All My Weight

They’re strong, decorated in mystery

Can they lift me up? 

Take me to the clouds that are sleeping

Right now

That are sleeping right now

Can I hold them? Can they hold me?

 

I want to fall down with all my weight

I want to love you in this current state

I want to connect to what you say

I want to love you with all my weight

 

I will trace the lines on your hands

Take us on a journey through untouched lands

And nights that cover our skin

Nights that cover our skin

Can I hold them? Can they hold me? 

 

I want to fall down with all my weight

I want to love you in this current state

I want to connect to what you say

I want to love you with all my weight

 

I want to love you

I want to love you

I want to love you

I want to

Golden Sky

Touching this golden sky, fingertips reaching high

Could you rest the moon down on the shore? 

Soft sand giving in and waves that roar

Roar, roar, roar

 

The birds are weaving through the atmosphere

They don’t know the sadness we felt here

And the circles circle

And the faces never fade

And I’m shacked up in this lonely place

 

Nothing left behind, flecks of time, scattered mind

But golden is this sky, tree branches reaching high

Holding everything that came before

Fore, fore, fore

 

The birds are weaving through the atmosphere

They don’t know the sadness we felt here

And the circles circle

And the faces never fade

And I’m shacked up in this lonely place

The Garden

I am growing into these leaves

The edges of my form

My soul is dissipating 

 

Thorns to pull from my feet

Arches in full bloom

Heady and awake

 

Oh desire, oh desire

 

Scared to admit to you

I will never submit to you

Scared to admit to you

I will never submit to you

 

Blackbird curious and brave

Watching you remember a lesson that your Mother gave

 

Oh desire, oh desire

 

Scared to admit to you

I will never submit to you

Scared to admit to you

I will never submit to you

The River

Could I live my life sheltered by this heathered hill?

This soil is where my feet are sure

This land holds my heart still

 

Down by Millrace Cottages

This was my sanctuary

A girl who carried nothing but a will to be free

 

All things flow

And we love alone

All things flow

And we love alone

 

Oh the river’s wisdom

She taught me all there is to know

My body it remembers her and she will always be home

 

All things flow

And we love alone

All things flow

And we love alone

 

All things flow

And we love alone

All things flow

And we love alone

 

This is home

All things flow

And we love alone

This is home, this is home, this is home

Eruption 

Eruption of feeling

We landed

 

Looking across

A lake of liquid stone

 

Torn apart by huge vibrations

Shaken into new formations

Bodies split open

Our bond is broken

 

Core emotion has awoken

 

The force of this choice

 

Fragments of history

Linger under skin

 

Courage 

My weakness

 

Torn apart by huge vibrations

Shaken into new formations

Bodies split open

Our bond is broken

 

Core emotion has awoken

 

The force of this choice

Getting High

I love to get high in bedroom

I love the way it makes me feel

When I’m writing songs, playing my violin

It helps me process grief

 

We used to get high in our bedroom

Hiding from a pain that overgrew

Living with the hurt, did I make it worse?

Holding on to you?

 

Now when I go back to these memories

I’m less fearful, less separate

Stretching out each moment that we shared

It all felt so unfair

Wherever you’ve gone, know that your love carries on

(I feel like a bird)

I feel like a bird

I feel like a bird

Flying above the beauty

Not with the beauty

 

Duality, urgency

Laughing at me

All is being, all is being, all is being

boci - vocals, acoustic guitar

 

Now is the Time

I went out today and saw an opening

Everything was quiet and it felt like something

 

You were gone one day like a flower dies

I held onto your voice and looked into the sky to see your eyes

 

Your eyes

 

Locks on all the doors, no one is coming out

And I can hear your voice, I think I know now

 

The whole world stops here, Mother you’ve cried too long

Will the seasons change or will this be our last song? 

 

Our last song

 

Now is the time

Now we have the time

Time Weaver

We all know how to make up stories

Something planted, seeded in our stomach

 

Pieces of energy making images you feel

Make yourself a bird and you will understand

 

There is a tapestry that is woven in each moment

And everything exists here everything exists

 

A great force of love, is it dancing? 

Is it circling? 

Will you honour the process of creation? 

 

There is a tapestry that is woven in each moment

And everything exists here everything exists

 

So tell them of the love

Out Beyond

I’ve always got secrets, of that I am ashamed

Something pulling me back in

And on this shore I’ll stay

 

Tell me I’m braver now

Teach me to be loud

Something has got me down

So wait for me whilst I find my way out

 

We are each other

Don’t believe the illusion 

Trust in the melody that flows through you

 

Know that there is a place

Beyond all ideas

Beyond fear

 

I will meet you there
