One Sky

by Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch

So Adam arrives in British Columbia and it's a whole new world never-mind the rain... I loved writing these songs about the heart of Maple Ridge: the women Centre, Unity in diversity and cancer voluntering. I think English Bay is the jewel on this CD.

Gotta find my rhythm
10/01/2005

Chorus 1: Gotta find my rhythm
The one I’m meant to walk
Gotta find my rhythm
The one I’m meant to walk
Gotta find my rhythm
The one I’m meant to walk on this earth

Verse 1: Ooh I can slide like a snake
I can jump like a frog
But that’s not who I am
So give me a minute
While I find me a…rhythm: chorus1

Chorus 2: Gotta find me a garden
As pretty as can be
Gotta find me a garden
As pretty as can be
Gotta find me a garden
As pretty as can be on this earth

Verse 2: I don’t see anyone around/ there’s nobody around
But some-one must be here
I know ‘cause I’m missing one rib
So leave me a minute
While I find me a …honey: chorus 2

Chorus 3: Gotta find me a honey
The honey I’m meant to love
Gotta find me a honey
The honey I’m meant to love
Gotta find me a honey
The honey I’m meant to love on this earth

Verse 3: Now isn’t there a tree
With some fruit and a snake?
Its just what my honey likes
So leave me a minute
While I find me a …garden: chorus3

Repeat chorus 1


2. Can’t stop the rain
28 February 2005:
You are @ the wedding reception of the lost bride in the Fraser Valley

Chorus: Can’t stop the rain (X3)
Or this way I feel inside
Where will I find you ? (X3)
In this moment in time

Verse 1: There was nothing in Mission
Dewdney Trunk took me back to Maple Ridge
I took the ferry to Langley
To catch the traffic in Surrey
To me Vancouver is too crowded
Bought you flowers in Granville island
Saw your smile on a young girl’s face
Oh I was looking for you

Chorus:

Bridge: I saw the earth give birth to the mist
The Golden Ear’s wedding veil
On top of the mountain I caught you a star.
I saw the valley And the Fraser river Running through
Like a pearl necklace: so beautiful
Still searching for you …

Chorus:

Verse 2 : Open a window on this darkness
‘cause I can’t stand it if it’s cold and grey this way.
Oh take the snow: don’t let it linger:
I am not ready for this pain
Look all these people they are waiting, waiting, waiting
On the return of the Valleys bride
So you can meet me at the bandstand
On 224 (two-twenty-four)

Chorus:

How can I stay?
6 May 2005

Verse1:It won’t be the first time
I won’t be lonely
There’s so many others
Standing outside

No more pretending
to make it keep working
I know that you loved me
But it’s me you don’t want.

Chorus: How can I stay?
When everything’s wrong
How can I stay?
When I’m not what you want
How can I stay?
When the miracle’s gone
This is not my life
It’s better to run.

Verse 2: I thought there were choices
Be it left, be it right
But No! there’s just your way
And it can never be mine.

And isn’t it funny
That the road will end here
When I was beginning
To conquer my fears

Bridge: Is there not one sky?
with so many stars
I’ll catch me a moonbeam
And the darkness will hold me
It’s some kind of comfort
That you are not here
Why would I need you?
When I’m happy right here

Chorus


4. Taking back the night

Verse1: Women of the world
Cry a tear…
For your tears are heard in heaven
Running…
To the ocean
Giving …
Life to nations.

Chorus: We are taking back the night
Who is lost and so lonely
And so scared
of the anger of this life!
Mother and child

Standing underneath one sky
Filled with stars and the moon
And the darkness cannot fade the light
Burning…
burning within…

We are taking back the night.(drumming)
We are taking back the night.

Verse 2: Women of the world
Do not fear…
I am here
I am your sister
Raise …
your voice in silence
on all the secrets
on all the pain

cause…(chorus)


You can get to heaven

Verse 1: You can get to heaven
From English Bay
Just take the highway
Highway number one.

You can rent a sailboat
And cross the sea
To where the ocean
meets the sky

Chorus: Oh take me to heaven, heaven, heaven
I wanna go
I believe there’s a window, window, window
Where you can see
All the angels are singing, singing, singing
What a glorious sound
Oh you can get to heaven
If you believe

Verse 2: You can pick me daisies
In the month of June yeak
They grow in Mission
Along the way

‘Cause June is my birthday
And daisies are fine!
To celebrate
This day of mine.

Chorus: Oh take me to heaven, heaven, heaven
I wanna go
I believe there’s a window, window, window
Where you can see
All the angels are singing, singing, singing
What a glorious sound
Oh you can get to heaven
If you believe

Coda: Oh you can get to heaven
From English Bay.


. Green House café and Bistro

V1: Oh you can meet me at the Green house café
and Bistro On a Thursday night
It’s on the corner of 224(two twenty four)
and Dewdney Trunk

The owner Medhi makes the pinkest cheesecake
that I’ve ever seen
the teriyaki chicken
is Extra special tonight

Bridge: Oh you can stay for coffee, espresso, a smoothie, for lunch
While you have some beer or wine and something to munch!

Chorus: Stay stay stay-You won’t believe it!
Walk this way- ‘Cause we’re waiting Here for you!
You’ll be happy that came
You’ll be happy that you came
‘cause you’ll recognize the bunch
From the Green House restaurant.

V2: Have you met Sarah she’s the pretty one
keep smiling Long amazing hair
She’ll tell you all there is to know to say
Just what you want

The perfect place to spend lazy noons
To watch the traffic lights
So many people oh just passing by
in Maple Ridge.

Bridge: Oh you can stay for coffee, espresso, a smoothie, for lunch
While you have some beer or wine and something to munch!

Chorus: Stay stay stay-You won’t believe it!
Walk this way- ‘Cause we’re waiting Here for you!
You’ll be happy that came
You’ll be happy that you came
‘cause you’ll recognize the bunch
From the Green House restaurant.




. I’m just so happy to be here
9 Mrt 2005

Chorus: Every day is a beginning
Every day is a prayer
Every day is a victory
In my life
I’m just so happy to be here

Verse 1:It’s a chance to fool the world that I’m surviving
But I am lost and so hungry to be found
And there’s a Nother side that I’ve been dreaming of
When this life just makes no sense
I long for freedom: to be saved.

Bridge: I feel my pulse to feel a heartbeat
Check my chest to look for movement
If there’s an image in that mirror
I must still be here.

Verse 2: And I struggle to understand why I’m still standing?
There must be something deep inside that is stronger than me
Or is there some-one out there with a sense of humor?
Why oh why can this be fair
Another chance to face my chains.

Chorus: Every day is a beginning
Every day is a prayer
Every day is a victory
In my life
I’m just so happy to be here


Ek mis jou
Vir Pa

Koor: Jy is die sout van die aarde
Jy het veel waarde
Want vir my het jy iets kom beteken
Ek onthou jou
nou nog

V1:Ek mis jou
Soos somer reën in Natal
Ek mis jou
Soos die donderweer in die gang
En die blitse slaan kastele in die lug
Dis fantasties!
‘n ongelooflike gesig

V2: Ek mis jou
Soos ryp op ‘n koue dag
Ek mis jou
Maar teen tienuur is my truitjie uit
En die sneeu val net eenkeer, eenkeer in 4 jaar
Dis fantasties!
As die winterson bak.

Brug:Ek mis jou
Soos ek jou onthou
Koester ek jou
Wil nooit ooit vergeet nie
Wat ek by jou kom leer het nie.

(Moduleer)

V3: Ek mis jou
Soos die boeke op die rak
Ek mis jou
wat ons smokkel deur die venster
Jy’s my Pa, jy was nog altyd daar vir my
Dis fantasties!
Want jou bloed vloei ook in my.

. Urban Cinderella
For Cathy McNeil

Chorus: She’s out on Monday night
She’s out on Tuesday night
She’s out on Wednesday
She likes to boogie boogie boogie

She’s out on Thursday night
She’s out on Friday night
She’s out on Saturday
She likes to boogie boogie boogie

Oh but on Sunday, Sunday…she’s mine
My Urban Cinderella
She’s mine
Ain’t nobody else like her!

Verse 1: She leaves a scent behind
Oh when that midnight strikes
She steal your heart away
She’ll leave you anyway

You’ll knock on every door
Oh Just to make real sure
Oh That you find her
A mystery- woman

Maybe some day some day she’s mine!
My Urban Cinderella

Verse 2: Oh just to touch her lips
and just to feel that kiss
Oh you’ll go melting
a prince of peace and love

The way her body moves
With every breath you loose
She’ll drive you crazy
She’s too much for me!-woman





. The infamous song

I don’t want to be rich and famous
I just want to be me
I don’t want to do more marketing
I just want to sit under this tree
And if somebody should find me
I will tell them: I am nobody
I am not here: you did not really see me!

So don’t bother to take a picture
Or take notes to remember me
Don’t email fax or phone the newspapers
See how the wind is blowing free?

And up in the sky
the clouds are making big balloons and funny scapes
all fuzzy wozzy wonderful and dreamy

it doesn’t matter about the time
whether it is 9 o’clock or five
This is the perfect place to be
just dreaming of pictures in my head

And who wants to be famous anyway ?
if you can be the center of your own universe
filled with blue sky and rain and snow
and thunderstorms and pure sunlight.

There are no limits
There are no boundaries.
Just imagination

14. Unity in Diversity
Friendship bracelet.
Composed by Marthie Nel, 4 November 2005

Intro:
Think of the possibilities when a stranger becomes a friend
Think of the possibilities in all the colors of the world
You are the friend I make today

Verse 1:
Exchange your bead for a bead of another color
With someone you don’t know
Nine different people you will meet
Who’s hearts are beating just like yours.

Verse 2:
Meet my culture: who are you - like a rainbow on your wrist
That’s what the friendship bracelet is
So many faces make a difference if you just try-
I’ll be your friend

Chorus:
Unity in diversity mmm, Unity in diversity mmm
There’s a world to discover and it is written in color
in all the people that I see
Unity in diversity mmm, Unity in diversity mmm
Just like a rainbow- I’ll let my love show
You’re the friend I meet tonight



. Let’s make cancer history
3 November 2005

You lead the way to new beginnings, I see the light today
One voice can change the world around us
One by one - I volunteer to be strong

Every survivor has a story - You give me reasons to believe
I make a difference everyday
In every life - I cross along my way

You were there for me, You walked with me, You took care of me
Oh you loved me, Oh you loved me.

You gave your time to me, Your generosity, Your financial support
It got me through, It got me through

I remember your passion- Giving tirelessly
To make a success, To make cancer history
Let’s make, We can …make Cancer history
One by one - I volunteer to be strong
