Prem Rawat's Major Band: One Foundation

From its creation in 1971, the Divine Light Mission had an important role for Prem Rawat's followers who are musicians. This role continued long after the organisation changed its name in the early 1980s. Music is an important tool for reinforcing emotion, and to a large extent both mirrors and sets the actual tone of Prem Rawat's followers' emotions. It is an important indicator of beliefs in the group and it's evolution reveals much that is not available from examination of the group's other publicly available material.

It especially shows the extent of the worship of and devotion to Rawat as a divine figure and exposes the current Élan Vital revisionist history that Rawat attempted to remove the beliefs in his divinity as well as the Indian trappings of Divine Light mission in the 1970's. Even a cursory examination of the "Court Of Love" tape by "the Holy Jesters" SLT 018 released in early 1982 by Elan Communications shows that Indian style devotion was being openly promoted in the organisations even as the renaming of Divine Light Mission as Elan Vital, was in progress. The lyrics (as underlined below), demonstrate how music within the cult setting reinforces the extreme personality worship that is part of Rawat's "teachings".

A fresh faced Ross Hannaford before the years of following Prem Rawat had taken their tollDuring the late 1970's and early 1980's the Australian band "One Foundation" was the mainstay of Prem Rawat's festivals and DLM released quite a few audio tapes of their songs and some of their dance music is available on OneTube. One Foundation was made up of Kim Field, girl singer and major songwriter, Lindsay Field, her then husband, who has been a longtime backup singer for John Farnham, Australia's most popular singer. Geoff Bridgeford who became Kim Field's partner, drummer and prolific song-writer had been the drummer for the BeeGees and a major force in Blue Aquarius, Prem Rawat's brother's band. Joe Creighton, bass player, has had a very successful musical career in Australia since leaving the group and Ross Hannaford, lead guitar virtuoso and former member of one of Australia's all-time most successful bands, Daddy Cool. At least one of the members, Joe Creighton, now believes he was sucked in hook line and sinker to a great deal of bullshit and detests the principles that were operating in Divine Light Mission. Another "apostate", Michael McDonald, wrote the lyrics for the One Foundation song "Surdas The Gardener".

Kim O'Leary, a member of the group and her former husband Lindsay Field and her partner Geoff Bridgeford, have been the major songwriters among Rawat's devotees. Her songs have had a significant, positive impact on the success of Rawat's career since the mid-1970's. They are nearly always strongly emotional ballads espousing extreme views of devotion and gratitude to Rawat ("Maharaji" or Great King as he calls himself) and a complete reliance on his power and grace. They are songs that Rawat's followers have heard for decades and can induce a deep trance state in them quickly and easily.

I just want to dance with you & You are my everything: Due to copyright restrictions, these free downloads of two 40 year old songs that were never released except in the confines of the Rawatism cult have been removed. Prem Rawat made tens of millions of dollars from the emotions these songs raised in the hearts of his followers but the songwriters have never received any reasonable recompense.

A friend taped some of the music played at the Holi festival in 1980, from the audience, and the sound is not as bad as one might expect.

In 1987 Prem Rawat began to reinvigorate his moribund organisation with the "Rejoice" programs and 2 years later this "greatest hits" compilation was released.

This compilation seems to have been deliberately chosen to include only songs with lyrics that are general without specific words of worship of Prem Rawat as the divine Guru Maharaj Ji, the Lord of the Universe and Revealer of the Knowledge of God. Maybe that is why there are only 3 songs written by Kim O'Leary the most prolific and overtly devotional of Divine Light Mission and Elan Vital songwriters.

ONLY ONE LOVE

Surdas the Gardener



To Download the song 'Surdas the Gardener', Right Mouse Button Click Here and Select Save Target As …

White fingers made of frost reach across the lake
One lotus blooms alone just for the Master's sake
Surdas the gardener, his mind concerned with gold
Plucks the sacred flower and his life is bought and sold

In the palace and the marketplace the word has gone around
The Master of the Universe has flown into town
The merchants and the king raise their bidding by the hour
As they argue with Surdas for the purchase of that flower

What will you give for a flower that grows untouched by death
What will you give for the lotus that blossoms within your breath

I'll give 1,000 coins to lay it at the Master's feet
No, I'll give 2,000 coins to make my dreams complete
Don't you see Surdas what the Master means to me
His eyes they shine like crystal stars reflected on the sea

Surdas the gardener, he cannot understand
The meaning of the merchandise he holds within his hand
But if the king should offer so much wealth
How much would the Master pay to buy the plant himself

What will you give for a flower that grows untouched by death
What will you give for the lotus that blossoms within your breath

He comes before the Master, greets him with a smile
Who asks him what his wish is, will he stay a while
The gardener's heart bursts out inot the Master's hand
The priceless flower quite forgotten falls into the sand

I want nothing Lord he cries between his joyful tears
I've been searching for your garden many painful years
The fruit that grows within your eyes is from the tree of life
Just one taste of that has swept away my night

What will you give for a flower that grows untouched by death
What will you give for the lotus that blossoms within your breath


Gathering Up

Everybody's searching for true love
To satisfy their lives
Nobody but You could ever show us the answer
Well it's a good friend who can help you in those times of strife
But it's the best friend who can show you the purpose of your life

chorus:
Well it's the gathering up of the children of love
With the return of the father
Maharaji You can take us back where trouble will lead us no further
Take us home lead us through the world around that's burning
Nobody else can show us where to go

Well I don't have a real home in this whole world
Except within Your heart
A resting place where I can discover my freedom
Well it's a long hard road you walk upon when you don't know where to go
And it's a sweet revelation when you meet the One Who's come to take you home

chorus

And it's a sweet revelation when you meet the One Who's come to take you home


Soul Power

Too many people are living in this world
Lost in an illusion
So much confusion
The leaders have all had their day
Up to us to have a say

Cause He's got the power to make this world change
Soul power, He's got the power to make you move, soul power
Gonna teach you how to groove
It's the power of loving

So many changes are brought into this time and situation
(Words indecipherable on old tape)
As I look around me
I take in the scene
But it seems just like a movie
Projected on a screen

Everyday people not too much we can do
We can just love one another
Just try to be true
Cause He's got the power to make this world change
But we've got to take direction
Together we can be so strong
It won't take too long

He's got the power to set you free
Let you be what you wanna be


You Saved Me

Now I see
What you have planned for me
It was more then I hoped
It was more, it was more then I dreamed
I don't know, I don't know how O Lord how this feeling grows
But I wanna spend my life with you with you
Because you've saved me from a life of bad deals
You gave me more than I would ever need
You took me with your sweet harmony
I'm free I'm free from all misery

Repeat


What You Know

Well if your feet get sore and you move so slow that you can't go very far
If you want to move faster now you've gotta get yourself an automobile car
If you're weary and you're worn out and you're tired of feeling low
Boy you better get out of the rut or else you'll always gonna move real slow

But if you want to fight then you've got to fight
And if you want to war then that's your right
But when you try a litle love and litle bit of sight
Try to get down to what we know is right

Some time I know that Your love is gonna take my burdens away
Take the key open up my heart and break the hinges throw the door away

I think sometimes to myself so much that I don't know what to do
It's maybe better not to think so much and just let that feeling come through

Lord You give me love and You give me light
You show me a little day in the middle of the night
Show me how I gotta put up a fight
Got to get down to what I know is right

A spider said to a centipede as he was walking through the room
Which one of your one hundred legs when you walk do you put first
Centipede he thought for a while until his mind was going wild
Mr Spider you make me think about what comes so naturally

If I gotta think then I can't walk
Well won't you try to drink when you're trying to talk
Think I've just gotta do it on my mind
Got to down to what I know is right


Without Your Love

Where would I be?
And how could I see?
I'd be an ocean without water
A flower without sun
A poet without feeling
A singer without a song

Yeah, where would I be?
And how could I see?
I'd be a journey without meaning
A story without an end
A heart that's always broken
A man without a friend

Where would I be?
And how could I see?
Without your love
Without your love
Without your love
Without your love


Wind Of Grace

Some people think that I've gone crazy Some people say I've lost my mind
But what they're seeing they don't understand
Cause I know You're real, Your love is fine

Some people say I've grown too distant
I really see I've got no choice
Cause every time I turn to listen
I only hear Your golden voice

I'm just a sailor on Your ocean of mercy
The wind of grace is in my sail
Without Your love my heart grows thirsty
And with Your love I cannot fail

I'm just a traveller on Your ocean
To a vision on the other shore
I watch the star of bright devotion
I love the land I'm sailing for

Some people feel I've been led astray
Been ordered from above
They even think I'll finally turn away
But where I turn I find Your love


Only One Love

Inside out and all around,
You never let your true lovers down
To us you're giving
Life we are living
No wonder we're singing
The praises of the Lord

Ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To stop your love from growing
To stop this world from knowing
The feeling that's flowing
From within your heart.

Oh Maharaji
What can I say?
I just really love you
You've shown me true love's ways
Oh Maharaji
What can I do?
I feel so helpless
I just need to be with you
My whole life through

Cause you've shown me
That there's only one love
Only one life
Only one lesson to learn
Live it in love
Live it in peace
Live it in harmony
You've shown me
That there's only one life
Only one Love
Only one Lord

Captured here in time and space
Where would I be without Your Grace
I'm feeling and finding
Your love's so shining
More than that it's blinding
Reminding who we are

Oh Maharaji
What can I say
I just really love you


repeat


Weeping In My Joy

It feels like I've been waiting
For this moment to arrive
Through all my pain and heartache
I'm still here and I've survived

Like a willow I am standing
My roots suffering in the ground
Weeping in my joy
Weeping in my joy
That You are still around

It takes me back oh takes me back
To when I was a little child
I never knew what happiness
I was running wild


There's a feeling coming over me
Such a feeling
A very, very deep part of me
Mighty river and the great ocean too
Could never wash away
The love that I feel for You


You Are My Perfect Master

Whenever I need your love
You're there to satisfy me
Whenever I feel alone
You're there to walk beside me
Whenever my illusions shatter
Your love will always guide me
Your grace is like an endlesss wind
Blows away my troubles
Giving me the strength to carry on
Chorus:
You are my Perfect Master, perfect lover too
The answer to my every question always comes from you
You are the giver and the keeper of my soul

Whenever the darkness falls
I feel your hand rest in my hand
Whenever my hear calls to you
You're there to understand me
Whenever I'm down on my knees
You're there to lift me higher
Your guiding light that shines inside me
Penetrates my blindness
Lighting up the way to take me home
Chorus:

Chorus

Lovin' times
repeat


Took Me By Surprise

If I should wander into the star
Search for a reason why You are
I could run to the ends of the earth
And find no answer
It'd be of no worth

If I should look into your eyes
I'd feel a love I couldn't deny
Then I'd run to ends of the earth
To feel that love
Just to be where you were

But you came and you took me
Took me by surprise
Taught me how to love
Opened up my eyes
And I'm just so thankful so thankful to You
Without Your direction oh what could I do?

If I should look into my own heart
I'd see Your love making a start in my life
I wanna give You my all
I come running whenever You call
When I'm feeling to be next to You
I feel so helpless what can I do?
In Your world I know nothing is wrong
And If I can't see You Lord I can't go on

repeat and ad-lib lyrics


Wild Night

Wild night let me discover your end
I have paved a weary trail
To sit beside my only friend
Wild night you shine illusory lights
Deceiving me, grieving me, snatched the bird in flight

Chorus:
Let me go you must abandon me
I'm wounded by you fire
I need redirection, sweet correction
And love to take me higher
I have sought for you
And fought with you
Now I need no more warning
My heart has turned my head around
My eyes await the dawning

Wild night you've got those magnetic forces
Spun me round, let me down
Left me with no courses
Wild night you wear the mask of the clear sky
Danger is nearby and you the people cry

Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Wild night let me discover your end
I have paved a weary trail
To sit beside my only friend
Wild night you sing an empty song
I've heard it through, I've danced with you
I wished that I was wrong

Chorus
I said my heart has turned my head around
My eyes await the dawning

How can I ever stop loving you
You are the one who shelters me when the stars
I don't even know why

How can I ever stop missing you
When you're away a part of me wants to follow
Wherever, oh wherever you go

Wherever I look your eyes appear there before me
Wherever I turn I feel your love just waiting there for me
I hear you whisper sounds of love in my ears
Calling me saying won't you please come home

How can I ever stop wanting you
When my hands were empty
You spun me around in your laughter
Your sweet laughter

How can I ever stop singing for you
Without your wisdom my world would be such an empty place
You fill all the spaces

Wherever I look your eyes appear there before me
Wherever I turn I feel your love just waiting there for me
I hear you whisper sounds of love in my ears
Calling me saying won't you please come home

Your voice is just like music to my ears
Singing to me of all the real things my heart longs to hear
Bringing to me the perfect love to wash away my fears
Taking me home, taking me home

How can I ever stop crying for you
You gave me my freedom wrapped it up in your beauty
Your sweet liberty

How can I ever stop living for you
You gave me the reason to keep my whole life moving along
Just keep me moving on
Just keep me moving on

Something is moving inside my life
A feeling that I can't express
Deep in my heart now I realise
Your love is the key to my happiness

Chorus
You are the beginning (I just want to surrender)
Of a brand new love (Always stay by your side)
A love with no ending (Gotta help me remember)
Help me remember what I'm living for
How you opened the door
Of my heart

What once was a dream is now real to me
You showed me the way to your heart
Your precious smile so dear to me
It pulled all my bad dreams apart

Chorus

Feel you moving my life day to day
So it's something just knowing you're here to show me the way
Leaving disillusion, all my confusion behind
Feel you gently remind me to open my eyes
To the reason why I am alive

Something feeling your breath of grace
Disturbing the sails in my night
Like the gentle breeze upon my face
It's turning me back to your light

Chorus


Love In The name Of Love

If I could say it with these words
What I'm feeling in my soul
If I could it down on paper
Or sing it in a song
Lord I've been waiting all these years
Waiting for a sign
Searching every corner
Lord I've been biding my time

Lord You are my life
You are my strength
You are my everything and more
You took the key to my heart
And You've opened up the door
And when I ask the question why
You do the things You've done (I love Him)
It's love in the name of love
All of my life
Lord I've been searching for Your love
I've been searching for Your love
You make my dreams come true
repeat

You're always there when I need You
My ups and downs You understand
You're my constant inspiration
Lord You are my helping hand
And when the time comes that I need a little help along my way
I know that You'll be there to guide me
Take my doubts away

Always There

Always there, always there, repeat

When all the world is changing all around me
And nothing ever goes the way I planned
When all my thoughts like enemies surround me
And all the tears of sorrow try to drown me
You are always there
You are always there

When loneliness pretends to be my only destiny
And time like sand is slipping through my hands
When the words of all my friends don't see to reach me any more
And the house of all my dreams has blown just every door

You are always there
You are always there
And I know that you're the only one
That walks upon this earth
Than can teach the people how to live in peace
Cause you reveal the source of all the love I ever wanted
You are always there within me
You are always there

When negativity is begging all of my intentions
And the world outside is racing like a storm
When the soul is crying out for all the love you have to give me
And all the things I counted on are no longer with me
You are always there
You are always there

And I know that you're the only one
That walks upon this earth
Than can teach the people how to live in peace
Cause you reveal the source of all the love I ever wanted
You are always there within me
You are always there within me

Here at your feet I have nothing to fear
Just knowing that my sweet Lord is here
Now that I know I'm no longer alone
And I've finally found my way back to my home

Please make me pure as the Light that I see
When I close my eyes to become one with Thee
Now that I'm here I need no longer roam
Cause I've finally found my way back to my home

Some day perhaps we'll merge with God's Name
Our bodies consumed in His eternal flame
But till that day I'm so grateful to be
Alive when my Lord is making men free

For you are what I've spent my life looking for
And now I've received the key to Your door
You've shown me the stairway to Your golden throne
And I've finally found my way back to my home

Some day perhaps we'll merge with God's Name
And then can our songs His glory proclaim
But till that day we're so grateful to be
Alive when our Lord is making men free

For you are what I've spent our lives looking for
And now we've received the key to Your door
You've shown us the stairway to Your golden throne
And we've finally found my way back to our home


Color Of Your Love

You bathed me in the color of your love
Warmed me in the wisdom in your eyes
Showered me with more that I dreamed of
Showed me I was your lover in disguise
I came like a beggar to your Lotus Feet
And you carried me away
You filled me with need to have your love
Freed me with the life that lets me love you
You bathed me in the color of your love
Lifted me away from all my fears
Showed me that your world was high above
Showed me that your Grace was always here
I came like a beggar to your Lotus Feet
And you carried me away
You filled me with need to have your love
Freed me with the life that lets me love you
Love you

You have proved to me
Your endless love
Over and over again
You showed to me the power of your grace
Over and over again

I came like a beggar to your Lotus Feet
And you carried me away
You filled me with need to have your love
Freed me with the life that lets me love you

(repeat)


I Only Want To Be With You

I only want to be with You
repeat

Yesterday I was alone and searching
For a love I could count on every day
Every where I looked there were no answers to my questions
You came and You opened up the way

I only want to be with You
repeat

Can't find a reason for the way You love me
Feel it's growing close day by day
I never want to know a time when we are not together
Cause Your kind of love pulls me in every way

I only want to be with You
repeat


Your Love has No Seasons

To feel You first thing in the day
Opens up my heart in such a beautiful way
So unexpected You're there even when I stray
Showing me more and more
In so many different ways

chorus:
Your Love has no seasons no reasons or no rhyme
Your love is the answer and it has been all the time
Your love is the key that's opened my heart's door

I want to let You love me in every way
I feel so happy when my life is Your play
I'd like to see You and let You be Yourself
I need to be with You cause there's nobody else
chorus

I'm in love
So in love with You
What can I say
Abour what I'm feeling for You
Please take me I'm Your's

Oh Maharaji please show me
I'm ready to start
I can see that your love is deeper than the ocean
Come and take control and making us all one

Our father has come to lead us along the path of perfection
He has come to make us understand why we're alive
He is pure and his love is deeper than the ocean
He is taking control and making us all one

And we're asking please, please, please
Teach me devotion
Oh Maharaji please show me
I'm ready to start
I can see that your love is deeper than the ocean
Come and take control and making us all one

1979 I LOVE YOU

The Greatest Magician

What kind of wonder are You?
How did You make the sun to shine?
In the middle of the darkest night
You showed me such a beautiful light
Melting all the ice around this heart of mine

There was a time when I had no place to go
You picked me up and brought me into Your show
You got the power to open my soul
To the eyes of a child You look so beautiful

chorus:
So won't you make me a part of your magic
You can move me every which way
You take a pebble turn it into a pearl
Cause You're the greatest magician
You're out of this world

I get so lost in illusion
You stand so high above it all
I only want to hold onto feast my eyes on You
Cause everything You do to me is a miracle
And every heart that You touch turns to gold
Whisper Your magic Word and a life unfolds

I need You to pull me like a rabbit out of a hat
Cause I don't know where I'm at
Dreaming of this and that

chorus

You paint a rainbow in the hearts of those You love
From You all mercy flows and if that isn't enough
You created Love

guitar solo

And You're here on a mission of mercy
Can't believe You came here just for me
Every trick in the book just to make me see
And I love You and everything You do
What can I say?
Can't take me eyes off you
How can I praise You?
What kind of wonder, what kind of wonder are You?


What Have You Done To Me

Ooh what have You done to me?
All I can do is bow my head in the presence of Your love

Ooh what have You done to me?

I'm falling I'm flying I'm dying for Your eyes to look me way
Ooh what have You done to me?
Somehow I feel Your love inside each person that I see
Ooh what have You done to me?
I can't believe You want me the way that I've always wanted You

chorus:
Open my heart to Your love
I need You more than the air that I breathe
You are the reason that I smile inside
I loved You at first glance, I love You right now
And I pray that I'll love You forever

And if my tears were made out of coloured water
And You said to write You a song
And ??? about how You have loved me and saved me
When all my hopes and dreams are gone

Ooh what have You done to me?
All I can do is hold onto each drop of Your grace
Ooh what have You done to me?
I feel like Your baby I feel like Your mother
And I feel like it's time to surrender

chorus

I know that I'll love You forever
Ooh what have You done to me?
And I just wanna love You forever


Tears of Happiness

Oh yeah tears of happiness (repeat)
No more searching down those dead end streets for me
Now that I've found Your love
No more wishing on a falling star
Stay in the skies above

chorus:
No more crying now
No more lying now
And the only tears that I weep
tears of happiness oh yeah (repeat)

No more running down those dead end roads for me
Now that I've found Your love
No more wishing on the spinning wheel
Taking away my love

chorus

I ain't gonna cry no more (repeat)


Hold Me Closer




You are the answer to my onlyy prayer
You are ther Master from above
I was so lonely til You came along
With the wonder of Your love
I don't know how I ever met You so
You are my light, my destiny
Oh Maharaji I love You so
You mean everything to me

If You should ever, ever go away
There'd be lonely eyes to cry
The sun above would never shine again
There's be tear drops in the sky

So hold me closer and never let me go
You are my light, my destiny
Oh Maharaji I love You so
You mean everything to me
repeat

I want this world to see Your radiant face
It brings sweet gladness to my heart
I know I'll always always feel Your grace
If we're never apart


You Take The Darkness Away

You bring me ??? to life
And keep on filling me up
With the love in Your heart
You end the separation that keeps us apart

chorus:
You bring me closer to You
With everything that You do
With every word that You say
You take the darkness away
You take the darkness away

And take me from darkness to light
Curing my blindness, giving me sight
To see the smile on Your face
All our suffering You replace
chorus

You take the darkness away
Yes You do Lord

You uplift me
Aand reveal Your love within me
You make my life so complete
You let me rest my head at Your Lotus Feet

You take the darkness away
Yes You do Lord

Maharaji I Am Bound To You

Maharaji I am bound to You
In love and devotion
You have saved me
Really from the deepest coldest ocean

Maharaji I am lost without You
Afraid to doubt You
Too in love to turn away

Regardless of my imperfections

Love the very air You breathe
Each ray of sun that warms Your body
You reside within an infinite ocean of love and compassion
repeat

Maharaji I am bound to You
In love and devotion
You have saved me
Really from the deepest coldest ocean

Maharaji I live to sing the glory of Your name
Oh Maharaji all the world will bow before You
And join their hearts and play this holy game

Love the very air You breathe
Each ray of sun that warms Your body
You reside within an infinite ocean of love and compassion

1980 POWER OF LOVE

Power Of Love

Hard times have never been better
For you and I, it's the same
Together, we can be forever
With the sunshine and rain

You can, you can turn your head
And start to walk away
But it's the power of love (the power of love)
It's the power of love (tlove)
It's the power of love (oooh)
That makes us want to stay

All our lives, we've been trying
To get it on our own way
But each time we end up crying
With no words left to say

We can, we can turn your heads
And start to walk away
But it's the power of love (the power of love)
It's the power of love (love)
It's the power of love (oooh)
That makes you want to get up and do it
It makes you want to feel real free
Well you can spend your time like the sunshine
Can't you feel it, can't you feel the love that's in your heart
Shining forever
From the east to the west no takes no rest

In this hour of love
Within this shower of love
It's here we need to stay

You can, you can give in
And throw it all away
In this hour of love
Within this shower of love
It's here we need to stay
Forever

Coming Home

The pictures and the dreams of all the life that lies behind me
Tell a story of an endless search for You
I can still remember the first time I saw You
My heart was reaching for the love in Your eyes


chorus:
And I knew this was my final journey
Free to get to my highest dream
I can feel the laughter rising up from the soul
I'm coming home

All the way down the line I tried to find You
I searched the faces of the people going by
I can still remember the first sweet moment
Didn't know if I should laugh or cry

chorus

I know that I could never say
Just how much I need You
How can life reach through my soul
I will always love You

I wondered how I ever found You
Perfect dream coming true
All of my life was spent in hope for real love
Who would have ever thought it would end in You

chorus

I'm coming home
repeat


Oasis Of Love

Due to copyright restrictions, this free download of a 40 year old song that was never released except in the confines of the Rawatism cult has been removed. Prem Rawat made tens of millions of dollars from the emotions that songs like this raised in the hearts of his followers.

If I should ever lose sight of you
Please find a way to open my eyes again
Fell into a heavy dream a long time ago
God only knows the kind of shape it got me in
And precious are the hands that gathered all of the pieces
And perfect is the love that made me whole again

Chorus
You are my Oasis of Love
In a world of make believe, fantasy
Oasis of love draw me nearer

The desert and the darkness is where I did find
Something else was moving me to find the other side
When I saw the pure love that pours from your eyes
The gratitude and the ecstasy were burning me inside
And precious are the tears that fall in the name of true love
And priceless is the heart whose door is opening

Chorus x3

repeat
Got to make it to the other side


Message Of The Heart

Your eyes speak of their soul that's searching
And your longing is the same for every heart
Open your eyes love is standing before you
Can't you feel it reaching out a hand to you

chorus:
It's a message of the heart
Communication from soul to soul
It's an invitation for an aching heart
To live in love

Don't stop moving 'til you reach the ground
Don't turn your head around
Let every bridge behind keep burning down
Life will be under the one who loves you
You know you owe yourself a journey home

chorus
repeat


The Need For Love

Though everything around me is changing
There's a feeling in my heart
That seees no rearranging
Knows no end or start
When time yields a burden
The pace becomes too fast
I find myself falling back
To where none of it can last
Where deep inside me lies the need for love

Where pain seems to mellow
And fear seems to fly
The smile that knows no sorrow
Truth that knows no lies
All of the fire in my heart warms and dries
The tears filled for every day could not recognise
Somehow inside of me the need for love

As the flower needs the raindrops
Birds the wind to fly
As the river needs the ocean
Somehow that I know that I
Have a heart to feel love in which to lie

As the field that lies fallow
Is open to the spring
So my heart is opening
To the gift that true life brings
To grow and to build the need for love
To grow and opens with the need for love


Loving Is Where We Start

Like a wave upon the shore
My life it comes and goes
Leaving a shadow memory
To fade with the time and tide
That waits for no one

Rushes the babe to ???
And pushes the man to die
Empty handed came
Empty handed we lie

Like a sound upon the air
Life has it's rise and fall
Leading a shallow melody
Back to the silent soul
That waits for all man

Singin within each heart
Bringing us all to know
That loving is where we start
Loving is where we all go

downpour "DOWNPOUR OF THE HOLY NAME"
- Translated and adapted by Gurucharnanand
from a poem by Saint Kabir

Chorus:
With the of the Holy Name
The Divine colors began to rain.
Began to rain, began to rain,
Began to rain, began to rain,
With the of the Holy Name
The Divine colors began to rain.

The problems of birth and death disappear
When the longing for Holy Name appears.
My Satguru gave me the sign;
I have found my true home again.
True home again, true home again,
True home again, true home again.

(Chorus)

The spirit ascended through the inner gate
And came to the Lord's palace in perfect state.
There the unstruck music was played:
Its sweetness removed all suffering and pain.
Suffering and pain. suffering and pain.
Suffering and pain, suffering and pain.

(Chorus)

Resting at the Feet of my only Beloved,
All my questions and doubts were ended.
The cycle of karma was cut away;
Fear has gone, liberation attained.
Liberation attained, liberation attained,
Liberation attained, liberation attained.

(Chorus)

Satguru gave me the key to realize;
His Word is as straight as the eagle flies.
Boundless joy has sprung in my heart;
Birth has been conquered and freedom obtained.
Freedom obtained, freedom obtained,
Freedom obtained, freedom obtained. (Chorus)

TRUTH, CONSCIOUSNESS AND BLISS

This is an updated version of the second section of the Divine Light Mission Anand Band song "Spread This Knowledge"
The Hindu "Jai Sachitanand" has been replaced by Truth, Consciousness & Bliss and some vapid lines added.

Truth, consciousness and bliss
Let the heart feel free
Truth, consciousness and bliss
Know true love is here
Truth, consciousness and bliss
Feel the heaven on earth
Truth, consciousness and bliss
Let the light fill your day
Truth, consciousness and bliss
True heaven is within

Yes it is …

All things must surely pass
The soul inside it will always last
We could never describe
The secret that is keeping us alive
The kingdom of heaven is within
We say that just because we have seen it
Though all your dreams might fade away
Trouble surrounds you every day
Don't you worry, don't you cry
There is peace lying right deep inside

Yes it is …

Let your heart lead the way

Let this love fill your day

Within Your Love

You have unlocked every door
And filled my empty rooms with more
That I have ever hoped for
The gifts of love they fill my soul
An empty heart is now made whole
Where there was darkness there is light
And even if I try I could not describe
The love you have brought inside my life
A mirror and a friend
In your love I can't pretend
I'm a witness to the life that you bring

In my heart there's a celebration of all the love that I feel inside, inside
And in your love I feel inspiration to be with you always inside, inside
It's all is well within

All is well within, in your love
repeat and big finish

Nothing To Hide - Unfinished

There's a feeling
Deep inside
What a feeling
Something I can't hide
It's so simple
It's so true
There's no time to hold back
You've got to let that feeling through

There is nothing to hide
Love is on your side
Can't you felt that devotion
It set our hearts in motion
Let the light

Nothing to hide
There is nothing to hide

You can't fight lightning
When it strikes
I can't hide it
What it is that I feel inside
In a moment it's crystal clear
reflection
Of a love that's true

You could be standing
Out in the cold
Feeling sad and lonely
More than you've ever felt before
trouble
Now is the time
You've got to leave them
You can leave them all behind

Because love is on your side

Paradise

Sleep and lie waiting for the day
One I often try to find a way
That we can make believe
It's such a fantasy
In these times of such uncertainty
It's hard to find someone who is real and who we can depend
Someone to be a friend

This could be paradise
repeat

I know this love was meant to be
It's like a mighty river flowing to the sea
I want to be with you
I want to be with you
How I know this heart longs to be free
And if it takes from now until eternity
I want to stay with you
I want to stay with you

This could be paradise
repeat

Never Apart

If wishes come true
I'd make one for you
That you never feel afraid
If we could unlock
All the love in our hearts
We'd drown all the fear away

It's easy to feel alone sometimes
We try and fit in each other's dreams
But somehow I know
There's a real connection
Stirring so deep inside you and me

It's a real love that keeps us together
A sweet understanding
Binding our hearts
And though there's an ocean
Of difference between us
Somehow I know we're never apart

Sometimes I look into your eyes
And see a part of myself there
Somewhere so deep
Beyond the disguise
A love that we will always share

It's easy to feel alone sometimes
We try and fit in each other's dreams
But somehow I know
There's a real connection
Stirring so deep inside you and me


Easy To Love

No green hills faraway
No make believe
No hide and seek
No in the sun
No wait and see
No complications
You've got animation
A laughing love

Chorus:
It's easy to love, easy to love, yeah
It's easy to love, so easy to love
It's easy to love, with you

I can hear say
Softly
Something trusting you
Wearing a smile
Would you rest a while
You've got animation
A laughing love

Chorus


Born For This

On a ringside seat
Sitting on a heartbeat
Riding the pulse of harmony
Into the heart of beauty

Born for this
Gentle fusion
Born for this
Soft diffusion
Born for this
It's all I need

It's about the heart
It's all around the heart
It's about the heart

repeat

This Is My Paradise

I can hear you whisper softly
Tears are falling from my heart
Like a river over flowing
In the presence of your love
Empty handed
I reach out for you
There's no-one in this world
Who can do what you do
I've been everywhere I could ever search for paradise
But I never found the kind of love
I feel here tonight

Chorus:
This is my paradise
This is where the love begins
This is where a broken heart will mend
I've waited all my life, for you
And when I saw you I just knew

I close my eyes
And I'm far away in love
Hold me in this place forever
Protect my heart
I've been everywhere I know
Searching for the love that was real
But I never found the kind of love
You can make me feel

Chorus

There's a hungry feeling
In this world today I know
I can feel your love inside me
Everywhere I go
