Many of the new songs are inspired by my family. For example, Call It Murder,was written for my father who was and still is a revolutionary. He loved the song but had one objection. ‘Auriol, you should have sung Call Them a Sellout!’ I packed out laughing when I heard this and told him that the terms sellout does not roll so easily from my lips. This morning, again as I sat in the sun a tune came to me and it reminded me of my Mother. She will be so pleased as I have every intention of singing it at the end of this month when I share new songs at the performance I am calling The Peep Show.

Anyhoo, here are the lyrics to the song written for my Mother. She is my anchor, the person I go to when tears are stuck in every part of my body. She is the embodiment of faith. Faith in her God and everyone she loves, especially me. Her advice is always the same, ‘Auriol, go sit in the sun and let it take away your dark thoughts ..’

Lyrics: Stir A Little Love Into Everything

 

Stir a little love into everything

You do my Mother says

Child don’t let your heart be broken

Into a million pieces.

You never know what’s on the other side

Of the glass you live within

So child, hold on to your light

Rather be kind instead of being right.

 

Still my heart is made of dark

And light pieces

One by one they tend to fall.

Still I’ll sit under the sun and remember

To always,always give it my all

I’ll hold the light to anyone who calls.

 

Stir a little love into everything

You do my Mother says

The seeds you planted today

You might never see bloom

And the space around you is

Filled with so many you can’t see

So child don’t give up the fight

You are an army flooded with light

 

Still my heart is filled with dark

And light pieces

One by one they tend to fall

Still I’ll sit under the sun and remember

To always, always give it my all

I’ll hold the light to anyone who calls

Stir a little love into everything

Stir a little love into everything
