Saffron Road

I'm on the Saffron Road

And I don't know where it goes

I'm making ground without a sound

I am walking the Saffron Road

When I'm on the Saffron Road

I will bear your load.

And that's alright for mine is light

When I'm walking the Saffron Road

Everybody needs to know the right way to go

Go with the flow

Follow the glow

And you won't go wrong

If you belong on the Saffron Road

On the Saffron Road

I'm on the Saffron Road

And there's so much more to know

Like who am I?

And when I die, will I stay on the Saffron Road?

And where does this river flow?

Where will my spirit go?

Will I survive beyond this life if I stay

on the Saffron Road?

Kiss The Joys

Kiss the joys as they float by
Paint the meadow and the sky
Catch the glory in her smile
Read the story in his eyes
And kiss the joys as they float by


Kiss the faces as they float by
Each encounter is divine
Break the bread and pour the wine
Share with those who share your time
Kiss the faces as they float by


Kiss the pain as it floats by
In the darkness, be the light
See the need that's there before you
Hear those voices when they call you
Kiss the pain as it floats by


Kiss the death as it floats by
You've seen it coming for quite a while
If you've loved the ones they gave you
That same love will surely save you
Kiss the death as it floats by

Martha and I

Martha and I went down to the river

Martha and I went down to the river

Tossed a stone into the deep unknown

And said a prayer

Hoped my words would not be left unheard

Just drowning there

Martha and I went down to the river

Martha and I went down to the river

She looked at me and said, "Why can't you see what's going on?

These ripples tell the story of how your glory carries on."

Saw her eyes and then I realised what she meant

I'd been her brother, and now we'd found each other once again.

Martha and I went down to the river

Martha and I went down to the river

It is

It is in the silence that I notice there is sound

It is in the darkness when a beam of light

is found

It is in the hatred when an act of love is shown

It is in the sadness when the depths of joy are known

It is

It is in the famine when a hungry mouth is fed

It is in the lying when we search for truth instead

It is in the war-zone when a person prays for peace

It is in the prison when the captives are released

It is

It is in the earthquake when cities are rebuilt

It is in the murder when forgiveness strangles guilt

It is in the pressure when meditation starts

It is in the stillness when we hear our beating hearts

Slow it Down

I slow it down a little just to get to the finer detail

Expressions and scars and all the more unusual features

Like pressing the pause button and moving in a little closer

It's a valuable skill for all of us to master

So I slow it down

I slow it down a little and read your silent story

The missing pages leave me wanting and confused

I'd like to step inside you

Know your joy and feel your fury

I want to know the thoughts I'd think if I were you

So I slow it down

I slow it down a little just to catch the hidden meaning

And read the entries that you made there in your book

I saw the way you flew around when you were dreaming

And all those monsters that you killed with just a look!

So I slow it down

Bring it Home

Take the time to wander

Take the time to dream

Keep them in your memory

All the places you have seen

All the faces in your story

All the eyes that held your gaze

All the voices singing words of love and praise

Let your breath fill the space where your worries used to roam

Find the meaning in your life and bring it home

Walk through ancient woodland

Feel the power of prayer

Look beyond the canopy

The sky is always there

The sun may hide behind the clouds

And play a waiting game

A breath of wind will bring its warmth again

Let your breath fill the space where your worries used to roam

Find the meaning in your life and bring it home

Home is where you started

Where the strangers that you met became your friends

Home is where the heart is

And your heart is the beginning and the end

Let your breath fill the space where your worries used to roam

Find the meaning in your life and bring it home

So by taking chances, you learn how to be brave

By going under water you  learn to ride the wave

If you turn just one more corner in an unfamiliar land

By reaching out, you touch a stranger's hand

Let your breath fill the space where your worries used to roam

Find the meaning in your life and bring it home

And bring it home...

Love (Find Your Way)

Who can we trust?
Who can we trust these days?
So many out for themselves
But we've found love
And we know all its ways
It's the only true thing in this world


So don't settle for anything else
Nothing we know can come close to it
Don't dream of material wealth
Nothing we own could purchase it


Love will never ever fade away
Love will always be here come what may
Love will guide us through each day
Love will always help you find your way


Be who you are
Always be true inside
To be someone else isn't right
Secrets don't last
No one can truly hide
And one day we'll all catch the light


So don't settle for anything else
Nothing we know can come close to it
Don't dream of material wealth
Nothing we own could purchase it


Love will never ever fade away
Love will always be here come what may
Love will guide us through each day
Love will always help you find your way


I’ve seen who you are
Selfless in every way
Christ in your hands and your feet
I have been blessed
To know that love everyday
You show it to all those you meet


Don't settle for anything else
Nothing we know can come close to it
Don't dream of material wealth
Nothing we own could purchase it


Love will never ever fade away
Love will always be here come what
may
Love will guide us through each day
Love will always help you find your way

Song of the Birds

I cannot compete with the song of the birds

But I try every time when I think of you

From a notebook of praise

Comes an angelic phrase

I'm suspended in time by those God-given tunes

And then I think of you...

And then I think of writing a song for...

You are a glorious songbird

A wonderful singer and healer of pain

You are a symphonic cloudburst

Refreshing the Jailbird with harmonic rain

Again and again.

I cannot compete with the song of the birds

But I try every time when I think of you

Steal a tune from my heart

That's where they all start

Before finding their way in a home that is new.

I pray that home is you

And may this song bring freedom and light to...

Fake News

Too much news​

I am confused

Often question if it's true

Fairy tales

To boost their sales

Or scary tales to worry you

As long as we're afraid

We believe in their charade

Fake news

We believe the lies we're told

They keep full control

Fake news

Too much news

Is getting through

Enough to keep us on our toes

Bush and Blair

So debonair

Dressed in the Emperor's new clothes

As long as we're afraid

We believe in their charade

Fake news

We believe the lies we're told

They keep full control

Fake news

Too much news

It lights the fuse

So we all join them in their wars

Trump's regime

Ain't too extreme

He saves us from "The Hooded Claw"

As long as we're afraid

We believe in their charade

Fake news

We believe the lies we're told

They keep full control

Fake news

Connected


Hey little bird, do not be afraid
We're both connected in so many ways
Through the air that we breathe
And food that we need
In the songs that we sing everyday

Sing to a world that has no time to hear
Weep for a world that has run out of tears
Sing for the silenced who are hiding in fear

 

We're both connected

Because we are here


Hey giant tree, do not be dismayed
We're both connected in so many ways
Through the water we need
That nourished the seed
Connected through sun and through rain
Shelter a world that has no sense of home
Offer a branch when forgiveness has gone
Show us your strength when we can't carry on

 

We're all connected,

Together as one


Hey little child, with a smile on your face
We're both connected in so many ways
Through screams of delight
And fear of the night
That angels soon carry away
Dance in a world that has bound up its feet
Learn in a world that has lost how to teach
Play in a world that may hide but won't seek


We're all connected

Whoever we meet


Hey there musician, with a violin to play
We're both connected in so many ways
Through the song in our hearts
And the notes we impart
That speak more than words could convey
Busk in a world that just keeps walking by
Play out your soul and then see how I cry
I cry for a world that believes in a lie


"We're not connected. It's Me,Mine and I"
