  • Powerful Women

    Have you ever wondered about herstory?
    Powerful women and battles fought.
    For you and me both to live in this society,
    Freedom and choice we’ve come a long way.
    In this unjust world we live today,
    Some women feel unworthy and suppressed,
    Dominated by rules and culture
    Knowing nothing else.


    Wondered about herstory?
    Powerful women fighting battles
    For you and me both
    In this unjust world
    Women feel unworthy
    Dominated by rules and culture
    Knowing nothing else.

    Women are powerful.
    Believe in ourselves to change history
    Search your soul, follow your guide.
    Make a Difference filled with pride
    Breakdown your barriers and phobias
    Our battle has only just begun.
    Women together united we stand
    Powerful as we’re one.
    Changing history to herstory
    Believe in ourselves
    Search your soul, follow your guide.
    Powerful as we’re one
    Powerful as we’re one
    Powerful as we’re one

  • Why Are You Here

    t's cold outside, add more wood to fire,
    Tell me something new, teach me you,
    I want to know, I've been waiting so long,
    For a new friend to come, bring some light inside,
    Where I find darkness lingers, in my dreams at night,
    Bridge:
    Caught up in the same old stories everyday,
    Little obsessions block the way

    Chorus:
    Where are you going, where have you been, how are you doing, why are you here?

    Share together, open heart and mind,
    Help me find my way, love peace inside
    When I am sad at night,, I'll go back to the fire,
    Reminisce sweet stories, on this cold cold night,
    Bridge:
    Caught up in the same old stories everyday,
    Little obsessions block the way,

    Chorus:
    Where are you going, where have you been, how are you doing, why are you here?
    Where are you going, where have you been how are you doing, why are you here?

     

    Greatest gift to find, out who you are,
    True intentions, will guide your way

    Open creations, connect to dreams

    To touch others in soul filled way

    Bridge:
    Caught up in the same old stories everyday,
    Little obsessions block the way,

    Chorus:
    Where are you going, where have you been, how are you doing, why are you here?
    Where are you going, where have you been how are you doing, why are you here?

  • Gotta Let It Go

    Running girl, where are you going?

    The night is dark, I want to come too.

    Running girl, what are you hiding?

    I love you so, let’s talk about it.

     

    You got to let it go

            Let me in

    You got to let it go

            I’m dying inside

    You got to let it go

            Anger deep

    You got to let it go

     

    Late last night, you told me a story

    Saturated, trapped in time.

    Heavy traffic, temperature rising

    You opened the door, you blew my mind.

     

    You got to let it go

            Let me in

    You got to let it go

            I’m dying inside

    You got to let it go

            Anger deep

    You got to let it go

     

    Falling in(stickers)  thicket, felling like I’m gliding

    Beams of light, far from sight

    (My) heart is bleeding, I am (a) crying

    Running from the road, lost my mind

     

    I’ve got to let it go

            You belong

    I’ve got to let it go

            Sensitive soul

    I’ve got to let it go

            Talk within

    I’ve got to let it go

     

    Passion alive, you know I am trying

    It’s cold outside, I want you near

    I turn around and see the light

    Your warm embrace, comfort inside

     

    We’ve got to let it go

    We’ve got to let it go

     

    Got to let it go

            You belong

    Got to let it go

            Sensitive soul

    Got to let it go

            Move on

    We’ve got to let it go

  • Sing Your Song

    An elder came to me

    She whispered in my ear

    This is what she said

    And what it means to me;

    “Long life you may see, No words on everything,

    Listen to the wind, Feel your breath, through the storm.”

     

    Woman you come from the earth

    Sing your song, sing your song to us all.

    Wisdom in your hand

    Stop the fight, stop the fight for us all

     

    Spirit ride the wind

    Touch all our wounds

    Woman move our hearts

    This is your time

     

    “Long life you may see, No words on everything,

    Listen to the wind, Feel your breath, through the storm.”

    Woman you come from the earth

    Sing your song, sing your song to us all.

    Wisdom in your hand

    Stop the fight, stop the fight for us all

  • Beautiful Spirit

    Oh spirit so free

    Touching hearts of others to let them be

    Oh let yourself go

    That beautiful spirit you may not know.

     

    I am spirit that flows

    Drawing energy from the earth

    I leave a seed that grows inside you

    Bearing the beauty of my soul.

     

    Oh spirit so free

    Touching hearts of others to let them be

    Oh let yourself go

    That beautiful spirit you may not know.

     

    You create the windows of opportunities

    You will always land on your feet

    Never fear yourself

    As you have a powerful existence.

     

    Oh spirit so free

    Touching hearts of others to let them be

    Oh let yourself go

    That beautiful spirit you may not know.

    That beautiful spirit you may not know.

  • No Compromise

    When I first saw you,

    I let my truth be told,

    I wasn’t scared no more,

    You were the answer to my prayer,

    Doors flew open for me,

    Many others, Trying to find their way,

    In this world you know oh so well,

     

    Chorus:

    Why do you have to go now?

    Part of me wants to be there,

    Don’t have to say good-bye,

    Spirit World, no compromise,

     

    First snow came,

    Your land covered with Father Sun’s rays,

    So silent on  Mother Earth,

    Filled with prayers,

    Listen so intently,

    Countless signs flying your way,

    We laugh, we cry, we share,

    You receive us all,

     

    Chorus:

    Why do you have to go now?

    Part of me wants to be there,

    Don’t have to say good-bye,

    Spirit World no compromise,

    No compromise.

  • Am I Ready

    Dreams, what for? Some times I wonder, what for?

    Visions, come and go, do we see them, who knows?

    Blessings, pleasure and pain, come together, do we get it?

    Prayers, piece within, silent heart, can we love?

     

    Always wondering where we’re going, where do we belong? where do we belong?

    Walk along the edge and ask yourself, Am I Ready?

    Take my hand into the fire, fear unknown!

     

    Tears let them flow, allow the healing cleanse your soul

    Thoughts, face the east, sunrise in, beauty way!

    Blessings, pleasure and pain, come together, do we get it?

    Prayers, peace within, silent heart, can we love?

     

    Always wondering where we’re going, where do we belong? where do we belong?

    Walk along the edge and ask yourself, Am I Ready?

    Take my hand into the fire, fear unknown!

     

    Walk along the edge and ask yourself, Am I Ready?

    Dreams,            visions,          blessings and prayers

           Am I Ready?                         Am I Ready?

           Face yourself,                         you can do it,

       Am I Ready?

      embrace fears and don’t look back, visions

    Take my hand into the fire, fear unknown!

     embrace fears and

    don’t look back

    fear unknown!

    AM I READY?

  • Blessid Rain

    I heard your prayers, though you didn’t speak,

    Rain for the earth, water for the sheep,

    We need rain, let us pray

     

    The coal mines came and raped the land,

    Sucked it dry where we stand,

    Stripped the earth of her divine,

    Drank her dry, took her life.

     

    So let us pray, we need rain

    (Walk with respect, walk with blessings, walk with love, walk in beauty)

     

    Brother against sister, Hopi and Dine, Peabody’s promise and what they left,

    Lease agreements, filled with lies, Poison our water, curses disguised,

    Forced relocation once again, Can’t feel the earth on concrete land,

    Man made lights, can’t see the stars, Peabody’s Coal Mine burns and scars,

     

     

    Let us pray, we need rain …

    Let us pray, she needs rain…

    (Walk with respect, walk with blessings, walk with love, walk in beauty)

     

    I had a vision, of long ago, my people free….
