I Will Follow You Down


I am the shadow of your shadow
You cannot lose me
You are the dream of my dreams
I’ve never been without you

I will follow you down,
As far as you can take me.
Just promise you’ll never forsake me
Or leave me alone.

My confusion has never been clearer
The face in my mirror was never
This happy before you shone your light
Into my darkened corner 

As far as you can take me.
Just promise you’ll never forsake me
Or leave me alone.

I am the door into you
And you are the door into me
We open each other to find ourselves
Waiting there inside
Lit from behind by soul love glow
Welcoming arms outstretched

I will follow you down,
As far as you can take me.
Just promise you’ll never forsake me
Or leave me alone.

My Baby


Everything is mixed up, the whole wide world is upside down                            
Yeah, it’s enough to make you think that the whole damn thing is being run by some kind of clown    
No one knows why one girl falls while another one gets to fly                                                      
Or why one boy gets to laugh while the other one has to cry                                                        
But we all know the world seems a whole lot less crazy                                                                     
When you’ve got someone who holds you and who whispers, “you’re My Baby”                 

And if you’re that lucky, if you’ve got that sort of thing
It don’t matter if she shares your name or if she wears your ring             
Just as long as when you smile at her, she smiles back
And just as long as when you kiss her, she kisses you back
Because we all know the world is a whole lot less crazy
When you’ve got that certain someone who calls you “My Baby”

Yes, we all know the world is whole lot less crazy
When you’ve got someone who calls you “My Baby”

Ps 23.2


I have no shepherd,
Nor do I want one.
I have no desire to lie down out of doors,
Though a walk beside a calm river sounds nice.
No one has jurisdiction over my soul;
And I recognize no one’s righteousness,
By any name or for anyone’s sake.
Surely, I have walked through some dark valleys, and I have seen death,
But I believe in no evil;
There is only us, my Love and me.
No staff or rod could comfort me;
Comfort requires something much softer.
I prepare my own table, in communion with all, and I recognize no one as ‘enemy’.
I cleanse myself daily, to remove life’s stains;
I have all the food and drink I could wish for.
I am less good than most, but desire always to
Show mercy and forgiveness to all.
And I will dwell in the heart of my Love
Forever.

One True Word


In our beginning there was one true word,
and the word was with us, and it was good

I’m not as greedy as I seem
I only need your memories
I only need your dreams

whisper to me that one true word,
the one real clue to why I’m living

I’m not interested in your original sin
I only want your primal light
I only need your first bright smile

whisper to me that one true word,
the one that blazes from inside

the wonder of that certain touch
the magic of loving flesh on loving flesh
not any hand, but just the one
the one that knows, the one that loves

whisper to me that one true word,
the one that touches where no one else can reach

You keep my word, and I’ll keep yours
Whisper mine to me, and I’ll shout right back to you
The one true word, the source of it all

The one true word is with us still
it remains forever true
Just whisper it to me, that one true word

Abundant Soul


She has a soul of boundless wealth,
See it there, in her deep, green eyes,
Like looking into the deepest depths.

(We’re told we will find heaven in the sky;
Hell below, with the buried dead.
But the deeper we go the closer we get to paradise.)

She runs, and when she runs
She is contained within her running;
Contained, and yet still free,
Free from the world, contained and free.

I hold her, and when I hold her,
She is as if contained within my arms,
But she is not contained, not limited.
Fluid and strong she remains, and free.

She is an angel without wings
She is the song that I sing
An angel without wings
The only song I sing

Deeper and deeper we delve
Down and down we slide
Deeper and deeper we delve
Guided by the light of her eyes

Into Your Dreams


I shall come into your dreams
as a red-brown stallion,
and you shall leap upon my back
and ride away.
We will outrun them all –
all the ghosts and all the sisters.
No one can catch us, for we run
on the winged feet of love.

The Shadows of Her Hair


“I can hide you in the shadows of my hair”, she said,
“I can hide you in the shadows of my hair.            
You’ll be safe within the luster and the shine”, she said,
“Hidden in the shadows of my hair.”

“You just crawl inside and wrap yourself in curls”, she said,
“You just crawl inside and wrap yourself in curls.
You’ll be warm within the twisting and the turns”, she said,
“Warm within the twisting of my curls.”

So I made myself as small as I could be,
And I climbed among the darkly shining strands.
Yes I made myself as small as I could be,
And I hid within the shadows of her hair.

“You can stay in there until the end of time”, she said,
“You can stay in there until the end of time.
And when all the others leave we’ll be alone”, she said,
“Alone together, at the end of time.”
