about

the winds of canaan whisper secrets into our hearts. they dance us together, and apart again.

mother mountain calls us home, and we answer, spiralling in from the ends of the earth.

we find our tribe in that promised land— the land of love and letting go, the land of mystic forest and stone,
the land of music, magic and destiny.

there we sing our wings alive to the beat of grandfather drum, remembering that ancient dream that connects us all, the dream that bonds our myriad colours of stained glass into one brilliant mosaic,
the dream that brings us home to canaan.

Track Name: End and Back
i'm dreaming of your pretty face, i'm dreaming of your smile,
dreaming of those things your were to me when we went wild,
i'm dreaming of those lazy days that we walked upon the shore,
and i'm dreaming of the way you said you'd love me evermore

but evermore don't mean that i'll be ever-by your side,
evermore is ebb and flow and the changing of the tides,
and everything you ever were to me, you always are,
no matter what will come and go, i'll love you near and far

and i will love you
till the end of days
yes i will love you
till the sun, it fades
and i will love you, forevermore
yes i will love you
in calm and storm


so pretty baby, little darlin', tell me once again
just how long you're going away, and when we'll meet again,
until that day, i'll dream away through seven months of snow,
and where it is the future lies, only time really knows

and i will love you
till my heart breaks
yes i will love you
till the whole earth shakes
and i will love you even after that
yes i will love,
to the end and back
Track Name: Saturn
i met me a woman, lord, on a rambin' road,
she was gone before the sun, before this song was wrote
on a ramblin' road

and i'm heading down the valley now,
gonna save my soul,
sit beside the waterside, listen to it roll
gonna save my soul

and i walk along that mountainside
as far as i can go
tell my ma and tell my pa, i won't be gone for long,
as far as i can go

now river run
and river roll
the river is my god to the rhythm in my soul

i heard a voice through the pouring rain,
calling me to roam,
i took one step in her direction, got lost in the fog
calling me to roam

and i looked into your eyes again,
the wind began to blow,
a full moon shone on a dusty poem,
there was fire in my bones,
a wind began to blow

now river run
and river roll
the river is my god to the rhythm in my soul

to be without want,
but still wanting to be
it's alright to live your life free

be without want
but still want it to be
live your life and live it free

river run
and river roll
the river is my god to the rhythm in my soul
Track Name: Snow
ooooohhhh oooohhh ooohhhh
oooohhhh ooohhhh ooooohh

oooohhhh ooooohh ooooohh
oooohhh ooooooohhh ooooohhhhh
Track Name: Winter Into Eternity
i left my home ten moons ago, just following my fate,
i told you, baby, i'd be back
and i walked alone in the wind and snow,
my hands and feet been cold
the night's been getting in long

and though i told you, someday i would return
i never could be sure,
well i stepped into the everflow and i took those steps alone,
a fearless wind did blow

well, i had to leave those loving arms to find myself again,
i had to walk on my own path,
so many days of wind and rain across oceans, hills, and plains,
there's one more mountain pass

and though my bones shakes, and my legs ache,
i've got to stay strong
the path is long, the night is dark, but i still feel that love,
and that's what keeps me going

and i wonder
when i'll see the sun rise,
and i wonder
when i'll see your eyes

i feel it as my bones shake
and i feel it as my mind breaks
i feel it as the seasons take their toll
i feel it in my soul
i feel it in that snow
and i feel it in the sun as it shines on my face

it's shining on my face
and i'm on my way
and i'll be back someday

as i walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
the moon lights my way,
and as i walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
i sing out your name

i sing out your name

can't hold back any longer,
i know it's not much further to your door,
let the world fall off my shoulder
and i'm coming home much stronger than before,

and i'm coming home today
Track Name: Canaan Wind
deep namaste
it's time to go my way, beloved one
pouring from my wild eyes
bursting from my lion's heart
i give my truth
i'm letting go

blow, canaan wind
whisper to me of freedom come
shiver my skin, sun sets again
this time it's true
mother mountain, carry me until the sky turns blue again

ooooh marama
your fullness brings this circle round
round to its end - a new beginning
my love, my love will always stay
but i won't hold this wondering, this pain
i give my truth
i'm letting go

blow canaan wind
whisper to me of freedom come
shiver my skin
sun sets again, this time it's true
mother mountain, carry me
oh mother mountain, carry me, oh carry me on home

home, home to canaan...

blow, blow, blow on canaan wind...

carry me home, carry me home...

medicine chest, rose petal vest, protect my heart
grandfather drum, dance these weary shoulders into wings

blow, canaan wind
whisper to me of freedom come
shiver my skin
sun sets again
this time it's true
mother mountain, carry me on
home, home, home to canaan, home.
Track Name: Wind and Waves
even the moon shines through my ceiling,
and all that i know is only a feeling,
i open my mind up to let the cool breeze in,
and i'm closing my eyes now to let it all sink in

let it all sink in

know it
feel it
let it go
receive it

receive it now

in the wind and waves, the fire and flame,
everything crumbles but somehow remains,
our bodies fall,
blood, bone and all
but we rise up as mountains
and rise up as songs

let it go
let it go
you cannot hold on to what you can't control
and you cannot hold on to what must come and go
you'll go back into the ocean,
back into the ever flow
back into the ocean
back into the ever flow

your flesh and bone, flesh and bone
goes back into the forest,
back into the sand and stone,
back into the forest,
back into the earth below

below


across timeless time, to the other shore
these tears and this song
will be the paddles for your boat
so you may become the wind and the waves
so you may become
the fire and the flame
Track Name: Boundless Love
my heart is open
no longer holding on
the world is calling
and i know i'll run
but my heart's still burning wild for you
i miss you with my all
distant love, so beautiful,
the ocean knows our song

boundless love
across that sea
the calmest storm
and the deepest dream
i call you love
across that sea
boundless love
eternally

hear me calling you now
across this giant sea
distant love, most beautiful,
all these memories that i keep,
for a while i must wonder
across these distant lands,
bathed in wonder, someday, i know
i'll return to you again

it's true
it's you

boundless love
across that sea
the calmest storm
and the deepest dream
i call you, love
across that sea
now hold me long, into the dream

boundless love
now i see
the calmest storm
and the deepest dream
i call you, love
across that sea
boundless love
eternally

boundless love

Track Name: Sunrise
watch the sun rise up
the sun rise up

rise up up up up up

see how the sun does rise
see how the sun does rise
and i'll sing you these lullabyes
to bring you the new sun rise

rise up

and even though the rain may fall
the sun will rise up

we will rise up

and when the rain falls
upon your pillow
to find you sleeping
and kiss your dreams
and when the rain falls
in the morning
may it land softly
upon your fields
to bless you always
through all your years

so you may stay
forever young

to watch the sun rise up

and even though the rain may fall
the sun will rise up
and you are always beautiful
and always loved

yes you are always beautiful
and always loved

and in the morning
the world beginning
your eyes will open
and you will see
gentle sunlight
beyond your window
landing softly
upon your fields
to bless you always
through all your years

so you may stay
forever young

because we're rising
rising on up
greetin' that day

greetin' that day

thank you for this day
thank you for this life
