about

Evocative, with rich lyrical symbolism and vocal textures, the endcap of the Legends of the Goddess series, "TRILOGY: Legend of the Goddess III," brings this musical journey full circle. Come along as the music weaves a thread though time and cultures (The World Is A River), feel the power of faith (It Shall Be No More) and touch the sweetness of the love of a lifetime (I've Loved You Forever). Mystical, personal and uplifting, these are songs for the discriminating listener who wishes for something beyond the ordinary from their listening experience.

Track Name: I've Loved You Forever
I’VE LOVED YOU FOREVER
(Laura Powers)

The power, the glory
I see the laughter and the tears
Through lifetimes, our story
Grows ever stronger with the years

Only you hold the key to my soul
Only you can set it free

Oh, darling I know that
I know I’ve loved you forever
Come show me
I know I’ve loved you forever

Pale moonlight, two lovers
We disappear into the night
Deep shadows, our cover
We disappear before dawn’s light

Only you hold the key to my soul
Only you can set it free

Oh darling, I know that
I know I’ve loved you forever
Come show me
I know I’ve loved you forever

The first time that your
Eyes met mine
I felt our souls had been entwined
I’ve waited so long just to see
The one who’s always
Filled my dreams

Track Name: The World is a River
THE WORLD IS A RIVER
(Laura Powers)

The world is a river
Running through me
The wind is a whisper of
Ghosts and sounds
I flow with the waters
I bend with the breezes
And I will love you
From where I’m bound

The world is a river
With traces of glory
A thread that runs through us
And I hear the story of
You and me
Every sorrow and every dream

I will sing you the song of
Hope in my heart
I’ll reach to the distance
And flow where you are
For the world is a river
The world is a river

I do not know you yet
I run through you
Echoes of memories
Pale as the moon
The road of our
Mothers’ restless journey
The way of the water
They once knew

The world is a river
A keeper of secrets
And here in the darkness
I hear the story of you and me
Every sorrow and every dream

Will you sing me the song
Deep in your heart
I’ll reach to the distance
And flow where you are
For the world is a river
The world is a river

I hear the cry of the ancients
For dreams that never would be
A million voices still calling
Remember me, remember me
The world is a river
Running through me
The wind is a whisper of
Ghosts and sounds
Old as the waters
Young as the breezes
I will love you
From where I’m bound

I will sing you the song of
Hope in my heart
I’ll reach to the distance
And flow where you are
For the world is a river
The world is a river

Track Name: Druantia
DRUANTIA
(Laura Powers/David Lloyd)

Druantia rules her own
Slice of the dark
She’s got a claim on a
Hidden piece of your heart

She knows the secrets you keep
She feels the love
The love that you need

Druantia kisses the night
In a dream of a thousand lovers
Her touch can’t be denied
When you hear your name
In the shadows

A million years of
Looking up to the sky
The druid’s sign reflected
Deep in her eyes

She knows the secrets you keep
She feels the love
The love that you need

Druantia kisses the night
In a dream of a thousand lovers
Her touch can’t be denied
When you hear your name
In the shadows


What will your answer be
When she offers immortality

Track Name: Pale Sister
PALE SISTER
(Laura Powers/David Lloyd)

There is a veil
To the world where I belong
When twilight falls
I step beyond
Time is no more
My spirit soars

Pale sister
Weave your spell of silver light
Pale sister
Guide me past the veil tonight
Whisper your timeless secrets
Wrapped in the mysteries
Of the night

Like these tall trees
I reach up to heaven’s gate
Here in my heart
I am one with this place
Time is no more
My spirit soars

Pale sister
Weave your spell of silver light
Pale sister
Guide me past the veil tonight
Whisper your timeless secrets
Wrapped in the mysteries
Of the night

Track Name: Shine Love
SHINE LOVE
(Laura Powers/David Lloyd)

I gaze into the frozen distance
I hear the echoes of my tears
Holding pieces of
These wasted years

I know there’s
Something better waiting
I just can’t see which way to go
Fighting shadows only
Makes them grow

Shine love
Lead me through this
Darkness in my soul
Shine love, comfort me
Give me some sign that
I’m not alone
Shine love

I feel part of a greater wholeness
The fire that feeds me is the sun
In the end everything is one

Shine love
Lead me through this
Darkness in my soul
Shine love, comfort me
Give me some sign that
I’m not alone
Shine love

Track Name: Get Inside
GET INSIDE
(Laura Powers)

Welcome to the world of ancients
Can you hear them
They want to warn you not to try
Can you hear them calling

Step up here and guess the riddle
Look the lion in the eye
Merlin’s staff and Raven’s fiddle
Launch yourself into the sky
I see you in the shadows
I can read your mind
Many men have failed the test
Many men have tried
To find the hidden treasure
And to get inside
Get inside, get inside

This room holds a timeless secret
Can you feel it
Its riches locked deep within
Can you feel it calling

Step up here and guess the riddle
Look the lion in the eye
Merlin’s staff and Raven’s fiddle
Launch yourself into the sky

I see you in the shadows
I can read your mind
Many men have failed the test
Many men have tried
To find the hidden treasure
And to get inside
Get inside, get inside

One time I hear you answer
Two times I hear you call
These riches soon will haunt you
I see the hammer fall

Track Name: Dance 'Til the Rain Begins
DANCE TILL THE RAIN BEGINS
(Laura Powers/Chris Pelcer)

Ride the setting sun
Skip across the seven oceans
Throw a kiss up to the sky
Dance till the rain begins

Dare to dream out loud
Fill your cup to overflowing
Throw a kiss up to the sky
Dance till the rain begins

When sorrows of goodbye
Return to find a heart still empty
Throw a kiss up to the sky
Dance till the rain begins

Feel the drops fall
As the heavens open
Hear a sweet voice
Calling out your name
Follow the sound
Till you find that only
Love remains

Feel the drops fall
As the heavens open
Hear a sweet voice
Calling out your name
Washing away all that
Time won’t heal till
Love remains

You have loved me well
As if the clouds
Could shower diamonds
Throw a kiss up to the sky
Dance till the rain begins

Track Name: Mystic and the Muse
MYSTIC AND THE MUSE
(Laura Powers/Tracey McEvoy)

A spiral shell
The deepest well
The beating of my heart
All echo with the
Mysteries of your art
And on this darkest night
I give my word

I take your seven secrets
Into the fire
Like the Phoenix flew
Where only love can reach us
We rise anew
The Mystic and the Muse

We burn so bright
You take the light
Spin it into gold
You reach through time
To hear a voice of old
And now it calls to us
And so we go

I take your seven secrets
Into the fire
Like the phoenix flew
Where only love can reach us
We rise anew
The Mystic and the Muse

Track Name: It Shall Be No More
IT SHALL BE NO MORE
(Laura Powers/David Lloyd)

Put away the table goods
Cork the berry wine
Hide the bins and baskets
While we still have time
Tell them these are counting stones
Lest they take them away
Young Derwood brings us warning
An issue comes today

The king sent down his high decree
On the eve of Calan Mai
The ancient ways are banished
Going forward from this day
The high songs and the sacred feasts
Driven from the shores
It shall be no more

Burn the eldest oak grove
Tear down the ring of shale
Cover up the entryway and
Path to Blackmoor Hill
They will have us change the
Outward signs of who we are
But with the moon as witness
We will never change our hearts

The king sent down his high decree
On the eve of Calan Mai
The ancient ways are banished
Going forward from this day
The high songs and the sacred feasts
Driven from the shores
It shall be no more

Track Name: Silver Wheel
SILVER WHEEL
(Laura Powers/Chris Pelcer)

May your dreams bring you peace
As your soul finds release
When you fly from this realm
You will always be with me

A dream in our hearts
And a song on the air
I will remember
Sweet days of summer
We haven’t a care
I will remember you

Our dreams soar
With the four winds
Our hopes rise up anew
Seasons change
While our hearts stay
Strong and true

High the harvest moon glows
O’re the bounty blessed
Leaves like secrets fall
Silent--a time of rest

Watch the silver wheel turn round
Spinning cold and quiet
Casting fields of gray and brown
In a world of white
Heaven’s dial turns once again
Ice crone sings softly
Once again she takes her throne
The silver wheel circles home

Winter of Dreams (reprise)
I see your face in fields of snow
Hear your voice in winds that blow
You left me with this memory
That’s haunting my winter of dreams

Bonus Track

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN
(Laura Powers)

Let our eyes see only beauty
Let our hands be kind and strong
Let our hearts seek love always
And our voices raise in song

Tonight we are surrounded
By dear and faithful friends
May the ties of friendships keep us
Until we meet again

May these sweet ties hold and keep us
Until we meet again
