Dance Of The Wind

Dance of the WInd combines accordion, violin and guitar melodies with the beautiful sound of the dobro, mandolin and chimes to weave a wonderful matrix to blend with her crystalline clear voice. With magical arrangements and accompaniment of Marty Atkinson, Dave Hoffner and James Atkinson, the result is a contemplative look at the soul of a dedicated and talented songwriter.

We flowed like a river, rolled with the sea
We changed like the weather, stood like a tree
We bent with the branches, danced in the wind
We went way beyond our chances again and again
Blossoms in Springtime, a sweet mandolin
Like a band of Gypsy dancers, love comes again
Like a band of Gypsy dancers, love comes again
Love leaves it’s trace, sunlight through lace
Morning and mist, memories and grace
You are my talisman, you are my river bend
This is a journey, the Dance Of The Wind
Shades of shadows, birds on the wing
My heart is in this journey, in the Dance Of The Wind
My heart is in this journey, in the Dance Of The Wind
We flowed like a river, we rolled with the sea
Changed like the weather, stood like a tree
We fell with the rain, rose in mist
In the Dance Of The Wind, there is more than one first kiss
There is more than one first kiss

ALL IN TIME

The future is here if you’re going somewhere
Live in the past if you’ve got time to spare
I roll with the punches, I make up my own mind
With my heart beating steadily on the incline
All in time
Why don’t I feel alone, why don’t I fear the darkness
I only know because it’s all in time
Why don’t I look for cover even though lightning’s striking
I only know because it’s all in time
Every breath I am breathing echos in my mind
With my heart beating steadily on the incline
All in time, all in time
I’ve looked for direction inside a mirrored glass
I’ve seen the changes and it’s all in time
I’ve got to believe in something, gotta have faith and trust
Gotta let go and leave it all in time
Every breath I am breathing echos in my mind
With my heart beating steadily on the incline
All in time, all in time
Some people see the future, some people see the past
Better to feel because it’s all in time
How will I feel the answers when all I see is changing
I’m only here because it’s all in time
Every breath I am breathing echos in my mind
With my heart beating steadily on the incline
All in time, all in time

WHAT WOULD YOU DO

I could rush to your arms for every reason and rhyme
I could fall for your charms like it was the first time
I could be running from the past or losing my mind
What would you do, who would I find
What would you do this time
What would you do this time
If I let go with every kiss that you give
If I let you in all of the secrets I live
If I follow my heart and pray this is true
What would you do, who would I find
What would you do this time
What would you do this time
In a world that’s so uncertain how can we be sure
That the love we feel this moment is love that will endure
And if we had to live on trust alone Baby, that’s enough for me
Love would have a happy home, maybe that would be the key
If I listen to my heart and I pray this is true
What would you do, who would I find
What would you do this time
What would you do this time

IRISH WEDDING RING

The symbol of love in Ireland is a heart with a crown
Held in two hands
I thought about you and I thought about trust
I cried when I thought it was something we’d lost
I bought an Irish wedding ring in an antique store in Tennessee
I walked up and down a quiet street and I wrote this song
For you and me
And the symbol of love in Ireland
I wondered who first wore this wedding ring
Maybe a lady from Ireland
It must have been love and it must have been true
So I’ll wear it for luck like some people do
I bought an Irish wedding ring in an antique store in Tennessee
I walked up and down a quiet street and I wrote this song
For you and me
And the symbol of love in Ireland
May the road you walk be clear of stones
May it always lead you safely home
May Angels hover by your side
May you take the things of life in stride
I know I wish and dream a lot, maybe I expect too much
But if it’s fear that stole your heart away
Maybe dreams will bring you back some day

CIRCLES ROUND THE MOON

She listens to him play guitar and wonders as he sings
Does he know that he reminds her of the girl she used to be
She says she knows the songs by heart and so they do a tune
She follows him and sings her part
Sure as circles round the Moon
She’s thinking of the years gone by
Trying to hold onto her dreams
She let some go, she stayed behind cause she wanted to be free
He played guitar like a midnight train
Strong and steady through the mist and rain
They’ve always known, they know again, the music never ends
Did he see her dancing in the wind
Though time was standing still
For certain dreams there is no end, dream again she always will
Lucky is as lucky does, it’s all in how you play
Make a wish, forgive the past, what you really want will stay
She’s thinking of the years gone by like beads on her rosary
She let some fall, she broke the line cause she wanted to be free
He played guitar like a midnight train
Strong and steady through the mist and rain
They’ve always known, they know again, the music never ends
They’ve always known, they know again, the music never ends

THE REASON FOR MY TEARS

I listen to James Taylor cause he reminds me of you
And the trip we took to Breckinridge
The sky was so clear and blue
We stopped in Topeka to see your sister’s new baby
And we kissed on some old deserted main street
We haven’t done that lately
I’d never said the things I said to you to anyone before
And my heart never was so happy
As when you walked through my door
When you said that you believed in me, I felt a trembling fear
That you were seeing through me to the reasons for my tears
You pointed to Orion and we counted his stars
Love was as new the baby and deep as a work of art
I was on a high horse, so sure I’d found the one
I was tossed by the ocean
And burned in the warmth of the Sun
I’d never said the things I said to you to anyone before
And my heart never was so happy
As when you walked through my door
When you said that you believed in me, I felt the trembling fear
That you were seeing through me to the reasons for my tears
Oh what memories come when I turn those records on
Where do I belong, why can’t I be strong
Oh it’s been so long since I counted the stars in Orion
Since I saw the Rocky Mountains
Since I said the things I said to you and opened up the door
I’ve been drifting on an ocean, looking for a shore
When you said that you believed in me, I felt the trembling fear
That one day you would leave and be the reason for my tears
One day you would leave and be the reason for my tears
The reason for my tears

NO TRUER LOVE THAN YOU

Across the endless waves of time, existed once in days sublime
No truer love than you
In present tense I’m often blind
But in dreams I can recall to mind
No truer love than you
Was it in a far away land
We let the truth slip through our hands
Then like two ships that pass in the night
We never spoke, we never tried
Sudden scent of flowering trees, certain things reminding me
Of no truer love than you
Eternal as the poets say, destiny has led the way
To no truer love than you
In silent glow you touched my heart, candles burning in an arc
Words that say we’ll never part
Never be two ships that pass in the dark
You know I looked for you, I always adored you
Sometimes we lose the ones we love
Faint but clear I hear a sound
Prayers that lost love can be found
Promises we’ve made before, calling these two ships to shore
Who can break the chains that I can’t see and set my spirit free
No truer love than you
No truer love than you

ORION’S ANGEL

You’re giving all you’ve got to give
You’re doing all you can
And I can see you’d gladly do without
Than compromise your stand
You’re not holding out for something they call Heaven
And it’s not like you to hide your love away
You’re a true fallen Angel, your spirit is like the sky
Dreaming of the day when once again we fly
I looked up and saw Orion and I knew that you were near
Three stars were bright in Orion’s belt
Like a sign that you’d be here
I looked up and saw Orion, warrior of the night
Three stars were bright in Orion’s belt
Like a lighthouse in the sky
You called me just to tell me you hope I understand
And when I feel as though I can’t go on
You take me by my hand
You’re not holding out for something they call Heaven
And it’s not like you to hide your love away
Your a true fallen Angel, your spirit is like the sky
Orion’s Angel, once again we fly

HARVEST OF TEARS

Tried to hold the Moon in my hands
But the eclipse came and grabbed my chance
Guess I knew it wouldn’t last, like a dream now it’s in the past
All alone I see myself in traces the wind left behind
I have cast a shadow of love that lost it’s time
In the dance of the harvest of tears
In the dance of the harvest of tears
Seeking unity with you and I while we let go and say goodbye
For further and higher we will fly
On a faithful wing and a changing tide
We’ll take the seeds of dreams we made
And plant them with a prayer
That hearts are true and love will stay for someone, anywhere
In the dance of the harvest of tears
In the dance of the harvest of tears
Birds are calling as they fly the sky is still so clear
Only love sustains a life, love is always near
Don’t mistake it for a fantasy, the colors are complete
Find love where you’ve hidden it and paint your masterpiece
In the dance of the harvest of tears
The dance of the harvest of tears

THROUGH THE STORM

I’ve prayed to every possible Angel, I’ve prayed to God above
I’m waiting for an answer, I still believe in love
I know I hurt his feelings, I apologize
I’ll go on believing, birds are gonna fly
Through the storm, birds all find the safest place to land
Angels protect them while in the wind they stand
Through the storm, lovers stay safe within their hearts
With promises unspoken never to depart
When I look up to Heaven it still looks the same
I’m talkin’ to the Angels, they all know his name
If they bring him back to me, I’ll be so Damn good
Compassionate and patient, I promised them I would
Through the storm, birds all find the safest place to land
Angels protect them while in the wind they stand
Through the storm lovers stay safe within their hearts
With promises unspoken, never to depart
We have the will but still we try to turn back time
And talk about forever, we talk about for keeps
This ol’ world is hungry and the water’s getting deep
Doubt will come cold as snow and cover what we see
I just never wanna see you go, Baby lean on me
Through the storm, birds all find the safest place to land
Angels protect them while in the wind they stand
Through the storm lovers stay safe within their hearts
With promises unspoken, never to depart
And try to turn back time”
