Something New

Take me to another place…a separate Universe…In a parallel world,
aside from all the greed we see.
For this new world inside of me

Reflecting all Loves energy
You’ll find your truth inside you will.

Rise up in all this War
Indulge in your senses feel, feel, feel…the beauty to see you see!

For this New World inside of me.
Reflecting all Love eulogy, for the world the New World to be!

Take me for a ride, on something new, for a ride to something new
For a ride to something new…

The sky is cloudy blue, no war and we are all thriving…
Forming this new world..that started in our minds/hearts
Reflecting the beauty we see!
Find your peace and Will it free!

Take me for a ride, on something new, for a ride to something new
For ride…creating a New World!
So Alive!!…
So Alive!!
