Music & Lyrics By John Zay I took a chance and left one day Sold all my stuff and walked away A voice inside kept me on track I can’t believe it when I look back The life I built was ready to go And who am I to stop the flow High’s and Lows I’ll see you from the other side I know I’ll be ok Days and Nights I’ll meet you in the other room where everything’s all right....High’s and lows It wasn’t easy to close the door Goodbye to friends and so much more But in the madness I heard a sound It pulled me back down to the ground Got off the plane and walked on a stage and without a blink I turned the page High’s and Lows I’ll see you from the other side I know I’ll be ok Days and Nights I’ll meet you in the other room where everything’s all right....High’s and lows Ohh - Highs and Lows… It’s my Vitalogy You can’t be Rid Of Me I feel like Aladdin Sane High’s and Lows I’ll see you from the other side I know I’ll be ok Days and Nights I’ll meet you in the other room where everything’s all right Highs and Lows - Days and Nights Boys and girls - Wrong and Right Yin and Yang There is room for everybody in my world In my world, in my world There is room for everybody in my world Highs & Lows…..

Music & Lyrics By John Zay You and I at the edge of the ocean You and I at the top of the sky Making love through a life of devotion Waking up as we stop to wonder why You and I on the brink of tomorrow Down to earth with our feet in the sand sifting through all the joy and the sorrow We’re walking hand in hand When all the word is lost to me I will wait for an answer, wait for an answer Until your love is all I see I will wait for an answer, wait for an answer You & I looking through the illusion You & I staring death in the eye as the floods leave our hearts in confusion the fires will burn our skies When all the word is lost to me I will wait for an answer, wait for an answer Until your love is all I see I will wait for an answer, wait for an answer Until we find a place to be where our children can be free Beyond the gilded cage of greed Between the lines of fantasy You and I past the eyes of deception You and I taking off our disguise Tappin' in to the truth of connection as the ocean drops a tear from our eyes When all the word is lost to me I will wait for an answer, wait for an answer Until your love is all I see I will wait for an answer, wait for an answer

Music & Lyrics By John Zay Head to the light pull yourself out of the pain Take on the night there will always be another day Wait for the signs you’ve never really lost your way see through the times let yourself run and play It’s not so easy but it doesn't have to be so hard It’s not so easy to be strong all the time I listen to the voice that hears the place that knows I can face these fears I let myself feel my deepest needs and rest a while in her breeze Look for the love the teacher has many forms know you have enough to weather out the storms I listen to the voice that hears the place that knows I can face these fears I let myself feel my deepest needs and rest a while in her breeze It’s not so easy but it doesn't have to be so hard It’s not so easy to be strong all the time Inch towards the sun plant your roots deep in the ground be with the one who's given us the gift of sound I listen to the voice that hears the place that knows I can face these fears I let myself feel my deepest needs and rest a while in her breeze

Music & Lyrics By John Zay New day sunrise Breaking dawn cries Embrace me, Embrace me Transform dark skies Rise up realize I’m waking, I’m waking You are the one Who’s been calling out me Bring your truth into this world Amaze me I know you wondered Where I was when you were lost I was waiting For you to come around Seasons of life Left you surprised Changing, you’re changing Future is here No need to fear Belonging belonging I fall in love When you truly set me free Bring your truth into this world Amaze me I know you wondered Where I was when you were lost I was waiting For you to come around Bring Your Truth Bring Your Truth Amaze Me Bring your Truth In.. ..to this world Bring Your Truth I've been waiting For you to come Around Bring your truth into this world Amaze me I know you wondered Where I was when you were lost I was waiting For you to come around

Music & Lyrics By John Zay Let me know today are we gonna stay together in the light together in the light As the world goes round as the walls fall down we wait for the morning light I hold you through the night Innocent heart of love there is no sound, there is no sound Innocent light of love did I let you down today? It's 3 AM again the witch is in the den a fire's burning bright we're together in the light And as it burns I see a sign that you are free on your way to the the light together through the night Innocent heart of love there is no sound, there is no sound Innocent light of love did I let you down? You’re in the ground How can I live with myself and just walk away, just walk away How can I ever accept that you can’t be saved - you’re gone today! No goodbyes my friend until we meet again sun bathing outside together In the light

Worlds Apart 05:00
Music & Lyrics By John Zay It’s Friday afternoon and the sun is on its way down The wind knocks on your front door but there’s no one around You’re caught up in a moment whose time has come and gone You walk outside and fall into the comfort of your car The road leads you into the past, a dream so very far Your looking for a moment whose time has come and gone In this world of illusion it’s so hard to see a world that seems to take away, what you believe Breathe alone and find your way – your world's apart Know that help is here today - your world's apart your world's apart…. Sifting through the pictures from a lifetime ago Talking to each other about a place we called home Reaching for a moment whose time has come and gone In this world of illusion it’s so hard to see a world that seems to take away, what you believe Breathe alone and find your way - your world's apart Know that help is here today - your world's apart Fading memories So hard to get your life on track Wander Off into the sun I know there's a part of you that wants to come back Breathe alone and find your way - your world's apart Know that help is here today - your world's apart your world's apart......yea - your world's apart

Music & Lyrics By John Zay She wakes up the world with the sound of her violence Of her violence It comes like a wave in the midst of the silence Of the silence An echo from the past A spell that had been cast Now the battle is right here With anyone Who dares to try and cross her path They left her behind in the dust of the drama of the drama She’s wondering why she must deal with the trauma With the trauma She has no escape Just a place to integrate The wisdom from her fears And listen to A heart that must learn to breathe A fish out of water Silently falling down down down A spiritual disorder When the now is lost And her feet can’t find their way to the ground She’s bathes in the light To make it through one more night Throws away the master key That separates the story of you and me She’s freeing the depths of the rain in the silence In the silence And cleansing the shadows of pain from the violence From the violence

Air And Sea 05:41
Music & Lyrics By John Zay Every time I say hello to you Every time I say goodbye to you Every time I get hung up on you Every time I can’t breathe without you Every way I want to say you cannot be in my life Every way I want to take us away and bring us to a new life Yea - in the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me In the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me Why didn’t you call out my name? Why didn’t you call out my name? Every single night I answered the phone for you I stayed up late for you Every time I stopped what I was doing for you was tired the next day for you… but then you said it was through Now please see me there you’re all I have to care Please see me there…. Huh - in the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me In the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me I bent over backwards I saw you come all the way here I thought in your heart you could see Yea - in the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me In the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me In the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me In the air you we’re wanted In the sea you we’re lookin’ for me yea-eh-eah Why didn’t you call out my name? Air and sea

Music & Lyrics By John Zay You and I will find that we are aligned You and I will see that we're meant to be naked, running, open, loving, free.... In this world of chance take your time and dance Enchanted by the sound In this sea of waves neck in neck we play I want to be by your…side…. You and I will know that we’re in the flow You and I will find that we are divine beings, hearing, seeing, feeling, free… Through the longest dream Nothing’s what it seems We’re open to surprise Through the longest day we choose what to say The image comes from in…side You and I will see we can always be You and I will care cause we’re meant to share Love….

about

‘Worlds Apart’ is my 4th solo release. It was recorded over 5 years in too many places to list! The theme of duality plays throughout the album. You can see it in the titles of the tracks - “Highs & Lows, You & I, Air & Sea, Worlds Apart, A Fish Out Of Water”. The album explores where we create divisions in ourselves and with others and how we navigate through them. Sometimes well, sometimes more uneasily. Ultimately the album ends with the song “Aligned” which takes a playful approach to tying those disparate parts together.
