How many times we’re moved by something but lines drawn scare that feeling away How many dreams fall by the wayside Its not your turn, not your day If we try we can make it real Let it flow and really feel Beyond the barriers created We just might start to realise See the world with new eyes And know how we’re all related… So I tell myself to keep on dreaming There’s a story we all know by heart Somewhere deep beneath rhyme and reason with happy endings and a brand new start If we try we can make it real Let it flow and really feel Beyond the barriers created We just might start to realise See the world with new eyes And know how we’re all related… So hadn’t we better Love one another, love one another, love one another, yeah…

This wishful heart with so much unspoken Longs to be seen and heard as not broken And this wishful heart waits for the moment For judgment to fade so the doors can all open We conquer our fears rise to face each new day Make a language to say we’re still here and okay We smile through the tears with a hope everlasting Gather strength to accept what fate chose - without asking And this wishful heart keeps time to remind me I am doing my part bearing this wishful heart.

I’m hosting a big giveaway Come rain or sunshine, today is the day Everyone come out to find things you lost or left behind I’ve coveted, hoarded, thought it okay Please come to my big giveaway Some things they were gifts, others I stole Some looked abandoned, I’d hold and feel whole Until this chance to confess Let go of, re-name, re-address Come pick up what’s yours, please don’t delay Its time for this big giveaway I’m using up paper I’ve kept in a stack Writing my regrets and sending them back To every unanswered call Mixed message, blank stare, dropped ball I’m sorry if I kept you all at bay You too are part of my big giveaway

One day a lonely hunter leaves her home to find new prey A predator with cunning somehow she looses her way No landmarks look familiar wandering for days and nights The stars they too betray her so she looks inside for insight, saying: Why, tell me why, do I hunt high and low In pursuit of a path and a sign that will not show Oh why, tell me how, tell me who I’d really like to know… She’s just about to give up when she spots beneath a tree Another lonely hunter he has been waiting patiently So happy at last found until they both realise The only thing captured same lost look in the other’s eyes. Oh why, tell me why do we hunt high and low In pursuit of a path, hungry for what is not owned Oh why, tell me how, tell me who I would really like to know Why, tell me why do we hunt high and low In pursuit of a path, hungry for what is not known Oh why, tell me how, tell me who, tell me now, Tell me where, tell me when, tell me what I would really like to know… (overtop 3rd chorus) We are lost and found on this unknown ground Oh the irony, sweet serendipity We’re still lost and found, awareness so profound
