About…

This song aims to capture the deep and expressive qualities of Type Four with just a hint of longing and a dash of melancholy on the side. It expresses the difficulty experienced when we see our identity as being defined by our emotions, experiences and individuality. This song touches on the defence mechanism of ‘introjection’ – attempting to create an identity out of the uniqueness of our ever-changing experience while avoiding being ordinary. The chorus takes us to the relief experienced when we realise that everything we need is actually here and now in whatever is occurring (extraordinary or simply ordinary) and that we are whole no matter what. It points to emotional balance and ultimately, equanimity, as gateways to presence. More about Type Four…

Lyrics

Something’s  missing, I long to find the way

I’m not like you

Long to be enough to face this day

Wish you would love me too

Need to come up for air…                                         

 

Then, I’ll see I have all I need

Feel I’m beautiful

My heart transforms all I see

And renews my soul  

I am whole

I am whole

 

Avoiding real life I live in fantasies

But those are shifting sands

I’d rather express myself

But no one understands

Need to come up for air…

CHORUS

 

My life is here, my life is now.

The ebb and flow,

I allow.

As I come up for air…

 

I see I have all I need

Feel I’m beautiful, beautiful

My heart transforms all I see

And renews my soul….

 

I see I have all I need

Feel I’m beautiful

My heart transforms all I see

And renews my soul

I am whole

I am whole.
