My dear sister I can’t understand The troubled times in which we live Do you believe that love is all we need? Impossible superlative Just imagine we are gone We fade away, into the sun No one here, no legacy No him, no you, no us No me Can you see what’s inside your hands? Something secret to feed Give it memories of good and bad To help you find what this life means Just imagine we are gone We cannot hide from anyone All I want is legacy To know him know you, know us Know me

I stand alone once again Helpless, as they call my name Fingers descend from the sky Stardust falls from my eye So when I die (leave me be) Just let me lie (beneath the tree) The greatest The greatest tree I feel the pulse of the earth Sisters and Mothers Science is giving birth Echoes of water Beneath the tree. The great, greatest tree. Beneath. Offerings they take from me Skin and saliva Seeping into the ground Silence has a sound

Somewhere So far away She heard A little voice say There’s no reason To laugh or to sing There’s no reason For anything You have everything You could ever want You have everything that you need They adore you They will follow you They will happily bow at your feet You will bathe in the light That they cast in the night For you are the Carnivale Inside her kaleidoscope heart She feels so broken apart When will she know When she’s ready to fly Invisible mother With tears in her eyes She is drifting away Too high, cold and afraid She doesn’t know if she can go home Just follow the stars Wherever you roam

He tried to find a soft place for you to lay In the field, where you loved to run and play He’s getting closer, closer, closer to the real you But then he stumbled, bumbling around Tripping over clouds Sliding down a rainbow Falling through a sea of stars He’s coming back down Inside a circle of stones That goes so deep He wants to make you a bed Eternal sleep He’s getting warmer, warmer, warmer Your hiding place But then he stumbled, bumbling around They came up from the ground Took you far away Fell into the night, slept among the stars You’re going back down He never knew how you came to be On the bed, waiting patiently It’s not the journey, but the destination He’s learning not to question

I need to find some magick key I need to calm this fire in me I’m waiting for the past to be clear Muddy waters magnify my fear To find your pain we must go underneath the hill Your heart is broken and we cannot find your will The truth is here if you can open eyes to see For if you stop and look you’ll find that you are free My ghosts are staring back at me Reflecting all I used to be My love, my god, my history Holding everything that I can’t see This corridor is dark and long Displaying all that I’ve done wrong I realize the past is gone Now I need to learn to carry on

I cannot see the way that you do But I feel everything I paint it all upon the wall I cannot see the way that you do I think one day you will find me I know not what I do Let the water rise I think one day you will find me Seeing in the midst of a new era I cannot cry the way that you do My soul’s not the same I suffocate for you I cannot cry the way that you do I will not die the way that you do The stone knows all I need Return and face the pain I will not die the way that you do

I walked to the door And I wasn’t sure How I'd find you I saw a glow at your window Right behind you You were all alone No TV, no telephone When I found you As you softly slept I gently wept beside you I will hold your hand (tonight) I will love you wrong (or right) We don’t have to live a lie You woke to find me there But you didn’t care When you saw me You held my gaze so deep With sorrow underneath Do you know me? You looked away As I began to prey You would want me You try to move but I will prove You will love me i will hold your hand (so tight) I will love you wrong (or right) Please don’t close your eyes Tonight

Broken down we hit the floor Anger turns to sorrow Is it justified that we Won’t see tomorrow Screaming in pain I cannot stay Remember me as I was yesterday We are born into this world Too small to crawl Too blind to see We must come together Above it all We are the standing ones Even though I’m in the ground My dreams are waking As I watch you on your knees My heart is breaking Come find me in the green Where my echoes whisper Through your voice I can be heard Find the listener Wind will carry me away To find what is true Plant the future at your feet I will surround you Sunlight shining bright Wakes my hibernation I’m alive again For generations
9.
I don’t know why You cannot love me Did you even try? Was it that I Could love too easy Did your love die? If you were to go I think you should know I will follow I will follow I don’t know why I cannot love you Like yesterday Your willingness To always love me Drove me away I’ll be there for you If you want me to I will hold you I will hold you Our biggest fear Brought us together And here we are Your hand in mine Our past behind us We’ve come so far Sunday smiled on you Sunday smiled on me And I love you And you love me

You always said you’d rescue me someday Did you forget, or did you just not care? I was afraid to run away alone Now I can see you’d only make things worse It’s only me I’m wandering I’m on my own now I have to leave I have to know I have to try Why are you still inside my heart these days? I was ok, until I thought of you All of those disappointing things you’ve done Come in my mind and take away my love I have to be Just wandering I want to hate you I want to see My light inside Start to glow You’ll never know You’ll never be Part of my life I’ll be ok I will be fine I’ll always be Just wandering With my shadow No light inside The love has died Because of you I’ve hit the wall I lost it all There’s nothing here But pain and fear You’ll never know You’ll never know You’ll never know

about

In mid-2008, indie duo, Hungry Lucy were recording weekly podcasts and had finished writing songs for their 4th full-length release. By all accounts, things were going well for the band. Popularity was at an all-time high, and their music was selling nicely across the globe. From the inside though, Hungry Lucy had become more about social media, and less about the kind of great songs the pair loved to write. Gone was the mystery, spark and creativity that once burned bright for Christa Belle and Warren Harrison. With that, the couple ceased podcasting, scrapped most of of the nearly-complete album and immersed themselves in making something truly magical. Now, in early 2010… "Pulse of the Earth" is released to the World.

On "Pulse of the Earth" Christa and Warren cast aside all expectations and spent time isolated in the mountains of Tennessee and away from the World. With no outside disturbances the duo were able to ignore trends and dive headlong into the art of storytelling. From these stories were born 10 songs of mystery, other-worldly beings and the spirit of the earth. As always, Hungry Lucy crosses genres at a moments notice, while somehow maintaining a cohesive vision. Christa Belle's haunting voice digs deep and soars high above a bed of gypsy melodies, ominous drones and tribal rhythms. At once ambient, catchy and full of drama, these 10 songs will get inside you, settle within and bring you in sync with the pulse of the earth.
