RECENT SINGLES

Rain or Shine

Michael Lyon

In cart Not available Out of stock

Rain or Shine, is an acoustic love letter - a folk ballad with many questions about the nature of love. To Bob Dylan, the answer is Blowin' in the Wind. For The Beatles, All You Need is Love. Simon & Garfunkel erected a beautiful Bridge Over Troubled Water and Cat Stevens invited us aboard the Peace Train... For Michael - indeed for anyone who takes this song to heart: each of us has within our grasp a magic wand of love, "to wave in wonder, Rain or Shine" - if only we will choose to use it.

Try It On

Michael Lyon

In cart Not available Out of stock

Michael Lyon's new romantic song of joy, "Try It On," offers acoustic encouragement to anyone who holds to the belief expressed by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz that "... the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true..." approves of how Cinderella and the Prince went about their business... and feels that this is probably as good a time as any to live life to the fullest and spread some love around.

How Long It Takes by Michael Lyon

How long it takes Drives me crazy Waiting all this time Life slips away Lacking time enough to say goodbye

How long it takes Getting on with what we all are called to face Lifting our gaze As those who've taught us How to live a life of grace

How long it takes How long it takes How long it takes Can we be patient After waiting all this time

Better Future

Michael Lyon

Michael Lyon's "Better Future" is a compelling acoustic invitation for us to come together in the spirit of mutual respect, hard work, and common values - the American can-DO attitude. It not only made our united country possible in the first place, but the envy and hope of the world ever since.

If ever there was a time for us to live up to the promise of those cherished words from The Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident..." that time is now.

Woody Guthrie expressed it movingly in his folk song, "This Land is Your Land." So did Bob Dylan with "Blowin' in the Wind," John Lennon in "Imagine," and Bruce Springsteen in "The Rising." May the vast number of brighter tomorrows awaiting us and our children, and the realization of all we are capable of when putting our heads together, help summon our strength of common purpose in making these fondest of dreams a reality.

Better Future by Michael Lyon

Someone wants to place a bigger crown upon his head Long ago we changed the way our country would be led Make our greatness real What we long to feel Drawn to where a better future lies ahead One of high ideals, hopes and dreams There a better future lies ahead

The founding of America took place through blood and toil Had the battles not been won, no nation would be born In that hard-fought way It is ours today and tomorrow if we have our say Find out how greatness feels, speaking truth that heals Our much better future cries out Let a better future rise ahead

We've come a long long way to make this home today and tomorrow if we have our say There within our reach - respect for each Our much better future cries out Proud steps forward leaving no doubt It's true, a better future lies ahead

Love

Michael Lyon

In cart Not available Out of stock

Love leads everyplace - from acoustic, indie, folk, and pop music... to country, rock, and jazz. It led The Beatles to sing, "Love is old, love is new," on Abbey Road. Love is also the motivating, captivating force for Michael Lyon's new acoustic composition, "Love" - a song for all seasons, rhymes and reasons.

Love is the launching pad of countless dream-filled wonders, including the flowering of artists like The Everly Brothers (Bye Bye Love), Nat King Cole (L-O-V-E), Simon & Garfunkel (The Sound of Silence), Cat Stevens (How Can I Tell You), Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (Teach Your Children), U2 (Pride In the Name of Love), Queen (Crazy Little Thing Called Love), Taylor Swift (Love Story), Ed Sheeran (Perfect)...

For trailblazing musicians like these, spreading love and happiness has long been a way of life. Why not follow their lead: pick up a guitar, make a wish... and soon realize: there's no better time than today, tomorrow and rest of our lives to "feel the love we are part of."

Consider this your official standing (sitting, kneeling, dancing...) invitation to get on with the business - and pleasure - of rejoicing over our "mission through outer space, unfazed," with LOVE "abiding each moment through time and space, all our days."

Love by Michael Lyon

Love

Love lights every face Maps out the mission through outer space, unfazed

Love leads everyplace Longing to hold us in full embrace, always

Feel the love we are part of From the start of time Spread the word ‘round the whole wide world With sun’s rays of light

Love, our saving grace Abiding each moment through time and space, all our days

Be the love we’re all part of The light in darkest hours Love works wonders Spring, spread your flowers

Love

Love lights every face Love, our saving grace Love leads everyplace

Love

How Much More

Michael Lyon

In cart Not available Out of stock

Michael Lyon's new acoustic anthem, How Much More, is inspired by the American folk music tradition pioneered by artists such as Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Peter, Paul & Mary, and Joan Baez.

Rooted in traditional and indie folk music, How Much More is an acoustic sing-along plea - encouraging people of all different races, ages, ethnic backgrounds, genders, lifestyles... to do more listening to each other and get involved in changing lives for the better, while working together to create a more caring, loving and safer future for our children, country and world.

All are encouraged to tap toes, bob heads, shake shoulders... and as the song suggests, "Sound out, now nice and loud!"

Rather than clinging to the kind of divisive path that's led toward disillusionment too long for too many, How Much More is asking us to make more empathetic choices - "being heard and not just hard of hearing anymore."

Where

Michael Lyon

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Where IS safe?" has been a burning question on the minds of many. While the answer is not always apparent, my fondest wish in writing and singing this song is that some of you will conclude, as I have: the best hope we have in creating a better, safer tomorrow lies along an (often difficult) path of greater thoughtfulness, patience, kindness... and love.

Lyrics:

WHERE by Michael Lyon

Where no harm would lay you low Step inside a flower show Where on earth is safe at all? Feet first down a waterfall

Deep breath just before you go Test the waters’ rapid flow Where and when again to swim - without risking life and limb?

Deep breath just before you go Beat back each last mortal foe Danger dispatched far away Live to love another day

Where love guides you there make time Love’s the cause of sun to shine Where the heart just longs to go Step inside a flower show
