Liner Notes: 

Wanted to focus on something positive and this came out with that in mind. I just start somewhere and let them go where they go....

Lyrics: 

MIX IT ALL UP

Under the violet sky
I watch the butterflies
And birds who soar
Are part of life’s decor

And there’s branches on trees
The wind that shakes their leaves
If I close my eyes
I swear it’s like high tide

[ch]
Oh, life has textures
Life has a temper
And when we mix it all up
We get all kinds of weather
Our spirit is untamed
Our spirit is unashamed
And when we mix it all up
We are fully entertained

I watch the river flow
Strength makes the water go
I hope to have
Pure energy like that

I see some tall cattails
Amongst the reeds and trails
They all will thrive
They know how to survive

[ch]
Oh, life has textures
Life has a temper
And when we mix it all up
We get all kinds of weather
Our spirit is untamed
Our spirit is unashamed
And when we mix it all up
We are fully entertained

[br]
And we keep on with our lives
We live with wrongs and with rights
No one day is like the other
Cuz there’s so many...so many colors

[ch]
Oh, life has textures
Life has a temper
And when we mix it all up
We get all kinds of weather
Our spirit is untamed
Our spirit is unashamed
And when we mix it all up
We are fully entertained

I like the positive attitude towards life and the world. And of course, I like the way you find beauty and meaning in nature and make it all sound so wonderful and almost magical. The verses match very well. Good writing here.
I had to google "cattails". In Finnish it's called "osmankäämä" and I don't even know what "osman" or "käämä" means. Smile

This is indeed positive with some wonderful images. Good verses and a strong chorus.
I never know where the lyric is going until the next line appears. I like it better that way too.
