Song Description

Speaks of the impermanence of all things; that underneath the appearance of the manifest world-the world of illusion or Maya- lies that which is immeasurable; that which is real.

Story Behind the Song

My good friend John Austin, publicist for James Redfield, author of The Celestine Prophecy, made his transition from this world in November of 2004. In January of 2005 I wrote this song and we performed it at his memorial service. John was enigmatic, to

LIKE A RIDER IN THE WIND
LIKE A PRAYER WHEEL THAT SPINS
LIKE A HEALING RAIN, YOU CAME
TO SHOW US
THAT THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM
ALL OF THIS COULD BE A DREAM
WRITTEN IN THE SANDS OF TIME
THAT CALL US

AND WHILE WE ARE HERE
THE ANSWER SEEMS CLEAR:
WE ARE HERE TO BE THE LIGHT
FOR EACH OTHER
AND WHEN WE ARE GONE
THE LIGHT WILL SHINE ON
THROUGH OUR HEARTS
AND THROUGH THE VEILS OF MAYA

WHO CAN SAY WHAT'S IN A NAME?
IS WHO WE ARE AND IT THE SAME?
OR IS IT JUST THE BOWL WE PLACE
BENEATH THE FOUNTAIN?
FILL IT UP WITH ALL YOU CAN
STILL WE'RE SO MUCH GREATER THAN...
WE ARE THAT WHICH HOLDS
THE SKY AND MOUNTAIN

AND WHEN WE AWAKE,
THE MEMORY WE TAKE
WILL BE THE MEMORY OFOUR LOVE
FOR EACH OTHER
AND WHEN WE ARE GONE
THE LOVE WILL LIVE ON
THROUGH OUR HEARTS
AND THROUGH THE VEILS OF MAYA
THROUGH OUR HEARTS
AND THROUGH THE VEILS OF MAYA
