LIILA

 

BORN IN A WILDSTREAM IN A MOUNTAIN SO HIGH

PLAYING WITH CLOUDS, LISTENING TO BIRDS’ LULLABIES

FEELING SAFE AND WARM

WHERE SHE THOUGHT SHE BELONGED

 

BUT THE FLOW WAS TOO STRONG TO KEEP HER OUT ON HER OWN

SHE WAS CARRIED BY THE RIVER TO A PLACE FOR HER UNKNOWN

FEELING SCARED AND LOST, WONDERING IF SHE’S CLOSE

TO THE ANSWERS SHE WAS LOOKING FOR

 

“WHY THE RIVER FLOWS FROM THE MOUNTAIN STEEP?

HOW CAN I BE SURE IT WILL EVER REACH THE SEA?”

 

BORN IN A WILDSTREAM, TRAVELED ALL OF HER LIFE

TO PLACES AND COUNTRIES, STILL WONDERING WHY

BUT WHEN SHE REACHED THE SEA, SHE FELT WHAT’S LIKE TO BE

ONE IN UNITY, ONE IN PEACE

 

STILL THE RIVER FLOWS FROM THE MOUNTAIN STEEP

NOW I CAN BE SURE IT INDEED WILL REACH THE SEA

 

 

HUMAN TAPESTRY

 

Hold my hand and dance

It’s a hypnotizing trance

Can you feel the beat now?

Let’s explore the rhythm

 

Earth is giving to us

Melodies divine

Stop and take a listen

To these nature’s rhymes

 

Tune into the power

Let the current fly

Up and down your spine

Till your spirit’s high

 

Keep your body moving

Tap your feet, keep grooving

Allow you heart to feel

Universal love

 

All worlds are family

Big cosmic family

Galactic harmony

Is where i wanna be

 

All of our ancestry

Pulsating equally

With all those next in line

As human tapestry

 

“One clear moment, one of trance

 One missed step, one perfect dance

One missed shot, one and only chance

Life is all...but one fleeting glance.”

― Sanober Khan

 

 

YOU GAVE ME THE WINGS

 

YOU GAVE ME THE WINGS

TO FLY WITH THE BUTTERFLIES IN THE MOONLIGHT

YOU TOUCHED ME SOFTLY, WHISPERED:

HURRY, CATCH YOUR STAR BEFORE THE SUNRISE

SECRETLY YOU PLAYED A SYMPHONY IN MY HEART

SUDDENLY YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME THAT I'M THE ONE...

 

YOU MELTED MY SOUL, SLOW LIKE HONEY,

SWEET LIKE TEARDROP IN THE WATERFALLS,

YOU FILLED MY HEART WITH JOY,

HAD IT PAINTED WITH THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW

SILENTLY YOU STRUMMED THE STRINGS OF HARP IN MY HEART,

HEAVENLY I FELT WHEN REALIZED THAT I'M THE ONE...

 

...SINGING YOUR SONGS,

DANCING IN THE OCEAN OF LOVE,

LIBERATING EVERLASTING RHYMES AND MELODIES

FROM MY SOUL, FROM MY HOME, FROM YOU LORD!

 

 

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE

 

THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN’T DO

IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND INTO IT, IT'S TRUE

IF THE WISH IS STRONG ENOUGH

LIFE CAN BE A MIRACLE

 

THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN’T BE

MOLD YOURSELF IN CREATIVITY

IMMAGINATION IS BOUNDLESS

YOU JUST GOTTA KEEP ON DREAMING

 

FUTURE’S PENDING, PAST IS ENDING

PRESENT IS A GIFT, SO LET’S NOT WASTE IT

FUTURE’S UNKNOWN, PAST IS ALL GONE

WE’RE GIFTED WITH A PRESENT OF TODAY

LET’S MAKE THE BEST OF IT

 

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE

BELIEVING IS WHAT MAKES IT SO

IT DEPENDS ON A POINT OF VIEW YOU CHOOSE

WHETHER YOU’RE THE ONES WHO WIN OR LOSE

 

 

LOVE IS ALL THERE IS

 

IF THERE WAS NO LOVE THERE WOULDN’T BE LIFE

IF THERE WAS NO LOVE THERE WOULDN’T BE THE SUN

IF THERE WAS NO LOVE THERE WOULDN’T BE US

 

IF THERE WAS NO LOVE THERE WOULDN’T BE YOU

IF THERE WAS NO LOVE THERE WOULDN’T BE ME

IF THERE WAS NO LOVE THERE WOULDN’T BE ANYTHING

 

LOVE IS ALL THERE IS

LOVE IS ALL AROUND

LOVE

 

THERE’S NO BLACK AND THERE IS NO WHITE

EVERYTHING IS HERE IF YOU ACCEPT IT NOW

RELAX, JUST BREATHE, NO NEED TO RUSH

 

THERE’S NO END NOR A BEGINNING

EVERYTHING IS HERE AND EVERYTHING IS NOW

LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF LIKE YOU’VE NEVER DONE

 

LOVE IS ALL THERE IS

LOVE IS ALL AROUND

LOVE

 

KEEP SMILING, KEEP SHINING, KEEP LOVING

LET YOUR EYES GLOW LIKE A THOUSAND STARS

KEEP SMILING, KEEP SHINING, KEEP LOVING

LET YOUR SPIRIT RISE ABOVE THE CLOUDS

 

SING AND DANCE IN THE MOONLIGHT

SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH EVERYONE

IT’S ALL THAT MATTERS NOW BELIEVE ME, FOR…

 

LOVE IS ALL THERE IS

LOVE IS ALL THERE IS

LOVE

 

 

300 YEARS OF SILENCE

 

300 YEARS OF SILENCE

I’M READY TO BREAK, AND READY TO MAKE

300 YEARS OF LOVING INSTEAD

 

CENTURIES AGO, HAD A VISION OF A PLACE

WHERE LOVE AND KINDNESS RULED ABOVE ALL

FIGHTING FOR THE WEAK, HELPING EVERYONE

FOOLISHLY LET DOWN BY THEM ALL

 

FOUGHT FOR HIGHER CAUSE, PUT MY FAMILY THROUGH HELL

BRAVER THEN THE ARMIES OF ROME

TOOK A WHILE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT FATE HAD IN STORE

MADE A VOW NEVER TO SPEAK OUT AGAIN

 

300 YEARS OF SILENCE

I’M READY TO BREAK, AND READY TO MAKE

300 YEARS OF LOVING INSTEAD

 

CENTURIES AGO, LONGED FOR PEACE TO PREVAIL

IN HOMES AND HEARTS MADE ONLY OF STONE

LISTENED TO NO ONE, KNEW I HAD TO MAKE A CHANGE

KNEW MY PENANCE, BUT FELT NO REMORSE

 

WHEN PUBLICLY DISGRACED BEING DRAGGED BY THE HORSE

STILL HELD MY HEAD UP HIGH AND MY SPIRIT STRONG

LAST MOMENTS AS THE PYRE STARTED TO ENFOLD

CAVED INTO MYSELF AND SLOWLY DISSOLVED

 

IT’S BEEN A LONG, LONG ROAD

I LOST MYSELF, I LOST MY SOUL

NOW I’M READY FOR MY VOICE TO BE HEARD

MY MESSAGE TO BE KNOWN

 

I’M HERE

TO SPEAK OUT, SHOUT OUT, SCREAM LOUD

NO HIDING ANY MORE

NO FEAR

NO SACRIFICING ME

I’M HERE

TO LEND A HELPING HAND

LEAD INTO A BETTER TODAY

 

300 YEARS OF SILENCE

I’M READY TO BREAK, AND READY TO MAKE

300 YEARS OF LOVING INSTEAD

 

 

DREAMLAND

 

WE ALL ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE ONE

WE ALL BREATHE THE SAME AIR

GROW BENEATH THE SAME SUN

WE ALL ARE THE TRAVELERS OF LIGHT

ON THIS JOURNEY OF LIFE

 

TO THE LEFT AND TO THE RIGHT

FIELDS OF GOLD ARE SHINING BRIGHT

UP ABOVE AND DOWN BELOW

BLUEST SKIES AND RIVER’S FLOW

 

FLUTE AND HARP ARE SINGING RHYMES

IN HARMONY WITH HOLY CHIMES

ECHOES OF DELIGHT AND JOY

ALONG WITH HUMMING BIRDS IN GLOW

 

WE ALL ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE ONE

WE ALL BREATHE THE SAME AIR

GROW BENEATH THE SAME SUN

WE ALL ARE THE TRAVELERS OF LIGHT

ON THIS JOURNEY OF LIFE

 

WOULDN’T YOU AGREE WITH ME

ONCE WE’RE FREE THEN WE CAN SEE

CLEARLY AS THE MORNING SUN

THE PLACE WE ALL ARE DREAMING OF

 

THE LAND OF PRAISE, THE LAND OF GLORY

SO PEACEFUL, SOOTHING, COMFORTING

REIGNED BY PURE ETERNAL LIGHT

GUIDING US TO THE SILENCE

 

IF YOU SEEK, THIS LAND YOU’LL FIND

THERE ANGELS DANCE AND ALL IS KIND

PEARLS IN BLOSSOM, FOUNTAINS, CLOUDS

DREAMLAND

 

WE ALL ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE ONE

WE ALL BREATHE THE SAME AIR

GROW BENEATH THE SAME SUN

WE ALL ARE THE TRAVELERS OF LIGHT

ON THIS JOURNEY OF LIFE

 

 

YOU WILL SEE

 

ALTHOUGH WE HAVE OUR DIFFERENCES, WE’RE BONDED SO DEEPLY

I SHARE MY POINTS OF VIEW WITH YOU, STILL OPEN FOR YOUR CLUES

I STILL DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND, ON THE OTHER HAND, YOU SEEM TO CARE

THAT IS WHY MY FRIEND, YOU WILL SEE

 

TOTAL OPPOSITES ARE WE, COMBINED BY SUN, THE MOON AND STARS

BROUGHT TOGETHER PURPOSELY, TO REMEMBER, FORGET AND MOVE ON

ONCE AGAIN, WE’LL MEET AGAIN, SHARE A LAUGH, MAYBE HALF

BUT TILL THAT MOMENT COMES MY BROTHER, YOU WILL SEE

 

YOU WILL SEE A BRIGHTER LIGHT, YOU WILL SEE A BRAND-NEW SIGHT

YOU WILL JUMP WITH HAPPINESS AND MAYBE YOU WILL CRY

YOU WILL SEE A WHOLE NEW WAY, SENSE AND LOGIC IN UNSEEN

DON’T YOU WORRY, I’LL BE THERE, YOU WILL SEE

 

AND JUST IN CASE YOU MISS MY WITZ, WHILE YOU’RE EXPLORING ON YOUR OWN

BE PATIENT AND I WILL BE THERE, SO WE CAN DISAGREE ONCE MORE

AND ALTHOUGH IT MAY SEEM TO YOU LIKE A VERY LONG, LONG, TIME

I WILL BE HERE BY YOUR SIDE, YOU WILL SEE

 

 

WITH EVERY BREATH

 

WITH EVERY BREATH I’M BORN ANEW

WITH EVERY SIGH I REALIZE

IT IS THE LIFE THAT’S GIVING ME REASONS TO LIVE

 

WITH EVERY SMILE BRIGHT LIGHT SHINES THROUGH

AND IN MY EYES WHOLE UNIVERSE

I RECOGNIZE THE ONE THAT’S THE SAME WITHIN ME AND YOU

 

STOP AND LISTEN TO THE TREES’ HUM

THEY ARE TELLING YOU THEIR STORY

WATCH THE CLOUDS SAIL IN THE MOONLIGHT

PAINTING CANVASES OF YOUR MIND

 

TOUCH THE RAINDROP ON A FLOWER

BATHE IN THE LIGHTNING, FEEL ITS POWER

LET YOUR FEET TAKE YOU AROUND

TRUST THE PATHS THEY CHOSE TO WALK

 

WITH EVERY BREATH I’M BORN ANEW

WITH EVERY SIGH I REALIZE

AND RECOGNIZE THE ONE THAT’S THE SAME WITHIN ME AND YOU

IT’S THE SAME WITHIN ME AND YOU

WE’RE SAME, ME AND YOU

 

 

LOVE PRAYER

 

FEELING SO GOOD I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

TRYING TO LET IT ALL OUT

WORDS CAN’T EXPRESS THE WAY I FEEL INSIDE

ONLY MY HEART SINGS OUT LOUD

 

FEELING SO GOOD I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

TRYING TO EASE THIS CHILDISH HEART

IT DANCES IT FLIES I DON’T WANT IT TO HIDE

I LET IT SMILE, LET IT SHINE, LET IT LOVE

 

LOVE IS ALL I FEEL

LOVE IS ALL AROUND

IN LOVE I DO BELIEVE

LOVE IS YOU AND I

 

ALL THIS LOVE I FEEL IS WHAT I HEAR INSIDE

MUSIC, MELODIES COMING OUT SO LOUD

PEOPLE HEAR MY PRAYER, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE

EVERY ONE OF YOU SINGING ALONG WITH ME

 

LOVE IS ALL I FEEL

LOVE IS ALL AROUND

IN LOVE I DO BELIEVE

LOVE IS YOU AND I

 

 

Chant To One

Embark on a peaceful journey through power centers and sing along to the soothing chant to feel empowered and enlightened…
