about

Hope and renewal are the primary themes of the debut album from Oregon duo Luminous Heart. From Possibility, a song inspired by Katherine Rundell's amazing book Rooftoppers, to Pink, which encourages girls to do more than just stand on the sidelines of life, to I'm Here, based on the legend of a selkie in search of her skin, the music of Luminous Heart will take you on a journey, and possibly leave listeners empowered to embark on their own journey of personal renewal.

Track Name: I'm Here
Every single day, I wake up with a yearning
Of a life that seems so close, and yet so far away
And I can't even say how long I've been so out of touch or
How I've kept these feelings at bay

It's time to find my way back home
My soul is dry and numb
My intuition's a stranger, no doubt
But I'm here and I'll survive this drought

As I look out at the sea I remember another time
Vitality and passion boiled deep within me
No longer am I free to explore what life has for me
A prisoner in this skin, I can't flee

It's time to find my way back home
My soul is dry and numb
My intuition's a stranger, no doubt
But I'm here and I'll survive this drought

Coming to, like I've been in a dream
And now my eyes can see once again
This thirst I have, it must be satisfied
I'm returning to my own skin

When I look back on it now, I realize that not everybody
Has the opportunity to come back around
Now that I've been dried out, I know both sides of what life can be;
A cycle of abundance and drought

It's time to find my way back home
My soul is dry and numb
My intuition's a stranger, no doubt
But I'm here and I'll survive this drought

Coming to, like I've been in a dream
(It's time to find my way back home)
And now my eyes can see once again
(My soul is dry and numb)
This thirst I have, it must be satisfied
(My intuition's a stranger, no doubt)
I'm returning to my own skin

Coming to, like I've been in a dream
And now my eyes can see once again
This thirst I have, it must be satisfied
I'm returning to my own

Skin
Track Name: Possibility
Drifting with the current
On an unforgiving tide
Clinging on to courage
Fears amplified
Shelter's just a memory
Past is cast aside
Journey is beginning
Fragile joyride

Reach out and grab a hold of possibility
Hope is not a dirty word
Keep moving, don't look down now
Nothing there to see
Seek, and fly like a bird

Climb aboard your spaceship
Open up your mind
Don't listen to the prisoners
Leave them all behind
Your dreams are all you have now
Beauty unrefined
Listen for the music
The stars will realign

Reach out and grab a hold of possibility
Hope is not a dirty word
Keep moving, don't look down now
Nothing there to see
Seek, and fly like a bird

Rise above the ground (no better time than now)
Ride the tightrope (hear the sound)
Love is melody in harmony

Rise up and ascend
It's time for your debut
Safety's an illusion
Bid sanity adieu
Soaring over rooftops
Spellbound point of view
Asylum is awaiting
Conviction's coup

Reach out and grab a hold of possibility
Hope is not a dirty word
Keep moving, don't look down now
Nothing there to see
Seek, and fly like a bird
Track Name: Summoned
As I drift
Deeper in my mind's eye
I am beckoned by an old sensation
In the grip
Of another time gone by
I live the life of another woman

With no warning
Comes this feeling of loss that I cannot deny
Now I'm yearning
For a moment that has already passed me by
I'm spinning
And I can't help but think, no I know
That I've been here before
Oh

It's a trick
I'm not travelling tonight
It's just a maze of my own recollection
There's no bliss
Without evidence of tears cried
Ever the rose tinted tale I have spun

With no warning
Comes this feeling of loss that I cannot deny
Now I'm yearning
For a moment that has already passed me by
I'm spinning
And I can't help but think, no I know
That I've been here before
Oh

Swimming in a sea of dreams I chase the tide
But the moonlight washes over me and I can't hide
Echoes of reality summon me to this life
I leave the memory behind

As I drift
Deeper in my mind's eye
I am beckoned by an old sensation
I shouldn't slip
And lose myself in that lost life
But I wander back toward temptation

With no warning
Comes this feeling of loss that I cannot deny
Now I'm yearning
For a moment that has already passed me by
I'm spinning
And I can't help but think, no I know
That I've been here before
Oh
I've been here before
Mmm
I've been here before
Track Name: Chasing West
Chasing the west
Following the last
Glimmer of the day
Running down hope
Trying to cope
Praying for a better way

I open my eyes
Asking why
I hold on to the dream
Tired in my bones
Don't even know
Where I should be

What lies beyond
The rhythm and the song
What muse breathes life into me
I hear the voice
Don't have a choice
Letting the spirit run free

So many years
Through silence and cheers
I keep on keeping on
Putting down words
Hoping to be heard
Reaching for that perfect song

Singing my tunes
Country and blues
The only life that I need
Driven every highway
Hair's gone gray
There's nothing I would trade

What lies beyond
The rhythm and the song
What muse breathes life into me
I hear the voice
Don't have a choice
Letting the spirit run free

The sun's nearly gone
The moon's coming on
My options are growing spare
I follow the light
Into the night
Believing I'll find myself there

I'll lay my head down
In an unfamiliar town
Trying to find some rest
Tomorrow I'll rise
Look to the skies
Head off again chasing west

What lies beyond
The rhythm and the song
What muse breathes life into me
I hear the voice
Don't have a choice
Letting the spirit run free

What lies beyond
The rhythm and the song
What muse breathes life into me
I hear the voice
Don't have a choice
Letting the spirit run free
Track Name: Live For Today
Out the window
Throw all your plans
The sun is out
Let's go now
We'll lie in the sand
We've waited so long
To let down our hair
Laugh and play
Our own holiday
No worry or care

Leave it all behind

Freedom is waiting
Let's get out of our own way
Tired of anticipating
It's time to live
For today

Don't need money
Time is what we crave
Life is short
Don't you worry
Work will wait
We'll follow joy
Escape the clutter and din
Grab your guitar
It's not too far
Let's chase our whims

Leave it all behind

Freedom is waiting
Let's seize this day
Done with anticipating
It's time to live
For

Today we'll forget our troubles
Escape our pain
Today we'll give ourselves free reign
Today we don't need rules
No one to oversee
Today is all about
How we're meant to be

Leave it all behind

Freedom is waiting
Let's get out of our own way
No more anticipating
We're gonna live
For today

Out the window
Throw all your plans
The sun is high
Let's go lie
In the sand
Track Name: Pink
The sky's your only limit
So much you can do
Aim straight for that ceiling baby
And shoot right on through
What you need can't be bought
The power's in your heart
Set your sights, use your might
And give it all you've got

Why be a princess
When you could be a queen
Why play dress-up
When you could be the real thing
Why wait for Prince Charming
When you could have a ball
Why settle for pink
When you could have it all

The only thing that's in your way
Is the voice in your head
The one that says
"I'm weak and small"
Time to put that witch to bed
Don't settle for anything
But the best you can be
You can have it all and then some
You were born to live free

Why be a princess
When you could be a queen
Why play dress-up
When you could be the real thing
Why wait for Prince Charming
When you could have a ball
Why settle for pink
When you could have it all

Why sit and cheer when you could play the game
Why hide your face when you should show off your brain
Why hate your body when you could love your soul
Why give up your power when you could lead us all

Why be a princess
When you could be a queen
Why play dress-up
When you could be the real thing
Why wait for Prince Charming
When you could have a ball
Why settle for pink
When you could have it all

Why settle for pink
When you could have it all
