A Stirring of the Soul

From me to you ... One of my favorite artist ... Tonight, do something you were meant to do.


Feel it falling off like clothing
Taste it rolling on your tongue
See the lights above you glowing
Oh and breathe them deep into your lungs

It was always simple
Not hidden hard
You've been pulling at the strings
Playing puppeteer for kings
And you've had enough

But the search ends here
Where the night is totally clear
And your heart is fierce
So now you finally know
That you control where you go..you can Steer

So hold this feeling like a newborn
Oh and freedom surging through your veins
You have opened up a new door
So bring on the wind, fire and rain


It was always simple
Not hidden hard
You've been playing at a game
Called Remembering Your Name
And you've stuffed it up


Ohh..
And now you finally know
That you control where you go..you can Steer


Cause you've been listening for answers
Oh but the city screams 
And all your dreams go unheard


Ohh..
Get out of the box
And step into the clear

Ohh.. 
So now you finally know you can.. Steer

  2. I love listening to the Australian accent as she is telling us about her inspiration for the song. "It's a ridiculous waste of time to do anything that I'm not happy with..." That's a great take on life. I also saw you participate in the talk with that literary agent...Sara Megibow?... saw your pic pop up in the live chat and I said to myself, "Hey that's E.J."

  4. Very nice. I read it first as if it were a poem and then listened. Works both ways. :)

  6. Yup. For the most part we create out destinys. Tragic or successful.

  9. What a great song. It is so inspiring for all of us, and especially for those venturing into careers and interests that are a bit daring, or for those who feel stuck in where they are. Thanks for the link.
