'Just Breathe' - lead track on the album - exploring mindfulness and reminding us to 'just breathe' when things get difficult.

I wrote this in the weeks before an operation while I read books about mindfulness. Basically this song helped me from wallowing in a state of fear and helplessness and kept me focussed on something other than what was going to happen in the hospital and what they might find. (they found nothing and the operation was a success if rather painful!)

Featuring the beautiful, crystal clear vocals of Lucy Pickering.

Lyrics

Just Breathe . . .

When you find your mind getting busy
When you jump ahead all the time
When you imagine things and scare yourself

Just breathe -


When you lose control of your feelings
And nothing seems to work
When you feel stuck and in a rut

Just breathe -


Ah don't jump ahead - stay here and now
Stand tall and breathe - just allow
The thoughts will come that's true
And when they do breathe through


Stay here and now present day
Don't look behind past has gone


Don't jump ahead - stay here and now
Stand tall and breathe - just allow
The thoughts will come - that's true
And when they do - breathe through


Stay here and now present day
Don't look behind past has gone
Here and now present day
Don't look behind past has gone

Now is all there is -
