Lyrics

Chasing Butterflies

Written By: Kate Page

Sun-kissed rays, and open-eyed
A heartbeat

Shifting clouds
The pink and warm horizon
The smell of the breeze

Chasing butterflies
through the tapestry of leaves

I’m caught in the still, the still
now I can breathe
and I believe that I can see
that I can be in this moment

in this moment of still

And I find myself searching
through the years
always I’ve felt so blind,
Now I’m floating softly, and
Slowly, now I’ve opened my mind

Dusk is falling, falling down upon the earth
Rich and heavy weights lift

Caught up by the moon, carried away
Spinning, turning, light years away

I’m caught in the still, the still
now I can breathe
and I believe that I can see
that I can be in this moment

in this moment of still

And I find myself searching
through the years
always I’ve felt so blind,
Now I’m floating softly, and
Slowly, now I’ve opened my mind

In and out I’m breathing
In and out believing
In and out I’m feeling strong

Closer

Written By: Kate Page

Fear can make you weak
Can stop you from speaking your mind
You wait, and hesitate
No longer are able to find your way

The day you break free
Is the day you find a way just to be closer to yourself

Love can make you strong
Can help you to feel that you’re among
Friends, the journey never ends, searching and breaking, re-making
You’re always changing and molding like clay, and

The day you break free
Is the day you find a way just to be closer to yourself

Getting Along

Written By: Kate Page

(beat boxing, body percussion and acting – shaking heads etc)

Trying to get there too fast and
thinking of other people last

Sometimes it’s hard to know just what’s right from wrong
But when we stop to think on it, what’s right is getting along
Sometimes we need to compromise, our vision we revise
We try to see what it is like, through another’s eyes

If you want to get along, have fun with all your mates
It takes tolerance, patience, forget about feeling hate
It’s a choice that we all have, trust, care and respect
Put these things together, it’s a chance to connect

We might all look different, but always in the end
We all need a good friend, on whom we can depend
When you have friends the whole world shines
Let’s do it together and we’ll all be fine

You’re feeling scared, (I’ll be there)
Too much to bear, (I’ll be there)
When you need some strength, (I’ll be there)
Someone on your wave-length, (I’ll be there)

I’m feeling scared, (we’ll be there)
Too much to bear, (we’ll be there)
When I need some strength, (we’ll be there)
Someone on my wave-length,(we’ll be there)

(Body percussion)

Just like a great society of bees in a hive,
If we work in unity, together we will thrive
Just like a winning sporting team, belief is a must
Living out their dreams, as belief turns to trust

We might all look different, but always in the end
We all need a good friend, on whom we can depend
When you have friends the whole world shines
Let’s do it together and we’ll all be fine
we’ll all be fine
