Lyrics for all the songs on AWAKENINGS CD:
Awakenings
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

Yesterday is no more
Tomorrow never comes
And every moment is now
Illusion never wins
Let go of what you know
Life is here to be found

(Chorus)
So breathe in, breathe in
Live in the moment, wide awake
Breathe in, breathe in
Be all that you are

See the sun, the sunrise
Let go of all doubt
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Awaken to the now

(Chorus)

Master Of Invention
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

Master of invention, what shall you create today
Devise your invention, an illusion you have made
Master of invention, how do you know
What is real, who told you so

What are you dreaming up now
What do you pretend to be
How can you live, when none of this is real
Master of invention, create your plan
And dream away, as only you can
Master of invention, how do you know
What should be, who told you so

Hear the storm screeching a discordant serenade
As you amuse yourself, with the lies that you have made
Master of invention, where's the key to your machine
It squeezes out intention and crushes everything

You're dreaming up a new plan and it sound just like you
Another dream, another scheme
You think your lies are true
Master of invention lives in a world in his own mind
Push another button and leave reality behind
Master of invention what shall you create today
Devise your invention, an illusion you have made

Sunrise
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

Now appearing within the sun
Worlds collide, and you find
Pieces of yourself
See the dawn of a new sunrise
It's like nothing before, reflecting what's within

(Chorus)
Painted landscapes and sacred paths cannot contain this beauty
Rivers flowing forevermore, through this never-ending journey

Overwhelming it is to me
Wonderful it is to be
In this world
Words are whispered upon the wind
Beckoning me deeper in, into this place

(Chorus)

See the dawn of a new sunrise
It's like nothing before
Reflecting what's within

Note To Self
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

On any given day, in any give place
The world awakes and plays a great charade
The wheels they turn 'round and 'round
Everywhere lies can be found

Here is a note to yourself, pay attention now
I won't say it again, no, no, no, no - listen up now

(Chorus)
If you want revenge, don't do it
If they make you made, just walk away
If you can't forget, just let it go
If you know the truth, then stand in what you know

A face without a name stands in a crowded place
Playing the game and running in the race
Wishing that he could dissapear
Longing for what isn't there

Here is a note to yourself, pay attention now
I won't say it again, no, no, no,no - listen up now

Stand in what you know
Just let go
Just walk away
Live for the day

(Chorus)

Bridge To All That Is
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

Take my hand and follow me
Open your eyes, come and see
A secret place for you and me
Just cross the bridge to all that is

(Chorus)
Meet me at the door to forever
We'll dance into the bright sunlight
Share secrets of eternity together
Watch the world unfold with delight
And we'll live
Life will never end
In all that is

Just reach out, Just reach in
Just let go and enter in
There's a whole new world for you and me
Just cross the bridge to all that is

(Chorus)

Picture Of A Dream
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

The world revolves while we evolve
From where we are to what we can be
The world's a stage where dreamers play
Hiding themselves in a masquerade
In the space between what is and what could be

(Chorus)
This is nothing but a still frame
A picture of a dream, a fairy tale it seems
Look and you will see the legend and the dream
When true life casts it light these shadows will subside

The mind creates what it wants
Then gives life to its own thoughts
The story grows and forms appear
From these thoughts held so near
But does it make it real, does it make it true

(Chorus)

Mask yourself with a lie and clothes yourself with a dream
When you awake you'll see, things are not as they seem

The world revolves while we evolve
From where we are to what we can be
The world's a stage where dreamers play
Hiding themselves in a masquerade
In the space between what is and what could be

Waiting For You
(Copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

Once there was a time when your hand held onto mine
And we'd drift away, was it real
Twice I let go, gave my heart to another soul
But it slipped away, was it real

Every road I travel leads to you
Here I am waiting, waiting for you

(Chorus)
All alone in a crowded room, but my heart knows you'll be here soon
And I'm waiting, yes, I'm waiting, for you
Don't keep me waiting, don't keep me waiting
Get here soon

Reach beyond a dream, just let go and awaken from your slumberland
For there is more here than you can see
Hear, I'm calling out, can you hear
It's the sound of me whispering your name
The only name that can be

Every road I travel leads to you
Here I am waiting, waiting for you

(Chorus)

~~~~~~~~

If You Take Me Away
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

You and I, our paths intertwine
Your silhouette is etched in my mind
How could it be, you could walk away
What would it take for you to see

(Chorus)
If you take me away, what would remain
If you take me away, everything will fade
If you take me away, there is nothing left
Lights no longer shine, the day turns into night
When you take me away

You and I, we're two of a kind
Your heart beats in time with mine
What is to be of our memories
Who will you choose to take my place

(Chorus)

Maybe (If We Just Let Go)
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

Same old story, same old line
Same reaction, time after time
Same old journey, same regrets
Maybe, just maybe if we can let....

Maybe we can live, maybe we can move ahead
Maybe we can love, if we just let go
Maybe we can give, maybe we can be more than this
Maybe we can reach, if we just let go

If we just let go, if we let go, just let go

Maybe we can sing, maybe we can do anything
Maybe we can dance, if we just let go
Maybe we can laugh, maybe we can enjoy this life
Maybe we can try, if we just let go

Maybe we can breathe, maybe we can see what happens
Maybe we can grow, if we just let go.

Linger
(copyright 2010 Linda Sylvester)

I love the way you linger, it takes my breath away
When you look into my eyes, the world just simply fades away
As you enwrap me in all that you are
I surrender, here's my heart

(Chorus)
For you're lovely and tender
And you make me feel complete
And I only can see you standing here with me
You are here, so glad you're here, with me.

I love the way you touch me, never let me go
Whisper secrets in my ear, that only you and I will know
And as we journey to places unknown
Now and forever, my heart has found it's home

(Chorus)

I love the way you linger, it takes my breath away...
