Conceive Lyric UPDATE 2019

Song was free associated during an improvisational meditation in 2001. Since I have thought the lyrics through many times, trying to relive the moment of conception and dial into the feeling and the meaning behind that I was singing. I also have hoped to be honest in my intention lyrically. I do not feel that I have misrepresented my original spontaneous flow, but that I have been able to draw out the actual content that I may have been reluctant to say then. I feel that the actual words now are closer to my intention in the first moment than the actual words I sang on that recording. Though the nuance emotionally and the way I played the original has its special place and I do not feel I can currently duplicate that musically, I think that this is the more true version of the song.

Its what I've been waiting for
what I been thinking about
what I been working on my whole life though
Crying for to moon
ah
what I read - what I sung
what I said - what I done
that I been and where I've gone for you
We've got to let love rule
well I've been breaking through
I've been waking up to
its where were headed toward
all been searching for
oh, been running down this dream for a long time
walking down the line
on the road again
Here I am living my life
There you go on living your life
I been staring at the sun
when you look in you can see
through the trees to my pantry
where I sit and whittle on the song
answers blowing in the wind
saw the sign, on the edge I'm living
oh won't you let me lend a hand to you
been seen stumbling and bleed
falling on my knees
sailing on the seas
oh following the bliss
got all I need in this kiss
good loving through all space and time
will you see whats happening to me
will they know whats happening to me
yeah
I've been touched by ecstasy
for I know I can achieve
all is inside me
this I can now let it be
i feel free
Everything there is I can see
everything there is I conceive
to by light
the galaxy is like
lays inside of might
luring you around your life
exceeding my mind
