Track Name: Let The Earth Be Sacred
I love the rain singing sweet melodies,
I love to see bees and flowers in the trees
I listen to the wind whenever I need some answers
I float weightlessly with the queen of the sea

Yeah I go to the sea, when I need some cleansing
I love to sing songs eternally appealing and
I love to dance, shake my body to the groove baby
I love to love myself and all of creation

Let the earth be sacred

I love to love and you know and you know I’m not concealing
Open up to bliss as the mystery’s revealing
Singin’ by the fire on a cool island evening,
heavens are reflecting in this moment there is oneness

Let the land be sacred
Let the sea be sacred
Let the sky be sacred
Let the earth be sacred 

Life is a holiday and love is the reason
Honor and respect to indigenous cultures
The power’s in the sharing of the old and new wisdom
Wake up and see there is no separation
Take care of Mother Earth, because she’s all providing, clean soil air and water for the future generations,
Put our the fires of this mindless consuming
Give what you can and only take you are using

E ala E…
E ala e, ka la i ka hikia
I ka moana, ka moana hohonu
Pi’i ka lewa, ka lewa nu’u
I ka hikina, aia ka la, e ala e

This song is gonna end so let’s come to a conclusion
What can we do to dispel all the illusion
Kindness is the word, purposeful conversation
The healing of the earth and the graceful reparations 

Let the land be sacred
Let the sea be sacred
Let the sky be sacred
Let the earth be sacred

I love the rain singing sweet melodies
I Love to see bees and flowers in the trees
Track Name: Under the Starlight (featuring Bill Nershi and Jilian Nershi)
Under the starlight, of a sweet hawaiian sky
I can hear the gecko sing
Watching the moon glow, shimmer on the sea
Waiting for you to arrive

Ah-ah Oh my sweet lady, together we can be

Feeling the sunshine-in rays of golden light
It’s very natural way
We’re an amoeba, drifting with the tide
That’s what we used to say

Always, together we can always find our way
Yeah babe, let’s let the ocean cleanse our pain away
Together we can be

Out on the highway, it’s just you and I
Love the way you live your life
Feeling the wind blow-in scents of flower lei
I’m so glad you are my wife

Right here, it doesn’t matter where we are
Right now, all of our troubles disappear
Together we can be

Under the starlight

Aah aah Your skin is like honey when I
I Don’t have much money but I
I want you to believe in me
Together we can be

Under the starlight, under the starlight, under the starlight Ah-ah

Under the starlight, of a sweet hawaiian sky
I can hear the gecko sing
Watching the moon glow, shimmer on the sea
My love it has arrived

Ah-ah...

Under the starlight, under the starlightu, under the starlight Ah-ah
Under the starlight, under the starlightu, under the starlight Ah-ah
Under the starlight, under the starlightu, under the starlight Ah-ah

Track Name: I Know Who I Am
Singing a we're dancing in a tenuous time
Giving invigoration for your body and your mind
The motion of the ocean is so clandestine
But if you nah-go rock the boat, you no-see the sea shine
Got to malama 'aina in-a dis-here prime time
Aloha one another, this a reflect-shine
Aloha one another, this a reflect-shine
I said Aloha one another, this a reflect-shine
The moment is the moment and the time is now
Take the time for your brother, kindness you got to show
Weather you're living in the city or down in the ghetto
If you're a shark in the water or an eagle rainbow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
'Cause we're living in a high-high time
Alive when the people waking up to realize
That if we keep sleeping we'll never see the sun rise
If we keep sleeping we'll never see the sun rise

I know who I am, who are you?
To judge me, I won't judge you
I know who I am, I am you
I am reflecting love back to you

So take your worries, and your concerns and thow them all away
A life of judgment, it could only, only bring you pain
So let it go now, let it flow, hate is such a drain
Choosing love we dance for freedom in the purifying rain

I know who I am, who are you?
To judge me, I won't judge you
I know who I am, I am you
I am reflecting love back to you

Here we are now, standing firm, on this earthly plane
Choosing love we dance for freedom in the purifying rain

Singing a we're dancing in a tenuous time
Giving invigoration for your body and your mind
The motion of the ocean is so clandestine
But if you nah-go rock the boat, you no-see the sea shine
Got to malama 'aina in-a dis-here prime time
Aloha one another, this a reflect-shine
Aloha one another, this a reflect-shine
I said Aloha one another, this a reflect-shine
'Cause the moment is the moment and the time is now
Take the time for your sister, kindness you got to show
Weather you're living in the city or down in the ghetto
If you're a shark in the water or an eagle rainbow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
It is a reality, Jah-Jah wind is gonna blow
'Cause we're living in a high-high time
Alive when the people waking up to realize
That if we keep sleeping we'll never see the sun rise
If we keep sleeping we'll never see the sun rise

repeats: I know who I am, who are you?
To judge me, I won't judge you
I know who I am, I am you
I am reflecting love back to you

Take your worries, and your concerns and thow them all away
See yourself in the beauty of each passing day

Here we are now, standing firm, on this earthly plane
Choosing love we dance for freedom in the purifying rain

I know who I am, who are you?
To judge me, I won't judge you
I know who I am, I am you
I am reflecting love back to you

Blissed and not dissed, greased up my shoulders, slippin' of boulders
There is no stone that we carry alone with Jah in our hearts

Track Name: Let Her Breathe
No one owns the sun
No one owns the moon
No one owns the Mother
The Mother of us all

The Mother plants the seeds
For us to help them grow
So respect to the Mother
The Mother of our soul

Let her breathe, let her breathe
Let her breathe, let her breathe
Let her breathe, let her breathe

Give the ‘aina what she needs
Let her waters all run clean
From the mountain to the sea

No one owns the sun
No one owns the moon
No one owns the Mother

The Mother plants the seeds
For us to help them grow
So respect to the Mother
The Mother of our soul
Track Name: I Love Music
I love music, anytime it's around
I love music, it lifts me up and it calms me down
I just love music, it teaches the ways of the world
I just love music when I'm dancing with you girl.

Stiddly diddly dip dom dey, oh yeh, oh yeh eyeh eyeh
Stylee dylee dop dom day oh yeh


I love music, anytime it's around
I love music, it lifts me up and it calms me down
I just love music, it teaches the ways of the world
I just love music the healing vibrations of sound, singing

Stiddly...

What if we all sang the same song
Everyone in the whole world nation?
A song of truth and freedom
Would it ease some of the suffering?
Would it stop some of the fighting?
Quiet some of these tension?d
Bring about some uniting
Peace and a Holy Union

I love music, anytime it's around
I love music, it lifts me up and it calms me down
I just love music, it teaches the ways of the world
I just love music when I'm dancing with you girl.

Stiddly...

Stidly...
Track Name: Malala
Malala… Malala Yousafzai….
Malala Your name will never die
Malala Malala Yousafzai

What are the words we sing?
It is the name of a young girl
A hero for equal rights
With the courage of a lion
She grew up in Pakistan
Home of the Taliban

They destroyed the children’s school
Took away women’s right
But she would not stand down
She would not give up the fight
Better to live like a lion
Than a slave for a hundred years
(That’s what she said)

Malala

But there is a moment
When you have to choose
Whether to be silent
Or stand up for the truth
When every man was losing courage
A woman raised her voice

She said I have to speak
Sing dance and go to the market
A right to an education
And I will speak up about it
65 million women are standing with me


Well, The evil men warned her
Said she must be silent
They threatened to take her life
But she would never fear them
They shot Malala down
On her way to school

A grown man pulled the trigger
As they sat on the school bus
Trying to silence the voice
Of courage and resistance
Oh but the light of Jah prevailed
And she survived

Stand up for Freedom
Stand up for equal rights

Malala

We realized the importance of light
When we are faced with darkness
The power of our voice
When we are all are silenced
We believe in the strength and the power of our words

Today is the day for
Every boy and girl
Everyone who has stood up
Fought for equal rights
Strength courage and bravery
Is the meaning of her name

(Sing it with me)

Malala……

Stand up….

Malala
Track Name: Generations
I see the generations, like flowers in the wind
Like a rolling stone and grains of sand, where we all began
With the love of an angel, who's always by my side
I must've lived a thousand lives and I finally got it right
With the love of an angel, who's coming to my aid
I don't know just where I'm going but I know that I'm okay
Track Name: Simple Things
Simple things, simple things
Like a walk in the shine of the moon
Simple things like the wind and rain harmonizing a tune
Simple things, simple things, simple things

Simple things, simple things
You don't need any more than a few
Simple things, simple things
Like the rise and the fall of the moon
A smiling face, a warm embrace, the feeling of loving what's true
Simple things, simple things, simple things

It's a bridge from the old to the new
It's the melody's colors of blue
So when everything's closing on you
It's the simple things, it's the simple things

Simple things, simple things
Are a fountain of gold never dry
And you can see the colors meet though the sun and the rain in the sky
So never go on your day, without giving simple a try
Simple things, simple things, simple things

It's a bridge from the old to the new
It's the melody's colors of blue
So when everything's closing on you
It's the simple things, it's the simple things
