track 13 on my album "HEARTSONG OF THE PHOENIX"

lyrics

"TO AND FRO" by Niamh O Brien Rhiannon

Each day the world spins ‘round
Each day you’re found anew
And every little thing you need is right here right now…
Within you

I’ve a story book upon my skin, she said
Each furrow drawn can now be read,
Each laughter line sketched by time has its own memory
Unfurling … me
Soon I’ll join my family tree … become the dreaming part of me
Leave behind my vulnerability. At last my spirit will …
Go free …

Chorus

When the storm winds blow our way, the gentle reed begins to sway
And dances, whirling through the night, gathering glimpses of the lovelight
And as the rain bows her down to the ground, there is no stronger love to be found
She passed on many years ago, now her spirit moves to and fro
She hears you sigh when you are low
And when you try … she smiles awhile …
Watching you grow
And she says …

There is a gift in every day, if only you won’t hide away
Face the sun, step outside the crowd
And you may find … realising your dreams…
Is allowed

Chorus

When sadness bows you down and you feel like you’re drowning
Rise to the surface one last time, gasp for precious air, for hope, for life
For the will to survive, for the beauty you hold inside
Each day the world spins ’round
Each day you’re found anew
And every little thing you need is right here, right now …
Within you …
