The Final Frontier

Verse 1
Night, we’re shielded from the rays of the sun
away from the source, the warmth to come.
facing infinity, the distant starlight
Cosmic candles, sustaining our sight

Verse 2
Glowing lamps, tall towers of light
few literal dark places, different fears to fight
a blaze of brilliance, except in our sleep
What do we dream of, what visions we keep

Chorus
Listen for dreams as day follows night
welcome the dusk and dawn will excite
find your now, let tomorrow appear
The final frontier is Time and it’s right here

Verse 3
Day, we bask in the rays of the sun
dazzled by the light from dark to come
we face the future, tomorrow, today
The vibrations of a life we’ve yet to play

Chorus
Listen for dreams as day follows night
Welcome the dusk and dawn will excite
find your now, let tomorrow appear
The final frontier is Time and it’s right here

Bridge
A time, a place, sliding doors and choices
Our heartbeat, the metronome to other voices
beyond and beneath, inside unafraid
The space where unconscious decisions are made

Chorus
Listen for dreams as day follows night
Welcome the dusk and dawn will excite
find your now, let tomorrow appear
The final frontier is Time and it’s right here



Lyrics Sheena Hope

The Final Frontier

The Fire

Verse 1
Do you still hope to meet “The One”?
That romcom staple for the young
or not so old, or not so single
we swipe, we post, we drink, we mingle

Chorus
That fierce flamboyant fabulous fire
This love we’re sold, we seek, inspire
all consuming, blazing bright
Our shield against the fading light


Verse 2
Maybe you’re waiting, scared of the spark
More afraid to burn than of the dark
Don’t be shy, just walk your own track
until you discover love reflects back

Chorus
That fierce flamboyant fabulous fire
This love we’re sold, we seek, inspire
all consuming, blazing bright
Our shield against the fading light


Verse 3
We’re all searching, in our own way
Just trying to cast life’s original play
I hope you’re lucky, I hope you’ve found
That connection, your silence in sound


Bridge
time, experience and maturity lessen
the chase, the hunt, the great obsession
finding peace via true loves ramble
There’s the warmth that’s worth the gamble


Chorus
That fierce flamboyant fabulous fire
This love we’re sold, we seek, inspire
all consuming, blazing bright
Our shield against the fading light

Verse 4
You may choose and be happy solo
or where you walk, someone will follow
As darkness falls, lay down your armour
Our lives revealed by the fading embers


Last Chorus
That fierce flamboyant fabulous fire
This love we’re sold, we seek, inspire
but finding peace via true loves ramble
There’s the warmth that’s worth the gamble

Lyric Sheena Hope

The Fire

Love Wins

Verse 1
With twenty- twenty vision, the way is clear
when the volumes down low, what do you hear?
the scales have fallen on my quiet ground
I hold my breath and look around

Chorus
Since I’ve found you, I’m a loser to Love
total surrender is my winning move
I laid myself bare, cast into your fate
In the war for love it’s never too late

Verse 2
Our ripples in life, they will resonate
across waters of the world, we create
with negative thinking, negative acts
we’ll never be happy, never relaxed

Chorus

Verse 3
cynics sneer, how uncool, to be kind
but in my eyes, you’re the hottest find
Always gentle, you’re that better person
I’m trying hard to unlearn my lesson

Bridge
you have saved me with love
you have saved me with kindness
time erodes all, but love powers through
my true north, the whole worlds our view

last verse
The volumes down low, I know what I hear
with twenty- twenty vision, the way is clear
the scales have fallen on my quiet ground
I’ll breathe easier with you around

Chorus

Mountain climb
Chorus
I look at my life and the decisions I have made
Regrets I take with me all the way to the grave
I know that no prayers can turn back time
Cause my heart starts each day with a mountain climb
----

I think of you always, as often as I breathe
It’s involuntary without a reprieve
The pain of our parting is still there today
And time is an enemy carrying you away

----chorus

Do you hate me I wonder or think of me still.
The years of silence haunt me and always will
Inside is a hollow that is shaped just like you
God knows this ache can still break me in two

----chorus

I hope that you’re happy and blessed with good things.
I will love you forever whatever life brings.
In my heart I rehearse conversations with you
But my mouth can’t deliver what I know to be true.
-----chorus

Still while I am breathing I hope for the best
You’re here on this planet and for that I am blessed
We don’t have any contact and that’s not ok
But you’re in my heart always and that’s where you’ll stay
-----
Last chorus
I look at my life and the decisions I have made
Regrets I take with me all the way to the grave
I know that my prayers never turned back time
But some days the mountain is easier to climb

Lyrics Sheena Hope

Notes ( I thought this could have a melancholy bare feel to start but becoming lighter and richer towards the last verse)

Mountain Climb

Please be optimistic, start walking in defiance
be proud to confound that cynical reliance
shared optimism, like love it is contagious
Watch the road grow brighter, be courageous

Chorus
We’re striding from the shadows
We can see the path extend
We’re almost out the woods now
We’re allowing hope to trend



Life’s overhanging branches will snag on misery
Try to keep smiling till the leaves fall harmlessly
It’s a walk of defiance, for that view beyond the trees
facing the future, sunshine on the breeze


Chorus


The quicksand of indifference,
It will always bring you down
and the path of least resistance
is where that sand is found

Chorus


Please stay optimistic, keep walking in defiance
be proud to confound that cynical reliance
Spread optimism, like love it is contagious
Watch the road grow brighter, be courageous

Chorus

Lyric Sheena Hope

The Walk of Defiance

TODAY

The sun comes up on another day
tomorrow starts early, but it won’t stay
the sun will go down on another today
each precious moment just slipping away



each heartbeat, each breath, the rhythm within
to not wring every minute of life, what a sin
Life passes us by as we gaze at our feet
Lift your head and walk, then the path is complete


Why do we talk of “spending” time?
Cause the currency of life is a special thing
It is worth much more when we give it away
You can never buy time no matter what they say


One day I will look back on my time
and wish I’d enjoyed more loving of mine
family, friends that’s where the light shone
Cause work will just replace me after I’ve gone


Lyrics Sheena Hope

Today

The Power of Leaves


What do you see, look along the path?
Always forward searching for light
or reaching skyward, for the stars out of sight
forever the dark forest is left and right
We’re beating our path, blind to the trees
but only love has the power of leaves

We clear our space; we grow then expand
There’s always endeavour, in our homeland
A decorative tree, lonely forests that fall
our insatiable yearning to have it all


community creatures, we sentients are
There’re no forest families, don’t be bizarre
We conquered their shadows to stand in the sun
Masters of the earth and we’re not done

But still minds reach out to a touch within
visualising slowly the power of green
We breathe in, then we breathe out
The scent of the forest, in its sounds we swim


What do you hear? Walk along the path
Are you listening or searching for light
or reaching skyward, for the stars out of sight
When the old forest was left and right
Still beating our path, ignoring the trees,
Yet only love has the power of leaves


Lyrics Sheena Hope

The Power of Leaves

Hold On

The world slowed down for a couple of months
some got a glimpse of the peace we knew once
We’re connected by gravity, spinning us slow
but hold on tight, cause we sometimes let go


We listened to music, forgot the limelight
the path that glitters, was not quite so bright
We listened past noise, the promise of gold
We held on tight, watched love unfold


The company of others, it’s the new deal
keeping things simple, keeping things real
We’re connected by gravity, spinning us slow
but hold on tight, cause we sometimes let go


Chorus
We’re pretty amazing, when we try, what we do
the energy that’s there for me and for you
We’re connected by gravity, spinning us slow
just hold on tight to the love that you know



Understatement is my most favourite art
It’s that quiet pull, felt in your heart
smell and taste, the rain on your tongue
We’re connected by gravity, spinning as one



The world slowed down for a couple of months
some got a glimpse of the peace we knew once
We’re connected by gravity, spinning us slow
but hold on tight, cause we sometimes let go
