Songs by M.T. Adam

Like a Star

Like a Star

Like a star that bursts far from our sight
Like the autumn call when the geese take flight
Deep within a hidden heart
A soft explosion, an urge to start

Like the feeling of rain on a leaf
Like the movement from doubt to belief
On the surface of the soul
The touch of the new, an urge to know

Is it just the way we feel
On the edge of that great Real?
Somewhere between tomorrow
and the shining sky so high.

Like a spark before the thundering smoke
Like Venus red with Dawn's approach
At the basis of the spine
something stirs, and aligns

Yes it's just the way I feel
On the edge of some great real.
There between tomorrow
and the shining sky go I.

M. T. Adam was born and raised on the Canadian prairies where he began playing guitar and singing at an early age. Inspired by the great Canadian folk artist tradition, he soon turned his attention to songwriting. As he progressed through a lifelong learning process, with long interludes wading into Indian thought-streams and silent meditative channels, the song always remained a place for him to return to and renew his self-understanding. Musical performances were by and large limited to the campfire, until he first played to a public audience of Tibetan monks at a monastic college in central India, not far from the spot where the Buddha had preached his first sermon some 2500 years earlier. On this occasion he performed Ian Tyson's "Four Strong Winds". The event was an unquestionable success, and he noted this fact. The opportunity to perform publicly arose again some years later when he was invited to an open mike at the Tree-house Cafe on Salt Spring Island, BC. As this event also proved successful, he thereupon decided to take himself more seriously in sharing his material with a wider audience. Most recently his song "Like a Star" was a winner in the International Songwriting Competition 2013-14.
