Having Found 05:23
Having Found - lyrics by Julie Lyon Having found myself here Don't look back Don't look ahead Gazing at the moon All is exactly as it needs to be Surrender to the flow of life Having found there's beauty in most everything Look around, it's everywhere Having found that love can transform anything Right now, here and now

It’s Raining Again - lyrics by Julie Lyon It’s raining again and I can’t sleep Love song stuck in my head The one about love is something you keep And you never leave some words unsaid Some nights I count the stars and dream Other nights our bed is cold And the love song plays like a silent scream Of a drama that never unfolds It’s raining again, I close my eyes A thousand dreams left to dream The moon shines bright over velvet skies It’s always later than it seems Even the night has a will to survive It will not be forsaken But can’t you see among the lies That love is unmistaken

Pramantha 04:17
Pramantha - lyrics by Julie Lyon Time standing still Hold your breath Raise your face To the sun No war is won Walking through fire Only love Sets us free Day is Done Be at peace or be at war Fear is clawing at the door Open hearts and fears will melt Fan the universal flame Dancing through life Calm your fears, bare your heart To the sun, it has begun Clouds floating by Just beneath the blue sky We are free Reassuring, whispered love beaming from the sky above Setting fire on bended knee, live the universal flame

Hey There Baby - lyrics ©Julie Lyon Well hey there baby Dontcha think that maybe We’re going nowhere fast but it’s a gas This life we’re living Always needs forgiving Pass me my martini, I’m having a blast Let’s go out dancing S’better than romancing You know that thing called love is such a bore So why’d you do it Really put me through it Went and said I love you, I want something more. Well hey there baby Dontcha try to save me I’m fine without your I love yous I might get lonely At least I’m not a phoney Now hand me my martini and my walking shoes

You Are the One lyrics © Betsy Serafin I see you We’re all alone Table for two Outside there’s snow I look in your eyes Time moves real slow I’m wondering how far this will go You are the one I want to spend time with Let’s make time stand still and do what we will We’ll take it slow until we know about this. Is it love? Is it love? I still see you When I’m alone And that table for two So long ago That look in our eyes How could we know This is a love that will never grow old. You are the one I want to spend time with Let’s make time stand still and do what we will We’ll take it slow until we know about this. This is love. This is love.

Nuvyu 02:58
Nuvyu - lyrics © Julie Lyon Time is standing still again, again I feel soul fire burning hot, your breath upon my cheek Love has wrapped us up so tight but when I saw the blood of yin and yang covering our hands I knew Falling, stars are flickering, you and I alone Hovering, nothing limiting, vision clearing my love Time is standing still again Time is racing by again, again I know there is always blue sky just above the clouds Who knows where our love will start or end I don’t know but what is real is right in front of me Ranging, ever changing, moments bounce a crazy waltz You and I dance through life surreal taking time with destiny Time is racing by again

Moonflower 05:56
Moonflower © Matt Lavelle Only bloom at night Often out of sight You may never know us Moonlight, precious moonlight We are here for you dear Only
8.
Chasing a Dream - © Julie Lyon Chasing a dream Quiet close your eyes, watch the clouds roll through wait, the falling rain, paints the sky to blue Love cannot endure unless it moves, it never ends Chasing the dream, Run, you have to follow where it leads You never stop, you hold your breath until it's done Passion sends you, love up-ends you Look into the sun Look into my eyes, can I see your soul? every dance reveals, no one in control Music makes our hearts sing tragic, joyful miseries Chasing a dream, Stop, you never follow where it leads you have to stop, you have to be, you're never done Passion sends you, music frees you watch the setting sun
9.
Eternity 04:48
Eternity - lyrics © Julie Lyon Eternity Comes to an end Now light is dark All things seen unseen The snow will melt and bloom the spring new songs are sung Breathing, feeling home Calming the colors Human you are the song [interlude] What will I dream When I can't speak Uncertainty Silence speaks for me

Soul Dance 05:01
Soul Dance - © Julie Lyon Open your mind like a flower Just let the sun come in Challenge the dance of time Freedom waits to be revealed Feel, you think, you love, you lust Real, until we’re dust to dust You are perpetual motion Let your soul dance Divine imaginings Just let your heart break free Life is hallucinogenic Colorful reality Open your heart like the ocean Your love is evident Explore your destiny Loving hearts cannot be tamed Run, chasing your tail you try Stop, and life will pass you by Let music be your religion Let your soul dance Delight in mystery Embrace humanity Punishment teaches no lessons You are the revolution

about

JULIE LYON‘s new album MOONFLOWER, her follow-up to the critically acclaimed JULIE, features original songs and compositions and is in many ways her first solo album. Though accompanied by her band, the focus is not only on Ms. Lyon’s considerable vocal talents but also on her role as lyricist and songwriter. The seeds of MOONFLOWER were sown when Julie began to write lyrics to some of composer Jack DeSalvo’s music. It became obvious that recording this music would be the vocalist’s next project and music by Julie Lyon along with additional collaborations with Tom Cabrera and Betsy Serafin create a tapestry of sophisticated listening experiences with music touching new jazz, folk and world music but always rooted in Julie’s sense of swing and the blues. The title song MOONFLOWER is written by multi-instrumentalist/composer Matt Lavelle.

“Ms. Lyon shows that the she knows exactly what she is doing here and executes all of her songs exquisitely. She’s the real deal in her element here with a voice that is like a nice chianti – Smooth, subtle, complex, and a little playful. When she is singing, what you hear is not only the lyrics, but a visceral love of singing that shines through her instrument, very refreshing and appealing.” – Jonathan Shade, Night Life Exchange
