Can I tell You how I love you ? More than words can ever tell Even now the blissful vision's passing, leaving me forever caught within Your spell The magic of Your light surrounds me, even when i cannot see The clarion call of Your trumpets blowing, has finally come to me Like a Fire Dragon in the darkness, Your sweet light is cast all about May I worship You my Fire Dragon? May I fall upon my face before You God? May I serve and play some small part in Your game? May I strike a blow for Truth/ May I be Your tool and bring to all Your light? May I sit in Your sweet lap forevermore? None of these things do I really want my Lord, it just sounds so nice to say Just to please You Lord that's all I want today, just to love You more, that much I will ask, I know I may. Can I tell You how I love you? More than words can ever tell Even now the blissful vision's passing, leaving me forever caught within Your spell.

I know where I have seen that sweet face once before I remember long ago I saw You smiling from a star Sweetest Baba how I Iong to see Your face Sweetest Baba, how I love to feel Your Grace Sweetest Baba, how I long to give my all to You. I know where I have heard that sweet voice once before On a lonely moonlit night I heard You calling from afar. Sweetest Baba, how I love to call Your name , Sweetest Baba, how I love to play Your game Sweetest Baba, it's all an endless loving song to You I know where I have felt that sweet touch once before It woke a feeling in my heart that will remain forevermore Sweetest Baba, won't You take me in Your arms Like a child in Your endless loving calm Sweetest Baba, giving glimpses of Your mind Sweetest Baba, showing how I've been so blind Sweetest Baba, time and time again You come Sweetest Baba, You know You are my only one Sweetest Baba, how can I ever forget You now?

When the wolves of night are close upon my trail And I'm exhausted and I fear my strength might fail me And all the tricks I've tried have been to no avail Then I find You standing near. Here I am a single dewdrop in the dawn And as the rising suns' light catches me I am transformed Into a soul in flight, a spirit newly born I awake as You take form. But all that I can think is how I love You All I can do is surrender, at Your Lotus Feet at Your Lotus Feet A glimpse of You has left me yearning for the day When I may walk with You upon some cosmic way I know You yearn for me too, Lord what can I say Baba I am amazed. Your magic love surrounds us brighter than the sun, You are the one whose glory stretches on and on I see a million minds I see there's only one Watching over, loving all. And all that I can think is how I love You All that I can think is how I love You All I can do is surrender, at Your Lotus Feet at Your Lotus Feet Baba Nam Kevalam

Oh Unknown Traveller , You heard my cry, I don't know why I was so lonely You took my hand to guide me through the mists of ages I live again to see Your smile, such strange enchantment And everyone I pass reminds me of You And at every point I touch Your unseen realm. I often wonder if You have been that unseen friend I can depend on I love that feeling, to know You're near , a love so dear Why don't we just float away? They'll never know our destination They'll never know we're gone. Oh Unknown Traveller, You hide Your face, and in it's place there is a question I dare not ask the shining mask. "Do you trust Me , to lead you on beyond the darkness?" Then I throw myself in anguish at the wind But I close my eyes and catch You in my fear. Can't you see your destiny, shining like a path before you , Your heart forever free? Just touch my heart so I can love You, You open my eyes and let me see All of the years that I have sought You, all of the time You were with me And You're all that I ever want to be, You know everything I think, do and see And somehow I feel You inside of me, And I sense the magic of You very free.

Like a rain of crystal shadows in the night There's a cloud of shifting thought obscures my sight Hidden in a mist of mystery You stand If I reach for You all I get is empty hands If I offer my whole self right at Your feet That's the only way to persuade You to stay with me. Cloud of mystery gives birth to spark of light Floating to me and I catch it holding tight In my hands I hold in awe a holy word Baba Nam Kevalam Baba Nam Kevalam Again and again I perceive that it is all the same Over and over now I cry that I want only You Yet Your mystery evades me still. Take my hands and lead me onward through the night Take me in Your loving arms and hold me tight Take my pain to sow as stars across the sky Take my eyes that are so dazzled by Your light Take my heart entrusted to Your loving care Take my thoughts that I may see the truth laid bare Take my oath now that I offer all to thee Take my life, it's not my own.

You are the only one , beyond time, beyond rhyme or reason You are the greatest one , beyond space, beyond all lands and seasons How can I sing to You my Lord when You are sound itself? For how in song are You described without a sound? How can I love You Lord, when You are love itself? How can I worship You my master. You are the only One, beyond time, beyond rhyme or reason You are the Perfect One beyond mind, beyond all manifestation What can I do for You My Lord, to express my love for You For how in song are You described without a sound? I know just what I 'll do now that I feel Your love abound I'll give my life into Your service. I'll uproot mountains that have dared to disobey Your will I'll bring them bound before You just to show You love them still I'll change the world the way You want, I'll take Your message far and wide And when I'm done if You so wish I will return to Your side. For You're the only one I love, and I won"t part from You Not if a sea of evil standeth in my way. For You're the only one I know, I see Your face in all faces, And all the places that I go I see that You've been there before You are my only love my Lord, and if I'm crying in my sleep You say," My child, do not weep, for I am Yours' forevermore."

Starlight 03:17
Like starlight shining onwards all around me Remember that dark dark night when all alone A clear stream of conscious footprints led me from my home A clear call, my restless spirit brought me to Your feet

Winter's End 06:24
On a cold winter's morning a dewdrop formed in the icy dawn But the coldness of the snow around reflected in it turning it to stone. A tinkling stream is playing on the icicles a sad refrain, In the snow of a nearby village children's tricycles are lonely and forgotten. My mind clutches at these wondrous icicles that are hanging here, In the stillness of this eerie night, alone beneath the trees in the forest. Beautiful it may seem, but the ice edge is sharp Cutting my clutching hand, crimson tears stain the snow Pain all around me now , God how it hurts to know. Floating in Gods heaven all alone, Winters small creatures lie, dying amidst the snow They are too small to flee, they are too cold to cry. Winters chill, spell of night, dark magic binds the world Frozen are human hearts, we crowd close worlds apart Lonely cries paid no heed, Love is all, that we need. The dewdrop awakes now in the morning sun of the godly one Who has come at last and brings the spring, who's calling us to fight for our freedom. Fire of love burns now in hearts of heroes, Wielding our swords of light, warriors gather now, Now is time to unite, humanity awake. Here is our leader now, see the master Himself Glorious golden one, shining like dragon fire Darkness retreats before, Dharma is our desire. In the chill spring of morning a dewdrop formed and the rising sun, Caught the curve of liquid, tensions vessel, shining for a moment like the dawn. Heralding Winters End, harbinger springs return, Golden wings open wide, bliss dawning in my mind Breaking the chains at last, Baba, the Lord is here. And the dewdrop , awake now in a springtime land where the air is clear but warm the sunlight touches all our hearts, so many dewdrops in the dawn.

Sadako Sasaki, your name rings on down through the years, though you were just a child when you died. Sadako Sasaki, will you make a thousand cranes for me, let magic bring good fortune once again. That all the children we have bourne don’t die in vain Lest all the wonders of this world perish in flame That all the children we have bourne don’t die in vain Lest all the wonders of this world perish in flame We will make a thousand cranes to make you well As you live on in our minds in your star island And we will sing a thousand songs to make them hear us Why should it take a thousand suns to bring us peace? Tears can never bring the dead to life again We will never let them end our world Tears can never bring the dead to life again We will never let them end our world Tears can never bring the dead to life again We will never let them end our world Sadako Sasaki, your name rings on down through the years, though you were just a child when you died.

Can you feel the wind, it stirs my soul and lifts it high to catch a glimpse of heavens distant sky, lead me on towards my home. Await the One, with loves' sweet pain burning patterns in my heart to weave a space between the stars, there You are. Can You feel the stillness, of the cold before the cawn, the calm before the storm about to break and bear us on towards Your light. Chorus: Can you feel the wind awakening your hearts , it may be gentle but it's true Can you see the new dawn breaking through the darkness, isit happening to you? I love Your smile, it takes my heart in a tender loving hold that tells me never to let go, not fade away from loves true flame I see Your tears like diamonds falling catch my heart to cast down my despair, I need not fear the darkest night. A thousand winds have bourne us high then died their fury gone to set us down just one stage further on towards our home A thousand suns have shone their light on our long struggle, fed the flame of hope that never dies, that leads us on... A thousand times, the leaves have turned burnt orange, fallen spinning, still our journey seems to have no end, in the wind I hear You call. Chorus Will You be my love, I'll wait for You though the world may pass away and only You and I remain, I'll feel the same.

Vigilance they say is the price of freedom A small price, surely, for eternal glory Listen carefully can you hear the anguish Of a lonely people, crying for salvation Written with cruel strokes on people's faces? Awake now, there is a road to freedom You who have the courage now must take it Awake humankind in your darkest hour For the Age of Anandam is at hand See here how the blessed wind of fortune Has blown to you a chance of many lifetimes Humanity is waiting for your greatness To shine through you and break their chains of darkness Awake now there is a road to freedom You who have the courage now must take it Rise up and sing in joy this song for freedom For the Age of Anandam is at hand For the Age of Anandam is at hand
