WHEN I FIND MYSELF ALONE IN PRAYER
AND I’M LOOKING TO FIND COMFORT THERE
AND A THOUSAND VOICES BECKON TO BE HEARD
THEN THE QUESTION THAT COMES TO BE
WHICH VOICE IS THE REAL ME?
OR IS IT THE ONE THAT DOESN’T SAY A WORD?

CHORUS
WHERE IS MY OWN VOICE? WHAT IS MY SOUL’S CHOICE?
WHERE IS THE BREATH THAT BREATHS
AS WHO I’M HERE TO BE?
WHAT IS MY OWN PRAYER? IS IT EVER REALLY THERE?
THE SIMPLE STILLNESS WHERE I’M EVER FREE

IN THE SILENCE OF A SACRED ROOM
WHERE MY HEART HAS FOUND A BLESSED WOMB
IS THE VISION OF A MOTHER FILLED WITH GRACE
AND A MAN WHO DRIES THE TEARS HE CRIED
AND A CHILD WITH ARMS OUT OPEN WIDE
AND THE UNIVERSE BEYOND ALL TIME AND SPACE

CHORUS
THEN I HEARD ONE VOICE
SAYING “THIS IS YOUR SOUL’S CHOICE.
YOU ARE THE BREATH THAT BREATHS
AS WHO YOU’RE HERE TO BE
YOU ARE YOUR OWN PRAYER, AND IT IS ALWAYS THERE.
THAT SIMPLE STILLNESS WHERE YOU’RE EVER FREE”

BRIDGE
WHEN WE REMEMBER FINALLY
GOD BREATHS AND SPEAKS AS YOU AND ME
NO SEPARATENESS … NO OTHER PIECE
AS ONE, WE’LL FIND RELEASE

CHORUS
WE ARE THE ONE VOICE … WE ARE SPIRIT’S CHOICE
WE ARE THE BREATH THAT BREATHS
AS WHO WE’RE HERE TO BE
THERE’S ONLY ONE PRAYER … AND IT IS EVERYWHERE
AND IN THAT STILLNESS, ALL ARE EVER FREE

WE ARE THE ONE PRAYER, AND WE ARE EVERYWHERE
AND IN THAT ONENESS, WE ARE EVER FREE
