Totally Glowing Opening

by With Child

The time and the season align and I'm keeping my eye on the sky busted open It feels like a daydream combined with a wanting inside of a heart busted open This wish: a simple growing body held up on the brink of the day This stream it done washed up all that's holy Oh, what a reason to stay Now I lay pining I'm shocked what I'm finding in the depths of a day busted open
Dust mote on my window sill in growing shadow, growing shadow Whippoorwill you whisper still all is spoken, all is spoken alone Nightingale alight with will slowly floating, slowly floating Graciously you eat your fill open window, open window I'm awake and almost real a growing pillar, growing pillar alone Dust mote on my window sill in growing shadow
Old Growth 02:58
Old growth beneath me receive me completely free receive me Old growth inside me disguise me so truthfully disguise me All is alive in the love and the light of this moment All that is anchored and lasting is steadily growing Old growth complete me Old growth a towering a bowing in simple breeze always surround me
Letting Go 01:58
Irreparable I drift to sleep clouded in the fog of what I've seen way off in the meadow lying there my future self This bedazzled monument is growing round me This amazing grace how great thou art come guide me I'm letting go, I'm letting go
The weight of it all has caused me to fall in a daydream don't you wake me Lovely and strong you captured my heart like a tiger all a hunting I opened up a songbird inside I found you Oh, what the song means to the falling leaf all a sailing We've come to find all that's in sight Oh I see you don't you see me? I opened up a songbird inside I found you I found you underneath I kept you so deep inside of me
This Love 01:31
This love is a bear cave warm in the snow this love is a wild hibernating glow This love is a full moon all through the night this love is the beaming mother of the tides All good things combined inside this love This love is a strong wind filling a sail this love is a peaceful guiding gale Take me where you will inside this love
Here I Am 03:22
The nest emptied out how the shell falls upon you crumbled up by the hoof of a doe lying in you through the night the dew rests so peacefully on you spiderweb through the bough shines like diamonds within you Here I am just a man trying to understand you "Who are you?" I am singing. You sing back "I'm the space of the finding and keeping, here I am, here I am"
Sing you in a song about how your body lays so gracefully in the dawn Sing you in a song how your wild heart is quietly bewildering and strong Sing you in a song how the seedling looks cupped so gently in your palm sing you in a song Sing a song of me so what the wisemen lost arrives to me in a dream Sing a song of me to wish the best in things, to see my blues washed out to sea Sing a song of me to open up my heart and listen to the prayer of everything sing a song of me
There's a wildness, there's a kindness a hope in the heavy hanging moon this eruption in the distance I pray to you, why don't you pray to me? I kneel to you, why don't you bow to me? Wear a gold ring drink a potion keep a key close to your heart Don't see a difference in the hunting and the killing and the eating. Taste the rainbow, break a magic wand I'm real today though i'm mostly washed up and guttered like rain I'm real today and I see no fault in anything at all.
Summon Love 04:20
So long, let it roll and roam roll the dice rewind Beating on a boulder, taking up your size way above a body lays alone rewind, laying on it's side beaten up & wild sewing up a sail wind wild come on darling, loosen up your eyes Summon love inside the eye SUMMON LOVE Why why Why? We are the head inside of it, rewind waking up in light waking up alive wait to see what's real open like a diamond open like a sign. Be the heaven on a wind be wise hovering in the woods AH AH AH rewind
