This song wrote itself one afternoon with two friends in our homes in Kathmandu Nepal. A beautiful contemplation of travel, death, life and love.

lyrics

The House of Leela (Lyrics by God Dieux)

In the sky, in the sea
There’s a love, we’re all meant to be

In the storm, in the clouds
There’s a mountain, that sings aloud

In the sky, there’s a man
And he’s flying, to another land

On the ocean, there’s a sea
Dancing free, dancing mysteriously

At the gate, of the shrine
There’s a drunkard, drinking sweet sweet wine

At the source, of it’s flow
There’s a river, far to grand to know


There’s a mystery inside
That will live, if you live or die

There’s a mystery within
That is sourced, where we all begin

Sometimes here, sometimes there
Sometimes where, we would never dare

If you live, if you die
If you cry, you will really fly

Smile for me, smile for you
Smile for lovers, like they always do

Sing a song, watch the sky
Write a verse, to a lullaby

Learn the tongue, of a man
That has lived, in another land

Kiss the feet, of the sage
That has lived, in another age

Meet the man that you were
Meet the man that you are

Travel here, travel there
Build your home, where you really care

Touch the sun, touch the moon
See the birthing, from the womb

Give your heart, give your soul
To the child, that you hold


Remember me, remember you
Remember flowers, that delighted you.

How you sing, how you dance
How you live, your true romance

I was once, just a man
Who was here, to really understand

Now I’m just, a simple boy
Loving life and all its joy

Carry me, carry you
Letting go, of all you do

When you’re ready, you will see
Everything… exists perfecty


Now I’m here, now I’m there
Show me now, how you really care

You have come, you have gone
All remains, is this sweet sweet song

I had a cup of tea today with my best friends
Picked up a pen and wrote this song with them

Watched my friends smile with me today my friend
I feel the celebration of a thousand men

I listened to a guitar sings its song to me today
I listened to the chords of the mystery, of the free
I hear the birds chirping effortlessly

La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

My smile is always here my friend, my friend
It's in my heart... its where I begin
It's in my heart…. It’s where we really live
This song tells the tale of a thousand memories my friend
This song tells the tale of a mystery that will never end
There's a mountain...that’s there to climb,
There’s a mountain...that’s there to climb.
There’s a mountain beyond the time
Of reason and treason and every single season

La la la la la la la la la la la

Oh my love you’ve taken your time
Oh my love you’ve given me mine
Oh my lord you’ve taken my love away
Oh my lord you’ve given me love to stay

La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

There was a time that I’d cry for you, my dear
There was a time that I’d die for you, my dear
There was a time when I’d cry for you
There was a time when I’d die for you

La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

I read a book today, it told me I am young.
I read my soul today, it told me I am old.

We walked in the garden my love in tears tonight
We walked in the garden of her fears alight.
She was young and smart and I was definitely more than me.
She was young at heart and ready just to be.

La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

I bought her flowers and she kissed me on the cheek.
She bought me roses and I was hers within the week.

Now we’re one and we’ll always be for you.
Now we’re done and were ready to be two.

If I married her, she’d laugh at me today.
If I carried her, she’d always be here to stay.

Her life was born, on the other side of the hill.
Her life was torn, when she realized I was hers.

She loved me, she healed me, she guided me to the light.
She loved me, she sang for me, she helped me give up my fight.

La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

In the morning mystery, she was there for me again.
In the morning mystery, she handed me my pen.

And I wrote this song for you and her
And I see our eyes in you and me
And I dance a song that all can sing
And at the end of this day I will return to me
And in that moment we live eternally

My friend……..My friend…….My friend
My friend
