MUSIC & LYRICS

The Goat Herders

Six squares and my mind is wandering everywhere

A Few New Songs and A Few Old Lyrics

One of my first songs went something like this: When love is to life as air is to breathing – when you can let yourself go without expectations – when peace is within without confrontation

There’s no anger inside – everything is alive – your body moves with the beat of 10 million lives (1985)

She Loves

I wrote this song to honor mothers who have to live with the unbearable loss of losing a child too soon. She Loves honors mothers around the world who shoulder the extraordinary gift of loving no matter what. I’ve never witnessed a more meaningful expression of love than that of a mother for her broken son.

No Mystery

Have you been around a person who see’s everything accurately and without any need to make the story better or worse than it is? This song is about this rarified being that is in fact within each of us. May you find yourself in awe of where you are in each moment and see it as it is through this open lens of loving it all and holding it all in love.

You Are God

Is it possible to believe we are all here to create? To love? To live fully? And say yeah to it all!


Lyrics

Yeah To It All

Cheers to the living 
Faith of our fathers
Tempting the values 
Ageless and ever

Account the mens stories 
True as an arrow
Could this be all that it was
When there were heroes 

Cheers to our mothers 
Breath of our living 
Trust in the nurturing 
Languishing feeling 
 
Look to the heavens
Then into the eyes 
Of your love 
And start believing 

Here’s to our friendship 
Brave as the unknown 
Deepening our love 
Strengthening our courage

Everyone standing may peace be among us 
As we say Yeah to It All 

Cheers to the living 
Memories of our loved
Found in silence 
Seduced by the beauty 

Wait for the sensing 
Be still and trusting 
Give into the fall 
And start believing 

Here’s to our friendship 
Brave as the unknown 
Deepening our love 
Strengthening our courage

Everyone standing may peace be among us 
As we say Yeah to It All 

No Mystery

She smiles away most of the day 
Picking moments to feel the noise in her way 
So she can feel what its like
To breath em in
She can feel what its like
To be one of them 

She shakes it off and turns it around 
Giving everything she’s got to break some ground
Of a lonely heart 
That could use some love
Of a troubled soul 
In need of letting it go

There’s no mystery 
Why we can’t see 
Each other in each other 
Sisters and brothers 

Theres no mystery 
How we fall apart
We start believing 
In broken hearts 

Theres no Mystery 

The city’s quiet with a chill in the air
her stride shortens to slow the pace of getting there
Too many years of rushing 
to get nowhere

Too many moments lost 
With nothin to share


She see’s each face and reads each book 
Feels each moment as she meets each look 
Of a lonely heart
That could use some love 
Of a troubled soul 
In need of letting go o o 

There’s no mystery 
Why we can’t see 
Each other in each other 
Sisters and brothers 

Theres no mystery 
How we fall apart
We start believing 
In broken hearts 

Theres no Mystery

Perfect in the End

Can’t know what you’re missing 
When your missing what you know 
Tripping over moments underneath 
The midnight glow 

Tryin hard to stay ahead
All the while falling behind
Each story has an ending 
And I know this ain’t your time

Chorus     
Go on and cry cry cry when it hurts              
Too much to fight    
                                
You might just want to lie lie lie                         
No shame it getting by 

But be sure to come back to where you’ve always been 
It all turns out perfect in the end
 
Verse
So stop making up stories 
About where you might a been 
If only this or because of that 
Timings’ not your friend 

Truth is never easy and when it is 
It just ain’t true
Leavin everything behind 
To get to another part of you

Chorus
Go on and cry cry cry when it hurts
Too much to fight 

You might just want to lie lie lie 
No shame it getting by 

But be sure to come back to where you’ve always been 
It all turns out perfect in the end
It all turns out perfect in the end

Verse 
Doesn’t matter how you got here
It just matters that your here
When the day ends tomorrow 
And nothing is clear

Stay ahead of the music 
Play around the beat with style 
No one will ever notice
If you present it with a smile 

Chorus
Go on and cry cry cry when it hurts
Too much to fight 

You might just want to lie lie lie 
No shame it getting by 

But be sure to come back to where you’ve always been 
It all turns out perfect in the end
It all turns out perfect in the end

 

She Loves

She told me how good it was 
back in the day when she had 
no time to go astray 
and fill her days with her own thoughts 

I sit with her in agony as she asks
“why cant you see” and rages on 
To figure out why she
Lost her son 

Yet she loves loves loves 
Despite it all 
She lets go of the anger for a stream of tears 
I see her fall 
Deeper into the darkness she fears
Yet she loves 

She lives her life in absolutes 
Make’s it hard to bear new truths
about the way things ought to be
In her family 

Her stories of a better time 
Covered up the scars left behind
No one will know the evidence 
Is hidden in plain sight 

Yet she look loves loves 
Despite it all 
She lets go of the anger for a stream of tears 
I see her fall 
Deeper into the darkness she fears
Yet she loves loves loves 

Bridge 
Terrified to wake up alone 
And trust in the unknown  
She feels it all and nothing
Unsure of where she’s going 
Yet she loves she loves she loves
 
She loves loves loves 
Despite it all 
She loves She loves She loves 

I was standing on a city street and stopped listening to the noise. All my ideas and beliefs rushed in to fill the void.

I thought, its either this or I’m going away. Since I don’t know where away is I decided to stay.

Guy Bell Lyric


Let’s make something beautiful together.
