You are Light

September 28, 2018

 

Today I received a message from one of my most loyal fans expressing his love for the new song Thomas Bergersen had just released featuring me. I must confess, I didn't know that a song had been released, but the timing of it for me has been perfection. 

 

I don't talk about my personal life situation much, or what I am up to behind the music. Today I feel to express my personal connection to this song, how the lyrics were born (a couple of years ago), and how they've come back to inspire me in my now.

 

Maybe some of you know, maybe you don't, but I actively care for my almost 11 year old daughter who experiences autism. My incredible husband Phil Rey Gibbons is right there with me (..he should be officially declared, "Saint Philippe"). Together, we move through the experience of raising Bella as gracefully and consciously as possible alongside creating beautiful music as partners. Even with the good fortune of positive perspectives and support from those closest to me, there are days where I am asked to dig very deep into the well of my being to physically move forward, and to remain fully present. 

 

Today when I received word about the song that Thomas Bergersen had released, curiosity got the best of me, and I looked it up. Then I listened. Hearing this song again put a big smile in my heart and reminded me of beliefs I hold; beyond all we can think, or imagine, we are light. Each of us magnificent and capable of whatever we can dream.

 

I wrote the lyrics for "You are Light" from a place of truth within me as I was living the words, "In your darkest hour, learn to shine." As I continue to walk the path with a heart in caring for my daughter, creating music and singing--even on the days when it feels impossible, ..I am living the words that I created for this song.

 

"You are Light" inspired me today. Amidst current challenges, Thomas Bergersen's music, along with my own words and voice, have comforted me and lifted my spirits.

 

Thank you Thomas Bergersen for inviting me on this particular musical journey with you, and for creating music that inspires the inner, epic hero to emerge in each of us. Music that in fact, does make you braver. 

You are Light

Ah

Higher than the boundaries of the sky

Ah

In your darkest hour, learn to shine

Ah

Far beyond the limits of your mind

You are light

 

You are poetry

Every breath you breathe is art

All your wildest dreams, already are

 

Jump, take a leap of faith

Shake your heart awake, believe

You have all it takes

Open your wings!

 

Fly

You know you can

You can go high

(Higher than the boundaries of the sky)

Don't be afraid

Lift off and in

(In your darkest hour, learn to shine)

(Beyond your mind, you will go far)

Far beyond the limits of your mind

You are light

Set the world on fire

You are light

 

Ah

Ah

Ah

 

Fly

You know you can

You can go high

(Higher than the boundaries of the sky)

Don't be afraid

Lift off and in

(In your darkest hour, learn to shine)

(Beyond your mind, you will go far)

Far beyond the limits of your mind

(You know you can, you can go high, don't be afraid, you are the light)

You are light

Set the world on fire

You are light
