Love compels me to make music.

Love gives meaning to my life and life provides the meaning for my music.

Music reminds me I am not alone.

My hope is that my songs do the same for you.

Track Name: Dance
Lyrics by Mark Medley

I don't fear Armageddon, cuz I know it happens each day
The man that I am when I go to sleep, is not the same man who awakes
And it happens on a cellular level, it's happening to me right now
Parts of me die as new parts get born, look at how Shiva moves
Each night I sleep is a tiny death
And each breath I breathe could be my last breath
But I need my rest to continue this quest
Glad to find out that it's not a test....

Chorus: It's a dance

Somebody built up a fire, somebody struck up a drum
And God couldn't help but start dancing,
And that is where we all come from
I didn't understand it, until I overstood
The God that you get is the God you deserve
And you deserve to be happy, you deserve the best
You keep on running, but you need some rest
You keep competing, but it's not a test.....

Chorus
Track Name: Approach
I was floatin' in a tiny boat, all alone in the middle of the sea
Then I was blinded by a beautiful light and it was you and you were looking at me
At first it escaped my detection, but that light was my reflection
Upon further introspection the light came alive at our intersection
I knew right there and then that I'd have to surrender
Lyrics by Mark Medley

To my highest consciousness and not to the pretender
To approach the Goddess I must first clear a pathway
To become the sun I need her power in my rays

Chorus:
You are the Goddess, the Goddess is in you
A living temple that each day is made new
My worship's simple and your blessings come through
When every thought and everything that I do is a devotion to you

I was swimming in an ocean of bliss and that ocean swam in me
I was drinking from the fountain of youth in a cup of royalty
She was the nectar to balance the bitter
They brought her gifts, but their clothes never fit her
So she returned them after transforming their make-up
And then she whispered quietly for me to wake up
And that was how I found my head bowed at her feet
Before I rose to take my place next to her seat
Track Name: Kinfolk
Lyrics by Mark Medley

Walking through the forest to a chorus of the leaves
Nothing impossible before us as far as any eye can see
The dark horizon comes to life providing me some clarity
If the direction of the wind is blown' in our favor let's get goin'

Chorus:
I'll come home to my kinfolk, I'll come home to mine
I'll come home to my kinfolk, with a bottle of good communion wine
I'll come home to my kinfolk, I'll come home to mine
I'll come home to my kinfolk, hear me sending a message on down the line

Walked through the door into a record store and fell in love
And I been since then standing in it, it's been waking me up
And I love every single person on this beautiful Earth, even if I've never seen your face
And I've been waiting for a planet full of people like you and I'm ecstatically happy that the waiting is through

Chorus:
I'll come home to my kinfolk, I'll come home to mine
I'll come home to my kinfolk, with a bottle of good communion wine
I'll come home to my kinfolk, I'll come home to mine
I'll come home to my kinfolk, hear me sending a message on down the line
Track Name: After a Few Years
Lyrics by Mark and Vanice Medley

After a few years hiding from our fears we embraced them all
As we got to know them, they began to show us how to scale the wall
Since it never existed, we don't have to climb it and there's no way to fall
Puttin' one foot forward, feel the earth support it, why'd we ever stall

Chorus:
I'm puttin' everything I can be into our matrimony
I'm devoting every single cell of me
And I do it happily

We looked at the darkness and saw that it was dancing with its love, the light
They came together to hold each other, it never was a fight
As we looked closer they became familiar, it was you and I
And we kept dancing to the music's movement through each day and night

Chorus:
I'm puttin' everything I can be into our matrimony
I'm devoting every single cell of me
And I do it happily
Track Name: Standing
Lyrics by Mark Medley

I'm not falling
I'm standing
Right here in Love with you
My doorway, my entry, into eternity
