Lyrics

Soul Remembrance

Written By: Manaka

CHORUS:x2
Soul revival-
Soul survival-
Soul arrival-

We have now arrived
across the border line
of our hearts purification
the Earths healing station
How deep can we go
It's an ever lasting flow
to awaken our heart and soul
Soul Remembrance of how to live in love
No separation between any nation
(no fear of what's to come) x3

Spread your wings of faith
Flying through your deepest place
Arriving where you feel most safe
In the arms of divine grace

Divine Grace x3

CHORUS:x2
Soul revival-
Soul survival-
Soul arrival-

The time has come
to gather all our teachings
and keep on reachin
toward that brightest star
that reaveals who we are~
Now look around you
I pray we all see through
this illusion of confusion,
all illusion of confusion
this illusion,all confusion!
For we are angelic warriors
receiving information
in all colors, of the rainbow
x4 Riding this wave called life

CHORUS:x2
Soul revival-
Soul survival-
Soul arrival-

Soul revival,soul survival
soul arrival,soul revival
soul survival,soul arrival-
Soul Remembrance x4

CHORUS:x2

Chorus-Rockin to the rythem of thee ocean x4 Love....

Rebirth,rebirth cycles of thee Earth,
the rythem of our songs forever living on,
the constant lessons we all learn,
the harder they are the easier they may become.

and I send my roots deep in the Earth and
I say a prayer to the universe,
asking the most high
to guide I N I.....

(Chorus)

The rythem of your womb sets my heart in full bloom
embracing,praising....your cleansing love.
Wash away my pain and healing I will gain,
In your holy waters,purified I remain.

I stretch forth my arms in devotiion,
life force heals in a sacred motion.
Don't feed the fire,let go of your fear,
open your hearts x3and healing you will gain!!!
