Track Name: Can you see the Beauty
Can you see the Beauty, in me
see the Beauty, in yourself
see the Beauty, in everybody
Can you see, Can you see
Can you see the Beauty

Nobody said that it would be easy
Shed a river of tears my friend
Then dry yourself off on the sunny shore
Until you start all over again…. Meanwhile…

Can you see the Beauty, in me
see the Beauty, in yourself
see the Beauty, in the scenery
Can you see, Can you see
Can you see the Beauty

I want out of this worn body
I can’t see past my fears
The mountain feels too rough to climb
I need help shifting gears, help me

see the Beauty, in thee
see the Beauty, in myself
see the Beauty, in my adversary
So I see, so I see
So I see the Beauty….

Do you want to get radical
Put your head around this
Do you want to get radical
Put your head around, put your head around this
Do you want to get radical
Put your head around this
Radical Acceptance

Cause if I can accept it
Everything is OK
If I can accept it
Everything is alright
If I can accept it
Everything is OK
It’s ok, It’s OK
Everything is alright…..in me….
Track Name: Salty Thoughts
Salty Thoughts

A little bit sour
A little bit sweet
I like it going past my teeth
I like the taste upon my tongue
And the tingle when it’s done

A little bit spicy
A little bit hot
Another teaspoon, maybe not.
My hunger grows, my craving shows
I better keep the flame on low

I’ve got salty thoughts
As I stir my pot
Steaming, simmering, boiling, bubbling
Salty thoughts

I’ve bitten off more than I can chew
But I’d like to share this meal with you
It’ll heat me, gently, sweetly
Fill me up, tasty, completely

When I see this feast we made
All these flavours on parade
I can wait, anticipate
What you’ll dish out upon my plate

I’ve got salty thoughts
As I stir my pot
Steaming, simmering, boiling, bubbling
Salty thoughts

Bridge: You’ve got a sweet tooth
I’ve got a salty one
Sing sweet sweet nothins to me
I’ll be on the salt shaker
I’ve got salty thoughts
As I stir my pot
Steaming, simmering, boiling, bubbling
I’m overwrought
I’ve got salty thoughts
As I stir my pot Sweeeet/Salty Thoughts
Steaming, simmering, boiling, bubbling
Sweeeeet/Salty thoughts
Track Name: Sage & Wild Roses
Sage & Wild Roses
Ch: Take my hand I want to walk with you
through sage and wild roses
Aspen whisper love is new, trembling
sage and wild roses

Air’s sweet and musky and the sun is warm
Don’t keep me waiting I want to be in your arms
Leave town politics aside for a time
‘Cause this moment is yours and mine

Ch: Take my hand I want to walk with you
through sage and wild roses
Aspens whisper love is new, trembling
sage and wild roses

You’ve got your business, and I’ve got mine
but right now honey we’re gonna make a little time
I look around me what do I see: I see birds, bees, you and me

Ch: Take my hand I want to walk with you
through sage and wild roses
Aspen whisper love is new, trembling
sage and wild roses

Our presence and this day
Is a gift not to be thrown away
Dive in. Let’s play
We can get carried
We can get carried
We can get carried away

Ch: Take my hand I want to walk with you
through sage and wild roses
Aspens whisper love is new, trembling
sage and wild roses
Take my hand
Track Name: Grumpy Pants
Grumpy Pants

I am in a foul mood
I feel lethargic
I don’t know what to do
I’ve got these aches & pains
In my body and in my brain
You bet it’s real
It’s also a state of mind
Take time to unwind

I’ve got my Grumpy Pants on
I don’t recommend it
I hope it won’t last long
I’ve got my Grumpy Pants on
Grumpy Pants
Grumpy Pants on

I look around all I see
Are those little things
that keep bugging me
I make monsters out of my pet peeves
I’ve got a bumper crop, ‘cause I planted the seeds
What do I hunger
Which craving shall I feed
Let joy take the lead

I’ve got my Grumpy Pants on
I don’t recommend it
I hope it won’t last long
I’ve got my Grumpy Pants on
Grumpy Pants
Grumpy Pants on

Bridge Bitter bitter bitter bitter mood, bitter mood, bitter mood
Better better better better mood, better mood, better mood (repeat)

They call me Grumpy Pants
Well, that’s Ms Grumpy Pants to you
If I get another chance
I’ll laugh my way on through
Bitter mood, better mood

I’ve got my Grumpy Pants on
I’m feeling better
Now that I sing this song
I’ve got my Grumpy Pants on
Grumpy Pants. Grumpy Pants on.

They call me Grumpy Pants
That’s Ms, I said that’s
Ms Grumpy Pants to you.
Track Name: Longing
Longing

Longing is a deep desire
Like a damp chill seeking fire
It feels unachievable
Too sad to be dreamable
And in that space there’s longing
In that space there is longing

Swept up in my loss
I see her long beautiful able-bodied fingers
Glide effortlessly along
The neck of her guitar

Longing is a deep desire
Like a damp chill seeking fire
It feels unachievable
Too sad to be dreamable
And in that space there’s longing
In that space there is longing

Swept up in my loss
I see her become one with the music
She can dance all night
Without losing breath or energy

I used to take it all for granted
Didn’t know the freedom that was mine
It had to be taken away from me
To appreciate those times
When my cup feels empty
I’ve got to fill it up with love
Fill it to the brim with laughter
So I won’t be swallowed up
By that space
By that space longing

Longing is a deep desire
Like a damp chill seeking fire
It feels unachievable
Too sad to be dreamable
And in that space …..
In that space
In that space
there is longing
Track Name: Two Kinds of Pie
Two Kinds of Pie

Variety is the spice of life
So give me two kinds of pie
With whipped cream on the side

He peels my apples
And picks my cherries
He makes jelly
Out of my berries
When I see him coming
I say “I’ll tell you something:
I’ve got red hot lovin’
Cookin’ in my oven.”

Two kinds of pie
Two kinds of pie
Two kinds of pie
with whipped cream on the side
I like two kinds of pie

He pounds my cabbage
Sauerkraut is salty
There ain’t no part
of my man that’s faulty
When he comes around
After being in town
I say “I know how
To make you sleep sweet & sound”

Two kinds of pie
Two kinds of pie
Two kinds of pie
with whipped cream on the side
I like two kinds of pie

He digs my garden
He’s my Soil Man
When he gets dirty
I plant all I can
He pollinates my flowers
Grows my peas nice ‘n sweet
A healthy diet is complete… with…

Two kinds of pie
I like two kinds of pie
Two kinds of pie
with whipped cream on the side
I like two kinds of pie

Variety is the spice of life
So give me two kinds of pie
With whipped cream on the side
Track Name: Apathy is Boring
Apathy is Boring

What are we doing?
What are we doing now?
There’s gotta be something
Better
What are we doing?
What are we doing now?
There’s gotta be something
Bigger

Chorus: We can become an Agent of Change
We can Represent
I know the couch will be there in the morning
And I know that Apathy is boring
Represent
Get up. Get up
Apathy is boring

Ivory tower
Way up in the clouds
This is the hour
Now
Ivory tower
Bringing it on down
Making it ours
Right now

Chorus: We can become an Agent of Change
We can Represent
I know the couch will be there in the morning
And I know that Apathy is boring
Represent
Get up. Get up
Apathy is boring

Bridge: Actions speak louder than words
Walk the talk, walk the walk
Actions speak louder than words
We are meant to represent

Chorus: We can become an Agent of Change
We can Represent
I know the couch will be there in the morning
And I know that Apathy is boring
Represent
Get up. Get up
Apathy is boring
Track Name: You Can Get it Used
You Can Get it Used

Chorus: Wanna know what I got
At the 2nd hand shop?
Wanna see my score?
You’ll never guess how much I got it for.
Why buy something new, when you can get it used
Get it used.

My honey is a scavenger
He can find what he’s looking for
He can build a whole lot
From things that others do not want
It may take a little time
But he saves more than a dime.

Chorus: Wanna know what I got
At the 2nd hand shop?
Wanna see my score?
You’ll never guess how much I got it for.
Why buy something new, when you can get it used
Get it used.

These days things are poorly made
You’ll need another one in a day
You can fix it if you try
But it is cheaper if you buy
It seems like such a waste
To have to constantly replace


Bridge: Someone’s trash is another one’s treasure
Someone’s junk is another one’s pleasure
Why throw away something perfectly good
If you can’t use it, maybe I could
We’ll be doing the world a favour
If we cut down on our wasteful behaviour


Chorus: Wanna know what I got
At the 2nd hand shop?
Wanna see my score?
You’ll never guess who much I got it for.
Why buy something new, when you can get it used
Get it used.
Track Name: Pour Moi
Pour Moi

Ce soir je vais danser
Personne ne me voit
Je vais me laisser aller
Je danse pour moi
Ooooooh je danse pour vivre

Grace a mes deux pieds
Et a la musique
Grace a mes efforts
Et le rhythme du corps
Je suis capable
Je suis capable
Check-moi ben aller

Ce soir je vais chanter
personne ne m’entend
Je vais me laisser aller
Je chante pour moi
Oooooh je chante pour vivre

Grace a mes poumons
la melodie, le son
Grace a mes cordes vocales
Et et mon coeur musicale
Je suis capable
Je suis capable
Check-moi ben aller

Je ne peux plus la prendre pour acquise
C’est une danse de vie
Je ne peux plus le prendre pour acquis
C’est un chant de vie

Ce soir je vais danser
personne ne me voit
Je vais me laisser aller
Je danse pour moi
Ooooooooh je danse pour vivre
Ooooooooh je chante pour vivre
Ooooooooh je danse pour vivre
Ooooooooh je chante pour vivre
Track Name: Be the Change
Be the Change

Be the Change. Be the Change

Chorus: Be the change that you want to see in the world
Ghandi said it: Be the change that you want to see in the world

There’s so many small things, small things we can do, ungh hungh
to make a ripple
Thare are so many small things, small things we can change ungh hungh
to create a wave

Chorus: Be the change that you want to see in the world
Be the change that you want to see in the world

We create it ourselves

Chorus: Be the change that you want to see in the world
Be the change that you want to see in the world

There isn’t one of us who doesn’t suffer
We need to take good care of each other
Be the change
Be the change
Remember to pay it forward
Do not wait until tomorrow
Be the Change
Be the Change

Make a Ripple
Create a Wave
You know you can Be the Change
You know you can Be the Change
Make a Ripple
Create a Wave
You know you can Be the Change
You know you can Be the Change


Chorus: Be the change that you want to see in the world
Be the change that you want to see in the world

Track Name: Shades of Blue
Shades of Blue

How many shades of grey do I see…
How many shades of blue can I be…
Add some pink and I am plum
But give me more black and I’m done, done done

Follow my footprints through the fallen snow
To a cozy cabin in a place I know
No worries, we’ll think of something to do
To blow away these Winter Blues

How many shades of grey do I see…
How many shades of blue can I be…
Add some pink and I am plum
But give me more black and I’m done, done done

Light my fire and heat up my nights
Dance me with the moving Northern Lights
Show me the diamonds laying in the hoar frost
We’ll get through another winter at any cost

How many shades of grey do I see…
How many shades of blue can I be…
Add some pink and I am plum
But give me more black and I’m done, done done

Colour me yellow, ‘til I see the sun
Colour me red until I feel warm
Colour me green ‘til I smell the spring
Then keep on, keep on colouring

How many shades of grey do I see…
How many shades of blue can I be…
Add some pink and I am plum
But give me more black and I’m done, done done
Track Name: Red Shoes
Red Shoes

Annie has got her red shoes on
Annie’s got her red shoes on
Annie has got her red shoes on
Annie’s got her red shoes on

Annie’s had a day. Annie’s had a week
Annie doesn’t stop, Annie doesn’t sleep
But when she puts her fingers on those piano keys
the crowd begs more Annie please….. ‘cause…..

Annie has got her red shoes on
Annie’s got her red shoes on
Annie has got her red shoes on
Annie’s got her red shoes on

Life as we know it is suspended in time
When Annie plays piano everything is fine
She lets magic take over and we all receive
You see it in her smile. It’s in the air she breathes

“Music is healing” I heard her say
Worries disappear when she plays

Annie has got her red shoes on
Annie’s got her red shoes on
Annie has got her red shoes on
Annie’s got her red shoes on
Track Name: More than a Diagnosis Blues
More than a Diagnosis Blues

I go to the Doctor ‘cause I
Want to know what’s going on
He studies my body
But forgets that I am a person.

I don’t want your vision of me
To cloud how I see myself
I will not define my life
By an illness

I’m in and out of clinics
I meet a of cynics
I’ve got to feel my loss
But dwelling on it has too much of a cost

I don’t want your vision of me
To cloud how I see myself
I will not define my life
By an illness

I’m so tired of hearing ‘bout progressive,
degenerative, condition
Why not the possibility of
Spontaneous remission?

I don’t want your vision of me
To cloud how I see myself
I will not define my life
By an illness

So don’t put me in a box
A neat and tidy file
I’m more than my diagnosis
No, that does not mean I’m in denial

I don’t want your vision of me
To cloud how I see myself
I will not define my life
By an illness

So go on give me your prognosis
But I’m more than my diagnosis
I am more, I’m so much more
Track Name: What do you do with your Fire?
What do you do with your fire?

Before I get your number
Before we start counting the score
Before you enter my dreams at night
And take me to that magical shore

Before I take your hand
And walk you through that door
Before I introduce my friends
There’s something we cannot ignore

What do you do with your fire?
Do you heat your home
Or do you burn it down?
What do you do with your fire?
Do you share your spark
or spread a flame around?

Before I meet your mother
Before the photographer shows
Before the whole story gets carved in stone
Or recorded in indelible prose

Before you make me coffee
Before I butter your toast
Before we install the fridge and stove
There’s something I want to know

What do you do with your fire?
Do you heat your home
Or do you burn it down?
What do you do with your fire?
Do you share your spark
or spread a flame around?

Where do you burn, burn, burn, burn
Honour that spark
Where do you burn, burn, burn, burn
Follow that flame
Where do you burn, burn, burn, burn
Honour that spark

What do you do with your fire?
Do you heat your home
Or do you burn it down?
What do you do with your fire?
Do you share your spark
or spread a flame around?
