Papaya Moon

Music and lyrics by Serah

Lyrics:

Taffa Dali, Jambo Sana…

The sounds of laughing and a far off tune
The soft waves beneath papaya moon
Rising with my thoughts, I’m doing my best
To sing a song that I can wear with my dress

I’m gonna dance all over the sands
My feet are moving, will you take my hands
You look at me, roses in my hair
Lift me up to the sky if you only dare

Taffa Dali, Jambo Sana

I was too long beneath the juniper tree
So tired and weary, I could barely see
How far we’d come and I can make my choice
and find a song that I can wear with my voice

Don’t want to think, not to worry at all…
The world was heavy as a cannon ball
Shot through the heart and you could see me fall
But I’ll be up again better than before

bridge

The sounds of laughter blowing in with the wind
Surf is rolling and its moving in
I hear the children making happy play
I’m gonna break, gonna break, gonna break away
Taffa Dali, Jambo Sana…..

The Singing Tree

Music & lyrics by Serah

Verse 1 O Serah, in the desert wind
they’ve heard your call
and they’ve just tuned in
They’re listening now
a little mystified
I think they’re getting it
and they’ve realized
Can you help me, Can you help me
Can you help me,

Verse 2 O Serah, there’s a loving sound
There’s a kindness
growing all around
The rescuers
are moving in
across the blue
and they’re listening
Can you help me, Can you help me
Can you help me

Chorus ‘Cause I’m captured
by the singing tree
and I’m captured
and I can’t get free
I am captured and I’ve got to
sing the song tonight

Verse 2 O Serah, there’s a loving sound
There’s a kindness
growing all around
The rescuers
are moving in
across the blue
and they’re listening
Can you help me, Can you help me
Can you help me

Chorus ‘Cause I’m captured
by the singing tree
and I’m captured
and I can’t get free
I am captured and I’ve got to
sing the song tonight

Baki Malieke ya mungu, tafadali, haraka,tafidali…Malieke ya Mungu…

French Blue

Music and lyrics by Serah

Verse 1 On the willows by the river, we hung our harps of gold
No one would listen to our song
Like the wind, we sang for all we’re worth
And cried bitter tears all night long

Ah………..
Ah………..
Ah………..

Chorus 1 Will they cry when we move our horizons
Understand that there’s something else to view
We sow seeds of music from a far away sky
With the tears of a love that is true…..
French blue

Ah……..
Ah……..
Ah……..

Verse 2 The iris takes her colour from early evening skies
And sways to the gentle river’s song
Listen to the wind, and sing for all you’re worth
The vision of the heavens won’t be long

Ah……..
Ah……..
Ah……..

Chorus 2 I let my hair fall down and wash your dusty feet
We have heard that there’s something else to view
We are sowing seeds of music, like flowers from the sky
With the tears of a love that is true — French blue

Ah……..
Ah……..
Ah……..

Last section Carry me over the fire-mountains dancing
Heavenly angels on white chargers prancing
Holding onto what’s true, when your’e blue…

Wedding Song

Music & lyrics by Serah

Verse 1 Keep a white rose under your pillow
Keep a candle by your bed
Sing for Gabriel, listen for his song
Today the two of you are wed

Verse 2 We’ll be there beside you in quiet joy
Stand by all that you will build
Day by day as rhythms come and go
May the music of Gabriel keep you filled
Chorus May the soft winds off the warm seas follow you
May your vision align with higher truth
May the mountains bow before you as you walk
May you build your castle on the rock

Verse 3 Our love for you will always abide
And your love will be an endless seed
Seed within itself, growing ever new
And the everpresent Love to meet your need

Chorus May the soft winds off the warm seas follow you
May your vision align with higher truth
May the mountains bow before you as you walk
May you build your castle on the rock

May the soft winds off the warm seas follow you
May your vision align with higher truth
May the mountains bow before you as you walk
May you build your castle on the rock

Kind Music

Music & lyrics by Serah

Verse 1A It’s just a gentle look
Glimpsed there in the eyes
Like some ancient memory
Stripped of disguise

Verse 1B Shadows of flowers
Dance on my walls
Moving in candlelight
Kind music calls.

Verse 1C I open my eyes again
Take my immortality
One moment to understand
We will be free

Chorus I I’m loving; I find my wings
How finally an answer sings
Shadows fade in the light
There are no more walls
Nothing can stop this love
Kind music calls…

Verse 2B Les ombres des fleurs
Dansent sur les murs
Dans la flame d’une bougi
Musique en coeur

Chorus II Like waking in the deep of night
Looking out to a sea of light
Couldn’t I just walk right out
How that path of moon calls
Us into the eyes of Love
O…., seeing it all
Kind music calls…
It’s just a gentle look
Seeing it all…

Papillon

Music & lyrics by Serah

Section 1A Well, it’s a strange wind and I’m
crawling thru this steep dark tunnel trail
And I’m crying and I’m bleeding and I’m afraid
I’m going to fail
And I’m wondering why I came here and
how it all went wrong
With all this fragile fluttering
I’m still following that song

Section 2A It’s the song that makes the ballerinas
dance
It’s the song that always calls us
back to France
It’s the song that pours the waves
across the sands
It’s the song that puts my heart
into your hands

Section 3A The quiet song holds you like a prayer
A ring of harmony surrounding you there
You felt the distant song, and you follow
Follow ‘til your weary soul falls
Fall into the light

Section 4A Fall into the Light
Fall into the Light
Fall into the Light

Section 1B Well, I’m reaching up and reaching for
what is pure and what is true
And I’m reaching for what is alive and bright
and lives in me and you
The moment gently lands and I
know when it is right
A butterfly in the hand and
I am resting in that light

Section 2B It’s the song that moves the stars
in ordered dance
It’s the song that always calls us
back to France
It’s the song the monarchs migrate
o’er the lands
It’s the song that puts my heart
into your hands

Section 3B The soft light holds you like a prayer
A ring of harmony surrounding you there
You felt the gentle song and you
follow; follow ‘til your weary soul
falls — fall into the light

Section 4B Fall into the Light
Fall into the Light
Fall into the Light

Refuge of the Song

Music & lyrics by Serah

Won’t you step back abit,
Let me take off this mask,
I’d really like to talk to you,
If you can hear me I ask.

Will you hear me at last?
I count the stars alone,
And hold a candle to see you,
But the shadow’s my own.

Maybe all the years were just a dream,
And all the tears were not what they seem.
All the many colors of love
Find their fullness in you.
You were always my rainbow beloved;
Is this something you knew?

Finding refuge in the secret place,
Here in my song you’ll always see your face;
See your face in the refuge of the song;
Find your place in a love that goes on and on…

Alone in my garden,
Hearing still the rhythm and rhyme;
The promise blooms before me;
She will come down in time…

Senegal Moon

Music & Lyrics by Serah

Mon sumela soray, yambulma fatay…..

Will he remember my song when I’m far away,
And sing with the words and the tune?
Will he think of the angels who dangle their skirts
From the curve of the Senegal moon?

They wait for him I told him before;
Is it too soon to understand?
Will he remember my dress that blew in the wind
When I’m in a far off land?

Will he take my song through the galaxies
As he travels the winds of Soul?
Will he feel my kiss and remember it well
And all of the stories I told?

Will he remember the days we walked in Dordogne,
When the river gave back her light?
When we slept in a castle from long ago
And birds sang through the heat of the night?

Strange light moves in my heart when I sing,
And soon the dust will be gone…
Will he remember my song when I’m far away
And remember when we walked in Dordogne?

How many times will we circle the sun
Till we’ve learned the great Design?
How many songs till the pain is gone
And music replaces time ?

Strange light moves in my heart when I sing,
And soon the dust will be gone,
Will he remember my song when I’m far away
And remember when we walked in Dordogne?

Grace

Music & Lyrics by Serah

Verse 1 As hard as you tried and
as long as you’ve lived;
It’s still the only way
The love that you give and
the truth you’ve lived ;
it’s still the only way…

Chorus 1 Your skies will clear as you
keep on walking;
Wipe away the tears and
let your love keep talking,
Let your love do the talking ;
it’s the light in you,it’s the light in you

Verse 2 It’ll never get tired and
you will never get old
If you listen to your love
It’s your high ideals
It’s your heart of gold
Now listen to the love, listen to the love

Chorus 2 It’s a sound you know
when angels call
The only way to go
when you don’t hear at all, you don’t hear at all
You learn to recognize
the angels in disguise
You learn to recognize
the angels in disguise

Verse 1 As hard as you tried and
as long as you’ve lived,
It’s still the only way
The love that you give and
the truth you’ve lived —
It’s still the only way

Chorus 1 Your skies will clear as you
keep on walking
Wipe away the tear and let
your love keep talking,
Llet your love do the talking—it’s the light in you
It’s the light in you.

Desert Woman in Paris

Music by Serah & Patrice Tison
Lyrics by Serah

Across a weeping candle and my guitar, a breeze from
Paris blows,
Tonight I ride the music and see where it goes

A woman in the desert riding alone hard and fast,
The bandits keep closing in and she tells them when they ask,

“Take me to my innocence its where I’ve always been;
Before we were born the music was our only friend”

Chorus:
(she says) Sorrow rides a fast horse
It follows close behind
Better let me move along
I cannot ride too slow(she says)
And makes a little sign
They nod and let me move on

They understand her meaning, they’ve felt the stormy blast
Of sorrow when it finds them and they don’t even ask

They let me ride on like Jeanne D’Arc and St. Cecile
My soul will rise again above the sorrow that I feel

The candle weeps little tears ; my soul will rise again
My sadness rides the music , but I sleep in St. Germain

Chorus:
(she says)Sorrow rides a fast horse
It follows close behind-
Better let me move along;
I cannot ride too slow(she says)
and makes a little sign.
They nod and let her ride on….

Joan of Arc (The Voice)

Music & lyrics by Serah

Section 1A I saw her in an old French painting,
Faces in the trees,
In a dress of white linen blowing,
Listening down on her knees.

Section 2A to the Voice – says:
“I need you, I need you, I need you”
and it says, “I love you, I love you, and I love you”
“And there’s no one on this earth
to be kept out of the light”
Let the curtain begin to rise;
We’ve been looking far too long

Section 3A I don’t wear a soldier’s uniform
as I sing this song tonight
I don’t have a voice of fire
but I bring a song of light
And I rode the path that she rode
when she didn’t have a choice
In a forest deep in France
Long ago when she heard the Voice

Section 1B Standing there looking at the painting;
I ride that trail too,
With the mission for Life and for Beauty,
I hear that voice come thru

Section 2B It says “I need you, I need you, and I need you”
It says “I love you, I love you, I love you”
“And there’s no one on this earth
to be kept out of the light”
Let the curtain begin to rise
We’ve been looking far too long

Section 3B I don’t wear a soldier’s uniform
As I sing this song tonight
But I hear the voice of fire
and I sing a song of light
It’s the voice as soft as amethyst
but it’s thunder in the heart
And it sings in every one of us
to rise and fill the part—

It says, “I need you and I need you and I need you
“I love you and I love you and I love you
And there’s no one on this
earth to be kept out of the light”
