Track Name: Wise Woman
Wise Woman ©Peggy van Zalm

Wise, wise, wise, wise woman say
when the four winds blow just let them blow your way
to take us to take us so far away
from the civilised world and it’s cynical worldly ways
Then perhaps you and I may begin again begin again
only completely completely begin again

Wise, wise woman’s way
is to settle the score, settle it all, settle it today
and let the struggle die, let the rise of tide yeah
draw you under swirling surrender so much to gain
Then perhaps you and I may begin again begin again
only completely completely begin again

ohhhhh

Wise woman say, hey what she say, what she say, what she say
take us won’t you take us so far away from the civilised world and its cynical worldly ways
said from the civilised world and its cynical worldly ways
from this civilised, civilised world
Track Name: Revival
REVIVAL © Peggy van Zalm

People, journey, daybreak, yearning
nature’s heartbeat
her rhythm in the street

It’s what we want, what we want, what we want
to understand these times

What we need, what we need, what we need,
it’s a natural remedy

Yeah Rhythm is life - Rhythm is soul
I say let’s get it right this time
Let love - let love, let love unfold

It’s what we want, what we want, what we want,
what we want to understand these times

What we need, what we need, what we need,
a natural remedy for survival

revival

One heart, one heart revival
one heart, one heart revival

come on people - revival!
people - revival!
one heart, one heart, one heart - revival…
Track Name: Phoenix
Phoenix © Peggy van Zalm

Phoenix loved the dragon way down south in a river city.
So regal in his glory so beautiful so lonely.
She called to him through the night,
“Come dance with me into the fire, the fire.”

Dragon’s realm had fallen into times of dark confusion.
Seemed nobody believed in him no nobody would listen.
But Phoenix she does rise
and with her comes new life, new life.

Oh Phoenix living in a velvet chrysalis dream with you.
Oh Phoenix - Living in a velvet chrysalis dream.

United in this celebration.
Following our destination.
United in this celebration.
Following our destination.

Phoenix and the dragon lived down south in a river city.
Side by side under star filled skies they pledged to love completely.
Together they do rise and dance all night
by the light and the fire.
The fire. The fire. The fire.
Track Name: Woman Child
Woman Child © Peggy van Zalm

She, that one, that desert child
She’s got something ancient in her eyes
and she touched down from out of town
Stretching her wings and her heart
and speaking out loud

No place can hold her not for long ah ha ahh

The sun and the moon and the stars they all come out for her
They’re satellites in the orbit of a natural wonder
No love can hold her, the living desert it sings to her

Woman child
staying free and wild
woman child, woman child

So you want to go with her she started a fire
but friend remember wilderness is her desire
and love can hold her
the living desert it sings for her
no place can hold her
the living desert like a spring for her

Woman child
staying free and wild
woman child, woman child
red dirt wanderer with a wide-eyed smile
woman child
Track Name: Cool Rain
Cool Rain © Peggy van Zalm

With goodbyes come new times and new horizons
And with these times no wasting time
Let bygones be bygones
I’m not saying I’m leaving without my heart
What I’m saying’s I’m not grieving for things that I have lost
Moving change
Shifting lanes and growing pains
I’m listening to feelings
Invisible language
But I’m not trusting blind
Though I don’t always know where I am
I’m finding me out again.

I’ll take this body
I’ll take this mind
This desire to be alive
Like a thunder storm in the summertime
Ah a cool rain is coming by

Black cockatoos in a blue mountain afternoon
Flying ‘cross the valley
In a ritual salute
My eyes stretch out over the land

Nothing can soothe me like mother natures hand

Now I know, I know exactly where I am
Walking on tightropes across these mountains

Ah a cool rain
Ah can always make me smile
Ah a cool rain
Ah a cool rain’s coming by
Track Name: Infatuation
Infatuation ©Peggy van Zalm

Running up that hill you got
trying to play you down
You got me jumping to conclusions don't you know that's right
You got me jumping to conclusions am I running dry?

Infatuation, misinterpretation, infatuation, misinterpretation

There are several million faces in my night
How do you expect to take me by surprise?
Let everything go tonight
Let everything run run run run run run run to me

Infatuation, misinterpretation, infatuation, misinterpretation

Running up that hill you got
trying to play you down
You got me jumping to conclusions don't you know that's right
You got me jumping to conclusions am I running dry?

Infatuation, misinterpretation, infatuation, misinterpretation
