Return To Love

(KIT HOLMES)
2008
Music & Lyrics by Kit Holmes
Many years ago, Marianne Williamson's book "A Return to Love" was pivotal in turning my life from one of deep depression and perceived lack and failure to one of self-love, esteem and success.

I revisted this book again in early 2008 as a kind of "spiritual tune-up" and found (as often happens when I re-read these kinds of books) all kinds of new insights and nuggets of wisdom.
Everybody's got a story
Lord knows I've got mine
All our pain and all our glory
All the masks we hide behind
I'm standing here in wonder
At my faith in things unseen
Holding back or diving under
There is no in between

Everything's a lesson
Everyone's a mirror
No matter where I am
But when my heart is open
And my mind is clear
I know I can

Oh, return to love
Return, return to love
Oh, return to love
Return, return to love

I'm deconstructing my defenses
Dismantling my pride
Making peace and mending fences
With who I am inside
When I let myself go deeper
Love is closer than my breath
My master and my keeper
Are beating right here in my chest

Everything's a lesson
Everyone's a mirror
No matter where I am
When my heart is open
And my mind is clear
I know I can

Oh, return to love
Return, return to love
Oh, return to love
Return, return to love

Everything's a lesson
Everyone's a mirror
In everything I do
My heart is open
My mind is clear
Now I'm asking you to

Oh, return to love
Return, return to love
Oh, return to love
Return, return to love
