The Four Foundations

The Four Foundations

*

As gentle as the trickling stream,

as powerful as the sea.

The living waters flow

on through you and me.

*

As warm as a home fire burning,

as bright as a shining sun.

The inner flame it burns

alight in everyone.

*

As vast as the open sky,

as fierce as the howling wind.

Behold the breath of life

that bestows us with wings.

*

As strong as the mountain stands,

as abundant as the garden grows.

That’s sacred Earth beneath your feet,

let everybody know.

*

(chorus)

For these are the four foundations

which all life arises from.

These are the four foundations

that our house is built upon.

*

So may the clear water flow on,

flow on, flow on, flow all over me.

*

May the warm fire glow on,

glow on, glow on, glow inside of me.

*

May the fresh air blow on,

blow on, blow on, blow right in to me.

*

 May the abundant Earth grow on,

grow on, grow on, grow all over me.

*

(chorus)

For these are the four foundations

which all life arises from.

These are the four foundations

that our house is built upon.

Cry Baby

CRY BABY

*

I have a friend

weeps like a willow tree,

I don’t mind ’em weeping

it’s all right by me.

*

You can be a willow tree,

cry baby cry,

and I will be a river

for you to grow beside.

*

Cry on my shoulder,

cry all over me,

and I will take your salty tears

and wash them out to sea.

*

So cry baby cry,

till there’s no more tears to cry.

So cry baby cry,

till your tears run dry.

Thunder Enlightening

THUNDER ENLIGHTENING

*

Oh Holy Rolling Thunder, rumbling through the hills.

Ground shock, shake your will, give your heart a thrill.

*

Rattling your bones, and tickling your toes,

waking up your sleepy head, we got to go.

Oh the mountains are a moving, they must’ve heard the news,

saddle up the horses, we’re moving too.

*

Oh Holy Rolling Thunder, rumbling through the hills.

Ground shock, shake your will, give your heart a thrill.

*

The wind blows butterfly kisses brisk upon your cheek,

the earths drum beats steady with the rhythm of horses feet.

And our hearts lead the way to their home beside the sea,

emboldened by the promise of a salty remedy.

*

Oh Holy Rolling Thunder, rumbling through the hills.

Ground shock, shake your will, give your heart a thrill.

*

We cross fields of wild flowers in bloom,

and it makes you feel like blooming too.

The sky lights up with a crackle and boom,

and it makes you feel like booming too.

We ride on to the sea shore, us galloping loons,

and you feel like you are galloping too.

The Ocean’s turned to silver and it’s dancing with the moon,

and you feel like silver ocean too.

*

Oh Holy Rolling Thunder, rumbling through the hills.

Ground shock, shake your will, give your heart a thrill.
