Gurudeva

"The lines say it all, I guess."

Gurudeva 5.40 (1988)

(oh I
I can dimly recall
what went on before
before I was born
how can I tell you
oh how I feel
when I realise
I found a long lost friend)

In order to keep this CD within reasonable (time)limits, minutes of music had to be sacrificed here and there. This first verse of the song has been left out on this album.)

o sometimes I can vaguely sense
the sweet fragrance
the sweet fragrance of Shamballah
how can I tell you
o what goes on
behind the veil
behind the veil of Maya

I could talk give information
but it's really all so far beyond our grasp
if I could paint I'd give you colours
but I can only live
and I can only love (give)
in sound
oh we know
we've all been here before
I know I banged my head
again and again
How can I tell you
o how I suffered
through lifetime and lifetime
through ages and ages

o I know it's time
it's time to start to build the bridge
to cross the river
to cross the river of time
how can I tell you
o how it feels
to be flying surrounded by angels
to be flying

I could talk etc.

o Master I know You guide me
o hold my hand hold both my hands
don't let me go wrong
I need You o how I need You
and I know it won't be long
before You'll take me home
I need You
and I know it won't be long Gurudeva
before You'll lead me home
I know it won't be long Gurudeva
before You'll guide me home
