One Land 03:31
From the vastness of green valleys Between the snow-covered rounded peaks Lies the peaceful part of nature From which the great creator speaks Beyond the sun dogs and the ice fog Beyond the deep woven Aspen trees Lies the quiet part of nature From the mountains to the arctic seas One land like no other Lies beneath the midnight sun One hand reaches another In the land of the Kwan Lin Dun The mighty Yukon flows As the clear nor’wester blows Beyond the mighty frozen glaciers Between the running cool water streams Lies the secrets of creation As reflected from the bright sun beams Beside the clay cliffs and the snow drifts Below the ice along the river’s shore Lies this peaceful part of nature In this country we all adore Where the eagles/ravens fly Across the vast blue open skies

Jesus walked from the shoreline onto the Sea of Galilee He shouted out to Peter, “Come on, boy, follow me” Peter got up in the boat feeling afraid and alone He jumped into the water and sank like a stone. Now he calls out to us in the very same way “Get out of the boat and listen to what I say” It's about your faith and perception and nothing much more You have to float on the water Before you can walk to the shore It's about your fears It's about your dread It's about those negative thoughts That float in your head You gotta let go of what you think you see You gotta open your heart and jump in and believe. Now all those storms that come your way That may rock your boat with a fearful sway It's about your faith and perception and nothing much more You have to float on the water Before you can walk to the shore

I can't get you out of my mind In this beautiful start Filled with joy and as we talk on the phone You've already grasped my searching heart Flying to Whitehorse on Saturday To share a coffee with you, baby, at the Baked Cafe Overwhelmed by dreams of holding you tight How can this happen at such a speed? My mind can't keep up to what my heartbeat feels Oh, but I feel it's what I need. Flying to Whitehorse on Saturday To share a coffee with you, baby, at the Baked Cafe Nothing comes to those that sit around and wait You have to make it happen to survive I want to grasp your heart and never let go If that is what it means to be alive

He was a strongman built like an ox He carried field stones and smashed sidewalks He left his laughter wherever he went I’ll remember him and the time that we spent My father laughs about the stories still How Harry’s voice carried over the Cobourg hills Always joking with his wide open smile Giving with his heart was his only style He was a teacher and loved to watch us grow Always planting seeds wherever he did go Lived alone all his life was the way it was to be Working hard to help his friends and family They say his heart went before its time Stricken by loneliness behind his sigh Maybe the laughter hid what was truly there A large man with lots of love but no one to share Hard Rock Harry I guess you had to go Dust to Dust On the wind your ashes will flow….

Two people in love walking hand in hand Facing life together doing what they can Uniting hearts together, it's clear to see Love shines forever into eternity Two people in love kneeling hand in hand Comforting each other doing what they can By helping out each other with honesty and care Through the times of sorrow both are willing to bear Their minds have come together Their souls have found each other Deep within their hearts Two people in love tightly holding hands Living life together united they stand Devoting lives forever with both joys and tears Staying close together to face the many years

When you fly away from home The southern city lights await When you leave behind the midnight sun You’ll arrive at the gate, B 18 When you walk up the ramp, Whether early or late Pass the smiles of the flight crew You’ve arrived at the gate, B 18 There you’ll see your friends and neighbors Getting ready to start their course Leave behind the big city For the peace and calm of old Whitehorse When you’re ready to come back home You sit down in the lounge to wait For the orange tail bird to roll in You know you’re at the gate, B 18

G A D When the mind fills with fear, the heart may grow cold G A D It can happen to anyone both young and old G A Bm But fight against the hatred you've been shown G A D Open your hearts and you will behold G A D Build a longer table not a higher wall G A D Open the doors for those who call G A Bm The bounty of this world is for us all G A D build a longer table not a higher wall G A D Let go of protecting what you think you own G A D Give up what you can and all that you have sewn G A Bm Greed is a heavy, fear laden stone, G A D That will leave you hungry and all alone G A D Build a longer table not a higher wall G A D Open the doors for those who call G A Bm The bounty of this world is for us all G A D build a longer table not a higher wall A G From the bombed out streets of Aleppo A Bm To the shores of Greece they come and they go A G All they want to do is live in peace Bm They say to you A They say to me G Help us please...Help us please G A D Build a longer table not a higher wall G A D Open the doors for those who call G A Bm The bounty of this world is for us all G A D build a longer table not a higher wall

In one moment, it hits me A slap across my naked face. Steals my breath from its warm heartbeat Placed into this cold dark space of 38 Below Crystals float across my sight line Ice fog hides the lonesome trail Light struggles for existence Against the darkness that prevails at 38 Below Every now and then The sky will open up and send Shimmering green waves of light Part of their own northern right at 38 Below I struggle to understand it The searing pain of freezing skin Each step a further distance Ending from where I begin I must learn to accept it Move through it’s bitter wall As black raven soars above me I’m warmed by his echoed call at 38 Below

She left you alone she went and died She left you too soon without saying goodbye Now you sit alone in that hollow room Things look bad and ol’ Basil sings the blues You needed her to see you through You wonder now whatcha’ going to do Just like the sun without the moon Things look bad and ol’ Basil sings the blues You needed her to read and write And now she’s gone it doesn’t seem quite right She left you alone she went and died Left you in your rocker wondering why Feelin’ like the sun without the moon Things look bad and ol’ Basil sings the blues She left you alone she went and died She left you too soon without saying goodbye Now you sit alone in that hollow room Things look bad and ol’ Basil sings the blues
