about

Inspired in part by a quote from the Baha'i Writings:

"O MY FRIENDS! Have ye forgotten that true and radiant morn, when in those hallowed and blessed surroundings ye were all gathered in My presence beneath the shade of the tree of life, which is planted in the all-glorious paradise? Awe-struck ye listened as I gave utterance to these three most holy words: O friends! Prefer not your will to Mine, never desire that which I have not desired for you, and approach Me not with lifeless hearts, defiled with worldly desires and cravings. Would ye but sanctify your souls, ye would at this present hour recall that place and those surroundings, and the truth of My utterance should be made evident unto all of you."

lyrics

lyrics:

you can always start over
cause all it takes is just one word
to turn around and change it all
we all began as one
before we all became aware
so take the journey back
to where your soul was born

won't you come on by tonight
and give it one more chance

so open up your heart
and see what lies within
i've imagined a great city
with a most beautiful horizon
well do you remember anything
so take the journey back
your body's calling for a soul

won't you come on by tonight
and give it one more chance
and life is our journey
yeah it begins where you want
oh o oh o

well i still believe that there's a way
to the heart and soul of the city for you
will i still believe that there's a way
to the heart and soul of the city for me
well i still believe, i still believe
well i still believe in you and me

this is our journey
it begins and ends where we want
