Track Name: Loving Cup
Chorus:
I’m gonna drink this cup
Drink this loving cup and
I’m gonna tip it up
Tip this cup up.

I’m ready as I’ve never been
To slow my breath and to take in
All the world’s wonders all its kin
I start to see you.

And saying yes to every day
A heart of joy to light my way
And peace moves in and asks to stay
And I am moved to sing:

Chorus

How sweet to know that we are small
But still we’re woven in it all
And stretching back beyond recall
Life was moving.

We may cling to it but alas
Every breath, each blade of grass
Watch it rise and watch it pass,
And we are moved to sing:

Chorus
Track Name: Wake Up
Are you gonna wake up, you gonna wake up?
Are you gonna wake up, you gonna wake up?
You’re gonna stretch your heart to the sun
You’re gonna get up

Are you gonna reach out, you gonna reach out?
Are you gonna reach out, you gonna reach out?
You’re gonna open up your heart
You’re gonna give it out

The blues will hunt you like a snake in the grass
But if you’re watching you can just let em’ pass
Then peace will find you like sunshine in your day
It’s kind of lovely how it works that way

Whoever you meet, meet with an open heart
With kindness as your guide at the end of the day and the start
Shining the light that you are, that you are, that you are

When you wake up and you’re in love with the day
Nothing can shut you down or stand in your way
It’s like a beacon calling love to its light
So stretch your arms and let your heart take flight

So, are you gonna wake up, you gonna wake up?
Are you gonna wake up, gonna wake up?
Shining the light that you are, that you are, that you are
Track Name: Calling All the Kids to the Yard
Calling all the kids to the yard!
Come along it isn’t hard.
Put your busy legs to use.
Tie on your shoes! Then kick em’ loose!

We can dance this mess around
Climb up a tree, hang upside down
Or cut your neighbor’s weedy grass
Rake up the leaves, take out the trash!

Chorus:

The highs! The lows! Your head! Your toes!
Believe me, I propose, that you’re one of those
Who feels a beat, rising from the street
Gonna make a difference in this place!

Calling all the kids to the street!
Hands up with me, kick your feet
We’ll walk together hand in hand
And we’ll fix what’s broke, and we’ll heal the land

Starting in our own backyard
Whether it’s pocked, whether it’s marred
Plant a seed and watch it grow
Come on kids, here we go!

Chorus
Track Name: All the Pretty Horses
Hushy bye, don’t you cry
Go to sleep my little baby
When you awake, you’ll have cake
And all the pretty little horses

Saunter out, canter back!
Kick up your hooves and we’ll bring it on back
Sally out, saunter back!
Kick up your hooves and we’ll bring it on back
