This Life Is Mine


Set your sights for the stars
Fill your dreams with their glow
Live high on destiny
And don’t you let go

For around the next turn may be
The answer to all your needs
For all the greatest trees
Were started from seeds

This life is mine
In beauty I walk
Take what I find
Don’t listen to talk
Under the skies
And into my heart
Flows the breeze

And yesterday doesn’t matter
The road ahead
Leads to the sky

Then into your quiet space
Give your soul some repair
Heal the stinging wounds
With loving care

Every day is a chance
A challenge that must be met
Beneath the tightrope I walk
Is a safety net

I learned the phrase “In beauty I walk” from my Navajo friends. They describe this as walking in balance — which is something I strive to do each day. I recorded this song, which I wrote in my early coffeehouse days, for the fans who have been asking for me to include a solo acoustic track on one of my albums.
