Track Name: Legacy
Legacy - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

Open the morning
The sun is arising
Orange and yellow in the sky
As the moon goes fading into white

Knowing it’s all a letting go
Only my soul I will keep
But the morning is a glow
With the legacy
The lasting legacy

Old woman turns to me
She says this is time
I’ve tried holding my memories
But like a little bird they fly
It’s all coming full circle now i see
That love will be the only lasting legacy
The legacy
The lasting legacy

Not this body
Not this mind
Not this voice
Not this heartbeat
Not this skin
Not this sight
Not this blood running through the veins

I’m thinking about the snow
As I sit by the sea
Could it be an entire universe
Lives inside of you and me

But will you take me as I am
Full of stories of things unplanned
It’s all coming full circle now I see
That love will be the only lasting legacy
The legacy
The lasting legacy
Track Name: I Awake
I Awake - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

I awake
Entering the sea
Her beauty explodes my heart into inifinite pieces
She carries all of me
Stories in lines and scars
Doesn't ask me how
'Cause she knows

I am lifted
I am small
Reverent to the mystery of it all
Too long have I waited
Too long have I waited
To see

I see the curves in her swells connected in my woman
Moving tides
We are kindreds with the moon

I am lifted
I am small
Reverent to the mystery of it all
Too long have I waited
Too long have I waited
To see

On her waves
White light dances
Warmth on down from a distant sun
Kissing my shoulders
Lights a way to the world beneath

I am lifted
I am small
Reverent to the mystery of it all
Too long have I waited
Too long have I waited
To see
Track Name: Spirit Child
Spirit Child - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

And so I go
Into the night
Where it’s quiet now
No need to hide

And you’ll be there
By the river
And you’ll be there
In the dark

But I don’t understand the language that you speak
Spirit child
If only I had
Wings to fly
If only I had wings
Spirit child

Oh Oh

Sometimes I feel like a shadow
Fallen down
Then the wind will catch my spirit
And clown around

It throws me back my smile
And holds me near
Shows me all we have is now
All we have is here

But I don’t understand the language that you speak
Spirit child
If only I had
Wings to fly
If only I had wings
Spirit child

Oh Oh

But I don’t understand the language that you speak
Spirit child
If only I had
Wings to fly
If only I had wings
Spirit child
Track Name: Here is the rhythm
Here Is The Rhythm - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

Here is the rhythm
It's humming all around
A pattern in the stars
The whirls on your fingertips

Take that rhythm
It's yours it's mine it's everyone's
Let it lighten your feet
And comfort your weariness
Now don't go overthinking it
'Cause it's as simple as the pulse inside of your heart

Wo yeah wo wo yeah wo wo yeah
Never beginning or ending always this way
Wo yeah wo wo yeah wo wo yeah
Never born never dies
Always remains

Here is the Rhythm
It's humming all around
In a symmetry of motion
Breathing in and breathing out

Take that rhythm
It's yours it's mine it's everyone's
Let it lighten your feet
And comfort your weariness
Now don't go overthinking it
'Cause it's as simple as the pulse inside of your heart
'Cause it's as simple as the pulse inside of your heart

Wo yeah wo wo yeah wo wo yeah
Never beginning or ending always this way
Wo yeah wo wo yeah wo wo yeah
Never born never dies
Always remains
Track Name: Do you Hear Me
Do You Hear Me - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman


When I was a child
And I felt fear
I saw the monsters
In the dark
I’d draw a sphere around my heart
To banish the darkness
And let courage bloom

I’d sing
Any melody would do
Any semblance of a tune
To keep me safe

Do you hear me now
Do you hear me
Do you hear me now
Do you

And now that I’m a woman
When I’m walking in the dark
I draw a sphere around my heart
To banish the doubt
And let courage bloom

I sing
Any melody will do
Any semblance of a tune
To keep me safe

Do you hear me now
Do you hear me
Do you hear me now
Do you

If I were a soldier
And I was walking into to war
And if I were a sailor
Faced with a vast and endless sea

I’d sing
Any melody would do
Any semblance of a tune
To keep me safe
Yeah I’d sing
Any melody would do
Any semblance of a tune
To keep me safe

Do you hear me now
Do you hear me
Do you hear me now
Do you

Do you hear me now
Do you hear me
Do you hear me now
Do you
Track Name: Waiting For You
Waiting For you - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

She placed a ring of white flowers
On his tomb
And the years they passed
Like one windy day
Inside a swoon

She said do you remember what it was like
To walk this earth
To look up at the stars
To quench your thirst

I have cried a river for you
I have cried an entire ocean
Why am I still waiting for the past to change
Why am I still waiting for you

Waiting for you x 3
Waiting

All shining hopeful then
They called you out to war
But now picking up the pieces
I wonder
What it was all for

Now your tomb is in a line
With all the others
All laden in a row

I’ll bring you roses on your birthday
But I cannot kiss a stone

I have cried a river for you
I have cried an entire ocean
Why am I still waiting for the past to change
Why am I still waiting for you

Waiting for you x3
Waiting

Do you remember what it was like
To hold each other close
And time it stopped still you know
Time me it stopped still

Waiting for you x3
Waiting
Track Name: One By one
One By One - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

Unpacking your kisses
One by one
One by one
I hold them to my body
One by one
One by one

For the roses tomorrow they’ll be falling
One by one
One by one
And the soldiers
Tomorrow they'll be marching
One by one
One by one

And in my solitude
I'll dream of this
And when the world is mad
My anchor will be

Unpacking your kisses
One by one
One by one
I’ll hold them to my body
One by one
One by one

For roses tomorrow they’ll be falling
One by one
One by one
And the soldiers
Tomorrow they’ll be marching
One by one
One by one

And in my solitude
I'll dream of this
And when the world is mad
My anchor it will be
Track Name: Falling
Another road again
Now you’re leaving my dear friend
Sometimes it’s hard to make sense of it all
Sometimes you’re crushed and then you fall

Then I look up and see the heavens
See that we’re floating in space
See a full moon arising and I know that
There’s so much more

I know that we are all stars
That we are all miracles
We are all stars
Falling back into the infinite indivisible

Like you said
I only need to look up
Yeah you said
I only need to look up

We’re falling
We’re falling

I think of all that is between you and me
A glowing moon
The tide and a roaring sea
So when I need to remember who we are
Falling - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

Above the concrete and the clouds that separate us

From the stars
From the stars

Like you said
I only need to look up
Yeah you said
I only need to look up

To know that we are all stars
That we are all miracles
We are all stars
Falling back into the infinite indivisible

We’re falling
Falling
Track Name: Phoenix
Emerging from the ashes
From the suns fire heart
With a spirit that cannot be broken
And a song that will be sung

The phoenix flies again
Higher
The phoenix flies again
Higher

Reclaimed from the wreckage
From the embers of the fire
With feathers of bold colours
That blaze across the sky

The phoenix flies again
Higher
The phoenix flies again
Higher

So when you’re walking troubled roads
Hope as thin as paper wings
Know that above the clouds
Though you can’t see it
Though you can’t see it
There’s a way over

Above the street lights
Above the telephone poles
Above the shadows of cities tall
Always in wonder
Always in wonder

The phoenix flies again
Higher
The phoenix flies again
Higher

So when you’re walking troubled roads
Hope as thin as paper wingsKnow that above the clouds
Though you can’t see it
Though you can’t see it
There’s a way over

The phoenix flies again
Higher
The phoenix flies again
Higher

Higher x4
Track Name: Just for a moment ( Let it Be)
Just For A Moment - Song and Lyrics by Miriam Lieberman

Here I go
Falling in love again
I know I’ve been here before
But if I don’t keep my heart open
How will I ever know

The ground is gone
From beneath my feet
But I feel your radiance
Holding me
And just for a moment
I let it be
I let it be

Can’t bare to hear the news again
I know we’ve been here before
We open up the same wounds again and again
All this hatred what is it for

But then I see
The colours of the day
And I refuse to see the whole world in that way
And just for a moment in the not knowing I wait
And let it be
I let it be

Let us not be ruled by fear
Let us not be ruled by hate
Let us not be bought or sold
Let’s not believe it is too late

The ground is gone
From beneath my feet
But I feel your radiance
Holding me
So just for a moment
In the not knowing I wait
And let it be
I let it be
