Waterline 06:29
WATERLINE (c) Justine Bradley Tryin' to keep my head above the waterline But my mind keeps overthinking My spirit’s slowly sinking And my feet can’t keep their hold against the undertow Every deep division, each borderline defines Every dark decision in a mind- Only love conquers fear, so shine your light into the darkness Oh humanity! Will we remember All of life is precious?! so shine your light into the darkness Lust for power and privilege Inciting hateful crimes Consequence is never truly blind Only love conquers fear, so shine your light into the darkness Kindness and compassion A quest for empathy Will heal the disconnection That plagues humanity Only love conquers fear, so shine your light into the darkness

BEFORE THE DAWN (c) Justine Bradley Shimmering darkness restores my heart This dazzling silence prepares me for song As I stir from my dreams, to feel the softness in the sunrise To witness life as hope ignites every secret heart’s desire Between these two worlds, such mystery Reverie lingers in soft muted tones Till the dawn turns her blush into the boldness of the sunrise And urges life to reach into every secret heart’s desire

BACK TO THE LIGHT (c) Justine Bradley He told me he missed me Confessed as a younger man He was in love with me He sang about beauty Straight from his open heart Longing for freedom Love has always been his one faithful compass I sing to his memory To honour connection Never forsaken If love is an ocean We are all rolling waves Breaking on separate shores Love will always be our one faithful compass Lingering in his legacy Melodies on a gentle breeze Underscored by the pulse of life and Love will always leads us back to the light This chasm divides us And only in spirit now Can I reach him He told me he missed me Confessed as a younger man He was in love with me Love will always leads us back to the light

VENUS AND THE DUCHESS (c) Justine Bradley Waiting at the rainbow’s edge Wishing on a shooting star Echoes of our destinies Reflected by the moon Carried on an ocean breeze Whispered by a million trees Fragments of a boundless love Told only by the moon Scattered over ocean waves Shadows playing on her face Ever-changing dappled light Reflections of the moon Beating in these hearts that bring Fathomless devotion to my life Fragments of a boundless love Told only to the moon Beyond emotion we may strive to understand Or comprehend life’s mysteries Yet if acceptance of this moment can invite serenity Then here I’ll be singing to the moon

WHEN PEACE HOLDS IT’S GROUND (c) Justine Bradley Young runners take a message To ignite their cause With prayer and with burning love Standing Rock is born Hand in hand, heart to heart To weather every storm When greed and hate and brutal force When fierce the blizzard bites When faced with cruel atrocities Met with peaceful prayers Hand in hand Heart to heart The sacred fire burns To change the course of destiny True power will emerge From Peace that stands it’s ground Peace that holds its ground The spark of love rekindling This fire in all hearts When seventh generations And rainbow warriors Join hand in hand, Heart to heart The message will unite To change the course of destiny True power will emerge From Peace that stands it’s ground Peace that holds its ground

WATER IS OUR LIFELINE (c) Justine Bradley Prayers for the frontline To face brutality A call to awaken All humanity Protecting a river- Cause Water is our Lifeline How hard it snows there They’re blanketed in white It takes a mountain of courage Just to make it through the night Protecting a river- Cause Water is our Lifeline For all these lost to greed and fear The messages are clear To heal those fractured hearts With forgiveness and love Protecting our rivers- Cause Water is our Lifeline Seventh generations And veterans align With kindred spirits From the four winds Synergy entwined Protecting a river- Cause Water is our Lifeline Resonance of ages, 
Songs of unity Resilient courage And the moral compass to believe in Protecting our rivers- Cause Water is our Lifeline

HURRICANE OF GRACE (c) Justine Bradley It started with a simple sensation That was named an emotion Then conjured a believable storyline Like a hound gnawing on a bone Couldn’t leave it alone Before I knew it, My state of mind was gone then I remembered this: I am standing in the flow Of a hurricane of grace Opportunities to grow Are in the challenges I face Lead me to explore the way to walk in grace It is the essence of all love and creativity It started with a fleeting thought-wave Like a cloud ‘cross the sky Once it had commanded my focus Like a hound gnawing on a bone Couldn’t leave it alone Before I knew it, My peace at heart was gone then I remembered this: I am standing in the flow Of a hurricane of grace Opportunities to grow Are in the challenges I face Lead me to explore new ways to walk in joy It is the essence of all life and deep serenity Do you believe your mind!? Do you trust your emotions? Who are you, when you have peace at heart?

Sweet Diva 04:11
Sweet Diva. (c) Justine Bradley Fifteen years ago, life changed forever A bundle of pure joy and innocent presence Sweet Diva, you brought me back to life and then Sweet Diva, you taught me how to love again Sweet Diva, you brought love back to life Adventurous at heart A gentle, loving soul You touched so many lives In your precious lifetime Sweet Diva, you brought me back to life and then Sweet Diva, you taught me how to love again Sweet Diva, you brought love back to life

SOUNDWAVES AND SILENCE (c) Justine Bradley Where once the brightest vision Shone a beacon to inspire Darkness claimed a stranglehold Upon a fragile mind But when fracture lines appear And courage conquers fear The journey becomes clear So hope can gather near Nurtured by the wings of desire Carried by the life force of breath Measured in sound waves and silence- heartbeats Should you dare contemplate Another day to wait May you find strength of mind To embrace your fate Can you take life as if comes? Will you search until you find One single ray of light To pardon all your past? You are more than this fleeting state of mind More than lingering emotions Measured in sound waves and silence- heartbeats
