lyrics

Barefoot

sail away on a journey to another continent
sail away from one dream to another
sail away to a land where soil hugs your roots
sail away as we all flow together

with barefoot children
whose screams of joy
bring us ever closer

so close so close to her

remember when you pulled me close
and walked on down to a secret place
where the creek rolls round and round the bend
and big ol' trees with gnarled bumps
twisting round and dropping seeds
sharing eyes as their lives reach for the sun

making shadows and soaking warmth

you and i oh little one we sat atop the sunny hill
and followed lizards all through their days
till mama came back home below
so quick we tumbled running down
with stories bubbling up in our eyes

sprouting up and leafing out

oh sorceress you beckon us with bounty's taste
and flutes that call
the dance amidst the shadows of short days
and ancient arts are future arts
and we will see the rainbow bridge
that brought us back to living where we are

smiling bellies and centered souls
