Ingwe Impande This album, and Songstress have helped bring so much joy, love, healing and peace to my existence. This album has helped me find my voice again and provided hours of entertainment on the road with my 4 year old - He loves Natures song, knows almost all the words (even has a go at the spanish bits) and requests it every time we get into the car. so much love and gratitude. Honestly one of the greatest blessings on this journey so far. Music fills me to the top ;) <3

Rochelle Sumeray Wonderful Creation!!

Drenched in the beautiful spring sunshine of the dappled light of trees, the most relaxing, mesmerising atmospheric sound of Susie’s exquisite vocals and evocative lyrics has totally touched and lifted me. Thank you.

    It brings me so much joy to share my debut solo album with you,
    after such an incredible recording journey rich with teachings and inspiration.

    With these songs, a decade of my life in music form, I send a prayer out to the world that we may greet each miracle on this Earth with fresh eyes and a grateful heart. May we live, speak and sing Truth.

    Giving so much thanks to this album for wanting to be born, thank you for teaching me patience.

    Such a big thank you to Michael Stanton for co-creating this album with me, for pouring his dedication and inspirational musicianship into the songs and sticking with this for 2.5 years.

I plan strength I topple sideways clearing my bench I heard my name Trembling tall trees searching the skies And when I came I swam from the headlands carrying torches You’re the same Under the shell now whispering secrets Chorus: I once knew a silver city Down by the water’s edge Help me find my coral footprints The swamps have swallowed to their depths I’ll show you towers turned of oak wood The great white horses home I hope that you don’t turn the light on I hope that I’m not alone I plan change I wake from the inside, sleep on the train Sink my teeth Forget my manners, blame it on me I write it down Capture nothing but swollen clouds And turn your head Think you don’t see me splashing around ​Chorus

Angels of light Carry me, oh carry me Angels of light The path of freedom’s flight So take my growing dream Winds of music plant the seed Ever changing tides below us Song-lines running deep Chorus: Rise up sun now within us all River of love flow through my soul Ancient ways learned from the earth A new day dawning, a bright new birth Here we are humanity Choosing how our change will be Standing strong in our sovereignty ​Angels of peace Heal the mind quieten the seas Angels of peace Weaving song-lines through the leaves Turning seasons, shadow falling Silent valley, deepest breathing White water ever calling Calling to the heart Chorus x 2

Seekers, you shall find Seekers, you shall find Be brave in your suffering And choose evolution Take time in your contemplation And you shall find Seekers, you shall find Seekers, you shall find Aspiration is the flower of our souls And ask it shall be given A tree by its fruits it shall be known Seekers, you shall find Seekers, you shall find Looking deep, looking deep Diving No need to speak, no need to speak ‘Cause I’m diving Looking deep, looking deep Diving No need to speak, no need to speak ‘Cause I’m diving I ask nothing in return for this love And I ask nothing in return for this love I ask nothing in return for this love And I ask nothing in return for this love There is nowhere to run There is nowhere to hide Everything that I seek I can find it inside There is nowhere to run There is nowhere to hide Everything that I seek I can find it inside There is nowhere to run There is nowhere to hide Everything that I seek I can find it inside There is nowhere to run There is nowhere to hide oh Seekers, you shall find Seekers, you shall find ​Seekers, you shall find Seekers, you shall find

She’s calling us to wake up She’s asking us to take off our shoes She’s unconditional love She’s joy, she’s our living muse United we stand, when we realise We’re not separate from the land I will open my eyes Chorus: And sing nature’s song Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo Sing nature’s song Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo She’s inviting us to breathe in Sail a timeless tide And take it back to the beginning But this time with a conscious mind United we stand, when we realise We’re not separate from the land I will open my eyes Chorus One by one everyone comes to remember We’re healing the world one heart at a time One by one everyone comes to remember We’re healing the world, one heart, at a time Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo One heart at a time Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo No se vende la tierra no se vende No se vende la tierra no se vende La tierra no se vende Se ama se defiende La tierra no se vende Se ama se defiende Son guerreros del luz Hermanos del sol Viajeros del tiempo del ritmo y la materia Son guerreros del luz Hermanos del sol Viajeros del tiempo del ritmo y la materia ​One by one everyone comes to remember We’re healing the world one heart at a time One by one everyone comes to remember We’re healing the world, one heart, at a time Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo One heart at a time Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo Chorus One by One lyrics by Michael Stillwater Spanish lyrics by Rosana Jamenez

Under the earth they were hiding Heartbeats on crumbling stone Cloaked was the woman that protects them But they know their fate will come One family Escaping across the desert sands Too hot to breathe A fight of faith binds their hands ​Cutting the sands blow against them The wind throws her hair across her face A child she is with a secret The sun beats merciless on her grace One family Escaping across the desert sands Too hot to breathe A fight of faith binds their hands To the book of love To the book of love One final prayer the two were granted A kiss as tender as a dove All watched their end but their daughter She had fled to carry the word of love One family Escaping across the desert sands Too hot to breathe A fight of faith binds their hands ​To the book of love To the book of love

The ripples of time unfold The wondrous crown I hold In the secrets of my heart The ripples turn to gold The ripples turn to gold Bright lady of the flowers Your weaving brings music to the hours All of creation is held in your hand Like patterns in the sand Like patterns in the sand The light grows brighter and fades away Sunshine turns to rain Everything changes and all things must die And all things must live again Yes all things must live again Bright lady of the flowers Your weaving brings music to the hours All of creation is held in your hand Like patterns in the sand Like patterns in the sand The light grows brighter and fades away Sunshine turns to rain Everything changes and all things must die And all things must live again Yes all things must live again All things must live again

Listen deeply A flame in the centre of the storm She sings in silence Inside the ocean of my soul ​Voices rise and weapons fall and Nations unite, across the world and Songs of peace at the heart of every land

Come wind and come rain Come time a turning Come circle me again Come fires burning From four corners of the earth And meet me in the middle Come death and come birth For I am light and shadow Come light from furthest star Mystery unfolding Come show us who we are Rising sun beholding The wisdom of the seeds Where all is born within me The whispers of the trees sing I am all and nothing Chorus: Courage lead me to the flames Paint ashes on my skin and Phoenix guide me through the fire That I might rise again and Calling out to the wind To teach me to dissolve Into this beating heart again Come crashing ocean waves Salty treasure keeper Come singing spirits caves Teach me to go deeper Wind blow me into dusk And plant me in the river Show me how to trust For I am gift and giver Courage lead me to the flames Paint ashes on my skin and Phoenix guide me through the fire That I might rise again and Calling out to the wind To teach me to dissolve Into this living earth again This breathing earth again This breathing heart again El viento lleva me El fuego limpia me Gran espiritu Enseñar me enseñar me Chorus

Music if I could see you You’d blind me so for all that you are Music if I could touch you You’d run in gold to my heart With every note, you sing to me louder With every breath, I fall into thee deeper And music if I could taste you I’d swallow the world and never be full Music if could paint you I’d open the eyes of all the people With every note, you sing to me louder With every breath, I fall into thee deeper Music if I could plant you The fruits you bare would heal my pain Music if I could carve you Your shape would twist and fold and change With every note, you sing to me louder With every breath, I fall into thee deeper ​Music if I could sing you I’d show the world all that you are Music if I could share you I’d bring all the people’s love together!

Just as your thumbnail can cover the sun, so can a concept hide the truth Hoarding the things that we once learned, back in our youth Dragging them with us a drop in the ocean oh give me expanding crashing waves These simplified theories so solid tomorrow Will only fade away Will only fade, will only fade away We think that we know where we’re coming from, we think we’ve evolved two million years on We should be more concerned with where we’re going to now What about the subatomic things that you can’t see with a microscope or a camera lens? What about the force that lies beyond them? Holds us together, keeps the world turning The threads that keep us learning, learning Chorus: I am wise When I am sure I know nothing Anything that’s tied down is lies Every question is living I let it in ‘cos it just is She fills me through I hear her breathing A thousand leaves sing for peace and I am with them A thousand leaves sing for peace and I am with them There is no need to go back to the Stone Age we can amalgamate technology with nature to accelerate The rate at which we purify the air and rebuild this beauty, for our children to share Because these new discoveries are of magic, magic so rare What about the songs we sing with our loved ones? Are they extinct ‘cos we’re lost in our screens What about the children shooting in their 2D reality, desensitised, sensitivity Heading for a self-destructive territory evolutionary static ‘cos we’re at it for mathematical glory From the embers of catastrophe rises the phoenix from the flame From the ashes spring the green shoots ready to restart the game Regain consciousness, Mama bless Chorus A thousand leaves we sing for peace x 8 Chorus A thousand leaves still will sing when I am gone A thousand leaves they will sing Salaam Shalom Salaam Shalom Salaam - Peace in Arabic Shalom - Peace in Hebrew

Painting visions on the horizon Waves keep coming, we keep on dreaming Painting visions for our children Tides keep turning, we keep on singing Repeat Chorus: I’m going under, to sing with the whales Beneath the crashing waves Oh the beauty of your grace I’m going under, where freedom can be found Singing in the deep blue Swimming in your sound Repeat Creatures of the deep ayeye aye x 4 The water goes deep and the winds grow strong To carry this love, to guide us home Oh the waters go deep and the winds grow strong To carry this love, to guide us home Repeat x 2 Oh the waters go deep and the winds grow strong To carry this love Chorus x 2 Creatures of the deep ayeye aye x 4 I offer flowers to your waters With petals of the heart May you always be protected I offer flowers on your ocean alter With petals of forgiveness May we all remember I offer flowers to your waters With petals of the heart May you be protected I offer flowers on your ocean alter With petals of forgiveness May we all remember ​These creatures of the deep ayeye aye x 4
