Return To Me

Talk about integration.

Return To Me is all about the dance between letting go, wishing for a return, and waiting patiently for divine time to guide that return. Either between you and another loved one, or between you and yourself. Sometimes we have to give ourselves a minute to work things through and then return to our center, new and complete in present time.

In this album, I wanted to write together with Randy, for the first time in our 20-year collaboration. A wildly successful experiment which I am so thrilled to share with you all, and another integration, in which I really embraced partnership, collaboration and collective, in contrast to a solo voice. To that end, we were joined by dear friend Eve Nelson, who I wrote Return to Me with, and who also collaborated on 3 of our other tracks. Again, a wildly successful integration, and there will definitely be more of that to come. Each collaboration has been a thrilling journey, working with another dear friend and guitarist Chad Lee Jones, from my Firebird shaman tribe, Percussionist Neel Agrawal, and a very special bass player—my brother Nick Szatmari. More incredible contributions from sax player Phillip Whack, guitarist Rod Castro, and very talented MC and vocalist C Red, whose intimate lyrics on Truth or Dare are inspirational.

I wanted to stay with the world sound, as in embracing as much diversity as possible in terms of instruments and attitudes, and have come to think of this catalog as "world healing" music. The world certainly needs love and healing now as much as ever. Its always a good time for love and compassion. Please enjoy and hopefully be lifted up by these harmonious and soothing sounds. Soon to become binaural beats tracks as well! Sign up for the newsletter for announcements as to the new tracks.

"Elizabeth’s music is truly giving. I feel like I am being given to when I listen, its as if I am experiencing a big sigh."
– Eve Nelson

I DON’T HATE YOU
I JUST WANT TO BE ALONE
JUST GOING TO SAY IT STRAIGHT
I’M NOT GOING TO MAKE SHOW

I’VE BEEN GOING ROUND
AND AROUND THESE FEARS
THE STORY REPEATS
OVER THE DAYS AND YEARS

HOW CAN WE FLY? (HOW CAN WE FLY? )
AND TOUCH THE SKY (AND TOUCH THE SKY)
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THE POWER
THERE’S SOMETHING MORE THAN YOU AND ME (MORE THAN YOU AND ME)

INFINITY INFINITY
INFINITY INFINITY

TO LIVE WITHOUT FEAR
IS THE QUESTION I HAVE NOW
AND THAT’S WHAT BRINGS ME BACK
TO YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS

WHEN YOU’RE HOLDING ME
I LOSE MY WILL TO BREATHE
THESE ROLES WE TRY TO PLAY
ARE SMOTHERING ME

HOW CAN WE FLY? (HOW CAN WE FLY? )
AND TOUCH THE SKY (AND TOUCH THE SKY)
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THE POWER
THERE’S SOMETHING MORE THAN YOU AND ME (MORE THAN YOU AND ME)

INFINITY INFINITY
INFINITY INFINITY
INFINITY INFINITY
INFINITY INFINITY
I WANNA I WANNA I WANNA LEAP
INTO INFINITY

WONDERING CAN I TRUST YOU

WONDERING HOW TO TRUST YOU
WONDERING IF I DARE

CAN WE FLY

OR WILL WE DISAPPEAR
IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE

WONDERING WILL YOU HURT ME
WONDERING IF YOU’LL PLAY A GAME
WONDERING IF YOU SEE ME
AND DO WE FEEL THE SAME?

CAN WE FLY
CAN WE TRY
LETS NOT DISAPPEAR
LETS NOT DISAPPEAR
IN THE BLINK
IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE
OF AN EYE

CAN WE FLY?
AND CAN WE TRY?

IT’S FEELING LIKE A LAZY AFTERNOON 
I WAS SORTA JUST THINKIN THAT YOU COULD TAKE ME PAST THE MOON
THE SUN IS SHINING BRIGHT AND HERE THE WAVES ARE CRASHING 
WE CAN RIDE THE RHYTHMS THAT’S THE CYMBAL (SYMBOL) THAT WE MADE THIS HAPPEN
JUST HOW WE IMAGINED BACK WHEN WE WOULD DAY DREAM HOW LIFE WOULD BE
USED TO VISUALIZE “THE LATER”, PAID FOR NOW’S PRICE TO BE 
FREEDOM TO JUST DO US AND BE US OUTRIGHT WITH EASE
I FEEL YOUR HEARTBEAT WHEN IT SPEAKS TO ME IT SOUNDS LIKE IT’S PEACE
THERE’S SOME STRESSORS THAT WE LEFT BEHIND TO DOWNRIGHT RELEASE
NOW LET ME TAKE YOU TO NIRVANA LIKE I FOUND MY BELIEFS 

KICKIN IT SEPTEMBER STYLE
SUN IN MY HAIR SUN EVERYWHERE
