Lyrics

Ten Thousand Angels

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Welcome to this world, little baby girl
Welcome to this world of light and love
May you always find the sacred deep within you
Always feel connected to the stars above

We’re here to honor Christ within you
To recognize the gift of birth
My gift to you is but a vision
The way I see your life here on earth

You are surrounded by ten thousand angels
Ten thousand angels all around you
You are surrounded by ten thousand angels
Ten thousand angels’ love

There are people in this world who live in terror
I hear they are afraid to fly
Fear has clipped their wings and they feel grounded
But know this fear is just a lie

I pray that some day they will see the light
That they will put this fear behind them
And when I’m gone, I pray you’ll carry on
You’ll hold this vision and remind them

You are surrounded by ten thousand angels
Ten thousand angels all around you
You are surrounded by ten thousand angels
Ten thousand angels’ love

I’m An Angel

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

I was praying for a woman down in Memphis, Tennessee
Prayed and prayed for hours, she would not listen to me
Took a walk down Beale Street, wond’rin’ what else I could do
When outta this barroom I hear these sweet ol’ delta blues

Oh, I’m an angel
And I will not hang my head in shame
I’m an angel, baby
But I love the devil’s music just the same

Hangin’ out in heaven with my good friend Jesus Christ
He invites me out to dinner and I thought, ooh, that’s awful nice
He said, gimme your glass of water, I will turn it into wine
I said, you can have my water, I take whiskey every time

‘Cause I’m an angel
But I will not hang my head in shame, no
I’m an angel, baby
But I love the devil’s music just the same

Some people sell their soul to the devil and I think it’s rather odd
You can get anything you want, you just give it up to God
When I go to heaven I love to hear the angels sing
‘specially when Stevie Ray steps in and then bends them strings

Oh, I’m an angel
And I will not hang my head in shame
I’m an angel, baby
But I love the devil’s music just the same

Still Small Voice

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

There is a still small voice within me
It whispers things that always comfort me
I am the love
I am the peace within you
Follow me

There is a spirit deep within me
It always speaks of truth and harmony
We are the same
There is no separation
Follow me

There is a universe within me
It tells me things no one would dare to say
I am the life
I am the resurrection
Follow me
Follow me
Follow me
I am the way

God Knows Why

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Everything I see today
Will someday die and fade away
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

I feel such peace when I let the sand
Drift through the fingers of my empty hand
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

These words can’t explain the beauty of emptiness
Ground of all being
Essence of Mind
From emptiness come all things made manifest
From death to the living
From life we must die

I look back on this empty page
The thoughts come from beyond this brain
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

Thought becomes word
Word becomes being
All things must change
All matter must die
Then thought comes to me from all that I’m seeing
Mirror to mirror
Reflecting through time

I shout my truth into the sky
The Universe says Yes! every time
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

Everything I see today . . .
. . . will someday die and fade away

Moving On

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

All there is
And all there ever was
And all that there may be
Is love’s intention
God’s invention
And it keeps on moving on

All I am
And all I ever was
And all that I may be
Is a grander vision
Free in my decision
As I keep on moving on
To be

Everything is moving somewhere
Somewhere it would rather be
As this universe keeps dancing
Moving on forever
Can’t you see

That all you are
And all you ever were
And all that you may be
Is love evolving
God resolving all that ever was
All that there may be
In this eternal now
This creative power
Through this life of ours
Move on in your creation
Be
Just be

Falling

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Birds circling in the sky
Floating in their freedom
How do they get so high?
Letting go, they are falling
Letting go of everything
They’re given wings
And fly

Love circling in the air
I try to hold on to it
But I get nowhere
I let go and I am falling
Letting go, it scares me so
I can’t let go
And fly

I lived my life by some opinion
Of what others thought a life should be
Then I realized my self-dominion
And from this higher ground, I am free

Love circling in the air
I am falling into love
Love and I are falling everywhere
And to you, I am calling
Take my hand and let things go
Then release my hand, now let it all go
And fly

The Promised Land

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Sun peaks through my window
Morning greets the walls and floor
My eyes barely open
I smile as I hear my lover snore
And I gaze upon the bureau
Where the pictures of our children’s children stand
God has kept the promise
As we wander through
This promised land

Mornings at the lake
Where the turtles bask
And the heron fly
Laughing, singing in the car
Oh, you could never harmonize
And the things that seem most special
Are the things we’d never planned
God has kept the promise
As we wander through
This promised land

We had made a promise
Until death do us part
Oh, but this love lasts forever
Forever I will love you
Body, mind and heart

And the things that seem most special
Are the things we’d never planned
God has kept the promise
As we wander through
This promised land

This Moment

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

This moment
Shining inside me
Living in Spirit
Safe in God
This moment
Riding inside me
Blessed by Spirit
Blessed by God

I get the feeling this goes on forever
Just one moment at a time
Watching these miracles happen all around me
Miracles come, miracles go by
In this moment

This moment
Shining inside me
Living in Spirit
Safe in God
This moment
Riding inside me
Blessed by Spirit
Blessed by God

I used to live my life like a roller coaster
Sometimes up and sometimes down
Now I wake up, live my life in God time
Living this life, this moment, now

The past was just my ‘magination
The future never very clear
Now everything comes to me
Whatever I want to be
In this moment here
So peaceful
Abundant
Living in Spirit
Blessed by God

I get the feeling this goes on forever
Just one moment at a time
Watching these miracles happen all around me
Miracles come, miracles go by
In this moment

Be Still My Heart

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

This moment comes
This moment goes
I am awareness, this one who knows
Be still my heart
Be still my body
Be still my mind

I sit in stillness
My mind at rest
I feel such beauty deep inside my breast
Be still my heart
Be still my body
Be still my mind

Beyond all time
Beyond all space
Beyond all care
There’s a good that has no opposite
I’ll meet you there

And when I leave
This mortal plane
I’ll be coming home again
Be still my heart
Be still my body
Be still my mind

Wind and Water

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Sun and moon
Earth and sky
You and I
Wind and water
Wood and stone
Blood and bone
We share one life
With all this other

Sun and moon
Earth and sky
You and I
Wind and water
Sacred birth of universal
Space and time
Our sons, our daughters
Life

Now I bow my head
Now I close my eyes
Feel this moment rise
Oh, we are blessed
For we are God’s beloved consciousness

Sun and moon
Earth and sky
You and I
Wind and water
To and fro
Ebb and flow
This movement brings
Such perfect order

Sun and moon
Earth and sky
You and I
Wind and water
Wood and stone
Blood and bone
We share one life
With all this other
Love

Winds of Change

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Something’s happening
I can feel it
Storm is moving in
Most will run and hide
But this is where it all begins
Love as lightning
Clouds of compassion
Whirl within my mind
I think I’ll take the chance
Leap and leave this fear behind

Now and then I get this feeling
That nothing’s ever gonna be the same
So I reach inside my heart, my mind
And I cast theses seeds of love into the winds of change

Something’s happening
All around us
We seem to understand
That we can change the world
By offering a helping hand
Thoughts of love
An act of kindness
Honoring the light within
Seeing God in everything
This is where it all begins

Now and then I get this feeling
That nothing’s ever gonna be the same
So I reach inside my heart, my mind
And I cast theses seeds of love into the winds of change

And the law of love will say
That when you give this love away
It all comes back to you

Something’s happening
I can feel it
Sun comes shining through
To change comes down to me
To save the world, it’s up to you

Now and then I get this feeling
That nothing’s ever gonna be the same
So I reach inside my heart, my mind
And I cast theses seeds of love into the winds of change

This Life

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

My boy and I were driving
We were headed for the store
At nine years old he asks to drive
At forty I say sure

So he scootches in between my legs
And we laugh until we squeal
As I step on the gas pedal
And my son takes the wheel

And I let go of my life
This isn’t my life anymore
Say hello to this life
This life belongs to something more

My girl goes off to college
And like most kids in kind
She must have changed her major
About a million times
But she must have had to muster
All the courage of her life
To call and say she changed again
She’s having a baby
Becoming a wife

And I let go of my life
This isn’t my life anymore
Say hello to this life
This life belongs to something more

Particles dancing round in space
Careening, colliding, both living and dying
Shiva come dance around the place
Destroying, creating, as I contemplate
Children, laughter on their face
Where do they come from?
Where do they go?
As I contemplate
I really don’t know
I don’t have to know

Time tumbling by
Time tumbling by

My children all around me
I lie there, I am very old
My oldest one clutching my hand
Crying, Papa, don’t you go
But I let go

And I let go of my life
This isn’t my life anymore
Say hello to this life
This life belongs to something more
