about

This is a transformational/devotional song of sorts, and one of the first complete songs I've ever written. It's about my process undergoing a dramatic life change and how I'm wanting to honor myself in this new year of 2012.

lyrics

Dear Universe, be my guide
please be there by my side
your daughter needs you
she's giving up control

Dear Universe, this is it
surrendering as you see fit
your dragonfly
wants to fly back home

Shall I spread my wings
or wait for things to flow
help me out
I'm in my mind, you know
it's no way to go

So many hopes and dreams
breaking through fears and schemes
letting go, giving space
trust in you will set my pace
oh show me how
to live in the here and now

Dear inner-self, have some faith
I hope to grow with ease and grace
that's my intention
please help to light the way

Dear inner-self, I'm stepping out
I'll liberate without a doubt
I'll close my eyes
breathe you in and say

I came from love
and up above, and beyond
Here I am
and with my magic wand
create what I want

So many hopes and dreams
breaking through fears and schemes
letting go, giving space
trust in you will set my pace
oh show me how
to live in the here and now

Soon I will find my way
till then I'll live for today
Experience all that's pure
a future I will soon secure
this is my vow
to live in the here and now

here and now
here and now
here and now

about

Amy VS Portland, Oregon

My passion for indie rock music led me to record with the world-renowned duo Matmos and perform as a guest artist for Portland's own Alameda. Other appearances include several musical theater venues, the Moussai Ensemble, Classical Revolution PDX, and the Imani Winds Chamber Music Festival hosted at the Juilliard School. Thanks to bandcamp.com this is my first attempt at singing/songwriting. ... more
