    Belong

    BELONG c  2002 Rahel (Ann Rachel Silverman-Limor

    Now the sun is rising in the East – ever slowly I arise

    From a peaceful slumber I have ceased – the daylight greets my eyes

    In the quiet of the early morn – birds sing their early morning song

    Catching moments just as they are born – yes, this is where I belong

     

    CHORUS:  And the wind whispers softly in my ear – telling stories only I can hear

    In these precious moments everything just seems so clear

    Yes, this is where I belong  –          yes, this is where I belong

     

    Now the sun is setting in the West – the sky is turning deeper shades of blue

    From the hustle bustle I can rest – and sing this loving song to you

     

                             CHORUS:  And the wind whispers softly in my ear – telling stories only I can hear

    In these precious moments everything just seems so clear

    Yes, this is where I belong  –          yes, this is where I belong

     

    Crickets chirping softly everywhere – oh how I love their song

    I breathe the sweetness of the evening air – yes, this is where I belong

     

    And the wind whispers softly in my ear – telling stories only I can hear

    In these precious moments everything just seems so clear

    Yes, this is where I belong  –          yes, this is where I belong

    Yes, this is where I belong  –          yes, this is where I belong

    Deja Vu

    DEJA VU  1997

    Isn't this what we've said before - in these very words? 

    Isn't this where we've stood before - isn't this absurd?

    Here we are now, as then, and ever more} x2


    Didn't I take your hand before - didn't you take mine? 

    Didn't we walk this way before - once upon a time? 

    Here we are now, as then, and ever more} x2


    Could it have been we've met before - some kind of deja vu? 

    Could it have been we've loved before - tried and almost true? 

    Here we are now, as then, and ever more} x2


    Here we are born again - here I am singing out to you. 

    Singing our song again - here I am singing it with you.

    Deja vu......

    Soul Solitary

    SOUL SOLITARY  2001  Myspace 

    In the midst of the lush summer green, and the golden brown orange of fall.

    I am but just one single soul. I am here in a desert.

    Extending my hand as I turn. Gazing in every direction.

    I’m lost in a strong gust of wind and I’m covered in dust.     

    Yet I feel I’ve been touched by the ALL. A presence in me I can feel.

    I call You to break down the walls. Please give me Your hand.

    Break me loose from this sleepy haze. Enveloped complete so am I.

    Standing alone in the dust. I hear no one answer.  

    Why must I stand here alone? Why must I touch no one? Why must I remain a soul solitary?     

    Humbled before You I kneel. So scattered. I hang my head.

    In silence I pray You will hear this prayer of the numb.

    For love surely I’m worthy still, of standing alone never more.

    I’m wanton of Your guiding hand; for strength and for courage.

    Why must I stand here alone? Why must I touch no one? Why must I remain a soul solitary

    The Gift

    THE GIFT 1997 ** AACI Songwriting Competition Winner


    Empty space and empty time - lead to rhythm and to rhyme

    When all I've got and all that's mine - I give to you - the gift

    In turning over all the pages - all the days that one engages

    All the wisdom of the ages - I give to you - the gift

    Where one can gather all the dreams - Of how it is and how it seems

    And question, still, what it all means - This is for you - the gift

    Sit humbly now as we grow old - collecting stories to be told

    We dare to be forever bold - we give to you - the gift

    When on that day, when in the end - When death is waiting 'round the bend

    It is in love we leave, my friend - We leave to you - the gift
