Every Day Is A Holiday eue
the gift of presence which allows me to slow down
download or lyrics

You release me, you undo me, you delight me with your laughter
You please me, you renew me, blow the cobwebs from my rafters
You seize me, you true me, you tease me, see through me
Now every day is a holiday with you

I love life, that's for sure: the mouse's whiskers and the lion's roar
And when there's stuff to do, I always do more (more, more, more, more!)
Sometimes I get a little bit tired, a little weak and a little bit wired
It's hard to stop, and I'm over the top - I'm wild eyed and crazy

Six am till ten at night; another juicy moment so I take a bite
I do my best to get it right (right, right, right, right!)
Sometimes I get a little bit wired, a little numb and a little bit tired
It's hard to stop, 'cuz I'm over the top - I can't seem to let go

You extend this invitation to breathe and sit a while
You invite me on vacation in fields of chamomile
And so, you prove salvation with your beautiful smile
Your beautiful smile, your beautiful smile, your beauty

My heart feels a little bit lighter, my smile shines a whole lot brighter
Don't wanna stop - I'm like a kid in a candy shop - since I met you ‘cause

I Won't Get Lost eue
promising to remain mindful
download or lyrics

Deadlines and meetings, late nights at the office
Phone calls, endless lists, the next report to write
Nappies and mealtimes, homework and school plays
Another pair of outgrown shoes, another outgrown bike

I look for the forest in these trees
This endless searching feels like a disease
What am I afraid of? I don't know...

A Kindle full of bloody words, the latest terror movie hit
CNN news feed checking on the mobile phone
Romance novels, fairy tales, pornography and Tinder
The high of lust obscures the fact that I am still alone
Coffee and a morning donut, alcohol and cigarettes
Another midnight grab-it-quick greasy takeaway
Facebook and Flickr, YouTube and Instagram
The hours spent browsing, clicking, Amazon, eBay

I won't get lost! I promise I am coming home
I won't get lost! The universe sings in my bones
I won't get lost! I'll close my eyes, take a deep breath in
I won't get lost! The peace I want is there, within

. All I see is love, love, love, love, love within

What am I afraid of? There's nothing to fear
What am I afraid of? I can be here!
