SWEETEST SONG (Laura Powers/Chris Pelcer) I still see your eyes sometimes When shadows darken the sun I rattle the walls, my love For the endless rain to be gone With a wave you are by my side Like a kiss from on high Fill the emptiness with your words Giving me wings so my spirit can fly Follow the sweetest song Rise over treetops to greet the dawn Dance as your heart plays on Long may your dream be your island A harbor to rest the soul Fair winds to calm the sea When your heart leads the journey, love You will have all you need Follow the sweetest song Rise over treetops to greet the dawn Dance as your heart plays on Long may your dream be your island Someday you’ll find your dream Paradise meant to be Long before this world ever begun We've been longing for our hearts to be one Follow the sweetest song Rise over treetops to greet the dawn Dance as your heart plays on Long may your dream be your island © Powervibe Music /Million Suns Music

BEYOND THE PALE (Laura Powers/John Tirro) There is a line around my soul A place where I dare not go Tonight my heart sets sail Far beyond the pale He blew in from the sea Bringing tales from the mainland Of lands where silk was gold His eyes were afire His voice held me spellbound With the ruby-rich unknown Thought I looked everywhere But now my journey has begun For I've discovered There is a line around my soul A place where I dare not go Tonight my heart sets sail Far beyond the pale Then he sang of the sea And of beautiful maidens He smiled and bowed to me Thought I looked everywhere But now my journey has begun For I've discovered There is a line around my soul A place where I dare not go Tonight my heart sets sail Far beyond the pale © Powervibe Music /New Hayes Music/Arts & Crafts Music

A HEART IN WINTER (Laura Powers) Je donnerais mon esprit Donnerais mon âme A l'obscure saison Pour t'avoir prés de moi Que reste-t-il encore De mon coeur qui se fane? Peut être un pâle rayon Dans le silence du froid A heart in winter Can't love, can't feel A dream so tender Won't grow, won't heal Without you, without you I can't fight the chill Without you, without you I wait for you still Une vision, une colombe L'espérance de l'amour S'élance de mes doigts Pour te crier "reviens!" Volera jusqu’ à toi Pour guider ton retour Oui, je donnerais tout Pour reprendre ta main A heart in winter Can't love, can't feel A dream so tender Won't grow, won't heal Without you, without you I can't fight the chill Without you, without you I wait for you still © Powervibe Music French translation: Pierre Halés

ANSWER ME WITH SILENCE (Laura Powers/Dwight Liles) When my search is fruitless And my spirit pines for rest Setting sun and frozen field Answer me with silence Fill with light my longing soul As the chill of winter grows Tell me what the wide moors know Answer me with silence Say not your thoughts Say nothing at all You, my love, who know me well Touch me where my true heart dwells Where there are no words to say Answer me with silence When my search is fruitless And my spirit pines for rest All things I hold dearest Answer me with silence © Powervibe Music /WillDawn Music

IN THE ARMS OF THE MILKY WAY (Laura Powers/David Lloyd) Riding on a comet's tail She tumbled into life She reaches up For a handful of light Touches it to earth to warm the night The voices on the wind Celestial sound Whispering heaven's here and now The moon, the tide The sea of endless sky She dances with a universe in play She lights the dark She knows she is a spark Even in this new world she feels safe In the arms of the Milky Way Orion sneezed and the fourth star fell Shifted his sword and notched his belt He caught her laughing And they both smiled They felt the spell of a lover's night The moon, the tide The sea of endless sky She dances with a universe in play She lights the dark She knows she is a spark Even in this new world she feels safe In the arms of the Milky Way Riding the spiral through light years of stars Forever's waiting in her backyard The moon, the tide The sea of endless sky She dances with a universe in play She lights the dark She knows she is a spark Even in this new world she feels safe In the arms of the Milky Way © Powervibe Music/Singing Kiva Publishing

LONG WAY DOWN (Laura Powers) She was the rock we all leaned on She was the one we couldn't do without Somehow I thought she'd always be here Of her love there was no doubt I wish I could say time's made me stronger I'd like to say I've grown somehow But then I fall in the hole she left behind And don't you know it's a long way down She was the sun that made my world turn A steady hand, a ready smile And though I have the sweetest memories My heart is heavy all the while I wish I could say time's made me stronger I'd like to say I've grown somehow But then I fall in the hole she left behind And don't you know it's a long way down © Powervibe Music

THE GODDESS OF THE SEA MIST (Laura Powers/Sharon Cort) Late at night on the ocean Her presence felt in times of need When dangers arise just close your eyes She comes to you in dreams She sings and the waters glimmer She sighs and your sails catch wind Steady on your course, give in to the force A journey of wonder and bliss Behold the goddess of the sea mist Stars will shine ever brighter Moonbeams now dance in the mist A soft jasmine wind brushes your skin Her caress, her lover's kiss She sings and the waters glimmer She sighs and your sails catch wind Steady on your course, give in to the force A journey of wonder and bliss Behold the goddess of the sea mist © Powervibe Music /Cortmelodies

BELTHANE FIRES (Laura Powers) Oh the fire of Belthane nights High, high the firelight And my love I’ll meet you there The turn of May the sweet night air Oh, the spell the magic strewn The lovers’ kiss beneath the moon And I know my hearts desire Will reflect in the Belthane fire A circle cast a circle drawn A blackthorn bush a willow wand And oh, my love there is no sleep For in this dark my eyes can see By this night, by yon oak tree By the fires of Belthane come to me © Powervibe Music

SISTERS OF THE WIND (Laura Powers/Chris Pelcer) Sweet abandon Goddess of air Tangled starlight Trails from her hair In the silence of time forgotten Before the garden of man Riding currents with all creation She played out God's hand Wings of fortune Beckon the dawn Cross fields of heather They circle the moors Somewhere over the mists of morning Beyond the mountains of sky They'll pass right through your dreams With a whispering sigh They fly graceful and bold The four winds of heaven Rise shining like gold Their world knows no end Forever sisters of the wind And willow Alder and ash Groves of glory Bow as they pass East and west of the mystic crossroads North and south of the sea They'll find and guide you along If you believe They fly graceful and bold The four winds of heaven They rise shining like gold Their world knows no end Forever sisters of the wind © Powervibe Music /Million Suns Music

THE PIPES OF INISHMORE (Laura Powers/Bob Halligan, Jr.) There over Galway bay Like jewels in the sea The isle of my early years Is calling out to me And just for a moment I'm on your rocky shore With my love beside me and I can hear the pipes of Inishmore Twas June and the yellow blooms Covered all the hills A piper on the highest cliff Made our hearts stand still And just for a moment I'm on your rocky shore With my love beside me and I can hear the pipes of Inishmore Calling, Calling, calling me home Calling, calling, calling me home When silence of winter comes And all is gray and brown I close my eyes and lift my head To hear the sweetest sound And just for a moment I'm on your rocky shore With my love beside me and I can hear the pipes of Inishmore Just for a moment My heart skips and soars Forever remaining Where I can hear the pipes of Inishmore © Powervibe Music /Lil’ Miss Magic/WBOBMUSIC
