WILING TO SAY « NO » TO KILLING

AND ARABS DANCE IN PEACE WITH THE JEWS
