Lyrics

We Are One

I wrote “We Are One” in January 2016 after hearing Caroline Cory speak about the refugee crisis and how the old paradigm of separation is moving toward a new paradigm of unity and oneness.

A young mother cradles her child
As she waits to cross the border line
Seeking refuge, to find a new home
Far from her neighborhood war zone

Many people just look away                             

”Not in my back yard,” is what they say
That they’re not from here, they don’t belong     
But deep down we know, this feels wrong
For the cry for unity has begun

We are one – We are one       

We are one – We are one

We are one 

All of humanity is just like me                   
Unique expressions of divinity
Many colors, cultures, beliefs
A mosaic of diversity
And the cry for unity has begun

We are one – We are one       

We are one – We are one

We are one

One breath, one song
One truth, we all belong
One earth, we call home
One Source, who loves us all
One heart, one beat
One pulse, that sets us free
One light, shining so bright
One love, that guides us all
That guides us all

We are one – We are one       

We are one – We are one

We are one

One breath, one song
One truth, we all belong
One earth, we call home
One Source, who loves us all
One heart, one beat
One pulse, that sets us free
One light, shining so bright
One love, that guides us all
That guides us all

Walk Slowly

“Walk Slowly” is inspired by a poem by my friend, Nidhi Kaur, called “You Don’t Live for the End” in her book My Wedding With Truth. It invites you to slow down, expand your awareness and experience the beauty and love that is around us at all times.

Walk slowly, what’s the hurry?
Love’s within you
There’s no need to worry
Walk slowly, wipe away those tears
This love inside you
Leaves no room for fear

Walk slowly, walk slowly
Walk slowly, walk slowly

Walk slowly, look around
Beauty surrounds you
Heaven’s here, right now
Walk slowly, barefoot on the beach
The waves will smile
And kiss your feet

Walk slowly, walk slowly
Walk slowly, walk slowly

Watch the seagulls as they dip and dive
Soaring across the deep blue sky
Sunbeams cast spotlights on the sea
Sending their love down to you and me
Mmmmmm

Walk slowly, feel the calm
Truth lies within you
You’re where you belong
Walk slowly, as the ocean breeze
Wraps you in love
You’re safe and free

Walk slowly, walk slowly
Walk slowly, walk slowly
Walk slowly, walk slowly
Walk slowly

Watch the seagulls as they dip and dive
Soaring across the deep blue sky
Sunbeams cast spotlights on the sea
Sending their love down to you and me
Mmmmmm

The Black Crow Prophecy

The idea for this song came while I was running in the woods after seeing a crow, a divine oracle in Celtic mythology, and asking it “what’s my life purpose?”        

Black crow, o’ wise raven, perched high above me
You make your home in this old scrub oak tree
Whose branches twist and turn as they reach for the sun
Roots stretch beneath the ground upon which I run

The ground upon which I run, mmmmm

Black crow, o’ wise raven, staring down at me
Your bright piercing eye conveys a history  Stories of bygone years and stories yet to unfold
Of the story I’m in, what must I be told?Mmmmm, what must I be told?  mmmmm 

Tell me, your prophecy, what you see of life’s great mysteries
Tell me all about the new reality  
That saves humanity  
Tell me what I must know, to play my role, before I go  
Oh won’t you tell me, tell me, tell me, before I go 

Black crow, o’ wise raven, you caw to signal what lies ahead
Let me transform just like Morrigan did
And fly with you beyond the sky, so I can know
Answers to these questions that lie deep within my soul
Mmmmm, deep within my soul, mmmmm 

Tell me, your prophecy, what you see of life’s great mysteries
Tell me all about the new reality  
That saves humanity  
Tell me what I must know, to play my role, before I go  
Oh won’t you tell me, tell me, tell me, before I go 
Before I go, before I go, mmmmm

 Tell me, your prophecy, what you see of life’s great mysteries
Tell me all about the new reality  
That saves humanity  
Tell me what I must know, to play my role, before I go  
Oh won’t you tell me, tell me, tell me, before I go
Before I go, before I go

Before I go!

Time to Soar

The message in this song was inspired by friends Melanie Hatchell and Mary Ruth Quinn. It’s an invitation to break out of patterns that no longer serve you and pursue your dreams.

 

Why take the same road home
The one you always have?
Why keep that same old job
Where you’re tired, bored and sad?
Why stay in tonight
When you’d rather go out and dance?

That’s not what you’re here for
Your life can be so much more

I hope you soar, I hope you soar
I hope you soar, It’s time to soar

Why join in the suffering
Of what others may face?
Why feel responsible
For the choices that they make?
Why worry so much about
What people will think?

That’s not what you’re here for
Your life can be so much more

I hope you soar, I hope you soar
I hope you soar, it’s time to soar

Why not jump out of an airplane or better yet learn to fly?
Walk the Camino or hike Machu Picchu up to the sky?
Get lost in the moment, drop into your Soul’s heart?
Pursue your wildest dreams, all you have to do is start

Soar, Soar, Soar
It’s time to soar

I hope you soar, I hope you soar
I hope you soar, it’s time to soar

Soar, soar
Soar, soar

I Choose Love

Copyright 2019 Mary P. Gospe

The chorus for this song dropped in during a meditation. It’s a reminder to myself that I create my life experience and proactively can choose peace, joy and love in each moment.

In this moment, I get to choose
No one else is standing in my shoes
It’s up to me, who I want to be
What I think, how I feel, I create my reality

Right now I choose peace
I feel so calm, pure serenity
My body’s warm, my mind is still
And I know deep down inside that all is well

In this moment, I get to choose
No one else is standing in my shoes
It’s up to me, how I want to be
What I think, how I feel, I create my reality

Right now I choose joy
I’m serenaded by angelic voices
I feel a thrill, a vibrancy
Freedom to pursue my wildest dreams

In this moment, I get to choose
No one else is standing in my shoes
It’s up to me, how I want to be
What I think, how I feel, I create my reality

Right now I choose love
I’m filled with a brilliant light from above
It wraps around, helps me understand
There’s nothing I need to prove, I’m loved for who I am

In this moment, I get to choose
So I send you my peace, I send you my joy
I send you all my love,
and you too have a choice

Free To Be Me

Copyright 2019 Mary P. Gospe & David Vito Gregoli

From worry to trust, from fear to love
That’s the journey I wish to take
From doubt to belief, confusion to clarity
That’s the path I wish to make

From illusion to truth, my intuition’s proof
That’s the life I will embrace
From struggle to ease, hatred to peace
That’s the world I wish to create

I’m stepping into who I’m meant to be
My authentic self, no apologies
I’m shedding all that uncertainty
Now I’m free to be me, yeah I’m free to be me

From control to letting go, in the creative flow
Where there’s no time or space
From distracted to aligned, one with the Divine
Each moment filled with grace

I’m stepping into who I’m meant to be
My authentic self, no apologies
I’m shedding all that uncertainty
Now I’m free to be me, yeah I’m free to be me

Stripped down, naked, (so exposed)
Release the old ways (just let them go)
No longer trying to conform
That’s not what I’m here for
That’s not what I’m here for

I’m stepping into who I’m meant to be
My authentic self, living fearlessly
I’m shedding all that uncertainty
Now I’m free to be me
Yeah I’m free to be me
Yeah I’m free to be me
Yeah I’m free to be me

Pendulum

This song is about letting go of fear and shifting into a place of trust and love.

I feel its pulse beating, pendulum
Swinging slowly but steady, pendulum         
By now I should be ready
For the pandemonium
Now that the pendulum has begun

It feeds on emotion, pendulum
One moment elation, pendulum
The next, desperation           
From a story that’s been spun
This illusion of fear serves no one

So can we just be still for a while?
Float on calm waters?
Can we just relax for a while?
Give in to trust? Surrender to love?
Give in to trust? Surrender to love? 
Ahhhh

You say you are fine, pendulum
But I can read between the lines, pendulum   
So scared of scarcity           
Worried for what may come
You know you can’t control anyone, but yourself  

So can we just be still for a while?Float on calm waters?
Can we just relax for a while?
Give in to trust? Surrender to love?Give in to trust? Surrender to love? 

Surrender, surrender, surrender to love Surrender to love
Surrender, surrender, surrender to love Surrender to love
Oohhh, oohhh

Help me slow it down now, pendulum
Stop the oscillation, pendulum
Let it come to rest, in quiet equilibrium
Peaceful and calm, pendulum

Unity

I wrote this song the day of the January 2017 Women’s March as a tribute to women’s empowerment and to all of us (men, women & children) who work together to create a better world.

Unity, solidarity
Unity, solidarity

Women of this world
Walking hand in hand
Speaking out for justice
Bringing healing to our land 

Protecting our children
Loving our great Mother
Replacing fear and hatred
With compassion for the other

Unity, solidarity   
We stand together, we are one   
Unity, solidarity  
Working together, we are strong          

Breaking the glass ceiling
Being paid the same 
Starting our own businesses
Changing up the game 

Running for office
Turning out the vote
Becoming stronger leaders
Yeah! Unstoppable! 

Unity, solidarity   
We stand together, we are one 
Unity, solidarity  
Working together, we are strong          

Unity, solidarity   
Joining together, no more of the same     
Unity, solidarity 
Leading together, we’ll bring change             

We are one!
We are strong!

I still can’t believe we’re not further along 
Isn’t this a battle we’d already won? So come on!
Let’s sing along…

Unity, solidarity
Leading together, we’ll bring change
Unity, solidarity
Joining together, no more of the same 

Unity, solidarity   
We stand together, we are one   
Unity, solidarity
Working together, we are strong          

We are strong, we are strong
We are strong, we are strong!

Ride The Wave

This song refers to the Law of Attraction. It’s my reminder to let go of negative, stressful, low vibration energy and shift to love and joy.

I’m not gonna succumb to lies by the corporate greed machine
I’m not gonna succumb to hype by news anchors on TV
I’m not gonna succumb to guilt of religions made by men
I’m not gonna succumb to dread that the world is near its end

I’m gonna ride the wave of a higher frequency
I’m gonna rise above it to a higher vibration
Higher vibration, higher vibration

I’m not gonna succumb to stress of impossible deadlines
I’m not gonna succumb to scares from medical headlines
I’m not gonna succumb to the grip of anxiety and doubt
I’m not gonna succumb to fear that fear is what life’s about

I’m gonna ride the wave of a higher frequency
I’m gonna rise above it to a higher vibration
Higher vibration, higher vibration

I’m not gonna succumb to feeling drained by toxic energy
I’m not gonna succumb to worry about lack and scarcity
I’m not gonna succumb to being stuck in the same old routine
I’m not gonna succumb to blocks that interfere with my dreams

I’m gonna ride the wave of a higher frequency
I’m gonna rise above it to a higher vibration Ride the wave of a higher frequency
I’m gonna rise above it to a higher vibration

I’m gonna ride the wave of a higher frequency
I’m gonna rise above it to a higher vibration
Higher vibration, higher vibration

Let's Break Away

This song is dedicated to my husband, Mike, as an invitation to be spontaneous, break from the routine and go have fun. 

Let’s be spontaneous, just the two of us, turn off that screen
So much to do, so much to see places we’ve never been
Spontaneous, just the two of us, break from the routine           
It really doesn’t matter where we go, I’ll take it sight unseen

We can dance around a bonfire as sparks light up the sky
Run through the sprinklers when the soccer field is dry
Walk in the forest for the majesty of it all
Hike up a river, skinny dip in a waterfall 

Let’s break away, a little unplanned getaway           
Let’s break away, even just for the day             
Let’s break away, it’s time for a change   
Let’s break away            

Let’s be spontaneous, just the two of us, leave it all behind           
The feeling’s right, it’s so aligned, I can’t wait to unwind
We can go barefoot on the beach dodging waves along the shore
Skip rocks across a pond, bet you can’t beat my score!
Kayak at midnight with no one else around
Count shooting stars while lying on the ground             

Let’s break away, a little unplanned getaway           
Let’s break away, even just for the day             
Let’s break away, it’s time for a change   
Let’s break away  

I just want to spend time with you, out of reach
Like before the kids, in Big Sur, when we found that hidden beach

We can swing in a hammock between two redwood trees
Throw paint at a canvas, create a masterpiece
Bike along a country road, chasing dragonflies
You can take my breath away as our spirits improvise
        

Let’s break away, a little unplanned getaway           
Let’s break away, even just for the day             
Let’s break away, it’s time for a change   
Let’s break away         

We can dance around a bonfire as sparks light up the sky
Run through the sprinklers when the soccer field is dry
Walk in the forest for the majesty of it all
Hike up a river, skinny dip in a waterfall      

Let’s break away, a little unplanned getaway           
Let’s break away, even just for the day             
Let’s break away, it’s time for a change   
Let’s break away, a little unplanned getaway           
Let’s break away, even just for the day
Let’s break away, yeah             
It’s time for a change   
Let’s break away

Live From Your Heart

“Live From Your Heart” is inspired by Caroline Cory’s Creative Formula—using intention, desire, belief and surrender to manifest what you desire in your life.

Find that inner spark
Live from your heart

I used to wonder how to succeed
What’s the secret to reaching my dreams
What kind of life could I create?
Was it destiny or fate?

Now I’m learning to quiet my mind
Open my heart, hear the truth inside
Feel the guidance within
You too can trust your intuition

Today’s the day to start
Go out and make your mark
This is your time to shine
Fan that inner spark
Live from your heart

So make a wish that’s vivid and clear
Imagine that it’s already here
Feel how good it feels
Ask to make it real

Today’s the day to start
Go out and make your mark
This is your time to shine
Fan that inner spark
Live from your heart

The universe will always provide
You’ll receive what you desire
If you trust and if you believe
Relax and allow it to be

Today’s the day to start
Go out and make your mark
This is your time to shine
Fan that inner spark
Live from your heart
Live from your heart, live from your heart
Live from your heart, live from your heart
Live from your heart

All Is Well

This song is a lullaby to humanity. We are all here for a reason, we are loved beyond measure, and have unique gifts to share.

Lay your head down, let me hold you
All is well
Hear my heartbeat, feel the warmth here
All is well 

You are here for a reason
Mmmmm, and you’re not alone
You are guided and provided for     
Each and every day, each and every day

You are cherished, you are truly loved
All is well
You are beautiful, you have gifts to share
All is well

You are here to experience laughter, joy and love
Be yourself, trust in who you are
Each and every day, each and every day

Lay your head down, let me hold you
All is well
