I Am Here

Being Brave

This is a breakthrough day for me today, a day where I put my energy and heart out there to the world.  I say this because I am being brave and courageous and putting myself out there to the Universe in a different way.  I am sharing with you one of the songs I wrote recently for my new Album called “The Becoming of Me”.  This is the first time I have ever sang on video with the intent to demonstrate the power and unfolding of making my dreams come true.  This passion has indeed been locked inside of me for over 30 years and now I am embracing the moment and creating opportunities for myself.  I have no idea where this may lead to, all I know is that it feels right to share with you today.

TRACK 1:  “I AM HERE”  

This song is about the loss of a loved one (my father) and also about having a loved one who lives very far away from you, like in a long distance relationship or family living “Across the Miles”.  It tells the heartfelt story of the strong innner desire to have them so close to you, in that very moment, imagining them so close that they are actually there, then feeling the heartbreak of the reality that they are not there and are never coming back or will not be back for a long time.

Here is the YouTube video of me singing the song in acapella, I do hope you like it.

Here are the song lyrics:

Verse 1

The night is cold tonight
I feel you here
And I just want you now
I want you near
But you are far away
From me
My heart is silenced now
It’s history

 Chorus

And I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

Verse 2

The starry sky so bright
Watches me
I feel your presence here
Let this be
You may be far away
From me
My heart is open now
Set me free

Chorus

So I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

 Encore

I once had hope
That I held you
Tight in my arms
Loving you
I see your smile
I see your eyes
Loving me
Beyond the skies

Chorus

And I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

I smile when I think of that rainbow

Good morning from beautifully sunny Bonny Scotland.  I am really feeling the benefits of de-cluttering my house, I feel the air is lighter and the energy is flowing much more freely around me.  Another benefit of having a ‘clear out’, is that I am coming across more song and poetry writings from years ago, I found some more last night.  Until now, I have only ever shared poetry on this blog but I also write songs and thought I would share with you the lyrics from this song I wrote almost 20 years ago.  The song is entitled, “I smile when I think of that rainbow” – may your day today be filled with all the colours of the rainbow.  Lots of love Clarabelle

I smile when I think of that rainbow (Song Lyrics)

Verse 1:  Shine a light, on the world around you,

See the shadows of life, appear every time.

Some are dark, and mysterious to others,

But they don’t see the inside, only the outline.

I have a vision, beyond empty detail,

Created from, these shadows alone.

They are pictured, in my mind full of memories,

Collected from past years, of my own.

Chorus:  I smile, when I think of that rainbow,

Arching over, all the good times I’ve had.

Protecting me, from the raindrops that have fallen,

Whenever happy, turns into sad.

Verse 2:  Tough experiences, can make you feel blind,

Because you can’t see the pictures, to understand.

Broken images, that don’t have no meaning,

They, are drawn from the wrong hand.

Paint a bright picture, to lighten up your life,

One that reflects, the most happiest times.

Open your eyes, and look past the heartache,

and listen, dull silence turns to bright chimes.

Chorus:  I smile, when I think of that rainbow,

Arching over, all the good times I’ve had.

Protecting me, from the raindrops that have fallen,

Whenever happy, turns in to sad.

Addition:  I want to, lift my head up,

And see, the rainbow above.

Lighting my heart, whenever it’s hollow,

The feeling I have, when I’m in love.

Chorus:  I smile, when I think of that rainbow,

Arching over, all the good times I’ve had.

Protecting me, from the raindrops that have fallen,

Whenever happy, turns in to sad.
