Well I am so so lucky, this life I'm living where every decision is a luxury and I'm free to walk, to ride, to run from one end of the planet to another and beyond If my heart desires, and yes it's on fire burning, churning, every day I'm learning what it means to be in this wealthy minority and I can't help but ask why me? why me? why me? I conclude with gratitude that I've got to make the most of this opportunity I give thanks for my circumstance and vow to spread the love to the best of my ability ooh a oh oh oh oh hey yeah Don't take it for granted, over indulge, bulge waste time living nine to five not alive hardly living, you know it's all about giving to yourself, your family, community and beyond make healthy bonds with those around and cherish those special connections you've found and they're bound to grow in strength we need it to get us through inspire each other with what we can do to make this a better place to be and keep on going till every brother and sister is free I conclude with gratitude... As a world of chaos is turned upside down be still within, listen to the sound of the Life Force pumping through the air, through the ground this is our chance, our power is now to celebrate, create for life is precious and to be embraced in the face of evil, have faith and pray gather your energy, we all need to heal be true to life, keep it real, keep it real I conclude with gratitude...

PRAY – LYRICS I spared a thought for you today I’m hoping that you find your way Through the all-pervading haze I pray And if you don’t know where to start Feel your life’s been torn apart From the depths then of my heart I pray Said I pray that your children they will grow up strong And I pray that your times of pain won’t be for long And I pray that you’ll have the strength to carry on And I pray – in times of need there’ll be someone for you Speak to me then of your fears And of that which you hold dear My mind is open and are my ears And though I may not hold the key To all the answers that need be I spare with you, you spare with me Humanity Said I pray that your children they will grow up strong And I pray that your times of pain won’t be for long And I pray that you’ll have the strength to carry on And I pray – in times of need there’ll be someone for you What else matters more than this Warmth of heart, strength of spirit To really feel the laughter and the visions and the fears To live the most of life that you can live whilst you are here Be strong, have faith That you will be loved, warm and safe I pray Said I pray that your children they will grow up strong And I pray that your times of pain won’t be for long And I pray that you’ll have the strength to carry on And I pray – in times of need there’ll be someone for you © saritah 2004

Said I am feeling so good in my skin extra bounce in my step, extra width in my grin I'm feeling so good in my skin, this is where true freedom begins I am feeling so good in my skin, extra warmth in my heart, extra width in my grin I'm feeling so good in my skin, this is where true freedom begins I'm going all the way from here into forever I'm here to stay I'm not stopping, never I'm on my way Life's the fuel that keeps my fire burning strong You gotta get lost to find yourself again Gotta greet a stranger to make a new friend

I'm on a journey, long long journey please don't ask me where I'm headed to and if you ask me where I'm from I'm not quite sure how I'd answer you I'm moving so fast, got the wind in my hair don't quite know where I'm going, but I know I'm gonna get there see I left the place that I called home I'm roaming round this land and so home for me now is any place I choose to go cause I'm a free wanderer wandering free this life of mine is crazy as the world I live it in it's easy to feel like I'm not making a difference but always always always I have faith in all that's good I'd put my arms around the world right now embrace her if I could cause I'm a free lover lovin' free well I've got to keep on moving, giving, living, loving, learning have faith people for the new day it is dawning this tiny little chunk of time we're given that we call life got to do the best we can with it, no moment happens twice cause I'm a free wanderer wandering free (c) saritah 2004

Sun on my skin, let the healing begin daily doctor the wind blow away fears within I'm in the homeland there's a eucalyptus tang in the sweet summer air and I'd so much rather be here than there I'm in the homeland And I feel alive I've never seen so many stars in a clear night sky And I feel alive I will remember these moments for the rest of my life I'm at home in the homeland Walk at your own pace cause life's no race walk at your own pace and feel some light on your face Mother ocean lies constantly at my side sinking into her pink father sun says his goodbye at the end of each day for that's the way it is in the west elemental symphony performing at it's best I'm in the homeland And I feel alive I've never seen so many stars in a clear night sky And I feel alive I will remember these moments for the rest of my life I'm at home in the homeland I belong in the homeland Walk at your own pace cause life's no race walk at your own pace and feel some light on your face I'm getting strong, I'm getting stronger I'm here in the homeland

Well I'm sittin here in this room, been my home now for 2 years that's a long time for me and now it's been decided it's time for some transformation - I'm not gonna fight it I'm moving on, moving on, moving on through this life of mine they say that transformation comes from desperation and inspiration leads to celebration I feel a change comin on, hard and strong I'm moving on, moving on, moving on through this life of mine You've got to jump off that cliff to find out how to use your wings cause it's just way too easy to keep on doing the same thing I see it all around, people stuck in the same day for 15 years it's not the life for me, gotta learn to face these doubts and fears I don't know what's going to happen I like life as a mystery and I trust in what the Universe has in store for me gotta let go with faith rather than hold on with fear I'm moving on, I'm moving on - change is here cause I've been kicked right out of my comfort zone and it's times like these that I am most prone to dig deeper, dig deeper what treasures will I find this time I'm moving on, moving on, right through this life of mine (c) saritah 2004

Safe again I've escaped the madness and I've found a special place Safe again Life reassures me in a welcoming embrace Remembered that I Am Free everything's as it needs to be Safe Again I've remembered and I'm coming back, back to Earth Safe Again living life for all that life is worth Remembered that I Am Free everything's as it needs to be Spend too much time worrying bout when and where and why things are as they are then I look to the sky - it's still there makes me smile Safe again I turn to Mother Earth for strength this hour Safe again I breathe her in and I am empowered Remembered that I Am Free everything's as it needs to be Take your passion and turn it into gold work on it every day and the right way will unfold climb and at the same time don't be scared to fall cause if you knew it already what would you be here for? don't hold back, don't hold back allow yourself to live your dreaming, you're on the right track don't hold back, don't hold back you'll never know if you don't go where your heart is really at Life will bring you what you want if you hold your faith up strong life will bring you what you want if it's for the good of All (c) Saritah 2004

Jonny had a boat, he sailed it upon the river he loved the way the sunlight on the water did glitter every morning when he woke, Jonny'd raise his hands to the sky saying 'Give Thanks for this day, I Give Thanks for Life' He was a continuous cruiser he was a mover and groover he sailed his boat on the river singing A happy man was Jonny for he was free to roam a river his best friend, a boat his home he could think of no better way for life to be for Blessed are those who set themselves free yeah He was a continuous cruiser he was a mover and groover he sailed his boat on the river singing

Red-faced man, red-faced man it's not too late to change your plan do you really wanna go on living life like you are? Red-faced man, red-faced man it's not too late to change your plan do you realise your life's in your hands? red-faced man, to me you're the epitome of this disempowered society a system based on greed and not necessity and when I asked him if he enjoys what he does there was a big big long pause and then the question got ignored and he told me how good he was at what he does I said 'hey that's great, but you just finished telling me how much you hate not being able to have it easy there's no difference between you and me except I'm looking for freedom of mind and spirit, if you wanna know joy, you're gonna have to get with it' follow your heart, not the dollar sign the nitter natter chatter, leave that behind follow your heart, not the dollar sign cease your useless abuse and truth you will find follow your heart, not the dollar sign think you can sell the Earth but you can't buy time he's jealous of my freedom, imprisoned by his own mind 'how dare you be so happy' he cried 'how dare you be having such a good time' Mr Red-Faced Man do you see the stars at night? do you hear the birds' call, do you envy their flight? your heart: does it beat? the air: do you breathe? Mr Red-Faced Man, please!
