REFLECTION listen via RealAudio

Catch the wind and feel yourself soaring like an eagle
Over the saddle of the mountain you are searching for your freedom
Catch a wave upon the ocean and feel yourself moving
With the power of the orca and the changing of the seasons

Catch your Reflection
In everything that surrounds us
Look closely and you may see yourself
In the nature around you

Catch the earth between your toes like the roots of a tall tree
Close your eyes and feel yourself grow into all of your possibilities
Catch yourself in the middle of lifeís many struggles
Like a salmon swimming upstream it is part of the cycle

Catch a nap in the sunshine and feel yourself stretching
Like a cat who is content with one of lifeís little pleasures

DREAM ABOUT ME

words and music by Andrea Rowe Because you are so far away I canít feel your arms around me Because you are so far away I canít feel your body next to me The telephone doesnít satisfy And letters leave me high and dry The only time that I feel the cure Is darliní when Iím dreaminí Ďbout you So hereís what I want you to do Dream About Me baby And let your love come shining through Dream About Me baby And Iíll dream about you Your pillow doesnít substitute For your body next to mine I canít reach out and touch your skin Or kiss your lips so fine HOWLINí WOLF words and music by Andrea Rowe I know you are a Howliní Wolf Keep away from my door ĎCause I donít want nothiní to do with you anymore You are a liar and a schemer Yeah you take what you can get But you ainít never dealt with me And Iíll be the death of you yet ĎCause Iíve seen enough to know That you ainít the one for me So take your trouble out the door But donít forget to leave the key Try to hook me with your charms Yeah you are so suave and debonair But Iíve been around the block Honey, let me tell you, you ainít no Fred Astaire So take off your shiny shoes And your brand new suit Of course I kept the receipt Honey you ainít that cute! Yeah, you heard what I said Leave it right there on the table You might want to leave some of that cash I gave you too I canít believe I fell for this againÖ I CANNOT BE LIKE YOU words and music by Andrea Rowe I see you at the kitchen table, a cigarette in your hand Cup of black coffee at your elbow, twist and turn your wedding band Staring into space, wondering what it is youíve lost Youíve let your life slip by, tell me was it worth the cost? I cannot be like you, I cannot be like you Youíve got to get the dinner done now, get it on the table by six Make sure the house is neat and tidy, make sure thereís nothing left to fix Except your broken heart that lies in pieces inside you But you wonít take the time, thereís always something more important to do I cannot be like you, I cannot be like you I know that you want me to, but I canít be like you I would rather try to fight to recover my power Than lay awake at night wondering where my life went sour I see you at the kitchen table, a glass of whisky in your hand You numb the feelings when youíre able, theyíre much too hard to understand Youíve always been a good wife, never cheated, never lied So why canít you fill up this emptiness so deep inside? I cannot be like you, I cannot be like you I know that you want me to, but I canít be like you Motherís dreams unfulfilled, just follow the tradition Those emotions canít be felt, just say your act of contrition I cannot be like you I cannot be like you I know that you want me to But, mama, I canít be like you HEY BOY! words and music by Andrea Rowe Hey Boy! Iíve seen you here before Hey Boy! Iíve seen your face Hey Boy! Come on with me next door Hey Boy! Come on over to my place You see Iíve been watching you Yeah for sometime now Yes I, I have been wanting you To teach me how Hey Boy! Will you kiss me, softly Hey Boy! Will you kiss me, for the first time in my life Hey Boy! Will you love me, slowly, gently Hey Boy! Will you love me, for the first time in my life Hey Boy! Youíre my first fantasy Iíve been dreaminí Ďbout you Hey Boy! Iíve seen myself in your arms What you gonna do? NEED TO KNOW words and music by Andrea Rowe I called you on the phone Said baby come on home My head is aching, my hands are shaking, donít want to be alone Baby come on in The door is never locked Just take me in your arms and hold meódonít you be looking at the clock ĎCause I need to feel safe And I need to feel secure I need to know that you love me baby I need to know that youíre not with her I need you to snuggle close to me As close as you can Donít want to make love baby, I just want to hold my man NO PLACE ELSE words and music by Andrea Rowe Empty sidewalks, bare trees Waves crash in from a wind-tossed sea This is the way I like it best No traffic jams, no hustling crowds No rude awakenings from trees cominí down This is the way I like it best I live where the forest meets the sea And I believe thereís No Place Else for me Cold blue morning, a doe with her fawn A wild kingdom without guns This is the way I like it best No skyscrapers or dirty air Just a few tourists gettiní in my hair This is the way I like it best I live where the forest meets the sea And I believe thereís No Place Else for me Streams full of fish and forests lush Elk eatiní flowers from my favorite bush This is the way I like it best The crash of thunder, lightningís glow The still night air before a big blow This is the way I like it best I live where the forest meets the sea And I believe thereís No Place Else for me IN THE DARK words and music by Andrea Rowe When you look into my eyes It always comes as a surprise How I react ĎCause I can feel it down to my toes Honey I know you know Itís not an act After all these years youíd think thereíd be no spark But I must confess, baby when we kiss, I canít wait to hold you, In The Dark ĎCause you and I were meant to be I know itís an old story We have turned so many pages But we havenít come to the end yet, No! I want to grow young with you Honey I know when we do Thereíll be no looking back Thereís still so much for us to see The world is here for you and me We have got Eternity SOUL FOOD words and music by Andrea Rowe Soul Food, ummm! I go to the cupboard and open the door And wonder what am I searchiní for Something to fill up the void way, way down deep inside Something to quench the fear of the things Iím too afraid to try No religion can soothe me Not even chocolate chip ice cream No TV or movie Nothing I see on the page can pacify Like the Soul Food I need to survive Sometimes I forget, and those times they are often And I look outside me for something to soften the blow But if I remember I connect my soul And let it flow, let it flow Sometimeís itís embarassing to think what I reach for To calm me, to soothe me, to love me, to move me There ainít nothing on this earth made by a woman or a man That can satisfy me, like my Soul Food can Soul Food, ummmm! LISTEN words and music by Andrea Rowe Donít you think that I can see How far you are away from me Donít you think that I can feel The distance between us Can I close the gap somehow Pull you closer to me Can I bring you back right now My heart is breaking Can you hear it? Wonít you look into my eyes And recognize the pain I know you could understand If you would just try again ĎCause I donít say these words just to hear myself talkiní Wonít you listen with your heart before you start walkiní out the door Feel the circle of my arms Know that you are loved I have faith in who we are And what we have created Weíve come too far to turn back now Weíll get through this in time Letís look deep inside our souls And see what we can find ĎCause it just might be me walkiní out the door HOLD YOUR VISION words by Andrea Rowe music by Cheth Rowe Youíve got to Hold Your Vision, Hold Your Vision Donít give it up, donít give it up Hold Your Vision, trust your decision Donít let anyone tell you no Donít listen to your critics Just push that from your mind You got to keep on truckiní baby Until you get it right There ainít nothiní that you canít do You got to know that in your heart Set your mind, set it free And you can create what you want
