Originally called, "Currents," this track really came alive with the contributions of the wonderfully subtle percussion of Jesse Brooke and the tasteful piano contributed by Galen Clark. The song was composed shortly after the devastating Tsunami that struck S.E. Asia.


Refrain: When the feelin’ is right you don’t have to open your mouth wide
You can tell her everything with your eyes
Currents of our minds slip silently entwined stream of golden light
Endless ebb and flow of the tides feelin’ mellow
We could be taken by the waves tonight
Keep a lookout for the source and let me know what you find
Along the way, there is so much more to this world than meets the eye

Sun it came pourin’ through my window, in the month of May
Now those clouds just keep rollin’ in
There doesn’t seem to be an end
Ways you move me
You caught me by surprise, when everything was turned upon its side
We caught a glance of each other in a different light
There was somethin’ in the air
Now things they don’t seem so clear
What do we really have to fear?

You know I can start to believe in a little magic
Remember when we stepped outside
Into the calmness, that fading night
We were filled with the hope of a new inspiration
Now the past is not too far-gone
Still we have to find a way to keep movin’ on
You know I’d like to linger in this world a little bit longer
Just a little bit longer

Let me know, well I’ll ask you what you know
Let me know, let me know what you find
