I’ll take you to my valley, I’ll show you my strong trees
Submerge you in these waters and set your fire free
Free...

Enter into this cavern, come to know my name
Take a breathe of the whisper who sings alive your name
Name...
Hiya!
Strong trees, cool water

In my room there are some pictures of the way life used to be
They are frayed around the edges will you take them down for me
Down for me, down for me, down for me

So the walls are white and waiting for your portrait to be seen
I will put my brush to canvass, will you sit and sing for me
For me
Hiya hiya hey

Will you come to bear this desert
Will you come to love this terrain
If you ride this changing river you will know
The greatest gain
The greatest gain
Hiya hiya hey

Track Name: Redman
I asked that big man with the red hair, it he’d ever seen you
He asked what you looked like, I said real fine, dark hair and eyes
He asked me where I was going, I said to your dream
But you never bothered to come
I’ve always needed to be asked along

I looked around and noticed that the big red man had your boots on
I asked him where he got them, he said in the doorway to your dream
Where is the doorway to your dream
Then the redman lead me to your door
He had your boots on and the same look in your eyes

A shade opened up and a woman tried to send me away
I shouted “don’t do this!” and then the redman lead me away
I asked him “where are we going” he said to my own dream
And I never care to see you again
No I never care to see you again

Track Name: Flight
She was sent on wings from the same place as me
She was sent on wings, from the same place as me
And she is a poet, and she is my poem
And she sings her songs, and she is my song
And she moves under the water
And she stirs inside of me
And we soar under the water, moving graceful, fast and free

Oh she has risen from my dream stage, ah, ah, ah
And I gave her, a woman angel
To be seen by her, spiritual eyes

And she soars
Watch her fly
See her lightening up my sky

And she soars
What her fly,
See her lightening up my sky

And she soars, watch my angel fly
See her burn, lightening up the sky
Lift me up, by your loving eyes
Take me home, hold me through the night

And she soars, watch my angel fly
See her burn, lightening up the sky
Lift me up, by your loving eyes
Take me home, hold me through the night

Whoa, flight….

Oh bring it on here, no fear

Anything can happen any time to anyone
