  • conscious love

all souls
(Gerry Rafferty)

All souls in the wilderness
All souls are in need
All souls in the wilderness
All souls are in need

Well I’m innocent till I’m proved guilty
Yes I’m right till I’m proved wrong
I don’t need to prove my innocence
Sometimes I’m weak sometimes I’m strongs.

In a world of no compassion
You look around and see this stuff
Sex, celebrity and fashion
Sometimes I think I’ve had enough.

There’s a light that shines around you
You don’t see it everyday,
Well your life is short, it goes by so quick
And everyday is judgement day.

You like to tell me I’m lost
You never think twice
You can’t imagine the cost
You look at me you don’t see
That I’m paying the price.

I can’t deny this feeling
‘cause I know I’m in too deep
The only reason I’m in this world
Is to wake up from this sleep

(Gerry Rafferty)

sweet love
sweet

love

I’m in love with you baby
Why don’t we take it all the way
I can see us flying
I can see us trying
To keep it all in a day,
We’ll live in the moment
I’ll babysit you through the night
When we get this feeling
As the cold moon comes stealing I’ll say,
Babe I want to get inside your skin
Girl I need your loving touch
I know that you can see the mood I’m in
Girl I want you oh so much
Baby baby I got news for you
I’ve been crying like a mad man in a storm

I don’t need any book of love
I can see that you’re trying,
I don’t need any book of love
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
Yeah, that you make me feel do good
You make me feel that spring has sprung,
We can make it together

Yeah no matter the weather
I’ll say, babe I want to get inside your skin
Girl I need your loving touch,
I know that you can see the mood I’m in
Girl

I want you oh so much,
Baby baby I got news for you
I’ve been crying like a mad man in a storm,

I will love you whenever this sweetness comes around
Love you every time you make this sound, Yeah,
I will love you whenever this sweetness comes around

(Gerry Rafferty)

Money wont fix it
Power wont fix it
Sex wont fix it
Drugs wont fix it,
Fame wont fix it
Lies wont fix it
Your life wont fix it
Nobody can fix it

This sleeping sickness
Is a very strange disease,
You can’t wake up until you’re
Brought down to your knees.

Time wont heal you
Medicine wont heal you
Potions wont heal you
Your doctor can’t heal you
Your husband can’t heal you
Your wife can’t heal you
Your friends can’t heal you
Nobody can heal you

You realise that you’ve been
Living in a dream,
You see reality
And wake up with a scream.

Science won’t save you
Religion won’t save you,
Art won’t save you
I can’t save you.

Got your desires
And you do just what you please,
This sleeping sickness
Is a very strange disease,
You can’t wake up until
You’re brought down to your knees.

Love can heal you
Knowledge can heal you
Understanding can heal you
Faith can heal you,
Service can heal you
Humility can heal you
Love can heal you
Conscious love can heal you,

Conscious love,
Conscious love,
Conscious love,
Conscious love.

Abraham and Moses
And the sweet Lord Jesus,
Blessed Mohammed,
Buddha, Krishna,
Gurdjieff, Ouspensky,
Socrates and Plato,
Rembrandt, Rilke,
Leonardo da Vinci,
Rumi, Hafiz,
And Ibn’ Arabi,
Marcus Aurelius
And Johann Sebastian Bach.
