Lion’s Head Dragon’s Wing Sailing Boat Imagining Holding Hands Whisper Loud Point Up To Palette of Sky and Cloud Abound You Were Five With Bluest Eyes I’d Ever Seen With No Cares We’d Lie Down on the Green Ground Chorus: Clouds and Blue Sky Clouds, You and I We Shared Our Lives

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….

Leave Regina Winnipeg bound Darkened Skies Swallow the ground White lines on the road Mesmerize Lead me on Prairie Moon….Prairie Moon…. Prairie Moon….Prairie Moon…. From the day’s dying sun Liminal Without question I wander where it leads Uncertain On these paved starlit seas Stars hang from inverted bowl I am insignificant Yet, I am whole Placed below this specter of light I wish you Were with me here tonight

In the midst of the darkness In the midst of the rage Third eye: light of reflection Stares the face of our age There is no longer middle There is no longer an end In the thread bare pockets of justice There is no more to spend Chorus Look away to our past Look away to our past With the healing smoke Of sweet grass What is real between us? As we hide behind slogan/sign We can’t keep up the smoke and mirrors That has ravaged human kind Come back down to the center Where soul meets the heart Away from the star bright illusion With new birth and a new start What we’ve done to each other Fills my heart with disgrace For profit margined idealism At what price, cost and waste Look at the old native hearts Spirit filled with cleansing view Treat ourselves with dignity For these old have something new

Tout ce que je veux c’est être vrai Laissez tomber vos façades Même si il ya la douleur Lutter ses peurs, ses dépendances Même si elles réponds a vos besoins Mon âme se retrouvera une maison Tout au bout de mon chemin All I want is to be real drop your facades even if there is pain fighting fears, addictions even if they respond to your needs my soul will find a home at the end of my way

Two people in Love Walk hand in hand Face life together And do what they can United hearts together It’s clear for all to see Love shines forever Into eternity Two people in love Kneel hand in hand Comfort each other And do what they can Help out each other With honesty and care Through the times of sorrow Both will to bear Two people in love Tightly hand in hand Live life together United they stand Devote their lives forever With joy and with tears Remain close together To face the many years Their minds Their minds Have come together Their souls Their souls Have found each other Deep within their hearts
