As I prepare For The Asking.
As I loose sight to be a seer.
As I lay down all words & weapons.
The voices of the winged ones ring clear.

Chorus:
Ooooooooo as I remember
Ooooooooo choose love not fear.
As I bring forth all the joy of a heartsong.
The Gods and the Goddesses appear.

As I kiss the earth and touch the sky.
As I let go to be here.
As I surrender as a beautiful vessel.
The voices of the winged ones ring clear.

Chorus

As I stand before you now.
As I stand before you now.
Your humble servant I bend and bow
As I stand before you now.


As I prepare For The Asking.
As I loose sight to be a seer.
As I law down my words and weapons.
The voices of the winged ones ring clear.
The Gods and the Goddesses are here.
Here. Here. Here. Here.

May all beings of the world
May all beings of the world have fresh clean water to drink.
May all beings of the world
May all beings of the world have food & a home.
May all beings of the world have someone to share love with.
May all beings of the world know their true purpose.
May all beings of the world
May all beings of the world be well & happy right now.
May all beings of the world
May all beings of the world be free from suffering.

And today I shall do all that I can do to make it so.
To make it so.
To make it so.
To make it so.

Down by the water stillness is the dancer
The question is the answer
And there are many trees.

Down by the water
The blind one is the seer
The wounded is the healer
And there are many trees.

Chorus:
Oh the trees watch over me.
Oh the trees in all their beauty.
If I only take the time to be
If I only take the time to be
If I only take the time to be
With the trees.

Down by the water.
The voice within the deep earth
Beckons me to rebirth
And there are many trees.

Down by the water the truth is in the knowing
The ebbing and the flowing
And there are many trees.

Chorus

As above me so below roots gently grow.
As before me so behind
Peace of mind.
As around me so within
Spirit on the wind
Guides me home.
If I only take the time to be
If I only take the time to be
If I only take the time to be
With the trees.

If I only take the time to be
If I only take the time to be
If I only take the time to be
With the trees.

Sometimes I wish
Sometimes I wish
That we could all become Amish and slow it down some.
And Slow It Down some
And Slow It Down.

Sometimes I pray
Sometimes I pray
That all the worries melt away
To Slow It Down Some.
To Slow It Down.

Where are you hurrying off to?
Where is the fire? Where’s the race?
Would be it be such a tragedy
To drop anchor for the state of grace?

Last night I dreamed
Last night I dreamed
I threw a wrench in the machine
To Slow It Down Some.
To Slow It Down.


Ahhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhh

Sometimes I wish
Sometimes I wish
That we could all become Amish to slow it down some.
To slow it down.

I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

The rollercoaster you’ve been on with me.

And for the times I’m not easy.

I am sorry.

There’s a blessing in heartache.

There is love beyond pain.

I take nothing for granted.

And I’ll never be the same.

Thank You.

Chorus:

For Caring for me.

You are my family.

It’s not easy feeling broken.

But I want the word to see.

How you have cared for me.


I wish you could see what I see

As you prepare for the worst.

Wish you could know that I know

How you silently hurt.

There’s a gift in the healing.

Though it doesn’t seem fair.

But now I can face anything.

Just knowing you are there.

Thank You.

Chorus:

For Caring for me.

For when despair becomes belief.

For all the promises you keep.

For all the words that I can’t speak.

Thank you for caring for me.

For me.

Bridge:

And Oh, you’re my anchor.

And Oh, you’re my solid ground.

And Oh, you’re my angel.

My heart is full beyond profound.

Ooooooooooh

Thank You. Thank You.

Chorus:

For Carrying me.

For when your hope becomes your grief.

I get all the sympathy.

But I need this world to see.

To see you. And how you have cared

For me.

This body is healing.
This mind is believing.
I’ve made friends with grieving.
And I’m Connected to it all.

This body is breathing.
This heart is receiving.
I’ve made friends with leaving.
And I’m Connected to it all.

And now I become
One with the one.

Say goodbye to the hiding.
Peace & Love are colliding.
I’ve made friends with flying.
And I’m Connected to it all.

But when the feathers start fraying.
There is comfort in praying.
I’ve made friends with staying.
And I’m Connected to it all.

And now I become
One with the one.
And now I become.
One with the all.

There is Peace within this here and now.
4 X’s

This body is healing.
Time is revealing.
I’ve made friends with feeling.
And I’m Connected to it all.
I’m Connected to it all.
I’m Connected to it all. Etc.
Track Name: Kings of Themselves
“Kings of Themselves”
By Celia

www.celiaonline.com

You spin your stories
You tell your little lies
And still your only alibi is that
It’s between you and your God

This thing that you call love
Looks a lot like power
And you claim you’re innocent
But all your actions say your not.

You will never get back into his heart.
You will never tear his world apart again.
You had him blind but now he sees.
He is strong now.
Carry on now.
He’s the King of himself now that he’s free.

You say one thing and you do another
And wildly scream you’re a good mother
Well, Who are you trying to convince?
I wasn’t there but as far as I can tell
Real love is unconditional
And the truth is in the children.

And they will never let you into their hearts.
They will never let you tear their world apart.
You had them blind but now they see.
They are strong now.
They carry on now.
They’re the Kings of Themselves & They are Free

They see the lies in your eyes.
And it’s gone on for so long no one’s surprised.
And they know even before you know.
And good boys will forgive but all you’ll have to show.

Is you can never get back into their hearts.
You can never tear their world apart again
Now they’re men & they see
What is wrong now
They sing new songs now.
They’re the Kings of Themselves & They are Free

And your dark desperate attempts only push them
To Dignity.

Ground. Center. Shield. Ground.
Ground, Center, & Shield.
Oh Ground. Center. Shield Ground.
Ground, Center, & Shield.

And only love gets in.
And only love is invited.
And only love gets in.
And only love gets in.
And only love gets in.

You are safe. You are protected.
You are earth and sky connected.
You are free from lower energies.
You are free. You are free.
You are free. You are free.
Track Name: Go Ahead
“Go Ahead”
By Celia

www.celiaonline.com

Go Ahead & break my heart.
Go Ahead & break my heart.
Crack me wide open. Break my heart.

Go Ahead & tear me down.
Get my stars to kiss the ground.
Go Ahead & Break my heart.
Break my heart.

If my heart can be broken
It wasn’t open
Tear me down
Tear me down
To the size of love
If my heart is ripped and ragged
There’s more for me to see.
Tear me down.
Tear me down.
Test my integrity.

Go Ahead & break my heart.
Go Ahead & break my heart.
Tear me apart.
Break my heart.

Go Ahead & feed my fears
Try to fix and force down my tears
Go Ahead and break my heart.
Break my heart.

If my heart can be broken
It wasn’t open
Tear me down
Tear me down
To the size of love
If my heart can deny you
There’s more for me to learn.
Tear me down Tear me down
Till my illusions burn.
Break my heart. Crack me open.
Turn your back. And walk away.
Take those arms that might have held me.
I’ll be a glorious mess
To rise again.


Go Ahead & Break my Heart.
Go Ahead and try my trust.
Stay if you will. Go if you must……
Break my heart.

I say you don’t laugh anymore.
You say I’m no fun.
I say it’s because you withdraw.
You say it’s my guns.

So tell me.
Who am I without you?
And who am I on my own?
And who am I with my guitar?
And who am I alone?

You’re telling me that it’s over.
I say we’ve just begun.
You let me cry on your shoulder
While you’re claiming that I was the one.

Well Darling, you’re right, I’ve been petty.
When I’m scared I start keeping score.
My ego dies yet another death
And I pray it dies a few more.

To ask me
Who am I without you?
And who am I on my own?
And who am I with my guitar?
And who am I alone?


I am Free.
I am Free.
I am Free just to live.
I’m Free just to breathe.
I am Free.
I am Free.
I am free just to fly.
I’m Free just to leave.
And now I see.

That I am free without you.
And I am free on my own.
And I am free just sitting in this chair.
Facing the night alone.
What a glorious night to be alone.

Everything is different.
Everything has changed.
Love came in on a lightning bolt train into my soul.
Yeah...into my soul.

Oh it is so beautiful.
Love the way it feels.
I've been struck before, tell me is it real? How do I know.
Yeah....how do I know?

So, I ask the wings of my broken birds.
They know how deeply I have been hurt.
I ask the bottle I once drained dry.
Every moment brings this reply.

Chorus:
Let him love you. Let him love you like you've never been loved before.
Let him hold you. Let him hold you in the night. Wrap your arms around him tight and don't let go.
And if you ask your heart you will know.
You will Know. That you Know.

I have walked a tattered road learning how to live.
Oh Great Spirit teach me how to forgive and help me see....what stands before me.

So, I ask the blades and I ask the scars.
They say, "Do you realize how lucky you are?"
I ask the roots that have yearned for rain.
Every moment brings this refrain...

Chorus:
Let him love you. Let him love you like you've never been loved before. Let him hold you let him hold you in the night, wrap your arms around him tight and don't let go.
And if you ask your heart you will know...
That you finally found...

Home. Yes. You finally found home.
You found Home. Yes. You will never walk alone.

So, gather up your courage and stay.
And let the Great Spirit Have her way.

Chorus:
And Love him. Love him like he's never been loved before.
And hold him. Whisper in the night, "Babe we finally got it right. Let's let it grow."
And given half the chance we will know.
That we finally found....

Home. Yes. We finally found home.
We found Home. Yes.
The King and Queen on humbled thrones.

Now we know that we know that we know.
Two hearts that will never walk alone.
Now we know that we know that we know.

Welcome Home.
