Time on Fire

TIME IS ON FIRE

 

I’m off my square

I don’t recognize this place

Where is that edge

I was standing on, balancing on

 

I’m off my square

I can’t remember falling

Seems like I woke up here

Like out of some dream

 

I CAN’T REMEMBER AGING

CAN’T REMEMBER CHANGING

SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY I HAD A WHILE

TO LEARN HOW TO DO THIS, TO GET THROUGH THIS

AND IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY I WAS A CHILD

 

I remember the days

Couldn’t even conceive of

Something like old age

But the sand goes down

 

So many expectations

Never knew what would happen

I can’t remember what I thought

But it wasn’t this

 

Someone tell me where I’m goin’, someone tell where I’ve been

Tell me how I got down to the wire, down to the fire

Time is on fire

and I’m watchin’ it burn, watchin’ it burn, time is on fire

(I can’t remember aging, can’t remember changing

Time is on fire) repeat

And I’m watchin’it burn, watchin’ it burn, time is on fire

And it seems like yesterday I was child

 

 

OUR POTENTIAL

 

when I hung out in the wings

I hung out in the distance to

to those, those who would know me

safer, safer than showing

 

who we are, who we really are

underneath what we use to guard

guard us from the rejection,

guard us from our reflection

 

WHAT IF, WHAT IF WE CHOSE TO

WHAT IF, WHAT IF WE ROSE TO

OUR POTENTIAL

 

now it’s time, time to be real

if there’s something, something you feel

way down, down deep inside you

voices, they’re meant to guide you

 

WHAT IF...

 

you can begin your rising, you begin your rising now

you can come out of hiding, you can come out of hiding now

 

ALL OF WHAT USED TO BE

THE REASONS I KEPT WAITING

SEEM SO SMALL COMPARED TO

THE GOOD THAT

WE’RE MEANT TO DO

WHATEVER YOU BELIEVED BEFORE

WHAT WOULD SEEM SO TRUE

WAS KEEPING US FROM DOING

THE GOOD THAT, WE'RE MEANT TO DO

WE'RE MEANT TO DO

 

 

BE BRAVE, HAVE HEART

 

Be Brave, Have Heart

 

Trust in our togetherness

Any storm we will weather this

To the surface we arise

Feel the truth within our eyes

Be Brave

 

Rock the boat, it won’t tip over

Steady through uncharted troubled water

There’s no map for where we’re going

Tapping into collective knowing

Be Brave

 

HAVE HEART AND BE HUMBLE,

HUMBLY CARRY THIS FLAG OF LOVE

HAVE HEART AND BE BOLDER,

BOLDLY WAVING THIS FLAG OF LOVE

 

Be Brave, Have Heart

 

There’s a calling out from the shore

We answer and welcome more

And the ripple effect is strong

Can you feel it and will you come along

 

Across the borders, across the lines

We want to meet you, this is the time

And we’ll be dancing, we’ll be changing

The consciousness and state of the planet

Be Brave

Have Heart

Be Brave, Have Heart

JUDAS DOES

 

I’m in the backseat, where are you going

It’s not familiar here look around

I’m in the backseat, look in the mirror

It’s your best friend, you’re bringing down

I’m in the backseat, where are you going

It’s not familiar here look around

I’m in the backseat, look in the mirror

It’s your best friend, you’re bringing down   

 

And I pray hard to the angel

On the dashboard leading us home

She doesn’t hear me, no she doesn’t hear me

We’re farther from heaven, And I’m feeling alone

And I pray hard to the angel

On the dashboard leading us home

She doesn’t hear me, no she doesn’t hear me

We’re farther from heaven, And I’m feeling alone   

 

AND JUDAS DOES, WHATEVER HE DOES

WHENEVER HE WANTS, DON’T EVEN TRY

LET HIM CUT YOUR HAND, SPARE YOUR HEART

IT’S A SACRIFICE, JUST A LITTLE PART OF YOU DIES

 

And I’m riding along, I let you take me down

Let you take me

I’ve been here before, I recognize this street

But this time, I’ll do it differently

And I’m riding along, I let you take me down

Let you take me

I’ve been here before, I recognize this street

But this time, I’ll do it differently

 

And the wind blows in the window

I can breathe now, I'm alive

Watch the road go by hold the door close

I’m gonna jump out, It’ll hurt, I’ll survive

 

And the wind blows in the window

I can breathe now, I'm alive

Watch the road go by hold the door close

I’m gonna jump out, It’ll hurt, I’ll survive 

 

AND JUDAS DOES...

 

 

GREAT TIME

 

This is a great time, to have faith
This is a great time, to have faith
a difficult time

 

When I am afraid I know I’m growing
When I make changes I tend to feel wrong

so wrong
I never could have planned this life

if I tried to any better, anyway
I just have to show up, be brave and step out

and have faith
You can have faith

 

I can’t figure out how it’s gonna happen,

how it’s gonna go down
In my humanness I try to use reason

to make some sense of this
More will be revealed as I go forward to declare my dreams
Just have to commit despite my fears

and develop wings
on the way down

 

IF I LOOK AT HISTORY I CAN SEE A REASON
A REASON FOR EVERYTHING
IT’S LIKE A PUZZLE THAT FITS TOGETHER,
TOGETHER PERFECTLY

 

This is a great time, no I wouldn’t trade it
Even if it’s scary, it’s good to be alive, good to jump in
I’ve been hiding and waiting

getting ready for the guarantees to come
I follow my heart and I won’t regret that I didn’t step out
and have faith

 

WHEN I LOOK AT HISTORY I CAN SEE A REASON
A REASON FOR EVERYTHING,

ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING
IT’S LIKE A PUZZLE THAT FITS TOGETHER,
TOGETHER PERFECTLY
THERE MUST BE REASON

 

You can have faith
this is a great time
to have faith

 

 


 

I SAY YES

 

Small…..Still….Voice

Small still voice inside...Speaking, speaking loud

And though I can hear it, don’t always listen

But I can trust, what it’s telling me

If I’m open and willing, and I stand in that space

Where it’s me and God, me and God

And I choose to follow, yes I choose to let go

Of the pain I held onto, that I thought you should know

I can let go

 

We came here for a purpose, we came here to do work

And the work we were meant to do, we already know

If I’m quiet and asking, the answers lie waiting

If I’m humble enough, and I can be bold

And say Yes to the calling, I say yes to this call

It’s me and God, me and God

And I stand here in courage; take a stand for this faith

And I’m moving forward

not even knowing where this is going

I can let go

 

I SAY YES AND IT’S AMAZING....I KNOW WHAT TO DO

WHAT TO DO NEXT, IF I ONLY....SAY YES, SAY YES

SAY YES, SAY YES, TO THE CALLING

 

It may start as a whisper

But no matter how faint it is there’s no denying

It gets louder and clearer with every step we take

Every little step we take

I know that you hear it too

I know the voice is within you

I know that you feel it too

The calling

 

I SAY YES AND IT’S AMAZING....I KNOW WHAT TO DO

WHAT TO DO NEXT, IF I ONLY....SAY YES, SAY YES

SAY YES, SAY YES
