Let’s take this broken world
and put it back together
we’ll glue the pieces with our love
to always make it better.

Let’s run away
just you and I
and climb above the hill
from where we’ll call
the earth to stop
and cleanse itself from ills.

Below us mountains will burn and smolder
in fumes of orange glow
and at the grand cross of Here and There
will throw a wish to sow.

Come run with me
and climb above the meadows,
come run with me and feel the air
wipe away our shadows.

I know that we can find a way
to heal our pain and that of others
if you and I stand side by side
a new world we’ll discover.

Above the hill
just you and I
will spread our arms wide
and then the air will swish about
to take us on a ride.

Around us poppies will blush in bloom
and fields will glisten white
and at the edge of Here To Come
will watch an awesome sight.

Come run with me
let’s find a way
to bring a better day
let’s run away
just you and I
and wipe away our shadows.

Crystalline California

We drove down an old coast road
and rolled all the way
to the beach.
The hills in all directions glowed
iridescent green
and the air was weightless —
crystalline pristine.

Engulfed

Morning light came too soon
and I was
still engulfed within
the silver silence
of my dandy dreams.

Come Sing

Come sing the morning song with me
dance aloud and jump up free
see the glory
of this magic show.

Come see the beauty of the day
the lazy clouds and birds at play
and purple flowers
on the hills below.

Morning Song

A little bird had come today
and sang me songs
here’s what she said:
“Come fly with me into the sky
come sing with me
and do not cry,
so many days are yet to come
so many things are left undone,
come fly
come live
come sing with me
be light
be happy
and be free!”

Tell me can you hear me
been callin’ you for hours
need you here with me
this world could be ours

I’ve been callin’ for way too long
haven’t heard back so I wrote this song
To say I love you regardless
regardless of it all

Narrow minds and futile battles
shatter dreams that could have been
gone illusions of graceful living
seeking meaning in between

I can see clearly
stopped to smell the flowers
the sky’s lookin’ dreary
and the clouds bursting showers

You’ve been strayin’ for way too long
there is still time to right your wrongs
but I love you regardless
regardless of it all

Broken glass and tall closed gates
barefoot walking on hot sand
feeling endless wishes burning
and hopes that never end.

Poison Ivy

Your distant acid voice
burnt my heart
green
like the rash
of poison ivy
on my skin.

Walking on a Wire

Vocals, lyrics, music, production, performance, audio engineering, art, videography: Asaf Fulks & Yakira Shimoni Fulks | Guitar: Anton Emmerton

Walkin’ on a wire
riskin’ all that I got
just to get a lil’ higher
erryday I don’t stop
over vallies filled with fire
winds blow and rain drops
I’ll be walkin’ on this wire
all the way to the top

In the middle of my life
I found myself alone
walkin’ on a wire
my dreams carried me along
I held to every moment
with a tooth and nail
hoping to be strong
hoping not to fail
looking to the stars
to guide me through the dark
to give me but a clue
to light a little spark

In the middle of my life
I wanted all to end
and yet each day I woke
determined to ascend
I knew I must go on
I knew I should not quit
for this is but a course
in God’s prerequisite
