WHAT TO DO IN THE RAIN It’s been 24 hours since it started to rain - I’m in my room just listening since it came Been stilling my thirst - enjoying the sound - when the raindrops burst I feel the ground Been dreaming out loud - stars on the ceiling - my thoughts in music - brushstrokes of feeling What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there A universe in my kitchen - rolling streams of heaven’s tears indecipherable as dreams The water of life - cleaning the streets - oh who am I - will you hear my cry I wake myself from dreaming - half expecting - Noah’s arc to pick me up But that’s never gonna happen - ’cause there’s no place - that’s dry and safe if you wanna escape What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there We are all drowning in our lives of things - things More and more we’re losing sight - of what is real and what is right I storm down the stairs - relentless and charged - full of fear but I don’t care I’m ready to go - full power - catapult myself out of my tower ’Cause I’m ready to own it - what is to come - the intuition is never wrong This is the life - I learn to live it slower - a shift of planes - ooh it’s never over I meet myself - love and light - the part of me that never dies Darling please - hand me my crown - I am jumping - I’m ready to drown What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there There’s really nothing to it - just do it - you can learn to swim right through it Over and over - reborn each moment - I forget my name and get back in the rain Credits: Autoharp, voice, violin and viola: Alice Rose Cello: Gabor Hyartani Voice, rain pots, Harmonium: Jamie Collier

Heart High 04:34
Heart High I’m in love with you - and I haven’t even kissed you - I’m in love with you - and I haven’t ever missed you I’m in love with you - we’ve only spoken a few words - I’m in love with you - and you don’t even know And I don’t have to have you - no no no - this love is all mine - I’d be ready to share with you But there’s no pressure from my side - ’cause love just is and love transcends and either way I’m fine I don’t have to have you, babe - you’re already mine I’m in love with you - days come and go - I’m in love with you - just going with the flow I’m in love with you - my heart is singing from the dark - I’m in love with you - even if it’s just for the arts - thank you heart! And I don’t have to have you - no no no - this love is all mine - I’d be ready to share with you But there’s no pressure from my side - ’cause love just is and love transcends and either way I’m fine I don’t have to have you, babe - you’re already mine I’m in love with you - and I haven’t told a soul - I’m in love with you - if I do it’ might grow cold I’m in love with you - I’m also in it for the thrill - I’m in love with you - babe maybe you can tell I’m in love with you - for good times and for worse - I’m in love with you - for sickness and in health I’m in love with you - and I will love others too - I’m in love with you - and there’s nothing you have to do And I don’t have to have you - no no no - this love is all mine - I’d be ready to share with you But there’s no pressure from my side - ’cause love just is and love transcends and either way I’m fine I don’t have to have you, babe - you’re already mine Inside my heart - my love will never die, oh! Thank you heart for making me high!

Baby please - don’t get me wrong - I didn’t mean to write something hurtful or strong I much prefer to talk or touch - to this high abstract plane - we communicate on We’re just getting to know each other a bit - and it’s not so easy to guess what’s ahead And who is sitting across from you - where is he from - what does he do So give me a squeeze a smile and a hug - let me melt to the touch ’Cause when we meet - nothing is spoken - yet all we need to know is said and it’s a token A token of love, a token of love a token of love, oohhooo It’s not so easy for me to see - do we get along or do we disagree And I can’t recognize yet how you feel - there’s a joker in the mix - a poker face that I can’t read People that we like and people that we love - when the going gets tough - the tone can get rough And I am raw with an open heart - I am strong yet sometimes I fall apart So give me a squeeze a smile and a hug - let me melt to the touch ’Cause when we meet - nothing is spoken - yet all we need to know is said and it’s a token A token of love, a token of love a token of love, oohhooo

21 04:12
I’m 21 - getting on the train - shining like the sun in the rain I’m 21 - with a pack on my bag - stepping into the unknown I’m 21 - all insecure and pale - my lines are thin and frail I’m 21 - with the tiger’s courage - got my mother’s worries And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me Dadadadadum... I’m 21 - running away from home - wanna be on my own I’m 21 - with the urge to prove - failing hard at being smooth I’m 21 - flying the magic carpet - not sure that I like it I’m 21 - sailing the 7 seas - oh my heart is not at ease And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me I’m 21 - in the field of tomorrow - with feelings I borrow I’m 21 - with the adventurous bones - I’m rolling with the stones I’m 21 - in the turkish market - on the flying carpet I’m 21 - and I’m not standing still - I’ve got my own will And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me Dadadadadum... I’m 21 - with scorpio rising - ever surprising

Ever since all the while spinning wheels unrecognized - an incomparable sense of the undenied and intense With a handful of dreams in the back of my trunk - the undeniably sexy - shines like the sun The places we explore suddenly appearing doors - where there used to be walls - we now show it all You can come as you are - you can shine like a star - if you’re ready and dare - it’s all for the taking right here Berlin is for dreamers - believers in change - even when we don’t know how to - we just experiment Utopia is here where the magic happens - like a child scientist naive and maddening Berlin is for dreamers - trusting in life - that in the midst of the chaos - we will survive Want a home to be close - intimacy overall and we crave to be free - oh you can’t count on me So change your mind and go deep - risk it all for work and love - just decide to be free And honour your needs - stand on the bridge industrial beauty - far beyond brutal and guilty Into the grey the sun sinks - 7 months till it returns - so wanderlust open your heart You can teach it how to trust - and give strength to embrace once again this crazy place Berlin is for dreamers - believers in change - even when we don’t know how to - we just experiment Utopia is here where the magic happens - like a child scientist naive and maddening Berlin is for dreamers - trusting in life that in the midst of the chaos - love will survive Love will survive - oohoo oohoo - love will survive - oho - love will survive!

If I could love - I’d love you till death - look into your eyes - drown in their abyss If I could love - you’d be the one - I would admire - you’d be my sun If I could love - you’d be my ocean - moon rising surely - ever in motion If I could love - we’d melt together - like a living poem - forever and ever If I could love - I’d rise from the dark - let go of my shadows and re-enter the heart Leave solitude behind - say no goodbyes - then I could love and we’d fly together Under the blue skies - light as a feather If I could love - I’d hold you tight - fall into your arms - cry like a child If I could love - you’d be the one - I’d tell all my secrets to - before I’m gone If I could love - my life would flourish - the intrinsic poison - could no longer be nourished If I could love - life would be real and all my scratches could slowly heal If I could love - move close in the low lights - we’d hold hands and maybe share a dance Should we be - bound and free - I could break away and steal a kiss From a cherry blossom tree place it on your lips If I could love - my heart would be open - even when it’s painful it wouldn’t close down If I could love - the ugly and the pretty - I’d be ready for life as it is lf i could love life as it is - lf i could love life as it is...

Calm Charm 05:33
Life is a walk on the knife’s edge - life is a walk who knows what’s next Life is a walk on a summer’s day - life is a walk sometimes it’s a break Life is a walk with a sense of release - life is a walk into the deep mysteries Life is a walk on the ocean side - life is a walk in the blackest night Breathe deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright Life is a walk like a crazy drug - life is a walk just staying with the rush Life is a walk all simple and calm - life is a walk sometimes we carry arms Life is a walk with nowhere to go - life is a walk for the young and the old Life is a walk sometime we take the bike - sometimes we rest our tired smiles Breathe deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright Life is a walk at times it’s a storm - life is a walk with a scent of cinnamon Life is a walk with the loss of innocence - life is a walk with remembrance Life is a walk sometimes it’s right when it’s wrong - life is a walk seems there’s too much going on Life is a walk with friends right and left - life is a walk with no family left Breathe deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright Breathe Deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright

Divine 06:13
I am a knight - polishing my armour - carrying my sword - fighting my own karma I am warrior - making my own glory - free to reign - writing my own story Even with the thunder - in my heart and mind - on a cloudy day i can feel the sunlight There’s a desert landscape on my skin - I’m cracked and burned from within. I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old The lack of rain - in my life caused a drought - the lack of love - caused the death of the heart Black blossoms from the breath - I inhale the bitterness - I sit with the pain and exhale again I go through the fire - my own personal hell - I look at the monsters - oh babe can you tell I go to the grave with just a dollar in my pocket - with a heart full of grace - atleast i know I’ve got it. I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old A man without a country - a traitor to my blood - trying to clean the past away - with a dirty toothbrush I lost my faith - long before there was a war - this was moving through me - as I scrubbed the floor I was a coward - now I’m not - I was a traitor - I learned a lot This is the end - of a life as I knew it - what’s yet to come - don’t know if I blew it. I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old

I play the chords on my harp - fall in tune with the heart I sense that the end is near - lurking here in the dark I’m sitting on the ground - I can feel the ancient sounds Lives that have passed and gone - I connect with the hum A voice that enthralls you - a voice that calls you - the music ancient magically alive Saying what no words can describe: Just live your life - live your life. I met my edge - where nothing is fixed - the data ever changing - reality facing The darkness in me - that will never go away - I sit with the pain - and embrace it again Some say that home - is where the heart blooms - and my heart’s right here with you in this room In this moment I’m done - tomorrow I might be gone - and I ask myself again - what will happen then? A voice that enthralls you - a voice that calls you - the music ancient magically alive Saying what no words can describe: Just live your life - live your life.

BLUE(live) 05:58
Blue Today I'm blue in lack of words - Wanna take to the sky just like the birds Today I'm blue a little off - It’s a note in the music - Spices it up Today I'm blue a lagoon of feelings - it’s a waterfall just passing through me Today I'm blue don’t mess it up! I’ll do that myself when I’ve had enough Today I'm blue- feels more like yellow - like the sun - warm and mellow Today I'm blue, green and black - I’m all those colors and more than that Today I'm blue I miss what we had - I’m in this mood - where I flirt with the past Today I'm blue a little out of tune - love it though swings and croons Today I'm blue just shimmering pale - like the moon’s thin beautiful veil Today I'm blue and so are you - you know how misery loves company - Miss Blue does too Today I'm blue- feels more like yellow – just like the sun - warm and mellow Today I'm blue, green and black - I’m all those colors and more than that Today I'm blue I let it be - if I just am I can be free Today I'm blue with a hint of yellow -red and green like the rainbow Today I'm blue and it’s not because of you - it was there before you came through my door Today I'm blue don’t ask me why - it’s just a mood and it’s alright I'm blue, I'm yellow, I'm green, I am white – I'm pink, I'm black, I'm all those colours and more than that
