Song Description

The original "Little by Little" idea came in 2000, then, most of the lyrics were written in early 2005 in preparation for this album. I wrote this when I began to feel within the whole of the world, from a previous sense of being separate from other beings and apart in existence. I felt like a kid again, for awhile, and wanted to have a primer to recite, to remind me about the nature of things and things of nature, to reconcile and understand that we are all in this together as we merge into forever. Dedicated to Adam "Nalu" Keola, and my good friend, Jonathan Dodge Mayer, who made my musical dreams come true.

Story Behind the Song

One of those diddies that got stuck in my head, with the chorus coming first, and then the verses wrapped around that.

******* ***********

We are moving away from here, as love makes life we play.
We are bright and burning stars of light, we are blue-green dazzling!
We are oceans of air, and water, on a rock, where plants make sugar crystals.
With light sent afar from a twinkling star, Lord Sun rules our existence.
We're playing in the icy wind, we are keepers of the coal.
We are dancing sparks, above the fire, that never will grow cold. And we go...

Little by little, by little, by little, by little, by little, by little,
by little, by little, by little, by little, by little we go.
Little by little, by little, by little, by little, by little, by little,
by little, and oh so slow. Oh so slow...

We are fins and fur, leaves and moss, we are love and skin and bones.
We are rocks and soil, and bright sunlight, on a spaceship we call home.
We are birds of many feathers flying, migrating back home.
We are creation's paradox, we arise against the flow. And we go...

Little by little, by little, by little, by little, by little, by little,
by little, by little, by little, by little, by little we go.
Little by little, by little, by little, by little, by little, by little,
by little, and oh so slow. Oh so slow...

We are black and white, blue and green, red and yellow too.
We are tall and short, stout and thin, we are old and we are new.
We are plenty here, we're rare out there, we are scared and we are brave.
We are hard and soft, we are mean and nice, we are surfing on our wave.

We are mud, pond water, love and light. We are keepers of the flame.
Our bodies are born, but we will never die, though we're surely bound to change.
And we go...

Little by little, by little, by little, by little, by little, by little,
by little, by little, by little, by little, by little we go.
Little by little, by little, by little, by little, by little, by little,
by little, and oh so slow. Oh so slow...
