Song Lyrics

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Seek the maid from this song, now white is her hair
She once spoke to this heart of mine
She once spoke to this heart of mine

 

She asked me to sit with her and hear her tale
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Deep into the mysteries that she would unveil
How she spoke to this heart of mine
How she spoke to this heart of mine

 

What are these words, from where do they stem
Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
My years I have pondered to unravel them
To bring peace to this heart of mine
To bring peace to this heart of mine

 

When faced with a quest or a journey you dread
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Let go of the worries bewitching your head
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine

 

The answers you seek are beyond your own lies
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Beyond all the masks deceiving the eyes
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine

 

The path is a mystery the road is unknown
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Look back and release all the forms you’ve outgrown
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine

 

The journey continues, together we dance
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
All life is connected and in resonance
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine

 

It’s not always clear what the oracle spoke
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
We’re weaving our tales with the words we invoke
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine
Remember this, oh dear heart of mine

 

(Selkie Anderson 2022)

We’ve always been around but our journey has just begun
Descendants of the stars, we are children of the sun
Our hearts are filled with sparks, a fire that never dies
Our essence is reflected inside each other’s eyes

 

Earth and Sky and the ocean’s soothing lullaby
We live we laugh we cry, we fall and we fly
It doesn't get better than this, this moment is all there ever is
Between earth and sky, earth and sky

 

We get lost from time to time, lose touch with what is real
Forgetting what we know - it's all part of the deal 
The ups and downs of life, be vulnerable, be brave
You’re alive and here, my friend, enjoy to ride the waves

 

Earth and Sky and the ocean’s soothing lullaby
We live we laugh we cry, we fall and we fly
It doesn't get better than this, this moment is all there ever is
Between earth and sky, earth and sky

 

We set out on this quest, to live what we have learned
The lessons of the past are just experiences earned
All souls walk their own path, the universe expands
We’re alive and here, my friend, the journey never ends

 

Earth and Sky and the ocean’s soothing lullaby
We live we laugh we cry, we fall and we fly
It doesn't get better than this, this moment is all there ever is
Between earth and sky, earth and sky
Between earth and sky, earth and sky

Strong just like the oaken tree
I stand sure, I stand sure
Where the sunset meets the sea
I stand sure, I stand sure

 

The elder days long gone
And we still echo their song
The elders taught us one thing
That is: to stand sure, to stand sure

 

Deeply rooted in the ground
I stand sure, I stand sure
Life unfolding all around
I stand sure, I stand sure

 

The elder days long gone
And we still echo their song
The elders taught us one thing
That is: to stand sure, to stand sure

 

Engraved in ancient stone
Stand sure, stand sure
In mind, in heart, in bone
Stand sure, stand sure

 

Moving gently with the wind
We stand sure, we stand sure
Grown beyond all that we’ve been
We stand sure, we stand sure

 

The elder days long gone
And we still echo their song
The elders taught us one thing
That is: to stand sure, to stand sure

Breathe in breathe out
Breathe in breathe out
Find out what you’re about,
Breathe in breathe out

 

You may feel like just a drop in an ocean
Yet what is an ocean but a multitude of drops

 

Breathe in breathe out
Breathe in breathe out
Find out what you’re about
As within so without

 

You may feel like just a drop in an ocean
Yet what is an ocean but a multitude of drops

 

Keep breathing, my friend
It’s only change it’s not the end
Keep breathing, my friend
It’s only change it’s not the end

Dies ist eine Reise
durch das Gefüge der Zeit
Weiter immer Weiter führt der Weg
Kein Ziel, nur eine Richtung
und die Sterne mein Geleit
Wenn das Lebensrad sich weiter dreht

 

Auch wir sind große Krieger
Weben Worte, schmieden Lieder
Die Feder in der Hand ist unser Stahl
Wir sind Chronisten der Legenden
Unser Glück in unseren Händen
Und wenn die Reise endet,
dann beginnt sie
Noch einmal…

 

Viele Leben sind vergangen
und wir sind noch immer hier
All die Jahre und Geschichten ziehn vorbei
Unsere Wege sind verwoben
unsere Herzen schlagen gleich
wir sind Träumer wir sind Wandrer wir sind frei

 

Auch wir sind große Krieger
Weben Worte, schmieden Lieder
Die Feder in der Hand ist unser Stahl
Wir sind Chronisten der Legenden
Unser Glück in unseren Händen
Und wenn die Reise endet,
dann beginnt sie
Noch einmal…

 

Aug’ in Aug’ mit uns’rem Schicksal,
Dichten Lieder und Gesang
Ziehen weiter immer Weiter mit dem Wind
Unser Ursprung ist das Rätsel
Unsere Heimat ist der Klang
Wir erfahren durch Geschichten wer wir sind

 

Wir blicken vorwärts
Da führt kein Weg zurück
Ich kann von hier die Grenzen seh’n
Dort liegt die Freiheit
Weit hinter’m Horizont
Ich will die Wege dorthin geh’n

 

Auch wir sind große Krieger
Weben Worte, schmieden Lieder
Die Feder in der Hand ist unser Stahl
Wir sind Chronisten der Legenden
Unser Glück in unseren Händen
Und wenn die Reise endet,
dann beginnt sie
Noch einmal…

Was afraid of tomorrow
But I’m letting that go
Focused on sorrow
I’m letting that go

 

Letting that go (x 4)

 

Expectations are tough
But I’m letting that go
Enough is enough
I’m letting that go

 

Letting that go (x 4)

 

Thoughts with no end
But I’m letting that go
Join me my friend
We can let it all go

 

Let it all go (x4)

 

Got my feet on the ground
As I let it all go
Aliveness surrounding me
Let it all go

 

Let it all go (x4)

 

We are free as the birds
When we let it all go
Freed by four words, my friend,
let it all go (x2)

 

Let it all go (x4)

Mythologies are filled with wondrous worlds and stranger shores,
With realms beyond the waters to explore.
Magical creatures, distant unknown lands,
Ways to learn more and to expand
That which we think we know.
The urge to find and to discover and to grow
Has long directed our fate.
Together with the need to understand and to create,
We’ve sailed the seas, found many lands and beings there to name,
And yet the mysteries of the passage shall remain.

 

Some say, there is an island hidden in the mist,
A world where sprites and fae exist.
A world only revealed to seekers of pure heart.
A place of magic, healing, ancient art.
Wisdom and wonder called us out to find this shore
And ponder legends lost and found once more.
A place where those who went before
Still linger for a while,
The lost and legendary isle.

 

Some spoke to me of places underneath the waves
Which open up to those souls who are brave
Enough to leave their element behind.
Brave to explore the wonders they may find
They say it is a realm of otherworldly voices and of myths unseen,
Of fins and flukes, kelp forests dancing in the stream.
It is beneath the surface that we find
These strangest creatures of a kind
So like and so unlike our own.
Their ancient stories long were known
To those who sailed the seas and tides.
It is a place where watery fairytales abide.
The tales of those who deep within the oceans dwell,
And time and time again we find ourselves enchanted by the spell
Cast through their otherworldly song,
Which speaks of ebb and flow long gone.

 

Some seek no magical nor promised land,
For them the greatest journey is to understand
What lies beyond the setting sun.
The world itself is wondrous enough for those who choose to see the fun
Within the quest of sailing out beyond the known.
The tides less traveled, where true character is shown.
A new horizon, awaiting to be found and seen,
The journey as the neverending dream.

 

Some claimed that all the distant lands we seek
Are just expressions of a wish to understand the deep
Within ourselves. The truth that speaks so clearly from inside.
Once disidentified from wind and tide
We find that depth and surface form a whole.
And we are both of these combined inside our soul.

 

Whichever version and whichever view,
Whichever guiding star is up to you.
Whichever tale it be, it leaves us with a mission,
For every passage is but a transition.
A vision quest that leads us to the next endeavor.
My friend, it could go on like this, forever.

A Drop in an Ocean

Breathe in breathe out
Breathe in breathe out
Find out what you’re about,
Breathe in breathe out

You may feel like just a drop in an ocean
Yet what is an ocean but a multitude of drops

Breathe in breathe out
Breathe in breathe out
Find out what you’re about
As within so without

You may feel like just a drop in an ocean
Yet what is an ocean but a multitude of drops

Keep breathing, my friend
It’s only change it’s not the end
Keep breathing, my friend
It’s only change it’s not the end
