"Hindsight" as written by and Daniel Cavanagh....
"Intangible. Eternal. Without beginning nor end. The nameless, formless energy that permeates all living things. That sweeps through nature like a ripple in an ocean, sending cascades of timeless wonder through the air, on the song of a bird, the freshness of the morning air. A clear calling for our inner nature to awaken beyond our everyday lives, and fears. Love is timeless, love is purity. It is the lightless light, the rays of the sunrise dancing on the surface of the sea. Love is you, and love is me. It is the deepest knowing, the serenity of being, the laughter of the earth, the limitless breath of the wind, the wonder of potential, the power of thought, the gifts of life, the highest vibration, the most profound awareness...the knower. Life. Love. Infinite. Within you. Now. Always.

For it is in love's gentle embrace that we come to know the space between us. A feeling deep within that not all is what it seems. That we bear witness to a magic as deep as our own, to a summernight horizon that whispers "welcome" to your soul. And in those fleeting, trembling moments that we share between the worlds, it is enough for us to know that in each other we must care, for alive and not alone are we the children of the world, here to witness time and the unfolding miracle of the soul.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer. There is no disease that enough love cannot heal, no door that enough love will not open, no gulf that enough love will not bridge, and no war that enough love will not throw down. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outcome, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. And if you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful person in the world."

    General CommentLove, peace.....these lyrics are dedicated to the energy of life. The deep power of the universe that controls everything. And I think if people stopped and looked at things, in the so-called day dreaming, they would realize how great and beautiful this world is. And they're definitely realize how important love is....'LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED'
    If only people do these things, they would be like nature; balanced, peaceful and merciful.
    I love you all. Even if I never knew you or met you. I love you because love is all I need :)
