I used to be owned and paralysed by fear. Fear of so many things, but at the core it was the fear of shining in my true light and being seen and heard in the fullness and absoluteness of this light.  

 

This song is therefore a song of triumph. It is possible to be victorious over the monsters that bludgeon us into whatever submissive prison we have accepted as reality. This song and this album is living proof that we are greater than our fears.

 

 

 

I’m not the woman

I was before, I once was afraid 

Of all the darkness in the world

And became small, overwhelmed

 

But I’m embracing The Light 

And I won’t turn, I won’t hide

And all the monsters I see

Can’t stop the fire…that lives inside of me

 

Chorus

I’m burning bright in the world

I’m burning bright

I’m burning bright in the world

I’m lighting up the night 

 

And the monsters,

in their ways and their disguises,

can come knocking on my door

but I won’t cower anymore

 

‘Cause I’m embracing The Light 

And I will burn, fierce and bright

And I’m invincible, you’ll see

As I surrender… to my vulnerability 

 

Chorus

 

‘Cause I’m embracing The Light 

And I will burn, fierce and bright

I’m invincible, you’ll see 

As I surrender… to my vulnerability

 

 Chorus
