He’d been standin’ on that same street corner, For what seemed like a thousand days. Couldn't quite remember just how he wound up there, Somethin’ that’s so hard to explain. The sign he holds tells a simple story, Of how he had fallen on hard times. And though he knows this could have happened to anybody, Still it fails to ease his mind, It’s never too late, for second chances, To learn new dances, adjust your circumstances. It’s never too late, for old patterns to break. Down that road a man came driving, A very important meeting to make. Sees a homeless beggar at the corner, And it’s more than he can take. Says to himself, “I've had to work for every penny, When will those bums realize?” Then he pulls up to the corner, He looks out and sees his own father’s eyes. It’s never too late, to start mendin’ fences. Droppin' old pretenses, lowering defenses. It’s never too late, to choose love over hate. Never too late, never too late. It’s never too late, for second chances, To learn new dances, adjust your circumstances. It’s never too late, to overthrow fate. Never too late, never too late, No it's never, ever too late, ooh, never too late.

Dance, dance, dance like nobody’s business, Forget about what the neighbors might say. No, no, no askin’ for permission, Everybody come on out and play. Make your move, you’re in the spotlight, Go on and do what you wanna do. Dream that dream now you’re feelin’ alright, Baby, it’s all in your point of view. The waiting is over, so ready or not, Dance, dance, dance, get up and dance, Dance, dance, dance, get up and dance. Time is short, tell me do you remember, All good people have come and gone? Can you find anything that is better, Than movin’ to the rhythm of a rock-n-roll song? Now the train is leavin' the station, it’s time to get on board, Dance, dance, dance, get up and dance, Dance, dance, dance, shut up and dance. Now listen to my tale of a humble pilgrim, For the sake of truth he leaves his home behind. On a mountaintop he finds a cave to sit in, And there he proceeds to purify his mind. In 20 years he comes back down, Strolls into the nearest town. His disciples ask him what he found, and this is what he says… You gotta dance, dance, dance, get up and dance, Dance, dance, dance, get up on and dance. Dance, dance, dance, shut up and dance, Dance, dance, dance, get up and dance.

We are an ocean, we are the sea, Storm clouds may gather, but there’s silence underneath. I flow in you and you in me, We are an ocean, we are the sea, We are an ocean we are the sea. Dark and dreary days before I met you, Stranded on a solitary shore. Waited so long for my rescue, Battered by the winds of time, Gentle now you ease my mind, On a wave of love so kind. We are an ocean, we are the sea, Sky above us, below a mystery. Currents pull us to our destiny. We are an ocean, we are the sea. Took so many years for you to find me, Watching the ships go sailing by. And just when I had put it all behind me, Came a flower bright and wise, Drifting to me on the tide, You invited me inside. From a dying dream you woke me, With the simple beauty of your smile. And now I can see why you told me, All the days are worthwhile, Every little moment. We are an ocean, we are the sea, Walls can't contain us on our odyssey. Bound together in love’s reverie, We are an ocean, we are the sea, We are an ocean, we are the sea. We are an ocean.

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, again. You gave us a new today, Moments to laugh and play, Too busy too notice and they're gone. Why do you take away, when here's where I want to stay? Soon comes the ending of our song. Can we be friends? No more pretending you're not there. Please take my hand, then I'll understand. Holding on to regrets, mistakes that we can't forget, Doing our best to right our wrongs. Why do we fight against all that you represent? Learning just to let go can take so long. Can we be friends? No more pretending you're not there. Please take my hand, then I'll understand. Why can't we be friends? No more pretending you're not there. Please take my hand, then I'll understand. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, again.

Every day brings its questions, who will we be, what will we do, And the answers that we choose can open any door. So take a good long look around you, and tell me, What comes into view? Open sky above you, a whole world to explore. We are the warriors of the flame, The chosen ones, in this sacred game, And the love that lives in our hearts can change the world. These are the days for celebration; this is the moment to be free, So let’s open up the floodgates, of peace within our time. Sing a song of jubilation; Dance the dance of unity, And remember to be grateful, for every taste of that new wine. We are the warriors of the flame, The chosen ones, in this sacred game, And the love that lives in our hearts can change the world. Breathe just breathe, Breathe just breathe, breathe just breathe. We are the warriors of the flame, The chosen ones, in this sacred game, And the love that lives in our hearts can change the world. We are the warriors of the flame, The chosen ones, in this sacred game, And the love that lives in our hearts can change the world.

Human 05:18
She made a big mistake today, didn’t see it comin’. There was so much she had to say, her words came runnin’, So fast she never realized until she saw the hurt in his eyes, No disguise. So the tears come streamin’ down, a river flowin’. Would she lose the love she’d found? No way of knowin’ If he would understand, the pain that she never planned, She’s on shiftin’ sand. She’s only human, flesh, blood, and bone, Only human, she’s not alone. Wanted to be a better man, to do the right thing. Didn't work out like he planned, the good he might bring, Seems to fall apart, lost in the dark, another lonely heart, Missed the mark. He’s only human, flesh, blood, and bone, Only human, he’s not alone. What if we weren't afraid to show our truest feelings? Just step outside and let them go and in the revealing, Maybe then we could finally find our way back home, Where we've always known, we’re not alone. We're only human, flesh, blood, and bone, Only human, we're not alone, We're not alone, only human, yeah human, We're only, only human.

Night after night in the comfort of our living rooms, We watch the world go by on a screen. The wrong and the right, happy and sad all come into view, The good and the bad and the in-between. All these images and stories seem solid, And the world we inhabit feel so real. Year after year following scripts that never change, A steady stream of lose or win. Playin' hide and seek, Do you wanna be found or stay in the game? But where do I end and you begin? No separation, no us against them. All people one nation, nothing left to defend. Our sisters and brothers have so many hands to lend, On the kindness of others, we can depend. The bigger they are the harder they fall or so they say, But fallin' down was never a sin. So if you're feelin' small remember that love can light your way, It all depends on the story you're in. The foundations of your truth begin to crumble, and the veil of certainty falls away. No separation, no us against them. All people one nation, nothing left to defend. Our sisters and brothers have so many hands to lend, On the kindness of others, we can depend. On the kindness of others, we can depend.

Holy and true, holy and true, No matter what you’re goin’ through, You are... Dark rolls in like thunder, but you've seen this movie before, Same old spell you’re fallin’ under, Goin’ round and round in that revolving door. Sure could use a soul vacation, a little room to breathe. Some time to remember the combination, That would set you free so you could see that you are... Holy and true, holy and true. No matter what you’re goin’ through, You are holy and true. It's a crazy situation to wake up so far from home. There’s gotta be an explanation, A good reason why you feel so alone. But everyone’s got their own demons, Thoughts we hold onto, secret fears. And when it comes time to meet them, All the clouds drift away and it's so clear that we are... Holy and true, holy and true. No matter what we say or do, We are... Holy and true, holy and true, Holy and true, holy and true. Holy and true, holy and true, Holy and true, holy and true, No matter what you’re goin’ through, You are holy and true.

May I be well, may I be happy, may I be peaceful and at ease. May I have courage, determination, And understanding for all I meet. May I be well. May you be well, may you be happy, may you be peaceful and at ease. May you have courage, determination, And understanding for all you meet. May you be well. And for my friends and teachers and my whole family, May they always meet with success and overcome their difficulties. May they be well, may they be happy, May they be peaceful and at ease. May they have courage, determination, And understanding for all they meet. May they be well. And for all living beings, especially my enemies, May we all be healthy and strong, and may we live in harmony. May we be well, may we be happy, may we be peaceful and at ease. May we have courage, determination, And understanding for all we meet. May we be well, may we be well, may we be well... Om mani padme hum

We are One 03:35
I met a man, he said to me, that he knew the way I could be free. I had to change, I had to believe, in his long list of rules and his history. And so I listened, to all his fine words, and I did my best to follow them. But I came to doubt, doubt in my head, and that’s when I found an answer within. That it’s alright to know what you know, To see for yourself, to go where you want to go, And be the person you are, 'cause you are part of everything, And we are one. I met a man, he said to me, Do you know the way, the way to be free? And so I listened to all of his pain, and that’s when we saw that we were the same. And it’s ok to give of yourself, To step out in faith and take your heart off the shelf, And know that you are divine, And this world is so fine to live in knowing that it’s alright. Yeah it's alright, to know what you know, To see for yourself, to go where you want to go, And be the person you are, 'cause you are part of everything, And we are one.

Stand up with me, I will stand up with you. Hand in hand we will see each other through. Stand straight and tall, I will catch you if you fall. Together we will find that love has conquered all. Remember where we started, see how far we have come. Sailing our ships across the water through rain, wind, and sun. Stand up with me, I will stand up with you. Hand in hand we will see each other through. Stand straight and tall, I will catch you if you fall. Together we will find that love has conquered all. Our journey far from over, so many lessons still to learn. Every day a chance for kindness, and when we give love, love returns, So stand up with me, I will stand up with you. Hand in hand we will see each other through. Stand straight and tall, I will catch you if you fall. Together we will find that love has conquered all. Stand up with me, I will stand up with you. Hand in hand we will see each other through. Stand straight and tall, I will catch you if you fall. Together we will find that love has conquered all. Love has conquered all.
