Lyrics: 

That’s My Story

A long time ago–even before timeThat’s My Story

A long time ago–even before time
when there was no time but now,
silence got stirred, set into motion
like waves on an ocean somehow.

I guess a restlessness to know
just who I am began to grow.

And so I called out:
‘Can anyone hear me?
Is anyone near me out there?’

But no one replied–
and I felt frightened.
I think it was right then and there
that I created time and space
to hold a mirror to my face.

That’s my story of creation
That’s how worlds are born,
how from naught,
a thought becomes a form.

I had to pretend
that Oneness could shatter
then down into matter I came.
And ten thousand forms
burst into being–
no two exactly the same…
but for as far as I could see,
nothing but images of me.

And for a while,
I found it all thrilling,
but then the game went awry
Parts of my Self fell into grieving
and started believing the lie,
and feeling lost began to roam
And so it’s time to call them home.

That’s my tale of separation–
call it what you will.
This I sing for those
who wander still.

That’s my story of creation
That’s how worlds are born,
how from naught,
a thought becomes a form.

A long time ago–even before time
when there was no time but now,
silence got stirred, set into motion
like waves on an ocean somehow.
