lyrics:

Some say love is a higher power
Some say love is all we need
But I say love is a formless energy
That flows invisibly and secretly through everything
Flows invisibly and secretly through everything

How I wish my eyes could see
The love the light the energy
It shines the stars and moves the seas
Oh how I wish my eyes could see

Some say God is a higher power
But somehow God has wants and needs
But I say God is not some entity
Who grants impunity to those He deems most worthy
Impunity for those He deems most worthy

How I wish my eyes could see
The love the light the energy
It shines the stars and moves the seas
Oh how I wish my eyes could see

Do you believe in a life from which life flows
And do you really believe it would send you here on your own
And it would leave you here all alone
Are we ever all alone?

How I wish my eyes could see
The love the light the energy
It shines the stars and moves the seas
Oh how I wish my eyes could see

How I wish my eyes could see
The love the light the energy
That moves through you and me and everything
Oh how I wish my eyes could see
How I wish my eyes could see
How I wish my eyes could see

About Anthony Burbidge:

Born Anthony Tyler Burbidge in the small town of Kentville, Nova Scotia, on the East Coast of Canada, Burbidge’s mother, Marie, recounts how she and her husband, Robert, came to chose a name for their first born child. “I could picture the name Anthony Tyler Burbidge on the cover of a book and I felt as if he might be a writer one day.” While Anthony has yet to pen his first hardback, he has proven his mother’s intuition correct in that he has blossomed into an adept writer of songs. While his penchant for wordsmithery may have seemed written in the stars for Burbidge, his musical abilities were all but non existent throughout the would be composer’s childhood. “No one was musical in our family – on either side – so we never expected Anthony would become a musician,” states Anthony’s father, Robert.

“Oh yes, when I was a kid, I thought music was for girls and sissies and I put the least possible effort into it” Anthony Burbidge. As Burbidge recalls himself, “I think [his professor] said something along the lines of, ‘You see Mrs. Burbidge some people are born to be tall and agile and are well suited to be basketball players while others are short, stout and have two left feet. I think it’s the same thing with music. Some people just aren’t cut out to be musicians.” “Oh when he told me I COULDN’T do music, suddenly I was overcome with a sense that I HAD to do music. There was no way this man was going to tell me I wasn’t worthy of the challenge. Now, of course, a moment before his comment I had no interest in persuing music at all. But once, he said I couldn’t, that was it” Anthony Burbidge.

Burbidge’s journey to the creation of this heart opening music is filled with twists and turns. In 1993, he released his first CD while still enrolled in the BMus. Program at Mount Allison University and his ambitious pop/rock songs landed him in the media in his native Canada. Tragically, within a few months of the CD’s release, the young singer was struck by a severe chronic illness that forced him to abandon his musical path – but not his dreams.

Over the next decade, Anthony Burbidge retained his musical ties while working in a music store. The job turned out to be the best education a musician could find, and the position afforded him an on-the-job education the music business. Still, Burbidge longed to return to making music of his own.

In 2005, he left his job managing the music store to focus on making music full-time. By 2007, he released his first CD in 14 years, the acoustic and introspective “Newborn,” and began touring. Bolstered by the CD’s success, in 2008, Burbidge headed into the studio to create his latest release.

The CD born from those recording sessions, The Great Awakening, is an album in the traditional sense, an audio journey – not a random hodgepodge of singles strung together for convenience sake. The album guides the listener on a journey of both personal and musical discovery. Its songs are filled with messages of hope and global unity and the music is characterized by lush arrangements – strings, tabla, santoor, Irish pipes, Middle Eastern percussion, Armenian Duduk and even a choir.

Burbidge reflects on the journey that brought him to this point saying: “When I got sick in ‘93, I thought I’d be well within a year. I was young; I had youth on my side. But as months became years and no doctor had a cure, I succumbed to frustration and depression. Worst of all, I lost touch with the musician in me. I didn’t sing a note for 7 long years; I didn’t have the energy – Chronic Fatigue is one of the nasty symptoms of Environmental Illness. So, I eventually began to seek emotional and spiritual healing as well as physical. This challenging inner work proved invaluable because, years later when I began writing again, I found the songs were no longer coming “from me” but rather “through me”.

With this new CD, I’ve finally combined the education my ears received listening to 10,000 plus CDs while working in the record store with the experiences of my own personal journey. The songs stand as both a testament to the power of persistence and a beacon of hope for anyone taking action to make their world a better place.”
