lyrics

In the dark
I formed a tight grip on my heart
I had gotten used to false starts
had learned to hide from love

Now, sweet release
soft reminders to breathe deep
let the light in, tend the seeds
and soak my soul in love
root down and grow in love

And oh, I'd forgotten what it was
to let go, to let the walls come down
After all this time spent out there searching for my home
I've found it in the here and now

Rapt in awe
fireside in the backyard
search the source, sing to the stars
inside the mystery of love

Heart in hands
pilgrimage to desert sands
pray to the Gods, pray to the land
each step a deepening in trust
that all we are is enough

And oh, I'd forgotten what it was
to let go, to let the walls come down
After all this time spent out there searching for my home
I've found it in the here and now

Kneeling at the altar
candlelight like dawn
blessed breath flows through the body
whispering "all is life, is truth, is one"

Now
Just a glimpse
of every past life, present tense
heal the heart, drop the defense, offer it all to love
dive deep and fall in love

And oh, I'd forgotten what it was
to let go, to let the walls come down
After all this time spent out there searching for my home
Love's within me in the here and now
