Joy Rising

LYRICS FROM THE CD JOY RISING

Joy Rising 
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

In the way the mountains greet the morning sky
There’s a feeling in the air so rare you can’t deny
Sweeping forward unrehearsed
Spreading over all the universe
an awakening, uncompromising

Joy Rising, Joy Rising, Joy Rising
Joy Rising, Joy Rising, Joy Rising

It’s a feel-good virus you cannot contain
Rolling out at the speed of light like a runaway train
It’s a flash mob celebration, fearless jubilation
an awakening, uncompromising

Joy Rising, Joy Rising, Joy Rising
Joy Rising, Joy Rising, Joy Rising

It’s in the moment of creation when a new idea is born
It’s there in the room when you wake Christmas morn
It’s happiness squared times ecstasy
It’s a moment of unity
I’m so glad, I’m finally here
Standing at the crossroads of a new frontier
a realization of heaven here and now
Awakening to the dream that escaped us somehow

Joy Rising, Joy Rising, Joy Rising
Joy Rising, Joy Rising, Joy Rising

Yellow Brick Road 
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar ASCAP

Daylight breaks upon another day
It’s yours to live and love, to dream and play
Carefully or by mistake
you’ll figure out which road to take
It’s that easy

There’s nothing that could make you more complete
Don’t need no ruby red slippers on your feet
Simply look, deep inside
you got the brains, the nerve the heart
and that will be your guide

You don’t need to go over the rainbow
to find your pot of gold
You got everything you need
for your dreams to unfold
Take a step, It’s all good
Everything is happening the way it should
Life’s an amazing journey
and every day is like a yellow brick road, road, road,
every day is a yellow brick road

Filled with adventures that will help you find
A better sense of home, and peace of mind
Every roadblock, every turn
There’s a lesson you can learn if you’re willing
And as you journey closer to your dreams
you’ll feel the highs, the lows and the extremes
You get wise, you get strong
You realize you had the magic all along

You don’t need to go over the rainbow
to find your pot of gold
you got everything you need for your dreams to unfold
Take a step, It’s all good
everything is happening the way it should
Life is an amazing journey
and every day is like a yellow brick road, road, oh,
every day is a yellow brick road

Dorothy from Kansas
She learned the lesson hard
All that she longed for
she found it there in her own back yard

You don’t need to go over the rainbow
to find your pot of gold
You got everything you need for your dreams to unfold
Take a step, It’s all good
everything is happening the way it should
Life is an amazing journey
and every day is like a yellow brick road

Refreshing
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013, Heart Over the Bar (ASCAP)

In a world of ordinary
You stand alone
No one can compare with you
You gotta mind of your own
In a world of same old, same old
your colors keep shining through
You got a style, that makes me a smile
They really broke the mold with you

You’re like a dip in the ocean on a summer day
You’re the cherry on a sundae
The bubbles in a glass of champagne
The rainbow after the rain
Like a cool drink of water, when it’s hot..
There’s something you got,
yeah, you hit the spot
and being with you is…
Refreshing

In a world where many follow
anyway the cold wind blows
You’re the first one to mention
when the emperor’s got no clothes
and you always keep me guessing
Wondering what you’re gonna do
One thing you can be sure of
I’m loving you

You’re like a dip in the ocean on a summer day
You’re the cherry on a sundae
The bubbles in a glass of champagne
The rainbow after the rain
Like a cool drink of water, when it’s hot..
There’s something you got,
yeah, you hit the spot
and being with you is…
Refreshing

You’re like a dip in the ocean on a summer day
You’re the cherry on a sundae
The bubbles in a glass of champagne
The rainbow after the rain
Like a cool drink of water, when it’s hot..
There’s something you got,
yeah, you hit the spot
and being with you is…
Refreshing

Pure Possibility
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

When I look in your eyes
I see an innocent child
I see pure possibility
Power in your tiny hand
The world is at your command
You are pure possibility

Do you know you are precious
Do you know you are free
Do you know you are a child of God
and that makes you royalty
Do you know your dreams could take you
beyond your imagining
Unlimited and free, pure possibility

Perfect and one of a kind
It truly boggles the mind
You are pure possibility
Remain brave-hearted and true
and let the magic come through
You are pure possibility

Will you give your very best to life all your days through
and remember who you really are
when “they” try to label you
and know that love is closer than the breath inside of you
Unlimited and free, pure possibility

Within every soul
we are perfect and whole
there lies pure possibility

Jehovah Jireh
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

When I find myself on shaky ground
When I lose the faith I thought I’d found
I think of this insurance policy
A promise made for all humanity
God is Here, No Need to Fear
Trust and know
I will align with the Divine
Get in the flow

Jehovah Jireh God will provide (4x)

And as I move through every high and low
I hang onto this truth and and wont let go
I understand I am not alone
I believe there is no earthly place
Where I cannot receive this grace
No longer will I fear the unknown

Jehovah Jireh God will provide (4x)

No man on the nightly news could ever take it from me
(God will provide)
No drop in the stock market could ever take it from me
(God will provide)
No bad economy is gonna could ever take it from me
(God will provide)
Nothing in this world, is gonna take it from me

Jehovah Jireh God will provide (4x) w/ad libs

I Claim a Blessing 
words & music Claudia Carawan, © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

In the morning when I get outta bed
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing
I claim a blessing
Before I even lift my head
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing,
I claim a blessing

This is how I start the day
Knowing good is on the way
I am claiming perfect health,
Love and laughter, friends and wealth

In the morning when I get outta bed
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing
I claim a blessing

Before I even lift my head
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing
I claim a blessing

With conviction undeterred
and power of the spoken word
Take my life and re-define
Break the shackles of my mind

In the morning when I get outta bed
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing
I claim a blessing
Before I even lift my headI
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing
I claim a blessing

I lift my thoughts to higher ground
knowing miracles all around
Each day unfolds as it should
When I’m focusing on the good
Life is filled with opportunity
Say I wonder what good is coming to me?
I claim a blessing, I claim a blessing
I claim a blessing

Lifeline
words & music Harold Payne & Claudia Carawan
© 2013 Harold Payne Music (BMI) & Heart Over the Bar (ASCAP)

I wasn’t good enough
that’s what I told myself
I saw a crack in the mirror,
you saw a diamond in the rough
Even when I couldn’t see…  You never gave up on me
reached out your heart to mine, let me know I could shine

You threw me a life line
Just at the right time
Who knows where I’d be
You threw me a life line
Just at the right time
When you believed in me

Drowning in my self doubt
reaching for my way out
No hope in sight, going down for the 3rd time
Suddenly you were there
Like an answer to a prayer,
Wonder if you realize, How much you changed my life

You threw me a life line
Just at the right time
Who knows where I’d be
You threw me a life line
Just at the right time
When you believed in me

I’m touched by the way you gave your gift so freely
I will never forget what you did for me

You threw me a life line
Just at the right time
Who knows where I’d be
You threw me a life line
Just at the right time
When you believed in me

You threw me a lifeline
Did you realize what you did for me
Straight from your heart to mine , You threw me a lifeline
Ah, what a gift you gave to me, Cause you believed in me
Straight from your heart to mine, You threw me a lifeline
When you believed
You threw me a lifeline

Now You Know 
words & music Karen Taylor Good & Claudia Carawan
© 2013 Song Guru Music (SESAC) & Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Is the rainbow brighter
does everything seem righter
I wonder are you happy on the other side
Do you laugh with angels now
is every why answered with how
are the shadows gone
are you in the light
Those of us you left behind
Still question the meaning of life

Now you know
While the rest of us are guessing
Praying and confessing,
Trying to understand
Now you know
You lucky soul
The answers come with our goodbye
There’s more to life than meets the eye, and
Now you know

Do you still life as black and white
are in the flow and not the fight
I wonder if it’s beautiful on the other side
What’s it like to be at peace
to have the heaviness released
to have your heart be cherished and cracked opened wide
I straddle believing and doubt
I wonder, can you help me work this out?

Now you know
While the rest of us are guessing
Praying and confessing,
Trying to understand
Now you know
You lucky soul
The answers come with our goodbye
There’s more to life than meets the eye, and
Now you know

Now you know
you are treasured by so many
in a world of grace and plenty
where love is all around
Now you know you lucky soul
The answers come with our goodbye
There’s much more to life than meets the eye
No more tears because you left us behind cause
Now you know

Movin’ Inside
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Something’s stirring
I can feel it
It’s got a hold on me
I know that change is coming
I feel the Spirit Movin Inside of me

Movin inside of me
Movin inside of me
Lifting me to higher highs
setting my heart free
and I know there’s no turning back now
I feel the Spirit moving inside of me

The winds of change are blowing
I am dancing with my dreams
inspiration’s flowing
I feel the Spirit moving inside of me

Movin inside of me
Movin inside of me
Lifting me to higher highs
setting my heart free
and I know there’s no turning back now
I feel the Spirit moving inside of me

Movin’, Movin’, Movin’ Movin’
Movin’, Movin’, Movin’ Movin’
I can feel it (I can feel it) and it feels real good
Moving inside of me (movin inside of me)

And I know there’s no turning back now
I feel the spirit movin’ inside of me

Get Lifted
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Today is a perfect day to break away, get lifted
Designate a brand new holiday, get lifted
To begin we gotta make a bold rebound
Take it in, feel the love that’s all around
Life is a miracle you know, and we’ve been gifted
Let’s get lifted

Today is fun day, A play in the sun day
Go find a peaceful place, Feel the sun upon your face
Under an azure sky, Let’s watch the clouds roll by
Enjoy the wonder of it all today

Today is a perfect day to break away, get lifted
Designate a brand new holiday, get lifted
Leave the phone, and all your work behind
Cancel plans, we deserve some fun playtime
Life is a miracle, you know, and we’ve been gifted
Let’s get lifted

Today is a chill day, a do what cha will day
Leave your worries and cares behind,
Reflect, relax, unwind
A day to see old friends, A time to make amends
Enjoy the wonder of it all today

Today is a perfect day to seize the day, get lifted
Designate a brand new holiday, get lifted
From now on, this will be our new mindset
Fill each day with all the joy that we can get
Life is a miracle, you know, and we’ve been gifted
Let’s get lifted

Today is a chill day, a do what you “will-day”
a day for playful reflection, a day to choose new direction
You don’t need permission
to lift your disposition
Let’s Get Lifted

Gratitude Awakening
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Thank you God for the gift of today
and every blessing coming my way
As I raise, my words of praise, I am lifted
Loving you is a wonderful thing, In gratitude I’m awakening
In gratitude I’m awakening

How brilliant is the daylight, How starry is the night
How awesome is the presence, making everything all right
And when I pause to revel in everything I see
My heart is filled with joy for all the blessings poured on me

Thank you God for the gift of today
and every blessing coming my way
As I raise, my words of praise, I am lifted
Loving you is a wonderful thing, In gratitude I’m awakening
In gratitude I’m awakening

With open eyes I see the simple beauty of each day
With open heart I’m letting go when things don’t go my way
For every dream I’m dreaming, that is still left undone
I will be thankful knowing how far down the road I’ve come (I keep saying)

Thank you God for the gift of today
and every blessing coming my way
As I raise, my words of praise, I am lifted
Loving you is a wonderful thing, In gratitude I’m awakening
In gratitude I’m awakening

Thank you God for the gift of today
and every blessing coming my way
Loving you is a wonderful thing,
In gratitude I’m awakening
(repeat 2 times)
In gratitude, I’m awakening

Childlike Heart 
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Life is lovely
and joy is more complete
When you live life
with a child like heart

Work is play time

Wonder is everywhere
with a child like heart

Anything is possible in this state of mind
dreams come true they really do
and life is oh so kind

Heaven happens
when you learn to trust
and life life with a childlike heart
with a childlike heart
mmm

God is Good (and All is Well)
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

What a wonderful morning, beyond compare
I feel God’s loving presence everywhere
I am filled with joy profound
In a world where many miracles abound

In the garden of my soul
I am happy, healed and whole
I know that God is good and all is well
In the garden of my soul
I am happy, healed and whole
I know that God is good and all is well

What a wonderful feeling to finally know
Love is mine wherever I may go
To see the world, with open mind
To believe grace is here and life is kind

In the garden of my soul
I am happy, healed and whole
I know that God is good and all is well
In the garden of my soul
I am happy, healed and whole
I know that God is good and all is well
All is well, all is well

Clouds
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2013 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

When I was young I searched for you
as far as I could see
I no longer look up to the clouds
For I know you’re here with me

I’ve come to see you’re everywhere
There’s no place you won’t be
No need to search the distant clouds
for I know you’re here with me

Wherever there is love, you are
Wherever there is grace,
Wherever kindness is I’ll see your face

No longer will I fret and fear
over what will be
Nor search the distant skies in vain
For I know you’re here with me
I know you’re here with me
(hallelujah) Hallelujah
(hallelujah) Hallelujah
I know you’re here with me
