Nothin' But Now    [Listen to Sample ]


Sun rises, wind blows
Flowers bloomin', Nature knows
That there's nothin' but now

Children laughin', dogs bark
There's a constant beating here in my heart
All the clues I need can be found
Reminding me there's nothin' but now

All these thoughts go 'round my head
Dreams and memories, things I've read
Regrets and worries, hopes and doubts
Crowd this present moment out

You look into an hour glass
You see the sand fall as minutes pass
But time itself can never be found
'Cause there's nothin', nothin' but now

All these thoughts go 'round my head
Dreams and memories, things I've read
Regrets and worries, hopes and doubts
Crowd this present moment out

Blood courses through my veins
Each pulse calling out my name
I can feel it all around
'Cause I know there's nothin' but now


Shut Up & Dance    [Listen to Sample ]


Are you ready for a revolution
Some kind of global evolution
You talk about who's right and wrong
When all we want is to get along…

Chorus:
Shut up and dance
And shake things loose
Let's move on past
What's between me and you
Let's take a chance
And try something new
Let's shut up and dance
And do what our hearts tell us to do

Are you ready for a transformation
To move beyond yourself and every nation
Grab my hand and come with me
Let's show the world how life could be

Chorus

Can't stand still, can't keep my feet on the ground
Gotta dance until we turn this world around


Love Is Where You Are    [Listen to Sample ]


I've heard you say you want to find someone
Who loves you like no one has ever done
You've searched the world for this love before
To find yourself back at your front door

So many loves have caught ablaze and died
Because no one had stoked the fire inside
For flames of love to rise within your heart
You must feel that love is where you are

There's no need to look for love elsewhere
When love is where you are
There's no way your heart can feel despair
When love is where you are

Now you say you don't know what to do
Because no one has found their way to you
Until they do just sink into your heart
And start to feel that love is where you are

There's no way to explain the joy you'll find
When love is where you are
There's no place as heavenly designed
When love is where you are


Falling Awake    [Listen to Sample ]


Drivin' down the same old street
Day by day and week by week
I turn left then I turn right
Come to work and park my so called life
Don't know what I'm doin' here
Just killin' time year by year
I've forgotten how it used to be
Like a child, smilin', runnin' free
Could I feel that way again
Could it be as easy as it was then, like

I'm falling awake
With each step I take
To just being alive
I'm falling in love
With who I've become
And what I feel inside
I'm having new dreams
And trying new things
And knowing it's all right
I'm falling, falling, falling awake

I drive home a different way
Imagining a brand new day
Where all I am is coming through
Is this something I could really do
Now I start to fantasize
'Bout those things that I've denied
What if life was meant to be
A place of wonder and ease
I look in the mirror and begin to see
Who I am and what I could be

Falling awake is to open your eyes
And see for the first time
That what you've been looking for has arrived


A New Day    [Listen to Sample ]


Morning, springtime
Cool air feels fine
Open eyes, look ahead
Leave yesterday behind
And welcome to a brand new day
It's worth another try

Goodbye nighttime
Hello sunshine
Rooster sings his hopeful song
Showing how life goes on
Despite the dark night
There's always a new day

Even though times are cold
Frozen dreams and truth untold
The warm sun still comes
To start a brand new day


Now Is My Time    [Listen to Sample ]


I've been lost
I've been alone
I've felt this place
Was not my home
I've had hopes
I've had dreams
But none have come true
That's how it's seemed
But a door is opening
And light is shining through

Chorus:
Now is my time
Here is my place
I'm standing in the presence of grace
Seizing the day
Claiming what's mine
Knowing it's my moment to shine

I've been knocked down
I've had doors shut
I've been where there's
No place but up
I've been let down
I've been passed by
I've felt left out
And denied
And I've been waiting my whole life
For this day to arrive

Chorus

There comes a moment when time disappears
Then you know there's nowhere but here
It's something you've always known
And it feels like comin' home

Chorus


What Do You Want?    [Listen to Sample ]


Chorus:
What do you want, what do you want
What is it that you really want
Life keeps asking you…what do you want

Do you want a new job
Wanna a brand new car
Do you want to be a movie star
Do you want to spend more time
With your family and friends
Do you want to feel that love again

Chorus

Do you want to find something
That fills you up inside
What's it going to take for you to feel that you've arrived
Do you want to sing and dance
Wanna laugh until you cry
Do you want to feel so good you could even fly

Chorus

There's a Law of Attraction
That brings all things to you
So be careful of what you think and feel
What's ever in your heart
Is on its way to you
And in time you'll realize that what you want is real

So open up your heart and feel what's there inside
'Cause life's just waiting for you to decide…

Chorus


Have A Little Faith    [Listen to Sample ]


When you're down and lonely
Feeling like you're the only one
Have a little faith, have a little faith in me

When you're lost and confused
Don't know which direction to choose
Have a little faith, have a little faith in me

Close your eyes and look inside
Find that place where your soul resides

When you're standin' all by yourself
With no one else in sight to help
Have a little faith, have a little faith in me

When you're sick and you're tired
When you've lost that precious fire
Have a little faith, have a little faith in me

Close your eyes and look inside
Find that place where your soul resides

When the world has lied to you
When all you've been taught seems so untrue
Have a little faith, have a little faith in me

Close your eyes and look inside
It's all right here, it's somethin' you just can't deny

Have a little faith, have a little faith in me


It Starts In Your Heart    [Listen to Sample ]


It starts in your heart like a warm summer breeze
Gently at first like the wind through the trees
Slowly it moves you until you can see
That it starts in your very own heart

The feeling you want is more near than you know
It's not to be found in the places you go
It only resides in the depths of your soul
And it starts in your very own heart

What is most real is what you can feel
What makes it start is an opening heart

It starts to move in as you feel your heart beat
And opens a door to a world eyes can't see
It brings you back home where we all long to be
And it starts in your very own heart


Grand New World    [Listen to Sample ]


The earth is turning
Its people yearning
For something new
The sun is rising
A light that's shining
On me and you
Centuries and centuries have led to this day
Millions of souls are waking to say

Chorus:
We live in a grand new world
Now's the time
For us to find
The wisdom in our hearts
We live in a grand new world
The chance is here
The choice is clear
The future starts right where we are

Now you're seeing
Your soul revealing
A world reborn
Where hearts are opening
Filled with brand new dreams
Of a world transformed
Centuries and centuries have led you this way
Millions of faces are turning to say

The time has finally come
To see yourself in everyone
To find a common ground
Where we can stand together now
To know that we can choose
To bring forth something new
