Opoutere 06:14
Oh my love, run with me Hand in hand we’ll go to an ancient land where te tui serenade the sun We used to run between the pine trees And oh this moon, she saw me bloom exhale trouble of the world I knew At least I have here to be and at last I can clearly breathe Yeah Now it’s our turn to bathe in the sunset and you can use my heart as a head rest What a beautiful place, what a beautiful face and we can laugh at the shapes our bodies make These are constellations I can trace Oh I’m awake I have grown this love from a seed now it’s a forest that meets the sea I have spent my life at the beach Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Tipi smoke burning low rise with the sunlight, breathe like the tide We’re alive. Oh I’m alive Sacred land, I call her home One day I hope to stand here an old man with a big, white beard and grandchildren free of fear Oh and it’s safe to say that I miss her The banks just compounded the pressure How can she be owned? How can land be owned? But the fire still warms our cold feet Drums echo the same great heartbeat Oh I believe I have grown this love from a seed now it’s a forest that meets the sea I have spent my life at the beach Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie, hey I have grown this love from a seed now it’s a forest that meets the sea I have spent my life on this beach Ohui, Ohui ie, ie, ie Opoutere, Ohui ie, ie, ie Opoutere, Ohui ie, ie, ie Opoutere, Ohui ie, ie, ie Opoutere, Ohui I just woke up from the strangest dream I was you, and you were me Infinite family underneath these old trees

Breathe 03:48
I saw my reflection at the water’s edge next to a little white moon Now I’m kicking dust up inside my head In a little white room I’ll sit down and try to write a song but there’s just so much going on So I’ll drop down to my knees Slow down, breathe Let me be here Oh and I’m so overdue There’s so much shit that I’ve accrued I think mama earth showed me what to do cause when you’re here you know she got you Oh she got you, oh she got you Oh I’ll drop to my knees Slow down, breathe Let me be here Slow down, breathe, let me be Slow down, breathe, let me be Slow down, breathe, let me be free

Songbird 05:32
He was water Fell in love with the ocean He wanted to feel the oxygen burning in his lungs and I don’t know what I’ll become but I know I’m the love She was fire Burned him up with emotion, oh did she He needed the earth just to feel it underneath his own two feet He wanna breathe He sang I am the love that the world don’t shine enough of and you know I am the poison that’s cursing in my blood and it ain’t no crying shame that the world it knows my name Like a river running free or a songbird dressed in flame I’m on fire Burn me up with devotion won’t you please and I’ll never blame the jester for all the dirty tricks she pulled on me From one soul to another soul I gotta go and she gotta know it’s only industry She sings I am the love that the world don’t shine enough of and she says I am the poison that’s cursing in my blood and it ain’t no crying shame that the world it knows my name Like a river running free or a songbird dressed in flame I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love I am the love, I’m the love, I’m the love Oh I know that I am the love that this world has so much more than enough of We’re made of the stuff And it ain’t no crying shame that this earth one day will know our names Like a river running free or a songbird dressed in flame Like the river running so free or a songbird dressed in flame I am the river running free and I am the love that will bloom again
