    Lyrics for INHALE

    (English lyrics by E Batdorf, Wunder geshehen by Lisa Schamberger)

     

    River

    I took my grief

    And walked up the mountain

    There I started a river

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    River can you take me with you

    And the river took me to the sea

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    My grief it grew, it swelled in the sea

    I pulled myself away

    To the shore.

    So I walked back

    up the mountain

    to the source of the river

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    River, tell me what to do?

    And the river, took me to the sea

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    Taught to sing by whales at sea

    set to shore by a wave

    pearl in hand

    So I ran back

    up the mountain

    to give thanks to the river

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    River can you take this with you

    And the river, took me to the sea

      

    INHALE

    Ardor is needed, labor is needed, patience is needed

    to drink from this cup.

    Ardor is needed, labor is needed, patience is needed

    to cast away the world.

     

    Strive, for a hundred thousand years

    patience, patience on this journey

    Seek, let no bond hold you back,

    let the heat, of your search grow.

    Look, in every single face, you will find

    a trace of this light

    Strive, for a hundred thousand years

    patience, patience on this journey

    I am trying hard to fight this battle

    But I’m losing my hope, I am not sure I can go on

    Inhale, inhale, it’s right there, the fragrance of this love

    (repeat)

    Where is the light in this terrible darkness?

    Where is the light in this terrible darkness?

    Give me strength, I am not sure I can make it til dawn

    Inhale, inhale, it’s right there, the fragrance of this love


    Broken

    I am a broken bird with heavy wings

    Hunger has deceived me

    Calling me down to the earth and trapping me

    I am heavy, cold and so heavy

    Make me empty now

    Please go through me love, go through me love

    I’m so cold, I’m so cold

     

    I am a broken bird with heavy wings

    Hunger has deceived me

    Calling me down to the earth and trapping me

    Help me to unfold these wings,

    Help me to shake off this burden

    I am open, crushed and cracked open

    I am ready now 

    Please go through me love, ignite this heart

    and let me burn, let me burn

     

    In the Letting Go

    There’s too much, it’s too much

    Something has to go

    LISA in Ishtisch

    In the letting go, I pause

    then listen,

    Who am I now, who am I now

    Can I let go again?

    And again

    Who am I now, who am I now

    LISA in Ishtisch

    Something else has to go

    Yes, better

    LISA in Ishtisch

    After letting go,

    I pause and listen

    Who am I now, who am I now

    Can I let go again?

    And again

    Who am I now, who am I now

    LISA in Ishtisch

    After letting go,

    I pause and listen

    Who am I now, who am I now

    After letting go,

    I pause and listen

    Who am I now, who am I now

    LISA in Ishtisch

     

    Face to Face

     I will not, I will never turn away

    Face to face, I will look into my own heart

    all I know, all I know has fallen short

    Face to face, looking straight in to my own heart

    How many times has my heart almost closed and turned away

    Now I beg,

    Open, my heart, I see you weeping

    Straight to the truth, embracing fear,

    I will live, I will live, open, my heart I feel you weeping

    I will see, without illusions I must see

    Face to face, looking straight in to own my heart

    Until the end, until the end that hath no end

    Face to face, looking straight in to my own heart

      

    Heart Aflame

    If I could work, every day, cleanse the markings

    from my heart, turn away, turn away, from imitation

    linger only, in the light

    radiant and clear

    trusting I am noble

    seeing with my own eyes

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    heart aflame

    can I really meet this fear?

    heart at sea

    contentment feels so far out of reach

    heart aflame

    can I really stand this truth?

    heart at sea

    my chest is burning and bathed in tears

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    If I could work, every day, cleanse the markings

    from my heart, turn away, turn away, from imitation

    linger only, in the light

    radiant and clear

    trusting I am noble

    seeing with my own eyes

     

    The Churn

     I am climbing down into the churn.

    The rocks are sharp, cold against my hands,                

    the water behind me

    bites at the back of my legs.

    I am afraid the water will freeze my feet, afraid they will become inflexible and I will slip.

    A moment ago, as I was walking here, it was peaceful, warm

    The smell of the bayberry, the soft well-worn path winding to the rocky shore.

    This is where my mother would take me when there was a storm.

    The Churn, she called it, where the ocean comes surging around a large rock, that stands in the center of a cove. There is a narrow channel between that rock and the steep walls that surround it.

    When there is a storm, the water comes rushing into this tight channel on either side of that rock and meets violently in the middle, shooting high up into the air.

    Spectacular, powerful, frightening…

    This may be where I learned the value of fear.

    you can scream into that ocean, you can lean against that wind.

    I thought I would just stand there, watching for whales, listening to the wild water, but I found myself searching the rock cliff, looking for a path,

    And when I found one

    I began to climb,

    down.

    Into the churn,

    into the crashing water.

     

    Birke 

    Can you feel that?

    My hand

    On your white bark?

    Forgive me,

    forgive me

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    Will you keep a secret?

    If I write it

    On your white bark?

    I wish   

    you could talk to me

    talk to me

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    I wish I knew if you could feel that

    My hand on your white bark

    listen, The birds are here

    Shhhhhhh

    Lisa in Ishtisch

      

    Mechashadie

    In the dark,

    I’m wondering, in the end,

    will I do what is right? Was I everything,

    that I wanted to be? Do I dare?

    The chance may not come back again

    Lisa in Ishtisch

    In the end,

    I’m thinking so quietly,

    of all I might miss, in this tiny life,

    what have I done? Do I dare?

    The chance may not come back again

    We Are Desperate Lovers Of Life

    We Must Sail Through The Light

    We Are Meant To Ignite

    And Burn In The Light

    And Burn In The Light

    In The End, The Darkness Will Come

    In The End, The Darkness Will Come

    In The End, We Burn In The Light

    Lieb dich und Wunder geschehen.

    Jetzt, hier kann alles entstehen.
