When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near 
When she tells the wind her story When she tells the wind her story Beauty becomes her as if she was the reason for the word Yet unto to herself her beauty is a song she’s never heard All alone she cries in a prison of doubt Begging for the key but only she can let herself out Lisa Renee Lisa Renee Lisa Renee Lisa Renee When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near When she tells the wind her story When she tells the wind her story When she tells the wind her story Her dance can put fire to shame One of her tears is a million nights of rain Her laugh makes the sun to shine brighter Her cry, the moon to wain And still to her love thyself is a song from a foreign tongue From a land where songs are never ever ever sung. Lisa Renee Lisa Renee Lisa Renee Lisa Renee When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near 
When she tells the wind her story When she tells the wind her story

Tried running from myself But everywhere I went There I was Blame used to be my game But now I see that I was my only enemy As I'm falling, falling again Falling, falling again When will I learn? Said I'm falling, falling again How many times By the same fire must I burn? 'Cause I'm falling, falling again When will I learn? When will I learn? 'Cause I'm falling, falling again Looks like the devil's placing his bets On my life again This battle's my own I've got to fight it All alone, my friend Like the waves from a tireless ocean These phantoms come against me It's only now that I see I created this reality And now I'm falling, falling again When will I learn? Said I'm falling, falling again How many times by the same fire must I burn 'Cause I'm falling, falling again When will I learn? When will I learn? 'Cause I'm falling, falling again Self doubt overcomes me Like rain on dead leaves once again Oh god, I'm down like I've never been It was from free choice My voice spoke the sin Gotta write my wrong And sing a new song 'Cause I'm falling, falling again When will I learn? Said I'm falling, falling again When will I learn? Said I'm falling, falling again How many times by the same fire must I burn 'Cause I'm falling, falling again When will I learn? When will I learn? When will I learn? Falling, falling again When will I learn? Why must I burn? When will I learn? Why must I burn 
'Cause I'm falling, falling again

Who among us Who among you Wasn't born to learn Didn't come to learn? Who among us Who among you Can cast the first stone? Who among us Who among you Didn't come to learn Wasn't born to learn? Who among us Who among you Throwers of stones Ones who sit on false throwns Is the truth something That anyone can own? And so Who among us Who among you Wasn't born to learn Didn't come to learn? Who among us Who among you Can cast the first stone? Who among us Who among you Didn't come to learn Wasn't born to learn? Who among us Who among you And in the bitter cup To those who thirst for sweet water Are we the vessels Or are we the potter And who among us didn't come to learn And Who among us Who among you Wasn't born to learn Didn't come to learn? Who among us Who among you Can cast the first stone? Who among us Who among you Didn't come to learn Wasn't born to learn? Who among us Who among you Yearning for sweet water You and me the bitter cup When its the hand of love Not the fist of commandments That can lift me up And I say Who among you Who among us Didn't come to learn Wasn't born to learn Who among us Who among you Wasn't born to learn Can cast the first stone Who among us Who among you Didn't come to learn Wasn't born to learn Who among you Who among us Judgers who cry without passion You lighting flint below water We are the vessels Not the potter And so I say Who among us Who among you Wasn't born to learn Didn't come to learn? Who among us Who among you Can cast the first stone? Who among us Who among you Didn't come to learn Wasn't born to learn? Who among us Who among you

Calling all angels and ancestors, oh We seem to be, oh, of a lost race Calling all angels and ancestors, oh We seem to be, oh, from a forgotten place Is faith the only thing that will save me from This pool I'm drowning in Oh, confusion, leave me be Blinding me from who I was born to be Go and go, go and go, go and go To where the ancestral waters flow Grow and go, go and go, go and go To where the ancestral waters flow Go and go, go and go, go and go To where the ancestral waters flow Calling all angels and ancestors, oh We seem to be, oh, from a forgotten place Calling all angels and ancestors, oh And further we go Go and go, go and go, go and go We all go To where the ancestral waters flow Is faith the only thing that will save me from This pool I'm drowning in Oh, confusion, leave me be Blinding me from who I was born to be Calling all angels and ancestors, oh We seem to be, oh, of a lost race Calling all angels and ancestors, oh Is it that we've all come from a forgotten place?

She takes me She takes me away She takes me away Far far away She takes me away And where she takes me, she won't say She takes me She takes me away Far far away She takes me Like ships drawn by sirens from the bay She takes me, she takes me away Far, far away She takes me Even Kings have been her prey She takes me, she takes me away Far, far away She takes me away When I go I can't remember where I've been She turns me inside out Then outside in Over and over, again and again Armies will battle her But she'll always win Hell, fire or holy water I'm easy fader for the slaughter (Shona) She takes me away, she takes me away, she takes me away Far far away She takes me away And where I go not even I can say She takes me, she takes me away Far, far away She takes me I try to run but her song makes me to stay She takes me, she takes me away Far, far away She takes me Like ships drawn by sirens from the bay She takes me, she takes me away Far, far away She takes me Words are useless She always has the last say She takes me, she takes me away Far, far away She takes me As I'm drowning in this holy water I watch as the
