Lyrics: Still My Mind by Adrian Newington © 1991

Commentary:

A song born out of a serene moment in meditation during a time of personal difficulties. These experiences can only serve to strengthen ones delicate and vulnerable faith through direct experience.

(Chorus)
Still, my mind. Still, my mind.

Verse:
Still my mind, from the troubles of the day,
as I come to you and pray,
take me far away.

Verse:
Still my mind, like a distant mountain haze,
like a quiet Autumn day,
bathed in golden rays.

Verse:
Still my mind, with the gentlest of sounds,
like soft Cathedral bells,
Saying all is well.

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse:
Still my mind, with a comfort I once new,
like a field in wild bloom,
blowing sweet perfume.

Verse:
Still my mind, in a way so that I,
like stars that walk the sky,
I will take my time.

Still My Mind
Still My Mind
Still My Mind


Lyrics: Wait in Peace by Adrian Newington © 1991

Commentary:

One of the hardest lessons to learn is Patience, and patience coupled with Faith is even more demanding. Keep on being brave and courageous in the interim when God is working silently in your life. There will be a day when all things will come together and you will reap the fruit of His work. All God asks is to believe. Do the simple things that are yours to do; that is... "your duty", but let him do the really hard bit.

(Chorus)
Wait in peace, I'm coming soon.
Wait in love, my gifts you'll know.
Wait In hope, and don't let go.
Wait In peace, wait in peace for me.

Verse:
I see you trying, so very hard.
I see the Love, deep within your heart.
I know your Patience, is from your Love.
Believe I'm always with you.

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse:
Do not forget me, I'm here for you.
Just ask me gently, and stand by me.
I can move mountains, and peoples hearts.
To help you live once again.

(Repeat Chorus)

Lyrics: The Reason by Adrian Newington. © 2003

Commentary:

There is a reason for everything in life, but we are only aware of miniscule amount of the purpose of heaven and earth. However, if we care to contemplate, it is possible to penetrate the layers of illusion which abound as part of existence on earth

Chorus:
The reason, the reason.

Verse:
The reason, you can breathe
The reason, your mind can see.
The reason, you can strive,
The reason, you're alive.

Repeat Chorus:

Verse:
The reason, you can open your heart
The reason, you can let in the love
The reason, you can believe,
The reason, you can find peace.

Bridge 1:
God is the reason, you can, live with a vision,
You can, create with a passion,
You can know what's right from wrong.
Your inspiration, is bound to all creation.
For the reason in our lives, is found in love.

Instrumental based on chorus

Bridge 2:
Don't be confused, by illusions of the world.
And see it all as separate; disconnected from your world.
'Cause what flows through me, also, flows through you,
For the reason in our lives, is found in love.

Instrumental based on chorus

Outro:
God is the reason.
God is the reason.
God is the reason.
God is the reason.
God is the reason.


Lyrics: Keep Dreaming by Adrian Newington © 2003

Commentary:

Whether it's something earthly or heavenly, the pursuit of a dream requires faith and persistence.

"No don't you ever... don't you hesitate!"

Have you found the little spark inside.
that shines a light on your dreams.
Its a light that opens up your mind.
Where nothings as big as it seems.

You can believe,
in things of heaven or earth.
But whatever you follow,
give it the faith it deserves.

Keep Dreaming, uphold your faith.
keep strivin' don't you hesitate.
Keep movin' true to the word.
keep faith in all that you've heard.
Keep believing, you're not alone.
I can guarantee you're not on your own.

Keep Dreaming, uphold your faith.
keep strivin' don't you hesitate.
no don't you ever... dont you hesitate.
keep strivin' don't you hesitate.

Keep Dreaming, uphold your faith.th.
Keep Dreaming, uphold your faith.
Keep Dreaming, uphold your faith.
Keep Dreaming, uphold your faith.

Lyrics: Don't let go of your dreams by Adrian Newington. © 1990

This is the day,
the rest of your life will begin.
A new world of Love,
a new world of Peace to live in.
And the walls that you've built can come down.
And the Love in your heart can come out.

(Chorus)
Don't let go of your dreams.
Always believe, in the freedom they'll bring.
Don't let go of your dreams.
In your Love is your Life,
and your life has meaning and worth.

Quite and still,
this is the way you will learn.
There in your heart,
a Love to help you return.
From the many rods, you have crossed.
While searching for Love never lost.

(Chorus)
Don't let go of your dreams.
Always believe, in the freedom they'll bring.
Don't let go of your dreams.
In your Love is your Life,
and your life has meaning and worth.
So long you've been away,
trying to find your love.
So long you've been confused,
from daring to be,
what you thought you should be.

(Chorus)
Don't let go of your dreams.
Always believe, in the freedom they'll bring.
Don't let go of your dreams.
In your Love is your Life,
and your life has meaning and worth.


The Believing Way by Adrian Newington. © 1990

Commentary:

Composed by my Awakening to the value of Persistence of Faith in ones own abilities, and the Actions of Life which respond to those who maintain such attitudes.

Let me tell you 'bout a way to change your life.
That can make your dreams unfold before you eyes.
But you've got to break the link.
and change the way you think.
For there's a chain that binds,
and it'll drag you down each time.

First of all you've got to open up your heart.
And let go of feelings locked within your past.
Then a wonderful peace,
will come when you release,
and you start to see,
how your life can turn around.

(Chorus)
It's the believing way.
And it'll bring you happy days.
And it's a Giving way,
it's a Loving way
It's the believing way.
And you will come to understand.
That your destiny can change,
by your own hand.

Anything that you believe in can come true.
But your Patience and your Faith must see you through.
Keep your head up high.
Don't let the world deny,
all the things,
that you believe can come your way.

(Repeat Chorus)

It's Gonna Be Alright by Adrian Newington. © 1990

Commentary:

This song will always remind me of a profound Peace that descended upon me in a period of sorrow. In an touch, I was transported from sorrow to joy, and could not help but immediately respond to this new peace and joy by the expression through song. Within five or so minutes, I had the essence of the song, and the rest just followed very soon after.

A peaceful feeling came to me today.
What I needed most, to take my tears away.
In a touch the shadows deep inside,
made way for Love as tears subside,
by a voice that whispered gently to my heart.
And it said...

(Chorus)
It's gonna be alright.
Everything is gonna work out fine.
It's gonna be alright.
Everything is work out fine.
It's gonna be alright,
it's gonna be alright.

I never knew this peace could ever be.
To think it's always been inside of me.
There when I was most in need,
gentle thoughts would come to me.
To teach me how to listen to my heart.

(Repeat Chorus)
