lyrics

LUCKY STARS:
Mother, mother, I thank my lucky stars
There's so much goodness in such a short time
Mother, mother, I thank my lucky stars
There's so much goodness in such a short time

Mother, mother, I thank my lucky stars
There's so much goodness in such a short time
Mother, mother, I thank my lucky stars
There's so much goodness in such a short time

I am awash with receptivity
For we have emerged from the other side
Alert to these new sensations
This gift we have been given is cleansed and purified
Observing the implicit self
A web of truth has been spun and will be preserved
I am captivated by our promise
And there is still so much left to be done

The stars are out
The lucky stars are smiling down
This is not a dream
We are here

If we can get to the heart of our anger
And keeping mindful, coax it to bloom
And if we can get to the heart of emotion
Get to each one, get into you
Then we can get to the heart of the moment
And live out each one from here to the moon
I am mindful; I am here now
And hate will not consume me

We cradle, we hold and we transform each form of energy
And grateful, we know that only we can set us free

Mother, mother, I thank my lucky stars
There's so much goodness in such a short time
Mother, mother, I thank my lucky stars
There's so much goodness in such a short time
