Lyrics: 

V1
can you feel the lake breeze
taste the freshness of June air
amid tall white pine trees and ferns

can you see the moon rise
know the magic of a clear sky
on top of rugged bluffs and berms

PC
can you imagine now?
can you dream somehow?
can you think of just this
for a moment...

C
try to open you heart to feel
try to close your eyes to see
try to clear your mind to know
and come taste peace with me

V2
can you feel the quiet
taste the softness of night air
amid swells of waves on the shore?

can you see the North Star
know the wonder of the Spirit
above where the gold eagles soar?

PC
can you imagine now?
can you dream somehow?
can you think of just this
for a moment

C
try to open you heart to feel
try to close your eyes to see
try to clear your mind to know
and come peace with me

try to open you heart to feel
try to close your eyes to see
try to clear your mind to know
and come taste peace with me

I took your advice and closed my eyes....and got lost in this gorgeous, acoustic haze. Then I opened my eyes, and I was back in Stevenage, and it was raining. Ah well. Lovely collab!

Very nice! This one's got some interesting lyrics, and was performed well. Your voice reminds me of a friend that moved down to Florida, and added to my enjoyment immensely.

Incredible lyrics, brought to lovely musical life! Val's performance sounds like she's making these observations as she's playing and singing - a great job of capturing the be-present feel of the words.

So many really vivid images that brought me right outside and "to another place" for a few minutes! Lines like: "on top of rugged bluffs and berms" give a depth of description that appeals to the senses so well! The vocal is so delicately delivered. The softness in your vocal halfway thru adds beautifully to the whole atmosphere. Lovely melody too! Great collab!!

An almost meditative song that needs to be heard. It's a great message. Not an easy goal to achieve, I'm afraid, but it starts with each of us. And beautifully told both in lyric and in melody.
