Cut Those Strings is an album of finding one's strength though love's hardship. It's about being able to see the light in the darkness and to have faith in the magic this world truly operates on. Predominately inspired by the healing heart, Cut Those Strings lends it's listener potent content for healing their own, if that is the medicine they need. From the high energy of Your Loving Touch, to the silk cloaked melody of To Pray, Madeleine asks you to examine the many ways of looking at love and self reflection.

Track Name: Girl You Gotta Know
Girl you gotta know this twister will come and go
wind will always blow and it'll pass you by
but you might just cry

girl you gotta know
this time will come and go
like the tide that the moon does pull
as the sky falls down, gathering on the ground
the seasons fill you lungs

girl you gotta know that you'll fall from head to toe
if you stay on that slippery slope
as the sky falls down, gathering on the ground
the seasons fill your lungs
Track Name: Goin'
where you've been
where you are
where you're going
well i need to ask myself
where i've been
where i am
where i'm going

am i being true
to myself and you

well i don't know where i'm going but i sure know where i've been
and i ain't going back there agin
oh I've found my hjighest path oh i've found my highest power
i am of the earth and only getting higher
if you let her she will guide you through this river rapid life
if you listen and be still, her secrets start to come
as if you've always knew the way
as if you could always see
Track Name: Greed
who do you think you are
walking in here and strumming my guitar
you see its not working for me
that smile you've got
stay away from me

you are not gravity
cannot ground me, it is too late
and you are unlike the trees
cannot provide for me what i need
you see, you don't satisfy me
with your greed

You are unlike the sea
preicatble and melencholy
but you are like the sun
shining on everyone
with your greed

put away your grin in your pocket
and throw up all those fears that you've swallowed
with your greed
Track Name: Cut Those Strings
walking the road I suppose, it'll end sometime
feeling my breath go in and out
feeling my lungs pull in and let go

feeling the reason the apple falls
feeling the way our heart strings ball
all up in knots
I gotta cut those strings

thinking i need to change somethings
thinking i need to sprout some wings
and fly into that golden sky
focus my energies
gotta cut those strings
Track Name: Wind Wind
You're so tense you hardly breath
but you let go and relax when you're with me
feel the candle burning strong
under the sheets where we belong

when will you believe
we are meant to be

and when you feel my skin
the warmth you know and love
transpires from within
and as we walk the streets of our lives
we're not just facing fate
our fingers are laced in time

when will you believe
we are meant to be
Track Name: Your Loving Touch
Well i've been on the road singing all these songs
but i still cant tell you what i think is right from wrong
baby i've been traveling down the coast
and it's you, you i missed the most

how did it become and absurdity to be in love
how did it become nothing like the wind and nothing like the sun
I wanna feel your eyes
i wanna feel your eyes inside of mine

further and further away
maybe i'll make it today
further and further away
why am i so far away?
when nothing much can beat your loving touch
Track Name: Follow the Moon
I'm looking out on the ocean
the wind unraveling my hair
and the salty breeze carries with it
all of my prayers

i'm gunna go with the sun and roll on the healing wheel
i'm gunna follow the moon, maybe she'll strike me a deal
if i love and i cherise
my body mind and soul
she will help keep me connected
to the source and it's higher goal

I rejoice in each season, for the changes help us grow
and in loving transformation its ourselves we begin to know
and the forest she calls me to be within her winding threads
to experience her wisdom and to celebrate the end
oh the end of an era is here
the end of violence and fear
the answers that lie deep in our bones
are whispering their words in our ears
Track Name: To Pray
I knelt in the river today
i knelt in the river to pray
it told me not to be afraid
of anything

I walked through the forest today
I walked through the forest to pray
it taught me how to be still
around anything

I walked to the field today
I walked to the field to pray
it showed me how to sow my seeds
and bloom

I swam in the ocean today
i swam in the ocean to pray
it told me how to know
it told me how to go
go anywhere
Track Name: Sky So Blue
Well I never realized why I thought the sky was so blue
but then I realized it was society and my parents telling me it was true

And every perception of this world will bring with it it's own rhyme
and that is why exactly we should be wary of all the lies
start asking how, start askin why

And while we travel through this time so precariously
why not start practicing everything we can be?
