Track Name: So Gazed Upon
Right here at the start
Making music, making art
Let it flow and let it go
Let magic do its part

Create these pieces send them out as offerings
To life and to light
Hold my seat and work until it’s alright, alright!

Sitting at my desk
Hands busy that’s the best
Caught up in the rhythm now
I don’t worry about the rest

Make these pieces send them out as offerings
To life and to light
Hold my seat and work until it’s alright, alright!

Oh, shine your light, shine your light on
Oh, shine your light on!
I feel the inspiration coming on
And oh, I love to be so gazed upon.

Been here all along
In the middle of a song
Sing my life alive now
I know that I belong

Creating pieces send them out as offerings
To life and to light
Slow my breath and work until it’s alright, alright!


TO AND FRO
Music: Seth Lorinczi
Lyrics and vocals: Julianna Bright
Guitar, bass, sampling, percussion: Seth Lorinczi

The sky is radiant blue and the sun is high
There go our winter blues, waving goodbye
We’re changing into ourselves like a butterfly
We’re heading out the door, waving goodbye

Don’t care where we go
Just know it’s to and it’s fro
Just know the wind will blow
Just know that I’m gonna grow

In all that’s good and green that’s where we make the scene
Cartwheeling through the grass like a cartwheeling machine
You bring the ball and I’ll, I’ll bring the game
Oh, I’m so glad we came

Don’t care where we go
Just know it’s to and it’s fro
Just know the wind will blow
Just know that I’m gonna grow

The sky is radiant blue and the sun is high
There go our winter blues…
And we become ourselves, ourselves, ourselves…
Track Name: To and Fro
The sky is radiant blue and the sun is high
There go our winter blues, waving goodbye
We’re changing into ourselves like a butterfly
We’re heading out the door, waving goodbye

Don’t care where we go
Just know it’s to and it’s fro
Just know the wind will blow
Just know that I’m gonna grow

In all that’s good and green that’s where we make the scene
Cartwheeling through the grass like a cartwheeling machine
You bring the ball and I’ll, I’ll bring the game
Oh, I’m so glad we came

Don’t care where we go
Just know it’s to and it’s fro
Just know the wind will blow
Just know that I’m gonna grow

The sky is radiant blue and the sun is high
There go our winter blues…
And we become ourselves, ourselves, ourselves…
Track Name: Bop-Bodiop!
Take this sweet feeling
Part it in two
Plenty for me
Plenty for you
How like the ocean
Stretching out far away
How could we hold it?
Where will we sail on it today?

Something’s brewing something deep inside my heart
And if it’s me then it’s the very best part
Nothing to hold or hide behind protection
I want to send it out in your direction.

And now we’re sailing
So swiftly and so free
And you are lovely you
And I am lovely me
The storms will find us
Yes, they’re part of it too
But we can weather storms
if we remember they’re just passing through

Chorus

Oh this love we couldn’t spend it
Like a well without a floor
What could ever shrink or end it
We are who we’ve waited for.
Track Name: Eyes on the Prize
I’m gonna keep my eyes on the prize
I’m gonna get, I’m gonna get it, I
Keep on working and giving
Letting the challenges teach me and making me wise

I set my heart on believing
I’m gonna get, I’m gonna get it, I
Love my life like the treasure it is
And I know that my loving is making me wise

Gonna keep on holding the line
Gonna rest assured that in time
My intentions will lead me to something
That’s mine, mine, mine
And fine, fine, fine, fine, fine

Now it feels like I’m closer every minute
I’m I’m gonna get, I’m gonna get it, I
Oh so right when I’m in it
Following cues, paying my dues, oh I

Now see the sky is the limit
I’m gonna get, I’m gonna get it, I
If this life is a lake better swim it
Jumping right in with courage to begin with my life

Gonna keep on holding the line
Gonna rest assured that in time
My intentions will lead me to something
That’s greater than all the pieces I’ve combined
Gonna keep believing that I
Have something worth giving a try
And worth giving away to creation
A holy vocation, a standing ovation, I

Oh, keep on believing

We’re gonna keep our eyes on the prize
We’re gonna get, we’re gonna get it
Gonna set our hearts on believing
Gonna keep on holding the line
Gonna love this life like the treasure it is
And we know that our loving is making us wise
And yes, we’re closer every minute
We’re gonna get, we’re gonna get it
Let’s keep on loving and giving
Knowing our loving and giving are making us wise
Setting us right toward the prize
