lyrics

A LIFE FULLY REALIZED 

That first light over the mountain
Was the light in your eyes
When you said you were well prepared 
And ready to take that ride

There was a look of joy in your eyes
Must’ve been the look of a life fully realized

You were a gentle, humble warrior 
For justice and peace
You left your mark of dignity
There was that look of joy in your eyes 
So much joy 
Must’ve been the sign of a life fully realized

All that I know 
All that I know
All that I know
We’ll meet again
My eternal friend

The dreams will come 
And they will show 
How to meet you well 
In the big tomorrow

I loved to hear you say 
When we help another on their way
We’re really helping God 
When we help another on their way
We’re really helping God

There was that look of joy in your eyes 
So much joy 
Must’ve been the sign of a life fully realized

All that I know 
All that I know
All that I know
We’ll meet again

Inside the sun 
Inside the rain
Inside of love 
We meet again

Fully realized 

Mala na mbembe
Nai topo
Akiwowo mulema
Mabola mongô me
Bondènè
Na Ndola  ngo o mulema
Essele na issapo i ye kwalé 
Papa Akiwowo mulema
Mabola mongô me bondènè 
Na Ndola ngo mulema
We papa

The elders they’re moving on
Got to take my place for real now and sing my song
With your every blessing in stride
I wanna live a life fully realized

Yeah for you and for the love of all kind 
I’m gonna live a life fully realized 

All that I know 
All that I know
All that I know
We’ll meet again

Inside the sun 
Inside the rain
Inside of love 
We meet again
My eternal friend
