1. End This Night

From the recording Purple Flowers

I wrote this after my treatment. After all my concern over what I would lose vocally, I was floored that somehow this high note came out of my throat. It was shaky and uncentered, but there in a way it had not been before. I added another 1/2 verse after I was back home and thinking it needed a little more to it. The harmonies and call-backs came about 15 minutes before we had to finish our recording session. Which is a miracle in itself, ask anyone who's needed me to sing harmony for them :-)


I can see a day
When the morning comes,
And no one's scared
Of their dark..

I can see a day
When the love light's shining,
In everybody's eyes..

I can see a day
When there's no more war,
We stop this fight...

No more sickness,
No child dies too young,
No one grows old alone..

I see You...
I see You, end this night...

Release your inhibitions,
Open up your heart..
Dare yourself to be free,
To live, to love, to dance and to sing..
Join the chorus heaven rings
And be free
