about

We decided to visit friends in Barcelona. Our drive through the French countryside was wonderful, as we made our way from Florence to Barcelona. Our conversations before we left had been about the work of Eckhart Tolle, and his idea about how we all become “Lost in Thought” at times. If we focus on our thoughts, memories and plans, we are NOT really present in the now, in the moment, but instead in the past and the future. By writing a song, we hoped for clearer understanding between us, and perhaps even discover some ways that we could move from the habitual mode of not being present, back into the “now.”

lyrics

When will I ever find peace of mind
When will there ever be the room to breathe

Now I’m searching endlessly and lost in thought
As I wait for the answers
They elude me and vanish in thin air
Cleverly flee from me leaving nothing there
And I am lost in thought, once again waiting

When will I ever know the way to go
What will the answer be to break
Through and set me free
What will it be when all is said and done
Is there a simple truth, a miracle
And is there only one

What will I know
Deep within my heart
Is there a destiny written in the stars
Another secret clue
Or a spinning twinkling tale of who we are

When will I ever find a clear-cut sign
Why aren’t the answers near for me to hear

Now I’m searching endlessly and lost in thought
As I wait for the answers
They elude me and vanish in thin air
Cleverly flee from me, leaving nothing there
And I am lost in thought once again waiting

When will I ever find the will to be still
When will I ever find peace

about

Cheryl and Emerson Martlage San Diego, California

At the age of 48, and after 25 years of marriage, we headed to a secluded town for 6 weeks, to create a new relationship and begin again.

When we arrived as if by magic, we co-wrote our first song ever— "Never Sleep," evoking the mystery and magic of the new adventure. Twenty years later, we're still making music. Join us on our musical storytelling as the adventure continues to unfold
