Lyrics/Notes

and then the river ends ya leave the boat & find you’re walkin’
the boat is floating in your mind, although these words are talking
this seems a very good place to sit & rest a while before the chorus . . .

oh! & there’s a feeling comin’ to ya
oh! & then you’re smilin’ like a buddha

the music draws you up a valley, & across a mountain
ya gather round it like yer gathering around a fountain
& when the music is right, ya feel the spirit lockin’ . . .

oh! & there’s a feelin’ runnin’ through ya
oh! & yer smilin’ like a buddha

there is magic in the air & it can take ya higher
ya take a breath, ya breathe it in & then ya catch a flier
when ya wake up on the floor ya see a golden morning

oh! from your sandal to your stupa
oh! & yer smilin’ like a buddha

oh, while ya have the eyes
to look around
oh, while ya have the eyes
to carry into town
take the time to look
take the time to look . . . around

oh, while ya have the ears
to hear the sounds
oh, while ya have the ears
. . just hangin’ ’round
take the time to hear take the time to hear . . the sounds

& then yer seein’ in a light ya didn’t know was glowin’
& yer walkin’ in a stream ya didn’t know was flowin’
every beat of your heart open, love is formin’

oh! & there’s a feelin’ runnin’ through ya
oh! & then yer smilin’ like a buddha
oh! & there’s a feelin’ comin’ to ya
oh! & yer smilin’ like a buddha
