How deep is your grasp, your thorn is set. Oh crimson rose!

 

SUNSET’S KISS
Bossa Nova

Spanish lyrics
Besos de fuego en la puesta del sol
Momentos cariñosos, llamas de pasión.
Querido fuego, nunca te vas!
A mi Corazon para siempre tendrás
Antes que la luna suspira adios.

Dame tus besos en el brillo del sol,
Antes que la luna suspira adios,
Dame tus besos, son fuego del sol!

Dame tus besos con todo tu ser,
Asi, que la luna vea tu querer.
Estrellas iluminantes, no vengan ya!
Para que la luna nos libertará.
La puesta del sol para siempre sera!

Pues, dame tus besos antes que el sol se va,
Para que la luna nos libertará.
Dame tus besos, fuego serán!

English lyrics

Dedicated to the wedding of Sushil and Sugandha in India
VERSE 1
A sunset of fire has a kiss waiting there.
A moment of passion, flame in the air.
Oh sunset’s fire don’t let me go.
Send me your kisses, fire burns, hearts glow.
Before the moon’s whisper or sun’s goodbye show.

CHORUS
Give me your kisses as sun falls below,
Before the moon’s whisper steals our sunset glow.
Give me your kisses. Oh! Fire don’t let go.

VERSE 2
Kiss me at sun-set so moon comes to see.
Our love is forever; lost it won’t be.
Night stars aren’t shining brightly,
Sunset we’ll keep.
Of the moon’s whisper we are set free.
Our sunset’s forever, this is our dream.
CHORUS
Give me your kisses as sun falls below,
Before the moon’s whisper steals our sunset glow.
Give me your kisses. Oh! Fire don’t let go.

DRIFTING INTO THE BLUE
Lyrics
Blue, blue waves… Blue, blue waves
My heart beats blue waves for you

I hold my heart with anticipation
Dreaming of you, dreaming of you
I reach out my hand to hold you
I’m drifting into the blue, into the blue.

Blue, blue waters… Blue, blue waters
Swallow me into deep blue

I hold my heart with anticipation
Dreaming of you, dreaming of you
I reach out my hand to hold you
I’m drifting into the blue, into the blue.

Raging rivers, raging rivers
Carry me down to the blue

I hold my heart with anticipation
Dreaming of you, dreaming of you
I reach out my hand to hold you
I’m drifting into the blue, into the blue.

Drifting into the blue, into the blue

FOG

Verse 1

I sail through the sea, look for brilliant sunlight to breath,

Sunlight I breath, and I breath, and I breath, and I breath

Chorus 1

Let the fog lift, let me see you, so you can hear me, in the sunlight.

Let the fog lift above the ocean, so you can see me, as the waves fall.

Verse 2

The day the storm comes, thunder shakes the sea, rolling waves carry me.

Pain I breath, Pain I breath Pain I breath Pain I breath.

Chorus 2

Let the fog lift, let the sun shine, so you can heal me, of my sorrow.

Let the fog lift, so I can see you, beyond the sunlight and the shadow.

Verse 3

Alone in the sea of friendly faces, but no one sees me.

Loneliness I breath, and I breath, and I breath, and I breath

Chorus 1

Let the fog lift, let me see you, so you can hear me, in the sunlight.

Let the fog lift above the ocean, so you can see me, as the waves fall.

Verse 4

Sailing alone, when the rain falls, my tears I breath.

Tears I breath, Tears I breath, Tears I breath, Tears I breath,

Chorus 2

Let the fog lift, let the sun shine, so you can heal me, of my sorrow.

Let the fog lift, so I can see you, beyond the sunlight and the shadow.

Coda

I am speaking but my words are lost,

In a maze of refined phrase.

Yet I breath, Yet I breath, Yet I breath.

 


ALBUM: ELEMENTS

 

 

 

  1. NORTHERN LIGHTS SHOW

Wandering lace of metallic glow.

Wistful feathers dance to earth’s lonely song.

Streaming lights; the sky’s rainbow show.

Reach to touch, floating waves of firey light.

Far away they run.

Mystic air glances down,

as we say goodbye,

to our lonely song.

Dancing rays; my heart’s gentle glow.

Reach to touch, far away,

brilliant unreachable waves.

Far away I run, oh,

I run away.

 

  1. INTO THE MIST

Here, smiling at me,

I see your heart reaching for mine.

Now, in morning dew billows of clouds gently roll by.

Remember our days moments of dew Refreshing our lives.

Today, thinking of me ,

I’ll sing your song to be by your side.

Let’s stay awake  until dawn,

and let the mist accompany your song.

You are not alone,

reach out to me, crossing the sun…

and see, caught in the mist,

there is a run ray dancing for you.

Now, lie down once more, beneath the sky,

here in the morning dew.

Lie down here with me,

beneath the clouds Here in the dawn.

Here clothed with the dew,

cool wisps’ of spring gently roll by.

Remember our night

moments of mist whisper a wish.

Tonight, remember me, reach for the clouds,

since I’ll be gone.

Stay awake until dawn,

and let the mist cool your song.

When you feel alone,

reach for our touch, behind the moon.

And now, caught in the mist,

there is a rainbow singing your song.

There, lie down once more, beneath the clouds,

there in the dawn mist.

Lie down here with me,

beneath the clouds Here in the dawn.

Here clothed with the dew,

cool wisps’ of spring gently roll by.

Remember our night

moments of mist whisper a wish.

Tonight, remember me,

reach for the clouds, since I’ll be gone.

Stay awake until dawn,

and let the mist cool your song.

When you feel alone,

reach for our touch, behind the moon.

And now, caught in the mist,

there is a rainbow singing your song.

There, lie down once more,

beneath the clouds,

there in the dawn mist.

 

  1. LOST

Lost in a towering world of pines.

Beneath the vastness of heaven.

I reached to feel the warmth of our earth

… and hear the wind and the rain.

I leaned forward toward the rays of the sun,

yet, hear the wind and the rain.

Oh, the scent of lavender in the air …

oh, the goodness of the earth,

and I hear the wind and the rain.

 

Mesmerized by the wildness of the forest.

Beneath by the grand expanse of emerald green

… I reached to find my way back home,

and hear the wind and the rain.

I leaned toward the warmth of my memories,

yet, hear the wind and the rain.

Oh, the scent of lavender in the air

… oh, the goodness of the earth,

and I hear the wind and the rain.

On now I know this is my home.

 

  1. BLUE MIST

Blue mist whispers faded memories.

Once treasured melodies.

My heart’s restful place of hope to be,

in long forgotten harmonies.

Be still sweet moments of happiness.

Cradle my dreams in misty blue.

Blue water, heal my misty despair.

Refresh my weary heart.

Renew my lost illusions.

Make darkness disappear.

Be still sweet moments of happiness.

Cradle my dreams in misty blue.

 

  1. THUNDER AND FIRE

(This is a song about the fire that burns within us when we are closely connected with someone we love)

Thunder and fire, thunder and fire.

Strikes the earth with its silvery glow.

The clouds shiver, the clouds shiver.

Casts its fire to crimson burning.

Thunder and fire, thunder and fire.

From this wound rises

… a miracle begins.

  1. WILDFLOWERS IN THE WIND             (Instrumental)
  2. A MOTHER’S WISH

Son, may your passage be a happy journey.

May your memory of me guide you through,

the dark and cloudy life…that shadows us all.

Please don’t lose your way.

When you stop to listen,

hear the land speaking to you…to you.

Son, when you walk in the shadows,

look, my shadow’s there too.

Keep your memory of me bright and clear.

No dark and cloudy skies will hurt you at all.

You won’t lose your way.

When you stop to listen,

hear the ice singing to you…to you.

Son, I know that your journey with me will end one day.

Walk along and please remember

…my wish for you is happiness

where ever you may go.

I’m proud that you are strong.

When you stop to listen,

hear my voice whisper,

I’ll miss you…I’ll miss you…

I’ll try not to worry.

 

  1. SNOWFALL   MIRAGE

This song is written in English and sung in Severn Ojibwa, The translation was done by Tom Beardy at Lakehead University.
The song is about a man finding lost in a snowstorm, As he walks amid the blinding white, hope and memories of his family help him find his way.

Snow fall on the Birch trees.

The wind blowing through the

forest.

Ice waves upon the lake.

Icicles!

Frozen images in the snow guide my

steps through the hidden trails along the river bank.

I see in the blinding snowstorm the mirage where I have been before.

It is my memory.

 

  1. FIRE DANCES

(This song is about renewal of love. Leaving behind hurt we feel and moving into the future with a heart open to love again)

Burning embers, dancing above me,

carry away sadness of yesterday…

carry it into the wind.

The fire dances…

wield your cleansing flame.

Disturb the darkness.

 

Trembling breezes, mirky

waters wash  away

memories we try to recapture.

 

Fire dances…disturb the dark.

Wield fire… cleanse your heart

of bitterness.

Carry it into the wind.

The fire dances… wield your cleansing flame.

 

  1. INTO THE AIR

Into the hidden place.

Where the sound of the wind,

replays the sounds of life.

Where the heart stands still,

and the breath holds its air.

Within the calm of the moon,

the clear song flows.

My thoughts are painted

with a moment of truth.

Within the calm of the moon,

the clear song flows.

And there lives peace,

only for a moment in time.

I meet myself

At the edge of a thought.

 

  1. WHERE ROSES BLOOM

I met you in sunlight

and in the moonlight we walk along.

There the shadows will not frighten us,

since your palm within mine holds.

Do you remember our walk in sunlight

where roses bloomed just as we past.

Though roses fade in cool moonlight,

our hopes would bloom as time sails past.

Take my hand,

keep me safe with you,

until the earth takes me away.

I’ll take your hand,

hold you close to me,

until sea tides lift hearts away.

Do you remember

our walk in sunlight

where roses bloomed just as we past.

Though roses fade in cool moonlight,

our hopes would bloom as time sails past.

Our dreams would blossom

…as times sails past.

 

  1. BLUE MIST DREAM

Blue mist dream, my dream.

Weeping morning whispers sorrow.

Weeping morning whispers sorrow

Heralds slumber’s restless dream.

Restless dream

Hope…hope…shines through the dawn,

shines through the dawn, dawns…

her ageless  dream.

 

  1. THE HIDDEN CHILD

The hidden child,

whose voice is shouting,

whose song is sung in silence at dawn.

(chorus)

A whispered melody of a heart that is beating,

to a drumming song and a band on fire!

Those spoken words…

I tried to listen,

yet go unheard

since my ears were closed.

(chorus)

Now listen! Hush! A child is calling.

A story told in exaltation.

(chorus)

A spoken melody

of a heart that is unafraid,

 sings a  drumming song;

plays band on fire!

Now listen! Hush! A child is calling.

A hidden voice

that we need to hear.
