  • 2. Change of Heart | Lyrics

    My heart, it was broken. Now it’s broken open.
    These words I had longed to hear, until my heart had spoken.

    I’ve had a change, a change of heart, I’ve had a change, a change of heart
    A change of heart, it came over me.

    The touch of an unseen hand, gave me the strength I needed.
    In the quiet of night, to my heart, my will conceded.

    I’ve had a change, a change of heart
    I’ve had a change, a change of heart
    A change of heart, it came over me, it came over me.

    A pieced together identity, unraveled in a moment of truth.
    It was the love that you showed me that would see me through.

    I’ve had a change, a change of heart, I’ve had a change, a change of heart

    A change of heart, it came over me, it came over me, it came over me.

  • 4. New You | Lyrics

    Om Ram Agniyai Swaha

    There’s a new you, the one you’ve always known yourself to be
    The true you, not the one that you believed we all wanted to see
    Not the person you believed we wanted you to be

    At times Gods walk upon the earth, for those with eyes to see
    I believed in you, you believed in me

    Om Ram Agniyai Swaha

    Bonded in eternity, like beads of love upon a string
    Round and round, in all directions
    As the fog clears from our eyes
    Guided by what we can’t see
    Homeward bound, a true reflection…

    Om Ram Agniyai Swaha

    There’s a new you, the one you’ve always known yourself to be

  • 7. Summertime | Lyrics

    Summertime, gonna take some time for me
    Summertime, just to let my spirit be
    This is what I really need
    To let the sun shine down on me

    Summertime, no place I would rather be
    Summertime, my beloveds next to me
    This is what I really need
    To feel the peace wash over me

    Summertime, as the trees sway side to side
    Summertime, I’ll watch the world just pass me by
    This is where I need to be
    To let this beauty carry me

    Summertime in Gods sunshine
    Kindred Souls
    Just passing through
    Summertime under the starry sky
    To see your eyes, lit by the moon
    All our cares so far from view
    Could be forever, summertime with you…

    Summertime Summertime…
    This is how it’s supposed to be

    Summer in eternity

  • 9. Halo | Lyrics

    Never have I ever felt a love like this, it warmed me to the core of my belief
    Now yesterday’s a shadow, a dream that I once had and much to my surprise and my relief.

    I saw a halo, a halo, halo, halo
    A halo, above my angel watching me
    A halo, I circled round your love toward the light till I could finally see

    Endless was my reach, elusive by design
    And all the shining toys that caught my eye
    Much further from the bone, enraptured by the veil
    And every explanation I could find

    I saw a halo, a halo, halo, halo
    A halo, above my angel watching me
    A halo, I circled round your love toward the light till I could finally see

    We’re all God’s children the hands that turn the wheels of destiny.
    We’re all God’s children the threads you weave to serve humanity
    You draw the line, all hearts will follow in time

    Saw a halo, saw an angel watching over me, my angel, she was watching over me, halo…

    A halo, above my angel watching me
    A halo, I circled round your love toward the light till I could finally see

  • 10. Resting in Rasa | Lyrics

    Govinda Radhe Shyam Bolo Radhe Radhe Shyam Bolo Ram Bolo Ram Bolo Ram Bolo Ram Bolo Ram
